Transcripts

Speaker:

Music.

Speaker:

Hello, my name is Teemu Arina and today I'm talking to no one else but Pavel Stuchlik, NOA|AON.

Speaker:

I've been really happy to know him.

Speaker:

He's been coming to Biohacker Summits to make excellent performances with my event

Speaker:

customers, but what I really value about him is the self-transformation he has gone through.

Speaker:

We were all busy in our lives and he's been definitely successful looking looking

Speaker:

at his bio, in terms of just being someone who goes around the world,

Speaker:

seven-figure entrepreneur, investor, DJ, producer,

Speaker:

certified ambassador of peace, Wim Hof instructor, all that.

Speaker:

But he has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to how we can really tap back

Speaker:

into our bodies, I would say, tap into our potential.

Speaker:

That's how I see it in a way, be in the present moment.

Speaker:

And he does that through music, through words, through workshops,

Speaker:

through experiences, retreats, lectures, all of that.

Speaker:

And on top of that, he's an absolute geek when it comes to this,

Speaker:

because he uses technology in his performances.

Speaker:

And also, that's what he incorporates into

Speaker:

in the lifestyle that he promotes. And he's involved in different things from

Speaker:

technologies for protecting ourselves from electromagnetic radiation to health

Speaker:

and wellness solutions that can help us all.

Speaker:

He has spoken in many different other events as well, in addition to Parker Summit.

Speaker:

I think he's one of the guys who is always in a different country every time I look on social media.

Speaker:

So I don't know how you're doing it, but you look great. So welcome to the the

Speaker:

show, man. Thank you very much.

Speaker:

And I have so many admirations and gratitude for you because what you're opening

Speaker:

to the world is just unpayable.

Speaker:

You're allowing people to have a space to educate and motivate and inspire.

Speaker:

And so thank you on behalf of everybody for what you're doing.

Speaker:

I think we're on the same mission to bring people together on this path of self-transformation,

Speaker:

self-actualization self-mastery we

Speaker:

gone through certain things on our own but most

Speaker:

important things in life are shared and we learn from each other and

Speaker:

one of the important i would say passages in life is to move from just being

Speaker:

a humble student to being someone who's teaching and transmitting that knowledge

Speaker:

forward because that's also part of your own growth i learned it early on that

Speaker:

the best way to learn is to teach others.

Speaker:

And through that, you actually really embody your teachings.

Speaker:

So I guess that's what we're both doing.

Speaker:

And thank you so much for doing your part, which is very hands-on and immersive with people.

Speaker:

This System Reset experience that combines breath, dance, and meditation.

Speaker:

Sound healing, is incredible.

Speaker:

And as a DJ producer. There's so many people who are just like,

Speaker:

I would say like mixing other people's work,

Speaker:

like just pressing play and there's like some record playing and you do some

Speaker:

breathwork, but you're conducting this whole experience and deciding it yourself

Speaker:

and with your wonderful wife and kids as well.

Speaker:

Incredible to witness. So I would love to just dive into your background.

Speaker:

Would you describe yourself as that you were first a DJ producer?

Speaker:

I mean, you have released music on major labels like Vardar Music and so on.

Speaker:

You've been DJing since you were 12.

Speaker:

So describe your journey up until the point where you decided to get so much

Speaker:

more hands-on with your audience. Yeah, absolutely.

Speaker:

I'm born and raised in Czech Republic, where I originally dabbled into DJing from a young age.

Speaker:

I've always loved music. I actually grew up dancing as well,

Speaker:

from ballroom to the modern dance that we see today.

Speaker:

And I put it on a back burner. So when I was about 15, 16 years old,

Speaker:

I started cycling a lot and I fell in love with the energy what bike can give

Speaker:

you and the freedom that you can experience.

Speaker:

And so I then decided I want to become a professional athlete.

Speaker:

And essentially, at first, you can't do the nights and days all together.

Speaker:

And it really wasn't until I was 17 years old when my dad gave me a choice.

Speaker:

You either go to school, your life is paid for, or you do your little cycling

Speaker:

thing and you're going to have to figure it out.

Speaker:

And that's, by the way, when I first dabbled into becoming an entrepreneur,

Speaker:

I found a loophole in Alibaba and eBay.

Speaker:

This is well over 10 years ago when Alibaba wasn't as trusted as it is today

Speaker:

and people didn't really know what to think of it.

Speaker:

And what I did back then, I actually, I put carbon frames because kids in Czech

Speaker:

or Europe, they can't necessarily afford four or $5,000 carbon bike frames.

Speaker:

So I found some for $500 at cost on Alibaba.

Speaker:

I put the picture on eBay and I sold it through eBay to US or European customer with a markup.

Speaker:

And then as soon as that person bought it on eBay, I shipped it directly from

Speaker:

from China to their homes. And that was my first business.

Speaker:

And I actually, with traveling so much for cycling, I ended up making it to professional cycling.

Speaker:

And essentially, the last two years, I raced for a Chinese team that was based in Holland.

Speaker:

And so we lived part of the year in Europe.

Speaker:

And in the other part, we did all of the Southeast Asia, Tour of China,

Speaker:

Australia, Australia, Southland in New Zealand.

Speaker:

And essentially what I did, every city we went to, I start talking to the bike

Speaker:

shops and I told them that they need their own custom bike frame.

Speaker:

And I got into the custom bike frames essentially and build this network of

Speaker:

cycling stores around the world through the travels.

Speaker:

But that also led me to a complete crash.

Speaker:

And so when I was 20 years old, I had a first big pivotal moment. I fell into depression.

Speaker:

I had suicidal thoughts. I got diagnosed with Epstein-Barr chronic fatigue.

Speaker:

My body was just smashed from not recovering.

Speaker:

I was on a call with the factories when I needed to sleep and get ready for the next day.

Speaker:

And so my body shut down in a Czech national race and I woke up in the hospital

Speaker:

and that was the ending for my cycling career.

Speaker:

That right there led me to discover biohacking. That led me to discover Wim Hof.

Speaker:

That led me to really understand this body temple because I couldn't function anymore.

Speaker:

And so I moved to America and I put all of the endurance into business.

Speaker:

At first, I had to figure out how do you get visa? And so I went in there for E2 visa.

Speaker:

And for a little bit, I actually had a sushi restaurant, which didn't end up qualifying.

Speaker:

And I got denied without prejudice to be coming to America.

Speaker:

And so I didn't give up. I ended up finding Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt chain.

Speaker:

This is when, I don't know if you remember the frozen yogurt era.

Speaker:

So I got into that, but I got sick and tired of making people fat because if

Speaker:

you know what's in the freaking yogurt, it totally goes against everything I was learning in health.

Speaker:

And so that led me to find Orange Theory Fitness, fitness, which was,

Speaker:

or it still is, it's a group fitness that uses how we monitor.

Speaker:

And it was the closest thing to cycling. So it really made a lot of sense. And I was 22 years old.

Speaker:

And I drove to Fort Lauderdale to meet the owners of this franchise.

Speaker:

And this is when Orange Theory had six locations open. That was it.

Speaker:

Now there's over 2,000 in the world. So it was like a perfect timing.

Speaker:

And I came in there with some experience, but not to the extent that they will give me a region.

Speaker:

And so they gave me two days to basically file all of the franchise disclosure

Speaker:

documents and find the funding to be able to move to Atlanta, Georgia at that time.

Speaker:

And so I think that was their polite way to say, F you, if you can do this,

Speaker:

it's yours. If not, it is not yours.

Speaker:

And so I was able to figure everything out. Within two days,

Speaker:

I was driving up to Atlanta, where I've never really been in.

Speaker:

And within six months, we became the fastest growing region in the entire chain.

Speaker:

And so for me, being seven, eight hours a day on a bike or 12,

Speaker:

15 hours putting a workflow, it was so much easier. year.

Speaker:

And within about six months, I ended up partnering up with the CEO and president.

Speaker:

And we grew this into seven different regions with almost 100 locations under my belt.

Speaker:

And so by the time I was 26 or 27, I started exiting from Orange Theory, from private equities.

Speaker:

And that was my first huge success in this world.

Speaker:

Checkboxing, what people call the American dream, but there is a but and that

Speaker:

but was I was completely burned out.

Speaker:

I felt the same lack of purpose again, even though I was doing something good.

Speaker:

Arguably, some people would say that definitely doing so much of high intensity

Speaker:

interval training now with my knowledge is also not the way to do it.

Speaker:

But anyways, I committed myself that every three months, I'm going to do something

Speaker:

that will put me out of comfort zone, something that I can go on the the journey

Speaker:

through self-mastery, or I call it the journey through self-transformation now.

Speaker:

And so it first started, I did a samurai camp in Japan, in Kyoto,

Speaker:

to learn the way of a samurai.

Speaker:

Then they let me into Zen master training.

Speaker:

And I basically, every three months, I would go somewhere, put myself through this crazy discomfort.

Speaker:

And it wasn't until about seven years ago when I went to Darkroom.

Speaker:

For the first time, I spent 10 days in complete darkness with no food.

Speaker:

And by the way, this is a breatharian initiation.

Speaker:

People that solely live on prana, which is another, wow, what is this?

Speaker:

And essentially, I walk in there. Here is my cell phone. I just want peace. That was my intention.

Speaker:

And it turns out that day seven, I just lost it.

Speaker:

I start crying and purging. And for the first time in my life,

Speaker:

I was just in this perfect bliss of accepting myself for who I am, not for who I am not.

Speaker:

And in this moment, I basically got the vision of NAO|AON.

Speaker:

And NOA means movement.

Speaker:

AON is all or none. And it symbolizes duality.

Speaker:

My whole life, I had highs and lows and good days and bad days and healthy and sick.

Speaker:

And I was playing ping pong, this like up and down and up and down until I was like, this is enough.

Speaker:

There is another way to life. And that's in the middle. That's the harmony. That's the health.

Speaker:

That's happiness that we're meant to feel here.

Speaker:

And so I walked out of this cave, or they call it the yogi cave.

Speaker:

And essentially, I decided that I'm going to go back into music.

Speaker:

So that became my passion.

Speaker:

I started learning how to produce music, how to DJ again, because everything

Speaker:

has shifted technologically since when I was 12. Well, my purpose became,

Speaker:

how do I give this knowledge out to the world?

