Wishing you, big-hearted friend, a most blessed new year and powerful 2022! Today, I am sharing some powerful insights about managing your energy and manifesting your best life after reading two of my new favorite books. If you identify as an empath or highly sensitive person, which means someone who is very in tune with others' emotions and even feeling their emotions as yours, and/or as highly sensitive, this episode is a must-listen for you. I redefine the way to look at your ego, how it's crucial to stop shaming, blaming, and being at war with yourself, and the importance of developing strong boundaries and your individual identity. 



Redefining Your Relationship To Your Ego

This might surprise you, but most empaths are naturally and incredibly tuned in to a higher consciousness and sense of unity with others but often lack an individuated sense of self. In reading Anita Moorjani's amazing book, Sensitive Is the New Strong: The Power of Empaths in an Increasingly Harsh World; she gives the example of picturing volume knobs that you might find on an old fashioned radio. For empaths and highly sensitive persons (hi, I see you!), your knob will automatically be turned way up in the high consciousness and connectedness category, but what is probably turned way too low or even off is your ego knob. I shared how impactful this distinction is since so much of my own learning and experience with spiritual teachers has been to negate, override, let go of or shame your ego into existence. The truth is that when you look at the definition of ego, which is "a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance," it takes on a different meaning than we are often taught. In fact, it's crucial to have a sense of self and importance to stand powerfully and firmly in your own ideals, boundaries, values, and experience of self. I've found that as an empath, it's easy to get caught up in someone else's emotions, so much so that in the past, I would have a hard time distinguishing myself from the other person. I sense you're in a similar boat, and for you, this idea of connecting more deeply to your individuated idea of self, your ego, is a must and shouldn't be shamed or feared. I'm not talking about those who are egocentric, egomaniacs, or narcissists. Which would mean the dial is turned all the way up on the ego and down on conscious connection. Anita shares that you want both dials turned up and with a strong sense of self to honor your boundaries and what works for your energy and life. Let me know what you think of this and how redefining your relationship with your ego is helping you to feel more loving to yourself and others.




The Power of Boundaries for Empaths

As an empath or highly sensitive person, it is imperative to know your boundaries and know how to effectively and kindly communicate when they've been crossed. This can be challenging for anyone who self-identifies as a people pleaser or is uncomfortable with conflict. I shared a few ways to use language that is direct yet still kind to express your boundary and feelings. For example, if a family member strongly suggests changing your plans to make an event yet it is not comfortable or ideal for you to attend, it's helpful to have ways of sharing your appreciation for their thoughtfulness and to kindly decline. You might say something like, 'I really appreciate your invite and wanting me there, but unfortunately, it doesn't work for me to attend.' I have seen how the power of coaching can help with finding ways to speak directly and with integrity as well as coming up with new questions you can ask yourself to know your own boundaries better. The more you practice setting and keeping boundaries, the easier it becomes, and just like strengthening a muscle, you will soon have a strong boundary muscle to lean on. Boundaries are also highly important for managing your energy and cultivating a healthy sense of self.




You Are Golden with Goodness

In Tara Brach's new book, Trusting the Gold: Learning to Nurture Your Inner Light, she reminds us that inherently we are all made of the same goodness and that it's important to learn how to trust this inner light and goodness from within. This is the year to be kinder to yourself and speak to yourself with compassion, grace, and loving-kindness. Just as Tara shared about her practice of reminding herself to 'soften the edge', which helped her heal from an illness with ease, you also can speak to yourself in a way that can create calm, tenderness, and support. Maybe you start to call yourself something loving like 'sweetheart', 'darling' or 'beautiful'. Choose something that feels kind and comforting, and remember to see the goodness that always lives within you.




Three Ways To Ground and Manage Your Energy

Start noticing and tracking what helps you to feel enlivened, recharged, and in your own energy field. Keep a list and return back to these practices when you're feeling tired, low on steam and energy. As empaths, it's incredibly important to recharge your batteries and energy. Here are three ways that work for many empaths: 1. Take a bath, get into a pool, ocean, or lake. Getting into water can help to calm your nervous system 2. Take a walk outside to connect with the oneness of the plants, trees, animals and nature, and to get more vitamin D. 3. Spend time being quiet through meditation, journaling, drawing in a color book, using your rosary or mala beads, or lying still with your hand on your heart and breathing slowly and with intention.

