Sevan Matossian (00:02):
Bam. We’re live. I think when I get the, uh, I think I’m getting ready to make another big change to the studio here. You guys saw that? I set up those red chairs and I set up a desk over there. Actually, it’s over there. It’s over there. It’s over there. In reality, it’s over there. But when I point, it’s better for you guys to understand if I point the wrong direction. And Dave was supposed to come in and sit in those chairs, and we were supposed to do a live show. Uh, but, uh, then I took off to Arizona and we haven’t got it scheduled yet. But I’m thinking as I look around here, I need to re, if I, if I reorganize this, this is gonna sound weird, I’m not even sure if I can explain this, but if I reorganize this room and I get even more comfortable in it, I think I’m gonna go back to the old days when I used to wear a vest for every show. I could just see it like working better with the, uh, ambiance in here. If I, if I, if I, if I changed it. And I, I don’t know why. I don’t know why my dress would change if I changed the, like, setup of the room. Why I would change my clothes. But I’m going to less t-shirts. More vests. Hey,
Ra of Earth (01:12):
Sevan Matossian (01:12):
Up? What’s up, dude?
Ra of Earth (01:14):
Talking about dress code.
Sevan Matossian (01:16):
I’m just thinking, I was thinking about like reworking my studio in here and I was thinking if I rework my studio, it’d also change my dress. Like I wear a lot of these Nolan b shirts and c e o shirts. But when I used to do the CrossFit podcast, I would always wear a vest a and usually like a filson vest. And I, I kind of want to go back to the vest. It’s a, it’s a little more dressy, but I don’t know why. I don’t know why the setup of the room has anything to do with my clothes, but for some reason it does.
Ra of Earth (01:42):
You always have the, the camera shining down on you.
Sevan Matossian (01:46):
Oh, wait, well, I don’t know where else to put it. You have any suggestions? Tell me, talk to me. Help me.
Ra of Earth (01:50):
I don’t know. I just like eye level straight in front of you.
Sevan Matossian (01:52):
Yeah, but the monitor’s there.
Ra of Earth (01:56):
Sevan Matossian (01:56):
How do you do, how do you do it?
Ra of Earth (01:58):
Well? Oh, you’re using a camera?
Sevan Matossian (02:01):
Ra of Earth (02:02):
I’m actually just using my computer.
Sevan Matossian (02:04):
Oh. So if, uh, let me see. I, I, I can do that. I could switch to, um,
Ra of Earth (02:09):
But your computer or your camera. I wish I knew how to do all that stuff. Your camera’s probably better than your computer camera,
Sevan Matossian (02:18):
Right? Let me see if I can switch it to, let’s see. Studio display. Nope. Not that one. Nope, not that one. <laugh>. Hold on. I know there’s a camera.
Ra of Earth (02:29):
<laugh>. You have many cameras?
Sevan Matossian (02:31):
Oh, yeah. Thi Oh, this, this monitor. I have doesn’t even have a camera. You mean like that monitor over there? Has a camera like that? Am I looking into the camera right now? How
Ra of Earth (02:39):
You’re looking right into the camera?
Sevan Matossian (02:40):
Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. So I’m, I’m using something where it’s like I’m using the, that’s how I have that shallow depth of field. See how it’s like, see how it’s like when I lean back I get blurry.
Ra of Earth (02:52):
Sevan Matossian (02:53):
And when I’m up here, I’m all crisp. And you can see like every like, gray hair and wrinkle and like, and those
Ra of Earth (02:57):
Are, those are boards. What are they called Right behind you?
Sevan Matossian (03:02):
Yeah. I just got these on Amazon.
Ra of Earth (03:04):
Yeah. Did those help? I mean,
Sevan Matossian (03:07):
I don’t know. It makes it look like I know what I’m doing. <laugh>. I
Ra of Earth (03:09):
Know, I know. I wanted to fill this whole wall with them.
Sevan Matossian (03:12):
Yeah, do it. Do it. And, and, and have someone maybe cut out whatever you’re, if you have a logo in here, that would be dope.
Ra of Earth (03:19):
Sevan Matossian (03:20):
Right. Is that your spot right there?
Ra of Earth (03:23):
This is, yeah. This is my office.
Sevan Matossian (03:26):
Hey, you moved. You’re not in, um, Cardiff.
