Episode 126: Exploring The Vast Realm Of Sound, Frequencies & How To Optimize Our Lives Through These Modalities (feat. Ian Morris)
I feel it’s safe to say that we are currently living during a very exciting time. With the incredible increase in technology over a very short amount of time that has allowed us to connect with anyone around the world, coupled with the current raising of global consciousness, I personally feel as though I am very fortunate to be alive at this time in history. This being said, although things like technology have allowed us to, in theory, connect more with others from around the world & make our lives easier, it begs the question of why so many of us are so sick & tired? The challenge, as I see it, is that because so many of us are overstimulated & have the ability to distract ourselves effortlessly, the one individual in our lives we have ultimately become less connected with is ourselves. Todays guest on the show is an individual who has made it his life’s work to help those he serves be able to connect back to themselves & has done so by using technology to be able to bring forth frequency healing & musical creations that are not only beautiful to listen to, but that can actually help individuals on a cellular level to connect with themselves, heal from within & come back home to their divine nature as human beings. His mission was ignited by a deep calling to heal his own body & knowing full well that most meditation & healing music available at that time was based in entertainment, rather than healing, he got to work in, quite, literally, being the change that the world of healing was craving so desperately at that time. What resulted was his ability to create & share this type of music worldwide through his business, “Listening To Smile” & in this episode, we will be doing a deep dive into his journey, the unique ways in which he creates his music, the profound healing benefits associated with his music & much, much more!Show Notes: (3:10) What originally got Ian into music? (8:01) Then vs. now for Ian. (12:26) Music acts as a carrier of emotions. (24:12) What is 432hz and why’s it important. (34:18) Ian’s speaker recommendations. (1:01:56) Where you can reach Ian.

Episode 125: A Hero’s Journey Into Shamanism, Following Our Hearts & Becoming The Creators Of Our Reality (feat. Hamilton Souther)
I imagine that everyone tuning into this episode can relate to the notion that for many of us, we seemingly have many passions that might not feel as though they are connected, yet as we continue to move through our lives, the connections between them begin to become clearer. I know this has been my experience in being interested in psychology, spirituality, plant medicines & health for most of my life & it wasn’t until I began Highly Optimized that I began to see the through line between each of them. Todays guest on the show is a man who shares in this notion of having many passions that may not seem to fit together if you looked at each of them independently, however, actually fit together incredibly well when you look at them all from the unionized perspective that we will be diving in to today in this episode. I first found out about this individual when I discovered his work in shamanism, specifically with Ayahuasca & Cannabis, & was blown away at how many synchronicities we shared specifically in the ways in which we spoke about Cannabis & along with his work as a renowned master shaman, he is also a visionary leader, speaker & author who is the founder of Blue Morpho and Co-Founder of FullStock, LiquidEarth and Landslide. For the immense amount of people who have benefitted as a result of his immense wisdom in these areas, it is clear that he is a pioneer in Amazonian Shamanism, Web3 and NFTs who is linking these realms together in a way that I have yet to come across anywhere else in my travels.Show Notes: (3:25) How Hamilton first got into his field(s) of study. (6:44) Using NFT’s to support creators and creatives. (10:31) Creativity is the SOURCE. (18:05) Creating cannabis shamanism. (31:09) What Hamilton saw during a San Pedro ceremony… (37:52) The masculine, according to Ryan. (57:34) Where you can reach Hamilton. (58:23) Hamilton’s final piece of advice for the listeners!

Episode 124: Following Our Hearts, Aligning Our Values & Feeling Grateful (feat: Danny Cola)
When we think about the idea of human optimization, oftentimes we forget that it’s not just by optimizing one aspect of our lives that we reach this type of optimization, but rather it is by integrating many different aspects of our lives under the umbrella of optimization that can help us achieve this goal. In this vain, when I meet someone who is so amazing at taking one system of health & helping to create the necessary flow within it to allow people to find the thread of love within it that leads them to being getting curious about where else in their lives they can improve, I take note. Todays guest on the show is a master in the realms of fitness & specifically the realms of kettlebell, steel mace & club bell fitness. His purpose & mission in life is to build a community around optimizing human potential through fitness & wellness techniques & tools & in this episode, we will be doing a deep dive into his journey, his tips for those who are curious about branching out in their fitness repertoire & whatever else the divine wills into action in this epic heart flow we are about to embark upon.

