Meeting with a group of supportive people is a great way to use the power of group energy to get out of your own way and demonstrate optimal results from your goals and visions. Sometimes your own family is your support group and sometimes you want and need support from peers with experience who can mentor you. If you have a project you’ve been procrastinating, start a Galvanized Group.
There’s a lot going on these days that can steal your attention and rob your energy. So it’s more important than ever to feed your mind, body and soul with hope and words of wisdom.
Since there is a lot do to, sometimes it seems like there’s not enough time to sit still, reflect and rejuvenate. That’s why We-WOW put together a page called 5minutegems.com.
Visit this site today and you’ll get a selection of 5 different gifts, all free and all designed to help you keep a positive, hopeful and joy-filled perspective on life.
One of the gifts is a five minute audio created by Yours Truly (DJ Galvanized). It’s a mix of a trip-hop song titled “Inner Child at Play” by The Flavor Foundation and audio snippets from Christopher Westra’s Holograpic Creation. I like to think of it as a meditation with a beat, especially for people on the go. It will help you to remember the Power of Now. You can listen to it or download it here.
This track will mesmerize your mind and help you really “get it” that staying stuck in the past or projecting into the future will rob you of life. Come check it out and also be sure to get all the other gifts at 5minutegems.com.
In this show we talked about the difference between “wanting” to be something versus knowing who you already are. If you are perseverant and focused on your strengths, you can access your best qualities all the time.
It requires practice to become your best self. You can have greatness within you but it won’t be realized unless you work with it. Just like you have to work your body to see changes in your muscles, you have to spend time honing your own qualities. You have to fine tune your instruments which are your mind, body and soul. One of the first steps to becoming strong is to attain inner peace. From a place of inner peace it will seem as though there are no obstacles, fear will disappear and action steps will become clear.
The question is, how can one maintain inner strength and conviction even when difficult life events and feelings come up? And, why do we sometimes keep thinking negative and worrying even though we know it’s self-destructive?
One reason is because much of our self-defeating talk started before we reached the age of 5. Prior to the age of 5 our brain is so receptive that it will assimilate any information it receives. After the age of 5, we repeat the same patterns we learned in infancy. Not only that, for our entire youth and even adulthood, we model the world based on what we learned at home. Sometimes what we modeled was downright insane yet most of us didn’t even know what we were doing or how destructive it was to us and those around us.
Spiritual growth/development takes work just like maintaining your house or your car or your body. If you neglect your mind, your emotions and your spiritual self, you will get the results that occur with all things that are neglected: deterioration, root rot, overgrowth, etc. Generally, most things that are neglected go wild, stagnate, decay and eventually die. If you want your mind to be healthy, you need to keep it filled with fresh ideas and you need to get rid of what’s not productive.
Another way we can abuse our minds is by “beating ourselves up.” Remember, you can’t grow something and chop it down at the same time. An important step in breaking free from beating yourself up is self-forgiveness and letting go.
Just because you let go doesn’t mean you deny your life history, instead, you focus on facts versus your story of limitation. For example, I could say I ran away from home, that is a fact. The story that hurt me was telling myself over and over again that I was “no good” and that the world could not be trusted. Know the difference between the facts and the story you made up about yourself. Drop any stories that are keeping you small because you could be beating yourself up with your own story even when you could be using that same story to lift yourself up. Don’t get addicted to your story, it can keep you strung out and stuck for decades. Decide instead what you want the story to be and take steps to make it happen.

To be galvanized is to be free from fear, strengthened by Life, bold enough to be whole and to have fun doing It.
On this episode of The Sheri and Erin Show we explore the possibility that illness might actually be an opportunity to heal old beliefs and attitudes.
As a part of the healing process, attitudes and beliefs are updated and sometimes it becomes necessary for the body to update itself accordingly by releasing toxins or letting go of disease.
We explore beliefs and attitudes like unworthiness and “beating yourself up” as well as attitudes such as grandiosity and self-pride and how the two are simply a different manifestation of the same root problem: fear or lack of love for self.
This episode uses stories and analogies to help listeners let go of limitation and achieve “ah-ha” moments.
We read a passage from A Course in Miracles on page 544 under the heading “Many Forms, One Correction” that said “The aspects that need solving do not change, whatever form the problem seems to take” and discussed what that means in our personal life.
