What does it mean to be human? Glimpse TV with Chela Davison

You know those people who you feel like you’ve known for multiple lifetimes when you first meet them? Chela Davison is like that for me.

After our first hour on the phone together I felt “gotten” in a really profound way. And when we finally met in person, we were doing partner yoga, laughing, and crying within the first day or two.

Chela is not only a brilliant writer and an incredibly gifted coach, she’s also one of the easiest people to be with whom I’ve ever had the privilege of being with. She’s insightful (and you’ll find out how she got that way in today’s Glimpse TV episode), she’s wacky, she’s hilarious, and she makes me feel totally safe to be all of me: all the great stuff and all the messy stuff.

No judgement.

All love and wisdom and permission.

Chela and I sat down a few months ago for a chat, Glimpse TV-style. There were giggles — perhaps even more than the usual. And questions that seemed to come out of nowhere. And a heck of a lot of wisdom from Ms. Davison.

Here’s what you’ll learn/get in this episode:

  • An exploration of the questions “What’s really going on here?” and “What does it mean to be human?” (Yep — Chela went there. Go big or go home.)
  • How to alter your way of being to transcend not-so-helpful patterns and include all the good stuff that’s working for you
  • How to talk to strangers
  • The biggest mistake people make when trying to forge a connection with other humans
  • Why pushing boundaries is one of Chela’s favorite things to do and what she gets out of it
  • Plus lots more fun and wisdom!

We all just want to feel good. Here’s how.

This morning the first thing I did after making some eggs was to sit down with Mike and go to Danielle LaPorte’s new website. I wanted to see what she had created. I wanted to feel what it felt like. I wanted to celebrate this new iteration. It felt like Christmas. A few years ago Danielle…

Guided Meditation for Money & Forgiveness

We’ve all made mistakes when it comes to money. We’ve overspent, lent the wrong person some cash, chosen a vendor who over-promised and under-delivered, paid our taxes late, lost some money in a relationship gone wrong or [insert your money mistake here.] But it’s not making financial mistakes that’s the problem. It’s holding ourselves hostage…

We remember the bliss of just accepting that we are here to be ourselves. And we remember, together, that the most powerful place for…

6 simple steps to ensuring you’re not wasting your precious time

I think we can all agree that we want to get the biggest bang for our buck when we’re working on our businesses–when we’re working on anything, for that matter. If you have even a drop of Puritan blood in you, you’ll probably agree that there is something about productivity that feels divine. And I…

Put down the flail.

Right before the holidays I made a few financial decisions that I wish I hadn’t made. Nothing catastrophic. Just some money that went places I wish it hadn’t, in retrospect. It’s made for a tighter start of 2013 than I prefer. Confession: I’ve been beating myself up about it for weeks. While traveling in Costa…

Going in.

I don’t know about you but for the past week and a half or so I’ve felt harried. Rushed. Frazzled. Spazzy. And a little fried. It’s felt like I’m on a speeding train hurtling towards the end of 2012 and not only am I not in control of it, no one is! Ever felt that…
