Fresh Tracks With Kelly Robbins

Being the first to pave the way for others is a unique calling for many of us striving to live a life of purpose and integrating that purpose into our business. At Fresh Tracks we don't believe in building cookie-cutter businesses. As individual as each of us are, I believe you are most successful when you listen to your intuition, honor your unique gifts, and create your business your way. And that often means not doing things the way everyone else does. This podcast was created to share ideas, cultivate best practices, and bring thought leaders together to help you create fresh tracks in your life and business.

Lent and the Journey of Release
This week Kelly Robbins takes us on a Lenten Journey of Release. First, we consider what Lent is. From a metaphysical perspective, what is Lent about? Lent is meant to be a period of spiritual growth where we flex our self-discipline muscle. Traditionally this is done by praying, confessing and abstaining or fasting. Abstaining from and letting go of something in our lives. Are we holding on to things that are ready to be released? Why are we holding on to it – what is the story we’ve created behind it? There is power and healing in letting go of unsupportive stories we’ve been holding on to. Releasing what no longer serves us can change who we are at a deep level. It changes how we know and connect with Spirit and ourselves. Using the energy of Lent as a season for powerful spiritual growth, we take the time now to release physically, energetically and spiritually.

What's Love Got To Do With It?
Episode 97. In 1984, Tina Turner famously sang “What’s Love got to do with it?” Tina won two Grammy’s for the song and it is, in fact, a great question all of us can ask! What does love got to do with anything? In this Fresh Tracks episode, Kelly Robbins leads us in an exploration of love itself. Love is hard to describe. It’s not something we can see or touch, yet we feel it and recognize it when we experience it. Love is a powerful energy and in fact, Love is the very core of the Universe itself. As we struggle with different events in our lives, we can each take the time to answer the question, “What’s Love got to do with it?”  We explore some of the ways to both receive and give love, as well as simply how to recognize love itself. Each of us gives and receives love in different ways. Strengthening your skills as an expectant receiver and active giver of love are important attributes for each of us on the path to harnessing the immense spiritual power of love. And living and creating a life we love.

Are We Experiencing A Global Transformation of Consciousness?
There is radical tension and discord across the world today. At times it feels unbearable. The magnitude of the turmoil makes me believe there is something bigger going on. What if we are we living through one of Earth’s great transformations? A time that will change the course of humanity forever. In this episode of Fresh Tracks we consider what’s been termed the “Axial Age”. A global shift in the consciousness of humanity. Such a powerful shift in humanity is bringing unprecedented turmoil and unrest on a global scale. Why? Because with all change there is discord. I share an overview of the world’s great religious leaders and their role in a previous transformation in human consciousness, and then we dive into some of the identifiable characteristics of today’s shift. Ultimately, we each need to know we play a role in today’s transition to a global consciousness. From the Universe in its’ totality, to how we interact with other species on our planet, to how we view and treat each other, we are intertwined and interrelated no matter where we reside.   Show Notes: 3:45 – About the First Axial Age 6:30 – A overview of the world’s great religious founders 11:00 – The consciousness transformation happening today 14:00 – Characteristics of this great transformation in religion, the environment, ecologically and ways of Being 19:25 – What this consciousness change means on a global level 23:00 – Using this period in time to evaluate ourselves and our role in this transition 26:00 – Different alternatives to deepening to your personal transformation About Kelly Robbins Author of Trust Your Next Step: Creating the Confidence to Cut Fresh Tracks and the podcast www.FreshTrackswithKellyRobbins.com, Kelly created her first business over 20 years ago, truly embracing the entrepreneurial spirit.

Fundamentalism, the Brain, and You
I found myself yelling at “them” on the television a few weeks ago. Angry. Disturbed at "their" lack of empathy for others. I experienced a complete disgust of those “other people” as a whole. In this week’s episode of Fresh Tracks, we look at what’s going on behind this anger and the “us versus them” mentality we see across the world today. This leads us to a discussion on brain scans, sacred values, religious fundamentalism and its meaning to us. Is our brain hard-wired to default to this anger and separatism? I share results of brain research that has been done specifically on religious fundamentalism, sacred values and our willingness to fight and die for what we believe in. Why does this “us versus them” scenario develop in the first place? And what can you, as an individual do to change it? Check out this episode of Fresh Tracks and discover how to physically change your brain to experience empathy, compassion and reason. Show Notes: 5:00 – Sacred Values and the role they play in decision making 8:30 – Us versus Them on a brain scan 11:00 – Are we all One? The brains natural hardwiring and the pull and tug of us vs them thinking 13:20 – How do you justify your anger?

