Episode 84: The Art of Consistency with Gay Hendricks

The Authentic Audience Podcast

Krista sits for a second time with Gay Hendricks. Gay is a psychologist, author, and public speaker whose latest book, The Genius Zone: The Breakthrough Process to End Negative Thinking and Live in True Creativity, will be published in June. As a lifelong meditator, Gay knows that looking inwards, accepting the full spectrum of our emotions, and getting clear on what makes us happy can help us access our natural creativity. He believes that everyone has a spark of genius inside them: we just need to ask ourselves the right questions to bring it to the surface. Gay encourages listeners to dedicate more time to their creativity and suggests taking the time to sit quietly alone for ten minutes and think about what inspires them and what they most love to do. Although he has appeared on numerous TV shows, including Oprah, Gay thinks of himself as a writer who speaks rather than a speaker who writes. He describes how he likes to dedicate the first few hours of the morning to his writing and reveals how the Covid pandemic has motivated him to move more of his courses and seminars online.Links from Episode:The Hendricks Institute WebsiteThe Big Leap by Gay Hendricks See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This week's episode has a special guest: Gay Hendricks. Gay Hendricks has been a leader in the fields of relationship transformation and bodymind transformation for more than 45 years. After earning his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1974, Gay served as Professor of Counseling Psychology at the University of Colorado for 21 years. He has written more than 40 books, including bestsellers such as Five Wishes, The Big Leap, Conscious Loving and Conscious Loving Ever After, (the last two co-authored with his co-author and mate for more than 35 years, Dr. Kathlyn Hendricks). He is also a mystery novelist, with a series of five books featuring the Tibetan-Buddhist private detective, Tenzing Norbu, as well as a new mystery series featuring a Victorian-era London detective, Sir Errol Hyde. His latest book, Conscious Luck, reveals eight ways to change your fortunes through the power of intention. Gay has appeared on more than 500 radio and television shows, including Oprah, CNN, CNBC, 48 HOURS and others.  Hosts: Nick and Kisma Special Guest: Gay Hendricks 1:44 Welcome Dr. Gay Hendricks to Illumination Podcast I'm so excited to have Gay Hendricks as a guest today. We've studied and talked about his work. We covered his work in a four-part series at the beginning of last year, and we are just so incredibly excited to have him join us in this episode. Nick Welcome Dr. Gay Hendricks to Illumination Podcast. We're so happy you're here. KISMA Thank you very much. It's a pleasure and an honor to meet both of you. Dr. Gay Hendricks 2:16 Initial Awakening We've been watching some of your interviews and there was one where you had shared something about your initial awakening, and I was wondering if you would share that event with our listeners because it was so compelling and gave me so much hope. KISMA Absolutely. I wouldn't be here without that event having happened.  When I was 24, I had managed to create a pretty painful life, because I not only weighed 320 pounds, but I wore big thick glasses. I was in a relationship that was really toxic and I couldn't figure out how to get out of it. I was also in a job that wasn't going real well, and I didn't feel like I was using any of my potential.  So one day everything came to a head. I went out for a walk to try to get my head cleared after I'd had an argument with Linda, the woman I referred to. And by golly, I got it cleared big time. What happened was I stepped on a place where the snow had covered the ice and my feet shot out from under me. And I went down on my back and I didn't knock myself out, but I call it an out of Hendrix experience because I had this experience that knocked me out of my senses for about two or three minutes. It knocked me out of my usual way of looking at the world. I laid there and I had this amazing thing happen for about two minutes where I got a look at who I really was. It was like I could see all the way down through the different levels of myself. Dr. Gay Hendricks 5:36 Pure Consciousness In that moment I suddenly became aware of this whole different set of levels of myself. But then the really magical thing that happened was that I realized that down underneath everything was this part of myself that I call pure consciousness. I'd never touched into it before, but it's the part that we all have of ourselves. And it gave me a new place to come home to.  So I had this one moment before I got back up where I said “I'm going to do whatever it takes to feel that pure consciousness all the time”, because it was the first time I felt like I'd really come home in myself. Dr. Gay Hendricks That's an amazing story.  Do you think everyone has this opportunity for that? The sense of feeling and seeing and being aware of that pure consciousness within us? KISMA  I actually do.  The way I put it to my students now is the Universe is totally willing to tickle us with a feather to teach us, but if we're not paying attention, it'll then hit us over the head with a sledgehammer.  Dr. Gay Hendricks 15:19 Essence I wanted to circle back about this idea that I’ve heard you talk about a little bit. It's the essence, like the purest pure consciousness, and I'm curious to hear your perspective on that. Nick What I call essence is that pure part of ourselves that expresses who we really are. If you took that away, you wouldn't be you. I think that it's a gift that everybody has that kind of pure consciousness.  The value of it that I've come to really appreciate is that it does give me a place to come home to that's underneath all the phenomena of my life. It's underneath the thoughts, it's underneath all my feelings. All of those things are very important, but for example, you have sad feelings or angry feelings or scared feelings, but underneath that is that vast ocean of pure consciousness. And I think that in life, our kind of our spiritual job is to find that aspect of ourselves and open up to it and let ourselves be grounded and centered in it.  Dr. Gay Hendricks I love the word essence for it. The essence of that very unique, purest expression of yourself. And I love the way that you talk about it's like that place to come home to because it's not a feeling. It's a state of being that we drop into and it just changes everything. Nick 36:21 The Big Leap and The Genius Zone So in your book , you mention the genius zone and I understand that you have a new book coming out where you're going to expand on this. Can you tell us a little bit more about this book?  Nick  Basically it takes what's in and gives you a way of diving right down into your genius zone. So it's kind of like instead of flying the plane to your genius zone, it gives you a very nice parachute, a way to just go straight down and capture it. There are some processes in the book that give you a real quick way of getting into that space and how to stay there once you're there.  Dr. Gay Hendricks Would you consider The Big Leap a prerequisite for it, or can people just dive right into The Genius Zone? Nick It would be great if they read The Big Leap first because it's kind of a sequel.  Dr. Gay Hendricks 47:55 Five Wishes Well we don't have guests a lot and when we do they're so special such as yourself. A question that I always like to ask is is there anything that's in your heart that you want to do before you leave the planet that you've not told anybody? KIMSA I can't really think of anything. I figured out early on what I wanted.  In my book , I talk about the five things that I wanted to create in my life and I've created them more beyond my wildest dreams. So I have to say if the Universe needs me in the collective anytime soon I'm ready and willing to go. I'm having a great time while I'm here, but I've accomplished all my major goals and I'm just enjoying living more and more of them every day. Dr. Gay Hendricks I love that. That's the best.  Nick Well thank you so much for being here Dr. Gay Hendricks. KISMA

