Like I mentioned here I am so grateful for Mastin Kipp’s Daily Love Extravaganza. There so much wisdom packed in there that I took some notes throughout as I listened to so many influential spiritual leaders. The thing about inspiration is that each time you listen you get a different nugget or ah-ha moment, not because the information is different, but because you are different. That’s why Podcasts are so great, because you can re-listen many times and still get something new, that’s why I love this platform for communication and why I decided to start WWRadio in the first place.
So today I thought I would share with you my ah-ha moments from TLD Extravaganza this year. These are my unedited notes that I took for myself, so hopefully they are organized in a way that makes sense to you. Below is what struck me from each talk I had a chance to listen to, there were so many great people interviewed as it was quite the lineup so I had trouble choosing each day but these are the ones I was able to fit in. I hope my jumbled cliff notes of the Extravaganza inspire you too.
From the welcome videos I loved these quotes:
“Life is rigged in your favor.” -RUMI
& this line from Mastin:
The first interview I listened to was Serena Dyer & here’s what stuck out from her talk:
-We tend to identify with what we do (i.e. “I am a college student”) and you identify with that and then when it’s over what are you? until you have a job you’re nothing. Now what?
-When you’re having a bad day it’s okay feel it, but get out of it quickly so it doesn’t spiral and keep adding on negative things. Figure out your road map for getting out of it and have it in your back pocket.
-“If i’m not grateful for it yet, then I’m not done with it.” (She was saying this in relation to tough things in life)
Steps from Serena to get out of feeling stuck quick:
-Look for gratitude
-Help someone else to help yourself.
Next up was the amazing Sara Jenks whose work centers around the concept of emotional freedom from food:
-When you’re eating when you’re not hungry, you are craving something…ie. love, attention etc.
-After a meal think about how you want to feel in the next 45 minutes.
-Have 5 or 6 activities before going to food that you LOVE like: shower, journal, walk, call a friend, blog, dance, movies, magazines, phone calls, online shopping, regular shopping and other healthier ways to cope with your uncomfortable feelings.
-When traveling bring a candle and a pillow case to feel like home.
Next was the amazing Kate Northrup, the finance guru (who will be on WWRadio later this month)
-You have to just start doing it.
-No one who was struggling with money ever changed the world. We all deserve abundance and need it to help people.
-Make a list of things you’re amazing, both accomplishments and qualities mix. She calls this ‘glory boarding’ to have on hand on a regular basis.
-When asking for a raise- think of how it will benefit the employer or servicer and how they will show up more and be more committed if they pay more.
-When something good/ flow happens, notice where and how it feels in your body. “Imprinting your cells with your victory” to feel abundant. → when a good thing happens ie. more subscribers, money etc. Roll the shoulders back & listen to the body let the heart open. etc. feel it in the body and remember that feeling so you can get there more often.
-“We never actually know another human’s experience.”
& of course you know I couldn’t miss Gabby Bernstein‘s interview…
-“When you pray you are asking & when you meditate you are listening.”
– Meditation is the best way to hear and listen to your ~ing/ Inner Guide. Through meditation you can really listen to it.
-“Daily commitment to meditation has allowed me to have a deeper relationship with my inner guide.”
-“The inspiration is free on the internet. What people are paying for is facilitated.”
“If you are a teacher who loves teaching, the more people will want to learn from you.”
Then I listened to Mariel Hemingway & was introduced to her for the first time since Manhattan…
– Start moving each day in bed. Even just pull feet over head, roll around ankles.
– Even just hang head over bed.
(she said so much more good stuff, but I think I listened to a lot of these on walks so I didn’t write much down.)
Then I was blown away by Laurie Gerber‘s talk on honesty, it was so authentic & I learned so much.
-“If I think something 3 times I have to say it.”
– Do not get honest if you feel better than with someone or you’re judging them…wait.
Then was the classic….Marianne Williamson….
– Believing we are not our bodies and we are in our bodies and our bodies are in our clothes -promotes equality.
– Enlightenment is the transition from body identification to spirit identification.
And last but not least was Rev. Michael & Rickie Beckwith…
-“Jesus wasn’t a Christian and Buddha wasn’t a Buddhist, they were awake!”
There were so many more great nuggets said but these are all the ones that struck me that I just had to write down. Can’t wait til the next one, thank you so much Mastin! He is such an amazing interviewer and guided these conversations in such cool directions.
