Hilary Powers has an incredible story of redemption to share. She wrote a memoir called Peanuts to Percocet about how her childhood as a big earner in voice over and acting cast a shadow over her life that she got out from under- sparking, shining, and spreading hope. She lived the prayer that this podcast was named for: “this or something better” and through surrender of what she could not change and exerting control over what was hers to discard, she gave up the fantasy and entered her dream. #somethingbetterpodcast #happynewyear #nevertoolate #dontgiveup #trust
I will not ever, ever tire of listener questions. Keep 'em coming, listeners!! This week I weigh in on a few that I find come regularly.
Thanks for letting me be a part of your process!
This week I responded to a few listeners by offering a single's perspective, a married perspective, and a human being perspective...because regardless of whether or not you're in a relationship, we are all in an ever evolving human experience.
The truth is, there is nowhere to quickly "get to" in order to be "okay". It's an illusion, and everywhere you look (if you live in a city with billboards or watch TV) you'll be told there is a place at which you have to arrive, a thing you have to buy, a person you "neeeeeed" to know in order to be okay. However, the world is changing. PROCESS really is being embraced by our society, little by little. My mission here is to get you to fill the void spiritually and enter into a student orientation to yourself and your interactions, (which breeds consciousness) and fall in love with your own life. Wayne Dyer taught "NOWHERE" can also be seen as NOW HERE. So here's to "getting nowhere" to reframe it into NOW HERE- you might find yourself trusting the process!!
Spoiler Alert: NO! NO!!! NO!!! Please listen to this if you are committed to expressing your feminine energy in romantic relationship, but keep telling yourself it is okay to contact him. If you want to be the feminine energy in a symbiotic, hot, energetically orderly romantic relationship, you have GOT TO avert your eyes away from him and keep them on the horizon and your own heart's desires. He literally will not know what hit him, and he'll think you just arrived from Venus. Pretty much because you will.
Put your phone down, ladies. I know it feels panicky and daunting to let go, but I'm here for you. So is my guest and very dear friend Christy. Don't miss our real-life get together with microphones!
Are you single and moving through the holidays going "seriously? this is my life?" I know how you feel.
Treat yourself well. This week you get permission from me to enjoy the holidays in the way it works for you. You don't have to be thrilled about it.
My Eyes So Soft
Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly.
Let it cut more deeply.
Let it ferment and season you
as few human ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight
has made my eyes so soft,
my voice so tender,
my need of God,
so absolutely clear.
