Danny de Hek 0:00
I am going to get you to introduce yourself because I always get people’s names wrong.
So you are
Rebecca Davison 0:06
Rebecca Davison, thank you for having me Danny it’s great to be here.
Danny de Hek 0:10
Good. Now we’re gonna get straight into it and muck around. We’ve got 12 questions which have been scrutinised by judges, and we’re gonna see how you answer them. I’m gonna ask you who what you do. So a nice simple one straightaway. What is your favourite book to read?
Rebecca Davison 0:27
Oh, I’m a big reader. So that’s actually quite a hard question for me. Two books actually sprang to mind though, I love the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which is about the sheep herd that goes on a spiritual journey essentially. And it’s, you know, it’s quite well known that alchemists so if you haven’t read it, make sure you do the other one that I have read multiple times. And I do love a book that you go back to and read again and again and again. Because you pick up different information is the book The road less travelled. And that is actually by a psychiatrist called in Scott peak, who’s written quite a few books after that, but there’s probably his most Well, no, and that’s, you know, the first sentence in the book is life is difficult. So in the end, obviously, he helps us to unpack how you can navigate through life and take the road less travelled, which brings you more fulfilment and happiness. So yeah, those be my top two off the top of my head.
Danny de Hek 1:32
Most people don’t believe me when I say it but I’ve never read a book of my life.
Rebecca Davison 1:35
Wow. But I bet you absorb information like crazy though, right?
Danny de Hek 1:40
I’ve discovered learning is I’ve got older and I love learning stuff in audiobooks is where I’m at at the moment. Yeah, yeah. Interesting enough. I went to a group called the speaker’s group, and they had people can do readings. And this guy was doing Mr. Penguin. They called Winnie the Pooh.
Oh, yes, yes one of my favourites
He was so animated and we were so quiet, quiet. And he was like, mesmerised. We were mesmerised by him doing it that he don’t we weren’t interested in what he was saying. Because, wow,
Rebecca Davison 2:17
He’s a good storyteller. Because when he dipoto, you have to do all the voices did he do? He must have Yeah. So of course, you’d be listening very intently. Because that’s part of the process of the pleasure, especially of a book like that.
Danny de Hek 2:32
I’ll thinking he should film it and do children’s reading.
Rebecca Davison 2:34
Danny de Hek 2:37
Good. Okay. So if you had, if you had a warning label label, sorry, if you had a warning label, what would it say? What would you say?
Rebecca Davison 2:45
Oh, um, it would probably say something like, fragile, like a bomb, not like a flower. Yeah, so, you know, like, I’m a Scorpio so I can you know, and I, I actually have a quite slow to burn, Nick kind of, you know, I can take quite a bit of punishment. But when I get to the point where I’m like, enough’s enough, you know, that can be like, absolutely. That’s a we’ve done enough for years.
Danny de Hek 3:19
You can say that for yourself. Yeah. Okay, so do you like or dislike surprises? And why? or Why not?
Rebecca Davison 3:28
I think the answer that everybody would say to their efforts, good surprise, if it involves like flowers in, you know, some kind of celebration and something awesome. But if it’s a surprise, that’s not so good. Um, yeah, I would, I probably would urge towards more, not surprises, you know, like I would, it would be my definition of horrifying to be like in a surprise party, because I would not like to be the centre of attention. I would be like, Oh, you know, it’s too many people looking at me all at once. Sorry, being an introvert, right? I’m just like, Oh, yeah.
Danny de Hek 4:07
I often think I’m an extrovert, but I’m actually an introvert, being extroverted. Makes sense. But my ex wife surprised me one day, she got a mate to pick me up on a sports car and he drove like an idiot in the country. And we finished up going to a place where they let you drive tanks, open parked cars. I don’t know why. So it was sort of a terrifying experience until I got behind the tank and the drive over a car.
Rebecca Davison 4:34
Oh, well, it sounds like fun though. Because you know, you’re in control of it. Right? Yeah.
Danny de Hek 4:39
55 tonne tank was just like me. It’s pretty cool. Got a question number, whatever it is for let’s see, what three items would you take with you on a desert island?
