Self Love Now with Oliver Lennard | Ep #4

August 28, 2021

Can I really Say I Love Myself? I Remember Having Difficult Times. Gratitude Is A Pillar Of Self Love. I am happy that with acceptance I can say I love myself. I always make an effort to spot every moment when I am not giving myself love. Love is beautiful.

The main message is, YOU are enough. If you look around you, you will see how much everything is supporting you. No matter how challenging it may feel. Its just a matter of changing the lens and seeing through the eyes of compassion and love not scarcity and lack.

Enjoy this soundbite with my good friend Oliver, one of the co-authors of this wonderful book.

SELF LOVE NOW is the title of the book I curated with 54 friends answering the the same question; Why is Self-Love important?

During a ‘Sharing Circle’ Simon invited a spontaneous question; “Why is Self Love so important today?”. He was profoundly moved by the answers of those in the circle, so much so that over time that movement continued to birth an idea of a book of diversely selected co-creators expressing their individual answers to the same broad and important universal question.

Burglar To Buddha #25 | Transforming From The Inside Out

Burglar To Buddha #25 | Transforming From The Inside Out

July 3, 2021

The Truth Is Better Than Any Drug. Are You Ready For Radical Honesty? An interview with my publisher and editor Michelle Gordon from Not From This Planet.

At 18 years old Simon Paul Sutton found himself in prison, with nothing but a life of drug dealing and burglary waiting for him on the outside. On his release, Simon vowed to escape. Making the decision to become an actor was the lifeline Simon needed. It led him to theatre school and then to acting in TV and films. During those years he began questioning his existence and asking the big life questions.
Who am I?
Why am I here?
What is truth?
And then love showed up and changed everything.

Transparent, honest, intimate and funny, Burglar to Buddha gives you the chance to experience life through the eyes of a boy trapped in a world of drugs, crime and fear, who evolves into a man focused on truth and love.

“It’s common to want to move on from the past experiences, especially the so-called bad ones, close the door, forget about them, and hope they go away with time. I could have done that. But instead, by revisiting my past and experiencing it again through writing about it, I moved through a deep subconscious healing process and experienced a depth of unconditional love for myself and others way beyond words could describe. I got to see myself in ways I had never seen, to connect to the little wounded me that just wanted love but was searching in all the wrong places.” ~ SPS

Tig Monk #24 | I Dont See Violence, I See Love Asking To Be Seen

Tig Monk #24 | I Dont See Violence, I See Love Asking To Be Seen

May 15, 2021

Is The Violence That I See Really Out There? Or Do I Put It There? As I look into the world, I don’t see people being violent, what I see is love asking to be seen, the truth asking to be seen. Greetings divine beings, thank you for tuning in, I appreciate your presence and would love to read your comments, let me know if these conversations and inquiries are benefiting you. This minisode is from the full conversation which I encourage you to go back and listen to if you havent already.
Tiger speaks to the violence we witness within and across the whole globe. I know it's difficult to face what we don't want to see and feel, but unless we do, it will keep getting louder and louder and more painful too.

"When I look at my own, what might be called violent tendencies, that expression of violence can only happen if I am being violent to myself. What shows up on the outside only shows the inside. If I am unkind or violent to another human being, it’s never about the other human being, its never personal. Its what’s happening on the inside which is a fear of loves loss, which is seeing myself as less than, which is not seeing the truth of what I am, which is violent, being expressed outwardly. 
To see this in myself I recognise that when someone else appears to be violent towards me, its not about me. It’s not personal at all." 

"Being human can be a painful journey of trying to connect with the sincerity of our heart’s desires. At times, the suffering and confusion seems only to lead us further away from what we deeply and sincerely crave. However, within this challenge, of suffering and confusion, is a profound and sacred opportunity. What seems to be against us, is actually, and always, a teacher that points us directly toward the fulfillment of everything we genuinely seek and long to connect with. Life, beyond all of our assumptions and judgments, is actually a landscape that’s designed to support this journey of connection; the question is, are we willing to open our eyes and see it?"  More from Tiger TigMonk Inlight Connect

Self Love Now with Yasmin DeGiorgio | Ep #2

Self Love Now with Yasmin DeGiorgio | Ep #2

May 8, 2021

We Cannot Separate Self Love From Our Spirituality. Our Depths Cannot Be Seen And Measured They Have To Be Interpreted, There Is No Map To The Inner World. Self Love Is that journey to know ourselves. We have to be the map makers of our own inner maps and the more we know our own inner map we can really help others by pointing them in the right direction.

"The terms self and love are somewhat contradictory because love is the only force that without fail will cause the self to cease to exist. Love is such a transcendental force that it literally breaks through the boundaries of the self and carries us into connection with all that lies beyond the self. Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Of course, giving that love to our own selves first is the prerequisite."

