Episode 37: Upcycling Stress

podcast Nov 13, 2019

What if I told you that stress was created FOR you BY you, because somewhere deep down you believe it would help you? And what if I told you that your emotions, even stress, always has a positive intent?

In this episode I’m sharing with you a concept called Upcycling, and when we get skilled at applying this concept to our difficult emotions, we begin to transform what we believed to be negative experience into an opportunity to dive EVEN DEEPER into ourselves so that instead of experiencing stress the way we normally do… we begin to cultivate expansion, peace, and love.

Examples used in this podcast range from why we don’t go for the promotion, why it’s so hard to lose the last 8-10 pounds, and why you may still be single.
