Hello everyone, with an open heart I welcome you all to Good Vibes Sunday. My name is Astrid Reifer, an entrepreneur from California. My co-host and husband, Adam Reifer, is a former professional baseball player of nine years. After facing the death of a loved one, hitting rock bottom financially and building ourselves back up, we call this part of our lives the reset button, I decided to start this show. I really hope that you visit this podcast each week where you will find new content every Sunday. I believe that happiness is a choice we make each day, that each of us are responsible for who we choose to show up as daily. We can choose to be victims of our circumstances or we can choose to rise above them to find a lesson in every experience. I also believe that we don’t attract goodness into our lives, we radiate it, and it therefore it shows up. With this in mind, I wanted to create a place where you could come and fuel up with perspective, knowledge, positivity, gratitude and most of all love. As an interior designer, I feel like our job is to translate our client’s vision; however the the real designing begins after we leave our clients with a space that’s been laid out for them to begin building on. As a homeowner, you are the true designers of your home, and we the professionals are just here to lay the foundation of what could be the most beautiful expression of your stories. Really, what turns houses into homes are the memories we create, the words we speak, the thoughts we think, the love we share, the interactions we have, the gatherings we hold, and how well we live our lives for ourselves and for those we love. I always say that we are contagious to those around us, that we must fill ourselves up with good vibes everyday so we can spread that into our homes. So I created a place where I can be contagious to you, where I make myself completely vulnerable, where I share ideas of loving yourself so F*cking much so that you have more of it to share with those who matter. I also probe at ideas of determination, emotional intelligence, marriage, family, and so much more. Honestly, I don’t pretend to have all the answers or claim to have it all together. I don't aim to live a trial free life, instead I am here to speak up about the challenges I have faced that have activated latent potential. Along with my own experiences, I will share other's stories that touch the heart, that reinforce the principles I live by, and who inspire me to live a more purposeful life. My intention for every guest is to provoke culture changing, mindset driven and vulnerable conversations. Don't worry I also throw in some designer tips and fun home stuff into the mix. Once again, thank you for joining me on this journey of feeding our souls and our homes with good vibes.

    One Must Become It To Have It:With James Shelby

    One Must Become It To Have It:With James Shelby

    Our #goodvibesunday guest this week is James Shelby.

    James is a real estate agent based out of Temecula California, he’s a master at branding himself, he’s built an amazing team that’s ready to take care of all client’s real estate needs, and has he’s become a huge inspiration to Adam and I. Most people would think that realtors don’t support other realtors, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The reality is that there is enough of a market share out there for all of those who work their tails off to get after it. And surrounding ourselves with other like-minded folks is what Adam and I live for, James is definitely one of those people. We love watching him and his sweet girls through Instagram and enjoy the thrill of getting to know how his life practices propel him upward in business. Today we talk all about these practices, we probe into business, mindset, and dig deep into the impact meditation, gratitude, and affirmations have had in his life.

    Ep. 43 Designing From The Inside Out With Whittney Parkinson

    Ep. 43 Designing From The Inside Out With Whittney Parkinson

    Our #goodvibesunday guest this week is an interior designer and friend, Whittney Parkinson. Inheriting a passion for design and architecture from her father, an architect, she discovered her life’s purpose early on. Growing up in the midwest, she combined her educational background in art and interior design to establish her company Whittney Parkinson Design in Indiana. From new build construction to whole home renovations Whittney and her team have clients covered. If you see a space layered with modern and traditional styles, and a symphony of dusty hues, that most likely is our girl Whittney. We would describe her spaces as a fusion between sophisticated and timeless, but also functional and meant to be lived in.

    In the design-Instagram world, Whittney is best known for a kitchen she designed that went viral. I’ll personally say that I’ve never seen quite cabinets like the ones she used in this kitchen. She really knocked it out of the park you guys ( See Image Below ). That was when the instagram community took notice of her work, however Whittney has been designing incredible spaces for years and continues to leave us all in awe of her potential.

    When she’s not designing, she’s enjoying her days with her husband Austin and her sweet girl Wren.

    As beautiful as her designs are she has a soul to match. Today we get to highlight it. I’m blessed to know Whittney and call her a friend, my intention is for all of you is to get to know the inspiration behind all her beautiful work, the reality of being a mama and wife running a business, what her advice is for new designers; but as always it’s Good Vibes Sunday so we dig a little deeper about the pressures that come from social media, and what kind of impact that has on designers. We also, get real about marriage, family and so much more.

