The experience of your ‘unconditioned self’ lives outside of your thought stream. . . Whether you realize your true nature via the heart as John Prendergast (ep. 63) taught us, or via knowing yourself as awake awareness through glimpse practices like @lochkelly1 (ep. 82) shared, or through bringing your nervous system into the here and now as this week’s guest Neelam spoke about, you can trust that there is something fundamental within you that has never been touched or obscured by your conditioning. Find your way in. . . You can listen to all of our podcast episodes via @itunes. Spotify.

We loved this wisdom from our conversation with Neelam. She shared that tenderness is transcendence. . . It reminded us of when @lochkelly1 spoke about waking up, waking out and waking in; if your heart doesn’t open you’re not fully awake. I read something recently about what one author called a ‘survivor psychic’; someone who opens up to great clarity and seeing but still remains shut down in their heart. It’s important to be aware that just because we have some vision it doesn’t mean we are fully awake, and therefore can still fall into patterns of making harsh assessments or judgements with ourselves or others. You know that we are always saying that shame can’t heal. That’s because the frequency of truth is tenderness, and it’s aligning with truth that drops the veils of the conditioning that are creating suffering. . . As you walk this unfolding path we hope you always remember to hold yourself (and hopefully others when possible) first and foremost with tenderness. 💗 . .

blissandgritpodcast. I can’t recall how we came across Neelam, our guest this week, but wha

I can’t recall how we came across Neelam, our guest this week, but what drew us to her teachings was a course she taught on Awakening and the Nervous System- which you know is a passion of ours. Actually our first episode on Awakening and the Nervous System aired almost 2 yrs ago on 9/17. At that time we were already exploring the impact that the limbic brain and nervous system could be having on our own health and state of being, and while we were noticing the correlations between our physiology and our capacity for presence and clarity, we came across this quote from @mattkahn1 “the ego is the imaginary identity of an overactive nervous system.” Something about that view clicked it all into place. We’ve been deep into the exploration of how patterns of reactivity and conditioning that are stored in our minds and bodies could be leading to suffering and clouded perception ever since. . . We are grateful that many of our guests have added to this conversation over the last two years, including @amodamaa , @lisa_wimberger and Lynn Marie Lumiere. To us, this conversation with Neelam offers a fundamental understanding of the relationship between awakening and physiology, between the arising past and the ability to stay present. It is an in depth discussion of how our capacity to be present (and sustain awakening) is directly linked to the capacity of our Nervous System, and what to do about it. . . If you are interested in the correlation between your physiology and your state of mind this is a must listen. . . Also, if you are also mind blown by this topic comment below! It’s fun to hear we are not the only geeks 😉😂 . You can listen in by searching Bliss and grit on any podcast player or YouTube. Also it is episode 98 at www.blissandgrit.com . . . . . #neelam #mattkahn #nervoussystem #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #healing #meditation #nonduality #consciousness #spirituality

It’s Tuesday and that means fresh wisdom coming your way! In today’s flashback episode we are sharing our conversation with teacher Neelam. Neelam is a direct disciple of Papaji, and has been holding satsang internationally since 1996. She will be back on the podcast sometime this fall so stay tuned. . . We were eager to bring Neelam on the show because she has very clear teachings on the relationship between awakening and the nervous system, which you know is a favorite topic of ours! We get into helpful detail about what Awakening and the capacity of the nervous system have to do with one another, and what trauma actually is from her view. . . One of the other big gifts of this conversation is her discussion of what true freedom is, and how we can tell the difference between when our past is arising- playing out it’s habitual patterns and using it’s built up momentum- vs when we are actually present. She discusses how to get out of the grooves of the past so we can be here now. This is huge for transformation, because as Neelam says in the episode “freedom is independence from the arising past.” . . Lastly, you will so appreciate how Neelam spoke about tenderness and kindness as the true marker of if we are in the present, and how treating ourselves with tenderness can be the real alchemical agent. . . You can find more of Neelam’s work at www.neelam.org . There is so much goodness packed into this conversation.

Being told that we are someone’s morning coffee date is one our favorite things. @blissandgritpodcast was created because we were 2 good friends who didn’t have anyone else to speak with about these big, deep, mystical things that were happening in our lives. We thought if we felt alone in it others must too. So we wanted to both stimulate conversation between friends who listened together, and become a point of contact and dialogue for people who didn’t yet have a circle they could chat with about human potential and awakening. . . We truly love that we are part of your conversations and your community. We heard a story from a listener the other day that they overheard two women in a chiropractors office talking about B+G and they got to join in. How cool is that?! 😍 . . We are honored that we get to be a part of your lives and your routines!! And we love coffee. 💛 . If you have a friend you talk about B+G with tag them below. Let’s shout out all the friends we get to have these talks with! And if we are your best coffee friends say hi too so we can connect with all our coffee fans. . . We love you! @brookethomas108 + @vanessascotto . . 😂 and I just realized my poor grammar lol. “Their” 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 . . #spiritualcoffeeclub #blissandgritpodcast #spiritualfriends #awakening

Who else relates? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Following the theme of Conditioning in this week’s episode, this quote is a good reminder that sometimes we must tap the courage to just make a different choice. Yet to us, it seems that it’s not just courage required, it’s capacity. The capacity of the body to make a choice that feels unfamiliar or that was labeled as scary by the conditioned brain. , . With love and awareness we all can build the courage and capacity to move in a new direction so that we can experience a genuine future; a life beyond the pain or misguidance of the past. .

