Personal Responsibility Means Letting Others Go

The truth about focusing on others as if they are your ticket to happiness? It’s a prison. The only way to really be free is to take full responsibility for the one you CAN grow and make choices for: yourself. That almost always means letting others go. (Even your kids.)

Depression: Deep Rest

This episode is on a quote I saw on Jim Carrey’s Twitter:

“The word depressed can be spoken as deep rest. We can choose to view depression not as a mental illness but as a state of deep rest, a spiritual exhaustion that we enter into you when we are de-pressed (pressed down) by the weight of the false self, the mask, the mind-made up story of “me”. We long to stop pretending and express our raw truth! To give voice to our secret loneliness, our shame, our broken hearts, boredom and brilliant rage! Depression’s called to truth needs to be listened to and understood, not analyzed or medicated away. There is no shame in your exhaustion. We are all exhausted, my love. Slow down today. Allow yourself to rest, deeply. And weep. And breathe. And begin again, now. I say our depression is holy- it contains the seeds of new life

Healing the Mother with Jennifer Arnise

Author, speaker, coach and podcaster Jennifer Arnise absolutely widened my mind through this conversation. I thought I was getting on a call about emotional growth regardless of background; that our wounds are our wounds, and we are all walking each other home. What I came to accept is, while that may be true, in particular, between white and black women—this can only take place AFTER trust is earned and our very different histories are honored, acknowledged, and respected. Even though I listened through this conversation afterwards and considered edits, I did not edit. I want to share a klunky, messy conversation about racial tension, history, reparations and healing— without any shellacked sheen—in the hopes I can encourage women of color and white women everywhere to have these conversations too. I kept the title as is because I want you to know what her mission is and what her book is about, however this episode is about much more.

A Conversation with Michael Frontier

I have spoken to Michael Frontier twice in my life so far and both times I encountered remarkable insights and shifts. I wanted to make his wonderful energy known to my listeners. He also has his own podcast in addition to working as an intuitive healer, and can be found online at www.michaelfrontier.com . He has been with his husband for over two decades so it was fun to test out inner energies regardless of gender with him!

Unworthiness: The Root of Longing

Lots of women that contact me are caught in some form of longing's elusive trap. These days, busy women can "make a meal" on crumbs of text messages and hope he will come around, because they haven't yet taken the time to do the deep inner work. If you find yourself thinking about someone you barely know, or are still caught in a trap of drifting to memories about the one who isn't here now, or even if you fall into mental potholes wishing your spouse would be different, this episode is for you.

On Radical Trust

Do you trust Life? Trust your Source Energy? Trust yourself? We are often called, when things do not progress as anticipated, to trust a realm beyond our understanding. This episode is about some of my experience around that.

Mending While Blending with Naja Hall

Naja Hall is direct, clear and fearlessly telling it like it is about delicate matters.

She is a master stepfamily coach, promoting harmony in blended families. I recently heard her on a podcast and was BLOWN AWAY. I felt grateful when she agreed to offer an interview. (She also restarted with me, despite a limited amount of time, after a glitch caused me to lose the 40 minutes we had just recorded!!) Naja offers deep relief through her research, knowledge and ability to communicate. If you are a stepmom, a divorced Mom, or a single that is open to dating a parent, this episode is for you.

The Wisdom Of Anxiety with Sheryl Paul

Informed by the Jungian depth psychological tradition through her graduate training and particularly the work of Marion Woodman and Robert Johnson, Sheryl Paul is a devotee of the unconscious. She says "our culture tells us that anxiety is the problem but the truth is that it’s the distress flare signaling that it’s time to slow down and discover what needs attention in the interior realms of self. When we shift our mindset from one that sees anxiety as the problem and evidence of brokenness to one that views it as a gift filled with wisdom, everything changes."

Through her books, online courses, private sessions, and blog, Sheryl has guided thousands of people worldwide. Alanis Morissette says Sheryl has been a teacher, a sister, and an inspiring visionary in her life since her twenties. Sheryl has appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, “Good Morning America” and other top media shows, and in publications around the globe. Her new book, "The Wisdom of Anxiety: How Worry and Intrusive Thoughts are Gifts to Help You Heal," will be published by Sounds True this month.

How Do I Spot a Feminine Female?

This episode goes into a description about the attributes of a feminine female. Maybe you'll recognize yourself, or identify some energies and behaviors that are no longer working for you. Maybe some men out there (write me and answer the question I pose for you in this episode, please!) are interested in what to look for. Maybe a feminine energy spouse who has lost touch with her magic and mystery can reclaim it as a result of listening. Call the Google voicemail at 323-999-1536 and let me know what your questions are!

Many blessings to you and thank you for listening.

I receive emails at somethingbetterpodcast@gmail.com and I'd love to hear from you. No one else checks it.