Rebecca Davison 4:51
I’ve thought about this before, you know, and I’ve always thought like, what’s the food that you would be able to eat and I know this sounds really weird, but it would be so So in salad, salad, so those would obviously be in my suitcase, I could take all the different types of soaps and all the different types of salad because of course, you can just kind of extrapolate it out. And what else? Obviously, there would be some books, it would have to be a book as opposed to a Kindle, because it presumably, you know, unless you knew how to rig up some electricity, so some books probably some sunscreen today. Yeah, well, I was just thinking, what else would you need if you had failures? agrees? Oh, yeah, maybe but you know, like, sleeping out amongst the stars is good, too, right.
Danny de Hek 5:43
Yeah, I think. I think the fact that was a deserted island means it’s more of Yeah, yeah.
Rebecca Davison 5:48
There’s nothing. Oh, well, yeah.
Danny de Hek 5:55
Alrighty, yeah. That’s a good word to use. What more? Are you wanting to add to your business right now? You just previously said, You’re being quite busy at the moment. So it’s good.
Rebecca Davison 6:06
Yeah. So, um, what would I want for my business right now? Um, I, as a funny question, because I’m always I’m very much in the present moment. So I’m always grateful for what I have created, maybe maybe a little bit more structure and regards to what’s going to unfold next. Like I’ve just done a little bit of training overseas, which is actually all about changing my business model, which is definitely outside of my comfort zone. So I probably need a little bit of just guidance support somebody to hold a little bit of space for me, is I steep into that, because it’s going to definitely be a game changer. And the irony being as all the pieces are all right in front of me, I just needed somebody else to come in and help me to kin connect the dots. So probably a little bit of hand holding and regards to actually getting to the, to the end result and having it all in place. But yeah, you know, well, on my way to do that. So that’s exciting.
Danny de Hek 7:09
We all reinventing ourselves at the moment.
Rebecca Davison 7:11
Yeah, definitely one thing. You know, like, I’ve been doing my business full time for eight years. And I think I’ve definitely carried some of that, like, you have to work really hard. We were talking about that just before right about getting the balance, right. And I’m really looking now to create more time and my business to do other projects. Like write a book exedra. And, yeah, learning how to create that space and be disciplined with yourself to be able to create it. So just going through that transition at the moment.
Danny de Hek 7:42
I want the first book that I ever read to actually be the one I wrote.
Rebecca Davison 7:46
Yes. I love it’s perfect I like it’s a good goal
Danny de Hek 7:53
Write a book about dyslexic with a dyslexic people will read it probably won’t be very successful. Okay, aside from necessities, what’s one thing that you could not go a day without?
Rebecca Davison 8:04
Danny de Hek 8:08
Except coffee? Oh
Rebecca Davison 8:11
Okay. Oxygen, probably. inspiration. Yeah. You know, like, I love to live in the energy of inspiration. I’m always asking questions of my own intuition to get inspire inspiration or inspiring ideas that I can implement to be of service to other people. So yeah, inspirational coffee.
Danny de Hek 8:30
I really like that answer. Yeah, that’s good. Do you have coffee machine at home?
Rebecca Davison 8:34
Yes I do. Yeah, my parents gave it to me. So I blame him for my addiction.
Danny de Hek 8:40
We had two machines when we moved in and we had to debate which one was better.
Rebecca Davison 8:45
Why did you come up with would you come up?
Danny de Hek 8:47
Well, it’s funny enough, I’ve got either like a one touch cappuccino machine and put everything in it. And it’s pretty cool. It’s a solid machine. It was three times the price of the one that we finished up making the decision on. And I think I think it’s a breville when it’s just grind your own.
Rebecca Davison 9:02
Yeah, yeah. It’s good.
Danny de Hek 9:05
I think the technology is a lot better now. But now I’m really impressed with it, actually. And we’ve actually just moved we’ve gone plant based eaters since the beginning of the year, and we’re using oat milk
Rebecca Davison 9:17
Yes, yeah. I use almond milk myself.
Danny de Hek 9:21
Yeah, it was really interesting. Taste I was quite impressed by it. So we just with the whole years been trying new different things. Really.
