    47 - Testing Positive for Herpes Awakened My Self Love + Helped Me Heal My Body Image with Bek Antonucci

    47 - Testing Positive for Herpes Awakened My Self Love + Helped Me Heal My Body Image with Bek Antonucci

    ✨Bek is a Personal Freedom & Emotional Wellbeing Coach, Speaker, Writer and Naked Awakening Facilitator. She started as a sports coach but when she was diagnosed with a common STI - herpes - she went into a free-fall shame spiral which eventually led her on a journey of discovery and enlightenment about the virus, her body, her life and her being.



    This powerful episode is full of deep insights about the journey from external validation to truly integrated, inner acceptance. We explore the horrendous stigmas that exist around STIs and how, for Bek, this virus was a catalyst for awakening self-worth and self-love. There is so much magic in this episode and her messages, like how we can receive love for who we truly are rather than what we have or how we look. 



    Here are just a few more of the joyous and enlightening messages you will hear in this episode:



    💫 Looking beyond the negatives: Herpes has so much stigma, negative connotations and feelings of shame associated with it but it is extremely common. She wants to remove its power by breaking boundaries and creating awareness to normalise the conversation around it. She discusses how voice activation is key to our personal freedom and releasing shame.



    💫 Eating disorders and body image: By connecting with her body and listening to it, Bek has been freed from binge eating. Your body will choose what makes you feel the best, so by asking it what it wants and giving it permission, your body becomes happier and healthier.



    💫 How herpes is a virus of the mind: A huge % of the population has it but as they are a-symptomatic they have no symptoms. Even medical professionals don’t always understand it and can bring shame to an individual who is dealing with it with detrimental effects on mental health. She discusses how to break the shame cycle of an STI.



    💫 How to deal with herpes in relationships: Voice activation is key to our personal freedom and releasing shame. Bek is helping us understand how to approach a conversation about herpes with someone close to you, or a potential or current partner. She beautifully explains how this is a scary step, but ultimately a very healing and confidence-building pathway.



    💫 Self-care and holistic health practices for regular breakouts: Stress magnetises this virus. By nurturing, loving and accepting your body - not berating it - your connection with it will bring you joy and nourishment.



    💫 Body confidence: Testing positive showed her what true confidence is. Radical acceptance of what you perceive as flaws are freeing and liberating. She talks about needing to release judgement and accept who you are because avoiding emotional pain only manifests pain into your physical reality.

    45 - Where Manifestation Meets Systemic Oppression with Maryam Abdulmalik

    45 - Where Manifestation Meets Systemic Oppression with Maryam Abdulmalik

    Episode 45 is one I've wanted to create for a long time. I'm joined by the wonderful Maryam Abdulmalik to talk about how manifestation and how some of the spiritual teachings bypass barriers such as cultural oppression, systemic racism, religion, sexism and arranged marriages. Maryam helps women find their inner guide, meet their essence and find freedom from their encapsulating ‘cage’ of restrictions. She shares her own journey of manifestation and deep healing, having grown up in a culturally oppressed environment in the Middle East. She goes deep into how manifestation teachings and spiritual coaches can often "bypass" the very real (sometimes dangerous) systemic issues that people can face. She explains how it takes more than "changing your attitude" to overcome many of these hurdles, as well as enlightening us with deeper techniques and processes where manifestation CAN apply to people in different circumstances. I love how deep we go into the nuances of this topic and I think it will shed a lot of light on it for anyone else who has ever wondered if the manifestation conversation bypasses issues like privilege and racism.



    With a shared deep-rooted passion for emotional and spiritual healing, we are discussing how women can find true sovereignty and freedom from systemic oppression, exploring manifestation and asking difficult questions such as:



    ✨Where do people with restrictions, danger, constraints stand in the conversation of manifestation? 



    ✨What did the cage of cultural oppression look like for Maryam?



    ✨What was the fallout of her evolution and how did she deal with that?



    ✨How can we address the cages we’re oppressed by?



    ✨How can our spiritual being validate and guide us when our human self doesn’t want to deal with our healing process?



    ✨How does Maryam’s theory relate to the current trauma and very real social and race struggles people are going through?



