Ever feel like you're running a race at someone else's pace? As we launch into Season 2 of Bloom Into Abundance, we focus on embracing the rhythms that feel most natural to us, rather than the arbitrary timelines society sets. Our decision to begin the New Year with the Chinese New Year is just one way we're syncing with our own cycles of rejuvenation and productivity. You'll hear tales from our own life transitions, like moving house and starting a new business venture in Ubud, and how we accommodate our children's schedules into our creative process. We're carving out space to discuss the bigger themes of the year ahead, including leadership and abundance, all while honoring the slower, more respectful approach to time that we've learned to appreciate here on the island.

Picture this: you're sitting on a rock by the ocean, waves lapping at your feet, as you let go of the stress from juggling too many projects. This episode is your rock, and we're talking about reducing anxiety by simplifying your workload. My co-host and I get real about the anxious moments we've faced and how dialing in on single projects can elevate productivity and peace of mind. Whether you see your work style as a sprint or a marathon, we'll arm you with personal insights and strategies for energy management that can help you thrive. Get ready to learn about the surprising link between physical exertion and anxiety, and find out why sometimes the best thing you can do is just sit and breathe.

Dive into the depths of your soul with us as we channel Zen teachings to cultivate inner healing and understand the art of boundary-setting. Saying 'no' is an act of self-care, and we'll share why it's essential to preserve your vitality, particularly in the entrepreneurial realm. We explore the transformational power of trust, gratitude, and the conscious choice to cease complaining. In anticipation of future episodes, we tease the idea of incorporating breathwork and meditation practices to guide you toward a more radiant existence. Join us on this journey where we navigate the rough seas of life and find solace in the sanctity of our own boundaries and beliefs.

Speaker 1:

Satnam, welcome back to the Bloom Into Abundance podcast. My name is Rabindra.

Speaker 2:

Hi everyone, I'm Myra.

Speaker 1:

And welcome to season two. Maybe we call it season 24 of the podcast, Season two, here we go.

Speaker 1:

So we wanted to start this conversation as a bit of a January pep talk. You know, I know that there's so much expectation that goes into starting a new year, especially with New Year's resolutions, and you know kind of this idea of just kind of going for it right away. But reality is we're not all in the same season, we're not all. You know, New Year's is different for different people, and so we wanted to kind of kind of give you the permission slip if you're watching this today or listening somewhere out there the permission slip to set your own New Year's Day. You know what I mean. For us we've chosen to do this on Chinese New Year's.

Speaker 2:

Which is February 10th.

Speaker 1:

February 10th.

Speaker 2:

Any of you were wondering. Also yeah, it's the year of the dragon, so we feel, like you know, creating a nice ally ship to that.

Speaker 1:

So we're moving our year into February 10th, giving us this January is more of a buffer month. Also, like you know, you have Christmas and you have New Year's Eve celebration, and then you have this kind of first week of January where it's still kind of New Year's celebration, people are still getting back to work and kind of getting out of their holiday mode and getting into you know, life mode, and then you're going to feel out what 2024 is about for them. And you know, for me, my birthday is on January 10th, which was a couple days ago, right, yeah, a couple days ago.

Speaker 2:

A week ago.

Speaker 1:

Four days ago actually. Yes, that's true. But so, yeah, even with that, for me New Year's happens and then the holiday just kind of doesn't stop until after my birthday for me. So I'm like really starting on like mid January so that kind of messes up my New Year's resolution plans If I started on January 1st. So that's one of the first points we wanted to make today was just kind of, you know, to get the best experience of 2024, to try to really utilize this kind of fresh start and you beginning energy, you got to really know and understand what season that you're in right now you know, and being in Bali has really bent this whole idea of season for us, because Well, there is no seasons here, Summer time all the time.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. So the fascinating thing we're in Bali. There's, like you know, tropical season and then rainy season, but then it's rainy season hasn't really showed up yet.

