About Today’s Show

Hello, Lisa, and welcome to the Stellar Life Podcast. Thank you so much for being here. It’s an honor and a pleasure to have you here with us.

Thank you so much. I’m excited to be here.

Thank you. Before we start, I would like to know how you discovered your passion and what you do. Do you still have the same passion as when you started?

I love that question. My passion started long before I did what I’m doing now. I went to college. I was a finance major, and that is not my passion. Then, after a few years in the workforce, I thought, this isn’t it. I decided to become a psychologist. I got a master’s and a doctorate in psychology. I just really loved talking to people, hearing people’s stories, helping them.

About ten years after I got my doctorate, something was still missing from me. I went back to school again and got my coaching certificate. I thought I was just going to add coaching to my psychology practice, but I ended up loving coaching so much that that’s all I do now. I think I’m more passionate about it now than even when I started because I see just the benefit for people. I love the empowering aspect of it. I believe in therapy, too. It’s just for me. I like doing coaching better. Watching people grow and step into their power, for lack of a better word, and their confidence, it’s unbelievable. I feel very lucky to do what I do.

I hear you. Every time I coach, and someone’s getting a breakthrough, it makes me feel like there’s a reason for my being here. It’s almost like, okay, this is why I’m here. This is a part of my purpose here on the planet and it feels really good.


What is the difference between coaching and being a psychologist?

I get asked this all the time. The big difference is that therapy often focuses on traumatic incidents from our past, whether severely traumatic—everyone receives it differently—mildly traumatic, and how that influences how we show up today. Coaching taps into our past, but we really don’t stay there. Coaching is all about moving forward. Therapy—and there’s a variety of therapeutic models—typically focuses on processing pain and situations from our past. That’s the short answer.

Can one move forward without dealing with old traumas?

It’s hard. You can do things that are moving forward, for sure, but what happens often if we don’t really face our life, how we feel, and our experiences, if we don’t really face them and accept them, they can really drain us. Yes, we see people being successful and moving forward with their lives but I think many of them would say, “I’m exhausted. I feel drained.”

I’ve been doing a lot of work this year on myself. In my life, I went to hundreds and hundreds of seminars. I’ve been in Tony Robbins, so many seminars that are on the grand scale. That’s not one-on-one. This year, I did more private work and I did it through spinal network analysis which is like energetic chiropractic. Also, I got one-on-one on a weekly basis, and also went through rebirthing.


I feel like I’m cleaner in a way. I’m happier. I’m lighter. Everything you see from the outside is a reflection of your inside. This whole COVID-19 time, for me, and the outside stressors, and also spending a lot of time in Israel, my home country—now the US is my home country, but I grew up in Israel and saw what’s going on there—it’s pretty forceful. All the COVID-19 loss and the lockdowns and everything just brought something from the inside like an old trauma.

I couldn’t put my finger on it, but all the old stuff just became more highlighted, more in HD. I had to clean that. I think this is a blessing, that I had to clean that. Before we started talking, you told me that a lot of people are coming to you for help, for dealing with all those stressors. “What do people come to you with, in this period of time?”

A lot of what you’re talking about, this time that people sit and sit with their feelings and sit with their thoughts but I think it also is a time that people just started to say, the way I was living wasn’t working. COVID gave them this rare opportunity to say, how do I want to live going forward? A lot of people have said to me, there’s no balance in my life. I’m exhausted. I’m stressed all the time. I’m not with my family as much as I want. I don’t feel the joy that I want to feel. A lot of it, they can point to external things but also, internally, what’s holding us back internally.

It’s been a scary and overwhelming time but also a great opportunity for all of us to say, “What do I really want out of my life?” Life is short. It’s fragile. What do I want to do with it and figure it out, kind of what you said? You used the word cleansing or cleaning out. It’s time. We’re ready to do it as a world, I hope, as a society. Let’s find our joy and our happiness. What else do we have?

Work-life balance is not for the faint of heart but having determination goes a long way.

Right. When people come to you, what do they struggle with the most?

People struggle withI’m sure some other countries struggle with this as wellAmericans have this very work, work, work, we have to work. We have to make more money. More, more, more.

Work, work, work, work, work—we even sing songs about it.

