EP108: Escape the Human Zoo with Michelle Norris

I am thrilled to share this interview with Paleo f(x) founder Michelle Norris which yields a whopping 14 mantras to support your wellness and life.

We walk through the important lessons of Michelle’s role as a Mama Bear for her own family as well as her company and event, Paleo f(x).

Michelle is a former corporate warrior, trained chef, and multi-potentialite whose personal health issues and struggles with traditional medicine inspired her to upend the way the world tackles health, wellness, and prosperity. Enjoy the show and these amazing mantras:

Mantra #1:  Embrace your authentic feminine Goddess aspects (nurturing, vulnerability, receptivity, etc.) to achieve greater success in business and life.

Mantra #2: Responding is different than reacting. Reacting is when you are unable to hear/listen to the story and the other person’s point of view.

We talked about a model that suggests that “action” is about recognizing when you are in reaction. You can then move to interaction and proaction in order to co-create for the better good of all.

Mantra #3: We can only control our response- everything else is uncertain.

Mantra #4: Influence is different than control (and influence is superior to control as there is really no such thing as control).

Mantra #5: Triggered moments are the best times to keep one’s mouth shut.

Mantra #6: When you are triggered by someone else, try the mirroring exercise from Primal Uprising.
Michelle Norris describes the Mirroring Exercise:

Mantra #7: Escaping the zoo is all about keeping an open mind, asking questions, and avoiding fear and polarization.
Michelle Norris on Escaping the Human Zoo:

The Primal Uprising Litmus Test questions and the end of each chapter provide provocative questions to help you explore a path to escape the constructs of the Human Zoo.

Mantra #8: Each person is sovereign.

Mantra #9: Programming starts in childhood and is maintained by fear and polarization.

We talked about a conversation between Harry Massey of NES and Dr. Bruce Lipton and the influence of theta brain states (suggestibility of childhood and how we are programmed. This interview also talks about how we can interrupt the program to pursue our desires and dreams.

Mantra #10: Find a tribe that will challenge you with an open mind and will hold you accountable for progress.

We talked about the difference between the url (online connection) vs. the “irl” (In Real Person).

    1. Physical health
    2. Mental health
    3. Emotional health
    4. Spiritual health

More about Michelle Norris

Michelle is a former corporate warrior, trained chef, and multi-potentialite whose personal health issues and struggles with traditional medical orthodoxy inspired her to upend the way the world tackles health, wellness, and prosperity.

She soon became one of Paleo’s most outspoken evangelists, then co-founded and is now CEO of Paleo f(x)TM, the largest Paleo event in the world. She’s a passionate speaker, motivator, and guiding light to those seeking deliverance from a broken healthcare system and disabled economic system. 

Having left the corporate grind far behind, she is now a serial entrepreneur in the health and wellness space, and a tireless firebrand for advancing the Paleo movement; a cultural reawakening of self-empowerment for the 21st century. Having survived the death of her 22-year-old daughter, Michelle knows what it’s like to fight back from an overwhelming loss. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, she used the tragedy as a catalyst for her to “put up or shut up”, and follow through with her vision of leaving the economic status quo behind, and becoming a self-made entrepreneur. All this, at the pit of the housing market crash of 2008. Her belief, you can always find beauty among the ashes.

What’s fun for Michelle:

Helping someone find the keys to their cell door and get free of their imprisonment in the Human Zoo and empowering people to take back their personal sovereignty.
