In one significant way, Ty Bollinger is like almost all of us. He lost someone he loved very dearly to cancer. His father. In the following decade, Ty lost 6 more of his family members to cancer, including his mother. Like many of us, Ty found it hard to believe that the standard medical response his father, mother and family received was the best or only solution possible. Impassioned, he took action, and began diligently to research alternatives. Learning of the body’s true power to heal itself, the natural remedies that successfully support this healing, and the profit motives driving the medical system’s myopic and often ineffective approach, Ty became a revolutionary, with a mission to reveal to others these truths about cancer, and to put an end to this pandemic disease. His search took him across the country and around the world, speaking with hundreds of practitioners who have successfully used alternative cancer treatments, and people who have reversed their cancers – all kinds of cancers – using unconventional methods. These approaches, he found, have been unaccepted and actually suppressed by the mainstream healthcare system. Driven to share the truth about cancer and empower others to prevent and heal the disease, for themselves and their loved ones, Ty compiled everything he had learned into a book, and then a series of documentaries. Expanding upon everything he learned about the pharmaceutical industry and cancer, Ty recently created and released a related documentary called The Truth About Vaccines. Ty is a force to be reckoned with, and he packs this interview with at times shocking and thoroughly life-saving information and stats about cancer, the standard medical approach and its alternatives. Maybe the most important and empowering truth about cancer explained in this interview? The body, if well cared for and supported, has the power to heal itself. Our deep thanks to Ty for his tireless passion, work and commitment to the truth. Enjoy.
Teresa Yanaros was born into life destined to unite in service with beings beyond Earth. Child of a military family stationed at RAF Woodbridge, England in the early 1980s, she grew up hearing stories about the Rendlesham Forest incident, one of the most famous UFO sightings in history worldwide. Over the years, Teresa would variously keep an open mind and resist this revelation, taking a fairly traditional path out of childhood into college, where she majored in journalism, then held a series of jobs. What remained constant, though was a quest for the truth. A turning point came when her father pointed her to a book, Journey of Souls, which documented a series of dramatically consistent stories of people’s experiences between death and life–and the journey of consciousness that endures, lifetime to lifetime. For Teresa, the truth of these stories, and the vast depth of our consciousness that they revealed, could not be denied. She was awakened. With her mind cast wide open, Teresa began having supernatural experiences of her own. These experiences dramatically changed the course of her life. Teresa sold everything, quit her job, and began to write, speak and live the truth that was coming through her. She became a coach, and created a blog and YouTube channel to share her knowledge with the world. Also, Teresa now speaks regularly at conferences, and collaborates with major national movements, like the Full Disclosure Project, to spread the messages of spiritual awakening, disclosure, and the truth of our existence as consciousness. It is her mission in all her collaborations to empower others to awaken to their true, infinite power, and to join with the co-creative consciousness of the planet to manifest its positive future. Teresa is at once candid, humble and accessible; forceful and empowering; light and wise in her sharings and predictions for our future. Enjoy!
What’s the new way to live, lead, earn and give? Peta Kelly says it’s simple — and it begins and ends with our alignment. Peta always lived with a desire to serve others. Her interest in serving our collective health led her first to network marketing, where she sold Isagenix health products. Her belief in the product and magnificent hustle led her to become a millionaire through this business by age 26, when she retired her single mom, and began to launch her own businesses. She even launched herself on a worldwide speaking tour. Because as she began to create, powerful messages began to come to her, and to move through her human channel. She began speaking worldwide, and creating epic sh*t of her own. She also felt a call to help people change their “money story”, something we discuss in-depth in this interview. Her most recent message, lovingly and powerfully laid out in her first book, released earlier this year, is that “Earth is Hiring.” That there is a “New way to live, lead, earn and give for millenials and anyone who gives a sh*t.” And it begins with raising our vibration to meet Mother Earth at her highest frequency and creative brilliance. We’ve got it wrong when we believe we need to save the Earth, Peta says. Mother Earth is a bad*ss creator – all she needs us to do is remember that we are, too, and rise up to meet her. She says the most important thing anyone can do to meet this collective calling now, as the world rushes toward transformation, is to put your alignment first. Stop doing sh*t you hate, and recreate your life to be and serve what you love. Live in your “tap”. We have everything we need, all the time to flow effortlessly with nature, and to create infinite abundance, solutions and service for others. One of the (many) awesome things about Peta that comes through in this fun, power-packed, call-to-action of an interview is that she is human as f*ck. She is no guru, but an awakened human being who has aligned with her soul’s purpose and opened her own tap to allow the flow of a powerful message that is within and resonant to all of us – human beings and magical creators in one.Be who you are, and the magic within you here and now will be effortless, Peta tells us. It might even raise the vibration and change the world. Enjoy!
