238: Why You Have to Give Yourself Permission
I cannot tell you how surreal and exciting it all still feels to see so many of you building your tribes and sharing your takeaways, stories and photos with me about A Tribe Called Bliss (ATCB). I think I have a bruise from regularly pinching myself to confirm that this is indeed still real life. ;)   One common theme I’m seeing so far among my ATCB readers is how it’s giving you permission in all areas of your lives. Permission to do the things you want to do. Permission to be fully you. Permission to forgive yourself. Permission to have the conversations you need to have. Most importantly, it’s giving you permission to release the old stories about yourself that simply aren’t true.   Witnessing this has also spurred me to find areas where I can give myself a bit more permission in my own life. Because lately, I’ve had to accept that I’m just not going to be on top of everything and things are going to slip through the cracks. Book tours are no joke. It takes a whole other level of energy and time management… and saying no. And in order to do this, I’ve had to give myself a whole lot of self-love and grace.   “We’ll never get to where we want to go without massive grace and love.”   It’s times like this when we need to ensure we’re creating fierce boundaries and focus on saying no. Saying no can be so hard, but it is imperative for self-preservation during our busy seasons. Otherwise, our “good” may never turn into our “great.”   “Give yourself space for the true, authentic gifts to come through.”   Thank you all again so much for your support of me and my book. I know this is a recurring ask, but if you love the message of this episode or of ATCB, please share with a friend or leave a review so we can reach our goal of 1 million tribes!   -- In This Episode Lori talks about:   Giving yourself permission in all areas of life Creative boundaries and saying no A Tribe Called Bliss   Resources:   Go to ATribeCalledBliss.com to find out the latest on Lori’s book tour and join the world’s biggest tribe book club   A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder Now available at loriharder.com/amazon or ATribeCalledBliss.com   Join me on the A Tribe Called Bliss Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571018952966750/   Check out my website at loriharder.com.

237: How and WHY to Step Into Your Truth NOW with Danette May
I am so thrilled to have my soul sister, Danette May, back on the show today. Not only was she the one that initially introduced me to the idea of a mastermind (hello, A Tribe Called Bliss!), but she’s one of the most authentic people I know. If you want to hear more about her story, please be sure to check out the resources for our previous episode (her journey thus far is incredible).   Today, we’re talking about her upcoming event, The Rise, and how it helps women make authentic connections by allowing them to be their authentic selves. Danette shares so many soul-shaking experiences and insights – all focused again on connecting with yourself to step into your highest purpose. Her wisdom is so relatable and I honestly could listen to her all day long.   I hope you enjoy our conversation and hopefully, we’ll both get to see you at her event in October (details in the Resources section). --    Question Highlights: What made you want to host The Rise event? Where did you come from – when did your soul speak to you, what did life look like and when did you first take action? Why did your soul sign up for this event? When you think of your event, what are some of the things you want to have at the event? What can you tell those who are feeling called to go? What does it mean to see yourself? If you had to name three things that you think makes someone transform, what would they be? What has having a female connection in your life done for you? Why do events have the capability to shift your world? What is something you want people to know about the work you’re doing with The Rise?   In This Episode We Talk about: Connecting authentically with others by being authentically you What Danette did when fear hit her surrounding The Rise event Soul contracts The cellular remembering of your power What happens when you don’t listen to your soul Showing up so you can see yourself Speaking the truth to your soul The power of events What true, raw sisterhood means to Danette What Lori will be performing at The Rise event And so much more…   Quotes “If you’re not unraveling, you’re not growing.”   “Movement is like cleaning out the cobwebs of your soul.”   “You get to choose your environment.”   “If I can love myself and get into my own radical self-acceptance, I’ve got a best friend for life.”   “Your self-love is your biggest work.”   “Rise within so you can rise up.”   “You get to be happy just because you exist.” --  Danette May is a motivational speaker, #1 best-selling author of seven health and women empowerment books, celebrity trainer, and mother.

