Ask Dr. Bunny. Can kids be helped by a mentor? Jim McGinley, guest

Jim McGinley joins Dr. Bunny in Santa Clara, California, at Brendon Burchard’s World’s Greatest Speaker seminar, to discuss a very inspirational story.

Jim’s story begins with hope, or actually, lack of hope. Jim’s son, Ryan, who was a freshman in high school at the time, had been sick for about a month and was very behind. Ryan felt like there was no hope of ever getting caught up and finishing his school year. Jim mentored his son through this whole process of completing his school work, one step at a time, and watched his son go from being despondent and hopeless, to being a positively charged & inspired young man. Ryan went on to proceed through high school with amazing grades and even graduated college with honors!

Jim has learned that if you give a person the “Why”, they will will figure out the “How”!

When Ryan saw that Jim believed in him, he believed in himself. It was quite a learning experience and Jim realized that all kids need someone to believe in them, and someone to tell them they CAN DO IT!

It’s amazing what young people can achieve when they realize there’s someone behind them, rooting for them & saying “You can do it!”.

An inspiring & uplifting story!

I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and a Ayurvedic Health Practitioner. I have spent the past 17 years working with others in the realm of health and healing and am currently focused on using the tools of holistic nutrition, FDN and Ayurveda to support those that are interested in troubleshooting health imbalances in order to optimize their health and live a vibrant existence! My own life experiences have taught me that health and happiness go hand in hand. In order to advance to a higher level of productivity in life its important to put in place a supportive framework to help you thrive and stay on track. I draw from a framework that utilizes healing foods, lifestyle modifications, herbs and supportive tools to help you eliminate hidden stressors and restore the brilliance that is you!

About Surya Anderson:

My journey on the healing path began unintentionally when I was in my early 20s. As a young man full of health and vigor, I had decided to travel to India and Nepal to backpack and study the origins of Vipassana meditation. During my time sitting vipassana, I sustained a crippling low back injury that turned my health upside down. This injury, coupled with dysentary left me physically broken. Soon after, I found myself in a state of chronic pain, and thus began the quest to regain my health.

Throughout the next month while traveling through central Europe I saw a number of physicians and received a CT scan. The results showed a partial herniation of the L4-L5 disc. The doctor, with whom I received this diagnosis, recommended that if I lay down for couple of weeks on the floor icing my back I would see signs of improvement. This of course was not the case. Eventually I made my way back to the states and I was referred to my fathers chiropractor. Dr. Khalsa wore a white turban, a long beard and had an exotic practise he called Kundalini yoga. He sent me home with a handful of core strengthening exercises and psoas releasing stretches and so began my study of yoga. This introduction into yoga took another 10 years to solidify and make its way fully into my life. However, I am now a certified yoga instructor through the “Yoga Alliance certified school of Yoga for All” and I am committed to sharing and providing resources to help others reclaim their own health and vitality.

Ask Dr. Bunny. How can we protect ourselves from the Equifax breach of security? Emily Atkins, guest.

Emily Atkins

Emily Atkins of LegalShield and IDShield, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss the recent breach of security at Equifax.

It is estimated that personal information of 145 Million was stolen during this breach! How do you know if you have been effected? And even more importantly, what can you do to protect yourself?

Should you sign up for Equifax’s ‘free’ lifetime protection now? What does that actually mean, and what are they offering??

And, once your identity is stolen, how do you get it back?

Tune in as Emily shares some very valuable information and insight that you need to know NOW!

About LegalShield:

In short, life can be unpredictable, and the law can be complicated. We’ve created a model for legal coverage in which you know exactly what you’re getting and precisely how much you’re paying for it. Once you sign up, you can sit back, relax, and know you’re covered by an entire law firm.

For more than 40 years, our goal has been to take a straightforward, practical approach to legal coverage. We carried those same values through to the LegalShield process itself, laid out in three easy steps.

Step 1: Become a Member

Pick a plan for yourself, your family, or your small business. You’ll be connected with a local team of lawyers with extensive knowledge of regional laws and regulations. After you’re signed up, download the app to communicate with your firm in just a few clicks.

