“There are no words for it. We don’t know how to describe it to our partners or our friends, or even ourselves. It just feels like this swirling chaos inside of our bodies and inside of our lives.” – Jason Miller

On today’s episode of Finding Brave, you’ll hear a conversation that’s not often shared openly. Tough times, or “dark nights” happen to everyone, but especially to business owners riding the highs and lows of entrepreneurship. To help us navigate the dark nights is someone who knows them all too well.

Jason Alan Miller, or “Jam” is the Co-Founder of Peaceful Media, the go-to digital marketing & branding agency for conscious entrepreneurs who have a deep desire to heal, love, and shift the planet and its people. You’ll hear how during his darkest times, Jason has received invaluable support from his parents, peers and people who just believe in him and help him to believe in himself. Along the way, Jason has never forgotten that he’s “ok”, and he’s continued to evolve in so many ways, including spiritually.

In this episode you’ll receive his priceless and practical tools and insights for “reemerging & rebirthing” or otherwise navigating the twisty, wrenching turns of metamorphosis.

QUOTES:

“So I don’t call it depression. I call it not listening to my soul.” [6:48]

“Around that corner of divine purpose is a lot of unknown.” [24:31]

“Every time I’ve gone into these dark nights, and there’s probably been 4 or 5 of them in the last 15 years or less, I’m constantly confronted with there’s something calling me from around the corner and I can’t see it enough to clarify it, put it into words, communicate to my spouse and to my tribe, in a way that will guide us safely and securely.” [26:12]

“Soul acceptance is willing to sit in the season of winter, because just like nature needs seasons, our bodies and our lives need seasons as well.” [28:56]

“Develop your ability to listen deeply within, because some of that advice will come at your pretty strong and it may send you down a path that’s not exactly what your soul’s asking for.” [50:29]
