"Welcome to on the verge. I am care bradley bringing you these many messages these little blasts of inspirations questions things that i am uncovering unpacking and letting go of in my own life. I hope that they can support you. I'm excited to bring you a new format shorter episodes more often where i pose a question. An inquiry something. I'm asking myself during this cross country trip that my husband brian and i are on. I felt the need to change things up to tweak things and really that is the question for the day. What do i need to tweak so before i get into that i want to tell you. I am super big on questions. I love asking questions all day long. Sometimes i get answers right away. Sometimes they come in words sometimes they come in images sometimes they just come in a bodily sensation and i believe that inquiry or question asking is a fantastic way to start to untangle an un block things that are stuck in us and we all have places and things that get stuck and a my big big journey is really to unblock unfold and unleash the potential that's in me and the potential. I know that is in everything and every one of us. So i hope that these morning questions will be helpful for you and i encourage you to listen to them lightly to not try to answer things right away but to carry these questions with you in your pocket throughout the day and to see what comes up to see what emerges today's question. Today's inquiry is what i've been carrying around for the last week and a half what needs tweaking. And it was specifically with this podcast. I knew i felt over the last couple of weeks something was primed for change. Something was ready to to shift. And i wasn't sure what it was and it actually took me a couple of weeks to to hear to hear the answer and i felt like i was starting to force things i felt like i was starting to to try too hard and i've become very sensitive to forcing i don't want to force anything anymore. It's uncomfortable and i'm not against being uncomfortable but it's it feels inauthentic to force and try to try too hard so what needs tweaking. I kept asking what needs tweaking. The podcasts and i realized oh my gosh okay. I need to shorten things up. They've gotten way too long. I need to allow these questions to emerge things. I'm asking myself. And i. I need to just change it up and tweak it and so that's my inquiry for the day to continue to ask myself what needs tweaking. What else needs tweaking. So sit with that for today. Sit with these morning inquiries these morning questions right down. The first thing that comes to mind or not. I'm not telling you how to how to work with your own inquiry but but hold it lightly and oftentimes. This is what i've been taught. Is that the question itself. Elicits the response. Sometimes the answer is immediate all of a sudden it's like oh my gosh yes. That's exactly what needs tweaking in my life either today or this month or this year. What needs tweaking. That's the morning inquiry. That is the morning question. I look forward to offering you my inquiries my questions. What i'm asking myself. What's emerging for me. And i hope that that could be of help to you. So i am coming to you today. From green bay wisconsin. Brian and i are making our way across the country. We spent a couple of days in the upper peninsula in michigan absolutely breathtaking place to hang out and we look forward to driving across wisconsin. We have a couple of stops with to see some friends and partners of ours in our business and as we drive across the country we are untangling.

"Good morning and welcome to sacred sunday. I am care bradley. And on sundays i bring you a practice. A guided practice to explore yourself. Your mind your habits and patterns and how you wanna move in the in a more conscious collaborative compassionate way and today. Today's practice is about bending attention. It's about becoming more familiar with where your attention goes and it really is in many respects the first step in mindfulness practice but while i say it's the first step it's something. I continue to practice years decades after my first mindfulness class so we are always going back to beginner's mind. We are always returning back to the beginning to learn a new when our mind does wear our mind goes. What is holding our attention before we get started into the practice. I want to just define a couple of things for you. One is that attention is simply the act of noticing. It's a way of of taking regard noticing things people images thoughts feelings and when we work with attention we become more familiar with where our mind goes what holds our mind moment to moment when we explore this and get to know our mind in this way. It's really important to not place judgment on where our mind goes. We wanna be curious about what holds our mind moment to moment in practice so that we can become more aware of that and where our mind goes in our daily life so the simple practice is really about just sitting and becoming aware of the fluctuations of your attention. You can sit comfortably. You could even do this while walking and there are two ways to practice. Mindfulness at the beginning stages one is to focus. And concentrate on an object such as your breath or a mantra or a candle but holding your attention in one spot. And that's not what we're gonna do today. What we're gonna do today. Is more of an open awareness. Practice in other words who are not directing our mind in any specific direction or any object of thought or bodily sensation. But instead we're going to just allow our mind to wander as it will into notice where it wanders because this is going to give you insight into how your mind wanders during your daily life when we're speeding through life so wherever you are you can just begin simply by either sitting or walking.

