Your transformation stationed focuses on thirty day challenges three hour refinement connecting clarity. The idea league live interviews. Investing your time. This is your transformation on how to decode ourselves through the realization of others. A transformative an established our own transformation. I'll have to give a big shoutout to vernon brown out in richmond. Virginia thank you so much for the support. Vernon i do appreciate the kind words for those that have been a subscriber that still continuously stop by. I appreciate every one of you. Today's guests we are featuring. Dr krishna bhatta. He brings a transformative tool for toolbox. This episode teaches us how to learn how to truly be silent and stress relieving benefits. That comes with them. He brings a new lands to the table where we learn about intermittent silence. Now let's get into this weird tapping into surpassing expectations from the most successful people in the modern day and honing in on new foresight methodologies and clairvoyance. You never knew. This is your transformation station with your host. Greg football doctor you there. Yeah i'm here. Okay yes the your background there. Thank you dr. Welcome to your transformation station. Thank you are you doing today. I am doing good was so excited to be here with you. I really do appreciate your time tremendously. I mean going through your work. How did this this. This intermittent silence. How did you come upon this idea in your life's journey. So i've been meditating for the longtime and one of the things in mitigation. Is that the talks. Your mind comes in the way most of the time. that's the main barrier. So how do we put something in our day to live. That can be helpful. And also help you if you want to go in deeper meditation and as i was working on that i found that intermission silence which has its own for components can guy all gonna be a doorway to deeper meditation by itself. It can be very helpful in giving brain some rest and also be applicable in day life. Like if somebody comes to you and say something. You are not compelled to respond immediately. You can have a strategic response. You'll get extra balls where you can think about what to say how respond so. It has some practical advantages and also it becomes doorway to meditation. If you wanted to go deeper. Are you saying self-awareness. As far as being present so self awareness is a little different than being silent so when you are silent. Yes awareness Mindfulness is there. You have to have those otherwise you fall asleep or you know you're not there so those things have to be there but at the same time by being without word sorry final by closing your mouth which is one of the steps in intermittent silence. You are giving that part of brain addressed which got his own with the processing of those words or a making those words happen similarly if you close your eyes visual pathway gets arrest as well so it it does provide an extra step of resting the brain. Would it be like our brains are comparable to computer seventy tabs open and running similar to how we are busy or productive and if we were to close out those tabs we can compare that to closing. Our mouths are is and allowing our brain to essentially. Catch up yeah. I didn't think of that analogy. But that sounds like a good analogy in niches have eighty-six billions of neurons. And many of them if you give them rest there will be thankful to you. What have you noticed from your practice with benefits have you reaped from intermittent silence so intimate silence. Basically you practice ten minutes a day but those ten minutes once you start practicing then he starts coming inside your other. Twenty four hours starts helping you in other parts of your life with this silence than give you that. This mysterious sep personality rather than any who is an open book and it can be a very good tool for you know when you negotiate where you can have your words semi have to speak. Sometimes you don't want to be silent In an interview so that is the role of enola speaking as well but at least you can think about it before. Speaking that little extra apples will give you as a famously. Many people. in many famous people have been people who are silent or or more often more silent than many others being proactive versus reactive Absolutely does but it also as you said. Mindfulness awareness those things. Also become part of it because when you are silent you're more of an observer so you can observe yourself you can observe others and be more mindful. Just add store your general personality and day to day life. We spoken on the phone Last week and i'm having a little trouble still grasping this. Because i get it confused with almost similar to mindfulness practices such as box breathing. That on my own time. There help me do the things that i need to do. And be aware of what's going on from the outside looking in. How can we differentiate between mindfulness and intermittent silence. So mindfulness is part of a new need. You're so mind has two parts. One is minding and the other is mindfulness. At least in my description. That's how i described in my relax at an in my mind. So mine has do components one is minding and the other is the mindfulness. Mindfulness is something that you need and minding is something that you want to give rest to. And how do you give minding. The rest is by just so i said full components. One is a close your mouth. The second one is a close. Your eyes third. One is become a silently sner so any sound that is surrounding. You any sound there is. No sound is a distraction. And you just listened to it without processing it without giving any way to without judging it let it pass through on your thoughts which is part of the minding let it also pass through just be an observer dude so all these four steps of their. Mindfulness is like a camera. Camcorder you can turn only can turn it off so in this ten minutes. Yes you want your mindfulness to be there. So that you record your in something that's watching your silence. Observer is the mindfulness so yes. Mindfulness comes into play. But the silent sparred has those four structured components. Is this practice set up for a specific target audience. I don't know if that is target audience. Because it is going to help all i but i have been working to see if i can get into schools and younger age group as one

