Exploring the nature of sacred self care, self healing & the evolution of our human experience now. Our world is changing, we are changing, & choosing to become more of ourselves. In Season 3 & 4 Christine Pensa explores heart expanding topics with brilliant guests to empower your sacred self care & deeper knowing of your infinite self.
Episode 175 Saying goodbye to gurus by deepening into reverence and respect
How do we navigate these times when many people, practices and teachings are being revealed to be less than authentic and actually doing harm. How do we come to a place of reverence and respect for the true way showers without giving our own power away.
First, we can choose to resolve judgement and resistance within ourselves. Noticing if we are dis-honouring ourselves, our own power, then perhaps expressing it as opposition to another person. Forgiving ourselves for misunderstanding the nature of past teachings which might have diminished us. We can choose to dismantle the hierarchy within ourselves, freeing us from a pyramid style scheme of spirituality which sees us at the bottom always striving to get somewhere.
Next, we can allow ourselves to truly witness each other, which leads to self reverence and respect, removing the programs that stand in our way. Then we can open our hearts to the many authentic and powerful teachers and mentors in our lives whose powerful light can heighten our own illumination. Witnessing the sacredness of all the beings embodying here now.
We become the sentinels, holding strong the gates of our own expression of love through our own source. Heralding the arrival of beauty, truth, love, freedom, joy and wonder we are ready to co-create here, now.

Episode 174 We are here now to cast nothing but LIGHT
It seems fitting that this fall I begin a new season, officially season 6, as it feels like a new world, filled with powerful new beginnings.
After a long hiatus the podcast is back with a brand new episode—because NOW is the time to cast nothing but light. What does that mean for us to cast nothing but light? It is a choice to live, move and experience through the light of ourselves. We’re learning how.
In this way of operating we also cast no shadow. We create no division and harm and instead live from the knowing of who we truly are. We turn up the volume on our own connection to our own source. We turn down the volume of the cacophony of what is going on in the external world. We become clear about what service without shadow is for each of us.
Feeling the call to meet ourselves in our brilliant interior silence, we are tuning back into the truth felt deeply within our body core. We remember we know, our bodies know, we are here to birth life, to birth light.
~Love Songs to the Earth~
The time is now beloved
To use the power of your voice
To sing once again
Your sacred love songs
to this Earth
WITH THIS EARTH

(Fyi for those that love numerology; The number 6 is the embodiment of the heart. It represents unconditional love and the ability to support, nurture, and heal. It is a powerful force of compassion and empathy and its warm light is a beacon of hope. Its role is to use its heart and soul to be of service to others.)

Episode 173 Please Free me to be Misunderstood 2
An updated reprise of episode 150 outlining the continued importance of freeing yourself to be misunderstood as a powerful self love practice.
Being misunderstood is a primal wound many of us are experiencing in these times. Freeing ourselves to be misunderstood is part of the powerful and profound work we can do right now on our beautiful planet.
It’s time to stop plucking at the leaves of what isn’t working and get to the roots. Trusting the truth that comes from the core of our own purity is to release the patterns and programs of the need to be accepted and understood for who we are.
The invitation of this episode is to explore where you have limited your expression because you were feeding the real need to be cared for—by sacrificing the love and trust of your own self—and the purity of your personal instructions. Noticing now, where you learned, or were programmed to keep yourself small in order to be accepted. What did you do to fill that wound.
Sacred self care, self love, and trust is a powerful practice that begins with your own deep knowing of who you are and what you are meant to be NOW.

