Triggers and challenges are opportunities to process past trauma and up-level our mode of being. Triggers and challenges are not comfortable, but they come to us at the exact right time when we are ready to move forward. We are all experiencing a collective ‘trigger’ right now with news of the pandemic causing lots of distress for us collectively. This is all happening at the exact right time. In this episode of The Love Cast, Dr. Katy Valentine returns to the podcast to join me for an important conversation about our current events surrounding the virus and how we can respond in a way that brings peace and healing to ourselves and the wider world. Give this episode a careful listen.
What a tumultuous last few days we have experienced. If you’ve been feeling anxious and unsettled about current events surrounding the spread of the Corona virus, that is completely understandable. With that said, I want to encourage you. In the midst of this upheaval, I believe that tremendous and needed change is on the horizon for us. In times like these, our perspective matters. In the uncertainty of our times is an opportunity and a necessity to radically shift our consciousness away from previous conditioned responses of lack and fear, and into healing states of love and peace on a daily and even hourly basis. For many of us, this is a fresh opportunity to put into practice all the new modalities of self care and awareness that we have been integrating into our lives. Simply put, we’ve been preparing for a time such as this. This is no time to shrink back to past patterns of lack and fear. Please give this important episode a careful listen.

1. Notice the non-flu.
2. Appreciate the non-flu.
3. Cultivate the non-flu. (both physically and spiritually)

Author Meg Calvin, author of the newly released book titled: I Am My Own Sanctuary: How A Recovering Holy-Roller Found Healing & Power, is my guest on this episode of The Love Cast. In this interview, Meg talks about how the church leadership culture she was immersed in led to self abandonment and burnout, and also how she recovered and found that she already possessed all that she had been chasing in religious performance. In addition to this, we also discuss how past life trauma and guidance from our ancestors play a part in our current lives and work. This is an episode with lots of gold, so lean in and listen closely.
In this episode of The Love Cast, Jamal & Taylor discuss the recent passing of basketball legend Kobe Bryant and why his death impacted so many people. Hint: the reaction to Kobe’s death had very little to do with Kobe Bryant himself, but with our own unprocessed pain. In addition to this observation, Jamal & Taylor also talk about why Kobe Bryant lived such an influential life. Hint: his real influence had little to do with his ability to put a leather ball into a metal hoop. His true influence went beyond basketball, and if we will pay attention to his example, we can live into this same influence in our own daily lives. Give this episode a careful listen.
