Vanessa Bennett Is Grateful To Heal Intergenerational Trauma: The Unconscious, Radical Responsibility, & True Intimacy
When we embark on our healing journey (which is a journey of a lifetime!), it is so important to acknowledge the truths that we are not only healing from our own personal experiences but we are also healing from intergenerational trauma and from collective wounds. Our special guest Vanessa Bennett - LMFT, Author, Facilitator, Podcaster of the Cheaper Than Therapy Podcast, and Mama - offers us professional insights and perspectives that inform us of what it takes to really heal. As we expand on the healing journey, we explore the significance of healing in relationships and allowing ourselves to be seen in our messiness, our imperfection, our not having it all together  - emphasizing that vulnerability is required to experience true intimacy.Other topics that we discuss in this conversation include (but are not limited to): depth psychology, the collective unconscious, collective healing, mind body spirit interconnectedness, radical responsibility, mirroring relationships, healing in a healthy way, and codependency.

LaNia Roberts Is Grateful To Know God: Rewriting Your Story, Being Real With Yourself, & Trusting Life

LaNia Roberts Is Grateful To Know God: Rewriting Your Story, Being Real With Yourself, & Trusting Life
When we dream to live an unconventional life, we must fully accept that it requires us to walk an unconventional path. And unconventional paths are paths that require us to fully embrace the unknown, practice radical acceptance, and deeply trust along the way that we are being led to where we dream to be.For LaNia Roberts, her unconventional dream life includes being an artist. This unconventional dream life of hers is one that has manifested and in this conversation, she shares with us what walking the unconventional path has looked and felt like. A large part of the journey for her has been the reclamation of her voice, the rewriting of many stories she'd made agreements with that weren't true, and lots of keeping it real with herself. We talk art as a tool for self-expression and liberation, redefining beauty, truly allowing yourself to feel what you feel, healing and the boredom that comes with healing, letting go of unaligned relationships and beliefs, uncovering truths and lies, and so much more.

Sabrina Flores Is Grateful To Heal Over Time: Unrealistic & Realistic Expectations For Healing & Healthy Relationships

Sabrina Flores Is Grateful To Heal Over Time: Unrealistic & Realistic Expectations For Healing & Healthy Relationships
Do we need to be fully healed to experience a healthy relationship? What is required of us to experience a healthy relationship? Are our partners at all responsible for our healing? What if we have different attachment styles? How do we know whether or not we should walk away from a relationship? These are all questions (amongst others) that we explore and expand on in this conversation with Trauma-Informed Love Coach, Sabrina Flores.  At a time where we have access to so many varying (and conflicting) words of advice surrounding healing and healthy relationships, it can feel conflicting to know what advice to follow and not to follow. What's beautiful about this conversation and about speaking with Sabrina Flores is that she vulnerably, openly shares with us her own personal stories (past and present) that support her coaching.This is an insightful episode all about the healing journey, healthy relationships, and healing in healthy relationships.Follow Sabrina On InstagramWork with Sabrina 1-on-1Explore More of SabrinaSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Justin Tristao Is Grateful To Be Of Service: What Is Healthy Masculinity & How To Heal Unhealthy Masculinity

Justin Tristao Is Grateful To Be Of Service: What Is Healthy Masculinity & How To Heal Unhealthy Masculinity
Living in a society that encourages unhealthy masculinity creates a society that suppresses feminine energy, which is the energy of surrender, of trust, of nourishment, of intuitive knowing. We are living in a time now where the masculine and feminine energies that exist within us individually and collectively are being awakened and balanced.Especially over the last few years, we've grown aware of the unhealthy, wounded, toxic masculine traits that have driven us towards disconnection and depletion. We've begun to experience the rise of feminine energy, as we grow called to let go of the need to control, of the need to know it all, and rest in the present moment. This conversation, with our special guest Justin Tristao, gifts us clarity revolving healthy and unhealthy masculinity. We expand on the healing and awakening journey of both the masculine and feminine, and the responsibilities we have as individuals in this journey of healing and awakening.Topics we touch on include: The gratitude of healthy masculines & femininesThe masculine-favored society we live inBlockages that manifest in the unhealthy masculineLife changes that we experience as we begin to healThe importance of safe spacesTaking responsibility for our healingPerpetuating generational cyclesHow children are great teachersRegulating your nervous system/emotionsFollow Justin On InstagramPrivate Mentorship with JustinSubscribe To Justin's Mailing ListSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Arielle Estoria Is Grateful To Feel Everything: Returning To Your True Self, Defining Home, & Life Unfolding

Arielle Estoria Is Grateful To Feel Everything: Returning To Your True Self, Defining Home, & Life Unfolding
What if all of life is a journey of unfolding into your true Self? And what if there were phases to this unfolding? Our guest, Arielle Estoria, shares with us the five phases of our life unfoldment, which she expands on in her latest book, The Unfolding: An Invitation to Coming Home To Your True Self.Actor, Poet, and Author, Arielle, observed her becoming and unbecoming in the last few years and noticed that coming home to your true Self is a process. To Arielle, we awaken to the changes that need to happen, we grieve who we once were while we create space for who we're becoming, we healingly piece our Self and our life back together, we open our Self up to embrace the Light within and without, and we ultimately end up home - as our true Self. In this conversation, Arielle and I explore the parts of her story that revealed and clarified these phases leading her back home. We talk about how there is a lot of unbecoming in becoming, how dismantling takes place when new foundations are built, how what others may be envisioning for us may not actually be for us, and beyond.