Speaker:

And so I started doing workshops and retreats and immersive experiences,

Speaker:

which, you know, today we call the system reset.

Speaker:

And then my legacy was, how do I make means with all of this?

Speaker:

And kid you not, within two years, I lost everything.

Speaker:

Everything in my life was stripped away from getting divorced to all the finances.

Speaker:

I literally woke up one day and every single account was either frozen or below zero.

Speaker:

It was crazy and scary because I made all of these pre-commitments and investments

Speaker:

and to stay within the societal norm as an entrepreneur, what you keep on doing.

Speaker:

But I was so over it and I went into a second extreme, which was becoming completely broke out of my life.

Speaker:

And that led me into a true integration.

Speaker:

What I live today is this combination of the falls and highs that led me into

Speaker:

balance. And it led me to having a partner that I love and that we have this union.

Speaker:

Being able to make means with doing the spiritual work. And it took a lot of,

Speaker:

obviously, shedding and repatterning.

Speaker:

But long story short, that's what got me into this path of what I'm doing today.

Speaker:

Wow. Sounds like you have been on an exercise bike all your life, man.

Speaker:

But quite a story, like pushing basically the limits of everything.

Speaker:

First breaking your body with too much exercise and then breaking your mind.

Speaker:

And then getting it all, the American dream, although you're not American,

Speaker:

and then losing the American dream, like all of it, and then being reborn.

Speaker:

I mean, there's this whole mythology of the phoenix bird rising from the ashes.

Speaker:

So this is the typical, almost like hero's journey, that you are called for an adventure.

Speaker:

And then you meet your guides, and you get all kinds of successes,

Speaker:

and then you go really into the bottom and then

Speaker:

you're reborn as a master in

Speaker:

a sense and yeah it's interesting like i

Speaker:

didn't know it was the dark room for you that did that

Speaker:

and nowadays it's this thing that is

Speaker:

becoming more and more popular vipassana obviously

Speaker:

many people rave about that like silent retreat

Speaker:

but the darkness retreat thing i

Speaker:

think aubrey marcus spoke about that that recently also how important

Speaker:

was for him i mean he's done like probably all the psychedelics

Speaker:

and ayahuasca and all of that and then like darkness was the

Speaker:

biggest one of them that can be so transformative there's

Speaker:

actually a location close to me that opened recently they do dark rooms so underground

Speaker:

and i spent i went inside just to check how it is you can even rent one of these

Speaker:

rooms or just for overnight stay you can choose to have this darkness experience

Speaker:

so that that they just bring you food through the door.

Speaker:

You can be alone, or it can be, so there's these speakers, that there's guided exercises that you do.

Speaker:

So you can have a guide that is through the speakers.

Speaker:

Every hour or something, there's something.

Speaker:

Or you can have a shaman or some healer with you in that space.

Speaker:

Guiding you through that experience.

Speaker:

And you can do it alone, or you can also have someone else there,

Speaker:

their friend or something like this, that's also possible.

Speaker:

But I know this just being there for.

Speaker:

I think it was just like 15 minutes, I felt like absolute peace,

Speaker:

already in like 15 minutes.

Speaker:

And definitely your nervous system wants to make something out of that complete

Speaker:

silence and darkness, that you kind of see stuff already, like very quickly,

Speaker:

like very vividly, you see things.

Speaker:

They also explained to me that that kind of sensory stimulation tends to veer

Speaker:

off, and then it picks up after some days.

Speaker:

So what's the experience for you something like this

Speaker:

where you had some difficult time and nervous system tries to

Speaker:

adjust and then there's like a complete silent

Speaker:

moment some point and then you start to get visions was there

Speaker:

something like this happening to you or what was going on there

Speaker:

yeah no totally so it's always so i've

Speaker:

done it now four times and it became my like yearly reset because it's been

Speaker:

so powerful and i've also tried every possible psychedelic that's out there

Speaker:

in this journey because I was hurting and I wanted to find peace through everything

Speaker:

that's available so that way I can speak about it and embody it.

Speaker:

And it truly wasn't until the dark room that it's this massive empowerment of

Speaker:

your own beingness that shines through you through this experience.

Speaker:

And so it takes about three to four days always to readjust.

Speaker:

And so what I use to occupy my mind, I would always go back in time every year

Speaker:

or every seven years I could remember and just go backwards into what have I

Speaker:

done? What have I done wrong? What do I want to improve?

Speaker:

And so that kind of led me to see myself for who I am and then forgive myself for who I am not.

Speaker:

And essentially, that's like the first three to four days when there's not so much vision yet.

Speaker:

Now, you're supposed to already stop eating about a week before.

Speaker:

So that way you actually come in detox.

Speaker:

Because if you don't do that, then the first three, four days you're detoxing

Speaker:

and it can be very miserable. You smell bad, you just have a headache.

Speaker:

And I've done it both ways in the past where I just go straight in versus doing the cleansing.

Speaker:

Now, the fourth, fifth and sixth day, this is when they believe that your pineal

Speaker:

gland clears out from all the blue lights, from all the mess basically that

Speaker:

we're constantly bombarded by.

Speaker:

One question of clarification, notifications, you go, you do that fasted like the whole time there.

Speaker:

So there's no food. No food. Right.

Speaker:

So like this darkness thing, like you can do it either way.

Speaker:

You maybe have like access to a kettle and some tea or something like this,

Speaker:

but you can do it with food or without.

Speaker:

So you would recommend going without food. You do a detox before.

Speaker:

Go there in a fasted state and you

Speaker:

must be using some electrolytes or something or it's just water that

Speaker:

you drink or it's just the water but here's the thing so because it's a breatharian

Speaker:

or pranic retreat it makes it completely different from any other dark room

Speaker:

experience because the whole main point of it is to tap into your own inner

Speaker:

source and it's that source energy when we slow things things down,

Speaker:

that little pulsation, that vitality, basically the original source vibration

Speaker:

or energy that gives us life when we're born and takes it away back to the oneness when we die.

Speaker:

So that's the craziest thing. You have to completely rewire your mental patterns

Speaker:

to the belief system that it is possible to actually sustain with just your own inner source.

Speaker:

But here's the thing. So you do series of different testing all throughout.

Speaker:

So you know actually what's your prana percentage and it's a muscle testing,

Speaker:

regular ones. And you could be like, is my prana percentage 70%?

Speaker:

Yes or no? 80%? Yes or no? So throughout the days, because you're in a deep

Speaker:

state of meditation, you're getting deeper and deeper into these transcendent states.

Speaker:

And essentially when your prana percentage hits 100%, then you actually gain

Speaker:

weight inside of the dark room.

Speaker:

And I never understood this until this last time.

Speaker:

So this fourth time that I've been in, I essentially, for the first time,

Speaker:

I took pictures before and after, and I always show people and ask them,

Speaker:

what do you think? Which one is before and after?

Speaker:

Every single person thinks that the one after is my before.

Speaker:

And essentially, I finally got it, like what it is to actually convert.

Speaker:

Because imagine that, let's say that you are using your prana 90% and then physical source 10%.

Speaker:

That means that 10%, you're still losing weight and you're still in a detox

Speaker:

state. But then when you convert, that detox state is gone and your body knows

Speaker:

what your natural weight is supposed to be like.

Speaker:

And so it's wow wow wow it literally took me so

Speaker:

many years to actually understand this and this last time

Speaker:

it took me two weeks after the retreat

Speaker:

to actually start becoming hungry again which was crazy like i was like imagine

Speaker:

that you literally lose a hunger physical hunger and at that point the worst

Speaker:

part is your emotional attachments to food your mental fear around food it's

Speaker:

not not even the physical body anymore.

Speaker:

And this is why like day five or six, this is when they say,

Speaker:

you know, the DMT starts just producing massive amounts naturally.

Speaker:

And that's when you even have to learn these meditations, how to tone down the

Speaker:

light, because it's so intense.

Speaker:

Like you could be walking in the thing, in a dark room, and everywhere,

Speaker:

there's just like raises of light and beams and orbs. And you can't really make

Speaker:

up, you know what it is. But it's it can get really really intense.

Speaker:

And in the first dark room I've ever been in, I remember I was dreaming lamb chops everywhere.

Speaker:

And you can't tell if you're in a dream state or if you're awake.

Speaker:

So it's really hard to sometimes discern whatever you're dreaming or you're

Speaker:

awake. And you just see lamb chops everywhere.

Speaker:

All you want to do is just grab onto that. Wow. That's incredible.

Speaker:

Yeah. It's just profound what you're describing, what the human mind is capable of.

Speaker:

And I guess this is closest to boundary dissolution, where you're actually like

Speaker:

connected to whatever is the one.

Speaker:

And if you are like in a state where you don't even know if you're awake or

Speaker:

if you're asleep, there's no difference and you don't see anything.

Speaker:

You don't like, you don't eat anything. Like you're with the essence in a sense.

Speaker:

I can only imagine what one needs to go through to be comfortable with that

Speaker:

state because I would imagine some people might go crazy about it.

Speaker:

I heard that the longest someone had been in that room here is 21 days.

Speaker:

Have you ever considered going, did you say like seven days what you normally

Speaker:

do? Or does it get worse or better?

Speaker:

Is it like a flotation tank? Because some people can't, most people can't do

Speaker:

like flotation tank for more than a certain number of hours because it gets pretty intense.

Speaker:

So how would you compare that actually to a flotation tank experience?

Speaker:

Yeah, so I do 10 days every time. And it's a specifically sequenced and timed from Jasmuheen.

Speaker:

So Jasmuheen has been my mentor for many years and I became ambassador of peace

Speaker:

to her. She's doing some amazing work.

Speaker:

She was basically one of the first women that brought the breatharianism into

Speaker:

the West and obviously got frowned upon because it's insane for the regular

Speaker:

mind to even comprehend this.

Speaker:

And so some people have a vertigo the whole time. Some people literally get

Speaker:

vertigo in Darkroom and it like does not.

Speaker:

I always feel bad for that person because they're basically on a ride,

Speaker:

right? Everything is just moving around them the entire time.

Speaker:

So there is different times that different things happen.

Speaker:

The way she does it, so there's meditations up to day seven.

Speaker:

Every day, there is a less and less time in a group settings.

Speaker:

And in the last three days, it's complete silence.

