    64. Why we don't always love your solutions

    64. Why we don't always love your solutions

    Solutions are good right? I am just trying to help. Yes, but we actually find it really frustrating when we are sharing an issue and our partner jumps straight to solutions. Why is that? What is going on here? And what do we want and need instead?
    Listen to this episode as we explore what is going on with not always loving solutions.

    63. How to be who we truly are in relationship?

    63. How to be who we truly are in relationship?

    In this episode, I talk to my beautiful, soulful friend Kris Franken.
    So many people ask me how they can find themselves, be true to themselves and still be in relationship. It can be tricky to navigate. We fear that if we change and become more true to ourselves that we will lose our partner. We fear that authenticity and integrity means loss of connection. Well, today I called in Kris to talk to us about this because Kris, in my opinion is the epitomy of being true to herself, of being wildly, truly authentic, and she manages all this within her 20+year relationship.
    Kris shared her integrity and authenticiy with me on the Beauty Load podcast where we talk about our own true beauty.

    About Kris
    My guest on this episode is my friend, author, mentor, healer and way shower, Kris Franken.
    Kris is a spiritual teacher who has a background in psychology as well as in the magazine publishing world and is the author of 2 books and creator of multiple oracle card sets. One of the reasons that I really wanted to share her with you and get her wisdom into the Beauty Load is that Kris is having a deep love affair with mother earth – her take on beauty comes from a place of being deeply deeply connected in the experience of living in her body as a spiritual being in amongst nature and the miracle of life.
    Where to find Kris

    Kris has her second book,Wild hearted purpose which is out now.

    62. Does your partner have sex tantrums?

    62. Does your partner have sex tantrums?

    Does your partner have sex tantrums?
    How does it make you feel?
    How do they feel?
    What is going on and how do you get out of the downward spiral of need, guilt, obligation, and then less desire?
    Listen in as we unpack this very common dynamic, try not to generalise too much, and as I give you a few pointers to get back to sex without the guilt, anxiety and pressure.
    For more exploration on sex tantrums check out Emily Nagoski's book Come As You Are.

    61. Why is intimacy so darn hard?

    61. Why is intimacy so darn hard?

    Intimacy (and I am not talking about sex), in my opinion is one of the hardest things in the whole world, but also, something that gives us the deepest most heart fulfilling satisfaction.
    Gah, what a dilemma! It would be so much easier if we could just get all operational and robotic and not have to have those hard conversations, get vulnerable and honest with ourselves and then share it with another....we could just get on with it. But alas, as humans, we are drawn back in to the fray.
    To do it best, intimacy starts within with an intimate relationship with ourselves. So what does that look like?
    In this episode I share my very messy intimate journey that led me to be an intimacy and relationship coach and share with you what getting intimate entails.
    This episode was inspired by an interview on @drkirstyseward 's podcast. You can listen to that here - podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/dr-kirsty-seward/id1617397162

    Trailer - The Beauty Load podcast

    Trailer - The Beauty Load podcast

    Hello ,it's me Nicole Mathieson and I would like to introduce you to my brand new podcast; The Beauty Load, How to feel good enough in your body.
    This podcast is inspired by my book also called the Beauty Load in which I explore this exhausting pressure, anxiety and insecurity that many if not all women feel in regards to the way they look.
    In this podcast, I aim to explore how the Beauty Load is felt by different people, in different countries, different cultures and sub-cultures and with different experts.
    I aim to normalise the struggle of the Beauty Load.
    I aim to question the culture, the expectations and the high standards we hold ourselves to.
    I aim to raise awareness of how much of a privilege it is to even worry about this. But also to raise awareness of how much we are trapped and limited by this constant insecurity and anxiety the way that we look creates in us.
    Most of all, I hope that in all this exploring we feel a little bit less alone and we can minimise the load that we carry, so that we can just get on with living our lives and being our beautiful, radiant selves.

Nicole, I am loving your podcast and you provide such beautiful and easy to implement tips. Loved the guided meditation at the end of your 'I am' episode. Pure bliss.

Inspiring!

An awesome collection of interviews of woman with various "bathroom floor moments" and how they have worked it through and found the courage and resilience to continue. A helpful guide for those experiencing hardship and offers hope and guidance in many ways. Nicole Mathieson seems to have a natural, genuine way of connecting with people.

Raw, Honest and Deeply Moving

Unbreakable is such a beautiful, raw, honest and authentic podcast series hosted by the gorgeous Nicole Mathieson. Nicole knows how to ask the hard questions that unravel the true core of that bathroom floor moment that unfortunately most of us have experienced.
Highly recommend you sit down and open your heart to this beautiful and deeply moving interview series!
