Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, 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!

Getting caught up in negative situations often blind our emotions and judgment. It detaches us from our rhythm and leads us deeper into a never-ending rabbit hole. The fall eventually isolates us from the spiritual realm. While reconnecting with our spirit may seem impossible, getting back on track begins with something as easy as quieting your mind. Once you regain your presence, you can invite the spirit in and awaken your inner master.
In this episode, best-selling author Agapi Stassinopoulos gives a sneak peek of her latest book, Speaking With Spirit. Agapi discusses her experience of writing the book amid the pandemic and how it called her to practice. She also reveals how we can find our rhythm and invite our spirit in. Finally, Agapi guides us in seeking our inner master and maximizing our inherent potential.

Episode Highlights
Speaking With Spirit
●Agapi’s new book is called Speaking With Spirit: 52 Prayers to Guide, Inspire, and Uplift You. She wrote the book during the pandemic.
●As a person who thrives in heart, joy, and connection, living in lockdown was like being in exile for Agapi.
●Prayer and the aliveness of connecting with spirit is not a theory. We get called in to practice all the time, not just on special occasions.
●Tune in to the episode to hear excerpts of some affirmative quotes from her book!
●The spirit will feel like our next breath if we quiet the mind and come into presence.
Finding Your Rhythm
●Agapi’s number one spiritual teacher was her mother.
●Her mother had a rhythm of eternity; nothing could rush her. She never allowed herself to get caught up in other people's rhythms.
●Her sister is an AAA type who achieves and simultaneously does many things.
●Agapi is a lover and entertainer who likes creating connections with other people.
●The world’s demands keep us off our rhythm and vibration. Disconnecting from worldly pressure takes incredible courage.
Getting to the Spirit
●Agapi wrote the book to give people permission to acknowledge that they are loved exactly as they are.
●We don’t need to prove our values to other people and to our spirit.
●You need to stop, ask, and listen to get to the spirit.
●Listen to the full episode to hear a hilarious story about a monk who wanted to serve God!
On Betraying the Moments
●We end up going to bed empty and depleted when we betray the moments.
●We often turn to our phones to get some simulation. What we should do instead is turn them off and do something we love to cheer us up.
●Reading books and listening to her favorite pop music are some of Agapi's preferred uplifting activities.
How to Come into the Awakened Moment
●Pick up a pen and something to write on. Then, write down your prayers.
●Drafting your prayers steers us into a vulnerable moment. Reciting devotion wires the brain into a mindset that you’re not alone.
●The creation of our physical bodies remains unknown. The mystery entitles us to refer to ourselves as the miracle of life
●It requires a certain trust to open up to your miraculousness. Faith requires you to do something without knowing what’s ahead.
Finding Comfort and Grace in the Loss of a Loved One
●Listen to the episode to hear Rosie’s heartfelt story about how the book’s prayer consoled her after her father’s heart attack!
●Sometimes, there are no words to say to someone going through grief or loss. Give them love, compassion, and a safe space to cry.
●Rosie gained the courage and comfort she needed to get through it by reading a passage from the book.
●The uncertainty of a life-and-death situation calls for the spirit to come in and hold our hands.
●The more we learn to ask, receive, and recognize that we’re not alone, the more we can pass it on.
Inviting the Spirit In
●For Agapi, not having the connection she needed while writing the book was like cutting off her lifeforce.
●She found the lifeforce back inside. She had to comfort herself and bring little things to make her day better.
●When writing the book, she sought direction, guidance, and support from within.
●Agapi found the gift as she proceeded with new chapters and prayers.
●She wants to pass on the gift while also practicing it herself.
Our Inner Master
●Agapi sometimes can’t believe that she wrote her book whenever she reads it.
●Our inner master is the part of us that knows how to do things.
●The masterful part of ourselves is compassionate, strong, calm, and still. It’s the “I am”, also known as the God within.
●The more we practice our masterful selves, the more it rises. Then, we have to bring it to others.
Rekindle Your Enthusiasm Prayer
●Every day, as soon as we wake up, it is important that we renew ourselves.
●Tune in to the full podcast to listen as Agapi guides us through a short prayer!
●Affirmation: “God is my partner.”
●Stay resilient. Open up, and trust your spirit.
●Write down your prayers, wants, and things you want to let go of. Let the spirit speak to you.
Spiritual Guidance
●Agapi shares quick fixes for spiritual guidance in the book.
●Call the spirit forward in the middle of bad news or anything happening. Don’t delay it.
●The more each of us calls the spirit forward, the more we activate it — the more it grows.
Be Part of the Family
●Her guided meditations will be published on Audible.
●Unbinding The Heart, her third book, reveals the beginning of her spiritual journey.
●Agapi reminds us that the Radically Love family is here for all of us.
●Lastly, she encourages us to join and indulge in family fun.

