Energy Matters – A Conversation About The Law Of Attraction, Abraham Hicks and The Three Principles Part Two

Energy Matters – A Conversation About The Law Of Attraction, Abraham Hicks and The Three Principles Part Two

ENERGY MATTERS

This is such an EXCITING conversation, it’s a follow up to last weeks podcast episode. I’m releasing this podcast episode early because this Friday, January 18th Dominic and I will be doing a LIVE webinar. If you would like to be part of that conversation the link is below.

I really enjoyed the chat I had with Dominic in the last episode but this one really brought it home for me. In our last episode, we talked a lot about the theoretical background behind the LOA, the teachings of Abraham Hicks and the Three Principles now we get into the juicy stuff. If you haven’t listened to episode 14 I highly recommend you start there. 

In this fun conversation we chat about:  

  • The practical aspect of the LOA and the teaching of Abraham Hicks;
  • Why the direction of your attention matters;
  • What is abundance; and
  • The power of internal resonance versus dissonance.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • When you try to conceptualize pure energy you are attempting to put form to it, however, you conceptualize it will never capture the full potential of it;
  • We live in a world of overflowing abundance, the direction you look in matters. Why not focus on overflowing abundance;
  • The direction of your energy, essence determines the path that you are on, it’s a great thing to pay attention to (for a variety of reasons);
  • Receiving, willing, allowing are all about resonance and a good feeling; and
  • The purpose of life is JOY.

My conversations with Dominic always leave me feeling inspired. His energy and love of life are so infectious. This was a great conversation that really cleared up a lot of what is meant by the Law of Attraction and the teachings of Abraham Hicks. I’m really grateful to Dominic for taking the time to have this conversation and I can’t wait for the upcoming live webinar.

Thank you so much for listening. If you enjoyed this episode I would be really grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes. If you have any comments or feedback please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Energy Matters – A Conversation About The Law Of Attraction, Abraham Hicks and The Three Principles

Energy Matters – A Conversation About The Law Of Attraction, Abraham Hicks and The Three Principles

I love conversations with people who exude wisdom and passion. I have previously tried to understand the Law of Attraction but never felt that I fully grasped the understanding. I met Dominic at a three principles workshop and was intrigued to learn that he had a deep understanding and passion for the law of attraction and Abraham Hicks. I was thrilled to chat with him. There is always something to learn from showing up in a conversation with an open mind. I have learned so much from him and wanted to further the conversation with Dominic on my podcast.

Dominic Scaffidi is an Executive Coach who is grounded in the three principles understanding and is also a student of Abraham Hicks. Prior to my discussions with Dominic, I thought this combination was unique, however, after several conversations I see the complementary nature of these understandings. I’m really grateful for this conversation. 

We take a deep dive into:  

  • The Law of Attraction and the teachings of Abraham HIcks;
  • The Three Principles understanding; and
  • How the understanding of Abraham Hicks and the Three Principles are complimentary.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Thought is so powerful, it has incredible momentum, and is the missing link between the spiritual and physical;
  • Thought is the creator, feeling is the indicator of that thought, there is so much information in the feeling;
  • You are always creating your own reality, what you consider as magic or miracles can be reframed into your system of beliefs and takes on a completely different form; and
  • When something is true life will teach it to you, I love the simplicity of this.

I could have talked to Dominic for hours, he is such a wise soul and his passion is infectious. This was a great conversation, but a bit more theoretical than both of us expected. We have decided to continue the conversation to discuss the LOA and the teachings of Abraham Hicks from a more practical standpoint. More of that in episode #15. We are also going to do a live webinar on Friday, January 18th to open this conversation to a wider network. 

If you enjoy this conversation I would be really grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes. If you have any comments or feedback please don’t hesitate to reach out. I really enjoy reading your emails and welcome your input fur future episode ideas.

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

Intuitive Eating and The Wisdom Behind Living A Healthy Life

Intuitive Eating and The Wisdom Behind Living A Healthy Life

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to 2019 with curiosity, wonder and love.

