Cracking Open with Molly Carroll

Molly Carroll, MA, LPC

We all have moments in our lives when we are cracked open, brought to our knees, and have to really discover who we are authentically at our core. It could have been a death of a loved one, getting thrown in jail, bullied in grade school, or hitting rock bottom with our addiction. Whatever your traumatic moment it changed you forever in the way you live, parent, work, and connect to others. Join Molly Carroll licensed therapist, TED speaker, published author, corporate speaker, and coach as she shares the stories of actors, athletes, thought-leaders, healers, teachers, and warriors and how their “cracking open” moment changed their lives and will change your life too.

Episode #17: Discover How Sobriety, Death, and Service Taught Life Coach Scott Anderson About the True Meaning of Life
Have you ever had a moment when you know you are in the presence of a true sage?  Well, that is exactly how I felt in the presence of Scott Anderson. In today’s episode, Scott will openly share about his family's three generations' struggle with alcohol and drug addiction, and how these addictions can not only cause deep suffering, but also profound humility and grace. Scott not only openly talks about his “cracking open” moments but also shares with us how his personal story has brought so much more depth to his professional life. Scott built 3 for-profit businesses, including an agency that he ran for over 25 years and later sold to his employees. He has combined his business acumen with his experience as a licensed mental health therapist to establish the not-for-profit, AtEaseUSA.org, which develops and deploys leading-edge PTSD treatment technology in partnership with Tel Aviv University and the Israeli government. Scott’s experience in business is matched by his premier training in coaching and therapy. He trained at the preeminent Coaches Training Institute and is certified by the International Coaching Federation (IFC).He also graduated summa cum laude with a master’s degree from the University of Nebraska School of Clinical Counseling. Yes, Scott has all the degrees and accolades but, in the end, this sage teaches us that what matters most in life is making a daily choice around asking yourself one question, “How am I going to live knowing everything one day is going to go away?” Today I would invite you to live by soaking in Scott’s story about sobriety, survival, and most importantly love.Learn more about Scott Anderson here: https://doubledareyou.us/Find Scott on Social: Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/scottandersonms/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scottandersonmentalhealth/Learn more about Molly Carroll here: https://molly-carroll.com/Get your free Body Emotion Map: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/mapFind me on SocialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mollycarrollinc/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Molly-Carroll-Inc-420796934793507

Episode #16: Discover How Olympian Kelly Gunther Comes Back From What ‘Could Be a Tragic’ Yet ‘Turned Triumphant’ Story
“It’s not an easy road and there will be days you will not want to get out of bed and face your challenges… but through your struggles, your mess will become your message.” This quote is from our incredibly vulnerable and raw podcast guest today, Kelly Gunther, an Olympian skater known as the Comeback Kid for all the times she has had to persevere and come back from a challenge.Kelly’s comebacks included everything from a learning disability, an absent alcoholic father, and several challenges she faced in her skating career.  In the 2010 Olympic trials, Kelly appeared to make the United States speed skating team but was bumped after another skater was granted a re-skate.  Then there was that one time she nearly lost her entire foot on the ice.  In March 2010, Kelly fell during a race and suffered a double-compound fracture that nearly severed her foot from her leg. After intensive rehab, she was miraculously able to return to skating and persevered to set two personal best times in November 2011. She made the 2011–2012 World Cup team and placed third in the 1000 meters at the 2011–2012 national championships.  By 2014, against all odds, she achieved her dream as a long-track speed skater for the U.S. Olympic Team. At the 2014 U.S. Olympic trials, she skated her personal best time of 1:16.43 in the 1000 meters to place fourth and make the Olympic team.But Kelly’s story goes way beyond being an incredible Olympian. Her story is one of a human being who wakes up every morning with the mantra “life is not always easy but you can come back from anything” – and Kelly does it with honesty, strength, and a “glass half full” attitude.  This is probably one of the most emotionally vulnerable stories I have experienced on the Cracking Open podcast.  Kelly really opened her whole self up in this interview, and you will deeply feel this in her message of turning tragedy into triumph which is inspiring us and millions of hearts around the globe.Learn more about Kelly Gunther here:WikipediaLinkedInInstagramTeam USALearn more about Molly Carroll here:WebsiteGet your free Body Emotion MapFree Monthly TrainingFind me on Social:InstagramFacebook

