Ashley Turner, Demystifying Meditation

Just a few names of the rock stars that are collaborating on this project…Russell Simmons, Marianne Williamson, Tim Ryan, Dr. Dan Siegel, Seane Corn, Gabrielle Bernstein, and SO many more! (yeah I said they were rock stars)

Ashley & I talked all about the myths of meditation and how to add it into your daily life. Check it out…

Conquering Fear with a Fear List

So when I was thinking about shifting my blog to this new format, there was some fear that came with it. I’m not quite sure why. Probably because it was a change, and change is always a little nerve racking, right?

And when I began to really notice the fear, the fear basically of rejection and failure, I came up with an idea. For a lot of decisions we make pro/con lists, what are the good things and what are the not so good things. And I thought to myself, well hey, I could do that with fear to. Thanks to President Roosevelt we know that “the only thing to fear, is fear itself.” So creating a fear list became my answer to looking at my fear right in the face.

See my fear list below:
Fear listOnce you have your fears written down in front of you, they seem a lot smaller. It’s funny how that happens. The thing that holds us back from making decisions are the ‘what ifs’ And we can concentrate on those pretty easily. What end up happening? Nothing. The fear hold us back.

That’s where the fear list comes in. The list is the realization that even if these things happened, you would be ok. Conquer your fear by recognizing your fear. Shrink your fear by realizing that even if you ‘fail’ the world will keep on turnin’. Next time you have something come up in your life where fear is holding you down. Try this trick, make that fear list, take a look, and let it go. You can conquer it all, all it takes is realizing that your fear is small and you are bigger. Go out and get it!

Change is ALWAYS in the air

Ok, so I know I have talked about change before. But you know the funny think about change? It keeps happening.

They always say that the one consistency in life is change, and I think they mean it.

You may have noticed that you are receiving my newsletters and blogs every two weeks, yep, things are a changing. I have moved, and am currently living out of boxes. This change is good, but it’s like resetting the start button again.

Isn’t all change kind of like that?

You make a change or a change happens to you and you are left rebuilding. New city, new career, new whatever–over time changes will happen to all of us. And what we have to do is flow with it as best we can.

And that’s what I’m (attempting) to do. With a changing schedule I am honing in on my blogging, working on putting a lifestyle spin on the (new) blog. You will find more posts, interviews, views on health and beauty with a nice sprinkling of sassiness! I have shifted some of my teaching online with my new program (here it is!), and am working on my patience as life builds itself back up in my new city…easier said than done.

And what I want to let you know is that I have been trying to give myself some grace. And that’s what I want to say to you, you are not alone. You are not the only one who sometimes feel unsettled, frazzled, and confused as hell. We’ve all been there, we’ll be there again. With change we have to have faith for the flow—the flow that you will once again settle and that this rocking path you are on you can handle!

Change isn’t easy, but it is a part of life. Better to swim with the current than push against it. Have heart, have faith, know that this stuff happens for a reason and when you feel a little bat-crap crazy–embrace it! We all have moments like that, give yourself some grace and some time. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, those miracles are comin’ your way <3

MUCH Love and punch rollin’,
Jo Beth