Speaker:

So you're like leading up to this last three days. But in those last three days,

Speaker:

that's when most of the insight come.

Speaker:

After doing it four times now, I call it the process of unhooking because we

Speaker:

live in this world of doing.

Speaker:

And we discussed this before this call that we've become chronic doers.

Speaker:

You know, if we don't do enough, we're not enough.

Speaker:

And it's really a sad paradigm because we are spiritual beings living a physical experience.

Speaker:

And it goes into the paradigm I love.

Speaker:

It's the be, do, and have. But it took me my whole life to really understand how to reverse this,

Speaker:

because most of us have to have the right things, do the right before they do

Speaker:

the right steps, and then never become what they've been wanting to become to begin with.

Speaker:

Now, what happens in darkroom with the unhooking, I actually I brought this

Speaker:

thing into my everyday life.

Speaker:

So that way, I don't have these crazy shifts once a year.

Speaker:

Because the first time I went in, I changed my life 360.

Speaker:

I literally was misaligned with my purpose, with my passion, with everything.

Speaker:

But then the second and third and fourth time, it was just minor adjustments.

Speaker:

Now it's not this like crazy change anymore.

Speaker:

And so what I start doing once a day, the first hour of the day,

Speaker:

I completely unhook from computer, from everyone.

Speaker:

I just spend time on my own before I go into the world and do breathwork,

Speaker:

meditation, whatever that morning ritual is for you.

Speaker:

It's like the time to determine what my day is about to be.

Speaker:

Then once a week, I take full day off from physical, digital.

Speaker:

It's like a detox from everyone.

Speaker:

So again, I can go back deep inside of what is my true desire?

Speaker:

Who am I? I don't want to be somebody else's reason to live.

Speaker:

Yes, because that's unfortunately what most of us are.

Speaker:

And then once a month, which by the way, it starts tomorrow,

Speaker:

my four days off, off, which is I completely unhook for four days in that cycle.

Speaker:

So that way, again, I can restore my energy, I can restore my ideas,

Speaker:

my thoughts, my insights, and unhook again.

Speaker:

Now, you know, if you've ever been to a vacation, it takes about three days

Speaker:

just to slow down the mind.

Speaker:

Sometimes I don't know what to do with myself, like we're just so used to actively

Speaker:

doing it really, it takes about three days just for the nervous system just to drop in, let it go.

Speaker:

And then if you ever had This happened the last few days before you leave the vacation.

Speaker:

You don't want to leave because you finally like dropped in.

Speaker:

And so that's why I take about four days every month to be able to unhook from the world.

Speaker:

And then once a year, it's 10 to 15 days.

Speaker:

So usually it's 10 days in the darkness or then the rest of it would be integration or before.

Speaker:

And it's, again, you don't have to go to this extreme. You could go into a cabin, right?

Speaker:

You can go hiking. You can do anything where you don't use your computer,

Speaker:

your phones, it's just you with yourself, with your thoughts.

Speaker:

So you can actually hear what your true why for this life is.

Speaker:

And so now being able to block it off, I don't have these crazy downfalls anymore.

Speaker:

I don't experience the burnouts. And so it's been the biggest actually lesson

Speaker:

from the dark room is how do you

Speaker:

keep that dark room or that silence all throughout the year? We do. Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah. Would you imagine the next step for you is not to even have that four

Speaker:

days, but to be there all the time?

Speaker:

Absolutely. So also what I've learned is like in life, like we have cycles, right?

Speaker:

We have a micro cycles that keep on arising for us to grow, to improve.

Speaker:

And it could be as little as we hit the cycle of negative thoughts.

Speaker:

There's maybe issues with your relationships, maybe a little bit in career,

Speaker:

because everything is connected, right? We're connected to everything that we're doing.

Speaker:

But these cycles come in to allow us to reseed it, right?

Speaker:

So we either keep on repeating them and being blindfolded to what our life is

Speaker:

trying to show us, or we actually reseed them and uplift them into the better,

Speaker:

greater version of of what we are learning through them.

Speaker:

And then we've got macro cycles, which are more on a collective level, right?

Speaker:

That we're experiencing as a country, as a group of people, as in a unified rounds.

Speaker:

And those are equally as important because we obviously play a role in them.

Speaker:

But then if we're constantly busy, we can't even see what these cycles are trying to show us.

Speaker:

And for me, I used to go into the victimhood. What is happening again to me?

Speaker:

And why is it not working? And what am I doing wrong?

Speaker:

Instead of, okay, I got this. Now I see these cycles as an opportunity to grow

Speaker:

and as an opportunity to actually like, okay, this is the misalignment right now on my path.

Speaker:

Because the best way to understand if you're on your path is the life feedback that we're receiving.

Speaker:

Right? So if we're not abundant, if we're feeling sick, if we are constantly

Speaker:

struggling with the same type of relationships, that's a direct feedback on

Speaker:

the outside, what's happening on the inside.

Speaker:

And there's some minor twists that we have to adjust. So that way, that doesn't happen.

Speaker:

And for me, and I think this comes from cycling, if I didn't hurt, it wasn't good enough.

Speaker:

I wasn't good enough. If I didn't learn through the gutter, through the painful

Speaker:

experiences, experiences, I wasn't doing enough.

Speaker:

And now I'm learning through love. I'm learning through joy.

Speaker:

I'm learning through fun.

Speaker:

And it's the same lessons that I'm learning, but instead of hurting,

Speaker:

I can actually be joyous through it.

Speaker:

And I wish that for everyone, but it does take the time to match the frequencies

Speaker:

with this other state of being that we are meant to be flourishing in.

Speaker:

And that's been like a big paradigm shift. Wow.

Speaker:

This must be one of the most important conversations I've had for a while.

Speaker:

In 2021, I started my day for four months with three hours of meditation in the morning.

Speaker:

And that was basically just a way to get through the day because I went through

Speaker:

hardship in my relationships.

Speaker:

One of my closest friends passed away and I couldn't practice my work,

Speaker:

doing events, speaking, all of that.

Speaker:

I was like strangled in different ways

Speaker:

and only by starting my

Speaker:

day with silence with myself and that's

Speaker:

where bread work was key for me to be even able to be

Speaker:

like three hours not doing for someone

Speaker:

who does a lot of things and very easily gets into all kinds of loops I guess

Speaker:

that's why I get so much done like books and events and all of that is when

Speaker:

I put my mind on something like I'm just I'm just going to do it until the end

Speaker:

of the world in a way. I can really go deep into it.

Speaker:

But to come out of all of these attachments and just be is the other side of the coin.

Speaker:

I noticed was actually necessary for all that work to happen in a fluid way.

Speaker:

And without that, it was a struggle.

Speaker:

So that was the first time when I really got meditation.

Speaker:

I've been doing it since I've been doing... I remember my first regular practice

Speaker:

on meditation was with martial arts because I've been doing Japanese martial

Speaker:

arts. So I always started with meditation.

Speaker:

That was like two or three times a week. But once I started doing it every single

Speaker:

day, every morning, it shifted.

Speaker:

And I noticed the difference in the days when I did it and when I did not.

Speaker:

And I'm really curious to try this dark room thing, because that's a hardcore

Speaker:

extreme version of that, in a sense. And we need that silence.

Speaker:

And I really like what you described about how the world is giving you feedback.

Speaker:

And in the end, most of the suffering is in your mind.

Speaker:

This is what most mystics tell about, like, where our problems come from. It's our own mind.

Speaker:

We're worried about the future, we're anxious about the past,

Speaker:

or the other way around, and we are not fully present, that it's,

Speaker:

you know, be present, be here now, like Ram Dass says, would be the answer.

Speaker:

And you don't really understand it until you understand it, right?

Speaker:

You have to actually, it's so simple, you can intellectualize it,

Speaker:

but to actually be here now is so hard for so many people, because we have been

Speaker:

taught that success in life is to achieve something, education, workplace.

Speaker:

Place we all even associate happiness with it that once

Speaker:

i do this and that or i'm that then i'm happy

Speaker:

like i get the family i get the car i get the dog i get all of like i have finances

Speaker:

it's okay like then i'm happy but you might be the most miserable person ever

Speaker:

like i know people have all of that who are the most miserable people i know

Speaker:

so it's not those things that you think are bringing you safety.

Speaker:

In fact, your sense of safety is what's going on in your internal state and

Speaker:

how the world reflects back that.

Speaker:

You can feel like absolute bliss and serenity and in a moment without anything.

Speaker:

And I guess you went through that also like at some point while you realized you lost everything.

Speaker:

Now, the interesting thing is once you go through

Speaker:

these kind of alleys and pitfalls in

Speaker:

life it's easier to face another one and another

Speaker:

one so actually you need this challenge you need these like impossible

Speaker:

mountains to climb and that

Speaker:

you once you climb them you realize like it was actually easier than you anticipated

Speaker:

in some way and every time I do something difficult I feel like oh never that

Speaker:

was the limit you find yourself in a situation where you do something even more

Speaker:

but that's interesting what you described how it's not the struggle then but

Speaker:

it's the enjoyment, the happiness.

Speaker:

Just being, and I guess like the magic of things. So can you like elaborate a little bit on that?

Speaker:

Yeah, absolutely. So I'm now on like a year 15 of doing these crazy, I guess, experiences.

Speaker:

And what I've noticed is that life is actually so much more simple than we make it.

Speaker:

And if you look at the cycles, we operate in a certain levels that we either

Speaker:

choose to see to be able to get out of of these levels or not see,

Speaker:

which keeps us blindfolded and continue repeating the same cycles.

Speaker:

Now, when I look at this, I actually created this very simple model. It's the me, we, and be.

Speaker:

And what it is, it represents the me is your individual consciousness.

Speaker:

Those are the things that you can take control over. And it's part of this journey

Speaker:

through self-transformation that we're all on, but not all of us fully conscious of it.

Speaker:

Now, when you think about individual consciousness, I'm talking about the physical

Speaker:

body. So that's your temple, your health.

Speaker:

And that's how this journey started for me. And I also see this in a lot of

Speaker:

this world, that if you don't fix your brain chemistry, your feelings of happiness,

Speaker:

your dopamine, your serotonin, your life is not going to feel good because your body doesn't feel good.

