Explore The "Art" of Self-Discovery online journey at https://intentioninspired.com/discovery We begin this week of our self-discovery journey by exploring emotional intelligence. Being able to accurately and honestly identify our emotions helps us come back into the present moment by grounding ourselves in our body, assessing our needs, managing reactions with self-awareness, and engaging in more thoughtful decision-making. This is "Emotional Intelligence". Despite the fact that the words "feelings" and "emotions" get used interchangeably they are actually two different, connected, phenomena. Emotions are the raw data, a reaction to the present reality which generally manifests as a physical/body sensation such as a change in breathing, butterflies in your stomach, sweating, etc. Once the body speaks we make a "value judgment" based on these sensations. A "value judgment" is a rapid interpretation of the experience followed by our response (hide, step forward, yell, run, etc.). These responses can be valuable information for self-discovery once a pattern is observed. Feelings manifest first as a thought (sometimes a thought about the emotion we are experiencing). They are an emotional manifestation of conditioning, perceptions, and beliefs. They may be influenced by emotion but our feelings can be distorted or diluted by stories we've created in our head based on events of the past or fears of the future—not necessarily the truth of the situation. With practice, we can ask "Is this true?" "Have I correctly identified this feeling place or the emotion connected to it?" and look carefully at how the feeling place is serving you, how often you feel it, and what experiences trigger it. Listening to our body, informed by our sense perceptions, helps us connect to the reality of our present experience rather than to stories made up of potentially inaccurate perceptions. By becoming adept at honestly identifying our emotions and employing both curiosity and a lack of judgment we can become "emotionally intelligent". Let's begin...

We talk with one of our favorite men's coaches, Mike Sagun, about physical touch, closeness, and male intimacy. We learn about his journey to self-discovery, how he has changed over the past few years along the way, tools for exploring your own identity, and whether or not people can ever truly start over. Lastly, we touch on the art of giving compliments, the vulnerability it requires to give them—and the power in learning to receive them.

What does it take to be a good ally? What habits need to be unlearned and replaced with better approaches to racism? In this series on healthcare and social disparities, Dr. Jill Wener, a board-certified Internal Medicine specialist, meditation expert, and tapping practitioner, interviews experts and gives her own insights into multiple fields relating to social justice and anti-racism. In this episode, Jill interviews Dr. Sunny Nakae, the Senior Associate Dean for Equity, Inclusion, Diversity, and Partnership, and Associate Professor of Medical Education at the California University of Science and Medicine. They discuss the importance of not fearing stigma or fallout and the recognition of humanity when it comes to being an ally, how interpersonal learning and relationships are necessary to increase the success of DEI programs, and holding people accountable but not shaming them on their equity work journey. Dr. Nakae recalls the quote, “An open hand is better than a closed fist.” Dr. Nakae works with national organizations to increase access and equity in higher education for students and trainees from historically excluded groups that are undocumented, minoritized, underrepresented, and marginalized. She is known for her expertise in mission-driven, intersectional, holistic review processes. Dr. Nakae is dedicated to improving inclusive institutional excellence through co-liberatory equity practice.

Hi!  I'm Jaclyn Steele and this podcast is all about self-worth.  Howard Thurman so beautifully wrote “Don't ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  Coming ALIVE.  That, my friends, is what Self-Worth is all about. But what does it mean to come alive?  It means to awaken to the power of who you really are.  To increase your fear threshold.  To flow in joy.  To have healthy boundaries and relationships.  To pursue your limitless potential even when the going gets tough.  And to live in a way that expresses the message your soul came here to share.In this podcast, we will explore what it means to come alive through the vehicle of self-worth.  And within that vehicle of self-worth, we will talk about self-image, spirituality, style, surroundings and so much more.In the words of my favorite author, Paulo Coehlo:“All you have to do is to pay attention; lessons always arrive when you are ready, and if you can read the signs, you will learn everything you need to know in order to take the next step.”My heart in every podcast episode of Self-Worth is to shine a light on that next step.  One at a time.I'm so glad you're here.  Let's begin.Support the show

