    Returning to Our Roots, Caring for the Earth, and Living as Nature

    Returning to Our Roots, Caring for the Earth, and Living as Nature

    If there is one truth, it is this: we are nature. Today’s episode begins with a meditation to remind you of that. You will physically connect with the ground below you and energetically imagine your roots going deep into the earth.
    Rachel then continues to discuss the craving she has had lately to fully immerse herself in nature: to grow her own food, to drink water from a natural spring, to spark her own fires. We tend to look at nature as a remedy to our lives, but we might be seeing things from the wrong direction. 
    Nature may be calling us home. If you are longing for a different life, today’s episode will plant the seed on how to embrace who you really are on a cellular level. What you are longing for may be right outside your front door.

    Why Being Close to Nature Is Being Close To Your Most Authentic Self

    Why Being Close to Nature Is Being Close To Your Most Authentic Self

    There are many transits moving in the sky right now. If you’ve been feeling out of touch with yourself - that could be why! But today’s episode is here to bring you back home in more ways than one.

    Beginning with a meditation to connect to earth, Rachel then dives into the true concept of home. Why are there some places that just don’t feel like home? How can a physical location make us feel more like ourselves? What other versions of us are hiding within?

    As Rachel prepares for her move to Sweden, she recognizes the truth that Aruba just hasn’t felt like home lately. The life she pictured here didn’t turn out as planned - or maybe her inner self didn’t want it to.

    Home beckons to us. We can sense it when we move slowly, thoughtfully, and in tune with nature. Don’t get so busy or so caught up in life that you forget to actively participate in what you create. It all begins and ends with Mother Earth. Tune in for an episode that will remind you who you really are.

    Your Chosen Family: Near, Far, but Always There

    Your Chosen Family: Near, Far, but Always There

    Everywhere you go becomes a part of you somehow. In today’s episode, Rachel’s journey to Costa Rica is ending as she mourns the recent loss of someone very dear to her heart. Recognizing the collection of chosen family she has scattered throughout her second home, she reminisces on stories from the past and grieves a future that will never come to be.
    But our loved ones are never very far, are they? A short trip away, a brief phone call, or locked in our subconscious and seen only in dreams - we are connected to the ones we love when it really matters. Life changes over the years, but the scattered fragments of our hearts always guide us back home when the timing is right. This episode will bask you in gratitude for your chosen family, your memories, and all the places where you belong. Don’t forget to hold them tight.

    Sometimes You Just Have to Jump: Out of Old Patterns and Into a New Life

    Sometimes You Just Have to Jump: Out of Old Patterns and Into a New Life

    Are you willing to risk losing it all for the life you are meant to live? In today’s episode, Rachel is experiencing a full circle moment. She shares the story of leaving Sweden as a teen, finding herself in Costa Rica, everything she lost by making that decision, and how much more she gained. Now, many years later, she finds herself in a similar situation. But this time, she’s in Costa Rica just before moving back to Sweden. Standing on the edge of the same waterfall she stood at fourteen years ago, terrified to her core, she jumps.
    Because sometimes that’s just what we have to do. We have to jump off waterfalls, drop old patterns, and dive straight into a brand-new life. It takes an incredible amount of courage to put things aside for a dream, or to make impossible decisions in the hope of a better tomorrow. Are you willing to do it? Tune in to find out.
