      This was an AMAZING episode! I’m an intuitive healer and HS empath, and this was an amazingly informative episode to begin a journey into meditation and self reflection. Lynne, I loved listening to you host this episode because you gave such an insight that builds confidence and understanding for those who are hesitant and interested in trying this mindfulness thing. I’m aware of Tara’s connection with energetic healing and have attended some of her sessions, so to hear it from another side that’s growing and getting deeper into their authentic and higher selves is what we need in this post-new world time.

      Adam, it was a pleasure learning from you! I am going to look into your blogs and it’s an energetic prophecy to have your divine masculine energy in the goal to shift the line of thought and perspective in all genders with self-reflection and meditation. I listen to a lot of affirmation meditations, some are even sleep meditation affirmations that are 8-hours. I think affirmation is a more putting word than mantra which as you mentioned has a more Asian and mystical tie, I’m not going to correctly spell the name, but in Hawaiian tradition there is a prayer that is similar in affirmation/mantra called the forgiveness prayer. Something similar to “I love you. I’m sorry, I forgive you. Thank you.”

      I also think the term you brought up of “destructive hyper focus” is a game changer in creating awareness towards what things people with ADHD do to progress their situation versus what others would normally call “procrastinate”.

      Thank you again!