Right. It’s true. We’re nuts about that. What I’m seeing is a lot of people say, I put all of my energy into work. Although many people get value from that, they say something’s missing. I’m not having the time I want to spend with people that I love. I’m seeing my life flash before my eyes and not doing the things that I wanted to do and not finding meaning in the things that I want to do. It is a little interesting because there are some studies that have come out in the States that about 40% of American workers are thinking of leaving their jobs to find jobs that are more meaningful to them.

That’s beautiful.

It is. It is but it’s scary for employers.

Of course, it’s scary for them. It’s scary for everyone. 

It is. It could really dramatically shake up our workforce maybe in a positive way. What I’m hearing people say is, if I can’t find the external, at least, the harmony that I want in my life, I’ll leave. That makes sense. Also, though, that I push people, and you get this because you’ve done this work is let’s do the internal work, too, because that internal work can actually sometimes make it so that the external piece isn’t so much of a factor anymore.

What you described for me sounds like we live in this—I hope I say the word right—discombobulated puzzle.


People fit in places that they shouldn’t fit in. A person that likes systems shouldn’t be in a position where there are no systems involved. People do it just because they need the money. They are comfortable. They are inside their comfort zone. They don’t want to step out. They need to work, work, work. There are conditions so now there is this almost awakening. When you build a puzzle, it’s going to get messy again and the pieces are good. It looks like it’s going to be all apart but if this is really going to happen, I think the puzzle is going to be more harmonious and more beautiful coming together.

I hope so. Absolutely. I think that’s what people are seeking, that harmonious lives. 

Brendon Burchard said that at the end of your life, you’re going to look back and you’re not going to think about the money that you made or the houses that you have. It’s who I love and who loves me. At the end of the day, this is what it is—human connections. We are social animals. What did I give? What did I get on a spiritual heart level? This is what we’re going to leave with, not with all our money. I mean, maybe the next generations will know our names but who cares?

Exactly. Who cares?

Some people are living their whole lives just to have a legacy and in the meantime, they forget about their lives.

Like they’re not living in the moment, they’re living for that future piece. Right there, they’re not in the moment. They’re losing all of the moment.

What do you do to bring people to the moment, to their heart, to healing?

The first thing is really helping people be aware of how they’re showing up in the world. Why am I reacting that way? Why do I feel that way? What do I feel? Where did that feeling come from? What am I saying to myself? Like really solid awareness. Often, people aren’t aware that they’re just going through the motions. They’re just on that treadmill of life, going through the motions, and they’re not aware of why they’re doing what they’re doing. Helping them have that awareness. Once you have awareness, then you can choose who you are, what you want to do, who you want to be in your life.

When you have a strong sense of self-awareness, you begin to see the whys and the hows of life. Click To Tweet

When we’re not coming from choice, we’re coming from a pure reaction, nothing great ever comes from that, and we’re not fully in ownership of our own lives. Once people get to that place where they understand they always have a choice, then there’s the power. Then they say, okay, I can choose how to look at this. I can choose how to feel about this. I can choose how to show up. I’m in choice.

I’ve studied rapid transformation therapy which is a type of hypnosis and it’s by a wonderful woman named Marisa Peer. She’s really good at helping people through her methodology. She said that knowledge is power. Awareness is power. Why is it that the moment that we are aware of something, we can get a breakthrough? Can we be aware and still get back in the same patterns?

Yes. That’s a great question. This is why I love coaching so much because it’s not just awareness. Awareness is the first step. Action is next. Why is awareness so important because if we don’t know why we’re doing what we’re doing and if we’re not really understanding, getting conscious about it, then we’re in a default space, in a reaction space. Once we’re aware of it, that’s really where the power lies because the awareness says, I can look at anything and not be afraid of it. I’m facing it because I’m aware. But then, what do I want to do about it which is one of the biggest questions I ask my clients. Okay, you just had this huge awareness. What do you want to do with it? There’s awareness.

Usually, it’s nothing. What’s up girl? I got the awareness. Thank you. I feel great about myself. Thank you.

Thanks for coming. Here’s your tag. Bye-bye. The push is, the awareness is fantastic and it’s even more fantastic when you say, “Okay, now that I’m aware of it”—let’s just say when I feel like I’m really tired—”I’m going to take a five-minute break so that I don’t yell at my kids.” Or “I’m going to drink a glass of water because I feel hydrated and nourished or take a walk.” Now, two of the action steps come in. Once you have awareness and action together, you can’t be stopped from there.