[19:55] “When you're going through grief or loss, I relate and there are no words to say to someone. Give them love and compassion, and a safe space for them to cry.”

[22:14] “The more we learn to ask and receive, and the more we learn that we're not alone, the more we can pass that on.”

Falling in love is undoubtedly one of the best feelings in the world. It makes our heart flutter and the butterflies in our stomachs dance in joy. No matter the age, love is something we all feel, may it be fleeting or long-term. But not all the people we love feel the same way for us and vice versa. Feelings don't always get reciprocated no matter how much we work on them. In this case, what is the proper response for the person on the receiving end of a love confession?
In this episode, Rosie and Tessa talk about the overarching theme of love. They answer a question from a listener on how to respond to someone they don't feel the same way romantically. Furthermore, they talked about when to say "I love you." They highlight the importance of setting boundaries in avoiding asymmetrical relationships. Tessa then shares the details of her love story at the end of the podcast!

To Radically Loved’s Listeners
●2022 will be your year.
●Rosie reads every single listener email that comes into Radically Loved’s email. She’s grateful for the community’s continued support.
●Rosie started doing the podcast on her house’s dining table using an H4 Zoom recorder and headphones. She used to do interviews over the phone.
●The podcast has come a long way from its beginning in 2016.
Tessa and Rosie’s Relationship
●Tessa and Rosie have known each other since 2015. Tessa was Rosie’s student.
●Tessa and Kristina Coco are the two people certified to teach Rosie’s 200-hour level teacher training.
On Books and Manifestation
●Tessa can’t wait to get her hands on Rosie’s book.
●Talking about books always induces a cozy atmosphere.
●Rosie will be recording her audiobook in the second week of January.
●Writing a book seemed only a far-fetched dream for Rosie before. She will be recording an audiobook exactly ten years from that little seedling of thought.
●Manifestation works, and dreams do come true.
You Can Do Anything
●We often look at other people who have something we want with a lens of curiosity and willingness to learn.
●If others have done it, you can do it too.
●This conversation stemmed from Rosie’s podcast interview with Sheri Salata.
●Tessa always thinks back to the four locks and keys in Yoga Sutra when talking about this topic.
●Comparison can either be a source of inspiration or something that can stop us in our tracks.
How Soon is Too Soon to Say “I Love You”
●The main topic for this episode is the overarching theme of falling in love
●A question from a listener: How do you respond to someone wholeheartedly saying they love you when you don’t feel the same way romantically?
●OkCupid surveyed 6000 people on the question of how soon is too soon to say "I love you."
●62% think you should say it as soon as you feel it. 22% say you should wait several months, while 3% say you should wait at least a year.
●The typical range is about three months.
How to Respond to a Confession When You Don’t Feel the Same Way
●Tessa has never had the situation happen to her. She thinks it’s best to approach it like a compliment and say thank you.
●Rosie has experienced this situation before. A friend confessed to her wanting to be in a romantic relationship, but she didn't feel the same way.
●That friend tried to push the idea to Rosie, even with Torry in the picture. She turned him down on several occasions and created space between them.
●A spiritual counselor asked Rosie if she was keeping that friend as a way of ego feeding.
●Rosie suggests being honest and creating a clear boundary.
Creating an Asymmetrical Relationship
●It’s hard to maintain a deep friendship with someone in love with you.
●It’s a selfish endeavor not to create boundaries with someone you don’t feel the same way romantically. It creates an asymmetrical relationship.
●An asymmetrical friendship is when only one person gets the buck of energy fill.
How to Come from a Place of Honesty and Kindness
●Laying down romantic feelings and the vulnerability that comes with it is a sensitive subject.
●It’s not easy to turn someone down in a way that remains kind and loving.
●Tessa: Have the other person clarify what they mean by their "I love you." Acknowledge it, give appreciation, and explain you don't feel the same kind of love.
●Rosie is more of the type to close the door immediately. She doesn't want to lead anybody on.
Tessa’s Puppy Love Experience
●Tessa was in a long-term monogamous relationship for six years when she was 16.
●Her parents were worried about it and had a serious talk with her. Tune in to the full episode to hear more about her parents' reaction to her puppy love.
Tessa’s Love Story
●Tessa and her current partner Jorge have been together for over a decade. They met in college in Oregon.
●Tessa swooned over aura when he served her and her friend at the restaurant he worked at. He was from Mexico and still had a thick accent when they first met.
●They ended up meeting on campus again and started seeing each other more often and going Salsa dancing together. But they were with other people at the time.
●Tessa found out he was living with his girlfriend’s parents at the time. They were his host family as an exchange student, so Tessa didn’t want to compromise.
●Jorge would say Tessa was just his English tutor, but his actions said otherwise. They eventually got together after the other people in the picture fell away.
Love in a Long-Term Adult Relationship
●Tessa said they said "I love you" within the three to the six-month mark of their relationship.
●Energy and excitement always fill Tessa every time she retells their love story.
●Tessa realized over the years that she chose a good partner. They have had ups and downs, but she couldn’t pick a better partner.
●Rosie agrees that Tessa and Jorge complement each other very well.
●Meanwhile, Rosie shares her love story at length in her book. She says she must have done something right in the past life to deserve Torry.
Powerful Quotes
“I would do my best to say something along the lines of, I care a lot about you. You mean a lot to me. I don't feel ready to say ‘I love you’ yet, at least not in that the way that I think you mean it.”
“I think there's a difference here. And this is very much under the umbrella of falling in love the difference between being an adult relationship and puppy love.”
“If you're not corresponding, it's almost once the relationship crosses that threshold unless there are very, very clear boundaries, it's kind of hard to go back. And then at that point, subconsciously, the mind is just wanting to keep that person around, to sort of feed that part of you that likes that attention.”
Jan 4, 2022
Life can often have a lot of detours, ups, downs, and twists around. It's easy to get lost or stranded in one place instead of finding out where the path can lead. Many things can get in the way of finding meaning. Sometimes the roadblocks aren't external — you might be looking in the wrong place or misunderstanding what's best for you. However, as your life progresses, you'll understand that the pitfalls in your life help you grow.
In this episode, Sheri Salata joins us to talk about her journey and share the lessons she has learned along the way. The stories that led to her writing a book and the experiences she garnered throughout her life are words of wisdom that you don't want to miss. Finally, Sheri shares her advice on making critical decisions and reaching your dreams. If you've ever felt lost or stuck, tune in and embark on the path toward a positive transformation.

