Raging Love Affair

Air Date: Wednesday, 4 August 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s show is talking about the ‘Raging Love Affair’ and How to Cultivate Being ‘In Love’ – Part One

This week’s show is going to dive into the unpredictable, unexplainable elements of intentional intimacy.

What makes the flame ignite and keep burning?

So often we begin to settle into a kind of familiar and comfortable routine with those we love and forget that we are the creators of intimacy, vibrancy, and sizzle. Sam will discuss how being ‘in love’ can be like lighting a candle, and another, and then another – making any relationship a beguiling and enchanting reality in your everyday life.

The 4 Love Languages introduced us to the idea that people love differently, but what happens when your love language doesn’t match up with another’s? How do you ‘up the game’ on love in your life?

It’s not as hard as you might think, it doesn’t have to be contrived, and you CAN fulfill your romantic and idealistic dreams while building a more solid foundation. But first you’ll need to get clear on what ‘Having a Raging Love Affair’ means to you.

Tap into your capacity and desire to bring love to your relationships with unexpected passion, captivating the heart in a way that makes your everyday feel extraordinary.

This week’s show offers you another way to think and BE in relationship as you learn new ways to light the fire that makes your soul smolder.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘Being in LOVE’, to further the conversation. Go to samparrotto.com to submit your questions for this week’s conversation.

You won’t want to miss being an ‘ON AIR’ participant of Expedition Self. Sam will provide real insight, understanding and offer an opportunity to connect a new way of thinking to YOUR way of thinking.

Each week Sam discusses a different and highly accessible slice of building a stronger, deeper relationship with the inner Self so that YOU have the tools to become more and more whole.

Random Stuff of LIFE

Air Date: Wednesday, 21 July 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

During this week’s show, Sam’s going to touch on lots of the seemingly disconnected parts of LIFE and highlight the consciousness waiting to be revealed in each. Bringing all of these parts of life together in one conversation renders a more realistic lens through which we can more deeply associate within the Self. It will also cause you to see where your ‘flashlight’ may be pointing outward – lessening your power to creatively impact your life.

People often don’t notice patterns because they think about life situationally, and then justify and rationalize the outcomes because they seem discrete and unrelated. Intention and being able to truly SEE what’s happening inside of LIFE happening, can generate more freedom and open up our capacity to BE – more fully ourselves.

We’ll touch on:

How you force yourself to do things you think you have to get done. What you do when you get annoyed with people. How you handle frustration, disappointment, aggravation.

Empathy.

How you stay stuck in things you’re not so happy with. How you handle money. The way you compartmentalize as a method of coping with overwhelm.

Being.

Personal Responsibility.

Wanting more from people than you get. Your relationship with your body.

How you find the essence of who you are.

Gratitude.

Does it even matter if you have the life you want? Where you accept low energy and why.

Loss.

Allowing your kids to grow up. Healing relationships with parents.

Well… you get the idea.

If you have an area of life where you’re experiencing less than you’d like and want to get a better sense of how to navigate a self-development mindset, this is a great opportunity to gain a bit of custom insight.

Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE. Ask your questions. Share your experiences. Go to samparrotto.com to submit your questions for this week’s conversation.

Growing UP – Adulting & What it Means to Mature

Air Date: Wednesday, 14 July 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s show is about Growing UP, Adulting & What it Means to Mature.

What can we understand better about healthy, GROWING UP in a way that also enables us to be capable, prepared, and happy adults? At what point did you decide you could take care of yourself and all of your needs? And what does it really mean to mature?

This week Sam will talk about growing up ‘too fast’ and how being thrust into dealing with thoughts and feelings before we’re ready disrupts our whole development process. Whether it’s feeling responsible for adults’ emotions or needing to contribute to financial needs, it’s not uncommon for these elements of growing up to seem entirely normal while we don’t see the real impact on a person’s future BEING.

During the show, you’ll explore the need to be taken care of and how adulting produces transformation within these places while simultaneously re-establishing a more solid foundation for everyday living. And beyond that, you’ll look at the elements of emotional maturity, how to think about BEING in life with more room for others’ differences, and how to heal and relate to your ‘growing up’ process with empathy and appreciation.

This is an unexpected opportunity to appreciate how YOU came to be YOU.

