The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Sophie Chiche. Sophie is a renowned life strategist, multi-talented entrepreneur, author, speaker, journalist, and psychologist. She is the founder of Be Current Today which is an innovative methodology that turns traditional productivity on its head. Likewise she is also the founder of the celeb-favorite Urban Sweat Lodge Shape House and LifeByMe.com which is an online platform where all sorts of people share meaning and where different personalities such as Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington, Seth Godin, Mariel Hemingway, Kenny Loggins and Jason Mraz have contributed to the website.

She published The Power of Personal Accountability: Achieve What Matters to You with Mark Samuel in 2004 and Petite Eloge de le Reponsabilité, French Edition in 2005. Equal parts philosophical and practical, Sophie has a unique ability to cut through the BS that keep people trapped in frameworks that don’t match their dreams. Sophie’s presence and care create a bond where individuals, staff, and businesses feel supported and connected, which breeds safety and brings courage that leads to incredible results.

Fueled by the desire to share, inspire, activate, and amplify, Sophie’s lifelong dedication to exploring the question of “why?” has taken her all over the world. She’s presented speeches and connected with movers and shakers like Arianna Huffington and Nelson Mandela with the goal of advancing human consciousness. Sophie’s helped craft businesses and social ventures of all shapes and sizes, written for several renowned international publications, and served as a coach for high-powered entrepreneurs and executives in large corporations.

Her work has been featured on Ellen, Good Morning America, E!, The Today Show, Billboard, NY Times, LA Times, TEDx, and the Huffington Post. Born in Paris, lived in Barcelona, Sophie now currently resides in Los Angeles.

In this show,  Sophie and Lian spoke about her experiences of being 320lb to losing much of that weight and what she's discovered about feeling her feelings, physical expression, judgements of others, what's true for her and why she believes created that experience in the first place - we went deep!

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Sophie's experience of being larger and then smaller is a powerful example of how our physical expression is received by others, regardless of our other qualities
  • I love Sophie's insight on WHY she created that experience of herself and life - this is such an illuminating question to ask ourselves
  • Harnessing the conscious creation of our expression in alignment with our Soul's Will means that we may or may not align with cultural expectations in various ways - our work is to express ourselves anyway

This week's show is with Jonathan Bowden. Jonny made the transition to coaching, consulting and training as his main vocation in 2014 after several years of working in the corporate world.  He had a lifelong calling to growth, evolution and full realisation of the human potential and has combined his passion for personal development and changework with broader business development and strategic consulting roles in both the public and private sector.

His real passion - and the thing that sits at the heart of all of his work - is people. More than anything else, he enjoys supporting and guiding individuals and groups to achieve the kind of personal and professional success that they truly desire, and to feel more content, fulfilled and satisfied as they do so. Not by giving them what they do not have, but by helping them to finally see through what has been getting in the way.

His own personal experience has shown him that there is little that a committed human being cannot achieve, create, recover or come back from. No exceptions. His own work embodies both the internal and external experience necessary to achieve this.

In this show, Jonny and Lian explored expressing your truth, even when it could cost you the approval of others, and the challenges and gifts that living this way can bring.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Jonny shared that for him, living from Truth, is a way of being that means expressing his truth even when it might not garner approval, is a choiceless choice - this was already present for him pre-Covid, and this period simply presented a new opportunity to continue deep and further on that path
  • The more we're grounded in our own Truth, the less other people's reactions will compel us to take action... every time we're feeling compelled, it shines a light on where there's work to be done
  • The reason to live this way, devoted to Truth, isn't to get external rewards, though they may well be present, I love how Jonny expressed it  "There is a point where the internal experience becomes the reward in itself"

The making of this show airs live in our Facebook group on the first Thursday at 5pm (UK time) every month. 

In this episode, I...

🌟 Shared what I’ve been up to in the past month (what I’ve been consuming and creating)

🌟 Dived deep into the topic: How to discover the real cause of anxiety and benefit from its hidden gift

We’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.

The practices I suggested:

  • Whether you experience anxiety or not... be honest... where is fear showing up for you?
  • Where do you feel you're being called to next: the path of ascension, sovereignty, descension? 
  • What aligned action will you take to walk that path?

This week's show is with William Whitecloud. William is a best-selling author and a creative development trainer. His famous publications include The Magician's Way: What It Really Takes to Find Your Treasure, The Last Shaman, and Secrets Of Natural Success; Five Steps to Unlocking Your Genius.’  Through the pandemic, he made his foundational 5 day-training, Create Your Destiny, which he made available for free as a 5-week online course.

He is the founder and chairman of Natural Success  which is a training and mentoring provider.

He now resides in Santa Monica, California where he enjoys time with his family, writing and at the same time developing movies.

In this show, William and Lian went deeper into the power of focus, the two different ways fear shows up and pulls your focus away from where you want it, and how to continue to be a powerful creator even when circumstances are creating limitations, such as during the last 18 months. 

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Our life indicates where our focus is - but if it isn't where we think we've been focused it's because our subconscious focus is really on lack and fear
  • Once we're focusing on a heart-based vision, fear will still chirp up with obstacles - listening to it and reassuring it works far better than using brute force to shut it up
  • As powerful creators we don't need to be victims to circumstances, we can use any and all circumstances to create with

We’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.

The practices I suggested:

  • Decide if sovereignty is important to you and if so, devote to it for yourself first and foremost, and your children 
  • Create a vision for your family
  • Model and speak to your children about the power that comes from being sovereign, a self leader
