Honestly Lisa

♥Honestly Lisa is a Pu Pu Platter of my life. Once a week I will conduct(formal I know) interviews with everyone from family,, guru's, exboyfriends, childhood friends, thought leaders and maybe even Oprah in search of who I am and what I'm supposed to be. when I grow up. There is salty language, talk of sex , feelings, and spiritual stuff. So you may not want to listen in front of the kids or your coworkers. Love Bites are audio clips based on real conversations from my love life, featuring my friend Robbie Rist, who plays every man who has graced my path. Men Are People Too, where I interview a variety of men; comedians, actors, musicians, artists, writers, computer programmers, yoga guru's, to gain a sometimes hilarious and sometimes serious perspective on how men see love, sex and relationships from their side of the ship. Ladies, you will learn so much about men! Listen in and hear the truth. And sometimes I will just share random musings on life, love, fashion and food or anything else that strike my fancy. And that’s the magpie.

You can make a change.

Lisa gets a lesson in activism.

I always saw Jane as someone completely different, I saw her as a Polyanna. But she’s not a Polyanna, she never was. Don’t judge a Polyanna by her cover. The more I do this podcast, the more I learn that my perception of people or the stories I have perceived of people, are actually completely biased and what I want them to be. But the people themselves are actually so much better!

WARNING: Lisa gets hypnotized

 

“My evil genius Procrastination has whispered me to tarry 'til a more convenient season.” Mary Todd Lincoln #honestlylisa 

 

Carmen Isais took me on the Journey, Carmen is a Professional Life Coach, Facilitator & Trainer specializing in Integrative Coaching & Coaching Mentorship. There is more info about Carmen below.

 

So here’s the deal, I didn’t bawk like a chicken or moo like a cow! That would have been easier and less revealing.

 

Also, when I listened back, I noticed my voice actually shifted while I was hypnotized. I was very unsure whether I wanted to release this episode because it’s makes me feel so vulnerable, but here it is. Sorry dad.

 

It felt more like a super relaxed trance state where new pathways revealed a part of my brain that I had closed off, taped off with duct tape, to stories from my past that I have held onto my whole life.  Stories I twisted with age into the unconscious reasons to why I hold myself back in life by procrastinating....PLAYING IT SMALL.  

 

PLAYING IT SMALL!

 

Stories I hold on to, like old sexy underwear at the bottom of my underwear drawer that I have not seen in 20 years and will never ever wear, but I let just hang out and take space. That was a shitty analogy! Like a takeout menu you still have even though the restaurant has closed 20 years ago that you find in a junk drawer and shove back into the junk drawer knowing damn well it’s of no use.  Fuck it! I have no analogies… just listen.

 

It’s not writer’s block! It’s procrastination!

 

Hi. my name is Lisa and I am a lifelong PROCRASTINATOR.

On the outside looking in, Nikki looked to me like she has it all! And I wanted to know from Nikki why and if she could help get me get it all, relationship, business, crazy ass confidence and drive. Or just confidence.

I said outloud on the podcast twice that I have been thinking about marriage again. So if you see my boyfriend don’t tell him I said that. Don’t worry. He does not read the show notes or read my blog or listen to my podcast. Honestly he doesn’t know about Honestly Lisa and I plan to keep it that way.

Nikki has found her purpose in life, and that purpose is business! Nikki is here to pursue business, to learn it, and to teach it to you!

 

Today I got to chat with the awesome Nikki Tanyika Lewis about everything from sheep and our love of Target, to becoming a successful entrepreneur.

 

Check out Nikki’s Biz Underdog to Topdog blog and podcast here!

Find Nikki's Facebook page here.

Nikki has provided a freebie sample of her book The Ultimate Food Business Starter Guide, so  check it out! If you want more, the ebook is available here (she even has an audiobook version available if you don’t feel like reading).

Show Notes: 

Melody is a soul awakening alchemist, reality up-grader, and mermaid.

Please go check out Melody Park Shin's Facebook group here!

Melody and I discussed this Hawaiian prayer, so here it is as promised!

Ho'O'pono'pono is an ancient Hawaiian prayer of forgiveness, love, and healing.

There are four phrases that are used as a prayer or declaration.

You must first quiet your mind and focus on yourself and being present in your heart.

The Ho'O'pono'pono phrases are used to assist in self-cleansing. 

The first phrase is "I am sorry", you apologize for whatever you may have knowingly or unknowingly contributed to this situation.

"Please forgive me", you acknowledge that on some level you have contributed to the situation simply because it exists in your frame of reality. You are taking responsibility for the situation. 

"Thank you", you are expressing gratitude and offering thanks to your true self.

"I love you", you are offering these words to your true self as well as the true nature/self of the other person or the situation.

These phrases are meant to acknowledge, forgive, and offer love to a situation or person that is concerning you.

 "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." Sir Isaac Newton's third law of motion
