Before we get to this week’s coaching video “The five core elements of spiritual growth” – I want to share big news with you.

Drumroll….

Daily Love TV is now – Claim Your Power TV.

You may have noticed that I am winding down “The Daily Love” as you’ve known it. We’ve stopped sending daily emails. We’ve stopped featuring other bloggers. And now, emails come from me, rather than “The Daily Love” or “Daily Love with Mastin Kipp”.

I want to thank you for being a special and important part of my life. For opening my emails. For reading my blogs and watching my videos. And then taking what you’ve learned and applying it to your life.

I do what I do for you.

Over a year ago, a mentor of mine who I respect in a big way told me, “Mastin, I want you to pick up your staff and comfort me as a teacher.”

Her words have resonated deep in my Soul ever since. I knew that meant that I had to change things up. And, to be honest, I’ve been terrified.

I didn’t want to let you down. I had gotten so used to sending daily emails. I love our bloggers. I love the Daily Love brand. And I thought that if I quit doing it the way that I was doing it, everything would end.

But, deep within my Soul I knew it was time for evolution and transformation. And I’ve been making these changes slowly and timidly this year.

Another small step in that direction is renaming Daily Love TV to Claim Your Power TV. Our new tag line is “Weekly guidance to live your purpose with passion.”

When I got still and asked myself what I do and who I am…

I realized I am a teacher and a guide.

And what I love most is bringing people home to themselves and their version of The Divine.

And, truth be told, I was terrified to own this fact. I shunned calling myself a teacher. I shunned calling myself a guide. I hid. I didn’t want to go too “woo woo”.

Until my mentor called me out and told me, it was time to up my game.

So, I’m declaring it here – I am a Spiritual Teacher.

I made the decision to make this change on August 30th, 2015 when I heard that Wayne Dyer had passed away. He was gone too soon. And I realized I didn’t have another moment to waste.

As this transition continues, I will be shutting down TheDailyLove.com and moving everything over to my site (details coming soon).

My intention moving forward is: to bring mentorship, guidance and compassion to a community of people who value love, growth, courage, empathy, and spirituality. To continue to share my experience – the ups and downs, and to be a Light on your path and a fellow student by your side.

This is not an ego move. This is a deep call from my Soul.

I realize that not everyone will agree with or like this new direction. And that’s okay. What’s true is what we either grow together, or we grow apart.

My hope is that we can grow together because I feel like we are just getting started.

There are five core elements to spiritual growth that helped me come to this decision and all important decisions I’ve ever made.

If you feel stuck, if you feel static, if nothing is moving in your life, these core principles will get you on the fast track to living a life of purpose.

When you apply these five core spiritual principles in your life, it will require that you make courage your new normal.

And, what’s so cool – you don’t have to do it alone. I’m here for you and so is our entire community.

Remember to leave a comment and let me know how you are going to bring courage into your life today.

Here’s to claim your power.
Here’s to following your gut.
Here’s do doing it afraid.
Here’s to staying close to your Soul.

I’ll see you soon.

All my love,

Mastin

Hey there and welcome to the new Claim Your Power TV with your host Mastin Kipp, where each week I will guide you to live your purpose with passion! This is a great, exciting re-brand for us. Claim Your Power is our new brand moving forward. Something that I’m so passionate about is teaching you how to live your purpose, and there are so many facets and so many elements of living your purpose that I thought it was vital to change the name of this offering to you so that we could go even deeper on helping you live your purpose.

This week I’m going to help you uncover the five core elements of spiritual growth. There are many elements to spiritual growth, but there are five core elements that I want to share with you today.

The first core element of spiritual growth is vision. You have to have a vision for where you’re going. The vision for where you’re going comes from that still, quiet place inside of you. You don’t want to get your vision from comparing yourself to others. You don’t want to get your vision from what your family or friends think you should do or what magazines or news say you should do. Vision comes from within. So you have a vision, you have imagination, you have something that you want to create in life. The first core element of spiritual growth is tapping into your vision.

Which brings me to the second core element of spiritual growth, which is listening. But who and what do you want to listen to? Here we want you listen to your heart, to your soul, to your higher wisdom, and that requires getting still. They say that meditation is listening to God or the divine and prayer is talking to God or the divine. In order to have a vision, you have to listen to your heart and to your soul. Without listening, you’re going to be misdirected and misguided all over the place. You’re going to say, well where should I go? Should I listen to this person or that person? A lot of times we see clients who have to go to 10, 20, 30 other people to get permission before they actually make a decision. So what we want you to do is have a vision that comes from listening to your heart.