Speaker 2:

Because they're controlling the clouds.

Speaker 1:

Okay, let's go into that later. But we're also originally from North America. I'm from Canada, in Edmonton, alberta, where, like, they just had the coldest day of the year, meanwhile in Bali, we had the hottest day of the year. But we're still. There's still kind of even though we've been here for about four years the season that we still feel. We still feel what's happening in North America and we also feel the season that's happening here.

Speaker 1:

But to deep dive even deeper for us, we just finished moving, we just launched a new shop in Ubud. We just kind of gave it a big push, you know, at the end of last year. So for us the season is a little bit of recouping at the moment. You know, we had this idea that right when New Year starts, we'd get back in the gym and we'd be there, or right when the kids started school again we'd get there. But it feels like, yeah, in the next one or two weeks we'll kind of get that rhythm flowing again. So the season is there, right. So we're giving ourselves that bit of a permission slip, but we still know that, yeah, we're going to kind of get in the physical flow of things at the gym or you know that kind of thing in the coming weeks, right? Yeah, and that comes from just like understanding who we are and understanding where we're are. You know, also, as parents, we, our kids, just started school two days ago, so really our season kind of feels like it's just starting again, right?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and they've been kind of the barometer of how to get things into motion. So we'll definitely roll the podcasts during the periods that they start school and then hold off on it during the times that they're on a break.

Speaker 1:

That's why we had a bit of a. You know we're trying, we're going to do this weekly. However, you know holiday season, and then we were away and now, you know, now kids are in school, now we're back in the flow. So that's a bit of self-awareness of where you're at, you know what are the major things you're working on and where are those things at, and just to know how to pace yourself going into this new year, this eight universal year, which is quite exciting.

Speaker 2:

It's quite palpable. It's got a lot of leadership and abundance and mutability, like kind of discerning with change and how to navigate with that, because it's also karmic. So whenever we have like a karmic experience, there's a push to change or to alter something within you or to transcend something into a new layer of your being.

Speaker 1:

Being on the island. Something we learn over and over again is the time that things take to develop and build. You know, island time is quite slow, there's no rushing around here. So we definitely learned how to bring patients and knowingness into projects.

Speaker 2:

It's also kind of this return to the indigenous soul rhythm because it's so prominent on the island. They kind of flow at a different pace, they vibrate to a different rhythm that is definitely in congruency with the Lunations, with their own season, right, and coming from this mind-western construct, there's like a timeline and there's a due date and there's a by-win, and there's this compressed kind of configuration that is so embedded in ourselves that we expect that from an island that does not compute.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, so it's wonderful to see it's wonderful to see and it's also very humbling. It's really kind of just like oh, what is the rush? What are we rushing towards?

Speaker 1:

Yeah, slowing down and then, yeah, you see the streets filled with ceremonies here and it's like, oh, it must be a new moon or it must be a full moon. Everybody takes days off for that kind of stuff. So, taking understanding yourself a little deeper, we were just laughing about this, but we did a photo shoot yesterday and it was a real sprint. It was like you know, we had a good push in the morning we weren't laughing, you were giving me feedback.

Speaker 1:

And I was laughing about it, you were laughing at me, but yeah, so understanding how you work is another way of looking at this year. For me, I'm a bit of a marathon runner. You know, I can sit and go out, I can grind for seven hours if I need to or if I want to, but that's just my natural thing, whereas Myra is more of a sprinter where, like yesterday, you know, the photo shoot was a sprint. It was like three, four hours of just go, go, go. And now today I noticed she was a bit slower. Or we got the kids to school a little bit later and I was like, hey, what's going on? Are you taking that buffer after your sprint off? Because I'm just starting to understand that about her.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it's getting more magnified. I can't hide.

Speaker 1:

But yeah, knowing that about yourself is like, okay, I'm a sprinter, okay, and yeah, and also like we had a.

