TLS #190: Your questions answered – Getting into alignment, Myers-Briggs, ego flare ups, & more  

Today’s batch of questions was the largest ever! I am spending an hour talking on a wide range of subjects… ... From how to find alignment and set emotional frequency, how to handle ego flare ups, what to do about difficult co-workers, how Myers-Briggs affects flow (plus, why my own MB type changed), tips for picking good Airbnbs, and much more. This episode is perfect for anyone looking for a random assortment of subjects - with a special emphasis on flow, intuition, and travel.   [Tweet "“Find the flow within that season." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“Allow what comes to your mind in that moment be what you share." - @JessCLively"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   When's your next course?! How do you find flow with certain goals that may have deadlines or only possible in certain life seasons? What are your favorite things in Australia so far? How do you raise your vibrations? What are the techniques? Do you meditate, do you journal? How do you decide on your emotional state? How does trying to get into alignment look like for you? I am interested in taking one of your classes this year and would like to know more about how I should choose one or the other. How you keep from getting intimidated by new experiences? Where do you see yourself in five years? What are your thoughts on flow in how it relates to personality - particularly Myers-Briggs? How is flow different than personality? Could a high-P person not be in flow while a high-J person could? What was your Myers-Briggs type before and what is it now  and what your thoughts on it at this point? What do you do when you love what you're doing (work) but your environment (people) is just bringing you down? What advice do you have for people getting used to listening to their intuition? How would you combat the constant pull back from that side of us that doesn't want to separate itself from the ego? Do you have any advice on how I can hear my intuition in a more clear and recognizable way? What do you do when you recognize that your ego is flaring up? Do you have any tips or tricks for returning to alignment when in the middle of an ego flare-up? What do you think is the connection between flow and the intuition? Could you walk us through your typical day? How scripted are your podcasts? Do you just have an outline, or do you write out every word beforehand? Do you sometimes cry in the middle of the night when surrounded by an issue or problem? And if so, how do you get yourself balanced after? I'm still having trouble channeling my inner passions and expressing them to others. Any suggestions? Does the ego ever get more quiet or do you ever get more comfortable following intuition? How do you know if your intuition is speaking to you, or if you're fooling yourself with safe answers coming from the ego? Throughout your travels, have you ever struggled with having one of those days where you just want to sit in your AirBnB and do absolutely nothing but lay in bed and watch Netflix all day? Do you allow yourself to have that kind of downtime, or do you feel as if you should be constantly getting out and exploring whichever place you're visiting? How do you find that balance? What are your travel plans in Australia? How do you plan where you want to go and for how long? As a small business owner, are you able to deduct all this travel and expenses from your taxes? Has the book on work and worth has been put on hold? Any plans to continue work on it and publish? Any tips/tricks for finding a great Airbnb? Could you share some of your favorites? Can you talk more about the influence you have received from Oprah in your life?   SHOW NOTES   Intentions Workshop Alignment Workshop Life With Intention Online

TLS #189: Quantum Living: Why we don’t have to work as hard as we think we do  

Today’s episode is out to answer the question: Do we need to work as hard as we think we do? … And if not, how can we get the results we want without hustling as much as humanly possible? I’ll be explaining what Albert Einstein proved to be the most pivotal element of the work/results equation on the quantum level... and how you can use this element to get what you want with flow instead of force in your own life. This episode is perfect for anyone interested in learning how to get the best results possible, or for anyone looking to understand why pure ‘hustle’ is not always the best path to our desired outcome.   [Tweet "“Frequency is tied to our emotional state." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“The flow starts happening when the frequency is high ." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“Just get into a positive state and take action." - @JessCLively"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   How I stumbled on the principles of quantum mechanics. How it is the emotional frequency creates the outcomes moving in our lives, not the intensity of the action.

Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit of a disconnect with you. And the show. I want to change that. So today I’m talking about things happening in my life which I have not been sharing (fully) on the show. I hope by sharing these truths - which are really just ego fears - we can be on the same page heading into 2017. I want to feel comfortable fully being who I have become as a result of all that I’ve experienced this year and share these new insights... with you.