Episode Highlights
Sheri’s Secret Sauce
●Sheri has a knack for gathering a group of people to do things as a group. She also mentions that she could herd kittens.
●When she was younger, she wasn’t picky about her jobs and took them one after another. She was determined to find a job that could provide stability for her retirement.
●Sheri wasn’t finding meaning in what she did, wasting her devotion on jobs bereft of purpose to her.
●Although she felt miserable after trying out multiple jobs, she still persevered. She later found her purpose in her life and applied that to her job search.
The Time to Try New Things
●The feeling that you are sacrificing your life for a paycheck could indirectly hint that you should try finding meaning elsewhere.
●When Sheri became an entrepreneur at 56, she first experienced what it felt like to enjoy a job.
●Another lesson Sheri taught us was to take risks. Searching for your true passion is a process of trial and error.
●She advises others to try entrepreneurship. Alternatively, work for a startup company to observe the empowerment that comes with being an entrepreneur.
Making the Right Decision
●There are different kinds of decisions in life. A governing decision is the most powerful decision that sets a framework for your life.
●Sheri urges us to be decisive. It doesn't need to be a good decision at that moment — the mistakes of today help your judgment tomorrow.
●When you’re deciding, ask yourself whether you would feel good about it. If it feels good, you are encouraged to proceed. You can always change course later.
●Your slippery character is the part of you that stops change. The fear of an unknown future prevents you from finding meaning elsewhere.
●Talk to your slippery character. Though it may simply want to protect you, help yourself understand that you can make a positive change in your life.
Matching Energies
●To reach a dream, match the good feeling. Manage your mood and thoughts to approach the actions positively instead of negatively.
●What often gets in the way is starting to think of the ways it's going to go wrong. Fear shifts your energy from matching the dream to repelling it.
Stopping Comparisons
●Sometimes you might feel inferior when comparing yourself with others.
●Look at your comparisons as a treasure hunt. Learn from others that you like and learn to apply their methods in your pursuit of success.
●Match your positive and encouraging energy with your dreams and manifest them through practice.
●Be more conscious of what you are practicing. Take control and focus on good practices that can help you.
Finding Meaning In Her Work
●Sheri was 35 years old when she started working at the Oprah Winfrey Show in an entry-level work position.
●She began finding meaning in her job as she took notes on all the spiritual experts, teachers, and leaders she met.
●That job was where Sheri found the quantum. She started cultivating a spiritual life and connected with the universe.
●Even until now, she continues to look for portals of opportunity. She evaluates her drawbacks and looks for ways to improve and become a better person.
●When Sheri reflects on her constructive transformations and retains her energy, she rises and grows. Transformational conversations pushed her into finding meaning.
Sharing Stories
●There is an empowering element in taking ownership of your own experiences and genuinely sharing them.
●During her book tour, Sheri realized that sharing her stories helped in her healing process.
●Sheri noticed that her audience and readers shared their stories as well. Essentially, she believed that the exchange helped them make amends with their inner wounds.
●The overall experience helped her audience recognize their potential and the abundant possibilities they could explore.
●Every story has an impact on its respective readers. We can find good value and lessons in any story.
Sheri’s Favorite Things to Do
●Last January, she launched a course called "Write Your Story, Transform Your Life," where she spends weeks of deep transformation with others.
●Sheri enjoys inviting people to her masterclasses and workshops organized by her private membership group called "The Support System."
●A vacation to Italy is what she began doing to reward herself.
●Whenever she does her favorite things, she notices herself blossoming into a better person. Ultimately, she has found ease in her current life.
Desired Takeaways for Sheri’s Book Tours
●Sheri hopes that she conveys as much learning as possible from her experiences, hoping it would inspire her audience to seek positive change.
●She also hopes she delivers her message and experience to her audience properly.
●After each event, she thinks about what she got from it and what she gave back.
How Sheri Experiences Radical Love
●Over the last three or four years, Sheri learned what it truly means to love herself.
●Being kind to and counting on herself forges another level of self-love that only she could give. No one in the world will love her more than she loves herself.
●Sheri loves animals and desires to help rescue animals and farm sanctuaries. It would be better if she were to take care of a huge group of rescued animals.
●She states that we are in a co-beneficial relationship with other sentient beings on Earth. This is why she chooses to be a shepherd who cares for them.
5 Powerful Quotes
[6:56] “Lean into happy, lean into what feels good. Quit trying to push the boulder up the hill and make the wrong relationships work, the wrong jobs work.”
[14:40] “We're just in decision paralysis. Anytime you feel yourself in that place, take that really seriously, because it means you are delaying a magnificent future. You're delaying change, good change.”
[19:34] “I needed to look at [comparison] as a little treasure hunt where I literally am out in the world going, ‘I want some of that.’ so I could stop comparing myself. Comparison is the death of dreams.”
[27:52] “I'm willing to own my experiences, and I share them vulnerably because, first of all, just speaking those words, and those stories heal me.”

