Jocelyn Is Grateful To Be Disciplined: A Successful Life Is A Disciplined Life

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Be Disciplined: A Successful Life Is A Disciplined Life
Some are for discipline. Other are against discipline. And for a while, I wasn't sure whether I was for it or against it but I've come to the clarity that I am absolutely for it. I not only believe that a successful life is a disciplined life but I believe that discipline is a part of nature, and if nature weren't disciplined, all of life would cease to exist! Also, what if I told you that you are disciplined? Everyday, you are disciplined. You are actually really good at being disciplined. The focus then, really, isn't how to become a disciplined person but to be consciously aware of and intentional about how you're disciplined and what you're being disciplined for. In this conversation, I share my personal reflections and realizations regarding discipline. We also expand on the benefits of discipline. My intention with this episode is to shift your perspective on discipline and gift you a deeper understanding!Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Hilary Jackendoff Is Grateful For Self-Inquiry: Turning Inward, Honoring Your Energy, & Being Your Own Teacher

Hilary Jackendoff Is Grateful For Self-Inquiry: Turning Inward, Honoring Your Energy, & Being Your Own Teacher
When life gets tough, most of the time, people just want easy answers. So they seek for answers outside of themselves - online, in relationships, at work. And while some external findings do bring forth temporary clarity, it's never the clarity that brings forth long-lasting results. The answers most of us are seeking are answers that are only found when we stop searching outside of us and turn inward. Two years living as a sannyasin (yogic monk) at an ashram and eight years fully immersed in a guru-based, Tantric Yogic tradition, Hilary Jackendoff ultimately came to the realization that she would never find the freedom she was seeking if she kept searching outside of her Self. In this conversation, we expand on the journey of turning inward and learning how to be (as well as the importance of being) our own teacher. Hilary is an Ashram-trained Yoga Nidra and Meditation Teacher, Teacher Trainer, and Human Design Reader. You can explore her services here and follow her on Instagram here.Other topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):seeking your purposereclaiming your powerhonoring your energysuffering in lifepracticing self-acceptancepracticing letting gothe importance of rest and relaxationyoga nidrahuman designSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Allow Her Self to “Start Over”: Pivoting In Relationships, In Career, In Life
Jan 3 2023
Jocelyn Is Grateful To Allow Her Self to “Start Over”: Pivoting In Relationships, In Career, In Life
One of the most important perspectives I gained in regards to "starting over" and pivoting in life is that... when we intuitively feel called to start over and pivot, it's a sign that we've completed a cycle and it's time to move onto a new one. This perspective of completion gifted me a sense of wholeness, which encouraged me to move onward and upward.I write "starting over" in quotations because I, personally, don't believe we're ever really starting over. I believe we're always starting over with experience and experience doesn't leave us empty handed in our endings and beginnings. I expand on this in this episode and I also expand on the various types of pivots I've experienced in the past couple of years, why fearing pivoting is rooted in lack and limitation, the weight of resistance leading to surrender, and more! I also offer some reflectional prompts and affirmations."At the end of the day, when all is said and done, if you want to grow and expand into your higher potentials, you have to allow your Self to start over. You have to allow your Self to pivot. You will only grow more burdened and confined when you resist your renewal. And you are so worthy of experiencing your higher potentials, in every aspect of your life."Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful For Her 28-Year-Old Self: Relaxing Is Powerful