Speaker 2:

Well, I had a revelation in terms of like, yeah, that's right, I can't, I can't, you know, not that I'm throwing them under the bus by being late, but I have to, you know, pull up my, my big girl pants and you know show off to the children.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, how much of it is comfort and comfort, and it's usually just comfort, because sometimes when I go that sprint, it's like all of the energy that's also in, in, you know, in the reserve, and then so I have to consolidate and as an introvert, believe it or not, I need that space to consolidate and to fill up.

Speaker 1:

But you know it takes, it takes time and what for me it's like it takes time to kind of gain focus, gain momentum, and then you kind of get in the flow right. So that's where I'm like, wow, you were just so deep in the flow and now you're like just giving it away. You know, I'm like just stay in the flow, go, keep the marathon running. But that's just a matter of like, you need to check. Yeah, drink the water, but yeah, understanding yourself in my marathon runner or my sprinter or my brisk walker. You know, if we were in Canada right now, minus 30, minus 40, we'd be brisk walkers, you know, just walking real fast because you don't want to be walking slow in the winter.

Speaker 1:

Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You know. So it's a nice fast pace. So that's another way of looking at it, you know. And then also we can take fresh notes from you know what worked and what didn't work in 2023, for example, you know, we for me, or for us, or I'll talk about me, maybe you know, looking back and trying to pace the year, you know, I just I just put too many things on the docket.

Speaker 1:

I had a lot of projects big ones, like really really big projects all at the same time, one back to back to back to back and just over, under over, estimating or underestimating how big they actually were. So this year I'm just really honing it in on one or two big projects at most, but the focus being the one first and then getting the second one on the docket later. So my manifestations, my prosperity mantras, are all focused on the one big project this year. So, whenever I think prosperity, whenever I think abundance, whenever I think, okay, this is what I want to manifest and it's specifically the one big thing, the one big project, instead of like the three or five things that I want to bring like, it's just like no, let's just get that one thing in let's get that big project, that big thing that's going to move life forward in the most dreamy way and focus, focus, focus, focus daily, a couple times a day on that.

Speaker 1:

So you know me, having too many things on the docket ended up with me actually experiencing anxiety over the last three or four months for the first time in my life in a deep way, like physically. I was, I was, I was floored. I have never felt it like it was visceral in my body and I didn't know what to do. I was doing all my practice and it would work, and then later it'd come back and finally I've done a few things. So for one, I stopped drinking coffee. Yeah, number two so the initial thought is like, okay, I'm having anxiety, so I want to, um, yank it out, like go to the gym, run, sprint, do all these crazy things, and that was actually increasing my anxiety, even though at first it would, I would be totally spent and I it would be gone. But then later I'm so spent that I don't have the energy to come back. So the anxiety didn't go away with that. So it's quite opposite.

Speaker 1:

Lots of people get the feedback to and this may be just a lot about self-knowledge Um, maybe for you, like, I have another friend that that is going through a moment and she, uh, you know, she did another. She went to a yang thing which was like a breathwork exercise and some, for some of you, this that may just work, that might just help cut, cut it, Uh, but for her it actually made her worse and I'm like, yeah, because it's a yang activity, you need to just basically the feedback that my mentor gave me was like, instead of running by the rock or instead of sprinting by the rock on the beach, just go sit on the rock. So just sit down, close your eyes, relax, you know, ground yourself, put your feet on the earth, bring it down to the most basic. So yeah, these fresh kind of notes about what worked and didn't work with 2023, bringing those into 2024, is key. For me.

Speaker 1:

It was like, yeah, oh yeah, coffee is not working. Oh yeah, putting too many projects on the table is not working. Oh yeah, the yangness of my physical activities isn't working, you know. So, cutting just those couple of things out and just the basics and my hydrated, my sleeping, how's my environment, how's my home, how's my bedroom, how's my office, all these things, just tweaking all those little things, is now putting me in a really good position, both of us, to now start to gain some momentum in 2024, which we're really excited about.

