Are you truly practicing true self-love or just checking boxes off of your “to-do” list to fulfill your self-care tasks for the day? Today I am chatting with Paul Fishman, a self-love coach who got into the business after turning his own pain into his life’s purpose. Paul shares about how dealing with abusive relationships and coming out about his sexuality helped him to shed the emotional weight he had been hanging onto. He also talks about how he got into coaching self-love and why many people have a fear of being successful. He gives us insight into how focusing on how you want to feel will help you to stop suffering and why external validation is the villain of self-love. 

 

About Paul Fishman:

Paul Fishman, a lauded Self Love Coach and Advocate, didn't always radiate in his authenticity. At rock bottom Paul was 75 pounds overweight, closeted, and the epitome of a people pleaser. When he stepped into his light, came out and honored his truth Paul lost the weight and manifested the life of his dreams.

 

Inside this episode, Paul shares:

 

  • Trying to be the person that other people want us to be leads to suffering
  • How coming out helped Paul shed emotional weight
  • The fear of being successful
  • Getting caught up in the all or nothing mentality
  • Becoming devoted to your individuality 
  • The difference between self-love and self-care
  • Changing your experience of life by changing your intention
  • Why external validation is the villain of self-love

In this solo jam we are going to be talking about the addiction to personal development.  Some of you out there want to consume all the things: the podcasts, the books, the mentors and coaching.  This was me! I was so addicted to the pursuit of personal development that I was actually missing the point.  In this episode I’m going to go into how we identify that and how we start to untangle it so that we can do the work that matters.  



Inside this episode, I share:

  • The power of intention and being committed to it
  • How constant consumption leads to scattered focus
  • That consumption without integration creates frustration
  • Getting to know yourself is a more productive path than consumption
  • Important work can be accomplished by being, not doing
  • The role of breathwork in embracing the concept of presence
  • We can improve our lives by making every decision from our most authentic selves
  • How to set yourself up for daily “wins”, which will increase happiness
  • The benefits of recognizing progress in your journey

I am so excited to bring you this Solo Jam from Bali today.

I am so excited to bring you this episode! I had the privilege to interview David Elliot in his beautiful home. He is one of the pioneers in the breathwork movement. As you know, breakwork excites me so much in conjunction with the food and body conversation. Breathwork is just a beautiful catalyst for us to go deeper with the food and body conversation. I loved this conversation with David about his breathwork, the spiritual and physical reason behind it. It was a beautiful conversation and I’m so excited to bring it into the world and share it with you!

Inside this episode, David shares:

  • Why serving and helping others brings joy
  • The spark that caused David to create a movement surrounding breathing meditation
  • What breathwork is, the science behind it, and what it accomplishes within the body
  • David’s desire to equip people to heal themselves rather than creating a dependency
  • The relationship between a person’s their hands and their heart during breathwork

I am recording this live from Bali and I really wanted to do this episode from here with a little bit less of the editing and a little bit more rawness. I feel raw. I feel really raw. I feel like I'm going through another unearthing in my life. Another unearthing of what does not belong which, always feels very scary you know? It's this whole idea of like, “I want to keep things as they are and I want a white-knuckle, and I want structure, and I want this, and I want that,” so that I can feel safe. I wanted to bring this message to this podcast today. This whole facade that our external world creates our internal safety.

In this episode, I share:

  • Deciding and choosing the emotions we want to feel.
  • What does safety feel like in your body?
  • Getting above the emotions that keep us stuck.
  • Inviting safety into our bodies on a daily basis.

Today on the show I have the amazing Meredith Rom. I loved connecting with her! You can just tell by her voice how grounded, soulful, and heart centered she is. I absolutely loved the way that she talked about beauty and uniqueness as it pertains to the self. I think that's often times something that we just miss the ball on so much as we don't acknowledge the beauty and the uniqueness of our individuality, our humanness, our souls, and our hearts. I often get my clients to look at nature and I say, “Look how beautiful that is!” and what we get to realize is beauty that exists externally also exists within ourselves. The only thing we have to ask ourselves is, “Are we willing to look at it? Are we willing to realize it?” Something else we talked about is what to do when your partner is not into personal development and growth but you are. We also talk about the art of asking for help, the art of receiving, really stepping into our Womanhood, really stepping into our femininity, and asking for what we need to help us navigate this human experience.

 

About Meredith Rom

Meredith Rom is a yoga teacher, author, coach and host of the Rising Women Leaders podcast. She helps women uncover and heal whatever is preventing them from claiming and embodying their unique brilliance to be a beacon of light for others to awaken in this world. After graduating from NYU she followed her intuition to Northern California where she now teaches yoga and mentors women to rise in courage, self-love and feminine leadership.

 

In this episode, Meredith shares:

  • Acknowledging our own beauty and uniqueness.
  • How comparison robs us of our true magic.
  • Taking ownership when we’re acting out of alignment and forgiving ourselves.
  • Asking for help and being open to receive it.
  • What to do when you’re committed to personal growth and your partner is not.