I get it. I really relate to, when I’m tired, take a break because I’ve been non-stop especially with this move from Israel to Florida. I’ve been non-stop. I have a little toddler. I have my mother with me and she doesn’t speak English. I need to take care of her needs as well. It’s been like, go, go, go. Then I was hosting this weekend. My husband’s mother and father came in. It was wonderful. It was so good to see them and it just felt like I was just jetlagged, drained, being pulled in many directions, trying to be the perfect hostess, the perfect mom, the perfect wife, the perfect daughter. I think the day before yesterday, it was almost like I was drunk. I was so tired. I could hardly speak.

When you’re somebody like me, in this situation, what do you do? I have such a high expectation of myself. I really want everybody to be fed and well-fed. It needs to be perfect. I’m a little bit of a perfectionist and I want to be the best of this and the best of that. It’s almost like my brain is working so much faster than my body.

Yes. Exactly. Some questions around the awareness pieces, why do things have to be perfect? What are you saying to yourself about not having them perfect? What would it look like to do this a little less perfect and still enjoy it? These would be some of the awareness questions I’d ask—what if and why questions. What would it look like to stop for a half-hour and just take a break, or go outside for a quick walk, or ask your husband to take over some things, any of those external pieces? But the most important part is understanding why one feels the need to have it perfect or have it just so.

Because I want people to love me and think that I’m the best person ever.

What would happen if they don’t?

No, it cannot happen.

See? That’s really where, for a lot of us, our fear of what if. What if they don’t see me as the best person ever? What if they don’t love me? Then it’s a catastrophe. But, two things. One, it’s unlikely that they would think this at all, and two, it’s not a catastrophe. You’d survive it. You don’t want it, but you’d survive it.

When you do what you love, the rest will follow.


Once we know we’d survive it, then okay, what do I want to do with that?

Wait. The thought process is what if and what is the worst-case scenario?

And then going there, which is the awareness piece, going to that worst-case scenario and then asking yourself, how likely is it? It’s very unlikely that all those people aren’t going to love you anymore. Then once you’ve asked yourself how likely it is and it’s not likely, okay. Then ask yourself, let’s just say, what if the worst-case scenario happens? What will I do? Do you know what you’ll do? You’ll survive.

I believe so. It reminds me of Byron Katie’s questions. Are you aware of her work?

I’ve read some of her stuff but I’m not familiar with her specific questions.

Question number one, when you have a thought like that is, is this true? Is this thought true? Can you absolutely know that it’s true? Is this true? Yeah, 100%. Then, can you absolutely know that it’s true? Actually, maybe not. I cannot absolutely know. Then, how would you react—what happens—when you believe that thought? Then when I believe that thought, then who am I? Who would you be without that thought? I would be more calm, happy, joyful, maybe a better person to others.

Then there is a turnaround. If I thought somebody doesn’t like me, is this true? Can I absolutely know that it’s true? What happens if I believe that? What do I feel in my body? Then, if I don’t have this thought, that person doesn’t like me, what does it feel like? Then you can turn it around, I don’t like them. Maybe that’s the core of it. Those are powerful questions.

I love those. They’re huge. Because often, I see this with my clients all the time. My clients are telling themselves a story that’s not true. They live in that story and then they wonder why they’re miserable. Well, you’re living in a story that isn’t true.

I won an award for storytelling. Seriously, you know how many stories I tell myself every day?

A lot?

Really. For a state speaking, I won an award for the best storyteller. I guess I’m so good at storytelling. I guess I tell myself a lot of stories that are very interesting and have many heroes and villains but are not always true.

They’re not always true and that’s the part. Then if you hold onto them as truth when they’re not, you drain yourself. You’re exhausted.

I did an Akashic reading and one of the symbols that showed up is the phoenix. It’s like I go and I burn really high and then I crash. I rebuild again and then I burn again. Then I get into that cycle where they just say this, just give it to the phoenix. Give it to that imaginary totem animal and just let her do the whole burning cycle because it’s not good in our bodies to have all these emotions, crash, and go up again, and have this crescendo, go up and down, up and down.