Ra of Earth (03:29):
I was in Laguna Beach, so now I’m in, uh, la I’m back in la. Oh.
Sevan Matossian (03:35):
Uh, how come More people, more more resources.
Ra of Earth (03:38):
Yeah. Low, like Laguna Beach, the average age is like 66 years old, which means that all my neighbors were 80. Uh, so it was just far away from everything, which is why we went there. We went there because the pandemic was still raging. Well, first we went to Mount Shasta and, uh, the first part of the pandemic. Then we came down to Laguna Beach cuz la you still needed, uh, to give up your rights to do anything. So we went to Laguna Beach and then as soon as the pandemic was over and LA started opening back up, we came back here. It’s been a lot of moving.
Sevan Matossian (04:18):
Yeah. I can’t stand moving. Oh. Oh, actually I don’t even know if I can’t stand. I can’t stand the thought of moving that, that, that’s for sure. You know what I mean?
Ra of Earth (04:25):
It’s, it’s horrible. It lasts months, months of just moving things that you don’t even think about. Like plants.
Sevan Matossian (04:36):
Hey, do you throw away a lot of shit every time you move? Is that like the benefit of it? That’s the one reason why I kind of wanna move just so I can throw away half my shit.
Ra of Earth (04:43):
I mean, we do, but we still had four U-haul. Wow. Like worth of crap somehow accumulated over the last couple years.
Sevan Matossian (04:53):
Like, lemme see something on my desk. Like I have this camera on my desk. I’ve never used it. It’s three years old. It’s probably brand new. It’s probably obsolete and I don’t know why I have it.
Ra of Earth (05:03):
Last time I was at your house, you gave me a bunch of stuff.
Sevan Matossian (05:06):
Yeah, you should come over again. I’ll, I’ll give you another u-Haul full of stuff. Do you have someone that you give your shit to? I need someone to give my shit to.
Ra of Earth (05:14):
Uh, so we, I had a storage unit that I, it was down by downtown Light. And last time I just started giving it to people that were driving by.
Sevan Matossian (05:25):
Do you still have the storage unit
Ra of Earth (05:26):
Trickle away? No.
Sevan Matossian (05:27):
Oh, good on you. I have some ideological issues, uh, with storage units.
Ra of Earth (05:33):
What’s wrong with them?
Sevan Matossian (05:35):
Just like get rid of that shit. Like why? Like you have a storage unit. Like I have a friend who has like five storage units throughout the United States and it’s crazy. I know. He’ll never go back to that shit. Never, ever, ever. Just give it to me. Let me sell that shit and pay my mortgage.
Ra of Earth (05:49):
It sits there for 20 years. Yeah. Actually that’s a good business. If somebody could just go through the storage unit and then split the cost with the owner of the storage unit. Selling it all off.
Sevan Matossian (05:59):
Yeah. I was in, I was in my, uh, I was in a friend’s storage unit and there was a backpack there and it was full of old camera gear. This is about, I don’t know, a year or two ago. And he’s like, I’m like, Hey dude, there’s a bunch of old camera gear here. He’s like, you can have it. And then like a month later he’s like, Hey, uh, how do, what was in that bag? Anything good? And I’m like, I don’t, I sold it all and paid my mortgage. $5,400 <laugh>. Thank you. Serious. Thank you.
Ra of Earth (06:26):
No, that’s not a real story. <laugh>, a couple years ago,
Sevan Matossian (06:32):
A year ago. A year ago, not even, maybe, maybe less than a year ago. It’s life. It’s life. I, I have, I have a storage shed full of mo four motorcycles that haven’t been started in three years. It’s fucking idiocy. I need to fucking sell them and like, yeah. Be gone with ’em. I would rather have the space.
Ra of Earth (06:53):
I gave my motorcycle. One of my mo well the last motorcycle I had away, the last time we were in our storage unit, a guy was driving by in a post. He was like working for the US Post Office and he just goes, sick bike, or that’s an awesome bike, or something like that. And I just screamed cuz he’s driving by. I was like, do you want it? And he stopped. He came back and he, he now has a motorcycle that
Sevan Matossian (07:19):
He Did you give him the pink slip too?