"Welcome to on the verge. I am care bradley bringing you this first of hopefully many frisky. Fridays frisky fridays. What are these about. These warning messages are all going to have somewhat of a theme these days today on frisky friday. I really feel called to bring you in when you into my life. I have to tell you my friend that today and every day going forward from here. I am committed to changing my game to changing how i live. It doesn't mean that. What i've been doing has been bad or you know not not doing things. Well but the way. I'm stepping forward into this day. Especially with you especially on this. Podcast is to really shed the roles that i've carried in my life and to offer you me as raw and as real as i'm able to communicate why. Why am i doing this. why today. well my husband. Brian and i are officially house. Louis we decided about a year ago that we while it was actually happening more than a year ago but we have been moving toward this moment where we have no mortgage. We have no rent. We are truly without house and without location so we are what is known out there as location independent uae. The heck would we be doing this. Well we are on a quest a personal quest to understand what is most essential in life in our lives to really tune into what our hearts are longing for to. Really make sense of why we're here and so being location. Independent is just one part of this project. But it's big. It's a big project when you let go of stuff and you start to let go of your tether to places. It is so uncomfortable but it's also in that discomfort in the shakiness that we find ourselves. You don't have to do this. You don't but you can join me and learn what i am learning and experiencing so being location independent. It started A few years ago. When i was really interested in selling my business. Verge yoga verge. Yoga has been around for sixteen years now and it's the type of business that is very local it never sleeps and it's open all year except for one day and so it really third me to the philadelphia area. I needed to be there. We needed to be there. So selling the business at the end of two thousand and nineteen allowed me to release that role of business owner and of yoga teacher and over the over. The course of twenty twenty. I mean we've all changed so much. But i continued to shed roles. I continued to let go of my identity and my Kind of my my fixed around being thought of as something like speaker or flow expert. Or whatever even podcast. I mean i've let go of that as well and there's a huge plane. That's coming over me i. I'm coming to you from burlington vermont. We are on a like a ten day tour here of northern new england Today we're headed out to a ferry to cross lake champlain and to visit like placid a place. I've never been we've never been so we're just you know discovering discovering our country in the same time discovering ourselves. So why does this matter to you. Well i have to be honest that i am in process as best to my ability of putting down my teacher hat of putting down that role of teaching and coaching. And it's not easy because it's been a role that i have you know been wearing for most of my life and it's not to say i'm never gonna teach or coach or speak again but i'm really wanting to discover my authentic voice not my teacher voice not my coaching voice or my speaking voice. Because they're different. But my true voice. Because i feel like when i can offer the world my real deal cara voice. Well then i'll learn a lot more about myself and and hopefully it will resonate. It's not going to resonate with everybody. I know that so. What i'm doing is letting go practicing letting go in. This is how. I'm changing my game. And how i've moved in the world fifty six years fifty six years. So i'm offering this to you and asking you to call me out when i get on my soapbox when i start teaching again because i'm sure i will because it's a bitch will pattern. We all have patterns. We all have patterns and belief systems. And it's just what we do over and over again and sometimes most often these patterns become are blind spots. I have many blind spots and so my practice is in shedding as much as i can so that those blind spots become apparent to me and the ones that are unhelpful. I can work to change direction to leap to let go so changing the game for me. One is being location independent. Which kind of puts you into the state of emergence. You know not really having solid plans. We've got a couple of plans but most of it is really just space to kind of.

You may know this already have maybe if you've been following me or read my book on the verge or maybe come to my yoga, Studio Verge Yoga, you may know the story but. I think it's an important one to. To remind you of. And remind me of and that is that the verge averge is a boundary. It's an edge. And it's on the edge. That we change and grow. Being out there on the verge now unfortunately. The expression on the vert. has is used so often in the negative on the verge of a nervous breakdown if you remember that movie. Women on the verge our. Country is on the verge of collapse right but I see it as different. I see it as being. On the edge of change where growth. And flourishing happens. So years ago many many years. My husband went down to the Ecuador to the Amazon and he spent a few weeks with an indigenous tribe. And he? When it came back he told me the story how they would be. Going down these tributaries in. in a canoe CA dugout tree bark right tree trunk. And they would stop. At certain places along the way and they've been pause there. And maybe have a snack or water, but it was at these places where the indigenous. People that he was with would pause to almost pray. And these places these edges of land where to trip tributaries came together is called a verge. and. It's they are on the verge. Research shows animal life and wildlife? Thrive. There on the edge on the boundary where ecosystems come together. There is flourishing. There is thriving. And when I heard that term many many years ago. I thought Oh, my Gosh, I wanNA live on verge. I WANNA live there. I want to know what it feels like to be on the edge of change. To. Be Right there at the precipice of growth in challenge. And so I. named. My Yoga Center in two thousand and four Verge Yoga. For that reason to create a space where people can flourish and thrive. Just. Like that place there on the Amazon. So so much of what I do. And why do it is to? Live right there on the edge. These morning messages for me or Averge 'cause I just go for it. Right. I don't know what's coming out of my mouth I have an idea direction and then then I just write it. Because I trust that right there on the edge. is where I'm going. I may fumble, but it's where growth is happening. So where are the verges in your life? Where do you live on the verge? How do you live on the verge? We can do it mentally. A mental practice, we can do it emotionally immolation ship. Right. Our relationships can be verges where we are called to step up to open up to accept to allow. Or to challenge and physically, of course, we can challenge ourselves physically right there on the verge. Not, blasting ourselves out of the water but just enough so that we start to feel the tremble we start to feel that aliveness and it's they're on the verge my friend where we feel most alive. And this is what I based my whole book on its honestly what I've based my whole professional life on and it's where I live personally I wanna live on the verge and I wanna live on the verge with others. It's it's really part of the makeup of my my new mental wellness business. Where we partners? Are Living Together. In In the space where we are growing tremendously. Where we are thriving and listen if you WANNA work with me. Just reach out that's all you have to do. DM or email and Let's talk about how we live on the verge together.

