    EP 49 - How Men and Women Communicate AND My Human Design

    EP 49 - How Men and Women Communicate AND My Human Design

    My guest today is someone who blew my mind at many points in this interview and I look forward to you hearing those moments!!
     
    Jason Matthews is here to talk about two topics:
     
    The first part of our discussion is around men and women and how we interact with each other and our peers. Jason and I discuss a few areas such as distrust and competition of needs.
     
    The second part of our discussion is around Human Design and what it means, and then we discuss some of the results of my Human Design reading I had with Jason earlier this year. It is absolutely fascinating what he told me!  There were so many moments that now help me understand exactly why certain things have been more difficult for me - I know you will relate to this topic for sure!

    EP 48 - Dissolving The Anchor To Create An Empowered Life - with H.I. Yates

    EP 48 - Dissolving The Anchor To Create An Empowered Life - with H.I. Yates

    My guest today is an incredible author and founder of Luv Mrk. Hailima Yates is here to talk with me about her book called "Dissolving The Anchor".  After a suicide attempt, Hailima wanted to stop feeling numb, sad and angry at the world. When life's challenges anchored her down, emotional distress kidnapped her spirit.  She needed to rediscover her power.
     
    To change her life, Hailima faced the sources that birthed her fears, shattered her self-esteem, and created her self-sabotaging behaviour. Part memoir and part self-help guide, Dissolving the Anchor illustrates a journey from self-critical thoughts and suicidal ideation to an elevated mindset.
     
    As a warning, this episode discusses suicide so if you are feeling vulnerable in this area, please consult with a doctor or mental health professional in your area.  Or call one of the Suicide Prevention numbers below.

Refreshingly open & honest

I am really enjoying this podcast. The host, Tiffany, keeps things real and I love how she tells her story without lots of drama. Her guests (that I have heard so far) are equally interesting and I love how Tiffany & her guests have created wonderful outcomes from their life experiences and have been able to find the silver lining in even the darkest clouds. Keep up the good work!

DrJHouston ,

WOW!!

The only word I can think of at the moment is WOW! Tiffany is absolutely amazing. I love that she is open and honest about her struggles and her triumphs. I would love to be her friend in real life, ha ha. Seriously, you definitely want to tune in. Hard Beautiful Journey is a phenomenal podcast!

Inspiring

Tiffany and her guests are honest with their life experiences in such a way where you can either relate or be inspired to acknowledge your own capacity to work through adversities. I appreciate the bravery everyone has in being genuine with sharing their story, because that realness can have you go beyond hope to knowing you can get through the hard times.
