The Benefits of Blue Light Blocking Glasses with Andy Mant

May 20, 2020 • 57m

In this episode, we’re excited to be joined by Andy Mant, the founder of BLUblox — an Australian-based blue light blocking glasses company that is known to have the world’s most advanced blue light glasses! What we love about Andy’s story is that his company was built from a personal need. He was suffering from terrible sleep, felt lethargic all the time, and was in the worst physical shape of his life. When he discovered that blue light emitted from our screens could be the cause of many of the issues he was facing, he set out to find the perfect blue light blocking glasses — but, they just weren’t out there. They weren’t actually blocking the correct frequencies. So the only solution, of course, was to create his own product! Now his company, BLUblox, is touting lenses that are actually backed by science and have years of research to show for it.   We really hope you all tune in to learn more about this incredible technology and Andy’s journey! We really get into the benefits of blocking out blue light, how different kinds of light impact us both short term and long term, some of the common light sensitivity issues many people face (but might not even know it), how light impacts our circadian rhythm, and the profound effect that blocking blue light throughout our day can have on our health.   IGNTD Specials: IGNTD Live Online Groups (Free for 14 Days) IGNTD Subscription ($43 per month & 30 days of Live Groups included) Family SOS Program   Topics Discussed: [:01] About our new IGNTD Family SOS Program.

Somatic Intelligence: Moving Life Through the Body with Chen Lizra

April 24, 2019 • 67m

We’re talking about the body today — specifically embodying your psyche, your emotional experiences, and how to develop something that our guest, Chen Lizra, calls “somatic intelligence.”   Often, when we talk about the body and embodiment we think of just the physical body — but it’s so beyond that. In today’s conversation, Chen helps us understand what it means to be fully embodied — in your spirit, your soul; all aspects of who you are. Being fully embodied means feeling fully comfortable in your own skin. Chen’s work centers around the body; helping others connect with their bodies, heal, and step into their full power through the process of releasing and reprogramming stuck energy, emotional blocks, and behavioral patterns.   In today’s episode, Chen speaks all about her journey with discovering somatic intelligence and how she got to where she is today; what somatic intelligence is and the five elements that make it up; Chen’s tip on how to feel in your body and explore your emotions, and where to learn more about somatic intelligence!   Topics Discussed: [:28] About today’s episode. [1:35] Sharing a review of the week! [2:49] Sophie shares a quote about embodiment. [3:03] What is embodiment? [16:28] Relationship tip of the week. [22:28] The conversation portion of the podcast. [23:14] Chen introduces herself. [23:40] What is somatic intelligence? [26:26] The first three (out of five) elements that make up somatic intelligence: elegance, intention, and tempo. [32:07] Talking the power of enjoyment, the importance of space, and attunement and somatic work. [35:35] Chen explains the last two elements that make up somatic intelligence: sabrosura and mystery. [37:15] The work and power of attunement and the difference between thinking and feeling. [40:50] Chen’s tips for how to feel in your body. [41:37] The importance of feeling and exploring those emotions and Chen’s tips on how to approach this. [47:36] Ways to learn more about somatic intelligence, Chen’s retreats, and how to work with her. [50:07] Chen’s journey that got her to where she is today and how she came to discover somatic intelligence. [59:38] The best advice Chen has ever received. [1:00:14] Chen’s proudest moment to-date. [1:00:49] Chen’s hardest moment to-date. [1:01:57] Chen’s daily self-care rituals. [1:03:18] What ignites Chen?   Relationship Tip of the Week If you’re feeling off or disconnected in your body sometimes the medicine is in moving past that discomfort. Sometimes you can get so in your head that you feel you must be comfortable in your body in order to connect physically with your partner — but that’s not true. You need to flip that script. Connecting physically with your partner can actually help you become comfortable with your body. That, in itself, can be the practice that will lead you to attunement and bring you into your body.   Mentioned in this Episode: Yoga Girls (Reality TV Show) IGNTD episode: “Going Deep: Body Image and How We View Ourselves” Sophie’s Spotify Chen Lizra’s TEDx Talk: “The Power of Seduction in Our Everyday Lives” The Power of Enjoyment Retreat The Power of Sabrosura Retreat Power of Somatic Intelligence (Chen’s website)   Find out more about IGNTD: IGNTD.com IGNTD.libysn.com   Subscribe to the Podcast iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify   Follow us on Social Media!

