A reset, a disparity, and a unusual upbringing

Nash discusses her long time side passions of real estate, enjoying time with female friends and encouraging them to leave greatest lives with the most money. How she ran off to Southeast Asia for a big reset, and came back and launched JenNash.com, empowering women to be more comfortable talking about money. Knowing you have to make a change when you are no longer doing something you want to do. Loving helping women know its OK to talk about money. The disparity between the majority of college attendees being women, but most high earning people are men. The “Wonder Woman” movie as a great example of a powerful woman character and powerful women getting something accomplished. “The Confidence Code” book, how the challenge is bigger than a wage gap, success attributed by female for ability needs to change, being raised in Christian household while having a mother as a member of Associate for Research and Enlightenment founded by Edgar Cayce, and how her upbringing had an impact on opening Nash’s mind and personality.

 

Talking too much, a cleansing channel, and a treehouse

How talking too much might be seen as a failure, growth in the little moments, Nash’s upbringing learning about reading auras, and foot rubs and ear rubs for tension release, and how she assumed everyone did this. How people who believe in reincarnation have answers to more, and trying to grow her own spiritual practice meditation daily to create a cleansing channel. Chan provides a mini intuitive reading, tuning into energetic imprint, which includes stories, trees and a treehouse, and silence, playfulness, with squirrels chasing one another.

Focusing on the happy, money is scary, and just sitting

Being supported by a team of “Jens” including Flume Digital’s Jennifer Segalini, trying to stay focused on the happy stuff, how life and money make people serious, a fear of aging without money, staying with the fun because fun is nurturing and will be sustaining, and how money is scary and makes people uncomfortable. Bringing fun, and allowing time each day for just sitting to sit. Plus, when doing nothing gives you more than something.

 

 

015 – Mini Intuitive Reading with Jillian Richardson of The Joy List – Joy and Jelly Beans

Spreading joy and being present in its discovery…

Jillian Richardson, freelance comedic writer and founder of The Joy List (bio), joins Julie Chan for a mini-intuitive reading and discussion on spreading joy and living a live of purpose. Recorded at the MouthMedia Network Studios.

Funny copywriting, mindful entrepreneurs, and creating The Joy List

Richardson reviews her background as a freelance writer, working with companies who want to make their companies laugh, the life of a funny copywriter, and how and why she created The Joy List when she moved to NYC to find and participate in great communities. Mindful entrepreneurs meetups, ways to meet people and deeply connect, eye gazing and connections and messages, balancing the emotions of looking for the next paycheck, and the contrast of being around people vs. the solitude of being a freelancer.

Jelly beans, trying everything, and relishing each moment

Chan shares a mini intuitive reading, aligning with one is on a soul level, the metaphor of jelly beans different flavors with colors so similar, life like a jar of jellybeans, each with own flavor, eating a handful, combining into a new singular flavor, or eat one and savor, tripped up by the hunt for the one best jellybean, which doesn’t exist. Being in the state of discovery, reflecting on when Richardson might assume she’d react a certain way without knowing the actual result, and being open. A child telling others what to do and being bossy as a child, being perceived as very smart. How the reading reinforced that the way she’s leading her life is not wrong. Being brought up being a very good job candidate, now working for herself. Jelly beans as things on her life that she could be doing, not shunning anything, trying everything and seeing what resonates best. Relating this to a romantic life, if jelly beans were men, her experiences in summer camp for adults, when the brain and heart connect, and relishing each moment that does exist.

Being present in discovery, being the happiest, and stepping away from technology

The image of a small child methodically lining up jelly beans, how that influences the people around Richardson on the choices she makes, doing new things while living in the moment while doing them, instead of doing something and thinking about the next one. Being present in the discovery, and what is joy for Richardson, the idea of community and who she surrounds herself with, and what makes her the happiest she’s ever been — and how The Joy List relates to this. Stepping away from technology and bring present with whom you’re with, and the joy found without technology.

Recorded at the MouthMedia Network Studios.

Wall Street vs. the Universe, quieting the mind, and not using guided meditation

Photo credit Marc RacoBravo discusses the importance of having proper barriers, having to be mindful at all times, working on Wall Street and embracing logic by day, then being open to the universe at other times. For legality purposes, leaving each world in its own, with no blame, no credit, and just being a “tool”. The key is quieting the mind. Why Bravo does not use guided mediation so that the mind can be quiet, letting whatever is going to come in, come in. How we hold ourselves back in psychic abilities, and it is a passive process, and the need to just feel and know things. Everyone has intuitive ability.

The Charles Dickens process, success without feeling successful, and a new chapter

Carmody touches on his significant experience in helping brands in doing content marketing and finding an authentic voice, etc. How his life was on the wrong track, and he started transforming his life with Tony Robbins. He knew it was time for big change, lost a lot of weight, ran his first marathon, now training for an Iron Man, and aiming to take it to the highest level possible and being the person he was born to be. Recalling how the moment of discovery was during the Charles Dickens process, knowing why you want to do things, visualizing his own death, breaking a lot of unhealthy habits, seeing his children crying over his grave, growing up Catholic and being very spiritual, until a priest violated him and he allowed himself to take his own faith away, evaporating faith. Being successful and doing well, but not feeling it inside. Carmody felt he would steal his life from his children, that he’d be a thief. The ability to go back to the moment of spiritual awakening like a flash, and how he now believes in an interconnected web of existence, and disassociating spirituality from the priest incident as a child. Trying to find how to integrate that with his business world, using the loss of a major client as an opportunity to begin a new chapter, focusing on things that really matter, and just “being here”.