Rebecca Davison 9:29
Yeah, plant based on it. It’s definitely the way to go.
Danny de Hek 9:32
Yeah, no mystery at all. All the other stuff. Okay, what about school? What was your favourite subject?
Rebecca Davison 9:39
Oh grammes. So funny because I was literally thinking about this the other day, philosophy slash classics, so you know, studying Aristotle way and Socrates and you know, the gods and asking all those questions about what it means to be pious or a good person, you know, so, yeah, and I like that. probably liked this subject because it was actually taken by our Headmistress. And it was the only opportunity to really have a debate with her. Sorry, what was there
Danny de Hek 10:12
Was a Greek goddess or something.
Rebecca Davison 10:14
Wow. Yes, I could attribute those qualities to her if I was looking kindly.
Danny de Hek 10:23
Because enjoy VEDA, probably the worst place I’ve been to Greece and gone through the ruins, or they missed a whole lot of opportunity of learning about history. Yeah,
Rebecca Davison 10:32
I loved it. I just Yeah, I just loved the you know, too, because Socrates was the person who said an unexamined life is not worth living, or is Aristotle anyway, one of them. But you know, which is my work. It’s all about self inquiry, getting to know yourself. So that lines up perfectly.
Danny de Hek 10:50
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done talking about life?
Rebecca Davison 10:54
Oh, crumbs? What’s the craziest thing that I’ve ever done? I don’t know what your definition of crazy is. I have never jumped out of a plane or done a bungee jump. I don’t think I would ever be able to do that. Crazy. I lived in a van for six months when I was younger. I travelled across the United States with my Yeah, yes. Yeah, absolutely. So I guess I don’t know if it’s crazy, though. But it might be to other people. I’m not sure.
Danny de Hek 11:31
I hitchhiked through the Middle East.
Rebecca Davison 11:33
Danny de Hek 11:34
You get picked up by all sorts of people that have been really nice to you. And they’d say, and we’ve got your from and you’d say on the New Zealander and are you religious and you wouldn’t say no, but you’d sell on the Christian. And I remember saying to one guy, what if I was an American and I were not religious? He said he was really gonna give me less. No, just interested. Is it a? Yeah, yes. But America wasn’t far from it. Because we got near New Orleans. area.
Rebecca Davison 12:08
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, this you know, there’s definitely you can feel it in America toe. You know, like, in some states, it’s really palpable. You can feel tension, sometimes animosity, you know, even if you’re in San Francisco, and you walk a couple of blocks, you see a great contrast in regards to people living on the street, and then all the people from Silicon Valley who work in the city. So, you know, it’s Yeah, it’s it’s interesting country. And, you know, even that was 20 plus years ago, as well. So, yeah, I’m sure it’s very different now to I’m not sure if I would do it. Now. We did it with a lot of innocence.
Danny de Hek 12:49
I just Christmas time with Bangladesh, India and China. Bangladesh is a massive country. And but everywhere I travel in Bangladesh to people, we’re all about the same. But now you’re talking about the United States. You definitely right, you know, as like blocks of different people.
Rebecca Davison 13:05
Yeah, yeah. And in every state has very different identity. So yeah, United States, right.
Danny de Hek 13:12
Oh, so you work for yourself. They haven’t really got a job. But the question is, what’s the biggest complaint about your job?
Rebecca Davison 13:19
Oh, well, I don’t know if it’s complaint. It’s probably a positive that I don’t have one. You know, my last job was in banking. And yeah, that was quite a few months ago now. So my biggest complaint? Sorry, what was there?
Danny de Hek 13:37
Like a complaint about your last job? Yes,
Rebecca Davison 13:39
I was just thinking back to that. Was I was mismatched. And my value proposition. I thought there was something wrong with me, but I didn’t realise that it was just my values, you know, the values of what I was doing wasn’t aligned with me personally. So figuring that out, and then having the courage to leave and go and do something that was a value match, exponentially increased my happiness. So, you know, it was just such a relief to go, there’s nothing wrong with me. I just have different values from what I’ve actually chosen here. And the four you can go and change it.
