    [BONUS] Opening up to Possibility : REPLAY from Being All of You Podcast | Episode 74

    [BONUS] Opening up to Possibility : REPLAY from Being All of You Podcast | Episode 74

    "Sometimes we want to rush out of the harder moments, but those are the moments where the most growth and transformation happens because we're uncomfortable. Sit with those moments, and feel into them and allow them to be your teacher."

    SURPRISE! Welcome to this BONUS episode of The Living Courageously Podcast - a REPLAY from being a guest on,  "Being All of You Podcast" with Haylee LaRose.

    Our conversation was one of those moments where I felt so deeply connected to this community, to this work, to the deep intention that is embedded in all that I do to create a sense of community, belonging, purposes and being seen and heard.

    This conversation really moved trough all of that, but from such a different vantage point than what you're used to hearing on this podcast as it's from someone else asking me questions that then brought out different and new information within my soul.

    We connect on : 
    My journey that’s taken me across the world and led to me creating my multi-passionate business and living out my dream life every dayA powerful question you can ask yourself to break out of your habitual thought patterns and routine and open yourself up to living into different realitiesA bit of advice for putting your new awareness and choices into daily actionHow to cultivate a deeper relationship with your heart and live from a more authentic place that aligns with your higher visionWhat we’re risking by not asking ourselves the opposing questions and how to tap into your courage alongside your fear to continue growing