Ra of Earth (07:21):
Sevan Matossian (07:23):
I, I did something so stupid. This one motorcycle I got, I put, I got a stencil of my, uh, first born’s birthday put on it October 3rd. And now for some reason that’s made me attached to it. Like I don’t want to sell it. It’s so stupid. It’s, it’s, it’s, it’s embarrassing. I don’t even want to talk about it because, you know what I mean? Cuz I put that on there now for some reason there’s some extra attachment to it. Even though it’s just another motorcycle that came from Japan.
Ra of Earth (07:48):
Sevan Matossian (07:50):
That never gets ridden <laugh>. That’s probably losing value. Do you remember that being a little kid and like seeing people, older people’s shit and you’re like, God, you should just give that to me. You don’t even use that.
Ra of Earth (08:00):
N Yeah. It’s not even when you’re younger, it’s just when you don’t have this stuff, you’re like, what <laugh>. I wish I could have that.
Sevan Matossian (08:08):
Do you have anything that’s just absurd. Like two things.
Ra of Earth (08:11):
I was like, I actually felt like that when I went to your house and you had like seven motorcycles in your, in your garage.
Sevan Matossian (08:16):
Yeah. Just like, what’s he doing? He’s crazy. <laugh> Do you have anything else like that? You know, i t-shirts. T-shirts and headphones. I have. So I, I need to get rid of like, um, I have like 20, uh, every second count T-shirts. That’s the movie I made about CrossFit and for some reason I can’t get rid of ’em. Yeah. And it’s like, dude, just fucking get rid of ’em. And same with headphones. I have just drawers full of headphones like this, like stuff like this.
Ra of Earth (08:47):
I need a podcast set up Sivan.
Sevan Matossian (08:50):
I’d love to help you with that. I’m coming down to Newport. Are you? Oh. Oh no. I’m coming to Newport in May 7th or eighth. I
Ra of Earth (08:56):
Mean, it’s 45 minutes away, 30 minutes away with no traffic and driving a hundred miles an hour. It looks
Sevan Matossian (09:03):
Like you have a setup. What you have right there. Sounds really good. You look good and you sound great.
Ra of Earth (09:07):
Yeah. But I, this is like a U us B mic so it constantly breaks and it constantly, I’ll be talking and then people are like no sound. Cuz it’s, it’s, it’s consumer quality and I need the, the real stuff.
Sevan Matossian (09:26):
The audio sounds good. Like, um, I’m, I’m gonna pull something up here and see if this is what, Hey, is Laguna Laguna’s the town? Just, that’s where the montage is. That fancy hotel, right?
Ra of Earth (09:37):
Sevan Matossian (09:38):
Yeah. That’s an amazing town we went to that Is that hard to leave there?
Ra of Earth (09:42):
I mean the beach, the beach is the cleanest beach in California. So that was that And, and the view that we had, we were overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Every sunset was like a moving art piece. So yeah, that montage has a beach and that’s where we went almost every single day. There was a few other beaches. What was Woods Cove was a, was a good beach down there.
Sevan Matossian (10:11):
Did you see Ryan much when you were down there? Because he’s in Newport just 20 minutes up the road, right? Yeah,
Ra of Earth (10:15):
We went to his gym. I wasn’t really working out, but we went to his gym once and it was, took us 45 minutes to get there. Even though it was right down the road, like you said. Right, right. So we didn’t really go back
Sevan Matossian (10:31):
When I, I actually, um, remember when I called you and I was like, Hey, I need someone to like, help out with the liver king. And I hooked up with Ryan. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. I actually got to hang out with him a little bit.
Ra of Earth (10:40):
Sevan Matossian (10:41):
Yeah. And it, it was, it was actually pretty cool. He’s he’s really on the straight and narrow. He wouldn’t even have a drink with me. He’s really, uh,
Ra of Earth (10:48):
He’s still there.
Sevan Matossian (10:49):
<laugh>. Yeah. He, I mean I I mean I respect it. I I I respect it. And he said he tried to move to, um, lake Tahoe, but he said it was too isolated.
Ra of Earth (10:59):
Oh, he did?
Sevan Matossian (11:00):
Yeah. I think he went up there for tax reasons. He wanted to have a place in Nevada. Smart, right?
Ra of Earth (11:08):
Sevan Matossian (11:10):
Are you liking la?
