258. Panache Desai: Unraveling The Truth Of Who You Are

Ep. 258

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.

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.
