    Episode 157: Elena Sonnino - Inhabit Your Joy: Becoming the Magic Maker in Your Own Life

    Elena is a spark of energy, a ray of sunshine and a cultivator of embodied JOY- living what she teaches. I enjoyed our conversation so much, and loved diving into some impromptu “parts work” as our interview created space for my inner perfectionist to reveal herself, and how this inner part was created from a memory of embarrassment and shame (so interesting!)



    What does it mean to re-inhabit ourselves?
    How feeling our feelings helps us to make space for joy.
    How can we learn to give ourselves what we most need - by getting out of our head and into our bodies?
    Why nudges are important when it comes to making bite sized changes in our lives.
    Why we should not FIX ourselves or each other.
    How does the body become a conduit for healing?
    Why does joy feel elusive for so many women?
    How the inner parts of ourselves can often unintentionally keep us from our joy!
    Why our my bodies are the ultimate teachers
    How we can get out of survival mode and Enjoy and Embody our lives!


    Elena Sonnino is a yin yoga teacher, author and Life Coach who is on a mission to help you transform the walls of survival mode into doors of possibility so that you can step into the spotlight of your life as your most rooted and nourished self. Her work helps you get out of your head and into your body as your source of wisdom, and moves you from beyond shoulds and into curiosity and delight, one day at a time.

    Episode 156: Miguel Conner - The Forgotten Goddess: The Gnostic Sophia & The Restoration of The Universe

    Episode 156: Miguel Conner - The Forgotten Goddess: The Gnostic Sophia & The Restoration of The Universe

    "Whether or not you know it, you’ve probably been influenced by the beliefs of the Gnostics and their powerful grasp over aspects of Western spirituality. Many schools of metaphysics, the occult, mystical teachings, and even fraternal organizations and secret societies have borrowed heavily from Gnostic teaching. It’s impossible to do justice to Gnosticism in a single article, but I’ll do my best to introduce you to some of the basic concepts, leaving further research to those spurred on by the mysteries inherent in the Gnostic world. Any personal work done, if seriously approached, must serve to improve the understanding and knowledge of the student.” - Mo Abdelbaki



    The term "gnostic" derives from "gnosis," which means "knowledge" in Greek. The Gnostics believed that they were privy to a secret knowledge about the divine, hence the name.
    It is understood as one of the oldest versions of the christian religion and perhaps that it even dates back to pre-christian times.


    More than anything it’s a cosmology of the universe and a mythical way of seeing how the world came to be including the dualistic nature from which all things in this material world are separated into.


    In this episode:



    Gnosticism helped Miguel to see the bigger picture - a holistic view of the Universe.
    The Myth of Inanna and her relevance to everything.
    Why Gnosticism matters and why it is considered an ecstatic and shamanistic religion
    How The Goddess Sophia comes to awaken the divine soul and restore the universe.
    How the Gnostics face the "horror and the holy" of the Universe
    How Gnosticism helps us hold the darkness and light in order to find the middle path
    Why it was said that "Modern man can’t see God because he doesn't look low enough”
    How Miguel became a gnostic and how being a “misfit” paved the way to bigger questions.
    What drove him was the question "What is the nature of evil and suffering?”
    The Gnostic Philosophies and their application to todays world
    Leaning into a divine feminine aspect and how the gnostics differ from traditional Christian interpretations
    Much of Jungs work is derived from the Gnostics - depth Psychology in particular followed the premis “go within to discover the truth”
    The counterfeit self that keeps us locked into the matrix- living on the surface of life vs. the ego death which then gives us access to the deeper secrets of the soul.
    The gnostics knew that we are not our identities - but instead the divine spark with vast and infinite capacities
    The Gnostics believe we all have a destiny that is part of the restoration of the Universe.
    If the exterior is all an illusion, then the way to find the true reality is within us- where the true universe resides.



    "We did not come to this world to be good, but to be ourselves.” - Jung



    If the exterior is all an illusion, then the way to find the true reality is within us- where the true universe resides.
    Gnosticism helped Miguel to see the bigger picture - a holistic view of the Universe.


