*** The sound on this one's a bit funky. Didn't use my mic. So, I did my best to eq it and use some audio magic to make it easier to listen to ***
A very fun conversation with my friend, Paul Kearney (https://www.iampaulkearney.com), who's excitement about the topic helped me start up season 2. 🤣

Ali Smith - Life (1999), Star Wars: Ep. III - Revenge Of The Sith (2005), Django Unchained (2021)
I invited one of my oldest school friends to come through and discuss his three favorite movies. I met Ali when I transferred to a new high school and I quickly discovered one of the first people I ever met who was actually happy (it was the 90's. it wasn't cool to be happy, yet). I hope you enjoy our conversation, as it truly reveals insights into why my amazing friend is... well, pretty amazing. :-)

Bret Rockmore - The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy (2001-2003), Step Brothers (2008), The Big Short (2015), Forrest Gump (1994)
Sometimes, SOMETIMES, in life, you go into a conversation open to whatever might show up and with the openness to receive. Well, the joy, vulnerability, and fun that my friend, Bret Rockmore, shared with me about his "three" favorite movies changed my life. Not joking about this. His excitement for the epic universe of "LOTR," the creative joy and chaos of "Step Brothers," the trusting what you see and choosing according to your knowing of the characters of "The Big Short," and the freedom of creating without a POV in "Forrest Gump," is all an energy that reminded me what it is to be you, choose just to choose, to trust your awareness, and to be the gift you truly be. I'm so grateful to my friend, Bret. :-)
Bret Rockmore is an Access Consciousness Certified Facilitator and the founder of Rockmore Media. He is fondly known as the encyclopedia-BRET-anica for his quick recall of the Access Consciousness Reference materials (of which there are over 4,000 pages!). Bret is an example of someone who lives and breathes allowance. Just being around him is an incredible gift. And he's a funny devil too!!
Bret grew up in New York and found Access Consciousness after being diagnosed with an "incurable disease", which he was able to cure himself of using the tools he discovered. He now lives in Houston, TX, but you will very often find him in amazing places around the world, videoing livestreamed classes, making it possible for Access Consciousness classes to be enjoyed by all from the comfort of their own home.
Bret enjoys empowering people to find their creative capacities that only they are capable of.
S1: "And this is why I ask this question..." - A Highlight From Episode 2 With Natalie Burrage
I started this podcast because I love asking people this question. And in this brief clip from episode 2 with my guest, Natalie Burrage, I tell her why. One of her Three Favorite Movies was one that I COULD NOT get past the first 20 minutes. In revealing what she loves about that movie, about the things in the characters she adores, she shows me so much about what makes her great and why she's one of my favorite people in the world.
Sarah Watt - Gangs Of New York (2002), Pulp Fiction (1994), Avatar (2009)
EDITORS NOTE: This episode was interrupted by technical difficulties. My feed got cut off and we had to pick up where the internet gods chose to cut us off. If anything, it shows how brilliant Sarah is. 😁
The brilliant, phenomenal, and incredibly wonderful, Sarah Watt, takes me through her three favorite movies. For those of you who don't know, Sarah's three favorites are a wonderful reflection of this kind, potent, and all out bad-ass of a human being. When I first thought of the idea of this podcast, she was the first name that came to mind. And like an earlier episode, she chose a movie that I truly had resisted for YEARS. And because of our interview, I now appreciate that movie and see a magic that isn't just in the movie, but in everything that my friend, Sarah, embodies. Please enjoy this episode of Your Three Favorite Movies with Sarah Watt.
So, as you probably now know, my name is Sarah Watt!! Here is a little bit more about me…
I was first introduced to the tools of Access Consciousness about 8 years ago and the moment I actually chose them, to be aware of what I was choosing, making changes and using these tools….well my life and living drastically changed! It took me a little while and I would say for the last 2.5 years I have really had my own back and been way more committed to me than I ever was for the years proceeding.
So I am an Access Consciousness Certified facilitator, Joy of Business Facilitator, Bars Facilitator and I work full time for Access Consciousness, Simone Milasas and Brendon Watt!….apparently I love creating and having a lot on the go! AND today, like every day, I ask the question “what can I add to my life today to create the future I desire to live and to see in the world?"
I travel the world working for a company who’s target is "Empowering People to Know That They Know”, I mean how does it get any better than that?
What I have always known is that if you’d like to create the life and future you desire, you need to get to work. It's about everything you choose in small increments that creates the change you really require to see in yourself and the world. Not one big choice!
So what are you choosing and creating today to contribute to your life and living?
and what would you choose if you knew you couldn’t fail?
