Deep Dive (Pivot Podcast)
What’s the difference between affirmations that feel fake and those that actually work? How can you move your body in a way that also transforms your mind?
My friend Jenny Blake and I had a great discussion on the Pivot Podcast about all this and more, concepts from my new book, Mantras in Motion: Manifesting What You Want Through Mindful Movement.
Some of the juicy topics:
*How I managed it all when I found out I was pregnant and got a book deal in the same week
*Mantras in Motion: taking concepts like confidence, self-esteem, positive self-talk, compassion, and inspired action to another level
*My method of using these intellectual concepts that we all know and love and getting them into our body by speaking affirmations out loud while we move
*How to shift your perspective to a place of empowerment
*How I was tested personally and professionally, and how these practices helped me return to a state of love and peace more quickly
*Loving your body at all different phases of life
*Pivoting from acting to the fitness world, and making a commitment to joy and creativity
*My North Star question: Is this going to bring you joy? Keep doing things as long as they are fun.
*How most art forms are about getting to know yourself
*Appreciating a beautiful career is a beautiful craft in itself
*Being with your feelings, whatever they are
*The importance of unpacking subconscious beliefs
*There is something to be said for “faking it until you make it” when it comes to affirmations
*Hurtful feelings get stored in the body, and we live those thoughts
*When you start to move, you’re sending oxygen to your muscles and whispering a new idea in there
*Get in tune with the feelings you want to have. It’s not about the thing, the relationship, the body—it’s about how it’s going to make you feel when you have it.
