    Inner Work 145: Can we use substances mindfully on the spiritual path?

    Inner Work 145: Can we use substances mindfully on the spiritual path?

    In this episode of INNER WORK, I explore whether it's possible to remain on the spiritual path - and continue evolving - while using substances such as alcohol and drugs.
    Join me for a discussion on:
    can alcohol use be compatible with the spiritual path? the importance of identifying our intentions and motivations for using substances how to notice if a particular substance or behavior is hindering your growth being mindful of how we're bonding with others, especially if some of our relationships are built mostly on substance use Towards the end of this episode, I asked my husband and lifelong spiritual seeker Garrett to chime in with his first-hand experience of psychedelics and "tripping" (since I have none!).
    I extend my deepest gratitude to Kris for writing in and sparking this episode! Your openness and vulnerability in sharing have served all of us.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: everything in this episode is based on my personal experience, opinions, and observations as an intuitive healer. I'm not an addiction specialist or mental health counselor. Please use your common sense and intuition about what's best for you, and seek professional help if needed.

    AWAKENING: Being vulnerable (with friends and others)

    AWAKENING: Being vulnerable (with friends and others)

    Being vulnerable requires a great deal of courage, presence, and transparency with ourselves and others. What happens when you're vulnerable with someone, and they can't receive, honor, or reciprocate your vulnerability? 
    This episode of AWAKENING explores both the benefits and potential consequences of being vulnerable with people in your life. I share a few personal anecdotes of being vulnerable in 2022 and how my friends and family members have responded.
    Join me for a discussion of:
    what it really means to be vulnerable with yourself and others why some people have a more limited capacity and tolerance for vulnerability how to accept where others are while being true to yourself and your need for deep connection how to deal with a vulnerability hangover how to decide whether, with whom, and how much to share when big things happen in your life Thank you for tuning in and supporting the podcast! Your presence here means the world to me.
    Please be kind to yourself and others - we're all doing the best we can with what we have and where we are right now.

    AWAKENING: How to bring your spiritual insights down to Earth

    Recently, a listener of this podcast asked me an important question: how do we bring our insights and healing down to Earth, to share them with others? How do we embody our spiritual insights?
    In this episode of AWAKENING, I answer this question and talk about:
    how to avoid using spirituality or spiritual tools (like the Akashic Records) as forms of escapism how to periodically review your spiritual insights and lessons, to see whether you're actually applying them in your life a personal story of how I've been applying a recent spiritual insight in my own life questions to help you come into greater integrity with yourself and your spiritual principles Thank you to Alix for writing in and suggesting this topic!

    Inner Work 143: The Healing Power of Compassion with Jessica Flanigan Brown

    Inner Work 143: The Healing Power of Compassion with Jessica Flanigan Brown

    My guest for this episode is Jessica Flanigan Brown, clinical nutritionist and author of The Loving Diet. Jessica has been practicing clinical nutrition for 25 years, specializing in gut restoration and disordered eating, especially in mid-life. She's getting certified as a compassion teacher at Stanford University School of Medicine’s CCARE Applied Compassion Training program. Jessica helps others get in touch with the healing power of their heart through a practical approach.
    In this interview, we talk about the marital separation that broke Jessica open and how she turned to compassion as an essential practice to begin healing.
    Among other topics, we also talk about why so many of us carry a core belief of being broken, flawed, or unlovable - and how we can begin to shift that.
    To explore Jessica's work, go here: https://thelovingdiet.com/