Your Love Object

"Good morning and welcome back to morning messages. Thanks so much for joining me. I Am Care Bradley bringing you these really quick hits. These a little snippets from pockets of my mind my heart little things I've learned along the way and things I've read and and just a conversation about. About a winning, this is really about awakening and one of the things I've learned the most over these long decades of my life is that. Self love. Loving kindness. Being kind to yourself is the nectar is really the It's the medicine. That I needed. To really push forward into my personal transformation, but it also works for everybody else. It's not something I made up for sure something I have learned along the way as I continue to dive deep into my own mind body. And Soul. And today I wanNA bring you a another angle at this kindness path on this kindness path and that is. Your love object. Oh Boy, this is a fun one. I have been talking the last couple of days about being this hard ass Brooklyn girl. Hard as only grow between two brothers heart s having to be hard as entrepreneur unfortunately in running businesses especially, my yoga studio you would think a yoga studio of all things. You know you can just be all light in open and airy but no way. Having rent pay payroll to pay classes to run. I, I had a lockdown I didn't want to but I did and it really. it built up a Lotta thick. Skin. which was not good. Really not good in the end So it took me years to soften. This one in particular. This little trick I'm GonNa teach you today was a Biggie in my life and I learned this from my Meditation Teachers Scott Nancy McBride From Clear Lake Meditation. You can google them, they are amazing and they do a ton online. Okay this one is about having a love object. Help when Scott I taught it to me I was I rolled my eyes. I was like, no freak away. Can't go there Scott. Sorry. I am not that sappy. So the love object is. Someone or something in. Your. Life. That is one a pet. To. A child or baby but I'm talking childlike toddler child. Right we? WanNa think about one of the cutest things in our lives and it could be past or present. A cutie. Cutie, that makes our voice change we speak to it. Right for me, I use my dog joey. Rest his little heart. Shall we when I spoke to Joey I talk differently, my voice raised my voice got kinda sweet and syrupy. I was so kind and gentle to Joe Right. I'm even changing my voice as I speak to about him. Joe Come over here. Silly boy what do you want from me? Come on silly. And I would talk to Joey with this light syrupy voice. with, this kindness and gentleness. And I also talked to my babies that way before they could speak back to me. This is what our love object is when we can think about how we spoke and how we speak to our love objects and I love the name because it's so damn sappy. And we turn that towards ourself. Oh. Okay now here's the trick for me anyway. Give. Yourself a nickname or use the nickname you had when you were a child for me it was Mimi. So. Shedding, the dark the dark armor. An offering myself more self love. Loving kindness. With by by by talking to myself as if I am a love object which I am. Mimi come on Mimi. So, when I do something stupid and I thought my phone come on Mimi wake up hit tension Mimi. Or? Say. Something I don't mean Oh. Gosh me. It's okay. Next time be more attentive and pause before you talk. Right when I when I eat something I, know I shouldn't have eaten or eight too much your drink too much or whatever too much or do this or didn't work out or Blah Blah Blah la La la. It's que me me. Let's just give it a try better try next time. So it goes along with their their sweetheart with hand on heart you can put them all together and boom. You're GONNA have a huge loving kindness practice. Or just try one of these at a time. Go slow.

"Welcome to on the verge. I'm your host Care Bradley bringing you our final episode of the Entrepreneur Series. Today I bring you my greatest accomplishment Verge Yoga, the business I founded over fifteen years ago and recently sold just before the pandemic I bring you the stories of the highs, and the lows of being a lonely leader in a business of the excitement and the real down to Earth moments when I find myself on my knees. This journey of being an entrepreneur has been. Colored with the full spectrum of emotions and I hope that this series has given you some insight, some back stage insight as to what an entrepreneur goes through what it takes to really dig in and get your ideas into action. And really what is the reality of the many many failures and the few successes that we can enjoy as we lean in to our passion and our purpose. Thanks so much for joining.

