"Who do you Think you Are?" (episode #29) - Andrea Arlington

Who Do You Think You Are...?

Warning - this episode contains explicit language.What an absolute delight it was to spend time with the amazing, intuitive, colourful, inspirational, stylin' Rev. Andrea Arlington! An author, coach, minister, mom, former reality TV star, friend, and more, Andrea's response of "I am more non-physical than physical" was the jumping off point for a thoughtful, honest, and insightful conversation filled with bravery and vulnerability, and laughter.As we talked about how to live from the Quantum (infinite possibilities) while still being rooted in our seemingly physical reality (life), we talked parenting, the power of choice, how everyone wants to feel loved and like they belong, and about seeing the innate perfection of everyone - no matter what their behaviour. Andrea told us how our words are like magic wands and that it's so important to choose and use them wisely - that everything we think and say is what ultimately creates the reality we experience.Andrea also talked very poignantly and candidly about how her experimentation with psychedelics at a very early age were her "initiation" into the realm of energy and spirituality, even though she didn't realize it at the time. She also talked about her close relationship with her younger brother, who died at the age of 17 from an accident involving alcohol and other drugs, and how he continues to be one of her spiritual guides to this day.Andrea also introduced us to a few of her favourite books over the years, and the profound value and gift of gazing into your own pupils. We also talked about how much we both love Kenneth Soares and the mind-shifting power of affirmations!We talked perception, soul tribes, calling on the non-physical for guidance, addiction, recovery, compassion, her love for her daughters, her grandkids, Pink Floyd, reality tv, and ministry. This, and so much more...!Plus, there's the super fun Rapid Fire Question Round at the end!A new episode posted at least twice a month!Background Illustration - sakkmesterke@123rf.comMusic - Vasco Lourenco@123rf.comJoin Lesia's Soul Excavation community at https://www.lesiakohut.com .

Andrea Arlington Shows Up For Reality

Showing Up With Asher Gottesman

Showing up for friends and family with addiction is tough. No one knows this better than former reality star and founder of Families United For Recovery, Andrea Arlington. You might remember her from Pretty Wild on E! (Leslie Mann played her in the movie The Bling Ring) or her daughters Alexis Neiers Haines and Tess Taylor. Today, Andrea is a completely different person than you probably remember her to be. With two daughters in long term recovery from heroin addiction, Andrea shares her own story of leaving home as a teenager to become a model, having a brother who was an addict, and feeling like she didn’t belong. She opens up to Asher about guilt, shame, how Brene Brown changed her life, the dangers of being a people pleaser, numbing out, healthy boundaries, feeling like a bad mom and how her son-in-law’s brutal honesty was exactly what she needed to change. Today, Andrea is a Daring Way Facilitator, ICF, PCC Life Coach, a better mother, grandmother and inspiration to others. Asher talks about how he had some of the same maladaptive behaviors and what lead him to change, as well as why drugs and alcohol are a short-term solution to a longer-term problem. If you connected to this episode, please show up for us—give the podcast a 5-star rating and review on Apple Podcasts.

How positive communication techniques help your loved ones recovery with Andrea Arlington

Mainstream Mental Health

Topic: How positive communication techniques help your loved ones recoveryWebsite: www.FamiliesUnitedforRecovery.comSpeaking Points:Building on well-researched, science based and gentle models of family recovery using positive communication as mini-interventions, I teach parents to use scripts that include language which creates trust, feelings of empathy and compassion and builds connection with our loved one.1. Begin with an affirming/connecting statement. ie: "Honey, I'm so glad to see you this morning." with a warm tone, eye contact and body language. The alternative, not being able to see them due to tragedy, or incarceration, or being homeless makes this statement true, even if you're angry or upset with them. Say it like you mean it and make it count!2. Make an appointment. ie: "I would like to discuss what happened last night, when would be convenient/comfortable for you for you?3. Be Brief - You will lose them if you go on and on. It helps to script your ideas out and practice in front of a mirror or with a partner.4. State facts, -be specific, no opinions, no labels5. Be positive/solution focused- Positive means asking for what you want instead of focusing on what you don't want to. Be supportive and encourage do-able actions instead of being critical and complaining. Being solution focused decreases defensiveness and rebellion and encourages connection and motivation. Instead of, "Stop missing classes", "Make sure you get to class on time."6. Label your feelings - Express your feelings in a way that does not create a negative emotional response in them. There's a huge difference from saying I am so angry at you and you terrified your younger brother, and I'm really frustrated right now and really worried about what I'm seeing.7. Offer an understanding statement - Try reflecting back to your child what they have shared with you about their situation so that they feel heard and understood. This builds empathy which decreases shame and helps create connection.8. Take partial responsibility - Take partial responsibility if possible. This does not mean admitting fault or taking blame but it communicates that we're also working on ourselves and that were in it with them. It takes the focus off of blaming and shows your child that you're interested in moving towards solution as a team.9. Offer to help - Ask them what they think needs to happen next, if they would like help and potentially offer to brainstorm ideas that might be helpful.These steps help keep Truth on the Table, keep healthy conversation and connection happening. This keeps everyone out of denial about what is happening on a daily basis and when handled in a respectful, kind and loving way can help motivate your loved one to choose to reduce substance use or enter treatment.
