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.

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.

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.

Balance, pace, and positivity in entrepreneurialism…

Veronica Owens, Co-Founder of TiM (a web based digital on-boarding system for the entertainment industry – bio) joins Julie Chan for an emotional and revealing mini intuitive reading, interpretation and coaching at the MouthMedia Network Studio at Voyager HQ.

Fixing a problem, loss, tragedy and challenges, and an Inner Empowerment Tool Kit

Owens discusses how work in film production made her and her business partner realize how inefficient the on-boarding systems were, no one would complain or solve the issues, so they risked everything to try to solve it. Freelancers work long days, no one feels responsible to fix problem because no overarching system, moving job to job, not really “your problem” to fix it. Their system allows the same crewmember to fill out what normally would be massive physical paperwork by submitting with a few clicks. She stresses that TiM wasn’t fully and solely their idea, but instead “everyone’s idea”. Creating something from scratch is challenging and rewarding, startups are soul incubators, scary and empowering that it can stop existing at any moment, anything is real if you believe in it, having to let go of external things you define yourself with, everything around you can crumble to bits, but finding strength in yourself no matter what‘s crumbling around you. A pivotal moment of loss, tragedy and challenges. Losing everything around her, she hadn’t nourished her own happiness. Everyone has the power to create and shape their future, remembering what you love outside of work, needing to be able to believe in yourself first. Anything can change in a moment, but one’s own strength can’t be taken. An Inner Empowerment Tool Kit, chanting, Buddhism, yoga, how she found that kit and how she lost it. Needing to get them back, easy to be hard on yourself, easy to be sad. Eating right helps with stress too, and support from others is important.

Dr. Steve goes in depth about the discoveries and research of Dr. Michael Cotton, the originator of technique. How an awakening transformation in the brain’s prefrontal cortex can allow the harnessing of abilities, and studies which scientifically help us understand core levels and measure activity in the brain. How techniques can allow people to live as a fearless and authentic self and allow that to be manifested through action in the world. The informal studies of Dr. Penny Montgomery on biofeedback and how they found long chains of beta waves in the brain creating more energy in brain, less stress and ability to be focused and clear. And alpha waves, and what this means for people who can be headed on a downward path if they are not already doing something.