Jocelyn Is Grateful For Her 28-Year-Old Self: Relaxing Is Powerful
🎙 "If my 28-year-old Self were to give a gift to my 29-year-old Self, I feel like that gift would be an open heart. I feel like that gift would be readiness. I feel like that gift would be a calm, regulated nervous system and a strong spiritual foundation." - JocelynWhen I turned 28, I published an episode expressing my gratitude for my 27-year-old Self. It only felt right to now publish an episode expressing gratitude to my 28-year-old Self. This episode is the very last episode I publish as my 28-year-old Self. *insert grateful tear hereAs I've reflected on my 28th year... at first it felt like an incredibly uneventful year but then as I continued to reflect, I realized that 28 was my year of calm. Deeply rooted calm, regardless of my external circumstances. And perhaps, that may be why it at first felt uneventful... because I was calm through it all. The version of me that is 28 really feels like a version that is a devotee. A devotee devoted to continuing to deepen her relationship with the Divine and strengthen her spiritual foundation. A devotee that was focused and determined and inspired to fully integrate and embody all the healing and awakening that was experienced in 27. I was calm as a spiritual practice. I was relaxing as a spiritual practice. And one of the lessons I learned is that relaxing is powerful. When I say relaxing, I am referring to relaxing as a form of surrender, as a form of faith. 28 was beautiful, even in its seeming uneventfulness. I am grateful. Thank you for listening to my reflections! And thank you, 28. 🤎Get a FREE one year supply of Vitamin D + 5 AG1 Travel Packs hereSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Grow Comfortable & Confident Expressing The Truth

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Grow Comfortable & Confident Expressing The Truth
🎙 "If you have to suppress a truth in order to keep the peace in a relationship or in an environment… then is the peace really present? Where is the peace in that?" - JocelynThis is basically a conversation about why expressing the truth is awesome - even when the truth you're expressing feels uncomfortable. Not long ago I had a moment where I felt called to express an uncomfortable truth to someone and, after a short time suppressing it, I expressed it. And I felt so grateful! I am so grateful to grow comfortable and confident expressing the truth. I am so grateful for all the moments I witness my Self choosing differently, choosing to express the truth out of love and breaking the unhealthy pattern of suppressing the truth out of fear (like I have many times in the past). If you're someone who struggles expressing the truth out of fear, this conversation is especially for you. 🤎Get a FREE one year supply of Vitamin D + 5 AG1 Travel Packs here Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):the fears of expressing the truththe relationships meant for youwhy expressing the truth is importantgetting clear on our values and desiresthe detriments of suppressing the truth"keeping the peace"the truth as an expression of loveSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Andy Nguyen Is Grateful To Be Blessed: Allowing Your Self To Change, Pursuing Big Ideas, & Learning From Failure
🎙 "If I stuck to my original goals, I wouldn't be where I'm at. I'm in a completely different field that I would've never imagined ten, twenty years ago." - Andy NguyenFrom real estate to streetwear to the food industry (and multiple other seemingly random ventures in-between), successful Serial Entrepreneur and Co-Founder, Andy Nguyen, has experienced an unpredictable yet divinely orchestrated entrepreneurial journey. A success that has come with many highs and lows, Andy has grown confident in allowing himself to change, trusting his gut, and pursuing big ideas as soon as the inspiration strikes (even if that big idea calls for a major pivot). With over twenty concepts built in just the last eight years in over sixty locations worldwide, Andy has (partly) learned that it's okay if and when plans change. He welcomes the evolutionary nature of life and has come to realize that, ultimately, his dreams always come true in ways beyond his scope of imagination. Some of the businesses Andy has Co-Founded include Afters Ice Cream, Dough & Arrow, Matte Black Coffee, Bored & Hungry, and Trill Burgers (which was named the best burger in America by Good Morning America). Food Network called Andy "the mash-up king in the food industry." You can follow him on Instagram here. This is an inspiring conversation that ultimately encourages you to be your true Self, follow your passions, and trust the divine unfoldment of your life! Failures contribute to your growth. Mistakes offer valuable lessons.

