What if sharing stories not to be defined by them, but to set them free, opens us up to reclaim and embrace ALL that we are! The messy, the imperfect, the mistakes, heartache, sadness and joy... all parts of our innate wildness no longer shamed into silence. When Women Speak... anything could happen. Welcome to the party!

    "oh, I just have to be me" a life changing realisation to more ease with guest Helen Amery

    "oh, I just have to be me" a life changing realisation to more ease with guest Helen Amery

    Helen Amery shares several game changing moments in this episode all around seeing through the stories created about who we are and what we're capable of. There's plenty to relate to and learn from listening to Helen's experience.

    Helen works with people one-to-one and in groups to reconnect them to their innate brilliance and to the real them that’s been hidden behind stories and conditioning.
    Having spent her life striving to learn, grow and develop, she was pretty horrified when around 40 a couple of challenging relationships made it obvious something wasn’t working. Despite all the development programmes and coaching she’d had, she found herself behaving in the very way she’d been coaching and training others not to. So now what?
    Fortunately she was led into exploring the essence of Buddhism which then led to discovering the Three Principles and Non Duality. Since the beginning of that exploration back in early 2018, she has been deeply immersed in learning, exploring, realising and reconnecting to that innate brilliance we all are, and which also naturally reveals the unique flavour of life that is us.
    A pivotal moment came in 2020 when she realised “oh, I just have to be me” and another level of ease with life appeared.
    This is what Helen helps others to remember – that you are already innately brilliant and that what you want, and what we want, is you ‘just being you’.

    Blossoming Into Your Aligned HellYes Life with guest Joy Perreras

    Blossoming Into Your Aligned HellYes Life with guest Joy Perreras

    I am joined in this conversation by Personal Freedom Guide Joy Perreras. As a Certified Spiritual Coach, Joy guides women through her one-on-one coaching, workshops, and
    retreats, undressing their hearts, releasing stuck emotions, allowing more joy in, learning the art of letting go, and rediscovering their deepest soul's expression.
     
    Joy’s beautiful vision is for soul-led 'seasoned' women to reclaim the true nature of their divine power... so they embody deep liberation and become the elixir of love and truth for humanity. Living their Aligned HellYES Life!
    Joy clearly lives and breathes the work she does and you'll get to hear how she shows up in the world in this conversation and how she encourages and supports other women to do the same.

    As a side note:
    Joy touches on a sensitive topic of infertility and how at the time this experience left her feeling broken as a woman and not good enough. For anyone listening that feels the way Joy once did I asked Joy after the Podcast recording what helped her see things differently and realise that infertility did not make her less of a woman.

    What helped Joy was the realisation of what was real and what was a narrative creating stories about who she is, who others are and what her circumstances mean.
    The unhelpful thought loop Joy got into about what her body couldn't do and what that meant about her and her life compounded the situation, and none of the stories about herself were true. AND of course none of this could have happened any other way. We are only ever behaving based on our understanding in that moment so please be gentle with yourself.
    Here are some suggestions if you resonate with what Joy experienced. Start being more in your body and really honouring the body, this is your vehicle to me intimately connected to throughout your life here on Earth. Nourish it, listen to it, take care of it and empower yourself to be responsible for your body and your health. Know what it needs, and what doesn’t support it to function well. A lot of suffering comes from wanting what's happening to be different and buying into stories about what's happening rather than facing what's real and taking the action that makes sense to take. 

    Cultural conditioning like you should have a baby or you should be thinner or you should have short hair or long hair and so on all adds to us believing life should look and be a certain way and we should be a certain way too. Let’s support each other to know all of us is welcome.

    Making the Uncomfortable Comfortable - Asking Powerful Questions with guest Marissa Loewen

    Making the Uncomfortable Comfortable - Asking Powerful Questions with guest Marissa Loewen

    In this episode guest Marissa Loewen shares how her curious nature and being unafraid to ask challenging questions is met with different responses - from gratitude to being blocked on social media. Marissa has the ability to make the uncomfortable comfortable if you are willing to question your ideas and beliefs and the way you think things should be done.

