It isn't the bad things that happened to us that is the problem... It's what we end up believing about ourselves.
How Martial Arts Helped David Find Peace
In this episode, I have the privilege of interviewing up my very own self-defense instructor, David Perez. David shares what led him to find peace in the world of martial arts and how his experiences have led him to now have the opportunity to bless other people and tapping into their own inner power and challenging their mindset.
Understanding the Pendulum
As a child, whenever I would visit the Science Museum, I would love to watch the pendulum swinging back and forth. In this episode, we explore how the shadows of shame do a similar swing along the various spectrums. This episode helps you have a better understanding of the motivations of each of the shadows. I also give you another perspective based on Jungian psychology that was exemplified in the book, King, Magician, Warrior, Lover by Robert Moore and Douglass Gillette that explores the parts of ourselves that can help us shine powerful light on the shadows. At the end of the podcast, The Finding Peace Online Weekend Workshop is mentioned. Here, we will take a deeper dive into the Finding Peace Model and give you some tools to connect with your inner power while connecting with your truth.

Walls or Fences - A Boundaries Metaphor
It is 5 am in the morning, I am operating on maybe 51/2 hours of sleep. I am supposed to meet my personal trainer today. And I was so afraid that I wasn't going to be able to be on time that I tossed and turned throughout the entire night because I thought, if I don't wake up, I'm going to sleep through my first session with my personal trainer and that is not going to send a good message.And now I'm standing in the gym with my trainer, and I am so tired. I'm looking around at this gym. It's a fairly small gym, there is a rack of weights. There's a medicine ball, there's a treadmill and a bunch of other things that I'm fairly familiar with, because I've been going to the gym for several years by myself.I have decided that I needed to do something more intense for me because, unfortunately, as the years continue to go by, I continue to put more and more weight on my body, which I know physically is not healthy for me. And I want to be able to stick around for awhile and spend time with the people that I love the most. And so I've decided to hire this guy to see if he can help me take better care of my body. And I've asked him, in particular, if he can help me holistically, not just working particular muscles, but I want to be able to work more holistically mind, body, and spirit. I chose him because he is a jujitsu instructor in addition to being a personal trainer, and he told me that his master, who taught him about jujitsu, believed in that holistic part of healing the mind, body, and soul. So I felt that this was going to be a really good experience for me.He's showing me around the gym, give me a little bit of a tour of his place. He has just moved in a couple of months ago. And he's really excited about this new building, He's telling me about the history of the building and as he's talking, I ended up stepping on to the mat where he teaches jujitsu. He says to me, "Hey, you got to get off of that. That is sacred ground."And when he said that, I immediately stepped off of the mat. I didn't want to be disrespectful. But what struck me more was how immediately he reacted in a way that said, Hey, dude, this is sacred space, and no one is allowed to be on the sacred space until they're instructed to do So because sacred work, beautiful work happens on these mats. And so there's formality to it. And that made me really think about a question that a buddy of mine had asked me just three days earlier. And this is the questionof the podcast.Can you help me understand the difference between walls and fences?

Avoid Burpees and Connect Instead
There is a lot of controversy and contempt taking place around the world. We have a challenging time even being willing to consider listening to another person's point of view. In the process, we lose a sense of peace and security and instead become more defensive. In this episode of the Finding Peace Podcast, the listener will be asked to consider how being willing to emphatically listen may actually deepen relationships (and indeed create change). Troy also teaches the listener about BRPEs - the four behaviors that will drive disconnection in a relationship.You can get a copy of the Year of Self-Love, which Troy reads from during the podcast here.You can listen to this and other podcasts by going to any of the links below: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/id1472700242https://open.spotify.com/show/0p6DK6fPPjHH0z911oCuUghttps://www.troyllove.com/thefindingpeacepodcast
The Shadows of Shame are Lousy Cheerleaders
Shame is often what drives us to change our behavior. It's like a kick in the pants that shoves us out of our comfort zone. And initially, it seems like it is a great motivator for change, but is it sustaining?In this episode, we explore whether or not Shame is really that great of a cheerleader.