Episode 123: Optimizing Our Mindset To Break Free Of Our Chains (feat. Jason Goldberg)
While many of us have grown up believing that money is the most valuable resource, we can see the inaccuracy in that when we realize that the one thing billionaires wish for more of when they are nearing the end of their lives is more time. In that vain, we can recognize that it is actually time that is the most valuable resource, rather than money. For me, I have recognized that one of the best ways to hack the time game, so to speak, is by first understanding where you want to go & what goals you have & then finding someone who can help you get to those goals quicker & with less hiccups in the road. Todays guest on the show is a master of time hacking & does so in his coaching work with his clients, many of whom are famous celebrities, to ensure that they can not only save time, but increase their mental performance in learning his proven processes behind how he does what he does. In addition to his coaching work, he is also acting as a disruptor in his life, both in the idea of being a “bacon-atarian”, which, as he describes, is a vegetarian that still eats bacon & in the space of podcasting, in which he has paved his own path to podcasting with his podcast, the “Jason Goldberg Is Ruining Podcasting” podcast & if all of that wasn’t enough, he is also a Tedx speaker, a former rapper that opened up for none less than the Wu Tang Clan themselves & the author behind the incredible book “Prison Break”, which dives into how to vanquish the victim, overcome your obstacles & lead your life. Show Notes: (2:15) When Jason cultivated his “jazz essence” of life. (6:54) The importance of not losing the fun in life and not taking everything so seriously. (10:50) How Jason got into mindset work. (18:05) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (20:10) How to help someone go from a breakdown to a breakthrough. (25:00) Tips on how to avoid analysis paralysis.

Episode 121: Living Life On Our Own Terms & The Path To Finding Fulfillment (feat. Bijou Finney)
I imagine every single person listening to this episode right now can think back to times in which they felt stuck or unsure as of where to go in life. Speaking for myself, the times in which I have felt this way have normally been times in which I was applying too much logic & not enough heart to my experience of life. All too often, I find that many people are allowing their minds to run the show & even though they may be making a good income, have the house they want, drive the car they want, etc., they feel just as empty as they did before they accomplished these “goals.” This is where the dark night of the soul can show up to break us down & allow us to rebuild from a heart centered place, should we decide to answer that call. Todays guest on the show is a woman who is a master in the realms of coaching, consulting, content creation, social media, branding & universally being able to meet those she serves where they are at & guide them in this dark night of the soul process more & more are finding themselves in within the present day as the collective “meaning” of our society dwindles away in place of the invitation for us to individuate, pave our own paths & unlock our own, unique meanings within our experience of life. In addition, she is also extremely well versed in the realm of micro dosing psilocybin to open up the opportunity for heightened creativity, pleasure & purpose within your experience of life & trust me when I say that this episode will ignite the fire of inspiration from deep within your soul & allow each of you to walk away with the necessary increase in passion required to make lasting change within your life.

When we take a good hard look at the world today, it’s easy to see that human beings are being challenged heavily by issues such as anxiety, depression, stress & poor health, all of which correlate to global inflammation in the body. This inflammation that we are seeing rise throughout the world today may be common, however, it is not normal & because so many of us are in situations with our careers, global & societal pressures & more that cannot be remediated overnight, it begs the question of what options we have available to assist us with the inflammation present in many of us that is leading to a decreased quality of life overall.

Episode 119: Creating A Soul-Life Balance & The Path To Do So (feat. Sam Kabert)
When it comes to the idea of business, I have come to recognize that the people that are truly successful within this realm frame business as a game & an adventure. As such, these individuals find ways to not only keep business fun, but also excel in finding ways to “hack” the game if you will, both through marketing &, in many cases, helping others learn how to automate their businesses to allow for less on their plates. If there is one thing I have learned in business it is that tips & tools like the ones I mentioned previously are invaluable if you wish to be able to have time left in your day to spend with family, dive into your hobbies & be able to smell the roses of life while living life on your own terms as an entrepreneur. Todays guest on the show is an absolute juggernaut in the realms of business, including how to delegate using virtual assistants, generating & monetizing content as well as guiding entrepreneurs into how to create a soul-life balance within their lives. He is a serial entrepreneur, an author, has hosted 5 podcasts, including his most recent show, the Soul Seekr podcast, hosts a food show on YouTube, was named to Silicon Valley’s 40 under 40 list at the age of 31, & is an avid lover of all things spiritual, extraterrestrial & multidimensional, among many other topics that he is passionate about within his experience of life. For all of you high achievers out there that are curious how to find more fulfillment in life, this episode is sure to spark your inspiration & allow you to see that not only is it possible, but it can be much easier of a process than I imagine you had thought it could be up until now.Show Notes:(3:00) Sam’s intro into his spirituality & business.(15:39) Sam creating his own path and finding what may have been missing.

