EP: 17 Survival Is Not The Enemy, The #Sparked Life Podcast

Purpose Peep,

Have you heard statements that pit surviving against thriving?  Some sound like, “go from surviving to thriving.” I went so far in one of my tag lines to say, “end survival as a lifestyle to thrive in your life of purpose.”  During my exploration of yes/and strategies,  I heard the divide and could see another possibility.

Screenshot (549)Surviving and thriving are not at war with one another or at opposite ends of a spectrum.  We are wired to kick into survival mode when needed and to return to our homestate when the danger is no longer present.  The issue lies in staying in survival mode in a defensive posture, which can be problematic to thriving in life, which requires being open, vulnerable and available to our path to purpose journey and experiences.

I realized my desired outcome for myself and clients is not to end survival as a lifestyle but to transform survival as a lifestyle by letting it be just what it is–a temporary strategy.  We are all living through temporary survival strategies as our response to the COVID19 pandemic.  Life will shift as we live and heal through this experience.

I believe that as we co-create our new normal, what we learn and cultivate during this time will become the bedrock, the strong foundation, for what will come.  In this episode, let’s unlock and face our survival patterns of old and hold them up to the light of now and who we are becoming as Purpose Peeps.

Listen here.

Announcing The COVID19 Support Page

Being a light in the storm of major, transformational change is rooted in who we are as Purpose Peeps.  Allow the storm to reveal our inner gifts and new ways to cooperate in times of complex considerations.  Be a demonstration of possibility for those who will read the stories of our responses for years to come.  For many who seek legacy, this is it.  We are cocreating it now.

When reflecting on what is in my hands, my inner and physical resources that hold the most value and relevance, a blank web page with a purpose perspective is a powerful combination.  Given my understanding of transformational change, with the level of disruption and the concerns, we hold as compassionate human beings who know every number is a person, our capacity to absorb is limited.

We actually increase in capacity by release.  Release can mean:

  • Letting go of our plans and accepting what is,
  • Stop fighting what we can not control and embracing our new spheres of impact, and influence, and/or
  • Being vulnerable enough to admit what we do not know.

Release also happens when we let the masks fall.  You know, the masks that allow us to blend and gain a level of acceptance.  Masks take energy to keep up and energy and capacity are optimal inner resources to tap into creativity, ingenuity and resolve.  

On this resource page, you will find free resources to support you, your family and circles of Purpose Peeps.  We are in a unique time when we are collectively experiencing the same driver of change and call to action–as many Purpose Peeps coming through this viral experience (blog for another time) with their higher wisdom and inner resources to rebuild our lives. Consider:

  • Using the S/Hero’s Journey to unlock our journey to the rewards that we will bring to our rebuild (youth & adults),
  • Unlocking Being a Helper At This Time (younger Purpose Peeps),
  • Creative Resources to help us calm, regroup and express ourselves,
  • Thought leadership, resources, and conversations with members of the Global Purpose Leaders community
  • Wall of Inspiration

and more, which is updated continually.

Here’s a message from my heart!

EP 16: The #Sparked Life Podcast – The Elephant In The Room Of Your Sparked Life

istockphoto-501057637-612x612Purpose Peeps,

Many of us are experiencing an uninvited guest in our sparked life–it’s an elephant in the room!  The more we try to ignore it, bypass it, positive think it, optimism it, or try to jump on its back and drive it out; it looks at us and enters another room in our lives.

COVID-19 is the Divine storm and its disruption is the elephant moving through the rooms of our lives. Daily we see rooms we thought were off-limits being entered.  That signals the depth of shifts and changes required to weather this storm.

So how do we still live our sparked lives, now, while also being present to the Divine storm that brought the elephant in our rooms? We are learning our way through and being present for answers that are bubbling up.  This episode shares a few that are popping up in our no BS zone!

Let’s unlock:

  • The nature of Divine storms
  • The purpose of elephants in our rooms
  • What Divine storms reveal
  • The importance of putting on our safety vests
  • How to tap into our sustaining factor
  • How our faith muscle is being strengthened

Purpose Peeps, no homework this time.  We are all doing the work in adjusting our lives, hearts, and perspective as we weather this storm–together.  What’s bubbling up for you?  What sacred truths are you living out loud through this experience? How is your faith muscle being strengthened? Check out the episode on iTunes and other mediums.

EP 15 The #Sparked Life Podcast: Shifted By Divine Storm

Bio_PhotoHey Purpose Peeps!

How are you doing?  This podcast is number 2 of  the “late posts.”The beginning of the year was a doozy, or so I thought before the Coronavirus Pandemic!  And yet, we know while living the sparked life that late is a relative term in the realm of Divine timing.

Episode 15 was recorded in late-February when several aspects of life that were stable were shaken.  It’s like being in the middle of an earthquake and holding a potted plant or some valuable when everything is shaking.  These events felt as though they were uprooting plans and grounding I felt through years of unlocking and inner work. Think about the times we agree with sayings like, “bloom where planted,” or “shift happens.” These times are at the intersection of what we believe and the life tests that transition what we believe into our being. Episodes 14 and 15 of The #Sparked Life Podcast will bring all types of juiciness to episode 16 The #Sparked Life Meets The Elephant In The Room.

Back to episode 15, Shifted By Divine Storm…  This episode reveals a pattern that exists among Purpose Peeps like you and me who are invested in our sparked life now and tend to guard the sparked life against the “other stuff” that appears dim the spark. Do Divine storm events put out our spark or do they act counterintuitively as conduits to strengthen our spark? Hmmmm…

This episode of The #Sparked Life explores the gifts of our purpose mindset coupled with how we build our faith muscles.  Travel with me to unlocking the power of our mantra, “the junk of life, the difficult things of life are fueling my spark.”  It’s interesting the different catalysts that birth our shifts and how the things that seem to derail our timing and our plans are actually on time.  Listen on Apple here and other platforms here.

EP 14 The #Sparked Life: Your Almosts

Bio_PhotoHey Purpose Peeps!

How are you doing?  This podcast is one of two “late posts.”  The beginning of the year was a doozy, or so I thought before the Coronavirus Pandemic!

This podcast was recorded on January 1, 2020 before challenges appeared to “jump me.”  You know, the pile on we experience from time to time, which is really the beginning of a Divine storm (spoiler alert).  Divine timing relates to a different clock that is connected to our purpose and destiny.  It’s when we try to put Divine storm events into the box of our understanding when our sparked life appears to be replaced by storm clouds!  Listen to episodes 14 and 15 of The #Sparked Life, and witness how life was preparing me for this time.  Purpose Peep, you may also review the events ending last year and beginning this year differently. These episodes will bring all types of juiciness to episode 16 The #Sparked Life Meets The Elephant In The Room.

Back to episode 14, Your Almosts… You know how we get into the doing zone when we see the light at the end of the tunnel, and we press our foot on the gas to soldier on?  First, we may hit a bump in the road, shake it off and keep going.  Then we may hit a speed bump, something that is definitely saying slow down.  Ultimately, there is a crash when our vehicle is halted and we have to accept that we were almost at the end of the tunnel, just before the finish line and we will not make it.

This episode of The #Sparked Life explores the gifts of our almosts and leads us to our powerful mantra, “Every experience in my sparked life counts and matters.”  It is one thing to believe that all things are working for our good and it is another to experience the many ways that truth plays out in our lives and builds a reservoir of faith to take us through the next level of truth experience and faith activation.