  Today’s Lively Show we are having v, the author of Chasing Slow, and blogger behind, back on the show -- at her request! Erin has asked me to unpack and explain the “Lively lingo” that you hear on the show in the solo episodes and peppered throughout interviews as well. In this episode we cover a HUGE range of subjects and concepts that have yet to be discussed on the show… all stemming from three simple terms you’ve heard a lot about before. This episode is a thought provoking conversation around some leading edge ideas about consciousness, faith, rational mind, parenting, intuition, ego, and genius.   [Tweet "“The only thing that exists is right now.

She talks with Jess about the Ego and how it’s definition and explanation come from the teachings of Eckhart Tolle. Erin asks about the difference between optimism and faith, and how the role the Intuition plays. Jess answers the questions about the Ego vs Intuition and how your answers will come from your Intuition. They discuss the difference of the Intuition and the rational minds with examples from studies including the teachings of Albert Einstein. Jess describes the word Genius and how it compares to Intuition as the internal source to tap into to find the answers. They discuss alignment before action by using your intuition's guidance to place you on the correct path. Erin ask Jess about writing to your intuition as how it's about receiving rather than waiting for an answer. Erin mentions how parenting can be difficult for some people since not having control can place a burden on the Ego's sense of well-being. They talk about Growth and Expansion and how resistance can come up during the journey.   SHOW NOTES   TLS #001 with Erin Loechner TLS #184: A Magic Hour with Erin Loechner Eckhart Tolle Life With Intention Online Writing To Your Intuition Myers Briggs The Power of Now TLS #163: Alignment Before Action Anne Lamott Seth Godin (Quieting the lizard brain) Elizabeth Gilbert TED Talk on Genius Rob Bell / Everything is Spiritual Byron Katie     LISTEN TO THE SHOW

TLS #181: The counter-intuitive way to thrive in all areas of live with Jonathan Fields  

Today’s Lively Show is a wonderful conversation with author and podcast host, Jonathan Fields. Good Life Project, Jonathan’s podcast, is a wonderful show with incredible guests. And in case you’re interested, I’ve also been fortunate to have been on the show recently talking about masculine and feminine energy as well. In Jonathan’s newest book, How To Live a Good Life, is a deep dive into one of the most profound insights I’ve come across in the 2.5 years I’ve been hosting TLS. In today’s episode, we are going into a wide range of subjects including how to thrive in every area of your life - in a way that seems initially counterintuitive (which is why so many of us, including myself, have fallen into the trap that is in direct contrast to this principle). This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn about a powerful and simple principle that allows you to thrive in all areas of your life, particularly when you feel burned out.     [Tweet "“You’re a part of something bigger." - @jonathanfields"] [Tweet "“Mindfulness really happens not when you sit down to meditate but when you stands up to live." - @jonathanfields"] [Tweet "“Pay attention to the way you do things because it matters." - @jonathanfields"] [Tweet "“When we belong, everything gets better." - @jonathanfields"] [Tweet "“Know yourself and exalt being intentional" - @jonathanfields"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   He discuss what “living a good life” is how important it is to him to be present in the life of his wife and daughter. Jonathan explains his 3 buckets philosophy which is contribution, connection, and vitality. He tells us that Vitality is about optimizing your state of mind and body. Jonathan mentions that cultivating deep and meaningful relationships is important to the connection bucket. He explains how the contribution bucket is all about how you contribute to the world and how that interacts with you and the world as a whole. Jonathan discuss the three basic “laws” or rules of the 3 buckets since they need to be in harmony with each other to be effective. He discusses how cultivating awareness is the metaskill that flips the switch from being reactive to being intentional. Jonathan talks about the difference between “mindful” vs “mindfull.” He’s mentions the four different types of love and that it ok not to have all four types to fill our connection bucket. Jonathan speaks about the power of belonging and why it’s so vital. He describes the contribution bucket and how it’s the work we do in the world, whether or not it’s our job, career or something else. Jonathan goes over the “Ripple Not Thinking Wave” effect. He describes in detail about the word "generative" and it really means the state that everything falls into perfect alignment. Jonathan talks about Seeded Mindfulness Meditation and why it's about allowing and releasing.   SHOW NOTES   TLS #163: Alignment Before Action TLS #178: 10 Mindfulness Lessons from a retreat with Eckhart Tolle Ellen Langer TLS #101: Lewis Howes  TLS with  Kristoffer Carter Insight Timer App The Good Life Podcast with Milton Glaser TLS #179: with Adam Braun Abraham Hicks     LISTEN TO THE SHOW    