of my friends in his a a. Ceo of a construction company. A large construction company. I was talking to him about this and he said wait a minute when we were in school. Sometimes our teachers will come and say put your head down and five minutes of quiet time when they were in school. This is something a little more structured. But that's what it is quiet time with yourself and as if it becomes a component in school system or younger age group you start practicing. You can build your personality. Accordingly and have that silence component in your life. Because most of the time we're very busy you know we are busy either talking to somebody. You're watching movies or with our cellphone. We have stuck at our lives so that science doesn't come into play in most of our lives. I really do agree with you on that. Can we rewind a little bit you were talking about the it's almost like a ripple from this practice as long as we stay consistent and consecutive we can start to see the benefits. What benefits have you seen. So the benefits of course is as we talked about in your responses to emails or conversations. Those are negotiations but the biggest benefit i see is a how you deal with Emotional storms so this is a structured. Like if you're practicing dennis that's wanting you know you have a practice game with your coach share with your friend but when you're going to manage his the totally different situation so the same thing you practice in a controlled environment but when an emotional storm comes like you new become angry oregon new. Become frustated of your down dejected. You can somehow if you practice this for some time. You can have that little separation within your emotions and yourself. You may be able to see that gab. And the moment you see your emotional storms as if you are seeing it from outside somehow it tries to fade away or reduces its bite or sting and sometimes you may want to use anger but then that's a different thing. You're not under the control of anger but you are controlling their anger. Definitely understand you on a very deep level with that. I continuously work and in my own time on my routines do in the morning. When i don't do my routines. I can see and feel a difference in my reactive state when i'm having a conversation with somebody if they say something i don't agree with. It's like an automatic response. No i don't agree. But when i do mindfulness practices i'm able to. I can feel the transparency within my own thoughts kinda like halting means like hold on tried to look at it from their point of view. Because i control my emotions. Can you give our listeners. A snapshot on your history where you grew up and how that lead into the medical field and then how did it lead the medical field lead into the creation of your most recent book. That's been out and your app. So yeah i mean. I grew up in india. Small village and one of the things. Of course you know when we grow up in you want to be something and my mother had this dream. She wanted me to be a doctor and somehow translated into reality. So and i specialize Robotic surgery urology. So i've been in practice for a long time. That said that's the that's the doctor spot. But at the same time. I was very interested from the beginning in spirituality or exploding myself i would say because sometimes spirituality and religion kind of get mixed up but it's more of a explosion deep inside. Why know why do we exist. Or where do we go when we die and these conversations happen many times and we just let it pass. So i didn't even when i was in medical school when i first joined. I was more into meditation. And of course i did the medicine. I did well in that. But i spent a lot of time doing meditation of going to Yeah i met a lot of so-called in spiritual gurus and and learned a lot in doing that in addition like vehic attendees -sconsin with life was good with this time that you spent doing these meditation practices. Was that for your own benefit. Yes and no. I mean i did it because i enjoyed it. But yes it did benefit me One of the things greg. It's hard to prove but if you On to a bath which is like not only meditation but anything you want to do. Good in the world. Somehow the universe kind of aligns to support Ima not that. Obviously because you can't have a side by side comparison. But i totally believe that it does happen so yes. It helped me both sides. That's what i was trying to say. It helped me spiritually but also tell me grow and the good duck. I liked them that the universe just aligns in the way that it's supposed to be if you're consistent with your passions with your desired outcome and a lot of us. We can't really see that unless we look back on it. At least i've noticed that with the average person they can kind of see it from looking back but with people who practice this. Mindfulness intermittent silence. It's like you can almost see the play by play happening in the present moment. Or you're allowed you're able able to detach from your body and kind of see the direction you're going or the direction you could be going. If you stay consistent with these practices. Greg offers very nicely. Put and and new doors. Do and New expediencies do happen. So it's not like there is an endpoint of mindfulness. Or and point of meditation. It depends on which direction of meditation. You are. Taking one of the meditation described in our app. Relax with dwags audio a. lax x. So you can go to a relaxed dot. Org and download the app but one of the mid addition. I really loved an you. Know is a call yoga neutra which is a conscious deep sleep and sounds contradictory. Hoping can be conscious when deep sleep

into that you can use that yoga You can use your slee to brainstorm and some new ideas can come there and so you are sleeping. You sleep is surrounding you. Sleepy startling you all around but You can use your mind to process things. Of course you're not moving not keeping your eyes open but at the same time you can use your brin as you want you can just not do anything or you can think about something and many of my heart things that have come up. Have come up from there. So when would that out with excellent transition. I wanna get to the book here in a second with this app. Are you saying that it helps me sleep and works my brain at the same time. Like q explain. What's plane when i'm in my room. Sleep aram cycle. I should say so. M sleep