    Getting Paid to Be You with Laura Belgray, Founder of Talking Shrimp

    1:05:52

    Meet Laura Belgray   Laura Belgray, the founder of Talking Shrimp and co-creator of The Copy Cure, is a copywriting expert who helps entrepreneurs find the perfect words to express and sell what they do in a way that gets them paid to be themselves. Through her work with hundreds of clients (including online biggies like Marie Forleo and Amy Porterfield) she's seen firsthand that putting "you" into your copy and all through your business is pure magic for getting people to love you up, share your ideas, and happily click your Buy button. In addition to online types, Laura's list of clients and credits includes NBC, Bravo, HBO, TBS, Fandango, and many more. So if you watch TV -- and don't skip the commercials -- you've probably seen her words on air. You can learn more about Laura and her incredible courses and freebies at talkingshrimp.com.    Have you ever been so excited to open your inbox because it contained an email you actually wanted to read? Or see an Instagram post with a caption that made you pee in your pants?    That, my friend, is the pure magic of great copywriting. And the magic of Laura Belgray.     I've got some darn good wisdom coming your way from my guest today, Laura Belgray, the founder of Talking Shimp and co-creator of the Copy Cure, who will help you stop writing sucky copy (as Laura says). This conversation was so much fun that it even passed my 'hurting cheeks' test. That's when I notice my cheeks hurting after smiling and laughing during an interview. This convo was a total 10 on the 1-10 hurting cheek scale. I hope your cheeks hurt a little bit, too, after listening to this conversation. Email Marketing Gone Right   I don't want to give it all away, but you're going to love Laura's humor and wit. A good place to start with using great copy in your email marketing and newsletters is to stop being formal and start being personable and most importantly, be yourself. A great way to do this is to pretend you're writing to your bestie. Draft an email speaking to your BFF and then read it out loud. Remember, you're talking to a person, so keep it genuine, focused on that one person and write like you'd talk. The goal is to have your emails feel more intimate, relaxed, natural, and conversational. Another little pro tip, use the person's first name (sparingly) throughout the newsletter.  Laura also shares:   What an EFAB is and why you need to use it The best way to write subject headings (and preview text) in a newsletter The one phrase to NEVER use in an email How to get paid being you  The new rule on using contractions and apostrophes     Final Thoughts   Laura shares so much goodness about copywriting, email marketing, and laughs that just don't stop. Make sure you tune in to hear about her stint on Sesame Street and why she now eats Raisin Bran.

    The Benefits of Being A Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur

    1:07:59

    Meet the Panel Today's episode is with a panel of amazing transformation life coaches who all graduated from my LIfe Designer® Coaching certification program.

Jennifer Kate is a Certified Life Designer® coach, transformational healer-coach, certified Reiki practitioner, master business strategist, and Inner Truth Ambassador. She uses her process of Grieving Consciously™ to empower her clients to find magic in the overwhelm of life's challenging transitions so they can make the profound shifts they need to grow into their highest selves.

She creates value by more efficiently and creatively connecting people, resources, and growth opportunities, maximizing the benefit of value exchange for all parties.

Jennifer Underwood (JLeh) is a Certified Life Designer® coach, Advanced DNA ThetaHealing® practitioner, Vice-Chair of the Global Association for Trauma Recovery, and creator of the Redefining Inheritance method.    Oh my goodness, You-est You listeners...this panel of badass women entrepreneurs was pure magic and brilliance. There are so many take-aways that I've decided to write up these show notes more as an outline and summary of the amazing quotes, lessons, practices, and rituals that can help you honor your multi-passionate self, be it in your career, business, or life. Here we go... Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur   First off, it's ok to be a multi-passionate entrepreneur!  See this as a strength, not a liability.  There is no one way to do life, business, or your journey. As Gina said, follow your own spark and find your authentic path.  It's crucial to invest in yourself and to learn how to lead yourself. The art and science of coaching give you the tools to learn how to ask powerful questions, listen at a much deeper level, and get curious. Abby reminded us that through these coaching techniques, you can learn to even coach yourself. It's about self-leadership! You don't have to be perfect to serve others! JLeh also reminded us that happiness is always a choice, and it's up to you to prioritize your happiness and joy.  When you allow yourself to feel all the way through, there is magic in grieving. Jennifer talked about the importance of managing your limited energy, especially during such intense and challenging times. Strengthen Your Sense of Self   Practices to help you strengthen your sense of self, intuition, and energy: Strengthen your vibration by listening to music you love, being in nature, reading inspirational works, and connecting to others in the community Focus on gratitude and being unconditionally loving to yourself and others.  Maximize your life flow by creating an environment that supports your best and regulates your nervous system. Ways to do this could be attuning to your energy and making sure you're getting enough sleep, excellent nutrition, movement, breathwork, and staying aligned mind, heart, and spirit.  Create rituals to support your mornings and evenings. An easy one is to light a candle at the end of each day, signifying a change in the energy, slowing down, and coming home to yourself.  Plan ahead and be intentional with your time. A great morning starts the night before! Final Thoughts Let your heart flare! There's no better time to start anything than right now. Don't delay, and don't judge your past. Rather than being a seeker, be a finder. Ask yourself powerful questions, get curious, and create a practice to support you. Stay true to your heart and take this life thing one step at a time. Don’t be afraid to be a multi-passionate entrepreneur, let nothing hold you back!     Connect with the Panel Gina Casbarro Website: ginacasbarro.com Facebook: @ginacasbarro Twitter: @gcas123 Instagram: @gina_casbarro Linkedin:@gcasbarro Youtube: @Gina Casbarro Jennifer Kate Facebook: @claimyourmagic Instagram: @jenniferkate717 Abigail Lehman Linkedin: @abigailrlehman Jennifer Underwood Website: bilingualpartnershipsolutions.com Linkedin: @jennifer-underwood-lehman     Interested in Becoming a Certified Life Coach?

