TLS #336: How To Shed Family Patterns, Why We Have Addictions, & How To Release Ourselves From Them with The Collective

This week we’re back with the Collective, channeled by Annie Francoeur! Today the Collective is helping us sort through the patterns and habits we get “stuck” in – and how to flow beyond them. We talk about how deep-rooted patterns can take shape within families, and how the mind’s tendency to be judgmental can relate to that.

We also cover addictive and obsessive habits around things like food, drinking, online shopping, or whatever the addiction might be for you. (I know lots of humans are struggling with this during this locked-down phase of life!) If you happened to see my stories this week, you know I’ve been reflecting on my own 9-year experience with eating issues, and what it meant for me to finally release those issues a few years ago. This topic is coming up for me a lot lately, so I hope that delving into this might help you with any similar experiences you’re having.

If you’re in the same boat I was, you’ll definitely want to hear the Collective’s insight. They clarify how to acknowledge the pattern, how you likely picked it up, and to drop your resistance around it. Why do we take on certain roles within our families? Why does the mind create limiting narratives about the type of person we “have” to be? Why does the mind forget that we’re never unloved or alone? It’s all covered in this episode. I can’t wait for you to hear it!

TLS #335: Let’s Catch Up – What I’ve Been Up To, Emotional Beanbags, Where I’m Finding Inspiration, & What Selfies And Design Have In Common

Hello my friends! Consider this episode a little catch-up WhatsApp voice note from me to you 🙂 I’m checking in after a few weeks away from the show to fill you in on what I’ve been up to and why I haven’t been sharing new episodes. We’re talking IVFT facilitator training, inner selfies, and how I’ve been exploring my mind’s resistance to photographing myself.

I’m also sharing some thoughts on releasing emotional beanbags, or what Eckhart Tolle calls the pain-body, including an opportunity to do it yourself in the next few weeks! If you’ve ever wondered why I’ve never done an episode on beanbag releasing, I’m explaining why today.

I also touch on how I’ve been finding design inspiration during this time when most of us can’t explore new places or hang out at cafes. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately freeing myself from some of my mind’s fears, and I’m so excited to share a bit about that with you!

LS#334: Q+A: “Slow” Manifestations, Inner Selfies, Overcoming Skin/Food Sensitivities, & Lady Butts

This week’s episode of TLS is a Q&A. I’m answering several questions about the inner voice and diving into a series of personal stories I’ve never shared on the show before.

We’re talking about “inner selfies” after years of resistance to taking my own picture, singing, and what my mind has to say about lady butts. (Yep, really!) I also offer up some more in-depth stories about my experience moving beyond food sensitivity and skin issues.

I touch on why the mind sometimes wants to dissociate and judge others, especially in times of stress, and I share an experience from my teenage years that forever changed my priorities.

I also share my take on “slow” manifestations that take longer to flow, and the potential positives of that experience. I hope this episode gives you a smile!

​Let’s go to the show. : )​

TLS #333: The Show About Death with The Collective

Friends, in this episode, we are going THERE: we’re talking all about death. Today the Collective, the nonphysical entity channeled by Annie Francoeur, is offering their unique wisdom on what happens when we die, and why humans are so afraid of it. In this conversation, the Collective gives us a peek at some of the truths we should know about death, and how acknowledging that our time on earth is limited can lead us to a much more fulfilling experience.

The Collective also explains how to process the coronavirus pandemic, a time where we are seeing more death at once then we’re used to – and how to use this period of uncertainty to grow. We share some helpful metaphors to make it easier to understand the process of transitioning into death, and explore how to explain it to young people. The Collective also explains who our “committee” is (you’ll love it), what death has to do with roller coasters, and how to honor the lives of late loved ones.

If you’re experiencing extra anxiety right now, I hope this episode gives you a sense of peace.

I’m touching on how you can help ease suffering in your own uniquely aligned way, and explaining the ways that we are all connected to each other. I also dive into some insights I’ve picked up about fear that might help you through this time. I’ve also got a few updates for you about exciting things going on with Team Lively.

TLS #331: How To Tap Into Your Inner Sense Of Peace During The Coronavirus Pandemic

Friends, I am so excited to share this week’s episode with you! Like so many of you, the mind in me has experienced all kinds of ups and downs as we face this pandemic. So today, I’m sharing a way to access the well of calm and wisdom that is within all of us. In this “interactive episode” of sorts, I’ll give you some questions to ask your inner voice about how to handle this global situation.

There is an overload of advice and information out there. So today I want you to take a moment to get some advice directly FROM you, FOR you, about which actions are best for YOU in order to both protect others and care for yourself.

In times like this, it becomes especially clear that we are all connected. Even if you’re not ready to ask your inner voice about the pandemic just yet, this episode is a great way to tune out some of the anxiety around us and get centered. I can’t wait for you to hear this one. Remember, we’re all in this together.

TLS #330: Q&A: Healing From Breakups, Flowing Through Debt, & Knowing When To Take Inspired Action

In this week’s episode, we’ve got another Q&A! I’m answering questions about breakups, emotional bean bags, and how to manifest your preferences.

We’re also covering student debt, illness, and why I sometimes “thank” my physical pain. We dive into why the mind judges others, and how to handle that judgment. If you’ve had conflict in your life lately, this episode is for you: I share how I handle disagreements with others over my choices. Another thing I share in this episode is when (and if!) it’s time to take action on a dream or a plan. I can’t wait to share it with you.

In this week’s chapter of the series I’m calling The Flow Diaries, I’m pulling back the curtain on how I manage my business through flow, and how I apply the principles taught by the Collective to my work.

In this episode, I’m sharing the reason I took a break from the show last year, and what was happening behind the scenes in my personal life while I hit pause.

I’m also letting you in on a new direction in my business that I am SO excited to get started on! I’ll explain all the unfoldings that happened along the way, and how things were aligning in perfect time even when they didn’t feel it in the moment. I can’t wait to share this with you!!!

TLS #328: Astrology, Yoga, Meditation, & Whether We “Need” Ancient Modalities with The Collective

In this week’s episode, we’re back with the Collective, channeled through Annie Francoeur! We’re talking about modern uses of ancient modalities like astrology, yoga, sacred geometry, meditation, and crystals. (And YES, we’re discussing mercury retrograde!) With so many of these teachings booming in popularity, it’s a topic I’m really excited to hear the Collective’s take on.

In this chat, the Collective explains how these modalities first came into humans’ lives, and the different ways they served us hundreds of years ago vs. how they serve us today. We take a look at yoga’s role in our connection to flow and energy, and the Collective answers some of my personal questions about astrology. We explore how things like astrological charts and crystals fit into modern life, and what kind of role we should give them in how we see the world. We also explore “mind knowing” vs. “soul knowing,” and even touch on psychedelics!

Then, we dive into a biggie: mercury retrograde! The Collective explains how much awareness we should be giving to retrograde, whether we can flow beyond it, and how minds sometimes use it to hold themselves back. The episode also offers insight on why meditation is so helpful in today’s world, and how it can help us access connection and consciousness.

TLS #327: The Flow Diaries: Why I Flowed From Cape Town to Bali on 48 Hours Notice

 

I just got to Bali from Cape Town last Saturday and I thought I would do a new style of show. You guys said that you really find it helpful hearing me apply all the stuff we discuss –  things like Abraham Hicks or The Collective or even what Eckart Tolle told me in the past.

What I’m going to call this new format is actually inspired by Michael Singer’s book “The Surrender Experiment.” If you haven’t read the surrender experiment, I recommend you check it out.

I hope that this episode helps inspire people to receive and allow their inner voice to guide them more than their mind.

Let’s go to the show!
