    The Journey In - 1 - Intuition vs. Trauma

    The Journey In - 1 - Intuition vs. Trauma

    I shared an image that reads “Learn to differentiate between the sound of your intuition guiding you and your traumas misleading you.” A friend asked "How do you do that?"
    This episode is my response. I share some definitions of intuition and trauma and how they can manifest in our decision making. I also share how you can hone in on the ability to differentiate and some simple exercises you can do.
    This was originally a Facebook Live from my new group - The Journey In | live inspired. live empowered. If you'd like to be part of future discussions, join the group! See you there.

    Empathy in unlearning and the pendulation of motherhood

    Empathy in unlearning and the pendulation of motherhood

    JoAnna Bennett, the first guest of this season, returns to interview me in this finale episode to close out the season.
    We speak of how empathy plays a role in unlearning. As mothers of young children, we pontificate how we will raise teenagers. I share another take on how the village supports a mother as well as how I see motherhood pendulating from generation to generation. 
    We wrap up the episode on my favorite learnings from each guest as well as what Season 3 may bring.
    So many thanks to JoAnna for guest hosting!
    I'll see you in Season 3 after a hiatus.

    Flourishing, postpartum mental mood disorders and stories w/ Jessie Colbert

    Flourishing, postpartum mental mood disorders and stories w/ Jessie Colbert

    I met Jessie four years ago as an attendee at the first of her annual event called Flourishing, held by her non-profit, Mass PPD Fund. While we didn't get a chance to really speak then, the event left an impression on me. Luckily, we connected afterwards and have stayed in touch.
     

    In this conversation, we deviate from our theme of Unlearning so Jessie could share a bit about the fund and her event happening this Friday, May 6th! Jessie and I also talk about the cultural and systemic hurdles that mothers face, the importance of stories and why postpartum mental mood disorders (which includes postpartum depression) is such an important issue.
     
    Mass. PPD Fund is a non-profit focused on supporting and addressing the mental health needs of new parents. Their annual event, Flourishing, which celebrates mothers and survivors as well as providers, is happening virtually this Friday, May 6th at 12PM-1:30PM EDT. The event, which is free with option to donate, will have guest speakers, chances to connect with other mothers and raffles for some really cool items!
     
    Part of what Mass. PPD Fund has done in the past is provide scholarships to birth workers and mental health professionals to attend programs that train them on supporting those facing maternal mental health challenges. The transition into motherhood is no joke. Moms need all the support they can get and Jessie is helping do that. I’m very proud to know her and support this event as an attendee and on the planning committee.
     


    Don't forget to register here for Flourishing happening on May 6th 12pm-1:30pm!

    Acceptance, inner child work and healing w/ Jhaynane Sung

    Acceptance, inner child work and healing w/ Jhaynane Sung

    Something that really re-affirms the beauty of the Universe is when I can meet someone briefly and have a deep conversation with them. Today's guest, Jhaynane, speaks of some of my favorite things - inner child work, healing and re-parenting ourselves while also parenting our kids. 
    In this episode, we touch on the pendulation of mothering through generations going from one extreme to another. Jhaynane also shares ways to reconnect with ourselves while being a mom. Our whole conversation comes full circle through how she sees acceptance vs. forgiveness.
    I so appreciate Jhaynane's openness and real-ness in this episode. There are so many nuggets to take and apply to various parts of our lives.
     
    About the guest
    Jhaynane Sung (she/her) is a holistic healer (nutritionist, certified breathwork instructor, reiki practitioner, wellness and spiritual life coach) and mother. She helps women improve their self-esteem, create healthy boundaries and step into their power through breathwork, reiki, and shadow work. In 2016 while still at American University, where she received a Master's in Nutrition, Jhaynane opened her first health coaching practice. Her mission evolved from being weight-loss-focused to mindfulness and empowerment-centered as she began her own binge eating healing journey. Since then, she has helped countless women move away from self-deprecating thoughts, poor boundaries, and low self-esteem to focusing on honoring themselves, body positivity, and self-care. In addition, Jhaynane holds monthly breathwork and meditation moon circles at a Washington D.C. nonprofit serving homeless pregnant teen mothers.

    Creating change, uncertainty, and connection w/ Raphael Pastor

    Creating change, uncertainty, and connection w/ Raphael Pastor

    We can meet truly remarkable people in the random-est of places. 
    Today's guest, Raphael Pastor was my make-up artist for my cousin's wedding. Our 20 minute appointment led to this conversation.
    Raphael speaks about his work as a campaign organizer and shares some insight on how to create real change across the aisle. I ask for his thoughts on how social media can be used in social justice work. He also speaks of the importance of connection and compassion in equity work and beyond.
    One thing he said that will be forever engraved in my mind is - "For me, I see policies as debatable and dignity is not debatable." 
    From the conversation, you'll find Raphael comes with a kaleidoscope of perspectives rich in nuance. I learned so much from him as an activist and as a human.
     
    About the guest
    A former LGBTQ campaign organizer, Raphael Pastor (he/him) has witnessed the power of community. Starting as a presidential campaign volunteer and eventually working with New Jersey's campaign for same-sex marriage and national campaign for Employment Non-Discrimination (ENDA), Raphael empowers people to create change in their world through advocacy. Raphael's greatest joy is leading people to actualize their power and work toward their highest contributions. He aims to continually inspire LGBTQ youth and allies to become future change agents. Raphael is currently a social work student at County College of Morris and plans on working toward his undergraduate degree in Human Resource Management and Education Policy, concentrating on diversity and equity and college and workplace learning.
    If you want to get in touch with Raphael, you can find him on Instagram @beaute.theory.