It provides you with another way to think about your growth process and offers you a chance to relate to the process of growing up from a more gentle, understanding perspective.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘Growing UP’, to further the conversation.

Celebrating Milestones

Air Date: Wednesday, 23 June 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

Milestones, celebrations, honoring achievements, just another moment on the journey? Yes, they are ‘just’ another moment – but they are also essential to ‘name’ because they provide us with the necessary feedback for knowing where, when, and how to move forward.

It’s not uncommon to keep pushing the Self to get to the next step without stopping and really acknowledging the effort and learning that occurred to arrive, HERE.

And it doesn’t stop there. How does the Self process one of these big moments and ensure the WHOLE Self is getting credit? So often, the active, ‘make-something-happen’ doer aspects of Self are haled for their victory, forgetting the background characters who actually came together to triumph.

In this week’s show, Sam will talk about Expedition’s Self recent milestones, how she got there, how long it took and why. She’ll also explore ways to relate and perceive these accomplishments as both ‘more and less’ than they are in the self-development process.

Ego, the search for self-value, self-thrashing, and invalidation will surely find their way into the conversation. But our discussion will also cover the need for dreaming, finding passion, planning, managing the beginning, middle and the end, staying inspired and motivated.

This is an intriguing opportunity to celebrate and make use of your milestones and accomplishments as part of your commitment to BEING. It provides another facet of the ‘how’ associated with going inside, seeking consciousness, and being at the source of your own transformation.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘Celebrating Milestones’, to further the conversation.

Transitions & Change

Air Date: Wednesday, 16 June 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s topic is, Transitions & Change.

There isn’t a moment when we’re not moving away from or towards a transition in our lives. While most of us like to feel as if we’re progressing, our psyche has an equal need to be comfortable and secure. This often results in a kind of ‘push-pull’ as we navigate this experience.

This week, Sam will talk about the many kinds of transitions and the impact they may have on your ability to not only maneuver through them but maximize the growth opportunity while in them.

You’ll also have an opportunity to think about the role of change in your everyday and future plans, to identify the aspects inside of the Self that may go unacknowledged, and to recognize the power of stepping towards your transitions with a more conscious mind.

This is an opportunity to gain clarity about: transitions you’ve managed in your past, the role of self-awareness when progressing through life, and the way you relate with change in general.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘TRANSITIONS & CHANGE’, to further the conversation.

Guilt - See it for what it really is!

Guilt - See it for what it really is!

Guilt – See it for what it really is!

Air Date: Wednesday, 9 June 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s topic is, Guilt – See it for what it really is!

We’ve all felt guilt and likely still carry it around with us. But what exactly is GUILT and what is it blocking us from BEING with ‘in’ ourselves?

In this week’s show, we’re looking underneath how we commonly think about guilt and instead link the experiential feeling with the actual internal dynamic that’s normally concealed from our conscious awareness.

We can’t deny that guilt is an energy drain, it interferes with our fullest expression in life, and it’s often used as the justification for why we can’t handle hearing truths that are important for our internal process.

So why is guilt such a perpetual aspect of our inner world? Is it possible we get some sense of personal validation from it?

This conversation will lead listeners to discuss the role forgiveness plays in working through guilt, and it might even prompt listeners to mend some ‘guilt moments’, and reconsider the place they occupy in their sense of Self.

This is an opportunity to be more thoughtful with your relationship with guilt, to ‘try on’ that guilt is actually a ‘signpost’ for going deeper within yourself, and gently depose it so it stops having the power to drag you down.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘GUILT’, to further the conversation.

What’s So Tough About Going Inside

Air Date: Wednesday, 2 June 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

While we’re all trying to do the best we can at life, it seems the path to meaningfully getting to know and build relationship with the Self is the last one most people will choose. Why is this? What causes us to miss being able to make contact with the most accessible ‘wellspring’ for creating a life that’s constantly transforming us, providing a basis to become MORE.

Sam will explore the way we experience the oppressive nature of ‘LIFE’ and what happens when we overlook the effect of believing we are overpowered. The ensuing ‘victim thinking’ lurks around most corners, tempting us to presume that we aren’t the source of our entire journey and the unplanned learning that results from it.

