    SP 292: The Final Episode of The SHAIR Podcast with Cole Chance and Omar Pinto

    SP 292: The Final Episode of The SHAIR Podcast with Cole Chance and Omar Pinto

    Six years ago, The SHAIR Podcast began as a small recovery podcast with intentions of interviewing others about their experiences in recovery. With no expectations about where it would lead, today, the Podcast has over two million downloads. The SHAIR Podcast is a testament to the transformative power of connecting with others. With nearly 300 episodes, the Podcast has helped thousands of people around the world pave their own path to kickstart the journey of recovery.
    On the last episode of the SHAIR Podcast, Omar Pinto brings back Cole Chance, recovering addict and yoga teacher to discuss the end of an era and a new transition from the SHAIR Podcast to the Omar Pinto Coaching Podcast. From the grips of a devastating addiction to a recovering addict to a globally recognized coach, Omar discusses what it has taken to get where he is now.
    If the opposite of addiction is connection, recognizing the importance of getting out of oneself to help others brings an opportunity for growth and contribution, and that’s exactly what the SHAIR podcast has done for the past six years. 
    The SHAIR Podcast will continue to stay on all your favorite streaming services. However, new podcasts will now be available under Omar Pinto Coaching each Tuesday, starting on January 5, 2020.

    SRC 015: Healing Childhood Wounds by Crushing Limiting Beliefs

    SRC 015: Healing Childhood Wounds by Crushing Limiting Beliefs

    For many, the joys that come along with being a parent can be equaled out by the stressors and chaos that follow behind. Driven by an innate need to nurture and love, parents can live their lives for others, sacrificing their own hopes and dreams. What if we can’t absorb that unconditional love for ourselves that we give to our children?
    When we don’t feel like we’re good enough parents, the anxious thoughts of inadequacy can creep in and affect our thoughts, our parenting, and every aspect of our lives. When we cover these feelings up with a drink to mitigate the fear and the anxiety, we prevent ourselves from processing our true feelings and developing healthier ways to cope with them.
    In this week’s SHAIR Recovery podcast, we help Leo crush his powerful and deep limiting beliefs from the emotional wounds of his childhood that reflected his behavior in active addiction as a parent. Leo is still punishing himself, not trusting himself, and unable to see past his limiting beliefs and his behavior. The group helps him recognize his authentic qualities, gifts, and also helps him understand the powerful defense mechanisms he built just to survive, knowing that when things get too hard, we all protect ourselves by avoiding feeling joy and love at all costs. 
    In this week’s SHAIR recovery coaching call, you’ll learn:
    How to identify negative patterns and belief systems we’ve picked up from our parents How we can tap into our inner child to help our children. How to fully give ourselves the unconditional love we’ve always wanted How we can use the power of naming fears and anxieties out loud to change our actions and thoughts.

    SP 291: Overcoming Trauma and Abuse with Essential Oils and Yoga Nidra

    SP 291: Overcoming Trauma and Abuse with Essential Oils and Yoga Nidra

    After fleeing from an abusive marriage, Rebecca Davison found herself using alcohol as a way to cope with her PTSD. She explains, “if I had a bad day, I would have an extra drink, I was very much a gray area drinker, but I didn’t like being drunk, it made me scared and anxious.” 
    Because of her support system and healthy childhood, Rebecca rationalized her drinking. She hadn’t hit that  “rock bottom.” She hadn’t reached the depths of what she perceived an alcoholic “should.” It wasn’t until she had a psychotic episode with a boyfriend where she finally came to the understanding that drinking and PTSD was dictating her life. 
    Through studying and research, Rebecca came to find Yoga Nidra and Essential Oils as her saving grace. In the practice of Yoga Nidra, it helps soothe the vagus nerve, which is essentially our flight or freeze response that may have been altered or skewed due to the trauma we’ve experienced. Additionally reducing emotional reactivity and increasing self-regulation, the benefits of Yoga Nidra and essential oils are deeply healing on a cellular and emotional level.
    Once Rebecca came to understand the healing benefits of these properties, the more she separated herself from her PTSD, where she began helping others heal from their own trauma. 
    “Taking care of yourself and choosing to thrive is a revolutionary act despite all of the oppression and suffering in the world.”
    Rebecca Davidson is an artist and yoga and meditation practitioner and teacher with over 20 years of experience as a student and eight as a teacher. She specializes in yoga nidra, restorative, tantra, and other spiritually-based practices such as mantra, pranayama, and meditation.
    Rebecca is also a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, an intuitive tarot and oracle reader, and is currently pursuing her MFA in Painting at the Savannah College of Art & Design. When she is not practicing, teaching, making art, or helping others transform/heal, Rebecca is probably drinking black coffee and listening to music or a podcast. She is a tree-hugging, crystal-collecting, essential oil wearing, animal loving, sober vegan.

