    How to Break the Cycle and Finally Accept Yourself

    How to Break the Cycle and Finally Accept Yourself

    Episode20: How to Break the Cycle and Finally Accept Yourself Explicit
    This week's topic is so critical for having healthy relationships. It really is the foundation for everything. We cannot continue to expect others to give us the love we are unwilling to give ourselves. My guest Jen McCutcheon and I have a beautiful discussion about breaking out of the cycle of self sabotage and finally accepting ourselves. What a beautiful way to live!
    To truly accept ourselves we need to let go of needing validation from others. We must be able to show ourselves compassion and let go of judgement towards ourselves. We all need love and support and it's ok to reach out to others. There is no shame in that. It's ok to take a break. It's ok to get help. Self love is not selfish, it is in fact mandatory for our wellbeing and the wellbeing of everyone around us.
    Jennifer McCutcheon is a Consciousness Coach, owner of Truly Connected who specializes in helping mothers of children struggling with addiction reclaim their lives. She is passionate about empowering women. Using customized tools, including mindfulness, movement, and self love, Jen strives to reconnect women with their true identity, confidence and power. Guiding beautiful souls in living purposeful, joy-filled, and authentic lives.

    You Can't Be Free Sexually If You're Not Free!

    You Can't Be Free Sexually If You're Not Free!

    Episode19: You Can't Be Free Sexually If You're Not Free! Explicit
    "You can't be FREE sexually if you're not FREE!" ~Glen Mitchell
    I had the pleasure of having this conversation with Hypnotherapist Glen Mitchell. We discuss what freedom actually is and how to have it. Freedom begins and ends in the same place; the mind!
    Victor Frankle in his book "Man's Search For Meaning," says that the only freedoms we have are the ones we create in our own mind. We can control how we respond to a situation even if we can't control the situation. That is freedom.
    There is so much freedom in the power of CHOICE!
    Glen Mitchell is a Hypnotherapist, specialising in working with all anxiety conditions and helping people to create a Limitless Mindset! He's also a Hypnotherapy teacher and well-being enthusiast! Glen is the co-facilitater of the amazing "Freedom from Sugar Addiction Programme" with Charlotte Harris.
    He trained in hypnotherapy 6 years ago, and has been teaching hypnotherapy for the last 18 months. He is married with two children (sorry ladies) and has many reptile pets!

    Breaking Free Sexually

    Breaking Free Sexually

    Episode18: Breaking Free Sexually Explicit
    In today's episode we really dig into what it looks like to Break Free Sexually. Sometimes the programming is so deep either through indoctrination or our culture. Regardless, it becomes imbedded in our consciousness and unless we are willing to take a look at what we actually believe, we won't ever be free sexually. The awakening process forces us to shed some of the programming that certainly every woman has had. However, men also struggle to break free from the programming.
    I am thrilled to have my dear friend and colleage Lorna Gale, on the show today. She is a teacher by nature and by training and brings to her work over 30 years as an educator: in schools, energy healing, bodywork, somatic sex education, D/s, Somatic MindSet, story writing and unweaving, and holistic life mentoring.
    Lorna came to the work of somatic sex education and spiritual mentorship through her own spiritual journey and mid-life sexual awakening. When you hear Lorna speak, you will know that she speaks from her own experience, with a passion and mission to help people see through their stories into the lens and portal of divine feminine power, sexuality, and leadership, moving beyond shame, sin, and guilt, trauma, disconnection and disassociation so they can experience embodied sexual and spiritual wholeness, live their truth erotically alive and free, and in doing so, change their world.
    Lorna says that the patriarchy is not just men, it's a whole structure that even women have bought into and we need to be willing to take a look at it. Spiritual awakening is the ability to let go of shame and guilt and connect with yourself in a deep, intimate way. We need to tap into our bodies and listen to what they are telling us.
    How can we enjoy our sexuality if we aren't even aware of what our body wants or needs? It's important to get curious about our bodies so that we can communicate our desires with our partners. Trust me, they will appreciate the help if it's shared in a loving way.
    I hope you enjoy today's episode.
    Love, Karine

    How Vulnerability is a Superpower!

    How Vulnerability is a Superpower!