    Ep. 42 Candid Sunday : Let's Not Live Flatline Lives

    Ep. 42 Candid Sunday : Let's Not Live Flatline Lives

    I have to say out of all my #candidsundays , this one by far defines candid more than any I’ve done. I talk all about the highs and lows we all deal with, how this period of my life is really testing me and how it has all affected my mood. I also get raw about how overdoing is catching up to me and affecting my relationships.

    Ep. 41 12 Steps To Make Your Home A Sanctuary ( Recap )

    Ep. 41 12 Steps To Make Your Home A Sanctuary ( Recap )

    Since I’ve started Good Vibes Sunday, our listener base has grown substantially. I was thinking the other day how I wish some of my new listeners could gain some insights from some of my favorite past episodes. Exactly one year ago I created the episode 12 Steps To Make Your Home A Sanctuary, and today I resurface that one. By now you all know that I live a holistic style of life and I bring the practices into fruition in my home. This episode is all about creating homes that serve our family and our souls.

    How do you feel when you walk into your home? Happy? Calm? Overwhelmed by your 'to do' list? Or are you like me who used to feel anxious about wanting everything in my home to look perfect and untouched? In today's hectic world stress is always present, but your home shouldn't contribute to it. "Your home either nurtures and supports you or it depletes your energy and leaves you exhausted," says interior designer, conscious living expert and founder and CEO of Home and Harmony Lifestyle, Christa O'Leary. "In today's frenetic world it is more important than ever to create a calm and peaceful space that allows you to recharge."

    Ep. 40 Striking Out Cancer With Jason Motte

    Ep. 40 Striking Out Cancer With Jason Motte

    Our Good Vibes Sunday Guest this week is Jason Motte. He’s a recently retired baseball player and founder of The Jason Motte Foundation. He started his career as a catcher then switched over to pitching. He’s played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies and Atlanta Braves. He says that baseball was what he did and although he loved the game, it wasn’t who he was. His true purpose is to be of service through his and his wife Caitlin’s foundation. They’ve teamed up with 108 Stitches, a sports apparel company, to come up with a line that stands for striking out cancer. There is one ambassador for each team in major league baseball who helps bring awareness to cancer.

    The seed for the Jason Motte Foundation was planted in the fall of 2010 when Jason and Caitlin Motte asked, “what can we do to help?” At the time, Caitlin’s grandfather, Lynn Doyle, was a cancer patient at The West Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee. Jason and Caitlin saw a sign that mentioned a need for blankets and wondered what more they could do to help. That question led to the formation of the Strike Out Cancer with Jason Motte Foundation and several projects including the annual Strike Out Cancer with Jason Motte.

    The Motte family uses the money raised towards research all while providing comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds.

    So many people avoid talking about heavy subjects like cancer, but what if for once we stop trying to pretend like it doesn’t exist? What if we open that dialog and learn from cancer? I heard this quote once, “ When you learn how to die, you’ll learn how to live.” Which translates to the question “ If you were told you had one month to live would you spend it complaining or doing something meaningful?”

     Today we talk to Jason about his foundation but as always it’s good vibes Sunday so we dive a little deeper into the idea that we can learn how to live purposeful lives through the lens of cancer. Jason explains that although money, status, and fame are all blessings and signposts along the way,they aren’t the answer behind fulfilling our lives purpose on earth. That when cancer strikes, none of those things matter. I don’t think we could have had a better guest on to help us bring in the holidays and fill our hearts and minds with perceptive

    Ep. 39 Candid Sunday: Judgment Detox

    Ep. 39 Candid Sunday: Judgment Detox

    On today’s #candidsunday I talk all about something Adam and I are going through in this chapter of our lives, and that most people go through at some point in their lives, judgment. Everyone has either judged or been judged, today we dive deep into the reasons people point fingers and throw stones. We go further in by revealing our personal experiences with judgment to support the idea that people who judge come from a place of lack. Even more so that the lacking begins within, and is defined by not enough confidence, self-love, courage and so on. We also juggle with the reasons why those closest to us, family and friends, judge us when we most need their support.
