    Building A Life That Nourishes Your Soul

    Building A Life That Nourishes Your Soul

    "We keep doing good...thinking it will make us good."  Those are the words written on an index card laying on the desk in our living room.  
    This one idea is the fundamental flaw that upends our cultural compass, sends us to bed both exhausted and sick, and keeps us in racial and religious bondage.
    In a culture of love, we're beginning to experience the power of a different reality.  Truth tells us we don't become good by doing good; rather, we become good because of what we trust and receive--in relationships.
    When we trust and receive:
    strength, we become strong.
    protection, we become protectors.
    safety in relationships, we become safe people in relationships.
    And, when we trust and receive:
    fear as a motivator, we become anxious.
    shame, we become afraid to fail.
    trivial pursuits, we live meaningless lives.
    Join us on this episode to find the hope LOVE offers for moving us out of the stress cycle that fear wants us stuck in. Linger in these TAKEAWAYS that remind us to nourish our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls:
    "Wellness is not a state of being.  It is not a state of mind.  It is a state of action.  The cure for burnout is not self-care.  It's all of us caring for each other." (A quote from Emily Nagoski.) A life of love happens when we choose the experiences, the food and drink, the risks and choices that love offers...instead of the experiences, the food and drink, the risks and choices that fear offers.  So many of the choices that fear offers have become false traditions--and addictions, and have, therefore built a culture of fear.  With collective intentionality, we can change the world and build a culture of love. In a culture of love, we can learn to ask ourselves:  "Do I really need more? Or do I need something different?"  We can learn to nourish our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls...with love.  We can love one another in these ways, too. We mention these resources in this episode:

    MIRACLES--A Conversation With Sports Psychologist David Cook

    MIRACLES--A Conversation With Sports Psychologist David Cook

    It doesn't seem reasonable that we'd have a conversation with a top sports psychologist and peak performance coach when our topic this week is MIRACLES and the power of LOVE.
    It's NOT reasonable.  It's a miracle!  
    David Cook is a speaker, consultant, coach, author, and film-maker in the field of Sport and Performance Psychology.  He served as "Mental Training Coach" for the San Antonio Spurs from 1996 – 2004 that included two World Championships. 
    Golf Digest (2013) named him one of the “Top 10 Mental Game Experts” in the world of golf.  He has coached several of the Tour’s top players. 
    His message for our LOVE IS FEARLESS community is FREEDOM from fear.  It's the same message he shares with his clients--who win!  David is a great storyteller. He is generous with us in this episode and we are honored.
    Join us now to connect the dots between LOVE and fearless FREEDOM and find real strength in these TAKEAWAYS:
    Building a culture of love requires us to make room for miracles.  Miracles are those supernatural things that change us from what we were--weak and wounded, to what we can be--strong and healthy.  LOVE always makes us strong. "The battle has begun, but remember, it is not your battle.  See His Face, Feel His Presence, Trust His Love."  (A quote from Golf's Sacred Journey--The Sequel to Seven Days in Utopia by David Cook.) Building a culture of love invites us to be on the lookout for miracles--and call them what they are.  Miracles are unreasonable.  They are real experiences that we can't manufacture on our own.  Miracles are the byproduct of trust and love--and they remind us we're not the only player in the arena.  LOVE is here!

    Why Laughter Is The Best Medicine

    Why Laughter Is The Best Medicine

    Every week we're offering new discoveries about the power of love, how we can practically CHOOSE LOVE, and how we can become aware of the ways we're choosing fear--without even knowing it.
    L stands for laughter in the LIF alphabet and it may be more powerful than we think.  
    As living beings, we literally vibrate with energetic frequency.  The body resonates at a frequency between 62 to 72 Hz when healthy.  Disease starts at 58 Hz. Death begins at 25 Hz.  And, there is a good reason for the expression "scared to death" because the frequency of fear is 19 Hz.
    When we experience low-frequency emotions, it's important to know how to return to a healthy state to protect against chronic health problems. The frequency of laughter is 270 Hz and the frequency of love is 528 Hz.  Laughter is indeed great medicine!
    Join us for this fun episode about the power of laughter and linger in these TAKEAWAYS:
    When your children tune out anything that smells like a lecture--laughter is a great way to reconnect. Laughter is a fun way to add the power of LOVE to the atmosphere.  Ridicule makes someone else pay for our laughter. Instead of adding energy to relationships, everyone loses. LOVE is a force of energy.  It is so much more than a feeling or an emotion.  LOVE is a POWER.  Every time we risk what LOVE requires, we unleash a force in the universe that must be reckoned with.  It is impossible for LOVE to not have an effect...for good.

