Ep 36: React LESS

Reacting a human response. We take in information and we respond. Our emotions respond. Our thoughts respond. Our words and actions respond. And sometimes responding is appropriate. But other times, and perhaps most of the time, our responses come from a place of reactivity rather than true awareness. In this week’s episode, Elena is exploring the practice of equanimity, or to react less, as a way to pause first and then respond from a place of inner calm.

Ep 34: When Your Story Gets the Best of You

Our thoughts create our reality. The question is, what thoughts do you tell yourself? Even the most practiced “thought catcher” has moments of being human, when a story or thought triggers us.

Ep 33: Stop Waiting

Many of us are skilled waiters. We wait for the perfect conditions. For all the details to be fully fleshed out. Maybe you’ve experienced this? You wait until we have a dotted line to sign before giving yourself permission to celebrate something. In this week’s episode, Elena is sharing why that way of life, of holding yourself hostage to certainty, keeps us in a waiting pattern and why it is time to stop waiting and start living. Start celebrating.

Ep 31: You Have an Inner Guide

Do you believe that you have an inner guide? A source of inner knowing? Many of us have had moments of visceral knowing, or a gut feeling. In many circumstances we don’t trust those voices. Or, we are moving so quickly through our lives, that we never stop to consider that we have a wellspring of guidance and knowing within us. In this week’s episode Elena is exploring the idea of knowing with certainty, like you know that the sun rises each day, that you have an inner guide.

Ep 30: Cultivate Delight

Delight is everywhere. But in a world where we scan through our surroundings and days like we scan our social media feeds, our ability to recognize delight gets lost.

In this week’s episode, Elena is sharing why delight is so important and three ways to connect to what delights you. Because delight is not just for children, we can choose to experience it every single day.

Ep 29: Be More, Do Less

We are really good at doing. Doing our work. Doing things for others. It makes sense. Doing is easy, there are often instructions and steps to do something. But sometimes even the best intended doing, can become rote and mechanic. Being and becoming on the other hand, are challenging because they ask us to FEEL, and can look different on any given day. In this week’s episode Elena explores the idea of embodiment and the practice of BEING as a way to express and nurture our truest self.

Ep 28: Choose Ease over Force

Find ease. Maybe you’ve heard this before? Maybe you’ve wondered what it really means  or looks like?

In this week’s episode, Elena shares a story that illustrates the difference between when you choose ease over force. You’ll want to listen to this episode if you have been struggling with a project or task and not making any progress.

Ep 27: Real Talk about Time

There isn’t enough time. We hear it, literally, all the time. And it makes sense when we spend our days doing, doing, doing. What if there is another way? What if we could replace our scarcity mindset around time to believe that how we use our time is a choice? In this week’s episode, Elena invites us to consider what it would take to make time our ally. To consider that how we spend our time can be a “I get to” instead of an “I have to.”