    ✨How can we honour our individual roadmaps and follow our own self-discovery process by finding our own wisdom?

    44 - Palliative Cancer Helped Me Heal My Life + Set My Soul Free with Em Deacon

    44 - Palliative Cancer Helped Me Heal My Life + Set My Soul Free with Em Deacon

    When Em Deacon discovered a 10cm lump in her breast she feared the worst. Inexplicably it was worse than she had feared - the cancer had already spread to her liver, spine and neck. At just thirty years old, with a one-year-old daughter, she was told treatment would be palliative and was given three and a half years to live. It shattered her world. She had no risk factors and no family history so she was utterly thrown by the extent of it. It felt like life was over for her.



    But she has turned this whole viewpoint upside down. Three years later she is living with stage 4 "incurable" cancer and is now a completely different person - happier, more fulfilled, stronger and healthier than ever before. Her diagnosis was the portal for her awakening. Her story will absolutely, fucking inspire you.



    Here is just some of what you will hear:



    💫 Her healing process: She encourages us to think as intuitive individuals, look inside ourselves to figure out our own bodies and how best to manage our self-care.



    💫  Body image: Treatment changed Em’s physical body and appearance in so many ways. She is grateful to be alive regardless of any disfiguring but she still has days where it is tough and she struggles with the changes to her image. We unravel this.



    💫 Trauma release: She wants everyone to know that there is no “normal”; everyone has trauma on some level. She shares vulnerably how some of her childhood experiences may have physically manifested in her body.



    💫 Parenting: Em shares that cancer has been a blessing in terms of mothering. It has removed fear and bought clarity. She shares what it is like bringing up a young daughter, not knowing how long she will be around to see her grow.



    It’s such a powerful episode about how belief and purpose (with scale and perspective) can make such a huge difference to our wellbeing. Em has faith and conviction that she will outlive her prognosis and it is being proven in her scans and results. She is manifesting her positivity and beating the odds. With an overwhelming message of empowerment for health and happiness, this episode will inspire you to tap into your intuition and recognise that you are never EVER helpless.

    43 - Healing At The Root: Skin, Illness, Hormones + Wellness with Lisa O'Connor

    43 - Healing At The Root: Skin, Illness, Hormones + Wellness with Lisa O'Connor

    In episode 43 we are talking to the glorious Lisa O'Connor. A certified Holistic Nutritionist, Lisa doesn't love being defined by one label, as her practice, and work is multi-faceted. Through her own personal deep healing journey, she has found her own unique way of alchemizing healing through the use of body, mind, spirit, breath and tapping into one's own innate radiance, beauty, vitality and power.

    This episode dives into Lisa's deep and personal knowledge based on her experience of losing her own health for a long period back in 2006. That journey has helped her see and feel what it is to truly heal. She cultivates and nourishes healing in others because she truly believes we can all heal. She has flipped the switch with the realisation that the mind, body and soul are all connected; that her experience, her healing, was a gift. She forged her own healing path and is helping others to find theirs too.



    We are diving into some juicy subjects all focussed on healing, including how:



    - Emotions manifest in our skin. It’s one of the ways our body tells that things are not ok. We discuss the influence of emotions like repressed anger + shyness that comes from traumatic experiences.



    - Women's periods + hormones are changing as they assume more masculine roles, making us out of sync with our natural cycles. Men + women are different on a physiological level + we don’t work in the same way. Progesterone is a woman’s natural anti-anxiety pill but when we are pushing + burning the masculine, progesterone has nowhere to land, so we will feel more anxious.



    - Everyone is navigating life the best they can. We can look to doctors for professional advice, but we also need to reclaim our own intuitive awareness of our bodies. When we harness our own innate ability to heal, we get true body autonomy + awareness.



    - When we over-identify with an illness or label, we can manifest physical symptoms we’ve not experienced before because we know those symptoms can appear as part of that condition. We discuss learning to experience a health challenge, without letting it define you.



    - The more we let go + surrender to new healing practices and experiences, the greater freedom we have. Find what’s right for you by trusting your intuition. The greatest healing practice in the world might not be for you, you just need to find what is.