Yasmin is a serial entrepreneur and Yoga & meditation teacher. She takes the wisdom she learns from her yoga practice and applies them to wellness, business and leadership. She is the founder of The Grassy Hopper, a vegetarian and vegan eatery and Theobroma Cacao Collective, healthy vegan desserts and has spent the past two years building her latest project Sanya Eco Spa, which is a wellness Centre designed to help people heal learn and go-within.

Tiger Singleton #22 | You Are Not Broken, Nothing’s Missing

Tiger Singleton #22 | You Are Not Broken, Nothing’s Missing

April 24, 2021

I Don’t See You As Broken. I Don’t See Anything Wrong With You. I See You Pretending Not To Know What You Are. I see your wholeness. I see that nothing’s missing. In that, the landscape becomes play. "A high school dropout, Tiger spent a few years in what he refers to as “a self-created prison of meth, cocaine, and random homelessness.” During that time, however, Tiger began to notice the root of the problem — blame.

His bio reads that in a time when he was without a home and living in his car, he began to notice how much he was hating/judging other people for his current life condition. Life was showing him something. Life was trying to show him how much it hurt to blame and carry around this weight that felt powerless. That realization left him with a deep and powerful question, “What if they weren’t at fault, what if this was my own doing?”

He married, had children, and left his addictions behind. But attaining a feeling of success escaped him. He weighed almost 300 pounds. He was engulfed by depression and despair. At this low point in his life, he surrendered. And in this surrender, he had the epiphany that his perception of reality was a creation in his mind resulting from comparing himself to others. Moreover, comparison was not necessary because he had a fully-realized self, perfect in its own right. From this point, Tiger began a deep and powerful communication with Source. His understanding of life became so joyful and profound that he couldn’t help sharing it with others. As he shared, other people responded in amazing ways. Tiger Singleton, at one of the lowest points in his life, became the mystic Tigmonk and he didn’t even realise it."

Self Love Now with Shelley Sophia Crawford | Ep#1

April 17, 2021

Wholeness Is Our natural State When We Stop Forgetting & Remember. My passion is to serve each person I meet in the greater expression of their passion, purpose & service here on the planet. I love great mountains, rivers, oceans, and secret fresh water springs, I love flowers and trees and consorting with fairies. I prefer high places with good views, but have been found wandering along rivers in distant countries. I follow the Mystery, but have neither studied in a Mystery School, nor am I starting one. I believe there are timeless Pathways to unravel and be made whole again. I believe souls remember each other and that the past can be healed with love, and what that looks and feels like is unique to each person. More from Shelley

Charles Eisenstein #21 | Miracles Are Possible

Charles Eisenstein #21 | Miracles Are Possible

April 10, 2021

The Power We Have Is Far Beyond What The Rational Mind Understands. What I Thought Was Hopeless Is Not Hopeless. Enjoy this LIVE community conversation and Q&A with Charles. If it serves you then please share with friends to spread this wonderful interactive experience.

"

We can be part of a creative process that is far greater than ourselves and when we bow into service to that process, then miracles start happening around us. Including the miracle necessary for this world to heal. We are too far gone for any practical healing plan to work, we are not at that stage right now, we are at the stage where we need miracles. I am very specific what I mean by a miracle, It is something that is impossible from an old story but very possible from a new one and therefore when we experience one, it is like the light coming in from a crack in the shell of the universe showing us there is something beyond that universe. And that’s why a miracle that comes into your life is so impactful, if you accept it, if you take it in, and that’s why we have to take it all in, the darkness and light so that we are operating with a full deck, and we are in reality. Like those happenings in your life, of synchronicity, of psychedelic insights, of healing miracles, miracles of forgiveness and generosity, the things you can’t believe they are true almost, that its happening, you have to take those in fully, and you can’t believe its true, what those feelings mean, that’s like the bewilderment of reality dissolving into a bigger reality. And I can’t believe it, well you have to believe it, you have to accept the gift of these happenings, and why do I call it a gift? Because you didn’t make it happen, that’s why its called a miracle because you didn’t make it happen. You couldn’t have planned it, you couldn’t have forced it, yet it happened and that communicates 'WOW' we live in a generous universe. And what I thought was hopeless is not hopeless."

Charles Eisenstein is one of the most important voices in the world today. A teacher, speaker, philosopher and author focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. He is the author of Sacred Economics & The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible and more from Charles here; charles eisenstein

Chris Assaad #8 | This Is Our Moment, Time We’ve Been Waiting For

April 8, 2021

Come Back Into Your Heart, How Much We Can Love Is The Only Thing That We Can Change. "During these times of great planetary change and uncertainty, the many ways in which humanity is divided are becoming undeniable and the need for unity, harmony, and synergistic co-creation are evermore apparent. As we collectively lean deeper into this significant moment in history and look for a path forward, an ancient, timeless modality for catalyzing evolution and supporting healing is being rediscovered and renewed. As outdated societal norms, systems, and structures are crumbling—and those in positions of power, once entrusted to lead, are being more highly scrutinized—a new wave of rebel leadership is emerging to support the movement towards a more life-affirming, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable future." ~ CA