    I knew Marissa would have plenty to say and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to what was shared and all the thought provoking questions that arose. Plenty to reflect on and consider for the year ahead and how you want to show up and be with yourself and others.
    You will hear many questions put forward during the episode such as:
    ·      Where could you have more joy in your life?
    ·      How can I be more intentional?
    ·      How can I bring more ease into my life?
    ·      How does what I do impact?


    Other questions to consider for society and social change also came up such as:
    ·      Why are we maintaining systems that hurt people?
    ·      How do we make this great for everybody?
    ·      How do we get to a basic minimum for everyone?
    ·      How do we help billionaires distribute their wealth (if they want to)?
    ·      What power structures are being maintained in philanthropy as it is?
    ·      Why can’t we take an idea and make it better?
     
    Marissa is a Transformational Business Coach, Community Catalyst and Creative Entrepreneur. Marissa's first foray into owning a business began at age 11, when Marissa wanted to sell cold milk and chocolate milk to classmates at lunchtime. With permission from Marissa's grade school, a janitor's closet was turned into a thriving food service business. With a corporate background in media, marketing, communications, online sales and web design, Marissa created one of the first pop up companies in North American focusing on made-local and art sold in temporary retail shops, art galleries and large scale events, partnering with Etsy Canada. 


    Marissa works with small business owners to create the rules in order to create thriving, resilient, prosperous businesses that fuel the business owner. In addition to a signature system for creating profit and ease in businesses, personal coaching and an online digital profit planner, Marissa also is launching her first podcast called The Little Podcast of Big Questions.

    Let's Talk About Sex with guest Leah Carey

    Let's Talk About Sex with guest Leah Carey

    In this episode we get to talk about sex with guest Leah Carey,  a sex and intimacy coach working with women who want to move beyond laying-back-and-accepting-whatever-their-partner-does-to-them, and are ready to become equal co-creators of their sexual experience.
    Leah is no stranger to Podcasts because she’s the host of her own show called Good Girls Talk About Sex.
    In this episode as well as sharing her own stories, Leah speaks to some of the reasons sex can be more complicated than it need be and what can happen when rather than having open communication we default to our conditioned ways of behaving in regards to sex and intimacy.
    This work was not an obvious life choice for Leah.  Growing up with an abusive father, she learned to be a VERY “good girl.”
    She got involved in a series of emotionally abusive relationships, always convinced that SHE was the problem – not pretty enough, smart enough, or sexually skilled enough. And because she wasn’t having pleasure during sex, so she was convinced she was broken.
    At age 42, life threw Leah an opportunity to build a new story: with both parents gone and no siblings, she could put aside the family mythology of the “good girl.”
    She began challenging her old beliefs about worthiness, attractiveness, and desirability. Watching her phenomenal growth, friends started seeking her out to help them do the same.
    Today, Leah works with women to reflect their true sexual nature back to them, without the judgment, shame, or fear that can get in the way of seeing it for themselves.
    She's a guide for embracing the sexuality that is innately yours, no matter what it looks like. Her clients sink so deeply into their true sexuality that the old version of themselves that was scared to speak up for their own needs feels like a mirage from another lifetime.

    Living in a State of Grace with guest Sara Priestley

    Living in a State of Grace with guest Sara Priestley

    In this episode we are joined by intuitive coach Sara Priestley who’s also a guide in our exploration of true nature, a poet and mother to four cats who you can listen out for in the background.
    Sara and I speak about enjoying life as it appears, the usefulness of knowing your Human Design, what Lenormand cards are and how they can support you to talk to yourself at a level where conditioning doesn’t apply. Sara also shares her take on storytelling and why sometimes it’s not appropriate to tell everyone your business. Sara suggests a question you could ask yourself “is telling this story advancing my freedom or humanity?” 
    The work Sara does now follows previous careers in IT consultancy, the investment sector, teaching massage & Pilates, and collecting post-grad qualifications. Her first poetry collection, quintessence: the poetry of true nature, is available from Amazon.
