EP 241: Mindset for Success with Andy Simon, Principal Clarinet of Hong Kong Philharmonic
Regardless of where we are on the globe, humans come across the same type of challenges that can affect our mindset if we let it. The key is to take a difficult moment or experience and see the gift in it, pull out the good from it, and create something magical with it. This is what our special guest, Andrew Michael Simon did with his infamous Andy’s Licorice Talks— a bizarre and wonderful way he created a movement of clarinet players from all over the globe. Join Nick and Kisma for Episode 241 of Illumination Academy and their Special Celebrity Guest for a success mindset. Here's where you can connect with Andy:
EP 240: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 3
I always love it when Kisma goes Cosmic. Today was one of those days. And you might be wondering how this is going to help you exist around other humans (part 3 of our latest series). But being about to see others from the Cosmic level changes everything. It puts everything in its right place and takes off a huge amount of pressure to be anything other than exactly who you are. Existing with other humans is part of the human experience. If you follow the simple instructions at the end of this episode, not only will you have more ease and confidence, you'll also open the door for profound healing and compassion. Atma Namaste!
EP 239: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 2
Being around other people isn't always easy. We might be feeling insecure, or comparing ourselves to others. Or maybe feeling misunderstood, like no one will "get" you. Some of us are just very uncomfortable in unfamiliar situations. We feel you. And I know that the episode we have to share today will hit home. You'll learn three simple words that will give you everything you need to step in as your Authentic Self with more confidence and make wonderful connections. P.S. Thanks to Brené Brown for putting these three words together in such an amazing way, and inspiring this conversation.
EP 238: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 1
+++++++++++++++ People are weird. Sometimes I just look a them and think, “Wow. I just…Wow…” And I’ll bet they think the same thing about me. And you for that matter, dear listener. Because we all live in our own little world, but we also have to deal with all the people we encounter- who are living in their own little worlds too. And sure, you can judge and criticize and ridicule all you want, but what if there were a better way? In this episode of Illumination Podcast, Kisma and I want to share how you can make a simple and instant shift that would turn the whole circus on its head and make dealing with other people a thousand times easier.
EP 237: Inspired by The Four Agreements. Part 5
Honestly, we could talk about The Four Agreements all day. If you've never read the book, we highly recommend bumping it to the top of your list. And after that, make sure you check out the follow-up...The FIFTH agreement. Who knew there was a fifth one? Who knew we even needed one?! Spoiler alert: It's brilliant. And we definitely did need this one. In fact, it's especially relevant in the information age because it will help you separate truth from lies. It will also help you connect with others with compassion and understanding rather than frustration. This is one you don't want to miss. Listen in to the Fifth Agreement... Be Skeptical, But Learn To Listen! P.S. If you don't have a copy (I've gone through probably a dozen over the years) here's a link.
EP 236: Inspired by The Four Agreements. Part 4
It seems simple enough. You probably learned it in kindergarten. But somewhere along the way, things started to slip.. Just a little at first. Maybe to save some time, or just because you got distracted. And every time you slip, it erodes a little more of your self-confidence. The self-judgmental chatter starts to ratchet up. The power of this one simple agreement is truly profound. And while it is simple to say, "Always do your best," actually doing it is another story. To stick to it, you'll need to understand ONE thing first... Join us as we talk about this pinnacle agreement from Don Miguel Ruiz's iconic book. Listen now. P.S. If you don't have a copy (I've gone through probably a dozen over the years) here's a link.
This podcast is so to my taste!
Kisma and Nick bring together a unique blend of elated spiritual wisdom, profound grounding, practical magic and soothing voices. They are the first people that got me listening, really listening, to these teachings. Opening my door and implementing has been the missing piece, the “click.” Beyond grateful to have such access.
I LOVE Nick and Kisma on the Illumination Podcast! Their dynamism is so apparent and engaging, and they cover the spectrum of personal development topics in a really beautiful and grounded way. I highly recommend checking them out!