Honest Exploration: The Foundation of Addiction Recovery

May 03, 2019 • 21m

Today we’re talking about some of the biggest principles that IGNTD Recovery operates under. Whether you’ve read The Abstinence Myth or not, there are three main principles that I’ve put together to create the basis of what my approach to addiction recovery is. These three principles are 1) honest exploration, 2) radical acceptance, and 3) individualized transformation.   Just like building a house or starting a new relationship, if your foundation is shaky, then even the most beautiful construction isn’t going to matter because everything is going to crumble down the line. So that’s why today I want to discuss with you the first of these three principles: honest exploration — and why it is the key to building a solid foundation for the rest of your recovery on.   Topics Discussed: [2:40] About today’s topic: honest exploration. [6:22] The first component to doing honest exploration well: telling the story. [7:43] About one of the clients who struggled in their relationship for eight years, and how honest exploration provided the much-needed solution. [15:22] The second component after telling the story: the belief. [18:34] The importance of honest exploration. [18:55] Let me know: What stories have existed in your life for years or decades that you can go back and do a real, honest exploration of? I want you to understand the perspective that these stories have left you with.   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery (Register and join the free workshop!)

The Biology of Belief: The Intersection of Consciousness and Matter with Bruce Lipton

June 05, 2019 • 108m

In this episode, we’re kicking off a new format to the IGNTD Relationships podcast! Each month we will be exploring a new theme with various guests and at the end of the month we’ll wrap it all up with our key findings through a ‘Going Deep’ episode. This month, the theme we will be exploring is our relationship between our biology, body, and physical nature with our spirituality and psychology.   To start things off this month, we’re interviewing Bruce Lipton! Bruce is an internationally recognized leader in bridging the gap between science and spirituality. He is a stem cell biologist and author of the best-selling book, The Biology of Belief. His cutting-edge research and teachings uncover the missing connections between psychology, spirituality, and biology.   In today’s episode, Bruce gives many key insights from several of his books, including The Biology of Belief and The Honeymoon Effect. He talks about how to deprogram yourself from feeling stuck and reprogram yourself for success and happiness, the power of perspective, where our negative behaviors or traits come from and how they manifest in our children, social norms and what to do when confronted with a tough decision, how to find freedom from fear, the science of epigenetics, and the benefits of the placebo effect!   Bruce’s work is incredibly fascinated and we are so excited for you all to listen in to this week’s episode!   Topics Discussed: [:29] Sophie and I give an announcement about a reformatting of our shows. [2:00] About today’s episode with Bruce Lipton! [2:29] Sophie reads a review from our fan of the week! [3:49] I read a quote from Bruce’s book, The Biology of Belief, on relationships and our key takeaways from it. [7:41] How NOT to have a sh*tty day. [17:34] Screenshot this podcast and share your favorite quote or takeaways with us and Bruce! [19:49] The conversation portion of the podcast! [20:45] The parallels between Sophie’s and my relationship and Bruce’s relationship with his partner; and about his book, The Honeymoon Effect. [25:00] Sophie joins the conversation! [29:24] Bruce and I discuss the idea from early on in his book about feeling stuck and being resolved to pain and how it is possible to deprogram yourself from that belief, which then allows the biology of your body to follow suit and lead you into a life you’re content with. [36:15] Discussing the power of perspective, and how Bruce went from talking the talk to walking the walk. [45:48] We ask Bruce for his insights on our son, Leo’s, negative behaviors, and where they might come from. He also gives general advice to parents on how to create a better environment for your children. [1:00:18] Once Bruce discovered he could change his programming, what are some of the steps he took in his life that allowed him to embody his current mentality and enter into the relationship he has with his wife. [1:05:32] Bruce speaks about social norms and what to do when confronted with making a decision. [1:14:07] The science behind epigenetics and the “nocebo” effect! [1:19:48] The profound benefits of the placebo effect. [1:28:38] Bruce retells his discovery of freedom from fear and gives advice on how others can do the same. [1:32:36] What is the best advice Bruce has ever received? [1:35:11] What is Bruce’s proudest moment to-date? [1:38:05] What has been one of Bruce’s most difficult moments? [1:39:12] What are Bruce’s self-care practices? [1:40:36] What gets Bruce ignited? [1:42:50] We thank Bruce for joining us this episode! [1:45:52] Bruce gives his thoughts on Marianne Williamson.   Mentioned in this Episode: Bruce Lipton The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles, by Bruce H.

