The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Phil Goddard, an internationally renowned coach, author, speaker, leadership trainer, and lover of life and humanity. He is a published author and the host of The Coaching Life Podcast. His work centres around transforming relationships through a deeper understanding of love and the nature of how our experience of life is created. With humour and sincerity, he combines over twenty-one years in I.T. and Telecoms corporate leadership with twelve years as a professional coach, to help organisations build harmonious teams utilising the most potent force in leadership - love.

He also works with individuals to help them develop a deeply grounded understanding of the principles behind our human experience and live wonderfully productive, happy lives, connected to love, ease and compassion for humanity. He has coached Hollywood actors, international models, journalists, artists, authors, film directors, corporate executives, and numerous business owners, leaders and entrepreneurs.

In this week's show, Phil and I explored whether it's possible to harbour resentment in one part of your life and be truly, deeply happy in another. This topic was inspired by a post that Phil wrote in which he said 'True happiness is the heart that holds no resentment, the crystal clear untainted by drops of red.' we explored this through our own personal experiences and insights. It was actually pretty revealing for me personally!

I always love talking to Phil - he has such honesty, humour and depth and as ever, he didn't disappoint - this is a delightful episode!

What you'll learn from this episode:

Resentment often comes with a potency and a proactivity which means it takes up our time and energy to engage with it, when our thoughts are filled with resentment they can't also be filled with joy.

Whilst it's pretty normal to feel resentment for someone doing someone negative to us is that part of our deeper nature to feel that way or is it simply our conditioning? As Phil said 'normal isn't always natural'. If we were living in a more primal way, it may well be that a lack of resentment is what we would consider normal!

As we understand why people are behaving the way they are - that they're doing the best according to their thoughts in the moment - it makes little sense to feel resentment, instead a natural outcome is that we feel compassion. The wonderful thing is is that we all have the capacity for this to happen: to lose resentment, and to gain love and happiness.

This week's show is with Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova, founder of Birth Into Being, an international collective; dedicated to conscious evolution. Working with the healing modality of Limbic Imprint ReCoding, utilising concepts of epigenetics and neuroplasticity to effect lasting change in the inner worlds of our consciously evolving community.

Since 1982 Elena has been inspiring people all over the world to bring Consciousness into making and raising children. She was one of the organizers of the birth camps at the Black Sea in Russia, where women gave birth in shallow lagoons, in the presence of wild dolphins.

Elena is the creator of the revolutionary documentary 'Birth As We Know It’ (2006; full DVD is 3,5 hr, incl. all bonus features). She is a Spiritual Midwife to thousands of people, perfecting her “Birth Into Being” Method, training other facilitators, who are now using her Method in 28 countries in all major languages. Elena is featured in the recently released UN sponsored book, “Force Such As the World Had Never Known - Women Creating Change,” as one of the 30 most influential grassroots women in the world.  She recently received the 'Legendary Leader' Award, and was a featured keynote speaker at countless conferences.

In this week's show, we explored how adults can suffer from trauma sustained during birth or early childhood and how Elena's 'Birth into being method’ helps people to heal.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • There is a heritage of trauma, passed down through the generations via conception, pregnancy, birth and early years. If we want to give our future generations the best chance of a beautiful life, we need to shift the focus earlier and earlier - even pre-conception in terms of choosing the right partner, someone who is conscious and aware of their connection to the source they come from.
  • The Birth into Being method is based on 40 different methods or ceremonies, specific movements and breathing which activate our cortex, limbic and reptilian brain together. It takes the nervous system and sorts everything out in a slightly different way.
  • When we've healed our birth trauma we are open to be who we truly are to flow over with love, sexuality and creativity.

This week's show is with Nicky Bartley, she is an International Coach and Trainer who has a passion for working with women.  She has done work with corporates, prisons, small charitable organisations and panic attack sufferers.  

In this week's show, Nicky shares her incredible story of going from being £150k in debt and about to be made homeless to working as a successful coach, loving life and being free of her overthinking about money.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Nicky's story of the two different times she was homeless (or about to be) show how our thoughts about something are creating our experience of it. The first time was one of the most fun times of her life whereas the second was filled with fear and shame.
  • When we stop overthinking money and the risks of not having it, we can be open to life and to connection with other people. Nicky's stories of enrolling clients in circumstances when money and enrolling clients were the last thing on her mind are great examples of that!
  • I loved Nicky's summary at the end: "Money flows when I flow"