and those out the scientific descriptions of sleep nemen remedy non-dane but this one is like there is a practice and there is a whole process in the app so just before they go to sleep. You just switch it on will guide you through. Take your did your sleep and you keep an autumn portion of your awareness. Going with you in the sleep. So then you will certainly see that the amend if you do a practice i mean. It took me a month when i started feeling this. You really go there and the new see the sleep coming and surrounding you clip is not something you can force the on yourself. I mean recreate situation. We lie down comforter on we switch off the light so you create a surrounding. Where sleep happens to you. This women addition happens to you. These things you cannot force on yourself you can just prepare the grounds for you so when the sleep comes it really you can feel the sleep beauty beautiful feeling And if i can get it you can get it so. It's nothing no no magic to it. Here's a question of practicing for certain month of time and dates about the forty five minute meditation. So dick's you tool down there and then you just There and you find that your awareness has now gone deeper so it's not like conscious of conscious and unconscious dick your awareness down there Christine who had level and is still be fresh with the sleep. So it's not like you are disturbing the sleep. You just can experience the sleep that in a way that have never experienced before. That's really interesting it. What's the name of that app called again. The app is relaxed. R. e. it ex and in that there are several meditations. There are many chakra meditation but one of them addition is called a yoga nedra. Uganda dre is basically yogurt sleep. How does that play out. So yeah there is a music ended. It guides you. It takes you through the so you just follow the a date instructions and the music. Just smoke Go with the flow and doing for every night for i'm in you will go to sleep every night right so just before going to sleep. Go with the music woven this meditation and one of the thing about any of these meditations break and on was mentioned this. This is a very old book called gita gita in short and in that book Masks are doomed. that's about five thousand years ago. How do i control my mind in. This mind is always wavering. And going on blesses and his answer was so beautiful. I love that answer is as practice are in practice so is nothing better than practice annoys like we've practiced and i always say tennis golf to be good. Same way you practice meditation to get to where you want to an all. You will always expedient something new and something deeper one of the mistakes. That happens good in meditation. And i'm sure in. Mindfulness is like

back. You want that to happen again. Somehow the mody wanted the less. It's likely to happen so just let new experienced as gum for those. That have trouble sleeping. I'm guilty of that. I'm trying to get back on my routine in some tau sidetracked. Or i think i might stay up twenty four hours to catch up my work when reality. That isn't going to do any good but do more harm. Would that help me get back on track. Yes yes it will with a little point that i want mention here that it basically improves the quality. Sleep not the quantity of sleep. The when you do a lot of meditation you may not sleep or may not need that many hours of sleep but what you get is complete election refreshing life before and after so I won't say that you will sleep longer but whatever your sleep. Quality will be really amazing with the practice. Is there a right way to practice. I guess that's kind of like a kind of a loaded in here. That is a many meditations one thing. I believe that you should have a meditation package. Like if you do practice a yoga practice for two or three months Because that's one thing but in the morning you can have another meditation. Lake murray's amid edition. They're called power chakra. So i'm the first one. As far as i know who has taken mantras and put associated with jukka so this power soccer meditation do it at night because that might you may not sleep well because it creates so much an energy but yeah you can do power chakra in the morning. You can do yoga there at night or you can do mindfulness In in the morning for ten minutes and all these meditations or mindfulness practice or intermittent silence. You do it for short intervals but their effect class. No maybe holiday or a week but you still need to practice to stay Really the funny thing. Is that once you start doing it kind of becomes addicted. I have been meditating and end. All i love that and i keep doing it. That brings me to. My next question is far as somebody who doesn't practice this way of fitness. I'll say what the fitness it's a mental consistency but is intermittent silence a rigid theory or data to back up. Its claims so. Intermittent silence is a new terminology. I started so there may not be a lot of data based on intermittent silence but there is a lot of work done on silence excel and that silence was not that structured. So yes i mean if you google silence. That is a lot of videos and articles on that intimating. Silence should not be much different. Because it's a more structured way off Practicing silence you said structure. I think that's very important way of thinking when it just comes down to personal development within mindfulness with intermittent silence within physical fitness during a workout. If you structure the the application it can be very beneficial true. That is another way to look at it. All these things that we talk about like silence or being proactive responding properly can be taught adopt to us and our mind will learn by discipline. And that's what we do. Many courses there are many courses. Are there how to be successful. And they are five points ten points that we all learn. So what is the difference of. Why should we do. Intermittent silence of meditation or mindfulness. So the differences. Here i can be silent. I can impose silence on new man myself. Suppose we are talking about silence. So i can read about silence. I can practice silence. I can just begun that. But what intermittent islands or meditation will do is that it will grow from inside so it's no molding boost silence now silence growth from within so there are people who are successful and they have never practiced intermittent silence meditation