    Differentiating Between Soul Whispers & Ego Desires

    Differentiating Between Soul Whispers & Ego Desires

    "Each human is unique. Each soul is unique, and each soul does have a purpose, and that purpose goes back to the individual soul's experiences and where there are opportunities for additional expansion and learning."

    This week's guest is Jennifer Spor, an Akashic records channel, a soul-led business mentor, a strategist, and host of the Awaken Your Purpose podcast. Jennifer is a guide for Conscious Leaders who are here to illuminate the way for others through the awakening and embodiment of their sacred wisdom and God-given gifts. 
    When she isn’t in her business contributing to raising the planet's consciousness, she loves being out in nature, going on new adventures with her husband, snuggling with her two cats, and diving into all things personal and spiritual development!
    In this week's episode, we explore: 
    What are the Akashic records, and what their existence means for who we are? Exploring the soul purpose of having a human experience. The importance of duality in shaping our awareness. The role of societal programming in creating limits. Differentiating between the whispers of the soul and the desires of the ego."We are a soul having a human experience...  Being human isn't the epicenter of who we are. We are energy in its purest form."
    Defining the four clairs to understand how your intuition communicates.Staying stuck and "arguing our limitations." Understanding your purpose so you can fulfill it. What our relationship with money is supposed to be. How Jennifer journals. And more...I loved this conversation because of it's dance between spirituality and practicality. Jennifer is generous with her wisdom and shares potent techniques and mindsets to help you 'awaken on purpose,' activate your intuition, and confidently differentiate between soul whispers and egoic desires.

    A Journaling Technique That Boosts Self-Love

    A Journaling Technique That Boosts Self-Love

    "Self-love is a journey for most of us. It's not a destination because - as with anything in life - there are always opportunities and experiences that we can engage with to expand the way we experience self-love."

    In this week's episode, we focus on a journaling technique that can elevate self-love.

    Tune in now to explore: 
    What self-love is and what it looks like.The correlation between self-love and how we show up in the world.  Why a lack of self-love can spark people-pleasing tendencies.  Understanding that self-love isn't selfish. The link between self-love and authentic service. "Self-love is saying positive things to yourself. It's having that ability to check the inner critic, so it doesn't drag you down." 
    Why more is better when practicing list journaling. What to do if the inner critic shows up when compiling your list? Why list journaling works best when you sit with it. Remember how loving words can elevate and inspire. What would happen if the self-love switch was activated all over the world? And more...It takes courage to cultivate self-love -- especially if you've been shut down in the past and told that you are bragging or a big head. Allowing yourself to create a self-love list can open the gateway to more courage, confidence, and appreciation for who you are. 

    What's more, the more self-love you feel, the more loving you can be towards other people (because you have more love to give). 
    This week's journaling prompt.
    Write a list of things you love about yourself?

    Expansion activities:
    Ask yourself WHY you've put your answers on your list.
    Notice how you feel as you add to your list.

    A Three-Part Journaling Process To Know Yourself

    A Three-Part Journaling Process To Know Yourself

    "Spending time alone helps us silence those external influences and get better at distinguishing between all the outside noise and our inner voice. In turn, you can get clearer and clearer on knowing what you really want." 

    What is it like to walk the path of curiously discovering who we are? This episode is inspired by this cool quote from the leadership coach and bestselling author, Robin Sharma.

    "The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, talents, your dreams is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal."

     Tune in now to discover how you can know yourself through Sharma's three suggested steps: 
    Be comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal. In this week's episode, we explore: 
    Why feeling comfortable with yourself expands your capacity to hold and accept more of who you are. Dialling down the all-consuming external noise to reclaim space in our heads.Building awareness of the factors that shape our decision-making. The bubbling up that happens when we sit in silence.Why this distractible age keeps us stuck in surface-level thinking..    "The more we can hear our true self, the more we can make decisions that are aligned with what's going to make us happy." 
    The link between silence and surfacing our individual wisdom. Journaling as a side-kick for maximising alone time. When you make your thoughts tangible, you reflect YOU back at you. How loving scrutiny is a gateway to deeper insight. Managing our expectations around journaling. And more... Journaling is a powerful tool for knowing who we are. It's an important journey. The more we know who we are, the more we can shape and shift our lives into the direction that can bring us the most joy, fulfillment, and connection with our best selves.

    Enhancing Intimacy Through Your Journaling

    Enhancing Intimacy Through Your Journaling

    "Can you trust someone with your heart, your visibility, your realness, rawness, imperfections, and wounds - or do you need to build a wall and lock away the key ?"

    Intimacy defines a feeling of closeness and deep connection. Through intimacy, we can feel seen, loved, appreciated, and accepted. In some ways, intimacy offers external feedback on our value and worth. Through intimacy, we collect proof that we matter. 

    As humans, we desire feelings of intimacy. We want to be fully seen by selected other people. 

    In this episode, we explore how your journal can be used as a tool to enhance the intimacy you experience in your life.  
    Here's a taste of what we explore:  
    What is intimacy, and why do we seek it?What it takes to be open to intimacy so you can invite it and enhance it. Why safety is an enabler of intimacy. Understanding how trust influences our ability to be seen and be intimate.  Deciding to be intimate with who we are."Often, we can go into experiences knowing how it's going to unfold because of expectations and predictions... But what if you could drop the story and just be in the moment? Would that allow for more intimacy?" 
    Journaling as a tool for enhancing intimacy. The correlation with how we see ourselves and the intimacy we feel. The role of discernment as we learn to know ourselves. Putting yourself under loving scrutiny. Taking responsibility for your feelings through journaling.And more... Your journal is a place where you can know yourself - and there is a correlation between knowing yourself and the intimacy you can invite into your life.

    In this episode, we explore this concept in more detail.  Check it out!

    How To Reflect In Your Journal

    How To Reflect In Your Journal

    "If you can create a relationship with your journal where it becomes your trusted space where you can feel into the depths of what wants to be expressed, Journaling - as a practice - WILL take you back to the truth of who you are."

    Journaling as a tool, a practice, a ritual, a creator of sacred space is miraculous.

    Bring courage, creativity, and curiosity to the blank page and you'll open a receptacle that has the capacity to reveal YOUR truth back to you.

    Buried within is a voice that knows.
    A voice that's rich with wisdom & insight for these times.
    A voice that's ready to be heard.
    And a voice that will show itself to you freely when you invite it onto the blank page.

    This week, we're exploring the power of REFLECTION as a tool to crack you open so you can extract the unique wisdom your life is teaching you.

    Tune in now!   

    In this week's episode, we explore: 
    How your journal can reveal deep, potent truths. Coming back to your power through your relationship with the blank page.It's time to HEAR YOURSELF. Let your journal reveal what you have to say.   An invitation to the part of you that's ready for more depth, complexity, and juiciness. The confronting nature of facing our shadow. "There's so much power in looking backward to create a springboard that propels you forwards"
    Why hindsight is a quickstep to wisdom. Questions to ask to reflect in your journal. With journaling, we never finish where we start. Following the flow of the unexpected tangents.  And more! It's time for some introspection, quiet contemplation, and deep listening.

    In our distractible world, our attention is fragmented and easily 'stolen' away. If you allow it, your journal provides that still, calm, quiet space where you can reconnect with yourself and surface your truth.

    Let's get to writing.

    This week's journaling prompt.
    What is life teaching you about yourself and how to live the life you want?