Episode Highlights
The Time Rosie Stole a Cop Car
●Rosie was 15 years old when she was caught playing around in a cop car.
●When the cops came, she tried to be sly and play it off.
●She was arrested and booked into the system. Luckily, her dad bailed her out.
●Because of this incident, Rosie was under parole for half of her high school life.
Life After Arrest
●The system doesn’t set you up for success.
●However, Rosie still felt lucky. She had a supportive family and probation officer.
●But the stigma of being a troubled kid cannot be avoided.
●Yoga and meditation changed her life during those turbulent times.
The Importance of Names
●Jessica’s last name is of Spanish origin, so a lot of people tend to mispronounce it.
●While she doesn’t mind her name being mispronounced, she still understands the power pronouncing a name properly has.
●On the same note, Rosie’s last name is also mispronounced often. But she doesn’t feel like she has to correct people for it.
The Past Months for Jessica
●Jessica is not an optimist. The year 2021 has been tougher than 2020 for her.
●There’s a lot of pressure to go back to normal. But we’re still confronted with a lot of problems like a lot of people getting sick and dying.
●We’re also facing climate change and political unrest in the middle of the pandemic.
●Back in 2019, other astrologers have also predicted that something terrible was coming.
●As an empath and astrologer, the whole situation is stressful for Jessica. She also worries about how the future may shake out.
The Challenge of Uranus in Taurus Transit
●The Uranus in Taurus transit challenges us to learn what and who we value.
●The overlap of World War II and the current rise of fascism globally tells us a lot about human nature.
●A certain percentage of the population will always agree with a fascist. This situation must be considered by spiritual people as a trauma response.
●But these people still deserve empathy, even if they may be our enemies.
●The current situation then challenges us to live in a way that reflects our values.
Acknowledging Negative Thoughts
●Nobody’s life is completely positive all the time. It’s the human condition.
●But some people ignore bad things happening around them because they believe they should not pull negative thoughts into their sphere.
●This belief is a gross misuse of privilege and a misunderstanding of spiritual concepts.
●If we cannot stay aligned with the positive or constructive while we are in the reality of terrible things, then we have more spiritual work to do.
●We must learn to be present and kind not because of its results but because it’s the way to be.
Keeping Ourselves Informed
●Our society tells women to let men handle important things. Although not a conscious intention, it’s become a cultural heritage.
●Women must be informed and allowed to state their opinions about the world and the news.
●Individually, we must learn to figure out how to translate things ourselves. It’s important not to rely on others when it comes to digesting information.
●It’s impossible to describe information to someone without putting your spin on it.
●“Crowdsourcing” with a group of people you trust to keep each other informed is also possible. This practice can help empathy translate into action and civic engagement.
Engaging Conversations to Put Things into Perspective
●Rosie recently had a conversation with her mother about why she used to wear black all the time.
●She was living in an area and going to a school where colors can get you killed. Wearing the wrong shade can potentially cause an issue with gangs.
●Engaging conversations like this helped put things into perspective for her mom. If they had discussed this at that time, it would have put less stress on both parties.
●This example further emphasizes why we need to be authentically interested in the other person and where they’re coming from.
Sharing Your Truth
●Rosie’s parents are proud of her book. But they still have reservations on why she needs to share her business with the world.
●This reaction has much to do with the cultural and generation gap. Millennials are more comfortable with personal sharing than Boomers.
How Jessica Feels Radically Loved
●Jessica compared the feeling of being radically loved to that of her vagus nerve named “Viva Las Vagus.”
●Her vagus nerve is her ally and resource.
●For the first time in her life, she’s starting to appreciate, work with, and treat it with the reverence it deserves.
5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
[23:54] “The spiritual community...does deserve criticism, because we have a responsibility to be civically, politically, [and] socially-minded to take responsibility for the power of our actions and our words.”
[26:14] “We need to be able to talk about how to be critical thinkers and what's the difference between disinformation and misinformation and misunderstandings. How do you determine what's real and what's not real?”
[40:19] “It doesn't matter how much we practice being spiritual. At the end of the day, we can't just go live in a cave somewhere and pretend like everything is, at times, not falling apart.”
[41:27] “If we cannot stay aligned with the positive or the constructive, while we are in the reality of all sorts of terrible things, then we have more spiritual work to do.”
[47:13] “Whatever strategies we can come up with to be informed, stay informed, not just empathetic on a spiritual level, but to have empathy translate into action and civic engagement, that’s what will make this Pluto return ideal.”

