EP06: Beyond Holistic Medicine - A Different Perspective About the Coronavirus
Beyond Holistic Medicine - A Different Perspective About the Coronavirus We're living in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 has crashed the financial market. It’s a lot more serious than SARS, health-wise. Here's a different perspective on the ongoing global crisis for this week's episode, which focuses on holistic medicine. Stay tuned as Nina Hermann welcomes her special guest, Andi Locke Mears. Andi Locke Mears is a fierce advocate for health, a German new medicine teacher, and myth buster. As a naturopath helping people achieve their health goals, her entire world changed in 2009. She stumbled across a book about German New Medicine. After attending the first of many pieces of training in Canada and Austria, she realized there was a missing link in health. It wasn't just about bringing balance back to the body, learning your life's lessons, or about the mind/body/spirit connection. It's about the predictability of the natural, biological wisdom of our body's ability to adapt. She was an armed security guard for US Secretary of State Muskie, a national karate champion, and started on pointe in ballet in her late 50's. Andi joined a spiritual tour of Egypt and ended up being in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid in Giza during a full moon and a solar eclipse, which was an illuminating experience. Part One of ‘Beyond Holistic Medicine - A Different Perspective About the Coronavirus’ Once there was a German physician in his early forties, a very healthy guy, who had never been sick a day in his life. He got a phone call one day that his teenage son had been accidentally shot while on vacation. It's a phone call no parent wants to get. Four months later, his son died in his arms. You can imagine how devastating that is for any parent, but especially for a physician. Shortly after that, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After his surgery, he thought of studying the human brain. It was the early 90s, and the C.T. scan was new to hospitals. When he visited the University of Munich, he took C.T. scans of everyone in the cancer clinic. He realized he could see a circle like a bullseye in every single person's C.T. scan. No one could explain it. But he's a brilliant guy and a forward thinker. Out of curiosity, he started talking with his patients about their lives. He took their C.T. scan, health, emotional and medical history. After tying it together, he realized everyone with this circle had the same kind of trauma before their diagnosis. He took it another step. He figured out that everyone with this circle had the same cancer. This pattern became obvious to him. He started to look at tens of thousands of C.T. scans, analyzed them with their medical histories, and he was able to map out the entire brain. Upon discovery, he found out that every disease begins with a conflict shock. This is a shock to the system. He discovered two phases everyone goes through. There are no mysteries anymore as to why someone gets a diagnosis or a symptom that they have. We know by looking at the symptoms of what their conflict shock was. We can predict what the two phases will look like for them and how it will be resolved. There's a trauma, something that's happened. It also depends on how the person perceives that trauma. The different types of trauma can relate to different perceptions. They can have different reactions. He discovered that there are two phases to every disease. “If we're at a heightened level of stress, we're more susceptible to conflict shocks.” — Andi Locke (29:18-29:22) We have a conflict shock. Instantly our body says that we're hardwired for survival. Our body goes into motion and it starts a program. There is cell growth somewhere in our body because our brain knows to resolve this conflict. We need to have a certain organ that's stronger and bigger with more cells. Our brain knows we need to have cell loss somewhere in our bodies. This sounds counterintuitive but is accurate. We need to have cell loss in our body to make it through this program, through functional loss. That will help us to survive. It's our best mechanism. Here are some facts about cell growth, cell loss, and the loss of function. Let's say you're sitting in the doctor's office. They have a very grave face on. You've had some test results come in. They give you the news that you have cancer. You're devastated. The body has a death fright conflict going on. We need more air. We create more lung cells so we can process more air. To help us survive. That's how our lungs help us. Let's say we're sitting on a crowded city bus. Somebody comes in and sits down next to us. They are blowing their nose, sneezing, and coughing. You can just feel their germs going all over you. Two days later, you start coughing and sneezing. Perhaps you did not catch a common