342 – Holiday Replay: How to Work with and Tame the Inner Critic with Jenny Jansen

All of us have an inner critic – the part that reminds us of our limits and our failures and tries to “keep us in line.” It’s that voice inside your head that can be critical, judgmental and even mean. Though it’s just one part of who we are, the inner critic is one of those parts that can be especially painful and stressful to deal with.   Not only does the inner critic impact our sense of self-worth, but it also keeps us stuck and small in life (although it thinks it’s...

341 – How To Stop People Pleasing and Codependency at the Holidays

It’s that time of year again…the holidays are officially upon us!   This is a happy time, but it can also be really triggering…especially for those of us who struggle with people pleasing and codependency.    This time of year puts us around more people than usual, and more demands are placed on us during this time…a combo that is like kryptonite for those who are addicted to other people. No wonder the holidays are so exhausting!    On today’s show, I’m helping you figure out how to stay in balance this holiday season, with practical...

340 – How To Work With Triggers

We all know the feeling: someone says or does something, and we feel our heart rate go up, the heat rise in our body, and the anxiety or anger take over. We just got triggered!   A trigger is an emotional reaction that we have to someone else’s words or actions. They often catch us off guard and can flood us with “negative” emotions, and if we’re not being conscious, our first reaction is usually to blame the person who triggered us.   But triggers aren’t about others; they’re always about us! And after...

339 – Navigating Narcissism and High-Conflict Co-Parenting with Sarah Kamoto

Realizing your partner is a narcissist or emotionally abusive and making the decision to leave can be one of the most liberating experiences of your life. But what if you’re forever tied to this person because of a child you share together? What if you can take yourself out of the relationship but can't take the narcissist out of your life?   Co-parenting with a highly toxic or abusive person adds a whole new dynamic to parenting and divorce. Your child needs more support than ever — and so do you as...

338 – How to Overcome Fear in Decision-Making

You get an idea, you have something you want to do or you become aware of a change you want to make. The first thing you feel is excitement…and then suddenly, the fear hits.   Your mind starts racing with all the bad things that could happen if you move forward with your idea. Some of these concerns might sound legitimate, which just adds to the confusion.   How can you tell if you’re making a decision out of fear or out of wisdom? How can you connect to your soul to know if...

337 – How to Live an Awakened Life with Andrew DeGregorio

If you’ve spent any time in the therapy or self-help space, you’ve probably heard amazing stories from leaders and teachers who have had some sort of spiritual awakening.    To the average person, these types of experiences might seem far off – something reserved for the gurus or super spiritual among us.   But in my work, I want to know if all humans can awaken to their true self and how we do that.     Andrew DeGregorio was not a guru when he had his awakening. An average 30-something guy who wasn’t necessarily on a...

336 – Understanding and Ending Abusive Relationships with Darlene Lancer

When is a relationship worth fighting for and when is the only answer to walk away? Is it possible to work through dysfunctional patterns with a partner and get the outcomes you want?   You know that I always say if there is physical abuse, GET OUT!   But dysfunction exists on a spectrum, and just because someone has a personality disorder or dysfunctional traits doesn’t mean they will always become abusive. In fact, many people in difficult relationships don’t want to leave…they want to figure out how to make it work.   Darlene Lancer, a...

335 – The Magic of Surrender with Kute Blackson

Kute Blackson is no stranger to miracles. Growing up the son of a spiritual leader in Ghana, Africa, Kute witnessed healings and transformation that were nothing short of awe-inspiring.   But when he realized it wasn’t his calling to take over his father’s ministry in the way his family expected, it led him on a challenging and transformational journey of his own: one in which he discovered the magic of surrender and how it can heal our lives.   In this episode, Kute delivers so much wisdom about what surrender really is (it’s not...

334 – The Brain, Meditation, Sleep and Muse with Ariel Garten

You guys know I’m a huge believer in meditation for its emotional and spiritual benefits. It’s one of the greatest tools I’ve found for personal growth and living a more peaceful life.   But it turns out that meditation also has a major impact on the brain, from our fear response to how well we sleep at night. In this show, we take a deeper look at meditation through the lens of neuroscience alongside neuroscientist and brain expert Ariel Garten.   In this fascinating show with a fascinating guest, Ariel talks about what meditation...
