    Safe Spaces For Becoming (with Edwina Yeow)

    Safe Spaces For Becoming (with Edwina Yeow)

    EPISODE 21 

    Have you experienced a lack of understanding and acceptance when you had opened up to someone you trusted about your interior journey?  We need people who can be safe spaces for us as we make this journey, but we need to know how to identify them.

    In this first half of a two-part conversation I have with experienced soul guide and spiritual companion Edwina Yeow, we discuss why we need safe spaces and how to identify if someone can be a safe space for us.

    REFLECTION PROMPT
    Listen. 
    - As you listened to today's episode, what struck you? Does something resonate particularly strongly with you?
    Ponder.
    - Can you remember any time in your life where you have experienced what we describe as a safe space? Who was it that made you feel like you could really just be who you are and not be judged or evaluated or criticised?
    Act.
    - Where you are now in your journey could be quite different from the last time that you experienced being in a safe space with someone. This would be especially true if you have begun this interior journey only recently. 
    - Try to identify someone whom you think could be a safe space for you now, at this point of your journey.

    Why Things Get Worse Before They Get Better

    Why Things Get Worse Before They Get Better

    EPISODE 20

    Why is it that we often wait until things get worse, sometimes until we hit bottom, before we really try to address the destructive patterns in our lives? Why is it that we have so much inertia to seek help or address our issues even when we are in pain?

    In this episode, I share 3 reasons based on my own life experience and observations why this happens more often that we would like to admit.

    True vs. False Limits (with Henry Hoo)

    True vs. False Limits (with Henry Hoo)

    EPISODE 19 

    How can we tell the difference between true limits which are meant to be honoured and false limits which could be an invitation to transcend the limiting beliefs that we inherited from our life script?

    In this follow-up conversation about limits (Episode 17), my husband Henry shares his experiences with both true and false limits in the context of leadership.  We also talk about how to differentiate between true and false limits and how both play a role in our journey into authenticity.

    You Don't Have To Care About Everything

    You Don't Have To Care About Everything

    EPISODE 18  (Bonus)

    Are you overwhelmed by the sheer number of things that you feel you need to care about? In this bonus episode, I remind you why it is that you don't need to care about everything that is good or worth caring about.
    An essential part of the interior journey into authenticity and wholeness is knowing yourself well and where and how you - with your limitations - are uniquely created to make an impact in the world.

    Befriending Our Limits (with Henry Hoo)

    Befriending Our Limits (with Henry Hoo)

    EPISODE 17
    How do you feel when you hit up against your limits? Most of us have been taught that limits are meant to be surpassed and that growth comes when we push past our present limits. But what if some limits are meant to be embraced?  What if some of our limits are important signs we need to understand in order to become our True Selves?

    In this episode, my guest (my husband Henry) and I discuss how our personal experiences with limits have helped us to live more joyfully and become our authentic selves.

    The Joy of Hiddenness

    The Joy of Hiddenness

    EPISODE 16 

    When was the last time you went away to a quiet place to spend some extended quality time with your inner self? No interior life pilgrim will be able to make headway in this journey without entering seasons of hiddenness from time to time.

    In this episode I share why seasons of hiddenness from the distractions and pressures of our lives are invaluable for going within and connecting with the core of our being. 

    Do you feel like you have been losing touch with your inner self? Or that busyness has been keeping you circling on the outer layer of your life without being able to pay attention to the core of your being? This episode is meant for you!

    REFLECTION PROMPT
    Listen. 
    - As you listened to today's episode, what struck you? Does something resonate particularly strongly with you?
    Ponder.
    - How does the thought of entering a season of hiddenness make you feel? Let your emotions review of themselves to you without judging them. What do you think your emotional response to being hidden is telling you about the state of your inner being? 
    Act.
    - Identify an area or two in your life that would benefit from a time of hiddenness and tending.
    - Then plan for a period of time to get away and be hidden where you can be in silence and solitude and be tended to. 
     For full details of this reflection prompt, please see transcript.

Authentic, inspiring and great questions to ponder upon

Highly recommend this podcast!
I enjoy the honest sharings and appreciate the “practice prompts”, it feels as though I have an actual companion/ coach journeying with me. I am positive this podcast will be an excellent tool/resource that I could utilize on my journey to healing and becoming me.
