Podcast Episode 20 - Show Notes---------------------------------Do you believe in a higher power? Do you believe that there is no such thing as coincidence?If you answered yes – or even a maybe, I want you to consider how the word “yes” can be the greatest blessing of your life.If you are learning about personal development or manifestation, one of the first things that you will hear is that you can have any dream or desire you want. You just have to put it out there – either by prayer or by telling the universe. Manifestation is all about creating a physical something from just thinking about it. You are told to not worry about “HOW” it will happen, you just need to make it clear that you desire that particular thing. The universe, God, or your higher power will put the pieces together to help you attain that goal.But really... how does it work?In this podcast, we talk about HOW it really does happen – and you may be surprised that sometimes it’s as simple as yes.Links:• OC Food Bank Volunteers:• Team Rubicon Website:• Built to Serve: The Story of Team Rubicon:• Your Today Story:• Door Dash: available as a video podcast: 🏆 TOP Podcast Favorites:BONUS MEDITATION: Daily Abundance MeditationsImposter Syndrome Finding Your PurposeHow to Build Your Dream LifeWhat is Manifestation and How To Do It
We are designed to want to have every person start at the same starting point. Remember in elementary school when the kids would line up to race?  There was a line that we would all stand on. Then someone would say "GO", everyone would start running towards the finish line, and there would be a winner.It's the same in races everywhere - even the Olympics. And if someone starts before they are supposed to, they could be disqualified.But in real life, the starting points are all over the place. Some are way ahead, and some are way behind. Here's the difference. In life, every person is designed for success. Every person can be the winner.  That is why the starting point doesn’t matter.If you have been struggling with comparison and feeling like you are always two steps behind everyone else, this podcast is for you.In this podcast, I will debunk the belief that your starting point is holding you back or keeping you at a disadvantage. You will see that your starting point is exactly where it is supposed to be in order for you to experience the most from your journey. Everything is rigged in your favor!

**Trigger Warning**-------If you’ve listened to the award-winning podcast Dirty John or watched the show on Netflix, you probably recognize the name Terra Newell. Side note: If you haven’t listened to the podcast or watched the show, do it before you read the rest of this post, because it contains spoilers! As a refresher, Terra Newell is the heroine of this terrifying true story. When her mother’s ex-boyfriend, John Meehan, viciously attacked her in the parking garage of her apartment complex with a concealed knife, Terra fought for her life. She kicked her way free from his punches and stabs, and the knife fell to the ground. In that moment, Newell didn’t hesitate. She grabbed the knife and stabbed John in the face until he was incapacitated. He died in the hospital four days later. On the podcast today, Terra shares her story and talks about the steps and tools a person can take if they find themselves in a toxic relationship and how to recover from past trauma.----Links:Instagram: @terranewell​Website:​Podcast:​ - Time out with TerraEmail: terranewellcoaching@gmail.comFor information on how to join the Toxic Relationship/Trauma Recovery Retreat April 9-11, 2021, please DM Terra on Instagram or email her directly.Information about EMDR: to Help With Your Anxiety (an article by Terra Newell) --------- Find out more at:  My Website: Instagram: @ginakershaw Facebook: For my unfiltered thoughts and opinions: Twitter:  Try Kajabi for free:

When you have an idea – They say if you keep taking steps every day – even small steps, that your success is inevitable – It will happen. It is the moving forward and persistence that guarantees you will ultimately find the success you are looking for.But as entrepreneurs, we know that this timetable is not always as fast as we want it to be.I get it because I have been there too.How do we get slowed down? To put it bluntly, shit gets in the way.Busy work schedules, transporting kids everywhere, helping with homework – and even teaching for those of you that still have kids out of school and trying to learn at home, dinner to cook, bathtimes, appointments to keep, calls to make, laundry, errands, visits from neighbors, a moment of silence, cars to wash, showers to take… It’s a wonder you get anything done towards your dream at all. If you were able to post on social media today – you know that took prob 20-30 minutes and that should earn you at least one gold star for persistence.So, things don’t get done very fast, if at all.What if there was a way to jump-start things a bit?In this podcast, I share a process (new to me) that shook me up last week. I think it really helped me to gain more definiteness of my purpose – and this week has been completely different in terms of where I am at with my business, what I have been able to do, and my vision of my future.I haven’t worked harder than before – I just find that my work is more purposeful and less time-wasting, so more is accomplished.This tool is called the Dickens Process. Tony Robbins uses it in his Unleash the Power Within Seminars.  Have you heard about this? Have you tried it?Buckle up! This one is going to be a brain-changer! 💫---------Find out more at:My Website: ginakershaw.comInstagram: @ginakershawFacebook: my unfiltered thoughts and opinions:Twitter: @beachycruiserYouTube/Kajabi Help: Gina Kershaw ChannelTry Kajabi for free: Kajabi Free Trial