"Hello and welcome to on the verge with Me Care Bradley. I'm excited to bring you episode. Two of the Special Series called Entrepreneur. Were I'll be sharing stories of the highs and lows the ups and downs and the lessons learned along the way this week. I talk almost exclusively about the first real business. I found it at twenty five years old called plead skate where it was a tough story to tell. We often only hear about the successes of others and I really wanted to lay out the path of why I started blade and where I went wrong. I haven't told the full story in at least a decade and I was surprised how emotional I got at the end. I guess the visceral feelings of failure is always just under the surface and never really goes away enjoy. I got the job right at the Investment Bank and I was starting to get itchy I started my MBA at Nyu. They were paying for it. I mean it was clutch clutch position. It was just not for me. I couldn't do the suit so I left. I left to go back to skating and There's probably one of the stupidest things I've ever done to be honest with you. It was stupid because I was very impatient and I didn't consult my parents. I didn't consult a mentor. I didn't have a mentor. This is what I've always told you. Find a mentor.

I've sold my business. It is such a relief to be able to talk about it with people but with that and of course. I've known this for some time that this was going to happen so I've been sitting with something for the last few months that he'd like to share with you and that is my very very intentional practice to not just add back in more doing into my life. Now that I've sold my business now. Of course I'm still need to work and I'm still going to be working but instead of living at the same pace that I've been living at. Let's say for the last fifteen years. I want to be really intentional about how I continue to work in years in the years ahead so. I've been contemplating this whole idea of pushing to product or pushing to produce. Now if you're like me Taipei Dewar dewar right. Always has the long list of stuff to do always looking to do more be more achieve more. It takes an incredible amount of awareness to notice habitual patterns. And I am a habitual doer. You may feel the same way habitually creating more stuff to do and something that I've noticed about myself in. The last six months is how quickly? I will push things to product now. Those are the words I use for me. They may not land for you but let me give you an example and then you may find something that that lands in your own life for instance. Oftentimes I'll have in an idea for a podcast. Let's say or for a product for a program. I'll have an idea for a workshop. Let's just put. It may keep it real easy. I may have an idea for workshop. Let's say in my morning meditation or as preparing for my day and by five o'clock that new workshop has been created. I've created the copy of created a flier. I've posted it on social media and it's out there in the world like whoa right. There's no time for simmering. I just have an idea and a push it to product very quickly and I've been doing this for a long time and I'm being honest with you. It's not great I think yes. I've got some good ideas. Yes I've put out some good programs but I've been so anxious to get things moving that I haven't allowed or always allowed things to simmer to mature to develop and so I've noticed this myself over the last six months and I really been intentional to not push the product. And that's those are my words for myself so clearing the space and allowing myself to let things fester let things start to sprout in a way that could bring forth a more robust program or product because we see so much out there on social media. We see so many people doing so much if you're like me. I have the sense of urgency. Like Oh my God I gotta get stuff out there now. A few months ago I mentioned in one of the shows that I was pulling together and online course and I did right. I pull together. A course that was called cultivating high impact self-care and I was ready to go. I signed up for an online program. I started paying for it. You know a platform that you can do a course on and then I realized what the Heck Are you doing Keira? Could you relax your in the middle of selling a business? You've got a Lotta things going on right. Now chill out. I may have used some expletives there in talking to myself but chill out can you allow this to simmer a little bit so that when you put the product out there it actually has a little more maturity about it instead of instead of it just being rush job. I've had a Lotta rush jobs. I have to tell you very honestly. Sometimes these shows actually are rush job and I'm really being very very aware of allowing ideas to start to foster to fester to blossom before. Just jumping on the Mike in throwing up on you and I hope I haven't thrown up on you. I might have and I apologize if I have. But I've learned and I'm learning now to take things a little bit more slowly so in this new stage of mind beyond the verge after selling the business and being out there now in no man's land in a lot of respects still needing to work still needing to produce things that produce income. I am being very very very mindful of not forcing and so I thought this was something worth sharing because I think that we in general because of the speed at which were all moving we in general are pushing things a little bit too quickly forcing things to happen so for me now. Just having announced the sale of me business last week. I'm getting a lot of emails and messages from people saying what's next. What are you doing? And I've been thinking about this for a long time because I've been thinking about selling the business for a long time but now that it's out in the open. I need to have some answers or do I do. I need to have answers and this is something that this type. A woman here. It's been hard to sit with. Can I truly just tell people that I am deeply listening to where where I'm feeling called to teach how I'm feeling call to teach what I'm feeling called to share? Maybe it's not teaching at all. Maybe I'm done teaching. I don't know one thing I know. Is that the business that I've been involved with the mental wellness. Business is is really exciting. And it's holding my attention and it's it's really Should I say it's it's satisfying my creative juices right now and so it's been Something I've been really leaning into so I'm loving that but it's very very different in some ways than I've been what I've been doing in the past. You know talking to people about the microbiome talking to people about mental wellness in the gut brain access. It's been really call and it's challenged me and that's one part of what I'm going to be doing going forward. But but the other part as far as what? I've been doing as a teacher is still unknown and so that online course that I manifest a few months ago is still just. It's like just simmering and I'm going back to it maybe once a week and trying to really listen into right timing when the right timing is to bring that on into the market. I'm not sure yet but I think it's it's coming. It's coming so I tell you this as a just an example for your life.

