Listen To Episode 421 As Josh Trent Uncovers:
[00:00] Our Spiritual
Hey, it's Josh from Wellness Force. This is a really
special Solocast. It's been a long time. And the Solocast is really
an art form that I think we all can practice, but today I want to
give a different kind of practice to the world, to your
consciousness specifically. Many of the concepts we explore on
Wellness Force take us between physical and emotional
But as you know, in the background, there was always
spiritual intelligence that runs
all things. This Solocast I actually recorded in a little hand
recorder earlier this year, before the birth of my son. I was out
at Tim's event, Tim Corcoran, who is the CEO, the
founder of Purpose Mountain. Make sure you could listen to that
podcast. If you haven't heard it, it is amazing for any men that
want to become fathers or father the young man inside of
[00:52] Break Out
of the Sedation
And what you're about to hear was actually dictated
from a hand recorder when I was coming off the hill, when I was
getting all these beautiful reflections, purely in the potent
medicine of mother nature, and it was about our sedation. One of
the things I found in 100 hours of being completely in nature,
immersed with no food, only water, no fire, no knife, no
protection, no cell phone, no other human beings. Literally my
breath, water, a sleeping bag,
and a tarp.
It was incredible. And I'm going to share this with
you. I hope that this medicine reaches you wherever you are,
whatever phase you're in, whatever growth potential you're leaning
into. My belief is that if you slow down and you breathe and you
take in this
medicine of really the Solocast
for us all, that you can break out of the sedation we're in. Our
society is set up to sedate us.
And so let's begin. In this podcast, you're going to
learn about our sedation tools that we all have to fight against
and be aware of. We'll talk about food. We'll talk about
media. Then we'll talk about
your own thoughts. We'll talk about freedom and we'll explore the
difference between pure disease and pure health. If you yourself
have dealt with addiction of any kind or disassociation or anxiety
or depression, this podcast is
perfect for you.
Solocast society sedation. Our society is set up to
sedate us. This is not a conspiracy theory. Everything in the truth
is out in plain sight. Look at the food, media, current events,
even the general narrative and consensus in most communities is
negative. And you'll find that everything is about keeping you safe
and playing it nice and cozy, but safe, nice, and cozy does not
live on the edge of juiciness. Does not live on the edge of what
life really is.
[02:52] Sedation in Modern Society
Yes, there are times where we do need to be sedated,
like if we've had a
traumatic event or if we've
worked our butt off and gotten super sweaty and we've earned our
relaxation. We just need to chill. Yes. Being sedated is okay at
times. I'm an advocate for conscious rest, but not as a pulse of
life, not as a heartbeat of our existence. Let's explore the
factors of sedation in our modern society. As we begin with food,
understand that food keeps us sedated by tons of calories with no
nutrients, plain simple facts.
Sedation occurs when people consume too many calories
and they gain too much weight. Now there's a huge backstory
psychosomatic and emotionally
intelligence based that attaches to that. We'll save that for
another show, but essentially what happens food is that if we take
in too many calories, and those calories are void and empty of any
kind of micronutrients, just because something's fat, protein, and
carbs, doesn't always mean it's real food.
Palette of Human Emotions
If you look at the amount of money that is spent
literally in the billions, with a big ass B, by
behavioral scientists, you
actually study the palette of human emotions if you're a behavioral
scientist for Kraft foods, for Burger King, for McDonald's, and you
get the inflection point of the perfect amount of sweetness. This
is how people become addicted. This is the sedation tool
that is called soda. It's called the bliss point.
Did you know one of the ways that big foods sedates
us, if we allow them to, is this bliss point? Did you even know
that the bliss point exists? Where if it's one degree sweeter, you
won't drink it, but if it's one degree not as sweet, you won't
drink it either. There's a perfect Goldilocks point that all
chemists for Dr. Pepper, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, all these big
companies with their labels on trucks flying all over America.
