062: Doing Less, Living Cyclically + Experiencing More “Yum” With Kate Northrup
In our culture, we tend to think of “success” as linear, and we measure it by “more” — more money, more stuff, bigger numbers, more followers, more work.
But when we look at the natural world, we don’t see linearity anywhere. It’s ALL seasons and cycles. Rest + work. Growing + birthing. Sowing + harvest.
So … why do we insist on running our lives by a measurement that is SO out of sync with our bodies, our souls, and literally all of nature and reality?
And why are we surprised that we’re stressed, burned out, and that our creative, sensual, and erotic energy is dried up?
If you’ve done all the mindset work — the affirmations, the mantras, the positive thinking — and you still find yourself encountering the same struggles and roadblocks when it comes to work, money, and rest — then this episode is for you.
Today’s episode with Kate Northrup is going to challenge and upend EVERYTHING you thought you knew about success, satisfaction, and how to get what you truly desire.
This is the perfect time to have Kate on the show, because we are in a season of huge change here at Desire on Fire, where we’ve been confronted again and again with what we thought “should” be happening vs. what is actually happening and what wants to be moving through us.
What happens when we let go of control, drop deeply into our bodies, allow the flow, honor the cyclical nature of reality, and actually … do less?
Oh how you’re going to LOVE this refreshing, vital conversation with the incomparable Kate Northrup!
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- What the patriarchal model is missing, and why it’s time to let it go
- Why you might want to reconsider goal-setting
- The lie we believe about finances and fulfillment — and what we need to embrace instead
- How Kate approaches marriage, sex, and eroticism as a highly amibitious, successful woman (this one might surprise you)
- Why there is no direct relationship between our numbers (money, followers, clients, etc.) and our impact — and how this can free us up (this insight was huge for us)