When you were a teenager, you probably created a collage of things that made you smile – bits and pieces of life - like photos from magazines, cool headlines, concert ticket stubs, a varsity letter, a picture of your ideal love interest, a piece of fabric, anything that had some significance to your life at the time.You probably glued it all together and then put your masterpiece up on the wall. And every time you looked at it – you had a thought and a feeling. It made you happy, it made you smile, it brought back memories, it motivated you, it inspired you.I stopped making these boards when my adulting got too serious. And then I didn’t do it again until recently when I learned about the power of these boards.  This podcast will show you why it's important that you have a vision board again!Links:FREE VISION BOARD WORKSHOP: website: https://www.ginakershaw.comEmail: influencerceo@gmail.comFacebook: me on Insta: @ginakershawTry Kajabi (The best all-in-one web platform for entrepreneurs) for free with this link:, some links I use are affiliate links that support this podcast – I appreciate when you use these links to check things out!)Turn Your Idea Into Income With Kajabi You can build your entire website, email plan, funnels, courses and memberships all under one roof!Business By Design with James Wedmore EVERYTHING you need to become a Digital CEO - Coming in 2021!Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Manifestation is the science of energetically bringing opportunity, people, things, abundance, prosperity into your life – just by believing and having faith that they are yours. If you use it to your advantage, you can accelerate the timetable of your business and other awesome things into your life. People sometimes think that they cannot manifest good things into their lives because they don’t know what manifestation is or how it works- or they may even tell themselves that they are not good at it. I’m going to debunk those theories right now.Links:Try Kajabi (The best all-in-one web platform for entrepreneurs) for free with this link: website: https://www.ginakershaw.comEmail: influencerceo@gmail.comFollow me on Insta: @ginakershaw(BTW, some links I use are affiliate links that support this podcast – I appreciate when you use these links to check things out!)
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with ADHD.  I never realized I had the condition because I was always in a line of work that required uber-focus and had constant high intensity (so it was like a constant dopamine hit). After I changed careers and started doing more desk-work, I noticed my inability to stay on task, focus or complete projects. The few times I had to finish something (like give a presentation at a conference), I was able to pull it together – but only because my ass was on the line and I had a non-negotiable deadline.In learning more about this condition in women, I found out that many women don’t figure out they have ADHD until later in life. They have some kind of tipping point where they realize something is wrong. If they don’t get medical help, some women just think they are not smart enough, not organized enough, not young enough (really the list can go on forever) …In this podcast, I talk about my own journey with ADHD and how after I was diagnosed, so many experiences in my life finally made sense. Links: ADHD in Women Symptom Checklist: Life Coach School Podcast – Episode #335: Attention with Shaun Roney:

In this week's podcast, I call out the 5 things you should never say to yourself. These 5 phrases are words and thoughts that can make you feel helpless and out of control. They also stop any forward progress you are making!When you recognize these thoughts, you can immediately turn them around into something positive and stop the cycle.I also want to encourage you to take a week and watch for the times that these phrases come to mind and what may be triggering them. Write them down and then write down a different, more positive statement. There is something about putting a new thought down in writing that cements it into your brain.The words you say to yourself matter. They affect the way you feel and ultimately affect the action you will take and results in your life! Links:Steven Pressfield “The War of Art” (this book is an easy read – all about resistance and how you can overcome it!)

