Guest, SCARLETT CURTIS
My name is Scarlett and I am a Holistic Nutritionist, Reiki Master, and Intuitive Energy Healer. I help people heal and move forward on their path through a combination of energy healing, nutritional guidance and spiritual support.
My journey into the realm of holistic health and healing started nearly 11 years ago in 2009 when I was searching for ways to heal myself from a number of imbalances including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), adult acne, food allergies, chemical allergies, bulimia, hormonal imbalances, insomnia, chronic depression and anxiety.
Over the years, I experienced fatigue, heart palpitations, hypoglycemia, adrenal burnout, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), chronic yeast infections, constipation, UTIs, Baker’s cysts, viral autoimmune and parasitic infection. It literally felt like I had everything wrong with me.
I also had a lot of built up emotions from growing up in a toxic household. On top of that I was a deeply empathic child, very sensitive to energy and was overwhelmed by the ability to sense the emotions of everyone around me. I felt very alone. I was raised atheist, which made it difficult for me to recognize that I could see, hear, and sense both energy and spirits around me. I thought everybody was like this. I didn’t know I was different.
Searching for health answers, emotional balance, and self acceptance lead me to discover my passion for holistic nutrition, herbs, meditation, and my gift as an intuitive energy healer, guide and empath. I accepted the fact that I could see and feel energy, and had a deep connection with Spirit. I stopped hiding my gifts.
By 2014 I was certified as a Reiki Master Practitioner, Master Clairvoyant Reader and Energy Healer. After years of studying natural healing on my own to heal myself, in 2015 I completed my first certification as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Nutrition Response Testing practitioner with the goal of helping others to heal themselves too. I am also happy to announce that in Spring 2020 I completed a M.S. in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.
Today I have the pleasure of working with people of all different ages and walks of life, including both adults and children. Sometimes we are working with the physical body on building health through natural approaches, while other times the sessions stay primarily in the emotional and spiritual realm– cleansing the energy field and nervous system of various past traumas, built up emotions, outdated habits, karma and any negative thought patterns acquired through out the course of our lives and daily interactions.
I also love working with children and teenagers. I always think, “what if I had the coping mechanisms and spiritual tools I have now when I was growing up?”…how much less suffering I might have gone through. This is why it is so important to me to support empathic, sensitive children who are going through periods of sadness, confusion, stress, self hate, anxiety, anger etc. while extending guidance to parents who seek it.
My intention is to provide an integrative approach to healing that supports each person mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We are all complex, multidimensional beings who deserve this type of care on every level in order to feel balanced and whole.
Guest, RILEY SILOS
I am a nineteen-year-old Filipino American musician. A California native, born and raised in Valencia. The Silos name in the Philippines are pioneer filmmakers and composers dating back to the early 1920’s. My parents are both musicians. I grew up surrounded by musicians and the music studios were my playground.
Growing up, my parents exposed me to music, movies and sports. Sports played a big part of my younger years.
Although I focused a lot on sports growing up (10 years of youth hockey and focusing on Olympic recurve archery for the last 5 years) I always turned to music every chance I get.
Currently, I am a member of the Philippine National Olympic Recurve Archery Team. I represent them in all World tournaments. I am scheduled to participate in the Olympic qualifier in France this coming June and compete to get a spot for the Tokyo Olympics.
I am also working on a new music album called, “Infinity, In Between Shots.” I am really proud and excited to share my new work. I feel that my writing is more personal in these new songs.
Right now, my biggest challenge has nothing to do with music. I am in the middle of my second gap year (from the Los Angeles College of Music, in Pasadena) I took a gap year last year to prepare for the 2020 Olympics. Since that was postponed for this year, I have to continue to train for it, and postpone college one more year. Training for the Olympics is a full-time job that really tries a person’s resolve and resilience.
But, even with the Olympics being the main focus right now, I allocate time to attend some online music classes and continue writing songs. I train 6-8 hours a day in archery, 6 days a week; and for all the other time, I am either writing songs, collaborating with other musicians, producing my music, shooting music videos, attending online music theory classes, or working on my piano playing and vocal techniques. It is a hectic schedule, but it is a challenge I willingly take on. I really have a lot of fun doing it!
I am a singer/songwriter who is currently an athlete in training for the Olympics.
For the past two years, I have written, produced and recorded at least twenty-four songs. I also have quite a bit more songs that I have written but not recorded. I also shot and released twelve official music videos (my first video release, “Flyin’” had over 200k views) on my YouTube Channel. www.silos.tv
There’s no better time to be a musician than right now. With technology, anyone who really pursues it, can record and produce their own music. Honing one’s talents is just a click away. There are so many master classes to learn from, mentors to help those who are interested and willing to work. There are so many avenues. My career goal is not just to be a singer/songwriter. One of my goals is to write for other artists. Another goal is to have my music be used in commercials, television or movie soundtracks. The possibilities are limitless.
Riley’s writing partner, Mark Spiro, has represented over 100 million records sold worldwide. He is an established award winning producer, recording artist, and accomplished musician, with a career that spans over two decades. Among his many accomplishments are 45 gold and platinum records, and six solo albums.
He is most recognized as one of the leading melodic rock songwriters in the United States, with songs recorded by such classic artists as Heart, Cheap Trick, Giant, Bad English, John Waite, Kansas, Reo Speedwagon, Winger, Mike Reno (LoverBoy), Julian Lennon, Lita Ford, Giant, David Lee Roth, Rick Springfield, David Cassidy, Terri Nunn, Jane Wiedlin and Steve Perry. In addition, he has written for multi-platinum country artist, Lila McCann, and Latin Artists, Luis Miguel and Emmanuel.
Life Changes Show
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