    Conversations About God with Neale Donald Walsch

    1:04:59

    Meet Neale Donald Walsch   Neale Donald Walsch has written 39 books on contemporary spirituality and its practical application in everyday life. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his early adult years thriving professionally yet searching for greater meaning in life. He has said that this yearning led to a series of deeply personal spiritual encounters, which he experienced as direct exchanges with the Divine. A series of books titled Conversations with God emerged from those moments through inspired writing, and they have been translated into 37 languages. Seven books in the series reached the New York Times bestseller list; Conversations with God-Book 1 remained there for over two-and-a-half years. His latest book is The God Solution, published in December 2020, which invites humanity to embrace a new global ethic based on a refined and clarified definition of God. The book proposes that there is a single statement of spiritual truth upon which all the world's religions could agree and which would birth a shift of spiritual paradigms around the globe of such magnitude that it would produce peace and happiness on our planet at last. You can find out more at nealedonaldwalsch.com Soul seekers, this is a conversation not to miss! Neale Donald Walsch graciously came back on the You-est You podcast to share greater and deeper insights about connecting with the divine and why we must start remembering our divinity and acting on it now. It's a gift to share this interview, and I hope it brings you increased peace, spiritual connection, compassion, and awareness of who you really are. If you missed his previous episode, be sure to catch The God Solution.    It Took 35 Years To Become An Overnight Success   It's easy to see a luminary like Neale Donald Walsch and think that his bestselling book, Conversations with God, was just an overnight success. In truth, Neale shared with us that his skill in writing and excellent communication skills relied on 35 years of experience as a radio host, journalist, actor, and performer. The book itself, an unplanned and extraordinary experience communicating with God, was not something he had planned for, yet the ability to write succinctly and with ease came from years of experience. It's important to look at your own skills, talents, and experiences and trust that the divine has plans to put them to use in a way that will serve a higher good, as it did with Neale. Interestingly, right before the book sold millions of copies, Neale Donald Walsch's life was certainly not a bestseller, as it was falling apart. He had been laid off, had major marriage issues, and suffered health problems. Soon after being laid off, he was hit by an older driver who didn't see him and broke his neck. Neale ended up living on the sidewalk for an entire year (you read that right), and it wasn't until a miracle part-time job at a radio station that he started to regain some semblance of a life with shelter, food, and a little bit of money. It was during this time when he lived in a small in-laws suite that he took out his yellow legal pad and began to vent his anger to God one early morning at 4 am. In pure anger and frustration, he asked questions like "Why me?" and What do you want from me? What does it take to make life work?" Then something incredible happened -- Neale heard a voice that jokingly said, "Do you really want the answers?" From then on, he took dictation and wrote down what he was hearing, and started a paper dialogue.  Inspired Writing   Neale shared that he doesn't view his writing or the book as channeled since no other entity or collective consciousness took over him or his writing. Instead, he sees this as inspired writing. He kept a record of what he was hearing and being told. In fact, early on in the Conversations with God book, God shares that it is constantly communicating with ALL of us. It's up to us to listen. The real question is, who is listening? We often hear or sense this communication through an epiphany, our intuition, or what you might call a psychic hit.  The God Solution   Research shows the 8 out of 10 people believe in a Higher Power and that we have 4300 organized religions on the planet. Neale addresses the problem in his most recent and last book, The God Solution, that while we teach to act like God, we have it upside down in believing that God is judgmental, angry, condemning, and punishing. All of these are human characteristics and not true to God. We misunderstand what it means to be Godly and God-like. God's job is not to fix things; rather God's intention is to infuse the power of divinity within everyone. We need to change how we are using and connecting to this Higher Power and redefine God. Neale suggests redefining God as Pure Love; Pure Love means a need, want, expectation, and demanding absolutely nothing in return. This is where we must change our way of acting and being to emulate this God of Pure Love, which would mean loving your enemies, praying for those who persecuted you, and not expecting love in return. As Einstein said, you can't solve a problem using the same energy that created it. It is a real call to action for humanity to embody this concept of Pure Love and be it in our daily lives. This starts in our homes and with those closest in our lives. The Secret Ingredient To Changing Our Planet   The most important aspect of being a force for change and a light unto the darkness is weaving in compassion. Compassion allows you to forgive and love those who have hurt you. If we were to get enough people to be part of this theological evolution, we could change how our planet operates. Neale sums up the three most important steps for this kind of global change: Change our world view of God Give people back to themselves Awaken the human species   Be the Pure Love you wish to see in the world, starting with yourself! Final Thoughts   It was such a pleasure having Neale Donald Walsch on the show once again. He has such insight on connecting your Higher Power. His series of inspired writing books show us how empowering it can be to lead a God-like life if we surrender to leading an existence of Pure Love. If you haven't already, grab a copy of his The God Solution today.     Connect with Neale Donald Walsch Website: nealedonaldwalsch.com Facebook: @NealeDonaldWalsch Twitter: @realNDWalsch       Interested in Becoming a Certified Life Coach?

