How to Protect Yourself from the Negative Frequencies that Bombard Your Body

Ep. 20
If you’ve ever found yourself having brain fog or feeling fatigue, then guess what: it might be possible that the electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) produced by our everyday devices are affecting your health.Unfortunately, these EMFs are everywhere and certain types weaken our immune system, our thought process, our mental clarity, muscle strength – literally everything about us. And the saddest thing is we can’t get rid of them.The good news is that we can protect ourselves from them. Earlier this year, in a previous episode, I’ve mentioned a device that dissipates and even cancels out the negative electromagnetic frequencies – Q-Link – and today, back by popular demand, I’m sharing with you a few more details about it.Listen to Episode 20 of Cure For The Common Life all the way to the end because the company that produces these devices has a surprise for you – and I’m going to share it with you because taking care of your body is not a luxury that only some can afford, but it’s a necessity for all of us!In this episode, you will learn:The story of how a long time ago I got introduced to a device that neutralizes the bad energy that’s around me.

The Skillset That Will Help Your Business Thrive

Ep. 19
We hear so much about the ‘new normal’ without fully acknowledging that when all of this is over, there will still be many side effects that stay with us.When it comes to the power platforms like Zoom have gained, it has been proved to us that geographic limitations are irrelevant when it comes to business, showing us that you can be equally as productive and work as hard from the comfort of your own home.Today, I come to you with what is perhaps the most useful skillset you can learn at the moment to further develop your business capabilities. Learning how to be comfortable speaking to a camera without an audience nor a response is crucial in helping you to do better business and interact better with people.

The Perfect Storm

Ep. 15
The beginning of the biggest storm that has affected the world this year, COVID-19, has proven to be the trigger for the other two massive storms that have gone through the US: the Black Lives Matter movement and the economic crisis.A pandemic that has separated all of us physically, has brought us closer together in learning and fighting against racial injustice, has made us more empathic as the human race, and has taught us that the system that is meant to protect us, does not protect all of us equally.Today, I urge you to become the leader that you have inside of you and to share your knowledge so as to become a beacon of possibility to lead the masses affected by the storm that has hit us. Today, I choose to get political in order to discuss the events that we are currently living, as well as offering some advice on how to properly deal with the consequences once these events disappear.Tune in to Episode 15 of Cure For the Common Life, to learn more about these three storms that have hit the US in 2020 and how to not only survive but thrive when it all comes to an end.In this episode, you will learn:The Perfect Storm that the US is going through right now (04:33)Why COVID is considered the first storm that hit the US and how it could have been prevented.
