Today's Ask Elizabeth question is something most of us have dealt with at some point or another in our lives whether it's in a romantic relationship or any other kind of relationship with a friend, family member, or even co-worker.

In this episode, I answer the following question:

On letting go - I need some more help in this territory, and saying goodbye to my previous relationship, help putting it in its place. I need some mental cues to get me out of downward spirals about it, the memories and feelings are haunting and simply unproductive.

Rank #3: EP37: Tosha Silver on Outrageous Openness

Podcast cover
Read more

In Feb 2015, I did a 5-day symposium consisting of 25 interviews with powerful and inspiring women sharing their stories and advice for transcending life’s struggles, fears and doing it their own way. We got so much incredible feedback on the interviews, we decided to turn it into a podcast. At times during the interviews when you hear us refer to the series or interviews that have already been done, keep in mind these interviews have been repurposed and may not follow the original order – but stay tuned because we’ll be airing four each month on Mondays alternating with fresh new episodes called “Ask Liz” every Wednesday.

Fun story about today's podcast. When I was doing this first series of interviews, I had Tosha scheduled on a weekday morning at 9am. We were trying to connect on Skype but something was up with her computer and she couldn't get the camera to work.

Knowing she lives in the Bay Area and that I was heading up there that coming weekend, I threw it out there to see if she was available to do the interview in person - and that's what we ended up doing! Was so cool to meet her and get to spend some time together in addition to doing the interview.

Her book Outrageous Openness is one of those that I flip back through every now and again when I want to reconnect with myself and remember how easy it is to access the divinity within me.

About Tosha Silver:

I grew up in Pennsylvania thinking one day I would be a rabbi, a lawyer, or a weathergirl. But fate seemed to have other ideas. I graduated from Yale with a degree in English literature but along the way developed an unexpected passion for metaphysics and yogic philosophy. One way or another, whether teaching, writing, or doing private sessions, I’ve spent the last thirty years helping people access the Divine Beloved within. That’s my biggest passion. I adore helping people access the Divine in deep, alive and authentic ways, without the usual dogma or jargon so common in this realm. I especially love the Universe’s unexpected and wild sense of humor.Outrageous Openness: Letting the Divine Take the Lead, my first self-published book, gained a passionate audience around the world amongst people looking for fresh and vivid ways to open to the Divine. I’m thrilled that it was recently purchased by Atria Books who are bringing it to a wider audience. Most days I also write on my author page on Facebook so come follow me there for content-rich material. I truly enjoy helping folks from all over know the love affair that is always going on inside and outside with the Beloved. The connection and guidance from the Inner Divine begins to take the lead when it is sincerely invited….by anyone. The Universe is a Divine party.

In this episode, Tosha shares:

1. How to create a personal relationship with the Divine. 2. Debunking popular “manifestation” theories. 3. Relating to religion and spirituality

Rank #6: EP293: Deeper Dating with Ken Page

Podcast cover
Read more

This is my new favorite interview of all time, period. I had a feeling it might be as today's guest is the author of a book that completely changed my life last year. The book is Deeper Dating and the author is Ken Page.

I waited to have him on the show for a few months so I could implement what I learned from the book when I read it the summer of 2018. I also recommended it to several friends and clients and have been geeking out on it for months.

Anyway - I could gush on but truly, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and listen several times.

Ken's big truth was around hidden arrogance when in conflict.

From there we talked about intimacy as a journey of rupture and repair, learning about the humble act of messing up, how he came to discover the content in the Deeper Dating book in his work with clients as a therapist and his perspective on codependency.

Then we talked about my favorite concept in the book: Attractions of Inspiration and Attractions of Deprivation aka why we get turned on by things that aren't good for us and how to shift away from that to being turned on to what is. It's game-changing, y'all!

 We talked about emotional availability and finally - FINALLY!! He gave me alternative language to use instead of "masculine and feminine" - "instrumentality and expressiveness."

 We also bumped into one of my own biggest wounds that comes up in romantic relationships and I had a little cry in the middle of the interview.

 Like I said, this is my favorite interview of all time period.

Enjoy, share, tell your friends, review it, get the Deeper Dating book, and I hope you find me on Instagram and tell me everything after you listen!

Enjoy, share and let me know what lands and resonates with you about this one!

Rank #7: EP 326: Journeying Towards Wholeness - A Breakdown

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we’re kicking off a six-week podcast series I do every year called Journey into the Wild Soul. It will be FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)

I’ve also be opened up a free pop-up Facebook group to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2020 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

Details can be found here - http://wildsoulmovement.com/journey2020

The Journey into the Wild Soul is about reflecting on the year and perhaps years previous, so that we can leave the past in the past as we transition into a new year. As well as to invite you to consider if how you’ve been going about your growth, healing and transformation is really effective or if it’s more performative, obligatory, inefficient, ineffective, or just a distraction.

