I used to LOVE this show. I binged listened when I first came across it a few years ago. I loved the interviews, her life story and accomplishments, and interviews with knowledgeable people about the chosen topics. I loved how she supported theory and ideas with facts and science. It made it all make sense I.e LOA and intuition. However I stopped listening when it all started to sound like one big marketing campaign for services, classes, and shows. Everything seemed to be pointing the audience to something she is marketing. It no longer seemed genuine. I understand you have to make money, but don’t degrade the content while seeking compensation. I hope it will one day return to the show of yesteryears that I couldn’t get enough of.

Beyond grateful!!

Podcast cover
Read more
Today's Lively Show episode is the perfect blend of deep introspection, inspiration, practical how-to, and fun!

I'm talking with Caroline Rector of the minimalist fashion blog, Unfancy.

Caroline's blog focuses on creating a "capsule wardrobe," which - for her - means wearing the same 37 pieces (including shoes!) for three months at a time.

I knew I had to have her on the show to share the journey that brought her to the concept... and share her insights for those of us who would like to attempt a similar experiment in our own wardrobes.

This show is perfect for anyone interested in trying a creative wardrobe framework, simplifying, discovering their true style, or tackling difficult shopping issues.
The two big limiting beliefs that Caroline had to overcome in her life which eventually brought her to style and fashion blogging.
How Caroline reexamined her negative thought patterns and mainstream media messages in order to change the way she looked at herself and reality. (Heads up: we talk about breasts.)
The four month long soul journey that Caroline went on between ending her previous career and starting her new one as a minimalist fashion blogger.
Where the concept of capsule collections comes from, and the blogs that helped introduce Caroline to the concept initially.
Why Caroline has settled on the number 37 for her capsule collections.
How Caroline approaches setting the number of pieces in a capsule collection and her suggestions for others thinking to do something similar.
Caroline's approach to shopping when she's creating a capsule.
The step-by-step guide to starting your own capsule collection experiment.
The revelations that Caroline experienced from not clothes shopping for long periods of time.
How this shift in shopping and style has impacted the rest of Caroline's life.
Caroline's recommendations for those who have full-time jobs or two separate roles that require completely different types of clothing.
What Caroline would tell someone just starting out on this journey.

In today’s TLS I’m sharing my newest live class, Magic, Not Manual, with you -- which is designed to help you begin to create and manifest in your life beyond your mind’s abilities, limitations, and resistance.

After working with over a thousand students worldwide via Flow With Intention Online, and exploring the powers of brain states to create the life we want through Cschool... I’ve been diving into the practice of manifesting beyond our minds.

And I want to share this next evolution of conscious, less-mind manifesting with you.

We are going to be teaching this course live on April 6th in Pittsburgh, and if your intuition feels it’s a fit, I’m excited to work with you -- and for you to meet everyone else who joins us from the FWIO community!

Podcast cover

This episode is very near and dear to my heart and I have been looking forward to sharing this with you, my dear friends, for a while now.

For many reasons which are explained in this episode, I have asked bestselling author, Katherine Woodward Thomas, on the show to share her new book, Conscious Uncoupling, which lays out her five step process to consciously uncoupling and living happily even after.

I have used Katherine’s process personally over the past few months, and it has transformed a potentially negative or destructive process into one of peace, joy, and love. Now, I’d like to share her approach with you.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn about a five step process to help lovingly complete a relationship wholeheartedly, or for anyone who wants to learn about a meaningful new chapter in my own life.

Katherine tells us how her life was defined by growing up with her parent’s divorce and how that evolved today as an author and psychotherapist.
She tells us the story of how she set intentions for her life and the beginnings of her inner journey of self reflection.
Katherine shows us how she used her own personal experience in creating her seven steps to help people with their relationships.
She tells us about her uncoupling with her husband and the positive outcome it had on her life as well as her family’s lives.
She describes that finding emotional freedom moves us from the difficult and emotional issues of a breakup to a more positive outcome.
Katherine explains that you need to shift your perspective and begin taking personal responsibility for your part in the relationship and thus reclaim your power and your life.
She talks about her ”source-fracture story" theory and  how it’s been the underlying cause of disappointing patterns in love which can help heal your heart.
Katherine says that couples need to see themselves as capable of generating a positive future themselves and everyone impacted by the breakup..

Katherine finishes with her fifth step which is to create your happily even after life by making wise and life-affirming decisions as they reinvent their life.