    Episode17: How Vulnerability is a Superpower!
    Explicit
    Today's episode is an awesome conversation with my guest Joshua Ludlam, the Exponential Coach and BelongKing.
    Always looking for the possibility and the path to connection, he coaches and speaks on how to create powerful partnership, belonging and authentic expression in every area of life. He coaches leaders, entrepreneurs, and business owners on how to Become Exponential and when not working, immerses himself in play, fun and self expression.
    He is also a TEDx speaker and gave a talk called "Belong Anywhere, Thrive Everywhere" on the Dupree Park stage November 5, 2021. Watch it here.
    Today we have a powerful discussion on how vulnerability can be a superpower. Some use it as a tool to manipulate but we talk about how to express our authentic self in a powerful, genuine way instead.
    We learn the importance of sitting in discomfort and how being ok with it leads us to a clear direction about who we are meant to be in connection with. It is so freeing to not be scared of sharing your truth with others and asking for what you desire. These conversations can create defining moments in our lives if we are willing to take responsibility for our feelings and actions.
    We are faced with choices everyday and the energy in which we share ourselves with others is the most powerful shift we can make. True vulnerability is a superpower. It starts with being vulnerable with ourselves first. When we accept our deepest shadows and struggles, we can love ourselves in a way that bring freedom to everyone we are intimately connected with.
    Own your shit! Don't make your partner responsible for your emotions! Invite them in to share in your experience, not to fix it!

    Love,
    Karine

    The Innocence of Sexuality Part 2

    The Innocence of Sexuality Part 2

    Episode16: The Innocence of Sexuality Part 2
    Explicit
    Welcome to Part 2 of this conversation with my special guest and dear friend Rosanna "RozyGlow" Hanness.
    Today we get into the Innocence of Sexuality compared to how it is perceived by society as evil and shameful. We discuss the process of birth and how the fear of pain makes things worse. We need to be open to receive pain and let it flow through us to birth true joy in our lives. Every good thing has the potential for pain and discomfort but it is how we deal with that pain and accept it that determines how we fair in life.
    Rosanna is a channel of Divine Grace, CoCreatrice of Paradise Earth and the founder of the #StarPeace movement. StarPeace is designed to seed a positive narrative into the collective consciousness of humanity allowing a shift of perspective regarding the past and the present, so we can live a future we truly desire, personally and collectively.
    The Creatrice of both MultiDimensional Yoga and Coaching,  Rosanna empowers those she works with to rewrite their narrative, raise their vibration and choose to be part of the solution rather than the perceived problem.
    She delights in working with creatives and visionaries to raise their vibration so they create from their soul, rather than ego wounding, by claiming their power as CoCreators of their reality and aligning with the Win Win Win and the Highest good of all. This involves awakening MultiDimensional Consciousness in those who are heart centred influencers, whom Rosanna recognises as awakening StarSeeds, so the balance of power shifts from external authority to inner authority & sovereignty. 
    As a psychic and intuitive, Rosanna has received the message from her connection to the Divine, that it is time for an era of PEACE and CoCreating through JOY. Her 22 year background as a fertility, pregnancy, birth, neonatal and early years expert, has involved teaching a holistic approach to these areas through yoga & raising awareness regarding the impact of how our earliest life shapes our physiology, subconscious expectations, health and life experience. Her work includes decoding our early human imprints so we can make a true connection with our soul consciousness.
    We talk about the energy of connection and how every connection whether sexual or not has an energy exchange. Sexuality holds an energetic component whether it is a deep, sacred interaction or just a fun playful session. There is still an exchange of energy with someone else. There is a level of vulnerablility in all of our interactions and we need to be aware of energy of those we engage with.
    There should be no shame in the interaction. We need to release shame and get curious. How do you feel in your body around this person? Do they take your energy or is there an equal exchange of energy? Or are you forcing your energy on someone who is not ready to receive it?
    We talk about honouring your boundaries and what you actually desire. It's important to know what you enjoy and be able to speak up for yourself. We revisit the concept of creating safety so that we can actually experience the innocence of pure, authentic sexuality. Checking in to our bodies before anything even happens can tell us how safe we feel is the first step to enjoying anything sexually.
    At the end of the day, it's about loving yourself deeply and being able to be authentic in your sexuality.
