    The Fragility of Life: Immense Love, Deep Belonging, and Anchoring Into Good When Things Get Hard

    The Fragility of Life: Immense Love, Deep Belonging, and Anchoring Into Good When Things Get Hard

    Some days more than others we are hit with just how fragile life is. Our experience on this earth is fleeting - and nothing is guaranteed. If you’ve felt untethered lately, this episode will anchor you back into belonging, gratitude, and purpose.
    Rachel has just returned home from a trip to Amsterdam to visit family after a hard diagnosis. She shares a bit about how lost she felt, how unfair life is sometimes, and how her family’s lives were turned upside down. It was some yarrow on the side of the road that reminded her - there is so much love present here too.
    Maybe we experience love this deeply because we know how fragile it is. Sometimes all we can do is put one foot in front of the other, take things day by day, and return to love again and again.

    Waves of Anxiety: The Journey From Panic to Peace

    If you have ever experienced anxiety or panic attacks, if you’re coping with burnout, or if you have been trying to align your life with something that better fits who you are, today’s episode is just for you.
    After a recent experience with anxiety, Rachel was thrown back into feelings from an old life. It has been years since she changed the pace of her life, moved to a different part of the world, and started slowing down enough to consider what she truly longed for. Panic attacks seemed to be a thing of the past. But with a return of these visceral feelings, she is left looking for an answer. She shares stories from the past, her coping mechanisms, and what is different today. 
    Why does anxiety return after we have done so much work on ourselves? Maybe as a full circle moment or to remind us to be grateful. Whatever the reason, if we can’t sit with it, we can tell the truth about it. Tune in to honor your own truth.

Everything

This pod is everything you ever need.
No matter the topic it seems to hit home and heart every time. It’s my favourite part of each week.

Mind Numbingly Bad

In the early days this podcast might of been of interest, the host was a business owner etc, but it’s since become the same drivel every week. I’ve since stopped listening because of the hosts constant repeated whining of “never feeling good enough”, “lost”, “purposeless”, “privileged”, “aimless online influencer”—EVERY WEEK—t’s depressing. There is no business the host runs anymore, the podcast topics are now all about pushing ads on people and not doing much of anything in life except reassessing her feelings over and over again ad nauseam. To boot it’s become militant on her really polarized politics to the point she wishes harm on others who don’t see to her point of view. Skip this one.
