    #19 Trauma - The Path of Healing With Sacred Medicine (not alcohol)

    #19 Trauma - The Path of Healing With Sacred Medicine (not alcohol)

    I was inspired to jump on at 5am-ish and record after being away for a bit. 

    I just had to share a profound realisation with you. Tune in and find out - the link between binning the booze, and being capable of dealing with trauma that is unconscious, and (potentially) unconsciously creating (frucking) havoc in your life.

    So get cozy, grab your morning brew and let's have some real talk.

    A few months back, I had this super intense sacred medicine experience which I went into with crazy high expectations. Like I'm talking a whole checklist of soul questions needing answers - know what I mean?  

    Afterwards, with some gratitude, I still felt really disappointed because I didn't get the clarity that I wanted. 

    However, what happened, was that over the next months, it slowly hit me. And when I realized the huge freakin’ gift it gave me, I was pissed at first before starting to feel positively liberated.



    See, before this ceremony, it wasn’t uncommon for me to have a glass or two of vino most nights with dinner. No biggie I thought. But after the ceremony...I just didn't want alcohol anymore. I’d have the odd bevvy, but averaging out at 1 or 2 per month. 



    The other night, I had two glasses of wine, and the next morning I felt SO depressed.  

     

    Having that space and clarity opened me up in ways I never expected. I would never have had the ‘aha’ moments I had, OR been able to deal with them without potentially feeling suicidal if I was stuck in ancient patterns. 



    The crazy part? Issues I'd buried long ago started bubbling up. We're talking unconscious childhood hurts I never dared face. But suddenly I found myself healing wounds, and filling voids in me I didn't know existed.



    And the gift of rest! My sleep has improved even more! I would sometimes awaken with nightmares, or I’d awaken with a shock - and my heart would be pounding in my chest. Now I sleep like a blissful baby and rise refreshed. 



    So, although it took me by surprise...cutting alcohol unexpectedly moved me into massive growth and healing. And that’s what I’m here for! 



    So I just had to share in case this inspires any other magic in your journey. Let me know in the comments if you’ve had any similar shifts or changes in your life.



    See you next time, and enjoy the short podcast today!

    #18 Intuition In 3 Steps With Abby Gooch

    #18 Intuition In 3 Steps With Abby Gooch

    In this episode, I spoke with intuitive coach Abby Gooch about tapping into our intuition and whether that can assist us in creating a life we adore.



    Abby shares her definition of intuition - and how to know whether you're connected with it.



    We talk about the importance of having a connection with our inner guidance system - to become even more of the wise, loving person that the world needs now. When we can access that silent voice inside - it not only knows what's best for us, but also the entire world. 





    We talk about:



    1. How our intuition can helps us make better decisions in business and in life. Abby talks about how intuition is the key to living in alignment with our truth and values (and helps us gain clarity on what they are).



    2. She shares simple practices to connect with our intuition, like tuning into our body for signals, asking for guidance, and noticing patterns and synchronicities. 



    3. We talk about how the challenges and changes of recent years have highlighted the importance of following our heart and if the intuition can keep us on the path of love.



    4. Abby's shares her perspective on success (and whether she agrees with Gerri's definition of "waking up each day with joy and excitement". Is it subjective and does it come from within? Or is it down to your wardrobe, the weather, your friends, hte external forces etc. Find out in this episode...



    5. She shares advice for those feeling stuck 



    6. Finding your spark - how listening to your heart and noticing what brings you joy can help. How we can regain motivation to realign with our true passions.



    7. We talk about the power of self-love and believing in yourself. Abby reminds us of our inherent worth and how to connect with it. 



    8. How to balance intuition and logic for optimal decision making.  



    9. Ways to course-correct when you have an off day. 



    10. And Abby shares memorable stories and pivotal moments in her journey to intuitive living and coaching others.



    And (of course) so much more - check out the show notes and Abby's free meditation gift here... https://souldiscoveryacademy.com/podcast/18-intuition-in-3-steps-with-abby-gooch/

    Join intuitive guide Gerri Mana and creative force Davide De Angelis for a magical conversation about combining imagination and groundedness to manifest your dreams.



    💖 Davide shares how he received "a destined call" from David Bowie, how keeping childlike wonder as the years pass is crucial, and shifting perspective to see life through the lens of magic.

    🧙 We also chat about there being a magical reality and how to experience life, and living, us and others more in terms of magic and love (the advantages being that we can start to see energies.

    🌺 As David says: “...I believe that when we are in a magical reality, we inhabit that and we see it and we experience it and we allow that to shape our lives, then that's what we end up with. That's what we get.” 🦄



    🆕 Discover why embracing your contradictions unlocks growth. Find inspiration to infuse your purpose with playfulness - and unlock the magic, so that it can shape our lives.

    💪 Flexibility and learning from setbacks leads to growth 

    👶 Take small aligned actions even if the path forward feels unclear

    🥳 Observe challenges like a play - what's the plot or lesson?

    😎 It's your duty to live your best life - self care benefits all 

    💰 When you put yourself first from abundance, your cup overflows 

    🪫 The opposite of creator is victim - which role do you play?

    #15 Your Future Store - Tickling Your Mind & Heart To Create Your BIG Dreams

    🏖️  Join Sleep Coach & intuitive guide Gerri Mana on an uplifting episode talking about visualisation and taking a journey to your "Future Store" where you can explore possibilities for your ideal life 10, 20, or even 30+ years from now!

    😀

     

    🖇️  Visit different "departments" which could represent different areas of your life - home, what country you’d like to live in, or visit, work and business, hobbies, relationships.

    What possibilities call to you?

     

    🥹 This is a great opportunity to notice any resistance or limiting beliefs that arise around dreams you want but don't think you "can" have

    Notice what’s there that you could have, but choose not to. For instance,countries, or states, or counties that you could live in, but choose not to. Or what relationships, or pastimes are there, but you choose to pass them by.

    What are you choosing to have less of?

     

    🏖️  How good are you at visualisation? Even if you feel you're "not good at it" - we can all visualise and Gerri helps you to learn how to visualise (having failed to do so for the first 30 years of her life).

     

    🥇  Observing without attachment - you don't have to take everything you see back to today, what’s there that you’ll leave there, and what would you love NOW?

    When you recognise these desires you didn't know you had, can help to expand your vision

    🎉 Enjoy gently playing with potential futures from a space of openness, curiosity and FUN!

     

    😇 Learn to allow your future, highest self to reveal the dreams that you've kept hidden

     

    🥳 This uplifting episode will open your mind and heart to hopes and wishes you didn't even know were there. Visualising your Future Store plants seeds - who knows what may bloom!