    How to Embrace Your Ego as an Empath with Julie Reisler

    26:14

    Meet Julie Reisler Julie Reisler is a master transformational coach with over ten years of coaching experience and a master's degree in health & wellness coaching. Julie is the founder of the Life Designer Coach Academy, a coach mastery training certification program, host and founder of the You-est You® Podcast, with close to 300 episodes, and author of Get a PhD in YOU. Julie has been featured in Forbes magazine, MindBodyGreen, The Chopra Center, and Thrive Global. She is also a prominent teacher, course creator, and guide on the popular app Insight Timer and is on the faculty at Georgetown University in their coaching program. Julie lives in the Washington, DC area with her blended family of 3 kids and her favorite sweet furball, Luna. To learn more about Julie and how she might support you on your You-est You journey, go to juliereisler.com.  Wishing you, big-hearted friend, a most blessed new year and powerful 2022! Today, I am sharing some powerful insights about managing your energy and manifesting your best life after reading two of my new favorite books. If you identify as an empath or highly sensitive person, which means someone who is very in tune with others' emotions and even feeling their emotions as yours, and/or as highly sensitive, this episode is a must-listen for you. I redefine the way to look at your ego, how it's crucial to stop shaming, blaming, and being at war with yourself, and the importance of developing strong boundaries and your individual identity.  Redefining Your Relationship To Your Ego This might surprise you, but most empaths are naturally and incredibly tuned in to a higher consciousness and sense of unity with others but often lack an individuated sense of self. In reading Anita Moorjani's amazing book, Sensitive Is the New Strong: The Power of Empaths in an Increasingly Harsh World; she gives the example of picturing volume knobs that you might find on an old fashioned radio. For empaths and highly sensitive persons (hi, I see you!), your knob will automatically be turned way up in the high consciousness and connectedness category, but what is probably turned way too low or even off is your ego knob. I shared how impactful this distinction is since so much of my own learning and experience with spiritual teachers has been to negate, override, let go of or shame your ego into existence. The truth is that when you look at the definition of ego, which is "a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance," it takes on a different meaning than we are often taught. In fact, it's crucial to have a sense of self and importance to stand powerfully and firmly in your own ideals, boundaries, values, and experience of self. I've found that as an empath, it's easy to get caught up in someone else's emotions, so much so that in the past, I would have a hard time distinguishing myself from the other person. I sense you're in a similar boat, and for you, this idea of connecting more deeply to your individuated idea of self, your ego, is a must and shouldn't be shamed or feared. I'm not talking about those who are egocentric, egomaniacs, or narcissists. Which would mean the dial is turned all the way up on the ego and down on conscious connection. Anita shares that you want both dials turned up and with a strong sense of self to honor your boundaries and what works for your energy and life. Let me know what you think of this and how redefining your relationship with your ego is helping you to feel more loving to yourself and others. The Power of Boundaries for Empaths As an empath or highly sensitive person, it is imperative to know your boundaries and know how to effectively and kindly communicate when they've been crossed. This can be challenging for anyone who self-identifies as a people pleaser or is uncomfortable with conflict. I shared a few ways to use language that is direct yet still kind to express your boundary and feelings. For example, if a family member strongly suggests changing your plans to make an event yet it is not comfortable or ideal for you to attend, it's helpful to have ways of sharing your appreciation for their thoughtfulness and to kindly decline. You might say something like, 'I really appreciate your invite and wanting me there, but unfortunately, it doesn't work for me to attend.' I have seen how the power of coaching can help with finding ways to speak directly and with integrity as well as coming up with new questions you can ask yourself to know your own boundaries better. The more you practice setting and keeping boundaries, the easier it becomes, and just like strengthening a muscle, you will soon have a strong boundary muscle to lean on. Boundaries are also highly important for managing your energy and cultivating a healthy sense of self. You Are Golden with Goodness In Tara Brach's new book, Trusting the Gold: Learning to Nurture Your Inner Light, she reminds us that inherently we are all made of the same goodness and that it's important to learn how to trust this inner light and goodness from within. This is the year to be kinder to yourself and speak to yourself with compassion, grace, and loving-kindness. Just as Tara shared about her practice of reminding herself to 'soften the edge', which helped her heal from an illness with ease, you also can speak to yourself in a way that can create calm, tenderness, and support. Maybe you start to call yourself something loving like 'sweetheart', 'darling' or 'beautiful'. Choose something that feels kind and comforting, and remember to see the goodness that always lives within you. Three Ways To Ground and Manage Your Energy Start noticing and tracking what helps you to feel enlivened, recharged, and in your own energy field. Keep a list and return back to these practices when you're feeling tired, low on steam and energy. As empaths, it's incredibly important to recharge your batteries and energy. Here are three ways that work for many empaths: 1. Take a bath, get into a pool, ocean, or lake. Getting into water can help to calm your nervous system 2. Take a walk outside to connect with the oneness of the plants, trees, animals and nature, and to get more vitamin D. 3. Spend time being quiet through meditation, journaling, drawing in a color book, using your rosary or mala beads, or lying still with your hand on your heart and breathing slowly and with intention.   Looking To Help Other Empaths Design Their Best Life?

