Your Brain is Not for Thinking

podcast Jan 12, 2021


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Here is a question to consider. 

Who would you be without your thoughts? 

In fact, who is the person you call “I” who is listening to this podcast right now? 

I know that is a deep question to consider.  But it points to an idea that most people are unaware of- and that is that we are addicted to our thoughts without realizing it.  We continually look to our thoughts for our experience of our lives-- for what satisfies us, what dissatisfies us, what we should and shouldn’t be doing in our lives, how other people should be behaving.  And no one really talks about this in terms of addiction-- we only use the word addiction when we are talking about substances we use to numb ourselves to our uncomfortable emotions-- like drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work, exercise.  But that doesn’t mean that the only way addiction can manifest is from substances. 

We have thoughts...

podcast Dec 29, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  This past week, I turned 50.  And I want to share with all of you how my Inner Critic can wreak her havoc, even on the heels of one of my greatest accomplishments in my life so far.  So, the week leading up to my 50th birthday might have been one of the best week’s of my life.  I launched my book Dethroning Your Inner Critic:  the four step journey from self doubt to self empowerment, and it became a number one international best seller on Amazon.  So you can imagine how over the moon I was.  And I had a wonderful 50th birthday, and felt so much love and abundance and gratitude.  And then, on the morning of my 50th birthday, I woke up with an elephant of fear sitting on top of my chest, that was my special gift from my Inner Critic, who by the way is named worrying willhemenia, which you will read about when you read my book.  Now, because of the work of Dethroning...

Knowing the Difference Between Clean and Dirty Pain Can Change Your Life

podcast Dec 15, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  Today I want to talk about ending unnecessary suffering in our lives, by knowing the difference between clean and dirty pain.  I would say that most of my clients work with me because in some area of their life, they are suffering. They are struggling in their business or career, they are struggling with a relationship, they are struggling with getting healthy, they are struggling with parenting, or they are struggling with feeling good about themselves.  And that is because they have been swimming in the river of misery that has been created by THEIR thoughts, and they aren’t even aware of their role in creating their pain.  For most people, their automatic thoughts are a complete blind spot-- most people who are suffering attempt to change their circumstances without changing their thoughts.  And this is what continues to perpetuate unnecessary suffering.  This is what is known...

How to Reach the Next Stage of Your Personal Evolution

podcast Dec 01, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Every next level of life will demand a different you -- Leonardo DiCaprio. 

And this is exactly what is happening in my life, and in the lives of all of my clients.  As we continue to step into this new version of ourselves, it is not all sunshine and rainbows.  In fact, it feels like the more I am living the life that I set out to create, the more my Inner Critic is going berserk.  And this is why I love supporting people to get to the next level of THEIR lives… because it DEMANDS a different you to get yourself there. 

You can’t get to the next level of your life with the same mind that got you to where you are now.  It’s going to take dissolving parts of yourself that you have been dragging around with you for your whole life, so that you can make the space for the DIFFERENT you to emerge. 

And that is exactly the work that I continue to do in my own life.  I use my...

The Hidden Side of Judgement

podcast Nov 17, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners.  Today I want to talk about what judgment really IS.  Whether it is judgment of ourselves or others, it all comes from the same place.  Right now as I am recording this podcast, it is right before the 2020 election.  And there is so much judgment out there.  So much ‘I am right, you are wrong” and so much anger!  I am not going to talk about what’s going on in the world right now.  I want to talk about how YOU can return yourself to what is essentially all of our natural states, which is happiness and success, in any area of your life.  And accessing that natural state is possible, even in the uncertain world we are living in right now.  See, life will always be messy.  Life was messy before, life will be messy again.  I am in the business of working hard to boil things down to their essence and teach the universal principles that apply to ALL...