Speaker 2:

Just to kind of add to that conclusion in terms of how you were dealing with your anxiety, you know, one thing that comes to mind is the thought. You know the thought that consumes with you know all of the expectations and the pressures that we apply on ourselves and then how to materialize. It is such a heavy loaded thing that weighs on the heart.

Speaker 1:

And that's what I'm bringing into 2024, 2023. I had just the expectations. The anxiety I was feeling was about my own expectations about how these projects, how fast they were going to go or not go, but if I gave them time island time then it's all good, and none of it have been as big stress, really. It was just like I was trying to rush certain things forward and that's just really just happened.

Speaker 1:

So, 2024, not going to rush into this one step at a time. You'll be slow mojoes, you know, and one thing that I ask myself almost every day is just like, what's the most you know? And so what we want to do is okay, understand the self. It's like, okay, I'm a sprinter, marathon runner, brisk walker, Okay, I'm one of these things. If you're a marathon runner person like me, then you need to create boundaries. There's like you need to put yourself in places where you can actually do that kind of marathon work and not be disturbed, right. And if you're a sprinter, then yeah, you need to schedule those sprints into your week so that you actually get them done right. And then also, after the sprint, give yourself that relaxation time, like that forehand massage that you love to do, or the-.

Speaker 2:

Forehand massage. I mean, if you have the opportunity, book it.

Speaker 1:

We know some secret spots in Bali. If you are ever here where we might, no, we would definitely give them to you if you reached out.

Speaker 2:

If you reached out, they're just, it's little hidden gems that just are so nourishing.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, so we're kind of moving into this more zenful zen way of moving, and that kind of brings us to those zen lessons that we were talking about earlier.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, there's these five immortal lessons, that kind of they seem a bit.

Speaker 2:

Nothing in zen is ever literal, but also everything in zen is literal.

Speaker 2:

So I mean that's what makes it zen, but these five immortal, empowered lessons really kind of help restore your sense of inner healing and kind of protect the soul a bit. So one of the teachings that they share, or that is shared in the zen teachings, is that the soul is a representation of the subconscious mind. And if you can't heal that part, meaning clear out all of the, you know, parasitic thought forms that come in and try to play out your life, then there's this kind of disruption that's happening in your system and you're not able to truly just experience life for the sake of experience life in its bounty and in its glory and in its joy, right. So one of the main, I guess, ideas of these five immortal lessons is to learn to say no, and it kind of goes a line with boundaries. But to say no more often, right, we're so quick to say yes, especially in the West, or at least in my experience with Canadians everything is yes, you know, like yes of course.

Speaker 2:

Yes, my pleasure. Yes, yes, yes. You know and if you can just say no, just for the sake of your own you know energetic containment, so that you're not overflowing and you're not. You know they call it a leaky chi, right, or a leaky gut, but so that your chi is not leaking and you can kind of plug those in and then you can steer the ship with no fear that you're gonna sink.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and underneath of that is trust. You know, as an entrepreneur for my entrepreneurs out there, you know, when it comes to opportunities, they're. One of my favorite quotes is like there are opportunities, are like waves in the ocean and you just it's not like you know. You go to the ocean and you watch and you don't think there's another wave coming. You know, you know there's another wave coming, right, so there's as many opportunities as there are waves in the ocean, so you can say no to one wave, especially if you're surfing. You don't say yes to every wave. You're gonna get spent real quick. Your surf is gonna be 20 minutes and if you're a sprinter, I guess maybe that's good for you, but no, it doesn't feel good to catch every wave.

Speaker 1:

I don't sprint when I surf okay, she catches the one or two waves right away. She's like the fast starter, and then she's like I'm done, I'm just gonna flow, and she like sun tans on the surfboard.