The Lie of the Addiction Gene

April 26, 2019 • 32m

Recently, we interviewed Bruce Lipton (who wrote one of my favorite books, The Biology of Belief) on the IGNTD Relationships podcast. But, that’s not coming out for a little while, so I’ve decided to record for you a few of my insights and key takeaways from the lessons in his book; specifically relevant to addiction, mental health, and internal struggles.   I absolutely love the concepts in The Biology of Belief. The lessons on why you are not your negative belief; how your genetics are not the single influencer in making up who you are; and how you can change your reality if you change your perception are all so powerful. I hope you’ll join me today to learn more about Bruce Lipton’s work and gain some valuable insight around addiction and mental health!   Topics Discussed: [2:44] About today’s episode and the upcoming relationships podcast with Bruce Lipton. [4:07] What I love about The Biology of Belief and Bruce Lipton. [5:50] One of my biggest takeaways from The Biology of Belief. [13:38] Why there is no such thing as the “addictive gene,” how the interaction between biology and environment creates who we are, and what epigenetic research has revealed. [19:35] The environmental influences that can impact who are you — especially around addiction. [21:33] About a client I used to have with several diagnoses, who many believed it was in her genetics and she could not get better. [22:43] Unlike other animals, we can impact our own perspective and beliefs in the world. That’s powerful. [25:00] Why you are not your negative belief. [28:00] What if you were able to switch your negative beliefs into beliefs that serve you in terms of where you want to go?   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery (Register and join the free workshop!)

Unpopular Opinion: Addiction and Drugs

April 12, 2019 • 27m

Today I want to discuss with you all some of the ways I’m seeing the current addiction treatment system failing. It’s not an easy or popular conversation to have — but I think we’re failing people left and right here, and the overdose rates are continuing to go up. With a system that has billions of dollars funding it annually, you would hope that it chips away at the problem — but the reality is that we’re not seeing any improvement at all.   What we really need to do is take a different approach; a radical transformation for how we look at and approach the problem of addiction treatment. We need to completely rethink our baseline beliefs about what’s going on (such as the criminalization of drugs and the idea that drugs are inherently bad). I hope you’ll join me today to dive deeper into this topic and try looking at addiction from a different perspective.   Topics Discussed: [2:41] Welcome to today’s podcast! [3:12] About today’s topic. [3:53] Let me know what has resonated with you from today’s episode by taking a screenshot, tagging me, and letting me know! [4:30] The current addiction treatment system and why it’s not working. [13:52] Why we need to consider, as a whole, a complete radical transformation of how we look at ‘addicts’ and addiction treatment. [16:15] We need to completely rethink our baseline beliefs, starting with the criminalization of drugs and the idea that drugs are inherently bad so that we can start addressing the real problem. [24:04] How we can start looking at this all from a different angle and what that could mean for the future of the addiction treatment system.   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery (Register and join the free workshop!)

How to Clear Out Space in Your Life

August 16, 2019 • 15m

Today we’re going through clearing space. Right now, in the IGNTD household, we’re super busy with being in the process of buying our first house. As exciting as it is, I had no idea what kinds of challenges it would bring along! And here’s the thing about life: we’re constantly recycling and re-figuring out what we have to do to keep our head up above the water. So today, I want to talk with you about how to clear out space in your life! Because, if you make the tough decisions and clear out the things in your life that are causing the most stress, pressure, and noise in your life, you will be making space for new, incredible opportunities.   Topics Discussed: [:43] What we’re currently up to at the IGNTD household! [2:27] What I’m going to break down for you today. [4:25] What happens when you first clear out your space. [7:14] How we cleared out space recently. [9:00] Why you haven’t had the time to clear out your space, how to make the time, and the benefits I have received from clearing my space. [11:00] Why clearing your space is so valuable. [12:05] My question for you: How much of what’s going on in your life is happening because you’re not clearing your space? [12:51] My exercise for you: Write down all of the things that are creating the most stress, pressure, and noise in your life right now. When you’re done with that list, you have your mission. Figure out how much you can clear and how much space you can create so you can grow in your life and get to a new and better place!