236: This Is STOPPING YOU From Having the Friends and Relationships You Want
I am still feeling the energy of my first book tour stop last night at Wanderlust in West Hollywood. I can’t even begin to describe the energy that filled that room. And if you were there last night, thank you so much for being there and for supporting me and my book. The event was proof that this book really is creating a new way to connect, support and see each other and ourselves in a whole new light.   Can I tell you a crazy story about this particular venue? Four years ago, before this book was even a glimmer in my eye, I was there for Gabrielle Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie book launch. I had a lot of fear going into this event, and felt as though I wasn’t “good enough” to hang around this group of people – but I remember also being super excited and happy to be there. Long story short, it was amazing and I found myself sitting on the floor and dreaming of the day I held my own book launch event there. Let’s just say it’s quite clear that manifestation works!   This book tour stop (and I anticipate all the others will feel the same way) reaffirmed that all women are looking for deeper connections with female friends. People are done with the games of jealousy, comparison and fear, and are ready to create authentic connections. Everyone is eager to take their relationships from superficial to deep in order to create the safety net we all so desperately need.   I hope I get to see you at one of my upcoming stops for even more magical connections! And regardless if you’re able to attend, if you love my book or this podcast and feel called to do so, I would be so grateful if you shared my book with other women. My goal is still a million tribes and I can’t do it without you!   -- In This Episode Lori talks about:   The new way of connecting, supporting and seeing each other and ourselves The safety net that having a tribe provides A Tribe Called Bliss   Resources: Go to ATribeCalledBliss.com to find out the latest on Lori’s book tour and join the world’s biggest tribe book club A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder Now available at loriharder.com/amazon or ATribeCalledBliss.com   Join me on the A Tribe Called Bliss Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571018952966750/  Check out my website at loriharder.com.

235: How to Replace Your Habits to Connect with Your Higher Purpose with Tara Mackey
I am in awe when it comes to the resilience of the human spirit and body, and today’s guest, Tara Mackey, just reaffirms my belief. With a tumultuous childhood that lead to a drug prescription at the young age of 13 subsequent prescriptions thereafter, it’s not surprising that Tara once came close to ending her own life. However, seven years ago, she finally realized that the help she sought didn’t come in an orange bottle or from the people who she’d allowed into her life. She knew the drugs (and diagnoses) were holding her back and as a result, she quit all 14 drugs cold-turkey (she doesn’t advise this method) and hasn’t looked back since.   Tara now takes pride in educating others to get off drugs and even more in helping people recognize what’s holding them back and then guiding them to create new habits that propel them forward. I resonate so deeply with Tara’s message as she also truly believes that we all are put on this planet with a purpose. And once we’re able to pinpoint the habits that are holding us back we can then create replacement habits and finally tap into our own intuition and purpose. Tara’s new book, “WILD Habits,” even walks you through the steps to do just that.   I think everyone will relate on some level to this episode and I can’t wait to hear all of the takeaways from this episode and her soon-to-be-released book.   --      Question Highlights: What do you do now and how did you get started on that path? At what point did your intuition start talking to you and tell you to do something different? What were some of the most influential experiences in your life that got you to those moments? Can you explain what you mean when you say “numb?” What do you share with people around what it really looks like when you step into the journey of your purpose? Growing up, were there influences in your life that sparked a feeling of purpose and reminded you of who you were? What were some of your labels and how did you get over them? Do you have any labels now that have come with success that hold you up to some expectation? How do we change out our habits and what does that look like? How do we begin to make the space to follow the WILD Method steps? What was your focus for energy in your book? Do you believe everyone on the planet has a purpose?   In This Episode We Talk about: How Tara got off drugs and now helps educate people to do the same How Tara helps people recognize what’s holding them back and then create new habits that propel them forward Why harmful habits are all distractions from your true purpose The importance of recognizing what you’re using to numb out Labels How drugs impact your labels and your behavior Why it’s OK to change and grow all the time Tara’s WILD Method Listening to your intuition The mind/body connection The importance of movement What toxicity in all forms looks like Why it’s important to step away from judgment and criticism How social media distracts us from our true purpose Figuring out what to put your energy toward And so much more…   Quotes “I wanted help but help hadn’t come in the form of orange bottles or the people that I had let in.”   “We numb because we’re afraid of living up to our full potential.”   “Focus on adding up the moments that bring us joy because that brings us closer to who we truly are.”   “People will know you as whatever you do in that moment.”   “It’s not weird that you’re changing and growing all the time.”   “If you’re not moving your body other things get stagnant.”   “Become more conscious of why you’re doing what you’re doing.”   --   Tara Mackey is the best-selling author of Cured by Nature, a soul singer and global motivational speaker. She is the Founder and CEO of The Organic Life, recognized as one of the Healthiest Companies of the Year. Tara has been honored as Woman of the Year and named one of San Diego’s Most Admired CEOs of 2017. Mackey travels the world as an activist, inspiring people to make bold and brave moves, take actions to live their dreams and create a more sustainable and empowered world.   Her next book, WILD Habits: Unlock Your Mind, Improve Your Health and Release Your True Power (SelectBooks, Inc. May 8, 2018) shares all of the specific mental practices and natural home remedies Tara uses in her own life for a healthy spirit, mind, and body.   Tara studied biology and worked as an MLT at Cornell before moving to California in 2011 to pursue her passions in health, acting and music. Tara began her blog and company, The Organic Life, in 2012 to share her wellness journey. Mackey’s bohemian spirit, talent and drive has generated a booming, engaged and inspired following. After receiving inquiries from her devoted followers for her picks for organic and healthy skincare products, Tara launched Genetix in November 2017.   Tara’s work, journey and life has been featured by Forbes, Teen Vogue, Glamour Magazine, Yoga Digest, Byrdie, Readers Digest, Woman’s Day, ABC, Fox, The CW, PIX, MSN, Mental Floss, San Diego Business Journal, Essence Magazine, Travel & Leisure Magazine, Well + Good, Livestrong, Brides Magazine and many more.

