    199: Letting Go and Leading Forward: Embracing the New Paradigm

    Let go, trust, transcend, lead. These four words hold immense power and significance in our journey towards personal and collective growth. Today, I delve into the importance of embracing these principles in order to navigate the current energetic shifts and step into a new paradigm of leadership and life.
    We often hold onto things that are good, but not necessarily great. This episode encourages you to release anything that no longer serves your highest purpose and step into a new chapter that is more aligned with your authentic self. It's time to shed old beliefs, patterns, and relationships that no longer support your growth and embrace a life built on the foundation of the heart.
    The collective energy has been undergoing a major shift, with a focus on clearing out karma, ancestral trauma, and fear-based beliefs. Join me as we explore the importance of recognizing and releasing these deeply ingrained patterns that hold us back from reaching our full potential. By doing so, we can create space for new possibilities and pave the way for a more empowered and transcendent leadership journey.
    I also share some exciting news about the future of the show! I can't stress enough how impactful this episode is, and I truly believe it will resonate with many of you. If you're ready to let go, embrace change, and deepen your self-awareness, this episode is a must-listen.

    Memorable Quotes
    "My former lover and I broke up. And that then started this deep path of me, learning to come back to myself. And that was a three, four year journey. And that was lots of trials and tribulations in terms. And on that journey is when I realized, doing the work is hard to understand yourself, like really learning to understand yourself. There's so much noise and there's so many different opinions and there's so many different tools." [00:16:08] – Raj Jana
    "It reminds me of how important working with our nervous system is and really understanding ourselves. versus just, oh, the surrender thing, I'm going to quit my job and trust all the things. I mean, you could do that, but also what is that going to cost you in terms of how regulated you are? I know so many people want to do big things in the world and then just put themselves in such a stressful state, thinking that they're taking risks, or they're taking action and end up really becoming unregulated and emotionally unstable."

    197: From Comparison to Connection: Embracing Authenticity & Feminine Energy with Amy Natalie

    197: From Comparison to Connection: Embracing Authenticity & Feminine Energy with Amy Natalie

    Competition has long been ingrained in our society, particularly among women. From a young age, we are taught to compare ourselves to others, to strive to be better, and to believe that there is only room for one at the top. This toxic mindset has created a culture of competition and comparison, where women feel the need to constantly prove themselves and tear each other down in order to succeed. However, there is a shift happening.
    In this juicy episode, I had the pleasure of welcoming Amy Natalie, a Women's Empowerment Coach and Feminine Embodiment Guide. Amy has over a decade of coaching experience and specializes in helping women emerge as the most authentic, confident, and self-expressed versions of themselves. She believes that when we tap into our true selves, we can live a life of freedom, pleasure, and purpose. This episode will inspire you to embrace your uniqueness and step into your power unapologetically.
    Amy creates transformative spaces for women to experience radical healing and deep soul connection through her retreats. During our conversation, she shares her wisdom on how to tap into your feminine power and create a life of joy and fulfillment. You'll walk away with practical tips and insights on how to cultivate a deeper connection with yourself and others.
    I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed this conversation with Amy. Her power and magnetism are truly inspiring, and I know you will feel the same. This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in exploring feminine energy and leadership. Join us as we dive deep into topics of feminine power, radical healing, deep soul connection, and the importance of embracing your authentic self.



    Key Takeaways
    [00:03:34] Healing the competition wound.
    [00:04:57] Essence of the ego.
    [00:06:26] Sisterhood brings deep healing.
    [00:10:23] Interconnectedness of all beings.
    [00:12:03] Overcoming competition and comparison.
    [00:18:30] Diversifying needs and sisterhood.
    [00:20:16] Hunger for feminine freedom.
    [00:24:32] Embracing our multi-dimensionality.
    [00:31:21] Synchronized breath and pleasure.
    [00:32:47] Breath as psychedelic medicine.
    [00:37:00] Living in our truth.
    [00:40:52] Embracing vulnerability and messiness.
    [00:45:52] Raw and vulnerable leadership.

    Memorable Quotes
    "It's what makes us human. And when we can peel back that layer and really be seen and witnessed in that, we can dissolve the shame around it. When we hear other women speaking, what's going on for them, we're like, oh, okay, we're a lot more similar than I thought. And that's where a lot of the deep healing can happen." [00:06:40] – Amy Natalie
    "I think that when I say like safety is cultivated from within, it really is about being in the body. And a lot of the work that I do is around embodiment because our nervous system lives in our body. Our intuition lives in our body. Our truth lives in our body. And in our culture, we're so living from the neck up." [00:28:09] – Amy Natalie

    We discuss the importance of investing in ourselves and building our personal brand. Moe shares some valuable insights on how to get your name out there and make a lasting impact. He even recommends a thought-provoking book by Abraham Maslow called "The Farther Reaches of Human Nature," which delves into the concept of transcendence.
    So, my friends, if you're looking to elevate your leadership skills and gain insights from a true thought leader, this episode is a must-listen!