And then the most important thing, the third stage of spiritual growth – and this is a big one, this is huge – is taking courageous action, which is action in the face of fear. A client recently asked me, “Mastin, how can I tell the difference between a loving choice and fearful choice because I’m scared?” And here’s the truth. When you’re listening to your soul, when you’re listening to your heart, you WILL be afraid because you will be stepping out into uncertainty. So it’s not a question of love versus fear, but of expansion versus contraction. So when you’re making a decision and ask ‘is this my heart, is this my soul?’ get still. Go inside and ask myself, am I going to feel expanded by this choice or contracted by this choice? And there’s the thing – if you feel expanded and scared, you know that that is your heart and your soul talking to you. It’s a vital piece of spiritual growth.

And then after we take courageous action, this is the fourth core element of spiritual growth – faith. Faith in yourself. Faith in the divine. Faith in God. Faith that you never walk alone. And faith that the challenges that come, the setbacks that come are not failures; they are temporary defeat. There’s a massive difference between permanent defeat and failure and temporary defeat. The truth is that if you’re going to live your purpose, if you’re going to grow spiritually, you will certainly come up against temporary defeat. That is absolutely something that you will experience. But it’s only failure if you decide to stop and quit. Otherwise it’s temporary defeat and it requires the faith to recognize that within that temporary defeat is an opportunity of equal or greater measure than the temporary defeat that you’re going through and that requires faith.

I personally believe that what we want, what’s put in our heart and soul to desire to create in life is purposely placed out of reach in this lifetime so that we may become the person it takes to realize our purpose and to realize our goal. And so, when you have setbacks, when you’re terrified, when you feel like there’s no way, it’s vital to have faith because you need faith to go with your courageous action because there will be fear and fear is calm with faith and knowing that no matter what comes your way there is a spiritual lesson. And when you learn the lesson you can progress and move on and it is inevitable that you will reach your goal.

And then the final core element of spiritual growth is service. If you’re growing just for yourself, if you’re growing just for your own satisfaction and approval and ego you are not growing spiritually. There’s a massive difference between being rich and having lots of money and being wealthy where you feel fulfilled and abundant every single day. And chances are if you’re watching this program, you’re interested in wealth. You’re interested in feeling abundant. You’re interested in feeling fulfilled. And when you make your life about dedicating yourself and your purpose, not just to yourself but to a larger cause greater than yourself that is what produces spiritual growth.

So to recap, the five elements of spiritual growth are vision, listening to your higher wisdom and to your heart, taking courageous action, living in faith and serving other people. If you can focus on these five core elements of spiritual growth and make your life a dedication to embody these core elements, your life will change massively and dramatically and quickly.

It is my great wish that you take this information and embody it and not just watch this video and then go, “That was nice,” and scroll on down Facebook or YouTube or wherever you like to be, but to really stop and ask yourself, what is my vision? When can I schedule time to get still and listen? And what specific courageous action could I take, what thing could I do that I’m scared to do? And how could I have the faith to know that as I take this action and I hit that temporary defeat that’s sure to come, how can I have faith in the middle of that knowing that there’s a spiritual lesson there? And then finally, how can I make my mission about being selflessly of service to other people? Really think about this. Take this to heart. Don’t make this just another couple minutes that you’re watching on the internet. Really allow yourself to take this in and apply it. I promise you that if you do, your life will change in miraculous ways.

Now you might be watching this video over on Facebook or over on YouTube. I’m going to encourage you to come on over to TheDailyLove.com and below this video leave your comment. Let me know what has happened when you’ve stepped out on faith? What has happened when you’ve got still and listened? What has happened when you got that vision and you were dedicated to it? Or if you’re scared, let us know how and why. The comments below are an incredible place to get support. Also, remember you can subscribe to this video on YouTube so that you can get immediate updates when I post new Claim Your Power videos. And also remember to subscribe to our weekly email so that you can get updates that I don’t send out anywhere else. My most important wish here at Claim Your Power TV is that you get out there, take action and make it real. We’ll see you next week!