Too many of us live way in the future when the answers present themselves best when you live in the moment. Click To Tweet

Can you give me and our listeners some tips on how to be more in balance and not have those extremes? For me, sometimes I’ll do a lot of work on myself and then I hear an awful story in the news and I go deeper. I see beyond the news. I don’t go only to mainstream media. I’m almost like a journalist at heart. I see some things that are not good and it really affects me. What can I do to be less triggered and more in harmony besides just live on an island which will help me a lot?

You can see I’ve contemplated that many times over the last few years. I will say I am a news junkie as well. I’m the same way. I like to verify my stories and look at other sources. Then I will ask myself this question, why am I upset right now? What am I saying to myself about it? What can I control—usually, not much except my own reaction—and what do I want to do about it?

Let’s say I read this story about the environment. There’s a lot of really scary stories, the environment, blah, blah, blah, and animals are dying—that always gets me. Then I read more stories and I feel all these feelings. I want to ask myself stuff like, what’s happening for me? I’m afraid. I’m afraid of animals dying, of our planet not being sustainable in the long run. I’m afraid for myself. I’m afraid for my family.

Then I say to myself—and this is really important—it’s okay to feel that way, to really allow myself those feelings. Just sit with those feelings. They are scary. There’s a lot out there and allows me to sit with the feelings. Then, once I’ve accepted my own feelings, then I say, what can I do about it?

There are some small things that we can all do. We can recycle. We can watch our carbon footprint. There are things that we, as individuals, can do that put us back in the seat, I have some control over some of this, not all of it but some of it. I’m going to do what I can as my own individual person and/or my family. That’s really all I can control. Even my family, I can’t fully control. You do know with the toddler.

You’ve got to work with it. With my toddler, it’s so wonderful, and it teaches me a lot about being a person and a parent.

And what you can control and can’t control.

Right. It’s the art of letting go that is the biggest art of all, letting go. Do you believe in God? Do you believe in a higher power?

I do. I do, and with that and what you said, the power of letting go, it’s not to let go and not care. It’s to let go of feelings that aren’t helping. Me sitting in fear is not going to fix the environment. It’s not, and it’s only going to hurt me. Letting go of that fear into, “Okay, yes, this is scary. This is upsetting. What can I do with it?

Right. Because a lot of the time, we do nothing with it except being afraid or angry, and feeling like, if I feel those things, I need to do something. We’re actually doing more damage because whatever state we’re at, it’s affecting our environment. It’s like a ripple effect. When you put a stone in the water, there are ripple effects, especially on women. Women have so much power around their environment. We need to be in a state of harmony and use all the tools that we share, like having the awareness and ask ourselves, what am I feeling right now because sometimes we are so much in our heads that we are not in our hearts or in our bodies. We get so much in our heads that we get disconnected from our hearts. We can’t even figure out what we feel.

Right. We’re just spinning in our heads. We’re perseverating. It’s like obsessing about something in your head, replaying it over and over. How often do we do that? That’s not going to also fix the environment. That’s only going to add to my feeling unhappy, the people around me feeling unhappy because we’re all in the system. We affect each other.

Are you showing up as your best self? Do you make every day count?

Tony Robbins gives the example of a triangle. Change your physiology. It’s almost like having a pattern interrupt from NLP. The moment you feel something that is really stressful, you want to change your physiology. Go for a walk. Go for a run. Dance. Do something. Change your language. What are the words you’re saying? Language is a story. Be aware of the story and change it—what do you say to yourself, what do you say to others. Then change your focus because what you focus on, your energy will go to that. You want to change your focus, your language, and your physiology at the moment which is really a nice concept until you’re in the moment.

That’s so true. No truer words have ever been spoken. Exactly. It is really hard when you’re in that moment to be like, “Okay, now, I’m going to go dance,” because you’re in your head. It’s so true. This is what I work with my clients a lot around. How do you break that pattern where you get in your head and then you stay in your head. How do you break the pattern? What are some little things you can do to remind you, “Oh, I’m in the pattern?” I will say that to myself. I’ll say I’m in my head. I know I am. Don’t judge it. Just be present and that actually helps me break the pattern of being in my head. I observe it.

Yes. I do something similar. It’s like a mindfulness practice where I’m still in my head. Let me just go back here and feel the chair that I’m sitting in here, feel my body, feel my feet on the floor, and feel the temperature in the room, try to smell something. That brings me in my body and that calms me down. That and breathing. Breathing really helps me go back to the body.