Explore The "Art" of Self-Discovery online journey at https://intentioninspired.com/discovery To access subconscious information about the people of our past we called on our Inner Child. There is a clear distinction between our perceptions of "The Past" and the Child Within. It is understood that the past is behind us but our Inner Child (and our Inner Teen) shape who we are as an "Integrated Self". The child that lives within has their own values, perceptions and way of processing experience and a longing to live life fully. We are witness to their presence when we act or react to experiences in the present with the consciousness of who we once were. We can honor the presence of our Inner Child by allowing their voice to be heard. When our Child feels heard, safe, and loved it does not feel the need to "act out" or demand our attention. If we have befriended our Inner Child we clearly see the spontaneity, curiosity, and beauty that our child provides. If we have ignored that child or resisted their presence we may be experiencing "tantrums" that are difficult to understand. In this segment, we expand our understanding of childhood perceptions and beliefs.

Bio for Paul Glover Paul Glover is a C-Suite Performance Coach and The No B.S. Workplace Development Coach who, for the last 30 years, has been assisting leaders and their organizations to achieve their full potential. Episode highlightListen in on how Paul Glover emerged from prison more self-aware and ready to teach others how to see their own blind spots to become effective leaders. LinksWebsite: https://paulglovercoaching.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/paulglovercoaching/Quotes“We are a society of ‘we need more'.”“I believe that we often forget how much we have to be grateful for.” TakeawaysChildhood IncidentsPaul and his little sister were raised poor by their single mother in Florida, who worked night shifts as a waitress, leaving Paul to care for his sister. He would spend summers with his ex-military father who worked as a union electrician in Indiana. He was inspired by his parents to do well and paid his own way through law school. Paul credits the community he interacted with in Indiana as being the most impactful in his life. His father's family were farmers, and he would go to church every Sunday. He enlisted in the United States Army, but struggled with the rigidly-controlled command structure in military life. Paul got a job in a labour organization, where he met a man who had a profound impact on him. “He was a man that did not believe that rules should apply to him,” Paul recalls. Over time, Paul grew to develop the same attitude. Influential Groups Paul learned the tricks of his trade by observing successful trial lawyers. A seasoned lawyer told him that while he was good with facts, he needed to work on his narrative to build an emotional connection with the jury. Temperament and Personality InfluencesPaul can be too direct and offensive for most people, he claims, but he is also an empathetic listener. He has learned to control and manage his temper over the years. Cultural EpiphaniesPaul always felt like an outsider. However, he felt like he belonged with other lawyers, who respected the perspective he had to offer. Advice to an Employer Paul's clients need to be willing to work through the difficult journey to self-discovery and he expects commitment and accountability from them. He invests himself in every coaching relationship and is dedicated to his clients' success.More Great Insights! Reach out to Paul through his website or on LinkedIn, to begin your transformative coaching journey today!Support the show

This week, Tom guides us through an exploration of the effortlessness of it all. Follow along and notice for yourself just how effortlessly your thoughts, feelings, and sensations appear and disappear. Are you really the doer? Or could it be that you just - are aware - with zero effort? Following the meditation, we hear from two participants surrounding the topic of safety and what safety is dependent on, or not. We come to see that while it's hard to know what makes us safe, what we can know for sure is that whenever our safety is dependent on someone being different or seeing things differently, it completely disconnects us from the love that we are. And that always hurts. Thank you to all who share their worlds and question their stories so we can learn and grow together.

I use all kinds of stories and metaphors in therapy  to help people actually remember a point. I'm not sure when I started doing it, but there's something about a story or a picture that cements or anchors an idea in your mind. Just think about in Forrest Gump, the famous “Life is like a box of chocolates” and you'll understand. So today, I want to read you a poem that I use all the time in therapy. The author, Portia Nelson was an American popular singer, songwriter, actress, and author. In 1965, she portrayed the cantankerous Sister Berthe in the film version of The Sound of Music,and on TV's All My Children Nelson played the long-running role of nanny Mrs. Gurney. Her book of poetic musings, There's a Hole in My Sidewalk: The Romance of Self-Discovery, became a mainstay of twelve-step programs. Here's Portia's poem that can act as an anchor for you! “I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost... I am helpless. It isn't my fault. It takes forever to find a way out. I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don't see it. I fall in again. I can't believe I am in the same place. But, it isn't my fault. It still takes me a long time to get out. I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in. It's a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately. I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it. I walk down another street.” ― Portia Nelson, There's a Hole in My Sidewalk: The Romance of Self-Discovery You can hear more about mental health and many other topics by listening to my podcast, SelfWork with Dr. Margaret Rutherford. Subscribe to my website and receive one weekly newsletter including my weekly blog post and podcast!