Danny de Hek 14:13
When you’re in that situation. And you do look back, you’re amazed that you actually did it.
Rebecca Davison 14:18
Danny de Hek 14:21
What did I leave it so long?
Rebecca Davison 14:23
Yeah, exactly. I wanted I do that to myself.
Danny de Hek 14:28
Yeah. What was your first job? We’ve got two more after that job.
Rebecca Davison 14:33
Oh, my first if a job was working, and my dad’s Woolshed as arousing, which was sorting Wool, so yeah, I grew up on a farm. So you know, and it was the back breaking, but it was very hard work on the buttocks. You know anything about Woolshed. It wasn’t a raise stand, which means that you had to crouch down like on your you know, and you did that most of the day, up and down, up and down, up and down, and the next day When you got out of bed to you know, and your muscles would be really tight and sore, so you would be walking like you had plank legs. Yeah, it was hard work, but it was my very first job.
Danny de Hek 15:11
And what ends if you cross a sheep with a kangaroo, I don’t get a woolly jumper. Like I got told the other day, I tell dad jokes, and I’m going Oh, my goodness.
Rebecca Davison 15:23
Yeah, it’s good, though. Like, are you?
Danny de Hek 15:27
Fitting with the next question? Second to last, what makes you laugh the most?
Rebecca Davison 15:34
Do like a dad joke. Just like dad joke for sure.
Danny de Hek 15:38
Right? You don’t have to think about?
Rebecca Davison 15:39
Yeah, exactly. Nothing too complicated. Sometimes I’m different, like the person who’s like, everybody’s laughing. And I’m like, Oh, hold on a second. I’m not sure if I get it.
Danny de Hek 15:50
All right. Here we go. This one’s not complicated. can be Who is your hero?
Rebecca Davison 15:58
Oh, lots of people come to mind. Ah, les, um, my dad, obviously. Because, you know, he was a huge role model for me in terms of the fact that he, you know, he overcame fear a lot to create freedom for himself. three small children, you know, went over to a property and replumbed rewired, redecorated, painted it, you know, he and while running a farm and having three small children, I thought that was really courageous. So he was really the person who gave me permission to live my dreams. So he’s definitely my hero.
Danny de Hek 16:38
Maybe fix things with number eight, what?
Rebecca Davison 16:42
I’m not so good at it. But he was amazing. I used to call him MacGyver for that reason. He’s the only person I’ve got a very steep driveway. And he’s the only person I’ve ever seen successfully back a trailer up the driveway.
Danny de Hek 16:56
Good luck there.
We’ve done well, you’ve asked for 12 questions, naturally nice legs. This is the part where we sort of us for people who are curious who you are and what you actually do.
Rebecca Davison 17:07
So my I’m an intuition coach. So I actually help people shift out of fear and scarcity, and into freedom, pleasure and abundance, which are my values. And a lot of people share those values by activating your intuition. So which is really about learning how to find the truth for you, inside of yourself. And we do that, of course, through self inquiry. So learning what it takes to get to know yourself really well. So you can actually make choices that line up with your values, because that’s what’s gonna make you happy. You know, mind, your thoughts, your body and your spirit, when it’s all lined up. And you’re actually thinking thoughts that serve you and taking actions that serve you and the behaviours that serve you. That’s when you’re going to live your best life. And that’s where you’re going to experience more happiness. So helping people to get lined up or come into alignment, as we might say, some people might know it is, you know, because some people like what’s intuition because it can be a little bit intangible. So you might say, I’m a spiritual coach, I help people to connect in with something higher than themselves, we do a lot of energy work as such, you know, can’t change what’s happened in the past, but you can definitely raise the vibration, so you don’t feel bad about it anymore. So I do a lot of that work, and helping people to let go of old traumas, etc, maybe our beliefs, definitely helped people a lot around money. And because we all have limitations, when it comes to money, you can get to another level of success in your money, and then you want to go to the next level. So often, you have to go all up, you know, letting go of where you think people think that you’re greedy, or that there is going to take you away from your family or things like that. So helping people to recalibrate, right energetically to come into alignment with what it is that they wish to create. So it’s a lot of fun. It’s very diverse. And it’s, it’s coming online, more and more people are realising that, you know, you didn’t get left on the planet without any clues, right? You didn’t get dropped off to be punished, right. Like there’s more to life and as inside view, which is the last place where people look
Danny de Hek 19:21
Listen to you talking it like a flower that hasn’t blossomed yet. You got the real you or stuff like that. I was brought up an incredibly religious family. And it’s kind of like people’s say, you’ve got a chip on your shoulder. Kind of like you feel like you really have sometimes because every you go back to that point in your life where you had a big change, but you and I can’t remember stuff. You know, before that point, because the big point here something I haven’t ever delt with, or it’s just gone, you know, and it’s um, I think a lot of people will have some big issue in their life but then, you know, I was 27 years ago, I got a religion. And it’s not fixed for life. So I’ve been out of it for more than I’ve be in it.
