    My 6 Step Integration Model: The Essential Process For Growth

    My 6 Step Integration Model: The Essential Process For Growth

    Welcome back Freedom Designers! This week, I am so excited to share with you my 6 Step Model for Integration. Are you struggling to make changes in your life even when you know what steps to take? When you live in that limbo between knowing and action, it is frustrating; which is why I am going to guide you through my process of integration! You cannot change your life with someone else’s method. I will show you how you can slow down and digest information, whatever it may be, to give yourself the opportunity to really understand if and how it applies to your own life. This will help you develop your own path and ultimately lead you to a life in alignment with your true self. 
     
    Key Takeaways:
    Knowledge without integration causes frustration  [2:00] Evasion and isolation is a natural consequence of unintegrated information [3:40] Step 1: Assimilation: Create space to savor and digest the experience [4:40] Step 2: Contemplation: Without assumptions, invite god to reveal the meaning to you [7:38] Step 3: Interpretation: Define the experience and it will become your reality [8:33] Step 4: Application: Question if it applies to you and if it will benefit your own life [9:27] Step 5: Liberation: Abandon patterns that do not  align with your integrated knowledge [10:26] Step 6: Celebration: Honor your transformation and take pride in your prosperity [11:37]  
    Memorable Quotes:
    “Many people go straight to applying it and I think that they are missing a huge opportunity to go deeper with the information and think about how it applies to their life first before they start to apply these methods or techniques or tricks that they’ve learned from books.” [2:50]
     
    “When you integrate information you feel inspired, you feel creative because you’re applying it to your own life!” [4:19]
     
    “If you’re just doing something just because someone told you to, you don’t have the total buy in that would normally be required for you to do it. You need to anchor into your why and really understand what is the benefit for you and your specific life.”[10:08]
     
    “I believe that the more you celebrate the more things that you have to celebrate.” [11:47]

    Tools to Keep You in the Present Moment with Adora Crystal Evans

    Tools to Keep You in the Present Moment with Adora Crystal Evans

    It was such a pleasure to be able to speak with and be interviewed by Adora Crystal Evans on her “The Rich Queens Summit.” Adora Crystal Evans is an elite super connector and  intuition growth expert. She has taken her expertise in manifestation and published her book “Majestic Money” and “Majestic Money Playbook” to help women develop their femme manifesting. She is a talented entrepreneur and co-founder of “My Body Legacy” a health and fitness nutritional brand. Her insight will change how you approach your business and will help you flourish in ways you could not imagine. 
    During my interview, we discussed the toxic positivity in our culture and how gratitude can act as a coping mechanism when it is not balanced with presence. Our bodies are intelligent, we have the ability to heal ourselves but with so many distractions we use our power on things that are outside of us. Through my own story I hope to show you simple tools that will help you honor your energy and really begin to understand yourself instead of focusing on outside sources for validation.
    Key Takeaways:
    Carissa’s Story: What is REAL is relatable,  [2:55] How do I heal myself?  [4:30] It takes a village to empower and support a leader [7:30] Manifestation: Be willing to move the energy of your trauma [10:22] Toxic Positivity: Utilizing gratitude as a coping mechanism [12:50] Honoring the totality of your energy: Who am I without constant action [16:30] The invitation to lean in: bring awareness to the moment   [23:00] Presence: opening your eyes to how mystical and magic we are [35:00]

    Memorable Quotes:
    “I think curiosity makes a really good leader” [5:30] -Carissa Johnsen
     
    “I have seen some of the richest families in the world be so “Joy” poor. They were just so robbed of their well being and their connection with their family. So I realized, some of the people who have the biggest influence or biggest businesses are the people who need, sometimes, the most support” [7:10] -Carissa Johnsen
     
    “When you've learned so much about yourself, the world, humanity and programing,  the natural 
    evolution is to be of service.”   [8:40] -Carissa Johnsen
     
    “I was only able to feel anger and happiness, there was no middle spectrum. So I realized that there is something really important here because I'm capped.” [14:23] -Carissa Johnsen
     
    “I was outsourcing my power to things outside of myself.” [15:56] -Carissa Johnsen



    “Even if you’re in momentum with what you love, you’re in momentum with what you , a year ago, loved. So if you don't take time to calibrate and reassess, you can end up 80 living a 25 year olds vision of life, without the wisdom and authentic connection to who you are now.”          [21:40] -Adora Crystal Evans
     
    “We are all co-creators, We are god expressed in different and  unique versions and every thought, every action is creating in the universe around us always, in other peoples lives and in our own lives but when you’re so distracted with what you want to buy, what you want consume, who thought of you…then all your energy is scattered.” [38:15] -Adora Crystal Evans

    5 Tips on How to Navigate Comparing Yourself to Other People

    5 Tips on How to Navigate Comparing Yourself to Other People

    In today’s world of constant noise it is essential to prioritize yourself and genuinely value your own time. I feel we are all being bombarded by marketing and constant pressure to compare ourselves to people online who are more “successful” than us without ever pausing to have gratitude for our own achievements. I find that without consciously choosing to remove myself from social media, from my phone and actually making it difficult for others to have constant access to me, I become susceptible to automatic thoughts. In today’s episode I share how you can make small changes in your habits and perception so you can stop feeling pressure to compare yourself and step into a new mindset of gratitude, hope and abundance. 
     