She tells us how “affect labeling” can help us control feelings and emotions.

Katherine describes how uncoupling can leave you better equipped to love with a bigger, more trusting heart.

Podcast cover

This is my first week back in the States!

(Talk about “all the feels.”)

Before leaving in May, I was most curious to know how this trip would “change me” - since so many people said extended international travel would do just that.

Well, today I’m reflecting on the top 10 lessons I’ve learned - and what I think I’m going to do in my life (based on this experience) going forward.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about the lessons I’ve learned this summer which apply to us all, near or abroad.  
10. Follow your intuition, even when things feel uncertain.
9. How to use flow to direct my adventures.
8. Internal alignment is greater than external expectations. (following other people’s flow is not going to work for me).
7. Sometimes the Flowing gets tough.
6. Sometimes there’s a dip after a really, really great period.
5. Your skills and values can never be taken away.
4. Pain happens, suffering is optional.
3. We don’t have to own to appreciate.
2. Our emotions do not need to equal our circumstances.
1. How have I changed on this journey?

Rank #7: TLS #229: The most powerful way to change unwanted thoughts & behaviors I’ve ever found with Marisa Peer

Podcast cover
Read more
As I’ve been diving into the creation of our thoughts (and subsequently our behaviors), I’ve uncovered the incredible power of the subconscious mind on the outcomes in our lives.

Then, I wanted to discover methods to reprogram these subconscious beliefs, which brought me to Britain’s top rated therapist, Marisa Peer, and her incredible Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT).

In fact, I found my own RTT session so powerful, I recently devoted a few weeks to becoming certified as a Rapid Transformational Therapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist myself.

Today, I’m having Marisa on the show to explain why the subconscious is so powerful, how it works, and how you can change your own beliefs and behaviors in a single RTT session, instead of months or years in traditional talk therapy.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to understand the workings of the subconscious mind, and why our thoughts or behaviors often cause us pain - even when we seem to “know better.”
[Tweet "“The mind is very logical." - @marisapeertherapy"]
[Tweet "“The words you use determine the outcome you will get." - @marisapeertherapy"]
[Tweet "“Depression is linked to not following your heart’s desire." - @marisapeertherapy"]
[Tweet "“The mind can be programmed to respond to change." - @marisapeertherapy"]
Marisa tells us why she became a hypnotherapist and later sought to teach others this technique of programming the mind.
She discusses the differences between traditional (talk) therapy verses hypnotic therapy.
Marisa talks about how powerful the mind is to human beings and that we can the ability to control it, consciously and subconsciously.
She details the reasons we need to relax the nervous system for hypnosis and where the subconscious actually resides in our bodies.
Marisa talks about how some modern diseases or health issues are psychosomatic, fostered by the brain, in efforts to protect us or punish us.
She tells us what Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is and how it’s so powerful and also very different from other types of therapies.
Marisa tells us one of the biggest challenges she is facing is getting the medical community on board with the concept of RTT since this is a non-medical ways to change the thinking of the brain in patients.
She says that there are three things to know about the brain; it likes what is familiar but can be wired to what’s unfamiliar, it responds to the pictures and words in your head, and it does what you truly want.

Today we’re talking with a client named Alexandra, who is looking for career guidance, and the session ultimately flows into a tutorial for tapping into your own inner sense of calm. If the mind in you is struggling with self-worth, this episode will feel like a balm to your soul.

We discuss letting go of what we think our life “should” look like and the mind’s need for external validation. We also explore what to do when the mind in you gets impatient and wants to effort its way to its desires. We go into more detail than ever before on how to tap into your own Inner Voice, and I even learn some new things from Alexandra’s Inner Being!

Alexandra and I spent a lot of this session focusing beyond the mind, and the drastic change in energy and tone of voice when Alexandra shifts from the mind in her to her Inner Voice is incredible.

Podcast cover

Today on the Lively Show, I'm talking about one of my favorite topic's and answering a listener question, from Emily R., about how to listen to your intuition and know when it is telling you something (or if it is your ego).

This is a huge topic that can literally change the course of your life (it has for me), and gives you access to incredible wisdom and guidance which exist within you.

I'm also going to be sharing two of my favorite ways to get insights from your intuition that you can use today.

This show is perfect for anyone who is feeling confused, frustrated, or lost in a particular area of their lives, or anyone who wants to finally tell the difference between their ego and intuition.

