Do you kick yourself because you always seem to take the path of least resistance and wonder if you have any willpower or self-discipline at all? I'm the first to admit that I'm not the most disciplined person I know, but I do a bunch of things that allow me to maximize the impact of my willpower, and support myself in a positive way. In this episode I'm giving you a quick rundown of some of the theory around Willpower (and I'll say, it is very intuitive) and also outlining 4 simple ways you can maximize your self-discipline. Among other things, this episode covers: Why it is important not to waste our willpowerThe power of "bookending" your day with morning and evening routinesHow being preemptive in our thinking allows us to minimize the need to make decisions in the moment, and in turn, rely on willpowerAnd how we're all likely to have less willpower later in the day.

This one was an awesome full-circle moment for me! Mastin is a number one best-selling author of Daily Love and Claim Your Power, speaker and Creator of Functional Life Coaching™ for people who are seeking rapid transformation in their lives.He has been featured on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday in one of their highest rated episodes, and recognized as a “thought leader for the next generation” by Oprah Winfrey. He’s also a two-time contributor to Oprah’s new book.Mastin has built a highly successful international personal development company that helps people create rapid change, connect to who they really are and how to live their lives with passion and purpose. Through his writing, online courses, in-person seminars and international retreats, Mastin has worked with over two million people in over 100 countries around the world.In this episode, we're focusing on what Mastin has been doing lately, and his understanding of the power unhealed trauma is having unconsciously in so many of our lives.

How do you know it is Intuitive Guidance OR your busy mind coming up with ideas? What constitutes an intuitive-hit or a nudge from the Universe?--- Channel Your Chill, my group program is currently open for registration! Check it out here: ---A listener reached out to me recently to ask this, and she is far from the first person to bring it up. I can still remember back when I was sure I didn't have an intuitive bone in my body. Now - 5 years later - I consider myself incredibly tuned in to my inner guidance system. In this episode I'm talking through 4 particular checkpoints that can help you ascertain whether you're in alignment with your inner knowing, or whether you may have got caught in rumination or your overthinking mind. Some of the things covered include: The difference between Green Light intuition and your Warning System intuitionHow intuition is a feeling rather than thinking systemHow intuitive guidance will struggle to be heard over loud thoughtsWhat you can do to tune-inward and tune-out the outside world so you can hear your intuitionHow seeking approval outside of yourself kills intuitive connectionHow impulsivity is not intuition, and how if you are impulsive you can benefit from building in a contemplative practice before jumping to actHow trust is crucial to the processAnd the fineprint when it comes to intuition. What it can and can't do.There are quotes that I have peppered throughout this interview. If you would like to get those, head to also mention Ali Katz free Intuition Journal.

Niki is an experienced Reiki Master-Teacher with a really interesting story. She offers both Reiki sessions and also facilitates Reiki practitioner training workshops.After reaching her own rock bottom, struggling with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, she was led to Reiki through a series of synchronistic events. We talk more about her journey and I get my Reiki-for-dummies questions answered.I’ve been interested, yet confused, by the concept of Reiki for the longest time. So long, I felt it was about time I simply had a conversation where I had the chance to ask all of my completely inexperienced questions.And if I’m a little nosy about what on earth this Reiki thing is, then I’m betting a few of you have heard about it too. Or maybe you haven’t? If you have or you haven’t – you’ll still get SO much out of this conversation.Some of the things we cover in this episode include:-      What Reiki actually is-      How energy can be sent through time and space-      How we all have our unique energy signature, which means that two of us can do the same thing very differently-      How the idea of energy can be scary when you come from a religious background, but how it can be thought of as just another label for the holy spirit or gods presence-      How even if you aren’t a Reiki practitioner you can use Reiki energy-      The importance of the “feel good” factor when choosing a practitioner (or a Life Coach for that matter)-      How we can process the hurt and fear we see in the world today-      What sending #loveandlight means from a reiki perspective-      How we have the power to raise or lower our vibrations-      How important water is to our well-being and our we can supercharge our own water to make it even more awesome-      And tones more of courseTo find Niki, you can head to or on Instagram@highvelocityspiritualcoach.To find out more about Kate and her programs, head to

This episode with guest Tahlee Rouillon is full of magic. It was so juicy, and I was so engaged I totally forget to ask her my standard set of questions!The conversation is one part inspiration and one part the geeky and fascinating science behind binaural beats (or Meditones as Tahlee refers to them). In the first half of the conversation we talk in depth about Tahlee's finding her way to her soul's calling, and how she took anything but the direct route. Her journey is inspirational as it is so real, and you can also see the thread of magic that wove through it and brought her right back to where she was supposed to be.The second part is a fascinating discussion about the power certain types of music have to deepen our states and change our brainwaves. Tahlee makes her music, Meditones, which are designed to help people go into slower brainwaves states much more frequently. We also discuss just how meditation can make us feel calmer and more present in our waking hours due to neuroplasticity and our brain's ability to create new pathways.Honestly, I was mesmerized. If you're fascinated by any of the following, don't miss this episode:The idea that if you don't struggle you never build resilienceWhat a Saturn Return is, and how it shows up much like a quarter-life crisis (and how Tahlee experienced hers hard and heavy!)How we can live lives that are just 'fine' or dare to feel true joyHow the biggest adventures in our lives often stir simultaneously feelings of terror and excitement within usAn explanation of the 4 different brainwaves states we experienceBenefits of listening to music at particular frequenciesHow binaural beats or Meditones can induce instant calm, remove anxiety and so much moreHow Meditones are perfect for people who struggle to meditateHow exactly meditation works from a brain perspective and makes us happier humans in our waking hoursAn awesome explanation of neuroplasticityHow it is we get stuck in habits and repeat the same behaviors even when we don't want to.