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Accept Grief As A Part Of Life: Moving Forward With Grief

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Accept Grief As A Part Of Life: Moving Forward With Grief
🎙 "Had I known that we all grieve differently and that you don’t really move on from grief, especially not when it’s a grief of a dear loved one, I feel like that would’ve lifted a lot of weight off my already weighted shoulders." - JocelynGrief is an inescapable part of the human experience. There is no escaping the experience of grief. That said, I feel it is important that we talk about it. I wasn't planning on publishing an episode on grief at this time but the unexpected death of our cat moved me to have this heart-to-heart conversation with you, as I know I'm not alone in feeling grief at this time. Over the past couple of years, we've experienced both individual and collective grief (of many sorts), so I pray this conversation bring you comfort in some way. I am grateful I've accepted grief as a part of life because the acceptance assisted my healing. After the loss of my father, I realized that that grief wasn't ever going to go away and the sooner I accepted that, the sooner I was able to move forward with my grief, rather than spending time efforting (and struggling) to move on from it.In this conversation, I'm sharing my personal reflections on grief, some of what I have learned, and more. Thank you for listening.🤎Get a FREE one year supply of Vitamin D + 5 AG1 Travel Packs here Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):responding to grief in different waysexperiencing shock from griefthe tendency to blame the Self/othersfeeling responsible to have solutions and answersbeing "good" "after" griefthe many feelings of grieflessons from griefgrieving "the wrong way"the kinds of griefthe causes of griefshowing up for someone who is grievingSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Brian "Z" Zisook Is Grateful To Be Alive: Staying True To Your Values, Confidently Pivoting, & Success In Business

Brian "Z" Zisook Is Grateful To Be Alive: Staying True To Your Values, Confidently Pivoting, & Success In Business
🎙 "The faster you move, the more mistakes that you make." - Brian "Z" ZisookAlthough staying true to your values and honoring your intentions may, at times, call for taking the longer route, it's worth it. It also contributes to you experiencing your true success! Brian "Z" Zisook Co-Founded two incredibly genuine (and successful) companies that internally and externally reflect being "for the people" and it's in large part because he and his team remained in alignment with their mission and vision. As we hear from Brian's story, though, sometimes as you're in alignment with your vision, you have to be willing to take risks, make sacrifices and adjustments as needed. Having a business partner that compliments you definitely helps. Brian's business partner for both DJBooth and Audiomack, David Macli, is the visionary, while Brian is the logistic. This complimentary duo makes for a successful entrepreneurial journey that we expand on in this conversation. Aside from business, we also expand on Brian's personal life as a son, as a father, as a husband and how all of those roles and aspects of his life contribute to his overall success. Unexpectedly being a caregiver for his mother at a young age, being mindful of his marriage, and birthing a daughter all shaped the caring, genuine personality that is Brian Zisook. This is a beautiful professional and personal conversation that is sure to inspire every creative, entrepreneur, and human navigating this simple, complex life.Visit Audiomack, an artist-first music streaming platform, hereVisit DJBooth, a source for hip-hop, rap & R&B,  here🤎Get a FREE one year supply of Vitamin D + 5 FREE AG1 Travel Packs here Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):hard work paying offupholding your values and intentionsmaking adjustments as neededthe biggest risk and sacrifice in businessthe importance of allowing your Self to slow downwhat makes a great business partnerabundance mindsetfear of growthfatherhood and brotherhoodhow becoming a father changes youhow caregiving your parent changes yououtgrowing friendshipsbeing grateful for the little, big thingsSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Know Having A Lot Of Ideas Is A Blessing, Not A Burden
Aug 30 2022
Jocelyn Is Grateful To Know Having A Lot Of Ideas Is A Blessing, Not A Burden
🎙 "Anything that you suppress will eventually feel like a burden, whether it’s an idea or an emotion or an experience or a thought." - JocelynIn our last one-on-one conversation (episode 71), I touched on being someone who has a lot of ideas and being someone who is grateful to have a lot of ideas. Ever since I can remember, I have always had a lot of ideas but it wasn't until a few years ago that I actually started seeing my abundance of ideas as a blessing and not as a burden. After years of pursuing my ideas and bringing them to life, I realized many reasons why having a lot of ideas is a blessing and I realized many reasons why having a lot of ideas can feel like a burden. And the truth is... our ideas are not the burden, we are. I feel called to have this conversation with you because I know there are many brilliant minds and hearts out there with lots of ideas but also lots of overwhelm, doubt, and confusion. How can you start to see your ideas as blessings, not burdens? What do you do when you have a lot of ideas? Where do you start? Which idea do you pursue first? What happens when you do start pursuing and bringing your ideas to life?There's a lot we can discuss in regards to this but this episode is a great place for us to start the conversation.🤎Get a FREE one year supply of Vitamin D + 5 AG1 Travel Packs here Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):why having a lot of ideas is a blessinghow to shift your perspective on your ideaswhy ideas can feel like burdensthe number one thing to do when you have a lot of ideaswhich idea to pursue firstthe blueprint of bringing ideas to lifeaffirmations for you and your ideasSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Tone Levels Is Grateful To Release: Overcoming Yourself, Being Comfortable With Discomfort, & Divine Feminine Healing