  1. So inspired by your flexibility and willingness to, yet again, practice the courage that it takes to follow our hearts pull. You inspire me to do that in a BIG way because of examples like this post – your authenticity and your truth have always been an inspiration to me. Been following you for years and I am sending you so many blessings of peace and joy as you grow into this new phase of your life and of your message. ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Mastin You seem more present and solid More at peace with yourself and perhaps the world.There could be perhaps a liitle more space between spoken words (Take a gulp of sky ;0) Courage?” If you feel fearful but expanded not contracted” seems Spot On.I try and remember when feelings of past experiences hold me back that i’m not that baby-mind, child-mind, young adult mind, just married -mind, …last week- mind that I was.
      Ever Onward looking for that fresh breeze!

  2. thank you Mastin! this is a response to my prayer and a huge clarification! 🙂 I have already taken some big steps and faced some fears, and we’ll see what happens next – thank you for this video xx

  3. Great video Mastin 🙂 Glad you’ve taken the step to publically becoming a spiritual teacher, although your book was full of spiritual wisdom from a great teacher! For me stepping out into the unknown was when I finally stopped refusing to teach other women how to heal their money blocks after spending over 30 years struggling with money! As soon as I answered my calling clients began appearing from nowhere to become now here and I’m loving my work. It’s taken massive courage and there are still times when I find myself feeling overwhelmed by my situation as I recover from being a povertyaholic but you know what? I just get straight back up again and remember all the amazing things that my clients have achieved with my help and use that as a reminder for why I’m doing what I do. I now have what one of my mentors calls a business and a life of choice. And a beautiful angel feather has just landed on my keyboard as I typed this – I guess that’s great confirmation that the work I’m doing is needed and valued 🙂

    1. It’s really great to hear your story, Tania! It is amazing what happens when we step into our calling. We’re glad to hear of the courage and passion you have – and it sounds like you really touch a lot of people’s lives. Keep being the light! ~Team Mastin

  4. Wow that is literally what I am dealing with right now. I’ve not progressed or done anything significant in 2 whole years because I am “stuck” and indecisive of what step to make next. I knew I was unhappy doing what I was doing so I had the courage to stop. But all it has done was lead me into a black hole that is seeking impossible to get out of. People say just do anything and it will lead you somewhere else but frankly I’m scared to commit to something that I am not 100% into. I am a dabbler I love a little bit of everything but I don’t have any 1 thing I’m just extremely passionate about. I’m scared to commit to one thing as well and regret it and want to do something else after. My Indecision has now affected every area of my life extremely. I don’t even know who I am anymore . 🙁

    1. Oh Hila, we’re sorry to hear this. It can be so hard to get out of a place like that. You might really find meditation helpful as it can clear your mind and really help you to see what you’re meant to do, or at least what you’re next step might be. This previous guest post might offer some guidance as well: http://thedailylove.com/how-to-make-your-best-decisions-ever/. And most importantly, remember to forgive yourself if things don’t work out or turn out just how you had hoped – it’s all part of our journey! Start with little steps, little decisions and you will get to where you need to be! Sending lots of encouragement your way! ~Team Mastin

  5. Yay! I read your email and I read all your messages, but don’t normally comment, but…. I’m so excited for you! Stepping more fully into who you are, Authentic Self – Bam! Yay! When each one of us does that, it just opens up the possibility for more, for us all. But you already knew that! Still! Yay! (I’m cheering and standing up with you and for you!) Blessings to you, Mastin! <3

  6. First let me say, congratulations! Also I was saddened to read that Wayne Dyer had passed away. I just came across his book Wishes Fulfilled and it has opened up so much for me. Thank for you embracing your role as teacher. I am starting to come to the understanding that we all can and should be teachers (and students) in our daily lives.

  7. Congratulations Mastin! Once again, you are guiding us through your example. I’ve been pressing forward on my journey and keep finding myself taking two steps forward and one step back. I know it’s fear trying to creep in and you reminded me the next step after taking a courageous step is to have faith. Thank you for supporting me on my journey. I’m looking forward to the next phase of your journey!