Let's Talk About Karen
The world is in great turmoil. A pandemic. Anger. Fear, and uncertainty permeate all corners of the globe. We are faced with a never-ending stream of difficult decisions to make. In this episode of Fresh Tracks we peek into the dynamics behind the Karen meme that has become so popular. Do you have anything in common with a white woman of privilege bullying others? Social media makes fun of the most extreme “Karen episodes”, and yet she manifests in many, less extreme situations. I believe it can be insightful to examine what role that “Karen” dynamic plays in our own lives in this episode of Fresh Tracks. I share a bit about the history of the Karen meme and what she represents in today’s world. What’s going on underneath the extreme meanness we see? Might it be worthwhile to spend time introspecting if there is some Karen in you? We also delve into the Universal Quality of more life and how to cultivate that quality even in these crazy times of upheaval. Finally, are you building your life from a place of power or forcing your way to getting what you want?   Show Notes: 3:45 – Renegotiating how we live 6:30 – Answering the question “What is mine to do?” in today’s world 9:00 – Karen and the history of white women and privilege 12:30 – Is it possible you are unknowingly being a victim? 13:45 – Look for these sneaky ways being a victim can show up 17:00 – Choosing to see opportunity in chaos 20:30 – Where to start when feeling overwhelmed. 25:50 – Are you being too hard on yourself?   About Kelly Robbins Author of Trust Your Next Step: Creating the Confidence to Cut Fresh Tracks and the podcast http://www.FreshTrackswithKellyRobbins.com, Kelly created her first business over 20 years ago, truly embracing the entrepreneurial spirit.

CORONAVIRUS: An Opportunity to Face and Conquer our Fears
In this episode of Fresh Tracks I speak with Vincent Genna about the value of using the coronavirus pandemic and the change it has brought the world for our own healing. Vincent explains why we can choose to make this an opportunity for healing and choose to be in a different, better place after the pandemic. We do this by first acknowledging that we want to change and going beyond traditional coping skills to substantive healing. Sound good in theory yet more difficult to implement? Vince shares that it’s natural for our defense mechanisms to kick-in and try to prevent our healing and he provides tips for breaking down these defense mechanisms. We also discuss the importance of eliminating beliefs that prevent our ultimate healing. Creating Fresh Tracks starts with our accepting what is and leaning into the newness in our life. Being courageous enough to connect to our pains and parent ourselves through the often overwhelming inner hurts from the past are key to creating a more fuller and ultimately happier version of you.   Show Notes: 2:45 – Coping with vs healing our Self during the pandemic 6:45 – The power behind allowing yourself to feel and release emotions 10:00 – Acknowledge that you want to create something different 15:00 – How to recognize what you genuinely believe about yourself 21:00 – What to skip when processing emotions – bypassing the long process 25:10 – What it means to reparent your inner child 30:30 – Creating a fuller version of yourself 32:00 – Removing environmental pollution in your life About Vincent Genna World-renowned Vincent Genna combines his early background as a professional actor and singer, a Master’s in Clinical Social Work and his Hospice experience helping more than 500 patients through the dying process, with his uncanny skills as a metaphysician and psychic medium.

Mina shares her story cutting Fresh Tracks and discusses how vital it is for women to not only show up in this world but pursue excellence while they are at it! Mina’s insights into how we can all find balance in our lives involves bringing out our inner athlete, even if we don’t identify as an athlete. The key lies in discovering what nourishes and empowers our inner strength and resolve. Mina believes a great way to do this is with our bodies through physical activity.

Social Gravity and Harnessing the Natural Laws of Relationships
In this week’s episode of Fresh Tracks I speak with Jason Lauritsen about Social Gravity and the Natural Laws of Relationships. We start by discussing the role intentionality plays in relationships and how that is different than manipulation. There is great power in setting an intention when building new relationships and Jason shares with us how to set intentions and give us examples of good intentions vs bad intentions. Jason shares his number one way to build strong relationships as well as the number one mistake people make when meeting others that sabotages their ability to connect in an authentic way. The truth is that relationships develop one person at a time and taking the time to choose your relationships one by one, rather than accelerating it in a mass setting, is a key to achieving your goals in business and in life. Finally Jason discusses the concept of social capital, which is the value that we have access to in our lives because of the relationships we have with others. Show Notes: 5:35 – The role intentionality plays in relationships 12:30 – Your peer group and the role in plays in your growth 16:50 – What to do if you don’t have a natural connection with people in key roles professionally 20:45 – 2 Tips for building strong relationships when you are shy 26:10 – What is social capital and how do you build it? 27:45 – Common mistakes to avoid when building intentional relationships 32:00 – How to extend social media relationships into the real world 36:00 - The impact of social gravity About Jason Lauritsen Jason Lauritsen a keynote speaker, author and advisor.