Speaker 2:

I'm just waiting for the turtle to come and bless me. I'm like, where are you? But to conclude, or to continue to add to these lessons, the second one is kind of known to, and it's very much in correlation with you know, the teachings in Kundalini yoga is stop complaining. To stop complaining to find your own solution right, not to come to your friend, continuing to come with the same story of, like my woes, because then you're a let down, you know. And then as you become a let down, then you kind of keep holding that frequency and you can't escape it. But often, a lot of the times, you find the solution within. It's very graspable and sometimes it's also having the ability. This is what we tell both our mothers. We say you know, if you're worrying about us, just pray for us. You know what?

Speaker 2:

I mean Instead of worrying about the thing. Instead of complaining about the thing, pray for it and give it to God, you know, give it to spirit, give it to the ocean, give it to you know, the better version of you that knows how to solve the problem.

Speaker 1:

The knows how to solve the equation. Yeah, if it's coming up, bring it up. Visualize whatever's bothering you that you wanna complain about, and then give it to spirit, give it to your higher self and let them deal with it, or let your higher self deal with it, you know, you don't have to deal with everything in the mind, you know, and stopping complaining is a big deal like, because the opposite of that is really like. Start being grateful, you know, and grateful is the key to abundance. Gratefulness is the key to flow. It's the key to being a successful entrepreneur and a happy person.

Speaker 2:

One thing that you used to say, too, is, like what is this grateful for you know what is this problem?

Speaker 1:

Perfect, what do you perfect?

Speaker 2:

Oh, yeah, what is this perfect for? Yeah, the problem or the solution or the conflict, right, but in terms of like, what the Zen lesson is trying to portray is you know, don't bring your troubles to a gathering. You know, like don't complain. And in Kundalini Yoga we say don't complain, don't compete and don't compare, because all those three concepts deplete you of your vitality. And it's very specific the depletion, it's like 30% of each of those three. So then that wipes out you know 90% of your end.

Speaker 2:

And then you're just kind of walking around with 10% of your vitality, which is not, you know, not nourishing.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, what you radiate, you attract right. So you wanna really build and work on that radiant body. And then step one is stop complaining and step two is really step into gratitude.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and you can have access to techniques for how to build the radiant body just through breath.

Speaker 1:

Which we'll definitely share with you guys in In future episodes. We're talking about doing some meditations in Kriyas right here, as we do the podcast.

Speaker 2:

Maybe it's a podcast workshop, yeah, maybe we just did, you know, provide the meditation after, or something. We're weaving it together. It's a work in progress which I kind of really enjoy watching it develop just in the spot you know, as we continue.

Speaker 2:

So another one, another, one again can be a little bit of a trigger point. But again, that is Zen, right, it's just so cross in many ways and it's to not always be available for people. And I'll use kind of more of a metaphor. It's like, you know, they say that we're however much percent made out of water, and if you're not, you know, if water is so available, you're not really cherishing it, you know, you're not really taking it for it, for its worth, because it's everywhere, it's accessible, right. But if you take a diamond, diamonds aren't available, right, so it's revered more, it's sought after more, right. So if you, you know, reflect on kind of your availability, right. I have this thing where he makes fun of me, where, you know, I have certain people on archives.

Speaker 1:

No, you have everybody on archives.

Speaker 2:

Okay, you want to tell a story?

Speaker 1:

Well, no, it's a. It's a cool system. In Indonesia and Bali we use WhatsApp for communication more than anything else and yeah, it's just like. Anyone can just slip into your or just like your Instagram DMs. Anyone can just slip into them. But at least even with Instagram, you can put people into the general category where it doesn't actually like. You don't get the message, all of the notification, and so with WhatsApp, you can put them all in the archive or put them in a different group, which is a good idea, I think yeah.

Speaker 2:

No, it's worked. And I kind of feeds a little bit into the boundaries, not, you know, not saying yes all the time or not having people be available to your energy all the time, and then it also discerns to not saying that you know you also don't want to miss out on opportunities that do come in, but you can have the choice to like. Sometimes I visit the archives like okay, who tried to reach out? Now I have time, you know. And then it's like it's an allocating kind of yeah, that designated time for those designated moments where your attention is needed, but also on your, on your time frame, on your timeline.