Madeline Popelka Is Grateful To Embody Compassion: Healing From PTSD, Generational Trauma, & Validating Yourself
PTSD symptoms don't always show up right after a traumatic experience. Sometimes the symptoms arrive years later when you least expect. For our special guest, Madeline Popelka - who is the Founder of one of the largest healing communities on Instagram and Author of the recently published book, You're Going To Be Okay - she didn't experience her PTSD symptoms that stemmed from childhood and generational trauma until her late twenties.In this conversation, Madeline and I talk about the healing journey and what that has looked (and felt) like for her. We expand on one of her most important lessons she learned on her journey - to hold onto the goodness and allow yourself to experience good feeling feelings, such as joy. We acknowledge the truth that even positive change can feel triggering for those healing from trauma and other truths as well. This is an honest and encouraging conversation between two women who have experienced trauma and have actively chosen (and continue to choose) to heal. Other topics we touch on include:Asking for help and support"Small" traumaThe myth that PTSD is a choiceTrauma anniversariesCreating safe space for trauma survivorsBecoming a truer version of youVisit Madeline's websiteFollow Madeline on InstagramSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Be Here, Now: The Practice & Power of Being In The Present Moment

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Be Here, Now: The Practice & Power of Being In The Present Moment
Imagine being able to look back at your life and say, “I was present for all of it.” I don’t know about you but I desire to be able to genuinely say that. Being present has been my main mental, physical and spiritual practice for the past year now and, as time passes, I continue to expand my conscious awareness as to why being present is so powerful. I have truly come to fully believe that being present is the best thing we can be. It is in the present moment where we are our most powerful - not just because when we are present we take our power back from the past and familiar future but also because when we are present, we are in a state of flow and in a state of receptivity. We become open and receptive to divine intelligence, divine guidance and divine inspiration. Being present is a practice. And it is so worth the practice. In this episode, I share with you some of my reflections and realizations that have come from my practice of being present. My intention is to have you walk away from listening to this episode feeling greater clarity, confidence, and comfort regarding being here, now. Other topics I touch on include:one of my most sobering, awakening realizationswhat "familiar future" meansbeing in survival modewhat "giving our power away" meanswhy being present is a practicewhy we already know how to be presentSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Shaman Redwood Is Grateful For Family: Finding Your Purpose, Being Present & Shamanic Healing
"I can really trust I am fulfilling my purpose, as long as I am Being present," shares Shamanic Healer, Spiritual Teacher, & Author, Shaman Nabeel Redwood, as he expands on finding your purpose. For Shaman Redwood, "finding your purpose" is less about pursuing and fulfilling a destination and more about Being fully in the present moment. Inspired by his book, "Inner Peace, Outer Power: A Shamanic Guide To Living Your Purpose," this conversation is full of Shamanic perspectives, insights, and teachings on approaching and responding to life differently.At a time where he was battling with depression, aligning with Shamanism changed Shaman Redwood's life. We touch on his Shamanic healing and awakening journey, shifting his relationship with depression, as well as purpose, and expand on practicing acceptance, inner-peace, and presence. This is a beautiful conversation on, essentially, receiving the journey as the gift, rather than the destination.Purchase Shaman Redwood's BookFollow Shaman Redwood on InstagramExplore More of Shaman RedwoodSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful For Her Exes: Being Grateful For Relationships That Ended

