What lights us all up? Our authentic story. The conversations. The truths. The untruths. What makes us who we are at our core?

At some point in each of our lives, we all experience something - some pivotal moment, where all of our yeses have become a no, and we struggle to push through. To find meaning. The Light Inside. Each of us has a story — the tale of our struggles. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/support

Head Start To Riches Education is Empowerment. As a recent opportunity to partner with Head Start 2 Riches Team- an educational company that offers a unique wealth building course for children. Their mission is to bring awareness and insight to children, instilling within them the knowledge to reach for their dreams and achieve. We shared this inspiring message answering what head start we are giving at a young age which allowed us to reach for our awareness of success- empowering the leaders of tomorrow.  Question: What type of head start was given to you? You can hear how this advantage became our most meaningful lesson on our journey of discovery in life. .This mission and purpose is the vision we live every day here at The Light Inside. Be sure to support the mission at Head Start To Riches- empowering the leaders of tomorrow with insight and purpose to reach for their dreams. Read the transcript here: The greatest thought-seed ever planted was the notion of discovery. I am grateful this example was set by my mother throughout our young lives. Seek knowledge- Knowledge is empowering.  When we reach for understanding and meaning- it becomes purpose. Those who know- do. Awareness is freeing. It moves us into alignment with others and the world around us. It’s an equalizing force of nature that brings us together. When we connect we create. Marie Curie said “Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.” To understand we must first search for meaning. Reach for knowledge. Engage context. Form a thought. Then feel with our hearts. You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individual. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity- our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful. When we each become responsible for our own betterment, the world will simply become better. We have to ask- how can I simply be of service to myself and others, then be responsible for shaping our own destinies. The greatest advantage one can be lies in being an advantage to others. Seeking knowledge, meaning and understanding empowers that. Ultimately realize that the greatest riches we gain in life are in enriching others. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/support
The average human being spends roughly 60,00 thoughts a day shaping and forming their world. Often, very sadly- the large majority of those thoughts are negatively aligned and statistically - many of them are repetitive. The Buddha said- What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract What you imagine, you create. Our thoughts and and our actions contain the energy of the universe. How we wear that energy determines every step of our course. Every path we follow in this life and into the worlds we come to experience and know….for ourselves and others. Our guest today, Kerrian Fournier, shares this  talk about the Universal power of energy, and how energy influences the way we act because it forms the “lens” through which we perceive the world. The choice in how we see that world so often becomes the reality we live and the experience we create. Join us today as we learn how to play with your perception of that world view and shift how your energy signs within it- On this very insightful and thought-provoking episode of The Light Inside.

Every Single Moment is an Opportunity to Decide Who You Want to Be and Then Do Something About It-The choices we make guide the actions which create our world. Our spaces of being...

It's Two Minute Tuesday on The Light Inside. Every Tuesday, we share our greatest lessons and insights. Short thoughts of discovery that help us all change, evolve and become our best version of ourselves. This Tuesday, we talk about change- how it is the one constant in life. Why making friends with change leads us towards our ultimate discoveries and adds deeper meaning and purpose in our lives. As entrepreneurs and leaders, Change is one of our greatest challenges. What Have I learned? Embrace it! Heraclitus said- “The only constant in life is change” We all face changes every day – whether it’s a simple change in the weather, our schedule or expected change of seasons. Change affects us all. And we each deal with change differently. The only constant in life, the only thing we can be sure will happen- is change. Find fulfillment in the being, becoming and the evolution. Embrace and enjoy the process. Be comfortable in your skin. Change is where we find alignment-in the discovery, because in the discovery lies true balance and FLOW. Life IS change. There is no comfort in the knowing, Only the “unknowing”. And by understanding that change is the only constant in life its more easy to recognize what Heraclitus is saying. The way up and the way down are one and the same. Living and dead, waking and sleeping, young and old- All are the same. These things are the 'same' in that they are all subject to change. They arise from one change to vanish into another. All things, constantly-are changing. And, in that regard, they are the same- All things “come into being” through opposition. Come into being. I mean...WOW! How awesome IS that? It’s a process - Discovery. The being is not the destination and arriving is not the result. The process IS the result. Simply being Change. Its easy to observe the contenting of forces in nature. And yet as human beings, we resist the natural movement of life. Instead we cling to what is known- what we consider safe. "In opposition there is agreement- between unlikes, the fairest harmony." It is in changing that we find purpose. Meaning. Focus. And Direction. In change we discover who and what we are each meant to be. All that we will become. The greatest lesson I have learned- Embrace the change. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/support