cold from that person on the bus. Maybe there was nothing to catch. You created it. You had a conflict. You started losing cells in your sinuses right there on the bus. The biological purpose of that is so you can no longer smell them. Therefore, out of sight, out of mind, you're fine. Your body is taking care of you. Functional life is another one. Let's go with hearing loss. Let's say there's something you don't want to hear. You're hearing it over and over again. Pretty soon, it feels like something's wrong with your hearing. You’re feeling the need to get it checked. It turns out it was a functional loss because you don't want to hear whatever it is that you were hearing. Some of the common ones are sore throats. This makes it hard to swallow something or causes digestion issues. This is not psychological. This is biological. When you have a conflict shock, you're going to feel all kinds of emotions. They don't cause eventual sickness. What we call being sick, that’s not the cause. The cause is a biological program designed to help you survive. It's a mother step. It's way beyond your mind, body spirit. It’s a major factor in hanging healing. Part Two of ‘Beyond Holistic Medicine - A Different Perspective About the Coronavirus’ At this point, it's important to start establishing who you can talk with. Someone who's not letting fear run their life. It's more important that we stay as a community. We should stay connected regularly through technology. “It's important that we stay connected as a community through the use of technology even though we're under quarantine.” — Nina Hermann (36:53-36:57) There are many creative things you can do with your family like playing old board games or making popcorn to have a movie night together. Watch a comedy. Something great is going to come out of this global crisis. With all the things we've taken for granted, it's teaching us how to slow down, reset, and see the real beauty this life has to offer.

EP5: Home Wellness, Maximizing Downtime with Dianne A. Allen
Home Wellness, Maximizing Downtime with Dianne A. Allen “We need time to draw within to become in alignment with ourselves.” — Nina Hermann Have you ever felt so tired that you just wanted to take the time to unwind? Downtime is just as crucial to success as working hard. Sometimes you need to slow down to speed up. Just like a vehicle, you need to refuel it. You need regular service. In this week's episode, Nina Hermann welcomes Dianne A. Allen as her special guest, as they talk about home wellness, mainly, how you can maximize downtime. Part One of ‘Home Wellness, Maximizing Downtime with Dianne A. Allen’ Dianne A. Allen is a visionary leader whose mission is to educate and inspire you to touch your inner fire and allow that beauty to come forth into the world. She believes that we all have a message that is healing and uplifting somewhere deep inside. She has designed her Someone Gets Me podcast to help you awaken and live from your inner beauty, fire, and truth. “Loving connection is so vital to our health and liveliness.” — Nina Hermann (10:48-10:52) People from different parts of the world are facing significant downtime. With all the bad news on television, you want to reach out to others for help. Isolation can make you feel lonely and challenging. Only a few people realize there are benefits to having to take this time to rest and recover. Quarantine time can be a blessing in disguise for many people without them realizing it. Part Two of ‘Home Wellness, Maximizing Downtime with Dianne A. Allen’ We are required to put social distancing into practice for our safety. However, we still need to be able to connect. A loving connection is just so vital to our health and liveliness. Whatever is happening in the world right now will motivate us to be more united. We're taught in society that loneliness means not having enough people around. We've been trained wrong. We need time to draw within to become in alignment with ourselves. Most of the time, you're busy, so this is the perfect opportunity for you to spend time on things that you're not able to do during the busy weekdays. “There are many other circumstances for individuals having downtime.” — Nina Hermann (23:19-22:40) There are many ways to make your day productive. Gardening, writing a journal, painting, drawing, doing activities related to meditation, cooking, watching a movie series, cleaning the house, cooking, reading, and many more. This generation is blessed because technology is innovating. There are different audio and video calling services like Zoom or Skype to connect with others. Perhaps have an online conversation with someone while drinking your tea. Getting extra time at home is a big bonus for all of us. So, take all the time that you need to recharge and make the most of your downtime. How To Connect with Nina Hermann: The Vibrant Living Group helps make Real Estate easy.

