Does anyone else ever stop and wonder, "What the F*CK are we all doing here on this crazy-ass planet? Seriously, what's the point of ALL OF THIS?" while sitting in the Starbucks drive-thru while their kids fight over Pokemon cards in the backseat? I've pondered various forms of this question for as long as I can remember. It's lead me to accumulate random knowledge from different parts of the world, different wisdom traditions. It's also lead to even MORE QUESTIONS. The one thing I know for sure - getting comfortable with paradox is key. And no one has it all figured out. So, relax, nothing is in control. In this podcast, I'll share thoughts on life through the lens of mindfulness as well as strategies to question your critical thoughts (imposter syndrome, anyone?), beat burnout and overcome overwhelm. (These are all things I'm actively working on in my own life.) I approach this podcast not as an expert, but as a companion walking next to you during this wild ride. I'll point out the absurdity of this life. And also the beauty. I'll also guide you through meditations that move beyond relaxation and into deeply connect with your Intuition.

    Nature Coaching Meditation to Provide Clarity

    Nature Coaching Meditation to Provide Clarity

    Do you have a question or situation you've been wrestling with? Are you looking to tap into your intuition and higher self to provide more clarity on that question? Try this guided nature coaching meditation to see what nature, symbolism, your subconscious and mindfulness have to say about the situation at-hand. Maybe you'll walk away with profound insight and clarity.

    Recommendation: Listen to this meditation with ear buds in your backyard, while you're out on a walk or in a local park. This meditation has extended moments of silence so you can tap into your own inner truth and intuition.

    Guided Meditation: The Golden Suitcase

    Guided Meditation: The Golden Suitcase

    A meditation focused on releasing thoughts, beliefs, and emotions that no longer serve you. In episode 1, the key takeaways were to identity one thing you want to bring into your life and one thig you want to release from your life. This meditation will help shed more clarity on those things as well as help you release thoughts, feelings, beliefs that are no longer serving you.
     
    Why am I integrating guided meditation into a podcast focused on intentional living? Meditation helps us to tap into our inner truth and connect with peace, calm and clarity, and live more intentionally - according to OUR OWN values and inner knowing, not someone else's.

KBeeck ,

Highly recommend

Loving this podcast. I’m a very busy woman who always wants to take time for herself, but doesn’t know how. I’ve allowed myself 10 minutes a day to listen to episodes and I come out of those 10 minutes feeling better. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to pause during my day and reminding me to be mindful.

Lowers my stress level instantly

I have been listening to the author for over 20 years. She has always had the ability and the gift to center myself and anyone else to see the big picture in life. She is able to beautifully express the wonder and magic in nature all around us.
