    227. Coming Home To Self

    The most important home to visit during the Holiday season is the one within. In this solo frequency transmission, I share the waves I’ve been surfing around coming home to self, cultivating unshakeable peace, and BEing an invitation into love everywhere I go.
    Some of the topics we traverse:
    How to be when triggers come up around family 
    Invitation to shed anything you’re not meant to bring into the coming year
    Shining the light within the shadow
    Cultivating peace within
    Being a powerful weaver of your reality
    “How anyone around you acts is not a measure of how far you’ve come”.

    224. Let Go Of The Myth Of Getting Somewhere and Trust The Timing Of Your Quantum Path – BRITTANY EASTMAN

    224. Let Go Of The Myth Of Getting Somewhere and Trust The Timing Of Your Quantum Path – BRITTANY EASTMAN

    Brittany Eastman is an adventurer and architect of inner worlds where beautiful lives, businesses and leadership emerge. Writer, multidimensional mentor and speaker, Brittany creates rich spaces and communities where mysticism, business and self inquiry collide and thrive.
    I discovered Brittany through Ellie Seilern, and since then have really enjoyed her content reflecting on social media, business and motherhood. 
    We discuss: 
    Why the key to success is becoming more you
    The importance of not taking entrepreneurial failure personally
    The moment Brittany decided to crumble her business and re-build from a totally new foundation
    Energetic understanding that led to building a successful mentoring business
    Letting go of “the myth of getting somewhere” 
    Why you don’t need to earn the right to success
    The social media metrics you’re giving way too much attention to
    How Brittany has structured her online offerings outside of the “industry standards”
    No one can teach you the thing you were born to do
    Remembering your innate power
    Practicing discipline and refinement of what you let into your field 
    Energetic understandings that lead to a whole new level of self-expression
    Not giving away your power to gurus and experts
    Embodying the archetype of the writer 
    Creating from pleasure and from “here I am” instead of “this is where I’ve been”
    Brittany’s journey of elevating her brand 
    Visual brand identity as an enriching storytelling experience

The Gathering of Healer Warrior

I’ve been listening to Ksenia since “Funded by Source” and it finally hit me that one consistent piece of wisdom Ksenia has taught me is that creativity has no bounds!

amandakuda ,

Mindful & practical

Love The wisdom & approach of this podcast.

Joel G 8 ,

5 stars aren’t enough

This podcast is perfect. I’m heavily invested in both business and spirituality; but business podcasts can be tedious and spirituality podcasts can be saccharine. This podcast blends both subjects perfectly. It’s evident how prepared and present Ksenia is for each episode as she always keeps these big conversations moving smoothly and facilitates a mesmerizing flow that takes you completely out of time.

I’ve been deeply inspired, educated, and even moved to tears. This podcast should have millions of listens. Thank you, Ksenia.