    How to Design Your Best Life with Loretta & Té Monareng

    56:33

    Meet Loretta & Té Monareng Over the past three years, Loretta and Te have both traversed an intense transformative self-love and belonging journey, resulting in a desire to now help walk others home to their radiant selves and to shine their light.  Having both received Life Designer® Certifications, they are co-founding together, a life coaching practice, Light Your R.A.Y. (Radiant as Yourself), focused on serving ambitious individuals to overcome fears and limiting belief patterns to unlock their purpose and unique limitless potential in their life careers. A big part of Loretta’s self-love journey was around shedding her guilt and shame around her bi-sexuality and feelings of unworthiness tied up in her faith tradition that she was raised in.  Te’s journey began in humble roots in South Africa during apartheid and the revolution for equality amongst black South Africans.  He at times lost trust in people and in hope of a better world.  Té suffered from feelings of inadequacy that can come from living in poverty and oppression.  They are both deeply committed to and passionate about creating environments of love and belonging, healing from the wounds of rejection, racism, and systemic oppression through deep inner coaching work under the motto, "When there is no enemy within, the outside enemy can't hurt you".  They have created a unique three pillar coaching offering focused on Healing through Self Awareness, Discovering Your Light through Self Care, and Shining Your Light through Self Actualization.  Loretta and Te have traveled extensively and have a deep love for humanity, for cultural differences.  They enjoy daily partnership as they raise their beautiful four children in San Clemente, California.       Design Your Best Life It was a gift to get to know husband and wife power team Loretta and Té and their story of overcoming major obstacles in their respective lives. Both enrolled and graduated from my coach certification program, the Life Designer® Coach Academy, and truly emerged as transformed leaders and coaches wanting to focus on helping others design their best life. What you’ll hear in this conversation is how they both had to look at what was stopping them from living a life of true alignment and what was it that their heart desired that would be an authentic expression of their gifts and strengths. Much of their realization emerged from their coaching sessions in the coach program practicum and during powerful conversations that looked beyond the surface of current stories or limiting beliefs. That is the gift of coaching and learning to coach others. You will be inspired and empowered to learn how this couple both individually and collectively chose to step into their power and light, and how you can do this too.      The Power of Freedom on the Inside and Outside Loretta shared openly about growing up in a loving yet very religiously strict Mormon family and how her achievement was her way of feeling and being loved. She and her family lived in Kuwait, Africa, and all over the world and Loretta always assimilated and felt a oneness with humanity, no matter where she lived. Where she felt challenged with any sense of oneness, was with herself. She kept secrets from herself, including the realization of her bi-sexuality and desire to follow a more spiritual path versus a religious one. All of these secrets led to increased shame and a loss of her true self, which produced increased anxiety and a drive to create a successful life on the outside. Té, on the other hand, suffered quite a different kind of oppression. His trauma was in his outer world as he grew up in a poor part of South Africa where he became used to seeing poverty, hopelessness, abuse, and death. Instead of taking on the despair of his surroundings, he chose to believe that he would not become his father, who had left his family when he was young, and held on to words that were empowering. By creating such powerful and positive self-talk, Té was able to thrive and surpass the outer traumatic world to find his inner refuge. Hence, the quote and motto they both live by, which in essence is about making sure you are befriending and loving yourself versus being your own worst enemy, changed the course of Té's life. Together, as a power couple who supported one another's journey of growth and self-acceptance, they learned to heal from the inside out in their own way. Today they help others to do the same through their coaching as Life Designer® coaches.     A True Meaning of Belonging What haunted Loretta in her earlier years was never feeling a sense of belonging. She pursued freedom and let go of belonging to be able to come to herself. Today, Loretta embraces both belonging and freedom. I loved Té's definition of belonging, which is 'giving permission to belong to yourself". It's about taking off the blinders and truly being yourself. This only happens when we are in the present moment, and not too far off in the distant past or future horizon. As Loretta shared, belonging is the crossroad of assimilation and uniqueness. It's about being uniquely you and finding a common purpose. It's about finding the center point of your mind and your heart and staying connected to both.     How to Radiate as Yourself One of the things I loved about having both Loretta and Té in my Life Designer® coach mastery certification program was watching them both coach in action, and seeing how this work both transformed their own lives and now is helping so many other huge-hearted individuals to come home to themselves. They created an amazing coaching program steeped in this concept of the R.A.Y. S.H.I.E.L.D. which stands for Radiating As Yourself and the Shield is all about: stillness, healing, intuition, elevation, love, and delight. I was reminded of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs pyramid and believe their work is helping those who are awakening and wanting to shift their consciousness, to be able to design their life with deeper kindness, intention, accountability, and awareness.  I have watched both Loretta and Té do this in their own life, in their coaching practice, and with their beautiful family. In essence, learning to radiate as yourself means starting with being kinder to yourself and ultimately, finding refuge within that feels safe and loving, no matter what else is going on around you. Their powerful work is truly about belonging and freedom within yourself and within the world.     Interested in Becoming a Certified Life Coach?

You can find The Way of Miracles film at https://thewayofmiracles.com The Way of Miracles First off, I highly recommend that you find the time to watch The Way of Miracles! It is a stunning depiction of the power of love and healing that exists in all of us.    Here are some of the beautiful take-aways from this enlightened conversation: All healing starts with compassion and listening to your heart. It's about letting your heart talk to other hearts. There are actually two of you: your mortal self (the ego) and your immortal self (your soul). You can focus on the material world and self (your ego), or you can focus on developing your inner world and identifying with your higher self (our soul). Know your soul self and reorient your life to come from your soul self. Miracles are a natural part of life. You are a miracle. Give yourself the gift of 10 minutes of staring in the mirror, gazing at the center of your eye until you can feel your being. Become what you see! Start where you are. Start small, focus on daily gratitude and witness your thoughts, don't become them. There's nothing more important than miracles, and remember, you are most definitely a miracle.   Final Thoughts In The Way of Miracles, Christina Vircillo Bresson and Mark Mincolla, Ph.D., show us that healing truly does come from a place of love. Be sure to listen to this episode for all their insights on the presence of miracles in our lives.    Connect with Christina Vircillo Bresson Website: threeonecreative.com Instagram: @christinavircillo Connect with Mark Mincolla Ph.D. Website: markmincolla.com Facebook: @MarkMincollaPhD Instagram: @markmincolla LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/MarkMincollaPhD YouTube: youtube.com/user/markmincolla       Sacred Connection As always, this community is a sacred, safe place built on love and acceptance.