Speaker 1:

Cool, yeah. So with that I would add you know on your day to day how that could work and how to really make it. You know we're in set Capricorn season and it's my my season.

Speaker 1:

Capricorn. I'm a goat but, yeah, one way to implementing this not being available for other people is actually just having a plan of action for your day, and one of those things that's actually really, really powerful thing is is okay, I know where I'm at and I'm. I have just asked myself what's the most impactful, powerful thing I can do today, for example, and then I take a power hour. So this power hours to focus completely on the most powerful, most impactful thing that will move the needle in my life today. You know, I got it from a friend of mine who actually used his power hour more for revenue and generating income.

Speaker 1:

If you want to generate more income in your life, if you want to create more abundance in your life, the power hour is a great idea and you focus solely on revenue generating activities. So, for example, getting yourself booked for a workshop, planning a retreat you know, if you're in this kind of space, putting out a new product on your website, if that's it, sending an email to your client list, that you know that's a new offer, creating new offers, generating your money. So all the kinds of things you can do to generate revenue could be your power hour, which, for a lot of us, you know a lot of people don't focus a lot on that, and if you need more abundance, that's what you do, you know. You do 15 minute abundance, kriya, kundalini abundance, kriya, and then you do 45 minute power, hour power, 45 minutes of like focused time on that which would be super cool.

Speaker 2:

That'd be a nice discipline practice. And the fourth one is actually one of my favorites. It's something that my children, our children, kind of hold us accountable for a lot of the times. But always do what you say you're going to do, right, don't make false promises, don't make false accusations and just follow through on that which you say you're going to do, because that also feeds a little bit of your own inner self trust and self motivation and self love. Right, when you are honest with your commitments and what you are moving forward with it's. I mean, yes, of course you can change your mind. There's that permission to change your mind, but also communicate that. You know we live in a society and in a culture now where you know deflecting and ghosting is okay, and so you know they forgot. I'm not going to bring it up, but it's like you kind of have to, you know, walk the walk, that that you're saying that you're going to walk or that you say that you're walking.

Speaker 1:

Three of the most powerful words you can use in 2024 as an entrepreneur or as someone who wants to really create a life of freedom for yourselves, is I did it. You have an idea and you did it. You just did it. You went for it. You trusted your mentor. You met your coach. You met, you know your circle that you look to for guidance and you trusted. You said yes, you committed, you said you would do something and you did it. And I did it, and I did it and I did it.

Speaker 2:

And don't get so hung up on like the timeline right, because again we're going back to the seasons, like everything kind of has its own season and its own rhythm and its own way that it wants to reveal itself. You know. So if you say, you know, this year I want to do a retreat, and then you get to, like December, and then the retreat happens in December and you got it done, you know, maybe you didn't hit the March mark, but it got it got done. You know like, for example, last year, my intention was to, you know, go on a retreat and I ended up facilitating a retreat, which was great, and of course, there wasn't a specific timeline. I know some people in the whole mastermind and manifestation programs say, like, be specific, be as specific as you can. However, you want to create a buffer so that there's a collaboration happening.

Speaker 1:

So there can be some spontaneous things happening, for sure.

Speaker 2:

And you're not kind of tied down to that particular timeline and you're open to, you know, what else kind of comes in. You know, and there's no interference with you wanting to hold that particular time construct and then limit yourself to again what's coming up. And so the what would you, what would you call it? Like, the channel is open, you know. So things can come in to inspire you, the momentum. Maybe it happens a little bit quicker than you anticipated, maybe a little bit later, but you know, kind of deconstructing the pressure of chronos, the pressure of timelines.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, so I did. It is a powerful three words to use this year.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, really avoid false promises and words.