He has offered seminars worldwide and appeared on more than 500 radio and television shows, including OPRAH, CNN, CNBC, 48 HOURS and others.Tune In: 01:29 - What Inspired Gay To Write His Book Conscious LuckThrough experience, phsycology, meeting Ram Dass and big questions, Gay has come to many conclusions about the human species. He talks about the genius zone, an open space of spirit and how almost everything in Gay’s life has been about finding different ways to reveal that open space. In Conscious Luck he is able to put everything together as to how to make yourself lucky.“If you are the luckiest person that you have ever met, what you want to do is make everyone else feel the same way too”17:14 - Luck as a Way of Living That HealsGay talks about our spirit radar. Something inside which looks for new opportunities and can heal. He thinks our spirit radar is just like the one some animals have in nature. He refers to what pulls sea turtles to travel every year one thousand five hundred miles to lay eggs, and hummingbirds to travel every year with no food over the Gulf of Mexico. “We come with a spirit radar inside which seeks out opportunities for us to grow psychologically, spiritually and emotionally”27:51 - Dropping Into a Space Holding Shame To Have a Place With More LuckGay talks about something that works miracles. Grounded in his own painful experience discovering shame and that it had been occupying space in his body for a long time, Gay discovers that this space can be occupied by something other than shame, it can be occupied by whatever you want to replant the field with.  “I now rededicate my shame field to an attractor field for luck and love”42:04 - Setting Luck Worthy Goals It all comes to the important things you really want and to make sure your life is about those goals. Gay shares his driving heart scented goals, which are yours?“If I were the luckiest man on earth, what would I want?”51:25 - The Importance About the Pace Around the Company You Keep Gay talks about the importance and the conscious choice of being with people that match your growth in evolution.“Everybody needs people in their live’s whose faces light up when you walk into the room ”54:14 - Luck as a synonymous to gratitude Gay refers to Carol Kline when talking about luck and gratitude being the same thing and part of the same space. He talks about what he does everyday to feel that space of pure consciousness within himself and how it expands with gratitude.“If you are grateful for what you have, that puts you in a very receptive place for better things to happen”Gay’s books:“Conscious Luck - Eight Secrets To Intentionally Change Your Fortune”: https://amz.run/3Yj0"The Big Leap": https://amz.run/3Yj2“Five Wishes”: https://amz.run/3Yj4Mentioned resources:Ram Dass: Gay went up to this spiritual leader and asked him “What do you recomend I do if I wanted to really open up to the maximum amount of spirit I can feel in myself?” And Ram Dass said: “Don’t worry, something will come to you”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ram_Dass“Yoga,Youth and Reincarnation” book by Jess Stearn: Paperback book about breathing, yoga and meditation exercises; this is what Ram Dass said would come to him. https://amz.run/3Yqk“Because I love” poem by Kathleen Raine: “There is an invisible way across the sky, Birds travel by that way”.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Gay and his wisdom is unmatched. Most voices of authority in this realm stick with the academic theory but Gay has a beautiful way of blending and weaving through his life experiences into his teachings as well. In this episode from the Why Not Now? archives, Gay talks about how an argument with a partner led to his Why Not Now? moment which allowed him to identify a pattern and it changed his life. He shares the four steps that allow you to solve any problem, as well as the danger of unexpressed creative potential.
