    190: Astrology for Healing, Business & Self Acceptance w/ Chani Nicholas

    190: Astrology for Healing, Business & Self Acceptance w/ Chani Nicholas

    Life is a chaotic circus. One minute things could feel great, and the next things could seem absolutely awful. Amidst it all you might have asked yourself “What am I even doing?” and “Do I even have free will?” Chani Nicholas shares how astrology can help us cope with uncertainty, nurture self-acceptance and reveal our life’s purpose.




    Chani stresses the importance of being lost to be found, and how leaning into discomfort helps us grow. She invites us to explore what could happen if we stopped fighting ourselves, and reminds us that we cannot heal on our own. At the end of the day, our growth is collective. How can we move with intentionality and connect our pieces of light together, to radiate a healthier world?




    TIMESTAMPS:

    11:42 - Astrology is one of the greatest shortcuts into who you are.
    20:48 - How do you be a human and run a business? Stay human.
    28:30 - We were born with our “ingredients” but we decide what recipes to cook.
    31:28 - You can’t do life wrong.
    35:00 - Why “being lost” is an invaluable step in our journeys.
    40:43 - If you want to change you have to be willing to let some things go.
    48:55 - With greater consciousness comes greater responsibility. How are we creating healing in this one precious life?
    53:55 - Let your fragment of light guide you towards healing yourself and others.

    189: Reinvent Your Identity & Make Decisions for Yourself w/ Maddy Park

    189: Reinvent Your Identity & Make Decisions for Yourself w/ Maddy Park

    Following a set career path with clear steps may feel safe, but is that honoring your true self? Maddy Park talks about her upbringing, how it led to years of stability (and an unfulfilling career in dentistry), and taking the risk to become a content creator making cozy cooking vlogs.

    While juggling a part time job and creating cooking videos, Maddy shares how cooking became a form of therapy and how she formed a new identity by taking control of her life. She also takes us behind the scenes of Cafe Maddy Cab: an AAPI charity and non-profit (despite having no experience at all).
