    Ep 15: Exploring true (not toxic) ambition

    30:18

    I don’t know about you, but the pandemic has brought me a huge opportunity to explore my ambitions on a deeper level…  Why do I want what I want?What do we want collectively, and why?Do I actually want what I say I want, really?What conditioning and wounding has impacted my longings?How can I even know whether my ambitions are truly mine?Is it even okay to hold these desires, when so many have so little? The questions of ambition are not questions we can neatly answer, but questions we’re invited to live in.  This week’s podcast episode is an exploration on how we can live, breathe, and move within these complex questions...  In this episode, I share: How we can cultivate deeper self trust, while also interrogating our ambitions The initial “yes” that can make all the difference, and why it’s not the whole story Why unmapping from toxic ambition is Grief Work, and some thoughts on what we might need in order to be with it The profound role pleasure can play in walking us back to a deeper understanding of our deepest longings and highest vision You can find the show notes from this episode over at:  nishamoodley.com/ep15 ––– RESOURCES + LINKS: Sign up for Nisha’s free new workshop, Embody Your Leadership: Expand your freedom to show up with vision & devotion, here: EmbodyYourLeadership.com Meditation to connect with your Wise Future Self: NishaMoodley.com/join Soul of Leadership opens for enrollment soon.

    Ep 14: Facing the fear of being called-out

    34:01

    In these deeply divided times, where we’re expanding our awareness of the ways we’ve contributed to inequity and injustice, where social media enables a lightning-fast game of “telephone”, where assumptions are made based on optics, and where calls to “cancel” someone can take place of relational engagement… the fear of being called-out can be gripping. If we aim to embody our leadership… We don’t want to react like a little animal backed into a corner.  We don’t want to accidentally (let alone intentionally) cause harm.  But when we don’t face the fear of being called-out, we become fragile instead of resilient... We hide and keep ourselves small and quiet, because we don’t want to risk causing harm or receiving negative attention. We become rigid, self-righteous, and defensive, because deep down we can’t handle being wrong. In this episode, I share: How we can build resilience through receptivity (which doesn’t mean being open to abuse) The difference between calls for accountability and attacks, and why we ought to discern the difference, even if we don’t like how communication is being delivered How I “sort the mail” on communications, as a way to discern how I want to respond Why it’s crucial to remember that we have sovereign choice over how we respond What we need to consider about right-relationship, after the dust settles You can find the show notes from this episode over at:  nishamoodley.com/ep14 ––– RESOURCES + LINKS: Sign up for Nisha’s free new workshop, Embody Your Leadership: Expand your freedom to show up with vision & devotion, here: EmbodyYourLeadership.com Soul of Leadership opens for enrollment soon.

    Ep 13: Longing to give our {deepest} gifts

    40:01

    This week’s podcast is structured like a workshop, where I muse on the under-acknowledged challenges that I see getting in the way of us fully surrendering in devotion to our sacred work, and offer some of my favorite meditations, practices, and inquiries to open more fully to the medicine we’re here to receive and weave... In this episode, I share: How focusing on what’s marketable / what people want, can keep us from moving to our creative cutting edge The restrictive identities that bind our freedom to fully claim ourselves as whole beings How to shift from relating to your work as a Slot Machine to a Garden (and why we MUST) My favorite meditation for cultivating self-trust and trust in life The animist way of relating to my work that’s changed everything You can find the show notes from this episode over at:  nishamoodley.com/ep13 ––– RESOURCES + LINKS: Learn about Nisha’s intimate new course, DEVOTED | Surrender Into Your Sacred Work: DevotedCircle.com Meditation to connect with your Wise Future Self: NishaMoodley.com/join Check out Episode 9, to learn more about cultivating an animist relationship with your work ––– IF YOU ENJOY DEVOTION PODCAST… We would love for you to rate and review it!  This helps more people find it and give it a chance.

    Ep 10: When You Don’t Know What to Believe

    31:19

      In these times of intensity, many of us may find ourselves feeling tender and raw.  This can lead to our minds and nervous systems being more easily hijacked by technology and propaganda, leading to deepening disconnection, division, and aggression…   Lately, I have had many people reach out, challenged with sifting through all the competing and colliding narratives flying around, and desiring to feel more rooted clarity.  In this episode, I share...    :: Ideas for what to STOP doing, to create space for clarity and coherence  :: Discernment about where firmness and nuance can intersect around our beliefs :: How our nervous systems and minds can be easily hijacked, and some of my favorite simple practices for preventing that :: How America’s collective psyche reminds me a lot of my dad’s, shortly before his death, and how we might unhook from the hyper-paranoia You can find the show notes from this episode over at:  nishamoodley.com/ep10

    Ep 9: Cultivating an Animist Relationship to Business

    22:09

    As we explore ways to create that are both personally and collectively nourishing, there’s an opportunity to seek clarity about what wants to be created, how it wants to be created, and what our place is in its creation. Relating to our creations through an animist lens invites us to hold them in RELATIONSHIP with all other beings.  This opens up the possibility to create things that are more integrated and mutually nourishing. In this episode, I’ll share: :: A philosophy for business that places strategy in service of soul  :: My favorite ritual for connecting with my business on a soul level, in order to gain clarity about how to support its growth :: The things we need to get clear on, in order to step into a role of stewardship  :: A soulful way to check-in with our work regularly, to see what’s needed You can find the show notes from this episode over at:  nishamoodley.com/ep9 ––– RESOURCES + LINKS: You can find Hiro Boga, mentioned in this episode, at HiroBoga.com Sign up for Nisha’s free new workshop, Embody Your Leadership: Expand your freedom to show up with vision & devotion, here: EmbodyYourLeadership.com ––– IF YOU ENJOY DEVOTION PODCAST… We would love for you to rate and review it!  This helps more people find it and give it a chance.