234: How To Look Forward To Every Single Day
  The day is finally here! My book is officially out as of yesterday and honestly, I just don’t have the words to describe all the emotions I’m going through. This is definitely the best I’ve ever felt, but there certainly were days where things definitely felt challenging. But let me tell you, everything I’ve went through to get to this point was worth it!   So today, I have a simple message and it’s that we can’t fully experience the good of anything without enduring the challenging or dark moments. This is why when we reach where we want to go – wherever that is – that we really take time to feel GOOD and celebrate it!   When we know there’s always going to be a balance of dark and light or good and bad, we can begin to look forward to each and every day. Stop resisting or avoiding the things that make you heart sing and just go for it – regardless of the outcome. This is how our soul wants us to show up in the world (and everyone else wants to see it, too).   “Your joy elevates the world.”   So take a minute and really reflect, what are you holding onto that’s blocking the things you desire? Now, take a moment and figure out one small step that will help you toward it. Better yet, tell a friend or your tribe of women who support you.   Speaking of tribe… have you gotten my book yet? If you have, I would love if you shared with me what resonated with you (so far). Also, in order to reach my goal of ONE MILLION tribes, if you feel called to do so, it would help so much if you could rate and review the book online so more women find it and create their own tribes as well. And if you haven’t gotten the book, no worries, you can still get a copy at a bookstore near you or by visiting one of the links in the Resources section.     -- In This Episode Lori talks about:   The dichotomy of dark and light and why we need it Why the most important relationship you have is with yourself A Tribe Called Bliss   Resources:   Go to ATribeCalledBliss.com to find out the latest on Lori’s book tour and join the world’s biggest tribe book club   A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder Now available at loriharder.com/amazon or ATribeCalledBliss.com   Join me on the A Tribe Called Bliss Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571018952966750/   Check out my website at loriharder.com.

232: How to Make a SOUL-GUIDED DECISION
Wow, we are less than a week away from the release of my book and I am so freaking excited – I can’t take it! And I cannot thank all of you – my supportive tribe – enough for your support so far. So many of my sisters have gone above and beyond to support me and my book, and in return, I’m trying to do the exact same for them by sharing their passions – books, podcasts etc. I’m a firm believer in bringing awareness to ALL women because that’s exactly what my book is about. Imagine what this world would look like with countless women supporting each other. Hello, energetic boomerang!   Today I’m sharing yet another excerpt from my book and this section, called Soul Talk, is all about really listening to what our soul wants and helping us step into our highest purpose.   “I want to clarify right now that even when you are listening to your soul it won’t always feel good at first. The difference is, when it’s a soul-guided decision, it will feel aligned and ultimately guide you to your bliss.”   Because this isn’t always the easiest task, my book walks you through how to tune in and really listen to your soul. It will help you move through what you’re going through – no matter what it is – and help you step into who you truly are.   I hope you’ve been enjoying the sneak peeks of the book and cannot wait for you to have it in your hands. I seriously have the best audience and your support means the world to me. If you feel called to help me get my book’s message out even more, please share this podcast with others. Much love to you all!   -- In This Episode Lori talks about:   Bringing awareness to and supporting other women Making soul-guided decisions to guide you to your bliss A Tribe Called Bliss Book Club   Resources:   Go to ATribeCalledBliss.com to find out the latest on Lori’s book tour and join the world’s biggest tribe book club   A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder Now available for pre-order at loriharder.com/amazon   Join me on the A Tribe Called Bliss Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571018952966750/   Check out my website at loriharder.com.

