Lira Kay is a true master of helping purpose-driven professionals break through creative blocks and make a meaningful impact. All of us encounter creative blocks sometimes, whether in business, life, love, or creative passions. Breaking through those blocks or chains can feel like a struggle, because doing so involves confronting our own fears. We discuss the tools that can help, including developing a new clarity in seeing yourself by identifying your archetype and element, and then understanding your shadow side. Today, she’s here to help you let go of your old, limited self and share your true gifts with the world.

  • [08:26] - What does Lira do when she’s coaching someone and something from the past comes up? The key, she explains, is to not avoid it but to actually look at it non-judgmentally. She also reveals that she has her clients set a date for healing.

  • [37:11] - Orion talks about a book by her husband, Stephan Spencer: Google Power Search.
