S2-EP37: Procrastination or Premium
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss the pitfalls of procrastinating. When we procrastinate we are in a resistive state of being. Do you define procrastination as power or control? Do you use it to increase drama in your experiences? Did you know that procrastination can be used as an alert from your internal guidance system? Listen in as we discuss the connection between procrastination, intention, and trust. These are important distinctions to make. We also share additional insight about the emotional guidance scale. You can find details at this link https://enlighten1.com/cool-ass-conversations/.

S2-EP36: Keeping Up With You
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss what it means to keep up with yourself. When you are on the path of self development, and you now know that you create your own reality, what then? That's where refining your ability to discern your preferences really becomes a constant exercise. It can even become habitual. If you're doing it well, you can begin to take your wellbeing for granted. Listen in as we dig into some of the ways this shows up for us and how we are managing it.

S2-EP35: Say It Again
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle, and guest Eyembe Elango discuss the tricky business of effective communication. Technology has created a global environment for communication that transcends common language barriers through the use of emojis and text language (sms/text speak, like OMG or LOL). African American Vernacular English phrases and expressions have also become globally adopted. These are common elements of communication. However we sometimes experience issues of being understood and intending to help others see what we mean. Have you ever said something that was taken entirely differently than you meant it? Do you sometimes misinterpret what others say to you? This can be frustrating or disappointing. When we release expectations, we learn to communicate more effectively. Listen in as we examine funny examples of how this has come to our attention. www.Enlighten1.com; VSGEE_NME Podcast; www.FacetoftheJewel.com;

S2-EP34: The Thing About Timing
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss the concept of timing and how we evolve as humans, such as transitioning from childhood to adulthood. These ideas have a basis in social conditioning and agreements. Our culture defines 'appropriate' timing for some things, but we don't have to agree with these social structures. How do you understand timing? What does 'right timing' mean to you? There is a relationship between timing and manifestation and the secret lies in the power of your FOCUS! Listen in as we get into the dynamics of timing, manifesting and commanding our focus.

S2-EP33: How Did I Miss That?
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss how we don't always get the message when experiencing something expansive. Have you ever seen a movie and realized upon watching again that you missed some details? We aren't always ready for all the information that may be available to us during a transmission. There are frequently more layers of information available than we can discern or perceive until we're ready. Are you ready to expand? Listen in as we share experiences of opening up to more.

S2-EP32: No Matter What!
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss techniques for maintaining alignment during provoking interactions. What do you do when faced with a frustrating interaction? Do you escalate to match the energy of the other party? Do you define intensity as passion? We all have moments where it becomes important to de-escalate a situation. When we focus on solutions it becomes easier to understand how to respond with greater compassion and effectiveness. Listen in as we review how this works and what we can do differently. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One.

S2-EP31: African Proverbs
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle examine the connections between African proverbs and African American adages. During a text exchange Nicole and Eyembe discovered that they knew of similar sayings involving a 'long spoon' or as Nicole's grandmother would frequently say, "Sometimes you have to feed people with a long handled spoon". This is a term used to indicate that you need to distance yourself from another party so they don't bite the hand that feeds them or exploit you. This lead to further exploration of the topic of things we always hear and say and how they persist throughout African cultures. Listen in as we talk about some of the funny and insightful proverbs we have heard. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One.

S2-EP30: Work Deliberately, Not Hard
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss the importance of deliberate intent instead of accepting memes such as success requires hard work. The metaphysical path embraces ease, allowing and alignment as requirements for success. Hard work is not sustainable, nor is it efficient. Moving with deliberate intent is a great way to work smart. Deliberate intent can be facilitated by minding your words. The word abracadabra means "I will create as I speak." This magical term helps us remember that our words have power. We cast spells over our experiences through our words. When we are deliberate in the words we speak, magic happens in our lives. It's already working that way. Are you using your power of creation intentionally? Are you aware of the words you wield over your life? Listen in as we explore this topic and share examples of how we apply this understanding.

S2-EP29: What Are You Waiting For?
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss what it means to wait. Waiting is remaining stationary, taking a pause or looking forward expectantly. However it can be an action as in to serve or attend to, like when you wait upon something. It can also mean hidden or concealed position, which would indicate a belief that doesn't serve you. Are you waiting for a sign? Are you waiting for conditions to be right before you make a move? The idea of waiting can hinder your expansion, growth, or progress along your path. When you understand what waiting is energetically, you may choose to no longer wait. Alignment is a far more powerful position. Listen in as we dig into the details of playing the waiting game with your life and how to avoid it's pitfalls.

S2-EP28: What Do You Expect?
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss the trappings of perceiving the world with assumptions and expectations. They can set you up for experiences that you don't prefer. Expectations are attachments and can limit what you are allowing to come into your life. Are you expecting things from people? Do you get upset when your assumptions are not agreed to by others? Listen in as we examine how this works in our lives. We had fun using travel analogies to highlight how we all pack differently based on our assumptions and expectations. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One.

