Bio: Namaste, my name is Colwyn, it means flowing river in Welsh, I am a contemporary Mystic Sage who has been on a spiritual journey my whole life. Recently I returned from the mountains of Sedona, where I fasted, prayed, and meditated for 40 days and 40 nights alone. I was called by Creating so that I could diminish my ego because of this I now may be in service to others on their journey. My sharing is on peace, compassion, love, and joy and navigating a world filled with ego, and fear. Years ago, the opposite of peace would be war, today the opposite of peace is business. Let us work together to help others learn to release their ego, pain, and suffering and learn needed lessons while they are on this amazing human journey. Then we can learn and return to the Creating of all things as spirits instead of mere humans.
Possible interview questions:
1) Why this journey?
2) What did you take with you up the mountain?

Bio: Hi, my name is LockMarie I recently resigned from The Los Angeles Superior Court as a Judicial Assistant – working in the court system for 24 years total. I am also a writer and Published author with over 25 books on amazon.
I love to inspire, help and coach girls and women of all ages no matter how old, and let them know weight loss is possible. I also like to help anyone with a story and ready to write or publish their first book. I did all mine on my own and did not cost a thing. www.amazon.com/author/lockmarie.
Now at age 47 I am going strong on my weight loss maintenance journey- Over 10 years ago I was sick and tired of being tired of the body I was in. My running joke is that I first got rid of 200 or more pounds of a man, and the rest was easy, ha.
Just a recap of my story; in 2008 I had my son and was between 200-230 lbs. Before I had my son, I was 98lbs wet, so this was very traumatic for me especially only being 4 foot 11.
In October of 2010 I had had enough of all the “drama & weights of my life”.
I got a trainer and made up my mind and I lost over 65lbs in less than 3 months. I went from sizes 2X tops to size Small/XS, and size 16-20 W pants to size 0, 2, 4, 6 pants.
It is now 2021 and I have never looked back nor regretted the new me. From then to now I would join various programs and nutrition plans to keep myself accountable and focused during the times in life when it is so easy to get distracted. In 2020 I discontinued all my gym memberships. I have not attended a gym outside my home since 2019.
As of 2021 I am currently still wearing the same small sizes and I want to inspire other women (no matter how old they are or what they have dealt with in life), to be their best self and understand it is okay to be selfish enough to take care of yourself first.
Today as I write this info on March 22, 2021, I am 47 years young at the weight of 127 lbs (4 foot 11 inches) healthy and proud. It is important to me, to be my best self and be a visual to other women that they can also accomplish and maintain their weight lost goals too. Let me be your guide to your solution.
I am now pursuing my passions and I will say, I have many. A few are I am a Certified Confidence, Health/Wellness Coach and weight loss expert. I am currently getting my certification as an Intermittent/ Keto Specialist Coach, Life Coach and Mind set coach because it all ties in. I have personal experience with weight issues, and I learned and did it the hard way, so I can now assist ladies, so they do not have to. You have the problem, and I am your solution.
I also have an amazing story of how in 2012 at the age of 39 I found out I had a sister I had no idea existed. We met and it was amazing. I have it all on video and I love sharing the experience of how I found out about her and then did my own investigation until I found her after being told by one of her family members that they would not assist me as to not “disrupt her life”. I did not stop until I found her and it has been pure bliss ever since.
Possible interview questions:
1) What is your life mission or goal?
2) Why do you feel other women can not lose the weight, or if they lose it, can\’t keep it off?
3) What tips would you give another woman trying to lose weight?
4) How did you start your writing journey? when did you begin?
5) What made you want to publish books?
6) Do you have any favorite authors that inspired you to write/publish?
7) What advice would you give someone who wants to write a book but does not know where to start?
8) How did you find out you had a sister?
9) How did it feel to find out as a grown woman that you missed out on your sisters life and her yours?
10) How did you go about finding her?
I am open to other questions also.. I love to talk 🙂

