Episode 219: Get in Flow by Stepping into Fear with Lindsay Sukornyk

I’m so thrilled to have my friend and fellow master-minder, Lindsay Sukornyk, back on the show! Not only is she a great coach, yoga instructor and mom, but she’s also one of the best conversationalists I know. When we talk there is never a bad conversation.

In this episode, we talk about stepping into fear and reframing it as an opportunity for growth and aliveness. Lindsay and I also discuss the impact nature has when it comes to helping you get into more of a flow state (her Alive + Awake retreats are perfect for this). Regardless, it’s about listening to the “whispers” that nudge you in the direction you’re meant to go. And generally those are the things that resonate with you and make you feel good. Don’t know about you, but I am all for more of that in my life!

I guarantee you’ll feel a little lighter after listening to the words of my unicorn friend and eager to elevate your life to the next level (perhaps in Costa Rica?).

Question Highlights:
• How did you decide to move to Costa Rica and start doing retreats and other things?
• What makes you this insane warrior going straight for the fear and straight for the opposite of what’s logical?
• How do you allow yourself to lean in, have faith and get into the flow state at any time?
• Why are we so resistant to be ourselves?
• What is most exciting for you right now?


“Listen to the whispers.”

“This way to the good stuff.”

“This whole journey for us has been one of leaping into the unknown and making it up as we go and then ultimately listening to the whispers of our souls, but also taking the actions required.”

“When we play and have fun, everything can go way faster and far more smoothly – especially when it comes to transformation.”

“Surrender to the magic that’s available when we let go of our plans and expectations.”