Ra of Earth (11:12):
I don’t know. I do because there’s a lot of events here. It’s just like the best people in the world do their events here. So everything’s accessible. But when I think about long term, I, I just think about land, you know, open spaces and, and nature. But when we went there, we went to Mount Chest, we kind of got bored. So I don’t know. <laugh>, I’m undecided. I’m, we’re, right now we’re thinking about moving to another country like Italy. So my, so I got married since last time I was on here. Congratulations. My wife has a
Sevan Matossian (11:59):
Ra of Earth (12:00):
Thank you. Yes. Sema. She has an Italian pa uh, citizenship. So there’s a hint of desire to go to another country, but she has already done that in her life cuz she’s from Argentina and she came to America. So she’s not craving having another cultural experience. I am cuz she’s already done it.
Sevan Matossian (12:26):
I I I I have nothing nice to say about Los Angeles, California. And I, I, I guess the one good thing I could say about it is it doesn’t seem like it could get any worse. Maybe it’s, it’s it’s due for a revival. It could only get better <laugh>. But, but it is some really, um, that there’s some, uh, a mental virus there. There’s some really bad thinking there. Which, which I guess in another way you could see is just a shitload of opportunity to, um, aggregate the people who are starting to wake up. Cuz they probably are lonely and scared, right? Yeah.
Ra of Earth (13:00):
I guess I don’t really inter, even though there’s a lot of people here, I don’t really interact with a lot of them. I go to the health food store and mm-hmm. <affirmative> to yoga studios and that’s about it. And events and the, and basically interact with people like me. So LA is, when I first moved here 16 years ago, it was pretty tough because it’s so spread out and, and you really just have to find your community. And that’s hard to do if you’re just visiting. So I say that LA is like a horrible place to visit cuz you just don’t know what to do. You don’t know where your people are. But eventually you get in, you find that when you live here after like two years,
Sevan Matossian (13:51):
There’s, there’s people there who like actually locked down. Do you know what I mean by that? There’s like people who stayed in their house for six months or a year or two years. And there’s a lot of them. We have a fam we have family that moved out of LA cuz they were so scared of the pandemic. We
Ra of Earth (14:09):
Oh, because they’re scared of
Sevan Matossian (14:10):
That. Scared of, yeah. They were so scared. They believed it. So like, there’s people there who are just like literally trapped in between their ears. They cannot get out.
Ra of Earth (14:19):
Sevan Matossian (14:19):
Even if you’re like, hey, you’re like, oh, you know this. You’re like, just walk through here. I’ll hold the door open for you.
Ra of Earth (14:24):
Sevan Matossian (14:25):
They’re handcuffed like this. And you’re like, here’s the key. You want me to let you go? No. What are you doing <laugh>? You know what I mean? Like
Ra of Earth (14:31):
Yeah. We got kicked out of the beach. Um, yeah,
Sevan Matossian (14:35):
I got kicked out of the beach in Santa Cruz
Ra of Earth (14:36):
Too. 2020. And then I remember just looking at SEMA and saying, okay, we need to leave this. Like, what are we doing here? And we left.
Sevan Matossian (14:47):
And now you’re back. I wonder why you stay away. <laugh>. You know why you’re back.
Ra of Earth (14:51):
We are back. I don’t know. It was alluring to come back.
Sevan Matossian (14:58):
You like your place?
Ra of Earth (14:59):
Yeah, our place is awesome. It’s just the events.
Sevan Matossian (15:03):
Like what, what, when you say events, what are you talking
Ra of Earth (15:05):
About? Oh, like the conscious life expo. The, the, just like all these events that are fitness slash health, yoga, spirituality, consciousness psychology. You can’t just live anywhere and have stuff to go to every weekend that is in a sunny setting where the best people in the world in that field come and speak. And, and you get to absorb that by living in Los Angeles. Another place like that is Vegas. Mm. But who wants to live in Vegas? Mm. I guess a lot of people do.
Sevan Matossian (15:51):
Have you ever lived there?
Ra of Earth (15:52):
No, but I’ve been there a lot because it’s only four hours away from here. But no, I haven’t lived there.
Sevan Matossian (15:59):
Did you think any, I don’t think anyone really wants to live in Vegas. They
Ra of Earth (16:02):
Dry. It’s kind of like they’re, they’re there because they have to be there.
Sevan Matossian (16:06):
Or, or, or they th they, they rationalize it for some economic decision.
