Episode 94 – How to take revelation and turn it into powerful action, even when life is messy

Our preference for simple, concise stories over truth can be a huge source of frustration. After doing the three steps to success or seven habits of amazingness, we expect to be soaring on the wings of an inspired life. So when we find ourselves knee-deep in a bunch of messy inconvenient crap it can be really, really disappointing.

In this episode we explore how to get past the messy inconveniences and persist in making your inspiration a reality

We often fall into a subtle trap when we hear other people share their stories of success. What we WANT to hear is that living an inspired life is always going to be easy. It’s a very simple mistake to make because people like to talk about their successes by sharing their cliff-notes version of life. The truth is, even when we are sincerely trying to tell the whole story, we forget most of the messy details. Even what we do remember, we don’t enjoy sharing because it isn’t very fun to share about the boring, frustrating, messy twists and turns of the actual journey. Who wants to hear that, right?

So how do we get past these inconveniences and actually get to a place where we feel inspired by what we have done, and what we are doing? Let’s check it out.

 

Episode 93 – Small and effective ways to find our faith

As we journey to find the Spirit

We wait for the heavens to part, for the glorious shining light to sweep us into a promised land

Our eyes in lofty places, we pass the small trail markers, the hunches, the irritations, the urges, the dreams…

And then after days, weeks, years have passed without a sign, we wonder why we feel so lost and abandoned

Episode 92 – Tuning in to the call of the Spirit

As we tune up our body’s and mind to clear out some of the gunk of life like mediocre health, idle distractions, stressful environments, it opens up our being to be listening and directed more by intuition and desire. These are trail markers that we can use to start following the leading of the Spirit in our lives

In this episode, I explore how good habits have taken me 80% of the way there, and now I am not so easily trapped in the clutter of life. Yet the work isn’t done, how do I sustain the gains and move into powerful new directions in my own life?

Episode 91 – It often just takes these basic things to restore our mind, body and spirit

In this episode I put myself under the microscope of faith again as I look to restore my spirit and achieve balance in my life. Since things have been a little chaotic and stressful at work that has been spilling over into everything else that I care about.

There are two things that I will be going back to basics with, being well rested and well fed – dive into this episode to learn how it usually is the simplest changes we need to make to get back on track and restore our ecology of faith.

Episode 90 – How the five fold life is showing up in my life

With this episode I stop and reflect on the ways that my life is being used in creative, regenerative ways. Some of the most powerful insights that I have had in my own journey of faith and discovery have come when other people share their stories and ideas with me.

So here you go!

Episode 88 – Can a simple suggestion bring new life and possibility into your faith?

It is very hard to recognize what is “normal” for us until we encounter something that interrupts us out of the trance of the day-to-day by introducing something different than we expected.

In this episode, we explore how a living faith is one that is seeking to express something unique and creative within you. It is a hunch of possibility, that is NOT normal – at least not to us, because otherwise we would be doing it already!

Trance and the power of suggestion are powerful tools that shape and create social expectations about what is normal, but interestingly enough we can also use those tools to create something new as we strive to move out of the life we are used to and more deeply into our calling, our purpose or even simply into just doing something that we have wanted to do forever!

Episode 87 – A simple technique to move from anxiety into a state of ease and flow

In this episode I share an exercise that helps me move from feeling out of sync to feeling full of life, ease and possibility.

It is simple, but very powerful. Try using this frequently and see how it transforms your own life – it is especially useful to create more space in yourself when you are in the middle of tense situations or facing something new and challenging.

In this episode I share how I used this technique to move past anxiety and depression and start my week with more eagerness and focus. Which is more the mindset I need because this week is looking to be very hard, demanding and also very rewarding.

Episode 86: Four steps to open your own hidden doorway and begin a new spiritual adventure

We can get so jaded with life. All the mystery gets explained away by all the sciency facts and data….yet despite how reality can sometimes seem very cold and boring….there is another facet of life that is common, very real, and yet at the same time deeply mysterious.

Dreams are still a realm of consciousness that is not very well understood. Sleep is also still quite a profound mystery that we really don’t understand very well. So within these strange worlds, we have a daily opportunity to explore our own private landscape and encounter things that defy explanation. It can be a little like unlocking that secret entrance in the library or by stumbling through the other end of the closet. One minute you’re casually exploring, and the next you find yourself awake in an entirely new world. It is the stuff of a fantasy novel, but we can plunge into this world every night. 

In this episode, learn how to open up the world of dreams as a new arena to cultivate awareness. Use these four fundamentals to become more present in both your waking and sleeping moments.
