    453 | Is Logic Killing Your Creativity? 

    453 | Is Logic Killing Your Creativity? 

    In this episode, I want to share some thoughts on logic and creativity and tie it back to our conscious and unconscious mind and some tips on how to shift this.

    In this episode, we discuss:
    1)  Our unconscious mind is responsible for 95-99 % of our thoughts, beliefs and this is ultimately connected to our actions.  We will not take action on something we don’t believe is possible. We also will always move towards what is familiar, even if that doesn't serve us or isn't part of our big vision moving forward. So is what we say we want and our actions on the same page?

    2) Our conscious mind is all about creativity, imagination, and the vision of what we want to bring to life.  So the idea, the download hits and then we get excited and then we fall into the how, the logic, and immediately our subconscious mind shows us the proof, what is familiar to us and before we know it we are back where we started.  Logic is blocking us from creating change.

    452 | What You Care About Is Hard To Hide

    452 | What You Care About Is Hard To Hide

    In this episode, this is a quick episode on how what we truly care about, what matters to us is evident.  Is it time to do a quick inventory of what you say is important and if it is in alignment with your actions and choices?  It isn’t that you are not capable. Are your choices in full alignment with what you say you care about? I have to refer to a quote from the Harry Potter series, “It is our choices that show us what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”


    In this episode, we discuss:
    1)  What if you take a quick inventory of what you say is important, what matters most to you and see if it is consistent in your life. Not from the results standpoint but from the actions standpoint. Attach no shame, judgment or criticism, just brutal honesty if you are in alignment or not.

    2) The things that matter to you are the things that you are saying yes and no to every single day. It’s impossible to hide. And even if you think you are hiding it from others, including yourself, you know deep down you aren’t. Start with this piece of honest and instead of thinking of all the things you have to reinvent, do or change, what if you focus on one simple habit that you know isn’t serving you?

    451 | Using The Subconscious Mind To Change Your Beliefs And Your Life with Lion Goodman

    451 | Using The Subconscious Mind To Change Your Beliefs And Your Life with Lion Goodman

    In this episode I am speaking with Lion Goodman is a transformational coach, author, healer and teacher. At the age of 26, Lion was shot in the head four times. This near-death experience kick-started his five decades of research into the nature of consciousness, developmental psychology, spirituality and healing.
    He created the Clear Beliefs Method of trauma-informed therapeutic coaching, which he has taught to more than 500 coaches, healers and therapists around the world. His training is accredited by both the International Coaching Federation and Association for Coaching.
    In a single session, Lion can eliminate a client’s limiting or negative belief from their subconscious mind, heal a childhood wound, or resolve a trauma from the past. The Clear Beliefs Method is a multidimensional approach to rapid, deep healing.
    Lion has taught workshops and training around the world, and authored 5 books, including Creating On Purpose, Clear Your Clients' Limiting Beliefs, and Menlightenment. He is a co-author of a new book, “Transforming Trauma,” with Joe Vitale, Marci Shimoff, John Demartini, and Christy Whitman.
    In this episode we discuss:
    1) Lion’s life work has been to study the realm of beliefs as they shape how we perceive reality. In order to be able to live our life to the fullest potential and overcome  challenges, we need to discover our limiting beliefs, the beliefs that foster long term transformation reside in the subconscious mind.

    2) Lion’s personal story, what he experienced at only 26 years old, and how he has been on a lifelong mission and purpose to help people get to the root of their limiting beliefs, to clear their limiting beliefs so they are free to live the life they are meant to live.  Trauma, the meaning of trauma, and the Clear Beliefs Method is shared as a multidimensional approach to rapid, deep healing.

    450 | Is Guilt Blocking Your Ability to Receive? 

    450 | Is Guilt Blocking Your Ability to Receive? 

    In this episode, this is a continuation of the previous episode on receiving. Today we are going to chat about guilt and how it is blocking us from receiving.  Giving and receiving are part of a karmic cycle, they go together, they are two halves of the same coin.  I would argue that you can’t do one without the other.  If we are not feeling worthy to receive it will block you from receiving anything available.


    In this episode, we discuss:
    1) Guilt is defined as “Shame is a focus on self; guilt is a focus on behavior.” Shame is, “I am bad.” Guilt is, “I did something bad.” ~Brene Brown

    2) Allowing ourselves to receive comes down to believing that we are worthy of receiving.  Worthiness or lack of worth is something that will not allow us to receive without the heavy feelings of guilt. 

    3) Can you give with gratitude and no expectations? This may affect your ability to receive with gratitude and if you can sit in the energy of receiving with gratitude, then there’s no room for guilt.

    449 | Are You Flexing Your Receiving Muscle? 

    449 | Are You Flexing Your Receiving Muscle? 

    In this episode, this is a shout out episode to anyone who needs to create a shift on the common phrase that it is “better to give than receive.” Yes, giving is an incredible feeling and we need more humans giving to each other without any expectation or attachments in return.  However we are creating this energy of not allowing ourselves to receive and not fully understanding how it is holding us back in our relationships, life and yes in business. Giving and receiving are part of a karmic cycle, they go together, they are two halves of the same coin.  I would argue that you can’t do one without the other.


    In this episode, we discuss:
    1) Let’s start with you are enough and it is safe for you to receive.  You are worthy of all the compliments, praise and financial abundance just because you are here. It is not weakness, it is not that you can’t do it on your own, it is that we are not meant to do this life alone and believing that we are leaves us in a state of isolation, despair and frustration. Prioritizing giving over receiving may feel like it keeps you safe and others at a safe distance yet this can become very isolating.

    2) Receiving is an exercise, an experience that might feel incredibly new and uncomfortable to you. It is actually a muscle that needs to be worked, to be flexed to become stronger. This can start as simple as buying yourself flowers, practicing gratitude for recognizing all that is available for you to receive and simply saying thank you without deflecting back on someone else. If you respond out of guilt you are negating that person’s compliment.

    3) If it is so important why don’t we do it more?  Childhood upbringing, being told that is selfish to receive or a sign of weakness to even ask for help. Receiving also creates connections that can leave us feeling open, vulnerable and exposed.  That is scary!

    448 | The Story That Made You with David Wood

    448 | The Story That Made You with David Wood

    In this episode I am speaking with David, a former consulting actuary to Fortune 100 companies. He built the world’s largest coaching business, becoming #1 on Google for life coaching and coaching thousands of hours in 12 countries around the globe.
    As well as helping others, David is no stranger to overcoming challenges himself, having survived a full collapse of his paraglider and a fractured spine, witnessing the death of his sister at age seven, anxiety and depression, and a national Gong Show! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgKwAJieQes)
    He helps business owners and leaders become the badass leaders people want to follow,
    creating more authenticity, connection, confidence, and revenue.

    In this episode we discuss:
    1) We all experience a fear of loss, respect, yet we don’t have a roadmap of how to move through those emotions, to overcome them or even to share them.

    2) David shares his roadmap, his journey that led to the premise for his book, “Mouse in the Room”

    3) David shared how we can learn to become clear on our past; decide if this is a mouse worth naming; then learn how to disarm the mouse and share in our own way, followed by how we can be more transparent and honest with our lessons with others.