    The Spiritual Entrepreneur with Steve Nobel

    56:41

    Meet Steve Nobel Steve Ahnael Nobel is the author of 6 non-fiction books; the two most recent are a free Ebook entitled 'Starseeds.' And The Spiritual Entrepreneur. He was a director of a not-for-profit spiritual organization called Alternatives (based in St. James's Church, Piccadilly, London W1) for 13 years, leaving on the Winter Solstice of 2012. Subsequently, he began his own healing and awakening work. He has created a healing system called Soul Matrix Healing for Starseeds. He has created a library of free resources, including meditations and transmission to help Starseeds which are freely available on his website and YouTube channel. These meditations and transmissions are played all over the world, and so far, the platform has over 135K subscribers.    We talked about Starseeds, Steve's newest book, The Spiritual Entrepreneur, and reviewed spiritual practices, the laws of manifestation, and how to get in your highest vibrational flow. Definitely keep listening to the whole episode as Steve leads us in an amazing money manifestation meditation. So What Is A Starseed? Starseeds, as depicted in the book The Law of One, are wandering souls who are multidimensional and from other planetary systems. Starseeds often have a wake-up call or point in their life where they are suddenly awakened to a greater reality that doesn't fit their current reality. I'll share I've certainly experienced this a few times in my life. They don't like authority, often feel they don't fit in or belong, and have a strong ascension purpose, which is about moving from darkness to greater light on this planet. We are in a time right now of moving into the 5th density, which is a vibrational force and new consciousness here on this planet. Starseeds are all about helping to shift this consciousness and changing the paradigm of growth through suffering to abundance, freedom, and ease. Curious if after reading this, you feel you are a Starseed? Let me know. I'd love to hear your insights!   Waking Up The Planet As mentioned earlier, a key sign of a Starseed (often spiritual entrepreneurs) is feeling asleep at the wheel of life and then having a major wake up encounter in their life-be it a career change, divorce, health crisis, or religious confusion. Starseeds also notoriously have a big vision, in service to others, and want to change things. They talk freely about vibration, angels, and manifestation and come by this kind of discussion as though it's their first language. Steve Nobel reminds us Starseeds to embrace our weirdness, as this is your unique gift --- "your weirdness is your brilliance."       How To Manifest More Money Steve Nobel & I talked a lot about manifesting money and remembering that money is just energy. Energy can be moved by consciousness. Thus so can money. That is just part of the idea behind his book Spiritual Entrepreneur. Steve shared a powerful affirmation to build your relationship with money: "I am 100% open, deserving, and willing and worthy of accumulating all forms of wealth in my life." He reminded us of the quote by Wayne Dyer that states the one grand lie in life --- that the only limits we have, are the ones we believe. It's time to expand all limits about money and what's possible.     The Key Beliefs for Manifesting and Wealth The Universe is abundant The Universe wants me to prosper. All prosperity starts with belief. Money is an abstraction and is not real. Money is energy. Money has no intelligence of its own. Money will respond to the instructions you give it. Money needs to be valued. You must value money and it demands your attention. Money is vibration (and high vibration at that).   If you are anxious about money, you are in a lower vibration. A place to look first is how to become more grounded and higher vibration about money. Oftentimes money issues are about a lack of balance of feminine and masculine energy.  Final Thoughts Steve Nobel shares that his new book Spiritual Entrepreneur is about unfolding the beliefs regarding how to move the energy of money to manifest it more fully in your life. His core beliefs can easily be used as affirmations in your day-to-day life.

