When we check ourselves, we wreck ourselves a little bit less. Let's get Shekked.

    Understanding the Inner Critic

    Understanding the Inner Critic

    The inner critic is what we call that inner voice that judges, criticizes and shames us. The thoughts surrounding actions, interactions, reactions, our choices and our behaviors- which can be harsh. We might hate on the inner critic for screwing with our self-esteem and our confidence, so in our self-awareness journey we might be convinced to get rid of the inner critic and those thoughts.
    Is that ultimately helpful though?

    Plot twist: The inner critic is not our enemy. Those thoughts are not our enemy.

    So why not choose a different way to view that inner critic that lives in you and your thoughts?

    Time for a self-check on checking in and understanding your inner critic.

    Kerri Hummingbird: Understanding the Mother Wound

    Kerri Hummingbird: Understanding the Mother Wound

    What is the mother wound? Who does it affect? How does it show up?

    The mother wound is not a specific diagnosis but it is something that affects us all.

    We are all born of a mother- and there are generations of beliefs and behaviors that get passed down from that. The roles mothers played in the past and in different cultures, how they survived to protect themselves and their children, how that affects the children they raise, and how it continues to get passed down in sons and daughter.

    The mother wound.

    In this episode I sat down to chat with Kerri Hummingbird- a soul guide, shamanic healer, inspirational speaker, teacher and author of the new book “Love is Fierce: Healing the Mother Wound”. We explored her discovery of how the mother wound showed up in her life, and the self-discovery journey she chose through the intentional healing of the mother wound.

    Kerri Hummingbird is the best-selling author of the books “Love is Fierce: Healing the Mother Wound”, “From We to Me: Emerging Self After Divorce” and “Awakening to Me: One Woman’s Journey to Self-Love.” She’s also the creator, the host, and the soul of the podcast “The Soul Nectar Show”.

    Sunil Godse: Cultivating Intuition

    Sunil Godse: Cultivating Intuition

    Intuition is a form of knowledge that appears in consciousness without obvious choice or thought.

    It is not magical but rather a tool in which our impressions are produced from an unconscious place in our mind- formed from our past experiences and our cumulative unseen knowledge.

    If you are like me, then there were a lot of messages you got growing up to NOT trust your intuition. Building that trust in ourselves, and understanding what that intuition looks like and feels like to us, requires some assistance.

    In this episode I sat down with the Founder of The Intuitionology Project- Sunil Godse to explore cultivating our intuition.

    Sunil is a well-known entrepreneur, author, coach and podcast host who has helped 1000s of people make the right decisions in their life by building and understanding their intuition.

    Accepting Communication

    Accepting Communication

    We all have had (or have) those people in our lives that frustrate us because of how they communicate....or how we think they don't communicate. We will blame them for the miscommunication, we create conflict around the miscommunication or lack of communication, and we exhaust ourselves trying to find ways to create "healthier" forms of communication with this person or people.

    Does the struggle help? Does the conflict help? Does focusing on fixing them or you help?

    Could acceptance help?

    In this episode, Erez Shek explores the idea of acceptance surrounding communication with others. Setting aside the labels of "communication styles" and the everchanging fixes to create "healthy communication" with others- can we find acceptance of the other and ourselves?

    Patrick Hill: Empowering Loss

    Patrick Hill: Empowering Loss

    We all face different kinds of loss in our lives, and we all go through hard times. It is an undeniable reality. Yet, loss and grief are not things we were taught to have a healthy relationship with even though we can and we should.

    In today’s episode, Erez is joined by Patrick Hill. Patrick is a transformational business and personal coach, focused on helping and supporting people through the harder times in life. After 21 years in recovery from drug addiction and the loss of his mother, Patrick realized that most of the significant growth periods in his life have been born from difficult times. Realizing this, he wanted to create a safe space free of judgements for clients to look beyond fear and shame....in their now.

    Reframe: Peace, Forgiveness & Healing

    Reframe: Peace, Forgiveness & Healing

    If you are like me, there are some very distinct images that pop up when I think of peace, forgiveness and healing. Cinematic images that seem far away and so hard to reach.
    What if we reframe those images? What if we reframe the concepts we have created around peace, forgiveness and healing?

Unbelievable

Unbelievable mind and soul.

Testimony matters

This cast is a screaming, blasting, banging, example as to home we mitigate stigma, maximize health seeking behaviors, and normalize the human experience of having a psychology. It’s self-aware, gritty, and beyond empathic and empowering. My friend, thank you for this. I will distribute this far and wide.

Watercooler25 ,

Great show!

I love the earthy mental health interviews and the takeaways from the podcast. I highly recommended 🙂