    Miguel is the host of Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio, a popular show on Gnosticism and Hermeticism, ancient and modern

    Episode 155: Isabel Friend - The Science & Spirit of Water

    Episode 155: Isabel Friend - The Science & Spirit of Water

    Most of us are desperately dehydrated despite drinking the recommended daily allowance of water because most of the water we drink is no longer “alive”.


    In our modern world, we have stripped water of its nourishing and hydrating properties through the purification process. Through our industrial treatment of water, we’ve stripped water of it’s minerals and made most of the water highly unstable, chaotic, and incompatible with human life. This results in disease, dehydration, premature aging, and death, but the good news is that awareness can literally change everything!


    Learn about proper hydration and the critical information you need to help your body properly detoxify, repair, and regenerate so that you can recover your energy, vitality, and joy!


    In this episode:



    The far-reaching intelligence of water and its role in our health and in our lives.
    What water has to do with the cosmos and planet earth.
    Why most of the water we drink is considered “starving water”
    Why wild water is important for health and vitality.
    Why water is the key to climate change and energy.
    Why 99% of us are dehydrated
    How water has the ability to channel information, vibration, and frequency.
    How we can create wise, intelligent, and mature water.
    Why we are water beings as much as we are human beings.
    What is structured water and why should you drink it?
    Why Water is the foundation of a unified approach to ecology, politics, medicine, and more
    Why wild water is the fountain of youth and how you can tap in.
    The significance of transitioning from the age of Pisces (water immersion) to the age of Aquarius (water bearers)?


    Isabel Friend is an international ambassador of Water, public speaker, and educator. She seamlessly blends science and spirit into a comprehensive cosmology of Water wisdom.
    Spanning the practical insights of health, hydration and biology, to empowering tactics for Watershed guardianship and ecological activism, to the esoteric and subtle insights of ancient indigenous Water wisdom, to the heady scientific discoveries of cutting edge Water research, Isabel’s offerings are as multifaceted as Water itself.
    For the past 6 years, she has taught about Water throughout the US, Canada, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Bali, Mexico and Thailand.


    Water is Life. And as such, water holds the solutions to life’s toughest questions. By shifting our relationship to Liquid Life - from resource to THE source - we tap into the vast untapped potential of free energy and boundless wisdom within us and within nature.

    Episode 154: Acharya Shunya: Roar Like a Goddess - Becoming Unapologetically Powerful, Prosperous, and Peaceful

    Episode 154: Acharya Shunya: Roar Like a Goddess - Becoming Unapologetically Powerful, Prosperous, and Peaceful

    Acharya Shunya is a truth-teller who facilitates authenticity, self-remembrance, and divine feminine pathways to awakening.


    After centuries of living in patriarchal societies, many women don’t realize how powerful they are—or how much they’ve been enculturated to keep their true nature hidden.
    In Roar Like a Goddess, trailblazing Vedic spiritual teacher Acharya Shunya empowers women everywhere to step into their divine immensity and lead powerful, abundant, and wise lives through her revolutionary revisioning of ancient India’s primary goddess archetypes:



    The Goddess Durga—A role model who vanquishes internalized misogyny and institutionalized patriarchy, Durga teaches you how to take back your full feminine power.
    The Goddess Lakshmi—Known for her beauty and generous spirit, Lakshmi guides you to cultivate unshakable inner contentment and soul-aligned abundance.
    The Goddess Saraswati—The ultimate teacher of our most profound journey to Self, Saraswati illuminates the gifts of wisdom, peace, and inner freedom.


    Sharing classic myths, original insights, and empowering practices, Shunya offers a profound process for awakening the many faces of the goddess within.


    Episode Highlights:



    Why Women’s Anger is Sacred and why we must learn to express it
    How the Goddesses can serve as inspiration for modern feminism
    One of the most fundamental aspects of self-empowerment is cultivating a healthy sense of self-worth.
    How the goddesses teach us to love ourselves
    Acharya’s journey as a spiritual teacher who became the head of a 2,000-year-old lineage.
    How she walks the line of being bold in her assertions, as well as inclusive in her teachings
    Why we should encourage the carnal pursuit of pleasure
    Similar to the pursuit of sex, we — particularly as women — are taught that the goal of material wealth is “non-spiritual,” but this is not true
    Why women’s power is not always available uniformly, and how can it be accessed from within.