My conversation with Danielle Lithwick is a perfect way to start the new year on the CPR of Life podcast. Danielle is an Intuitive Eating Coach, body positivist and Personal Trainer. I met her at a social event focused on connection – one of my favourite things. Much of what Danielle points to in her work is parallel with the understanding I work from, that we have innate wisdom within that is available to guide us. Danielle points to this wisdom in her work as a coach and trainer. I enjoyed learning more about her as well as what she does. Danielle is a sweet soul, I enjoyed connecting with her.

During this conversation we chat about:

  • What being body positive means;
  • The ten principles Danielle focuses on as an Intuitive Eating Coach;
  • Why it’s important to honour your hunger; and
  • Emotional eating.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Our innate wisdom includes healthy eating signals;
  • There is a difference between respecting your body versus loving your body;
  • The concept of ‘ideal’ is made up, and differs from person to person, therefore searching for the ideal is futile; and
  • Trust the wisdom of your body, it will never lead you wrong.

I loved the message Danielle promotes, it’s one that makes a lot of sense to me. In my opinion, it’s one that everyone should embrace. Danielle has a vast amount of experience and she definitely embraces her message. She has a great new program coming up, the details are below.

This conversation was a great example of how we have an inbuilt capacity to deal with every aspect of life. Letting go and leaning into trusting our innate wisdom is a beautiful way to start this new year.

Thank-you for listening. I would be grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes. If you have any comments or feedback please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

Much love,

Jessie-Lynn

Just Play

Just Play

Just Play 

This is the last podcast episode before Christmas. For those of you who celebrate I want to wish you a Happy Christmas. I hope that you take time to pause, this time of year can become overwhelmingly busy. Take time to pause, listen to your body and exercise your right to say no and most of all enjoy the moment.

People schedule themselves back to back, have late nights, and have a tendency to eat and drink more at this time of year. While this hopefully is a lot of fun, it can also lead to higher levels of anxious and sad thoughts, and more low mood thinking. This is often the result of being overtired, not eating well, not taking the time to pause.

So my wish for you is this: enjoy the amazing power of connection with your loved ones, and also with yourself. Listen to your wisdom, when your body and mind has had enough, needs some rest, needs time and space to let the dust settle be extra kind to yourself. Give yourself the gift of time, have a nap (naps are amazing), read a book, go for a walk in nature, eat a healthy dose of fruits and veg. All are types of elixirs for the mind and/or body.

I’m going to close out the year with a personal chat on the next episode. This week I have the pleasure of connecting with Nick Bottini. Nick and I went through Clarity coach training together. First and foremost he is a beautiful soul, as well as an author and coach working in the music industry. Nick has just released a book Just Play, it’s a beautiful read that I highly recommend to those who are curious about the connection between state of mind and flow state. 

In this wonderful conversation Nick and I talk about:

  • The psychology of performance;
  • Mental health and the flow state in performance; and
  • The process of writing a book.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Mental health (being mentally healthy) is the same for those in the music industry, sports, artists, business, etc. it’s the same for all humans ;
  • Searching for the magic in the success of others is futile, your own magic is within;
  • Resilience isn’t defined by hard work, practice, etc. it’s something innate. We don’t have to search for it. It is within each and every one of us; and
  • If you go looking for ‘flow state’ outside of yourself you will go on an endless search.

I have to be honest when I first picked up Nick’s book I was interested in reading it because he had written it. I wasn’t far into the book when I realized the message in his book is one that all humans, whether performers or not should hear. I encourage you to pick up a copy.

I’m loving the feedback and personal notes. If you have any comments or feedback please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

Much love,

Jessie-Lynn

Live Your Best Life 101

This episode is a great one. I loved my conversation with the witty and wise Amir Karkouti. In addition to being a loving husband and father, Amir owns several restaurants, he’s a kick-ass coach and works at a recovery centre. I had the honour and pleasure of participating in a Professional Coaching course with Amir and Ankush Jain, it was a such a fabulous journey. The two of them work together in such an inspiring and complimentary way. What I’ve seen with Amir time and time again is that he shows up fully and gives with such an open heart.

