You’ve probably heard this @mariannewilliamson quote, but have you ever truly let it sink in? To believe in something greater than us is to understand that we couldn’t have possibly been born to shrink, disappear or hide our light. Truly to embody your brilliance is to inspire light in the world. . . This isn’t about being flashy or loud or getting up on a big stage per se. It’s about you recognizing that you are precious and welcome just as you are. You don’t need to try to shine bright. You already are the light, and as you find a way to welcome the magnificent expression of divinity that you were born to be the unique light that YOU are shines through. . . Listen to this week’s episode on the Fear of Being Too Much on all podcast players or YouTube. . . . . . . #mariannewilliamson #shine #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #nonduality #consciousness

Yes. Yes. Yes! This week’s episode is about fearing you will be too big or too bright for others. Don’t contract just to make others more comfortable; people often grow through friction so their discomfort isn’t the problem you thought it was. If you shrink because it was unsafe to be seen, begin finding ways to feel at home in your body such as Judith Blackstone’s Realization Process or Neurosculpting with @lisa_wimberger- who is our guest next week. . . We don’t need to just accept our fears or energetic patterns as givens. We all can heal. We all can find safety and comfort in our skin. We all can shine. ✨✨ . Which btw also means don’t try to shut down others from stepping into their gloriousness just because it makes you uncomfortable. To come forward within ourselves we have to shift our perspective towards supporting every single Soul in embodying their brilliance. . . PS- think you don’t have the time or money? Both resources we mentioned here have online or telephone programs that greatly reduce barriers. . . We want to see you all shining bright!!! Let’s shine together!! . .

On this week’s episode we are speaking about the fear of being too much; too big, too shiny, too alive... ✨ ✨ You are never too much for this world. Yes, there are times when our needs may be experienced as too much for someone. Same with our pain or demands. But that doesn’t mean our needs are wrong or to be judged, and none of that is a reflection of who YOU truly are. ✨ ✨ When you live full-volume- standing in your own magnificence- you are finally being your genuine self. People may not like it- because preferences exist and triggers happen, but who said harmony with others was the highest goal anyway?! Often we grow, understand and evolve through friction. And should “getting along” with one person be more significant than bringing the world the magic you were designed to bring?! ✨ ✨ The body and mind can hold fears around this, so it can take practice to step into yourself, but you’ll discover that once you embody your true self it’s easier to see what’s really happening when you trigger someone. It’s so much easier not to take it personally or feel ashamed because as you live from your wholeness so too do you experience yourself as one with the cosmos; inextricably connected and made to be exactly who you are. ✨ ✨ Listen in to this week’s episode to hear more via YouTube or any podcast player. . . . . . . #anitamoorjani #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #nonduality #consciousness

It’s new episode Tuesday and we’ve got a goodie up on The Fear of Being “Too Big.” . Have you ever worried that if you were to truly shine as bright as you could you would make others uncomfortable? Or have you noticed moments where you shut down your own potential or thriving? . . You also may believe that your needs, your emotions or your presence is just simply too much for people. The fear of “being too much” can be a very common one, especially in empathic circles, and can create patterns of inhibition that keep us settling for less-than. . . We’ve experienced this fear in our own lives, each in our own ways, and that’s why in this episode we’re speaking all about it and offering what we’ve learned to embody our wholeness. . .

We’ve been speaking about having a direct experience of life that sometimes requires we mindfully break away from our rules and ways of self-managing, and sometimes we will make an error with that. You’ll get lost. But if you stay aware you’ll also get unlost. So if the timing is right for you, and the clarity is there, it may be appropriate to take a little risk and step a new way. ✨ . .

On B+G this week we’re talking about when the rules you’ve made for yourself fall apart. We often self-impose restrictions so that we don’t repeat a painful or unhealthy pattern in our lives, which is intelligent, but we also don’t want to stagnate or freeze out of fear. . . We are indeed “a season of becoming.” We are always changing and evolving and when we meet ourselves directly we will see that the rules for our past selves may no longer be necessary for the beings we are today. . .

Hello beautifuls! It’s new episode Tuesday and we are speaking about ‘When The Rules Don’t Apply.’ Have you ever created a rule for yourself so that you don’t go out of balance? Perhaps to compensate for an area you perceive to be a weak spot? Maybe to help you not eat that bowl of pasta, or not call that guy again or so you don’t spend too much money? I think many of us do our best to manage ourselves, and our lives, through these internal rules and restrictions, but what if they don’t apply anymore? . . What if “there is more to you than yesterday” and you’re making rules for a past version of yourself that no longer are necessary now? What happens when life calls for you to have a more nuanced exploration of how you approach these situations? . . That’s basically what’s happening right now in @brookethomas108 life, so we thought we’d talk about it! Hint, it involves a whole lot of discernment, trust and the willingness to “make a mistake.” . . Listen in and comment on iTunes. YouTube. Spotify. Google Play and more. . .

