    Brie's Bits: Creating When It's Not Perfect

    Brie's Bits: Creating When It's Not Perfect

    I'm doing a little freestyle in this episode as I catch you up on what's been going on in my world lately, mainly rashes and anxiety and creating a new newsletter over at Substack. 

    Basically, here's the DL on what goes on in this quick and dirty episode. I talk about:
    Calling 911 over rashes only to find out that stress, not allergies, were causing them. My patterning and old trauma that resulted into me having these weird rashes. How creating and pushing through and making stuff happen has been my balm to life's stresses -- sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes it just suppresses things (hence, the rashes).My old blog posts from the start of my freelance writing career, including one about pooping. Why I think it's always best to just create the thing rather than get it perfect at the beginning. The branding can wait! Just create! (this is from a recovering perfectionist)Why starting the thing you want to start is always better than waiting for it to make sense. Create your thing! We want to see it! Hulk Hogan's super stardom -- I mean, the dude was huge in the '80s! Why you should do the thing you want to do -- especially if it feels GOOD!What you can expect from my newsletter Not Related to Hulk Hogan and how excited I am to share it with you.  (P.S. in the first post, I talk about Pete Davidson and calling 911 and it gets weirdly fascinating.)

    We're trying something new on the pod...Brie's Bits!

    Colour Therapy, Career Changes, and Coming Home to Yourself with Emily Smith

    Colour Therapy, Career Changes, and Coming Home to Yourself with Emily Smith

    Are you obsessed with interior design? Who isn't, right?! This week's guest, Emily Smith, a holistic and conscious interior designer, is going to blow your mind when it comes to how energy and colour (or color!) can affect the ambiance and flow of your home. 

    Emily's work is centred around the concept of home, on a physical, emotional, spiritual and mental level. Through her offerings, including her spiritual and energetic gifts, she helps guide her clients back to their natural state of peace, joy, connection from within as well as helps them align to their space. Emily's journey, including her career change, stems from her own spiritual awakening -- she definitely knows how crucial it is to find alignment first before we go to seek it from outside of ourselves. In addition to EFT, she also works a lot with colour, including colour mirrors, and the reading she gives Brianne left her shook! 

    In this episode, we discuss: 
    Why home isn’t just a place - it’s a feeling - and it all starts with you, on the inside.How Emily shifted out of the 9-5 paradigm to create a career that suits her unique gifts. How energy is, literally, everything. Her spiritual awakening and how she deals with the ongoing purges that result from one. What it means to shed layers from our ego. How colour therapy can both heal us while also helping us get back in tune with our authentic truth. What it feels like to be out of alignment with your soul and why being in alignment is basically the backbone to life and the reason why we are here. Learn more about Emily here: https://www.emilyrosehomedesign.co.uk/

The Support I’ve Needed

Brianne doesn’t hold back. She looks at the “quirks” in her life and starts to debunk mainstream society’s superficial labels and expectations by acknowledging what has kept her from bursting into the fullness of her own life and potential. I’ve only listened to the first episode (and have followed Brianne’s writing for many years) but I love how this episode made me feel better and more empowered about my own “quirky” life path. I literally felt motivated to sit back down and work on my own writing again. So happy I gave this a listen. Looking forward to her conversations with future guests!