    Authentic Power with Ashley Bernardi

    38:03

    Meet Ashley Bernardi Ashley Bernardi is the founder of powerhouse media relations firm Nardi Media. She works with corporations, brands, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits to obtain high-profile placements in broadcast, print, and online media. Trained as a journalist at CBS News, nationally syndicated program energyNOW! on Bloomberg, and Washington Post Live, she has a natural ear for a story and a journalist's passion for research. The traumatic death of her father at a young age and diagnosis of Lyme Disease and postpartum depression after the birth of her third child deepened her passion for health, wellness, and spirituality. It taught her how to access her own authentic power to heal her life. She is a certified Life Designer® and received her certificate in The Science of Well-Being from Yale University. In addition, Ashley hosts the award-winning podcast 2 Girls Talking. Ashely is also the author of the new powerful book, Authentic Power: Give Yourself Permission To Feel. The oldest child in a proud military family, Ashley was born in Schweinfurt, Germany, and has lived and worked in New York City and Washington, D.C. She currently resides in Northern Virginia with her family. Ashley is a frequently featured expert in the media, including Forbes, Great Day Washington, Good Day DC, and more. Path to Self-Discovery If you have ever struggled with not letting yourself feel your emotions, pushing down trauma, feelings that are uncomfortable, or putting on a mask of strength to hide your pain or grief, this conversation is for you. There are so many insightful takeaways from Ashley's vulnerable journey of grief and healing from an illness that almost took her life. She noticed that she was caught in a wave of intense and messy feelings at the beginning of the pandemic that triggered old trauma and loss. Ashley decided to do something about this, and after an intuitive life coach session with yours truly, she realized that what wanted to be birthed was a book to help others learn to feel and heal through their own authentic power. Ashley set out to interview some of the top healers, physicians, luminaries, and leaders to dive into how we can all move through this time of greater uncertainty and fear with a greater sense of hope and real tools to experience your authentic feelings come out stronger.  Give Yourself Permission Ashley so poignantly shared that it will come out in other ways when you bury your trauma. This is what happened to her after years of people-pleasing, wearing a mask of 'everything is fine', hyper over achievement, and doing all the things to stay disconnected from her real feelings. On paper, it all looked good. Real good. Inside though, Ashley was a full-on disaster. She saw this play out in her workaholism, destructive relationship with alcohol and men, all while ignoring her feelings and trying her best to keep up with the world. Ashley Bernardi did this until her life came tumbling down after experiencing another double trauma --- being diagnosed with a mysterious illness, soon realized was Lyme disease and postpartum depression. Her body felt like it was shutting down, between losing control of her bowels, losing too much weight, not digesting food, dizziness, feeling like she had the flu, and no control of her body. Ashley cried out to God for help and surrendered at a level she had never experienced before. Although bedridden, after this deep surrender, Ashley began tuning into her feelings and soon noticed that she felt better. Healing was happening because she was processing her feelings, not avoiding them. This powerful lesson is much of what inspired Ashley to write the book, Authentic Power: Give Yourself Permission To Feel to help others suffering from a lack of full permission to feel and express their emotions. How to Heal One of the key insights that Ashley Bernardi gleaned from this excruciating yet transformative experience was that there is no one-size-fits-all for healing. When you give yourself permission to feel, you tap into your own authentic power allowing for massive transformation. Her goal was to help others also going through challenging feelings to know it's ok to take off the mask of strength and feel whatever comes up. One of the best ways to dive headfirst into your feelings, which for many of us, can feel like saying I want to take a walk in a landmine, is to get curious. Use the blessing of curiosity, which is one of the key components to being a coach, and the coaching work Ashley did in the Life Designer® Coach Academy for coaching mastery, and look for the answers from within. Some of the questions to ask yourself are: Where is this emotion showing up in my body? And what might this feeling be telling me or showing me?  Feel to Heal We also talked about Ashley's helpful FEEL framework, which she came up with organically when learning how to feel her emotions during her healing process. Here's the FEEL overview, which we hope will help you as you move through whatever it is you are facing.  F - Focus on your emotion, don't avoid it! E - Enter into that emotion rather than push it down. E - Experience your emotions and feelings, no matter what they are. None are good, bad, right, or wrong. They will pass.  L- Listen, Learn and Love that emotion back. Listen for what it's telling you, learn what the lesson might be, and shower  your emotion with love.  Final Thoughts I asked Ashley Bernardi how she finds time and space to feel remnants of grief, sadness, or whatever she might be feeling. She very wisely shared that she takes breaks throughout the day to pause, feel, and take 10 breaths to reset. You can always make time for yourself, and it's imperative that you do so, too! She shares another great tip in her book, Authentic Power: Give Yourself Permission To Feel, from Dr. Jamie Hope, a dear friend and amazing ER physician, author, and leader. Dr. Hope talks about stressing hard and stressing soft. We're meant to experience stress, and it's about knowing how to give yourself what you need to deal with your stress, whether that might be throwing old dishes against a wall, hitting a 'dammit doll' (love that), punching your pillow. In the end, this is all about honoring you, your emotional landscape, and whatever feelings are here to be expressed. You, and your feelings, are sacred and the most important thing is to remember your authentic power and start by giving yourself permission to feel.

I've interviewed all of them on this show, and I highly recommend any and all of their interviews as well. She spent ten years working on this film with the intention to show how we are all connected and part of a greater unified field. You will be swept away by the beautiful experiments and results shown in the film, making a case for a greater unity consciousness amongst humanity.   Her NDE (Near Death Experience) Tsipi Raz shares that she has always been a realist until her life changed in her early 30's after experiencing an intense NDE. She had fallen asleep next to her young daughter only to find herself floating at the top of the ceiling while watching her sleeping body on the bed. She could feel herself drift to the sky and then a beautiful light that made her feel like she was going home. Somehow she reconnected back to her body and forgot about the experience until reminded a few days later and a week after this encounter when her brother suddenly passed without a health issue or illness. This near-death experience cracked open her consciousness and ability to see, hear and feel with greater psychic awareness. This led to Tsipi's desire to see the hand of the divine and ultimately move from covering wars and destruction to creating a film that makes a case for our unity and healing abilities. This NDE was a catalyst for one of the many signs from the Universe leading her towards her life's mission.  Signs from the Universe During the long ten years of running out of funding and wondering how she would produce such an extensive film to be shot and filmed all over the world, she saw many signs from the Universe that kept her hope and determination alive. Tsipi Raz shares how the name of the movie was a sign in itself. You'll want to hear the story for yourself, but her explanation of using the name, The 1 Field, was certainly divinely inspired. There are constant signs from the Universe happening around us, and it's up to each of us to pay attention and follow the divine bread crumbs.  The Big Vision The big vision for this film was to go from thinking and filming war, duality, and conflict to bringing about peace and uniting humanity. Tsipi does this through powerful experiments showing the healing effects of music and sound on blood and the energy shifts that occur when others tap into their heart energy. This film will certainly inspire you to follow your own big vision and remember that we are all connected.  Final Thoughts While Tsipi Raz had a near-death experience to bring her closer to her life purpose, not everyone needs such extreme measures. She explains how there are always signs from the Universe gently guiding us along our path if only we are open to seeing them and willing to accept their guidance as truth.  Connect with Tsipi Raz YouTube Sacred Connection As always, this community is a sacred, safe place built on love and acceptance.