EP4: Managing Stress and Anxiety While Selling Your Home
Managing Stress and Anxiety While Selling Your Home “Selling a home can be very stressful and produce a lot of anxiety.” — Nina Hermann The easiest way to overwhelm yourself is to think of all the things you need to do at the same time. It doesn’t help. When people overwhelm themselves, it pushes them into a reflective state as opposed to taking action state. When you put a lot of things on your plate, then it will even push you into an inactive state where nothing gets done. It can be paralyzing when you think about all those lists. In this week's episode, Nina Hermann welcomes Jason Schneider as her special guest as they talk about managing stress and anxiety while selling your home. Part One of ‘Managing Stress and Anxiety While Selling Your Home’ Jason Schneider is the current president of the Institute of Neuro-Semantics USA. He has been in the business of coaching and training people to develop themselves personally and professionally using the technologies of NLP & coaching full time since 2010. Through his content, coaching, training, mentoring, and consulting, he aims to empower every student to experience more fulfillment in their own lives, and to live more congruently and authentically. “You perceive the universe through a state of mind.” — Nina Hermann The way you communicate reflects your behavior. Whatever state that you're in is going to determine how you interact and what other people pick up. In return, the recipient will filter your message based on whatever state that person is into. So, if someone's in a closed-off state, it doesn't matter what you're going to tell them. Your messages are not going to get you the best of your potential. The first step before you can get in that state is to manage your feelings. Think about the activity that you can give your best to. Maybe you want to be focused. Perhaps you want to be more energized or more relaxed. Maybe you want to have peace, be appreciative, or be of service to somebody. Sometimes are afraid about a meeting that's going to be coming up tomorrow. then. We get upset at ourselves. The state that we bring can determine whether we get ourselves into these downward spirals. On the other hand, we also have the option to bring ourselves into powerful and transcendent states that allow us to be excited about our conversations. Here’s the reality of the situation. A lot of times, things aren’t going to go exactly as you planned. One of the best things that you can practice is acceptance. Accept that you're upset. That you're frustrated. When you use acceptance, it doesn't matter how deep you are into a negative spiral. Whatever emotion that you put on top of the pile will always influence and govern everything below, just like how a CEO oversees everything below it in the hierarchy. Part Two of ‘Managing Stress and Anxiety While Selling Your Home’ Negotiation. It can be the most stressful and anxiety-producing part of the selling process. You get an offer. You’re offended that it's too low. You feel taken advantage of. “Difficult negotiations are stressful.” — Nina Hermann (12:25-12:29) A good negotiation always starts with a no. It's better to start with no. Then, work your way to a yes. It lets you make clear what you don't want. It establishes what is acceptable and what is unacceptable. If someone throws a low number, it's not about you. If anything, it's more about them. There are many reasons why someone would do that. It's information that you can't learn from and then kind of roll it over into the next round of the negotiation, the next round of discussion. So, taking things personally is not going to help. When we start to get anxious or frustrated by ourselves and the world, we tend to lose access to our resourcefulness. We tend to lose access to our resources that allow us to perform at our best. Practice being centered. That will be useful throughout that process. Especially in the process of selling your home. How To Connect The Vibrant Living Group helps make real estate easy.

EP3: How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Buyer
How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Buyer “You want somebody that you know that you can feel safe with and trust.” — Nina Hermann (01:01-01:06) Every person wants to work with a professional agent who has a positive attitude and won't take advantage of anybody. You want somebody who understands and respects all parties. It will help make the transaction smooth and puts you at peace by eliminating some of the added stress of the home buying process. In this week's episode, Nina Hermann talks about finding a real estate agent for the home buyer. Part One of ‘How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Buyer' One of the first things that you need to take a look at is if they have any existing contracts under their belts. If it’s a new agent who doesn't have any contracts under the belt, they may have a mentor. Something to keep in mind with new agents is that they are eager to learn, eager to help, want to learn the business, and are willing to ask questions. So, just because they're a new agent doesn't mean that you need to discount them or ignore them. Sometimes they can be as great as experienced agents. “You want somebody who's willing to do additional research for you because they want you to find the perfect home.” — Nina Hermann (01:58-02:06) Find an agent who listens to you. One that demonstrates they understand your needs and desires. Somebody who resonates with you, that you feel that you connect to, and can trust. When it comes to the home buying process, it involves a lot of personal details. You also want somebody who communicates with you. There's nothing worse than being excited and eager to find your new home, and hearing crickets. It is very time-consuming to find the right home and do the research. An agent who you don't hear from in days or a week may not be the best candidate for you. Especially if you are on a timeline, or eager and excited. You don't want somebody to deplete your excitement. You also want somebody who's going to work with you in your criteria. It will often take additional research. It will take phone calls. It's not as simple as putting in some filters in the MLS, putting you on a quick campaign, and sending any