    Taking break from podcasting and what is next

    Taking break from podcasting and what is next

    Hello, my brave soul. The time has come when I decided to say goodbye to podcasting for a while and focus on my writing instead. 
    First, let me start by saying that I am beyond grateful for you, my dear listener who found my podcast helpful while always coming back for more. 
    Although the journey of podcasting has been deeply rewarding for me, I decided to direct my attention to something I love the most - writing. 
    Therefore, every Tuesday, I will publish blog posts with tools, tips, techniques, affirmations, quotes, and a little bit of storytelling to support you on your path of deep inner healing and growth. Also, stay on the lookout for some beautiful and healing meditations. 
    Another reason why I decided to take a break from podcasting is a realization I recently had. 
    The truth is that, for a while, I let the doubt get the best of me. 
    Although I wanted to write my second book, I thought to myself: 
    Who am I to write a book? 
    No one will want to read it. 
    Or my all-time favorite:
    “I am not ready.”
    It took a couple of months of solitude and looking within. I decided to confront my negative beliefs and break free from these self-imposed limitations. 
    I am beyond excited to embark on this journey for the second time and pour my heart and soul into my second book, and I can’t wait for you to read it. 
    Thank you again for being a part of this beautiful and fulfilling journey, and as I always say at the end of my podcast, I will talk to you soon. 
    Stay brave.

    The Art Of Detachment, Self-Regulation and Emotional Balance

    The Art Of Detachment, Self-Regulation and Emotional Balance

    A while ago, I watched an interview with Jay Shetty where he talked about detachment as stated in the Bhagavad Gita, a 700-verse Hindu scripture. He says that, “detachment is not that you own nothing. Detachment is that nothing owns you.” I find this one of the most accurate and simply understood definitions of detachment. 
    Also, it is worth noticing things and people we are attached to and then asking ourselves:” What does this person, thing, or achievement represent for me?” 
    It wasn't long ago when I was attached to men who came into my life to validate how lovable I was. Or using the attachment to my work and to-do list to justify my worth. If I worked my butt off, I was worthy. If I took a break, I felt guilty for not doing, and worse, being enough. 
    We often hear about detachment as an act of letting go. However, this episode isn’t about letting go but rather understanding duality, attachment to our preferences, things, and people that drive our emotions, and how to use the art of detachment to create and maintain emotional balance.
    Here is a glance at this episode…
    [02:05] Different types of detachment and how they show up in your life. 
    [03:47] Why do we attach to other people, results in our work and business, or how many things we get done on our to-do list and use it to justify our worth? 
    [07:50] Understanding the role of duality when it comes to attachment and how reframing from duality supports self-regulation. 
    [11:06] Seeing things for what they are, detaching from our preferences and opinions while creating more emotional balance. 
    [13:15] Sharing a part of chapter 4 from the Bhagavad Gita that talks about detaching from the results of our actions, eliminating suffering, and becoming free.

    2 Spiritual Tools For More Love And Kindness

    2 Spiritual Tools For More Love And Kindness

    Healing and walking a spiritual path doesn’t mean you don’t face challenges or that this path is linear. Therefore, having spiritual tools in place is important to keep evoking the love within while shedding off anything that doesn’t serve you. 
    Love is your ultimate superpower. It gives you the courage to take the brave step, softens your heart, and shows you what you are worth. 
    I always looked at growth from two different angles. 
    You either grow by life itself when things you don’t ask for or don’t expect come into your life and challenge you to grow. The second is intentional growth. It means that you take into your own hands what needs to be addressed without waiting for life events to do it for you. 
    In both cases, you need spiritual tools to support, regulate, and empower you. 
    In today’s episode, I teach you two powerful spiritual tools to regulate your nervous system, improve heart coherence, and bring more love and kindness into your space while releasing stuck emotions and energy that don’t serve you. 
    Here is a glance at this episode…
    [00:38] What was my past idea of a “good life”, how did my perception change, and why do I deeply value balance and my mind being in a state of equilibrium. 
    [03:02] Recognizing how these spiritual tools help activate the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for relaxation and basic understanding of the autonomic nervous system. 
    [04:56] Using spiritual tools to regulate your thoughts and emotions and how they contribute to emotional restoration and healing.
    [06:08] What is heart rate variability, and how does heart coherence support better mood and improve the immune system?  
    [09:30] How these simple spiritual tools bring forth heartfelt emotions, help you feel relaxed and calm, support heart coherence, and release negative energy.

