Really, Don't Just Let It Go!
How can you let go of a feeling you've never really held? Have you ever thought to yourself, "I've heard so many people say this but I don't know how to do it"? In this week's podcast we go over how to do just that.
One Big Relationship
When most of us think of relationships, we automatically think of romantic partners. We are in so many relationships that go way beyond that as well.
We're all engaged in a whole bundle of relationships, from romance and family to our relationship with our finances. So it’s super important to take note of… how am I relating to this person/place/ or thing? In this podcast we go through 4 ways to avoid miscommunication and enhance your relationships.
Disappointment is a tough thing to manage, but you can do it. This week we explore how to view your disappointment through a lens of care and how to befriend it.
Emotion Without Negotiation
How can we experience and integrate our emotional parts if we're constantly second-guessing their right to exist? This is a very sneaky self sabotaging habit of denying, minimizing, or invalidating our strong or tender feelings. In this episode we bring into light how that part of you is just trying to help - but sadly is making things worse.
Tiny, Panicky Parts
Sometimes, small parts of us rebel when we're trying to embrace the positive. What are those parts trying to tell us? Sometimes when we feel two polarizing truths (happiness & depression/panic) we can feel inauthentic. In this podcast, we learn how to fully feel our positive moments without avoiding the voice of anxiety that can knock on the door when we are feeling good.
The Wisdom of YOU
Do you think of yourself as wise? I do, and I think you should, too! We often confuse wisdom with related words like knowledge, intelligence, or understanding. But wisdom is making sense of and using the knowledge and understanding.
The Gift of the Grasshopper - fabulous!
I always relate to the topics in Ingrid’s podcasts. She has a way of making you pause and reflect on your own life. Today I listened to The Gift of the Grasshopper and smiled the entire time. Such a fun interaction with nature! And it was genius to use it to remind us to stay on our own path knowing others will join us when they are ready - or not. We, and the path that we are on, are okay just the way we are. Thanks for another wonderful podcast, Ingrid!
A must listen
I love this podcast! After a quick 15 minutes I feel my energy completely shift for the better. I always take away something from every podcast to apply to my everyday life as a Mom, Daughter, Sister, Friend and Coworker. Ingrids voice itself is even calming! I am able to listen to one on my way to work or to the grocery store. I love how they are the perfect amount of time and chock-full of amazing takeaways. I highly recommend this to everybody. Thank you Ingrid!
A great listen!
Ingrid has a knack for taking a simple topic and circling us around it so that we see it from a different perspective. She’s smart and insightful and I love how these episodes leave me feeling curious about myself and grounded - at the same time.
