    You’re Not Crazy: Trust Your Instincts When It Comes to Your Health (It Can Save Your Life!)

    You’re Not Crazy: Trust Your Instincts When It Comes to Your Health (It Can Save Your Life!)

    Still deep in a mold crisis, Rachel’s entire future shifted when a mystery mold man fell out of the sky and landed in Aruba. After a few minutes in her house with a flashlight, this man could tell Rachel one very important thing: she is not crazy. Even after being forced to leave her home, losing all her belongings and suffering from mold illnesses, the worst part of this journey for Rachel has been that nobody has believed her. No one has been able to see her in this trauma.
    This happens to us so much in life, especially as women. Our lived experiences are denied. When this happens, there is one thing that we must do: it is imperative that we trust our intuition. If the universe is pushing you toward something, that is likely the way forward. Tune in for an episode that will remind you that even in the hardest of times, the universe has your back.

    How To Make It Through a Crisis

    How do you make it through when your world is crumbling around you? In today’s episode, Rachel shares her best advice, resources, and practices when it comes to crisis management.
    The first thing we need to do is acknowledge when we’re in a crisis. Sometimes big life events feel manageable, while smaller things make us unravel.

Rachel defines what a crisis is and shares some personal examples from her own life of different crises she has moved through and the causes behind them. Ultimately, no one else can tell you when you’re in a crisis or not. It all depends on how you’re coping.
    If you’re having a hard time right now, tune in to learn the steps Rachel takes to keep her sanity in an insane world. Lower your expectations, take care of your basic needs, vent, feel, and move. The only way out is through.

    A Mold Nightmare: How to Cope When You Lose Everything

    A Mold Nightmare: How to Cope When You Lose Everything

    As of last week, Rachel received the devastating news that she has dangerously high levels of mold in her house. Her family has had to move out immediately, get tested for mycotoxins, find contractors, doctors and mold experts that can help, and they will possibly lose all of their belongings… including their home. Trigger warning – bring tissues for this episode.
    After years of taking great care of herself and her family (eating vegan, taking supplements, investing in water and air filtration systems, etc) it has been a complete mystery as to why Rachel is constantly feeling unwell. The answer came with the results to a mold test that told them to get out now.
    In today’s episode, Rachel shares openly about this entire experience. How did she find the mold in her house? What tests did she use? How can you get rid of mold? What impact does this have on your health and wellbeing? And if there is a solution to this… what is it? Tune in for the whole story, and send Rachel, Lea and Dennis lots of love in the coming weeks.

    Learn to Hold All Parts Of Yourself

    Learn to Hold All Parts Of Yourself

    What does self-love mean to you? We spend so much of our day-to-day lives rejecting our whole selves. When we feel bad, we usually try to make ourselves feel better rather than sitting with what is true for us in that moment. But how could this denial ever be considered self-love?
    As Rachel continues to battle pneumonia, she reflects on the mental stress of not feeling her best. Diving deeper, she uncovers a cyclical pattern rooted in deep childhood trauma as her daughter approaches the same age Rachel was when she first experienced her asthma attacks.
    Ultimately, life comes with ebbs and flows. If we reject certain parts of that experience, we reject ourselves. Self-love needs to be rooted in loving all parts of who we are. Tune in to hear Rachel’s journey toward self-love, and find a little more compassion for yourself along the way.

Miss the old - lots of negativity & drama

I used to look forward to everything Rachel put out. Online platform, podcast episodes, books etc. and I supported them all! I miss the old Yoga Girl who was full of so much light & empowerment. The podcast has turned into a place of constant complaining and Rachel seems to be a magnet for drama and negativity. For someone who talks as though she’s such an ally to the underprivileged she comes off incredibly tone deaf to her own (massive amount) of privilege.