    #1 Mindfulness Tool To Regulate Your Thoughts and Emotions

    #1 Mindfulness Tool To Regulate Your Thoughts and Emotions

    When I found myself having Monday blues last week, this was the mindfulness tool I used to snap out of it while reminding myself of the true nature of my mind. 
    There aren’t Monday blues, bad or good days, or happy Sundays (as people call it in America). 
    The quality of our days, regardless of what day it is or what is happening around us depends on how aware we are and how well we manage our thoughts and emotions. 
    This simple mindfulness tool is your internal resource available at all times and in any situation. Because paying attention to reality, to what is - is an art of self-regulation that’s not talked about.  
    Often, we get stuck in our imagination. We either ruminate on our past or indulge in the vision of the future that doesn’t exist.  Often, these visions aren’t compelling, inspiring, or uplifting. 
    In this episode, I will teach you a simple mindfulness tool to help you train your mind for the present while embracing the truth - this moment is all you ever have. 
    When you learn to differentiate between what is here and now and what is only your imagination or inner critic acting up, you’ll become the master in regulating your thoughts and emotions. 
     
    Here is a glance at this episode…
    [00:45] How I found myself in my head having Monday blues while observing my critic in full force.
    [03:14] How to use your awareness and attention as a mindfulness tool to regulate your thoughts and emotions.
    [06:07] An exercise I do with my clients to show them how to change their emotional state.
    [08:25] How to effectively use this mindfulness tool regardless of where you are or what is happening around you. 
    [10:21] How to handle your mind if it rebels against the new ways of thinking and feeling while effectively applying this mindfulness tool to your life.

    Healing Childhood Trauma And 3 Tools To Support You

    Healing Childhood Trauma And 3 Tools To Support You

    Although healing childhood trauma is a challenging path to walk, it is also a path of deep fulfillment and self-love. 
    When we become brave enough to look at our past and address earlier childhood experiences holding us back, we choose our destiny instead of settling for it.
    I’ve been healing my childhood trauma for a few years now. And although I have made significant progress, I still find myself emotionally relapsing while feeling paralyzed by fear and unease. 
    It is one of the reasons why I decided to record this episode and shine more light on what healing childhood trauma has been for me, how it shows up in my life and the lives of my clients, and what are the tools available to us to support us on this path. 
    If you ever doubt whether healing your childhood trauma is possible, know that there are support systems, modalities, tools, and techniques that are available to you to make this process a healing experience. 
    In this episode, I will share my journey while healing childhood trauma, why it is impacting us today, and what we can do to cope with it in a powerful and effective way. 
    Here is a glance at this episode…
    [01:49] The importance of honoring your emotions and why we need to pay attention to subtler negative experiences from our childhood which are easily overlooked. 
    [03:55] Healing my childhood trauma and handling emotional relapse. 
    [12:25] How memory without emotional charge becomes the wisdom that leads us forward. 
    [15:55] The importance of seeking help when healing childhood trauma and the available options. 
    [18:47] How yoga and meditation affected my process of healing childhood trauma and a personal practice I exercise daily. 
    [25:48] Using the inner child’s work as a powerful modality while healing childhood trauma.

    Rewire Your Brain With This 3-Step Process

    Rewire Your Brain With This 3-Step Process

    You can rewire your brain, change how you think and perceive life, and become in love with it by consciously choosing how you want to think. 
    The moment you are born, your conscious mind isn’t formed yet, while the subconscious mind is fully open. Therefore, whatever you hear, see, experience, and perceive from that point gets stored in your subconscious. 
    That’s where your mood, attitude, and personality form and then, often unconsciously, direct your life to this point. 
    However, many things you learn and adapt to aren’t serving you. Therefore, to change the way you think and feel, you must learn to rewire your brain. 
    What do I mean by rewiring? 
    When you think a thought, something called a “neuropathway” is formed in your brain. The more you repeat this thought or behavior, the more this neuropathway strengthens. 
    But what if you are repeating negative or self-defeating thoughts and behaviors? 
    We can refer to this as an unconscious process of thinking. 
    The good news is that we can make it a conscious one. Instead of letting your thoughts run on autopilot, you can rewire your brain by consciously choosing what you want to think. 
    As Carl Jung said, “Until you make unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.” 
    Life isn’t based on fate or some prewritten destiny that’s out of your hands. By consciously choosing who you want to be, and how you want to live and then actively working towards that goal - you can craft your destiny. 
    After listening to this episode, you will have a clear understanding of what shaped you into the person you are today and why you may find it hard to change. You will also learn how to rewire your brain with a simple, yet effective 3-step process. 
    Here is a glance at this episode…
    [01:30] A science-based understanding that explains how we create habitual ways of thinking and feeling. Understanding how you wire and then rewire your brain. 
    [04:42] How to consciously create new neuropathways and rewire your brain through a simple 3-step process. 
    [05:25] What is required of you to successfully apply this 3-step formula, and how to handle your mind when it rebels against your new way of thinking. 
    [09:42] How to use forgiveness and compassion as a support when working on your mindset and changing the habitual ways of thinking and feeling. 
    [16:05] How to use questions to rewire your brain and change negative thinking patterns by reframing them.
