200. Raj Jana: Learning How To Be Intimate With Life

Ep. 200

“If we could all just remember that every single person on this planet is seeking the same level of intimacy, the whole world would change.” 


As we kick-start Q4, I’m excited to bring the first ¾ of 2021 to a close with this powerful reflective conversation. This one is even more poignant for me because it’s episode #200 so I’m also holding space to acknowledge and appreciate the journey that got me here and all the incredible people I’ve interviewed and connected with along the way. Thank you. 


September was a big month for me. I had some of the most painful growth experiences, and I’m so grateful for the opportunities that empowered me to transcend into deeper levels of intimacy with myself, my interpersonal relationships, and with life. 


All this happened inside an increasingly divisive and chaotic world where we’re being called to find our true voice while navigating the shifting sands of society. 


“It took me years to get to this place where I feel powerful enough to choose my reality and not allow the noise outside of me to hinder my sense of self, my calling, my work, my personal power.” 


As usual, my dear friend Georgina El Morshdy is here to hold space, provide reflections, and help us navigate this important conversation about sovereignty, intimacy, and living authentically with your true self. 


Here are some of the key takeaways you’ll hear us discuss: 


  1. How it feels to record the 200th episode of Stay Grounded. 
  2. The important difference between sexuality and intimacy. 
  3. The experience of moving beyond the honeymoon phase in my relationship. 
  4. Using your interpersonal relationships to find and heal core wounds.
  5. How a practice of awareness expands everything.
  6. Finding sovereignty inside of external chaos and uncertainty. 
  7. Allowing your body to alchemize what you’re feeling. 
  8. Finding your voice in a world of chaos. 
  9. Purpose is not what you do, it’s who you are
  10. Leveraging death cycles to heal and grow. 
  11. And more...


These monthly reflections are always an anchor for me because I get to practice being seen in even bigger ways. 


I hold little back in these episodes because I want to give you an intimate glimpse into the rich benefits that emerge from diving deep into self-growth and personal development. I’m passionate about the power and healing potential of self-awareness and by showing you how these energies inspire and empower my life, I hope they open up something deeper for you too. 


Thanks for being part of this incredible community. Here’s to the next 200 conversations. 

 

“Intimacy is an art, it’s a feeling, it’s something that you can experience with life.”

207. Gina Worful & Raj Jana: How To Be Grateful When You’re Not Feeling It

Ep. 207
“I think we can use our challenges or our pains to go into gratitude with that lens of like, “How can I be grateful for it?”.”This week’s episode is the recording of an impromptu conversation between me and my sweetheart - the incredible Gina Worful. Here’s the backstory… It was Thanksgiving morning and Gina and I got talking about all the things we’re grateful for. We went deep; remembering all the people, opportunities, and synchronicities that have shown up for us. As we reflected together, some deep insights bubbled up and we realized that we wanted to share them with you.This episode is the product of that decision. I hope you enjoy it.“I think we needed to actually go against the grain of our intuition in order to break ourselves open and get those sledgehammer experiences.”A brilliant dietician, Gina is exceptionally gifted at bringing spiritual concepts back to the body - so we can experience who we are on a physical level more deeply. In her work, Gina helps people connect to their body through food and I really appreciated how this angle showed up in this conversation.Here’s what else we discussed:The power of listening to life’s nudges to change.How the death of Raj’s mentor inspired him to change his life.Why do we allow our health to get off track?What stops us from listening to instincts & intuition.Why anxiety shows up.How it feels to connect with yourself.Gina’s story of feeling gratitude for the moment when her life fell apart.The power of using fear to identify your edges.Why gratitude is like prayer.How food cravings are whispers that something needs to change.Leaning into the wisdom of the body.And more…It’s easy to be grateful for all the good things in your life and it doesn’t take much to show appreciation when life is on the up. But can you stay in a place of gratitude when you’re going through the worst struggles?One of the biggest takeaways for me was leaning into the power of feeling gratitude for the pain - knowing that there’s a learning or a hidden gift waiting to be discovered somewhere.I loved this episode because it helped me uncover insights about gratitude I’ve never discussed before. I’m grateful this conversation allowed me to uncover them. I hope you enjoy this conversation too.“I feel like our souls are choosing a path before we choose our path. Our souls know.”Contact Info:Raj details.www.ginaworful.com/programshttps://www.instagram.com/gina.worful/Summary/ Call to Action:We thrive on your feedback, so if you’ve enjoyed this show, please rate us and leave us a review.