Speaker:

And that's when Biohacking 101 comes in, how to create this personalized health

Speaker:

journey for your body to understand what your body needs in any given moment.

Speaker:

I call it the hardware. So think about the body as the hardware.

Speaker:

Then you've got the mind.

Speaker:

Now, when I'm talking about mind, I'm talking about the monkey brain or the

Speaker:

ego, or we have many different words for it.

Speaker:

Now, there's nothing wrong with the ego or mind, it's a protector,

Speaker:

but it's this monkey brain that keeps on just shattering the same message over

Speaker:

and over again that can run your life and sometimes ruin your life.

Speaker:

Because if you believe in what it says enough of times, then that's what you're experiencing.

Speaker:

Now, how do we get charge of this? So I call it a software.

Speaker:

And basically, software directs the hardware. That's how it's supposed to do mind-body connection.

Speaker:

We now have science that proves that it's this way, especially with Wim Hof,

Speaker:

what he was able to do with autonomic nervous system.

Speaker:

And basically, what I had to do in this process, I had to face my mind.

Speaker:

So I start writing down any negative thoughts I had about myself or about another.

Speaker:

Then I would literally scratch it and I would rewrite it until I start thinking

Speaker:

that way about myself and about the world.

Speaker:

And it's a cliche. It's so simple, but yet you literally will be able to rewrite

Speaker:

your software so that way your hardware listens to the superior mind.

Speaker:

Can I add to this just a little practice for any listeners is that there's this

Speaker:

gratitude journal practice where in the end of the day, you write what you are

Speaker:

grateful about, let's say, in that day.

Speaker:

And it could be small moments that you experience, and it makes you pay attention

Speaker:

to the positive of that day. And in the beginning, it's like,

Speaker:

you need to a little bit like seek, okay.

Speaker:

Like what was happening today? Okay. That was nice. That was nice.

Speaker:

And then after a while, you know, this, as you do this, you know,

Speaker:

you notice when it happens. So you already see it in the day that,

Speaker:

hey, this is something that I'm probably going to write this evening.

Speaker:

So you're no longer just going on an autopilot, stuff happens,

Speaker:

and then you have to reflect, okay, what was nice, but you actually see it when it's happening.

Speaker:

And it takes four to seven weeks and it completely rewires the way you look at things,

Speaker:

because normally we are in a constant threat detection mode where we give more

Speaker:

priority to to potential negative outcomes on every situation.

Speaker:

It's a survival mechanism, right? So you are more likely to give more dopamine

Speaker:

and more attention and more priority and more importance to negative events.

Speaker:

But if you look at any day, as negative as it is, there's always something positive in it.

Speaker:

And even the negative things can be positive.

Speaker:

And that's also important for working with any kind of trauma or any kind of

Speaker:

difficulties to see how that was important part of your life.

Speaker:

So, sometimes the hardest things are the best things that happened to you, right?

Speaker:

The fact that you lost all your money and family and whatnot,

Speaker:

as horrible as it is, might have been

Speaker:

the most important trigger for your transformation, being a better person.

Speaker:

So I just wanted to throw this in that it's such a simple thing of just paying

Speaker:

attention to your signaling.

Speaker:

Like you described it as how you relate to others and rewriting that.

Speaker:

I described how you relate to moments in your day and you rewrite that.

Speaker:

And there is this, I think it's all Chinese saying that when it rains,

Speaker:

some people get wet and some people just feel the rain on their skin.

Speaker:

Which experience is worse? Which one you want to embody?

Speaker:

Do you want to be the one who's getting wet or are you the one who's just experiencing rain on skin?

Speaker:

So it's a matter of what you pay attention to. So yeah, sorry for interrupting,

Speaker:

but please continue. anymore.

Speaker:

No, I think this is great. And this is what we're all about.

Speaker:

It's right away getting tools.

Speaker:

And by the way, this is what I've been about my whole journey is somebody has

Speaker:

a path, right? Somebody has a tool.

Speaker:

Then my butt comes in there. I'm like, show me the way I'm going to do exactly

Speaker:

what you say and then accelerate it.

Speaker:

And if it works, I'll use it. If it doesn't work, then find a different thing

Speaker:

because not every tool is going to work for everyone. one. But I think having

Speaker:

this toolbox of your own set of things you can affect is huge.

Speaker:

My monkey mind just remembered like one moment which

Speaker:

proves to me that you're not just talking but you

Speaker:

actually embody this is that in amsterdam 2022

Speaker:

you were there giving a performance and i remember meeting you there and you

Speaker:

were doing the system reset experience for people just before the conference

Speaker:

and you had all the silent disco headphones with you and whatever gear and the

Speaker:

The moment when you looked away, your luggage was gone.

Speaker:

So someone stole the whole production and you were like just about to start this experience.

Speaker:

So there's people waiting. And I asked you that in that moment when you told

Speaker:

me this story, you were smiling and I was like, oh my goodness,

Speaker:

that must have been like really like drastic and challenging experience.

Speaker:

And you just said that it's nothing. I hope those people actually needed it more than I did.

Speaker:

And it's just stuff so

Speaker:

you can just get new ones right but the sad thing

Speaker:

was that people were waiting and you couldn't

Speaker:

like provide them that experience you have to do something else so to me that's

Speaker:

a good example of how you relate it to that like some people that kind of experience

Speaker:

could ruin their whole week or the whole month they would be like contemplating

Speaker:

and looping it and being like i lost it so attached to these material things

Speaker:

they don't see like any blessing in that that.

Speaker:

But the way you related to it, or you chose to relate to it,

Speaker:

either you are ignorant, delusional, or you're doing something very important here.

Speaker:

Jens Nielsen What you're getting into is actually sometimes misunderstood by a lot of people.

Speaker:

And it's the difference between surrender and not giving a fuck

Speaker:

About a thing or situation. And what I've learned through this journey is the

Speaker:

first step to everything is you can either react or you can accept.

Speaker:

And when we react, we tense up, we lose breath, we go into fight or flight,

Speaker:

just like running from a lion, or we have a choice to stay in touch with our breath, be aware,

Speaker:

stay relaxed in our body, and then figure out what do we do after.

Speaker:

And I think that's the key to any of these situations that come to us is first you surrender.

Speaker:

Actually, I have a really funny song. When things go hard in your life,

Speaker:

this is what you got to do, okay?

Speaker:

You have to sing this little tiny song and it is what it is. So what?

Speaker:

And you got to do the locha or clap at the end.

Speaker:

But here is what I mean by it.

Speaker:

You first just realize it is what it is, right?

Speaker:

This is what what is happening, and then what you're going to do about it.

Speaker:

Because if we don't make the change after, that's what makes the difference

Speaker:

between people that don't care, right?

Speaker:

That they're just in an apathy state versus people that actually will make it progressive.

Speaker:

And it ended up being a great class. We found a little Bluetooth speaker that we put in the middle.

Speaker:

We didn't lose voice over a full event.

Speaker:

And $15,000 later, we got a new gear after, which we needed to get anyways.

Speaker:

Yeah, so you improvised in that moment.

Speaker:

And I've done that actually, had that experience as a professional speaker.

Speaker:

So you prepare the most amazing deck, the most amazing presentation ever.

Speaker:

And you've been working so hard on it. And then I go on stage and the electricity

Speaker:

of the whole building goes off in the middle of my talk. and there's just this

Speaker:

red light, a warning signal inside the building that is blinking.

Speaker:

And this happens in the middle of my presentation, the projector,

Speaker:

lights, everything just goes off. What happened there, I just continued.

Speaker:

I didn't even react to what happened. I turned that immediately a split second later as a joke.

Speaker:

And it's part of my presentation. And then I just kept on going.

Speaker:

It was a great presentation, honestly, for me, me because suddenly I didn't

Speaker:

have any of the tools I relied on, but I was able to do what I love,

Speaker:

which is just to speak and improvise and be in the moment.

Speaker:

And actually like one of my advice based on that experience for some people

Speaker:

who do presentations is that you work on this great deck, you make the most amazing deck ever.

Speaker:

And then when you go to speak, just don't use it at all. Like just go free flow,

Speaker:

like you don't need the material because the process of making.

Speaker:

Already prepared you for whatever that moment is all about. So you can absolutely

Speaker:

go without all the tools if you want to.

Speaker:

This is like the Tibetan mandala, right? They build it for hours and hours just to destroy it at the end.

Speaker:

Absolutely. That's the modern desk warriors version of it. The Tibetan mandalas

Speaker:

bits on the screen that you just delete.

Speaker:

Yeah. Of course, it never feels good, especially if you lose a file.

Speaker:

So you have worked so hard on something and then it's gone.

Speaker:

But it's like nothing compared to losing your life's work.

Speaker:

Android Jones is this amazing visionary artist, one of the world's top guys,

Speaker:

especially digital visionary art.

Speaker:

What happened, his whole home burned down while he was away.

Speaker:

And every single piece was gone.

Speaker:

Computers, sketches, all the art. And not just that,

Speaker:

but generations and generations of details everything gone

Speaker:

in ashes in flames and it was

Speaker:

interesting to watch the guy on his instagram posting from

Speaker:

the burning ashes different messages and coming to

Speaker:

terms what has happened and starting from the beginning and i think it will

Speaker:

make him a better artist that he lost everything and it's like those moments

Speaker:

are a blessing to certain extent if you see it like it can become become such

Speaker:

an integral part of your story.

Speaker:

Imagine losing your life's work. Who wants that?

Speaker:

No one, right? To be able to surrender and accept it when it happens instead

Speaker:

of going into this state of bitterness and resentment.

Speaker:

I guess it's also Jordan Peterson talks about resentment. That's the worst enemy

Speaker:

of all of us is resentment.

Speaker:

It doesn't help you at all to get stuck in

Speaker:

in something that could have happened or could have been, but you didn't get.

Speaker:

But you got something else.

Speaker:

And by being so focused on what you lost, you don't see in front of you what

Speaker:

you're actually getting now, in a sense.

Speaker:

And I also think this is what, like, there's a higher aspect of us,

Speaker:

right, that's already realized that some people call it the higher selves,

Speaker:

other people call it the source, soul, spirit, it really matters not.

Speaker:

But there is an aspect of us that is of the oneness, that is not fully separated.

Speaker:

And I think that's what the biggest separation between our egoic mind and this

Speaker:

greater mind is that we put this sequence of experiences in front of us that

Speaker:

we can learn most through.