This is about you and your intuition. We all have the gift of intuition, but we don’t use that sense as much as we use the others like your sense of smell or hearing – you get the idea. But just like your other senses, your intuition can be developed and strengthened so that you are more in tune with yourself, your ideas, your goals, and your commitments.Tarot is just a tool. It is a way of giving you clarity and focus and it can help you trigger and activate your intuition.It is also a way of getting the answers that you are seeking. In this podcast, I show you how you can use Tarot Cards to get answers, find comfort and encouragement, and perhaps start to see your situation from a new perspective.I love these cards and use them all the time! They help me to center and to get more clarity about life and who I am.I hope you get as much inspiration and hope from them as I have. Let me know!LINKS:Good Tarot: Castillo Life Coach School Podcast: Kershaw website: https://www.ginakershaw.comInstagram:  THE TAROT CARD I PULLED TODAY:  9 OF AIR (Thoughts)Meaning: Shifting negative self-talk to self-compassion, from fear to possibility. It is a call to faith. The affirmation:With a gentle voice I tell myself that I will be okay, that I am okay, and that any fear is merely false evidence appearing as real. I forgive myself because I know that I am a human trying the best I can and I need only call on Spirit to remember that I can and will do better as new possibilities begin to gather on my horizon.  
What is manifestation?It may sound crazy, but I had no clue what manifestation was until about 3 years ago. Like no clue whatsoever.  I’m not sure I ever even heard the word – or if I did, I had no idea what it meant. What I would give to go back and explain it all to my teenage self!And if you are listening to this podcast, you may not quite know what manifestation is all about, either. So, this is for you. (And, of course, for anyone else who wants to up their manifestation game). I’m not sure when I first heard about the law of attraction and manifesting, but I think the first time I heard it was in Jen Sincero’s book called, "You are a Badass." If you have not read that book, turn off this podcast right now and go find yourself a copy. It changed my life (and me) forever. And, it also changed the lives of my children and their life paths.  It really changed EVERYTHING.As a side note: I did not even know that the book was about manifesting a better life using the law of attraction – I just liked the title.  F – yeah. I am a badass.  I’m buying this book. Hahaha.But, all joking aside, manifesting is not just about money.Not at all.It is about attracting situations, careers, people, and, of course, prosperity into your life simply by knowing that God or the universe has your back and always wants to give you the best of everything.And, by the way, this isn’t about just believing and being all high vibe (or woo woo) all the time. It’s really about knowing who you are, and that you are worthy and loved, and that a higher power is constantly helping you, trying to give you what you want, and even rigging everything in your favor.  Jen Sincero said, “This is about believing, even when things seem to be at their most uncertain or absolute crappiest, that there is a bright shiny flipside within your reach. This is about believing that we live in a loving, kind and abundant universe instead of one that’s petty, mean, and likes other people more than you.  This is about your faith being greater than your fear.”Start today. What do you have to lose?  If you are not sure how to do it, listen to the bonus meditation on this podcast, and then make your own list. Say it every day, and believe that what you have asked for is not only possible, but already on its way to you.I have no hesitation in saying that your mind will be blown.Jen's Book "You Are a Badass."

Changing things up a bit this week. Sometimes it is hard for new entrepreneurs to create their own affirmations and then commit to saying them daily.  In this bonus episode I have recorded a daily affirmation meditation you can use.The best way to experience the meditation is to find a quiet place, sit comfortably and close your eyes. It's not required to close your eyes, so you can do the meditation while driving.Starting every day with positive affirmations and a simple meditation will help get your day off to a great start.The meditation is less than 10 minutes so you can definitely find time to do it.If you would like a written copy of it - just reach out to me at and I will send you one. xo Gina

We’ve been wondering how they’ve been coping. Especially our high school seniors. The last three and a half years of their lives have led up to this defining moment. But for high school seniors, these moments have been canceled, and they can never return. The press has been weirdly silent on the issue.  Are teenagers reluctant to talk? Or are we just moving past their feelings to discuss matter of factly, “what needs to be done.”Georgia Glowaki is a senior at Mater Dei High School – a prestigious private high school in Orange County, California.  She was a member of the Varsity Lacrosse team, getting ready to enjoy her last season with the team as an Adrenaline 2020 All American Athlete, and was eagerly anticipating all of the exciting days ahead as the Spring Season of her senior year began.Even though her senior year has changed in a way that she could never have anticipated, she surprisingly stays positive through it all.  I had a chance to interview Georgia about everything she and her classmates are going through right now. She had a lot of great things to say! Although she is young, she displays wisdom beyond her years. I hope you will listen in to this impressive young lady!Learn more at www.ginakershaw.comAnd here is a link to the article:How High School Students in Orange County, California are Really Coping. 