Why Ignorance is NOT Bliss

July 19, 2019 • 22m

Today I’m here to talk about a topic that came out of a client session I had about a year ago. In this session, my client was really struggling about what to do next. He was faced with the knowledge that as he continued doing the work he needed to do, he further understood the gap in his knowledge. Think of the Aristotle quote: “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.” For some people, this concept can be really scary! I believe that this fear actually stems from another common saying that goes: “Ignorance is bliss.” The idea is that if you don’t know what you don’t know, you will be happy. But I think that that is completely backward. To me, the idea that knowledge is a bottomless pit represents ultimate freedom in life! So, what I want to do today is to present three points to you about the way this concept relates to life, how it relates to mental health and recovery, and the way it relates to the relationships that you have — and ultimately, explain why ignorance is NOT bliss.   Topics Discussed: [:40] About today’s episode. [4:54] How this concept relates to life. [7:30] Where we tend to develop a fear of knowledge, supported by the phrase, “Ignorance is bliss.” [7:50] Why ignorance is NOT bliss. [10:48] How this concept relates to mental health and recovery. [13:35] How this concept relates to our relationships in life. [15:36] How radical transparency can fix everything (with regards to this relationship portion). [16:30] Summarizing the key takeaways for this week’s episode. [20:38] Be sure to screenshot this podcast, DM me or share it on social media, and let me know what resonated the most with you in this episode! We also would appreciate a 5-star review on iTunes (and we might even read it on Wednesday’s episode)!   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery (Register and join the free workshop!)

Co-Dependency: What It Is, Why It Exists, and How We Can Overcome It

October 04, 2019 • 22m

Today, we’re talking about co-dependency. In my field of work, co-dependency shows up a lot. I have this client, whom we’ll call Melissa (though that is not her real name), who was really struggling and by the time she came to me, she was diagnosed with six different clinical diagnoses. And her mom was someone that many would consider overbearing or a co-dependent. Whenever Melissa would come into my clinic to visit me, her mother would bombard her with constant calls, updates, and emails.   But, the thing is, I don’t think Melissa’s mom was ‘a co-dependent’; I think she was acting co-dependently. Whether this is semantic to you or you have been that family member who has been called co-dependent, I highly recommend that you stay tuned in for this one as we dive deeper into what it means to be co-dependent, why these behavioral patterns exist at all, and how we can help others to overcome and move past this co-dependent behaviors and mindset.   Topics Discussed: [:42] About today’s topic: co-dependency, and a story about a client of mine. [2:35] More about this term, ‘co-dependent.’ [3:22] My perspective on Melissa’s ‘co-dependent’ mom. [3:51] The three components I’m going to break down in this episode (on co-dependency): what does it even mean to say somebody is co-dependent? Why do these behavioral patterns exist? And how do we help others overcome and get past these co-dependent behaviors? [4:10] How co-dependency is defined and how it first came about. [9:40] Why do these co-dependency behavioral patterns exist? [13:24] How we “cured” Melissa’s mom of her co-dependent behaviors, and why it is incredibly important that we keep it sub-clinical rather than a full-on, clinical disorder. [15:55] How do we measure dysfunction in a couple or a pair of people where this co-dependent pattern of behavior works well for them? [17:04] In Melissa’s and her mother’s story, did co-dependency actually end up serving them? [18:49] What is important to know if you’re struggling or you know someone who is struggling. [20:10] If this was helpful for you or somebody you know, take a screenshot of this podcast, share it on social media, tag me, and let me know how it resonated for you!   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery (Register and join the free workshop!)

How to Not Let Imposter Syndrome Hold You Back From Creating the Life That You Want!