This conversation is a great one, among other things we chat about:

  • Taking action despite the quality of our thinking in the moment;
  • Even if we look different from the outside, we are all looking for the same thing on the inside;
  • When we are trying to figure out life from a conceptual place we are not living; and
  • The power of showing up and doing our best.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • The secret ingredient in life, coaching, business, etc. is showing up as YOU;
  • There is no-one who can do you better than you;
  • Life flows much better when we are not caught up in trying to conceptualize everything; and
  • The heart of the matter IS what matters.

How Are You Showing Up?

How Are You Showing Up?

How are you showing up?
 
This is a conversation I’ve been having a lot lately. Whether with kids, individuals or business owners the question remains the same. So what do I mean by this?
 
I was having a conversation with my son a few Mondays ago. He was complaining that Mondays suck. I told him that he had been given the gift of the day. What he did with that gift was entirely up to him. He could show up to school, with his friends, etc. in a low state of mind, complaining because it’s Monday or he could appreciate the gift he’d been given and enjoy the day. Be curious and open and see what unfolded for him in the day.
 
I’ve had the same conversation with business owners/employees, and with individuals who are struggling and feeling stuck. What is the quality of your thinking like? Are you feeling curious? Are you showing up with an open mind and an open heart? Or are you feeling judgemental?
 
This simple question is one to ask yourself. You have been given the gift of time, how you show up and what you do with that gift depends on how you are showing up. Try a little experiment – think of the energy around your state of mind. How does it feel in your body if you are facing a day, situation, etc. with a negative, judgemental lens? Now switch it up and think of how it feels to face your day, situation, etc with a curious, open-minded lens? Can you feel the difference? What energetic space would you rather spend your time in?
OWN IT! Take charge of how you are showing up. If you choose to look at the world through a lens of Mondays suck it will. It’s not rocket science, you will look for and find evidence to support your story. Or you can show up with gratitude, with curiosity and an open mind and see what unfolds. 
 
As a new week unfolds I encourage you to ponder this and see what comes up for you.
Much love,
Jessie-Lynn
Parenting With An Open Mind

Parenting With An Open Mind

“We all have innate health and innate wellbeing at our core.

We were born with it and it stays with us for life.”

Parenting is beautiful, hard, incredibly rewarding, frustrating, and the most powerful role you will ever have in your life. After a two week break due to a death in the family, I’m happy to release a new podcast episode. This conversation with the beautiful Mandy Spray is a must listen to for all you parents, parents to be, or those working with children.

Mandy is a certified Innate Wellbeing Facilitator and a Clarity Coach and Trainer. Mandy was one of my mentors when I did the facilitator training at Innate Wellbeing. She has such a lovely presence, and her wisdom whispers through her words and presence.

On today’s episode we discuss:

  • Why it’s important to have conversations with parents when working with children. From my experience, it’s necessary for them to understand what we are sharing.
  • Society as a whole will benefit when we stop seeing teenagers as a problem.
  • The science behind what is happening as our children progress through the teenage years.
  • Blame, shame and guilt should not have a seat at the parenting table.

This conversation was filled with some many good takeaways. Not just for parents but for everyone. As Mandy said, this understanding is the same for everyone. I love Mandy’s gentle way of going deeper into a conversation. This is where we breakthrough what appears to be happening and get to the heart of the matter.  

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • We often create stories about our children and then look for evidence to support the story. When we discover how the mind works we see how often we get caught up in our own thinking.
  • What we think is going on and what is actually happening are often very different.
  • Parents are human too! Taking the time and space to let our minds settle, just as we ask our children to do is a step towards a more peaceful and loving relationship; and finally
  • Lead with love.

If you enjoy these conversations please feel free to share it with friends. Also, I would be grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes. If you have any comments or feedback please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

Much love,

Jessie-Lynn

Wisdom, Parenting and The Power of Deep Listening

Wisdom, Parenting and The Power of Deep Listening

What a wonderful conversation I had in this episode with Dr. Jack Pransky, a Three Principles Author, Trainer and Practitioner. Jack’s approach is the same but his work spans across many disciplines including prevention, parenting, health and wellness. I admire Jack and often use his books in my coaching or when I’m working with a group of children.

