12 | A Nice Guy, Darkly
"Sometimes I think all I want to find is a mean guy and make him be nice to me. Or maybe a nice guy who's a little bit mean to me. But they're usually too nice too soon, or too mean too long."~Carrie FisherSome say nice guys finish last.  Others say that nice guys are running a different race, and that nice guys are the tortoises in a world where being a hair is a guilty want among all men.  Here is the quandary: if being a nice guy is so good, why are nice guys never nice to themselves?  If you can't give yourself love, how in the world can you give it to someone else?  Maybe… Nice guys, as people sling that slur, aren't so nice after all.  For your consideration...In this episode, we're talking about what it means to be a "nice guy".  And if you identify as one, we talk about why and how you may want to consider evolving into your true greatness and power, so you can give your light like never before!  Men's Transformational Coach Tim Neal is my guest, and we dissect this idea of the behavioral virus: "Nice Guy Syndrome".  We both talk about our experiences, including personal identifications with it, as well as our experiences in helping other people through this not-so-nice behavioral parasite.We do talk a lot of testosterone, and there's plenty of gold for women in this discussion, too.  People-pleasing -- a hallmark of being a "nice guy" -- is universal to everyone; and so are the healing techniques we can all employ.  Our goal is for everybody to become more self-actualized and self-empowered.Leveling up, expanding, and becoming more aware all require us to look in the mirror, and see the darkness within us that may unconsciously be running us.  There is a lot we will not like, and we don't have to.  Once we accept all of that for which we are shamed, then we unleash our ultimate potential, and no one can hold anything over our heads again.  This is how you regain and keep your power.  And what a gift to the world this is, for you to be in your truest and highest power.  Yeah, buddy, let's go!Episode ResourcesFollow Tim Neal on Instagram | @timneal_menscoachFollow Tim Neal on Facebook | facebook.com/tim.neal.ausThe World of Naked RainOfficial Facebook PageDiscover Your Light Private Facebook GroupFollow Us on IG | @nakedrainexperienceFollow Stan on IG | @StanTheOldFashionedManEmail | Stan@nakedrainexperience.comThe Naked Rain Experience Official WebsiteRecorded, Edited and Produced byRain Soundworks

11 | Waving the Red Flag
"I don't trust people who don't love themselves and tell me, 'I love you.'  There is an African saying which is: 'be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.'"~Maya AngelouWe are all so quick to judge others based on the shortcomings we project onto them, where the reality is that we should be shining that spotlight on ourselves, and into our deepest shadows. When we love ourselves completely, we love others completely, and without expectations. We will even love them enough to let them go if that serves us better. Are you willing to be in that spotlight?This week in a week devoted to dating, I'm here with Men's Motivation Coach Tawny Loveless, author of the amazing dating and personal development book Red Flags Explained: A No Bullshit Guide to Identifying and Understanding 69 Red Flags in Dating.  She is going to give us all a crash-course on what to look out for while you're seeking out your perfect match. We dive into everything, from what red flags are, why they matter, what they are (and are not), and what YOUR potential red flags might look like. Yes, you have them too.  Aren't you're glad someone is making you aware of these self-development opportunities?We touch on a lot of factors of why we develop red flags, and how we can see our own flags, and do something about them.  Our own flags may give us a window into our own inner world, personal woundings, and opportunities for growth.Around here, we always say to fall in love with yourself.  Wouldn't you like to know what your own red flags are so you know what you're getting into?  Let's go!Episode ResourcesTawny Loveless Official Website | tawnyloveless.comRegister for Tawny's Ladies-Only Masterclass: 10 Things Men Want You to KnowPurchase Red Flags Explained (Non-Affiliate Link)Follow Tawny on Instagram | @tawnylovelessFollow Tawny on Facebook | facebook.com/tawny.lovelessFollow Tawny on TikTok | @tawnylovelessThe World of Naked RainOfficial Facebook PageDiscover Your Light Private Facebook GroupFollow Us on IG | @nakedrainexperienceFollow Stan on IG | @StanTheOldFashionedManEmail | Stan@nakedrainexperience.comThe Naked Rain Experience Official Website

10 | The Art of Showing Up
"Research suggests that people are typically unaware of the reasons why they are doing what they are doing, but when asked for a reason, they readily supply one."~Daniel GilbertAwareness is the gateway to consciousness.  When we live our lives in autopilot, we truly miss out on the meaning of life, and the opportunities to bask in the light we desire.  Bringing consciousness and purpose into how we live is the key to seeing where we need to grow, and appreciate where we are.I'm joined by Spiritpreneur and Success Coach Samantha Gillis for a very exploratory episode that asks us how we're showing up in every area of our lives.  Samantha and I go deep in our personal experiences of how our past decisions informed us to showing up better for our successes today, and how we evolved to ensure that we keep on our desired paths.  Samantha is an extraordinarily gifted success and mindset coach, and she spins a fantastical tale of how she went from acting and modelling into empowering people like you and me in their everyday lives.  We learn how to flex our "awareness" and "consciousness" muscles, so that we can stay in control of our boats as we sail through life.  This is an episode that you will not want to miss.Episode ResourcesSamantha's Free Gifts | refashionyourlife.comFollow Samantha on Instagram | @magicbysamanthaThe World of Naked RainOfficial Facebook PageDiscover Your Light Private Facebook GroupFollow Us on IG | @nakedrainexperienceFollow Stan on IG | @StanTheOldFashionedManEmail | Stan@nakedrainexperience.comThe Naked Rain Experience Official Website