Ra of Earth (16:10):
Sevan Matossian (16:12):
Hey, I, um, yesterday, this is off subject a little bit. I was driving down the street in Santa Cruz right along the beach and there was a F-150 a truck. Mm-hmm <affirmative> in front of me. And I, I see trash get thrown out the window
Ra of Earth (16:28):
Sevan Matossian (16:28):
I’m like, wow, that’s pretty amazing. Like still
Ra of Earth (16:30):
Happening like that.
Sevan Matossian (16:31):
Yeah. Like I, I haven’t seen that. I haven’t really seen that since I left like Berkeley. So I followed the car and it pulls into this farmer’s market. It’s all just all these hippies and shit. This white lady gets out and I go, hey. She goes, what? I go, I want to thank you. She goes What for? I’m like, I thought it was only black people who littered <laugh> and you just really unfucked me. Like I just like you. I was a racist piece of shit before today. And now you have just shown me that the world is also white people who litter. I thank you. Her fucking boyfriend was like beside himself. I was like, what? I’m sitting being serious.
Ra of Earth (17:07):
Sevan Matossian (17:09):
I should have filmed it. I should have filmed it. It would’ve been a great, it’s a great comedy bit.
Ra of Earth (17:15):
Sevan Matossian (17:16):
Ra of Earth (17:17):
Sevan Matossian (17:18):
Ra of Earth (17:20):
I know. That’s
Sevan Matossian (17:21):
Who the fuck litters.
Ra of Earth (17:22):
It’s the same thing when you see somebody smoking cigarettes too. You’re like, wait, people still do that?
Sevan Matossian (17:27):
Hey, shut the fuck up David. Did I call the cops again? I know what you’re doing. Listen, you can’t be driving around on my streets and ramming other cars and me not called the cops on you. I think that’s fair. I told the I a couple days ago I saw a car ram another car and then they both sped onto the freeway and I took pictures of both of them and called the cops. And he’s, he’s David’s alluding that I’m a snitch like that. I called the cops and it wasn’t very popular in the comments, Ronnie, that I called the cops. Even a cop, even one of my cop listeners was like, I shouldn’t have called. I was like, what the fuck?
Ra of Earth (18:03):
No, you’re just making more work for them. The insurance company will handle it.
Sevan Matossian (18:10):
Um, I thought about not saying it to that lady, I want to tell you. So be careful. S because I thought, what if she’s crazy? And I say that to her that that thing about, I only thought black and she gets crazy of the littering lady, but she was like, seriously? She was, I even more detail when I, they parked the car, I saw them smoke a bowl and they were using a match and she would, they were an F one 50 and they were both so obese that they touched each other in the car. And I just was starting to feel like, okay, they’re stoned, they’re fucking 80% of the way to decrepitude. They can’t hurt me. So I just, I just thought it would be a good funny bit like to do the whole racist thing on ’em. Right. And it was hilarious cuz it’s in a farmer’s market and
Ra of Earth (18:49):
You were being super racist by by saying
Sevan Matossian (18:51):
That too, right? Yeah. Yeah. It was great. It was so good. I hope they appreciated it cuz it took a lot of courage on my part to say it.
Ra of Earth (19:00):
You should have filmed it.
Sevan Matossian (19:02):
I should have filmed it. It would’ve been good.
Ra of Earth (19:05):
I mean, you should have a camera with you at all
Sevan Matossian (19:06):
Times. I do
Ra of Earth (19:09):
One of those, uh, chest.
Sevan Matossian (19:14):
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.
Ra of Earth (19:16):
You can have
Sevan Matossian (19:16):
That. I, I probably do. Andrew Hiller has an Amma. This friend of mine has this amazing GoPro that he, that he attaches here. They’ve gotten so nice. The GoPros.
Ra of Earth (19:26):
I mean if you’re, if you’re meeting people, that could be a show of its own.
Sevan Matossian (19:32):
You’re right. This fun. And you know what? People are asking for content with me, not behind this desk. They’re like, Hey, can we see some shit in your life
Ra of Earth (19:40):
That used to be what you were doing, right?
Sevan Matossian (19:42):
Yeah. Well, kind of showing other people’s lives.
Ra of Earth (19:46):
Your life is pretty cool. I mean you have your, what’s the, the channel three play? Three playing brothers,
Sevan Matossian (19:53):
Three playing brothers. Yeah. That’s kind my life. Like, my life is kind of cool. Uh, Ken Walters, one of these clowns you follow two discipline are gonna pull a piece on you. <laugh>. I don’t know if in this town, I don’t know if that’s gonna happen this time, but you’re right. It’s not worth for, for a, for a, a small little bit. You’re probably, it’s worth, it’s not getting worth getting killed. I gotta get home to my kids.
