Episode 67: The Woman who Raised her Parents, herself and Ignited her Flame to a Renewed path of Fulfillment

Guest: Mira Rostami

Mira starts to share her story by pointing out that problems don’t go away, but it is about how an individual chooses to carry them. She delves into her story as a child of deaf parents, immigrating from Iran to Canada, and the identity crisis that she faced along the way. While growing up in Iran, she didn’t have the same opportunities that her peers had. She struggled to share some of her emotional experiences with her parents, communication was limited, and she took on a large parenting role to her parents and became their eyes and ears as their education too was limited given the circumstances in Iran at that time. Mira mentioned that immigrating to Canada was tough, she struggled with new culture and language, which led to depression. She expressed feeling rootless, which created a deep crisis in her life which impacted her health and her relationships. She soon reached a crossroads where she was forced to decide whether to be drowned by her sufferings or to swim to another shore where freedom from fear and suffering was possible. It was during this time that she met Jivasu and began exploring the teachings of Somatofulness. These teachings and meditations provided her with the most authentic path toward living a meaningful life. Living according to her nature has led her to the path of awareness and has moved her toward a more natural way of self. She has now become less bound by fear and sorrow and enjoys a sense of well-being and peace. Her key message to the listeners is that: strike a balance to increase capacity, embrace the unpleasant, only then will you create space and allow the presence of it all to just be without putting yourself in harm’s way; everyone has a story, it’s the blueprint of getting to know yourself, take time to get to know yourself, put your story together, put an end to living someone else’s story, and start owning your own.


Guest Bio: Mira’s spiritual journey began when the war between Iran and Iraq destroyed her hometown. War and destruction left deep fear and anxiety in her. From a very young age, Mira was fascinated with Rumi’s philosophy which left a deep love for wisdom in her heart. Through her own journey, Mira became acquainted with the practice of mindfulness, and now she has been Facilitating meditation for over 18 years in Hamilton, Ontario. Mira’s meditation courses are born out of her intense desire to be a facilitator in creating a great thirst in people and integrating a meditative way of being into their everyday lives.

She was a gifted student throughout her primary and secondary education. After graduating from high school, Mira immigrated to Canada and completed a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education.

Episode 66: She took Hold of her Story, Named it & Reframed it, with Success Written all Over it.

Guest: Melane Mullings

At 17, Melane was hospitalized, fighting leukemia. Through her cancer journey and miraculous recovery, she gained an understanding of her purpose, faith, and the power of a positive mindset, all of which laid the foundation for her business success. She takes the time to delve into the initial career focus starting as a nurse and what prompted her in this endeavour was the substandard emotional care received while she herself was hospitalized. She wanted to ensure that she could positively impact other patients in a similar predicament. She takes time to speak about the backstory of what it took to build her business, during this time, she endured panic attacks, anxiety, bouts of depression, financial distress, and working long hours regularly to meet her goals. She described moments how she soothed her inner child, took time to check in with herself and breathe, and disengage from thought spirals and engage in deliberate relaxation to keep stress levels to a minimum. After navigating a crushing bout of burnout in her late 20s, she took to understanding her purpose, joined it with her faith, and with no business experience or training and minimal capital, she found a way for her business to begin being both impactful and purpose driven. Her key message to the listeners is that: deal with your scars, honour and examine these scars; you are not alone; surrender to the process; know there’s hope; celebrate your wins; operate yourself from a place of purpose and passion.
