052 Aligning with Joy, Interview with Moj Razmi
In this interview with Moj Razmi, we follow her journey from professional woman rising the corporate ladder to stay at home mom, to yoga teacher, to mindshift leader. We hear about a coworker who’s nasty comment inspired Moj to take steps to shift her life to more closely align with her true self and live a life of joy.
What was the one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love? I think me being hard on myself. Bullying myself. Other expectations of me. Being cloaked. Not honoring my calling. Not valuing myself. Not feeling deserving. And not being vulnerable to my truth.
Who is one person who has changed your life for the better? I think that mean person was the person who triggered a really deep thing in my heart and allowed me to access what it is. So even though in the universe does things in a funny way. Even though if I tell that story, anybody and everybody is willing to beat that person up for me, that person was the one main person, who in this situation allowed me to initiate that shift.
What is the best advice that you have ever received? Time is going to pass, whether or not you are happy or sad. Not matter the hardship. If you choose to be sad, you look back ten years and you say, “Oh, that makes you more sad” because you wasted your time ten years ago. But if you choose to be happy, then ten years later you will look back and you will be happier, because even though, whatever the circumstances were, you didn’t let them phase you.
What is your favorite self care habit? One of the things I do is I add and subtract activities. So right now, I have challenged myself to running a mile a day, and taking an 11 minute nap. Find time to do one mile a day, and in the afternoon take an 11 minute nap. . . I do a quarterly cleanse program which is food based. For me, it’s to be okay to add and subtract things, just maybe for seven days.
What is your favorite quote? “It’s better out than in.” From the movie Shrek.
What book are you reading right now? Desire Map, by Danielle LaPort.
What is the one thing that you are most passionate about? Beside my family and my kids, what I am passionate about is what I get to do as a mindset shifter and ego whisperer. I get to witness spirits being uplifted. I get to experience turning focus from goals and doing to feelings and beings. The “aha” moments that I get from my work with clients, and also smiles that show up on their faces where there was once devastated and sad.