Episode 118: Creating An Individualized Approach To Cannabis Consumption (feat. Len May)
For all of you who have been listening to this show for sometime now, you know full well my love & passion for the Cannabis plant. For me, Cannabis was the first teacher in my life that allowed me to question everything I thought I knew about life & the reverberation of that initial teaching has echoed throughout every corner of my life & allowed me to discover my own truth within my experience of life. One of the main challenges, however, within the realm of Cannabis, is that we each have unique endocannabinoid systems & particular physiology that, up until recently, has left many Cannabis users confused as to how to get the best results with this medicine. Todays guest on the show is a man who is not only a fellow Cannabis lover, but is also leading the way in taking the guesswork out of Cannabis by creating individualized dna tests for Cannabis consumers through his company, EndoDNA, that will not only match you with the right Cannabis products for your wellness journey, but will guide you in creating a personalized relationship with this sacred plant teacher. In addition, he is also the host of the “Everything Is Personal” podcast, which dives into Cannabis, music, business, & science & which I was a recent guest on & had an absolute BLAST being a part of & is the author of “Making Cannabis Personal”, which is a book dedicated to exploring many of the same topics we will be discussing today within the realm of individualized Cannabis.

Episode 117: Why It’s NEVER Too Late To Create Your Best Life (feat. Amy Edwards)
When I created this show, I did so with the intention of showcasing the endless opportunities & possibilities available to anyone, regardless of age, gender or location, when they choose to consciously begin arguing for their possibilities, rather than their limitations. It is my belief that when one can do this, especially in the times that their mind, friends & family & even society at large give them reasons not to, that they can initiate massive transformation within their lives. This does not mean that life will be easy, quite the contrary actually, however, life will inevitably challenge us whether we choose to make it challenge us for what we do want or challenge us for what we don’t want. In my experience, however, only one of those scenarios can allow us to see life happening FOR us, rather than TO us & allow us to experience the transformation within that flipping of the script. Todays guest on the show is a master in the art of transformation & has made it her mission in life to help badasses just like you overcome anything holding them back, rock life all the way & claim their best lives through up leveled habits, mindset shifts & more. She is the host of “The Amy Edwards” show, which is a show dedicated to helping its listeners achieve their healthiest selves, live their best lives & better their relationships, is an author, a rock & roll musician, a mother & if all of those hats weren’t enough, she is also a radio personality on Austin 360 radio. For all of you transformation freaks out there, this episode is sure to charge your batteries & allow each of you to tap into the inspiration necessary to create profound & lasting change within your life.

If you’ve been in the realm of self development for even a little while, I am sure you’ve heard mention of things such as manifestation & the law of attraction. When I first heard of these things years back, they sounded too good to be true & so rather than just refute them altogether, I decided to play a game with myself & begin diving into them. Now that it’s almost a decade later, I honestly don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for that original experimental phase with these concepts, though I have a strong feeling it wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am today, living the version of my life that literally feels like a dream each day. Stopping by to share her time & expertise on these topics & more with us today is a woman who as soon as we connected, we clicked & spent over an hour diving deep down the rabbit holes of manifestation, sound healing, plant medicines & more. She is the founder of “Art Of Attraction” & co creator of “In A Shituation” which both seek to help those who are suffering from limiting beliefs & limiting stories rise above them through simple, empowering practices that allow them to manifest more joy, happiness, love, wealth & health into their lives. In addition, she is also a Tedx speaker & truly walks the walk when it comes to practicing what she preaches & within this episode, we will be diving into her journey, her tips for those of you listening looking to create a positive change in your lives starting today & much, much more!

Episode 115: Following Your Heart, Overcoming Life’s Challenges & Laughing All The Way To The Bank (feat. Jessie Salas)
Something that i feel is universal in our world is the notion that we will all inevitably face challenges within our lives. This being said, what separates the individuals that see those challenges as opportunities from the individuals who allow those challenges to become blockades that prevent them from overcoming them? In my experience, this difference rests on not only our mindset, but the subsequent views & perception we have upon the world around us. This is why I feel it is SO crucial to not only work on our mindset & dive into why we believe what we believe about life, but to also make friends with the inner critic within us that tells us we can’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t or shouldn’t consciously choose to embark upon a new way of living & see our inner critic as our best friend in disguise & the only aspect of us willing to beat us down in hopes of us using those criticisms to fuel us into the most epic journey of life possible for us in our lives. Todays guest on the show is a man who is a prime example of someone who has made friends with not only his inner critic, but also his fear & has allowed these positive reframes of these aspects of himself to propel him into living life on his own terms & creating the life of his dreams. He is a retired firefighter, where he spent 17 years passionately moving into some of the most dangerous situations on earth to help save other peoples lives, is an absolute juggernaut in the space of handling high stress situations & finding comfort within those discomforts & has now taken those experiences & moved into the role of program director for a system of training called Foundation Training, which is based on teaching how to take the burden of supporting the body out of your joints & put it back where it belongs, which is in your muscles. For all of you high achievers & go getters out there, prepare to go on a journey into how to not only re-evaluate what is possible for you, but to ensure you are able to stay balanced, regulated & healthy while shooting for the stars in your experience of life. Show Notes: (3:00) Jessie’s enjoyment of fighting fires, working under pressure & human design . (22:35) Fueling your passions, avoiding falling into victimhood & being your own biggest cheerleader. (44:00) Claiming your day, the importance of breathe work & always being open to learn. (1:33:44) Quinn’s final piece of advice for the listeners! Check out our sponsor: FreedomBuilderz.com!

