The Feeling of Being Limited – Especially Financially -TPS472

In today’s episode, I explore the idea of feeling limited, which I see as a corollary to feeling oppressed. I relate this to feeling financially limited. There are other emotions that can be part of feeling limited such as powerless.

Highlights

I recognize that when I don’t have the funds I think I need, I feel limited. People often feel limited financially.
The glass ceiling is a feeling of limitation.
Limitations can be external or internal. I explain.
What are your physical limitations?
When you face physical limitations, you have to decide if you want to push through or not.
The internal limitations can be on the feeling level, such as feeling tight or constrained, which might be expressed as “money is tight”.
What do you perceive is your limitations, and is there some action you can take to work through those limitations and feel more expanded?
Ask, “what would I rather be feeling other than limited?”
If you recognize that you need more people, ask the question, “How can I connect to more people in a meaningful way?”
When you want to connect to more people, it’s often necessary to overlook your differences and to look for the similarities.
For now, I’m hoping that you will take some time to get in touch with the feeling of being limited.
I have found that when you get in touch with the feelings of limitation that come from difficult childhood experiences or abuse, then you can move past those feelings and expand to a different place of consciousness.
If you’re seeking financial freedom, then you have to learn how to feel free.
Are you willing to go through the process of making the internal changes that are necessary to live the life of your dreams?
Making the necessary changes is easier if you work with someone else. In this day and age, trying to do it alone just isn’t a good idea.
Once you set your intention, then what you need will show up. You just have to recognize it when it shows up.
Just focusing on money is not going to get you where you have to go. Focusing on feeling goals will make a big difference.
I talk about the energy tune-ups I do.

Andrea Austin: An Exploration into Conscious Awareness -TPS 471

Andrea Austin is the Co-founder of My Conscious Wellness and Love Evolution, two organizations that deal with the expansion of conscious awareness through love. They use advanced consciousness-based technologies designed to balance and harmonize the subtle energy fields of the human form so people can easily let go of emotions, mental and physical traumas, and uncomfortable experiences.

Highlights

Andrea started out as an accountant. She shares how she switched to exploring conscious awareness after having an out-of-body experience.
She learned to trust that whatever came along was in her best interest.
Andrea began seeing the world with her inner eyes more than she had before.
In exploring what makes her happy, Andrea had to deconstruct previous concepts of what life was supposed to be.
There was a transitionary time when she had to understand that what she was seeing was not seen by everyone. She has learned to accept people where they are and not have expectations that are unrealistic.
Andrea hopes to show people that you can live in expanded consciousness and still be grounded in so-called reality.
There is a growing movement of people who are interested in learning how to cross between the two worlds.
Learn how to be an observer from a place of neutrality.
We talk about accepting our differences with other people rather than just searching for sameness.
I ask Andrea how she teaches people to be satisfied with who they are and where they are.
Andrea talks about the technologies that she and her partner use to help people develop expanded awareness.
Going from A to Z doesn’t necessarily mean you’re moving in a straight line.

The Value of Allowing Life to Happen Through You – TPS470

I recently watched an interview on C-SPAN with Ursula Burns, the first Black female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. I was impressed with her ability to allow life to happen through her rather than working hard to make it happen. A great example of synchronicity.

Highlights

Brought up in a poor neighborhood, Ursula’s mother never let the kids know that they were poor.
I talk about how Ursula let her life happen rather than pushing toward a goal. The fact that she could not have conceived of being a CEO of a large company worked in her favor. I expand on this.
When you get yourself into the place where you allow your life to happen, you’ll get what you need to become who you are becoming.
It’s important to be satisfied with where you are and what you have and believe that what you need will show up but it will probably take longer than you want.
Problems and concerns are part of your journey.
I talk about the oppression that is prevalent in our society and relate something I went through via Microsoft that allowed me to feel controlled and powerless.
If you can recognize the situations when you feel controlled – or oppressed – it will allow you to process those feelings and not hold onto them.
When you hold things in rather than expressing them, it’s hard to let them go. It helps to talk to people about what’s bothering you – without kvetching.
Working through your emotions allows you to move your life comfortably forward.

Udo Erasmus: Everything You’re Looking For Is Already Inside of You – TPS469

Udo Erasmus is the co-founder of Udo’s Choice line of health products. He designed the machinery for making oils with health in mind and pioneered flax oil, a billion-dollar industry. Pesticide poisoning in 1980 left Udo’s doctors at a loss regarding treatment so he decided to take his health into his own hands.

His research and discoveries led him to a passion for finding the answers to life’s big questions. Udo is an acclaimed speaker and author of many books, including the best-selling Fats That Heal Fats That Kill. He teaches at events hosted by Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra, has given live presentations, interviews, and training in over 30 countries and has impacted more than 25 million lives with his message about health, peace, nature, and human nature. Udo has an extensive education in biochemistry, genetics, biology, and nutrition, psychology.