To learn more about Julie and how she might support you on your You-est You journey, go to juliereisler.com. I'm thrilled you're here. I think of you as a friend, whether we've met yet or not. I have loved recording these solo episodes over the past year. I hope they add value, meaning, and impact in your life and remind you that you are definitely not alone in overcoming inner struggles and challenges on the journey of being your You-est You. If you're listening to this episode, my hunch is that you might be curious to learn more about how to find your purpose. In this solo episode, I chose to tap into faith and divine guidance by picking three You-est You declaration cards. I hope this conversation resonates at the deepest level.     The Power of Joy The first card I pulled was Joy. Joy is incredibly undervalued. The vibration and energy of joy is similar to that of love, compassion, and peace. When you tap into joy, you connect to your spirit, that part of you that is in the flow and has the most positive energy connection. It's also easy to manifest when you are vibrating at joy. While most adults put it low on the priority list, joy is the elixir to feeling better and more aligned to the divine. For manifestation, joy needs to be prioritized; it needs to be put back at the top of your list. I know this is an area I'm working on, and I invite you to see how you can make more time for joy and happiness this holiday season and in the new year. If you are at a loss for what brings you joy, look to see what made you feel alive, lit up, and empowered when you were little, or think of a most recent situation when you lost all sense of time because you were so engaged in what you were doing, seeing or experiencing. These can lead us to the clues of what brings us joy. Another cousin to joy is gratitude. If you're really struggling with what you're finding joyful, look to see what you appreciate and naturally feel grateful for. Eventually, hanging in the land of gratitude will bring you to the land of joy.   The Why of Your Purpose The second card I pulled was Purpose, and to me, the best way to find your purpose, which doesn't have to be one thing, especially for you multi-passionate and purposeful lightworkers and entrepreneurs, is to go to your WHY. Ask yourself first about what you feel passionate about and what you would get up in the middle of the night and do for free. That's a great indication of where your purpose will be. Then ask yourself, why is this topic or idea so important to you. Reflect, journal, and keep asking yourself "why," and follow up with "is there anything else" until there is nothing left to write. You can do this for all areas of your life; career, family, health, spiritual, and relationships. Ask yourself the deeper life coach questions like, "What feels important to me right now with my health, time with my family, my career, connecting to spirit, self-care and making time for friends, and why?" I'd love to hear what you come up with and would invite you to take note of your why and create why purpose statements that you can review daily. You might write them out, record yourself saying them and listen to them each day, or even create cards or a vision board with your purpose statements. You are allowed and encouraged to have more than one purpose. For example, your purpose might be to be a loving partner who communicates openly, directly, and kindly with your spouse, partner, or significant other. You might also decide that communication of all kinds is your purpose in your career, which could look like speaking up about inequality of pay for women, or sexism, or whatever topic you feel on fire about. There is no right or wrong way to do this; the only incorrect way is not to do it at all.   The Abundance Equation The third card I chose was Abundance. I love these three cards because when you put them in this order; Joy, Purpose, and Abundance, you get an equation that I find to be spot on. The abundance manifestation equation is: Joy + Purpose = Abundance. What was serendipitous to me was that I wrote about this in my book, Get a Ph.D. in YOU, specifically in chapter 11, Purpose and Passion, and talked about this very equation. When you focus first on connecting to your higher self, your heart, and your joy, you naturally start to focus on ways to be of service and share your purpose, which ultimately leads to living in abundance. An abundance of all kinds, including opportunities, meeting great people, wealth, health, and ways to add greater value.    Your Purpose is Calling I hope this episode was helpful to you, my friend, and I would love to hear what you come up with when you reflect on the deeper questions about your why, passion and purpose. I believe we all have a deep yearning to add value, be of service, and spread joy, and that ultimately the greatest gift is the freedom to be self-expressed and to feel connected to your most authentic self, your You-est You.    Final Thoughts As you wrap up 2021, I invite you to take these 3 steps of finding your purpose into consideration. To look back over the past year and search out where you felt joy in your life. It doesn't have to be grandiose moments in time, but it can be small moments that filled your heart with great joy in a quiet way. Take those moments and see how you can replicate those for finding your purpose in 2022. Through finding your purpose, and it doesn't have to be career-related, you will open the doorway to living in abundance—an abundance of love, friendship, opportunities, and, yes, perhaps financial wealth.        Sacred Connection As always, this community is a sacred, safe place built on love and acceptance.
