Learn to listen to your body’s signals

Be sure to tune in this week for The Shift Network’s very first Intuitive Medicine Summit (hosted by yours truly), a FREE online event from June 7-11.


Normally, these summits are broadcast shortly after they’re recorded but this one was postponed for a couple months due to scheduling delays – but I think there’s a deeper reason, on a metaphysical level.

Personally, I think the air-date was delayed so enough time would pass that I could report the powerful results I experienced after applying some of the things I learned during my interviews with more than 30 of today’s highly sought-after intuitive healers, doctors, and researchers — including Cyndi Dale, Dr. Titus Chiu, Robert Peng, Dr. Shamini Jain, and Steven Washington.

When I began preparing for this summit four months ago, I made notes about my physical condition so I could compare and contrast afterwards. When I looked back on those notes today, I was stunned by some of the health challenges I was experiencing then that no longer vex me now. In fact, I had forgotten how they used to rule my life.

I’m sleeping better and my formerly life-disrupting gut issues have subsided almost completely. Plus, I’ve lost 15 pounds and my pre-lockdown clothes fit again. I don’t have to live in pajama pants anymore!

This was a direct result of the interviews in this summit. I gathered pieces of information from each guest and put them together to solve health challenges that have plagued me for decades. For years, I’d been begging doctors to help, but none could suss out the holistic causes of these chronic issues. By listening to my intuition and following a trail of synchronistic breadcrumbs, I was led to information that helped me figure out the answers to the question, What’s wrong with me???

My wish is for you to do the same. You can register for free here. The only cost is if you choose to purchase the upgrade package, which allows you to keep the recordings and gives you access to all the bonuses. But to watch the summit online is free, as it streams during the week of June 7-11.

I spent a lot of time interviewing medical intuitives like Wendie Colter, Tina Zion, Deborah King, and more, asking how they do what they do, and how we can do it too.

I also talked to medical practitioners who use their own intuition when working with patients, like Judith Orloff, MD, Norm Shealy, MD, Beth McDougall, MD, Dr. Natasha Fallahi, Cecile Carson, MD, and many others.

You’ll hear numerous “wounded healer” stories as my guests share about regaining their own wellness after tuning in to their intuitive wisdom. And, because this is a challenge many of us face, several conversations include advice about how to communicate with mainstream-minded practitioners who don’t believe in all this “woo-woo” stuff!

There’s so much more I could tell you, but I think you’d be better served to see for yourself. Register here for the FREE Intuitive Medicine Summit and check out the power-packed lineup of speakers. You’ll be glad you did.

I’m not *that* bad! Are you?

Albrecht Dürer woodcut, The Penitent

Dig this: I’m not a bad enough person to feel as bad as I once did. While I’m not perfect, I’ve never caused enough harm to deserve the levels of guilt and anxiety I’ve dealt with most of my life. In order to feel this much guilt and fear of punishment, I would have had to commit a heinous crime. Guess what … not guilty.


So where do these unwanted feelings of unwarranted unworthiness come from? Societal conditioning? Brain washing by Madison Avenue and/or the Illuminati? Past life karma?

Or, it could come from ancestral trauma. The science of epigenetics has proven that traumatic events, which cause a fight-or-flight reaction, can change the way our genes express themselves. This physical manifestation of PTSD gets passed down through the generations. Here’s just one article explaining how it works, if you want more information. As the host of three annual Ancestral Healing Summits for The Shift Network, I’ve interviewed a ton of experts who agree on this so, for me, this is not in question.

My session airs Thursday, February 25, 1pm Pacific, and will stream free for 48 hours after.

Ancestral trauma can kink your hose in ways you don’t even realize. In fact, in my own session of this year’s Ancestral Healing Summit, the awesome Nick Mattos and I talk about how to rediscover and reawaken your magical heritage by looking into your ancestral past, to discover where/how your connection to your gifts might have been broken.

For clarity, when I used the words magical heritage, I’m talking about natural gifts and abilities that we all have, things like a green thumb or a knack for cooking, crafting, or even healing and intuitive abilities. Sharing these gifts in communities are how humankind survived for as long as we have before technology made life so much … ahem … easier. These skills were often the causes of accusations of witchcraft which, as we know, resulted in some pretty heinous behavior.

But because many of our gifts have been oppressed, we may not even know we have them. Or, we may be aware of them, but are afraid to demonstrate them for fear of reprisals or rejections.

You should check out the Summit. I had some amazing conversations with some amazing people, who had amazing information to share. It airs free during the week of February 22-26. My session airs at Thursday, February 25 at 1pm Pacific time, and will stream free for 48 hours after that.

And, at the risk of sounding like a crummy commercial, I also talk at the end of my interview with Nick about a new project I’ve been working on with the lovely and talented Carrie Paris. Since discovering her Relative Tarot and Oracle, I’ve become a big fan of her work. (Check out the interview I did with Carrie for Mind Yourself on the topic of communicating with ancestors.)

