Episodes

Meaning Making Machines

5/18/2019
More
Every experience triggers an emotion in us and we then make judgments, decisions, and act out of that emotion, unreliable and variable as it may be. Could the labels that offered us comfort and clarity at one time in our lives later cause our segregation and discomfort? The question to ask yourself is if your narrative is working for you or against you. If you find value in these commercial-free Podcast episodes or my online posts, monthly emails, the books or local events, please show...

Unsolicited Advice

4/22/2019
More
According to NVC (Non-Violent Communication), Unsolicited Advice is a form of violence; it's a way to bully someone by telling them what you think they "should" or "shouldn't" do. It can be very invasive when unwelcomed, so let's be mindful of what to do when we receive it, how to stop giving it, and the gift inherent in waiting for someone to ask for help rather than freely giving it.

Are You Ready?

4/5/2019
More
Life is going to throw some curve balls your way, take you up steep terrain, and surprise you with unexpected twists and turns. Are you ready to face it all like a champion so no challenge is overwhelming, or does everything in your life feel insurmountable? I say intentionally go without the very things you fear losing so you're prepared, trained, and ready! Keep your power instead of giving it away to fear.

Be Like Water

3/30/2019
More
Release your tight grip on things like identity wrapped in a job title or financial status, your car, home, or marital status. Keep stretching and expanding a flexible outlook as it ripples outward to encompass everything in the Universe. Turn to vapor, ice, liquid, and back again, without getting attached to any of it.

Echo Chamber

3/7/2019
More
Do you have a close circle of friends who help you grow and evolve, or do you have an echo chamber in which everyone you know keeps you confined in a loop of destructive behavior, stunting your growth instead of promoting it?

Duration:00:05:03

A Grain of Salt

2/25/2019
More
Can you look at the world with a fresh, unbiased mind, and trust your own discernment instead of looking for someone whom you deem "credible" to validate it for you?

Duration:00:06:49

Setting Boundaries

2/2/2019
More
If your image (how people perceive you) is more important to you than your own values, you'd allow people to cross some boundaries (or not even set them in the first place), all to protect your image. Your actions convey your priorities, so where does your image rank compared to your core values?

Duration:00:05:43

Do Less Harm

1/24/2019
More
In response to the Buddhist invitation to "Do No Harm," which I think is impossible, I prefer contemplating "Doing LESS Harm," which triggers awareness of our decisions' ripple effects on ourselves and the world around us until we find ways to minimize (not eliminate) the harm we cause when we eat, drink, read, watch, etc.

Don't Worry Be Mindful

1/9/2019
More
It's not about controlling your thoughts, it's about getting to a point where your thoughts don't control you.

Duration:00:05:24

Stubborn

12/20/2018
More
What are you stubborn about, and to whose benefit?

Duration:00:04:40

The End

12/6/2018
More
We've been raised to never talk about it, and told that any mention of it is morbid, so how can we ever be prepared for the death of our loved ones or ourselves if we never discuss it?

Duration:00:05:28

The Problem with Being Goal-Oriented

11/27/2018
More
The problem with being goal-oriented and future-focused is that at no given point are you where you want to be. When one eye is fixed upon the destination, only one eye is left with which to find the way.

Duration:00:04:12

Unhappily Ever After?

11/14/2018
More
Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent so much time making it.

Duration:00:05:25

Who Are You?

10/24/2018
More
If your happiness depends on something you can lose, you will spend your entire life afraid of losing it. But if your happiness depends on who you are in relation to each moment, then nothing and nobody can take that away from you.

Response Ability

10/11/2018
More
Even if the wound is not your fault, healing from it is your responsibility.

Duration:00:03:14

Insecurities

9/19/2018
More
Insecurities are the result of accepting the media's and other people's projections about us as truth until we no longer hear our highest selves reassure us of our inherent worth, which isn't measured by our job title, skin color, tax bracket, waist size, etc.

Duration:00:04:47

Self-worth

9/11/2018
More
If we're dependent on outside validation for a sense of self-worth, then we run the risk of living our entire lives polishing an image that pleases others rather than having awareness of our inherent worth by simply living and working with integrity. We've been told a story of hierarchy and then urged to make it to the top so we can look down on others, but I don't think our value is a contest or a competition; we all serve a purpose. And if we can live in peace with ourselves and with...

Let Go Or Be Dragged

8/21/2018
More
Is it the load that breaks our backs or the way we carry it?

Duration:00:04:55

Forgiveness and Apologizing

8/6/2018
More
Not forgiving is a form of self-imprisonment. Liberate yourself by doing away with the existing apology-and-forgiveness model that is similar to loan transactions in which one person is indebted to another, and get unstuck by taking the lesson from every experience, throwing away any grudge or resentment, and moving forward.