Have you ever been mad at someone who hadn’t done anything to you? Or perhaps felt that someone was upset at you for no reason? Everyone handles negative emotions differently — some people respond with forgiveness and mindfulness. However, sometimes we hold those negative emotions inside us. If we don’t understand emotions, we pass them onto others and get angry at people who don’t deserve it. This phenomenon is called transference.

In this episode, Nicky Sciortino discusses transference and its significance in our lives. She also encourages us to examine our emotions and acknowledge if we have committed transference before. Accepting ourselves is only half of the battle. Nicky guides us into finding solutions to avoid redirecting our negative emotions and feelings to others.

If you want to understand emotions, and reconnect with your authentic self, stay tuned to this episode!

Episode Highlights
Nicky, an Avid Listener of Radically Loved
●Nicky incorporated the lessons she learned on the Radically Loved podcast in her yoga classes.
●She loved listening to the podcast, especially during the pandemic, where she couldn't talk to her friends as much.
●Listening to the show was like getting to have girl talk with her friends.
About Transference
●Transference refers to redirecting the feelings you have from one person to another individual.
●You know you’re on the receiving end because you can’t find a reasonable explanation for the other person’s behavior.
●Nicky experienced transference when she joined a yoga class led by an upset instructor. Tune in to the full episode to hear the story!
●Nicky went back to what she learned from Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements. One of these lessons is don't take anything personally.
●Projecting is different from transference. It refers to attributing your negative emotions and qualities to another person.
Nicky’s Experience of Committing Transference
●Nicky had a student who kept getting under her skin. She can't figure out why.
●After Nicky's yoga class, a student roughly 30 years her senior would frequently ask her basic questions about the class, or for personal advice.
●Instead of reacting negatively, Nicky took the time to examine herself and understand emotions.
●She realized she redirected the negative feelings she had with her abusive mother to her student.
●When you lash out at someone, you're expressing your pent-up negative emotions. It’s your responsibility to understand why you react the way you do.
Not Everyone Can Be a Teacher
●People practice yoga to feel nourished, filled, and connected to their bodies and community. It's not a space to be criticized or dismissed.
●Yoga teachers wield a lot of power and influence. Therefore, they carry a lot of responsibility.
●We should focus on quality instead of the number of yoga instructors.
●Yoga teachers must actively pursue their yogic path to teach a more profound type of practice.
Understand Emotions, Be Aware of Transference
●The topic of transference reminded Tessa of Ram Dass’s quote: "I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion—and where it isn't, that's where my work lies.”
●Examining ourselves if we committed transference is difficult and scary because it makes us vulnerable.
●Yoga teachers should be aware when they redirect negative emotions to others.
●Many tools can help you avoid transference. Peel back the layers of the onion, understand emotions, and scrub yourself!
●When you’re a recipient of transference, remember that it’s the other person’s issue and not yours.
Continue Reflecting on Ourselves
●It's crucial to continue examining ourselves and help others do the same. Take accountability and invite in that compassion and self-study all at once.
●There may not be a pot at the end of the rainbow, but it’s beautiful to see ourselves evolve through time.
●Working on ourselves allows us to live an authentic life.
●In unraveling our embedded thoughts and beliefs, we become fully present.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[13:35] “...we're all works in progress. We all make mistakes — and how do you learn from it?”

