262. Steve Little: Stop Efforting, Start Listening
This episode is a re-run of one of my favorite episodes from the year with my dear friend, mentor, and soul brother - Steve Little. As I get ready for my yearly reflection, I’ve been going back through old notes and episodes to revisit key principles that made the most profound shifts in the way I live my life. Steve’s perspectives on “efforting” led to some pretty important breakthroughs, hence it’s being shared again. Steve is the CEO and managing partner of Zero Limits Ventures, a M&A advisory, investment banking, and consulting firm. Steve has been an entrepreneur for 45 years. He sold his first business when he was just 15 for $250k. Since then, Steve has architectured 6 nine-figure tech exits and led the M&A teams for 9 tech acquisitions. What I love most about Steve is the way he integrates energetics into the way he operates in business. Steve reminded me that there are unconscious forces that create our reality every day. As you’ll hear in the episode, Steve takes ownership of his own energetic blueprint by continuously doing the inner work to clear his system of what’s no longer aligned. “So my experience has been: the clearer I can be, the easier this is.”Tune in now to hear Steve and I explore: Steve’s story of supporting AIDS orphans in Africa. Working with the foremost authority of the Hoʻoponopono ancient Hawaiian healing method. Self-forgiveness. Cleaning up what’s within you. How to create your dream life on a piece of paper. Finding the balance between leaning back & leaning in. Why you need to continue to seek. What Steve does when things aren’t working. The Starbucks story of universal timing. And more…“You have the power to manifest anything you want, you just have to put it out there. If you can put it out there and feel it as if it's occurred, it's on its way, it's going to happen.”I love meeting people who are so bold about the role that spiritual conviction plays in creation. In this episode, Steve shares some of the practices that have allowed him to co-create with the universe along with stories that provide proof that the universe is always communicating with you.

261: Victoria Rose: Enrolling Your Parents In Your Healing Journey
This episode is a conversation with Victoria Rose - a writer, teacher, and traditional birth witness, pre- and perinatal educator, and birth consultant. Through her work, Victoria helps people access their birth memories, offering deep healing for individuals on the path to greater mental, emotional, and physical health.Here’s a beautiful website excerpt highlighting her body of work. “Memory may be more accurately defined as not what we remember but rather what we don’t remember. Woven into the fabric of our bodies are the records of our birth and pre-birth experiences. In order to access these living archives, we must step outside our cognitive thinking-brains and merely look to the present.”Re-visiting our own birth, in-utero, conception, and pre-conception experiences will reveal the extent to which our physical health, mental and emotional patterns, professional limitations, and ways of being in relationship are directly informed by our earliest developmental experiences.”What I loved most about our conversation was how Victoria inspired a beautiful opportunity to enroll my parents in my healing journey. Over the past few months, I’ve had many conversations with my mom and dad - sometimes separately, sometimes together. I’m grateful that each has led to profound realizations and deep cathartic releases. I believe our parents (whether we have physical access to them or not) play such a powerful role in our journeys to greater health. I hope this conversation with Victoria inspires you to lean deeper into your upbringing with curiosity, compassion, and love.
260. Raj Jana: The Freedom In Letting Things Go
This month was one of the more potent months of change, which as always, creates the most potent containers for reflection. I moved out of my home in San Diego and decided to move to Costa Rica with my beloved, got rid of 90% of my stuff, and embarked on a deep mental, emotional, and physical cleanse in preparation for an indigenous medicine ceremony in the jungles this month. 2023 has been a crazy year for me, and one of the things I love most about my monthly reflections is that you guys get to watch the journey unfold alongside me. I never really know what I’m going to talk about each month, as the lessons and perspectives are always inspired by what’s present in the conversation. In fact, recently, the reflection episodes have been as much for myself to process all of the change that’s been happening in my life as they are to share useful perspectives. But with that said, I hope this episode finds you well. I hope it inspires the courage to follow your heart no matter where it takes you. I hope it inspires the courage to trust in forces unseen. I hope it inspires you to remember the home within yourself. We thrive on your feedback, so if you’ve enjoyed this show, please rate us and leave us a review.

258. Panache Desai: Unraveling The Truth Of Who You Are
The last time I was with Panache was right before the COVID lockdowns. The time I spent with him as he launched his book, You Are Enough - Revealing the Soul to Discover Your Power, Potential, and Possibility, changed my life profoundly. Thanks to his spiritual wisdom and loving support, he inspired the courage to look at the parts of myself I was afraid to look at and dive deeper into my own spiritual journey. Panache Desai is a visionary thought leader and a life catalyst in the area of human development. This incredible human has appeared on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, he’s collaborated with Deepak Chopra and has worked with everyone from Neale Donald Walsh to Joe Dispenza, Brian Weiss, Ram Dass, James Redfield, and other luminaries in the fields of spiritual and personal development. When Panache called me out of the blue a few months back and proposed we record another episode together, I said yes in a heartbeat. And after we finished recording the episode, I knew why he called. When the student is ready, the teacher appears. His perspectives were the messages I needed to hear. It was a reminder of infinite possibilities and to trust in a greater unfolding. It was a reminder to surrender deeply into the flow of life and create from a space of deep knowing. This conversation is almost 1.5 hours long (twice the length of our normal episodes) and FULL of gold. I hope you guys enjoy listening to this episode as much as I did recording it. Key takeaways:Discovering the truth of who you are. Do we really have free will. Why choice itself is an illusion.Learning to value yourself. Why we’re so obsessed with personal growth. Why rejection leads to self-censoring. If you don’t like something in someone else, resolve it in yourself. Through acceptance, we can become aware of ourselves. How self-awareness creates space for trauma to rise and release. The hierarchy of consciousness. Why awareness equates to freedom. Why freedom & liberation is the North Star. Understanding the root of suffering. Why comparison is impossible.