Episode 172 What's common is not necessarily "normal" (a reprise episode with Dr. Brianne Grogan)
As my summer hiatus continues, I am bringing forward past episodes that present themselves for another listen. This one came through a number of synchronicities. As I explained in the new introduction, I found great value in re-listening to this one and was able to deepen into the message Dr. Brianne Grogan shared.
The original episode was titled; The Practical Magic of the Pelvic Floor with Dr. Brianne Grogan
The episode was not just about pelvic health, it was about how we can open our consciousness to include more of what we choose for our own bodies and our own health.
My powerful guest was Dr. Brianne Grogan who brings forward a treasure trove of wisdom for best practices for vital health and a life well lived—therefore, practical magic.
As Dr. Bri shared, the pelvic floor is the epicentre for so many of the body’s operations. We discussed bio-tensegrity a whole body approach. When one part of the body is compromised, the entire structure responds to balance out the problem. Many of us are still responding to the symptoms that might show up and not getting to the root of the issue. Learning more about the foundational aspect of the pelvic floor in particular brings us back into awareness first, and then control of our body’s vital health. That’s the practical. The magic comes in when we recognize that much of what we have accepted about our health and wellness may simply be an outdated belief system that is ready to be released. The invitation is to explore what beliefs you might be holding and what you have accepted as truth that might not be. Stepping into your own knowing and finding the right formula for yourself.
Dr. Bri has devoted herself to helping others understand their bodies through her incredible, accessible, information rich YouTube channel, Dr. Bri’s Vibrant Pelvic Health. She says that beginning with an awareness of the hidden anatomy of the pelvic floor (which most of us were not taught about) is key to understanding and trusting this part of our body and how it corresponds to our overall health. Many of the issues that result from pelvic floor dysfunction are very “common” but that doesn’t mean that they are okay or that we need to live with them. Gaining self awareness and understanding allows us to take the reigns back with confidence. We become adept at weaving the practical and the magical into the tapestry of our own embodiment.
As Bri says, It’s the challenges that change you and there are gifts in every challenge. I encourage every woman listening to go to Dr. Bri’s website to learn more, to visit her YouTube channel and in particular to watch the two videos she made on the basics of pelvic floor anatomy and health, and to tune into all parts of your own body to inner stand and choose the best for your own radiant health and joy-full living now!

Episode 171 Choosing is your superpower, a reminder episode
This is in part a repeat episode from September 2021 (episode 139). The theme is our power to choose. It’s coming around again! It is ever more important to deepen into your knowing of what is true, because saying no can be a yes to more of you.
The original episode was inspired by you, the listeners, who call forward what wants to be heard, and by an instagram post on neutrality. The post came from Dr. Lori Earley and she said in her account @phoenixrising medicine, "Neutrality is not an option."
What are we choosing in this moment, at this pivotal time on the planet? When chaos and polarities are amplified, we can retreat from that cacophony because we do not want to be pulled in directions that would seem to pull us apart. We still FEEL it because we are part of the collective.
How can we discern what is right for us in this moment? How do we navigate the external? We choose.
We don't have to choose a side, but we are being called to choose who we are. To stand in our pure love presence. To say no to what we need to say no to, to say yes to what we need to say yes to—because to not choose is to give our tacit or implied consent to whatever, or whoever, has the loudest voice.
At the end of the episode host Christine Pensa shared a short tree meditation to help you discern through metaphor the truth of you and how to use visualization to move beyond the lower frequencies that are external to you.

Episode 170 May Your True Nature continue to grow deeper roots
This is a reprise of episode 154 recorded in May of 2022, and an invitation to revisit both the episode and your own growth over the last year.
I recorded a new introduction, and just like I did, it’s a call to observe where you can expand and deepen into more of who you are as we continue to create, and grow on the Earth in these powerful times.
(from the original episode) This month is another powerful one and it is more and more noticeable that things are changing and need to change in our world. There is a deep knowing of this in our own bodies, and yet, many of us are also experiencing a recurrence of things that feel like old patterns. It’s confusing. We know we are becoming more, and we are also experiencing physical ailments, heightened emotions and loss of a sense of “reality.”
How do we practically step into becoming more of the complete self? How can we allow ourselves to be remade into our true selves? Who are we without these looping patterns? Host Christine shares some practical ideas to move through these endings so we can step more fully into ourselves.
Choosing to begin a deeper relationship with the unlimited you. Choosing to embody you, here, now is a coming home to yourself and being in a state of deep love for who you really are. Dropping the attachments no matter how safe they feel—and being very gentle with yourself as you do so.
May you always choose what is perfect for the highest frequency you in each moment. May you trust yourself. May you learn to love yourself at ever deeper levels. May you inner stand more of yourself in the deep silence of who you are. May you allow yourself to change course and direction without shame, blame or guilt. May you be free.
With love, Christine