As Carrie and I got to know one another, she suggested that we combine our areas of expertise to create an oracle designed around ancestral healing, I jumped at the chance. Check out the Generations Oracle!

This divination kit (featuring Carrie’s gorgeous artistry), includes a reading cloth, casting charms, a pendulum, informational coins (based on the Lenormand oracle symbols) and an instruction booklet. Bring your own ancestors. We’ll be teaching classes in its use further down the road, so let me know if you’re interested in getting on the waiting list by subscribing to my blog. That will be the best way to stay in the loop.

Anyway, back to ancestral healing … I’ve talked about this elsewhere, but it bears repeating. By doing this work, I feel so much less existential guilt and anxiety. I understand my mom — the unintentional source of some of my pain — so much better. I grok how her family history dented her in ways that were beyond her ability to cope, or even repair without a lot of inner work. And people in previous generations didn’t know about the kinds of inner work we’re used to these day.

I see, now, how she felt as bad about herself — worse actually — than I did before embarking on my own inner work. She was, by all accounts, a good person who loved her family. She was a good mom. But she was screwed up by her family story, and passed it on to me … which I passed on to my kids, and they passed on to their kids …

What happened in my mom’s lineage to break her in just this way? I’m still scratching the surface (in fact, I’m writing a novel based on the fascinating story I discovered in my mom’s ancestral history about witch trials and mine explosions), but I can say, without a doubt, that her father experienced numerous mind-bending traumas in a very short time frame, at a fairly young age. He didn’t stand a chance to be a healthy individual, much less a healthy parent. The pain he was in could have easily caused my mom to feel the way she did, and for me to feel how I felt, and my kids, and their kids …

I’ve been working with my mom’s father’s ancestors because, in triage order, this branch needs attention more than the others — it’s the most wounded. Since beginning this exploration, my physical and mental health have improved tremendously. I used to keep my bottle of Xanax with me at all times, just in case. Now, I only rarely feel anxiety intense enough to medicate myself. That, in itself, is a tremendous shift.

What about you? Do you see anything in yourself, like this, that just doesn’t make sense until you look at your ancestral history? I’d love to read your stories in the Comments.

On hosting the Beyond the Veil Summit

The magic inherent in human existence has never been more palpable for me, as a result of hosting a series of profound interviews for the Beyond the Veil Summit, which airs online (free) October 26-30, 2020 on The Shift Network. I went in thinking I knew a thing or two about the nature of the “veil” between the worlds, so imagine my delighted surprise to discover that my years of exploration only scratched the surface.

I spent weeks conducting these interviews and, now that they’re in the rearview mirror, my ability to dance with one foot in both worlds has grown exponentially. Like the flow of a river eroding rocks along its way, expanding its shores, the flow of powerful information broadened my perspective. 

Imagine what it will be like for you to listen to them in the space of one week, at the time of the year when the Veil between the worlds is thinnest

You’ll hear familiar voices and new ones, too. Grandaddy of NDE research Dr. Raymond Moody graces us with his shiny presence, as do experts in the field of NDEs and Mediumship like Eben Alexander M.D. and Suzanne Giesemann

I also talked to Elizabeth Anne Hill, whose relationship with her deceased twin sister continues beyond death, carrying her on an amazing journey through life trusting her needs will be met. Carrie Paris, creator of the Relative Tarot, talked about working with oracles to connect with our ancestors and guides. Rob Schwartz and Linda Backman spoke about the planning sessions we participate in between incarnations.

Many beloved Shift faculty members also shared their stories. Sandra Ingerman, Robert Moss, Michael Stone and don Oscar Miro-Quesada have all experienced NDEs, and Mona Delfino and Matthew Fox shared wisdom about soul contracts and the physics of angels. 

The list goes on, with each interviewee adding their own magnificent story. And, although almost three dozen people shared unique perspectives on a vast and ineffable concept, the takeaway can be boiled down to three inspiring points:

  1. You are never alone, no matter how strongly you feel to the contrary;
  2. Love is literally all there is, no matter how vividly the world is demonstrating otherwise;
  3. Every little thing is gonna be alright, due to the absolute Truth of points 1 and 2.

Yes, we’ve heard these platitudes before, and it can be hard to believe they’re more than just pretty words. But if you listen to these people, and hear their evidence, you’ll see there’s no truer way to look at life.

Before the interviews began, even though I’m fairly well-adjusted, I felt alone and abandoned by the Big U. I thought, because I’d never heard anyone else say the things I know to be True, I must be wrong and maybe a little bit crazy. I felt despair at the chaos swirling around us, presenting us daily with some new fresh hell.

Now, I feel connected and peaceful. My anxiety levels have dropped. And I know, for the first time in my life, that I am not alone and I am love.

