Gnostic Cosmology & Alternative Thought with The Juan - Episode 52
Multiple dimensions of existence, King Solomon's magic, Divine Feminine, the Law of Attraction and ooooohhh so many more topics were purposefully left out of what we now call the Christian Bible. But why?The study of such extra-canonical works is called Gnosticism. The Gnostics and the excluded "false" teachings they studied were deemed heretics by the early Christian church. But why? What harm can asking a few questions be? Sound familiar?Take the first step off the ledge into the deep dive that is Gnostic Cosmology with Jeffrey and first time guest, The Juan from "The Juan on Juan Podcast". Such a great conversation....and the first of many!Tip: Ya might wanna grab a pen and paper, because they're gonna be some shit you wanna write down. ;-)Be sure to hit us up on Instagram, Twitter, and send us an email FunctionallyDysfunctionalShow@gmail.com.

Ways to IMMEDIATELY Reduce Stress, Fight Anxiety, and Boost Your Immune System That You've Never Heard Of - Episode 44
What if there was a certain music that you could listen to that had scientifically proven health benefits that include: reduced stress and anxiety, increased immune system function, nervous system health, and hormone balancing.Sounds too good to be true doesn't it?Well study after study after study shows that such a music actually exists. And it's not a style of music, but rather a frequency of music. Music tuned to 528 Hz frequency (rather than the normal 440 Hz) has all of the aforementioned affects, plus many more.Sounds like bullshit doesn't it? Yeah, I thought so too when I first heard it.Fortunately, I took the time to do some homework and see if there was any scientific study to such claims. And come to find out, there are MOUNTAINS of it.But 528 Hz sound waves aren't the only thing your doctor isn't telling you about. There is also EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) that is an even newer modality that is showing impressive results for anxiety, PTSD, and other conditions in studies thus far.After you listen to this episode, come back and check out these links for further reading, reference, listening, and viewing:Influence of various intensities of 528 Hz sound-wave in production of testosterone in rat's brain and analysis of behavioral changesEffect of 528 Hz Music on the Endocrine System and Autonomic Nervous System [.PDF]Miracles in Medicine Explained by Sound ScienceMusic that ALL plays at 528 Hz on 528Radio.comEmotional Freedom Technique (EFT) TappingNine Hour 528hz Dreamscape Video

The "Equalizer" of Double Standards - Episode 43
Do you watch the new show that stars Queen Latifah,  called "The Equalizer"? It's a TV series take on the Denzel Washington movies, that are a take on a book series by Michael Sloan.In this episode we break down a first impression of the show, as a whole, but also get into the social innuendo of the show. In Episode 4 of the the first season of The Equalizer, Queen Latifah accosts a man in the shower of a men's locker room at a gym, and apparently that's ok.What if a man in the show had of walked into a woman's locker room and accosted her in the shower?This is only one of the MANY social double standards that we discuss in this episode.Be sure to hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or via email at FunctionallyDysfunctionalShow@gmail.com.

Cancel Culture: This is NOT The Way - Episode 42
We stand at the edge of a precipice. Hate has NOT been eradicated in our society, it has been embraced, encouraged, and rebranded. If you have an opinion that differs from the iron triangle that is made up of politicians, media, and big business, you are at risk of being cursed, discriminated, denied civil rights, refused healthcare, lose your job, and all around be "canceled".Not only is this being seen as socially acceptable at an alarming rate, it's being encouraged by the mainstream media.The thing about propaganda is that you must dehumanize an enemy before you can hate them. And you must hate them, before you can go to war with them. The American people have been set against each other.And it wasn't the Nazi's that beat Jews in the streets of Germany, it was their neighbors that had been convinced by the Nazi party that the Jews were the enemy.We dive DEEP into this frightening behavior of "cancel culture" in this episode, beginning with The Mandalorian's Gina Carano.Be sure to hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or via email at FunctionallyDysfunctionalShow@gmail.com.
