Podcast #187 // Paul Selig on The Book of Truth

June 15th, 2017 Posted by Listen, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #187 // Paul Selig on The Book of Truth”

This episode explores the concepts of guides, clairvoyance, and psychic abilities – all things new to me! Today’s guest, Paul Selig, was born in New York City and received his master’s degree from Yale. A spiritual experience in 1987 left him clairvoyant and he is now considered to be one of the foremost spiritual channels. Paul offers channeled workshops internationally. He serves on the faculty of The Omega Institute, The Kripalu Center and the Esalen Institute. Also a noted playwright and educator, he served on the faculty of NYU for over 25 years. He directed the MFA in Creative Writing Program at Goddard College for many years, and he now serves on the college’s Board of Trustees. He lives in New York City where he maintains a private practice as an intuitive and conducts frequent live-stream seminars.

Paul’s latest book, The Book of Truth, he presents the second work in his acclaimed Mastery Trilogy. The Book of Truth casts your relationships–and what they reveal about you–in a dramatic and radical new light. Through a universal message of self acceptance and peace, Paul and I chat about consciousness, energy, and finding our truth.

Podcast #186 // Esther Fleece on No More Faking Fine

June 13th, 2017 Posted by Listen, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #186 // Esther Fleece on No More Faking Fine”

I’ve spent a lot of my life faking I felt fine. So today’s guest, Esther Fleece, and her new book, No More Faking Fine, struck a chord with me. Esther is a writer, speaker, and leader, among many other things. In her new book, No More Faking Fine, Esther introduces readers to the concept of lament and gives readers permission to be honest with themselves and their feelings.

As a 10-year-old on the witness stand in a courtroom filled with family on opposing sides, Esther Fleece learned to suck it up and hold it together while the world around her was falling apart. And she’s been faking fine ever since. A victim of childhood trauma and abuse, she ignored her hurting heart and channeled her energies toward extreme hustle, performance and achievement. It wasn’t until she discovered the practice of lament – a word rarely discussed in the church – that she began her journey toward healing.

In this chat, we talk all about healing, grief, and embracing painful moments.

Podcast #183 // Robert Davis on Fitter Faster

May 23rd, 2017 Posted by Listen, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #183 // Robert Davis on Fitter Faster”

Today’s sponsor is ShootAlong! Did you hear the special  episode with co-founder, Amy Tripple? Go give is a listen! For 10% off the Summer Short Course, use the code SARAH10 at check out.

I love talking about fitness and health, so today’s interview with Robert Davis is eye-opening and fun! We talk all about Robert’s new book, Fitter Faster.

I don’t have time . . . I’m too tired . . . I hate gyms . . . These are among the most common excuses for not exercising. But the truth is that getting in shape requires less time and effort than you might think.

Examining everything from pre-workout stretches to post-workout protein shakes, this science-backed book slices through fitness fads and misconceptions to reveal how you can exercise quickly and effectively. For example, is it best to exercise in the morning? Does aerobic activity burn more fat than weight lifting? You’ll also learn how to get and stay motivated, what equipment to buy (and what not to waste money on), which dietary supplements really help, and how to combat muscle soreness.

Fitter Faster explains how to:

Find the right balance between cardio, strength, and stretching – Slash workout times with high-intensity interval training – Prevent boredom – Enhance fat-burning

The accompanying Fitter Faster Plan, developed with celebrity trainer Brad Kolowich, Jr., pulls everything together. Requiring as little as 15 minutes a day, these quick workouts maximize efficiency—allowing you to reap the greatest benefit in the shortest possible time…all without ever having to set foot in a gym.

With photographs illustrating each exercise routine, this eye-opening book will forever change the way you work out—and help you get fitter faster.

Podcast #182 // Amy Tripple on Keep It Candid with ShootAlong

May 18th, 2017 Posted by Listen, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 4 thoughts on “Podcast #182 // Amy Tripple on Keep It Candid with ShootAlong”

I have a super fun and special episode for you today! Amy Tripple of ShootAlong joins me on the show to talk about how ShootAlong came about and share five tips for catching those candid images.

I love the ShootAlong message of connection and creativity. I’m feeling inspired to pick up my DSLR and get shooting! Feeling inspired, too? Join the short course and get 10% off with the code SARAH10.