This. Is. Massive.

My wish is for you to feel the same. Listen to these life-changing conversations by registering here. They’re free for an entire week. The only cost is if you choose to purchase the collection for future listening.

See you on the “other side.”

P.S. During this groundbreaking 5-day event with over 30 incredible speakers, you’ll discover:

  • The awakening that’s now emerging from the scientific study of consciousness
  • How guides, angels, and our loved ones from the other side are ready and eager to help us heal
  • Ways to connect to the other side through a healing meditation
  • The profound benefits of a shared-death experience (SDE) with a loved one 
  • How to communicate with deceased loved ones and help others make those connections… for healing, closure, and a life filled with more joy and peace
  • Ways that mediumship opens you to your higher self and raises your vibration to experience your true nature as love
  • A clear pathway to de-mystifying death and taking away the stigma and fear around it
  • Support to enter the beauty and pathos of active grieving
  • How artists can encounter an entire support system for their work on the other side of the veil
  • The contemporary science backing startling discoveries that support the existence of angelic beings
  • That insights drawn from NDEs can help you break through fears and past trauma
  • And many more beautiful discoveries…

Mind Yourself TV — it’s TIME!

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE MOST RECENT EPISODE.


And now, for a little back story…

I’ve been gearing up for months to launch an online chat show, independent from my work as a program host with The Shift Network, and it’s time to finally roll out Mind Yourself. Want to know how I know it’s time? Check out this stunning synchronicity …


First, a little background so the story makes sense:

I’ve spent most of my adult life building up to this. Because my career experience is primarily in news, standup comedy and hosting interviews, it seems wise to combine those skills and launch my own YouTube channel.

My work as a program host with The Shift Network is a dream come true and I’m grateful for the opportunity to interview some of the brightest minds in the cutting edge field of human consciousness and transformation. But in these interviews, I’m mostly asking the questions TSN’s viewers want me to ask. While their questions are always good ones, oftentimes I have questions I’m dying to ask, too, but it’s not the right time or place.

Sometimes, if there’s a spare minute or two after a broadcast, I’ll toss a question or two at my guest, but it’s frustrating that we never have time to turn it into a full blown conversation.

In addition to Shift’s guests, there are fascinating people I’m itching to interview who may never be booked with The Shift Network. I have questions for them, too!

So, that’s what Mind Yourself is all about … sharing with you intimate conversations with fascinating people. Want to ask a question? Send it in, then watch to see if it gets answered on the show.

I still haven’t addressed how I know it’s time to get started, so here it is. Lately, all of the pieces are beginning to fall into place and the nudges from the Big U to just do it already are impossible to ignore. It’s time. Now.

After the name for the show was delivered from my future self (that’s a story for another day), it was time to design a logo (did I mention my past experience as a graphic designer?). Because the backdrop for my set is this colorful braingasm (design by Melting Miltons) I wanted a similarly colorific brain for the logo.

I Googled for affordable (or free) clipart, and found this exquisite design on iStock by Getty Images:

Isn’t this awesome?

I fully intended to purchase a license to use this, but then read in the small print that it cannot be used in for logo purposes, so I kept up the search.

I was getting discouraged because I wasn’t finding what I wanted. I began to doubt … am I on the right track? Should I wait until what I need is easily delivered, like everything else while developing the program? Am I rushing this? Is it the right time?

I didn’t want to allow discouragement to take the wind out of my sails, so I played around in Photoshop and created the nifty logo that’s posted at the top of this page.

This is a picture of my mind being blown by synchronicity.

After a long day sitting at the ‘puter, I decided to get out of the house for a while. I went to Sprouts to get some organic stuff and saw this at the checkout stand:

To say that my jaw dropped and I stood in uffish thought would be a severe understatement. “Is it time to do this?” I had asked before I left the house.

The answer came thundering in: YES, IT’S LITERALLY TIME.

Can the Big U get any clearer than that? I submit that it cannot. It’s time.

So … welcome to the birth of Mind Yourself with Lisa Bonnice. Here are the pertinent links. You’re one of the first people to see them so don’t be surprised if things are a little quiet, for now. Go ahead and follow them all, and help me build this. Later, you can tell your friends, “I was there at the beginning!”

Marc Allen and me at the offices of New World Library. Marc thinks this picture makes him look a little nutty, and my hair is all wonky, but it’s better than the other selfie we took so we’re sort of stuck with it. 😉

The first show is scheduled to air on Friday, September 20, with my guest Marc Allen, publisher at New World Library and the man who discovered Eckhart Tolle (the author of The Power of Now).

Marc is also the author of The Magical Path and developer of the program How to Get Happily Published, and those are just a couple of the things we’ll be talking about.

Got a question for Marc? Post it on the Facebook page, then watch to see if it gets asked and answered. See you then!