Because of the way our brain (especially during development) processes our experiences we come up with the most brilliant solutions for surviving the wide spectrum of "traumas" we may encounter. For the ability to come up with these brilliant solutions we can be grateful. At some point, these brilliant solutions were our saving grace. It is possible, that these "brilliant solutions" are no longer serving us. Other species, when faced with high-stress situations, run and shake off the stress hormones that are created. Once the situation is resolved, they are back to eating or whatever they were doing. They process in real-time even if they meet the same experience many times. They do not run their experience through an analytical mind filter, they do not create a story, they do not judge themselves or the experience.

Do you suffering from Witzelsucht (an obsession with groan-worthy puns and jokes)? Preschool teacher Mosa Maxwell-Smith tingles with glee when people roll their eyes at her puns, wondering how she might extend that thrill to the bedroom. Driven by loneliness, she bravely attends a live /Augmented reality sex party and meets Van, a thoughtful, compassionate person who helps her explore new territory: flogging, their shared organizational kink, paronomasia-related memes and Mosa's burgeoning boundaries. #SelfCareIsSoxy #VirtualWorld #Kinkshamed #Brattiness #BestFriendsDay   Song: ‘Fever Dream' (mxmtoon) About the Storyteller:   When Mosa Maxwell-Smith first discovered storytelling she craved it so much that she started hosting story parties with friends in her living room.  That was 2011, before the Moth was even in the Bay Area. She is elated by the explosion of storytelling as an art form and connector of humans over the last decade, and has been privileged to perform regularly at a variety of venues, including Story Slam Oakland, the Mill Valley Library, and (always a favorite) Bawdy. She also tells stories on a daily basis in her role as a preschool teacher (though the content is usually slightly different and the audiences smaller). Mosa is a devotee of connection and serendipity and is grateful to Dixie De La Tour for bringing more of both to her life through the gift of Bawdy. She is always delighted to be out past bedtime on a school night, telling stories to someone other than her cats.     Episode links:   https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/pun: The pun, also known as paronomasia, is a form of wordplay that involves exploiting the ambiguous meanings of words, typically of homophonic (similar sounding), homographic (identically spelled), metonymic (same meaning) or otherwise figurative nature, for humorous or rhetorical effect.   Are you interested in helping me build a Bawdy Book Club?

I encourage you to develop your own self-discovery practice so that you can begin to experience more peace and create more joy in your life on your autism parenting journey. I believe this practice is essential because we mother guides often get lost in the caretaking of our kids that we start to forget ourselves—we lose ourselves in the process. The self-discovery practice can bring you back home to yourself where peace and healing reside in the heart.

Health Mysteries Solved
120 Could Self-Discovery be the Real Secret to Managing Autoimmune Struggles?