Speaker:

And if at any point of time, for example, this artist you were talking about,

Speaker:

he was probably bored in some level or he needed more challenge.

Speaker:

He needed to grow from what he's always known.

Speaker:

And I think it's always funny, Sometimes we get so attached to different visions

Speaker:

and different businesses and people.

Speaker:

And so then we need to wake up to disrupt this.

Speaker:

And if I bring it back to the me, right, the individual consciousness.

Speaker:

Right? So you've got the mind, the software, body, the hardware.

Speaker:

Then you've got emotions, which is the representation of what makes this life feel real.

Speaker:

And in a way, I've learned this. So I spent time with the psychics in Brazil. ill.

Speaker:

And what they taught me is we've got five physical senses, but then we have

Speaker:

four spiritual senses or psychic senses.

Speaker:

And these are the senses that every single one of us have, but yet we're not

Speaker:

really taught how to read them and understand them because of the analytical

Speaker:

mind can get so much in the way, right? The traditional monkey brain.

Speaker:

Now, in this journey, first, I had to face the emotions, aka past traumas.

Speaker:

Who have I hurt? Who has hurt me? What am I holding on to?

Speaker:

And it really didn't happen until I could see it either through ayahuasca, right?

Speaker:

Something that really is there to bring these things out, breathwork or the

Speaker:

darkness that I start accepting myself because there was such a massive disconnect

Speaker:

between the worthiness of what I thought I am versus who I actually already am.

Speaker:

And so facing that was key.

Speaker:

Now, when we want to download new software for our phone or computer,

Speaker:

we have to connect to the internet to be able to do that.

Speaker:

Now, computers and technology is an extension of us.

Speaker:

And so essentially, if we just reverse engineer that, if we connect to the internet,

Speaker:

which is slowing down the monkey brain, going into breathwork, meditation.

Speaker:

Changing up the brainwaves, because we've been chronically in the beta,

Speaker:

overly active analytical mind, then we actually can allow these four psychic senses to experience.

Speaker:

And so that's the spirit or the soul aspect of us.

Speaker:

And I'll give you a few examples how we actually all have them and how do we

Speaker:

build that relationship with them.

Speaker:

So first sense is your inner hearing, which is not the monkey brain, right?

Speaker:

Not the It's not the lousy voice, it's the voice that is telling you turn off

Speaker:

Netflix at night or start working out, quit drinking alcohol.

Speaker:

It's the voice that always has your back, but it's very subtle at first.

Speaker:

Now, how do we strengthen this voice?

Speaker:

We simply acknowledge the voice first. Thank you, I heard that.

Speaker:

And then what you're going to do about that. And the minute that you turn off

Speaker:

the Netflix, the minute that you actually follow this voice.

Speaker:

Becomes louder and louder. And this is what happened for me.

Speaker:

I came in there again as an entrepreneur with an open heart and open mind,

Speaker:

but I was like, what is this?

Speaker:

And then this voice became so loud that it integrated with the lousy monkey brain.

Speaker:

And then now it's become this amazing union or friendship with these voices

Speaker:

inside of my head that are actually here for my my greatest good.

Speaker:

The second sense is your inner seeing or vision or third eye,

Speaker:

right? Different mystical cultures talk about it in a different terms.

Speaker:

And this is when you maybe have a strong lucid dreaming or you have a vision

Speaker:

that hasn't happened or manifested yet. I always love using entrepreneurs.

Speaker:

You have a business plan or idea that's a year from now that maybe not many people have seen yet.

Speaker:

Then you put it into the consciousness today and then you create a plan,

Speaker:

to how do you get there. So that's your inner seeing or vision.

Speaker:

Then you've got your inner feeling, which comes from your solar plexus and extends into your hands.

Speaker:

And this is really what Reiki, pranic healing, they use this sense or empaths

Speaker:

is another term for these people.

Speaker:

And this is when you go into a room, there was a fight, something doesn't feel

Speaker:

right, or you had a wrong feeling about a person, about a situation,

Speaker:

but maybe you couldn't really put a word to it just yet.

Speaker:

So same thing. Thank you. I felt that.

Speaker:

What are you going to do about that to be able to use this sense as your extension

Speaker:

of the physical senses that we already have?

Speaker:

And then the final fourth one is your inner knowing.

Speaker:

And I always like to say, when you think you don't know, when you know,

Speaker:

you don't require to think.

Speaker:

And that's how you discern it. You knew that the party wasn't a good decision to go to.

Speaker:

You knew that person was cheating on you. You just knew it with your whole being.

Speaker:

But this one is the hardest one to discern because of the noisy monkey brain has an agenda.

Speaker:

So that's why when you start thinking, then do not use this sense,

Speaker:

move into the feeling or hearing.

Speaker:

Now, these four senses is literally, it's been like the biggest savior in my

Speaker:

life because now instead of worrying about the external, what should I do?

Speaker:

I ask the the internal, and then I validate it with the feedback.

Speaker:

So if I make the right choice, you simply know instantly because life is made

Speaker:

up of choices and consequences, which have a delay at first,

Speaker:

but we have to learn how to operate in this delay because of this feedback constantly working for us.

Speaker:

And that's the me, individual consciousness, made up your physical,

Speaker:

mental, emotional, and spiritual connection or health that in this journey,

Speaker:

I had to face and really repattern.

Speaker:

Now, I want to remind you, I am not master at anything but the transformation itself.

Speaker:

Meaning, now I go into these cycles that continuously happen,

Speaker:

but I don't see it from a victimhood mindset.

Speaker:

I see it as, okay, I need to shine more light into certain areas because it's

Speaker:

showing me or reflecting in me what part of me needs to improve.

Speaker:

When I start really getting handle of the me, the individual consciousness.

Speaker:

Then I was starting to move into the we, the collective. And I break this down

Speaker:

into two segments. So it's the relationships.

Speaker:

This is what are the people you spend the most time with because they're either

Speaker:

reflecting the best of each other or the opposite.

Speaker:

And so in the dark room, in these times, I had to really look into my relationships,

Speaker:

my business partnerships, my friendships, and I start either improving them.

Speaker:

So find forgiveness, acceptance, and gifts to be able to lift them to the greater

Speaker:

release or completely replace them.

Speaker:

So that way now the relationships I have around myself, they only reflect the best of each other.

Speaker:

And so it allows us to grow in this collective union.

Speaker:

And the other part of the we, the collective, is environment.

Speaker:

And so I've really dived into the environment in general because it's the water

Speaker:

we drink, the food that we eat,

Speaker:

the clothes that we wear, the air that we breathe is everything on the external

Speaker:

that has an impact on the internal that has to be created the environment that you can thrive in.

Speaker:

And of course, this one is hard, especially in this world today.

Speaker:

This is when EMF mitigation is important.

Speaker:

This is when wearing organic clothes and creating a house or home that really

Speaker:

can nurture you is a key because the me will be impacted ultimately the most.

Speaker:

And then the third aspect of this is the B, the supra-consciousness, I like to call it.

Speaker:

And that is, if we know that this universe was created 13.5 billion years ago, how did we get here?

Speaker:

We're such a little drop of a dot in this vast ocean that we are operating in

Speaker:

all of these micro and macro cycles at some level.

Speaker:

But yet we determine through the health of all of the different bodies,

Speaker:

how well we are or how aware are we of each moment.

Speaker:

And this is when breath comes in. This is when body's awareness,

Speaker:

this is when being present is crucial because now we can start seeing every opportunity,

Speaker:

every little cycle or disruption as this magnitude to become the greatest version

Speaker:

ever held about who and what we are.

Speaker:

And it's "me", "we", and "be". And when I went on this and I shined a light to this,

Speaker:

I've come to a conclusion that it's actually really easy to take this in your

Speaker:

own hands. And I use this four-step process.

Speaker:

The step one is waking up. This is when you bring things to the surface that are not working.

Speaker:

It could be negative mind. It could be negative relationships.

Speaker:

It could be taking a blood test, right? Just simple for your physical body.

Speaker:

And let's say that you are high on environmental toxins and low in vitamin D, right?

Speaker:

It gives you a data to start with, to wake up from the first phase.

Speaker:

Then you move into the second phase, which is cleaning up.

Speaker:

And this is the most important because I used to be a master at keeping the

Speaker:

old stuff, the old me, and also wanting the new.

Speaker:

And guess what? I was NOA|AON, highs

Speaker:

and lows and good and bad because I continued to jump in this duality.

Speaker:

So when you let go of the negative thoughts, you let go of the negative partnerships

Speaker:

or you detox your physical body, Now you're opening up this room to power up,

Speaker:

which is the third phase of this.

Speaker:

And this is when you supplement vitamin D. You bring new relationships, your new thoughts.

Speaker:

This is a time that you go into offense and you start driving your own vehicle.

Speaker:

Stop being a passenger. You're actually taking charge of every situation to go and rise higher.

Speaker:

And the fourth step is rest up and repeat this cycle. because if you ever think

Speaker:

that you've learned something, there is a whole new set of tools in your path.

Speaker:

That's why this never ends. It's this way of how we understand it that may change.

Speaker:

And rest up is the process of unhooking. So that's when you take the time off.

Speaker:

You spend time with yourself and yourself only because other than if you don't

Speaker:

do that, you're constantly living somebody else's life, somebody else's dreams.

Speaker:

And so that's why it's so crucial to just retract so you can go back into the

Speaker:

world again with this new point of view.

Speaker:

So wake up, clean up, power up, and rest up.

Speaker:

Beautiful, beautiful way to put it. And understanding that there's the subject,

Speaker:

then there's the object outside of you, and then there's like this totality that holds it all.

Speaker:

And in a sense, biohacking is one of the definitions from Dave Asprey,

Speaker:

like optimizing the environment inside and outside of you.

Speaker:

So you first go to your inner verse, then you look at your immediate relationships,

Speaker:

interactions, all of that.

Speaker:

Basically what I did, it was in 2017 to 2018, I got rid of everything I had.

Speaker:

Not everything, but material things. I got rid of an apartment.

Speaker:

I got rid of as much stuff as I could physically at that time, about 90% of stuff gone.

Speaker:

The rest I just put in a warehouse and I went traveling for,

Speaker:

it was like a speaking tour.