Episode 13: Elizabeth Lesser, Super Soul Sunday Guest and New York Times Bestselling Author Helps Us Uncover How Birth and Death Can Be Our Greatest Teachers
Welcome to our first episode of Season 2 of the Cracking Open Podcast!I first came across Elizabeth Lesser’s work about 11 years ago after my dad died. I was in deep grief, and someone told me about her book Broken Open.  While reading it, every word made me feel like I was going to survive the death of my dad.  Broken Open radically changed my life and it is my go-to gift that I give to anyone who I know is going through a difficult transition in their life.  After reading her book, I attended the Women & Power Conference led by Elizabeth, at the Omega Institute, which she co-founded in 1977.  It was there that I met Elizabeth in person for the first time, and I immediately felt her deep wisdom and open heart. To me, Elizabeth’s life is a beautiful metaphor of the phoenix rising.  She opens her heart and story to all of us around how she has been broken open (the ending of her marriage, the death of her sister) and how these burning moments have invited her to die in order to rise from their ashes.Elizabeth is a New York Times bestselling author of several books, including Cassandra Speaks: When Women are the Storytellers, the Human Story Changes; Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow and Marrow: Love, Loss & What Matters Most and The Seekers Guide.As if this wasn’t enough, in 2008 she helped Oprah Winfrey produce a 10-week online seminar based on Eckhart Tolle’s book A New Earth. The webinar was viewed by more than 8 million people worldwide.  She’s also a frequent host on Oprah’s Soul Series, a weekly radio show on Sirius XM, and a guest on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday.  In 2011, she gave a popular Ted Talk called Take “the Other” to Lunch, a call for civility and understanding as we negotiate differences as human beings. I could spend hours just talking about her incredible accomplishments. But to me, Elizabeth is ultimately a woman who can ignite one’s soul.  To not only feel seen and heard but also to be a better human being on this spiritual journey we call life. Please enjoy this incredible conversation.  Get yourself a cup of tea, grab a notebook and pen, and gift yourself this hour to soak in Elizabeth’s storytelling, her wisdom, and her life.  Welcome to Season 2!  I’m so glad you have arrived.Learn more about Elizabeth Lesser here: https://www.elizabethlesser.org/Learn more about Omega Institute here:https://www.eomega.org/Learn more about Molly Carroll here: https://molly-carroll.com/Get your free Body Emotion Map: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/mapFree Monthly Training: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/freetrainingFind me on SocialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mollycarrollinc/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Molly-Carroll-Writes-420796934793507/

Episode 12: Learn How Terminal Cancer Taught Successful Wealth Manager Bill Valentine the True Meaning of Life.
Many people would say that the most precious gift anyone can give is their time.  My guest on this week's episode, Bill Valentine, knows this better than most because he's in the midst of stage four terminal pancreatic cancer.Bill is the only podcast guest that I didn't do extensive research on prior to his interview. I didn't fill up my head with all the things he's done up to this point, or all of the awards and accolades he's achieved along the way.  Not because they aren't plentiful, but because I didn't want to be in my head during this interview.  I wanted to simply meet him heart to heart.As it turns out, Bill felt that my lack of research was very apropos because one of the things he's realized is that who he really is actually has nothing to do with what he had accomplished up to the point that he was diagnosed with cancer.  He no longer wants to talk about his past professions and accomplishments. It doesn't matter to him anymore because as it turns out, it's not WHO he is at all.So who is Bill Valentine?  He is a father and a husband. And his entire focus is now on the most important relationships in his life, and everything he does is filtered through that identity and priority.Bill shares with us what his days are like, what he's been learning throughout his experience with cancer, and what he's been teaching his four boys as he tries to pass on everything he wants them to learn from him in a much shorter timeframe than he had hoped he would have.He was deeply honest with us about his experience of participating in his own living funeral over the last few years, as so many people have come forward to tell him what he has meant to them in their life, and how much they love him.  He has felt deeply loved and grateful to have these meaningful connections with people from all aspects of his life.  Through this beautiful process, he has learned to receive love and that he is, and always has been, enough.Bill shares with us how psilocybin treatment not only helped him come to terms with his diagnosis but also helped him learn that the whole meaning of life is to give and receive love.This is the legacy he hopes to leave behind."It shouldn't take a terminal disease for you to wake up to your obligation to live a full life, and at the center of that are other people." ~ Bill ValentineI am deeply honored that he gave us this gift of his precious time.  I think Bill will be one of our greatest teachers on this podcast and it was a blessing to be with him.Bill is a precious gift to us all.  Learn more about Bill Valentine here.Learn more about Molly Carroll here.Get your free Body Emotion Map.Free Monthly Training.Find me on Instagram or Facebook.

