Thanks for being here, Beth. Beth: You’re welcome! Thanks for inviting me. Zephan: So I just want to give our listeners a little bit of background on you. I know you just launched a book but I’d love to hear kind of in a nutshell just where your story begins and maybe one big shift that happened for you that’s led to where you are now. Beth: I love that—“my life in a nutshell.” We’ll try to get that in a nutshell for ya. But—gosh, I don’t know where to start. i think mostly my life began just as so many people listening. I didn’t know—I was just trying to be happy. I think most of us are just trying to be happy. And I didn’t know that everything—and I mean everything—that I was seeking, and didn’t even know I was seeking at the time, but everything that I was seeking was right inside of me. And I was looking outside myself like so many of us. And when I got more present and clear about me—it’s hard for me to say it like that. I always think of—you know, I’m from the east coast, and when I moved to California, all the woo-woo kind of New Age-y stuff, it was always the navel gazing kinds of things. And it is so not that, but it is what I was looking for. But what I knew at the time was I wanted to be happy. And the other thing I didn’t know until it is on was that I always had this underlying stress or anxiety or irritation. Not like angry irritation, but just underlying agitation. Something wasn’t quite right with me or the world, the people around me—it just wasn’t quite right. So that’s really where everything started. Zephan: Yeah, and I think that a lot of people really feel that same way. I think we’re in a world right now where it’s almost like we’ve woken up a little bit and we’re learning more about ourselves and what we’re capable of and what we can actually do with our lives and opposed to—I mentioned in my book about how my generation was raised to think we go to college, we get a job, we do the same thing for forty years, and then we retire and that’s our life. And I think that now as the world is shifting and so many people are discovering that it doesn’t have to be that way, they’re also probably feeling that sort of—I would call it uneasiness in a sense. Something’s off balance. Beth: Exactly. And it’s funny because, just as you were saying, we don’t—it’s like we’re starting to realize it, but it’s so underlying that it becomes the norm. it just kind of builds up in us—and you know how that expression is, white knuckling. You know, you just do it anyway? I and really think that’s my experience. And I really get it’s so many people’s experience that we just kinda white knuckle through the discomfort and even the pain if it’s there, and we just kinda put on a happy face. Like we’re really in knots and not satisfied and not fulfill. And it’s not even conscious for most of us. Zephan: Yeah. I think it’s definitely—it’s under there and not too many people have quite grasped why they feel uncomfortable yet. And you mentioned, you know, “woo-woo” and how this is something where it kind of rides this fine line of—I’ve totally had some people check out my podcast, and they’re like “Oh, I’d never get into that,” or whatever. I think there’s definitely this line right now that’s starting to get blended a little bit. Would you agree? Beth: I do agree. It’s—I was talking to a friend of mine kind of about this—you know, if you talk to it, where the line blends is that people get it when they feel it. It’s like—I was talking to a friend about this underlying agitation, and he is so not a woo-woo guy. Most people know what I mean when I say that—but he’s like real straight, real traditional, and he totally got that sense of underlying discomfort. And I think that is where people—like the line is going to blend, so that when they go “Okay, I am uncomfortable. I feel that, so what do I do about it? What do I do about it?” so once people are at a point where “This is uncomfortable, what do I do about it?” then it doesn’t matter what the line is. Do you know what I mean? Like, you’re just looking for relief. Zephan: Right, absolutely. And I think that we definitely get to a point where things start to click. And I always—I tell people about how when I first got contacts, instead of wearing glasses, the doctor even said “You’re gonna put these in, it’s gonna look a little blurry for a while, but in 15 or 20 minutes when you’re driving home, it’s just gonna click into place and all of a sudden you’re gonna be able to see.” And part of me was like “How about I wait for that to happen before I drive home?” but I think—was there a moment for you where you just kind of sat there and was like “Huh…things are starting to make sense now”? Beth: Well, you know it’s funny. There were so many moments, and I write about all the moments in the book, but there were so many moments that it was kind of a cumulative thing until this one moment where it just all clicked. But I don’t think it could have clicked without all the moments before it, do you know what I’m saying? I hear a lot of people talking about The Moment, but that moment is like the “instant success.” It’s not instant, it’s not a moment, it’s these cumulative moments. And I think, for me—and I honestly, as