Ra of Earth (20:15):
Yeah. You gotta think about them
Sevan Matossian (20:17):
Raw. How do you sit with negative thoughts? Uh, cross-legged, uh, with his thumb in his ass? Uh, do you invite them in like a neighbor? What’s a negative thought? I would need an example of a negative thought.
Ra of Earth (20:35):
Yeah. At some point you get to the point where it’s not, it’s not, uh, negative. So I think that’s what he’s talking about. Do you invite them in like a, because they’re not something that you wanna just shoo away, but I guess when I, when I have what would be considered a negative thought and I recognize that it’s a thought that doesn’t serve me, I pass it through. So for instance, if my wife triggers me, right, if, if I start finding myself getting irritated by something that I know isn’t, shouldn’t be irritating me, I usually just breathe through it and watch, watch and kind of giggle at how I’m getting irritated. Like there’s this thing that I hate so much and I can’t, and I don’t know why I hate it, but it’s, it’s, and it might be the sound of everybody eating, but because we’re always eating together, there’s this like, this sound of her eating internally.
It like rips my insides apart. I don’t, it’s like my, I can feel my body reacting, but she’s just chewing her food. And I deal with this very often and it’s kind of funny for me, it’s kind of like I’m laughing at my body reacting to this neutral event. And I think that that’s taught me to be like that with almost anything that’s neutral. Cuz I have to deal with this all the time. And it’s hilarious to me because I don’t know why I still react to this. So at some point my body just gets really, it it learned to get annoyed at the sound of another person eating. I don’t know why that is. Um, it it,
Sevan Matossian (22:22):
That happens to me. Um, what you’re saying about once a year, and it’s very weird when it happens. Like I’ll just catch someone eating. It’s, and it’s usually my wife and my wife is eats very quietly and all of a sudden I’m losing my shit <laugh> inside. Hey, I wonder, I wonder if you, if you could cure that, if you, um, uh, like you laid on your back with an erection and they sat on it and then they just ate something. You know what I mean? Like a bowl of Cheerios and then you would, you know what I mean? You would have this association with like, I’ll tolerate anything. Yeah, do what you want. I don’t care. Pick your nose, flick boogers on me. I’m good. Take a shit. Whatever. We’re good. Uh, excuse me. Uh, Seema, I know we’re eating dinner, but come here, we’re gonna fix this once in a fall, come to the bedroom, bring your food with you. It’s just a, uh, uh, Trish, I used to have horrible anxiety once I learned to sit with my anxiety and expect it, I invited it in. Once I learned to expect it, I missed it when it disappeared. Oh wow.
Ra of Earth (23:23):
Sounds like a poem. It became an old friend was her last line.
Sevan Matossian (23:28):
Do do you get nervous when you, sometimes when I see you, I’m speaking in front of crowds on your Instagram or to groups of people, I get nervous for you. I’m like, I’m like, he doesn’t even seem nervous. Do you get nervous? That’s the only time I ever get anxiety is group speak.
Ra of Earth (23:41):
No, I get nervous and and
Sevan Matossian (23:44):
You handle it so
Ra of Earth (23:44):
Good. Points it out. And I’m like, she
Sevan Matossian (23:47):
Really, that helps. Could
Ra of Earth (23:48):
Tell <laugh>. I know. I’m like, you really could tell. She’s like, yeah, your voice was shaking and Yeah. I I speak in front of people. What last time I learned to not be nervous. Oh, so check this out. This is actually, so this will help somebody else who gets nervous. Last time I spoke it was outdoors. It was at Purium hq and so there was a lot of people there and it was cold. And so I was the last one. I basically had to close out, uh, a bunch of other speakers and, you know, comment on what they say and, and rally up everybody based on what everybody said. So I had to pay attention to what everybody else was saying, but I was freezing. And so I was doing breath of fire <laugh>, and I was, I was just trying to do that to warm myself up so that when I got up there, I wasn’t, I could feel myself shivering. I was shivering and I was trying to, I was doing long, deep breathing, very strong and breath of fire. And
Sevan Matossian (24:54):
Do you think everyone else there was shivering? Was everyone cold, you think?