October 18, 2019 • 18m

In today’s episode, I’m bringing you something a little new — a recording from one of our live sessions for our IGNTD VIP members! This particular recording and conversation are focusing on the concept of credibility and what makes us credible by breaking it down into three pieces: where we get our concept of what is credible vs. what isn’t, what happens when we step into that place and the concept of imposter syndrome, and through understanding these pieces, how we can shape the life that you want.   This episode is especially beneficial for anybody who’s been struggling with the problem of not really knowing what they want out of life. These three basic principles — credibility, the imposter syndrome, and the work of creating the life that you want — are key in understanding how to get where you’re trying to go, despite the programming you’ve had earlier on in life.   Topics Discussed: [:35] About today’s episode. [2:32] The start of the recording from my live session for our IGNTD VIP members. [4:00] Why our chase for credibility is often one of the main reasons why we end up getting to outcomes and figuring out that maybe they weren’t the ones we were going after, after all. [4:52] Where we get our concept of what is credible vs. what isn’t. [8:34] My experience with imposter syndrome and how it relates to our concept of credibility. [11:18] How do we create the life that we want in the face of all these challenges (such as imposter syndrome and our ideas of credibility and what we want are largely influenced by our past?) [13:17] My homework for you: find the life that you want. [16:21] This took me 10 years to figure out! My hope for you is that by just listening to this episode, I’ve created a shortcut for you to get there sooner than I did. If you could share the results you’ve had from this episode, I’d love to hear about it! Screenshot this episode, share your results with me on Instagram, and I’ll reshare them for others to be inspired by you as well.   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery (Register and join the free workshop!)

Going Deep: Sexuality, Intimacy & MDMA

December 25, 2019 • 104m

This episode marks the end of our month on sexuality and intimacy! The conversations this past month have been incredible and have truly informed our thinking about sexuality and intimacy. We’ve grown and learned so much, and we hope you have too!   Today, we will be ‘Going Deep’ and sharing our own lessons and experiences with sexuality and intimacy. We talk about challenging our growth edges as a couple, how our past sexual experiences have informed us, what attraction is to us, and the importance of setting boundaries. We take you back to the beginning of our relationship and what that looked like, share stories of our past, and talk about what keeps us feeling safe and stable in our relationship even when we’re pushing our comfort zones. We also talk about how you can better your own relationship — both sexually and intimate-wise — and what kinds of risks, within reason, you can take as a couple to open up your hearts to new experiences (even ones that feel a little scary!)   IGNTD Specials: 21-Day Habit Reset Challenge   Topics Discussed: [:35] About today’s episode! [1:29] Reading our review of the week! [2:25] Reflecting on this month’s episodes. [3:11] Be sure to share these past episodes on social media or with friends and family!

[10:48] Starting at the beginning of our journey together as a couple, we take a look at both of our experiences and relationship with sexuality and intimacy.

[23:25] Sophie tells the rest of the story of her traumatic relationship with her ex. [27:25] Taking a look at the very beginning of our relationship and the start of our experiences with becoming more connected and sexually intimate. [34:31] How the conversation of taking MDMA came up for us and our own experiences with doing it in the past. [40:50] The history of MDMA and the usage of it. [42:46] Why we ended up taking MDMA together as a couple. [47:26] What our first time doing MDMA together was like and how MDMA affects you. [53:34] The fascinating research behind MDMA that shows it can help couples and those with PTSD. [1:01:35] How often we use MDMA together. [1:03:56] The second element of us using MDMA: our opening up of our sexuality and intimacy, and sharing more details of our first experience with taking MDMA together. [1:08:54] Our journey with discovering ourselves, the progression of our relationship, and some of the ‘rules’ that keep us feeling stable and safe in our relationship. [1:12:37] Sophie opens up about discovering her attraction to women. [1:15:25] The story of our threesome and the subsequent creation of our third ‘rule.’ [1:24:24] Remember: MDMA is a tool. Know your body, know your limits, and do it just with your partner at home for the first time. [1:29:54] Post-MDMA: what the results of the work we do looks like once we’re sober. [1:35:58] Choosing each other is a choice. You’ve got to continue to do the work to keep the passion alive in your relationship! [1:38:24] Thank you so much for being a part of our story!

Relationships, Masculinity, and Getting Honest With Yourself with John Kim, The Angry Therapist