"Welcome to on the verge I'm your host Care Bradley bringing you those weekly blasts of no hype advice essential practices and strategies to early morning when I feel like I have the most courage to step up to the Mike and to share my soul with you all last week was big really really big who I have heard from so many of you and thank you all for me churchman for sharing your stories and for also just supporting me in my sharing of of what it I've discovered over the last actually just the last few weeks about the loneliness and sadness I've been feeling as a leader as a business owner as a woman leading other women and all that comes with that it's been in credible what happens or what's happened for me in just pointing out personally to myself and then then declaring it to others what I've been feeling so deep deep deep deep down in my soul that I have not been willing to admit or honestly that I haven't had the words to admit it it it's opened up Pandora's box it's opened up so much for me now that I am seeing I'm seeing shadows I'm seeing where I've been hiding I'm seeing where I've been holding back where I've been doubting myself so what I want to share with you today and again this comes to you raw and unplugged I don't know any other way to be anymore there's no strategizing here there's no maneuvering I'm not trying to get some specific point across to you wall what I'm trying to do is to be as raw as I can because I feel like when we're that way with one another it hooks and unhinges something in each other and give each other permission to be raw an clogged as well I hope that makes sense my rawness my unpreparedness my unscripted nece will I hope in some ways allow you to do the same with yourself and then with others at work at home wherever so what I have been playing with in this truly is playing because is there's no method there's no strategy there's no right or wrong here I've been massaging is Coming Undone am I willing to come undone even more I feel like last week in in talking to you all all about my loneliness admitting that I really felt very empty as a leader as a business owner in the traditional business structure top-down employer employee that there's really no winning that game there is there is no ultimate a collaboration there is no way to really walk side by side with somebody in an old business structure and that was and being in this new business of mine this Amari business this mental wellness company that I'm partnering with has made me see that the old business structures the old business models are are always going to separate people and so because of that I was able to then identify by some shadows and where I was hiding and the reason why I'm saying this is because there are things that we're doing in life there are ways of being there are activities that we do that are keeping those those shadows at bay there are they are keeping things undercover there are things that we do every single day activities people that we hang out with discussions that we have New Cycles that we get ourselves caught in foods that we eat act buddies I exercise that we do that are that that will keep those shadows at bay that would keep them hidden and it's not until we're willing to come undone either deliberately and intentionally or unintentionally we like for me I was I unintentionally exposed my shadows I wasn't looking for the loneliness to rear its ugly head I'm so grateful it did but it was unintentional but I think if we ask the question are you willing to come undone you ready and willing to undone then I think we can coax though shadows forward so the question that live been playing with are what are my ways in what are your ways in and what are those doorways into the depths of your soul what are your doorways into allowing yourself off to be exposed to yourself what are your ways in that may deep lifted that veil to where you've been hiding behind which you've been hiding see for me goes beyond being lonely and sad and feeling like I'm doing this all by myself that is big it was the it was a big it was like those big doors those those castle doors that were closed and I layer of of doors of the castle I studied many many years ago caroline miss did a lot of work with Theresa of Avila Saint Teresa of Avila who wrote a book hundreds of years ago about our castle all our inner castle and she talks about their many many rooms of our castle the castle tours the castle being our soul and this is just coming through so I'm just going to say it so there are many many doors there many rooms in the castle for me one of the big doors was that opened his was admitting that I was feeling very lonely in this as a sole owner of a yoga studio big doors so first level right going over the over the moat right into that first big door now I'm seeing that there's all these rooms all of these rooms and I wanna see them all I want to go in every room and I want to check out what's in there and what's been being away in the corners of those rooms because as I've said so often but I'm understanding so much more is that life is short life is short thirty thousand days on average we get and if we're hiding away and hide in pieces of our soul away in these rooms then we're not living fully then we're hiding behind veils and are not being fully authentic and I have felt that but I didn't know how to access it I didn't know how to act I sit and in and in noting this this this big big Aha that I had that what I was feeling and why always feeling in Arthur in authentic and why I was feeling distant genuine was because I wasn't willing to admit that I was lonely and sad in I in my job in my passion as a business owner dot was huge now those big doors flew open and now I'm starting to notice all these others so the doorway in for me to opening up those big doors was was getting my was really modulating microbiome that I've been on these products to improve my gut brain access through Amari and I'm happy to talk to any of you about it I'm not here to sell you on it this is big for me very very big both the products in the business model those were my doorway in those those allowed me to open up the big big castle doors to seeing my loneliness what are your doorways in what are your ways in is it is it being in nature for me that's another