TLS #176: Uncovering the deeper meaning behind intention resistance with Jennaea Gearhart


Today’s show is based on another LWIO Module 4 interview with LWIO member and interior designer, Jennaea Gearhart of

In the episode, Jennaea begins by sharing a Values-based intention for her wardrobe… and through our discussion we uncover a much deeper and more meaningful issue beneath the resistance to this intention.

I believe that Jennaea’s story is a powerful example of how to look beyond the resistance we may have to a certain area of our life in order to uncover a more impactful issue.

This episode is perfect for anyone who has resistance to living an intention in their lives and is unsure about how to move forward.

  • She describes how she wanted to life her life with purpose.

  • Jennaea talks about her possessions intention and resistance that surrounded that intention.

  • She tells us about her issues with her wardrobe and why many of her clothes are not being worn.

  • Jennaea describes her timeline and action steps to get to her Value-based intention with her wardrobe.

  • She discusses aspects of her life and realizes her true Values are about her horses and riding.

  • Jennaea uncovers another big resistance in her life, which is the interaction with her mother and how that has influenced her life.

    Hi Jess, really love your podcast. I am listening to the newest and totally understand Jennaea’s dilemna, especially the change in clothing requirements after mom-hood, weight gain, and different requirements for looking casually professional. I want to pass along a local reference for her. About 5 years ago I worked with Jill Swanson, she’s in Minneapolis area (I’m on the west coast! I flew out to work with her.) Perhaps Jeannea might want to connect with Jill? I had a great experience rethinking my wardrobe and getting rid of things that no longer serve my current life. You can find out more about Jill here …
