    Developing a level of compassion & forgiveness for yourself with Jock Brocas

    Developing a level of compassion & forgiveness for yourself with Jock Brocas

    We cannot forgive anyone unless we love and forgive ourselves. Evidential Spiritual Medium and best-selling author Jock Brocas joins The Wake Up To Real Love podcast to share his journey from the monastery becoming the spiritual mentor to leaders and change makers. Discover how to forgive yourself, why you must overcome grief to learn and how you must accept yourself empathetically.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Be aware of the trials, tribulations and falsehoods that you will come up against in life. People often think that in grief you can heal, but the reality is that it's impossible to heal through grief because grief is a journey and development of the soul. You don't heal through grief at all, you come to a level of acceptance.
    Grief becomes our greatest teacher if you are honest and accepting of it. You will learn more when you experience a loss or trauma because until then you will not truly understand the capacity of grief and what can be discovered within it.
    Learn to accept yourself and the things you have done wrong in the past. If you’re able to accept a level of empathy with yourself and understand that guilt is a behaviour and emotion, you can uncover an empathetic acceptance and awareness of your journey. You may not heal from trauma but you can accept it.
    Forgiveness is not a skill that you develop or get better at. It is not temporary, forgiveness is a divine power that is inherent in all of us and you have freedom of choice to wield that power or not.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “I would go to church every day but the interesting thing was that as much as I was indoctrinated into a dogmatic faith system, I couldn't help but question it.”

    “We all are students.”

    “I learned more when I lost my father because I probably didn't understand grief to the capacity that I then discovered.”

    “Forgiveness is something that you develop even more through awareness, compassion, understanding yourself and loving yourself.“

    Motivational Speaker and Leading Sales Trainer Ian Koniak

    Motivational Speaker and Leading Sales Trainer Ian Koniak

    Dawn is joined by one of the highest sales performers in the world, Ian Koniak. Ian shares his unique story from mastering sales to overcoming addiction and finding true love in his marriage.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    If you can master sales you can achieve whatever you want, it allows you to have freedom and freedom of choice. But it comes with a lot of pressure to perform and to support your family.
    Most people believe that their self-worth comes from their net worth and if they cannot provide for their family they are a loser but that is not true.
    Men and women are socialised differently around sex and there are double standards and different paradigms depending on if you’re a man or a woman.
    Integrity means being open and honest about what you're doing when no one's looking. That's all it is.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “I was very determined to do whatever it took to be successful and achieve the goal of bringing my ex-girlfriend to the US.”

    “My career success was what defined me. I saw myself on paper as what society says is great. I saw myself as really successful but in the other areas of my life I was not, I had problems with addiction.”

    “I didn't really recognize it as childhood trauma at the time because I hadn't gone through therapy.”

    “If I wasn't making the money and getting the results, I didn't feel worthy.”

    “I nearly lost everything and that's what prompted me to go get the proper help.”

    Relationships, opportunities and the perfect image with Julie Lokun

    Relationships, opportunities and the perfect image with Julie Lokun

    Dawn welcomes the founder of the Omni Media Company and author of multiple best-selling books, Julie Lokun. Julie shares her journey from lawyer to podcaster and the trauma and relationships she’s experienced and overcome along the way.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    If you open your heart up to opportunities, you never know where it's going to take you. Every person we meet changes the trajectory of our lives. But people are so afraid to say yes and move out of their comfort zone.
    Anger is a secondary emotion. It's coming from somewhere else. it's just easier to blame everybody else instead of looking introspectively and saying, how can I change? What did I do wrong? How did I contribute to this issue?
    There's usually somebody who has the emotionality of the relationship and then there's the other person who is responsible for the structure of the relationship.
    Because we try to be perfect and portray the perfect image we destroy ourselves internally and there's this huge imbalance between both men and women as women are conditioned to be sad, cry and to be upset whilst men are the opposite.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “I found myself really unsettled in my soul, so that's how I transitioned from lawyer to podcaster.”

    “I just love elevating the voices of others, those who are wanting to make an impact in the world, and I see podcasting as an amazing tool to do it.”

    “A comfort zone is a scary place to be. I like to push myself outside the box and meet new people and talk to new people but you also have to stay focused.”

    “A relationship means sharing a slice of your life but no one likes to connect with someone who is perfect.”

    From Acting to Addiction: How Success and Generational Trauma Made Me Who I am with Deborah Driggs

    Deborah Driggs is known for her acting, dancing, and modelling, she is also a top-rated insurance professional and was even a playboy centerfold! Deborah now focuses her time and passion on helping women break through negative self-talk, take on challenges and build themselves the lives they deserve.

    Deborah joins Dawn to talk all about her mission, the journey that got her to where she is today including her success in the acting world as well as her struggles with addiction.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS  


    Deborah and Dawn both worked as flight attendants for Airlines in the 1980s. They both learnt how to deal with frightening emergencies and how to remain calm under immense pressure.
    Following some work modelling in Japan, Deborah decided that on her return to the U.S. she wanted to work in commercials, and this is exactly what she did. She recognized this as a pivotal moment in her life.
    After having a successful career in commercials, print and some bit parts, Deborah was given an opportunity to have a lead role, but she needed to take some acting classes to be hired.
    Deborah met her husband and got married in 92’, she had her first child in 93’ and her final acting role was in 98’. She was in a new era of her life.
    Deborah struggled with alcoholism most of her life, she now recognizes that this was part of the generational trauma that she was carrying.
    After the breakdown of her marriage, Deborah fell deeper into her addiction and even contemplated suicide.
    She entered rehab and managed to stay sober for a while but after getting a new job she convinced herself that she wasn’t an alcoholic and she began drinking again.
    To most, things looked great for Deborah. But she was miserable, she was just good at putting on a mask.
    If you aren’t living your authentic self, then regardless of money or status you have nothing.
    Deborah discovered she needed to tackle her issues and trauma head on, it was only this that allowed her to heal, from her trauma, suffering and addiction. She now helps others do the same.

    BEST MOMENTS

    “If there’s a struggle there’s a problem and in that problem, there is a beautiful solution”

    “That was probably the most pivotal moment of my life, I knew I was on the right track”

    “Everything that people said I wouldn’t be able to do, I just found a way to do it”“I do have a bit of success anxiety”

    “Everything looked good on the outside”

    “I believe that generational trauma exists”

    "I had to experience a lot of different healing journeys"

Breaking out of Survival Mode is powerful; Wake up to Real Love Rocks!

This podcast in general delivers what it promises and much more. Each episode brings in the experts to break down delicate issues with practical advice and solutions. Dawn Rishard is one of the best hosts you’ll ever hear. She not only has expert knowledge and insight, she is a thought provoking leader of each episode. Her ability to ask the tough and deep questions requires much from the guest. In the end, truth is plentiful as well as real world advice and help. The Breaking out of Survival Mode with Kenny was moving for me. Having been in that place, I know how difficult it is to get out and the conversation Dawn and Kenny had is one of the best you’ll ever hear. This podcast is undoubtedly one of the best available anywhere on the topics of love, sex, and relationship. A 5-Star winner!