[21:43] “When you're able to take care of your own demons, they don't become triggers anymore.”

[22:34] “Whenever somebody makes you angry, remember that they're an empty boat. That anger exists inside of you. It's your job to understand those triggers. It's your job to not be the reactor.”

[24:42] “If people were more conscious and awake about their own personal experience, we wouldn't have as many unfavorable interactions with other people.”

[37:46] “The whole purpose of doing all of this is to unravel all of those embedded thoughts and beliefs and transform them into exactly what is present.”

Humans need to feel valued and appreciated. When you’re dating someone, it’s also normal to desire validation from your partner — about the smallest things like your OOTD to things like your character and personality.

Episode Highlights
Tessa’s Boyfriend
●Tessa’s boyfriend, Jorge, is terrible at massaging. She describes his hands as “hulk paws.”
●Although Tessa and her boyfriend are in a happy relationship, sometimes she thinks about him differently — good at cooking and massaging.
●One common dating problem is thinking that there is somebody better than your partner when there isn’t.
Tessa and Rosie’s Thoughts on Dating
●Both Tessa and Rosie have been in a happy relationship for decades.
●Tessa finds her boyfriend a great person despite his flaws.
●While there might be many choices in dating, each relationship has its pros and cons.
●Rosie has been in a long-term relationship since she was 20 and enjoys hearing stories from friends about their relationships.
●In the past, dating somebody meant physically meeting up. Nowadays, online communication plays a big part in relationships.
Online Dating
●There are pros and cons to online dating. Rosie has seen online relationships bloom and built many friendships online as well.
●Society’s disembodiment makes it harder to get to know people beyond their pictures. In online dating, attraction becomes largely based on appearance instead of personality.
●Even in the past, maintaining relationships can be difficult when most prioritize other responsibilities.
●The COVID pandemic has made it even harder to create and maintain relationships.
●There is somebody for everybody. Let go of the desperation of finding somebody and the right person will naturally come to you.
The Effects of Praise
●Praise activates the reward areas in the brain.
●Research shows that receiving praise improves skill consolidation. This is a learning process that occurs during sleep.
●Praise is important not just in the workplace but also in relationships. It’s communication and feedback.
●Different people react differently to praise. Nonetheless, it’s important for them to hear compliments.
Receiving and Responding to Praise
●Sometimes, people choose to reply humbly.
●For Tessa, a confident response can make her feel insecure about her value in the relationship.
●When you receive compliments, you can be gracious in accepting the praise by saying “thank you”.
●People tend to minimize their acceptance of praise. They negate or joke about it to turn away the praise.
Fishing for Compliments
●It’s natural for people to want praise.
●One reason people look for compliments is when they need validation from others.
●People want to be valued for being as enough as they are.
●Rosie prefers honesty. When someone is being negative, she would express how harsh they are to themselves.
●Think about how you can respond equally to both praise and criticism to improve yourself and your mindset.
5 Powerful Quotes
[05:43] “We all have our strengths and our weaknesses. There are pros and cons to every relationship. It's not gonna be better, but it'll be different.”
[11:28] “People that [relationships] can potentially happen with that we just don't know because we are an ocular society. We're just using the external to judge whether or not this person is right for us just by their outward appearance.”
[13:03] “For the people that have a desire for companionship, there is somebody out there that's looking for you. There is somebody for everybody... I'm saying the desperation that happens when you're wanting to find somebody so bad. If you release that and let go of that I think you will go into the frequency of attracting that right person for yourself”
[20:56] “I have the hardest time receiving compliments… [The response] can be gracious and accepting that someone thinks that of you .”
[40:51] “It’s like, I want to be valued as enough by just showing up and being here and being me. There's always like this underlying striving to have that reflected back to you when we give everyone else the opportunity to comment on us. Or when we're waiting for someone else to comment on some sort of feature that we have about ourselves that we may or may not feel confident about.”