Speaker:

And I calculated where I'm going to be on the road like five months.

Speaker:

And it turned out to be a few years. And when I moved here, I decided that there

Speaker:

is like nothing coming here.

Speaker:

It doesn't serve any kind of purpose, either function or art or detail that I really love.

Speaker:

And I will keep the space clean because my desk used to look like everyone who's

Speaker:

worked with me, the version of them before this version, the desk was like a complete mess.

Speaker:

It was like always stuff everywhere.

Speaker:

My home was the same. Now it's been like clean everywhere.

Speaker:

And I'm very conscious about material things. I don't need stuff.

Speaker:

I'm very considerate what I go after.

Speaker:

And so in that process, I noticed that changing that environment outside of

Speaker:

me cleared out my mind also. There's more peace. But you know what?

Speaker:

These last few weeks, I've been going through the closets here.

Speaker:

It's crazy what I find. There's still so many things that lurk in.

Speaker:

And it's also in our minds and our lives. We try to control things,

Speaker:

right? So in a way, packing at this worse is neurotic control,

Speaker:

that you're so afraid of losing control that you try to control everything.

Speaker:

You try to control everything you eat, you try to control your environment.

Speaker:

Everything needs to be under control. And if it's not, you get anxious,

Speaker:

you get stressed, you get suddenly gluten intolerance, whatever it is that's

Speaker:

your problem or what you're afraid of.

Speaker:

So there's this like all psychosomatic component to it.

Speaker:

Like people who are sensitive to gluten

Speaker:

they just get symptoms of it just with the idea of

Speaker:

having it in the food even if it's not in there right and to

Speaker:

some extent also like this whole EMF stuff which is great can turn into that

Speaker:

like the anticipation that there is some harmful radiation is already causing

Speaker:

the symptoms right versus that's just one aspect that you are consciously paying

Speaker:

attention to, you're limiting,

Speaker:

you're accepting that it's good enough.

Speaker:

But in the end, if it starts to control you, if the external things start to

Speaker:

control you, then you are not in control of your inner verse anymore.

Speaker:

Suddenly the outer verse is like taking over your inner world also.

Speaker:

It suddenly becomes a reflection of it.

Speaker:

So all the environmental toxins and EMFs and everything is like suddenly you

Speaker:

are a sick person because of the mold and whatever you went through.

Speaker:

But to transform that from the inside is key.

Speaker:

So I guess that's like a dance also. Like we go through these cycles where we

Speaker:

become aware that things are not okay, like you're gonna fix it.

Speaker:

And then it's under control, you get peace of mind. But then that like thing

Speaker:

that provided you that comfort, that healing can then start to control you.

Speaker:

I've seen that in health and wellness influencers is that maybe it's a diet

Speaker:

or maybe it's like some kind of passage.

Speaker:

Is part of their wounded healer story or their

Speaker:

own hero's journey like whatever was the thing that

Speaker:

worked for them they become emotionally so attached to it that it takes over

Speaker:

everything it takes over their identity even so you become keto mike or vegan

Speaker:

mary right so whatever that dogma is belief system it starts to rule you and

Speaker:

control you and then there's this disconnect again.

Speaker:

What if you don't want to be keto all the time?

Speaker:

What if you want to try some meat as a vegan Mary? What if, you know,

Speaker:

you just take a break of being a biohacker just for a weekend?

Speaker:

I just started thinking about that stuff when you spoke about that.

Speaker:

And the "be" is, again, like the acceptance of it all.

Speaker:

It's this constant state of dance that we're in, because it's so funny that

Speaker:

you mentioned this, because this is actually so important to understand,

Speaker:

because we have to be okay when things don't go our way.

Speaker:

And that's that level of like surrender versus dancing in whatever is.

Speaker:

Because the minute that we think that we've mastered something or that we've

Speaker:

known a certain thing, then there is another set of tools that will completely bounce it back.

Speaker:

And I've had this with the breatharians.

Speaker:

It's literally whenever I go into the dark room, it erases everything I know about biohacking.

Speaker:

Because when she talks about how do we get our nutrition, how do we get our

Speaker:

minerals and vitamins? And we literally sing a song in the morning.

Speaker:

It's all my vitamins, all my minerals, everything you need comes from prana.

Speaker:

So you literally, we completely rewired that potential.

Speaker:

And it just tells you how expandable we are based on the level of belief system that we have,

Speaker:

because there is over 200,000 people that claim that they have no longer the

Speaker:

need to eat physical food that have been able to successfully convert into prana as a source.

Speaker:

And it's fascinating because then everything is about just coding.

Speaker:

And that's really what System Reset, by the way, is about. It's about getting

Speaker:

you into the internet to reset you back to baseline and back into health,

Speaker:

happiness, harmony, and on whatever level that you're dealing with.

Speaker:

But then if something on the outside is not ideal, we have the power to to hold

Speaker:

our boundary, our strength.

Speaker:

We have the power to not be affected by it because the minute that you,

Speaker:

for example, think about COVID and viruses, there was a whole.

Speaker:

Documentary that debunks that viruses exist to begin with, right?

Speaker:

The minute that you start thinking that it's just a flu, then it just doesn't exist in your space.

Speaker:

And it's funny because even for us at the beginning, we were like, what is this, right?

Speaker:

There was like a period of time that we all caught COVID, me and my partner and families.

Speaker:

But then we rebranded, essentially, the thought about it to begin with,

Speaker:

and literally did not exist in the space, They haven't been one sick since then.

Speaker:

So it's really the most important biohack that you can ever hack or that you

Speaker:

can ever have is to unhack everything you've ever known and tune into this inner

Speaker:

hearing, seeing, knowing.

Speaker:

Because the minute that you're actually living based on your own need and necessaries,

Speaker:

then we learn through and call in these situations that are perfect and ideal.

Speaker:

And whatever its tools, whatever its products, whatever it might be,

Speaker:

it will work for a certain period of time, but then we should also be okay if

Speaker:

we don't have it. We taught us a lesson.

Speaker:

It's like a heart rate monitor or EEG, right? You learn what your heart rate

Speaker:

zones are or what your brainwaves are based on what happens on the outside.

Speaker:

And then you just know what that feels like. And it teaches you to be able to

Speaker:

rely on the biggest computer system, which is your DNA, your body,

Speaker:

your mind, your emotions.

Speaker:

Yeah, like you use the computer metaphor here to rewire, like boot the motherboard

Speaker:

in a sense, like system reset.

Speaker:

Do you have like a, are you like a geek when you were growing up,

Speaker:

like with computers and all that?

Speaker:

Like, how do you see that? You're talking about prana here. You're talking about

Speaker:

like consciousness and energy and all that, but you're doing a system reset.

Speaker:

So let's do a little system reset. So first thing first, I'll give you you this

Speaker:

little exercise, right?

Speaker:

What we know, we know that water inside of our cells can carry information and

Speaker:

we are 60, 70% filled with water.

Speaker:

And so we actually do this little exercise with people. So you connect your

Speaker:

point finger and your thumb together, and you essentially, you just,

Speaker:

you tap and you're speaking from the mind, the software into the body, the hardware.

Speaker:

And it starts with a simple code, system reset back to baseline now.

Speaker:

And what you do is you speak to the cells to your body to your water system

Speaker:

to basically reset back to baseline so just like a computer when you hold the

Speaker:

power button for two or more seconds it resets back now.

Speaker:

At first, you might not feel the response. So what's really important is maybe

Speaker:

close your eyes, relax into your body, and just shut out that external world

Speaker:

and just connect into a slow, subtle, rhythmical breath.

Speaker:

And then just speak to your body from the mind and just state system reset back to baseline.

Speaker:

Now, at first, I did not have a response. But then later, I start having a little

Speaker:

tension or little goosebumps, or it comes in a a different way that the body

Speaker:

actually is listening to.

Speaker:

Now we notice all of our DNA, all of our cells are constantly listening and

Speaker:

waiting for information.

Speaker:

So this reset gives you back to baseline. Now here's the next one.

Speaker:

System reset, perfect health now.

Speaker:

And just simply program all of your cells into perfect health.

Speaker:

Again, from the superior mind, that explanation could be you're typing up an

Speaker:

email and when you hit enter, you send the email, right? The same way you send this information.

Speaker:

And what do you do with the email? You demand that it will get there and you

Speaker:

trust that it will get there.

Speaker:

The same way you build the trust and understanding with your mind-body connection.

Speaker:

Now here's the next one. System reset, perfect balance now.

Speaker:

You code it in, you speak to it, your body knows what perfect balance is,

Speaker:

and then you just demand the answer.

Speaker:

And maybe now just use whatever you wish to code it into. It could be system

Speaker:

reset perfect energy levels now.

Speaker:

Sometimes when I'm tired or system reset perfect sleep, perfect time management,

Speaker:

perfect harmony and relationship.

Speaker:

You code it and you demand it and then you trust it.

Speaker:

And this is just like a muscle. You go to a gym and you lift the weights enough

Speaker:

times, you will start building muscle mass.

Speaker:

And so same way we start building this connection.

Speaker:

And so for me now, it's a constant conversation that I have within my body,

Speaker:

within my emotions, within different aspects.

Speaker:

And sometimes I get called, take, I don't know, ashwagandha, right?

Speaker:

Like it will help your stress. And so that's when knowledge can be very great

Speaker:

because it allows your intuition to have sources to pull from.

Speaker:

But yeah, so this is a direct feedback that will give you eventually a response.

Speaker:

And it's really, it's like this, I like to play.

Speaker:

I'm like a child that's in a constant wow and wonder of what this world can give us.

Speaker:

And, you know, you play enough and you play and you think these things into being. Right.

Speaker:

This reminds me of Bruce Lipton and his book, The Biology of Belief,

Speaker:

how your cells are not responding to what you actually see or experience,

Speaker:

but they respond to the biochemical,

Speaker:

neurochemical environment that you create for them.

Speaker:

And you can actually affect that very directly.

Speaker:

So when you have this moment when it rains, is your response getting wet or

Speaker:

is it feeling rain on the skin?

Speaker:

Very different effect in terms of neurotransmitters, inflammatory,

Speaker:

messengers, whatever, than if you get stressed about it.

Speaker:

In a sense, you are in control of your nervous system if you want to,

Speaker:

or it's an autopilot and it does all kinds of stuff.