[04:42] Enslaving the Population
They literally pay billions of dollars over the
course of decades, and they spend a billion dollars a year on other
marketing. But if you add it up with the salary, the research and
development, everything that goes into basically being a slave,
scientists who know that they're enslaving the population for
diabetes, for leptin resistance, for
extra ghrelin, they're doing it for money.
Can you imagine, can you truly imagine going to bed
at night being one of these behavioral psychologists, behavioral
scientists, really they're scientists, not psychologists. You're
one of these people who literally it's your job to addict people to
soda and addict people to
junk food. Now, this isn't about
judgment, but seriously, can you think about that? Can you imagine
going to bed knowing that your work and how you get paid is to find
the bliss point that's going to make people fat and die earlier.
[05:36] The Global
Spread of Bad Habits
Whoa. and I really do say that without judgment. It's
more just, Hey, what are you doing? So I digress, let's get back to
it. Essentially, when we look at the topic of sedation in
food and beverage, specifically,
whether it's soda or Jimmy Dean sausages, or frozen foods, you ever
go into a grocery store and you look down the aisle and you see
this absolute Mecca of food.
There's angels and junk food playing harps with
little Ding Dongs. And you wonder to yourself who is eating this
shit? Well, look at the research. A lot of Americans are, and it's
even worse in other countries because our
habits are bleeding over there.
So this is what happens on a mental level. As you are trained from
childhood to start eating these foods that are void of nutrients,
the brain actually gets starved of calories and nutrients that it
[06:26] What Even
is Real Food?
It doesn't get its healthy fats like avocados. It
doesn't get its fish oils like the omega-3s. This is what gets us
to where we are, whether it's food or beverage or snacks, all of
these for foods, if you flip the panel over and you look at the
ingredient list, this is a queue. If it has more than a handful
ingredients or you look at those
ingredients and you don't exactly know what it means are the worst
one, if you look at the ingredients and it says natural flavors,
look the hell out because it is not a real food.
This is a food substitute designed by commerce to
keep you sedated. Now, this might seem a little jarring if you're
hearing it for the first time, but it keeps you sedated. These
foods that are in the
GRAS list, G-R-A-S. Search on
DuckDuckGo for G-R-A-S.
[07:13] The GRAS List
That's generally regarded as safe. These
additives turn your brain power
down by adding fat to your body, making you feel sluggish and
tired. Well I say, hell no. Hell no. Are you with me? Not for me.
Not for you. You can take your sedation tools and put them
somewhere else, Pepsi, Coke, Jimmy Dean, KFO, meat and chicken raised with animals and
poultry standing in their own feces.
The list goes on and on. And so that's the first
piece. And there could be an entire discussion on that, but you
already know this. If you've listened to the Wellness Force
podcast, one or multiple times, you can see that there is a lot of
behind the scenes going on with pretty bows and packages that make
people purchase products, which is essentially like buying pigs
by News Media
So now that you understand what's really going on
with food, you can go to wellnessforce.com and search food or
real food. We have a search bar
on the homepage. Start learning more about how to protect yourself
from the way that society tries to sedate you with food. It's much,
much more than just what you're putting in your mouth.
Now let's move on to the second piece of how society
is designed to sedate men and women. And that is the
news media. Now this is huge
because the news media has a narrative that works to sedate us
24/7/365. And it does it by the vehicle of fear. And fear is really
false evidence appearing real. Think about that. If it's false, if
it's evident, the news media can make it appear real. And by they,
I mean Rupert Murdoch and the six companies that run the entire
media network for the entire United States and the world. You can
[ 08:57] Breaking Down the Mainstream
This is not conspiracy theory. Here's what happens.
And I'm sure you're already feeling it or maybe you sent this to
somebody who's already felt it and that's why you're here with us.
But there are people that as soon as they find out, there's a
narrative like this, that goes against the
mainstream narrative, they like
to label you and I, "conspiracy theorists."