231: How Healing Your Relationship with FOOD Can Help You LIVE A FULFILLED LIFE with Mel Wells
  Take a peek at Mel Wells’ Instagram feed and you’ll see instantly why I love talking with her and following her amazing journey of self-love. As an actress at 18 on a UK soap opera, Mel was exposed early on to the pressures of the performing arts world and keeping a “thin” figure. This pressure eventually led to eating disorder behavior and she remained in that self-described black hole for seven years.   Shortly after that time, she left that world, rediscovered her self-worth and rewrote her mindset. She now helps other women get out of the diet culture and change their relationship with food and their bodies. Because as Mel describes, by healing our relationships with food we can also change our relationships with our souls.   As a person who’s struggled with my relationship with food and my body, I related on all fronts of Mel’s messages. There really is a parallel between healing that relationship and using that same knowledge in all areas of your life. It ultimately comes down to loving yourself and giving yourself freedom. This was such a heartfelt conversation and I can’t wait to hear what you resonated with the most.   --      Question Highlights: What got you started on your path? What was it that finally broke the cycle for you? What do you tell someone who feels stuck? How do you calm those fight or flight thoughts? When you get psychological cravings what can you do? What does it actually look like when you support other women? What does being authentic mean for you in your life? What are some tools you’re relying on to get you through your recent move? What journey do you want to take women on at your Self Love Summit? Did you have any limiting beliefs around creating relationships with women? Tell me about your new book, Hungry for More.   In This Episode We Talk about: How Mel healed her relationship with food and her body (and soul) Connecting to your bigger vision Choosing movement that feels good and isn’t a punishment Trusting your body and that it wants you to live a healthy life What to do when you get psychological cravings – that aren’t hunger related Pursuing a fulfilled life Being in integrity with your values Letting go of old beliefs and obtaining new ones The inevitability of change and growth Mel’s TedXTalk and how she reframed her disappointment when they couldn’t publish it online due to audio difficulties The importance of sharing the things that go wrong And so much more…   Quotes “When you’re able to trust your body’s natural intuition it helps you tune in with your soul’s intuition.”   “If we want to feel free, then freedom is what we have to choose.”   “Choosing more control won’t get you more freedom.”   “The more I love myself, the more I’m able to lift other women up and genuinely mean it from the heart.”   “Be willing to take the masks off and just be completely comfortable with who you are and where you’re at.” --   Mel Wells is a Certified Health Coach, Eating Psychology Coach, International Speaker and Bestselling Author of widely acclaimed, ‘The Goddess Revolution: Make Peace With Food, Love Your Body and Reclaim Your Life’, hailed by OK! magazine, 'the new body bible for women'. She is Hay House’s youngest author and is a leading women’s expert in her field. Mel dedicates her time to helping women worldwide ditch dieting for good, make peace with food and love their healthy bodies. Mel coaches’ women through her popular online Academy, and luxury Goddess Retreats held in Bali, Thailand and the UK.   Mel empowers women to stop fad diets and challenges their entire belief system around food and their bodies, by working on the relationship they have with themselves.   Mel has been featured in Forbes Under 30, Women's Health, Cosmopolitan, The Independent and has been voted No. 1 Young Female Entrepreneur to Watch in the UK by About Time Magazine. She made her TEDx debut in Switzerland last December.   Her next book, “Hungry For More,” encourages women to nourish their soul cravings, feed their dreams and live truly fulfilled lives. “Hungry For More”, published by Hay House is due for release Summer 2018.

230: Have You Ever Thought “There’s Got To Be MORE?”
  As I said before, I’m sharing excerpts from A Tribe Called Bliss up until the release of it and today I’m reading a section called, “There’s Got to Be More.” And it’s all about confronting the thing(s) that are in the way of living in your purpose. It was a perfect part to call out as I practiced exactly what I talked about, and I experienced a new level of clarity as a result.   “The things we need to confront will not stop eating at us until we confront them or live in our purpose.”   From the start of publishing my book, I knew I had a responsibility to share/address some things with my family before it came out in regard to my feelings. So I set an intention to have a conversation with my mom and come from the most loving, compassionate place and do my best not to hurt her or any other family member in the process.   Great news – the call was a success and we were able to clear the energy and open up opportunities for something deeper. Why do I share this? Because I’m on a path to share what’s helping me in the moment – and today was one of those moments. It’s not always easy, but that’s what you get from my quickies – real, raw and vulnerable. All in the hopes that it helps you and helps you step into your purpose.   Cannot wait to see you on the book tour or in our book club!   -- In This Episode Lori talks about:   Confronting people or issues that are in the way of living in your purpose A Tribe Called Bliss Book Club Lori’s new book, A Tribe Called Bliss   Resources:   Go to ATribeCalledBliss.com to find out the latest on Lori’s book tour.