    The first female lineage-holder of her distinguished Vedic tradition, Acharya Shunya is an internationally renowned scholar, teacher, author, speaker, and scholar of nondual wisdom (Advaita) from India and a classically-trained master of Yoga and Ayurveda. She is the Founder of The Awakened Self Foundation and the nonprofit Vedika Global, Inc., platforms headquartered in Northern California that empower, educate, and inspire a global community of students through online courses, workshops, and retreats. These conversations are furthered by Shunya’s top-rated podcast, “Shadow To Self.” An award-winning author of international repute, Shunya’s most recent book, Roar Like a Goddess: Every Woman’s Guide to Becoming Unapologetically Powerful, Prosperous, and Peaceful, was published by Sounds True in September 2022 and is now available worldwide.

    Episode 152: Dr. Christena Cleveland - God is a Black Woman

    Episode 152: Dr. Christena Cleveland - God is a Black Woman

    An act of desperation often leads us to revelation, which was also the case for Dr. Christena Cleveland as she set out for a solo 400-mile track across rural France in search of The Black Madonna.


    This conversation was so rich and powerful. I absolutely loved unpacking Dr. Cleveland's story and her future vision for what is possible in the world where women permit themselves to find their divinity within their own female bodies.


    Christena Cleveland, Ph.D., is a social psychologist, public theologian, author, and activist. She is the founder and director of the Center for Justice + Renewal and its sister organization, Sacred Folk, which creates resources to stimulate people's spiritual imaginations and support their journeys toward liberation. An award-winning researcher and former professor at Duke University's Divinity School, Christena lives in Boston, Massachusetts.



    What made Christina walk 400 miles across rural and deep France in search of Black Madonna Statues?
    The world events that became the catalyst for Christena's activism
    The kinship and devotion Christena encountered in her search for the Black Madonna through the various townspeople and the activation of "the village phone tree."
    How the Black Madonna has become a center of french village culture and what she offers for those who have reached a state of desperation.
    How the Black Madonna has helped Christena to unburden herself and why she is symbolic of helping others to lay their burdens down.
    How Christena's emotions took a role in leading her to pursue the Black Madonna.
    How Christena unraveled her trauma of white male God and how it impacted her relationship with her family and community
    We are taught that if there is a problem- it's us vs. the system that conditioned us.
    How much spiritual and social homelessness we have to go through as we "unbecome" from our cultural and religious conditioning.
    The process of letting go of patriarchal influences of certainty and perfection and how "she who cherishes the hot mess" became one of her chapter titles.
    The trap of patriarchal security and how it dampens our creativity and our sense of adventure
    What happened when Christena began to reclaim her spiritual autonomy and her theological imagination

Empowering!

I just discovered The Revelation Project and absolutely love Monica’s authentic and empowering approach to supporting women who seek to know their inherent wholeness and worthiness! I listened to Monica’s recent conversation with Joel Green and it was an inspiring reminder that we have so much power in how we frame what happens for us. Joel’s explanation of how he reframed struggle as something that could help him propel forward was outstanding. Highly recommend!

Vulnerability

I listened to episode 2 today, and boy did it speak to me. One of the main reasons I haven’t written my book is because I didn’t know how not to hurt the people in my life. I’m beginning to understand that is not my responsibility beyond being as kind as possible and honest as possible, at the same time. Their response is their’s. Thank you.

Positive influence on my day

I found you when I was notified of the episode with Amanita Dreamer as I have been following her work. I came away from that episode feeling like I had invested that time listening in the improvement of my soul and mental health. Since then I’ve listened daily and don’t have the words to express my gratitude for you work. The insights, ah ha moments and overall positive “vibes” I get from every show have made a difference in my life. As a therapist, it is difficult for me to find things recharge me at such a deep level. You have a new fan. With gratitude and light, Terry