I’m looking, my husband and I have done workshops on relationship communication for many, many years, so I’ve worked with a lot of people. And what I believe has happened with me that allowed that to totally jump over the edge to willingness to look at things that weren’t familiar or weren’t comfortable for me before was that my mind, this crazy insane mind of mine—I heard somewhere, I just love saying your mind is a dangerous neighborhood. Don’t go there alone. And it’s like our minds are insane, and I really believe without allowing my mind to relax enough to be open to these other things—so how do you get your mind—that’s where really The Moment was, was when my mind was able to relax enough. And when I say relax enough, I mean give it really productive things to do. Because our minds are gonna work, it’s what they do. I don’t believe that ego mind and that kind of mind is something to get rid of, because we need it. We came in with it, we need it. We just need to retrain it, because it’s been trained badly. So it’s on defense all the time. I believe that’s really where this underlying discomfort comes from, is that it’s on defense all the time. It’s exhausting. Zephan: I totally agree. Probably part of it is from our hunter gatherer instincts of—you know, we were always looking out to make sure we’re not about to get eaten by a tiger, but it’s just been programmed in for such a long time that we don’t quite know how to reframe that. And to make it have it so it doesn’t continue to have that. Beth: And again, culturally, from hunter gatherer, you get that. You get that primal defense. We still need that. We need to be careful when we cross the street—you know those kinds of things—but culturally, we have been trained out of our feeling senses, our other intuitive senses that really were meant to, I believe—now that I’ve opened up to a lot of things that weren’t available to me before—that these other parts of ourselves are the parts that were meant to make decisions, the parts that were—I think, honestly, so much of these decision making processing made by this crazy mind of ours stresses us out like crazy. Zephan: It’s—we’re in a world right now where it’s far too easy to get stressed out and not as easy to get relaxed. Beth: That is for sure. Zephan: So let’s jump to this idea for this book—so the book’s out now, but I just want to jump forward a little bit in time to where the idea came to you. It’s called Interviewed By God: A Journey To Freedom, and I’m curious just to hear about its conception and some of the types of things that people can expect to read in there. Beth: Sure. Let’s see—so some amount of years ago—it keeps getting further and further away, I don’t even know how long—I had what I call a spiritual expansion. A lot of people will call it a spiritual awakening, but I—awakening seems like you’re done. “Now, you’re awake!” Zephan: Right. “There you go, now!” Beth: It’s like “You’re done.” And for me, it really is what was and continues to be an expansion. So there was this great expansion, and I keep having them. And I expect for them to never stop, honestly, and Hallelujah. It’s always more freedom, more life every time I go into one of these expansions. So I had this big one, which really opened me to a world that I hadn’t expected, and then I was guided—and like I was saying before, really what shifted most in my life is that I began to trust my own inner guidance and live by that. And it sounds so easy. “Here’s guidance, you go live by it.” But it’s very challenging. And really that is—more than anything, I think that’s the basis of the book, is to be—for me to be an example of how the struggles, the challenges, the joys, the life, the freedom that comes from living in harmony with my innermost guidance. Living and acting on it, and all the struggles that came when I did. It’s not like this myth of—I’ve come to be known as a spiritual myth buster because it’s—because it’s like there’s so many crazy myths. You’ll all of a sudden be awake, and people are going for awakeness—quote, unquote “awakeness”—and all of a sudden their life will be perfect and some angel comes down and dawns you with this white light and nothing every happens that you don’t enjoy anymore. And this isn’t spirituality, that’s crazy. You know? So life really happens and, ah, this is the juiciest part of what I’ve gotten: Life happens by living life. All of it. Not just the things you think are the comfortable things, or the happy things. It’s your life. This is one of the things, if people were just—I think I enjoy my life so much right now because I’m willing to be uncomfortable. I’m willing to be uncomfortable, and we’re running around looking to be comfortable all the time. All the time. That’s what we’re doing. And if we just relaxed into just be willing to be uncomfortable, it really comes and goes like the weather, this comfort. Zephan: You’re saying something interesting here. At first, it might sound almost contradictory to people, but I want to dive into this a little further. You’re saying relax into being uncomfortable. So how do I relax into being uncomfortable? Beth: I love that. So I kind of alluded to it a little bit. A real quick