Podcast Diary: Magic, Synchronicity, and Trusting Our Belonging to Life.
In this episode, Jessica tries out a new style of podcasting where she channels stream-of-consciousness what's alive on her heart, which she is naming her Podcast Diary Entries.
In this episode, she talks about some major life changes + magic that has unfolded in her life, in her perception of herself, and what’s possible for her since her soul retrieval ceremony at the end of June. She shares about how her intuitive/psychic abilities have increased tenfold, how she trusts herself + her belonging to life more than ever before, and how profoundly she's been brought alive by her newfound awareness of just how magically, deeply, and intimately-guided she is (and we all are) all the time.
She also shares about the magical series of events that led to her upcoming move to North Carolina, her journey of forgiveness + reconciliation with her former partner, the deep connection, nourishment, and guidance she's found through (shamanic) journeying and plant-spirit healing, and her newly-inspired focus for her upcoming divine feminine programs + offerings.

Becoming Your Own Spiritual Authority with Samantha Burgett
In this episode, Samantha Burgett of Halycon Healer joins me on the podcast to share her story of healing from the trauma of developing psychic gifts as a child while being raised in an extremely conservative Christian family and community. After being consistently told as a child that she being personally attacked by the devil because she was experiencing extrasensory gifts beyond her control, Sam separated from herself in a way that kept her cycling in destructive and dissociative patterns for years. Her journey of returning to herself, accepting her truth, and reclaiming her own spiritual authority is nothing short of astounding.
Separation from our divine nature is the deepest trauma we can experience in this life and the way Sam has turned her own suffering into an alchemical service to others is one of the most profound stories of human resiliency I've heard in a while. During this episode, we talk about a slew of fascinating topics including: the fine line between our fears and repressed intuitive abilities, how self-abandonment leads to disease and mental health disorders, religion’s reward system for punishing and killing off the Self, the liberating power of shadow work, and the truth about seeing spirits, astral travel, and psychic abilities. If you're ready to shed the conditioning that's kept you separate from your divine intrinsic knowing, this is the episode for you.
Samantha Burgett is an author, poet, spiritual entrepreneur, and certified Holy Fire III Reiki Practitioner. A generational clairvoyant with an attraction to multidimensional healing, her passion is providing tools for people to become their own healers and expand the boundaries of their realities. From connecting with Spirit Guides and past lives, reading the Akashic Records, and designing inner-healer courses, her mission is to provide opportunities for people to heal, align, and stand in their innate divinity.

Getting Off the Hamster Wheel of Healing: MDMA and the Power of Human Connection with Gita Devi
In this episode, one of my best friends, Jayne Kucharski (Gita Devi), joins me on the podcast to share her life-changing story of participating in a MDMA-assisted psychotherapy study for healing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In this episode, she shares her story of how the sudden loss of her dad catapulted her on a journey of traveling the world alone at age 17, unsuccessfully trying every possible healing modality available to relieve her grief for years. Little did she know, the true connection + support she needed to heal would come through an unlikely opportunity in her own hometown. In the episode, we weave through a variety of topics including soul-searching in India, learning to chill with our inner ghosts, the power of taking the gentle approach, and the importance of not “overdoing” it in our healing journey. All in all, it’s a really beautiful story of healing power of human connection, and the freedom we find when we are fully met in the most unlikely places.

What It ACTUALLY Means To Be A Powerful Healer
In this episode, Jessica shares about the insights and revelations she's had on her journey of reclaiming her full humanity as a healer. She talks about how imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and image management breeds insecurity, perpetuates isolation, and strips us of our true power to serve and impact lives. She also talks how we cannot own our magic without owning our humanity, how human connection is the only thing that truly heals, and how our gifts of imperfection are our most powerful gifts of service to the world.
Additionally, she discusses the radical self-responsibility that comes with being your own healer, the conditioning we must shed, the pedestals we must remove, the projections we must own, and collective growing pains that we're experiencing in relation to our personal power as we transition from the Piscean age to the Aquarian age.
Topics covered in this episode are:
Why we need to strip the hero from the role of the healer.
What it means to lead with Shakti in the era of the feminine rising.
What truly "qualifies" you as a healer, teacher, or guide.
How we create Imposter Syndrome ourselves.
The healing power of witnessing and being witnessed.
If you're a woman who's ready to tap into the power and magic of your divine feminine nature and reclaim wild, uncharted territory within yourself, you're invited to join us for the Rewild Retreat to the Sacred Valley of Peru this February 20th-27th, 2021. Rewilding is about reclaiming the whole, free, and fearless woman that hides beneath shame and trauma we’ve experienced in our lives. This retreat is designed to bring you deeper into yourself so you can reclaim your body, rewrite your story, and EMERGE as the wild, confident, powerful goddess you’ve always been inside.

Self-Love through Story and the Wise Woman Way with Nicole Renee Matthews
In this episode, Jessica welcomes the first guest to share their story on the Luminary Woman Podcast, Nicole Renee Matthews. Nicole is a mother, partner, herbalist, and apprentice for Susun Weed of the Wise Woman Way — and also happens to be one of Jessica's best friends.
Nicole comes on to share her story as it intersects with lifestyle medicine, story medicine, the embrace of her instinctual nature, and the ongoing remembrance of the Wise Woman Way. At the heart of the conversation is the freedom that awaits us when we stop pathologizing our bodies, our childhoods, our intimate relationships, and our suffering, and finally let our hearts rest with no answer to the question why.
This episode covers:
The Heroic Tradition vs. the Wise Woman Tradition as it relates to wellness, healing, and relationships.
How the heroic model uses story as self-punishment and teaches us to relates to ourselves as projects or failures.
Daily rhythms to cultivate heart-resonance with the plant world.
The importance of extending compassion to our animal selves.
Nicole's story as to how letting go of her attempts to save her relationship saved her relationship.
If Nicole's story resonated with you and you'd like to connect or learn more about how to get started with learning the Wise Woman Way, you can find Nicole on Instagram at: @nnrlu

Soul Retrieval Part 2: Coming Up For Air
In this episode, Jessica shares about bold risk that she took to recover a sense of herself after experiencing her first symptoms of soul loss. She talks about the transformative power of travel to shift the story we're living and reconnect us to unexplored parts of who we are. She also shares about how her difficulty ending unhealthy relationships has reinforced her abandonment story over time and how outsourcing our sense of worth, in any way, is the easiest way to leak our power and expose ourselves to soul loss.
In episode covers:
— The transformative power of travel to change our mind.
— How routine and familiar environments reinforce self-protective patterns and shrink possibility in our lives.
— How the teachings of Tantra helped her relationship to grow and transform despite it's unhealthy patterns.
— How allowing one unhealthy connection can siphon energy from every sphere of our life.
— How all the external validation in the world will never satiate the longing to know ourselves as unconditional love.
