More Moss to the People
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate" ...
Season 2, Ep. 10
Title of Episode: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate”...
Summary of Podcast:
Åsa reads one of her favourite Marianne Williamson passages out of the book, ‘A Return to Love’ and discusses how it brings her back to a moment in time when she shunned her own light and self abandoned in order to ‘give’ the light to another person who required it more. Or so she thought.
But what if there is enough light for us ALL?
There is … there all-ways is.

Why would a young woman need to hold on to her dreams like they were her life jacket?
Season 2, Ep. 20
Guest: Bella MillerSummary of Episode: Bella already has a lifetime of experience in her toolbox. She teaches yoga, reiki, meditation, works full time in strategy management, is a published author, and, oh, by the way, did I mention she is 24? Put on your OLD PERSON FACE now … “Young people today… they are so entitled.. they are so used to getting everything they want, they have always been told they can have everything.” Queue eye roll. “Are these the people that are going to be running our country when we get into retirement age?!?!”If Bella Miller is any indication as to the complexity and genuineness of the young people's minds today, then I say we are going to be in safe hands. How can we encourage deeper discussions in order to understand ONE ANOTHER more? The disparity of the ages doesn’t have to be what separates us… it can be what binds us. Opening up the lines of communication with the younger generation will only serve to help us all. And man! These kids are smart! Much smarter than I ever was. They have the world at their fingertips, so what responsibilities come with that? Let’s let Bella speak. I believe her. You will too.

Bella wrote a poem titled, "How can I be only 22 and feel this tired?" PREACH!Last year when her book was published, she felt she could finally slow down since she had the go-go-go pace since the age of 15.After graduating school and starting to work, Bella had no designated next milestones for the first time. How did that make her feel? Allowing herself just to be and not have to produce something. Has felt the pressure to do and be, finding a significant other, having an awesome job, to move.Bella’s life at 15, hit rock bottom. Depression. Went to bed and didn’t want to get up in the morning. Didn’t want to live. Trial and error for 8 years.“My dreams became my life jacket. What can help me dream and invite love into my heart and have hope in myself?” Pressures on young people today. “Not being enough is my biggest anxiety”. Bella recommends how we as elders can support the younger generations better: BELIEVE in them when they ask for support and want to share their dreams, wishes and wants. Offer a “Yes, I believe you. That makes so much sense. It's not going to be easy but how can I help you?”

What lie has to die for a truth to be born?
Season 2, Ep. 18
Host: Åsa Nilsson Title of Episode: What lie has to die for a truth to be born? Summary of Episode: What if the work of self realization never stops? What if you think you have ‘this down’ only to find your truth is leaking out someplace else? Our truths always come out … either intentionally or unintentionally. Listen in while I share what I have now discovered about my own people pleasing ways and how it's rearing its head in my podcasting. I promise. I will keep revealing my truths to you so that you KNOW you are not alone. None of us are. We grow together and this movement is for all of us. Host Contact Information:www.moremosstothepeople.comTAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE: Thank you for listening and being along on this movement/ journey with me. Here I am… people pleasing, showing all signs of codependency, back bending, self abandoning… AGAIN! I thought I was done with that! HA!Time to re-read ‘Boundary Boss’! My codependency has re-surfaced in another way now, my podcasting. You need my help? Magical words to me. Me looking at the time and worrying about you, the listener, not having the time to listen in on a long episode so I push along and think I know what your needs are when I have absolutely NO IDEA what your needs are. Only YOU do. The behaviour pattern of co-dependency. “Our family, like many families, was a perfect storm of covert communication and emotional dysfunction. My parents both came from families that avoided open discussions about anything painful or problematic. And there’s the heart of the matter: ineffective communications skills lead to weak or disordered boundary skills.” - Terri Cole, Boundary Boss, pg. 17. I grew up and still am the peacemaker. Over compensated for the lack of effective communication the only way I knew how, by distracting and deflecting the problems. “My cracks are being revealed to me”. “I therapized myself.”“ This podcast is helping me to heal”. How to feel and become free? What am I willing to give up in order to be free? I don’t have the answers. Nope, I sure don’t. What do you KEEP saying you’re going to do, ‘one day’. That day is now. Speak the truth. “If I have a truth, will I dare to share it?” Only you can answer that… as much as I’d like to answer it FOR you (haha) but I truly do want you to discover that for yourself. Then share it.Mentioned in this episode:Boundary Boss, Terri Cole. https://boundarybossbook.com/Contact Information for Komeil Asli, Podcast Production Manager:Komeil Asli Freelance UI/UX Designer + front end Developer. firstname.lastname@example.org