Guest Website URL: www.experiencejoy.com
Bio: IT IS POSSIBLE TO EXPERIENCE JOY REGARDLESS OF CIRCUMSTANCE. I AM LIVING PROOF, AND I TEACH WHAT I LIVE.
The first time I died I was 15 years old. I flew off a cliff on a motorbike and was declared dead on the operating table for two and a half minutes. I had the whole NDE before it was fashionable. I have no fear of Death. Back in ICU I was told I’d never walk again, my doctor wanted to amputate my leg. I told him I’d not only walk, I’d dance on his grave. Within seven years I was a medal-winning ballroom dancer I overcame a pain killer addiction – after my 2nd overdose. I become a highly successful top level business executive in New Zealand.
I HAD A COUPLE OF GREAT YEARS, AND CONVINCED MY HUSBAND TO EXPAND INTO AUSTRALIA. WE MOVED INTO A FABULOUS APARTMENT IN ELIZABETH BAY IN SYDNEY, JUST IN TIME TO WATCH THE SYDNEY TO HOBART YACHT RACE FROM OUR BALCONY.
A couple of months later, at 24 years old, I was hit by a drunk driver. The spinal injuries I had suffered in the motorbike accident were reactivated. I couldn’t speak without stuttering, walk or stand for more than a few minutes and I had lost 70% of the strength in the left side of my body.The biggest challenge was when I became stressed, the soft tissue would swell at the back of my neck, preventing blood from going to my forebrain. I would have about 3 minutes before I blacked out. It was a stressful time, I was blacking out several times a day at one point. I never knew whether I would wake up from a blackout. Oxygen deprivation from each blackout caused an oxidative stress wall in my forebrain. After a couple of years of intermittent oxygen deprivation, my frontal lobes scanned like an autistic child. I had increasingly limited access to thinking forward or remembering back. Doctors said I would be dead or vegetative before age 30.
FOR THE NEXT 18 MONTHS I WALKED WITH DEATH AS A CONSTANT COMPANION. HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE, AND GUIDED ME IN HOW I WANT TO SHOW UP IN THE WORLD. I BECAME AN EXPERT ON CLEARING STRESS IN 3 MINUTES OR LESS. THE WESTERN MEDICAL PROFESSION GAVE UP ON ME.
I began studying alternative, healing methods. I am certified in more than a dozen different holistic health modalities  As I journeyed through each, I uncovered amazing skills and tools that enabled me to take back control of my life. With each new modality I grew stronger. I learned things like how to keep a clear head no matter what’s going on, and how to dissolve emotional trauma easily and painlessly. How to understand my body and the messages it sends, and how to treat my brain like a bio-organic super computer. Instead of being brain dead at 30, I had learned how to reprogram the neurological pathways of my brain by THINKING NEW THOUGHTS. In doing so I was able to bypass the brain injuries and access different parts of my brain,
GENERATING UNCOMMON NEW PERSPECTIVES, AND ABILITIES. BY AGE 30 I HAD CO-CREATED AUSTRALIA’S FIRST COMPUTER SOFTWARE SUPPORT ORGANIZATION. I WAS THE FIRST INDIVIDUAL EVER TO BE NOMINATED FOR AN IT&T AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT. THE FIRST WOMAN TO SIT ON THE BOARD OF THE QUEENSLAND BRANCH OF THE AUSTRALIAN INFORMATION INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION.
I became an advisor to both State and Federal Government after single-handedly co-opting the unanimous support of every major computer organization in the country. She developed an established an end-user support traineeship that introduced an entirely new, much-needed path within the IT Industry which created thousands of jobs at the level where they were most needed’ – quote from Connecting Queensland Magazine. We started that company with a $30 government cheque that bounced.
MY FORMAL EDUCATION ENDED WITH THE BIKE ACCIDENT AT 15. I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT COMPUTERS TO THIS DAY. MY BOOK ‘NO WORRIES, MATE!’  DETAILS THE ‘DE-WORRYING PROCESS’ I USED TO ACHIEVE THESE BUSINESS SUCCESSES AND STAY SANE IN THE MIDST OF THE CONTINUED GRAND ADVENTURE THAT IS MY LIFE.
At 34 I lost everything for a third time. I went from top of the ladder, to a single Mother on welfare, in a year.
FIVE YEARS LATER I WAS A MEMBER OF THE AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATION OF ACCREDITED ALTERNATIVE & NATURAL THERAPISTS – AAANT. I WAS HEALING MYSELF, AND TEACHING OTHERS HOW TO DO THE SAME.
I re-created myself as JOY to remind myself of what I chose to embody. My passion became psychoneuroimmunology: How the way we think affects our physical health and well being. I began a healing and metaphysical practice.
IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM I RECEIVED A SPIRITUAL CALLING TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, TEACHING THE BEST OF WHAT I HAD LEARNED. MY PASSION FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS HAS BEEN COLLECTING ‘EMPOWERMENT TOOLS’: SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES TO LIVE MORE JOYFULLY AND LESS STRESSFULLY IN 3 MINUTES OR LESS, AND HOW TO EXPERIENCE JOY REGARDLESS OF CIRCUMSTANCE
Everything I teach is RAD; Replicable Applicable Demonstrable – each emPOWERment tool is demonstrably applicable providing positive benefit in a repeatable way in 3 minutes or less. Sharing what I learned with you is what makes my crazy life make sense.
Possible interview questions:
How did you become a world expert on clearing stress in 3 minutes or less?
How do you reprogram your brain for Optimal Levels of Productivity and Joy?
You’ve physically died multiple times, what was that like, what did you learn, How did that change your life?

Guest Website URL: www.fshsociety.org
Bio: I am a podcaster for the show FSH Society Radio. What is the FSH Society you ask? The FSH Society is the world’s largest grassroots network of patients, families, clinicians, researchers and friends advocating for FSH muscular dystrophy. This is a cause that means a lot to me because I have FSH muscular dystrophy. Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is a heritable muscle disease, often called FSH or FSHD. Progressive weakening and loss of skeletal muscle are its major effects. It has significant medical and health impacts on individuals, families, and society. FSHD is among the most common forms of muscular dystrophy, affecting children and adults of both sexes. The cardinal feature of FSHD is the progressive loss of muscle strength. The disease’s name comes from the typical pattern of weakness at onset: the face (facio), shoulder girdle (scapulo), and upper arms (humeral).
I was diagnosed a year ago but I always new that there was something wrong. When I was younger I could do the push-ups like other kids. I had less strength. As I got older I had mobility issues with my arms. I thought that is just how I am. I always compensated. Until I couldn’t. I noticed pain when I played catch with my sons and thought there is something going on. Three doctors later I had my answer.
FSHD has no cure, no treatment. It is life shortening. It will effect me more and more. I decided that even before I was diagnosed I would do something to join the fight. So when the answer to what I had was FSH I joined the FSH Society and pitched the idea to there board to create a podcast. So that is my mission now to advocate and educate. I hope I can share this story on your show.

What is FSH?
When where you diagnosed?
How did you get involved with the FSH Society?
