Claudia Raiken

Dreambirth imagery…

Claudia RaikenClaudia Raiken, Experienced Doula and Dreambirth Educator and Co-Founder of The Birth Studio, joins Julie Chan in the MouthMedia Network studios powered by Sennheiser. This is one of several episodes on the topic of pregnancy.

In this episode:

  • Julie shares about when she was pregnant – looking for positive stories of pregnancy and birth, because a lot of stories can worry you
  • Raiken on someone who is a Doula who has seen many births—what journey someone they have been through—-women come crying to her, sweep it away, there’s so much out there that makes birth scary, unknown, we’re not in intimate contact with it anymore
  • Was a body worker, began to see a psychic, who told her she has something important to offer to pregnant women,
  • Just was in her head to become a doula, how she learned what a doula was,
  • As she trained, she learned she was naturally inclined
  • Getting whole brain to work together, allow other knowing to filter in
  • How daydreams help manifest, how imagery worksClaudia Raiken
  • Why thinking about giving birth a certain way helps have a better birth experience
  • Dreambirth condenses and helps form good images
  • Paying attention to thoughts and what we focus on, focusing consciousness
  • Images are one way to focus, are short, fun, poetic
  • Our mind likes it more
  • Getting into one’s “dream brain”
  • The more we sense it in our body through becoming imaginative the more effective the exercise, them more of our own beauty pop outs, connecting with our own star, feel starlight, and try to get the person into their senses
  • Dreams are bringing you to your higher happiness, based on whatever you see as meaningful
  • How Raiken had cancer years ago, and it gave her expertise in imagery because she had to use imagery for herself, completely cancer-free now
  • Everything is more alive than we’ve ever realized
  • The micro and the macro
  • Why we can’t cure without giving up guilt, guilt interferes, knowingness absorbs, imagery can clean that up
  • Don’t just get rid of something—replace it
  • The wisdom of unborn babies
  • People will connect with unborn babies at different levels, but almost all moms are moved, some people won’t allow a connection as much as others
  • When babies communicate

004 – Dr. Steven Giron – Waking the Higher Brain

Higher brain living…

Dr. Steve Giron, a.k.a. “Dr. Steve” (bio), master facilitator of higher brain living, joins Julie Chan for a truly fascinating exploration of higher brain living from particle physics to consciousness.

Rebooting the brain, awakening transformation, and biofeedback

Dr. Steve reviews his path from elementary particle physics to spiritual healing, how Julie was a client, what happens in higher brain living, awakening dormant potential in higher brain, quantum mechanics and harnessing a new empowerment state to thrive with purpose for being on the planet, and creating a new brain “hardware” system and new “software” system to create a desired life. How when he was looking for a way to get out of a corporate job and seeking more transformational work he discovered the world of higher brain living. Dr. Steve goes in depth about the discoveries and research of Dr. Michael Cotton, the originator of technique. How an awakening transformation in the brain’s prefrontal cortex can allow the harnessing of abilities, and studies which scientifically help us understand core levels and measure activity in the brain. How techniques can allow people to live as a fearless and authentic self and allow that to be manifested through action in the world. The informal studies of Dr. Penny Montgomery on biofeedback and how they found long chains of beta waves in the brain creating more energy in brain, less stress and ability to be focused and clear. And alpha waves, and what this means for people who can be headed on a downward path if they are not already doing something.
