    Sparking Epiphanies • X29 FULL EPISODE UP FOR A LIMITED TIME

    We will learn:

    How to recognize an epiphany

    The stages of every life-changing epiphany

    How to utilize our epiphanies to their highest potentials.


    Have you ever had an epiphany? Do you even know what one is?

    We usually use it to mean a sudden revelation or insight… and most of the time I hear it used in those lightbulb moments of creativity… kinda like an “aha” moment.

    But I’m coming to learn it goes a little deeper.

    The dictionary definition is a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential *meaning* of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.

    And the word “epiphany” dates all the way back to ancient Greece. It comes from the Greek “epiphaneia,” meaning “appearance” or “manifestation,” and was usually referred to the revelations brought to us by the gods.

    So it’s not just about a random insight… it’s an intuition realization about the the deeper meaning of something.

    Which I believe is our whole purpose in being in a body in this lifetime. To find the meaning in our lives.

    Our guest is Elise Ballard. She is the author of the book, Epiphany: True Stories of Sudden Insight and Epiphany: The Journal, which are all part of her Epiphany Project, a collection of interviews with people from all walks of life about their greatest epiphanies. 

    She is now considered an “epiphany expert” so I’m super stoked at the insights we’ll get from today’s episode.

    How to Decide

    How to Decide

    We will learn

    How the hindsight bias screws with our decisions

    How to better identify the obstacles that might get in our way

    When to bring out our full decision toolkit and when to act quickly


    Why are decisions so hard?

    We should all know by now that our time is the most valuable resource we have, so why would we willingly waste it on things that are so trivial?

    Indecision is not cute. I’ll tell you what it is though… It’s annoying. It’s counterproductive and it’s a form of pain.

    And there are all sorts of consequences.

    We end up procrastinating so we don’t have to face the decision at all. Which then affects our self-belief because we stop trusting ourselves to keep a structure and finish things.

    So today we’re going to talk about How to Decide.

    Our guest is Annie Duke. She is a corporate speaker, and consultant in the decision-making space. 

    And she’s the author of How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices and Thinking in Bets, which is a national bestseller. 

    She is the co-founder of The Alliance for Decision Education, a non-profit whose mission is to improve lives by empowering students through decision skills education.

    Motherhood & Entrepreneurship • X28 FULL EPISODE UP FOR A LIMITED TIME

    We will learn:

    Multi-sensory healing - your senses are the portals for your awareness

    Why strong women often feel empty and disconnected inside

    How to stop outsourcing your authority


    Do you believe you can have it all? Or does a part of you believe that having it all is actually a little selfish?

    As women, we’re given mixed messages, about pretty much everything. Thankfully we live in an era of female empowerment so there are plenty of stories of women being successful and raising a family.

    But what I’ve found is that when it comes down to it… like when women are faced with the logistics of what it takes to have both, the choice becomes a little murkier.

    We wonder if it’s selfish to outsource our parenting, or if it makes financial sense or what we’re depriving them of, or if we’ll have the energy to succeed and still be a good mom.

    So today we’re talking to someone who has done it all.

    Cherie Burton is a pioneering spiritual psychologist whose mission in life is to transform women into authentically embodied and empowered leaders. 

    She is also a mother of six, an author, an international speaker and host of the Women Seeking Wholeness podcast.

    How to Develop Mental Strength • 163

    How to Develop Mental Strength • 163

    We will learn:

    What makes a mentally strong person

    Why and how to do hard things

    How to push through self doubt toward our highest purpose


    Would you consider yourself mentally strong? Do you even know what that means? 

    Most people though equate mental strength with mental health. But according to the dictionary mental health is just the absence of a mental illness. 

    Often it’s our struggles that motivate us to develop mental strength because we realize that the pain of change is less than the way things are.

    But here’s the thing, we don’t have to wait for things to get so bad that we’re forced to make changes in our lives. We can choose to consciously create our lives based on what we want out of it, rather than just based on what we don’t want to happen.

    Well today we’re going to learn how to develop the mental strength that will help us lead our best lives.

    Our guest is Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and the host of the Mentally Strong People podcast. Her books, including 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do, and  are international bestsellers. She also gave one of the most popular TEDx talks of all time.

    Body Image Resilience • 162

    We will learn:

    The difference between body image resilience and body positivity? 

    How self-objectification destroys our identities and what to do about it

    How to create a healthy relationship with your body including powerful mantras and being more media savvy


    If you’re anything like me, most of your life you’ve had a love/hate relationship with your body.

    Actually, if you’re a woman, there’s a good chance there’s not a lot of love in that love/hate relationship.

    Approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and resort to dieting to achieve their ideal body shape. 

    Our obsessions and disappointment with our bodies isn’t healthy. It creates a disordered relationship with food or with exercise, but most dangerous, it creates a disordered relationship with ourselves.

    Today’s episode we’re going to explore an alternate vision for your relationship with your body.

    Our guest has a really unique perspective because as an identical twin, she and her sister basically saw themselves from the outside in, with a constant comparison and sense of competition.

    We will be speaking with Dr. Lexie Kite today. Both she and her identical twin Lindsay have PhDs and are co-founders of the non-profit Beauty Redefined and experts in the work of body image resilience. They reach millions worldwide via research-backed online education. And their new book More than a Body was just released today.

    Work through Anxiety and Embrace Struggle • X27 FULL EPISODE UP FOR A LIMITED TIME!

    We will learn:

    How to release our resistance around things we can’t change

    How to identify subconscious patterns that drive our behavior in subtle ways

    How to relieve a panic attack in the moment


    The holidays can be stressful, especially if you’ve been financially impacted this year.

    There’s all the gift expectations and shopping and cooking and planning… or maybe sadness because you can’t gather or trying to figure out how to make this season special for grandma.

    Anxiety is really just a feeling of worry or unease about the future. And how your mind and body manifest that unease might be different.

    There are a few mindset shifts that I think have played a huge role in my being able to overcoming my anxiety quickly.

    First, I don’t identify with it. It’s temporary and this step is critical to trusting yourself to move through your feelings.

    Second, train yourself to look within instead of placing blame outside of yourself. This also puts the power back in your hands because you can change how you’re approaching the moment, but you usually can’t change other people or events.

    Once your brain is primed that you have more power than you used to give yourself credit for, then you have all sorts of tools for dealing with anxiety in the moment.

    And that’s what we’re talking about today.

    Our guest is Jean Walters. She is a Transformational Coach and Best Selling author of 5 books specializing in spiritual and personal empowerment. She has been teaching metaphysical techniques and performing Akashic Record readings for 40 years. And she’s the author of he Journey from Anxiety to Peace: Practical Steps to Handle Fear, Embrace Struggle, and Eliminate Worry to become Happy and Free.

A sunbeam in my days

Melissa does a wonderful job in helping to achieve a better life, a better connection with our soul and a deeper understanding of how our mind works. She is profound, empathetic and humble. I love this podcast and it is helping me so much through difficult times. She never tries to sell things as I found in other podcasts, where there’s more advertising than substance. Thank you, Melissa, you are such a gift. Thanks for sharing all this inner richness with us. ❤️