way to play with that idea is imagine that every discomfort—because they’re gonna come along whether you like that or not, whether we try to push them away or not. They’re gonna show up. So if you imagine discomfort like the weather—now there’s all kinds of ways to can play with that, but this is simple. Imagine discomfort like the weather. You do not yell at the weather and tell it to go away. Yes, you go “Oh, it’s a beautiful sunny day!” and when it rains, you go “Aw, crap, I have to go do my errands.” But you’re not sitting there yelling at the weather or trying to push it away or hide from it or whatever. You just grab an umbrella and you go about your business. And really, that’s just like any discomfort if you know—and I guarantee—that they come and they go. They come and they go, but we fight so hard against them that they—honestly, they stay longer than when we don’t. and feelings—and when I say feelings, I mean emotions, which is different from sensing, you physical sensing. But feelings as emotions also come and go like the weather. On of the most interesting things that I’ve realized is that things are way more—scientists are finding that everything has energy. But all the feelings and emotions create blocked energy or stagnant energy within us if we don’t let it move and that’s just allowing discomfort. And you know the expression “push your buttons”? that’s really just stagnant energy that you didn’t let move. Zephan: I think that makes perfect sense. It’s like acupuncture, right? Beth: There you go, exactly! All that does is let energy move. Zephan: I’ve certainly—and this is one of those things that I have to bring up to the listeners. You know, you hear this and some people are like “Oh, yeah, I’ve done that before,” and some people might feel uncomfortable with it and say “There’s no way that works!” But I can personally say from experience, for many years at a time, I had issues with inflammations, tendonitis, a lot of injuries, and things like that. And throughout college, I was going to do acupuncture like two or three days a week and it’s absolutely amazing to see the results. And you’re talking to a guy who has the biggest fear of needles in the world, and they’re not only sticking needles all throughout my hands and my arms, but they actually did a form of acupuncture where they hooked it up to a tens unit, and it uses small pulses of electricity to massages your muscles, and man is it interesting to see how your body releases after you’ve done that. Beth: Oh, that’s so great. And I love that. Now if you can attach that to doing—I think this would be the coolest thing. I’ve never done—I don’t know anybody that does—but if you could attach acupuncture and attach it to emotional release at the same time, oh my god! That would be amazing! Because—you know, I do my own—again, I believe everything that we need, all the questions, all the answers, everything is all within us, and I’m guided on a regular basis to do emotional clearing. Because again, if somebody can say or so something that triggers you, that means you have energy within you that needs to move. Old beliefs, old things that you’ve pushed down. So if you can clear that the same way acupuncture moves the chi, the energy within you, and then you can move your emotional energy at the same time, if only creates more freedom. Just like it does in your body when you do the acupuncture, it allows your body to be freer. Zephan: Yeah, absolutely, it’s one of those things—I hate to dive into the woo-woo realm and have people listening and be like “No!” but it’s one of those things where, much like you were saying to have to relax into the uncomfortable, you really just have to open yourself up to the possibility, and until you’ve tried it, it’s really hard to say what you think. But everyone’s gonna get out of it what they put into it. If you go in with an open mind, I think that you’ll find quite some interesting things start to happen for you. Beth: Yeah, and I love people—my favorite people are skeptical people, honestly. Really! Because I think that’s smart. It’s to prove it to yourself. Prove it to yourself! And that’s how I go into everything. I am not somebody, again—I guess it’s from being from New York. Skepticism comes with me in the womb or something, I don’t know. But I think it’s a wonderful thing to see for yourself and know for yourself. But the other part of that is being open, to see for yourself, know for yourself. So it’s beautiful. Benjamin Zander, he wrote a fabulous book called The Art of Possibility, I believe it’s called. And he wrote in it something that touched me deeply. Because I am a skeptical person. I—almost like a badge of honor, sometimes, because I love proving it to myself. But he said, which I loved: “A skeptical person is only a deeply passionate person that doesn’t want to be disappointed again.” Zephan: Yeah! No, that actually—that reminds me of what Pat Flynn from the Smart Passive Income podcast, at one point on one of his episodes, he said “If you take a pack of dogs and you throw a rock into a middle of the pack, the dog that yelps the loudest was the one that was hit.” And it’s much how—often times the people that have been