    Memorable Quotes
    "If you don't love yourself, trust yourself, respect yourself, you cannot be a leader. It's a hundred percent of prerequisite to truly have authentic self-respect before you could possibly ever think about ever leading someone else.” [00:08:40] – Moe Rock

    195: From Scarcity to Abundance: 5 Lessons I Learned from Embracing Scarcity

    195: From Scarcity to Abundance: 5 Lessons I Learned from Embracing Scarcity

    Scarcity is often seen as a negative and undesirable state to be in. It is associated with lack, limitation, and a sense of not having enough. However, in today’s episode, I challenge this perception and suggest that scarcity can actually teach us self-love. Scarcity is not primarily about money and material possessions, but rather about our beliefs and mindset. 
    Through my own experiences and insights, I’ll be sharing how scarcity can be a catalyst for personal growth and transformation. By embracing scarcity and understanding its role in our lives, we can extract valuable lessons and transform our relationship with wealth and abundance.
    This episode is particularly special to me because it reminds us that success is not solely defined by external factors such as money or material possessions. Rather, it is about finding ease, peace, and joy in the present moment. It's an inside job that requires us to work on our emotional well-being and personal growth. When we focus on our emotional and nervous system capacity, we can create sustainable success in all areas of our lives.
     
    I would love to hear your thoughts on this episode. Please feel free to share your feedback in your stories, emails, or even with a friend through a text message. Your support means the world to me, and it helps us spread these empowering messages to a wider audience.
     
    Key Takeaways
    [00:01:51] Seasons of growth and ease.
    [00:04:28] Scarcity and money mindset.
    [00:09:08] Resonance with toxic relationships.
    [00:14:30] Scarcity and not feeling enough.
    [00:19:37] Success is an inside job.
    [00:21:07] Redefining success and finding peace.
    [00:26:38] Self-love in moments of scarcity.
    [00:30:20] The power of resonance.
    [00:34:21] The well-roundedness of all of your life.
    [00:37:25] Scarcity and personal growth.



    Memorable Quotes
    "Scarcity has taught me that I was believing that I am not enough, that I will never have enough and no one else will also be enough for me. So, whether that's in partnership, whether that's in my coaching relationships, whether that's with my parents, it has shown up for me in a way of seeing the world through the lens of scarcity, seeing that the belief system that was operating was of not enough.” [00:14:30] – Carissa Johnsen
    "I am a success because I claim that I am because I know that I am. Why my definition of success was so warped is because it was so tied to money." [00:20:49] – Carissa Johnsen

    194: Embodying and Awakening Grace in the Heart: Opening Space for Transformation

    194: Embodying and Awakening Grace in the Heart: Opening Space for Transformation

    Did you know that my name, Carissa, actually means grace? Grace is not just a word; it's a frequency, a way of being. It's about living a graceful life, sharing gracefully, and embodying that energy in all aspects of our lives. When we tap into grace, everything feels peaceful and aligned. It's a journey of reconnecting with our soul wisdom and finding peace within ourselves. Success, to me, is synonymous with peace. If we are at peace, we are succeeding. Let's rewrite our version of success and allow old paradigms to crumble.
    In this week's episode, I dive deep into the profound concept of grace. Our journey towards experiencing our truest divinity and living from the heart space continues, and I can't wait to share these incredible insights with you all. Remember, the heart is the medium, the bridge between worlds. It's not something we find in the mind but rather awaken in the heart. As we listen to our hearts and get curious about grace, we tap into its transformative power. Let's explore what comes alive within us and embrace this beautiful journey of self-discovery.
    In these transformative times, living a graceful life becomes even more crucial. As we navigate the changes and challenges that lie ahead, sharing grace with one another and embodying that frequency will be our guiding light. Let's remember what is most important to us and embrace the power of grace in our daily lives. Together, we can create a more peaceful and graceful world.
    If you're ready to invite grace into your life and leadership, I invite you to listen to this episode now!
     
    Key Takeaways
    [00:01:06] Grace and its significance.
    [00:06:41] Asking for grace.
    [00:07:19] Embody grace and offer love.
    [00:11:09] The reciprocity of grace.
    [00:12:35] Grace is the bridge to love.
    [00:18:40] Making space for grace.
    [00:21:33] Living in the space of grace.
    [00:24:09] Success defined as peace.



    Memorable Quotes
    "Grace is the antidote for accessing love. Because sometimes it's hard to go from “I'm angry” to “I’m loving”. And if we can't access that state of consciousness, if we can't access that belief, if we can't tap into that, I think grace becomes the river, the water, the buoyancy, the boundlessness, the raft that we take on our journey to arriving at love.” [00:12:35] – Carissa Johnsen
    "How do I receive this frequency? How do I embody this in my life? The truth is you have to make space for it. It's part of the reason why I've been pausing every three hours, four or three minutes, because space cannot, Grace cannot enter a full cup." [00:17:13] – Carissa Johnsen

Christel Martina ,

Powerful insight, wisdom, love and authenticity

Carissa has a vulnerability and honesty that makes her so relatable, combined with a fierceness such as I’ve rarely seen, to ferret out truth and to help others heal. Her training and her insight are without match and her integrity is impeccable. Yes, impeccable is the word that I would use to describe this powerful force of nature. I’m so grateful she was brought into my life!! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Priestess of Passion ,

Clarity and purpose for a new paradigm

Carissa is very clear we are building a new earth, a new paradigm for living. This requires each of us to have skills tools, support, connection and points of focus to continue moving forward. We are not looking back. Carissa talks about who you become, the ways you choose to uncover, and listen to your truth, your inner wisdom and come into right relationship where you know in the depth of your heart and soul you have come into your leadership which comes from within. Great wisdom here...

SB Moses ,

This is one of my favorite shows to SHARE

Carissa is just one of those magnetic voices for internal change and growth! I know she typically teaches women, at least I think but I find myself binge listening to these shows more than one soo many nuggets in each of them, and I listen to a lot of these shows.

If you want to be the hero who gets the “THANK YOU FOR SENDING ME THAT PODCAST, changed my life” share this show. One of the best shows in my opinion!

Thanks Carissa!