Speaker:

And that's also what you explained earlier about the monkey mind,

Speaker:

in a way, that is constantly telling you about threats or things you need to do and all that.

Speaker:

And you're just witnessing its existence and accepting it and having an awareness of its existence.

Speaker:

So many people are not even aware that they have voices in their heads,

Speaker:

in a sense. They just follow the commands.

Speaker:

So I really like that exercise. It's super simple.

Speaker:

In a sense, to just come to this

Speaker:

moment also, and also remind you what is important. Why am I doing this?

Speaker:

And you can then approach it differently.

Speaker:

I remember I did an experiment with heart rate variability monitors.

Speaker:

I had a huge conference where I was speaking on both days. Also,

Speaker:

I was raising capital for a venture.

Speaker:

So I had like 15 meetings on each

Speaker:

day lined up with investors and it

Speaker:

was like constant sympathetic nervous system activation and

Speaker:

I just decided to do an experiment one day I just decided I'm

Speaker:

not using any biohacks I'm just gonna do like a regular person does and I measured

Speaker:

it I just run around and be super hyper and feel every second with like opportunity

Speaker:

or chasing them and the second day I was just taking a mindful breath breath

Speaker:

before I got into anything, presentation, meeting.

Speaker:

And I would actually share that with other people. So when I went to a meeting

Speaker:

and there's this like super hyper agitated person, I would just,

Speaker:

hey, let's take one minute, just like mindful breaths.

Speaker:

And I would explain them that this is what they do at Google.

Speaker:

So at Google, they always start meetings like this. So it was something they can associate with.

Speaker:

So at Google, they always start like one minute before going

Speaker:

into meetings so we just like pretty slowly like eyes closed put

Speaker:

a bell on and I looked at my date after that day

Speaker:

and it was like night and day same busy day

Speaker:

completely different urological response to the day and I felt more rested also

Speaker:

the next day and I also got more out of those days that day when I was like

Speaker:

really mindfully present and actually those people I also helped to go through through the same,

Speaker:

in those meetings actually led into something.

Speaker:

So we're often so preoccupied about the next thing that we aren't even paying

Speaker:

attention to what's happening or who we are with and all that.

Speaker:

So just like being mindfully present.

Speaker:

That was all what was needed. So it just reminded me like tapping my fingers

Speaker:

and like making those commands, how important it is like just to stop even in

Speaker:

the middle of a podcast and remind you that, hey, everything is fine, perfect balance.

Speaker:

And then you notice, ah, there's something that's not in balance.

Speaker:

And then like suddenly it is because you noticed it.

Speaker:

That's really what determines the quality of our life.

Speaker:

This is why I love using this before meetings or if I feel feel anxious,

Speaker:

or I really like just need a rest.

Speaker:

Or when we are on a tour, sometimes we do three, four events in one day.

Speaker:

And so it's so important to take charge and bring it back.

Speaker:

And there's one other tool, it's called an instant presence that's so easy to follow.

Speaker:

And it's anytime you're talking or listening, you simply focus on these three things.

Speaker:

So first thing, it's the gold standard, five and a half seconds,

Speaker:

inhale, five and a half seconds, exhale in and out your nose,

Speaker:

or any sorts of extended breathing.

Speaker:

It increases your heart rate variability.

Speaker:

It lowers down your stress, brings you more into coherence. Breath is like the

Speaker:

key to me, to everything, because it's what we're born with and also the last

Speaker:

breath that we take when we die with.

Speaker:

But between the first and last breath, what is unfolding is either of this deep

Speaker:

consciousness state that we're aware in present or not.

Speaker:

We're just passing by on an autopilot. it. So breath is the first tool of the instant presence.

Speaker:

The second tool is body awareness.

Speaker:

And I always like to ask myself this question, where am I?

Speaker:

Because most of the time we're in the future, we're in the past,

Speaker:

we're constantly on our phones and emails.

Speaker:

And the minute that our consciousness extends out somewhere into the external

Speaker:

world, we're basically giving all of the energy, let's say to a cell phone.

Speaker:

And there's nothing wrong with

Speaker:

using technology, but it's the state we're are in while we're using it.

Speaker:

So if you can, next time you ask yourself, where am I? You bring all of your

Speaker:

beingness into every pore of your skin.

Speaker:

I even like to imagine this, that I inhale that five and a half through these

Speaker:

imaginary champagne-like bubbles bubbling up around your whole body.

Speaker:

So that way you exactly can visualize and conceptualize inhaling

Speaker:

and drawing in from the entirety of you and

Speaker:

then exhaling out from the entirety of you

Speaker:

in a relaxed open space because we

Speaker:

tend to be tensing up our shoulders our core especially when

Speaker:

we're talking or not listening in a lot of ways so where am I, I'm fully inside

Speaker:

of this body as the whole awareness now imagine next time you pick up a phone

Speaker:

and you're holding this awareness and you're only an extension Now you're not

Speaker:

getting lost in the information.

Speaker:

You're actually still here, present and aware, which will also sometimes cause

Speaker:

you maybe turning it off sooner or not browsing for too long.

Speaker:

So body awareness is the second tool.

Speaker:

And the third tool is, can you pay attention?

Speaker:

To the stillness and silence beneath the noise.

Speaker:

So one of my favorite times to practice this is on an airplane or in a music

Speaker:

festival, somewhere where it's really noisy, you can still be aware of your breath,

Speaker:

your body's awareness and stillness and silence underneath the sound, underneath the noise.

Speaker:

And it's that little, almost like a waterfall-like sound or ooh,

Speaker:

it's this little like peace.

Speaker:

And if you just simply do that right now, you will instantly become present.

Speaker:

And so see what happens if you use these three tools throughout the day,

Speaker:

especially when you forget you're out there again.

Speaker:

And what's interesting is sometimes we're excited and happy,

Speaker:

but that's equally could be as bad as sad and unhappy because we're in that

Speaker:

triggering highs and lows and up and down versus just being in that essence,

Speaker:

welcoming things as as they come and unfold with this pure awareness of that

Speaker:

moment, all of a sudden you'll fill up the room wherever you go.

Speaker:

Incredible tools, super, super simple. And I got what you meant,

Speaker:

that silence thing, like paying attention to that background silence,

Speaker:

that's a profound way to pay attention.

Speaker:

Actually, it's interesting about the breath when we're having a conversation.

Speaker:

So probably a lot of listeners, their days are full of meetings where they go,

Speaker:

Zoom calls, whatever, podcast recordings, like meetings, all of that.

Speaker:

And when you're in a conversation, the moment people usually don't breathe,

Speaker:

it's also when you speak, like how to learn to use your breathing.

Speaker:

Is the moment when you're listening.

Speaker:

The moment when you're listening, you start to accumulate some associations

Speaker:

or reflections or whatever is happening.

Speaker:

And your short-term memory can keep only a certain number of concepts.

Speaker:

So once your short-term memory gets full, you are in this state where you feel you want to get it out.

Speaker:

So when you're having a conversation, you're getting associations of what the other person is saying.

Speaker:

There is a moment where you start

Speaker:

to wait for the opening when you can say something, where you can jump in.

Speaker:

And usually what happens there is you stop breathing.

Speaker:

You're on the edge of your seat. You're almost like getting ready to jump from a cliff.

Speaker:

And that's where your shallow breathing

Speaker:

very easily comes from and then your

Speaker:

heart rate goes up and once you jump or you

Speaker:

open your mouth you might actually say something you didn't mean because you're

Speaker:

in this agitated state so that's one of those things that I try to pay attention

Speaker:

to when I'm having a conversation is like when I'm listening is that I'm actually

Speaker:

like relaxing my shoulders and I'm breathing and sometimes I forget but the

Speaker:

consciousness of like awareness of that process like and getting back into just

Speaker:

paying attention is key.

Speaker:

And it also teaches something about listening.

Speaker:

Because in the end, when you are listening to someone, you're not really listening

Speaker:

to what they're saying. You are becoming aware of your own associations to what is being said.

Speaker:

And you realize that all that stuff comes from inside, actually.

Speaker:

Because we don't really hear what people say. We hear the reflections that our

Speaker:

neurochemistry is making out of those situations.

Speaker:

That's the key. As much as it's important to learn to listen,

Speaker:

it's actually learning to listen yourself.

Speaker:

What's happening there? Like, why is this stuff rising? prioritizing and also

Speaker:

learning to let go of some things like, okay, I don't need to bring this up, whatever.

Speaker:

It's also a mindfulness practice in a sense, if you do it properly.

Speaker:

It's actually in the Socratic dialogue, a method that Socrates developed for dialogue.

Speaker:

One of the key components of Socratic dialogue is that you use simple language,

Speaker:

so you don't hide behind authorities, references, whatever, like complex language.

Speaker:

And the second thing is that you should be always always able to recite what

Speaker:

has been discussed so far in the whole conversation.

Speaker:

If someone asks you, give me one minute, what has been the discussion so far?

Speaker:

And the second thing is you should be able to fully recite what the other person

Speaker:

just said and then doing that properly where that is being practiced,

Speaker:

like guided. There is, you don't interrupt.

Speaker:

And when you say something, you use simple language.

Speaker:

And when you listen, you should be able to recite. And in any second,

Speaker:

what is being said and what has been said so far in its

Speaker:

totality and then you realize people are not really

Speaker:

paying attention they're not really present and how hard

Speaker:

it is actually to do properly and learning to

Speaker:

do it like we haven't learned how to even have a

Speaker:

proper conversation i don't think like socratic dialogue is being teached in

Speaker:

schools that much but it's one of those like aha moments for me when a master

Speaker:

of that showed practically that happened actually in the netherlands and there

Speaker:

was scientists like top scientists like you can You can imagine like top freaking

Speaker:

experts on a topic having a debate.

Speaker:

And there's this guy who practiced Socratic method was like guiding them into

Speaker:

these principles and then getting them into the topic.

Speaker:

And it completely changed the way these people were talking to each other.

Speaker:

They were not hiding behind whatever learned programming, but they were actually

Speaker:

trying to be more present to understand what is the conversation about.

Speaker:

That's also so important, right? Imagine the amount of conversations in today's

Speaker:

world, how they're just like this autopilot blush.

