The Love Is Viral Show Episode 82: Empowering Empaths with Annie Emprima-Martin

Annie Emprima-Martin believes the way to mastery as an empath is to switch our empathic valve to one of transmission. Annie helps her clients understand the power of the mind by showing them that by using words and thoughts they can manipulate the hormones in their body. 

Annie is a mom, Army veteran, certified spiritual empowerment coach, and startup investor. 

In this episode, we discuss:  

How to identify and manage what we feel in our body as an empath. 

The vibration of words and our feelings .

The power of our mind and its connection to what we feel in our body. 

How overcoming trauma can be viewed as a lesson in order to assist others in moving through a similar experience. 

And how we can move out of a state of chaos into one of clarity.

Annie served in the Nevada Army National Guard. She was deployed to Kuwait in 2016, traveling to cities in Jordan, Iraq, and Qatar during the deployment. At the time, she served as finance support operations for the 17th Sustainment Brigade. She was responsible for money as a commodity on the battlefield, conducting vault audits on U.S. and foreign currency at installations throughout the Middle East

She has a master’s degree in metaphysical humanistic science and a bachelor’s in business administration. She holds multiple certificates in various categories of coaching but her true calling is in metaphysical empowerment coaching.

Her spiritual gifts – high intuition and the ability to intensify strengths and weaknesses in others – began developing during her deployment. It has become a mission of hers to work with entrepreneurs and business professionals in her community to facilitate their awakening into their own mind-body-soul strengths, abilities, and life purpose through her coaching and consulting company, One.Emprima.

I love Annie’s reminder to fill our cup first so we can overflow with love, creating a ripple effect to make love go viral across the globe.

Fernanda Lind is an award-winning entrepreneur and the host of the Wired to Win Podcast. She holds two master’s degrees and understands the pressure of working in a high-stakes environment after a career in the financial markets, managing a billion-dollar portfolio, and a decade long background as a professional dancer performing at the highest level.

The Love Is Viral Show Bonus Episode 79: The Effect of Social Media on Empathic Kids with Olivia

My daughter Olivia, joins me again to share the effect social media has on empathic children and how we are navigating it together in our home.

Olivia named LOVE IS VIRAL, would like to be a scientist and child author, recently skipped 3rd grade, and is equal parts logic and soul. This episode was spurred by her desire to manage her moods when engaging in social media and text messaging with her friends.

Welcome to my world. 

Olivia came to me, recognizing how these social channels were affecting her and I’m so proud of her desire to help other kids who have the big feelings. 

As promised, below are the guidelines we use to talk to the girls about how to navigate this digital social landscape:

Social media and text messaging are tools, but still require the same manners and characteristics we try to embody when we are face to face. We must show respect, good manners, set and respect healthy boundaries. These tools are amazing in keeping us connecting, but come with their own challenges.

If someone else calls you (unless they are a parent) you do not hang up on the friend you are talking to in order to speak to the other person. Show the person you are talking to respect and kindness. The other call can wait, and when you speak to them you give them your full attention.

If you want others to join your game you can together decide how that will happen. It becomes troubling when you splinter off and then leave someone out.

If someone hangs up it is many times a connection issue. Don’t take it personally and refuse to answer the phone because you think they hung up on you on purpose. This is making an assumption that may not be correct and you could do damage to a friendship by assuming someone has bad intentions.

You do not have to answer every text. 

Do not text bomb friends. If someone text bombs you, you can manage your own emotions and accessibility by putting DND on their contact instead of yelling at them that they’re annoying.

Do not become upset if someone does not respond right away. They do not have to respond to you. They have busy lives and parents who also manage their digital usage. This is a big opportunity to practice respect and healthy boundaries. 

It is very hard to read tone in text so it causes a lot of disagreements even in adults. If you continue to become frustrated with each other through text, you will only be allowed to talk through FaceTime until you are mature enough to handle your emotions.

The adults will not be taking sides as to who is right and wrong. Instead we will guide you as to how to communicate better, but expect us to ask you, “How could each of you have handled that better?” and/or taking away devices when we see they are becoming problematic in your friendships.

We’d rather you schedule a FaceTime or Zoom call so you can fully engage and hear each other’s tone and communicate with your full attention rather than communicate in a distracted fashion that continues to lead to fights. 

Assume your friends love you and aren’t trying to hurt your feelings on purpose. Emotional maturity will come with time, but starts by being open to the fact that no one is trying to hurt you. 

THE PARENTS ARE TALKING TO EACH OTHER ABOUT THIS AND MONITORING YOUR COMMUNICATION. It is our responsibility to guide you and make you the best people (and friends possible). We are not snooping. We are parenting.

We hope this becomes a lesson in friendship and effective communication.

The Love Is Viral Show Episode 76: Empathy = Survival with Samina Hadi-Tabassum

Note to viewers:

This episode was recorded prior to the murder of George Floyd. Racism, a heterogenous society and generational change are discussed in the last five minutes. Any references made to the state of the world at the time was referring to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are heartened to see the way the world has come together to create massive change. Host Jeanette Schneider made the comment that she has become aware that the change she wishes to see may not happen in her lifetime. She’s eating her words. #blacklivesmatter

Samina Hadi-Tabassum is a clinical associate professor at Erikson Institute where she leads the Child Life program and the online Masters in Early Childhood Education program. She teaches graduate courses in cognitive development, language development. Her research and publications focus on race, language and culture.

In this episode we discuss human survival, from mirror neurons to epigenetics and all the science in between. We dig into how humans have evolved, why we need empathy more than ever to ensure our survival, and the move to a heterogeneous society.  

I got goose bumps when Samina shared that the tribes that showed empathy were the ones who survived. Wrap your heart around that fact and get to spreading the love. 

You can find Samina at saminahaditabassum.com or on Twitter @SaminaHadiTabas