Yes. The sensory pieces. I did my dissertation on infant memory which is sensory memory. My dissertation was on this because I asked the question, what happens if kids are abused. They don’t remember it as we remember it. They can’t say, I just moved from Israel to Florida. They can’t remember that but they sense something. How we sense it is in our bodies, especially when we’re babies and infants. The concept is if you calm the senses down, you tap into maybe some trauma that’s remembered through the sensory piece—the smell, the sound, the taste, the touch, the feel, all these senses—exactly what you do to get you back to the present. You tap into the sensory memories.

It makes complete sense. When I read my rebirth, I went to a memory and a vision of me being a week old. I wanted to have an RTT session with a practitioner. I got to a place of being in the womb, an experience of being zen. Sometimes, we need external help. We can’t do it all alone, on our own. It doesn’t matter how much we learn or we teach people. We always have to work on ourselves constantly. It’s never-ending.

People ask me, when does the journey to self-discovery end? They say as you’re rolling into that grave because we know it’s always. To your point, which is good for coaches by the way, sometimes we need help. We can’t get out of that pattern or out of our heads without help from somebody and that’s where coaches, therapists, all kinds of other options can help us to break those patterns.

Somebody told me that we teach what we need to learn or what we have learned.

For sure.

I used to be a personal trainer a long time ago just because I was curious about fitness and how to get myself fit.

Exactly. It makes sense. That’s where we’re connected. Fascinating.

You talked a lot about self-confidence. Why are people not confident?

How much time do you have? It’s really back to what you talked about—the stories we tell ourselves. Often, I say to my clients, what do you say to yourself about that? Then they say what I’m saying, I’m not smart enough. I’m not good enough. Well, no wonder you’re not successful in what you’re trying to do. You just told yourself that you’re not good enough to do it. It’s a doom loop a little bit. Our self-confidence leads to how we show up more confidently but how we show up more confidently leads to our self-confidence.

If you are on a negative spiral, a doom loop, then you’re constantly not self-confident versus I’ve got this, I’m good at this, I know how to do this, and really starting to believe it. Then I show up more confidently. People see that. They treat me more confidently which leads me to think that I’m more confident and it keeps feeding on there.

The journey of self-discovery ends when you roll into the grave. Click To Tweet

Is that external or internal?

It’s both. We internally say something, and then we externally live it, and then our environment reinforces the external living of it which reinforces the internal story we’re telling ourselves. If that makes sense.

It makes sense. I’ve been in mommy mode for such a long time. I lost some of my confidence. I did an Awaken Your Inner Goddess 7-Day challenge. I had about 1200 taken that challenge a long time ago. It was beautiful. We made so many breakthroughs for some women. It was just beautiful. I was related to that, feminine goddess and then I got pregnant. I still felt—when I wasn’t sick—I felt really beautiful. Then, since I was in mommy mode and lockdown mode, it’s almost like I got disconnected to her, to that goddess part and she’s awakening just very slowly.

As a new mom, everything goes to our children especially, these first couple of years.

Yes. What will be a good tip on how to connect to that, even through motherhood?

For me, I have three kids that are adults now, but how I started to reconnect to myself was finding confidence in my ability to be a mother and also to be my own self, my own individual self. When you’re a new mom, especially the first time, everyone identifies you through your child which is fine and normal but also making sure you’re spending time identifying yourself. Who am I? What are my strengths? What am I good at? They’re so far and away above motherhood. Motherhood’s fantastic, but there are so many aspects to it, and I think we start to forget them as new moms.

Give me more on that. That’s very interesting to me.

I’m trying to think of a good example. I remember when my first was born and I had this feeling of, “Oh my gosh. I have to keep this kid alive.” It was really scary. He needs to be fed. It was all these things and I just got caught in that—oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. I remember vividly, saying to myself, “Step back here. Observe this. You’ve got this. You’re aware. You’re a good caretaker. You’re going to do the best you can.”

Who are you, as well, in this? I made sure that I would read books that were interesting to me. I made sure that I did some things that were not directly connected to my child so that I was an independent person as well as also a mother.

That’s what I started doing this year. I took a workshop on Zoom. It’s called The Artist’s Way which is really great. One of the exercises they gave us, talking about releasing some of the anxiety. They call it Morning Pages. Every day in the morning, and if you can’t do it in the morning, you can do it in the evening. It doesn’t matter but it’s better to do it in the morning. It’s always three pages and you just do this intuitive writing.