When we focus on BEING, we can operate more fully from the interior of ourselves, and this then allows us to see the drama of our everyday from an entirely different vantage point. We are also able to detach from the urge to react and instead bring a more thoughtful and conscious intention to each and every interaction and choice.

This is a profound opportunity to take a closer look at your how you engage in your own self development process, consider ways of being that sidetrack your desire to transform, and see the POWER of BEING as something more tangible in your life.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘LOVE’, to further the conversation.

The Idea of Love

The Idea of Love

The Idea of Love

Air Date: Wednesday, 19 May 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

LOVE is not conditional. It’s present in each and every heart-touched crevasse, human interaction, and unpredictable moment of life.

But for most of us we see love through the lens of whether something feels loving or NOT. Because we connect with the events of life as if they either are or are not loving, and then react from that conclusion, it causes us to have a qualified and limited understanding of the deeper workings, at play.

This week, Sam will explore the idea that all of that which exists is LOVE. And by recognizing this intrinsic quality in all circumstances, it allows us to lean in and cause more consciousness, connection and relationship with all of life, all people we share the planet with, and the possibility for evolving together.

You’ll have an opportunity to see how defensiveness and self-protection are simply crusty wrappings used to avoid the making of contact with the possibility of love. Beyond that, we’ll sort out the difference between acting as if we are loving AND walking in life as LOVE which leads us to be more engaged and powerful, WARRIORS OF THE HEART.

This is a profound opportunity to take a closer look at you how you relate to LOVE, act upon LOVE, and see LOVE as something attached to behavior rather than BEING.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your ideas about ‘LOVE’, to further the conversation.

Fabulous, FRIENDSHIP!

Air Date: Wednesday, 12 May 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s topic is, Fabulous, FRIENDSHIP!

In this unpredictable, uncontrollable life, friendship can make all the difference in how we experience the joys and difficulties of BEING.

A friend can share in the mundane and everyday moments – they can help us see ourselves more clearly, bring beneficial opportunities to our doorstep, and cause us to learn and experience new things we never would’ve chosen to do alone. In truth, in the realm of the many relationships we encounter, a friend is perhaps the most long-lasting and life enriching.

Have you ever wondered why someone is your friend or why they aren’t? Have you thought about your expectations and what you give of yourself to get them met? And how do you change and mature inside of a friendship when your needs and way of being are constantly evolving? Sam will help you think about these questions for yourself by going inside and connecting the way you befriend yourself with the way you befriend others.

In this week’s show, we’re going to discuss some of the essential elements of building a lasting, sustainable friendship. We’ll explore what causes friendship to go sideways, how you can become more skilled at BEING with a friend, and how to zero in on these ‘fateful connection’ in a more conscious, intentional way.

This is a sweet opportunity to take a closer look at your how you value, build, and flourish through friendship. Join us and learn how to nurture your friend relationships – more deeply.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on ‘FRIENDSHIP’, to further the conversation.

Cuddle Up with the ‘Stuff You Wish You Didn’t Feel’

Air Date: Wednesday, 5 May 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s topic is, Cuddle Up with the ‘Stuff You Wish You Didn’t Feel’

Jealousy, resentment, contempt, disapproval … what in the heck do we do with all these undesirable feelings and thoughts when we’re trying to be a warmhearted and open person?

When we shy away from the traits and qualities that seem unloving or in some way unacceptable or selfish, it’s the same as telling ourselves, “We’re not lovable”.

Most of us know that if we are to truly embrace what it means to ‘be human’ then we must celebrate the WHOLE of who we are – loving the Self is at the hub of loving ALL of the diverse slices of life.

Beyond that, when we can’t BE with these unwanted parts of the Self, we’re limiting access to our natural born talents, our unique expression in the world and ultimately, our sense of peace and personal fulfillment.

This week we’re going to blow this idea of unbearable inner feelings and experiences wide open by pinpointing how they came to be placed on the ‘blacklist’ of the Self to begin with. Sam will help you peel the layers back, one by one, in the hopes that you’ll uncover a previously unseen connection with one of these insufferable aspects of the Self.

This is a sweet opportunity to take a closer look at your how you learn to value YOU and stop depriving yourself of the abundance that can come from empowering more of these unwelcome feelings.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on the ‘STUFF you WISH you DIDN’T FEEL’, to further the conversation.