listings that come up. You want somebody who's got the time and willingness to be able to do that for you. Someone who wants you to find the perfect home to meet your needs. Part Two of ‘How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Buyer’ You'll want your agent to work with the cooperating agent. Sometimes agents don't want to work nicely with each other. They want to protect their clients. Sometimes it requires both parties to compromise to work together and find solutions. You want an agent who's going to be a team player with the cooperating agent.You want an agent who's going to educate you through the process, let you know what's going to be done, and give you options on how to handle things. There's no one way to do everything. There's always a plethora of options. You want somebody who's experienced, willing to ask the right questions, and able to work with other people to accomplish those things. “You want somebody who's able to communicate and do what they say.” — Nina Hermann (03:59-04:03) Some agents will require you to sign a contract to work with them. There are loyalty agreements that outline and identify the responsibilities of both the agent as well as the clients. So you know what they're doing for you and what your responsibility is to them. The home buying and search processes are both very time-consuming. You want to respect the agent's time, but you also want them to be able to communicate and do the things that they say they're going to do for you. If they're not doing those things, it's best to speak up about it and let them know it's not working. It is up to you whether or not you want to sign a contract and be in a committed relationship with that agent. Find someone who's willing to do the right thing for you. Talk to at least two to three agents before you decide, because once you make the decision, it is a commitment on both parts. Prepare a criteria list of what you're looking for in an agent.

EP2: How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Seller
When selling a home, it is critical to find a real estate agent that has your best interest in mind. Someone that you can feel safe and comfortable with. It will make all the difference. In this week's episode, Nina Hermann talks about finding the right real estate agent for the home seller. Part One of ‘How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Seller’ If a new agent hasn't listed a property yet, it's not advisable to discount them entirely. Oftentimes they have mentors, the time, and the dedication. They're eager to learn, excited, and they're willing to ask questions to make sure that it's done right. Sometimes they can be just as great, if not better than an experienced agent. “Find an agent who's willing to communicate with you on a regular basis and keep you up to date.” — Nina Hermann (01:25-01:43) Second, you want somebody who will listen to you. A person who resonates with you. You want somebody who is going to listen to your concerns. Who is going to address them? Selling your property is a big deal. You have invested a lot of time and energy into your property. You have a lot of pride in it. You have built a lot of memories in it, so it is essential for you. You also want somebody that you feel safe with and that you trust. This agent is bringing people into your home. You want somebody who's going to give you tips and educate you on how to keep your home safe as well. You want an agent who's willing to communicate with you regularly. The selling process can be time-consuming. It can take some time. You want an agent who's going to keep you up to date. What are they doing for your property? Who has seen it? What’s the feedback? You want somebody who's going to provide that information to you. You can have peace of mind and make modifications if necessary. Part Two of ‘How to Find a Real Estate Agent for The Home Seller’ You may be moving to another city, or have a deadline. You want that information as soon as possible. So, an agent who regularly communicates with you is vital. You'll also want to take a look at how they market your property. The number of views of your property is key. It comes down to numbers. The more views of your property, the more it's exposed, the more likely you are to find a buyer for your home. What are they doing to market your property? Are they using social media? Are they using video? Sometimes it comes down to brochures and print. Every agent has a different idea. They have different creative senses. “Find an agent that you can feel safe and comfortable with.” — Nina Hermann (05:24-05:26) Look at their portfolio and what they've done for other clients. Were you happy with the photos? Were you pleased with the videos that they produced or their social media? Can you see the detailed information? Frequently, they have brochures or a website that they can show you what they've done. Are you happy with those vendors? You'll also want an agent who has done their research to show they know more about your property. They can't know everything because they haven't done a walkthrough. Have they taken the time to at least do some research so that they can have a better and more informed conversation with you about your property? When you meet with that agent, you will want that agent to walk through your property and provide suggestions. Always keep an open mind. You want an agent to provide feedback because they know what buyers are looking for. When homeowners leave personal items out or clutter out, it can turn off a buyer. Agents are going to give you the advice to help you sell the property. Please don't be offended. Do what you can to incorporate it. You want somebody who's going to provide honest and open feedback. You may have an agent who suggests different things that you can do to stage the home, or they'll bring in a consultant that makes recommendations to stage the home. Sometimes staging makes a huge difference, especially in a vacant house or a very sterile feeling. Home staging can sell the property, so take their advice. You'll want an agent who is willing to work with the cooperating broker and somebody who respects their colleagues. You want them to do what's right for you, but in the end, it has to be right for everyone. How to Get Involved The Vibrant Living Group helps make Real Estate easy.

