Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hi I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

Moving Away from Fear Toward an Authentic Life with Jen Pastiloff

We should never forget who we are and what we want, even with adversity in our lives. Our purpose and identity are what keep us going. No matter what society tells us about how and who we should be, living an authentic life will bring satisfaction and happiness in our lives.

It's time to reflect and ask ourselves if we are living the life we’ve always wanted. And if we find ourselves saying no, may we have the courage to start again and build the life we desire.

In this episode, Jen Pastiloff talks to us about the importance of living a life congruent with our true selves and moving away from fear. Discussions on how to prevent ourselves from being paralyzed from fear are essential as we continue to live through a global pandemic and civil unrest. She also talks about how she's helping amplify the voices of the vulnerable sectors of society and why she doesn't believe that everything happens for a reason.

If you want to hear tips on how to live an authentic life that’s congruent with who you are, listen to the full episode.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover why you need to live a life congruent with your authentic self.
  2. Learn helpful ways to move away from fear.
  3. Jen will share with us how she feels radically loved.

Episode Highlights

Living a Congruent Life

  • Just like everybody else, Jen still struggles with living true to who she is.
  • Living an authentic life gives you freedom.
  • Just like how gossiping and complaining don't make you feel good and lower your vibration, not living a life congruent with your real self will not bring you happiness.

Coping During the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Due to the pandemic's impacts, Jen had to cancel a lot of her schedule, which prevented her from earning.
  • To cope with the stress, she chose to use her platform to raise money for people suffering from the ongoing health crisis and the Black Lives Matter movement.
  • Doing online workshops also gives her hope during this challenging period.

Moving Away from Fear

  • Jen copes with her anxieties by moving her body.
  • Find your people who will hold you accountable and remind you of who you really are.
  • Fear starts to get louder when you're at home all day long.
  • Due to the current state of the world, many people lack human connection, and it adds to the fear they're having.
  • Jen finds the strength within her to jump on new things even though she feels afraid.

Jen’s Main Anchor in Life

  • Jen inherited her dad's sense of humor. Learning humor’s value and not taking herself too seriously helped her find balance in her life.
  • Everything is temporary. So Jen encourages everyone to remain grateful for the things they have right now.
  • Her ability to connect with people is also one thing that keeps her on the right path.

Does Everything Happen for a Reason?

  • Instead of saying everything happens for a reason, according to Jen, it's much better to find the meaning out of a situation.
  • She doesn't agree that the suffering of other people is something preordained.
  • The phrase “everything happens for a reason” is just a way for people to cope with the discomfort they feel about something.
  • That said, Jen does not invalidate how the phrase provides comfort to religious people or people of faith.

Using Her Platform for Social Justice

  • Jen reminds everyone that it doesn't cost anything to be kind and help other people.
  • Helping others feels organic to her.
  • Jen is aware of her privilege as a white woman. So she makes sure she uses her platform to amplify the voices of the people who don't share the same privilege.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[07:11] “All I ever want to be is free, and kind, and various other things, but free, ultimately, from the prison that most of us put ourselves in.”

[08:18] “May I have the courage to be who I say I am.” 

[22:27] “I know what I'm good at. I'm good at being in a room with 75 or a hundred people in person. But I don't know how this was gonna work. I'm afraid, and I'm doing it anyway.”

[23:40] “If it becomes a lifetime of being afraid and not doing it, then you get kind of screwed.”

[30:27] “I don't think everything happens for a reason at all. I think that's nonsense. I think that after something happens, we can make meaning out of it sometimes, or art, or find the gift in it.”