Here are ShootAlong’s tips and tricks for keeping it candid:

Keep it Candid: Five Tips for Shooting Fun, Real, and Authentic Photos

Surrender your ideas of perfection

First of all, release yourself from the expectation that you are going to take “perfect” pictures. This notion can paralyze even the most knowledgeable photographers, so make it easy on yourself and let go of perfection right from the start. Is your kid wearing a dirty t-shirt? Is his hair still messy from the afternoon nap? Are toys scattered around your living room? Great! These are the details that make your images real. In 20 years, when you look back on your images, these small details will stir strong memories. Holding too tightly to perfection also ruins the moment you are attempting to capture. You may lose the special scene you are capturing if you pause to ask your child to change clothes, brush his hair or pick up her toys in the living room.

Keep the camera on the kitchen counter

Your camera is less likely to be used when it is packed away neatly in a camera case, so place it within easy reach on your kitchen counter instead. Once you’ve freed it from the shackles of being in it’s case, set a goal for using it — try taking at least 5 pictures of your family every day for one week when you are in or around your kitchen. These pictures should simply capture your everyday life. Once you have met the goal of taking 5 pictures a day for one week, try setting a similar goal to take 5 pictures every day in another room, in a space outside your house, or try putting your camera in your purse or backpack and taking 5 pictures each day of your family’s activities “on the go”.

Look for engagement

Photos which show a person fully engaged in an activity are often the most compelling. They immediately draw the viewer into the scene. The subject of the photo does not have to be active or moving to be interesting. For example, a child reading or building with bricks will beautifully illustrate the quieter side of her personality. Candids are also a great way to show the connections between people. Emotions and expressions are poignant when they are depicted in this honest fashion. Seek out natural bonds between siblings, parents and kids, friends and pets. Do not ask your subjects to look at the camera.

Shoot “through” a scene

We all have a tendency to look at the back of the camera to check our pictures as we shoot. When shooting candids, after you do an initial check to make sure your pictures are not too light or to dark, try not to check it again. In other words, do not put your camera down after getting one or two images to dwell on your accomplishment. Keep going and watch the scene unfold through the viewfinder, capturing more authentic expressions as they happen.

Use light to tell your story

When you’re taking pictures, be sure to keep an eye on what kind of light you’re working with. Open shade is ideal because it evenly lights your subject and prevents squinting. When you’re inside, be aware of where the light is coming from and try to capture your subject from a direction where catchlights (the bright reflection of light in each eye) are present.  Also, get to know your house and keep in mind which areas are best for photographs throughout the day!

Podcast #181 // Tanya Geisler on Stepping Into Your Starring Role

May 16th, 2017 Posted by Listen, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #181 // Tanya Geisler on Stepping Into Your Starring Role”

Tanya Geisler is a leadership coach, TEDx speaker and writer who has taught thousands of leaders how to step into their starring roles and own their authority in their lives, their work, and in their life’s work.

Research shows that as much as 70% of the general population has experienced what psychologists call the “Impostor Syndrome”: the suspicion that your success is somehow undeserved and that you will eventually be exposed as a fluke or a fraud.

The Impostor Complex, Tanya’s take on the condition, is chronic and impacts us all—particularly high-functioning achievers. The fear and doubt inherent in the complex confines us to a muted version of our best lives and keeps us from realizing our ideal selves. None of us is immune, and in most ways, the more successful we are, the worse it gets. Whether entrepreneur or engineer, motivational speaker or mom, ALL of us are afflicted.

Through Tanya’s coaching of leaders, New York Times bestselling authors and the best and brightest in her industry, she has established the key markers of the Imposter Complex and devised the systems people can use to confront it.

In this episode we took a deep dive into the Imposter Complex, took it apart, and examined the role the complex plays in our own life. We also discussed what it means to step into our starring role, and how to move past all the challenges that hold us back. Tanya is a total blast to speak to – I LOVED her energy and this honest chat!

Podcast #180 // Michele Cushatt on I Am

May 9th, 2017 Posted by Listen, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #180 // Michele Cushatt on I Am”

Today, more than ever, women struggle with their value. From personal appearance – to parenting – to housekeeping – to careers – they’re consistently asking themselves, am I ever enough? Author Michele Cushatt has written her new book I Am to remind women that their value isn’t found in achievements, relationships, or appearance.

At thirty-nine years old, Michele was diagnosed with squamous-cell carcinoma of the tongue. After early intervention, filled with doctor’s appointments and a surgery, Cushatt recovered and expected to never see cancer again. However, it came back, not once, but twice. Cushatt hardly recognized herself after her battle changed how she looked, spoke, ate and lived. In I Am, she shares her journey of diving deep into her soul to rediscover herself.

As someone who is always going after the next and the next and the next gold star, this talk resonated deeply with me. I hope it does with you, too!
