    Remembering the Spark with the Fire Element and Summer Season with Christina Cecconi

    Remembering the Spark with the Fire Element and Summer Season with Christina Cecconi

    The inevitability of our human experience is that we will, at some point, lose sight of our purpose. When we are misaligned with purpose, we get pulled into the vortex of addictions, avoidant/anxious attachment strategies and generally feeling disempowered in our own lives. On the flip side, when we can identify and make explicit what our purpose is, have a sense of what drives us, understand what lights us up with bliss, we are able to settle into what our Dao is. 


    In today’s conversation, Chinese Medicine Practitioner Christina Cecconi (who also happens to be one of my besties) and I explore the Fire Element and Summer Season. As humans, we are naturally drawn to the fire element. It is the metaphorical element for what connects us and what destroys us. And because of this, it is also the element that represents our Dao. 




    What You'll Learn in this Episode: 


    What does “Dao” mean and why the Fire Element is the Element of the DaoThe balance of Divine Masculine and Feminine The need for a container to express emotionsThe unhealthy chasing of bliss leading to addictionsHow the Fire Organs protect the Heart

    Reclaim Power by Taking Responsibility with Author + Personal Transformation Coach Christian de la Huerta

    Reclaim Power by Taking Responsibility with Author + Personal Transformation Coach Christian de la Huerta

    Did you know that 90-95% of our actions are driven from our subconscious programming? This is exaaaaactly why we tend to find ourselves in the same cycles over and over and over again - choosing the same archetype of a partner, finding yourself in the same rut of feeling devalued at work or having the same arguments over and over again with your loved ones. 


    Part of the journey to unraveling our patterns of suffering is to become conscious, cultivate presence and reclaim your power by taking responsibility for your life.


    That sounds intimidating, doesn’t it? 


    That’s why I invited Christian de la Huerta to help me break these concepts down into digestible, implementable practices. Christian is a spiritual teacher, personal transformation coach and leading voice in the breathwork community with 30 years of experience. He has traveled the world offering transformational retreats combining psychological and spiritual teachings with lasting and life-changing effects. He is an award-winning, critically acclaimed author, spoken at numerous universities and conferences and even on the TEDx stage. His new book  “Awakening the Soul of Power” was described by multiple Grammy Award–winner Gloria Estefan as “a balm for the soul of anyone searching for truth and answers to life’s difficult questions.” 


    What You'll Learn in this Episode: 
    Reclaiming power by taking responsibilityAnchoring practices if you are at the beginning of your consciousness journeyUnconventional ways to create an access point to presenceThe difference between evolutionary fear and Ego-based fearTurning the lens within to examine your own cyclical patterns instead of blaming others

    Uncaging the Good Girl with Certified Master Level Coach Holly Toronto

    Uncaging the Good Girl with Certified Master Level Coach Holly Toronto

    One of the most profound shifts I’ve made in my spiritual practice is understanding that it is a subtractive process, rather than an additive one. The simplest way to explain this is that you can approach spirituality thinking that you are not whole, needing to be fixed and grasping for the next modality, teacher, guru or tool to hold you together OR you can approach spirituality with the intention of remembering who your True Self is. 

    When you do this, you can clearly see the  stories, narratives and conditions that you used to create a sense of safety and belonging in your life. And when you approach spirituality from this perspective, it’s pretty simple. It’s about shedding those layers of survival strategies to get to who you always were underneath it all. 


    In today’s episode, I discuss one of the most common archetypal identities that our Egos create to help us feel useful, validated and worthy of love: The Good Girl.  I asked my good friend Holly Toronto to help me explore this idea because as you’ll hear in her story, she’s had quite the heroine’s journey along this path of soothing her Good Girl and reclaiming her True Self. 
    From her evangelical Christian upbringing, she was conditioned to give others the moral authority to judge what would deem her good and worthy of acceptance. Her work of shedding layers upon layers manifested in her needing to explore this shadow side of herself even as she released her identity as a Christian.  


    What You'll Learn in this Episode: 
    The Archetype of the “Good Girl” and how she serves in early childhood     The danger of allowing other people to decide our goodness    How to stand in our own integrity when we are “called out” and told we are a “bad girl”What it feels like somatically to stand in integrity The invitational nature of triggers for deeper healing and explorationSlowing down the pace of personal development work to actually be nourished by it

    Healing Your Emotions by Listening to Your Gut with Integrative Alignment Practitioner Brian Donahoe

    Healing Your Emotions by Listening to Your Gut with Integrative Alignment Practitioner Brian Donahoe

    I am so excited to introduce my new friend Brian Donahoe to you. He and I will be doing an entire series diving into the different organ systems, how stress affects the different organ systems and what they are physiologically and emotionally holding onto so you can transform your Story. 
    These conversations will go to the root of what I mean when I say “the Body is the storyteller of your life”. Because once we accept this concept, the next logical question is: “What the hell is my Body trying to tell me?” 

    We start this week with the Digestive System. 


    What You’ll Learn: 
    Dispelling the myth that the brain is the most intelligent organ in the body The relationship between stress and the digestive system The physiological and emotional energetics of each of the organs of the digestive system Why there is a power dynamic in doctor-patient relationships and who benefits from that system (Spoiler: it’s not you or your body) The unintended consequences of believing our Bodies are machinery with infinite energyResources:

    Your Body is the Storyteller of Your Life with Acupuncturist Tracey Stevens

    Your Body is the Storyteller of Your Life with Acupuncturist Tracey Stevens

    I am someone who lives in the world of both/and. Meaning, I find deep value for the scientific research being done to explain the structure, functionality and physiology of our Bodies, BUT I believe we cannot take our finger off the pulse of the Spirit and Dao that courses through these temporary vessels we call our Bodies. 
    Our bodies are the storytellers of our lives. But are we really listening? 
    More and more of us are turning towards traditional cultural lineages of healing for guideposts of how to feel more at home in our bodies. Because we need both the microscope and the telescope to connect the dots on how to be safe, whole and embodied. 
    I’ve invited Tracey Stevens to share her wisdom about these intangible narratives that run through our physical cells. Tracey is also someone who lives in the world of both/and.
    She has worked in the health industry for over 30 years. She started out in western medicine as an Occupational Therapist later trained in Five Element Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy, Past Life Regression Therapy and Compassionate Inquiry.  Like Alice falling down the rabbit hole she has been on a deep metaphysical journey resulting in her practice today which specializes in helping people understand the emotional root cause of their physical problems. 


    What You'll Learn in this Episode: 
    Stoking curiosity about our Body to reclaim the medicine of alignmentThe history of colonialism and the fracturing of mind-body-spirit medicineHow the Body speaks through metaphorsThe potency of healing through stories