way and I've been really focusing on that being in nature getting my hands on the dirt my feet on the on the ground gene trees seeing the sunset seeing the sunrise smelling the air watching the wind or listening to the wind in the trees her those allow those veils to lift so I can see more clearly where I am who I am in this moment your doorway in may be through cooking their simple guys they're free usually the doorways in our free it may be through silence or solitude reading or writing art music in the garden with your dog with your children with your spouse what are the doorways that open the gate waist to your soul and if you know are you doing them enough are you leaning in and and playing at that level enough in your life to allow your your shadows to be exposed. Gosh I hope this makes sense because it's coming through unplugged suggest to review here to say it in another way because things have been reintegrating in my life in a different way and my neuro chemistry actually has changed over the last few months be because I have been looking at life through different door different Lens I have been able to see where I've been hiding it's not been fully formed what's what's not been supporting me in moving forward in my life something has shifted it's allowed me to see the shadows in the places I've been hiding and in exposing a few of those shadows I now recognize oh my God there are more things that I need to look at lights have been turning on and so if you're feeling stuck in your life if you're feeling stuck in your body if you're feeling stuck in your work you're feeling stuck in a relationship then please ask yourself what are my ways in what have been the ways in for me off in that way because it will be revealed it will be revealed the autos are ready to come forth when we are ready to come undone it may mean you spending retirement silence it may mean you spending more time in nature it may mean tain no to things that keep you busy and turning your attention to yourself turning your attention to your life being willing and ready to come undone to come unhinged a little bit more we can't force the shadows to come forth I didn't force these big to come forward and I think I've been coaxing that and forward for the last few months because my uneasiness has become more painful my uneasiness has become more apparent and so I've been asking and digging and digging and verbalize your uneasiness right now that's okay keep coaxing it forward and we cokes foreword by spending Heim in those activities or in the places where we are able to touch the center of ourselves were deeply but if we keep spinning our wheels and we keep racing and we staying busy and we keep buying or consuming in different ways then the shadows will remain hidden behind those big iron gates of the castle so I stand with you all I stand by your side as we clean among our lives as we.

"Welcome to on the verge. I am your host Care Bradley bringing you as always weekly blasts of no hype advice essential practices and strategies ways to wake up show up and shift yourself from feeling frazzled and frenzied to feeling fully alive and inflow here. I am back from my seven week cross country trip. It is so good to be back in my closet here by myself. It's been a little challenging to record and what a trip. Oh my Gosh I will unpack doc this trip for you over the course of the next few weeks a few months. I don't want to download it all in one shot but let me tell you to be out in nature to be in new environments to be in this state of awe for an extended period of time is not only rejuvenating but I feel like it's essential for us as especially as we get older and we we find ourselves stuck in patterns habits and stuck in jobs in relationships and just stuck in a way of being perhaps not liking ourselves not liking how we feel as we're as we're aging getting <music> out into new environments in New Situations New People new food new places to sleep. It wakes us up it makes us see where we're stuck anyhow I could go on and on but that is not my topic for today but just a little tidbit head bit for you to carry along and and chew on for the next few days what I want to talk to you about. Today is what I am super inspired about as I am assuming you may be as well and that is the women's national soccer team and they are incredible championship what an inspiration what a triumph not only for female soccer players but for female athletes and for females in general that are that have dreams that have goals they were just the model dome and exemplary model of what it takes to win and we're not talking about winning against others although they did big time we're talking about just winning that sense of winning the day I that sense of winning your life what they modeled which was so amazing and you may have read about it or listen to was this combination of excellence. Tremendous work ethic confidence and collaboration and it was no joke people woke up all over the world to recognize them now at if you've heard anybody talking about the team in the game people wanted to want them to lose you know we're always rooting for the underdog. People wanted to want them to not not have this back to back. Championship people felt like they were cocky and arrogant but down underneath all of our unconscious bias sees right are limiting limiting beliefs about what we think champions are like they exuded a calm confidence and a work ethic and discipline that carried them through so i WanNa talk about one in specific instance or actually it happened multiple times in that is Meghan repeat no the captain of the team Purple Hair pink hair short blonde hair Sassy and fierce and totally bad ass her posts. If you watched any of the Games but there's the picture at the top of the of this podcast her posts that power pose when she scored a goal spoke volumes volumes and I'm GonNa get a little choked up here because it spoke volumes for us as women you know men you see it all the time in on football field you see it on the soccer field when they score. They have their dance. They have their claps. They have their handshakes. They you know touch touch booties and hips in this and not may scream to the crowd but when women do it. Why is that being arrogant so what I loved about Meghan re piano was