I'm playing it again, because this concept is important, yet super simple. Are you reactive or proactive in life? This isn't necessarily a cut and dried question. Depending on what is going on in our lives we will often slip back into functioning very much in a reactive state, even if we're naturally more proactive people. It's about getting stuck on the treadmill of life and forgetting to step back for a second. In this episode I will talk through ways in which you can get yourself out of a rut and start living life from your front foot again. For the free resources I mention at the end, head to my website:

Specifically this ep covers:A definition of Authenticity - have to start with what it actually ISThe pre-requisites to authenticity - how to start becoming more authentic5 attributes that indicate connection with your authentic self.

In this episode I'm pulling back the curtain and letting you know what I talk to my clients about. I looked back at my clients over the last 12 months and tried to summarize what they came to me seeking help with. I was actually surprised to see 3 themes emerge quite rapidly. In this episode, I'm talking through those 3 themes, or 3 driving reasons that my clients tend to reach out to me and seek Life Coaching. My hope is that this episode will help you understand more, through example, what Life Coaching is, and how it helps people navigate their lives.

Today's guest is an Unconventional Mindfulness Facilitator & former cynical pessimist. She’s the woman that was ticking all the boxes but wasn’t necessarily feeling that deep sense of lasting satisfaction that most of us crave. Perhaps the best description ever – she felt like an empty coloring book. She’s a specialist in helping people not buy into the sometimes destructive mind-chatter that most of us experience. As she puts it, Andrea helps indecisive overachievers to get clear on their direction and sense of self by learning to tame their mind.In today's ep. I'm getting to the nitty gritty of mindfulness with Andrea. I really was wanting to understand what it meant to her, and why I might want to practice mindfulness. Specifically, we cover the following:How she defines MindfulnessWhat the ultimate aim of mindfulness practices areHow by separating our sense of self from our minds, we can become more powerful, clearer and feel more aliveWhat we can do when we need a mindfulness hitHow meditation can complement mindfulness, but how they ultimate differHow the cynical types among us can still experience mindfulness without the touchy feely edgeAndrea mentions her favorite book: Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. We also discuss his second book, A New Earth.

Most of have a tendency to get stuck on distractions, and sometimes drama, and often the most important stuff gets pushed aside.Today I'm talking about how to make sure the Important stuff (the things that matter most in your life) don't fall by the wayside and become dominated by the things that are nosier and demand your attention more - the Urgent things.Because a life well-lived is one where you're focusing on, and spending your time on, the stuff that matters most. In this ep. I talk through the Franklin-Covey Time Management Matrix. To see an image, head to my website: concept is spoken about in depth in Stephen Covey's book - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - under Habit 3: Put First Things First. I reference a Fortune article on this topic too. That can be found here: talk through how you can prioritize your own life, and some simple tools that can help you spend more of your time on the stuff that is truly important to you. Exercise: Towards the end of this episode I ask you to think about what things can go in your personal F*ck-It Bucket. Grab a piece of paper, put a line down the middle. Put a title on one side "What Matters Most", and on the other side title it "F*ck-It Bucket". This is a very quick and easy way to do an audit of your priorities and what you might need to pay more attention to.

What that means is that you can find every type of mediation imaginable, and it’s all > FREE!

Words have the power to create and transform our lives.  Taken from the Amazon snip it introducing her new book, Conscious Communication: Whether we realize it or not, the words we use dictate and control our lives. The persistent messages we repeat can frame our thoughts and trap us into a mind-set that is difficult to break. This mind-set often manifests itself with statements like “I can’t,” “I’m not good enough,” and “I’ll never find the [insert the blank] I want.” Many times, we don’t stop to consider the profound impact that these negative, limiting words have on our mentality, life choices, and the path of possibility that we manifest. I had the honor of chatting through this with Mary Shores. In this episode, we're talking all about how the way we talk to ourselves and communicate with the world around us, impacts on the experience we have. Change your language and you really can change your world.  I appreciate Mary's approach because she is completely practical. As we discuss in the interview, it is all well and good to hear many of the self-help anecdotes and theories, but how do you apply them to your life so that you can really see a change? That is where Conscious Communication can serve as a portal, a starting point, and something that you can really do something about.  Specifically in this interview we're covering:How Mary overcame adversity [including teenage parenthood, being told she wouldn't ever amount to much, the death of her first child, and divorce] to become a powerful force in her own life The 5 Keys to How we Communicate with Ourselves How communicating consciously can improve our lives and how Science & Spirituality have more in common than perhaps even I've been given them credit for! Mary's new book is called - Conscious Communication.

Has human's our brains are fascinatingly wired towards searching for, and paying attention to the negative.It does make sense from an evolutionary standpoint that to be afraid unnecessarily and flee a potentially dangerous situation is better for the human race than for us all being too busy looking at the roses to even care about potential threats.But this default wiring can cause us a great deal of stress in the modern day at age. In this episode I'm talking through what this Negativity Bias is, and how we can overcome the ways it limits us.

I didn't always know the answer to this question. I was attached to my surface identity, and it wasn't until I reached my 30's that I was put in a position where life begged me to address this. I was disconnected from myself, and it got to the point that it wasn't working anymore.In this podcast, I'm talking through my story, as well as how you can start to connect with your Authentic Self and show up in life. I'm highlighting that we are all beautifully, usually, uniquely perfect, and we need to celebrate that.Points include:Identity, and how it can mask our authenticityHow our unconscious identifications can particularly mess us upHow exactly we can start to connect with ourselvesAnd, why our own voices matter more than what we hear from outside of usI reference in this episode, Elizabeth Gilbert's speech, Flight of the Hummingbird.

This episode I'm talking why it's important to consider a Future Vision for yourself. Change is a constant, and yet most of us underestimate how much we do change!
