Ownership as Path to Meaning and Peace: Live Podcast with Julie and Willow

One of the most effective paths to peace and meaning is honesty. An active inquiry to reveal the truth of who we are. As an HSP this can sometimes feel like a lonely path if we feel misunderstood, causing us to want to hide and protect who we really are. Each of us are born with an authentic heart, a unique way of seeing the world, a wish to bring change and to do good. Yet when we are living from a place of dishonesty about who we really are, the conflict we feel inside becomes the conflict we experience outside. Join us this week as we explore the intention of ownership and how it can lead to a profound sense of knowing, peace and meaning. Discussions in this episode: What it means to begin a path of ownership from a place of uncertainty Learning to trust and anchor our awareness in the heart Embracing the reality of feeling ‘different’ from a place of ownership Why community and kindred souls are so important for this process Ownership as the ultimate tool for meaning and purpose alignment Why ownership is critical to effective empathic leadership of self and others --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjelland/message

Creating Healthy Friendships & Relationships Part 2 with Q/A

Are you a fixer and an over-giver in your relationships? It can be common for HSPs to feel like they give more than they receive. We will discuss how to create healthy friendships and relationships. We'll talk about how vulnerability leads to connection and how to feel safe to be yourself so you can connect deeply. We'll discuss healthy boundary setting that can give you the healthiest type of relationships. Some of what we discussed in this episode: Importance of being a kind and caring friend to yourself We attract love and caring from others at the level we love and care for ourselves How setting boundaries improves relationships How to communicate our needs HSPs have more information and can read subtle cues that others might miss Non-HSPs might not be as courteous and conscientious because they don't have the same level of awareness and "knowing" not because they necessarily are trying to hurt us. We might be misinterpreting this so it's important to understand Shifting our mindset pay attention to our inner child's needs Being open and direct about our need for extra downtime feels empowering and gives them information And more! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjelland/message

Meditation for Intense Feelings

As highly sensitive people sometimes life can be very challenging when we have intensely difficult feelings. I hope this meditation supports you through hard moments. From a listener... "I listened to this yesterday and it was very helpful in normalizing my experience. I am now experimenting with starting my one hour of down time after work with one of your guided meditations. The length of the meditations is good in that I have plenty of time left in the hour to rest, reflect, watch TV, or whatever I need on any particular day. My husband has shared that I emerge from the hour in a much better emotional space than I'm usually in right after work, and I think the guided meditations are an important part of that." "Such a beautiful meditation. I listened to it this morning and it’s very soothing-exactly what my system needed to come back into center and alignment. Thank you ️" --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjelland/message

Forest Bathing Meditation

Enjoy time in the forest connecting to nature and relaxing. From Listeners... “I felt like I was there walking through the forest with you! I could almost smell the pine needles and hear them crunching under my feet, see the sunlight coming through the trees... it was wonderful.” "I live in a city and crave access to nature, and when I listened to the forest meditation I could feel the crunch beneath my feet and see the sunlight coming through the tops of the trees." "I did the Forest Bathing meditation today and it was wonderfully relaxing. Thank you, Julie!" "I just made the connection in the Forest Bathing meditation, which was beautifully relaxing, Julie, thank you so much—-one of the first things I bought myself when I got a yard, was a hammock. The meditation made me realize how a hammock cradles and supports and soothes the occupant. . Made me wonder how dreamy it would be/feel to have a weighted blanket on top." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjellan...
