Today we have a very special mindfulness exercise that will help you relax, rewire, and quiet the mind. This exercise can be done any time of the day, and overtime you can use it while going about your daily activities!

Okay, this is a meditation or exercise I use quite frequently, especially over recent days as I’m doing some pretty fun rewiring of my mind, and I’m going to have you do it at first, slightly different from how I’m doing it.

The goal of this meditation is to help you catch repeated thoughts before they start creating an endless loop in your mind. Ideally we get to learn how to drop all thoughts, but it’s the repeated offenders that get us the most. It’s said we have 60,000 thoughts a day, and that 90 some-odd percent of those are the same thoughts over and over again.

So those are the thoughts we’re going after…

Next I’d like you to imagine one of the most positive experiences of your life. It could be something recent. It could be from your childhood. It could the birth of a child. Your wedding day, or anything else that made you feel on top of the world.

Today we have a very special meditation to help us release burdens and fears and vibrate at a higher level. This meditation is from our recent guest, career and life intuitive Sue Frederick. It’s called the Break Your Heart Wide Open Meditation, and it’s perfect if you’re having a rough day, tough time, grieving or need to let go of pain to help you raise your energy and move forward. I think it’s something we could all benefit from!

A brief note on this meditation, she’ll ask at one point you put your hand in front of your heart, with your thumb and forefinger together. I want to describe this too you. Please take your right hand and flip it palm up. Now place it palm up, right in front of your heart, up against your chest.

Keep it palm up, touching your chest, but touch your thumb and forefinger (first finger together so they make a circle). This in essence will be your scooper or shovel you’ll use in the meditation to help you remove and release pain, worries, and concerns. She’ll coach you through it, I just wanted to make sure you can visualize what you’ll do with your hand.

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor, and rate and review our show on iTunes, it’s by far the #1 way you can help cheer us on, and HELP others find the show. And yes, you get boatloads of karma points for doing so. Thank you so much!!!

Nov 10, 2015

We’re always talking about how YOU can improve yourself and YOU can change your life, but it’s often exhausting and filled with worry, and how do we know what’s best for us anyway?

Well if you’ve ever wondered if you’re trying too hard, striving in the wrong direction, or have no idea where to go-or how to right the ship, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking with Toesha Silver, and she’s here not a minute too soon! She’s the best-selling author of Outrageous Openness and the recently released Change Me Prayers: The Hidden Power of Surrender.

Today we’re going to talk about a very powerful way to live. It’s called Outrageous Openness, or how to be open to the world around us and the divine within or how to seek a divine plan so life happens through us, and for us, rather than by us. That plus why giving away your Seinfeld collection, may just set you free.

Topics Include:

  1. Life happening through you and for you, rather than by you
  2. Scammed by scammer, but the money returned
  3. It’s about creating space to allow
  4. Not about chasing, pushing, grasping
  5. Tosha’s Story
    1. Was very sick for 3 years
    2. Idea of offering to a force of love
    3. Not about asking for help with “my” problem
    4. What would happen if it stopped being my problem, my life, the “small self” ownership
    5. If I get out this life is now owned by you, show me the actions you want me to take
    6. Felt hopeless because illness had gone on so long
  6. How do you stay out of the trap of striving, wanting, and worrying
  7. Right action begins to happen through you
  8. So important to create space rather than pushing to make it happen
  9. Offer it to the divine and say “show me the first step”
  10. What’s the Trouble with the Law of Attraction
    1. The energetic part is great, we attract according to our vibration
      1. Keep vibration high will attract to that
      2. If it’s low (anger, darkness, etc.) will attract to that
    2. Trouble is, it’s often used to give a shopping list…like shopping list to Costco
    3. Problem is, there’s often a divine plan that’s far greater for us
  11. How do we let go without losing our grandest vision
  12. Think of what you’re doing on behalf of love, and love knows all the steps that need to happen
  13. Instead of saying I need say I offer
    1. Need hands open to receive.
    2. Become able to bless the obstacles
  14. Vision boards are beautiful, but very limiting, very small
  15. I am here to serve love,
  16. Think of inviting Love in as an ally
    1. Use very simple prayers (and meditation) of invitation
      1. Help me to center, help me to trust love
    2. Having a God Box – putting all of your worries in your God Box
    3. How to let go (of Seinfeld) and de-clutter
    4. Having a sacred fire with our vision boards
    5. The breadcrumb trail – when what you desire is offered to the divine you start to get shown a trail
    6. Offering does not mean passivity
    7. How to listen and hear – an inner knowing
    8. How do we cultivate the inner knowing
      1. Part is through the prayers – offering it over
    9. It’s not do more, strive more, give more, but instead get centered and OFFER back
      1. Completely different recalibration of your energy
    10. What Surrendering Really Means