March 04, 2020 • 68m

We’re in mental health and wellness month! We’re so excited to jump into today’s episode with you because we have on a very special guest today — the Angry Therapist! Seriously, that’s what he’s known as! John Kim’s no BS way of helping men and women find more happiness in their relationships and more purpose in their lives is so powerful. In his work, he challenges the conventions of what you think your therapist can do. He humanizes himself and shows up authentically and transparently for the world to see, which has led him to become a pioneer in the field of self-help.   In his newest book, I Used to Be a Miserable F*ck, John talks about his transition from misery to meaning. He shares his entire internal process from reflection to pain to courage and a rebirth. His book acts as a guide for men and speaks about the dos and don’ts for stepping into manhood, which he defines by transparency and strength of character — not a six-pack or a corner office.   We talk about so many different topics with John today and we get into some really deep topics that we’re sure you’ll really love! We discuss his career and how the moniker of ‘the Angry Therapist’ came to be, his own journey of self-discovery and personal exploration with manhood, the concept of toxic masculinity and how it is shifting in today’s society, current dating culture and the changing landscape, and so much more. We can’t wait for you all to tune in!   IGNTD Specials: Free IGNTD Recovery Workshop New IGNTD Recovery Live Online Support Groups   Topics Discussed: [:35] About today’s episode and special guest. [1:30] Sharing our review of the week! [3:16] Sophie shares a fantastic quote from our guest, John Kim. [5:35] More about today’s guest. [6:00] About our online recovery resources. [8:22] The conversation portion of the podcast. [9:06] Welcoming John Kim on to the podcast! [9:36] About John’s moniker, the Angry Therapist, and how it came to be. [10:32] John speaks about the inner-judgment and resistance he faced when it came to adding “f*ck” to his book title. [12:41] John speaks about his work and his personal exploration with masculinity. [14:27] What John’s book, I Used to Be a Miserable F*ck, is about. [16:20] Reflecting on the confusing path of what it means to be a man in today’s day and age. [17:26] What is toxic masculinity? And where does it come from? [22:18] What’s the solution to toxic masculinity if there is one? [23:38] John speaks about how he’s seeing this toxic masculinity dynamic shifting for the better. [26:22] Telling a quick funny story about Sophie’s lack of celebrity knowledge. [28:47] What is ‘famous’ anymore? [30:36] How does John feel about the documentation of his journey and the various platforms he has used to share it? [32:05] John shares how his idea of what a therapist has evolved over time. [35:55] John speaks about the emergence of coaching and why he started ‘journey coaching.’ [37:59] Talking about how we first met, the idea of getting married too soon, and others’ struggles with being single. [39:21] About John’s next book: Single on Purpose. [39:41] Discussing dating culture and the changing landscape of what it means to be a man. [43:26] Self-partnering and learning how to date ‘better.’ [45:56] How we define chemistry. [48:14] What should you look for in a relationship and how to approach them with a more level-head. [51:13] Discussing the role men play in a relationship and how that is changing. [55:42] The best advice John has ever received. [56:25] What has been John’s proudest moment to-date? [57:25] What has been one of John’s hardest moments to-date? [58:26] How radical transparency saved our relationship. [1:03:54] John speaks about the self-care that he puts in place so that he can show up as his best self every day. [1:05:35] What ignites John? [1:06:02] Thanking John for joining us today.

Why Focusing on the Positive is a Decision

September 13, 2019 • 16m

This week I’m here for a really simple — yet, important — topic. This is something that I deal with, with many of my clients — and that is, making the decision to focus on the positive.   When I was at my lowest point, I considered myself a realist. I was proud of the fact that I saw things exactly as they were. And for me, at the time, that meant a pretty strong existential crisis. My whole world was focused on these dark topics with depressing themes, which I considered at the time to be a very realistic way to view the world.   Here’s the thing: I now know that what I considered a realistic and objective view of the world was not necessarily A) as valuable as I thought it was, and B) as honest and objective as I thought it was. So that’s what I really want to talk about with you all today: making the decision of where you put your focus on. Life will always have both positive and negative aspects, so where you put your focus makes all the difference.   Topics Discussed: [:01] About upcoming IGNTD events and offerings for September’s recovery month! [1:10] About this week’s episode. [1:48] My past struggle with being a ‘realist’; not focusing on the positive. [3:55] Here’s the thing: my past view of the world was not as realistic as I thought it was. [4:18] The problem with our search for objectivity and truth. [9:50] An important exercise for you all to begin focusing on the positives. [10:40] Life has both aspects: the positives and the negatives. Here’s what we have to get good at: making the decision to focus on the positive. [11:38] Here’s what happens when you begin working on this exercise. [12:01] The qualities of a person who focuses on the positive. [12:39] My question for you: what is it you want? Do you want to be right? Or do you want to be happy? [13:31] How focusing on the positive has helped me in my own life.   Mentioned in this Episode: IGNTD Recovery Month Promotions: [ALL MONTH LONG]: IGNTD Hero Nohab Reset Program Scholarships Application We are giving away 10 scholarships to our “Nohab” Reset Program that gives you full-year access to the course that will help you discover your path to true success, identify your subconscious barriers, and reset your subconscious scripts.