Rebecca Davison 20:08
Yeah, and, and it’s and it’s very much, it comes back to often the emotions that we have about us, you know, because you can’t change what’s happened. But and it’s part of your story that you don’t want to let the feelings that you have around us to kind of roll the choices that you’re making in the present moment. And this often happens, right? We go, you know, am I good enough to be able to go and take that action step to put myself out there to be in service to other people. You know, this is one of the things that I help a lot of coaches with, is stepping out. And that comes with making themselves visible. And you would know Danny, what this is like when you first started making videos or doing podcasts and things like that, they can be naturally fear that comes up in regards to being judged by other people we’re perceived in a negative light. And that can literally stop us from taking those actions, least of all being reinforced from something else that’s kind of in your subconscious. That’s running energy, which isn’t supporting you to move forward. So it’s all really about knowing that you have everything to unravel what you need to unravel, so you can get free so you can move forward. And there’s nothing is amazing is, you know, that feeling of freedom that comes where you go, I used to have that feeling of resistance. And now it’s gone.
Danny de Hek 21:31
Now, I did listen to you recently on the radio. So are you regularly on there was that? Me on the radio? Yeah, I
Rebecca Davison 21:39
do a radio show called The final blessed radio show on planes FM at nine o’clock every Thursday morning. But it’s also a podcast from that as well called find your bliss.
Danny de Hek 21:51
Where we find you and then we’ve, what’s your website address.
Rebecca Davison 21:55
So website is rebeccadavison.life. You can find my blog there, you can find YouTube Channel, you can find information there in regards to, you know, free meditation in regards to how to activate your intuition and bring in your future self. Because that’s what we always want to experience the future version of ourselves. But how do we do that now. So there’s an opportunity to go ahead and start tuning in to what you want to experience, which is super fun.
Danny de Hek 22:28
I think there’s been a big shift lately with Kovac and going into lockdown, people are quite willing to get in front of a screen in it, do a course, a bit of personal development online, you know, and I think it’s gonna be more of a personal thing, because you don’t have to, you know, you can just watch it. Yeah,
Rebecca Davison 22:46
yeah, a lot of the people who come and see me as well, you know, they, they feel the work. And then they, they come and see me. And it’s all based on knowing that there’s something more. So often there’ll be in front of me, and they’ll be like, you know, I just felt drawn to speak to you. And they often don’t tell other people what they’re doing. Because they can feel they can be afraid of being judged or thinking people thinking that they’re a bit woowoo or out there. But we all have intuition, right. But some people might call it a gut instinct, or I just knew or I had a vibe or a hunch, you know, the language around, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is how you’re listening, because that’s actually to your benefit. And if you use your intuition in your business, you can get exponential results really quickly, because you’re not going through all the filter of the mind. You’re actually going to a part of you that knows the truth in regards to what’s good. So yeah, that’s exciting. It’s exciting.
Danny de Hek 23:41
I want to see the energy and see patient and I’m sure people want to contact you. They know how to have notes on the bottom of this so people can go down to the bottom and in find your website address in the radio show that you’re on. Awesome. So thank you very much for bigger loss shouldn’t come along. And we look forward to seeing you popping up on somebody else’s screen soon.
Rebecca Davison 24:00
Thank you, it’s a pleasure. Thanks