You don’t edit. You don’t judge. You can say, blah, blah, blah, as long as you finish the three pages. You just write whatever’s on your heart. When you’re done, you take the pages, tear them apart, and throw them into the trash. That was a tool that really helped me. If there are some nuggets of wisdom, you just remember them and put them in your diary or whatever.

I love that.

It’s really good.

It’s a great idea.

Because there’s so much capacity to your friends, your husband, and just your internal dialogue, you want to—again, going back to cleansing—cleanse some of that, put it on paper, and let it go.

Release it. Exactly.

Our future depends on the stories we tell ourselves. Click To Tweet

I always finish my morning pages with gratitude which brings it into a higher vibration.

Yes. Exactly. Starting your day with gratitude. I think so many of us start our day with, oh my gosh, I have to do this and this is more important than that and what if. Then we start on that negative note. I love that idea. Releasing all that and then being grateful from there, and then when you go with your day. Yeah, that’s huge.

What makes you happy?

What a great question. So many things make me happy—my family, my work, my internal growth journey, the constant internal growth journey. Hopefully, the end of the very hard aspects of COVID makes me happy. Being vaccinated makes me really happy. Having my husband vaccinated. He’s an orthodontist. It’s been a very challenging time for him. Lots and lots of things, the people I need, the experiences, the journeys, my dog, my yard, so much.

That’s great. There is something in the Jewish wisdom and they say that when you are in a happier state, when you are in a state of higher vibration, whatever happens in the state of nature—which is it can be cancer, it can be COVID, it can be whatever—when you’re in this higher state, you control the nature of your body and you can manifest healing, even a placebo effect. There is so much research around placebo and even nocebo. Nocebo means that you are in a negative mindset, you can manifest something in the physicality that is negative. When you have a good placebo and you believe in something that is helping you, that will manifest in your body as well. Being in that state of happiness is an antidote for illness and depression. Overall, I think it’s the best pill on earth.

Absolutely. Think about what stress does ultimately to your body. It just tears your body down. That makes sense.

For sure. By having awareness, by having, I believe, a connection to source and like Wayne Dyer used to say, “Let go and let God.” We can come into perfect healing on all levels.

Absolutely. Agreed.

Lisa, what are your three top tips to living a stellar life?

Three top tips to living a stellar life. That’s a good question. The first is to believe that you are living a stellar life. Act as if and then you’re already there. The second is to surround yourself with people who also believe that for themselves and for you. The third is probably drinking up water, taking care of yourself physically. Get a good night’s sleep, drink water. Those physical pieces that so influence how you show up for the day.

Amazing. Thank you so much. If people want to consult with you, and follow you, and learn from you, where can they go?

Thank you so much, Lisa Kaplin. I really appreciate you. This was a wonderful conversation. Thank you.

Thank you so much. It was great.

Thank you and thank you, listeners. Remember what Lisa told you. Believe that your life is stellar, surround yourselves with people who believe that your life is stellar, and drink water, sleep well, take care of your body, and have a stellar life. This is Orion, until next time.

Your Checklist of Actions to Take

{✓} Spend your energy wisely. List your top priorities and make sure you’re willing to do the work to keep yourself aligned with your values. Work-life balance is not for the faint of heart but having determination goes a long way.
{✓} Find meaning in the work that you do. When you do what you love, the rest will follow. 
{✓} Be aware of how you show up in the world. Are you showing up as your best self? Do you make every day count? 
{✓} Watch what you consume mentally and emotionally. Watching too much news, spending too much time on social media, and associating yourself with toxic people is not good for you.
{✓} Let go of things you can’t control. Remember that the only thing you have control over is your emotions. 
{✓} Don’t suppress negative emotions. Fully acknowledge what you’re going through. Let yourself feel, and be patient while you go through your healing process. There are no shortcuts.
{✓} Understand that our actions, no matter how small, can have a ripple effect. Let this awareness guide you in making the right decisions in life.
{✓} Harness your God-given gifts. Discover what they are, keep developing them, and most importantly, share them with others.
{✓} Let your thirst for adventure and curiosity keep you following what makes you happy. Let it become your guiding light. Live in the moment and set your soul free of inhibitions.