  8. This was such a powerful video, Mastin. I especially loved what you said about “expansion and contraction.” I remember a couple of years ago I was meditating about a business problem. Nothing was working, and it felt like I just kept banging my head against the wall. When I meditated, it was one of those rare moments (which I wish I could do more often) when I seemed to go completely into another realm. I sat up, opened my eyes and said “that’s NOT what I want to do at all–and that’s why it’s not working.” It was scary, but I took that other direction that my soul dictated –and I felt that expansion!

  9. Great video Mastin! For the past few years, I’ve been afraid to take the COURAGEOUS ACTION(S) in building my business. I have the VISION, am LISTENING to my wisdom and heart, and stay focused on SERVICE to others, but I’m ashamed to say that as much as I claim to have FAITH, I haven’t surrendered myself to it fully. Thank you for helping me face my reality, and to witness through your own spiritual growth that mine is also possible.

  10. I’m just here to tell you (and I’m not trying to freak you out) Claim Your Power TV is a terrible name. DailyLove is a great name because its unique and compelling. Not to mention, it has built in equity. Don’t be so literal Mastin.

    1. thank you for your feedback! This is the direction we are going – if there is something you feel should be shared with the world. I encourage you to build it, create and and go with a name that works for you. There was a time when Daily Love brand had no brand equity. And I believe the same is true here, too.

  11. I must say, your message couldn’t have come at a more perfect time in my life. I’ve been wanting to find new employment and love but was afraid to take the leap of faith, especially after losing my significant other only 3 years ago. The last year I’ve been trying to open my mind about love in my life but again, afraid to make that plunge. Well, Monday I was given my noticie of termination after working over 11 years at my job. The Universe has decided I need to take that leap of faith and has given me a push. Now I will put my quest of finding love on hold while searching for new work. After reading your article, what I really need is to find my quiet place and listen to my heart. Thank you Mastin, you’re timing is great!

    1. I’m so happy for you Julie-Ann! I know this is scary, but trust what is unfolding and that something greater is on the way!!!

  12. Thank you for this video Mastin. I am currently at a crossroads in my life now. I ma trying to decide what to do as a career. I am terrified of standing on my own two fee and to be self employed but at the same time I know that what I want the most is to become a life coach and a teacher for others. I know that it is time for me to take courageous action and to stop doubting myself. It is time for me to leap into the unknown and know that the Universe is supporting me all of the time. Thank you for sharing the five core elements, they are exactly what I needed to hear to move into the direction of my dreams.

  13. Hi Mastin, This is such exciting news! I am really looking forward to following you on your journey into Claim Your Power. I tried the Kipp Heart Therapy last week and was surprised with what I heard but I’m going with it as I know that’s what I should be doing. Sending best wishes from England, Catherine 🙂

  14. I am very proud and excited for you! I came across you when I was at the lowest point in my life. Truthfully ready to give up. You remind me there’s more. Thank you. Growing with you.

  15. This is by far the best lesson you are teaching, change is frightening and I can see you have fear like all of us, but you are not letting it stop you. Good for you, I admire you more fore it. I love daily love, found nothing wrong with it, so I am sure this new face will be even better I with u. Bravo. Thank you for showing every aspect of yourself even your vulnerability. It shows how strong you are.

  16. Mastin, You ARE definitely a teacher and a guide. Don’t even try to fool yourself! You’ve taught me so much over the past 5 years and those teachings and your presence have guided me through my toughest times and into the amazing life I am creating today. Thank you for living your soul’s truth and sharing it with all of us and also inspiring me to do the same while stepping into my purpose.

    Congrats on your new venture into uncertainty and the woo-woo.

    Big Love!

    Nick

  17. Thanks for the beautiful reminder Mastin! Loved the video and am so excited for you with your new branding!! Congrats Baby! Proud of you and honored to be able to call you MY spiritual teacher. xoxo

  18. Mastin, congratulations on everything. Thank you for following your bliss. Seeing this shows others that they can do the same. LOVE!

  19. WoW ! 😀

    Exactly what I am experiencing right now in my business ! 😀

    To know that even one of my very inspiring mentor goes through this confirms to me that I am on the right path ! 😀

    Thank you Mastin for having the courage to BE YOU, I really appreciate it !
    All the best !

  20. These are really good. I have to listen 2more times and process. I definitely know I need to take courageous action. This is the best video you have made.

