You know that energy of water spinning when you stir water in a bucket? You know the way it pulls everything towards it, the center stay the center and the focus of energy pulls everything to the middle. Well what if the present moment is like that and all we need to do is focus so much on this moment that everything can be drawn towards this cente…

I haven't made one of these Podcasts for a long time. I started doing Standup Comedy and my attention has been there but I want to start posting these ideas/brain dumps again as I feel like its important to share anything that could potentially be positive for even one person out there. The analogy of Surfing in relation to life I think is a good o…
 
2019 was my most honest year and then I realised I still was not honest in intimate relationships.I thought I could not feel free in a Monogamous relationship and then while in a relationship a couple months ago I noticed a massive shift in me and I noticed that when I was more honest than I had ever been in a relationship that the feeling of freed…
 
We have never actually had certainty in life and we never will except its just more obvious now than before. We have never had a guarantee that the sun will rise each day or that we will even wake up today, but we just take it for granted. Maybe nature needs to recover just like a muscle needs to recover after a workout. Maybe we should not choose …
 
"Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down." ( author unknown) We can always find light in every area of darkness although we can not remove darkness from a room we can only fill it with light. Its similar in life when…
 
You know how it can be uncomfortable waiting at a bus stop or at an airport.......and you know how there seems to be chaos when you throw a rock in the water until it settles again ........ ........ Well maybe when we are feeling uncomfortable in a life transition such as between jobs or any other uncertain period, maybe then we have to focus on ou…
 
On today's podcast I offer the possibility of using Logic as a Spiritual practice. When we get used to incorporating “Spiritual” practices into our life such as meditation, visualization etc it becomes easy to rule out using basic techniques such as Logically thinking about our exact current situation in this very moment and often when we do this w…
 
In this podcast my girlfriend Linsy joins me to share a valuable and easily actionable technique to implement into our visualization/meditation practice. Before meditating together one morning this week Linsy asked me about my practice and I described how I spend a couple minutes before or after meditating visualizing goals such as a successful pod…
 
What if maybe setbacks are a necessary part of any process whether that be a Fitness plan, a new healthy eating plan, a spiritual journey where we feel like we are going backwards when we feel old patterns arising or maybe setbacks in career form. In this podcast I give the analogy of climbing Mt Everest because when climbing a mountain with this a…
 
If you are anything like me you have definitely been overwhelmed at some point when trying to decide what not to listen to and what not to read but when you hear "your" truth or read "your" truth its instantly recognizable, more like a remembering. Please leave a review and subscribe if you enjoy it :-) Feel free to email any comments to iantdowlin…
 
Maybe when we don't know whats next or what we should be or even who we think we are............. maybe we open up the opportunity to real magic and synchronicity because we give over control to the Universe or whatever you want to call it to provide us with our next opportunity. Im not saying to stay still and take no action, quite the opposite bu…
 
If you like to create but get impatient waiting for the creative juices to flow there is some practical steps we can take to jump start the flow. What if all the inspiration we are waiting for is also waiting for us and all we have to do is put pen to paper or paint brush to canvas or voice to record and do that routinely and after we clear the min…
 
In times of inner uncertainty we can often look to certain examples in nature to lead us on our path of decision making. For example when we plant a garden of vegetables we trust that if we plant the seeds and nourish the soil and care for it in the way we know how then eventually the vegetables will pop out of the ground even if it seems like noth…
 
There is so much information available on whats healthy and whats not and the science changes all the time. I recently went home to Ireland to attend my cousins wedding and at the wedding I had the pleasure of spending time with my Grandmother & Grandfather who are both 91 years old. I am very inspired by them and they are both a vision of health f…
 
We are very limited in our English language when it comes to our feelings and emotions. We are either good or not good, happy or depressed. If we had more words for different feelings then would we feel more feelings? The moon lifts the ocean twice each day in what we call tide.........and we are made up of 70% water so doesn't it make sense that w…
 
I think Its so exciting for the world how spiritual practices such as Yoga and Meditation are after becoming completely mainstream and I think its awesome that its now normal to have a pro active spiritual ritual in daily life like Meditation or Yoga or whatever it is for you. As we work on our own self awareness or we suddenly encounter increased …
 