Episode Highlights
The Revised Edition of Loving What Is
●Nearly 20 years after its publication, Loving What Is inspires people to do The Work and find the answers inside themselves.
●The Work is simply four questions that help to see what is troubling you.
●The book’s revised edition includes new dialogues and passages to help people understand how to inquire within.
Applying The Work During Turbulent Times
●Byron felt grateful that The Work is out there to help people.
●There is freedom in finding answers through meditative practice.
●The lack of understanding and compassion on what we read, see and think means we have more work to do.
●The Work is an intimate experience. It allows you to access your inner wisdom and pass it on to others.
Being in the State of Loving
●Love is a lot of energy, and it teaches us balance in all things.
●The Work provides the four pillars needed to be in the state of loving.
●Byron’s life mission is to spread a way of being that is heart-centered and authentic.
●Question what you think and believe when troubled. Eventually, everything will make sense.
●People are scared of talking about their experiences and connecting with others.
●Self-inquiry shows us how to love the world.
Inner Wisdom Through Self-Inquiry
●It is only ourselves who can determine if we have the time to self-inquire.
●Challenging what we believe and writing it down on paper changes the way we see the world.
●We are capable of moving forward with our lives despite being afraid.
●Identifying and questioning the ego’s negative thoughts helps us find our inner wisdom. It’s a meditative practice that shifts how we see the world.
●If we love everything we think, then we are going to be okay.
Looking For Joy And Connection
●You don't have to do anything with it. Instead, we must experience it.
●When you realize the experience, you experience an enlightened mind.
Defining Ego
●The ego is the negative voice inside your head. It is a false perception of who you are.
●“Ego” is just a word for mind, for thinking and the images that come with it.
●Questioning the ego resolves our pessimistic self-talk.
●As we learn to separate ourselves from it, we begin to find peace.
What is Earth School?
●The ego finds it unnecessary to rest and identify the inner wisdom of the heart.
●Earth school is an opportunity to wake up to reality and find our true nature.
●We can never have the world back, and there is no need to do so. The present moment meets all our needs.
●The people who hurt us are our Earth school teachers.
●Judge the people who scorned you and put your thoughts on a piece of paper.
“Is It True?”
●“Is it true?” is one of the four questions Byron came up with to free ourselves from negative thoughts.
●Be still and ask yourself if what you feel is the truth.
●Don’t believe whatever the ego tells you.
●Your mind ends in a question mark. You feel those emotions, and you don't even know what you're feeling.
Love Can’t Be Taught
●Love can’t be taught. It can only be lived.
●Our Earth teachers could lead us to life lessons we missed.
●Self-inquiry wakes us up from our fears and blindness. When we practice self-inquiry, we become awake and connected.
Hope For The Future
●Byron hopes that people understand there’s a way out of our misery.
●We don’t need to wait for others to help us.
●Living a life of inquiry shifts our identity and makes life worth living.
Reason For Deteriorating Mental Health
●People’s mental health is deteriorating because of the current turbulent times.
●Fear is a result of an unquestioned mind.
How Byron Takes Care of Herself
●Before discovering self-inquiry, Byron was depressed and had a difficult time getting out of bed.
●When times are tough, observe what you think and believe.
●There is nothing that could keep Byron down because nothing is going on except for stillness.
How Byron Feels Radically Loved
●Byron says she loves everything she thinks.

[6:06] “We discover The Work is really inside of us. We discover it, and we pass it on through our kindness and wisdom.”

[30:04] “[Love is] not something we can teach. It can only be lived.”

[33:52] “Fear is an unquestioned mind.”

Episode Highlights
Jen’s Pandemic Experience
●Jen is still figuring things out in 2021, but she’s had many silver linings, too.
●Being intentional about slowing down has been a gift to her during the pandemic, making her feel empowered.
●The pandemic has been an existential opportunity for her.
Honoring Your Feelings
●Your experience is yours regardless of what’s happening to others.
●As a human being, you’ll have challenges and you don’t need to discredit any negative feelings.
●It’s important to be aware and grateful for your blessings.
Making New Habits Stick
●She did a 21-day course in the book, but the more she did research and paid attention to her own life and habits, she realized that there’s no specific amount of time to make new habits stick.
●It took her several tries to quit smoking until she finally did.
●Chunking things down into bite-sized actions makes it easier.
The Importance of Boundaries
●Not having good boundaries is exhausting because you end up doing stuff you don’t want to do, which builds up resentment.
●Healthy, clear boundaries are a gift to everyone.
●Shifting to a perception of a healthy boundary as something positive is the first step.
Setting Boundaries in Social Media
●She didn’t grow up with social media so she’s not as invested in it.
●Just like any other boundary or habit, specifics are the key to freedom.
●Don’t dwell too much on the negative stuff because people’s opinions and reactions about you are really about themselves.
Minimizing Social Media Use
●Strictly set up times when you’re allowed to look at your phone.
●Intentionally doing something helps break the initial habit.
●Our gadgets are always interrupting us and stopping us from cherishing moments where we’re able to be with others.
Staying Present
●Being present for anybody is definitely a challenge because we’re all busy, but it all boils down to intention.
●Just do your best and try not to beat yourself up.
●Writing notes to yourself, using visual cues, and taking a deep breath is helpful.
How People Pleasers Can Set Boundaries
●In every single to-do list, consider if it brings you joy or if you want to do it.
●Connect with your feelings.
●You’re not serving anyone if you’re doing something you don’t want to do, especially if it’s just to please people.
Jen’s Creativity and Mental Well-being
●Jen loves moving and new experiences.
●She’s lived in big cities a lot and she loves that energy, but she also loves hiking and nature so she loved living in the city and vacationing in nature.
●The pandemic impacted her creativity and well-being because she needs the vibrancy and energy of a city and she needs to travel.
How Jen Feels About Her Book
●Jen is proud of having the discipline to write something because writing is a challenge.
●She’s not particularly proud of her book’s success and while she thinks she did a good job on her book, she believes it’s mostly awesome timing.
5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
[5:43] “You’re still a human being, and you still have your challenges and your highs and your lows and all that. So it doesn’t mean every time you have a “negative feeling” or “thought”, you need to discredit it because you are so charmed.”