Our theme this year is WHOLENESS and in this first episode, I'm sharing some of my own experiences towards wholeness, discussing the difference between identification and integration, and sharing some metaphors for healing, growth and transformation to help you honestly evaluate where you are right now in your own journey - and give you some perspective for moving forward AND measuring your progress.

As always on Truth Telling, we’re gonna keep it real and pack it in with tons of love, truth, kindness, laughs, stories and useful insights. Enjoy!

Rank #8: EP312: Girlfriend Chat: Dating, Love, Sex and Relationships with Linda Abbott

Podcast cover
Read more

My friend Linda Abbott is my very favorite person to jam on dating, love, sex and relationships with. We debrief after many dates and conversations and experiences with men. We hold each other up in tender moments when things don't work out, when our hearts get broken open (again and again), and when things do work out and it's time to expand.

We also keep each other accountable to the healing we've both done around breaking old patterns and habits around codependency, tolerating poor treatment, and being able to see red flags and hold loving, compassionate and firm boundaries with both ourselves and others.

This chat is something we've been cooking up for months. We scanned over our texts and jotted down some of the most important things we've been through in the last year in all realms of the heart, intimacy, devotion, pleasure and more, and we committed to hitting a record and just talking until we were done.

That ended up being two hours and forty minutes, so grab some tea, break it up into sessions if you need to, maybe invite some friends to listen with you and instead of a Netflix binge session, have a deep listening session with us.

Since we're both heterosexual women, our experiences are limited. We do however hope the conversations around boundaries, honoring ourselves, breaking patterns and habits, vulnerability, having tough conversations and getting clear about what we want in love can be applied across a wider range of relationship and sexual orientations.

We're sure you'll let us know if they do or don't and we appreciate that.

One of the things we were most excited to emphasize was how all of these experiences have taught us a lot about men and ignited deep compassion within us for their experiences, too.

Not to excuse poor behavior or anything, but to see them as people too, not just perpetrators or adversaries which they are often painted as (and sometimes rightfully so!).

That said, share this with the men in your life. It's a great conversation opener and probably a gateway into better understanding our side of things too.

Finally, we laugh A TON throughout this conversation...so be ready.

We're so so excited to share this with you and can't wait to hear from you after you listen.

To all of us walking each other home and through the epic, deep, winding, beautiful and excruciating journeys of the heart - may we be met, seen, held, accepted, supported and loved - and may we meet, see, hold, accept, support and love...better.

xo,

E + L

Rank #9: EP67: Margaret Nichols on Grounded Spirituality and Urban Oneness

Podcast cover

Last month my friend Margaret Nichols interviewed me for her website and I enjoyed the conversation so much, I had to have her on the podcast ASAP. In today's episode we talk about navigating big life transitions, acting out as an adult, spiritual kryptonite and the areas of yoga that most people miss out on.

About Margaret Nichols:

A writer and consciousness cheerleader in Manhattan, Margaret Nichols is a recognized leader + trainer in the Oneness Movement. Having been involved since 2006, she trained with monks in India and Fiji and now teaches in New York and as well as mentoring other trainers nationally. The goal of “Oneness” is to “help set humanity free.” They let Margaret do this with high heels and great hair, so she is very pleased about that.

Although teachers, influences and studies are too numerative to list here, in addition to her vast Oneness fam, and the ongoing Ultimate grace of Sri AmmaBhagavan, in 2006 she lived in India while studying with the late contemporary yogi master Sri K Pattabhi Jois, and had a continued Ashtanga practice with master teacher Eddie Stern and his awesome crew of teachers in New York.

They and many others get mad gratitude for any grounding she might have. Om!

On the artistic front, Margaret has been a professional, award-winning actress in New York City and internationally for a decade and a half. Since 2001 she’s been a member of the prestigious off-Broadway company: TACT (The Actor’s Company Theatre). www.tactnyc.org

…and any bio would be remiss to not include her alma mater, the more than terrific:

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

In this episode, Margaret shares:

1. Navigating big life transitions 2. Acting out as an adult 3. Spiritual kryptonite and the areas of yoga that most people miss out on

Rank #12: EP250: Sex, Consent And Relationship Dynamics with Marcia Baczynski

Podcast cover
Read more

I'm pretty sure this was my favorite conversation on the show in the last three years. Not just because it primarily focuses on sex, but because our guest Marcia Baczynski is really brilliant at what she does, and we addressed things that most people simply don't talk about or receive education on.

Marcia's big truth was that she can change her mind. From there we explored:

-What Cuddle Parties are (she's the co-founder), -Navigating boundaries, consent, preferences and assumptions in sex. -Gender, heterosexual and non-heterosexual dynamics in love and sex. -Power dynamics! Which is something I've been really wanting to explore on the show - and why people may or may not feel obligated to say yes to things they are really not ok with sexually. -And she also introduced some great concepts like desire smuggling and the difference between consent and permission.