TLS #180: The Good News: Why our “suffering” only exists in the past with Byron Katie  

Today’s Lively Show is a HUGE honor for me to share with you. When I think of “dream guests” I would like to have on the show, author and spiritual teacher, Byron Katie, is one of the guests at the tippy top of that list. Byron Katie is an author of several books including my favorite, Loving What Is, and has created a simple, effective four question inquiry to help dissolve any ego suffering or resistance on any topic in life, which she calls The Work.   I’ve personally used The Work myself over the past five or so years on my own suffering and issues that my coaching clients have faced. In today’s episode, Byron Katie will be sharing how you can use this process in your own life and so much more. This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about presence, consciousness, and how to release psychological suffering on any subject.     [Tweet "“We are unlimited." - @ByronKatie"] [Tweet "“Self realization, until it’s lives, has no power." - @ByronKatie"] [Tweet "“I am the projector of my world." - @ByronKatie"] [Tweet "“Know yourself." - @ByronKatie"] [Tweet "“It’s the truth that will set us free." - @ByronKatie"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   Byron tells us how depression and self-loathing brought her to where she is today as a spiritual guide and teacher. She believes that the greatest teacher we have in our lives is our own wisdom. Byron talks about her four question inquiry and how that leads to freedom from suffering in life. She shows us that by understanding ourselves, we can understand others. Byron thinks that presence is pleasure, p since there is no suffering involved. She believes we are the cause of all our suffering and that physical pain is either remembered or anticipated. Byron mentions that if you understand the past you won’t have to worry about the future because it is understood. She discusses the concept of thinking about the future and how acting on it and having the mind and body can move as one to your intention. Byron tells us the importance of trusting oneself and why it is so important. She tells us how our identity can be lost when we question our minds.   SHOW NOTES   Eckhart Tolle Judge Your Neighbor worksheet No-Body Intensive Workshop     LISTEN TO THE SHOW

TLS #178: 10 mindfulness lessons from a retreat with eckhart tolle  

Two weeks ago, I spent a week in Costa Rica at a Deepening Presence retreat with Eckhart Tolle, the author of The Power of Now and A New Earth. I deeply loved the chance to spend so much time with someone who has such a strong connection to intuition/source on a daily basis. And today, I’m sharing 10 lessons that I took from the teachings which you can benefit from as well! This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about mindfulness, ego, or is a big fan of Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom.     [Tweet "“The past no longer matters." - @EckhartTolle"] [Tweet "“We can use thought without it using us." - @EckhartTolle"] [Tweet "“Action with pure presence is enlightenment.

What are the positive and negative aspects of Christianity and Buddhism. Why Eckhart believes that thinking  is the biggest addiction in the world. How presence and stillness moves towards presence in motion (or presence in action). What the Fartleks of Presence is the zen art of hurrying slowly. Is psychological fear necessary and how real is it? Does the Ego or your Intuition choose to be present? How loving yourself, the self image of who you are, is different than being yourself. When we follow our parent’s expectations (against our own internal knowing) for us, it spares them the suffering and places the suffering upon ourselves.  Is the Ego useful? What Eckhart Tolle think is enlightenment? The concept of "human being", where human is the physical form of our body on this planet and being is the essence, or our pure presence.   SHOW NOTES   Kim Eng Oprah Eckhart Tolle on YouTube Dhanakosa Buddhist Meditation Retreat Center Vipassana Meditation The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Eckhart Tolle - NOW Program     LISTEN TO THE SHOW

TLS #174: The words I’m using (and not using) which are making me happier everyday  