229: How to MAKE A LIVING Doing What You LOVE with Cathy Heller
  A few months ago, I had the honor of being a guest on Cathy Heller’s podcast, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, and I am thrilled that I get to have her on mine. Not only could I talk to her for hours and hours, but she has an incredible story that I know so many of you will resonate with.  From early on, Cathy knew she was meant for more and sought to find her purpose in the world (she admits there were multiple attempts). She changed her major to World Religions to truly find out if there was “more,” and ended up taking a life-changing three-year trip to Jerusalem. After returning, Cathy moved to L.A. to see if she could make a career out of her love for singing and music. It took a lot of work, but she eventually landed a record deal. Unfortunately, her record label dropped her before it even had a chance to release. Feeling defeated at first, she bailed on the music and landed herself other “practical” jobs ranging from real estate and casting to floral and interior design. None of these fulfilled her though and she set out determined to find other ways to make money singing and songwriting – and help others at the same time.   Fast-forward to today and you’ve likely heard Cathy’s songs on your favorite TV shows, ads and more. She cracked the code to making money while fulfilling her purpose and now helps others do the same. In the past year, Cathy has taken it to another level as well by creating her podcast, which takes her knowledge and easily parallels it to anyone else’s passion project.   Cathy keeps it real and is the first to say that no one wants to see perfect – they want authenticity. Once you listen, I know you’ll agree. Tune in to hear all the goodness Cathy shares with us. I know that you’ll wrap up your listening session feeling just a little lighter and like you’re one small step closer to stepping into your purpose.   --      Question Highlights: Can you tell us a bit about your background and your journey that led you to where you are now? What pulled you to keep going through the various stage of your career/life? How do we get people involved and excited? Outreach leads to some of the same questions when it comes to content too, right? What do you say to someone who struggles with perfection?   In This Episode We Talk about: Cathy’s life and career journey that led her to where she is today The many attempts made by Cathy to find her purpose – record deals, real estate, interior design etc. The online course Cathy created to teach others how to license their songs to TV and film How Cathy transitioned her knowledge to the podcast platform The difference between a hobby and business Finding your audience and who you’re creating things for How you can make a living by doing four specific things Why outreach and the value you can add is important Creating content Authenticity Why we must be willing to be uncomfortable Consistency and showing up And so much more…   Quotes “The mind likes to suffer, but I don’t need to.”   “The opposite of depression is purpose.”   “Success without meaning or fulfillment is an ultimate failing.”   “What makes any business works is radical empathy.”   “Vulnerability is the most powerful tool anyone has.”   “Wherever you are, there’s something you have that you can help somebody with.”   “We are all in beta – no one has it together.”   “Be willing to be a mess and do it anyway.” --   Cathy Heller is a fire hose of inspiration. She’s the host of the popular podcast, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, and was recently given the No. 1 spot on iTunes show recommendation list for the New Year. Each week, Cathy encourages thousands and thousands of listeners to find more purpose in their life and get paid to do what they love full time. She started out as a singer/songwriter and found success licensing her music to TV, film and ads. Quickly she became a stand-out in her field and was featured in magazines like Billboard, Variety and the LA Weekly. She started teaching online courses to artists which were quite successful and she’s been asked to speak at Podcast Movement, Social Media Worldwide, UCLA, Berklee School of Music, The Grammy Museum and the Billboard Film/TV Conference.   Since starting her podcast, Cathy’s show has been mentioned in the NY Times and Inc. Magazine’s “Top 9 podcasts.” She’s been featured several times by Apple and her fans are resonating with how genuine she is. Throughout the show, she has interviewed creative entrepreneurs like designer Jonathan Adler, make-up artist Bobbi Brown, dancer Mandy Moore, fashionista Tamara Mellon, novelist Emily Giffin and Gretchen Rubin to name a few. Cathy’s girl-next-door approach and out-of-the-box hustling style is helping so many people feel hopeful and excited about what lies ahead.

I definitely was living the life of who I thought I should be. Now that I'm be authentic to myself I am definetely hearing the I change from a close friend but others are like you can tell your more open and happier. I couldn't understand why the close friend couldn't see my change as good. This podcast definitely gave me a new perspective. thanks

Another informative podcast, however I was tempted many times to stop listening because of all the times the guest said "like" and "right". I felt I was listening to a high school valley girl.

omg!! I got all the "feels" from this one. my body is in so much pain from protecting myself from experiencing life because I don't want to get emotionally hurt again. for people that know me, they see me as an adventure seeker always out in nature paddleboarding running hiking camping. I'm always doing something because I'm trying to feed my hungry hungry soul. I always feel like I need to be doing something. "whoah" just got it, proving myself. yup, that's it. thank you for an amazing podcast today. guess I need to sit with this for a bit..... I will be doing the 30 day challenge