hit the hardest by your message tend to be the ones to speak up, and a lot of times it comes out as angry or disgust, and I think that they’re the ones that needed to hear your message the most. Beth: And that’s a beautiful point, too, because anytime anyone is upset, angry, frustrated, all there is is something that’s deeply meaningful for them is missing. It’s like one of the things my husband and I always say in our work, is that everybody is only ever saying please or thank you. Please or thank you. Thank you’s very easy to hear. “Thank you for this. Thank you for that.” But please sounds like anger and upset and frustration and really all they’re saying is “Please help me.” So, again, I love skeptical people, I love dealing with upset, because I can just get present and really connect with the person and see what’s going on with them. And the only way I can do that is if I don’t have a bunch of buttons that can be pushed by their upset. Zephan: That makes sense. You need to have yourself in order before you can start to help others. And I think somewhere along this line, part of your book—you even said in your description—is the book is meant to be a mirror for the book to reflect their own experiences back to them. And I’ve found that emotions like anger and things we may consider negative emotions—I would call them more charged or energized emotions. I found that, often times, those come out and we’re given an opportunity to learn so much about ourselves if you just put up a mirror. Imagine if you were mid-argument or about to say something to someone and a mirror just kind of shot down from the sky, it would be interesting to see what would happen for people— Beth: And you start talking to yourself. You know, what’s really funny about that, is because if you really look at how we talk to ourselves, we are so mean to ourselves. So I’m not sure even—we’ve got to start looking in that mirror and being kind to ourselves too. If we can really—and that’s part of—again, like you were saying, it’s a mirror to reflect. My book is really a mirror to reflect the reader’s experience. It’s for them to start remembering, start being kind to themselves, start allowing their experience to be true for them, to be okay, to be acceptable, to start speaking it out into the world and start being comfortable with their discomfort about themselves. This world would change if we would just be as kind to ourselves as we are to people who aren’t in upset about us. That’s when we start getting scared and offensive, but when we see someone who needs help, we are so kind, we are so compassionate, and if we can—that’s when I would love to see that mirror come down too. We need to start being that kind of kind to ourselves. It would be awesome. Zephan: I think we’ll just have to—we’ll have to create a book here where as soon as they open it up—someone what famous, they made a book once, and it was titled Everything You Need To Know About Life and it was just blank pages. Beth: And we just have a mirror. Everything you need to know is right here—that’s so great. I love that. But I didn’t answer your question, I wanted to do it really quick. Zephan: Yeah, yeah! Beth: Just the title came from—the book. It’s kind of interesting, so I was guided to write the book, and it was so hard. And I’m a writer, I’ve written all kinds of books, and I write articles and blog posts, but the book was arduous. I almost gave up a million times, and finally I got so angry, I started going “I don’t know, you wanted me to write this book! I thought it would be easy! Because it’s guidance! It should be easy!” and it was so hard. And I heard “I’ll interview you.” Way back, I had heard this idea that it’s easier to write a book if just somebody interviews you and you can transcribe it. So I heard “I’ll interview you,” and I was like “What? What are you talking about?” and I heard “I’ll ask, and you answer.” And so what happened was every time I got stuck with the book—well, thank god the first question was “If you could put all the experiences you’ve had up til know in one word, what would it be?” and that’s how I started writing the book. With that one question. And then every time I got stuck, I heard another question and I just kept answering them, and that’s how I wrote the book. And that’s why it’s called Interviewed By God because God was the name that I picked for my higher sense of knowing. Zephan: Very nice. And I actually have to say, I really like that everyone’s going to have their own source of where they derive their spirituality, and I think it’s really—you nailed it on the head and gave everyone their own opportunity to consider where their spiritual path comes from and still be able to provide a ton of value to each person. So it doesn’t necessarily have to be for just the super religious person or it doesn’t have to be for the person who isn’t religious at all. Beth: Actually, this book is definitely not for the super religious person. I was scared when got the title. I was like “Seriously? You want me to have ‘God’ in the title?” and what I got from that was that that word has such, like…stuff. I don’t even know the word I’m looking for, but it has such stuff related to it