    Alexis Lawton: Who Is a Priestess, How to Run a Sacred Feminine Business, and How to Be a Divine Feminine Leader Within Our Families and Society

    Alexis Lawton: Who Is a Priestess, How to Run a Sacred Feminine Business, and How to Be a Divine Feminine Leader Within Our Families and Society

    In this episode of Journey Home to Self, we delve into the sacred journey of embracing our inner priestess and the transformative power of the Divine Feminine. Our guest, Alexis Lawton, shares her personal evolution from a ballet dancer to an intuitive, sacred space holder, energy alchemist, and a wild rose Magdalene priestess. Alexis discusses how she leads others back to their innate power and freedom through dance, movement, and somatic practices, and how her family, especially her three young children, continue to be her greatest teachers.
    Here's what we talked about in this episode:
    We explore what it means to be a priestess, the signs that you may be called to this path, and how it can manifest in your life.
    We discuss the power of sacred circles, including those for women, couples, and children, and the profound impact they have on participants.
    Alexis also highlights the difference between patriarchal business models and running a business rooted in the sacred feminine.
    The significance of creating space for oneself and allowing the wisdom of the divine to flow through, rather than relying on traditional planning and strategizing. 
    Alexis discusses the importance of allowing emotions to flow freely and creating a safe space for processing feelings. She emphasizes the power of tears and how they can cleanse and help move energy through the body.
    The importance of doing the work of a Priestess for the larger benefit of the collective.

    Chitra Rochlani: Cultivating Intuition and Overcoming People-Pleasing

    Chitra Rochlani: Cultivating Intuition and Overcoming People-Pleasing

    In this episode of Journey Home to Self, we dive deep into the transformative journey of self-discovery with the Chitra Rochlani. As a wellness coach, speaker, and best-selling author of "The Warrior Mindset," Chitra shares her personal path to finding her true essence and the power of intuition.
    Key Takeaways: Understanding Our True Self: We explore the importance of questioning the false beliefs and narratives imposed by society to uncover our authentic selves.
    The Power of Intuition: Chitra emphasizes intuition as an underutilized superpower that can guide us to make winning decisions in life.
    Overcoming People-Pleasing: We discuss the journey from being a people-pleaser to a "recovering people-pleaser," and how to recognize and honor our own needs and desires.
    The PFH Framework: Chitra introduces her signature framework, Peel, Feel, Heal, as a method to inspire transformation by addressing the root causes of our issues.
    Meditative Practices: We learn that meditation doesn't have to be traditional. Activities like art, nature, and movement can also bring us into a meditative state, allowing our intuition to speak to us more clearly.
    Episode Highlights: Chitra's personal story of coming home to herself and the shifts she made to unleash her inner warrior.
    The importance of self-awareness and the three A's: Awareness, Acceptance, and Action.
    The role of societal expectations in shaping our lives and how to break free from them.
    The significance of feeling seen, heard, and understood, and how we often seek validation in the wrong places.
    Practical tips on how to differentiate between the voice of intuition and the voice of fear or ego.

    Dr. Emy Tafelski: Unweave Threads of Patriarchy, Re-Weave Your Soul, and Reclaim Your Damn Self

    Dr. Emy Tafelski: Unweave Threads of Patriarchy, Re-Weave Your Soul, and Reclaim Your Damn Self

    On this episode of Journey Home to Self, host Deepshikha is joined by Dr. Emy Tafelski, a transformational Soul Guide and Spiritual Rebel to explore how to unweave societal constraints and embrace authenticity through spirituality and integrative health
    Here's what we discussed:
    Dr. Emy shares her personal journey of reclaiming her authentic self after experiencing personal loss and evolving from traditional therapy to deeper soul work.
    The importance of unweaving the threads of Patriarchy and Reclaiming the Feminine to create a tapestry of the soul. In her bespoke Soul-Weaving experiences, Dr. Emy guides individuals on a journey to identify and address disharmonious threads within themselves, such as feelings of not being good enough or people-pleasing tendencies. By recognizing and transforming these patterns, individuals can align with their authentic selves and cultivate a sense of worthiness and empowerment.
    We discuss the importance of acknowledging and integrating both Divine Masculine and Feminine qualities within oneself to achieve holistic healing and well-being.
    We explore the transformative power of authenticity in personal healing and its ripple effect on the world. By embracing authenticity, individuals can cultivate self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-compassion, leading to a more harmonious and empowered existence. Dr. Emy's work and teachings serve as a reminder that authenticity is not only a path to individual healing but also a catalyst for positive change in the collective consciousness.
    And much more!

    Maegan Megginson: Stepping into the Void

    Maegan Megginson: Stepping into the Void

    In this episode of Journey Home to Self, I had the pleasure of speaking with Maegan Megginson, a Licensed Therapist and Business Mentor. Maeggan shared her profound journey of transitioning from a Therapist to a Business Coach, and now to a mentor who blends emotional, psychological, spiritual, and strategic elements to help entrepreneurs.
    We delved into the challenges of realizing that the work we do may not align with our authentic selves and the societal conditioning that often keeps us from pursuing our true calling. Maegan opened up about her emotional process of letting go of her identity as a business coach and the importance of serving from a place of love rather than profit.
    We also discussed the concept of the liminal space or the void, which Maegan refers to as a fertile ground for personal growth and transformation. She emphasized the importance of feeling safe in the 3D world before fully surrendering to the unknown and shared her personal tools for navigating this space, including talk therapy, connecting with women in circles, exploring spirituality, and the use of psychedelic plant medicines.
    Maegan's insights on being a 'double agent' who can walk in both the spiritual and material worlds resonated deeply with me. Her message is a powerful reminder that our personal process is our work in the world, and sometimes, we need to live the questions rather than push for answers.

    Always Be Feeling: Four Tenets for Navigating Emotions

    Always Be Feeling: Four Tenets for Navigating Emotions

    In this episode of Journey Home to Self, we dove deep into the waters of our emotional states and how we often mask our true feelings with rehearsed responses. I invite you to pause and reflect on how you're genuinely feeling, beyond the surface-level "I'm fine" or "I'm okay."
    We explored the discomfort that comes with acknowledging our true emotions, especially when they're not entirely positive. I shared my own experiences with this struggle and introduced the concept of "spiritual bypassing," which is the act of using spiritual ideas to avoid facing unresolved emotional issues.
    To help you navigate this process, I offered four tenets of always being feeling (ABF): radical honesty, avoiding labeling emotions, allowing emotions the time they need, and remembering the purpose of our emotional journey.

⭐️ Grateful for the wisdom

Deepshikha is the kind of host that you immediately wish was the friend coming over for drinks. She creates a sacred space that’s both intimate and safe. More than anything, she’s a truth teller and finds guests who are committed to the same. Always a pleasure and medicine for the feminine soul!! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Maegan CM ,

Deep and transformative conversations!

Deepshikha is a feminine force. Her interviews are insightful and deeply honest. Anytime I’m craving real conversation, I put in my earbuds and play Deepshikha’s latest episode. Can’t recommend this podcast enough!

Psyram25 ,

This show is a must listen!

This is a show that’s needed in the current times. We often don’t talk about the inner journey and how it affects our life. Deepshikha and her guests don’t leave out any part, the messy, the good, the downright painful but it’s all needed on our way back home. The conversations here are raw, honest and enriching. It’s a weekly boost on my Spiritual Journey.
