    What does it mean to take up space? In this vulnerable solo episode, Krista explains the emotional, physical, and psychic significance of creating boundaries and making sure your needs are met. She explains how this practice raises self worth and allows us to magnetize magic into our lives.

Episode on Narcissism with Dr. Ramani

Thank you Krista and Lindsey for all that you do and the wisdom and love you put out into the universe. I’ve been a long time listener and love and appreciate your work. You both unknowingly have been a large part of my life’s journey.

The episode with Dr. Ramani was released the day after I left my narcissistic husband. We had been together for 14 years and have 3 kids together. I’ve done a lot of self healing work in my life but now realize I purposely avoided looking deeply at his narcissistic abusive behaviour because that would mean I’d have to take action (namely leave him), which I was afraid to do. This conversation was not only enlightening but has opened me up to the first step of healing from the abuse I endured. I believe it was divine timing that I was shown this conversation at a time I needed to hear it most. Thank you, I am forever grateful 🙏
