Normally I do a FaceBook LIVE every week and share it in the newsletter for those of you who don’t use FaceBook, but this week things didn’t exactly go as planned! My husband Danny (aka my camera man and the voice who reads the questions, at least when we are traveling) came down with the flu a couple of days ago. We are currently in Hong Kong, and we chose to transit here, our old stomping ground, on our way back to Los Angeles, after seeing my mom in India. Danny very rarely gets sick, so this was unusual for him, but he had been burning the candle at both ends. He has been spending our few days in Hong Kong rushing around, stressed, getting all the necessary stamps in his passport for all the places we are going to visit for the cruise in March and the trip to Europe a few months later.
The good news is that he got all the visas he required, and we were supposed to fly out to Los Angeles tonight. However, because he ended up getting the flu, we’ve postponed our departure from Hong Kong for a couple of days, as it’s no fun being on a plane when you’re sick. This evening, I made him a big bowl of chicken soup, and when I gave it to him, he sat up in the bed and said “I’m sorry I’m so broken today!”
Because it’s so rare for him to get sick, Danny tends to beat himself up when it happens. He thinks he’s done something wrong, and that’s why he’s sick. So I had to remind him that he’s not broken; he’s perfect and his body just needed a break from all the traveling and rushing around, so it was letting him know. So many of us think that we are broken, or that there’s something wrong with us, when things don’t go the way we want or expect.
“You are perfect the way you are. There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re not broken. You are everything you are trying to attain. Don’t take life seriously. Have fun. Laugh at yourself. Dance to Dancing Queen, and eat chocolate!”
~Quote from Inspire Nation interview
After Danny went to bed, I started working on this newsletter, and thought I’d take this opportunity to share one of my favorite video interviews with you.
I truly loved this interview with Michael Sandler of Inspire Nation, because I felt we had such a deep and beautiful conversation! I’d like to share it with you, and if you happen to have seen it before, this might be a great time to watch it again. (I notice I always receive different insights or “a-ha moments” when I listen to, or read something more than once.)
Mike asked GREAT questions during our really fun conversation, and I did a short guided meditation at the end.
Some of the topics we discussed include:
- How to truly love yourself
- My experience of being bullied as a child
- Our fear of being judged
- How parents can help children develop true empathy
- How to align with your own Divine light
- Why being spiritual does not equal having no ego
- Mutual agreements for a healthy thriving relationship
The short meditation at the end is designed to get you re-focused on why you came to this earth, and on your heart’s truest desires for living this life of yours. I truly hope it helps open up more love for you.
The entire interview is long, but I hope you take the time to watch, because we get into a lot of details, and I believe the questions he asked, and what we discussed, will help many.
The video is below and if you feel the messages within it will help others, please share it.
By the time I connect with you next week, we’ll be back in Los Angeles, and I’m sure Danny will be back to his usual self again!
