    34 - Meeting A Bigger You

    34 - Meeting A Bigger You

    What does change look like to you?
    For me, it looks like distancing myself from all external pressure and expectation and choosing a bigger version of myself, one who represents the change I desire.
    I visualise every trait, behaviour, action, decision and emotion that this ideal version of myself would possess, and I become her. I choose bigger than the habitual version of myself that I know now.
    Another way to put this: Instead of worrying about how to change (and all the steps and checkboxes I need to tick off to validate I’m on the right track to my change), I become the change before it’s here.
    The scary-fun part? I never know what/who this new version of myself is or how her presence will shake things up in my known world (my businesses, relationships, friendships etc).
    When we sense change is required or we’re on the precipice of shedding a loose layer of ourselves, the work is an inside job because ultimately what we’re breaking away from is an attachment to the outside world.
    In today’s episode, I share a more heart-opening approach to creating change on any level, for any area of your life, and internally. I’ll walk you through meeting a bigger version of yourself and why this is the most powerful practice for growth and transformation.

    33 - Meditation Frustration

    33 - Meditation Frustration

    There’s a point in my meditation where my mind begins to speak louder than my body. I hit a wall or point of frustration and I begin to doubt, judge and question my meditative practice.
    Exploring this crossroad has been life-changing for me and I’m excited to share why in this episode.
    Meditation frustration is absolutely necessary if we are to explore new possibilities and move to a higher state of being. When we stay, we are saying yes to something different and something bigger than the acceptance of who we were before we started our meditation.
    Our role in meditation is to meet the invisible wall and frustration where it is and stay. This is the action that leads us to create real change in our lives. It is in these exact moments where we’re on the cusp of something far far bigger.
    Next time you sit down to meditate, whether you’re new to the craft or a seasoned meditator, sit down with the intention to get up as a bigger version of the you who sat down.
    Allow your meditation to be more urgent than the tasks at hand (because it is). Allow your frustration to lead you to a frequency that will take care of every single one of those tasks, and from a higher state of being.

    32 - Body Shame

    32 - Body Shame

    This episode is dedicated to all women experiencing shame around their body.
    Shame is one of our primary core emotions and in today’s episode, I share with you the in’s and out’s of shame separate to the body.
    This is not an A-Z guide on how to ‘never feel body shame again’. A goal like this is unattainable and as a result, only perpetuates more shame.
    In today’s episode, we will explore shame as an emotion, the ways we project our shame onto our body, and how to be with our shame rather than trying to escape it.
    When we’re willing to place our attention to our shame as an emotion separate from our body, we learn that our body is not, never was, and never will be, the problem or cause of our shame.

    31 - Owning Your Greatness

    31 - Owning Your Greatness

    Greatness isn’t bigger than you, and it’s not something we do. It’s who we are.
    Greatness doesn’t favour creatives over accountants, and it doesn’t waiver or increase or decrease as a result of being more productive or by achieving more tasks in a day.
    Greatness is your birthright, and this episode explores how to tap into and access its endless channel of unwavering support and possibility.
    Many humans (myself included) learned that greatness is something to acquire or look for. We learned that it is separate from or beyond us, and we learned to trust these ideas over our own knowing.
    In today’s episode, I will help you appreciate, access and reclaim your greatness, without having to hustle harder, work longer hours, change your body, or go on a ‘journey’ of self-discovery.
    If you resonate with this episode and the ways I teach then my 9-month Heal her program will serve you deeply. Apply here no later than October 30th 2020. It would be an honour to work with you, love.

    30 - Dismantling Diet Culture

    30 - Dismantling Diet Culture

    In today’s episode, I gently unpack diet culture and why we feel like our body is never enough and what to do about it.
    Diet culture is a belief system that emotionally and psychologically manipulates us into believing that our body and it’s shape and size, is the reason we are not happy/healthy/worthy.
    It encourages us to trade our intuition and joy for rules, deprivation and self-punishment to meet an ‘ideal’ standard that is, for almost all of humanity, unachievable and unsustainable.
    In this episode, I gently unpack diet culture and offer some insight and tools to help you liberate yourself from diet culture conditioning, so you can begin reclaiming your power in the area of your body and overall well-being.