Speaker 1:

And one thing you can do is obviously to say something like verbally is also very different than, say, writing it down so you can get the garbage out in your notebook. You know, it's a good idea to just do a dump mind, dump into the journal like free flow, non-judgmental, like da, da, da, da da. Here's all the things I want to do, and da, da, da da. But the things that you say out loud, the things that you put in your calendar, the things you share with your partner, your family, yourself, out loud, through your voice, also has a different kind of projection to it. That, you know, is this is different than when you're writing it.

Speaker 2:

So use your journal as a tool for that you know, the journaling provides the space and then the sound actually puts in the incepted seed of that which you want to cultivate more of. So, yeah, the sound germinates the, the expression. And the fifth one, the last one, is to kind of get out of this um, I want to call it the, the poor-minded identity which is, um, the scarcity mind. So really, you focus on prosperity practices, whatever they look like. You know, you don't want to be on the planet in lack, because that's not your birthright. You didn't come here with nothing, you came here with so much. You know, when you kind of, again, you don't want to compare, but because we have ego and the ego likes to compare, not to negate the ego.

Speaker 2:

However, when that happens, you have to realize that the only thing different is that they, that person that you're comparing yourself with, with that has elevated or attained whatever is it that you want to attain is the only difference is that they, they worked at it. You know what I mean. They worked what they worked. Right, we come here with the same thing yeah, maybe they're a trust fund kid. Yeah, maybe they got da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da da.

Speaker 2:

But if you can take that as energy, or realize that, oh, that's just energetic backing. You have the access to insource those resources as well, just by applying your own energetic, um impressions and your own energetic you know, uh, tenacity, right, because sometimes, when that person I mean this is my observation is that when you're in a relationship, is that when someone is just funded, there's a difference between someone that is not self-made but that, um, that inception that inspires you to just, you know, do your work. Whatever it looks like is more palpable, you know, and there's there's like a like a deeper, more rich, um, heart resonance to whatever is it that that thing is, you know. So one of the big lessons for this immortal, immortal prosperity lesson is to really prosper, develop your prosperity, because it's yours and, just like a muscle, you need to keep strengthening it right, and you need to keep practicing at it. And, you know, try to aim for the best version of yourself.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and then what we're doing this year is we're creating an image of what that prosperity looks like, and then we're focusing on that at least once a day in a visualization, after a meditation. Um, but you're continuously visualizing what prosperity looks like this year, this season, for you. What is that thing that you're bringing to life?

Speaker 2:

And when those negating thoughts come in, just you know, don't try to ignore them, just bless them. Thank you for that reminder. I know that you're trying to keep me safe. You know, and I know that you don't want to grow, because it's scary to grow and the unknown is terrifying. However, this is for the greater good of us, you know, and when I say us, I mean again the ego is its own entity, it's its own identity, right? So it needs to feel included and it needs to, kind of you have to hold its hand and let it know that it's going to be okay as you walk through your own power of you know, self-initiation into, into that construct that you know might not even be as um, um, graspable right now, but you know that it's, it's attainable, right? So Amazing.

Speaker 1:

So those are the five. Yeah, any other one you want to add?

Speaker 2:

Um, one thing that I do kind of want to touch on is that, um, heal, healing the soul concept, um, and in order to heal the soul, um, it's, it's, you have to hit the body first. Right, so you heal, heal the soul, you heal the body, because a lot of what is out of balance in the body has to do with the soul. And if again, we understand that the soul is the subconscious mind, we have to continually do work to try to, you know, like he was saying, journal, get the thoughts out, do practices that clear out the subconscious programming.