    SRC 014: Removing the Blockages and Limiting Beliefs Preventing Us From Getting into Action

    SRC 014: Removing the Blockages and Limiting Beliefs Preventing Us From Getting into Action

    We all have goals, dreams, and aspirations. But, what happens when the undertones of your past limiting beliefs gets in the way of achieving them.
    “I’m going to fail, so why even try?” “I’m not good enough.” “I’ll never be as good as them.” “I’ll never be as good as I was years ago.” 
    When we compare ourselves to others, or even begin to compare our actions to a younger version of ourselves, we become stuck within these past limiting beliefs. However, your past experiences of success tend to leave clues. If you’ve been successful before, there’s no reason why you can’t be just as successful now. 
    Often, what you believe will influence the way you react to events, how you feel, and how you act. And much of the time, those beliefs can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy. For instance, if you can’t handle being uncomfortable, you’ll be less likely to step outside of your comfort zone. The moment you get uncomfortable, the inner critic shows up, and you can begin to cut yourself down.
    Though, by being gentle, loving, and practicing positive dialogue with ourselves, we can begin to challenge these beliefs. 
    In this week’s Recovery Coaching Group, we helped Dustyn, Rema, and Cori who are all struggling with the voices of the inner critic inside themselves.By focusing on the “how,” of our goals instead of the “what,” we can begin to silence the negativity and when we soften our language towards ourselves, we can begin to soften our emotional state. 
    In this week’s Recovery Coaching, you’ll learn:
    How we can use accountability to break patterns of negativity and bring on permanent change. How by losing faith in ourselves, can begin to lose faith in everything else around us. How to silence the inner critic to stay motivated and accomplish our goals and dreams. For the show notes and links for this episode go to theshairpodcast.com/014.

    SP 290: Breaking Free from Religious Guilt and Obligation

    SP 290: Breaking Free from Religious Guilt and Obligation

    If you grew up in a strict religious home, you were most likely taught about heaven, hell, and a very long list of what makes us a good person or a bad person.
    At times, it feels as if our most intimate feelings can be judged and create feelings of guilt, confusion, and inadequacy. Whether it be Jehovah's Witness or Judaism, people tend to hand over religion and ideas about G-d in a way that layers guilt on top of obligation.
    As humans we are bound to make mistakes, sometimes we do, say or feel things that we are not proud of. When you are brought up in a authoritarian religion or faith community and/or your parents or religious leaders are the type to manipulate and control through religion, your spirit will be crushed, you will not be able to forgive your mistakes, every “bad” thought you have or every single thing that you do or say that could be considered “immoral” will hunt you and be a cause for shame, low self-esteem, feelings of being underserving, and the list goes on.

    What if you could break free from the guilt that may still be holding you down?
     
    Don't miss this powerful conversation with Eli Nash and Omar Pinto about this difficult subject as they discuss the way religious guilt seems to consume many people.

    SRC 013: Battling Relapse and Allowing Self Forgiveness

    SRC 013: Battling Relapse and Allowing Self Forgiveness

    Nothing good comes from self-shaming. When relapse happens, it can be easy to fall into a shame cycle of self-loathing. When we promised ourselves we’d “quit for good,” or “never fall back into old patterns,” and find ourselves back there, it can be overwhelming. We may find ourselves scouring our memory to understand how we could have gotten back here. Or, maybe we’re stuck in a cycle of dealing with unresolved trauma - feeling waves of shame and guilt that are all consuming.
    In today’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call, the group helped Pete. Currently in a state of relapse, Pete struggles to confront his relapse behavior until the intervention of the group steps in. The group also helped Adam. Struggling with unresolved trauma, the group walks Adam through the process of self-forgiveness to find healing and safety. 
    In today’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call, you’ll learn:
    How self-loathing can contribute to relapse How trauma can lead to self-loathing, shame, and guilt The process of self-forgiveness How to find unconditional love when others aren’t there to support us For the show notes and links for this episode go to theshairpodcast.com/013.

I love Omar

What a blessing this podcast is! Fantastic production and the most mellifluous host one could hope for. Would love to get Omar on our show “recovery in the Middle Ages” someday as he inspired me so much to creat an addiction recovery podcast! Also the coaching calls are a really unique angle that has helped me tremendously. Thanks for everything Omar!

Episode with Mr. Shubaly

Thank you so much for this episode! I connected with it on so many levels. I appreciated you guys touching base on AA not being for everyone, I struggled with this at the beginning of my sobriety because I just did not fit in. Instead I found what worked for me, podcasts, apps, writing and meditating. So thank you for reaffirming that we don’t have to go to AA to get sober. Also on the whole machismo and cultural aspect of men and their toughness a lot more people need to hear this and understand it. Love this podcast!
