How to Hold Space for a Man's Vulnerability
Socially, there is a fairly open understanding that women have feelings.  They have emotions, and they express them.  For men, although we may not express our emotions, we definitely have them - and this fact is often overlooked.  More and more men are finding expression now though, and since it is coming as quite a surprise for the women in their lives, today's podcast is about learning how to create a safe container for a man's vulnerable expression.

Empowering The Feminine
Women have been gaining more and more equality over the last several decades, but have they actually been given the freedom to be feminine?   This Heart Talk dives into a theory and question about what actually creates empowerment of the feminine.  Not the gender, but the qualities of the feminine archetype, which regardless of being a man or woman, we all have.  And could it be that rather than shouting about the power of being feminine, the real freedom could be in cultivating an awareness of the opposite - the masculine within.  For if the inner masculine is strong, their is a support for the feminine to express freely.

You Are Enough and Worthy
The question of worthiness and being enough has less to do with WHO you are, and more to do with how much you are being you.  If you are 100% you there is no doubt it is enough - it is 100%.  The problem is more all the ways in which we divide ourselves in thoughts, beliefs, doubts, and defenses.  What might happen if we allowed ourselves to reintegrate into wholeness?   Enjoy the podcast and for more inspiration check out  - The Brilliance Mission Be Happy, Be Brilliant Podcast Episode originally recorded March 6, 2021

Desire vs Escape
Desire has a diverse meaning, for some it is the spice of life, for others the root of all suffering.  I believe desire motivates us and gives us a guiding direction to head in.  All too often, we are more motivated by what we are avoiding, escaping from, than what we want to cultivate more of in our lives.  This podcast dives deep into how to clarify and turn toward what you want.

Moving From Surviving to Thriving
Most people are stuck in a survival (fight or flight) mindset, working hard every day just to pay the bills and maybe dream about a better life.  The problem is that most people focus on what they have or don't have now, and what they fear losing in the future.  This leads to more scarcity and more survival mentality.  This episode goes into what shift in mindset and belief must happen to start focusing on what you want in life, rather than what you are avoiding.

Expressing Your Boundaries Without Creating Barriers
Most people are terrible at expressing boundaries, not because they can't say No, but because they don't know what they want.  A boundary expressed with a barrier keeps everything out...including anything you might WANT to receive.  Thus, learning to express your boundaries with clarity rather than walls is an important key.  Today's podcast gets into just how to do that, along with a secret "ninja strategy" to make sure you express without offending others or neglecting your own needs.

Our Habits and Our Heart
Are you aware of the habits that determine your life direction?   We often don't realize that the little things we do daily are the building blocks of our future reality.  We might attempt to change our history with New Years resolutions, goals, and "I'll never do that again" statements...but ultimately the real power is to see the reality of this moment, allow for change, and set the direction with clarity.  Then the practice of positive habits begins to move you on that path.

The Art of Holding Space (TEDx Talk)
In 2011, I had the distinct honor of speaking at the first TEDx Talk in Bali, Indonesia.  I shared on the art of holding space - that act of presence we get to share with people in our lives and with ourselves deep inside.  Holding space is more than paying attention, it's an art of listening, acknowledging, supporting, seeing, and allowing.     Enjoy the podcast and for more inspiration check out  - The Brilliance Mission Be Happy, Be Brilliant Podcast
