    Childhood adaptations. Adult limitations.

    Childhood adaptations. Adult limitations.

    In this episode I share how childhood adaptations become maladaptive in adulthood. The way we learn to cope with caregivers that aren't meeting our need to be whole can look like what we call self sabotage and limiting beliefs in adulthood. However they are maladaptive coping strategies and protection mechanisms.


    These patterns of behaviour can make out attempts to grow and develop our businesses feel like a threat and trigger our learnt survival responses.


    Ultimately these things limit our ability to develop self-belief - our beliefs shape our reality.


    On Friday 23rd September I will be teaching a masterclass about the skill of self belief and practical ways to create new beliefs at my Embody Your Future NOW mini virtual retreat - plus a whole lot more.

    Being your whole radiant self.

    Being your whole radiant self.

    Welcome to this beautifully nourishing conversation with Jazreena Harlow on being your radiant self.


    In this episode Jazreena and I talk about the importance of allowing ourselves to be held, why representation matters and how we are all part of a collective whole.


    We also talk about being soft and how complex it can be when you are a Black woman. We also explore the significant energy required to go against your conditioning to heal and do things in a new way.


    Jazreena is an Inner radiance and self connection coach. She is a multi passionate creative who uses a dynamic mix of modalities  (sound alchemy, human design and brand creatrix). The aim is to inspire you to step into the core essence of who you are, to live in full expression with vibrancy and truth. Jaz utilises sound healing and human design to help you feel safe enough to meet yourself in truth work and how you’re here to shine.


    At the beginning of the episode I shared some information about my, 'Essensual flow' workshop and guided meditation. You can find information here [LINK].

    Heart talk with Sas Petherick on being present.

    Heart talk with Sas Petherick on being present.

    Welcome to the first Conversations From The Heart: Heart Talk where I have the opportunity to have a heartfelt conversation with a wonderful guest.


    Conversations From The Heart: Heart Talk, begins with a body scan (you can join in too if it is safe for you to do so). The conversation is guided by whatever comes up in the moment for my guest. There are no interview questions, no set script and hardly any editing. Pauses and process time - the things that make us human are deliberately left untouched.


    In a fast-paced world of expeditious efficiency and trying to do things in the shortest time possible I offer an oasis. 


    An oasis where there is no race to hot takes or intensity. Our conversations take the time they take and my guests and I have space to be our perfectly imperfect human selves. 


    Today I am joined by my friend and resplendent human being, Sas Petherick for my first heart-led conversation.


    In this conversation, Sas and I talk about sisterhood, discernment and the precious care friendship and being a friend requires.


    We talk about the elusive nature of being present and how easily we take it for granted even though it's all we have. Sas' connection to her heart via our body scan made the preciousness of now even more apparent as she had a serious heart condition that could have had a fatal impact. Sas' tender heart reminds her of the importance of being here now and returning whenever she ventures into the past or future for too long.


    We talk about the enforced stillness of the pandemic and lessons thrust upon us by having to sit in our aloneness and begin to claim who we are. Sas shares why she is excited about this possibility.


    We also get geeky and talk about academic stuff we love!


    This is a really gentle conversation, I hope it offers you some comfort.


    A bit about Sas:

    Sas Petherick is obsessed with helping you heal your self-doubt. Sas is a Master Coach and Founder of Self-belief School and the Self-belief Coaching Academy where she teaches evidence-based approaches and proven coaching tools. Sas hosts the Courage and Spice podcast for humans with Self-doubt. You’ll find Sas on The Gram: @saspetherick.


    Also, I am excited to share that my new hybrid life and business coaching programme Emancipate your business is open for enrollment now. 


    Your business has its own life force energy that needs to be emancipated from your unmet needs so that it has enough space to serve YOU as well as your gorgeous community.

    I want to help you create a life and business that puts you and your needs at the centre. No more hiding unmet needs in business strategy that makes anxiety an unconscious (toxic) productivity tool.

    Acknowledging your courage.

    Acknowledging your courage.

    I wrote some words to share with the wonderful humans in my Sovereign group coaching programme as they are doing such courageous work to create more helpful ways of being.


    Then I thought about some of the issues in the world right now and how they can distance us from how courageous we are being as we journey towards healing our inner relationships. So I thought I would share these words with you too.


    Thank you for the inspiration Sovereign queens. I see you and honour you.

    The safety of connection

    The safety of connection

    Another day another podcast!


    Today I am talking about the difference between the protective pattern of attachment that enables us to survive and connection that allows us to feel safe.


    At the end I asked these questions:

    What does safety mean to you?

    What does safety feel like in your body? What sensations tell you you’re safe, where do you feel them?

    Who are you with when you feel these sensations of safety?

    Where are you when you feel them?

    What are you doing?


    I mention Sadie Tichelaar, Gabriella Espinonsa the Non-Linear Movement Method, Billy Ocean. 


    I also mention my Sovereign group coaching experience which is open for enrolment until Friday 17th December 2021. Details here.