I laughed out loud when I heard @drsuemorter say this in a workshop I attended with her last Sunday. We had just recorded our episode on Spiritual Teacher Misconduct in which we shared that teachers who bypass their humanity, including the ego, may have unmet, unhealthy Conditioning they have no conscious awareness on. That’s why we gravitate towards teachers in what we once heard @lochkelly1 call “the human lineage.” Hearing this was a sweet reinforcement of what we were speaking about don’t you think? . .

Thanks @brookethomas108! This so resonates for me. Find your people who can live in the discomfort and the gray with you. Not everyone will be that person. Not everyone is ready. But growing is messy and uncomfortable and requires uncertainty, and vulnerability. Not all your peeps will be up for it. For me, being in weekly therapy and a weekly training group is necessary so I can figure out what's a weird unreal story (see post above) vs. the messy gray reality of life. We need those people we can call upon! . Defenses are real, peeps. Whether it is dissociating, or black and white thinking, or tone policing, or gaslighting, there are ways we protect ourselves from looking inward at the mess. Part of our work as healers is being willing to shed our defenses that we have used (and needed in the past) and figure out new ways of being . Find your people who want to live in the mess with you. ❤️❤️ Sarah ・・・ This quote never gets old for me. We are talking guru misconduct on the show this week. Errr, not the easiest topic!

This right here is sooo important: #Repost @blissandgritpodcast with @get_repost ・・・ To us, this feels like truth. People may use the word ego differently, but we see it as a part of the human body that holds the function of self-differentiation and self-protection. To imagine that the ego is standing in the way of our freedom creates an inner war. We attempt to kill off, or make wrong, an integral part of the human experience. We become afraid that the very thing we seek will result in a death of who we are until we become nothing but a slow-blinking version of a person. Moreover, a person internally divided cannot taste the very freedom they seek. . . If you listened to this week’s episode maybe you chuckled like we did when we lightheartedly said we follow a #multiplegurumodel. It’s true though, that without us planning for this, we’ve had the instinct and privilege to be drawn to sitting with, and learning from, many brilliant beings. For us, we find the most resonance with those who never shun or cast aside the human experience in favor of transcendence; that includes the body, the world of form and the ego. Our experience is our humanity is the path. We are spirits having a human experience. . . That’s why our spidey senses get tingly around those teachers or people who raise themselves up as beyond human. Or as having something that is not innate within every person.

This week’s episode discusses the phenomenon of misconduct that can happen in relationship with spiritual teachers. Many of us never had good role models of relationship, making it complex to know what a healthy vs unhealthy relationship can feel like. Additionally, the internal gatekeeper we call our central Nervous System runs on patterns of recognition, often allowing what is familiar to enter the gates and keeping what is foreign on the outside. . . All of this means that sometimes we won’t have the circuitry to discern when we are in an unhealthy or abusive relationship of any kind, especially with a revered spiritual figure who is in a position of authority. There’s a lot to the journey of finding new eyes, there is no simple answer to this, but perhaps this poem by @nayyirah.waheed gives us a beautiful pointer to rest into; if you are softer than before you say with them then maybe you’ve been loved. Conversely, if you notice chronic shame or judgement rising up afterwards then it might be a good time to be more curious about what’s being evoked in their presence, and if safety can actually be found there. . .

We’ve got a new episode up today on Guru Misconduct. . From shaming and judgment to outright abuse, there is a long history of spiritual figures engaging inappropriately with those they’re meant to guide. Yet these days it seems as if there is a new teacher exposed every few months. This is a big topic, that we could barely scratch the surface on, but in light of our recent discussions on relationships and safety, and because we do speak about so many spiritual teachers, we felt like it was time to add our voices to the conversation. We touch on how this can happen, but more so, what signs we may look for to identify an unethical, unsafe or imbalanced teacher. And why love is such an important ingredient on the path. . . In our discussion, we cover many topics including how a spiritual teacher can benefit us, Polyvagal theory, Co-dependency and the importance of recognizing the humanity in awakened teachers. . . We know that people within this community may have been harmed by a teacher (and most certainly some have been abused by others they trusted.) We want you to know that we love you, we support you and we value you. We hope we did some justice to this important topic with no simple answers. May we together help raise consciousness and eradicate abuse in all forms of relationship. . . , . #ramdass #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #nonduality #consciousness

The more difficult it is for us to trust life, the more entrenched we become in our ego defense structure. Repairing trust is a process that requires both love and a willingness to experience the wounding that ruptured our trust in the first place, causing us to move farther into the recesses of our protective personality. Just know that this is a common journey for many of us, you’re not alone, and there’s so much support available!!