that she owned success for us all? I'm so grateful because she's inspired me. I know she's inspired my daughters who are both pretty fierce soccer players themselves to stand on the field and to throw your arms out to to lift your chest into to lift your Chin with this confidence of here. I am and look what we were able to do together. This is a power pose that I am. I am putting out there for all of us to practice. I think about her power pose and I smile and I have challenged myself to start taking the post to start striking. Doing the routine oppose or the power pose now years back amy cuddy who is a researcher at Harvard did a tremendous Ted talk on the power of posing and she came up with these the superman or superwoman pose and she did the research to show that we when we do strike these poses it changes our physiology. It changes the way our nervous system is reacting changes changes how we feel our level of confidence and our level of brightness and our level of risk taking as well so this isn't new at all in fact go back and watch it. I'll put her. I'll put her talk in the show notes. I know there's been a lot of controversy just in the last few years as to whether this is true or not but you know at that always happens when there's somebody that is courageous enough and rebellious enough to put stuff out there and she did it gave me cutty that is so I I totally bowed her. Regardless mega piano now has taken the stage with this new power pose when we strike this kind of post when we lift our chest and lift our Chin Chen and open our our hearts really so shoulders back and down heart lifted when we do this we are saying to the world I am here. This is who I am no apologies. Yes no apologies necessary. I like who I am. I like who I am in the world and I'm going to share my opinion and I'm going to share my uniqueness. I'm going to share share my purple hair. I'm going to share my opinion on certain topics. I am going to shine when we do that. We give others. Marianne Williamson says we give the others permission permission to do the same. When we allow our own light to shine we automatically she said give others permission to do the same powerful poem that I again will put in the show notes so here's here's the takeaway for you? Your biology becomes your psychology. Fewer biology becomes your psychology if your immune system is compromised if you're not sleeping if you're not eating well if you're not sleeping. Well you know you feel like crap and you don't perform as good. I don't perform as as well mentally you're not there for others. Perhaps you're not as engaging as fearless as <hes> cooperative with the world but when you're biology is. Light and balanced and coherent and healthy and well rested and Well Fed and well oiled. You're psychology shifts dramatically. You become more engaging thing you become more collaborative and cooperative you become more courageous to speak your truth to own your vision to speak up and and and make that that provocative or revolutionary claim this is what happens it's not just about trying hard guys and Gals we can only try so hard before we burn out we can only push so much but when we have the support of our biology things <unk> start to shift and they not only shift once they start to shift consistently day after day we start taking those small courageous steps day after day we start throwing our arms out lifting our Chin and lifting in our gaze day after day we start doing this and others notice and you know what I feel is just as important when our biology feeds and fuels and ignites. It's our psychology we acknowledge it in others and this is huge. I've said it many times I say it in the context of women but I mean it in the context of of humanity empowered humans empower humans empowered women empower women so you can look at megamerger piano and you can judge her and you could say she's arrogant and and she's cocky and who is she to do that or you can sit in your own power and say rock on sister if you're I'm not able to say rock on sister then look at yourself. What is it about you? That's playing small. Where are you holding back? Where are you not lifting your <unk> Heart in your chin and expressing yourself fully? Where's your biology holding you back so our practice for this week is to strike that post news take the post? Even if you feel silly now you don't have to go and do it in the subway. Although I dare you to and if you do please let me know start to do it in your bedroom. Start to stand in your office and strike the pose and hold it not just once right not just like a little snippet. Hold it so that your physiology starts to remember. What's what's going on in the power? Pose your physiology starts to remember and starts to hone in and entrain in this coherence state of breath of heart rate of just being in the sense of being settled and steady and stable an open and available striking oppose so let's start with three times a day for let's do it for I. I'm trying to do it for like fifteen seconds. It's a long fifteen seconds at first. I'll tell you strike the pose for fifteen eighteen seconds when do right now I am in even though I'm sitting in it and hearts lifted my arms out. My fingers are stretched out wide palms up Chin is lifted right gaze up here here. I am world here. I am make your biology support your psychology and see what happens. So when do we do this well. I'm GONNA give you a couple of suggestions. You could figure out the rest I would say it's at times of the day well firstly. Let's always do it in the morning always in the morning just stand up in the morning. You don't have to do it. I think Oh brush your teeth. Wash your face. Do what you need to do. Maybe even and have a cup of coffee and then strike your pose and I dare you to even do it in front of the mirror and smile and gays in your eyes ooh tough I know but why the heck not other couple of times you can do it. It is when you know your energy is low. When you know you get cranky right? We all get cranky. Let's face it after work day. We'll get angry and we start snipping in judging when <music> are those times for you. Is it that dip in the late afternoon. Is that when you walk in the House after work when is it. When are you getting frustrating and handlery cranky strike at then strike at Dan.

