The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Lynne Forrest. Lynne is regarded as a non-traditional psychotherapist who has been in private practice for over twenty-five years, is widely known as a Reality Guide and Personal Growth Mentor for her empathy, compassion and her no-nonsense approach in dealing with life issues. She uses ancient spiritual principles to help those who struggle to find their way into right alignment with themselves and their life purpose.

Her original work in recognizing victim consciousness as a widespread epidemic with its own set of definable and recognizable characteristics has revolutionized her approach with clients and transformed the lives of many. She has developed a unique understanding of how the mind works and ways to liberate it from the throes of what she calls the “victim mind.”

Lynne came up through the ranks of experiential learning rather than the more traditional academic route and has sought and found practical ways of applying those principles for immediate positive change. She out in the mental health field in the early seventies, hired and trained by an HMO (health maintenance organization) in social work and mental health. She has been in the field of personal growth ever since - moving to the addictions field in the early eighties after successfully transforming her own addictive lifestyle into a more creative and productive one. Lynne has run her own private practice since 1985.

As a perpetual student of life and consciousness, Lynne has devoted herself to studying with masters of various disciplines. Her first teacher was her mother, Estelle Sanford, a student of metaphysics, who was herself an intuitive that drew upon her inner knowing for wisdom and spiritual truths.

In this show, Lynne and Lian spoke about the Victim Triangle (based on the Drama Triangle created by Dr. Stephen Karpman), how this is about ancient human stories and archetypes, and how we can move into observer consciousness.

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:

  • The archetypes on the Victim Triangle are defense strategies that we take on out of a core belief about who we are in world, who we are in our family, who we are as an identity that we take on, based on the feedback we're getting from the world around us
  • As we become aware of and begin to consciously participate in the story we've been living, we can actually use the same archetypes that were using to keep us in it to now begin to liberate ourselves: spotting when we're being the Victim and projecting the Persecutor on someone else
  • As we move more into what Lynne calls Observer Consciousness and we call Sovereignty we are able to watch the Victim Triangle stories play out within us and others, without being compelled to move into the Persecutor to make ourselves or them wrong for living what is a deeply human story

This week's show is with The Infinite Couple: Baba Richard and Sri Namaste. Baba and Sri are spiritual leaders and relationship alchemists, who created a potent pathway to sacred love, business growth, and spiritual alchemy. They have worked privately with some of the most exciting individuals and couples throughout the globe.

The Infinite Couple embraced the Divine Feminine and Masculine and created ultimate Couple Archetyping protocols that has resulted life-changing shifts in radical fulfillment, limitless abundance and self-actualization among individuals and couples. They are currently uplifting couples worldwide through their Couple Unification Prototypes Modality, The Framework of Marriage Mastery, The DYAD: Paradigm, and Power Of Eleven Marriage program, resulting in 11x more powerful relationships with your partner, your business, and consciousness itself.

In today’s show we explored Richard and Namaste's understanding and deep embodiment of union, how the bringing together of polarities such as Men and Women, Black and White, Spirit and Science, Light and Dark Workers, Conscious Wealth is the future - and one that is available to us now if we're willing to release our grip on homogeneity and fairness.

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:

  • In our well intended desire for fairness, we often end up creating a need to be the same, a homogeneity which means we don't get to benefit from the power of the ends of the poles or the energy created between the two
  • I loved what Richard said about how the celebration of differences is a world in which we cultivate excellence, genius, beauty and artistry - things that could be said to be some of the best qualities of humans, and certainly ones I value greatly
  • When we bring the best of ourselves, our true power, and we also join together with another powerful person then we become an engine. Something greater than the sum of its parts.
 

Resources and stuff that we spoke about:

  • The article we spoke about “The future is WE"
  • The Infinite Couple
  • The Sanctum of Feminine Transformation: A living Feminine Embodiment Mystery School and Alchemic Wisdom Tradition for women to learn embodiment and emanation of Femininity
  • The Dyad Paradigm: The DYAD is the most fundamental universal and powerful Unit of measure in the Universe. Nothing sentient is born here without the involvement of this Union. The Newest New in Consciousness, the MOVEMENT that is arising as an expression of Infinite Intelligence playing an Infinitely Individuated Coupling Game.

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: Making decisions: How to know if you’re being led by fear or love

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:

  • Have you made the decision to learn to make choices from what's right for you? If not, that's the place to begin!
  • What is your Vision?
  • Get used to how that energetic feels in your body - you can practice with smaller decisions

This week's show is with Dr. Paul J. Leslie. Paul is a psychotherapist, author, and educator in Aiken, South Carolina. Paul is a licensed therapist and a National Board Certified Fellow in Hypnotherapy. He has a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and is presently the coordinator of the psychology program at Aiken Technical College. He has authored eight books which focus on the areas of transformative psychotherapy, healing, shamanism, and personal development. Paul is a popular trainer of Solution-Based therapies, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and creative coaching applications.

In this show, Paul and Lian explored the parallels between magic and psychotherapy, the power of our context for creating the life we live, how and why we make distinctions and how they can be limiting, and how we can move from a “problem solving existence” to a magical life in which we listen to our own hearts to guide us.

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:

  • What is your Context? This is the filter through which you will see everything and create within.
  • Paul talked about the way we make distinctions - this is natural and unavoidable, the invitation is to notice when our distinction has become a problem or limitation that is creating a life that isn't the one we desire
  •  I love how Paul talked about experience vs information... this is especially relevant for coaches and therapists but is actually so helpful for all of us who wish to create a life of wonder and meaning.