EP01: Buying a Home for The First Time
Planning to buy a new house, but uncertain about the process? Afraid that you might miss something important? Here's the comprehensive guide to getting you to the offer table, hassle-free. You've just landed on the right page, so please keep reading. In this week's episode, Nina Hermann talks about buying a home for the first time. Part One of ‘Buying a Home for The First Time’ How do you plan to buy this home? Cash or with a mortgage? If you plan for a mortgage, there are a few more steps involved. Start identifying how much money you have for your down payment. If you don't have any, start looking at a plan to build that nest egg. Look at your credit score. Is it a credit score that a mortgage lender would want? If not, you'll want to start taking steps to improve your credit score. Sometimes it can take up to a year to make that happen. Plan ahead if you want to get pre-approved. You want to meet with a few different mortgage lenders and identify what you can spend on your new home. Just because you're approved for a certain amount doesn't necessarily mean that's what you need to spend. Finances are a massive stressor, so you must be comfortable with your payments and satisfied with the amount of money that you're spending. But having that amount ahead of time and knowing what you can spend is helpful when you go and look at properties to make sure that you're not looking at properties that you can't afford. “Keep in mind what is important to you and what may be important to the other party.” — Nina Hermann (09:18-09:24) Identify what you want in your home and be very specific. How many bedrooms and bathrooms? Do you like the outdoors? Do you want a pool? Do you want an outdoor kitchen? An office? Maybe you work from home and you want a separate office or a bonus room for the kids. What kind of features do you want that support the lifestyle for you and your family? Consider activities around the home that support your lifestyle. What do you enjoy doing that your family enjoys too? It also involves your community. What kind of society do you want to be a part of? What amenities do you like? You would love for every single little thing on your criteria list to come true. Sometimes that isn't the case. Prioritize what is non-negotiable. Identify those non-negotiables so you can easily eliminate what’s not going to work. Prioritize what's on your criteria list. Identifying those things upfront helps determine what home is perfect for you. Once you have identified that criteria, you want to prioritize it. Part Two of ‘Buying a Home for The First Time’ Find an agent that you can trust. One who will listen to what your desires and needs are. A seller is responsible for paying the commission of the buyer agent. Your agent should assist you in finding that perfect home, or you're not responsible for paying them. Whatever house you decide to buy, the seller of that home is paying the commission. In some cases, part of the negotiation process may change that. In general, the seller is responsible for paying the commission to the buyer's agent. Some brokerages do have a transaction fee. This is a small nominal fee that would be charged to you as a buyer that would be taken out at closing. It's not an upfront fee. Sometimes it's negotiable. Sometimes the agents may decide to make a deal with you. There are brokerages out there who do not charge a transactional fee. After you've found that agent, you want to set up a time to go through your criteria list. You want to make sure that they know exactly what you want. The multiple listing service, also known as the MLS, is great, but it is not perfect. There are filters that can help in the search process. Sometimes it requires additional information or research. You either have to go through photos, call the agent, the community or do more digging to identify those things. Sometimes you may find a property that you think may work. Then, it turns out it doesn't because there's an error in the listing. Maybe you may have to revise your list once you start looking at some properties. Identify the right property for you. Once you find a house that meets your prioritized criteria list, you'll feel and know it. “Your agent is there to assist you in finding the perfect home, you're not responsible for paying them.” — Nina Hermann (04:01-04:07) There are cases where there may be multiple offers on a home. Ideally, your agent is in communication with the listing agent. They will know if there's any interest or other offers on that property. If there are other offers, then you will need to act sooner than later. Even if there are multiple offers, it doesn't mean it comes down to price. There are terms and criteria that the seller may be looking for that supercede price. Identify the terms that are important to you. Don't overpay. Be confident in what you can offer. Consider your mindset. Buying and selling a home is stressful for both parties. It's essential to respect the other party. Go into it with a positive attitude. Bear in mind what is important to you and what may be necessary to the other party. Be aware of what the seller may be going through. This home is their pride and joy. This home is something that they've put a lot of sweat and tears into. They have significant memories in this home. They could have built this home. But it doesn't mean you need to get involved in any drama. The best thing you can do as a buyer is to have respect. Practice mindfulness of what this home is to them. Don’t go into this situation trying to take advantage of them. Don’t beat them down to get a home at a great deal. Several processes are involved when going through this transaction. The more fair it is for both parties, the more that both parties are willing to work together. Being able to respect the other party and get through the transaction with peace of mind is crucial.

