Today, I'm talking to the radiant Stephanie Lin, who I met online 2 years ago. Stephanie is a certified life coach, Reiki practitioner, Fulbright Scholar, and all-around amazing woman. Her class on Spiritual Bypassing deeply affected me, and gave me support during a very difficult time in my life.
I love Stephanie's work - you can tell from just a few interactions that she is a soul filled with light, who has great aspirations to help others and make this world a better place.
During our interview*, I had the pleasure of talking to Stephanie about many subjects dear to my heart - from letting go of old patterns, to out of body experiences. Stephanie talked about:
6:00 - There is no time. How to shift into new versions of yourself in just a moment. (Yes, it's possible - the real challenge is holding on to that energetic space.)
7:00 - Separating from ancestral patterns in order to come back together with family members.
10:56 - Sometimes things get worse before they get better when we are clearing out old patterns.
13:24 - Stephanie shares her experience with Ayahuasca.
16:49 - What it's like to experience empathy in macro.
23:02 - How to set an intention to build connections with people who share the beliefs you want to incorporate into your life.
24:35 - Using the internet and cyber space as a "laboratory" where we build the self we want to be in real life.
35:14 - Stephanie shares the Buddhist practice of Bardo, and how that helps people move into a new phase of their lives.
46:05 - How to live more within the rhythms of the year.
57:02 - Letting go of conditioning that brings us pain.
One of the things that struck me most about this interview was a question Stephanie asks herself when she needs guidance:
If I really loved myself, what would I do? (Click to tweet!)
That one sent shivers up my spine and is something I've been working into my daily spiritual practice.
