    EP51 Doubting Your Doubts with Melissa Palazzo Hart

    EP51 Doubting Your Doubts with Melissa Palazzo Hart

    This episode is an insightful conversation with entrepreneur, coach, and Rewilder Guide Melissa Palazzo Hart about doubting our doubts and ultimately letting go. We also get to hear Melissa’s powerful poem which perfectly encapsulates the feeling of finally accepting ourselves as we are in the here and now.

    Melissa shares her experiences with self-doubt and self-esteem issues, despite all the success and happiness in her life. One milestone and success point after another, she continued to look for the perfect pieces for her life to fall all in line.

    Melissa’s emotions can be felt as she recounts her journey towards acceptance. She is a charismatic speaker able to pull our heartstrings, make us laugh, and help us see the light amid all the darkness and doubt in our minds.

    Rohini and Melissa dive deep into the importance of acceptance. Melissa shares how accepting ourselves as we are can give us more freedom to truly grow into full potential — to have the courage to explore and experiment. 

    As Rohini pointed out, knowing who we are allows us to come to a place of authentic empowerment. It becomes the foundation from which possibilities arise. 

    By recognizing our insecure thinking and doubting our doubts, we start to hear the voice inside ourselves that says everything is perfect as it is now. When we pay less attention to our negative thoughts and accept that we are good enough, we start to open ourselves up to possibilities in all areas of life.

    EP50 Our Stories of Neurodiversity with Angus and Rohini Ross

    EP50 Our Stories of Neurodiversity with Angus and Rohini Ross

    Every relationship includes two people often with different neurological orientations living in their separate realities. In this episode, Rohini and Angus share how they navigate neurodiversity in their relationship. Their brains work very differently, and they have different strengths and weaknesses. You will get to hear some of their hilarious escapades.

    Here are some teasers, Rohini lacks coordination when it comes to physical activities, while Angus is a gifted athlete and loves sports. Rohini loves to talk, while Angus needs time to organize his thoughts and says much less. During their conversations, Angus sometimes has to connect the dots due to Rohini leaving out crucial details because she’s already hit the ground running, and Angus can’t always read her mind.

    Their neurodiversity is even apparent in how they start their days. Rohini usually wakes up first and is running on all cylinders. Angus needs time to warm up and ease into the day. When it comes to finances and business development, Rohini is the visionary, and Angus excels in creativity and artistic talents. They are both, however, very intuitive, and empathic. There they share common ground.

    The key for relationships is to understand and respect the separate realities and neurodiversity of our partners.  Relationships are not about fixing your partner or changing them. They are for opening our hearts and celebrating differences and diversity. 

    We, humans, are always looking to experience greater balance and harmony. With an open heart and open mind, love and understanding are natural by-products that support couples in finding common ground and experiencing more balance and harmony in their relationships.

    Neurodiversity does not have to be a challenge for couples when it is understood. Embracing neurodiversity allows couples to see how to complement each other and it brings newness and fresh perspectives to relationships.

    One thing Rohini and Angus can wholeheartedly say is because of their differences, they are never bored in their relationship.

    This episode explores:
    Navigating neurodiversity in relationships Understanding and finding humor in each other’s strengths and weaknessesFinding balance and harmony for a happier and healthier relationship

    EP49 Following My Deeper Wisdom with Alvin Dawkins

    EP49 Following My Deeper Wisdom with Alvin Dawkins

    This is a beautiful conversation with recording artist and Rewilding Guide, Alvin Dawkins, about the unshakable truth of who we are at our core despite our circumstances. We also get a special sneak preview reading from Alvin's forthcoming memoir, From Prison to Purpose, which chronicles Alvin's birth in prison to his being adopted and growing up in Alabama during the harrowing Jim Crow era, to his discovery of music and his true spiritual essence. 
     
    Alvin reminds us that no matter what we've been through, the wisdom behind life -- this creative energy force that infuses us all, remains intact no matter what. Not only is it intact, but it is guiding us, and we get to be part of it. He likens this truth to learning the mechanics of music, or an instrument so that we can play it -- but we then do better when we release the mechanical knowledge and become the instrument. That's when the music plays through us. The same can be said of the spiritual energy we are all a part of. For Alvin, music was the most powerful gateway that led him to embody his truth.
     
    For many years Alvin battled with depression and distorted self-limiting beliefs. Through his journey of finding freedom from depression and his many "internal prisons," he realized so many people are still trapped living in their own prisons, not living from their authentic selves, and he wrote his upcoming memoir to show others that it's possible to break free and to point readers to the truth of they are. As Angus points out, one of the best ways we can point people toward their true nature is by telling our own stories, recounting our own insights, so that people might start to see the truth and possibility in finding the same freedom.