Health Mysteries Solved

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 9, 2022 47:34


The Case:  Leila has been dealing with Hashimoto's, Lyme and Crohn's disease for years.   She was managing her symptoms through a strict regimen of supplements, diet, and various practitioners. Emotionally, she was feeling disconnected, discouraged, and joyless. We so often focus on the biochemistry side of autoimmune issues that we forget the importance of taking care of our emotions and connection to life. In other words, there's more to feeling good than just the physical.  The Investigation Getting to the root of health issues, especially chronic and mysterious ones, is quite multi faceted. We really have to address it from all angles. While biochemistry is important, it's just one part and there are many areas that also play a very large role. This was what was missing for Leila and felt it was going to be important for her to really connect with herself and discover her true self.  This is not always easy so to help out, I invited a self-discovery coach to join me on this episode of Health Mysteries Solved.  Sara Katherine is the host of the podcast, Be Your Own Badass and the author of Your Self-Discovery Journal, I'm Awesome: Here's Why, and Be Happy. Be Calm. Be YOU.  Her mission is to help women achieve their goals without letting people-pleasing or perfectionism get in the way.  What is Self-Discovery? Before we can dive into self-discovery, it's important to be able to frame it. For Sara, self-discovery is understanding what you want and what makes you you. She says the ultimate goal of being in tune with who you are, your values, what motivates you and your passions is that the more you're in tune with these, the more action you can take in life. And, that action will feel authentic and right.  For someone like Leila, or anyone who is so focused on their symptoms and their health journey, it's easy to start to feel disconnected with that authentic self. Being able to tap into what makes you you again will help you take care of your symptoms and day-to-day issues but also remind you that you're more than what you're dealing with right now. How to Get Started with Self Discovery For anyone who has never looked into self discovery, it can be a bit daunting. Sara recommends starting small by tuning in to your intuition (which is just like doing a gut check). She says to hold space and check into how you're feeling about something. Pay attention to how your body responds to that thought. Too often our minds are going a mile a minute and we don't stop to check in with ourselves. She explains the concept of listening to our intuition as having an inner mentor (the opposite of the inner critic).  It's the part of you that understands you and wants the best for you. It has the best results for you in mind. Checking in with your inner mentor can take as little as 5 minutes. To do it, start by sitting in silence. Then, do a life audit and scan through what you're going through on a day-to-day basis. Pay attention to what comes up from your inner mentor. This is a great first step in reconnecting with yourself again.  How to Tell Intuition from Fear The challenge that many people have with intuition or listening to their gut is that sometimes, when we have fear, we call it intuition. Sara says that she has also struggled with this because anxieties can creep up and get in the way of intuition. She says it's all about understanding that deep connection to your truth which comes with practice. Practice by paying closer attention to your emotional and physical responses to things. Meditation is also a way to hone your intuition skills. She also suggests paying close attention to which feeling comes first. Usually, the fear comes first but when you sit with it for a moment you can let the intuitive response in.  Misconceptions Around Self-Care Ask someone for an example of self-care and chances are the response will be either get a message or take a bubble bath but are these really examples of self-care? Sara says they may be but only if that's what personally fills you up. Self-care is personal. Each person has a different way of recharging their batteries. For some, it might be connecting with friends while others prefer time alone.  There is no one size fits all for self-care - it is highly personal.  If you don't know what fills you up or recharges your batteries, you need to try new things and pay close attention to how it feels before, during and after. But, don't wait until your cup is empty - find what fills it up before you need it filled. For example, for me, if I don't sleep, I don't feel well. One of my forms of self-care is going to bed early and getting lots of sleep. If I wait until I'm tired to get more sleep, it's already too late. The Difference Between Self-Care and Self-Love The act of self-care is an act of self-love because it cultivates self-love. Sara also says to think of self-care as the action and self-love as the state you achieve. Being able to take care of yourself and understand yourself throughout the process, that helps you be kinder to yourself and appreciate different pieces about you. This all brings self-love into your life. Self-love also has to do with the inner critic versus the inner mentor. When we are in a state of self-love, we listen more to our inner mentor instead of our inner critic.  Being kind to ourselves, and honoring the inner mentor can be a challenge especially for those who are people-pleasers or perfectionists. The inner critic is strong in these personalities, so there is a lot more work that needs to be done to combat the inner critic. For anyone dealing with autoimmune issues or who are on a health journey, it can be very hard to focus on the inner mentor because things don't always go smoothly and the path isn't always linear. So, practicing self-care and cultivating self-love are really important because a negative mindset can affect the healing journey.  How Can a Lack of Self-Love Manifest Physically While this is difficult to prove scientifically, anecdotally there are many stories of people struggling with health until they are able to cultivate self-love. Sara says that she notices it physically. For her, it's the digestive system that responds to times when she is allowing stress to creep in, when she's not getting enough sleep or when she listens too much to her inner critic.   When you let the inner critic win, you end up in a negative state and that can spiral. You stop appreciating the positives, you may not do the things you need to do to feel good (like take time to go for a walk in nature or even just to take some deep breaths). It can compound if you don't combat it with some self-care practices.  