I say that with huge air quotes, but it's not a
conspiracy theory. It's right out there. Do that basic DuckDuckGo
search or Brave. And you will see that the media, the global media
is run by six oligopolies, six conglomerates who all get paid
billions and billions of dollars every single year in advertising
fees. And you won't have to guess too far to know who their largest
client is. It's big food and
big pharma. It doesn't come as a
[09:46] Selling the Solution to All Your
I think we all feel this on some level, but when you
see what Joe Rogan is posting recently on Instagram, where Pfizer
was the main prime sponsor on the majority of MSNBC, CNBC, all the
different sporting events brought to you by Pfizer. Can you guys
connect the dots? Look, I'm not here to say you should not ever
have intervention from pharmacology.
Even life insurance, right? I'm not here to say that
that insurance is bad or we don't need to demonize entire
industries. But I think everything has a time and a place. With
your heart and with your
intuition, notice that baked into every single
commercial and every single piece of media propaganda out there, it is for
you to be afraid. But what I have to sell you as a pharmaceutical
company or an insurance company, it's the solution to all your
fears, isn't it? Look at Viagra.
[10:38] Hospitals Are a For-Profit
Oh, you're going to break up with your wife. No, just
take this pill. Look at car insurance. Save a bundle with Geico,
the little lizard that tries to make you buy insurance. And then of
course, when they get you on the phone, they're actually going to
upsell you for insurance that you don't need. But the worst of them
Companies that provide health insurance the way that
it's tied into the medical industrial complex and the
pharmaceutical and the wards that run hospitals. Just so you know,
hospitals are a for-profit enterprise. Hospitals are not
non-profit. Think about health insurance. The greatest health
insurance we ever have is the belief in our own self, not an
exterior company that can somehow provide us a solution. And again,
there's a time and a place for medicines. I'm not here to demonize
medicine. I think
medicine has strayed very far
from how it started.
Broken Healthcare System
But if you look at the original symbol with the staff
and the snakes right on top, it says, do no harm. Do no harm. Well,
that is not the case. The majority of medicine out there has its
own interest at the forefront and the
patient in the backseat. It's a
broken system, which is another podcast we can go into. And you can
actually look at the podcast with Dr.
Zach Bush, which is episode 345 or Dr. William Li, many of the
physicians we've had on the show.
This major news media, the fear narrative of Rupert
Murdoch and the six media companies that basically run the planet,
especially in the USA. How do those companies use fear to make us
feel small so that we get sedated only when we buy their stuff that
we will quote, be safe, or at least that's what they tell us?
[12:17] Buying Out
Ponder that question. How many times in your life, if
you really tune in, have you bought something out of
fear? I know I have. We've all
done it. Oh my gosh. I got to get this supplement because it's
going to make me live longer. Oh my God, I got to buy this
fill-in-the-blank to give me blank because I'm not good enough or
I'm not safe enough where I am. I just want you to know that there
is truth and honesty in sales. Everything that I sell is honest.
I believe in the
BREATHE: Breath and Wellness program. From my heart,
I believe in the offerings that we have for our community. I
believe in the Freedom Accelerator Mentorship, because
I do them with clients in groups all day long. And so the people in
our community, I believe in our sponsors, Cured and Force of Nature and Paleovalley and Organifi.
[13:00] Money is
All these amazingly organically grown,
organically made products. Here
is the key to breaking out of sedation when it comes to buying
supplements or buying things that you really don't need. Just know
when something's organic and people actually care about the planet,
they're giving back to the planet. They're taking care of Mother Earth. We can take care
of them with our money, right? Because money is energy. So wrapping a
bow on this second category of sedation, the fear news media. You
need to check yourself before you wreck yourself.
I think it was a rap song by Busta Rhymes or
Wreckx-n-Effect. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. So check
yourself if you're watching the news media, either on your phone or
Instagram or Facebook or television. I'm not here to tell you what
to do, but tune in. If you feel stressed, if you feel less love for
yourself after you watch the news media, it is truly as simple as
putting it down, turning it off, and stop watching the news.