Gerard Armond Powell (“Gerry”) has always been an all-or-nothing kind of guy. To say he had an addictive personality is a gross understatement. Drugs, women, alcohol, money….you name it. Every vice known to man has written a chapter in his colorful life story. And for many years, each of these chapters had a very dark – and often catastrophic – ending. That is, until he found plant medicine. During his first ceremony, he had a chat with…the moon (of course). The moon – perhaps a vehicle for his higher self – laid out an entirely new vision for Gerry’s life, and how specifically he was to help others recover from addiction using plant medicine and other powerful healing modalities. Most importantly, as Gerry describes it, that night he was reconnected with his soul. The gap between he and his true Self that he had tried so hard to fill with drugs, women, alcohol and anything else he could get his hands on, had been closed and healed. He emerged reborn. Incredibly, the guidance he received during this first ceremony played out mostly to the letter. He has since founded and runs the Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica helping hundreds of others to close the gap, reconnect with their soul and find peace, healing and recovery on the other side. In this interview, learn all about Gerry’s story, including the specifics on what happened during his first experience with plant medicine, his epic encounter with the moon, his transformative healing work at Rythmia and his vision for how plants can change the world. His dramatic transformation and utter authenticity are certain to inspire anyone seeking the truth about life and our relationship with God and the natural world. Enjoy!
When asking how our lives might look different if we were to follow our hearts and dreams, so many of us point to travel. For most of us, travel represents freedom in one way or another – the ability to do whatever we want to, go wherever we want to, whenever we want to do it. But many of us never do it – or do it only in the limited, accepted, prescribed way – for a couple weeks of vacation a year, here or there. We feel confined to one place, limited by time, money, and location-dependent obligations. No so for Jason Moore. After college, Jason longed to travel – to take off in the spirit of adventure. Despite $20,000 in student loan debt, Jason took a leap of faith that he could support himself on the road, and took off. What he found on his way was that many of the mind stories that stop us from traveling are actually made up of myths. That is, it’s not actually impossible to make money while traveling – in fact, he was able to pay off his student loans while traveling and working on the road. Jason’s own experience learning how to travel and experience freedom and location independence soon became his passion to serve and help others. Along the way, he partnered up with fellow traveler and friend, Travis Sherry, and created an online community, “Location Indie”, for people living this so-called alternative lifestyle. Jason comes through in this interview as a down-to-earth, warm, and easy-going guy, and also a deeply knowledgeable and experienced expert in the art of travel and freedom. Enjoy!
Brandy Gillmore refused to take “no” for an answer. After a car accident and a fall that injured her spine, the former athlete was left with devastating, chronic pain throughout her body. She spent days – years – laying in bed, watching TV, with a constant morphine supply that couldn’t even ease the pain, getting out of the house only to see doctors, and confined to a wheelchair. Determined to heal this pain, and live a full life, she simply could not – would not – believe what every doctor told her: that there was no solution to heal her condition. In the countless hours of research on health and healing she had done since her accident, she remembered reading many stories of people getting well just taking the placebo – that is, the inactive pill, the non-remedy, to provide a control group for the study of a treatment. What if the solution to her dilemma lay outside of the traditional system of health and healing in our society… and in her own mind? What if… she could heal herself? As we can see meeting and listening to the vibrant, healthy, powerful Brandy of today, the answer was a resounding – YES. Today, Brandy walks with ease, strength, and free from any pain or support, sharing her message of empowerment, and teaching others how to heal themselves too. In this extraordinary conversation, learn all about Brandy’s journey from chronic pain and desperation to power, vitality and purpose. Even if you do not suffer from physical pain, Brandy’s story confirms for all of us that we have the power to create our own well being, that consciousness is the true power, and that each of us has more of it than we could ever possibly need. Enjoy!
What do you think of as “normal”? From an early age, Daniel Eisenman questioned what he was told is “normal” – the standard way that he and others were supposed to be. At first, he played around with “breaking normal” – like many teenagers do – by challenging the rules set around him, and acting a bit reckless. But for the most part he stayed on track. After high school, he went to college, and chose to study pre-med, like all the good kids did, and like his parents wanted. He graduated and took the MCATs. But as applications to med school approached he started to question this “normal” path more fundamentally. Something within him knew there was more to his life, and his role in the world, and he decided to take a year off. That year has since become ten (& counting). He hasn’t stopped or resumed his former course. Instead, what he found while taking time off from the prescribed path is that there are, actually, infinite ways to live your life. “Normal” is just a conditioned story – unique to each of us, and the story we specifically were told. At first, he sought how “to get paid to do the things he would pay to do”, leading to all sorts of adventures that defy our normal beliefs about what we must do to make money. Along the way of following his fun, he saw his idea of fun change. What became most fun, and most exciting, actually, was being true to himself, and serving others in a way that was aligned with his values and beliefs. Every day for Daniel now is adventure in following his own fun, excitement and alignment. He travels often, around the country and the world, lives in vibrant health, enjoys a passionate love relationship, and these days, is most awed by his 1-year-old daughter, Divina, who last year became a viral star with him online as he OM’d her to sleep. Daniel is a real, open-hearted, generous guy who lives a wildly epic life and wants you to know you can, too. Enjoy!
