Let’s Discuss Mindful Profanity!

Our words, thoughts and actions carry a vibrational frequency.

Choose wisely!

Repost 8/9/19

In my blog post entitled “Be Empowered! Our Words, Thoughts and Actions Matter” I discussed the power of words and how one FEELS when we use different words.

I wanted to share how I talk about the topic of profanity in my office as well as how I handle this topic in my own home.

Listen here:


In the show I mention that I love data and I appreciate this article in Quartz entitled, “A linguist’s love letter to profanity explains why it’s fine to curse around kids.” The article goes on to talk about UC SanDiego Professor of Cognitive Science, Benjamin Bergen’s scientific findings that he includes in “What the F: What Swearing Reveals About our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves.”

When you read the article Professor Bergen explains that data is lacking on this topic as it is not easy to get parental consent for a controlled study exposing children to profanity.

“As for everyday four-letter words, there’s no scientific proof that exposing children to “ordinary profanity-four-letter words-causes any sort of direct harm: no increased aggression, stunted vocabulary, numbed emotions or anything else,” writes Bergen.

We need to remember that the words we choose are surrounded around by a context of circumstances in any situation.

A shout out expletive while being cut off in traffic can impulsively just happen, that is how my son learned the F Bomb from me.

Everything in life is an experience

We have daily opportunities to reflect, to teach, and to engage in discussion with our children about the quantity, quality and context in which words are used. 

 This is part of mindful parenting.

I brought up my 2018 fraud inspired  “Don’t Fuck With My Kindness”  mantra in the show. It is a phrase that you do not even need to say out loud, you can just choose to think it to yourself.

Creating your own mantra can serve as an emotional release of anger, fear, betrayal and can then be alchemized into “compassion in action” towards yourself or others in real time.

You can use the power and energy of any situation to “level up” and this may include or not include profanity.

“Be Loving. Be Kind!” Is my daily no profanity mantra that keeps me in the space of grace.

I reserve the use of the F-Bomb for specific occasions to allow a release of an intense emotion. I discuss this in my office, on my show and in my home. 


Our words, thoughts and actions are powerful. Being aware in the moment of the words we choose is a game changer. Choose wisely and with discernment.

Love IS the Legacy, The Golden Thread

Our words, thoughts and actions carry a powerful vibrational frequency that allow the highest level of mind, body and soul health.

I am in the space of reverent gratitude as G. Beverly Bergmann joins me as a cohost of The Golden Thread series.

As we are in the midst of the holiday season Bev and I discuss nostalgia, health, loss, and sacred remembrance of our ancestors with US in Spirit.

What does the GOLDEN THREAD mean to you?

What is your legacy of love?

G. Beverly Bergmann 

Legacy of Love Ambassador

Children’s champion, multigenerational philanthropist, consciousness author and wife of visionary and television pioneer Ted Bergmann.

Beverly has a passion for Teddy Bears, in all sizes, and actually has the moniker of “Bear Lady” to several hospitals within the area where she has donated plush toys for many years to the children who are hospitalized, especially during the holidays. She realized how important this was due to her own son’s experience through multiple hospitalizations with his medical condition. To further facilitate the importance of this caring connection and outreach, she co-founded with a dear friend the “Holiday Wish List Toy Drive” at SHARE, Inc., a charity she is involved with and assists in raising funds for developmentally disabled, abused and neglected children as well as medical research for all forms of developmental disabilities.

Reclaiming the Sacred by Jeff Golden, Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond

I AM grateful beyond words for this interview with author Jeff Golden.

I love the science meets spirit meets psychology integration of content that is academic, personal and inspirational in his prolific masterpiece Reclaiming the Sacred Healing Our Relationships with Ourselves and the World.

It was birthed after a reverent twelve year gestational period and is the grand prize winner Nautilus Book Awards.

“Drawing on the work of thousands of psychologists and economists, cosmologists and activists, saints and poets, Reclaiming the Sacred grounds us in our inherent joy, purpose and belonging, both for our own sakes and the sakes of all the people, plants, and creatures here with us.” -Jeff

Did you know that only 2-4% of our happiness is our material wealth? Mythbusting facts, statements and discussions are eloquently interwoven throughout the pages in a way that invites the reader to go on a journey of wondrous self reflection.

Jeff and I do a deep dive on the book with vulnerable shares and invite you to join us and think about what reclaiming your sacred means for you.

Listen here:


Jeff Golden has been teaching and writing about these topics for over thirty years, most recently at Vassar College. He was a Fulbright Scholar in sustainable development and a recipient of the State Department’s Millennium International Volunteer Award. He is a prison reform and animal rights activist, and has headed several nonprofits promoting social justice, sustainability, and international education. A native of Idaho, he resides in the Mohicanituk Valley in New York, with his children, the river, and the stars.
