Perspectives on Being Human (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:51

As the final episode in the path to enlightenment series, I wanted to leave you with some parting thoughts about how I view life and what major perspectives I hold that have underpinned the last 10 episodes of this series. As we all search for a better experience of being human, I've found that there are a few simple concepts that I've picked up along my journey that I can easily take for granted that other people 'know' them too. The truth is, I had to LEARN these things along the way, so the chances are, so will other people. In this episode, I share 4 of my favorite books/concepts that have fundamentally shaped the way I think (plus 1 bonus idea that I discovered in the past year that has helped a lot). In this episode we cover: * The reason for honoring EVERYONE* The value of vulnerability and its role in expanding your options for growth* Why YOU are truly your greatest obstacle to growth* The MAIN question that you're always asking, even if you don't realize it* Assesment tests and how they can help you go further, faster Recommended Resources

3 Spiritual Communication Tools Every Human Should Master (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:50

Implicit within the idea of walking the path to enlightenment is the truth that we all need a guide. Namely, the Spirit of God. The problem with needing to connect with the Spirit of God as your guide is not that He doesn't speak to you or She only communicates to super-spiritual people. The problem with connecting with Spirit is that spiritual communication is incredibly subjective, and correspondingly, very difficult to pass on from one person to the next. Every one of us has our own natural bents/skills when it comes to spiritual communication, but very few of us have taken the time or had the privilege to be shown how to master these bents/skills or how to 'turn on' new ones. In this episode, I attempt to share 3 of my favorite spiritual communication tools and help you gain a larger understanding of how spiritual communication works. The truth is, Spirit is ALWAYS speaking to those who know HOW to listen. In this episode we cover: * How to turn on a particular form of Spiritual Communication* Tips and tricks about dream interpretation* How synchronicities work and how to customize them to fit you* The difference between signs and omens and how to use them Recommended Resources

An Intro to Meditation (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:49

We've all been told by spiritual gurus and doctors alike that mediation is good for you. We all know that it's something we 'should probably do', but for some reason, most of us never really make it a priority enough to even try. But if we're honest with ourselves, we feel an almost primal pull to some level of desire for mediation... if only we could find a way to naturally add it to our daily lives. I believe mediation is way more simple than most people have been led to believe. We all do it, all the time. There is only one missing ingredient for most of us. In this episode we cover: * The missing ingredient to meditation (intention)* Different types of meditation and why to use them* Tips and tricks for improving your mediative practice* Why it is important to find what works for YOU

The Law of Attraction (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:48

Although we've already done an episode on The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the Law of Attraction, I felt like it was appropriate to spend a full episode attempting to unpack the basics of the Law of Attraction as a tool for creating the life you want on your way to enlightenment. This universal law is something that is ALWAYS at work in your life, whether you know it or not. It works at all times, for all people, in all things. Good things. Bad things. Trivial things. Important things. The Law of Attraction can be your greatest ally for change and creating the life you desire, or it can be the cause never-ending malaise of normalcy and 'stuckness' that you can't seem to shake. Given the role that the Law of Attraction plays in our lives, I tend to think the understanding how it works and learning how to work WITH it is a goal worth having. This episode is simply an intro to the concept, but it is loaded with nuggets and insights that can only come from years of working with it intentionally. In this episode we cover: * What the Law of Attraction is* The difference between "trying" and "doing"* How to use the Law of Attraction * Ask - be specific* Believe - do not waver * Receive - watch for natural gratitude to come from within* What being "Anti-fragile" has to do with creating the life you desire Recommended Resources https://youtu.be/f3isjlvccc0

The Power of Decision w/Grant Porteous (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:47

Now that we've covered the different paths to enlightenment for different personality types, it's time to start sharing some of my favorite tools/concepts that I've found useful for my own journey. In this episode, Grant Porteous and I discuss a book by Raymond Charles Barker, The Power of Decision and what role your decisions make in your journey. Truth be told... This may be my favorite episode of the NAC Podcast yet. I always love talking with Grant and I'm very excited for the NAC audience to hear more from him and his unique insights into life. If you want to connect with Grant directly, check out his website at GrantPorteous.com, and be sure to tell him that you heard him on the NAC Podcast. In this episode we cover: * How every decision is essentially a belief* How decisions flow 'down stream' to their ultimate end * Some trouble shooting tips on how to change limiting beliefs and make different decisions* Tons of small insights into the internal mechanism of the creative process in the individual Recommended Resource