Highlights

Because he was born in the 1940s, during the war, the overwhelming uncertainty led him to be very curious. He explains.
What you are deep down looking for is already inside of you.
Udo gives suggestions for how to get in touch with the place within your heart that knows what’s right for you.
Being is more important than doing.
Your real purpose is found internally.
When the heart aches, people often turn to distractions. By focusing on success on the outside, we are trying to fix the hurt that is on the inside.
If you feel restless, you don’t have to do something, you need to sit still.
Your emotional state determines how you see and relate to the world. Peace has always been there, but if you’re not looking for it, you won’t recognize that it’s there.
When you’re in a place of peace and taking care of your inner needs, it’s easier to build a business.
When you feel cared for, you can flow with life.

Your Money Words Will Affect Your Financial Outcome – TPS468

What are the words you use when you’re talking to yourself or others about your money? In this episode, I explore various money words that you may be using that could be holding you back with your money and in your life.

Highlights

Whatever you are telling yourself is what your subconscious will believe is true and will work to make it true.
Worrying about money has nothing to do with how much money you have.
What are your thinking habits about your money?
Growing up, what were the words you heard about money and was it enough?
What happens when you think about using the word enough?
Do you say things like, “I can’t afford that,” or “I haven’t got enough money for that”? Or, are you willing to say, “I’m choosing not to do that today”?
If you can perceive yourself as having enough, then you’re more apt to have enough.
If you are always focusing on what you don’t have, then it’s hard to create more.
What are the words you use to describe your financial situation?
Are you developing authentic relationships with other people so you can both share what’s going on for you?
The money doesn’t matter, the connections you experience do matter.
Think about the words you use to describe your money, your life, your relationships. You get to choose the words you want to use to describe everything in your life, including your money.
I talk about experiments that have been done with water and other substances where words have affected the quality of whatever was used.
Are you willing to look at what you’re creating in your life with the words that you were using?
Take a look at the words you are using and decide if those words are helping you create a positive life and business.
Do you have people in your life with home you can discuss what’s bothering you, not from a place of complaining but rather looking for solutions?
Your expectations are defining what you’re probably going to create, and the words you use help to define those expectations.

Lee Tomlinson – The Compassionate Care Crusader – TPS467

Lee Tomlinson had a life many would have considered charmed. He has been a successful world-trotting tennis pro, international businessman, major Hollywood film studio owner, award-winning TV producer, and the marketing genius behind the American Film Institute’s 10-year long 100 Greatest Movies.
Then, his world crashed down when he was diagnosed with Stage III throat cancer and underwent months of painful treatments. As a result of his experience with the healthcare system, Lee is now known as the Compassionate Care Crusader. He is on a Mission to Restore Compassion to healthcare, healthcare professionals, and the world at large! In his new book, Compassion Heals: From Self-Care to Healthcare, Lee’s message is about the power of compassion to heal mental, emotional, and physical pain – for others and ourselves.

Highlights

Because of his unusually active lifestyle, Lee has had more than the usual interactions with the healthcare system.
After his cancer diagnosis, we went through months of agonizing treatments and suffered from a sepsis infection. Lee shares how he felt like he was being treated like a “piece of meat”. No compassion.
When he was at his lowest point, a doctor friend convinced him to speak publicly about the effect of care without compassion.
Everything that divides us can be healed with compassion.
We are genetically programmed to need connection.
Lee shares techniques that we can use to show compassion for ourselves.
You have to take care of yourself and be healthy before you can help anyone else.
The most successful businesses are those that treat their customers and employees with compassion.
Don’t allow others to treat you without caring and compassion.
Compassion is necessary for the best outcome for a practitioner’s patients.
There is a movement now within the healthcare industry to learn compassion because they understand that their income depends on it.
Compassion is teachable, repeatable, and an undeniable healing and business benefit.
Each of us has to learn to speak up and demand compassion.

Improve Your Relationship with Time – TPS466

Entrepreneurs often complain that they don’t have enough either time or money. I have often spoken about the non-enough-money issue. In this episode, I talk about feeling that you don’t have enough time and how to develop a better relationship with time.

Highlights

I talk about my long history of examining the issue of time.
Staying focused in the present moment was often what I focused on in meditation. I often use the mantra, There is no past, there is no future, there is only the here and now.
Time is a series of nows, and if you’re focused on the past or the future, you are missing your life.
When you are focused in the moment, you are allowing things to happen rather than forcing things to happen.
I talk about age and how each decade is like a different phase of our lives, and I give some definition to each of the phases.
People often worry about how much time they have left and there is no way of knowing. So pay attention to today and what you feel the urge to do for yourself today – or perhaps for others.
Take the time to be with people because being with people allows you to feel more connected, which is extremely important. People who have good relationships live longer.
How do you complain about not having enough time? You have as much as you have – even though you don’t know what that is.
Are you leaving enough time in between activities for new ideas and information to come through?
If you are keeping yourself constantly busy and are always pushing to get to the next thing, you are missing a lot of your life.
Give yourself the time to do whatever makes you comfortable.
Time is a gift and you have to decide how you want to spend it.

