257. Loka Pandya: How To Connect With Childlike Joy

Ep. 257

“I realized that joy is about working through your emotions, releasing your emotions, and also being intentional about your joy.”

Loka Pandya is a motivational speaker, serial entrepreneur, a DeLorean collector, and a passionate life enthusiast who’s dedicated to deep healing work. 

In his work, Loka is on a mission to awaken the inner child joy that lies within all of us. Loka’s passion for igniting joy began after his mother died when he was 13. Almost overnight, Loka transformed from a highly competitive, ambitious teen into a young man who wanted to help others feel better. 

Over time, his overgiving character put him on a rollercoaster of extreme highs and deep lows. The pattern was exhausting. Loka succeeded in making the world happy, but inside, he was sad. In response, Loka threw the kitchen sink at his healing journey, trying every tool and modality he could get his hands on. 

This inner journey taught Loka that healing depended on his ability to feel his true emotions. He also learned you could intentionally trigger joy and choose how to feel. 

Today, Loka empowers people to tap into their childlike joy so they can experience more love and happiness. This episode is a heartwarming dive into Loka’s personal journey of healing, along with tools and tips for igniting joy and reconnecting with your inner child. 

“The more play you put in, the happier, more joyous you're going to be, and be intentional about it.” 

Key takeaways:

  • Exploring your relationship with receiving.
  • What happens when the high highs and low lows become exhausting? 
  • Loka’s “folder of joy.” 
  • Reframing triggers into initiations. 
  • Pausing to create space for a response. 
  • Reclaiming control of your power to choose. 
  • The power of healing through baby steps. 
  • Doing the one thing each day that helps you heal.

262. Steve Little: Stop Efforting, Start Listening

Ep. 262
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. Contact Info:About SteveLinkedInTwitterWe thrive on your feedback, so if you’ve enjoyed this show, please rate us and leave us a review.