Step 2:  Go About Your Day

No one plans on legal trouble. But when life throws you a curveball, we can make sense of the legal complexities and help you come out on top. From estate planning and traffic violations to family law and civil litigation—no matter what trouble you run into, give your team a call. Your representative will be in touch within hours.

Step 3: Huddle With Your Lawyer

Now it’s time to strategize. Your lawyer will review your case and discuss your options with you. It could be as simple as reviewing a document, writing a demand letter, or making a phone call on your behalf. Should the issue lead to some time in court—whether as a defendant or a plaintiff—you get at least 25% off your lawyer’s hourly rates, even if the issue started before you were a member. At the end of it all, you can breathe easy. The biggest benefit of LegalShield is knowing you have a legal team in your side. Worry less. Live more. We’ve got you covered.

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is a Psychic? Crystal Heinemann, guest

Crystal Heinemann joins Dr. Bunny for a very interesting interview on clairvoyance, and being a Psychic. Crystal discusses how her clairvoyant abilities even helped when she was a flight attendant!

Crystal built some long-lasting relationships while being a flight attendant in the private aviation world – flying with rock bands and famous Hollywood elite – because she could tune into their souls and meet on a soul-to-soul level, not just seeing them as someone famous.

This is a fascinating interview with a very special woman! Tune in – you don’t want to miss this!

About Crystal Heinemann:

I grew up as a beach girl in Santa Barbara and Ventura, California.  I was always a mild-mannered yet out going child;  I always say that I’m an introvert with great social skills and this was true for my childhood as well.

I was raised in a spiritually open space.  Of course, you never know this when you are a kid but now looking back, I was lucky to be raised by very young parents that loved exploring spiritual movements.  After all, it was the 70’s!  At the time, all of my friends’ parents were of like mind; where Yogananda and Ram Das were common names.  I was also raised vegetarian, as my parents thought this would allow my sisters and I to complete our karma at a rapid pace as well as accelerate how many times we were to reincarnate in the future.  Oddly, as a young child this made complete sense to me. I remember sitting by the fireplace at my grandparents house and my Mom and Grandma discussing what ghosts were visiting and where they traveled on the Astral the previous night…You know, the usual stuff!

Like most growing children, once I hit my teenage years, I moved away from my innate spirituality.  My parents put me in a Catholic High School, I’m pretty sure this was the catalyst for my separation from the divine and my personal spiritual space.  Once in my 20’s I moved even further away.  Almost as a rebellion, as I look back on it.

My teen’s, 20’s and early 30’s my life experiences taught me the life lesson of The Wounded Healer.  For this, I am most thankful for!  I would not be standing before you today, as a spiritual psychic and healer had I not experienced the life of hard knocks, through the eyes of a wounded healer.

I rekindled my kindred spiritual quest about 10 years ago…after almost a couple of decades of self-hatred, co-dependency and extremely unhealthy boundary setting…and a divorce too…I needed help and good ol’ therapy was NOT doing the trick.  I knew I needed more.  I knew in order to work on myself, I needed to work on my soul.  The deep dark depths of my soul.  I knew this was where my healing needed to take place.

I dove head first into seeking out any and all forms of “alternative” healing.  I became a student of spiritual knowledge, taking in every healers different technique.  It felt magical to me and honestly it was the true sense of divine.  I felt the wounded woman I once was completely rise like a Phoenix from the ashes with a new-found love of all creation of life.  It took years of healing energy work for my light to shine bright again and it was the best years, unraveling and learning my soul.

I am a constant work in progress but now I try not too take myself to seriously.  Leading with love and amusement, the highest vibration of energy.  Sometimes I nail it, other times I’m a big FAIL and that’s ok!  We are all ok!  Life is beautiful, it’s just the shift of energy sometimes to see the light of how beautiful life really is.

Now, I am so blessed to have my own Healing Master, a Being Without Body or Light Being or some would say Spirit Guide, but he is so much more.  Cebu is his name and he has given me the gift to heal others along their journey of life.

Before becoming a professional clairvoyant psychic and healer, I was a commercial and corporate flight attendant for 21 years.  Traveling the globe, picking up stories and information from past lives to bring forward for this very moment!