If your religion is giving you the blues or you just can’t stomach a leader who abuses power, you might be ready for Victoria M. Reynolds, Spiritual Liberation Catalyst. Victoria was raised on a polygamist commune and has witnessed first-hand the destructive effects that male-dominated, power-driven religious leaders can have on families and communities.
Victoria’s mission is to liberate her audience from fear and shame so they can live in a state of love and joy. Victoria M. Reynolds has experienced a complete transformation in her life.
She went from being a woman who was driven by fear of the devil to a woman who embraces her spiritual power and seeks to liberate others from the debilitating effects of fear, guilt and shame. She is the author of Transcending Fear: The Journey to Freedom and Fulfillment and has a blog at victoriamreynolds.com.
In the beginning of the show, Erin and I also talk about a movie, Son of Morning. This movie makes fun of the very real way in which many of us learn beliefs in a superstitious, random manner and then hold on to those beliefs for life. We also talk about the movie Inception and the power of the subconscious mind in keeping you fearful.
The Master Mind principle is based on the idea that we all share one mind and as more people share a similar belief, the cultural consciousness shifts. One of the places you can hear the direct relationship of influence is music.
Most music today is inspired by music from the past. Not everyone who listens to music knows this but people who produce it usually do and they often have a reason for being influenced by a certain artist.
Stevie Wonder has been an incredible source of influence for many hip-hop and R & B artists. Today when I was at the gym the song Rocket Love (1980) came on.
Starting at about 1:21 in the song and throughout the song is a lyric “Cold Cold World”. This same lyric and sound is a song by Genius GZA released in 1996. Today when I heard Rocket Love, I also heard Cold World in my mind which made me think of how and maybe why I discovered this song to begin with.
Do people unconsciously make their current music choices based on influences from the past? Are musicians consciously or unconsciously shaping our culture with their message? Does listening to old music keep you stuck?
As a person who’s been heavily influenced by music I try to make my selections consciously and as a DJ I also have a conscious intention to build unity and a family vibe.
And yes, a group of people in a room listening to the same music, laughing and dancing at the same time is probably one of the most powerful Master Mind groups there can be. Whatever you say or play today, do it consciously, pay attention and play wisely. The words you share will undoubtedly impact the future.
This episode of The Sheri and Erin Show was one day after we watched 2 documentaries on the Bio channel, one about Jimi Hendrix and one about hippies. We discussed how music impacts people and how everything is intertwined.
We are all connected and when one of us is bold enough embrace authenticity and creativity, to break free from “right/wrong” reality, it can impact many people for decades to come.
We discussed the power of love and the value of accepting people for who they are as well as the damage of judging and categorizing groups of people like “hippies”.
The hippie movement left a lasting impact on society at large, even on those who were not hippies. Hippies created a cultural shift in California that can be felt to this day.
We discussed the difference between Truth and illusions. One way we keep illusions alive is by being afraid, feeling guilty and clinging to something we heard or experienced a long time ago. We keep illusions and pain alive by bringing old memories into present day reality.
The idea that you did something “wrong” is what keeps you in bondage. The moment you forgive yourself is the moment you are free. You can choose to be “In Joy” and enjoy your life or you can stay in bondage to the past, it’s all a matter of perception.
Sometimes you have to acknowledge your pain and take steps to heal it. Not all pain and wounds can be washed over by thinking positive. Ultimately we are the only ones who can heal ourselves. Experience is the best teacher. Acceptance is the key to freedom.

In this show we discussed how some people cut themselves off from creativity at a young age for a variety of reasons. Sometimes we are distanced from our creativity because of fear of rejection and disapproval or we learn to deny our creativity and authenticity because we have been bullied by others. Erin shares a story about her son and how he uses his imagination during play.
We discussed the role of creativity in innovation and the interview on OWN with Oprah and Lady Gaga. We discussed how our cultural contempt for creativity has damaged many aspects of our lives from family life to government.
We discussed how againstness and “right/wrong reality” create problems on a personal, professional and global level and how bullies suffer just as much as the people they bully. We discussed how sometimes we are our biggest bullies and the bullying we do to ourselves can often end up hurting others when we lash out. We discussed how living in the box mentally keeps you and your loved ones in prison and how to live free by accepting others as they are.
