Ah, friends. As I was stumbling through life on a nice, warm, sunny afternoon – looking to Fish Without Bait I stumbled upon the 100th podcast of Fishing Without Bait. And, imagine that. Synchronicity and serendipity combine.
Ah. Welcome to the party. Welcome to Fishing Without Bait. Welcome to a lifetime without definitive expectations. Welcome to a lifetime of exploding through your life – of being in that dark chrysalis and exploding and crawling right out of that dark hole. Spreading your wings and living your life in technicolor. Welcome to Fishing Without Bait. Welcome to full-impact mindfulness. Welcome to our world. Climb on. Let the adventure begin. If you hear some chatter in the background, it’s because we’re having a celebration for our 100th episode
We continue with Part III of our conversation with Laura Pickens as we were discussing helping chakras and unblocking the energies caused by emotional distress. Laura was about to tell us how she developed her own reset button
Ah. Abracadabra. What I speak, I create. And, as for consistent listeners of Fishing Without Bait and full-impact mindfulness, we often talk about connection. We often talk about connecting the dots. We often talk about finding your authentic self. And, at times we often need some help with that. Sometimes we need some guides. Sometimes we need to just pay attention on purpose to what’s right in front of us.
Last week we were introduced to Will Rutherford of Sawtooth Willie and PanelRiot.com a podcast about comic books. Having a great conversation here with Jim Ellermeyer here on Fishing Without Bait. We’re going to pick up where we left off last week, and I hope you guys enjoy.
Hey, groovy man! Can you dig it? Are you far out? Or are you a square? Are you going to get down with it? Or do you need to take a chill pill? Do those words sound familiar to you? Perhaps out of the past? Well, welcome to Fishing Without Bait. Welcome to a world of full-impact mindfulness where we’re looking to help people create their lives rather than to find one. We’re looking for people to find their authentic self
Ah, where’s your ship going? Welcome to Fishing Without Bait. A lifetime without definitive expectations. My name is Jim Ellermeyere. I’m a behavioral health therapist. And, today as always I’m joined by my good friend, producer of this program, and co-host – Mr. Mike. Mr. Mike, sometimes we talk about ships passing in the night. We talk about time being transitory. We talk about life encounters
Will you please grow up? Oh, come on. Be serious. It’s time to grow up. It’s time to act right. Will you please act your age? How many times have you heard these phrases in your life? When you were trying to perhaps have some fun. When you were not interfering with anyone’s life or happiness. When you’re encountering perhaps someone who had a heavy going of life. Well, if you’re that Peter Pan type of person
Ah, you’re hired! Welcome aboard. Welcome to Fishing Without Bait – a lifetime without definitive expectations. Where we take people on a journey down rabbit holes and through the looking glass to experience life in full technicolor. We help people come out of their cocoon and experience their life with full-impact mindfulness.
Ah, shazam. Open sesame. What type of power words do you have? What type of magic spells do you use? What type of incantations do you work in your life? Welcome to Fishing Without Bait – a world of full-impact mindfulness. And, today we’re going to talk about words of power.
Ah, turn the light on. I can’t see. I’m in the dark. So, how often do we refer to situations in our life as light or darkness? So, light – according to our wonderful scientists is all colors put together. And, darkness – black, is the absence of light.
Ah, surf’s up. Wax your boards. Let’s head to the beach. And, welcome to yet another stimulating and exciting episode of Fishing Without Bait. A lifetime without definitive expectations where you approach each day with a beginner’s mind and walk through your life like a butterfly coming out of your cocoon growing your wings and gradually turning your world into technicolor.
Ah, good evening. I’m hoping that your battery is charged. But, we’re going to be talking about your life – not necessarily battery life. We’re going to be talking about are you online or offline. However, we’re going to be talking about that in a different context. We’re going to be talking about are you offline with your authentic self. Or are you online? Are you tuned in or are you tuned out?
Ah, welcome to our world. Welcome to the world of Fishing Without Bait and Full-Impact Mindfulness. Where we challenge you to participate in your life. We challenge you to walk through your life without unreasonable expectations. To have that beginner’s mind and be open and aware to everything around you and to be in the present moment – to pay attention on purpose to your life
Ah, what a special moment. I want this to either last or remember it forever. Today, as always, I’m joined by my good friend, co-host, and producer of this program – Mr. Mike. Mr. Mike, we often talk about making memories, creating memories, holding onto memories. So, when someone wants to record a particular event for posterity, what do they use?
Ah, hello! Welcome aboard. Welcome aboard the Good Ship Butterfly. And, for those of you who may not know what the butterfly is, perhaps you might want to check out some of our previous podcasts. Perhaps you may want to check out our Full-Impact Mindfulness logo – the butterfly starting in the darkness and exploding into light. Living a life out loud.
Oh. I’m sorry. I regret bumping into you. Oh, I think I recognize you. Yes, I do. My gosh. I think we used to work together didn’t we? Well, perhaps we did. So, let’s talk about our lives today. Let’s talk about acquaintances. Let’s talk about friends. And, let’s talk about life companions. Let’s talk about fully impacting your life. Let’s talk about participating in your life. Let’s talk about being alive and feeling the tingle and participating in your life through full-impact mindfulness.
Mike Sorg here, producer of Fishing Without Bait. Today, we went down to Black Star Tattoo in Belle Vernon, PA. And, we had a conversation while Jim was getting his new tattoo representing full-impact mindfulness. The following is a conversation that Jim had with Jake Steele, the artist working on his tattoo.
Oh, hi, Mike. We recently received some good news that our Fishing Without Bait logo is now a registered trademark of Namaste Holistic Counseling. However, I believe we’ve never really explored what holistic actually is defined as. What would your definition of holistic be?

What flag are you waving today? What’s outside? What’s outside of your home? What’s on your ship? What type of sports team do you follow? What is in your life? What are you looking for? We’re flying our flag today. We’re looking for logos. Flying your own flag.
Ah, so you’re here. And, as we greet you, we say Namaste. There’s many variations and meanings of Namaste, Mike. It actually comes from India. And, it’s an Indian way of greeting each other. It’s a way of showing homage and respect to one another. So, in some Indian cultures, particularly in the North and the South, they use Namaste as holding their elbows out, their palms together, first of all to their minds and to their hearts, greeting to someone. And, quite often it could have the meaning of literally that our minds meet.
Ah, welcome. Are you looking for the truth? Are you looking for somebody to tell you the truth? Perhaps you’ve heard of Diogenes who is the person who had the lamp and would go searching throughout the night. And, what he was searching for? He was searching for an honest man. He was searching for an honest person. So, is there honesty in your heart?
