Ep.142 ~ The Importance Of Leaving Home At Any Age

You’ll Never Liberate Your True Identity Until You “Leave Home” Internally

Most people move out of their parents home to start their own lives. But, for most people, all too often it’s merely a physical leaving home, not one that liberates their identity!

So today, Judith will interview Jim about why he wrote his Leaving Home Trilogy of autobiographical novels.

Jim will reveal how the first book, Worship of Hollow Gods, explores some of the many “hollow gods”  families become committed to; become addicted to.

In Jim’s second book, An Ambition To Belong, he explores the angst most adolescents experience – no longer children and not yet adult. Belonging nowhere.

Jim’s award-winning, best-selling novels added to his own freedom to be fabulous, writing about many issues that people can find off-limits or even spiritually offensive. And in that way publishing these novels was a major act of internally leaving home for Jim.

Ep.139 ~ Are You Allowed to Outshine Your Parents and Siblings?

Are you allowed to outshine your parents and/or siblings? 

Many people are held back by worry that if they succeed according to their own desires and ambitions they will feel guilty. But – guilty of what? Guilty for outshining everyone else in their family. Guilty for going after things their family may not approve of. Guilty. What about you? What have you felt guilty about?

What do you feel guilty about right now? Moving away from your family’s long time city or town? Dating or marrying outside your family’s race, religion, or any other approved of category? Making more money than anyone in your family ever even thought about? Succeeding in a career your family thinks is corrupt or even evil? There are plenty of other categories of course.

Ep.138 ~ Unconscious Contamination

Ever thought about how areas of your life can actually be contaminated — polluted by experiences and emotional associations in your early life?

In today’s episode Judith & Jim will help you dig into this as it applies to your life, your much larger life and your current fear of being fabulous. So  please give some thought to how early upbringing can twist how people think about other people’s race, religion, and other cultures. Think about how kids learn to make fun of other kids, to bully and badger them. They weren’t born that way. They learned it. And they think it’s okay. Those are the results of contamination!

So how has your life, and the way you relate to yourself, been contaminated by your early experiences?

Ep.136 ~ Our Own Hold-Backs Part 2~Jim’s Fear of Being Fabulous

Today it’s Jim’s turn to share some of his stories that demonstrate where his Fear of Being Fabulous originated.

When you listen to Jim describe a bit of his background and the early roots of his Fear Of Being Fabulous, see what comes to mind from your own early experiences where you thought you had to be humble and modest, playing down your own excellence and expertise. That playing down is what J & J call “hold-backs” which are most often unconscious until you get awakened to how they are interfering with your larger more satisfying life. And that’s what “The Double Js” are dedicated to helping you discover.

Ep. 133 ~ The Power of the Unconscious

Who are you really? And what is not the REAL you?

Many people associate the unconscious with forbidden feelings. Perhaps sexual, perhaps rageful, or anything else that’s considered forbidden. But we prefer to look at what went into your mind to help create The Fear Of Being Fabulous before you were old enough to evaluate what is actually true for you – who you really are – and what is not the real you.

That’s why J & J devote this podcast to helping you explore the power of the unconscious and how it can be controlling you without your awareness or understanding.

And The Double Js will also give you some useful tips to help you weed out unconscious prohibitions that are holding you back!

  • Practical and works!
    by Emm2372 from United States

    The difference between Jim&Judith and other career coaches is that they understand the psychological reason behind behaviors and therefore can eradicate the root problems. I had the opportunity to talk to them a few times while working at a tech company. They never talked about any high level principle or abstract concepts, but only gave practical suggestions which no one mentioned to me before. And it worked.