This is one to listen to more than once, share with friends, and use as a conversation piece with loved ones. Enjoy!

About Marcia Baczynski:

Marcia is an internationally-recognized speaker, writer, coach and expert on sexual communication, relationships and women’s empowerment. Her primary mission is to help women and the people who love them to overcome shame and get in touch with what they truly want — romantically, sexually and relationally — even if it’s off the beaten path.

As co-founder of Cuddle Party, Marcia has helped tens of thousands of people to speak up for the kind of touch they want, say No unapologetically, and foster more connected, affectionate relationships. Her popular virtual course, “The Good Girl Recovery Program,” helps women to break out of the roles that keep them small and unsatisfied, and move into being more of who they are in all areas of their lives. In the Make Hot Play Happen weekend intensive, she co-teaches with renowned educator Midori, and helps people more fun, lower stakes, hotter sex, more creativity and better connection in bed.

Marcia brings wisdom, humor, and creativity to all aspects of her work, and offers a fresh perspective on love, sex and relationships. Each year, she works with a select group of private clients. Since 2003, she has helped tens of thousands of people through her private coaching, workshops and group programs.

Marcia is a sought-after presenter and coach, and she has made over 100 magazines, newspapers, TV shows, books and radio appearances, including The Rolling Stone, The Montel Williams Show, Fox News, NPR, the Washington Post, the New York Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, GQ, Marie Claire, People, Newsweek, The Daily Mail, and Penn & Teller’s Bullsh*t, to name just a few. She has been interviewed for, and cited in, a number of books as well.

When she’s not scheming ways to make the world a better place through improving intimate relationships, Marcia enjoys finding creative ways to use her frequent-flier miles, reading historical marker signs, dressing up, planning adventures, going sailing, hanging out at the beach, spending time with her family and being the best auntie she can to the kids in her life. She lives in the Bay Area.

I’ve been excited to share this interview with you since I first recorded it two months ago. This conversation with Eva Clay really helped to change the trajectory of my dating life. Her insights, advice and techniques changed my perspective immensely on what’s possible in dating and romantic connection with men, outside of monogamy.

This interview isn’t necessarily about non-monogamy, but with everything Eva shares from ways to not get attached or obsessed too soon, how to stay in your own experience and your own body when you’re first connecting with someone new, the impact of social media on self-image and self-esteem and more, you may also be rethinking how you approach dating and relationships by the time it’s over.

I appreciate Eva’s extensive training, deep experience and wise way of integrating science, embodiment and spirituality. Enjoy and share this one far and wide, y’all!

About Eva Clay:

An acclaimed sexologist, psychotherapist and academic, for over two decades Eva Clay’s been following her mission to illuminate the ménage-a-trois of soul, sex, and science.

Y'all, I love today's guest. Talking to Julie Parker feels like being hugged by a fun and wise aunt. You feel safe, seen, heard, and you know that she's got experience and so much care to back up everything she's sharing. We started the conversation around femininity, sensuality, and flow, then ventured into life transitions. Julie runs a coaching certification school and has been in the industry for 17 years. She had a lot to say about the evolution of life coaching, we discussed some of our pet peeves in the current industry, and I got her opinion on when people are ready to either become a life coach, or hire a life coach. As a former therapist, it was also illuminating to hear Julie's perspective on when it's appropriate to hire a coach or hire a therapist.

Rank #18: EP83: Let Soul Lead with Lisa Berkovitz

Podcast cover
Read more

A few months ago a couple of friends tagged me in a post on Facebook with Lisa Berkovitz saying that we would love each other. We didn't end up connecting virtually but we did meet in person at an event in January. The moment we dropped in we felt like twin souls. So much in common! After this interview Lisa and I were chatting about where she'd be traveling to next (she lives nomadically) and she mentioned coming to SoCal. I don't usually invite people I barely know to stay in my home but I felt called to invite Lisa, so I did. As this episode goes up today, she just headed out two days ago after enjoying a week here where we shared many meals, deep conversations, laughs, insights, time by the ocean and a lot of love.

I hope you enjoy our illuminating conversation about life paths, personal development, spirituality, pivoting when necessary and more!

Rank #19: EP79: Kari Samuels on Leading the Intuition Revolution

Podcast cover
Read more

First of all - I love Kari Samuels. It’s been about four years now that I’ve been a fan of her work, using her numerology guide, and seeking out her daily insights on her Facebook page. She’s also a friend and we always have a great time together as you will see in today’s episode.

My favorite thing about Kari though is how beautifully and clearly she puts language to concepts that some consider “airy fairy” to help us all understand how practical and useful it is to use our intuition and pay attention to what’s going on in the cosmos as well as down here on Earth. This is an especially great interview for the spiritually or energetically curious.