So often we look back at so called failures and regret the path we took which led us there but that path was the right path at that time. Recently my friend and his girlfriend were took a detour to avoid Forrest fires on the East coast of Australia only to be told by officials to turn back and go a different way which added 4 hours to their drive. …
 
Often when starting something new such as meditation we hear people on social media or famous people boast about how they meditate 30 minutes each day or 1 hour each day but the reality is that its difficult to start meditation just like its difficult to start a new gym programme. Instead of trying to do 30 mins meditation and giving up after 5 min…
 
In this episode I share a famous story about a Mexican fisherman and a rich American business man which I read often to put things back in perspective in my life. Often we are chasing a life which we don't actually want or need as we haven't spent the time to think "How do I want to spend my time"? Often the things we want to spend our time on are …
 
We feel like we go from here to there and then to the next place but what if our intentions, vision and desires bring opportunities into this moment and then we take action here now in this moment? Wouldn't it be less stressful if we knew we only had to make one choice at a time and take one action step at a time?--- Send in a voice message: https:…
 
When we drive using Google maps we free up our mind to enjoy the drive and listen to music or audio books etc, maybe we can trust the Universe the same way and be more present knowing that we don't need to plan each next turn in life--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ian-dowling/message
 
Sometimes when we feel like we need to change something or move to a new town or achieve more, sometimes thats the best time to just try and give more value in our current situation--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ian-dowling/message
 
Whether in Sport or Business if we really want to improve then we need our competition too be improving to help push us, isn't that really what healthy competition is ? Its probably important to remind ourselves that when we see our competitors succeed and remember they are not usually enemies but someone who helps us grow.--- Send in a voice messa…
 
A bit of a light bulb for me this year was realising that a lot of my "failures" in life have not been because I was lazy or because i didn't take massive action but because I didn't take smaller more consistent action. Whether you believe in Hustle & Grind or Law of attraction and allowing, we can't avoid that we experience the world in a way wher…
 
We speak the words of our language without even hearing them most of the time and we forget some of the powerful messages. Often when I speak to my partner who is a Portuguese speaker from Brazil I get reminded of this when she translates a phrase from Portuguese to English for me. Like when we say "Christmas is coming" or "The Weekend is coming" b…
 
We can learn a lot about life from Analogies and using an analogy of going to the Cinema we can notice how being completely involved or focused on any one activity regardless of what that activity is seems to bring us to that place of being "In the Zone " or "Present" or how ever you like to describe it. That magic feeling where everything clicks i…
 
" The Law of Attraction " is one of those phrases that seems to have become famous through the book and the movie " The Secret " and just like anything famous it gets haters and followers. I thought Id talk about it while in traffic today and give an analogy to try explain one way of thinking about " The Law of Attraction".--- Send in a voice messa…
 
We often feel "Not smart enough" but even the smartest Scientist on the planet doesn't know why we exist or where we came from or what happens when we die, so really we are all on a level playing field. Maybe :-) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ian-dowling/message
 
Its easy to get tricked into believing that discipline means making ourselves do things we hate but when we find something we enjoy the discipline involves " not doing things" which will waste our time or take away from what we love doing.The discipline in healthy eating usually is in " not eating " crap food, the discipline in getting up early is …
 
In 2013 I quit my job with a good salary & company car in Brisbane and moved back to live next to the beach in Burleigh heads and become a Personal Trainer. A couple of months down the track I realised I didn't have enough money saved to keep going and got to my last $200. I made a call to a past boss in the Exploration Drilling industry. This star…
 
We seem to process all of our thoughts in linear form, word vy word, picture by picture, so do you think it makes sense that when processing any loss it takes time as our mind tries see the past and visualise the future one word at a time and one picture at a time?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ian-dowling/message…
 
This thinking out loud episode is about how all the magic seems to happen in the space or the silence or the gap between action. For example in the action of exercising we don't make ourselves fitter, faster and stronger but we actually damage out muscles and then when we stop and rest ....thats when the magic happens.--- Send in a voice message: h…
