Episode 110 The Art of Allowing – Interview with Jamie Lerner

Welcome back to the Love Your Story podcast. Have you ever been in a position where you felt judged? Where you wished people would just allow you to live the life you wanted and that they’d live their life without imposing their expectations on you?

Have you ever been on the other side of that coin?

In this life we have agency and responsibility to create whatever beautiful storyline we deem best for us, but so often we feel we need to direct someone else’s direction, or we receive resistance from others who want us to move in different ways than we deem right for us.

Today we are talking about the Art of Allowing. In my interview today with Jamie Lerner, co-author of the book The Ever-Loving Essence of You, and a past well-being-therapist, we will be discussing the joys and freedom to move about the world without having judgment about what anyone else is saying or doing.

She believes that everyone is allowed to choose what is best for themselves and when we tend to what is best for our own selves and have clarity for ourselves, we care not what others have chosen for themselves. The entire point of allowing is to feel good as we flow from one loving moment to the next creating unconditional relationships along the way.

I invited Jamie Lerner on the show today because she has a couple areas of expertise that I feel are key to creating our best life story. The first is that I want her to share her thoughts and insights on the Art of Allowing.

The second, and reason she originally caught my attention is that as she works with her clients one of her favorite questions to ask is “Is your storyline working well for you?” she believes that the story we are incessantly telling is directly reflected in the life that we are living and if you change your story you will change your life. You know this is a space we live in here on the Love Your Story podcast, so I’m excited to hear her thoughts today.
