#162 Recently, I had the pleasure of jumping on the Self Love Podcast with Kim Morrison. We had an incredible conversation as we dove into the topic of self-love. Now as a man, I don’t find myself diving into some of these conversations that often, but I felt what was unearthed through Kim’s questions and guidance is an important topic and I wanted to share it with you listeners here. Enjoy! 🙂

Show Notes From The Original Podcast:
“I truly believe if I want my daughter to be happy, then I need to be happy. If I need her to express love then I need to express love. If I want her to… whatever that might be, I know I need to be that person myself. So the more I can work on myself slowly each day, bit by bit, small gains every day instead of trying to compress everything for a month and then forgetting about it doesn’t work like that right? So the more I see Ava the more it makes me want to work on being the best version of myself so I know that it will reflect directly back in her as well.” Guy Lawrence
This is a phenomenal interview with an extraordinary soul. Guy Lawrence is a coach, speaker, wellness advocate and entrepreneur. He is the founder of Let It In, a program designed to help people bridge the gap between the life they live and the life they truly want to live. using meditation and the language of neuroscience. This is facilitated via live workshops, retreats and the online Live In Flow membership-based community program. He also supports people via his podcast called ‘Let It In with Guy Lawrence’. These include conversations with pioneering experts that go well beyond conventional health, wealth, and wisdom to inspire change in our lives.
We talk about how our thoughts drive behaviours and how the four pillars of wellness can show us how to do life with courage ~ awareness, acceptance, intention and inspired action can help us to do life well. We dive deep into the neuroscience and how we can lean into ourselves. We need to reclaim our power and energy, create habits, rituals and practices, and take action in this work. Create stable foundations and intentionally direct ourselves towards what it is that we truly want, based on how we feel. These skills are required to do humanness well.
One of the best practices Guy recommends to feel completely safe and aware is in meditation and having gratitude. The greatest meditation you do is when your eyes are open not when we close our eyes in silence for 10 or 30 minutes a day. Learn to generate real feelings of gratitude to connect back in. Like sitting in nature for two weeks as you can imagine would revitalise us in ways we cannot even articulate.
The heart is a great gateway and a beautiful part of our body to bring awareness for gratitude. If we are not willing to practice self-preservation then the future self may stay locked. You can energetically connect with yourself and others more easily. He said the most simple things in life are often the most beautiful and it makes you question what really matters. And his greatest message is to look fear in they eye and surrender to what is.
And one of the most beautiful parts of this conversation is each time Guy mentions his precious baby daughter Ava.