Episode 11: Discover How Mormonism, the Tribeca Film Festival, and Yoga Helped Create One of the Only Conscious Media Companies With Trina Wyatt
Have you ever had a deep voice telling you to move cities, change your job or invent something new for the world? But you don’t know what to do to get out of your fears and into your heart?Well, you are not alone. My guest today, Trina Wyatt, has been there several times. She is not only our teacher today on Cracking Open about following your inner voice, but she's also mixing it with degrees, experience, and being a bold woman in business.At age 13, Trina left the teachings of the Mormon Church and her devout family to begin pursuing her own spiritual path. For the next thirty years, she explored agnosticism, atheism, meditation, yoga, and Buddhism to develop her own personal spiritual practice.And if this was not enough for one lifetime, after receiving her undergraduate degree from UCLA, followed by an MBA from NYU, Trina forged a successful business career in mainstream film and entertainment. Trina launched the Tribeca Film Festival with Robert De Niro and served as its Founding Director. Besides Tribeca Entertainment, she’s also worked as a senior executive at Intrepid Pictures, which co-produced and co-financed genre films such as The Strangers, The Raven, The Cold Light of Day, and Waist Deep. Trina has also held the position of CFO at Prana Studios, and led the team that acquired Rhythm & Hues, the Oscar-winning visual effects company, worked at IMDB and Film Independent, and then relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 2014 to accept a position at Gaia TV as Chief Content Officer. During her tenure there, she and her team set a new standard for the creation and distribution of conscious media. In 2016, Trina’s love of inspirational stories, her passion for using business as a force for good, and her commitment to personal growth, inspired her to create Conscious Good, a media streaming service and community platform for those committed to “being the change they wish to see in the world”.Shortly after its launch, Conscious Good established the Humanitarian Film Festival to support the UN’s World Humanitarian Day, and then established the highly acclaimed Mindscape Film Festival, celebrating stories of the Mind as integral to Body and Spirit. In addition to her current active role as Founder and CEO of Conscious Good, Trina is producing a feature film with Black Label Media which produced one of my favorite films — Begin Again — that sheds light on the challenges of mental illness facing our society today.She has served on the Advisory Board of Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment (G.A.T.E.), and as a consultant for the Illuminate Film Festival.And she is here today with us to teach us about being courageous in business, telling the truth for your own life journey,  and knowing that on your toughest days if you can just get yourself to your yoga mat you have accomplished enough. Learn more about Trina Wyatt here: https://consciousgood.com/Learn more about Molly Carroll here: https://molly-carroll.com/Get your free Body Emotion Map: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/mapFree Monthly Training: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/freetrainingFind me on SocialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mollycarrollinc/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Molly-Carroll-Writes-420796934793507/

