The Ills of Un-Groundedness

floating-in-photoshop

In April of last year I got rid of almost 90% of the books in my library. Why? Because I felt like it. And as you’ll see in a moment, I trust my feelings. So when my gut, heart, or that grounded voice in my head asks me to take action… I don’t question it, I just do it. Anyway, you might …

NEWS: Kanye West’s Spiritual War (my two cents)

Last night one of my closest friends sent me an article he thought I’d like. It was titled: “Inside Kanye West’s Breakdown: Rapper Feels Like ‘He’s Under Spiritual Attack” My friend was right… I liked the article for a number of good reasons. #1 – I like Kanye’s music. Kanye’s first few albums featured some mainstream hits.  They were songs that most people tap their …

The Real ZOMBIE CULT of America

It’s a strange state of affairs when mindless media consumption, consumerism, sloth and selfishness become the normal state of things. In the US… Thanksgiving, Black Friday and holiday anxiety will be arriving in the next few days. Passive propaganda (media) consumption is the easiest way to brain-wash massive amounts people. The body is in a low-charge, relaxed and receptive state; …

White People Doing “The Haka”?

Today is a very good day for me. Today I released a video with scenes from a very special private event I held. But TODAY someone on Facebook became very upset about something that happened in the video.  He noticed… That there were 12 (mostly) white boys performing The Maori “Haka” War Dance, at what our befuddled friend called “Elliott Hulse’s feel good camp”! And he …

This is about cancer

There is no need for me to go into all of the scary statistics surrounding cancer. We’ve all known someone who’s had cancer, and many of us have had personal challenges with it. Of course all cancers are different, but today scientists are looking more into the causes of cancer than ever before. One thing that the research as made …

Information Constipation (why I gave away 90% of my books)

fullsizerender-4-2

I woke up one morning in April and decided to pack up all my books and give them away. My office had been littered with all kinds of books, my bookshelves were so overloaded that one of them even collapsed in my office. The act of packing up my books and giving them away may have seemed spontaneous, but it was …

Rebirth Through Battle Scars [mirror post]

screen-shot-2016-09-11-at-6-31-32-pm

Becoming The Strongest Version of Yourself is all about evolution. For evolution to take place, something has to be left behind. For you and I to grow stronger, we have to practice courage in leaving behind older, weaker (or no longer resourceful) versions of ourselves. This process of (ego) self destruction is essential in order for us to be reborn …

My Favorite Strongwoman

FullSizeRender-1

Back in 2007 I was introduced to Strongman for the very first time. The first workout consisted of carrying a 200 lbs keg, dragging a 400 lbs tractor tire with a chain, and lifting a 225 lbs jagged concrete stone (which tore all the skin off of my forearms). It was fu*king brutal. My skin was stinging and burning. My …

Meet Elliott In EUROPE (sign up here)

Last summer I spent three weeks touring Europe, speaking, teaching, and getting to meet all of my incredible fans across the pond. I promised that I would be back… and that time has come! In the last 12 months I have continued to learn and evolve in ways that I can hardly explain. One reason why I have not been …