    Key takeaways
    [2:04] Comparison 
    [2:40] The internet and the constant noise bombardement 
    [4:07] Tip 1:Stay grounded! Log out and Turn off ALL notifications Honor your time
    [6:30] Three levels of  believe: Core, intermittent and automatic thought
    [7:10] Tip 2: Do not use your phone during the first and last hour of the day
    [8:16] Three brain states: survival, emotional and executive brain state. 
    [9:33] Tip 3: Be mindful of how you utilize language.
    [11:30] Emotional intelligence: Notice, Name, Touch Talk
    [12:11] Tip 4: Celebrate the other person by shifting into gratitude.
    [13:32] Tip 5: Success for one is HOPE for all!
     
    Memorable quotes
    “The quality of our life is really related to the quality of questions that we ask ourselves.” [9:40]
     
    “If you're resisting the comparison, if you're not bringing awareness to it, if you’re not consciously shifting it you are going to unconsciously accept it. [11:02]
     
    “The reason why you’re comparing yourself to them is because a part of you wants that and a part of you also knows you can have it and you can create that and you can also become that!”  [12:30]
     
    “Somebody else’s strengths, Somebody else’s abilities does not mean that those are your weaknesses. It doesn't mean that you are at a deficit because they have different skills and abilities.” [14:28]

    5 Steps To Find Out If You're On The Right Path

    5 Steps To Find Out If You're On The Right Path

    How do we actually know if you are on the right path?
    In today’s episode I address the paralyzing question that we all ask ourselves while on our spiritual journey; “Am I on the right path?” The simple answer is that there is no way to know for sure, but I offer 5 steps to check in with yourself to open communication with your inner voice. Building an awareness of our body’s reaction to our lifestyle and building an understanding of our true selves through that awareness is something that I focus on throughout this episode.  
     
    Key takeaways
    Are you waking up passionate about what you're doing? [2:18] More days than not Are you a little uncomfortable? [4:14] Is there a voice of calmness? [5:23] Things will start aligning in your life. [8:05] You accept that you do not know [9:10]


    Memorable Quotes
     
    “My anxiety was not necessarily a mental health issue, it was my body signaling to me that I was not in congruence with my heart, my spirit, my  path, my soul. [3:24]
     
    “The law of non-intervention, which is If you don’t ask for guidance from your higher power, from divine intelligence,  you don't always necessarily receive it.The presence of god is always there but sometimes you have to ask for it” [6:30]



    “What is the path that I am on right now? This  trajectory? If I wasn't to change anything, is that in alignment[, is that my truth? Is that what I want? And If its not, this is the time to course correct.” 12:38]
     
    “You get to forgive yourself for not being there” [13:00]

    Overcoming Your Upper Limiting Beliefs

    Overcoming Your Upper Limiting Beliefs

    Experiencing success can uproot the ideas we have of ourselves. We often question if we are worthy, capable, or even if we are doing the right thing. This process of questioning has been labeled many different things but simply comes down to choice and perspective. Using my own experience, I demonstrate how we can liberate ourselves from limiting beliefs and how this change in consciousness can help us find the path of least resistance.
     
    Key Takeaways:
    Upper Limiting [4:18] Choice Point [6:28] Availability Heuristic [7:43] The path of least resistance [9:34] Know if you are on the right path [11:35]  
    Memorable Quotes:
    “Moving through this doesn't actually have to be hard. I’m starting to really play around with the idea that I don’t believe in hard work, I just believe in work. I believe you can either make it enjoyable or you can make it hard or it can just be work” [6:54]

    “You might make choices based on your past experience instead of what’s true for you or what could be true for you in this moment” [8:07]

    “I chose in that moment to say; Yes, I acknowledge that I am not feeling well but I am going to use this as an opportunity to go deeper with my belief that I am reaching new levels of consciousness and expanding my capacity” [8:51]

SB Moses ,

This is one of my favorite shows to SHARE

Carissa is just one of those magnetic voices for internal change and growth! I know she typically teaches women, at least I think but I find myself binge listening to these shows more than one soo many nuggets in each of them, and I listen to a lot of these shows.

If you want to be the hero who gets the “THANK YOU FOR SENDING ME THAT PODCAST, changed my life” share this show. One of the best shows in my opinion!

Thanks Carissa!

Frf girl ,

Always pulls me back into & amplifies my power

Carissa changes the meaning of what it means to be an empowered leader. She shares the most potent and nuanced tools and guidance for how to come back to YOURself. YOUR truth. YOUR power. Your power was there all along. But Carissa has such a gift with words and storytelling to help you reconnect and to connect more deeply with your power and inner intelligence. She also has the best, most informed spiritual leaders as guests every week. I always learn and take away so much. -Avery
