Top Podcasts That Make You Think

I don't know why it has taken me so long to get on the podcast train, but a couple of months ago, I started listening to them and WHOA - I have found some things that have BLOWN. MY. MIND. Since I have been so crazy about them, and I think my Facebook feed is kind of over me trying to force them to listen to them, I thought I'd come here and share a couple that I think you should start listening to right this moment. Like, do it now.

Top Podcasts for me as of June 2017

p.s. in congruence with this blog, they're going to be focused on spiritual and personal development so if you're not into that, you may not like these. 

I struggled with if I should put this one first or last, meaning save the best for last, because I absolutely love this podcast. I cannot WAIT for it to come on and it's getting ready to start a new series which is so awesome. This podcast is a combination of Law of Attraction teachings with Quantum Mechanics and how Jess Lively, the host, applies these philosophies into her life. She takes teachings that are honestly, a little over my head, and breaks them down in a practical way so that I can understand them. I love this show and have even gone over to her blog to learn more about her workshop, flow with intention. She talks a lot about living with intention, listening to your intuition, and how she does those things to create a life where she is truly happy. I would start with Quantum Living Quick Guide #1

This is very female focused, though I feel like you can learn something if you're a man too. I don't even really know how to describe this, other than she talks a lot about being a woman, motherhood, healing, guilts, etc. Just being a woman who's walking a spiritual path in this world. 

3. The Robcast

This is my other favorite. I stumbled across this blog because of The Lively Show and wow, it's almost brought me to tears. Rob Bell describes the Bible and Jesus in a way that I have never heard in a  church and honestly, it's a lot of beliefs that I already have but have never heard come from another person. It's wonderful and I would start with Alternative Wisdom; Part I

I'll be honest, I didn't want to like this one. I love yoga and consider it to be a big part of my life, but some of the big time yogis, I kind of avoid. That being said, I have REALLY enjoyed her podcast. She talks about motherhood and living like a yogi in her life. 

I'm sure you know who Liz Gilbert is, but if not, she is the author of the book, Eat, Pray, Love. In her podcast, she talks to a lot of creatives about obstacles they face in their life in terms of living out creatively. I haven't heard a new one in a while, but I do love them. 

So this one is geared towards small business owners and creative entrepreneurs. I included it though, because I enjoy the way she presents her guests. The first episode, she discusses obstacles they've face in their life, how they made the jump from whatever they were doing to their business, and all of the feelings that go into that type of move. In the second episode, she discusses the practical way they make the jump and the steps they implemented to become successful. I've actually heard a lot about the Law Of Attraction on this podcast and I believe it's where I first heard of Jess Lively. I may have heard about her through Jenna kutcher so I'm not sure. I am not including her because her podcast is very focused in business and specifically for photographers, though it's one I like as well. 

Anyway, if you only want to try one, I would suggest Jess Lively! 

Let me know if you have any you recommend as well!
