TLS #325: The Difference Between Attachment vs Love and Attention vs Presence

On today’s show, I’m sharing some truths that nearly all inner voices have in common, and how we can apply them to our lives as humans! After speaking with countless inner voices from all over the world, I’ve noticed that they all return to certain lessons and themes. As personalized as each human’s situation may be, the wisdom of the enlightened consciousness within us is pretty universal.

In this episode, we’ll draw from that wisdom to break down the difference between living from the mind and living from your inner voice. We’ll also discuss the difference between love and attachment. Then, I’ll share how to apply this wisdom to the topics that people ask about most: health, career, and relationships. We’ll break down what an aligned, healthy relationship looks like, and how to know whether your feelings for someone are based on love or fear. I’ll share the inner voice’s take on heartbreak, where negative emotions sit in our bodies, and how to know when it’s time to move to the next level with a partner.

I’ll also share what inner voices have told me about where work and passion intersect, and why your inner voice is never worried about money. We’ll take a look at the power of loving yourself enough to leave situations you are no longer expanded by, and how we can break free from negative emotional cycles. We’ll also break down the inner voice’s take on disordered eating, how we’re “supposed” to eat, and intuition-based ways to approach food. I can’t wait for you to hear it!

Let’s go to the show. : )

the lively show: purpose, intention, & uncertainty with jess lively


After seven months and 30 episodes… it’s my turn to be in the hot seat on The Lively Show!

To host this episode, I invited writer, speaker, and coach, Rachel MacDonald, of In Spaces Between and Bright Eyed & Blog Hearted, on the show.

Rachel is a previous Lively Show guest herself, so you may remember her (and her lovely Australian accent).

I asked Rachel to interview me since she is a peer in the work that I do, and I knew that she would be able to give an informed and honest opinion of my work.

In the show, we cover my life, the lessons I’ve learned along the way that apply to us all, and how this journey over the past eight years has led to the work I do with Life With Intention Online.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about my journey, or wants to live with more intention and purpose while facing life’s inevitable uncertainty.

introducing (temporary) intention tattoos


A few months ago, I spent a week installing and completing the hotel lobby design project I’ve been working on for the past twenty months (psst: the big reveal is coming up on the blog next week!).

It was a 2,000+ square foot space that had a long ways to go before the grand opening party at the end of the week.

Construction crews, painters, electricians, and woodworkers were scurrying about asking me for opinions and directions. Meanwhile, I had all the styling and decorating to do, and most importantly my big plan was facing the test:

Would it look as good in real life as it did in my vision?

And: Would all of the interested parties – the owners, manager, sales team, and general public like what I spent almost two years creating?

No pressure or anything.

Needless to say, by the middle of that week I was running on empty in every way.

As I went on an early morning run before yet another (insane) workday, I started cry by the lake.

There were so many things out of my control, yet the responsibility for the success of the lobby design rested on my shoulders.

It all seemed like too much… until, I had a breakthrough: (more…)