Today’s show is all about the building blocks of a happier thought life, and ultimately happier emotions and circumstances: words. Because when it comes to mindfulness, it’s not just about meditation and the observation of our thoughts, it’s also about our conscious choice and selection of the words we use to build thoughts, which create emotions, and ultimately attract circumstances - positively and negatively into our awareness. I’ll be dishing about the obvious and the very subtle and powerful word choices that have created more high energetic states in my life which may benefit you as well. This episode is perfect for anyone looking to access higher emotional states on a more consistent basis.   [Tweet "“What I consume, affects how I feel." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“We feel more worthy for the things we appreciate than the things we’re grateful for." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“Doing is not being." - @JessCLively"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   How the power of words and mindfulness can produce a shift in our emotions without the circumstances dictating the emotions. Why I try to stay away from negative idioms and how this can keep me in the present moment. What the energy and meaning behind swear words are when you choose to use them. What the word “should” means and how it creates an emotional state which often creates negative circumstances as well. Why I prefer to use the words “my ego” or “your ego” to produce different emotions. How I have become aware of the use of the word “but” and how to avoid using it and what that word resonates on an energetic, vibrational or emotional level.  Why I’ve been using the word “Appreciation” rather than the word “gratitude” in my everyday life. In terms of career, why I avoid “I am my career” since doing is not being. Why I’m mindful of the language I use about past relationships, since many words and phrases generally relate to negative rather than the love and care that was part of that relationship. Why I love Approval Affirmations and how it helps me in my everyday life.   SHOW NOTES   Freehand Hotels Regena Thomashauer Santosha TLS #124 with Brené Brown and Santosha “Santosha” Shirt Abraham Hicks The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle   LISTEN TO THE SHOW    

TLS #173 – My birthday wishes for biz owners, parents, college students & more  

On Saturday I turn 32. And as I’ve reflected on this past year, I thought it would be fun to share my birthday wishes for you - regardless of if it’s close your birthday right now or not. I’m sharing my wishes for those who are business owners, parents, college students, people who want to leave their jobs, people going through breakups, anyone who is feeling lonely, and more. My hope is that something shared in this episode connects with you and uplifts you in some way - big or small. : ) This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear a bit of encouragement in any stage in their lives.   [Tweet "“You can still love each other and still move on to the next chapter." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“There are no mistakes, just wonderful lessons to learn." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“When you get your love and approval from yourself, you’re more likely to listen to what your intuition has to say." - @JessCLively"] [Tweet "“Start asking people questions" - @JessCLively"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   For business owners, how dropping imposed deadlines can allow flow to take you from one thing to the next and release the grip you have on deadlines. For those people who dislike their current jobs, I wish you can find a value that you can practice in your current job everyday until your intuition leads you to the next job. For parents with young children, please don’t place your kids in a position to live your values, but rather help them uncover their own values.  For parents with older children, encourage and help them look within themselves to find the answers they are seeking and support them as they make choices. To the college students, my wish is that you start to bring practices of mindfulness into your life and begin to look into yourself and tapping into your intuition. For those going through a breakup, I wish you can find a way to find alignment from within instead of finding alignment within the relationship. For those in the dating arena, remember to find alignment first, then maintain it from within yourself (rather than from the relationship). For those who feels things have been taken away, I wish you can get grounded within yourself and find your internal alignment.  For those who are unsure what to do next, please try to find a way to flow in the meantime with what is showing up in your life. For those of you that are afraid to make a mistake, don’t worry about it - it’s all going to work out. For those who have made the wrong choice, give yourself that empathy and compassion and return to your intuition and follow it’s advice for you. For those of you feeling lonely, you’re not alone. When you find a way to tap into your intuition, you’ll find the guidance you need so you will connect with the part of yourself that is not lonely. Another way to combat loneliness is to connect and learn from teachers that you admire.  For those feeling overwhelmed, try taking things off your plate, or in other words, lighten your load. For those who need a “life plan”, take a break and relax, see what’s in front of you, and take one step at a time - let the knowing guide you. For those who worry a lot, give yourself compassion and empathy for it, so you can loosen it’s hold on you. For those who feel envy in social media, it’s not about what you see or hear, but it’s about how aligned you feel inside. For those facing negativity, don’t let their external mis-alignments affect your own internal alignment.   SHOW NOTES TLS #100: Elizabeth Gilbert TLS #127: with Brooke Castillo     LISTEN TO THE SHOW