Do you ever feel there’s greatness inside of you, a higher purpose or calling, something grander more meant for your life, if you could only figure out what it is or how in the world to tap into it. If so then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking with Derek Rydell prominent life, business, & career coach to Emmy and Academy Award Winner,s Fortune 500 execs, and evolutionary leaders in business, spirituality nad the healing arts. And he’s the best-selling author of several books, including Emergence: Seven Steps for Radical Life Change.

I must say, Emergence it one of the most radical books on life change I’ve read, but I mean that in a GREAT way.

For Derek Rydall empowers you to be your most amazing self, one much grander than you ever could have imagined!

So today we’ll talk about Emergence 101, about understanding who we truly are, how to discover our gifts, and to grow from the tiny humble acorn, to the magnificent oak, we were each meant to be!

Topics Include:

  1. Why “Self-Improvement” is an oxymoron
  2. What “the end of self improvement” really means
  3. Derek’s story for self improvement, which didn’t work.
    1. Why he was:
      1. Suicidal
      2. Addicted to Drugs and Alcohol

  1. Coral Reef Near-death experience – Had to surrender
  2. Discovered the “self” trying to improve was a fiction
  1. Went to monastery to become a monk
  2. Learned we’re not broken –
  3. Instead we must learn how to dust off the perfection which is already there
  4. We are already perfect, whole and complete!
    1. The challenge with the Law of Attraction is that it’s trying to attract, improve or achieve from a limited perspective
    2. Attracting from a limited perspective creates a barrier or resistance to what is already trying to emerge.
    3. It’s like trying to serve two masters or ride two horses at the same time
  5. Law of attraction – manifestation cycle – why it often doesn’t work
    1. The true meaning of whole-work, not homework.
    2. How to tune in to our true self
  6. How to know “you are already whole and complete”
  7. Are you congruent with this truth?
  8. Why Ego and The Tribe get in our way
    1. Ego is designed to keep us the same – is an artifact of our evolutionary growth
      1. So tribe tries to keep us down, and ego tries and prevents change – isn’t letting us evolve
        1. Happens in our “tribe” called our family as well, is a vestigial protective device
        2. Need to separate yourself from that until you can hold your space in that expanded place.
      2. THE EMERGENCE MODEL – Whatever’s “missing” is what you’re not giving
        1. Because the truth is, everything really truly is within you.
      3. How to be the light
      4. Emergence is the “ultimate weight loss program”
      5. How to turn on the divine power within.

The How-To's of Emergence

This is part 2 of our interview with Derek Rydall prominent life coach to Emmy and Academy Award Winner,s Fortune 500 execs, and evolutionary leaders in business, spirituality and the healing arts. He’s the best-selling author of several books, including Emergence: Seven Steps for Radical Life Change.

In part one we learned how we all have greatness within, and like an acorn that grows to be a mighty oak, we can each grow into our greatness.

So in part 2 we’ll look at the how-to’s of growing this mighty oak, and how to discover the incredible power and inconceivably great destiny that lies inside each one of us.

It should be a life-changing ride!

        • Careful not to focus on future, but on the frequency, to let your highest destiny come through!
      • Your destiny is beyond your imagination – Your imagination can only rearrange what we know
      • What’s most important is the imagination of the soul, not of the mind

          • How to create a life by design, rather than by default, out of this emerging vision
          • To bust out, you need momentum so you don’t keep getting pulled back.
          • Remember you are complete
          • “If I am really this deeply supported in life, and if everything I want in life is already here, how would I show up in life?” What might I take a chance on, what would I start, what might I finish?”