Fueling Self-Care and Confidence Confidence and self-care go hand in hand. When your self-care and self-compassion are low, it affects your self-love. If your self-love is low then it's hard to be confident. For anyone dealing with autoimmune disease, this confidence is critical. However, Sara points out that nobody feels totally confident every single day. Confidence comes and goes. Sara says that confidence is more like a muscle than a state of being. Building (and maintaining) confidence requires regular practice, just like self-care. One common way to boost self confidence is through daily affirmations. Another is to remind yourself of what's good in your life by keeping a daily gratitude journal. These practices help you focus on the positive each day and give you support through the challenging days. Even when things are challenging, you can always find something to be grateful for - even if it's just the roof over your head or the apple in your hand.  All of this adds up. When you're taking care of yourself, you're practicing self-care and cultivating self-love and confidence, you'll find yourself in a positive state. Your body is more likely to respond positively to that state.  How to be Grateful When You're in Pain or Your Autoimmune Symptoms are Acting Up One of the first things to let go of when you are struggling to find something to be grateful for is the stress of trying to find the positive. Don't be so hard on yourself. It's okay to just feel what you're feeling; to sift through it rather than push it down. It's important to process the emotions that come with the struggle of autoimmune symptoms.  Processing these emotions allows us to move and find those little things to be grateful for. The more you do these practices, the easier it is to get through the hard days. It's a culmination of your daily habits, your emotions, your gratitude, and listening to your inner mentor. You can do big things but it's really about the culmination of the smaller habits that you integrate into your daily life. Even starting on such a simple level of gratitude of just what even exists right now in your situation. Spark Joy Another great positivity practice is noticing what brings you that spark of joy, passion or purpose. It could be anything from a book, a television show, spending time with a specific person or anything, as long as it makes you feel good. This is something you can start doing right away - just start by noticing feelings of joy. Ask yourself what the source of that joy is and note it. You might keep a notebook handy or use an app on your phone to make a quick recording. Be mindful and appreciative about it. And then you can use this to combat negative feelings and also to look for more opportunities to spark that joy again.  As you do this, you'll start to reconnect with who you are and what you want. This will lead to a deeper understanding of your passions and purpose.   For anyone dealing with a health issue, whether it's due to autoimmune or something else, this practice can help take the focus off your sickness or symptoms and shift it to the positive. Too often we start to identify with our illness instead of remembering who we really are. What is Perfectionism and How does it Impact our Health?  A perfectionist feels a need to achieve all things to the best of their ability, and often that means without any errors, missteps, or mistakes. They feel that if it's not perfect, it's wrong. Anything they do that is not perfect is seen as a failure. They have extremely high expectations of themselves.  Many high achieving people deal with perfectionism and it can be quite destructive to their inner mentor. And, it can make taking action impossible because the fear of not getting it perfect is debilitating.  This can be a challenge for anyone dealing with autoimmune disease or health issues because they have an expectation of their body that if they do everything they are supposed to do then the body should respond. If they don't get the result they are looking for then they take it personally. This further damages their inner mentor and allows the inner critic to take over.  Getting over perfectionism is a process - you can't just decide one day not to be a perfectionist.  Conclusion When it comes to healing, there are so many areas that play a role and mindset is one of them. This is where we started with Leila.  Leila had quite a few limiting beliefs around healing so this was where we began our work together. It took some time for her to realize the difference between what was reality and what was a belief. Deactivating limiting beliefs can take some time because they often come from a trusted source like a past caregiver or authority figure. If we believe these things then our body will also believe these things.  Leila also worked on appreciating her blessings. For so long, Leila had focused on fixing what was wrong that she stopped seeing what was right. Starting a gratitude practice helped shift this focus.  We also worked on her mind-body connection. I designed a set of exercises that she added to her daily routine. These helped her feel instead of just think. She never realized how much she can actually feel in her body and how much she was able to move and shift her own energy until she tried. Doing all of this really raised her mood and energy and sky rocketed her motivation. She was able to feel so much more in charge of her circumstance than she realized. Everything began to flow better.  Next Steps  We also did some new blood work because despite having Hashimoto's, she'd never been evaluated for her thyroid type. If you are unfamiliar with thyroid type, I covered it in this Free Training and I also have a step-by-step, customizable program you can access on my website: https://www.thyroidmysterysolved.com/ We discovered that Leila was ‘Unavailable Thyroid Type' so it was no wonder that her medications weren't working optimally since they weren't being absorbed properly.  We worked on shifting that by further supporting her biochemistry. She was already on a restricted diet and taking many supplements. I wondered if this might be having an effect on her mindset. So, we started looking at what we may be able to take away. I know this sounds weird but sometimes, the body can be overwhelmed with too many things.    Happy Ending After 6 months of working together, Leila's energy was higher, she was sleeping better, her aches and pains had improved, and she had a much better outlook on life. She was able to go out and enjoy life including seeing friends, eating out without worrying about it, and doing the things that she considers to be part of a normal life. She's so happy and grateful now.   Eliminating Health Mysteries For Leila we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle and help her regain her health. Could mindset be the missing clue for you or someone in your life?    Links: Resources mentioned Thanks to my guest Sara Katherine.