Ra of Earth (24:57):
I think s so yeah, it was cold. I, I was, I was also like, am I nervous shivering, or am I cold shivering. But I was definitely cold chiming and because I was doing breath, various types of breath work for like 45 minutes, I got on the mic completely. Like I was talking to my best friend at a cafe. Like, it was weird. So that helped, but we’re not all Did
Sevan Matossian (25:23):
Anyone notice that? Was anyone like, holy shit, you were so fucking amazing today.
Ra of Earth (25:27):
Yeah, actually SEMA did.
Sevan Matossian (25:30):
Oh, that’s awesome.
Ra of Earth (25:31):
And actually a lot of people did come up to me and, and say something
Sevan Matossian (25:35):
Like, you were hyper present and just intimate with them.
Ra of Earth (25:38):
Right? I think it’s, it’s more just the calmness of speaking. And I think that everybody in an audience, when we’re watching somebody speak, we all want them to be that way. And so when somebody does show up that way, I think that everybody watching does appreciate that as opposed to the person that gets on the mic and say, I’m so nervous.
Sevan Matossian (26:02):
You, you do this thing where you’ll bring people into a room, they can come to your house, you’ll have a group of them and you’ll speak to them and, and, and put them through a practice that helps them reset what they’re manifesting.
Ra of Earth (26:19):
Yeah. I’m doing most of that online.
Sevan Matossian (26:22):
What if I just want to pay you to do that to me? What if I just want you to like, holy fuck, when I, I can’t, first of all, when you say that I get nervous for you, I’m like, God, how does he, how does he know how to do that? And there’s gonna be room full of people and they’re gonna come to his house. But there’s a four hour process. You’ll sit down a group of people and you’ll put them through a practice to basically like, what can you gimme an, uh, insight into what the process is of that? And, and I wanna do that. Can you come to my house and do me <laugh> reset me? What if you reset me and fuck me? What if like, you walk away and I think, uh, dog breeding and next thing I know I’m this fucking wealthy podcaster that turns into a dog breeder and my shit goes to fucking hell. I don’t know. You know, that’s why like all those people who do acid are ayahuasca. I’m like, dude, you should do a lot of sitting by yourself before you, like, you should be careful hitting the reset button on the, on the, on the brain. You might, you might stop at the wrong channel. Master start manifesting the wrong shit.
Ra of Earth (27:20):
Yeah. But the, the thing with what I do is a alignment is what’s most important for my process is, is finding somebody’s values, finding their personal rules, finding what their passions are and aligning their life to that. Even if they still stay within their current career. How do we take the things that they don’t like and try and get away from that and, and go towards the things that they do like, but part of my process is getting the, the subconscious active. So a lot of people are reading books or they’re learning things, but they don’t realize that all of our programs are running. And they were set in stone in our psyche when we were seven, eight years old, maybe f like three years old to seven or eight years old is when we learned to be in this world. We learned what we are afraid of.
We learned what we are drawn to and we learned why all that is when we were that age. And at that age, our brain is, is humming at a theta frequency, which is, which is the same frequency that you’re at right before you go to sleep. So it’s not sleeping. It’s, it’s like when you’re daydreaming that sort of frequency and that’s the frequency you’re at as a small child. And that’s the frequency that we can reprogram, unprogram our subconscious. And so if we’re doing learning and we want to incorporate programs into our psychology, we really have to be at that brainwave frequency. So we have to get into that frequency, usually with breath or some sort of meditative practice before we can start tuning how we want to be and, and all Does it
Sevan Matossian (29:22):
Help doing that in the, in the room with other people? So like six of you are on the frequency and the seventh person’s having trouble, but, but because there’s six other people there, they fucking get, get in. They like, yeah. They, they they get to it also like, you know, like tip, you put 10 women in a room together and they start menstruating in the same cycle. It’s
Ra of Earth (29:38):
The same thing with CrossFit. I mean it’s, it’s easier to work out if everybody is on the same intention. Usually it’s goal-oriented.
Sevan Matossian (29:49):
Or have you ever seen one of those things where they, they they put like six metronomes together mm-hmm. <affirmative> and they’re ticking all different speeds and then, and then all of a sudden they start getting on the same.
Ra of Earth (29:58):
There’s a lot of, so I posted.
