The Launch of Ascension Media

To truly understand how science, spirituality and wellness shape The Evolution of Ascension Media, it is best to hear directly from our Founder and CEO, Dr. Denise, MD.

 

Tell us how the term ASCENSION is critical to your vision for your company.

“It’s a thinking and a mindset that in anything we do we achieve the highest level of success.  Ascension is actually it’s own embodiment of a thought process — a way of thinking, always doing better and healing.  Even the word company, those are old words.  Ascension Media is less of a physical place and more of an energy space where you’re sharing with like minds ways that you can inspire one another by working together in a shared mission statement, but also then getting positive messages out to the world.” – Dr. Denise

You are very specific that Ascension Media was “ethereally birthed.”  What does this mean?

“It was really conceptualizing how can I be an influencer to all people on Earth, All Kind, so to speak, in a way that’s genuine and authentic.  I knew the new paradigm is that I do the work.   I show through my actions, my media involvement, my influencing engagements, my product development and the relationships I’ve made that I’m literally being a true influencer, not just based on what society says an influencer is.   I made decisions about my brand, Dr. Denise MD, with intention.  One big important part of my brand strategy was to show by doing, the level of diversity I have — being entertaining at times, being kind of the geek self, the scientific woman, encapsulating, over time, all the dimensions of who I am.” – Dr. Denise

Ascension Media has an Angel Team, that’s pretty unique.

“It’s like an Energy Tribe, Inspirational Team, Earth Angels, Sexy Justice Machines and Wellness Champions all rolled in.  Seriously, to me angels are people who spread light and inspire — they energetically stand in a space of integrity, love, compassion in action and their deeds are an embodiment of their virtues; hence our Angel Team was born.” – Dr. Denise

   As the Founder of Ascension Media, tell us about your vision for      entrepreneurship and social responsibility.

“I believe in leading by example and healing by example.  My Dr. Denise MD brand is engaged in consciousness products.  My Aliki One jewelry emanates ancestral healing while giving back to the Children’s Educational Development Institute, an orphanage I support in India.  Ascension Media will advocate for corporate social responsibility by attracting projects of integrity and win-win solutions for clients who are pro-humanity and social justice for all.” – Dr. Denise

         What will Ascension Media strive to be?

    “We have no time to waste.  Earth is suffering.  Humanity is suffering.  We are at spiritual war  with mindsets of greed, fear-based thinking, hate, rape and prejudice.  What we are striving for is a better Earth, because Earth is suffering.  I know how to teach people, as a doctor, from being suicidal to staying on the planet.  How ASCENSION MEDIA is going to be different is, we will literally help people use their own energy of suffering and use all the gifts of a higher power, God or their own self to go from crisis, to stabilization, to thrive.  Love wins.  Love conquers fear.  Don’t mistake kindness for weakness.” – Dr. Denise

Pandemic Suffering, Integrity and Compassion with Simonetta Lein

Everyone is experiencing their pandemic in their own unique way. 

It is important that we get our information from sources we believe are credible.

We need to think for ourselves, stay mindful, and stay healthy.

The Universal Truths of Awareness, Self Love and Compassion are to be remembered during this unimaginable time.

Meet Transformational Coach and Paralympian James Roberts

What an honor to have this interview with James Roberts!

He continues to go “next level” in every area of his life. I met James on Twitter and had the honor of being on his Mindset Game Podcast in 2017. It is so exciting to hear about what he is up to and how he inspires others to transform their lives and minds with his coaching, knowledge and passion for excellence mind, body, spirit.

Listen here:

James Roberts

I was born with a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia of the left leg; also known as Proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) or as Congenital Femoral Deficiency (CFD), is a rare, non-hereditary birth defect that affects the pelvis, particularly the hip bone, and the proximal femur. The disorder may affect one side or both, with the hip being deformed and the leg shortened. As well as a floating hip and scoliosis of the spine.


Yes, it took longer to learn to crawl, to walk with the aid of an artificial leg that was fixed at the knee and with the support of a zimmer frame at first, and to be able to do things my able-bodied peers took for granted.
I struggled to come to terms with my disability as a teenager, whereby in the hot spring and summer months in high school, I wouldn’t wear shorts. Even though I wore shorts in PE.

It wasn’t until it dawned on me that the only person this was affecting was me, so something had to change.

But in all these circumstances, I found a way, my way of overcoming these hurdles.
I believe it is this mindset that set me up to win in later life and go on to represent my country at 4 World Championships amongst others as well as 2 Paralympics.

I’m a transformation coach by trade, but I was an elite Paralympic athlete for just over a decade.

I started out my sporting career in swimming and was part of British Swimming’s Potential Squad from 2003-05. During that time, I held the SB8 200m breaststroke and 50m breaststroke national records.

After being dropped from the GB swimming programme, I moved on to rowing in 2006. The transition happened fairly quickly as I made my first senior international competition that summer at the 2006 World Championships in Dorney Lake, Great Britain and made the final finishing 6th. 2007 World Championships Semi-Finalist, 2008 Paralympic Finalist (5th) and 2009 World Championships Finalist (5th).

I made another transition of sport, this time to sitting volleyball. From 2010 until 2012, I amassed 56 caps for Great Britain. My first international was a surprise selection to compete at the 2010 World Championships in Edmund, Oklahoma, USA. I was lucky enough that my time with the squad, to have competed for Great Britain at my only European Championships in my repertoire as well as a Continental and Intercontinental Cup. My career culminated at the London 2012 Paralympics were the GB sitting volleyball squad lost in the quarter-final to eventual silver medalist Iran.

We are living at unprecedented times and need resources and hope to deal with the substance use and mental health crisis we are facing as a society.

“COVID-19 has directly claimed tens of thousands of U.S. lives, but conditions stemming from the novel coronavirus — rampant unemployment, isolation and an uncertain future — could lead to 75,000 deaths from drug or alcohol abuse and suicide, new research suggests.” ~CBS News.

It is an honor to interview integrative psychologist, Dr. Janet Cox of Synapse this week so we can tackle this topic head on with hope, compassion and solutions.

  • Principle III:    Substance use disorders impact the entire family. Address the family system so all members can recover.
  • Principle IV:   The treatment of substance use disorders requires a holistic, multi-component, research-based, individualized approach with a strong educational component that addresses the brain, co-occurring disorders, and the family system.
