    The negativity that likes to work its way into your mind and body

    The negativity that likes to work its way into your mind and body

    Are you inadvertently allowing negativity into my mind and body? When someone puts you down or mistreats you, is it possible you are unintentionally enabling this behavior? You shouldn't be blamed for other people's bad behaviors, but you should also not be too tolerant of it either.

    The beliefs that serve you and the beliefs that don't

    Punishing yourself for your mistakes

    Punishing yourself for your mistakes

    It's bad enough to get punished by someone else when you make a mistake, but to compound the suffering by punishing yourself can make things so much worse. Sure, we can beat ourselves up for our own actions, but when we make a habit of it, our quality of life decreases and it's hard to enjoy the present moment.

    You've called them out. You've had your arguments. You've tried everything to get someone to take responsibility for their words or actions. But you still can't get through to them.  Some people are impossible and there's no hope.  Is that true with certain people? Let's explore that.

    I do so much for them for so little in return

    I do so much for them for so little in return

    Sometimes no matter what you do for someone, they just don't have the capability to reciprocate. Love and connection can be welcome, but what if it isn't returned? The first segment addresses this challenge between a daughter and a mom.   The second segment takes a little turn to share a story of a man dealing with a divorce he didn't expect.

He saves lives.

I’ve been listening for a while. I don’t want to make this long so all I will say is, some people just have the gift of transformation through their words. Paul’s episodes connect with me on a emotional, mental, and even spiritual level. I am very grateful to have found this podcast.