Navy SEAL Training Set the Tone for His Success with Marty Strong – TPS465

My guest today is author and CEO, Marty Strong. Marty spent twenty years in the Navy’s elite SEAL Teams learning effective leadership skills and mastering the art of turning vision into actionable strategy. After his service, he spent seven years as a financial advisor and portfolio manager with UBS before moving on to become a C-Suite executive. Marty’s new book, Be Nimble, is set for release in Fall 2021.

Highlights

Marty shares how he decided to become a Navy SEAL and what’s behind the people who don’t make it through the training.
We talk about the 80-20 rule regarding success with the SEALs and for entrepreneurs.
You can teach tenacity, but you have to know how to teach it.
Being exposed to risk-taking as a child helps prepare you for being an entrepreneur.
Serial entrepreneurs often use failures as a strengthening exercise.
I asked Marty what drove him to be in the financial industry. It wasn’t planned.
Marty has the ability to go with the flow of life and not resist change.
Marty was not afraid of failure and over time, became a good problem solver.
Because of his family background, at an early age, Marty realized that he had to learn how to take care of himself.
We discussed whether qualities of strength and resilience are inborn and the person.
There are different ways of handling different forms of failure. Marty often looks at seeming failure as an opportunity to make changes.
When he was writing his book, Be Nimble, Marty asked himself the question, “Why am I the person to write this book?”
We talk about how people react to financial issues, including up and down income.
Most things in our evolution aren’t linear. There are always ups and downs. Marty tells how the lives of presidents Grant and Truman illustrate this principle.
I asked Marty if he was born with the name Strong. He was.

Preparing for YOUR New Normal – TPS464

As the world is moving out of the Covid nightmare, each of us has the opportunity to create what we want to be our new normal. In this episode, I make some suggestions as to what we can do internally to create the life that’s right for us.

Highlights

Watch your self-talk and decide to stop talking to yourself like a critical parent. I give suggestions.
When you begin to treat yourself the way you’d like others to treat you, you’ll start drawing in people who treat you that way.
It’s up to you to decide who and how you want to be in the future.
Listen to your language when you are talking to yourself or to others. Are you always looking at the downside? Are you looking for sympathy or complaining? It helps to see the positive side of life.
Stop judging other people. They are doing the best they can at this point in time.
As you change your relationship with yourself, people who are a reflection of the new you are going to show up.
Examine your expectations. Do you expect people to embrace you or push you away? Do you expect to be a success or are you afraid of being disappointed? Your expectations are shaping your life stories.
What are your expectations of other people?
Notice your internal experience of whatever is going on. Recognize when you’re contracted, take a breath, and imagine your expanding.
Start noticing when you’re being defensive. You have the power to protect yourself.
Are you afraid about being treated badly causing you to push people away?
When people criticize you, they are really telling you about themselves.
I see that feeling sorry for yourself or feeling oppressed go deep within our culture. I talk about dealing with those two feelings.
The more you allow your life to happen, rather than trying to make it happen, the better you will get at creating what is right for you.
This is the perfect time to ask yourself if you want to go back to doing and being who you were or do you want to dig deep inside yourself and find a different way of being.
It’s okay to ask yourself how you want to change and to develop the support you need as you go through the change.

Here Is What Happens When You Finally Let Go – TPS463

Today I’m going to bring some things to conclusion and open up the door to what might be lying ahead. In this episode, I talk about the fact that I’ve been trying to prove that if you get yourself into the right place, whatever you need to become, who you are becoming will show up. I also explain what I had to do to make this happen.

Highlights

What can happen when you live in the moment and let go enough to let life happen?
It’s not what happens to us that matters but how we respond to what’s happening.
I came to realize that I can control the amount of positivity that flows through me as well as how I decide to respond to whatever is happening.
It’s a matter of truly becoming a person who is content and willing to lead with love.
You have to let your life evolve so you can discover who you are becoming. However, you will have hints along the way and they will be an arc from your childhood to your life as it evolves.
You need to have feeling goals.
You will learn that you have the power to create what’s right for you – and you alone.
We are living in an unusual time where many people are going through self-exploration and you have the opportunity than usual to discover new aspects of yourself.
When we tune into the feelings of the group around us, it often keeps us from understanding our individual feelings.
You get to decide how you would like to live your life.
Getting yourself to the right place means being willing to follow your inner urge because that’s the voice of the part of you that sees the bigger picture.
Life is a series of choices, then deciding if those choices are really working for you.
I talk about how I decided to become a virtual speaker and what I did – without pushing or marketing – that allowed it to happen.
I share an experience where I started sharing about the energy work I used to do and that I want to do again.
Getting yourself to the right place is not easy. I explain why.
You have the power to control what’s going on inside of you – and only you.
Listen to the advice that others give you, then evaluate what they’ve said in terms of if it feels right to you and if you want to follow what they’ve suggested. This includes when you’re working with a coach.