that people need to look at that word for themselves, including me! So that’s why God was in there, and again, just like you’re saying. It is so about you and not about the word or the—whatever you call it is beautiful and perfect. Whatever you call it, as long as you get connected to it. Zephan: Absolutely. I couldn’t agree more. And, Beth, just to round things off here, if you had one sort of key to—some people don’t have this mirror. It doesn’t quite exist yet. If you had any one key or just a word of wisdom for starting to build this mirror, and design it, and putting it in place so that we can relax into that uncomfortable zone and really start to see the truth about who we are as opposed to just putting ourselves out there and having others react to us, what would that be? Beth: You know, it’s so funny. I could tell you so many different things, but what I’m going to tell you is that this path is not for the faint of heart. It’s just not. Because what’s shocking is that trusting your inner guidance is disruptive. It just is. So if you’re still wanting to be comfortable—I think, really, what I’m saying is it takes a commitment to jump in and say “Screw it, I am so sick of feeling unsatisfied and unfulfilled that I’m just gonna jump in,” because you will get—everything will be upset when you jump into this path. Everything you think is true will be tested, and it’s so amazing. And you’re gonna let go of what you think matters, and it will be awesome. But first, it’s going to be uncomfortable. It’s just going to be uncomfortable. And the ironic—what’s really ironic is that like I was saying, you have to be willing to experience everything without judging it, good or bad, and this is really the true spiritual leap, and it’s the next level of evolution. It just is. And the first thing it starts with is being willing. “I’m willing to be uncomfortable.” That’s the first step. “I’m willing”—even saying it. “I’m willing to be uncomfortable. Zephan: So for those who are tuning in, and I’m sure some people are gonna fall to different directions, but for those who are saying “I really think that it’s time for me to take this next step,” what is the best was for them to find your book and to learn more about you and to find out more about all of the things you have going on? Beth: It’s funny, because there really are two camps. It’s like, really kind of practical, pragmatic, and then there are the people who are jumping into that fun woo-woo stuff. And so for the people who are ready tro really jump into the more out-there stuff, you can go to bethbanning.com. And if you—I’m doing this thing right now, because I’m so, so passionate about people getting connected to their inner guidance that if you buy my book now and send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and just let me know you bought the book, I will put you on a list. I’m creating a 3 part video series about how to connect with your inner guidance, and give you exercises and give you practical things that you can practice. And that’s free, that comes with the $17 or $18 book. And then! For the people who are more skeptical, go to focusedattention.com. And this is a real cognitive, very practical, no woo-woo stuff, where you can find out about creating better relationships and communication. Zephan: Very nice. So lots of great opportunities there. And I really encourage the people who—if you did stick with us this long, you’re still feeling a little uncomfortable but you know that it’s time for a change to definitely check that out. Beth, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to be here. I certainly enjoyed this conversation. Beth: You’re so welcome.

032| Beth Banning | Aligning Your Spiritual Relationship with Money
Your Biz Rules (TM) Podcast with Leslie Hassler (business building, time management, small business success, women entrepreneurs)
Join Beth Banning and she discusses her spiritual insight on our relationship with Money. Beth draws her knowledge and wisdom from her conversations with God and the messages he has for entrepreneurs. Beth Banning is a best-selling author, inspirational speaker, and spiritual catalyst who lives in California with her husband, their cat, and their six pound poodle. She was born in New York City and from a very young age could sense the feelings of people around her, felt kundalini energy running through her body, and experienced other unusual events that she didn't understand. The well-meaning adults in her life told her she was depressed and that these experiences were just her imagination. Growing up in this cloud of ignorance and disbelief these gifts were buried and unable to flourish and so she was left confused and lonely. After many years of integrating this consciousness shifting work into her own life and teaching it to others, she experienced a profound re-connection with God that turned her life upside down. This radically changed the way she perceives the world and functions in it. Beth now lives her life guided by her inner source of divine wisdom. She is committed to helping others discover this for themselves and fully experience the essence of who they truly are. For show notes, head to www.yourbizrules.com.