EP00: Introduction To Vibrant Living Podcast
Why Do You Love Where You Live? “I’m a veteran, a healer, and a real estate professional passionate about serving.”— Nina Hermann If you could go back and do things from a younger age, how would you pursue your goals differently? Everybody has their turning points in life where a big decision leads to a new chapter, one you'll love for the rest of your life. In this week's episode, Nina Hermann talks about loving where you live. Part One of ‘Why Do You Love Where You Live?’ Nina Hermann's journey started when she served in the United States Army. She dealt with a significant amount of pain, body aches, neck pain, and back pain. She came to the point of having to take three types of pain medications twice a day every day, and that lasted for four and a half years. Nina knew it wasn't curing her pain. She started searching for something that could help heal her body. Eventually, I became a licensed massage therapist and a personal trainer. Nina also studied food healing and opened her healthy food truck, but here comes the turning point of her life. It came to a point where she felt like she wasn't helping people the way she wanted to. It led her to a decision where she had to pursue something else. “I’ve always loved the idea of merging real estate with health and wellness.” — Nina Hermann Nina has always loved building things. Unfortunately, she never dared to pursue a career in the real estate industry because she thought she could never make it. Nina wanted to be in alignment. She felt this overwhelming passion for helping people heal their bodies and have been looking for ways of merging real estate with health and wellness. It pushed her to rebrand herself as a vibrant living consultant for real estate. She's now helping people not only find the home that is perfect for them but also living in a way, in a lifestyle that meets their needs so that they can feel connected and inspired. Looking back, she can see her experience in the army as very stressful and lonely. It made a significant impact on her health, so she started exploring what it was going to take for her to feel alive. She wanted to explore where she wanted to be, what activities she wanted to do, and who she wants to connect with. The moment she started seeking out those things, it made such a big significant difference in her life. Her story is the backbone of where she is today. She is a veteran, a healer, a real estate professional, and passionate about serving. She loves to see people living in the perfect home and be surrounded by the people they love. Part Two of ‘Why Do You Love Where You Live?’ What does it mean to love where you live? It's your home, it's your physical home where you live. It is the activities and the local opportunities around you to enjoy those things that you love to do, and it is also your community. Do you like your physical home? Do you love waking up, enjoying walking around in it, and feeling comfortable being there? If not, that doesn't mean that you need to sell your home and move, but there may be some minor things that you can do so that you can transform your home like rearranging furniture or having someone to stage it. “When you’re living and loving where you’re at, others are empowered to do the same.” — Nina Hermann Maybe some activities can make where you live even more special. Perhaps you need to find people that like to do the same things that you do. It could be your neighbors, it could be family members, or it could be friends. But finding people that you can connect with is such an essential part of our everyday life. So, finding a place where you can make those connections is significant. If there's nothing out there, start it and then invite others to join you. That's what makes the world go around. How to Connect The Vibrant Living Group helps make Real Estate easy.
