Hi, it’s Lisa Corduff. Welcome to the podcast where you can expect inspiring, raw, energising, and transformative conversations with people on the path of personal evolution. I’m here to really live my life, and if you are too, these conversations are just for you. I’m really glad you’re here. Enjoy. I’ve been delivering coaching, trainings, lessons, webinars, you name it, for over seven years online. And today on the podcast, you’re listening to what we’re calling a tiny training, taken from inside the vault, here at LCHQ, and we hope you enjoy it.
Hey. So, today, can we talk a little bit about intimacy and connection? Because this is something that I’ve been learning about recently is the different levels of intimacy and why humans, we’re so wired for it, but we can also resist it. And we can also take for granted that being around people or being physically touched by people, like our children, all the time, is connection or intimacy. And the fact of the matter is it’s not. Now, I’m not talking about sex, but it could be sex. I’m talking about, well, even just talking about your day with someone, even just holding hands with someone that’s not your child. Anything that creates that beautiful, warm, fuzzy feeling.
And so, it’s kind of a challenge is to try to create five opportunities for five minutes of connection, intimate connection, not just bumping into someone on the street, although that can be lovely too. Real, just sort of meaningful, being present with each other connection, and just experiment with seeing how this makes you feel. For me, it just, it raises my energy, my vibration so much. Sometimes, I can literally feel myself just getting calmer, and there’s this satisfaction when I do it with my children in a meaningful way. I have to say, any other mums of boys, the best time for this for me is when I’m saying goodnight to him. And for some reason, he just lets me in a little bit more. He’ll sometimes call me back to his room at nighttime to just be like, “Oh, Mum, you know I said it was a good day? Actually, no, it was bad because blah, blah blah.”
So, what I’m trying to do is create spaces to be open for those moments with my kids. Coming straight home from school and not just getting the washing on or talking to a friend on the phone because I find that’s a beautiful point of connection with them and just being present with them is a beautiful thing. So, find those ways in your life. Find these different types of moments and just see how good it feels. That’s your challenge.
