    Episode 100: F*CK GOALS

    Have we missed the point of understanding what drives us instead of where we are driving to? Goals Vs. Values

    We live in a very goal and milestone centric society. We teach it in our schools and homes. They show up in our relationships, our work, our friendships, our families. They drive competitions and fuel comparison culture.

    There is an importance to having goals and milestones- they are destination points. Even though they keep moving and changing they serve us as motivation factors.

    The question is, are we going where we really want to be going?
    Are those goals really ours?
    Do we know what is driving us to those goals?

    A lot of our goals and milestones we have are learned, not self-discovered. So, why is it important to understand that the goals are actually not important?
    Why should we shift our main focus to understanding and identifying what drives us? Our values.

    Checkin' Internalized Toxic Positivity

    Checkin' Internalized Toxic Positivity

    What is toxic positivity? Toxic positivity is the belief that no matter how crappy something is, no matter what uncomfortable emotions we are feeling, no matter what the situation is- people need to find the “positive” side things and find a more positive mindset.

    The phrase “toxic positivity” has been popping up a lot lately, a lot more than it had been. Yet, it has always existed- the thinking has always existed. We are just calling it what it is now.

    Sometimes it is really obvious when toxic positivity shows up in the language or actions of people- “good vibes only”...”keep calm”....”don’t worry, be happy”. However, there are so many other ways that toxic positivity shows up in our lives, in fact I would say we have been conditioned to feel through life WITH a toxic positivity lens.

    How does it show up? Where does it show up? How is it affecting our growth and healing? How does it affect the space we create for others with their growth and healing?

    Let's talk about it.

    Rebecca Kennedy: Journey to Body Positivity

    Rebecca Kennedy: Journey to Body Positivity

    Body image issues are more common than we think and more than we openly discuss. The fitness and diet culture remind us of this constantly. Rebecca Kennedy has lived through the toxic side of those issues and that culture and now she is changing it by example.

    Rebecca Kennedy is a ACSM Certified Personal Trainer & NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist based in downtown Orlando, Florida.

    After struggling with being overweight (borderline obese) the majority of her life, she jumped into the fitness world head first - not knowing at all how toxic and extreme the fitness field can be. After losing a significant amount of weight, she spiraled into the world of eating disorders, body dysmorphia and obsessiveness over achieving the “perfect” body. It wasn’t until she hit rock bottom and started recovery that she recognized what she wanted, what would truly make her happy: balance.

    We all create images of how we want to look, how we want to be, and who we want to be.
    How far do we go with that?
    How much do we focus on the images of ourselves we are creating instead of how we feel?

    How much self-acceptance lives in those places?

    How much self-compassion is included?

    How much self-love are you feeling in that mind space?

    Check yourself.

    Understanding the Inner Critic

    Understanding the Inner Critic

    The inner critic is what we call that inner voice that judges, criticizes and shames us. The thoughts surrounding actions, interactions, reactions, our choices and our behaviors- which can be harsh. We might hate on the inner critic for screwing with our self-esteem and our confidence, so in our self-awareness journey we might be convinced to get rid of the inner critic and those thoughts.
    Is that ultimately helpful though?

    Plot twist: The inner critic is not our enemy. Those thoughts are not our enemy.

    So why not choose a different way to view that inner critic that lives in you and your thoughts?

    Time for a self-check on checking in and understanding your inner critic.

    Kerri Hummingbird: Understanding the Mother Wound

    Kerri Hummingbird: Understanding the Mother Wound

    What is the mother wound? Who does it affect? How does it show up?

    The mother wound is not a specific diagnosis but it is something that affects us all.

    We are all born of a mother- and there are generations of beliefs and behaviors that get passed down from that. The roles mothers played in the past and in different cultures, how they survived to protect themselves and their children, how that affects the children they raise, and how it continues to get passed down in sons and daughter.

    The mother wound.

    In this episode I sat down to chat with Kerri Hummingbird- a soul guide, shamanic healer, inspirational speaker, teacher and author of the new book “Love is Fierce: Healing the Mother Wound”. We explored her discovery of how the mother wound showed up in her life, and the self-discovery journey she chose through the intentional healing of the mother wound.

    Kerri Hummingbird is the best-selling author of the books “Love is Fierce: Healing the Mother Wound”, “From We to Me: Emerging Self After Divorce” and “Awakening to Me: One Woman’s Journey to Self-Love.” She’s also the creator, the host, and the soul of the podcast “The Soul Nectar Show”.

    Sunil Godse: Cultivating Intuition

    Sunil Godse: Cultivating Intuition

    Intuition is a form of knowledge that appears in consciousness without obvious choice or thought.

    It is not magical but rather a tool in which our impressions are produced from an unconscious place in our mind- formed from our past experiences and our cumulative unseen knowledge.

    If you are like me, then there were a lot of messages you got growing up to NOT trust your intuition. Building that trust in ourselves, and understanding what that intuition looks like and feels like to us, requires some assistance.

    In this episode I sat down with the Founder of The Intuitionology Project- Sunil Godse to explore cultivating our intuition.

    Sunil is a well-known entrepreneur, author, coach and podcast host who has helped 1000s of people make the right decisions in their life by building and understanding their intuition.