DISC Assessment Wrap Up (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:46

After doing 4 individual episodes on the DISC Personality Assessment methodology, what does a Conscientious (C) podcast host do ... How about 1 more episode just for the fun of it?!?! As the title suggests, in this episode we wrap up the discussion about the different paths to enlightenment for different personality types by diving into some tips and tricks, if you will. Namely, most of us are a mix of personality types and depending on how that mix plays out in your life, you will likely deal with things quite differently than other people who may have your same primary personality flavor. In this episode we cover: * Insights on how your secondary personality type will influence your primary* The definition of 'work' for different personalities* Tips on how to build around your strengths and weaknesses * How understanding the quadrants of the DISC diagram (below) can help you easily see insights into your actions and the actions of others Recommended Resources Recommended DISC Test...

The Informed Path for Conscientious Personalities (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:45

If you got excited when you first found out that we were going to be doing a 12 episode series on The Path to Enlightenment, there's a really good chance that was the 'C' part of you. If you've been purchasing every one of the different books that have been recommended throughout this series, I want to say, welcome to the 'C' side of life my friend, I'm glad there's another well informed New Age Christian out there in the world... Some might say... too informed... but still, I'm glad to have the company (I am a 'C' myself). As a continuation of our 4 episodes focusing on the 4 personality types within the DISC personality profile system, this episode focuses on the 'C' of the DISC acronym, the Conscientious individuals amongst us. Conscientious personality types are data hounds that are so glad the internet was invented. Got a random question you don't know the answer to, Google it... Oh wait... your 'C' friend already did. Why? Because the most important thing in the world is havin...

The Peaceful Path for Steadfast Personalities (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:44

You know those people in your life who you just love hanging around because they are so easy going and a delightful to talk to, the people in your network of friends that almost nobody has anything bad to say about... Yeah... They are almost definately an 'S'. As a continuation of our 4 episodes focusing on the 4 personality types within the DISC personality profile system, this episode focuses on the 'S' of the DISC acronym, the Steadfast(s). Steadfast personalities are the salt of the earth, loyal friends who are always there for you. If you have an emergency at 3AM in the morning, they are the friends that you call first. They are the 'glue' that holds our society together, and they would rather talk about your life than theirs... but we're gonna talk about them anyway. In this episode we cover: * What a Steadfast (S) is* The pros and cons of being an 'S'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for 'S's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of The Power o...

The Fun Path for Influencer Personalities (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:43

If the idea of pursuing enlightenment has ever sounded boaring to you, you're probably an Influencer personality (an 'I') and this podcast episode is for YOU. As a continuation of our 4 episodes focusing on the 4 personality types within the DISC personality profile system, this episode focuses on the 'I' of the DISC acronym, the Influencers. Influencers are largely driven by fun and the desire to change their environment through having an impact on others around them. Less focused on tasks, Influencers want... you guessed it... INFLUENCE. In this episode we cover: * What an Influencer (I) is* The pros and cons of being an 'I'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for 'I's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of The 4 Agreements as a tool for freedom * What traditional 'enlightenment' concepts probably won't work for an 'I' Recommended Resources Recommended DISC Tests Your Life's Path - DiSC Classic 2.0 Test - $64.50 DiSC Personality Testing - Full DiSC A...

The Powerful Path for Dominant Personalities (The Path to Enlightenment) – NAC:42

In the first episode of this series we discussed what enlightenment is and why there are multiple paths that we can take to get there. In this episode, we continue the discussion by diving deeper into the enlightenment journey through the lens of the DISC Personality Profile. In the DISC Personality Profile, the "D" stands for 'Dominant'. Dominant personalities, like all personalities, have specific traits that make them tick. They like to move fast, take charge, know their boundaries, and change their environment. There is hardly a major world leader in history that didn't have a significant amount of 'D' in their makeup. In this episode we cover: * What a Dominant (D) is* The pros and cons of being a 'D'* The best tools (according to Austin Fletcher) for D's to use in their journey to find enlightenment* The role of Radical Honesty as a tool for freedom * What traditional 'enlightenment' concepts probably won't work for a 'D' Recommended Resources: Recommended DISC Tests Your Life...