Kathleen Morton never understood why people seem to live by the same unwritten rules. As a child, she most enjoyed the sanctuary of her bedroom, where her natural creativity flourished. Like many of us, when she graduated high school and moved into the larger world, Kathleen believed, as her parents encouraged her to, that a traditional education and career path would bring her happiness, money and success in life. Returning home after college, one potential story of her life flashed before her eyes: hanging out with the same friends, doing the same things every day, in a mechanical urban environment and routine. Something inside her knew there was more to life, and called out for the vast, open expanses of nature, which spoke of unlimited possibility. She moved to Colorado, and soon, the city girl who didn’t know how to hike found herself more and more at home in the outdoors. As she spent more time in nature, she began to question the way she lived, and the footprint she was making on the Earth. To live closer to nature, she bought a pop-up camper with her then boyfriend for $1,800. Finding space with a local family, she and her boyfriend made home there anew. They felt the changes of seasons and morning dew directly through the permeable camper walls, and comingled with the local wildlife. Kathleen wondered – finding more financial and personal freedom – why more people didn’t live this way. What began as an experiment with tiny, off-grid living soon revealed itself as a calling, and a new story for Kathleen’s life: to live closely and in flow with nature, minimize her impact on the environment, and tell her story – and those of others making life this way – to show others that this is, in fact possible, and maybe inspire them to do the same. Today, Kathleen lives and wanders through nature in a 1987 Toyota van, together with her dog, Peaches. She has created a blog and podcast where she tells her story and the stories of other van dwellers, and she serves this community by creating monthly #vanlife gatherings around the country, where the growing community of mobile, alternative home explorers can gather on the frontier, support one another in the lifestyle and movement they are pioneering. She talks in this intimate interview about what it’s really like to live and work all over the country in a van, and why – despite the challenges – she feels endlessly fortunate that she is able to live in this way, enjoy the open freedom of her days, and create her own story of her life each day. Enjoy!
In 1999 the film The Matrix was released. It told the story of a small band of renegades led by Morpheus and the prodigal son, Neo, breaking loose from a synthetic, lifeless reality they called “the matrix” and the eventual collapse of this artificial and controlling system. Since, the phrase “The Matrix” has become synonymous with the toxic life path promoted to us by institutions, the media, governments…you name it. People feel controlled, mechanical, limited. Within many of us, there is another voice which deeply knows these limits are artificial and false. This voice within is facilitating a mass awakening as more and more are creating lives outside of this matrix and inspiring others by their example to do the same. Our paths have been filled with questioning virtually every area of life where there is a status quo or accepted way of living, seeing past that into a broader, more expansive truth. In this episode, we chronicle our journey through 8 very specific points of departure from the old system creating life anew fully aligned with the truth of who we are. These are 8 highly actionable choices that have dramatically expanded our lives, improved our health and filled us with optimism and excitement. These range from changing our diets, to taking a deep look at our relationship with material things to our daily meditation practice, seeking more powerful and positive inputs and much, much more. In an effort to help others understand the vast range of possibilities available to them inspiring them to also see past the programming of the matrix making more empowered and expansive decisions, we have written an eBook detailing these 8 choices. This book, entitled “Exit The Matrix” is filled with hundreds of valuable tools & resources giving you the power to make similar powerful choices for yourself (ebook download link in the show notes). In this episode of the Ownstream Podcast, we reveal our “exit the matrix” story through the lens of these 8 categories. No more does anyone need to abide by the old rules in our world. There are millions forging a new reality, a new earth, right under our feet. “Exit The Matrix” is our gift to those seeking support in unplugging from this old matrix, or way of life, and join the march forward towards a society based on joy, community, abundance and…limitless living.
Sometimes when we begin to meditate – and especially when our meditation practice takes off – we may feel that we are living a secret life. For Rodolfo Carrillo, the exploration of his “secret” inner life began at age 7, when his mother introduced him to meditation. He had fallen, and was experiencing some pain in his body. Until they could reach a doctor the next day to treat his injury, his mother told him to sit quietly, and together, they meditated, generating a healing energy. Despite broken bones in his foot, Rodolfo experienced only mild pain until he reached the doctor the next morning, who was in shock at his calm condition. Rodolfo began to practice meditation from that point forward, and devoured everything his mother shared with him about the subject and practice. Living in a uniformly Catholic Costa Rican culture, however, he kept his meditation life secret throughout his youth and young adulthood, all the while pursuing a fairly culturally traditional outer path – making grades, going to college, and starting a career in business. As he began to work closely with family businesses, it became clear that his true life purpose would call for the merging of his inner and outer lives – and specifically, would require him to bring forth the understanding he had cultivated in his inner life to offer healing in the outer. He now works in one life with individuals to remove their blockages in this way, as he continues in his other life to heal family businesses. The bridging of his inner and outer lives is live and in progress for Rodolfo, who explains that he is still understanding how best to bring forth his inner gifts to maximize his contribution to healing in the world. What is evident from our conversation is that Rodolfo is a truly gifted, intuitive seer and healer – one who has tapped through his inner life into a higher power for healing than one typically known or experienced in our society today – a power, that when bridged effectively into our society, will be pivotal in healing the world.