Speaker:

And we make this fun with my Fairy, with my partner, is that we sometimes find

Speaker:

it so hard to be social because the level of conversations we want to have is very much different.

Speaker:

And what we've explored is in a different areas that we go to,

Speaker:

people are scared to go deeper.

Speaker:

It's actually really interesting how much we have, we're the society of walls

Speaker:

and protection and mental projections.

Speaker:

And then we totally forget the heart and we forget the beauty that happens in

Speaker:

spontaneous conversations without any agenda.

Speaker:

And I think that's the doing again, right? Like we step into the beingness to

Speaker:

just start reflecting and seeing everybody as the God inside of them that shines out in front of us.

Speaker:

And that's, by the way, it's been one of my favorite exercises when I travel so much.

Speaker:

I have this thing, every plane that I sit into, I state this little mantra,

Speaker:

Like, I see the awareness inside of you and inside of everybody in the plane,

Speaker:

I become the awareness of the plane and then come from this place of just re-seeing

Speaker:

things for the beauty beyond the John or Mary,

Speaker:

the names, the titles and where we're from.

Speaker:

And that's also what we do in System Reset is really like looking and seeing

Speaker:

people for what they are, not for what we're not.

Speaker:

That's a good practice, considering how stressful flying might be.

Speaker:

Like, that sounds like a nice practice.

Speaker:

But it's interesting, if you think about flying, it's actually magic.

Speaker:

You are tied in a chair, you're flying in the sky.

Speaker:

Like, it's literally, it was impossible, like, a few generations ago to have that experience.

Speaker:

And now we are privileged to have it, and you're complaining about the food

Speaker:

in the airplane, the neighbor sitting next to you, the noisy kids,

Speaker:

whatever, like, the poor air conditioning.

Speaker:

And you're like the fact that you are stuck there for

Speaker:

god knows how many hours and with

Speaker:

all these cartoon characters and you transform

Speaker:

that experience into an enlightening experience

Speaker:

of seeing for what it is actually and not your like immediate reactions on the

Speaker:

surface to the situation the poor airline food but Lee Evan my friend who does

Speaker:

also bread work he always used the example from airplanes that you should put like the

Speaker:

oxygen mask first on yourself before helping others.

Speaker:

And maybe that's what we need to do also in our interpersonal relationships

Speaker:

as well, to be able to be fully of service.

Speaker:

I think this conversation has been incredible.

Speaker:

And so you are on a journey now to like help people have this self actualization,

Speaker:

realization, awareness.

Speaker:

Like you went through all of this and that's now your wounded healer story of

Speaker:

discovering it and now you're embodying.

Speaker:

That you want everyone else to experience the same. You're conducting these

Speaker:

experiences for people to have this self-transformation, the word that you used.

Speaker:

And you gave a few simple examples, but if they want to learn more,

Speaker:

where should they go? What should they do?

Speaker:

Yeah, no, so I think the most important part is that we're really opening up

Speaker:

a space for people to re-see them for what they are, not for what they're not.

Speaker:

And doing it without any substances for the most part to really be able to actually

Speaker:

take it home with you, what will count the most in your daily life.

Speaker:

And so we do this through the digital side of things.

Speaker:

We've got online courses and on-demand library, which will give a free month.

Speaker:

So that way people can experience anything from three minute recordings to two hour journeys,

Speaker:

really depends on what your appetite and time

Speaker:

is of the day then we do about 100 to

Speaker:

150 events out of the year all across

Speaker:

the world from lectures workshops retreats that's

Speaker:

on our website it's the noaaon.com that's a lot of events you are one of the

Speaker:

guys like i have a lot of friends but you seem to be like all the time in a

Speaker:

different event different country different place and you're not alone like

Speaker:

you have your wife and kids with you and sometimes you're traveling on your own.

Speaker:

But what you're saying is that you're not burning out doing this, are you?

Speaker:

It's this burning desire to continue to serve.

Speaker:

It's really sometimes I wonder myself, why exactly are we doing this to ourselves?

Speaker:

But because of the cycle that I've been able to weave in and out,

Speaker:

I've really been able to find that harmony.

Speaker:

It's not always easy, especially with children. And when your shift doesn't

Speaker:

end with the event, it starts because of kids to be fed.

Speaker:

Said, I've been called to this and I feel this in my bones that the next couple

Speaker:

of years, we're just going to continue doing this, we do this exercise at the end of every event.

Speaker:

Where we bring people into group coherence through our heart,

Speaker:

and we put up these, how do we call it, like a constructs or energy.

Speaker:

So we pray for land, we pray for peace, we're bringing more love through the unified realms.

Speaker:

And that's what's been shown to me with plant medicine, with darkness,

Speaker:

is that's been my role to really be able to open this up with people's hearts,

Speaker:

so we can come back to unity from where we all started.

Speaker:

I used to get tired when I was using my own source.

Speaker:

And I sometimes get into that same way when I'm not properly being the vessel of this energy.

Speaker:

But then when you truly are that, and when you think about, let's say you have

Speaker:

100 people in an event, that's 100 times one plus one is not two,

Speaker:

it's exponential when it comes to coherence.

Speaker:

And so So it's an exponential energy feedback, right, where we're receiving as well.

Speaker:

So I also feel sometimes more energized than when I'm actually off the tour with this.

Speaker:

Yeah. And then we've also built a conscious expansion marketplace.

Speaker:

We have EMF devices. We have light therapy.

Speaker:

We're coming up with an EEG headband that's going to basically next year,

Speaker:

our events will We'll have a way to monitor and track group coherence in a real

Speaker:

life with neurofeedback as well.

Speaker:

And that's something that I'm really the most excited about because now we can

Speaker:

actually show people what's happening and not just have this mystical experience.

Speaker:

Yeah, the website is noaaon.com. There's a bunch of events now happening in the US, for example.

Speaker:

You have a shop of different products, Waveguard, for example.

Speaker:

There's VIZR. I use VIZR often myself. I do too.

Speaker:

I have to tell them I filmed a whole bunch of breath work and meditations with the light therapy.

Speaker:

And it's really amazing. We're going to release that soon, but it will imagine

Speaker:

you can do your three, four rounds of let's say Wim Hof retention, but with the light.

Speaker:

That's by the way, some of the things that we're now curating also for CeraThrive,

Speaker:

which is the red light.

Speaker:

It's like a 10 minute red light sessions, but you also will get to to have the

Speaker:

meditation or vibration with our InHarmony meditation cushions.

Speaker:

So that's what I say, consciousness expansion marketplace.

Speaker:

We want to be able to give people the tools that are effective,

Speaker:

that are quick, that can bring you into data, that can bring you into different states very quickly.

Speaker:

And that's, I think, where I see the technology being awesome.

Speaker:

The technology inside of us can have the extension outside of us.

Speaker:

So we have the Biohacker Summit 10-year anniversary coming in Helsinki, 2nd and 3rd of July.

Speaker:

And with Pavel, we have done the system reset experience a few times in our events before.

Speaker:

Always, it's been for many like one of the most memorable experience they've had at the Summit.

Speaker:

But for next year's Summit in Helsinki, we are planning to potentially set up

Speaker:

an even bigger project, integrating some new technologies.

Speaker:

But just creating a space where people can go through this transformative experience.

Speaker:

We have had this Sanctuary space in our last two Biohacker Summits in Amsterdam,

Speaker:

which is one of the kind of things that in a busy conference where you enter

Speaker:

and it was like complete peace where you're going.

Speaker:

Imagine you're in a noisy environment and you walk into a Sanctuary and your

Speaker:

nervous system just calms down in seconds.

Speaker:

There is performances, all that, like there is guided sessions,

Speaker:

all kinds of things, but it's just like energy is completely different from

Speaker:

a conference environment.

Speaker:

And that's the duality of nervous system experience that I also want to provide in my events.

Speaker:

But we always want to push the technological side of how we do things.

Speaker:

So I'm looking forward to creating something interesting with you to Helsinki.

Speaker:

So people should definitely book their tickets to Helsinki.

Speaker:

And these kind of experiences are for the premium and VIP ticket holders.

Speaker:

So that's something you may want to jump into right now, because those tickets always sell out.

Speaker:

There's so many people always who would have wanted to experience come and do

Speaker:

that, but we have limited space for transformative experiences.

Speaker:

That's like a little nudge or hint for listeners to, if they've been thinking

Speaker:

about getting a premium ticket or VIP ticket, get it now because it's going

Speaker:

to be even better than in previous years what we're going to do in Helsinki.

Speaker:

And Pavel definitely is going to create something

Speaker:

transformative. Not necessarily a dark room, but silent space.

Speaker:

But if you are interested in having that experience, possible.

Speaker:

Maybe you can make a silent retreat after the summit or something like this. I know the location.

Speaker:

So you can reach out to me if you want to do that. I think I have to add,

Speaker:

we have done literally every conference possible from the psychedelics conferences

Speaker:

to summits to to the CEOs,

Speaker:

and there's literally no better experience that really integrates everything.

Speaker:

And this is what I love about you is you get the consciousness piece,

Speaker:

because so many longevity and biohacking, it's centered around the body.

Speaker:

But really, that's such a small element of who and what we are.

Speaker:

That's what really brings this massive shift for coming into these events,

Speaker:

not just some fun weekend, it actually can really transform your life.

Speaker:

Thank you so much, brother.

Speaker:

So yeah, check out biohackersummit.com for the tickets and noaaon.com for the both

Speaker:

digital and in-person content and also some physical products.

Speaker:

I also want to mention the on-demand library of content that they have produced on the website.

Speaker:

So there's a lot of free material there. Also, if you want to get into your

Speaker:

breath or whatever, like it is mini course into Babel's philosophies,

Speaker:

you can find stuff on the website.

Speaker:

It's great. Check it out. But with that, thank you very much for the interview.

Speaker:

I'm looking forward to meeting you soon. I'm following you online and checking out your Instagram.

Speaker:

Noa Aon is definitely one worth following.

Speaker:

Great stuff you're doing. Appreciate you. I appreciate you. And thank you so

Speaker:

much for your time and for opening this up.

Speaker:

I'm excited to reconnect somewhere in the world very soon. Hopefully before the summit.

Speaker:

Absolutely. Let's manifest that into being. I will tap my fingers for that. Thank you very much.

Speaker:

Music.