Bawdy Storytelling
Episode 227: 'Au Revoir, Small Town‘ (Brendan Taylor)

Bawdy Storytelling

Have you ever received oral sex from a beautiful French woman at 200 miles an hour? Teenage Brendan Taylor had always believed that those Penthouse forum stories were complete fabrications; he's focusing on his studies, not girls. And for a lanky, inexperienced country boy first trip's to France, this young nerd is most excited about the train ride from Paris to Marseille on the TGV bullet train. Electric! High Speed! Yet when a sophisticated Parisian woman takes an interest, he begins to feel a different kind of electricity. Those French lessons don't seem quite so important now, because Brendan's discovered the universal language. #SinkOrSwim #Croissant #Bonjour #Unzipped   Song: ‘Finally Woken' (Jem) About the Storyteller:   Brendan Taylor was born and raised in a small town in the Midwest in the 70s. He enjoys many shades of off-white from eggshell to ecru, and likes just a *touch* of vanilla. He gets migraines like a lawyer bills hours, curses like a barefoot sailor in a Lego factory, and is full of surprises and stories. He chased a woman to San Francisco 26 years ago and it seems to be working out so far.   Episode links:   OUR LIVE SHOW and LIVESTREAM: Our next Bawdy happens right after the Pride Parade on Sunday June 26th. 'Y'all Means All' is our theme and I'm accepting story pitches now! Wanna watch the stories live and in person, or on the livestream? Get tickets now at https://bit.ly/BawdyYallMeansAllSF   Uberlube: Uberlube is a luxurious, high-grade silicone lubricant made from clean, body-friendly ingredients; it's just silicone with a little Vitamin E. Uberlube is Dixie's favorite lube, and they're offering Bawdy Storytelling listeners a special offer – 10% off and free shipping when you use my code “Dixie” at UberLube.com. That's 10% off and free shipping!   Storytelling Workshop: I've added another ‘How to be Fascinating' and there's just a few spots left. Why are Bawdy's Stories different? Because I have a System! The next workshop starts on Wednesday, July 13th (the last few workshops got rave reviews from the attendees, 1 student even landed their dream job - at double their previous salary - and this week's storyteller is a brand new graduate of the course!). I've added weekly office hours, all-you-can-eat custom story coaching & Q&A, and a final storytelling performance for you and your friends. Remember, this class is a prerequisite for my upcoming Sex and Story and Advanced Storytelling workshops coming out later this year - and Early Bird Pricing ends next week! Register at https://bit.ly/HowtobeFascinatingWeds   Private Coaching: Storytelling for Self-Discovery can help you find, create and polish your own stories (this is my one-on-one private coaching option, and my last client said ‘OMG, you just saved me 2 years of therapy, Dixie!' Why? Because together, we do the work and find what that story is really about for you) Do you want learn to tell a compelling, relatable personal true story? I can help you dig deep, gain understanding and communicate with clarity. Writing a memoir, creating a podcast, or want to learn brand storytelling for your business or another story-related endeavor?