Tone Levels Is Grateful To Release: Overcoming Yourself, Being Comfortable With Discomfort, & Divine Feminine Healing
🎙 "How can we expect to enter the Temple of God when we can't even take care of the Temple that God gave us?" - Tone Levels I'd like to preface this description by saying that the substance and depth of this conversation is a pure reflection of the substance and depth my Self and my guest have explored within our Self. These beautiful, open, awakening conversations are expressed between two people when each of those two people have these kinds of conversations with their Self. Tone Levels, also known on socials as The Blood That Heals, is a Sacred Masculine that has come a long way "from operating fully as matter. He was in the streets, jail consecutively, letting his emotions control him, and his perception on life. Not realizing that his perception, his mind, the way that he thinks shapes his reality and his life." (in his own words) In this profound conversation (that I feel everybody needs to listen to), we expand on where he is ascending from, what he confronted in him Self, and so much of what he has expanded his conscious awareness about, such as: the importance of eating natural, whole foods, being Spirit and consciousness, honoring his body temple, divine masculinity and femininity, the power of cultivating sexual energy, how to forgive him Self, the journey being the destination, and ultimately, that in him overcoming him Self, he can overcome any and everything beyond him.This is truly such a special episode. Tap in with an open mind and heart!If you'd like to support Tone Levels and follow his journey, click here to explore his music, online shop, consultations, semen retention/ejaculation control course, and beyond.🤎Get a FREE one year supply of Vitamin D + 5 AG1 Travel Packs here Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):your Self is your greatest obstaclepracticing mind over matternot simply identifying as humanhow food impacts your energybeing uncomfortable so you can growtaking accountability for your journeyovercoming shame and guiltfalling in love with someones potentialattachment to expectationsemen retention & ejaculation controlbeing a man with a purposefinding your purposedefining GodSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Liberate Her Creativity & Accept How Her Creations Divinely Unfold
Aug 16 2022
Jocelyn Is Grateful To Liberate Her Creativity & Accept How Her Creations Divinely Unfold
🎙 "The best thing the Creator creates is the Creator." - Jocelyn We all have an inner-Creator that seeks to be liberated and empowered by pure love and pure passion. And I sincerely believe we are all being called to honor this truth and embrace, as well as unleash, the Creator within us.For the past almost couple of years I have been diligently and devotedly creating multiple creations, including this podcast. I've created the most content I have ever created in my entire life! When I first committed my Self to my tunnel vision and consistency, I sincerely believed my whole life was going to change within six months. I really thought that after six months of hardcore focus my whole life was going to be different and my creations were going to be responsible for that. And... my life did change - just not the way my ego expected. And when my egos expectations weren't met, I began to doubt my Self as a creator and doubt what I was/am creating.It's one thing to step into your power by creating what you feel called to create and it's another thing to allow what you're creating to be in a state of flow and divinely unfold in divine timing (with little to no expectations). I am so grateful to be arriving to this acceptance and surrender that allows what I create to simply Be and be enough. I am grateful to let go of expectations and sincerely liberate my creativity. I am grateful to be approaching and creating and Being in relationship with my visions differently. And I am excited to expand in conversation with you about this! fellow Creator.Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Be Healing Her Sense Of Self-Worth: Reflections, Affirmations, & Declarations Of A Worthy Life
🎙 "When you don’t wholeheartedly know what you are worthy of, you will settle for less." - Jocelyn I know I'm not alone in healing my sense of self-worth, in reflecting on my worthiness. What really triggered this for me was the pandemic. "Losing everything" had me feeling like I also lost my worth and my value. But this didn't wholeheartedly feel true to me. It didn't feel true to me that our worth and our value is dependent on our external circumstances, on our performance, on our achievements. And that's because that isn't the truth. Having this conversation about self-worth and expanding our conscious awareness about our own sense of self-worth is so important because our sense of self-worth impacts and influences our lives in so many ways we aren't even aware of. We need to know, wholeheartedly know, our worthiness is innate. We need to know, wholeheartedly know, we are worthy of love, of joy, regardless of what we have or don't have, regardless of who we are or are not. We are worthy. If you've been exploring your self-worth, if you too have been contemplating this or perhaps have felt called to - this conversation is especially for you. And I pray you walk away from this episode with more clarity, confidence, and comfort in your worth.Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):Worthiness being innateHow the environment we were raised in affected our self-worthBeing conditioned to believe you have to earn your worthinessWhy it's important we heal our sense of self-worthHow to heal your sense of self-worthInner-child healing & ancestral healingWhat happens when you heal your sense of self-worthWhat happens when you have a low sense of self-worthSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Christine Hernandez Is Grateful For This Life: Heart Opening Cacao, Remembering Your Roots, & Being A Healer
What began as a pursuit into the yogic path led to the introduction to cacao medicine and ceremony, which then led Christine Olivia Hernandez to a heart opening journey of spiritual, divine unfoldment. Christine did not know all that cacao would lead her to but she knew when she first experienced its medicine that she was called to deepen her relationship with it, explore it, and introduce others to its healing gift. Christine's life story is a testament of what happens when you answer your callings and journey with an open heart - healing happens, soul purpose fulfillment happens, sisterhood happens, love happens, divine partnership happens, ancestral and inner-child work happens, and beyond. Now a Cacao Ceremonialist, Author, and Founder of the Maltyox Method, Christine is devoted to honoring her Guatemayan Ancestors, enriching others lives by sharing her gifts, embodying gratitude, and continuing to walk the path to remembering. This is a beautiful conversation on the experience of divine, spiritual unfoldment, the empowerment that comes with remembering your roots, and how living life with an open heart leads you to your truth!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Know That It's Bigger Than Her: Expanding Your Perspective