His passion for spreading his message is evident in his work, his writing and most importantly, in his presence. I had the pleasure of attending a workshop led by Jack earlier this year where I learned so much about the power of deep listening. The love and passion he has for what he does comes through in his books and is even more evident when you meet him in person. I hope you enjoy this episode. 

In this conversation we discuss:

  • challenges and approaches to parenting;
  • the power of deep listening;
  • how we create our experience; and
  • the power of being aligned with our own wisdom.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Wisdom is within each and every one of us, it’s like a quiet, gentle nudge;
  • Deep listening goes far beyond the words being spoken and being heard, embracing this will change your relationships. We are either listening or talking if we are talking we aren’t listening;
  • There is a lot of information to be found in being curious, especially when you are having trouble with someone;
  • Discipline that comes from a place of anger never achieves a good long-term outcome; and
  • Children learn from what we do more than what we say – a great question to ask yourself before you respond “what is my child learning from me? What do I want them to learn?

There were so many golden nuggets in this conversation. Parents, teachers or anyone working with children will find so many takeaways from this episode. I’m looking forward to the audio version of Jack’s books. I always find something new in them when I re-read them or use them in coaching sessions. I highly recommend all of Jack’s books. Links to the ones I use or share most often are included in the show notes. I hope you enjoyed this conversation.

If you enjoy the show please share and I would be grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes. If you have any comments or feedback please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

Much love, Jessie-Lynn

The Secret To Living A Beautiful Life

The Secret To Living A Beautiful Life

“The thing that has made the difference in my life is letting life flow through me.” Jacquie Forde

Life is meant to be lived to the fullest. In this episode, my guest Jacquie Forde shows us what it is like to live a life of being unashamedly human. She’s a mischievous and lovely soul who is always ready for a laugh. From a professional perspective, Jacquie is a kick-ass coach and speaker focused on raising consciousness by sharing an understanding of how life works. She is also the host of a fabulous new podcast – Unashamedly Human. I highly recommend you tune in to her weekly chats. 

I loved my conversation with Jacquie. I wish I had pressed record on the pre-chat, we shared a lot of wisdom and giggles. Our conversation covers a lot of ground, some parts quite serious and others just fun. Some highlights from our conversation include:

– the power of not trying to fit into a round hole when you are a square peg, embrace who you are;

– the power of knowing that no-one is broken and no-one needs fixing; and

– life is much more enjoyable when we let life flow through us instead of trying to control, analyze or change our experience.

I hope you enjoyed the giggles and conversation. It was lighthearted but also full of wisdom.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Anyone who is struggling with addiction, self-harming, etc. is looking for a different feeling, it’s a misunderstanding about their experience of life;
  • One of the things we keep pointing to in this podcast is the power of understanding how human experience works. The evidence of sharing this understanding continues to be life-changing for so many individuals. Jacquie’s study with young women dealing with depression is evidence of this;
  • Memory is just thoughts carried across time. It’s not fresh information, it’s old information that may or may not be useful in the present moment; and finally
  • Every experience in life has something to show you.

Empowering Women – Free The Girls

Empowering Women – Free The Girls

This conversation highlights the power of empowering women. It has such a massive ripple effect.

One of the reasons I started this podcast is to show the power of connection, potential, and resilience. This conversation exemplifies all of these qualities. In this episode, I have the pleasure of having a conversation with Selah Davenport, Operations Manager of Free The Girls, an organization that helps girls freed from trafficking live a life of freedom.

This is an area near and dear to me. There are many of us in the mental health and wellbeing industry who have much to offer in this area.

The world needs more of these conversations. The news is filled with what’s wrong in the world. Imagine what would happen if we focused on the amazing things individuals are doing in the world. When we focus on helping lift each other up, there is a ripple effect of goodness. 

Some highlights from our conversation include:

– the power of empowering girls after they exit trafficking and exploitation;

– the ripple effect of helping girls and women attain economic independence; and

– how donating gently used or new bras can make a tremendous difference in the lives of others.  

I hope you enjoy the conversation and feel inspired to help out in any way you can. If you have any comments or questions please reach out, I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time, be well, be inspired, be you.

Much love,

Jessie-Lynn