Episode 114: Organic Cannabis Cultivation, Korean Natural Farming & Working With Mother Nature (feat. Quinn Caliendo)
Anyone who has been listening to this show for some time now has heard me speak to my love for organic Cannabis & my passion for helping others learn how to cultivate organic Cannabis in order to foster a deeper connection both with the plant & the earth as a whole. I truly believe that if each of us makes even a one percent effort to do our part in farming our foods & Cannabis organically, we could revolutionize the world & begin to reverse the damage that has been done to our top soils stemming from conventional farming practices. Todays guest on the show is a man who when I first saw at a local music festival, I was blown away by his break dancing & fire spinning skills. This being said, imagine my surprise when I walked into an organic Cannabis cultivation conference, began chatting with a gentleman about his journey as an entrepreneur in the legal industry in Maine & realized it was the same person I had seen fire spinning & break dancing back a couple of years prior. As usually happens with synchronicities like that one, him & I continued to chat afterward & ended up attending a 5 day Korean natural farming workshop together & since then, we have both dove into Cannabis & organic farming in our own ways & continue to nerd out together regarding the latest news in organic farming, Cannabis genetics & much, much more!

When I think about the concept of life, I like to view it through the lens of a game that, similar to other games, there is rules for.

Episode 112: How To Improve Your Movement For A Higher Quality Of Life (feat. Camron Angus)
Within the vast realm of health, let alone the vast realm of fitness, there are SO many different modalities one can employ to ensure they are staying healthy, fit & mobile as they age. A common misnomer that I see society moving out of in the present day in a big way is the misnomer that the body “breaks down” as we age. In my experience, I have found that the famous saying “move it or lose it” is one of the best philosophies to embody if we wish to be active & mobile throughout the course of our lives & allow our lives to be ones which are thriving in nature, rather than ones in which we merely survive. This being said, with more information than ever currently available to us, what are some of the best ways to stay active, mobile & in that state of thriving? In my personal fitness & health journey, one of my best kept secrets is that of the company Stick Mobility, which focuses on the trifecta of strength, mobility & coordination all in one system & todays guest on the show is not only a stick mobility coach, a CHEK trained practitioner & a chiropractic assistant, but he is also someone who has gone through his fair share of challenges within these realms in order to come out the other side with invaluable information for each person listening on how easy it can be to supercharge your health, fitness & mobility in order to live the version of your life that is the greatest & grandest in nature. This week, on Episode 112 of The Highly Optimized Podcast, we talk with personal trainer, stick mobility coach, CHEK Practitioner, and Chiropractic Therapy Assistant Cameron Angus about: (9:49) The Way of the Superior Man & not fitting into the corporate lifestyle. (20:05) Stick Mobility. (28:11) Learning new skills to fuel your passions. (37:52) Gym Mentality. (57:02) Knowing your “Why”. (1:07:22) Outro & One last question!

Episode 111: Finding the Flow in Life (feat. Tyler Le Floch)
When it comes to the idea of masculinity, much of the world is mistakenly confusing what true masculine energy is with the immature, boy centered version of this energy we commonly see running amok in todays world. This is, in a big part, due to us losing many of the wise elders & initiatory processes that have been used since the dawn of time to help boys evolve into men within society. This being said, there is now a big movement within the world of self development to fill in this missing gap & allow the true divinity of masculine nature to once again come forth. This version of masculinity is not afraid of the divine feminine, as the immature masculine is & instead recognizes that the balance between these two energies, which is often referred to as the concepts of yin & yang, is essential to a mature, balanced approach to being a true man. Todays guest on the show is a man who is spearheading this movement, both within his own development as a mature man through self development programs & practices & in the work he does with men, such as his work as lead coach for the Alpha Hippie program, which I went through & can speak to the incredible benefits of maturing as a man that the program is centered around. In addition, he is also a dear brother of mine who has shared in some absolutely incredible memories within my life & in this episode, we will be diving into his journey, what tips he has for men listening that are looking to embark on this path & much, much more.Show Notes: (4:13) Dealing with addictions.
