    Discover Your Soul's Truth with Dr. Kim Andrews

    Discover Your Soul's Truth with Dr. Kim Andrews

    Dr. Kim is a PhD psychotherapist who works with clients to help them align their mental, emotional, and physical self with their soul’s truth, creating a life of intention, purpose, and JOY!

    Tune in as she shares so much wisdom about how to discover your soul's truth and break through the barriers of fear to unleash your worthiness and reach your greatest potential.

    Our Deepest Fear
    By Marianne Williamson
    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness
    That most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves
    Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
    Actually, who are you not to be?
    You are a child of God.
    Your playing small
    Does not serve the world.
    There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
    So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
    We are all meant to shine,
    As children do.
    We were born to make manifest
    The glory of God that is within us.
    It's not just in some of us;
    It's in everyone.
    And as we let our own light shine,
    We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
    As we're liberated from our own fear,
    Our presence automatically liberates others.

    The power of the vagus nerve

    The power of the vagus nerve

    Show Notes:
     
    The vagus nerve is the tenth cranial nerve, and it interfaces with the parasympathetic control of the heart, lungs, and digestive tract. The vagus nerve goes from the brainstem all the way to the colon.  It provides many functions of regulating heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and senses pain receptors.
    We know that stress and emotional distress play a role in development of disease or symptoms in the body. The better vagal tone you have the better you can handle stress so it does not get to a place where it is contributing to dis-ease in the body.
    Is there a way we can strengthen vagal tone to reduce stress related illness and make us more resilient?  The answer is yes!  Tune in to learn how counting to five can improve your vagal tone and improve our mood, reduce stress and anxiety and even boost energy.
