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.

I kind of feel naked with a bloated belly in this episode.

I was so lost in my own negativity spiral when I recorded this episode.

Then I found Zofie and Relax Me Happy and my perspective has really shifted. Maybe I was not ready or maybe I did not have the right teacher.

I know it sounds simple, but since then I have been so focused on ye old proverbial phrase “glass half full”.

Anyhow, this is a very honest interview with Karly Nimmo, who is so lovable, honest and smart and makes you feel like her instant best friend.

I feel like she and I are spiritual/podcasting soul sister and we both also have voice over careers!

I dream of having a podcast with Karly! And going on retreats with her in Thailand. Or maybe Karly and I meet in Thailand every 6 months and record 20 episodes at a time! Dreamy!

Meet Karly Nimmo! You will love her!

SHOW NOTES:

  • We are often looking for that place when we are free of struggle…that fairy tale place.
  • We’re just where we need to be at any given moment.
  • Leaning in means allowing and trusting instead of resisting.
  • The judgement of others doesn’t matter.
  • People are generally uncomfortable with other’s pain. They want us not to feel that pain, because it makes them feel uncomfortable.
  • We are already the person we are meant to be, we are just not seeing it because we are over complicating it.
  • Thinking about dying makes shit very real.
  • It’s all about choices, and taking responsibility for ourselves. Be okay with it, own it.
  • The world is just the mirror to what is going on inside. Judgement is always about us.
  • When you strip away all the other voices and other people’s stories about you, you get to the real you.
  • The love we crave is there ALL THE TIME.
  • Your version of success can only be defined by YOU
  • You can’t be all things to all people. You can only be you.

Since my divorce, over 15 years ago I have been on a quest for happiness and enlightenment.

Books, podcasts, audio tapes, audiobooks, mantras, yoga, prayer, meditation, therapy, retreats, seminars, grateful apps, A Course of Miracles (I’ve done the first two weeks a half dozen times), a cord cutter (don’t ask), a shaman, many Super Souls Sundays and list could go on! I was chasing it away! Get rid of those negative thoughts! Do it right now! Do it!

And then I met Zofie, practical, real and so funny, she gives a relaxed easy approach to letting go of those negative thoughts and finding your own happy place. I use her mediations on a daily basis these days. And they are knocking the shit out of my ancient stories about myself and life and I am seeing the forest through the trees. She has one on her website you can get for free!

So, meet Zofie Lloyd-Kucia… this is her first time but won’t be her last on Honestly Lisa. And FYI, in the not too distant future, we are going to do about three sessions ala Katy Perry style for you all to hear.

SHOW NOTES

  • It’s all about using relaxation to find happiness or success.
  • Live without love, laughter, and fun doesn’t make sense.
  • Living with Faith and Trust helps things work out.
  • Our thoughts really matter.
  • You don’t need to make yourself happy. You just need to stop fucking things up.
  • It’s not about what you do, but how you feel.
  • Life is a big mirror. When you shift how you feel, your life will reflect that.
  • You are born on this earth to have fun, so get on with it!
  • The less we judge, the freer we are. Life feels easier when we just state things factually.
  • Goodness is flowing to us all. The questions is how much will you allow?
  • Be mindful of where your focus is.
  • Don’t say I’m afraid, say I’m excited! It’s the same in your body.
  • Take the pressure off. Seeking your happiness should be stressful. Ever.

I have Michelle Pante & Reena Lazar on this episode from the glorious inspiring Willow EOL. They help us look at the things that may be scary but important to grasp because ultimately, looking at the end of our lives can inspire us to live fully right now.

Honestly, this is a pretty funny interview and not a downer at all… you will laugh ass off and maybe cry a little. Like a good romcom.

I remember calling my mother about a week before she died to ask her what color Crocs(the shoes) she wanted. My sister said to me, Lisa she is dying and does not need shoes. I argued with my sister to not be such a Debbie Downer and then bought my mom a leopard pair Crocs.

I arrived at my moms’ house with leopard Crocs in hand to find my whole family sitting with her. My mom still able to talk said thank you and looked at me with a mom look and I began to sob, really sob. And I could not stop crying until… well… I am still crying now writing this.

It’s been almost 10 years and I still cry out of nowhere. I still have the crocks. They are my go-to yoga shoes and every time I look down I see my mom. I want to be buried in the leopard Crocs, they will be super comfortable to wear in the afterlife.

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.

Show Notes: 

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

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