We are sharing our episode ‘What if it’s all Conditioning?” this week on B+G. This @enlightened_mindz_ quote from last week’s episode feels true to what we have experienced in our own lives on the path of gradual awakening. . . We have experienced how conditioning is stored at the level of mind in beliefs and default modes, at the level of body in fascia, muscles, cells and nervous system patterns of defense, at the level of energy in where it flows and where it stagnates, where it’s open and where it’s disconnected. We believe we are holistic beings and that intervention is useful at all levels. That’s part of why we don’t put our full allegiance on one modality. Our dedication is towards whatever works to alleviate conditioning, and the unnecessary suffering it creates, with the most efficacy, love and grace. . . We know that there is life beyond your past, life beyond reactivity. That you can have a future that’s not determined by what you’ve experienced or absorbed. That’s our personal mission and our mission at Bliss+Grit. We are so glad you’re here on the journey with us! 💗 . . You can listen to this week’s episode and over 100 others on iTunes. Google Play, Spotify, YouTube and more. . . Big thank you to @brooke__brasfield for capturing these words from the episode for us! 🙏💗 . . #healingtrauma #nervoussystem #davidthomas #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #consciousness

After our conversation with David Thomas we both had this deep revelation of just how conditioned- or as David said, how domesticated- we all are. We are conditioned by the culture we are raised in, by media, by our families, our peers, our religions and even by the language we speak. It was a trip for us to explore how much of our reality is based on the conditioning we absorbed and inherited. . . That’s what we got into in this week’s flashback episode called ‘What If It’s All Conditioning?’ What we have come to is that it’s our conditioning that keeps us from knowing the truth and beauty of who we are, so having the opportunity to recognize how many of your thoughts and beliefs are just a manifestation of a broken culture or unhealthy lineage is a powerful step towards freedom. . . Join the conversation by listening via your favorite podcast player or YouTube, then share your thoughts here. . . Have you seen through some painful conditioning in your own life? We certainly have! . . . . . . . . #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #spirituality #consciousness #healing #empath

We live in a psychotic society in that we are out of touch with reality. As Jeannie Zandi says “we are each other’s.” We are interconnected. Yet the fabric of many modern societies is based on dualism, separation, survival of the fittest, power-over, delusion, disconnection, dissociation, and misunderstanding. . . This week we shared our conversation with David Thomas who goes into how societal conditioning can influence the way we think, see, hear, feel, believe and experience reality. . . As we heal from our personal experiences we realize that we must also heal from the wounding acquired via society and the collective unconscious. . .

Today we are re-sharing our episode with guest David Thomas called Allowing Heaven. We were both immediately struck by what a bright light David is. He has a very clear way of pointing out what conditioning actually is- how we are programmed and how we lose connection to life. . . His insight can really rock your world in this talk if you sit with it- it definitely rocked ours. (Next week we will share our follow up episode on all the ways it impacted us.) . . He speaks about the dark times we are living in as a result of how we have been forced to shut down our hearts, and about how when we are the most broken we are closest to God- and can use that as a way immediately into God. . . Listening to David you can really feel what it means to be a Being who is living from the perspective of eternity- who is out of the way we think about time, and who understands the creator natures we all have at core. It was an absolute joy to talk with him. . . David is a self-realization teacher, speaker, and writer living in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Through the practice of Self-inquiry and meditation, he has acquired a deeper understanding of the inner self and true liberation. David now seeks to support individuals in their pursuit of self-realization through his writing and speaking. The insights he shares within his videos, quotes, and poems are created to help nurture the healing of individuals seeking release from their pain and suffering. All of his teachings come from his personal experience, so he gives an inside perspective from being lost in ignorance to finding the truth within. . You can find more of his work via his YouTube channel, Enlightenedmindz or follow him on FB or @mysticmillennialz .