We’ve been sharing on the concept of ‘basic trust’ as taught by A.H. Almaas. According to his teachings it is a rupture of trust early in life that leads to the crystallization of the ego structure. Most of us have experienced some rupture of trust in our childhood because unconditional love can be a rare commodity, but you can imagine how much more intensified it could be if your family or your culture treats you in degrading ways and you don’t have another form of healthy love to buoy you. . . We all have egos. The beautiful thing about this wisdom is that it can bring so much more compassion and softness into our lives. There’s a term in Spiritual Psychology called the Spiritual Superego. The Superego in Freudian Psychology is the watchdog that’s always analyzing and judging your behavior. As we enter a Spiritual path and collect teachings we can develop an inner voice that’s constantly judging our progress. Like “You can’t even surrender!” Or “Why can’t you just accept it?” . . As we’ve said over and over realization and healing is antithetical to states of shame. The more tenderness the more presence. . .

blissandgritpodcast. What is this magical element of basic trust, and how does one build it

What is this magical element of basic trust, and how does one build it? We’re discussing it all on this week’s episode. . . According to A.H. Almaas Basic Trust is an inherent quality of the Soul that allows for us to surrender, to accept, and to relax into the benevolent flow and guidance of life. However, our trust can be ruptured by circumstances in our lives leading to greater ego development and a sense that we are separated and must do it all for ourselves. . . When we first read this concept it filled in many blanks for us. It illuminated why some of us struggled to let go of control and despite our best intentions could not trust in the ultimate rhythm of life. Just like in any relationship, if trust is ruptured it’s a process of slowly and lovingly learning it’s safe to trust again. To us, this concept of basic trust ties in perfectly to what we’ve been sharing on the Nervous System and safety. . . What do you think? . .

blissandgritpodcast. This week is a flashback Tuesday! This episode, The Implications of Ba

This week is a flashback Tuesday! This episode, The Implications of Basic Trust, originally aired in September of 2018. We both remember this conversation as the beginning of what felt like a big shift for each of us, the kind of epiphany that seems so obvious, but is in fact quite huge: that we can trust this life. Even when it’s agony. Even when it’s joy. Even when it’s boring... . . By the time this began to be a real lived experience for us, we had sat with the phrase “trust your life” for at least a couple of years. So it was fun to listen back and note that understanding things and experiencing things are really different. . . It was also maybe the first time that we mentioned what felt like a side project at the time: connecting the dots between nervous system states and awakening. Something that now feels very front and center to our mission, and is something you have heard a lot about in the last few episodes. . . Basic Trust is a concept from A.H. Almaas that describes both why surrendering the ego can be challenging, and a pathway home to living from the Soul. We find this insight to be crucial to healing and awakening so are excited to share it with you again! We’ll be sharing quotes and wisdom from Almaas all week to help deepen your understanding of how to come home to yourself and your trust in life. . . Listen in via iTunes or any podcast player. Or YouTube.

We’ve heard the message that only “presence can dissolve the unconscious past in you” from many teachers we’ve interviewed in different ways. Of course we appreciated when Neelam pointed out that your nervous system must have the capacity to be present or it will be triggered by the past. As we awaken and heal we release conditioned patterns so we may be present in the sacred naked reality of the moment without projecting upon it. . . In A New Earth Eckhart Tolle goes on to explain that “It is not easy at first to be there as the witnessing Presence, especially when the ego is in survival mode or some emotional pattern from the past has become activated, but once you have had a taste of it, you will grow in Presence power, and the ego will lose its grip on you... All that is required to become free of the ego is to be aware of it, since awareness and ego are incompatible.” . . The beautiful thing to note is that we can build presence power. Just being aware of when you’re in survival mode is a degree of presence. So if you listened to last week’s episode and you thought ‘oh no I’m not being that present with people ‘ don’t worry! Presence is our nature, but it’s also a capacity that we grow over time and that continues to invite more freedom into our lives. . . . . . #eckharttolle #neelam #nervoussystem #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #nonduality #consciousness