[13:58] The Agenda
to Keep People Silent
It's actually quite that simple. Just stop watching
news. Stop it. Stop it. Now the
sedation has already been talked about, so feel into this one a
little bit more. We've already talked about how food keeps you
sedated. We've talked about how people are easier to divide and
control when you're sedated on many podcast, and specifically
through the news media, which is number two. Well, when you're in
fear, you're much easier to be divided and conquered.
I'm not going to get into it now, but if you look at
the history of
mask-wearing in ancient Egypt
and Africa, many continents, mask-wearing was always used to sedate
people and to keep people silent. And I believe that is exactly
what's going on right now. So this brings us to our third point. If
you are watching something, you are consuming something from a
media perspective, whether it's Facebook, Instagram, or even a
podcast. I advise you to take a deep breath, do a basic search on
news media corruption.
[14:53] The News
Specifically, there is one video that I'm going to
link here in the show notes. And all these newscasters across the
entire United States at the same time, on the same day that are all
owned by the same conglomerates, they all said, "This is a danger
democracy." It is going to put
chills on your neck, my friend. It is going to freak you out.
You'll probably never watch the news again and good. Make sure you
go to the blog here for this Solocast.
After hearing it, this incredibly terrible phrase,
this is incredibly dangerous to our democracy. It's like robots.
Make up your own choice. Again, I'm not here to tell you what to
do. Stop watching the news media immediately. If you care for
health, if you care for your
family, if you don't want to be sedated, put down the news media.
It is poisoning you.
Pornography is Harming Us
It is subtly making you sick by keeping you in fear.
Now, let's talk about the third face of sedation. We talked about
how food makes you sick and the media makes you sick and sedated.
And the next one is big for all of us, especially for men and
pornography. And this is a
polarizing topic, but pornography is something that 24/7/365 is
available on every device.
Available for any 9, 10, 11, 12, 13-year-old boy or
girl to watch. And when you're addicted to pornography, and I speak
from my own past experience on this, you will sedate the very
life force energy that creates
life inside of you. Play that back again. You will sedate the very
life force energy that creates life inside of you. And this is the
greatest tragedy that we are facing right now as a society, as
parents. Pornography is not something to be used as a replacement
for true sex and life force energy.
Pornography Feeds On Our Energy
Pornography is something that has been used as a tool
to disconnect people from themselves. Same with prostitution. I'm
not here to say that prostitution is right or wrong. You can make
up your own choice on that, but there is a close neighbor of
pornography and prostitution. They feed on the same
energy and the energy is that
you're not enough. You can't get what you need. You can't get
fulfilled and nourished with your own value, so you have to
actually pay for it with money or pay for it with your soul. Subtly
pornography plants negative mental seeds.
You don't have what it takes to get a real partner or
to have a true
sexual connection. Or maybe you
got hooked on this stuff when you were young, just like me, right?
It starts with Playboy. Then it turns into Penthouse. Next Hustler.
Then it goes to the wavy lines on the cable TV, and then you try to
point out a private part or a breast or something.
[17:18] How Pornography Hooks into the Limbic
And, oh my God, there it is. So it starts out just
like leading lambs to slaughter in Pinocchio. When all the kids
went to the island, pornography starts out the same way. Nice and
easy, and then it goes real south real fast, whether it's on a
tablet or a phone or computer, these sites, once they hook into
limbic system of young men, look
out because it's like feeding candy to a child, 24/7/365.
Ponder this, sex is one of the most powerful energies
known to this planet, gifted to us by great spirit. And it is an
absolute atrocity that we allow this pornography to be consumed all
day long in every country in every household. I'll tell you what,
for all the
parents listening, I almost
guarantee that your child has most likely, already seen it. Some of
the most disgusting things you could ever imagine.
[18:07] The Dark,
Demonic Energy of the Porn Industry
And what does this do to us? How does this normalize
gender dysphoria and sexual orientation confusion? How does
pornography diminish the flame of life force energy inside of all
beings? Well, it's quite simple because it teaches that a false
sexuality is real. And you can
take that to the bank and cash it because pornography is not real.
