    Episode 39: Messages from a Donkey

    Episode 39: Messages from a Donkey

    This holiday season I have been pondering an unexpected teacher, "the donkey," that has been speaking to me from my Christmas Nativity manger scene with symbolic truths that are for all of us as we go on the journey toward greater love and connection with our divine self. The donkey brings us messages of humility, peace, and service under the heaviest of loads as well as needed to untie yourself from that which holds you back. We will ponder on other profound messages from the Christian tradition of the Nativity and how it invites us to wholeness within ourselves and with each other. This message downloaded to me as a birthday gift this morning just in time to invite you to participate in the shedding of fear, shame, and a mindset of separation at this time of Winter Solstice. You can join in the ancient tradition of shedding the old year, with the sun completing it's yearly journey, and starting a new one Dec. 21st! I invite you to hear the messages for the donkey this holiday season.

    Episode 38: Following Your True North

    Episode 38: Following Your True North

    So excited to share this conversation with Allyson Chavez, a prosperity and success coach for ambitious God-centered women, who teaches women to lead with their feminine and leverage the power of their minds so they can lay down the struggle in pursuit of love and success. Allyson shares her authentic experience in personal excavation to rise above her limiting beliefs to move from personal struggle into allowing God/Universe to support her in co-creating her desires.

    Find out about our limiting beliefs that often show up around money and sex and how we can align with an abundant mindset to balance our masculine and feminine energies. She discusses how human sexuality connects to our "true north," the divine feminine, through our desires and what lights us up! Allyson and I both get raw and real about our own process in removing blocks to our sexual desires and how to start where you are at in this process.

    Come sit down with two women opening up their learning around sexual growth and development, how to find what you desire, and how to give yourself permission to express it.

    Episode 37: Are you Brave?

    Episode 37: Are you Brave?

    For several months I have been gathering up courage to talk to you about a very personal topic, Human Sexuality. Why would a therapist struggle to talk about something that is such a big part of all our lives? I explore my own indoctrination around sexuality and how owning my divine sexuality has been perhaps the most important and most difficult part of my healing journey.

    In this episode, I candidly share my experience with doing a personal inventory of beliefs, systems, and perspectives that I recognized needed to go and how I replaced them with those that allowed for greater healing. I speak of my journey from child to woman in sexuality and how I learned to be responsible for how I show up in my relationships, with my own body, and how to co-create my sexual experience. I explore the first steps in healing wounded sexuality and invite you to step more fully into concepts of oneness and harmony with both your divine self and your partner. This one is raw and real!

    Episode 36: Getting Out of Your Own Way

    You likely can identify when stuck in fear, shame, and overwhelm. However, you may struggle to identify the root of this emotional state and how to shift out of it. In this episode, I will discuss the common plight that is self-sabotage. Then we'll go further into how you move out of these states into higher levels of consciousness that allows for personal growth and expansion. We will discuss topics such as: 3-Centered Knowing, the electro-magnetic properties in thoughts and feelings, and how to be intentional in what you intake into your mind and body. After all, you create your own view of reality.

    Join me in learning how to "choose in" to what you wish to create. Learn to recognize your blocks and be invited to expand and clear your beliefs, emotions, and energies that are stored in your mind and body that do not serve you. Come learn how to be further aligned with that which you most desire!

    Episode 35: Walk Uniquely with Oneness

    Episode 35: Walk Uniquely with Oneness

    Using a model of human growth and development, we explore the journey of moving towards something called, "Oneness." Each of us is a unique Self with gifts, talents, and purpose that only we can individually bring to the world. Through the process of differentiation, you can learn how to show up as your unique Self even while being part of larger systems that may not always celebrate our uniqueness. Learning to see both the divinity in yourself and others that walk differently than you, allows for greater emotional and spiritual maturity and greater connection to the whole of the human family.

    May I suggest that our experiences of separation from love are our greatest teachers of where we are invited to grow into greater love. As we learn to observe our fear, triggers, and judgements of others, we become aware of our separation from love that stems from our ego self and its difference from our true identity. Awareness is the doorway to healing. I share some of my learnings along my path toward enlightenment and how I "choose the light" in how I see myself and others. I will walk you through an exercise that reveals the 3 parts of self: Ego, Heart, and spirit that all communicate to us different messages of our identity. By making this previously subconscious chatter conscious, you are empowering yourself to choose to hear the voice that best aligns with your true identity and what you desire to create.

    Oneness allows you to walk in greater confidence in your unique path before God/Source within your systems of family, friends, work, and religious communities. I invite you to explore how to uniquely walk in oneness in this podcast!

    Episode 34: Healing the Shadow of Self-Betrayal

    Episode 34: Healing the Shadow of Self-Betrayal

    In this episode I invite you to some recent "shadow work" I have been doing of owning my disowned parts of self including ways of I have betrayed my wants, needs, and even my uniqueness. Self-Betrayal is common for all of us that experience caregivers, systems, and mindsets that tell us that we need to perform, deny our wants and needs, or play small in order to feel loved and connected to a tribe. I will discuss a mindset that puts down the lies of fearful ego and helps you see how being your unique light is how you show up in humility and heal yourself and others. We also discuss strategies of healing self-betrayal including making and keeping a consistent promise to self. Join me to do a little shadow work and step further into your light!
