    Her leap off the ”people-pleasing corporate ladder” was messy AF and worth it. With CJ Berg

    Her leap off the ”people-pleasing corporate ladder” was messy AF and worth it. With CJ Berg

    Chloe Jean (CJ) struggled with what she thought she was giving up when she dove head first off the corporate ladder…for months it was messy and she was miserable. She quit because she couldn’t live one more moment feeling stuck and alone. And although she felt empowered by her decision, she had no idea where she was headed. It was not until she found a way to let go of the turmoil and pain, was she able to drop in and trust the experience fully. 

    Looking back now, she can see exactly why she had to go through every ounce of angst…she can see how every hot mess moment led to a deeper awareness of who she really was (and wanted to be), immense growth and ultimately her calling as a Soul Therapist.

    Early on in her life as a leader in the corporate world, she had developed a strong people-pleasing muscle…founded in fear of confrontation and being truly seen. Then, with the support of one of her many guides, she woke up to the fact that what she had been habitually taking “personally”, what was in fact none of her concern!

    When you’re drive to succeed leads to overwhelm…Clarity is key! With guest Kerry Heaps

    When you’re drive to succeed leads to overwhelm…Clarity is key! With guest Kerry Heaps

    Knowing she was a born entrepreneur meant to blaze a trail, my guest Kerry took to the stage to share her message! While finding and fumbling her way through the speaking world, she realized how complicated and convoluted that industry can be. And even though she struggled, she trusted that her intense drive to succeed and the clarity of her message, would get her where she wanted to go. 

    She ran into some deep ruts and obstacles, which she took as a sign that she was meant to dig in deeper. And after mastering the steps it takes to be seen, heard and valued as a speaker, she turned to help others climbing the speaking ladder to help them make sense of the complexity of the speaking world.

    Kerry’s story takes some interesting twists and turns and through it all she learned how to appreciate herself, her struggles and most importantly that every message, big or small, matters!

    Her brain injury led to the realization that healing is not about fixing. With Brooke White

    Her brain injury led to the realization that healing is not about fixing. With Brooke White

    My guest Brooke White, of Kalidescope Art & Energy, first discovered her connection with spirit and her true self after a devastating experience. Her path from Hot Mess to Awesomeness had many ups and downs through relationships and beyond what she had long been conditioned to believe was the norm. 

    Following her head injuries and the realization of her business Kalidescope (her spirit self), she noticed that she could feel the vibration of rocks and crystals with intensity. This connection to energy and vibrational healing led her to the realization that healing is not about fixing. True healing is about choosing love even amidst feelings of fear and being reminded that you are already whole, brilliant and perfect exactly as you are.

    Now as an intuitive, sensitive and knowledgeable in energy and humans. she inspires, empowers and, supports humans to release what no longer serves their best interest through art, energy healing and embodiment practices. 

    “You are worthy and when you choose to to embark on your own healing journey, you can live a reality that reflects your heart’s desire.”

    Her baby steps out of grief lead to meaning, purpose and JOY! With guest Meg Wallace

    Her baby steps out of grief lead to meaning, purpose and JOY! With guest Meg Wallace

    Meg taught for 15 years, and as a teacher, she traveled with her husband and young son exploring all the world had to offer. When her mother was diagnosed with brain cancer she came home to care for her and stepped into a life she didn’t recognize.

    She committed every waking minute that she wasn’t at work to supporting her mother. And the only word she could use to describe that time was misery. 

    When her mother passed and the time came for her to re-engage with her life and her family, she hoped that the misery she had been feeling would fall away as she processed her grief. And sadly that was not the case. 

    She quickly realized that her teaching career no longer offered her the wonder and marvel she’d experienced during her travels. And after months of struggling with what she wanted to do and more importantly with who she was, she found the courage to explore her photography career and asked her boss for a leave. 

    He said no. And on that very same day her 6 year old son Fynn perished in a freak accident. She never returned to work and from that moment on her life would never be the same.

    Meg’s journey through and beyond grief is truly inspiring. Listen, lean in and join Meg as she describes what it was like to find meaning, purpose and JOY again!

    Living in your comfort zone leads to a false sense of safety! With guest Rose Rising

    Living in your comfort zone leads to a false sense of safety! With guest Rose Rising

    Rose is an abduction survivor, now a coach, guide and goddess mentor dedicated to helping women discover their own inner light. Ascending from trauma, Rose has tapped into her deepest resiliency and positivity to become a much-needed maternal presence for the women of the world. Through her experiences and her unique ability to support others, Rose has created a prosperous future for herself and her six children.

    In this amazing and beautiful conversation, my guest Rose unveils for us the moment she realized that she had spent years trapped inside a captivity mindset. And she walks us through how she was able to open herself up to a life of healing and growth. In the years following her abduction, Rose managed to create a safe (small) life for herself and her children. 

    In that time, she faced and managed to overcome a myriad of almost insurmountable obstacles (tune into Ep. 53 to hear about the specifics of her journey) and it wasn’t until September 11th, 2001 that she realized that the safe world she had worked so hard to create was no longer going to be enough to get her through the guaranteed uncertainty of the future. 

    Amidst the absolute chaos of 9-11 while working in the media industry, she struggled with her responsibilities to her children (who were safe) and the public she served through her work. During that time she realized that the comfort zone she had come to rely on was no longer serving her. 

    Going home after that day, which felt like a lifetime, she realized that for years she was still living as a captive …  and that her only option now was to break out of her comfort zone and grow!

    Failing to fit in is THE sign that you‘re going in the right direction! With Natasha Allan-Zaky

    Failing to fit in is THE sign that you‘re going in the right direction! With Natasha Allan-Zaky

    5 years ago, standing in her kitchen, my guest Natasha heard herself say out loud...I HATE MYSELF!

    She struggled for decades to fit in, believing she didn’t belong anywhere and that there was something inherently wrong with her. As she grew older, she slowly started to realize that her individuality was a strength. However, it took time and a number of almost unimaginable and painful experiences before she could fully embrace and take full responsibility for her life, and ultimately for her happiness.

    Natasha realized, in that powerful moment in the kitchen, that she just didn’t have time to heal..and because she was holding on to so much pain, her anger would erupt like a volcano. Looking into the faces of her children, she knew that this pattern, which had never really served her, would ultimately hurt them.

    Throughout her healing journey she uncovered a deep strength, a knowing of her worth and now she absolutely loves herself! Her path took many ups and downs and through her podcast and coaching she shares her learning experiences with other open hearted parents who are looking to heal their wounds so that her children won’t have to.

    Natasha’s story really hits home for me as someone who long believed I didn’t belong anywhere! If you’ve struggled for too long feeling like you don’t fit in, take the time to listen, lean in and be reminded that you matter. You’re not alone my friend!!