Healing from Betrayal
In episode 76 of Fresh Tracks I speak with transformational psychologist and author Deb Silber about betrayal. When we are betrayed it hits us at a very deep, core part of ourselves and shatters our trust. When experiencing a betrayal, either in your personal or professional life, it’s imperative to process and heal rather than push down the emotions and forge on. Debi shares with us the five stages of healing from betrayal as well as the value of discovering the lessons that are there to be learned when you are betrayed. Both are instrumental in growing through this experience rather than having it ruin you. A betrayal hurts so much because it is intentional. We are forced to face the fact that someone close to us put their needs above ours. Initially, survival instincts and strategies take over and we function on autopilot. In this week’s Fresh Tracks we examine why many people get stuck in survival mode rather than heal and move into the growth phases we are designed to experience. Making meaning of the experience allows you to heal, learn the lesson you are charged with learning, and become the stronger and more resilient person you are meant to be. Show Notes: 4:15 – Recognizing post-traumatic betrayal 6:45 – Taking yourself from betrayal to transformation 10:00 – Why do betrayals keeps happening? 12:45 – How betrayal often drive us towards spiritual exploration 14:45 – Why we frequently don’t heal from betrayal 18:15 – The place most women get stuck when healing from betrayal 23:15 – How to recognize if you have post-betrayal symptoms 26:45 – Are there things you can do to prevent betrayal?

Fresh Tracks Meditation
One of the most powerful truths in the way Universal Law works is you have to let of things of a lessor vibration to make room for things of a higher vibration. The releasing needs to happen before, not after, what you desire arrives. This is known as the Law of Sacrifice. For example, you quit drinking beer and eating unlimited pan pizza every night before you attain the beach body you desire. In this Fresh Tracks meditation you will easily shed the baggage that’s holding you back and release what no longer serves your highest and best good – making room for the new. Providing you with the courage and ease necessary to manifest your Fresh Tracks! Register to receive full access to the live Fresh Tracks Meditations at KellyRobbins.net/meditation

Mindfulness and the Key to Believing in Yourself
In episode 72 of Fresh Tracks I speak with mindfulness expert John Allcock. We dig deep into the role mindfulness plays in setting and achieving goals, our belief in ourselves, and how we handle failure. John shares that being mindful (aware) allows us to recognize if our thoughts are unrealistically negative – which impacts our belief in our self. Once we are aware we can then make the decision to check the thoughts out and see if they are correct and, if not, replace them with more accurate, positive beliefs and intentions. Which ultimately allow us to live a happier, fuller, and more meaningful life. Sounds great, but how do you do this you may ask? John shares techniques to train your attention so you don’t get wrapped up in distorted thinking that’s not realistic. Awareness gives us the power to realize we are choosing to listen to negative thoughts and the choice to choose positive thoughts. In this week’s show we also take a look at how we handle failure. Because if you look at failure as something to avoid you won’t set lofty goals or cut Fresh Tracks. In reality failure just means that you are trying new things. John shares that mindfulness training is the solution to all of these difficult issues. Check out this week’s show and decide for yourself. Show Notes: 4:00 – Why believing in yourself impacts the quality of the goals you set 5:50 – Tips for working your way through failure when you are in the midst of it 8:20 – The secret key to training your attention 12:00 – The art of being skilled in awareness 15:10 – An insight into how kids handle paying attention to their awareness 19:00 – You can try to pave every path or you can make some shoes…. 22:00 – The one thing you can do to avoid anxiety 23:50 – What if much of what you believe is wrong? 26:20 – How to start assessing what your beliefs are – particularly if you are unhappy About the Author: John Allcock has dedicated over 15 years to the practice and instruction of mindfulness.

Three Things You Need to Know About Yourself to Cut Fresh Tracks
In this special edition of Fresh Tracks, Kelly dives deep into both the physical and spiritual realities of creating Fresh Tracks. Kelly shares insights into both Universal Law and the human aspects of creating your life with intention, power and grace. The journey creating Fresh Tracks starts with knowing what IS possible. Not just what you think you are capable of, but the essence of what each of us is born with. Are we truly capable of manifesting instantaneously? Without struggle or strife? Or is the pain part of the expansion process? What would manifesting look like if you could completely let go of all your crap? A deep understanding of WHO you are and what you are made of allows each of us to embody the truth of what we are capable of accomplishing. In this episode we examine the nine basic traits each of us are innately born with and discuss why it’s imperative we not only understand but embrace these qualities fully in order to create our life with intention. Why it’s important to know yourself, your quirky sabotaging habits, and the lens you view incidents from are all covered in this special episode of Fresh Tracks. Finally, we discuss understanding the tools you have to work with – Universal Law. What are some common mistakes people make when working with Universal Law and how to overcome them. Finally, we dive into how to recognize why you are struggling to create your Fresh Tracks and what you can do about it.