Porn is mental masturbation that turns into physical masturbation
to have some kind of false sexual flame identified as the real
And this is a very sinister force, this pornography.
If you look at many people that are involved in the industry, most
are drug addicts, many commit suicide. There's a dark,
demonic energy around the entire
adult film industry and in many adult films. By the way, maybe back
in the day before it became incredibly corrupted by dark energy and
demonic forces, maybe there was some great erotic art and you know
Your Heart's Wisdom
Maybe now there still is some great, incredible
erotic art as well. I'm not here to say that erotic art done in a
tasteful way is bad. Actually, I think it can really help people,
but that is 1% of 1%, right? The elephant in the room, no one wants
to photograph it. No one wants to talk about it, but it's right
there on your child's phone. And this is what needs attention. This
is what sedates us. And it starts out in
There is a solution to everything that I've talked
about today, whether it's food, whether it's news media, whether
it's pornography. The last one is the thoughts that you think. This
is what needs the most attention. And again, this starts out in
childhood. Your heart's wisdom knows to turn off the TV and to turn
off the news media. Your
heart's wisdom knows to buy foods that
are from Mother Earth, unadulterated, unprocessed, unhomogenized.
[19:47] The Antidote to Sedation
Your heart's wisdom knows that the antidote to
sedation is turning into the heart's wisdom. And that is the gift
that we all get to receive today. But how do you do this? How do
you transform your
thoughts from a seed of negativity to a
mighty oak tree of positivity? It can almost feel like changing a
circle into a square depending on your childhood and what you've
Well, this is the fourth phase. Your thoughts become
things. So the first part of the
transformation with your
thoughts starts with the awareness of exactly how much or how far
you want to transform. Look, many of us get caught up into zero or
100 where we buy into the manufactured shame economy that tells us
we should always want to be a caterpillar that turns into a
butterfly and accepting anything less about our desire for
transformation means that we're lazy or we don't have ambition.
What is Success?
But what if ambition was not always directly tied
success? What if success was a
lot more nuanced and complicated? So many people think of success
as this bank account with seven figures or more, but isn't success
also a healthy body and a healthy mind that allows you to
communicate with family members or friends that you love. What if
success was essentially a state of being combined with the honoring
of the mystery of life, where we can ascribe to the fact that we
choose our parents, therefore we choose our destiny and the recipe
for success and transformation can either come from pain or
pleasure, from fear or from love.
You'll get there from A to B, start to finish, no
matter what. We're all going to die. So the most enjoyable and
rewarding experience that you know deep down in your heart's
intuition should always be the guiding light.
Greater Awareness, Higher Consciousness
It should always be the North Star for any kind of
achievement or journey discovery. It's the gift that God gave you
called life. And what happens is we have this
default mode network in our
brain and the default mode network is literally what is scanning
for danger when we're completing a singular task. And so, depending
on what level of awareness you have, if you've done the emotional
inventory practice that I've talked about on many shows, I will
link that in the show notes here.
If you've never really done any self-awareness
practice, this is how you escape the
negative thoughts, the
negativity bias, the negativity force feed that is being stuffed
down your throats like you're a duck and they're going to harvest
your liver for foie gras. That's how serious it is right now. Yes,
you cannot generate the energy that you don't have without
consequences, both short-term and long-term to the mental and
[22:17] The Wisdom
Inside Us All
But you can choose to generate the energy regardless
of how you feel using caffeine or supplementation temporarily and
infrequently. But the wisdom inside of all of us connected to
intelligence that we are will
surely give us loud signals if we're too out of alignment and we're
using caffeine, drugs or stimulants or shopping food porn, social
media, workaholism, addiction to stress, or any other mechanism
that disassociates the head from the heart.
The price is going to be paid no matter what we
choose to do, but the price that is paid living in
alignment with restoring one's energy
reserves before putting out maximum energy, that's never going to
escape us as human beings. How do we course correct in this fourth
phase of understanding how we are sedated? What can we do to
adjust? How do we do things in life that actually make us happy?