    How Does Fear Make Us Weak?

    How Does Fear Make Us Weak?

    Welcome to the ROARING 20s!  We hope this decade will be remembered as the time in history when LOVE roared louder than fear.  Together, there is great hope.
    Most new year's resolutions involve self-discipline and are motivated by a lack of satisfaction with life as we're experiencing it right now. 
    CHOOSING LOVE OVER FEAR is a resolution that involves more self-awareness than self-discipline--and here's something we're willing to guarantee by the end of 2020:
    When you become fluent in love the way you are now fluent in fear, you're going to notice a change in yourself and your relationships.  The healthy parts of you are going to get stronger.  The weak parts are going to get stronger, too.  That's a benefit of being really KNOWN.
    We are created for INTIMACY and IMPACT and we can experience this full and free life in a culture of love.  Join us in this first LIF episode of 2020, and look clearly at these TAKEAWAYS:
    LOVE can't help us if we don't let others close enough to do two things:  1.  Have real conversations and ask for help.  2. Have real conversations and give someone we trust permission to speak into our blindspots and protect us from the lies we've believed for a long time. FEAR fights for and protects CONTROL.  LOVE fights for and protects FREEDOM.  We must learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of a culture of fear and respond by intentionally building a culture of love. Fear will roar loudly in 2020, and we can choose to be part of a stronger roar.  This decade can be remembered as a time in history when love roared louder than fear.  We can orchestrate a decade of roaring 20s that leaves our country, its citizens, and the world a stronger place--instead of a place made vulnerable by the constant attacks of fear.

    The Best New Year's Resolution of 2020

    The Best New Year's Resolution of 2020

    One resolution is all you need for the new year and the new decade.  Imagine your life next year at this time...without fear.
    Most of us don't realize it's possible to live a life without fear, where love removes anxiety, anger, and shame from every conversation, every challenge, every decision.
    We are not people who lack faith.  We are all depending on something or someone.  The question for all of us in the new year is:  Are we depending on LOVE or something less?  LOVE is our greatest source of strength.
    In this episode, we share 5 practical reasons to depend on LOVE instead of fear in the new year, and we offer these TAKEAWAYS:
    Many of us are not yet in the habit of sorting love choices from fear choices.  Once we can recognize what love looks like and what fear offers us, we can help each other choose love over fear. Sorting through our fears and insecurities is essential to the process of maturity.  Fear puts lies and insecurities in positions of power.  LOVE me offers the protection I need to keep insecurity from determining my next step. When trouble comes in 2020--and it will--let's build the habit of choosing LOVE instead of fear as our dance partner. Thank you for joining us on LOVE IS FEARLESS in 2019. We wish you a very merry Christmas and a blessed new year!  Please keep sharing LIF with your friends and on social media.  Together, there is great hope.

    Choosing JOY Instead of Fear

    Choosing JOY Instead of Fear

    LOVE or FEAR will be our source of strength today and our bodies will develop reliance and a comfort level with one or the other. In our LIF community, we're learning what fear looks like and sounds like, and we're learning to respond to these signs and symptoms with love.
    In this episode, Doug shares about a time in his life when he was afraid and living DISCONNECTED from safe and meaningful relationships. DISCONNECTED is the LOVE IS FEARLESS contrast to JOY. 
    JOY describes life by design--in a culture of love.  Join us to hear a part of Doug's story and the real transformation that LOVE offers...when we trust it. Together, there is great hope.
     
    We share these TAKEAWAYs in this episode:
    We discover JOY and build JOY strength in relationships of trust.  Our LOVE IS FEARLESS definition of JOY is "it's good to be me, here with you." When it's not good to be me, here with you--our lives are adversely affected by the power of fear instead of transformed by the power of love. The ability to "return to JOY" from every unpleasant emotion is the hallmark of mental health.  We learn to take this healing journey when we stay connected in relationships with people who are mature and who love us well, especially when we struggle and when we have experienced trauma. LOVE is the source of strength we're designed to live with--not FEAR.  LOVE supports our immune systems and protects our mental health.  It is vital that we recognize the signs and symptoms of living in a culture of FEAR and respond by helping each other experience a culture of LOVE instead. Keep choosing JOY instead of FEAR, friends.