[8:08] “Whatever your habit is, if you just take it one little piece at a time, instead of overwhelming yourself with how long it’s going to take and or how much you have to do, you’ll be so much more successful.”

[19:27] “... it’s so rare, especially now that you get one on one with people or you’re in a room with another human and I want to cherish that, you know, togetherness and not be always over here [on my phone].”

[21:18] “... staying present for anybody is really a challenge because we are all being pulled in so many directions. And again, it’s just that intention, you know, and just doing your best with it and not beating yourself up.”

[23:02] “... you’re not serving them if you’re doing it and you do not want to do it. And if you’re doing it just to please them and be liked, that’s not a good reason.”
Jen Sincero is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, speaker and motivational cattle prod who’s helped countless people transform their lives with her products, seminars, and books.

Episode Highlights
When Someone Says ‘You Need to Calm Down’
●It’s easy to get even more inflamed when someone tells you to calm down.
●However, what that often means is they are the ones who need to calm down. They don’t know how to handle your energy, so they’re crying out for help.
●Instead of saying ‘I can see you’re upset’ or ‘You need to calm down,’ it’s better to say ‘I hear you, I can feel how upset you are, so I’m going to take a step back.’
●This statement is more empathetic and allows you to neutralize a heated situation.
Ferocious Courage to Tell the Truth
●Jacqui’s book is subtitled: ‘A bold path to ferocious courage and rule-breaking kindness that can heal the world.’
●She came up with this statement, after realizing how ferociously courageous it was to tell the truth about herself and confront her story.
●This ferocious courage to tell the truth transcends into rule-breaking kindness.
How to Confront Someone with Your Truth
●If we want to tell the truth and have it go well, we’ll have to wire ourselves with ‘I’ statements.
●Our feelings are facts. So, no one’s going to be defensive about your feelings.
●Also, you have to let go of the outcome after you tell the truth. You can’t manage how others will react—you can only handle your dynamics.
Modelling Truth-Telling
●Jacqui envisions a world where we raise children to be truth warriors.
●It’s hard to tell the truth, but it’s necessary to prevent violence.
Hard and Fierce Love
●This type of love takes risks and makes your head hurt.
●It applies to having tough but necessary conversations.
●When we fiercely love ourselves, we are less brittle, competitive, and jealous.
Practicing Fierce Love Even Amidst Grief
●We are at a time where to be human in the world is to be in a state of grief.
●Grief causes us to be angry, sad, or brittle. We tend to do things we don’t normally do when we are grieving.
●So, we should exercise a bit more compassion and a bit less judgment towards ourselves and others.
Being Curious About Others’ Truths
●Every person in the world has their own interior life that you’re simply bumping into. Their experience is likely not about you, but it’s real for them.
●So, it’s crucial not to dismiss their truths, but to explore them.
●We’re on our separate journeys, and the person you’re interacting with may not be at the same place as you.
●What’s important is to keep modeling the behavior you hope for.
Dealing with Resentment
●Resentment stems from the gap between what you hope for and what is.
●The best way to fill this gap is self-love.
●If we exercise our self-love muscles, we can be there for ourselves when other people fail us.
How Dr. Jacqui Feels Radically Loved
●Dr. Jacqui feels radically loved by her source, God.
●She believes that God will never leave her, and she is peaceful that she has somebody with her all the time.
●She also emphasizes the radical love she feels from her family.
5 Powerful Quotes from this Episode
[3:24] “When we are in that threat place, that danger place, ‘Calm down’ inflames; ‘I can hear you, I can feel you, I can see you’ is empathy.”
[6:00] “Ferocious courage is to just show ourselves to each other, our needs, our wants, our desires, our fears, our dreams, our hopes, our passion, our sensuality.”
[13:09] “We can build bridges, we can create a deeper understanding by coming from a state of love and kindness.”
[22:59] “We just don't have to be so strung out about the other person's stuff, because it's their stuff, not yours.”
[30:44] “That's resentment: the gap between what I hoped for and what is. So how do you fill that gap?”
