About Lori Losch

When I’m not creating, you can find me hiking the trails near our homes in Vancouver and Phoenix or completing higher altitude treks abroad. Supporting NGOs that advance prosperity and healing in the developing countries I explore, makes the adventures extra special!

Writing is also a passion. I’ve had the blessing of publishing two kids books (“Bumbles…saves Naipoki!” and “Bumbles…finds her way home!”) and am a three-time bestselling adult non-fiction author (“The Soul of Success” with Jack Canfield and my own books, “Safe Souls: Transforming Relationships Through the Power of Kind, Clean & Clear Communication” and “Rather than Rehab: Quit Bulimia & Upgrade Your Life.”)

I also love yoga, reading, skiing, motor-biking, contemporary architecture, horses, and snuggling with my husband and two rescue dogs, Milo and Tessa.

3 big ideas discussed in this episode:

  • Your biggest MESS can be your biggest MESSage.
  • Addiction is simply pain avoidance and humanity is wrought with it. Whether people have taken addiction to a massive, life altering degree, or they have simply simmered with addictive behaviors, understanding the drive to seek pleasure and avoid pain is key component in the healing process.
  • Connection heals addiction—connection to our emotions, to ourselves, to others, to our source energy/god/spirit (whatever you chose to call it.) Our brains are hard-wired for connection and community.

Show Notes:

YOUR BIGGEST MESS CAN BE YOUR BIGGEST MESSAGE.

  • We all have stories and the most the connecting bits is more on the messes that we’ve made.
  • The catalyst for change is not being ashamed of it and sharing our stories with other people.
  • Recovery happens when you start speaking about your mess.
  • Speak to other people about your mess but only to certain ones who you know can help you.

ADDICTION IS SIMPLY PAIN AVOIDANCE AND HUMANITY IS WROUGHT WITH IT.

  • Humans are conditioned to either in pleasure or run from pain.
  • Addiction is way to avoid pain.
  • Pain is not something to be ashamed of.
  • What you focus on persists.

CONNECTION HEALS ADDICTION—CONNECTION TO OUR EMOTIONS, TO OURSELVES, TO OTHERS, TO OUR SOURCE ENERGY/GOD/SPIRIT

  • Whatever your addiction is, you are just disconnected from people but we are designed to be connected.
  • Creating connection in a community is a big healer.

Quotes:

  • Recovery happens when you start speaking about your mess.
  • Pain is not something to be ashamed of.
  • Creating connection in a community is a big healer.