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Know That It's Bigger Than Her: Expanding Your Perspective
🎙 "Don't count your Self out just because you think the Universe hasn't counted you in." - Jocelyn Is it just me or do you also feel the cosmic, Universal encouragement to take a step back & see the bigger picture? Is it just me or have you also felt called to expand your perspective & not be so fixated on what you see right in front of you? This episode is inspired by this encouragement, by this calling. Knowing that it's bigger than you is helpful. It helps you realize you're not alone, it relieves you from the weight of overwhelming your Self with unnecessary responsibility, it reminds you that you don't have complete control - ever, & motivates you. Too often we forget that it's bigger than us, it's bigger than what we see right in front of us, it's bigger than our current circumstances, it's bigger than the stories we know & tell ourselves. Too often we contribute to the limits of our beliefs, our perceptions, our narratives & it stunts our growth. It stagnates us. It distances us from the truth. In this episode, we are taking that moment to take a step back and see the bigger picture. I am sharing with you three ways it's bigger than you, why knowing it's bigger than you is helpful, reflectional prompts to get your contemplations flowing, & gratitude affirmations to bring our conversation full circle.Topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):Three ways it's bigger than youWhy knowing it's bigger than you is helpfulThe importance of knowing your true SelfThe value of knowing who you are notHow to discover your purposeMaking an impact on the worldAllowing your Self to explore & make mistakesNot taking things personallyRelationships that endSpiritual awakening & healingDivine timingSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!