8 | Shadows of Our Darkness
"Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness."~Anne FrankFor every light we chase and for every light we cast, a shadow is revealed. We are meticulously instructed to hide from our own shadows, even when we're completely lost within them. It's only when we can see and embrace our shadows, can we understand and love all of who we are, and step into our ultimate power. Who is hiding in your shadow? They will be your greatest ally in your quest to shine your light. Embodiment Coach James Bansbach joins me this week to discuss the importance of owning one's darkness, and drawing a loving light to everything we've kept in our shadows.  This is my most important and passionate episode to date, as we hit on the foundation of taking full ownership of, and loving everything about yourself, as that will lead you to your ultimate power, and open yourself to your most authentic experiences.  Each and every one of us has been systematically taught to loath a portion of our personalities.  We dive in super deep, pulling from both of our collective experiences to show you that your darkness can be your best friend, and your staunches ally in achieving your dreams.Episode ResourcesJames Bansbach's (Facebook Profile)Bold Life Brotherhood - ROC (Facebook Page)@JamesBansbach_Coaching (Instagram)Books Mentioned (All Links are Non-Affiliate)The Way of the Superior Man, by David DeidaThe Hidden Spirituality of Men, by Matthew FoxThe Dark Side of the Light Chasers, by Debbie FordAn Uncommon Bond, by Jeff BrownThe World of Naked RainThe Naked Rain Experience (Official Facebook Page)Discover Your Light (Our Private Facebook Group)@nakedrainexperience (Official Instagram)@StanTheOldFashionedMan (Stan's Instagram)stan@nakedrainexperience.com (Stan's email)nakedrainexperience.com (Official Website)

6 | Reframing Our Past
"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."~ Wayne DyerYour imagination is powerful.  It can shift your perspective and change your reality.  Whether you're aware of it, or not.  Why not take advantage of knowing its power, and create the life of your dreams?Astrid Spencer, Clinical and Metaphysical Hypnotherapist, joins us this week to take us on a trip through inner space, temporal shifts, and shattering our limiting beliefs using the power of our imaginations.  Is our past really ancient history?  Is our past really impossible to change?  The answer may surprise you.  While the sheer complexity of our minds may seem like a hindrance to healing from past hurts, we can actually use it to our advantage and trick our minds into reprogramming how we interface with our histories.  Astrid will explain how hypnotherapy can help you shift your perspective on your past.  Plus, she has an amazing breakthrough session at the end!WARNING: There is a meditation session towards the end of the show.  Please do not close your eyes or allow yourself to fall into a trance while operating motor vehicles or machinery.  Please be responsible.Episode Resourcesupwardspiralhypnosis.com (Astrid's Official Website)Gate of Possibilities Meditaton (Astrid's Gift)The World of Naked RainThe Naked Rain Experience (Official Facebook Page)Discover Your Light (Our Private Facebook Group)@nakedrainexperience (Official Instagram)@StanTheOldFashionedMan (Stan's Instagram)stan@nakedrainexperience.com (Stan's email)nakedrainexperience.com (Official Website)

"Our shared human experience is based on dualities.  There's Good and Evil.  Masculine and Feminine. Love and indifference.  Light…  And dark…  Angels… and Monsters.  It's our natural tendency to want to choose one of these dualities over the other, when in reality, we are all spectrum.  All of our manifestations are here to serve us and inform us.  Even our deepest, darkest, monsters.  We need it all to make the most of our experiences and live to our fullest potential.  That includes our lightness and our darkness.  It's about time we face our monsters, and hear what they have to say.  They may very well hold the secret to our greatest individual gifts, and unlock our latent superpowers."This week's episode, I chat with Spencer Burnett about using our inner "monsters" to empower us to get stuff done, and help us turn our dream into our reality.  Spencer is the founder of an all-encompassing productivity and life management system called "Flow State".  We touch on everything from little cheats we can use to stay focused on our priorities, all the way to the relationships we have with our inner demons, and how we can make them work for us, instead of being a slave to them.Episode ResourcesFlow State Training for Entrepreneurs (Facebook Group)The World of Naked RainThe Naked Rain Experience (Official Facebook Page)Discover Your Light (Our Private Facebook Group)@nakedrainexperience (Official Instagram)@StanTheOldFashionedMan (Stan's Instagram)stan@nakedrainexperience.com (Stan's email)nakedrainexperience.com (Official Website)
