    52 | When You've Got Nothing Left To Give

    52 | When You've Got Nothing Left To Give

    What do you do when you are completely tapped out and realize that you have nothing left to give? You are not able to communicate in the way that you normally do, you can't be there for people in the way that you want to, and you can't even find the words to say the things that you want to say and that came so easily to you before. You take a break and stop talking, that's what you do. You go inward, retreat inside yourself. You take time to laugh, cry, think, be. And one day you will feel better, come out of your shell, and feel more like yourself again. You always do. But it's important to give yourself time and space and experience the feelings you are having about all of the many things you are facing this year. There's so much to learn this year about grieving, patience, stamina, resilience, and also about finding the bright spots during challenges. Thank you for listening today as I talk about the break from words that I have taken for the last 7 weeks or so. The quote I read at the end of the episode is from Don Quixote and this is it: All these squalls to which we have been subjected are signs that the weather will soon improve and things will go well for us, because it is not possible for the bad or the good to endure forever, and from this it follows that since the bad has lasted so long, the good is close at hand.

    51 | Someone Else's Success Does Not Impact Your Own

    51 | Someone Else's Success Does Not Impact Your Own

    What is your immediate reaction when you see someone else experiencing great success? It could be love, career, health, money, travel... anything. Sure, there are times when you are very happy for people that you love. But if you are truly honest with yourself, are there also many times when you are scrolling through Instagram and see someone else's success and are left feeling bad? And why is that? Today I talk about the concept of experiencing others' success in a different way than you have been doing and viewing it as something positive and to be celebrated. This not only helps you expand your vision for what you want in your own life, but allows you to truly know that you are able to have that success as well. I also teach you one of the most fun Law Of Attraction "magic tricks" that you can put to use in your own life to create more abundance and joy. Connect with me on Instagram @iamgracebeason

    50 I Empowering Women To Have Agency Over Their Bodies

    50 I Empowering Women To Have Agency Over Their Bodies

    as a 44-year-old woman, I have spent my life believing that my weight defines me and that I am to trust every medical person who I come into contact with regardless of whether or not They know me or have my best interests at heart. As I learned to prioritize myself, advocate for myself, and love myself in the way that I know how to now, I also understand that a number on a scale doesn't make me who I am and that loving myself means loving every nook and cranny and flaw that I may see or feel. It also has led me to the knowledge and understanding that I am in control of my medical care and anyone I choose to see or trust when it comes to caring for my body. These are things I share vulnerably in this podcast in order that I might empower other women to do the same. When we truly love ourselves and when we learn to trust our intuition, We will find the way to our greatest overall health and wellness.

    49 | Law of Attraction and Happiness, Meaning, and Purpose

    49 | Law of Attraction and Happiness, Meaning, and Purpose

    Have you ever considered how happy you are, what gives your life meaning, and what your purpose is? Me neither. At least, not in this way until this week. How happy are you, really? Do you feel your life is meaningful? If not, how might you create more meaning? And what's your true purpose? Have you ever even considered it? Today we will explore these ideas and I'll challenge you to spend some time thinking through these things. It turns out, it really matters that we know how we feel and that we care about how we feel and that we *prioritize* how we feel. Are you ready to put yourself first? At the top of the show, I'll guide you through one of the most important practices for manifesting your desires and something taught by LOA superstar Abraham Hicks about the importance of gratitude and of caring about how you feel.

    Episode 47 | Coming To Terms With My White Privilege

    Episode 47 | Coming To Terms With My White Privilege

    After a month off from recording, I was finally ready today to sit back down and unpack some of the things going on in our country and in my world including taking a long, hard look at my own white privilege and how I'm working to change the thought patterns and behaviors I've long held about black people without even really realizing. I am learning, I am listening, I am willing to change. This is uncomfortable, this is complicated, but I'm not staying silent about my part it in and am thankful to have the opportunity to grow and change and help affect change.

Jay Word ,

Really honest, not commercialized

Grace’s recent episode on white privilege is great. It’s so nice to hear a PERSONAL response, especially from a COACH. I interact with coaches all the time, and Grace is, hands down, one of the most authentic. Thanks for keeping it real and being vulnerable, Grace! I realize I desire to hear and listen to people who are willing to be honest to god vulnerable with their own experiences. Thank you, thank you.
