    Welcome to the Wild Awake - The Story Behind The New Podcast

    Welcome to the Wild Awake - The Story Behind The New Podcast

    Ep 24: Today's episode is a special one, because I have been personally going through some huge personal shifts over here, and this podcast is moving and shifting right along with me. 

    Mindset Rebel has evolved into a deeper and more experiential exploration of spiritual awakening, personal and collective transformation, and embodied self-empowerment through the lens of psychedelic plant medicine, shamanism, and a direct experience of awakening.

    Allow me to introduce you to... The Wild Awake. :)

    This episode will take you through a bit of my story over the past few months, the massive shifts I've been experiencing through plant medicine, and what the new podcast will look and feel like going forward. 

    I'm so excited to continue the journey with you! 3

    Personal Update: Navigating "Dark Nights", The Energy of Places, and the Art of the Pivot

    Personal Update: Navigating "Dark Nights", The Energy of Places, and the Art of the Pivot

    Ep. 23: I wanted to share a bit of a personal update, as my past few months have been chock full of challenges, lessons, magic, darkness... and everything in between.  
    On this solo episode, I dive into my own personal "dark night" (or as I like to say, total emotional unraveling  over this past month in Mexico 😆), sitting with massive discomfort and surrendering to growth, my real experience of Tulum (hint: it's not what you see on Instagram) and basically getting my ass humbled AF in the final stretch of 2020 ;)  
    Some topics I cover include: 
    The process of grounding after a nomadic lifestyle Why self-centeredness is not a bad thing What we *think* we need is often not what we *really* need What is a "dark night" of the soul, and how to work with and through it My authentic challenges and experiences moving to Mexico The polarity of massive challenge and big magic Why we need to be triggered to shake us out of our comfort zone and grow Surrendering into darkness to find the light The energy of vortex places on the planet and how they impact us Learning to make courageous and graceful pivots towards our true path Listening to the call of your heart and purpose Embodying our true purpose: to FEEL the full spectrum of emotions ....and more :)  Let's connect more!
    If any of this episode has spoken to you, please feel free to reach out to me on Facebook (facebook.com/kyates8) or through my website, and let me know what resonates with you! 🥰❤️ 
    I will be opening a few spots for private coaching in early 2021, so if you're interested, you can apply through my website:

    The Power of Embodiment and Sensuality w/ Nadia Munla

    The Power of Embodiment and Sensuality w/ Nadia Munla

    Ep. 22 - Today I'm sitting down with Nadia Munla, women's embodiment and intimacy coach, to discuss all things embodiment, sensuality, surrender, and feminine spirituality. We all know the importance of "slowing down" – but in a society designed to keep us spinning in our heads in "go-go-go" mode, it's a new form of empowerment to return home to our bodies and find our own truth and healing within. This episode is so potent for the times we are in right now – I highly recommend you give it at least one listen, and note down the many practices Nadia recommends for reconnecting to your inner power.

    In this episode, we dive into:
    Nadia's journey of moving from a life of hustle and grind life into one of embodiment and sensual alivenessOur society's epidemic of disconnection from our body wisdom  Rewilding and what animals can teach us about living fully The ways our mind-based culture keeps us disconnected from our body Using our five senses to experience sensuality Accessing divinity through going inward into the senses.  The difference between “masculine” and “feminine” forms of spirituality How to balance “doing” and “feeling”  Finding integration through combining structure and flow  Reaping the gifts of slowing down and simplifying in 2020 How to regulate our nervous systems for better health Using our breath as the building block and language of the reptilian brain to positively shift our physiological state  Why we don’t need complicated formulas to get through these times - and what we do need instead Where suffering actually comes from (different from where we think it does!)  Inner child work - how to mother and reparent our inner child The four feminine archetypes The power of surrendering into pain, and the difference between surrender and resignation Fear-based vs. love-based motivation Her co-creative visioning plan - 4 powerful questions to help you create an embodied vision based in surrender Resources from this episode:

Obsessed with this podcast and host

I find myself binge listening this podcast- it’s like a combination of the my interests plus Kristen’s personality is entertaining, wise and hilarious. It came at the perfect moment in my life and I couldn’t be happier I found this. I seriously feel like this has the potential to help so many people. It’s been a saving grace for me. I want to be best friends with her in real life- she’s my soul sista !!!!!

Perfect combo of inspiring thinking + practical takeaways

I LOVE Kristen's approach with Mindset Rebel! When I listen, I'm riveted. Her style is such a wonderful combination of philosophy and practice. Theory: Following your intuition - your heart, not your head. Allow yourself to break free of the Matrix (Yes!). Practice: using your body to escape from cycles of rumination - not necessarily your mind, which is what got you into the negative thinking pattern in the first place.

I've had ups and downs over quarantine - the emotional toolkit episode contains some specific strategies to take on what we're all dealing with. I'm implementing some of her awesome morning techniques from a recent episode - using a few simple actions like writing and moving your body to "skip the top layer of anxiety" of your mind in the morning. This spoke to me in the perfect moment.

Thank you, Kristen - please keep it coming!
