Zen DeBrucke is on today’s podcast. She is the author of “Your Inner GPS: Follow your Internal Guidance to Optimal Health, Happiness and Satisfaction.” Her goal is to help clients find a stress free and happy existence by getting in touch with their inner voice.

Michael and Zen start off talking about the inner GPS. Zen believes that everyone is born with this inner voice guiding them, but most lose sight of that influence. Buddhism and Daoism have strong beliefs in the use of meditation to help people use their minds as a tool rather than an operating system. The more people realize there is a flow within their body, the more they can train their mind to get into this energy. Once someone gets into that flow, they are able to understand their thoughts and emotions clearer.

Neuroplasticity is the next. Zen says she has a tool kit to make people’s minds move in different directions. Zen teaches practices that help move their brain into a different domain when they have a block or feel trapped. She uses an example about her and her father’s relationship as well as a coaching session she had with Van Jones.

Zen describes how each person’s internal guidance system is linked in with their destiny. This internal GPS is trying to help use the mind to move towards a persons optimal life. Zen uses an example about the owner of Cliff Bar, as well as a personal example of an experience she had at the Denver airport. Her experience, in short, lead her to catching a plane ride that she would have never been able to catch had she not listened to her internal GPS. Michael also shares a personal example he had about listening to his internal GPS which lead to a great business opportunity. All these examples show the constant battle between what your gut is telling you to do, and what your head is telling you to do.

Michael and Zen wrap the podcast up discussing the meaning of ones “life purpose”. We have thousands of life purposes rather than just one. True fulfillment comes from giving and contributing. You don’t get that feeling when you are too focused on on one item. Michael says that one of his life purposes is doing the splits.