"Welcome to on the verge with care. Bradley weekly blasts of no hype advice and essential practices to settle down show up and shift from crazy. Busy too high definition high-voltage living. Hey, everyone CARA here back at you for another episode. I want to talk to you today about a quote, I read a few years ago that really stopped me in my tracks. It was a quote by pem show dron who is a Buddhist nun meditation teacher master phenomenal writer, and it was such a simple quote. She wrote we keep missing the moment that we're in. We keep missing the moment that we're in. And it woke me up made my eyes pop out saying, whoa. Wait a second. I do I keep missing moments of my life. You know, snap a finger in. It's a year later. It's another Christmas. My kids are older. You know, it's amazing. How life seems to be speeding by? Well. I don't wanna miss any more of my life. I don't want life to fly by I kinda like hanging out in my life. And so this quote, really stopped me in my tracks to think. Wow. How can I show up for my life? How can I not miss it? How can I more fully experience? What's happening? And so it brought me back to my childhood. And how I was as a kid, and we were all like this. You know, when we were on the swings. We were on the swings. When we we were eating ice cream. We were eating ice cream. I'm getting excited just talking about it when we were crying, right? You're on the floor crying. We really fully experienced whatever was happening in the moment. We spent very little time thinking about the past and the future. And those are direct experiences, which is what we're going to talk about today. So going back to myself as a child, I remember, I was very independent. And some of my first words that I was able to string together were let me do. Let me do let me do. And I realize now that was my way of saying I want to experience this let me hammer the nail in you know, let me put the clothes in the drier. Whatever it was I was insisting on doing. Let me do. Let me do my life. Let me show up. Let me experience it. And so this is the idea of having direct experiences. It's been a topic. I've been really intrigued with for a very long time. How can I fully experience this moment of my life without? Dragging along my passed without jumping ahead to my future without holding onto grudges or conditioning or doubt and fear which so often block us from just living fully. And so I started to pull apart this idea of direct experience. By the way, we all have them all the time. So this isn't anything new by the way, this is maybe hopefully just gonna point you to once already going on in your life. So in my very simple world, and I live in a very simple world, by the way. I'm not like a super academic, right? I just want things very clean. Simple. Give it to me straight. I see it as us having most of the time three types of experiences, and I write about this in on the verge. But I'm gonna explain it to you now because I feel like I can explain it in verbal communication so much with so much more enthusiasm perhaps than I was able to write about it. Three types of experience. First one's really simple to understand. It's called a secondhand experience. Secondhand experiences happen when somebody tells you about the great yoga class they went to or somebody tells you about the movie they saw or about the great burgers down the street. Somebody's telling you about their experience, and it doesn't always have to just good stuff. Right. Somebody's telling you about a break-up or a drama at work or something. So you're just kind of tapping into this their experience. Secondhand right. You're not experiencing it sort of like watching sports game. You know, you're not on the field. You're not really totally experiencing. What it feels like to be in the game? You're watching it from the sidelines. And you can't imagine what these players are going through because you're not experiencing it. So anyway, just to keep. It short secondhand experiences. Are so often what the media Madison Avenue is is proclaiming right? They're telling us if you buy this car, you'll feel this way. If you go on this vacation, you'll feel this way. And so it gets us thinking about perhaps what this experience might be like, but we're not in it. Right. Then there's a second type of experience. I call it a muted experience muted experiences happen when we are doing what we're doing. We're with the person we're in the yoga class where at the ball game where eating a hot dog. I don't need hotdogs, but you can eat hotdogs. That's fine. I just don't eat them. But muted experiences occur when you're doing something. But you're mentally distracted or emotionally drained. And when this happens, you're. Experience is muted it's muddled or perhaps a little soggy, and we all feel this. We all is all this happens to all of us, by the way. So imagine imagine maybe it happens to you that you're driving home from work, and you pull up to your driveway, and you stop your car, and you think wow. How did I get here? Right. Where was I where someone's talking to you, maybe your kids or partner, and they're telling you a story, and you're kind of listening, but not really you're off thinking about what you're going to eat for dinner. You're not fully experiencing. What's happening in the moment. Because your mind is pulled elsewhere. And so this happens to us. In fact, many of us spend much of the time kind of here. But not really so think about that kind of here. But not really, and so what happens is that the moment goes by and you feel like you've missed it. Right. You know, so often people say, and I get this. It takes a few days just to settle down to actually arrive on vacation, right? The first couple of days, you're just you're your energy is elsewhere as opposed to being right here in the moment. And then there's the last type of experience, which is the direct experience. The direct experience is your first hand knowledge of a sensation state or feeling. It's exactly what you're feeling in any given moment through your five senses taste touch sound sight smell. So in the last episode, we did this practice called stop take five right? Take five breaths and experience and notice your experiences. So it was the beginning of the cultivation of becoming familiar