but they have learned or change their mind to be the same by imposing on on themselves is he. The difference i'm saying is that they gotten successful through their actions through their hard work but sacrificed their own the battalion or well beat their wellbeing of that success. They got everything they wanted. They're just not happy inside because it didn't grow with them imposed don themselves so there is some sort of kind of you know Brescia they put on themselves to get to where they were The ab he talks about the app talks about it. And i generally talk about that. We are most people talk about body and mind. There is another component which i called the flame the flame of consciousness. We all have a body and mind an individual consciousness not the general cosmic consciousness but we all have individual consciousness so these three elements we focus on body and mind we ignore the flame of consciousness. Some of us born with a higher flame of consciousness and don't burn out but there are people who don't have that same level of consciousness and that don't work on it but they have worked tremendously or high amount for the body and mind which has brought the sexist to them but they're flame has been left behind. And that's what you are saying that that person is out of synch. Very well put and interest is from your writing. I came across your book and it really grabs my attention journey from life to life. No this part is not mentioned in journey from left life entities in the app and i have a new book coming out which is heart of intermittent silence and meditation. So that's going to go. You know many of these things in that. I'll be sure to link all everything that you've spoken about in the show notes for our audience to be able to click the link to thank you greg. Thanks giving me this platform. So is there any steps that we can start applying intermittent silence to our daily life for those that are non believers than those. Who are the innovators that love to eat this stuff up. That loved that that one percent change in their overall wellbeing so for believers and non-believers have only one simple advice their mind beef rams to your mind because mind is going to be with you whether you like it or not. Don't call it names

because whatever you want to do mind has to agree. I it has to do. You know it has to give you the permission that okay. Now you can go and meditate of now you can go and practice intervention silence but you can go and eat good food so be friends with mind. Don't think of mind as adversary which many of us have start thinking. Ah dimes done. Is there any general guidelines that we can give our listeners so they can start this process of adding intermittent silence into their lives. Yeah i mean you can add intermission. Silence in many spaces in like a flying. I mean gobert times. We are not lying so he are flying year than the plane. Ten minutes you can put the timer on in relax app and it will guide you through the ten minutes. You are waiting on the airport coming. You can just close your eyes and be mindful about it. I like to do it. When i'm hiking or if i'm going to to the ghost of maine find a bench other all can lie down ten minutes and there's a little timer on ten minutes of silence listen to the debris. The leaves rustling the birds chirping Waves crashing and those sounds really. The nature sounds help. You go deep buddy noting Science are you an outside. Kind of person dr i love to. I love hiking. i love. I my bad golfer but i love golf. I the reason why ass. I came across one of your videos. You were giving to a class and a caught my attention when i believe this is the first time you came to missouri was on your honeymoon and you happen to stop by this park and is just kind of funny. 'cause it's like like of all places that's were grew up and that's where i currently live so that is there a different massoudi in india. Oh wow is the hili station. That was my honeymoon. Let's uri here out but yeah that was a. Yeah yeah we love. That place is still go back sometimes. Excellent i really do like that. But as we begin to close could you prescribe some good advice for our listeners to start implementing today. Well you know. Try to make it simple that way. That's my advice so if you are a practicing intermittent silence you can do it. as we talked about you know different spaces You want to do it in for mindfulness. do it. Right in the morning when you wake up in just ten minutes live life in slow motion. But it's always good to do any of these breakfast same time. Same place and sam duration because somehow that plays and dime starts waiting for you start feeling that that annoys calling happening from within as a fan of the time place in space it starts working with you and you become just become part of the whole universe rather than just be an isolated island sometimes. I like being an isolation i tend. Introverts i've always noticed myself kind of fading into the distance from crowds. Because i like that piece. I don't like to be around. Chaos so introvert is okay but introvert can still be part of the universe other than an island. So i didn't mean the part of the universe is like you have to outgoing. You have to socialize. You have to go party. You can be with yourself but detainees the the wind the sound just expand your be your inner self to fill the room or fill the house or fill the whole entire surrounding. You see what i'm saying. Yes introvert but still. You are not as small injured in. I like the no allowing yourself to be yourself and embracing your vulnerabilities as your authentic self. That's that's a beautiful way to put it. Yeah thank you a weird question. A ronin statement there roughly eight billion people on this planet if you had a chance to connect with them out of those people people who are capable of getting an email and responding what would you send to. Each one of those individuals spent some time with yourself and that could be intermittent silence. That could be mindfulness. That could be meditation but get into the habit of spending that five minutes or ten minutes a day with yourself. Be an introvert for ten minutes. In and as somehow it's going to transform your life. I like them for our listeners. How can they get in touch with you. And where can they find this app and learn more about your upcoming books so on my website. Relax with two x x x dot.
