    The Solar Eclipse, From The Heart

    The Solar Eclipse, From The Heart

    This past week brought with it the solar eclipse - and a lot of chaos! But that’s exactly what a solar eclipse is meant to do. It shakes things up and breaks down old structures that are ready to crumble. In today’s episode, Rachel unpacks the craziness of it all. 
    After a bit of story telling, she then dives into the patriarchal idea of success. Is it possible to quit the hustle and create from a more feminine, soft perspective? Can we really have a life of abundance that is filled with ease and grace too? Maybe the old way just doesn’t work for us anymore. Tune in to get to the heart of these questions and learn to follow peace, wherever it leads you.

    In this week’s episode, Rachel is talking to you from the mountains of Sweden where she is on ski trip with her family and best friends.

Rachel shares some hilarious stories before diving deeper into the topic of navigating parenthood as your children get older. She opens up about some new surprising challenges she has faced as a mother, how to navigate the world of big feelings, and the heavy weight we bear teaching our children to be kind. 
    Although it was a very full week, it seems like the busiest times are the ones you look back on the most fondly. One day these days will be nothing more than nostalgia. This episode will remind you to embrace the moment you’re in, soak up every phase of parenthood, and give yourself grace during the busy times. It all passes by so quick!

    Women Holding Things

    Women Holding Things

    The home, the children, the entire world - everywhere you look, you will see women holding things. Inspired by Maira Salman, today’s episode is a dedication to the mental load that we carry day in and day out as women and as mothers. It begins with a moment to check in and breathe before Rachel dives in, giving you a snippet of her brain and the seemingly endless list of things she’s worrying about in this moment.
    While it may feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, finding moments of grounding and silence to show up for yourself can make all the difference. There may never truly be an end to the holding women do, but this episode sheds light on learning the balance between the giving and receiving.

    The Days Are Long But the Years Are Short

    The Days Are Long But the Years Are Short

    This week Lea Luna (and the podcast!) turned seven years old. Since these years of life are the most formative, this feels like a big milestone. In this episode, Rachel takes a trip down memory lane and reflects on Lea’s life, from her birth to present day. She shares hilarious stories that highlight her daughter’s feisty personality (like the time she tried to run away from home) and more.
    One of the most bittersweet moments of parenthood is when you realize that your child is growing older and will need you less and less every day. All we can do is provide them with love and support until they are ready to launch. Tune in for a nostalgic episode that will truly remind you that the days may be long, but the years are short.
    Next week’s episode is Ask Rachel for the 7th anniversary. Call Rachel to leave a question at +1 (720) 443 1771.

Freebleeding

Love you so much! Just wanted to thank you for this episode. I have been curious about this for a few years and wondered about “the details”. Leah is one lucky girl to have you as a mom, I wish I had grown up the way you are raising her 💖

Sleep deprivation episode

I’ve heard a handful of these. Love the authentic shares and THIS one. Went through something like this w second baby and I felt like someone finally explained it similarly. Wow. I share my story on a blog and book would love to include this as an example!!!

No longer following

Used to be my favorite podcast. I found it in 2017/2018 and always looked forward to listening. Thankful for the past episodes but I am no longer interested and would rather keep my reasons to myself but there are quite a few why I am no longer following.