Speaker 1:

Um, we've been going through a couple years of deep excavation of the subconscious through Kundalini and some other practices we've been going deep with and, uh, yeah, it's felt a little bit lonely at first. You know, we came to Bali. Uh, we came to a new country and so then we lost all our friends from the other country. Then we came here and we had a lot of new people that came that became fast friends, but then such a transient place. People left really quickly and then we started doing some deep, deep excavating work and now it's like just us and I think one of the big intentions we have this year is to create community in the real world, physically again, you know, and we're kind of ready for that you know, and that's coming now at the end of like a lot of work of cleaning and clearing, and cleaning and clearing is a big deal.

Speaker 1:

It's you know. If you start to see these negative thoughts coming up, you need to find a way to clean them. You need to clean constantly. You take a shower every day to clean your body, but you need to find ways to clean your mind right. So we use Kundalini Yoga and we use some other practices as well, but primarily it's Kundalini.

Speaker 2:

Yeah and yeah. Whenever you feel like that dark thought is consuming, you do something about it. You know, and if you don't know what to do about it, one of the greatest techniques that we have is just taking a cold shower. Taking a cold shower, or even going out into nature taking a dip in the ocean. The ocean water is probably one of the best clearing waters that you can have access to, which is, which is nice and yeah and we'll write the thing down and say dear spirit, this is the thing that's bothering me.

Speaker 1:

It keeps coming up and then burn it or bury it or do something like that there was a meditation technique that we were really in last year.

Speaker 2:

It was kind of it was called the, what it was at the three screen technique and it's by Jose Silva. It's really cool technique that we were really learning and diving into and it was kind of visualizing the problem and then visualizing the, you know, extended, you know the exaggerated problem.

Speaker 1:

So yeah, you do the problem, exaggerate it, and then the solution the solution and then you give it to spirit.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you kind of just lift it.

Speaker 1:

However, that looks like for you Lift it up. Then give it away. So it's a really good practice that we do as well.

Speaker 2:

It really does something too. You almost feel like the pressure is lifted, like it was like it kind of opened up the shoulders more. The cavity was just like a little softer.

Speaker 1:

Cool, okay, so we need to understand in summary, here you know, what season are you in Number two, what kind of worker like, what kind of? How do you work? Are you a marathon runner, sprinter, brisk walker? And then taking in all your fresh notes from 2023, integrating the things that you learned and putting it into your life? Don't let that be a waste. Use those lessons right.

Speaker 2:

And then applying those five immortal lessons. You know and you can always replay it on here, and yeah, just what that you know, what do they look like for you and how can you implement them. And since it's Capricorn season.

Speaker 1:

Even if you can have one power hour a week, wow. If you have a one power hour a day, wow. But maybe try three power hours a week. Whatever you can do, just take it and run with it and put. You can put the focus of the power hour on different things right.

Speaker 2:

Mine right now is clearing my our new. Well, we just moved to our old home, so turning my tea room back into my tea sanctuary, right now is just a clutter box.

Speaker 1:

Okay, well, that's it, that's all.

Speaker 2:

That's it. I hope you guys got some you know takeaways and some insights and some inspired thoughts we're rolling through yeah yeah, bloom into abundance the course is coming.

Speaker 1:

Moving into grace the course is coming. We're creating a really cool community experience online where we can access courses and interact more than we can through podcasts and Instagram and email, so hoping to create a more of an interactive community with some of you that will choose to come with us and continue this conversation even deeper. So thank you for coming.

Speaker 2:

And thank you for coming, and then we'll also be teaching I think what February 3rd, on this really beautiful woman's leadership course called the Aquarian Society.

Speaker 1:

Aquarian Women's Leadership Society. It's with Rama Institute. I've applied yoga science.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, they're a beautiful studio, kudalini yoga studio, which I'm sure some of you are familiar with, and and yeah it's. I mean it's a really beautiful program for women. We're going to co teach together on just kind of the beauty of relationship and how to hold it and why it's so important. You know, we've been kind of taught to glorify the single life and the pursuit of the woman to just build her empire and then the man will come. But in my experience the man came and then the empire came.

Speaker 1:

Well, see how it goes for everybody out there, but thank you, thank you.