[23:09] Taking an
Because when we're focused on what makes us happy,
everything that's pulling us away from that will bubble up to the
surface. And so to be aware of how you truly feel and to have
emotional inventory process
where you understand that your life is on purpose, you understand
who you are as a person, you understand your value in the world.
If you are not clear on your life's
purpose and you are not clear on
what you want to create in the world, you are completely left wide
open to that fourth phase of sedation. And that actually is the
negative thoughts, those seeds of negativity, they never ever grow
into a tree. They actually turn into weeds and then you start
subconsciously gathering the evidence that you're not enough, and
that you're not really worthy of your purpose. I want you to know
that's not the truth. The truth of who you are, and the antidote to
this fourth phase of sedation, was actually perfectly said by Alan
Watts. Alan Watts asked his students what makes you itch?
[24:09] What Makes You Itch?
What was it that if money was no option, you would
do, you would love to do? Well, then go do that. Otherwise, if you
do something just for money, you will chase it for your whole life,
and you'll be hinged upon the next moment where everything might be
better or when I can have this much money or when I can just take
off this much time, but it's all an empty vacuum begging for
And the only thing that nature hates more than a
vacuum is a
soul that has disconnected from
itself. And by hate, I just mean the absence of love. So let me
rephrase. I don't think the universe hates anything, but I do think
that the universe wants to experience itself with the absence of
love. The biggest barometer for
all of us when we are not loving or for when we are out of love is
when we begin to experience hatred and fear within ourselves. Take
a deep breath.
[24:59] The Power
Ah, and if you're a student, if you're with us in the
community for the
BREATHE: Breath and Wellness program, then you know
the power of the breath is something that no one can ever take away
from you. Once you learn how to breathe properly, how to breathe in a
circle, how to breathe in a box, how to do your breath-hold
retentions, how to hold your energy locks, how to do your different
cyclical and box breathing for your acute stressors, how to pull
yourself out of the default mode network.
You are not able to be sedated. The opposite of
depression is expression. The opposite of
anxiety is you here in this
current moment. That's where everything's happening anyways. Can
you feel it? I'm here with you right now know. We're here together
You just let that be enough. And so take six more
deep breaths as I say goodbye
for today. And I'm going to give you an action, an inspired action
to take. You now have the biggest barometer to know when you are
not loving, when you experience hatred or fear within yourself,
which that barometer will immediately light up when you experience
one of the four ways that society sedates you, with food, with news
media, with pornography, and with the thoughts that you think about
yourself. Know thyself.
It's written on the temple at the Apollo. Know
over to breathwork.io. Use the code PODCAST25. It's my gift to
you. This is a three week program. I'm so excited to guide you for
the next 21 days, so you can actually use your breath to start
being friends with your ego, understanding the parts of
yourself that you still are holding onto with shame or judgment or
[26:55] Transform Your Energy Through
Those aren't true either, but you must experience
them right. Energy that is not transmuted will sit still and no
energy can be created. It can only be transformed.
Transform this energy because the first
part of transformation starts with the awareness of exactly how far
you want to transform. I don't care who you are, where you've been.
This is an opportunity.
And I want to invite you with my open arms. It took
me three years to build this program. I traveled around the world.
I spent 30 days in Thailand crying and actually throwing up a
couple times, doing the most deep practices you can ever imagine.
And I brought back the gems. I brought back a three-week process
where you can use your own breath to clear your stress.
Breathwork.io, the code is PODCAST25. It's 25% off. It's
my gift to you.
I cannot wait to see you in this program. And that is
your inspired action. Whether you are brand new to Wellness Force
or whether you are interested in breathwork, or maybe you've tried
a lot of things and you're at a turning point in your life where
you really need to receive support. This is the call to action for
Breathwork.io, use the code PODCAST25, and I will
see you inside. And until I see you again on another Solocast or
another interview, this is Josh Trent saying goodbye for now.
Excited to see you at my home's doorstep at breathwork.io. And
until I see you again, I'm wishing you love and wellness.
