What Does a Sunlighten Sauna Session Feel Like?Erick Godsey

A sauna session should be therapeutic and enjoyable, not unbearably hot. When you walk into a Sunlighten infrared sauna, you will feel a gentle heat that instantly takes you away from the daily stresses of life. When you walk out of a Sunlighten sauna, you will feel energized with a sense of excitement to conquer the rest of your day. If you can naturally deposit energy into your body to improve your quality of life, what could be better? Sunlighten is the addiction you can feel good about.

Power Quotes From The Show

“One set of people will find the divine through deep work and another set will find it through relationships. People who find the divine in the deep work seem to be able to go deep in a monogamous relationship and it makes them feel safe. In comparison, the people who find the divine in relationships might find polygamous connections a truly an interesting way to live in those bliss moments.” – Erick Godsey

“I know I'm going to die and I know that everything I do will eventually be forgotten at some point in time so what should I do? It's better to redirect your program towards the highest value than to try to invest all of your energy to uninstall all of the programmings you've already received. All of us can take the set programming from the first seven years of our lives and redirect it towards the highest possible good that the programming could be. We chose our parents and we chose this programming so it's much more effective to redirect it as opposed to try spending 40 years completely undoing it.” – Erick Godsey

“At least once a week during a work day I have to stop what I'm doing, leave my desk, grab my journal, and ask myself, “Why am I alive? What am I doing?” It might appear that I have everything in life together but there are times when I become so overwhelmed and I have to stop and reconnect to why I believe I'm alive.” – Erick Godsey
