Hey there Luv,
so good to have you here!
I highly encourage you watching the movie called “Yes-Man” with Jim Carrey.
Notice where you feel resistance in your life and become curious about it. Next time you say no to something, stop for a moment and question your “no”. Reevaluate and see if you still want to say know or if you want to allow your life to be open for a gentle but important shift.

Hello, hello, and welcome to the BorealisUnknown:
experience. I’m your host Aurora, and very happy to beUnknown:
spending some time with you today on this snowy, April,Unknown:
winter day in Canada, can you hear in my voice that I’m slowlyUnknown:
but surely getting sick and tired of winter? I don’t know,Unknown:
maybe you do. All right Long story short, I make no claims toUnknown:
be a health care practitioner or any professional health adviceUnknown:
person, if you are on medication, if you are seeing aUnknown:
therapist, please don’t make any changes based on what I sayUnknown:
here. Because what I’m sharing is my experience, my opinions,Unknown:
and especially my tools that helped me throughout my 30s whenUnknown:
I started my healing journey. And it is tools that I wish IUnknown:
had in my teenage years, and especially in my 20s. But it’sUnknown:
okay, it’s not too late. And I can hopefully offer someUnknown:
shortcuts to people out there who listen to this. And, yeah,Unknown:
if you get value out of the episodes, please share withUnknown:
people you care, or send a review on Apple podcasts andUnknown:
helps tremendously for other people to find the podcast andUnknown:
then to also feel empowered, inspired and especially lessUnknown:
lonely. We want to make sure to, to connect with people aroundUnknown:
the globe. And it’s amazing to connect with people from SriUnknown:
Lanka, from Nepal, from Germany, my beloved country, and all overUnknown:
Europe. And I love that you. Yeah, send donations, it makesUnknown:
it all so much easier. It’s a one, one woman show here. I’mUnknown:
doing it all. And I want to make sure that I spare you, you know,Unknown:
sponsors or weird advertisement. So it is going to stay free ofUnknown:
advertising. But to make it sustainable, please considerUnknown:
sending a little bit of your donation. And for the peopleUnknown:
who’ve done that already. I love you, I care for you. And I’m soUnknown:
motivated and will keep showing up. Today I want to talk aboutUnknown:
resistance, the resistance, I have a request for an episodeUnknown:
that I got a week ago or so and I will make sure to address it.Unknown:
We’ll be talking about putting a phone away at times and howUnknown:
people react to that. So if we want to make sure to, you know,Unknown:
be more present with the people who are sitting right in frontUnknown:
of us, and we put our phone away and then somebody wants to reachUnknown:
us and then they get upset. How do we deal with feelings ofUnknown:
guilt? And how do we deal with overall like our phoneUnknown:
addiction. I’m number one phone addict, coffee addict, pineappleUnknown:
and avocado addicts and I just love talking about that becauseUnknown:
it’s important to be to be aware of those little weird addictionsUnknown:
that we have and phone and screen addiction is a thing is aUnknown:
part of pretty much every every person’s life unless they areUnknown:
very disciplined. And we can learn discipline with ourUnknown:
phones. Alright, without further ado, I want to talk aboutUnknown:
resistance today resolving releasing resistance. So many ofUnknown:
us are constantly trying to control and to find out beforeUnknown:
anything can start. What an outcome could be. And when youUnknown:
ask people what they desire, what they want in their life,Unknown:
and I not only experienced that with my beloved coachingUnknown:
patients clients, but also with friends or family, they usuallyUnknown:
name what they do not want to see in the future. So forUnknown:
example, I asked somebody where do you want to go? vacationingUnknown:
like travel? Where do you want to travel to next? Well, lastUnknown:
time I went to Mexico, and it wasn’t that awesome, so I’m notUnknown:
going to go back there. Also my vacation in Italy two years ago,Unknown:
I didn’t really like the hotel, so I’m not going to go there.Unknown:
And I listened patiently. But then can’t help. But point outUnknown:
that they didn’t really answer my question. I asked what youUnknown:
wanted to do, and not what you don’t want to do. And it is aUnknown:
weird thing in the Western world. I’m just thinking, like,Unknown:
that’s why I had to hesitate, because maybe it’s in otherUnknown:
cultures, too. But I noticed that in a North AmericanUnknown:
culture, extremely, that when you ask somebody, what theyUnknown:
want, that they first tell you all the things they don’t want.Unknown:
And that is not how you get to your goal. That is not howUnknown:
you’re going to have a fulfilled relationship. And especially inUnknown:
relationships, if you keep pointing out the things that youUnknown:
don’t like. So if every time you open up your mouth, it is aboutUnknown:
something that you want to change or differently, to seeUnknown:
being done differently or control, then your partner isUnknown:
going to get tired and sick of you very quickly. On theUnknown:
opposite side of the ad. If you point out things, whenever stuffUnknown:
goes right, then you create a beautiful positive momentum andUnknown:
a relationship. And things can flow more nicely. But let justUnknown:
the relationships be relationships for a moment. AndUnknown:
let’s just focus on you right now. And think about how weUnknown:
resist. To relax, we resist to surrender. We want to haveUnknown:
advice right away, we want to have solutions right away. WeUnknown:
want instant gratification. We don’t like waiting, we areUnknown:
impatient. And we resist the idea that things could beUnknown:
unfolding. Naturally, we resist the idea that magic can happen,Unknown:
that things can happen that we could have never anticipated. SoUnknown:
with this episode today, I just want us to be aware for a secondUnknown:
on how controlled our life and surroundings actually are. AndUnknown:
how this is not. Reality in in life when it comes to, you knowUnknown:
the important stuff and life. Yeah, you can predict theUnknown:
weather, you can predict maybe when the next train is going toUnknown:
Berlin from Munich, you can predict when the next hockeyUnknown:
game is going to be in Calgary. But what I mean is, life inUnknown:
itself cannot be predicted. This is where death is such a hugeUnknown:
teacher because death sometimes comes out of nowhere and teachesUnknown:
you how valuable life is without death. I don’t know if if weUnknown:
were not to die. I don’t know how much more wasteful we wouldUnknown:
be. It’d be pretty scary actually. But yeah, going backUnknown:
to resistance is that we resist the chance that something couldUnknown:
unfold beautifully. Without us controlling it. We resist restUnknown:
and relaxation. For most people. It is very, very tough to getUnknown:
into a relaxed state without numbing themselves with NetflixUnknown:
or alcohol or porn, or whatever you can think of that is niceUnknown:
and distract distracting and an awesome dopamine hit.Unknown:
It’s it’s really a tough thing to do. I put a finger on. But IUnknown:
see it in my yoga classes here and the year there relaxationUnknown:
classes I meant. It is hard for people to at first realize,Unknown:
okay, I’m going to keep my eyes closed, I’m going to moveUnknown:
slowly, I’m not going to push myself. And I’m going to use theUnknown:
pillows and bolsters in a way that I feel supported and canUnknown:
relax. For some people, this is really hard to do. And thenUnknown:
after 10 minutes, 20 minutes, they start melting into theseUnknown:
bolsters. And it’s just so beautiful to see that, yeah,Unknown:
actually, when there is a space created for people where theyUnknown:
can relax and let go, it is easier. But when you are atUnknown:
home, when you have your monkey mind, spinning, and spinning andUnknown:
spinning, when you have all distractions around you, it isUnknown:
very tough to let go of control and to let go of certain thoughtUnknown:
patterns and belief systems. So what I invite you to do in theUnknown:
future. And that’s actually a very cool thing to do. And itUnknown:
changed so much in my life. And it was inspired by a Jim CarreyUnknown:
movie called Yes, man movie that I highly recommend. I will makeUnknown:
sure to put it in the show notes is a guy who kept saying no,Unknown:
kept rejecting, kept resisting, and something happens to him, IUnknown:
forgot what it was. And then all of a sudden, he starts sayingUnknown:
yes, to absolutely everything. And his life changes so much.Unknown:
Because he now is open to novelty to surprises. And he hasUnknown:
a trusting heart, all of a sudden, at the beginning of theUnknown:
film of first half of the film, you can tell that he’s veryUnknown:
rigid, he has his heart closed, he resists to see beauty, he canUnknown:
only see beauty by what he knows and what feels familiar. But asUnknown:
soon as that event like I think it was a pretty traumatic eventUnknown:
that happens to him, changes him, he starts opening up hisUnknown:
heart, and starts to be curious, and starts to be understandingUnknown:
and loving. And it’s just so beautiful to see. And I wishUnknown:
that for everybody. I wish that for myself, for the familyUnknown:
members I love and my friends and all my listeners here thatUnknown:
you allow for beautiful little surprises you allow to justUnknown:
wander through your city without looking at your phone, and toUnknown:
look at the architecture to try new foods to talk to people thatUnknown:
you would otherwise never talk to. And to be just curious aboutUnknown:
what life has to offer for you. And to know that it is notUnknown:
controllable. It’s all just little moments of magics thatUnknown:
happen that you can only see with an open heart. It is whenUnknown:
you get invited to a party to a birthday to I don’t know an artUnknown:
gallery. And you think, Oh, I don’t like art. I don’t want toUnknown:
go and dress up tonight or I don’t want to do this like allUnknown:
those anxiety excuses that come up because they want to keep youUnknown:
in your little bubble, your little comfort zone. I hope thatUnknown:
over the next couple of days or maybe even weeks you can say yesUnknown:
to a couple of things that in the past you would have said noUnknown:
to. And of course it’s not stupid things that will harm youUnknown:
or cause death or injury to people around you or yourself.Unknown:
But it is stuff that are things sorry, that are gonna pull youUnknown:
out of your comfort zone and your ego, your little hurt ego,Unknown:
your little ego that wants to be in control all the time thatUnknown:
wants you to stay on your couch and stay small is gonna rebel,Unknown:
you’re gonna get maybe even headaches or you want to catchUnknown:
the flu. Right? The ego is so intelligent and can trick yourUnknown:
body really into feeling sick because it doesn’t want toUnknown:
change doesn’t want to Get out of the comfort zone. But thatUnknown:
you remember my little episode here and maybe even watch thatUnknown:
Jim Carrey movie called Yes man, and then realize how beautifulUnknown:
life can be when we just say a little more often. Yes toUnknown:
novelty. All right, my love my dear one. I’m going to leave youUnknown:
with that with all my love and care. If you have any episodeUnknown:
requests, please don’t hesitate to contact me on Facebook,Unknown:
Aurora Eggert or on Instagram Aurora coaching and I’d be moreUnknown:
than happy to connect. Alright, take really good care and yeah,Unknown:
I’ll be out there very soon again. Bye