Episode 7: Learn How Witnessing Your Parents Death Can Teach You How To Overcome Fear With Rhonda Britten
Rhonda Britten became an orphan at fourteen when she was the sole witness to the tragedy that no child should have to witness. This traumatic experience led Rhonda down a path of three suicide attempts, three DUI’s, addiction, and spending time in jail.  When she woke up from her third failed suicide attempt, she knew she had to find the answer to her pain, or she'd stay forever stuck in a spiral of depression, suicidal thoughts, and addiction forever.After looking for relief in therapy and searching for answers in books, she found that she still believed that no matter what she did or how hard she tried, she couldn't overcome her past. But one day she started putting gold star stickers on a piece of cardboard when she accomplished a small task, and it was this exercise that not only set her free but led her down a path of success that she never could have imagined.   This simple yet life-altering method was the beginning of a successful coaching program called Fearless Living that has helped thousands of people.  Rhonda established The Fearless Living Institute in 1995. It hosts book groups, online courses, in-person experiential workshops, “Fearless You” membership, and certifies Fearless Living Life Coaches and trainers based on Rhonda's teachings. The Fearless Living Life Coach Certification Program is considered the Ivy League of Life Coaching Training.Rhonda is also an Emmy Award-winner, four-time Bestselling author, Repeat Oprah guest, TEDx Speaker, and has devoted her life to one thing: teaching people how to master fear.  Rhonda was the first Life Coach on television on the show, "Help Me, Rhonda." She is also known for her work on the hit NBC reality show "Starting Over." After all her success celebrities came calling, and she joined the cast of "Celebrity Fit Club." She has also been interviewed on “Steve Harvey,” and “The Early Show.” To date, she has been featured in Good Housekeeping, London Sunday Times and The New York Times heralded her as "America's Favorite Life Coach.”  Oh, and if that is not enough Marianne Williamson, the author of A Course in Miracles said, "Rhonda Britten has risen from the ashes of genuine catastrophe. She has seen the deepest darkness and found her way beyond it. Hers was not an easy path by any means. What she has accomplished within herself, and now helps others to accomplish as well is nothing short of miraculous." And today she is with us on Cracking Open to teach resiliency, empower growth and be a deep example of still being able to love.Learn more about Rhonda Britten here:  https://fearlessliving.org/Get her books here: https://www.amazon.com/Rhonda-Britten/e/B001IU0NHQ%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_shareLearn more about Molly Carroll here: https://molly-carroll.com/Get your free Body Emotion Map: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/mapFree Monthly Training: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/freetrainingFind me on SocialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mollycarrollinc/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Molly-Carroll-Writes-420796934793507/

Episode 2: Discover the True Nature of What Mothering Really Means with Jodie Patterson
This week's episode is one I don't think you will ever forget. I am talking with the incredibly inspirational Jodie Patterson.  Jodie Patterson is an author, activist, beauty explorer, and mother of five. She holds the position of Chair of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Board, our nation’s largest LGBT organization. she sits on the Board of Directors for The Shabazz Center - which upholds the legacy and teachings of Malcolm X, as well as the Mount Sinai’s Institute for Health Equity Research Task Force, the Advisory Board of the Ackerman Institute’s Gender & Family Project, and Mount Sinai’s Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery Advisory Board. The United Nations recognized Patterson as a Champion of Change.Today we talk about her children, the role of being a mother (can this include having sex on the kitchen counter?) Most profound is her story of when her three-year-old son announced “Mama I’m not a girl. I’m a boy.” From that moment on, Jodie set out to inform herself, shift her own bias and change the way her community understood gender. Patterson chronicled that journey in her memoir, The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation - hailed by Alice Walker as “Marvelous”.Simply put Jodie is a true badass, teacher, and a voice we should all be listening to if we really want to experience freedom. Website: www.georgiany.comBooks: The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation, Born Ready: The True Story of a Boy Named PenelopeHuman Rights FoundationThe Shabazz CenterMount Sinai Institute for Health EquityMount Sinai Transgender SurgeryAckerman Research ProjectLearn more about Molly Carroll here: https://molly-carroll.com/Get your free Body Emotion Map: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/mapFree Monthly Training: https://mollycarrollprograms.com/freetrainingFind me on SocialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mollycarrollinc/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Molly-Carroll-Writes-420796934793507/
