TLS #185: The intersection of rational mind and intuitive guidance with Erin Loechner


Today’s Lively Show we are having Erin Loechner, the author of Chasing Slow, and blogger behind, back on the show — at her request!

Erin has asked me to unpack and explain the “Lively lingo” that you hear on the show in the solo episodes and peppered throughout interviews as well.

In this episode we cover a HUGE range of subjects and concepts that have yet to be discussed on the show… all stemming from three simple terms you’ve heard a lot about before.

This episode is a thought provoking conversation around some leading edge ideas about consciousness, faith, rational mind, parenting, intuition, ego, and genius.





  • Erin goes over the terms frequency used on The Lively Show including Life With Intention terms and Flow With Intention terms.
  • She talks with Jess about the Ego and how it’s definition and explanation come from the teachings of Eckhart Tolle.
  • Erin asks about the difference between optimism and faith, and how the role the Intuition plays.

  • Jess answers the questions about the Ego vs Intuition and how your answers will come from your Intuition.

  • They discuss the difference of the Intuition and the rational minds with examples from studies including the teachings of Albert Einstein.
  • Jess describes the word Genius and how it compares to Intuition as the internal source to tap into to find the answers.
  • They discuss alignment before action by using your intuition’s guidance to place you on the correct path.
  • Erin ask Jess about writing to your intuition as how it’s about receiving rather than waiting for an answer.
  • Erin mentions how parenting can be difficult for some people since not having control can place a burden on the Ego’s sense of well-being.
  • They talk about Growth and Expansion and how resistance can come up during the journey.

    First off, love, love the new look to the website! Secondly, I just had to take some time to stop in and say this is my favorite episode ever! What an awesome way to tie everything together. If only this philosophy was taught in our schools and to children at a young age, what a different world this would be. If you ever consider having “change agents” that share and teach this, I would be thrilled to be a part of it.

    Additionally, while I’m here, if you are looking for more people to interview that share the same value of “flowing” and are parents, check out Cathy Adams who does Zen Parenting Radio, I think it would be incredibly beautiful to listen to you both have a conversation about how to teach flow to young children.

    Also, if you are looking for a movie to watch, check out may seem a little strange at first, but I promise you will love it!

    Love and Light and many thanks for all you do!!!

    Hi Jess, thank you so much for this podcast. Could you please let me know how to register for your next LWIO class or the new flow thing that you are planning, I have registered my E-Mail address already in September when it was not possible to register for anything but have not received an update so far. I was just wondering if I missed something as you said new classes will start this month.

      Hi Caci! If you’re already on the list for the next LWIO class, you’ll be receiving details very soon on how to sign-up. We haven’t sent anything out yet, but we will be very soon : )