Jocelyn Is Grateful For Her Exes: Being Grateful For Relationships That Ended
Hating on our exes honestly makes no sense to me. I wouldn’t have the healthy relationships I have now without my exes. I wouldn’t be who I am today without my exes. The acknowledgement of these two truths alone is like… why wouldn’t I be grateful for my exes? And I'm not just referring to past lovers and partners. I'm referring to all my exes - ex friends included.In my opinion, being grateful for our exes is a really healing, healthy and mature thing to do (when it's genuine of course). My intention in sharing this conversation with you is to inspire you to be grateful for your exes (and your past in general) in such a way where you take your power back and move on with your life as a wiser version of you. I expand on why we need to evolve from hating on our exes, why being grateful for our past is powerful, why I personally am grateful for my exes, and why you can be grateful for your exes, too. I also offer you some shifts in perspective regarding break ups. Cheers to being grateful for relationships that began and ended.Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Sarah Kim Is Grateful For This Season: Being In Transition, Owning Your Passions, & Becoming A Mom
Being in transition is hard. Owning your passions is hard. Becoming a mom... is hard. But just because it's hard, doesn't mean you're incapable. Just because it's hard, doesn't mean you're doing it wrong. Just because it's hard, doesn't mean you should give up. In this conversation with Founder of By Way of Us, Sarah Kim, we expand on various seasons of life that feel hard and how to navigate these hard seasons. We expand on the seasons where we know what we're being pulled from but don't yet know what we're being pulled towards. We expand on the seasons where we've let go of a past version of our Self and our life but haven't fully stepped into our renewed Self and life. We also expand on the seasons where we not only have fully stepped into our renewal but owned it. We touch on being true to your Self, the importance of vulnerability, and gaining a newfound confidence. If you're in transition, in any way, this conversation is especially for you!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Manifest Healthy Relationships: How To Attract Who & What You Deserve
Over the course of the past year, I have been deepening and developing relationships that feel like answered prayers (and they totally are). It's no coincidence that the year I begin to manifest healthy relationships in my life that are good for my mind, body, and Spirit, followed the couple of years I spent turning inward. Though I still have so much to learn about healthy relationships and about my own Self, I've gotten to a point where I feel confident enough to have this conversation with you about attracting the healthy relationships you deeply desire and deserve.In this episode, I share my reflections and realizations regarding manifesting healthy relationships. I also share a bit about my past relationships and why it's important we observe those. Other topics I touch on in this conversation include: inner-child healing, feeling grateful for unhealthy relationships, subconscious programming and conditioning, shadow work, turning inward, feeling overwhelmed, being patient, and more! There are some affirmations for you in the end, too.Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Be Disciplined: A Successful Life Is A Disciplined Life
Some are for discipline. Other are against discipline. And for a while, I wasn't sure whether I was for it or against it but I've come to the clarity that I am absolutely for it. I not only believe that a successful life is a disciplined life but I believe that discipline is a part of nature, and if nature weren't disciplined, all of life would cease to exist! Also, what if I told you that you are disciplined? Everyday, you are disciplined. You are actually really good at being disciplined. The focus then, really, isn't how to become a disciplined person but to be consciously aware of and intentional about how you're disciplined and what you're being disciplined for. In this conversation, I share my personal reflections and realizations regarding discipline. We also expand on the benefits of discipline. My intention with this episode is to shift your perspective on discipline and gift you a deeper understanding!Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Hilary Jackendoff Is Grateful For Self-Inquiry: Turning Inward, Honoring Your Energy, & Being Your Own Teacher

Hilary Jackendoff Is Grateful For Self-Inquiry: Turning Inward, Honoring Your Energy, & Being Your Own Teacher
When life gets tough, most of the time, people just want easy answers. So they seek for answers outside of themselves - online, in relationships, at work. And while some external findings do bring forth temporary clarity, it's never the clarity that brings forth long-lasting results. The answers most of us are seeking are answers that are only found when we stop searching outside of us and turn inward. Two years living as a sannyasin (yogic monk) at an ashram and eight years fully immersed in a guru-based, Tantric Yogic tradition, Hilary Jackendoff ultimately came to the realization that she would never find the freedom she was seeking if she kept searching outside of her Self. In this conversation, we expand on the journey of turning inward and learning how to be (as well as the importance of being) our own teacher. Hilary is an Ashram-trained Yoga Nidra and Meditation Teacher, Teacher Trainer, and Human Design Reader. You can explore her services here and follow her on Instagram here.Other topics we touch on in this conversation include (but are not limited to):seeking your purposereclaiming your powerhonoring your energysuffering in lifepracticing self-acceptancepracticing letting gothe importance of rest and relaxationyoga nidrahuman designSupport the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!

Jocelyn Is Grateful To Allow Her Self to “Start Over”: Pivoting In Relationships, In Career, In Life
03-01-2023
Jocelyn Is Grateful To Allow Her Self to “Start Over”: Pivoting In Relationships, In Career, In Life
One of the most important perspectives I gained in regards to "starting over" and pivoting in life is that... when we intuitively feel called to start over and pivot, it's a sign that we've completed a cycle and it's time to move onto a new one. This perspective of completion gifted me a sense of wholeness, which encouraged me to move onward and upward.I write "starting over" in quotations because I, personally, don't believe we're ever really starting over. I believe we're always starting over with experience and experience doesn't leave us empty handed in our endings and beginnings. I expand on this in this episode and I also expand on the various types of pivots I've experienced in the past couple of years, why fearing pivoting is rooted in lack and limitation, the weight of resistance leading to surrender, and more! I also offer some reflectional prompts and affirmations."At the end of the day, when all is said and done, if you want to grow and expand into your higher potentials, you have to allow your Self to start over. You have to allow your Self to pivot. You will only grow more burdened and confined when you resist your renewal. And you are so worthy of experiencing your higher potentials, in every aspect of your life."Support the showThank you for bringing this podcast into your present moment and thank you for consciously listening!