As of today, most of us have had at least one week under a stay-at-home order.  To say this has been challenging for most people is an understatement.The stress and anxiety surrounding our ability to work and pay our bills is something we did not expect. Then, add children (and teens) into the mix and, damn. Having to monitor, teach, entertain, feed, and all the other things have left us feeling very ill-equipped to handle the pressure.I’ve noticed this stay-at-home order and the uncertainty about the virus has brought out the best and worst in people. I have witnessed kindness and also rage.  And I know that choosing one of these over the other is completely our choice.Especially with the people we are around every day (like our family).We are so used to having the people we love have jobs, school, or other things that take them away from the house and use their time. I know it has been hard to have EVERYONE home 24/7 (with no real end in sight).So today I want to give you a tool to use – not only now, but also in the future when you are having a difficult time liking or being around another person.In this podcast, I give you a 4-Step Exercise to improve ANY relationship.  It works!!Some other links:The Relationship Guide (worksheets to help you with this exercise - and more!)ginakershaw.comcoachingwitherin.comxo Gina
You have an idea. You think it might be good - and possibly life-changing.You haven’t really told anyone about it, but you can’t stop thinking about it.The question is … how to get started.You don’t know.  You feel a bit confused and overwhelmed.In this podcast, I talk with Erin Titensor, the founder of Simple and Blush (and also my daughter).She was in the same place as you once.But in the past two years, she has built a six-figure e-commerce business, has become a certified life coach through The Life Coach School, and has started her own successful coaching practice as “The Fear Coach.”  She is the bomb, you guys.She will give you some gems to help you get unstuck and on your way to living a life of your dreams.She does it by helping you to get past the roadblock of “I don’t know how to get started” with a few helpful ideas.Here’s a little excerpt:“You already have everything you need right now to get started. Own that power, because you are the woman that you are supposed to be right now.Right now, exactly as you are, you’re where you’re supposed to be. So now is the fun part in deciding what you want to do. Let me show you how to get started.”Thanks for listening!Ginawww.simpleandblush.comCoaching With ErinInstagram: @simpleandblushInstagram: @coachingwitherin
I have talked with a lot of women that seem to be searching for their purpose in life.  They search for it in school, in work, in careers, at church, and in family, but for many of these women, they don’t think their purpose has ever revealed itself in the way that they think it should.  They look around and everyone else seems to have figured it all out. So they worry that they’re not enough. And they wonder when (or if) their specific purpose will finally be presented to them.  In the meantime, they believe that if they do not discover their purpose, they won't be able to find that perfect career or mate, build that orphanage, cure cancer, or ever define their life with some benevolent purpose they were always meant to fulfill.You may have had some of the same thoughts.  You may have thought that when you found that “one thing” everything would finally make sense, your life would fall neatly into place, and you would be happy.In this podcast, I debunk those expectations and show you the real secret to finding your purpose.Thanks for listening!Gina  
Have you ever had a day where you kept going and going? You filled your day doing household things like laundry and dishes, taking the dog for a walk, putting away the toys (again), making dinner, vacuuming, folding more clothes, giving baths, and then playing a mindless video game on your phone (to decompress, obviously). At the end of the day, you were so mad at yourself for not working on your goals or your business! But you rationalized and told yourself that there was no way you could have done that work because you were just. too. busy.The biggest excuse I hear from my subscribers is that you are not going after your dreams because you simply do not have enough time to do it.Yes, you do.This podcast shows you how to make one small change in your day that will have you feeling so much better!