[Tweet "Intuition focuses on what we need in order to feel peace and clarity in the present moment."]

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." -  Albert Einstein


Announcements about the 2015 Life With Intention Online & a surprise I'm cooking up for you next week. How to listen to your intuition. The most important thing to do for people who are just starting to listen to their intuition. How to verbally connect with your intuition. How to write to your intuition for better, fuller clarity. How to know if your intuition is speaking or your ego. How to avoid serious situations your intuition is warning you about and listen to your intuition early on.

A Conversation With My Intuition

{{Backstory: This particular conversation is from many months ago and is about a project I have not yet shared. So for now, the topic is replaced by blanks. When the time is right, I’ll share the whole story.}}

ME: [Intuition], why do I have this inner conflict? What is it about? 
INTUITION: It is about the reason that you are supposed to _. You are already helping people – but that has grown a bit dim.
And you are happy right now in your comfort zone, at least for a little while.
Just taking the changes that you have made [so far] has left you a bit burned out and moving so fast you weren’t able to really feel safe.
So you kinda put this out of your mind and reveled in a break from the fast pace that you have been on – or at least you think you have been on.
But the truth is that you are ready.
Why I am I supposed to _
Because it will help people. And you.
But I already help people, why _ specifically?
Because you will connect to them in a deeper way, in a transformative way that you cannot do in one-on-one sessions or on the blog.
Will I really help them? I’m scared.
You are scared of the unknown. You always have been. This just feels bigger to you.
It feels bigger to me because I know that I heard you say it. You told me to _
I’ve never asked you before and now it feels big and important and really like if I don’t do it perfectly than I will fail at my purpose.
I will fail at my destiny. 
It is not your destiny to _. That is a part of your journey and nothing more.
Okay, that takes some pressure off of it. Thanks. 
Also, you cannot fail at it.
As long as you decide to do it and listen to me, it cannot fail. The only way it can fail is if you don’t do it at all.
And even then, you are whole and complete. Nothing is lacking.
Yes. But I know that I’m supposed to __ and every moment that I don’t do it, it feels farther away.
More distant. More likely to fail.
I’m also scared that it won’t be very good. I don’t feel like I have dominion over the other areas – not like I do the home parts.

I have loved getting to know Brooke as a guest and friend since this interview first aired, and I still go back and listen to this episode to get a refresher on the truth and liberation that Brooke delivers in this interview.

In particular, I LOVE the part where she shared that every emotion we think we will feel “once X, Y, or Z happens” is actually available to us right now, in this very moment. And the part about thoughts, emotions, and actions has become a powerful aspect of Work + Worth as well.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to understand the concept of “ego” (as I refer to it on the show) and wants to learn a step-by-step process to change negative thought patterns.

Rank #17: TLS #159: A Lively Adventure: Our emotions do not equal our circumstances

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s Lively Show is going into a subject that I’m fascinated by: the connection (or disconnection) between circumstances and emotions.

This is some new territory on TLS, we have touched on emotions briefly in this episode with Brooke Castillo, and today I’m going deeper into how we can chose to positively shift our emotions despite circumstances that would normally “dictate” otherwise. And, how by choosing positive emotions before things happen, situations unfold in better than “expected.”

This episode is perfect for anyone who is looking to have more positive feelings and less emotional reactivity to circumstances (or other people’s emotions) in their lives.
[Tweet "“Our emotions are triggered by our circumstances." - @JessCLively"]
[Tweet "“We can only be the light, and wait for them to ask how we shine." - @JessCLively"]
Even though our circumstances can vary, our access to different emotions is relatively limited.
The scale of emotions (see below) and how they relate and range in your life.
How our circumstances do not have to define where we land on this scale.
Why we don’t always need to feel the worst because of the worst circumstances.
Due to the large amount of circumstances and limited amount of emotions, the scale can help us identify where we and others are on the scale.
We can see what emotions we gravitate to the most, it allows us to have empathy for ourselves and others, we can question whether the emotion we are currently feeling is serving us in the situation or see if we can float to a higher emotion.
Can we choose our emotions before our circumstances?
Why we need to model our behavior for others so they desire what your secret is to adjust their emotion and mood.

We don’t need to attach our own emotional well-being to the moods of others.

Rank #18: TLS #171: How to Get out of Fear and Back into Flow + Alignment With Gabby Bernstein

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s Lively Show is with a special guest I’ve looked forward to having on the show since we started, Gabby Bernstein.