S2-EP27: Boundaries and Grudges
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss how we manage boundaries and grudges from a metaphysical perspective. When we have greater self-awareness, it changes who we perceive others. Do you know how to demonstrate unconditional love during a stressful interaction with another person? Are you defining aggression from others as a personal attack? Do you know that you can interpret more from these interactions and actively choose to have a different response to them. This often yields a better outcome that doesn't leave you begrudged or resentful. Listen in as we analyze what is happening when we encounter the need to establish boundaries.

S2-EP26: Rinse and Repeat
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss encounters with people who continue to do the same thing expecting different results. Sometimes we catch ourselves in the act of doing this. Do you have a claim that you constantly make? Do you sabotage yourself with negative self talk? We all do it, but when you are becoming more self aware, it gets easier to catch yourself in the thought stream of creating a reality you don't prefer. Listen in as we discuss examples of this happening and how we address it in the moment. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One.

S2-EP25: Crisis of Belief
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss what it means to have a crisis of belief. When your expansion clashes with old beliefs about something. This is happening right now within our American culture, our norms, our collective experience are all shifting. This shift will continue to happen as we develop a new perspective and make new decisions about how our society and personal lives will function. It's an important step as we're evolving along our paths. Listen in as we dig into this topic and relay advice about how to maintain vibrational balance.

S2-EP24: The Difference Between Woke and Awakened
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle break down what Woke really means in the African American experience. It is not the novelty term it has become since appearing in our national dialog. It also differs fundamentally from Awakening, a term used within the metaphysical community. Being woke in one area doesn't mean you are 'woke' across the spectrum of your beliefs. Listen in as we examine our experiences with these ideas and how they relate to the way we live today. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One. Learn more about the hosts at www.Enlighten1.com; VSGEE_NME Podcast; www.FacetoftheJewel.com; https://akashohana.com/the-frequency-forum/; We mention in the dialog the 16 Premises of Highly Evolved Beings which can be found at https://akashohana.com/highly-evolved-beings/

S2-EP23: Manifesting Happiness
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss manifesting happiness. So often we hear of phrases like 'the pursuit of happiness'. What does this really mean? Do you believe that happiness is something you have to chase down or somehow acquire? We examine how happiness is a state of being, not a prize that can be possessed. Listen in as we expand our understanding of how to choose happiness. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One.

S2-EP22: Unconditional Love vs. Fear
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss the differences between unconditional love and fear. It's common for people to attribute fear based ideas to the concept of love. When we are clear on the aspects of unconditional love it becomes easier to discern fear masquerading as love. For example anger is fear with a mask, so is disappointment, jealously and despair. Have you ever had someone express any of those emotions and say they do it because they love you? That is fundamentally not valid. Fear is fear, love is love. Listen in as we discuss the distinctions between love and fear. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One. Learn more about the hosts at www.Enlighten1.com; VSGEE_NME Podcast; www.FacetoftheJewel.com.  Material read in this episode is from Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz.

S2-EP21: Be In the World But Not of It
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss how to be among people who don't understand metaphysical principles while maintaining your center. We explore applying the Law of Detachment and Don Miguel Ruiz's The Four Agreements, specifically not taking anything personally. It can be challenging but it doesn't have to be a struggle. In fact, when you remain steady in your understanding, it is easier to navigate what others present to you in interactions.

In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a.

Just after it happened, Ashua recapped why it was so easy to dismiss this lesson. Yet it was important to understand why such a seemingly small thing was actually a really big deal! Listen in to understand what they observed about what each of them focused on and how it impacted their experience in the same space. Law of attraction is always at work.

In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle discuss how people cross our paths and give us clues as to where we're going or the energy we're broadcasting. It can be insightful and benefit us if we know how to use the information. When we are able to stop and reflect on what we're doing, we can discern how to proceed or adjust. What others reflect back to us often inspires or influences who we ultimately become. It's time to do this more consciously and deliberately. Listen in for more perspective on how we can live beyond our boxes of belief. This podcast is brought to you by Enlighten One.

That's law of attraction and naturally occurring abundance. What we draw into our awareness or focus, increases. The more we appreciate, the more we find to appreciate.

S2-EP14: How to Release Attachments
In this episode of Cool Ass Conversations, hosts Ashua Nicole, Big Gee, and Johnny Holmes a.k.a. Apostle get into the details of why and how to release attachment to things we believe we need. Often attachments are things that don't really serve us. Do you know how to identify what you are attached to? Do you think it's tough to get over things from your past? Attachments can be tied to how we identify in the world, our past pain or trauma, or things we once believed about ourselves. They are not always created by us but we guard them closely.