  21. Oh funny that you now declaring yourself as a spiritual teacher. I have always seen you as that, I thought that is what you were 🙂

  22. I need to work on staying the course, so to speak, when the small defeats hit me. I have definitely become a lot more resilient and now I need to become more consistent with taking courageous action. I start and stop things so often and that discourages me.

  23. Hey Mastin!

    I just knew about your website I am a IN student and loved your videos and posts. I will keep follow you and hopefully do one of your course.
    Have good night!

  24. I’m scared to death but if I don’t change that’s exactly where I’ll be. I saw you on super soul Sunday and it was exactly what I needed. I struggle with addiction/alcoholism, been in and out of recovery and have hit bottom yet again, this is my time. I long for my spiritual self back and you and marie and Gabrielle on the show have truly showed me how to get there and you through this article, I’ll be reading it daily. Thank you ♡♡

    1. Keep on. I hope you are clean and sober in this moment. It’s truly worth it. I left recovery after 5 years and 8 months of clean time bc I was done. After 6 months of recreational using and teetering on the brink of destruction. I stopped. It’s not the life I want. I know the GoodLife. I lived it for 5 years❤️ I am back. 90 days yesterday.
      Much love❤️

  25. Applying the 5 elements of spiritual grow to my own life…

    Vision:
    In May of 2015, I moved from San Diego to Vancouver, WA to help my father
    take care of my mother who has the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s. I was working remotely for a software company in San Francisco. I was working 50-80
    work weeks, stressed out beyond beliefs, and literally hating my life. I knew I was stuck but didn’t know what to do to catapult out of my situation. I began meal planning, grocery shopping, and cooking meals for my parents every day. It was the one thing in my life that I looked forward to. I found motivation and passion in re-discovering my love for cooking and making others happy through food. I now had the vision for where I wanted the direction of my life to take.

    Listening to your higher wisdom and heart:
    Over the course of the next few months, I prayed to God, listened, and paid attention to the subtle and not-so-subtle clues he was leaving in my life. I asked
    for peace about what my heart wanted and received it. My family was skeptical but I stood strong in my conviction. I investigated cooking schools and further developed my vision. I knew that I needed to have some money saved up to sustain me for a couple of months, so my focus was to reduce bills and save money.

    Taking courageous action
    In January 2016, I received a text message from my esthetician that she received an email about a special on tuition at the Institute of Integration Nutrition. I
    called IIN the next day and enrolled in their Certified Health Coach program. Even though I didn’t have the full tuition, I knew IIN and culinary school would be the perfect combination to support my vision (and utilized the payment program).

    Living in faith
    My plan was to continue working in my current position until April and begin culinary school in May. Then a really traumatic situation occurred at work that put me in a position where I needed to make a choice. Do I continue to put my health and happiness further at risk? I gave notice – 3 months sooner than expected. At that same time, a new class starting March 30th was added, so I quickly signed up to start culinary school sooner. In February, I moved into my own apartment
    within walking distance from culinary school. I have been focusing on getting healthy (when working long hours, there just was never time or energy for exercise), learning about optimal nutrition to feed my body, and trusting that God will bless my journey, connect me with like-minded individuals, and provide financially.

    Serving other people – The founder of IIN teaches the IIN students so they can become teachers, mentors, counselors, and coaches in order to change to world. This is my mission. To serve other and provide information so that they can have a better life. When I awoke one morning this week, God was sharing with me a message he wants me to communicate. I ran to my computer and started typing. The words just flowed from my head down to my fingers. The message is on the connection between our health and spirituality. It is a work in progress, and I hope to be a poster child as I focus on applying all of the information I am learning at IIN. I am learning so much at IIN that I will be able to use in my practice. It provided me the opportunity to learn about Mastin Kipp and The Daily Love. Thank you!!

  26. Although I have been on a spiritual journey towards living my purpose, I have just recently become aware of this journey. I had to have a nervous breakdown before realizing that living my purpose is a matter of life and death. Now, I have a vision, I have the courage, and I want to live a wealthy and abundant life, but more importantly, I want to help others find their purpose. I am similar to Mastin in that I consider myself a Spiritual Teacher and Guide, yet I am at the very beginning of pursuing this passion. I am so grateful for teachers and guides like Mastin. You inspire and encourage people like me to follow their dreams and to know that the vision I have can become a reality. I just wish I was further along, but I am still happy to be committed to this journey, finally.
