Episode 000 – Welcome to Fresh Tracks

There is nothing quite like being the first one to cut tracks in the powder on a bluebird day skiing. The connection to nature as you glide down, knowing you are the first to experience the run for the day and that no one else will see what you are seeing right in that moment is priceless.  Words can’t express the feelings involved.

The same feelings of connection, calmness and peace can be experienced when you are living your life on purpose and bringing your vision to reality. For many of us this involves speaking, living our truth and creating our lives from that place of harmony and knowing our Oneness with all.

Being the first one to pave the way for the others that will be following is often our calling in business and in life. You are probably here today because you have something important to say. Something others need to hear and…. It’s personal. It’s spiritual. It’s unique to you.

I can say with complete confidence that you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have gifts to share with others. The interviews and information we’ll share on our Fresh Tracks Podcast are designed with the clear intention of bringing to you the many different facets involved in living life on purpose, bringing your vision to reality, and helping others along the way.

Episode 000 provides background on who Kelly Robbins, MA is, why I started Fresh Tracks, and what you can expect in upcoming episodes.

Let’s cut some tracks together!

Are We Experiencing A Global Transformation of Consciousness?

Episode 93. There is radical tension and discord across the world today. At times it feels unbearable. The magnitude of the turmoil makes me believe there is something bigger going on. What if we are we living through one of Earth’s great transformations? A time that will change the course of humanity forever. In this episode of Fresh Tracks we consider what’s been termed the “Axial Age”. A global shift in the consciousness of humanity. Such a powerful shift in humanity is bringing unprecedented turmoil and unrest on a global scale. Because with all change there is discord.

I share an overview of the world’s great religious leaders and their role in a previous transformation in human consciousness, and then we dive into some of the identifiable characteristics of today’s shift. Ultimately, we each need to know we play a role in today’s transition to a global consciousness. From the Universe in its’ totality, to how we interact with other species on our planet, to how we view and treat each other, we are intertwined and interrelated no matter where we reside.

Fundamentalism, The Brain, and You

In Episode 91 of Fresh Tracks we talk about our brain and how we are designed to react. I found myself yelling at “them” on the television a few weeks ago. Angry. Disturbed at their lack of empathy for others. I experienced a complete disgust of those “other people” as a whole. In this week’s episode of Fresh Tracks, we look at what’s going on behind this anger and the “us versus them” mentality we see across the world today. This leads us to a discussion on brain scans, sacred values, religious fundamentalism and its meaning to us. Is our brain hard-wired to default to this anger and separatism?

I share results of brain research that has been done specifically on religious fundamentalism, sacred values and our willingness to fight and die for what we believe in. Why does this “us versus them” scenario develop in the first place? And what can you, as an individual do to change it? Check out this episode of Fresh Tracks and discover how to physically change your brain to experience empathy, compassion and reason.

Show Notes:

5:00 – Sacred Values and the role they play in decision making
8:30 – Us versus Them on a brain scan
11:00 – Are we all One? The brains natural hard-wiring and the pull and tug of us vs them thinking

20:30 – Meditation and how it effects your brain
25:00 – Seeing your inner work when it shows up
27:00 – Willingness to fight and die for sacred vs non sacred values

A Dive Into Women and White Privilege

The world is in great turmoil. A pandemic. Anger. Fear, and uncertainty permeate all corners of the globe. We are faced with a never-ending stream of difficult decisions to make. In this episode of Fresh Tracks we peek into the dynamics behind the Karen meme that has become so popular. Do you have anything in common with a white woman of privilege bullying others?

I believe it can be insightful to examine what role that “Karen” dynamic plays in our own lives in this episode of Fresh Tracks.

I share a bit about the history of the Karen meme and what she represents in today’s world. What’s going on underneath the extreme meanness we see? Might it be worthwhile to spend time introspecting if there is some Karen in you? We also delve into the Universal Quality of more life and how to cultivate that quality even in these crazy times of upheaval.

CORONAVIRUS: An Opportunity to Face and Conquer our Fears

In episode 85 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Vincent Genna about the value of using the coronavirus pandemic and the change it has brought the world for our own healing. Vincent explains why we can choose to make this an opportunity for healing and choose to be in a different, better place after the pandemic. We do this by first acknowledging that we want to change and going beyond traditional coping skills to substantive healing.

Sound good in theory yet more difficult to implement? Vince shares that it’s natural for our defense mechanisms to kick-in and try to prevent our healing and he provides tips for breaking down these defense mechanisms. We also discuss the importance of eliminating beliefs that prevent our ultimate healing. Creating Fresh Tracks starts with our accepting what is and leaning into the newness in our life. Being courageous enough to connect to our pains and parent ourselves through the often overwhelming inner hurts from the past are key to creating a more fuller and ultimately happier version of you.

Show Notes:

4:45 – Coping with vs healing our Self during the pandemic
8:45 – The power behind allowing yourself to feel and release emotions
12:00 – Acknowledge that you want to create something different
17:00 – How to recognize what you genuinely believe about yourself

Feeling alone and isolated during the coronavirus pandemic and stay at home orders?

Earth Day Prayer and Meditation

Environmental issues can seem overwhelming, yet when we turn our attention to small but significant acts that make an impact, we reignite the flame of hope and vision of living in harmony with nature and with respect for our planet.

I invite you to choose to lean-in today. To choose to join the collective consciousness and intentionally participate in our vision of healing our planet. Of achieving an ideal of a healthy and whole world for all.

We may not know how this vision will materialize, but what we do know is that our lives right now are different than they were even a few weeks ago. We are learning to connect and live differently through necessity. Inevitably, innovation has popped its creative head into our lives, showing us we can learn, adapt, and change quickly when we choose to. From how we work, how we use technology, to how we connect with others.

Innovation and necessity are what will lead us all to strive to live in and create a world that works for everyone.

Now is a time to first do our spiritual practices and then act on what we are inspired to do by these practices. Joining together in prayer and visioning a world of health, wholeness and vibrancy. Taking action while staying at home to bring into alignment our wishes, our vision and our actions.