Gabby is a spiritual teacher, best-selling author, and youtuber with a new book out called The Universe Has Your Back - which is a perfect compliment to what we’ve been discussing here on the show this summer about finding flow and alignment.

In the episode, we’ll be talking about Gabby’s favorite tools and techniques to get back into love, flow, and alignment whenever fear takes over.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking for strategies to help quickly move out of fear and get back into flow, alignment, and love on a moment-to-moment basis.
[Tweet "“The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting your own strength." - @GabbyBernstein"]
[Tweet "“Take action from a surrendered place." - @GabbyBernstein"]
[Tweet "“Where your attention goes your energy flows." - @GabbyBernstein"]
[Tweet "“Our presence is our greatest source of power." - @GabbyBernstein"]
Gabby tells us about how she began her career by running a PR business but that fast-paced life pushed her to the point of burn-out.
She talks about how she was deeply embedded in the NYC party scene and how that lifestyle, drugs and alcohol did not help her find the happiness she was seeking.
Gabby digs deeper about her struggles with drugs and alcohol and how that led her to a big crash in her life and how that low point helped her reevaluate what she was doing in her life and that she needed change.

She describes how a recent breakdown allowed her to remember a childhood trauma which helped produce some of the reasons and answers to her addictions.
Gabby talks about how taking action from a surrendered place is how we truly manifest our desires into form.
She describes how she focused her energy into what was thriving rather than what was lacking to place herself in a place spiritual surrender.
Gabby mentions how important it is to be the positive influence, the positive force, so that this energy will shine on you and the world around you.
Gabby describes the feeling  she experiences when she is channeling a spirit.

She shares her belief why there is a misconception that pain has purpose.

Rank #19: TLS #163: Alignment Before Action

Podcast cover
Read more
In today’s Lively Show, I’m sharing the career shift I’ve been making over the past 4-6 months that has resulted in some amazing and effective results.

I’m talking about making a shift from the “effort and action” mentality that is commonly spoken about in personal development and entrepreneurship spaces and replacing it with “alignment before action.”

This episode is perfect for anyone who is interested in trying a new approach to work and life that may result in more fun, flow, and effectiveness -- with less stress and burnout.
Why I ask the question, "What if we didn’t have to try so hard in our life to get the same results?"
What if we focus on our flow and alignment with our intuition first before taking action?
Why I spent 80% of my mornings making sure I was aligned so the remaining 20% of my actions were used writing my book.
How meditation in the morning has helped keep my alignment and flow in check.
How writing to my intuition is one of the biggest ways to uncover my alignment in these tougher moments.
How gratitude walks help us find our alignment and make all the actions and effort we take so much more effective.
When we feel frustrated or out of alignment, we should stop working and get ourselves back into a place of good, positive feeling before taking more action.

Rank #20: TLS #174: The words I’m using (and not using) which are making me happier everyday

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s show is all about the building blocks of a happier thought life, and ultimately happier emotions and circumstances: words.

Because when it comes to mindfulness, it’s not just about meditation and the observation of our thoughts, it’s also about our conscious choice and selection of the words we use to build thoughts, which create emotions, and ultimately attract circumstances - positively and negatively into our awareness.

I’ll be dishing about the obvious and the very subtle and powerful word choices that have created more high energetic states in my life which may benefit you as well.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to access higher emotional states on a more consistent basis.
[Tweet "“What I consume, affects how I feel." - @JessCLively"]
[Tweet "“We feel more worthy for the things we appreciate than the things we’re grateful for." - @JessCLively"]
[Tweet "“Doing is not being." - @JessCLively"]
How the power of words and mindfulness can produce a shift in our emotions without the circumstances dictating the emotions.
Why I try to stay away from negative idioms and how this can keep me in the present moment.
What the energy and meaning behind swear words are when you choose to use them.
What the word “should” means and how it creates an emotional state which often creates negative circumstances as well.
Why I prefer to use the words “my ego” or “your ego” to produce different emotions.
How I have become aware of the use of the word “but” and how to avoid using it and what that word resonates on an energetic, vibrational or emotional level. 
Why I’ve been using the word “Appreciation” rather than the word “gratitude” in my everyday life.
In terms of career, why I avoid “I am my career” since doing is not being.
Why I’m mindful of the language I use about past relationships, since many words and phrases generally relate to negative rather than the love and care that was part of that relationship.
Why I love Approval Affirmations and how it helps me in my everyday life.