In this episode, we’re wrapping up gratitude month with a Going Deep episode! It’s been quite a month and we hope you have all tuned in to each and every episode leading up to this wrap-up!   Today we’re having an amazing discussion to discuss everything we’ve learned. From Victoria and Tamal Dodge from The Yoga Plate teaching us about practicing gratitude over the holidays, to Ben and Laura of Jonas Paul Eyewear who shared the importance of giving back to those in need, and of course, Cammy and Cologne of Show Me Your Mumu in finding things to be grateful for each and every day. We also explore and share our own methods of practicing gratitude and provide some further insights on how you can embrace gratitude no matter what your life looks like.   We hope you’ll join us for wrapping up gratitude month!   Topics Discussed: [:30] About today’s episode. [1:02] Reading our review of the week! [2:34] Reflecting on our recent IGNTD Glow Annual Event. [3:47] Sophie reads two fantastic quotes on how to practice gratitude. [7:00] How having a gratitude list can completely realign your focus. [8:41] How the negative things that happen in life are often gifts!

Consciously Coupling Panel with Ryan Weiss, Krista Williams, and Laticia Rolle

December 11, 2019 • 86m

You’ve been asking for an episode on dating… and now we’re delivering! Today’s episode is going to cover all aspects of dating — from navigating the dating scene when you’re single to shaking things up when you’re in a long-term relationship.   And instead of our usual ‘conversation portion’ of the podcast, we’re sharing a recording from a recent panel we did at Floravere, a local bridal shop. And what is so interesting about this recording is that we got to do it some of our really great friends who are all at different stages of dating! There’s Laticia Rolle who’s single (and was literally going on a date right after the panel), Krista Williams who’s engaged, Ryan Weiss who is with a long-term partner… and then, of course, there’s us!   In this panel, we talk about many of the current, modern-day realities of dating. We talk about what it’s like to date, how to be in a coupleship in this world, how to attract what you need in a relationship, how to stay motivated about dating when you’re single and going on a ton of dates, and more! We know you’ll love this one!   Topics Discussed: [:29] About today’s special episode! [2:25] Reading our review of the week. [4:00] Healing comes in waves. It’s important to trust the process. [8:03] Sophie reads her quote of the day from the book, Women Who Run With the Wolves. [9:11] The importance of checking in with yourself and putting in the work for your relationships and personal growth. [15:09] Today’s ‘panel portion’ of the podcast! [16:57] Krista introduces herself first, speaks about what people know her for, and gives the lowdown on her experience with relationships. [18:22] Ryan introduces himself, speaks about the work that he does, and shares his experience with relationships. [20:14] Laticia introduces herself, speaks about what she does, and shares her current experience with relationships. [22:02] Sophie gives a quick introduction to herself! [23:45] Talking modern-day dating, meeting people, and dating apps! [29:30] How do you stay motivated when it comes to dating? [31:10] How to attract what you actually need in a relationship rather than what you think you want. [39:05] Why nobody can make you whole through a relationship. [41:49] The importance of surrounding ourselves with people who support our growth. [47:57] Why you need to be confident, own your power, and have no shame in celebrating the things you’re really good at it! [54:30] Remember: there’s no limit to your abundance! [59:19] Sophie speaks about her and Adi’s relationship and shares what their up and downs bring! [1:02:22] Why you shouldn’t be scared of fights in a relationship. [1:05:02] What is the purpose of a relationship? [1:09:35] The start of something new: ‘IGNTD Singles’ events! [1:11:35] Wrapping up the panel, each of the panelists leaves the audience with one last tip on the theme of consciously coupling! [1:23:26] Adi closes out the panel.   Mentioned in this Episode: Floravere The Abstinence Myth, by Adi Jaffe Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes Krista Williams Almost 30 Podcast Ryan Weiss Laticia Rolle Girl, We Got This with Laticia Lee Podcast Danielle LaPorte Abraham-Hicks Nine Inch Nails Onsite Foundation   Find out more about IGNTD: IGNTD.com IGNTD.libysn.com   Subscribe to the Podcast iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify   Follow us on Social Media!