    Alvin Dawkins is a Rewilder Guide. He's also a jazz bassist, composer, songwriter, and recording artist. He's author of the forthcoming book From Prison to Purpose, which is a memoir that chronicles his birth in prison, and being adopted and growing up in Alabama during the ugliness of Jim Crow segregation, during the heart of the civil rights movement, to freeing himself from depression and finding his calling.

    EP48 Do We Have Freewill? with Angus and Rohini Ross

    EP48 Do We Have Freewill? with Angus and Rohini Ross

    Inspired by remarks Tanner Zagarino made in our previous episode, we wanted to explore the themes of personal responsibility and free will.

    When talking about how we generate our experience of life from the inside out, this may sound like we are saying that we have control over what we experience, since it's dependent on our internal perceptions. But while it is true that our experience is created from the thinking we identify with in the moment, it's not true that we are in control of what we experience, any more than we're in control of what thoughts will pop into our mind. 

    Rohini had a massive insight about free will years ago at a training. She sees that all we can do is our best with the understanding that we have and since we don't have control over our understanding there is no free will. This took a huge amount of pressure off of her and gave her a deeper experience of inner freedom that brings out the best in her. 

    While Angus, following an Anglican upbringing, had a hard time reckoning with the idea of no free will. He was brought up to believe he needed to use his free will for good and to get into heaven. This was indoctrinated into his psyche growing up. His fear was that if people have no free will, they'll just live by their worst instincts and present their worst version of themselves. 

    Rohini counters this with her personal experience of being more gentle on herself, and therefore in her relationships too. When she doesn't think she needs to improve herself or be better, she is naturally kinder and more compassionate. 

    Angus sees how the impersonal does not contain free will, that free will is a construct and therefore just part of our conditioned thinking. He feels he still has more consciousness rungs to climb in this arena. As we all do with an infinite understanding.

    This episode explores:

    EP47 Freedom to Be Me with Tanner Zagarino

    EP47 Freedom to Be Me with Tanner Zagarino

    We had a great time speaking with one of Angus's long-term clients, and actor, Tanner Zagarino about the impact this understanding has had on his career, relationships, and wellbeing.

    In his early days working with Angus, Tanner experienced a significant shift in understanding after Angus helped him to see that the flow state emerges naturally from being present. In that moment Tanner reflected on how all the times he feels most at ease, and happiest is when he is fully present with not much on his mind. Seeing the common denominator in this allowed him to leverage this understanding to help him with his acting craft and in his relationships.

    Tanner's excitement about this understanding is palpable. We both enjoyed sharing in his joy for the life-changing spiritual truths we discuss on this show. He speaks beautifully and profoundly about how we can experience flow states like driving by trees. We can let our thoughts pass without having to get caught up in the details.

    Tanner also speaks to how once we start experiencing more flow states in our life, it can be easy to get down on ourselves when we lose them. It is important not to use this understanding against ourselves and recognize we are all on the learning curve of waking up and being present. This learning is infinite so we can relax and be grateful for what we see knowing more will always be revealed.

    EP46 Having Room for Humanness in Relationships with Angus & Rohini Ross

    EP46 Having Room for Humanness in Relationships with Angus & Rohini Ross

    Making room for our partner's humanness is important for the health of relationships. It is helpful to understand the inner workings of the nervous system that are at play when we and our partners are caught up so we can see their psychological innocence. Realizing that our fight, flight, or freeze responses are involuntary can help us take our partner's behavior (or lack thereof) less personally. 

    Ultimately the fight, flight, and freeze responses are meant to keep us safe. Our nervous system is triggered inside of us when we perceive we are in danger -- we have no control over this natural response. But what we can do is practice self-care and support our nervous system. Taking care of ourselves helps us to maintain perspective, and this helps us to have greater clarity to see what is a threat and what isn't. 

    Respecting a settled and relaxed state of mind is important too. The more time we spend in a settled state, the less often our nervous system is involuntarily triggered. But perhaps most important, is to understand that we're all on a learning curve with this, and our partner is acting the best way they know how for protecting themselves, even if the threat is just perceived. So if we can see the psychological innocence of our partner, and afford them that grace as their nervous system activates, we can wait for a better time to address issues and lessen the amount of escalation in the relationship. The more we see our own psychological innocence, the better we'll get at this.

Quaequae ,

Transformative!

I’ve only just begun this journey, but Angus and Rohini are speaking from a place that’s heart-centered, compassionate, and self-aware. Their advice flips traditional therapy on its head and puts the ownership on each of us to drop into ourselves, to re-discover and settle into our natural states, and then use that deeper knowing to guide our relationships from a place of love. That feels so revolutionary in today’s cultural landscape. Thank. You.
