    117. My Long Hiatus From Instagram & What I've Found in it's Place

    117. My Long Hiatus From Instagram & What I've Found in it's Place

    In this episode I dive into why I chose to leave Instagram for the time being, and all that it's taught me about myself, the life I *was* living vs. the life I *want* to be living. We'll uncover my subconscious identity criss, comparison trap after comparison trap, how my days felt then vs. how they feel now, and the patterns I was repeating without even being aware. Will I ever be back? Probably. But not until the yummy creative juices are the sole reason behind showing up on the platform. Join me for the 117th episode as I uncover my social media absence and my hope for what's to come.

    116. What it Means Now That I've Let Go of The Calm Collective

    116. What it Means Now That I've Let Go of The Calm Collective

    Thank you, first and foremost, for all of the love and support for our last episode where I shared the story of Jonathan and my miscarriage of our first baby. It's been... difficult, to say the least, but you have all played such a beautiful role in softening the ridges for us as we heal. 

    I'm working on playing catch up with you here, but first and foremost I felt it was important to shed some light on why I chose to let The Calm Collective go, the Universal sign that I did in fact do the right thing, and what it means for what's to come both within the Podcast space and over on the intimate Newsletter. This is a quicker listen, but I hope it helps unravel some of the unknowns ("Where the heck did the website go?", "Are you still teaching courses?", What can we expect?") All answered, right here.

    115. I'm Back, & Opening Up About Our Recent Miscarriage

    115. I'm Back, & Opening Up About Our Recent Miscarriage

    I was so nervous so sit down and record this, but know deep down that it's the right thing to do. For womenkind and couples out there who have endured miscarriage, and for the health of my own soul. The minute I hit "publish" I had this intense breath of release - a thousand pounds off of my shoulders. This isn't a "bad" secret to keep. It's nothing to be ashamed of; no fault of our own. It's just sad, and it's true, and it's real. 

    I know this is a lofty way to come back after a long, long hiatus of recording. And while I have much that I want to fill you in on (I got engaged, married, released The Calm Collective and built Rooted, etc), when tragedy hits, it takes precedence. I couldn't imagine coming back and talking about all of the aforementioned things without mentioning what's right on top of my heart - when I'm going through heartbreak. It's never been who I am; being able to pretend like things are okay when they're just, not.  

    So, I know we're coming in hot with Episode 115, but my hope is that we'll be able to meet each other where we're at. Me, here in heartbreak and healing, you, wherever you might be in life right now. I hope it brings us closer and feeling even more connected than before. I hope that this conversation normalizes miscarriage, grief, healing, and the like.

    Thank you for being here - for showing me grace as I stumble a bit through this episode, and for giving me the space to come back when it felt right to do so.

    Ep. 112 - Breaking Down ALL Thing Projectors in Human Design with Expert Ardelia Lee

    Ep. 112 - Breaking Down ALL Thing Projectors in Human Design with Expert Ardelia Lee

    YOU GUYS. Today's episode is such a fun one. Human Design is one of the most beautiful discoveries I've had in my lifetime, as it's been this massive, yet gentle, permission slip to better understanding the way that I operate, how I best serve others and myself, and just this deep affirmation that you truly can flow and live in sync with the Universe and let go of resistance as a whole. 

    If you're new to Human Design and you're like "what in the world are you talking about?" -- I encourage you to start by finding out what your human design is which you can do for free, right here. The only caveat is that you do need to know the exact time you were born as it stems from your birth chart. 

    I'm a Projector, which makes up about 20-24% of the population, and because of their unique energy fields and somewhat complex nature, I'm always looking for specific information around this type in particular. SO, if you find that you also are a Projector with the free chart above, come back and listen to this! It will be such a beautiful resource for you, and I guarantee you will feel so seen and understood. 

    Human Design expert Ardelia Lee breaks down all of the nooks and crannies when it comes to being a Projector. Business, relationships, money, food, love, raising children, the list goes on.. There really isn't anything that we don't touch on here.  Enjoy the show. x

    Ep. 111 - Grace Matelich On Becoming Your Own Advocate, Spirituality & Healing From Within

    Ep. 111 - Grace Matelich On Becoming Your Own Advocate, Spirituality & Healing From Within

    Today's episode is extra special, as I have a real life friend joining me on the podcast. Grace Matelich has been a friend and spiritual ally of mine for the past 3 years, and her zest and awareness for life and its magic is next level. She lives a life of both/and. Chronic illness and radical passion for this human life. Medical guidance and an empowering advocacy for her own best interest. Through this conversation, Grace walks us through her near death experience, and how this awakened her to her spiritual journey and deep appreciation for self and this one precious life. Regardless of where you are right now in life, you will benefit from Grace's message. I can't wait for you all to meet her. Enjoy the show. x

Intentional, calming, & holds space for all!

I had the delight of being one of Cassandra’s guests back in November & I so so enjoyed our conversation. She is an attentive host who has built such a welcoming & intentional place for those who listen. I have no doubt that you’re going to leave her episodes feeling lighter, calm, & uplifted!

Thoughtful and heartfelt

Cassandra is one of those people who demonstrates psychological flexibility, incorporates her authenticity into everything she does, and leads by example. This podcast is all of that and more. So full of heart, inspiration and knowledge. Five stars all day.

Your right on time with your grief Gina Venetico

Myself and Gina’s siblings so enjoy listening to this podcast tonight and hearing my Gina talked openly for the 1st time about her Dad passing thirteen years ago.
I felt the guilt knowing I wasn’t their for her or her siblings at the young ages 24, 19 & 17 .

My own grief /fright was overwhelming for several years knowing I would be the sole provider for my 3 kids, home, education, medical .
Her father has always from above watched over us all from and guided us.
He guided Gina right towards you and your Podcast tonight. Thank you ❤️
May your loving father continue to come to you in your dreams throughout the decades.
