  • Hypnos is the son of Nychta (night) and Erebus (darkness)
  • Thanatos (death) is the twin brother of Hypnos
  • According to Homer (not Homer Simpson :-) ) Hypnos lived on the Greek island of Lymnos which is still in existence today
  • Hypnos’s wife is Pasithea given to him by Hera the wife of Zeus
  • Pasithea is the goddess of relaxation
  • Morpheus, one of the main characters of Matrix was inspired by the ancient Greek god Morpheus, Hypnos’s son: https://amzn.to/2JDXOfh
  • Morpheus shapes our dreams
  • According to the stoics, when going to sleep we need to be indifferent about the past and about the future
  • The Roman god of sleep is Somnus
  • The word insomnia comes from Somnus
  • The Norse goddess of night allowing for sleep is Nótt
  • Voluntary discomfort is highly recommended by the Stoics for good sleep
  • Voluntary discomfort helps you create order through chaos
  • The stoics say we need to find the dynamic balance between passion and dispassion
  • They recommend learning to persevere
  • Create voluntary discomfort through occasionally sleeping on the floor
  • You cannot become a stronger human being by avoiding stressors

SMS 057: Sleepy Time

Read Show Notes

Topics

  • The song of the day is Enter Sandman by Metallica and can be found here: https://amzn.to/2pM9g1k
  • Tim tells a story from the past weekend
  • Real Ayurveda’s look at getting sleep
  • Sleep induces the good Kapha qualities and the much needed Tamas qualities
  • Contrary to what commodity Ayurveda and Yoga say, Tamas is good
  • Without proper Tamas you cannot fall asleep, you cannot pause, you cannot exist in human form
  • Sattva is about balance, Rajas is about activity and Tamas is about resilience
  • You need all three (Sattva, Rajas and Tamas) in order to thrive
  • If you do not have resilience, you do not have energy to withstand anything
  • It’s not only about the amount of sleep you get, it is also about the quality of sleep you get
  • Kapha is what prepares you for sleep
  • There are two main Kapha times in the day, the 4hrs (ish) following sunrise and the 4hrs (ish) following sunset
  • If you work shifts other than the regular day shift, you do NOT have to quit your job in order to get good sleep
  • You need to prepare yourself for sleep because you must have energy to go to sleep
  • If your nervous system is too depleted you cannot get good sleep and you end up in a vicious cycle of sleep deprivation without knowing you are in it
  • The Rain App that we talk about is this one: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/rain-rain-sleep-sounds/id478687481
  • It’s ok to change your sleeping schedule if you have to, instead of just fighting to go to sleep at a certain time when it’s not feasible
  • Changing your body temperature drastically during the day and/or evening will help you get great sleep
  • Hot Yoga has a lot of great benefits and solid sleep is one of them
  • If you do not have access to great hot yoga, a hot Epsom salt bath can help
  • Contact us for sessions of Electronic Gem Therapy podcast@spartanmindstrength.com
  • Look for our upcoming course on the Pulse Meditation Technique or contact us for personal one on one online training podcast@spartanmindstrength.com
  • During a session of sleep you must achieve both the REM state and the NREM state in order to feel inspired and refreshed
  • Oil application on the feet may work for some but it has not worked for us; it is too high maintenance
  • The vaseline movie reference Tim is making is from the 1996 Striptease with Burt Reynolds
  • The dance movie reference Tim is making is from the 1983 Risky Business with Tom Cruise
  • The internal nourishment of the body should take priority over the external nourishment
  • Make sure that your actions and words during the day will allow you to "go to sleep at night"
  • What do you want your last thought to be before falling asleep?

SMS 056: The Crown Chakra For Business

Read Show Notes

Topics

  • The Third Eye For Business and the Crown Chakra For Business are the hardest two episodes we have ever done
  • If any of the previous chakras are not working properly the Crown Chakra will be off also
  • Episode 49 is about the Crown Chakra and Your Mind In A Non-FooFoo Way. You can listen to it here: https://spartanmindstrength.libsyn.com/sms-049-the-crown-chakra-and-your-mind-in-a-non-foofoo-way
  • Tim tells a story from back in the day
  • Can you hear the hawk in the background?
  • In business, enlightenment is turning what happens no matter good or bad into something better
  • In business, you must work with the crown chakra horizontally; if you work with it vertically you will end up with no clients
  • Your unlimited possibilities can come from nowhere and change your entire career
  • When the crown chakra is working, it’s working; when it’s not working, it sucks
  • When the crown chakra is working, the obstacle becomes the way to something great
  • At the studio, some of our major obstacles became name clauses for policies that helped the studio grow dramatically
  • The Obstacle Is The Way book by Ryan Holiday can be found at https://amzn.to/35GtN7V
  • The path to horizontal enlightenment creates community; the path to vertical enlightenment requires isolation
  • One of the main things that helped Tim work on all 7 chakras is non-structured meditation
  • One of main things that helped Vie work on all 7 chakras is the Upanishads and Stoicism
  • The Upanishads and Stoicism work very well together
  • This completes the 7-episode series of the Chakras for Business

SMS 055: The Third Eye Chakra For Business

Read Show Notes

Topics

  • The Third Eye Chakra helps you create a great business not just a good business
  • Tim tells another story from back in the day
  • What made KaYoga so different from our Yoga Studio and Personal Training Studio
  • The Personal Training Studio was a book picture of a good business but not a great business
  • The Yoga Studio was the result of us being self-employed, until we made the shift
  • Does your business have procedures that other people can follow or do you always have to be there?
  • The Third Eye will help you become the observer of your business instead of the doer in your business
  • Most people think they own a business but in reality they are self-employed
  • The Third Eye also helps you see what your clients really need instead of just what they say they want
  • Hot Yin was the result of a strong Third Eye Chakra
  • Good is Great’s biggest enemy, from the book Good to Great: https://amzn.to/2IB2wdi
  • Hot Yin gave people what they wanted and most importantly what they needed
  • If you do not give people what they want they will not come. But if you do not give them what they need, they will not stay.
  • Episode 48 is about the Third Eye Chakra and Your Mind In A Non-FooFoo Way. You can listen to it here: https://spartanmindstrength.libsyn.com/spartan20life20episode204820mp3
  • The Third Eye Chakra helps you put a puzzle together that has not been created before
  • Do not be attached to the outcome, be genuinely curious about the outcome
  • The definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results
  • Is your self-employment or your business serving where you want to go with your life?
  • Step back and become the unbiased observer of your life and your business

Some of what our listeners have said:

I believe that working with the chakras helps with ALL aspects of life - including business! I love your podcast and have enjoyed all of the episodes about the chakras - both for personal growth and business! To anyone that has not yet listened to this podcast, I HIGHLY recommend it! Great information with practical methods for applying that knowledge to making transformational lifestyle choices.
👍👍

It’s so funny how one “simple” word can have such a profound impact!

I just finished listening to episode 55. And, while I (of course) enjoyed the entire episode, I have to say that I LOVE the way you use “curiosity”! It’s definitely a challenge at times to remain unattached to outcomes and remain the observer. I feel like “curiosity” is the missing link to that equation! By approaching the situation through the perspective of the observer WITH CURIOSITY...that’s what makes it exciting to try new things without getting caught in the web of attachment!! Thank you for sharing that! (Where’s the exploding head emoji when you need it?) 🙏❤️🙏

--
Spartan Mind Strength Podcast 🙌 listening your podcasts and can not stop admiring your positivity and approach to life! Warm greetings to both of you! You are doing amazing job.

Your podcast is my best companion when I am driving.
