Jaimal Yogis – Heart & Soul – Embracing Your Fears

When My Friend Srini (Founder & Host of Blogcast FM), suggested Jaimal as a guest for this show, I became really intrigued by his work & books. Aside from the fact I really respect Srini, I appreciated that Jaimal’s work is focused on understanding one of our most primal & misunderstood emotions, Fear. As I learned more about Jaimal read parts of his book, I soon realized he is someone that aside from a big heart also has a very powerful message to share with the world.

Jaimal has a fascinating story, from leaving his home at the age of 16 to find his truth in the waves of Maui, to becoming an author and roaming the world in search for what causes fear and how do we use it to our advantage, he really has something valuable to offer: authenticity and drive. I invite you to watch/listen to this interview and always bring back what he shares to how you can use fear in your life to serve you and grow.

Some key insights from this interview:

  • Why he left home at 16 and what that experience taught him about fear.
  • Why Jaimal feels he is a hippie at heart.
  • What’s the beauty in letting go of who you think you are.
  • His definition of Fear and why we need to revisit our overuse of it.
  • Why fear makes us rationalize lies.
  • How meditation helps us distinguish between “paper” and “real” tigers.
  • How to overcome “Blue Squares” in our lives (something he learned at a neuroscience lab).
  • Why our basic substance is connected to oceanic love.

I LOVE so much about this interview Bern and Jaimal! 

When he says "The real problem was, in retrospect, that I wasn't being my authentic self" - WHAT a tremendous lesson to learn at such a young age!

And redefining fear in its most literal sense is a brilliant way to really make USE of it!

Thank you both for the work you do!

I *love* Jaimal!  I first read his book "Saltwater Buddha" a few years back when I had moved my children and I onto a sailboat, and those around me were less than supportive of this decision.  His message was timely, his way of writing is easy to read and process, yet so profound and inspiring!  This entire interview--the energy, the message, the timing--makes my heart sing...I'm a "hippie at heart"...Thank you both, Bern and Jaimal, for being you and for all that you share!

Very enlightening!! So true, I remember using every excuse out there just to hide behind my fear. Actually, I was so good at it, that my excuses made me out to be hero LOL..."I can't quit my job, sell everything and travel, I will disappoint my mom, I will miss my nieces and nephews growing up." Yup, I was the awesome aunt and the perfect daughter! I was terrified of losing everything that was familiar to me. I am still afraid, now I focus on not letting it decide for me. It's not always easy. Jaimal has shared so much to help make it easier:) Thanks for sharing