I’ve got one more week to drink in the magic of this city. Sure I won’t miss the loudness, the construction, the intensity or sweating on subway platforms, but what I’ve seen in life is that those little things fade away against the beauty of greater moments of love and connection. Like the morning walks in the park where I watched people move their bodies or stretch out in the sun, the gorgeous sunsets on my roof overlooking all of manhattan, the laughter and conversations I’ve had with friends and family, and of course the amazing meals I’ve had the pleasure of eating. Our minds tend to overemphasize the discomfort or struggle, especially if you have a nervous system that forgets safety, but in the end it’s the richness of experience that gives life meaning and joy, and we can consciously put our attention there too. 💗 . . . . . . #brooklyn #nyc #gratitude #lifecoach #neuroscience #podcaster #podcast #blissandgritpodcast

Last night I was speaking with a friend about times when we got internal signals that there was something that needed our attention that we ignored. Really, we didn’t consciously ignore anything, we innocently misunderstood the cause. For example, you develop anxiety while in relationship with someone and you think it’s just your age or your diet. Or you start getting stomach aches all the time at your new job and assume it’s because you can’t handle the pressure, not because your boss is a narcissist triggering your father wound. In retrospect we could see situations where our inner guidance was screaming ‘something is hurting’ here and we didn’t know how to trust that or listen more closely to hear what actually was calling for attention. . . One of the benefits of experience is now I have enough perspective to see that if I’m really triggered- mentally, emotionally or physically, something is calling for my attention. I no longer blame myself, think I just have to adapt or grow up, or even blame others. I simply recognize there’s a message in this for me- either a painful wound/belief that’s seeking to be held in love, or a signal to change the circumstances I’m in- and I stop, drop and listen inwardly till I can truly hear my inner knowing. . . Anyone else relate? 💗 . . . . . . . #johnprendergast #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #nonduality #consciousness

This week we have guest @willpyethegratitudeguy on the podcast speaking about his latest book The Gratitude Prescription. We’ve all heard gratitude is helpful right? The research on gratitude supporting mental and physical health is unequivocal. Yet how many people are using gratitude practices? And what happens when you intellectually know you have a lot to be grateful for but you’re not feeling it? . . In this two part conversation we are getting deeper into the nitty gritty of gratitude. How it’s life changing, maybe even life saving, how you can deepen into a practice with it, and why it can be a struggle. In part 2 Will even guides a practice you can use at home. . . .

Those of us who seek our true nature can’t really help ourselves; we just notice our own ego patterns so clearly and we can’t abide there lol. What can happen though, is that as we have glimpses and awakenings our safety conditioning can kick in and begin to narrate the experience through ITS lens. We can imagine the space of emptiness to be one of abandonment instead of freedom. Or believe that as we shift it will further our sense of aloneness. We can find ourselves backing away from embodying realizations as our safety patterns scream outdated interpretations at us. Yet, genuine safety is found in opening to life and embodying truth most fully. . . Once I had the most powerful experience of safety when I landed fully in my body at Judith Blackstone’s training. It became clear that my subconscious safety strategy had it all backwards- safety was being fully present, not in hiding energetically. I have noticed since that even this is a realization that continues to deepen and unfold- I didn’t just arrive and stay. But now I know. Anyone else have an experience like this? . . The truth is these are just words until you have an experience of it, but sometimes just knowing that we can fear the very opening that creates the most safety can give us insight into flipping the old pattern and moving towards the truth. . . To hear more from John Prendergast listen to this week’s episode. You’re truly going to love him. . . . . . #johnprendergast #blissandgritpodcast #awakening #transformation #Podcast #spiritualawakening #spiritualpodcast #meditationpodcast #meditation #nonduality #consciousness

This is so beautiful isn’t it? Yet we can’t make ourselves trust life, it’s more of an opening and an amplification of receptivity that allows us to experience of life as benevolent and trustworthy. What we’ve seen is that to genuinely trust life- which means all of it, whatever is arising in the field, easy or challenging- there needs to be a basic sense of safety present in the body; especially safety with being open and receptive. But we can have glimpses of this in every moment, which helps tremendously to build that internal knowing. . . This week we are re-sharing our conversation with John Prendergast. His wisdom and guidance are so supportive of leading you to access the space of your heart. When we touch into our heart center we see that not only can we trust life, but we are life, and therefore we can deeply trust ourselves as well. 💗 . . To listen in go to iTunes, Spotify, YouTube or your favorite podcast player. . . .

One pearl from our conversation with John Prendergast that we really appreciate was that we all have a “spark of inner radiance” within; a part of ourselves that arises from truth and love. He pointed us towards how to connect with the part of ourselves that implicitly knows our wholeness, that already feels connected to something greater. . . We are all so familiar with the aspects of ourselves that are in pain or that feel unworthy, deficient or broken. We can take these parts of ourselves to be who we are; which creates a most painful state. When you access the part of you that knows different, that trusts in your basic goodness, something profound can shift. You can wrap your fear within the truth of the love, the inner spark of radiance, that is right there inside of you. . . We have both seen firsthand through coaching people that everyone can access the wisdom of their heart. It’s always right there just waiting to be heard. 💗 . .
