    TRIGGERED

    TRIGGERED

    This episode is a long one because we have to make up for the lost timeSo this subject is just hittin’ the nail on the head for me, because I definitely have had me a week… if you guys follow me on social media (@vivianralena) you probably have noticed I wasn't as active as I usually am, and that’s because I had been feeling some different thangs. Some repressed emotions… some frustration, and even triggered some performance anxiety!Being vulnerable has to be the most complex, freeing, courageous & scariest thing that a person can do. I choose to be vulnerable with you guys, on social media, and with complete strangers, because I believe in authenticity and genuine character not he said she said bullshitDating - You do not owe anyone anything. Another person doesn't just get access to your body just because you go on a date with themBe authentic with who you are and your boundariesDo not put your worth in someone else’s opinion of you. You are a Game Changer #GameChangerGang #GCGThe struggle of what it’s like to work your ass off and feel burnt out or like there is no higher purpose or calling, or reason for why you are doing what you are doing. Knowing your commitment patterns could also be very usefulYour Superhero-ness… your possibilities… your potential… your divine lineage, where you came from. And no matter whether or not you are religious or believe in a higher power, I believe that knowledge is power and the more you know, the more you grow.Pageant Days - and oversimplifying answers onstage to questions lol and losing the crown because of itBeing inspired by actresses that played badass characters- what inspires you? Chase that.Nerdy wordy of the day - TriggeredYou Gonna Go and Affirm Yo’ Life - I firmly believe in affirmations and believe in the power of your daily dialog. So take out a journal, a notebook, a piece of scratch paper, whatever ya got and write or script these are the affirmations that I have for you: Try to repeat them after me: and feel genuine love for yourself and gratitude in your heart while repeating them:I am a beautiful everlasting soul that is important, worthy, and receptive of unconditional love.I am strong, happy, healthy, and whole.I am filled with joy and thankfulness every single day for who I am and the life I live.I am a superhero, the star of my own movie, and anything is possible for me.I can do anything that I set my mind to and success comes to me effortlessly.After you write these affirmations down, I want you to ask yourself, are these affirmations that I want to be in alignment with my own divine future? Do I want to live a life that is like this? And if you respond no in any way, besides yes, readjust your script accordingly. Write 5 more “I am” affirmations after those that are very specific to you, and then write “Your Name” at the top.Viva Wokeness Segment >>> Meditation Practice - So for a minute I play some healing solfeggio frequencies for you and for the entire time I want you to focus on 3 things: love, forgiveness, and peaceallow those things to resonate within your heartGCG - Game Changers Goal of the week - go out and do something new this week, or something nice for someone you don’t know of that you do know that would really appreciate the love, effort, or help.

    Mind Body Alignment

    Mind Body Alignment

    In the last episode we talk about what it's like to be triggered, and unresolved PTSD as well as the importance of practices and your words. This episode we talk about the Mind-Body Practices and Brain and Heart Coherence.  

    Toxic relationships can also prevent you from losing weight and can be a cause of weight gain, since our bodies are meant to protect us, they can go into survival mode.

    Sometimes when we respect someone's opinion of us, we will allow that to change our reality, so really following our hearts (when they are in the correct place) and our own internal compass is very important.

    We delve into Dr. Joe's Dispenza's work and elaborate on how important your heart really is. Understanding that your body and your emotions are tools that can very much transform your life if you obtain the knowledge and implement the proper practices to do so. 

    Also, I talk about a weird dream I had that mixed in my versa climbing instructor training and a little bit of my experience in DCC, which is very fascinating and probably would have a lot of underlying meaning if I really went into researching all that it meant. 

    Nerdy Wordy of the Day - Alignment and Menhir

    The Game Changer's Practice is dividing up your current dilemmas and reality into two camps, one as things that are in alignment, the other in dis-alignment.

    I yell at Lucky for being the loud bitch that she is, and I of course crack jokes for the majority of the time.

    This month is Suicide Prevention Month and we talk about it. Suicide isn’t easy to discuss, it’s not sexy and it might be a little too real for a lot of people. However, it is still an important subject to discuss. ( So this episode is not as funny or humorous as past episodes, but it just as informative)I talk about my past struggles with suicidal thoughts, things that you can do to help whether you are thinking about suicide or know someone that isI also share a story about a suicide attempt that now is being used to help other people cope with their own dilemmas and emotionsPlease, visit the suicide prevention hotline if you are in need of help or need to speak to a mental health professional. https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org

All over the place

I was excited to listen but I feel like this is all over the place with random thoughts scattered and it’s honestly hard to listen to. I think the message behind all that is probably good but I can’t get through it. If she would get to the point more, I think it would be a good podcast!

Did not understand humor

Jumped from one topic to another and kind of weird

Crazy

Vivian is crazy and not in a good way! She blames her problems and issues on everyone else. Sad…
