Monique and Daniela also talk about getting through moments of wanting to give up, the meaning of Saturn Returns, and why everything that exists comes from the Feminine.  In this episode Daniela and Monique talk about: Monique’s powerful life story.  How Monique found Astrology and how she uses it as a map to understand herself.  How Monique healed past trauma through the Moon Phases.  Saturn Returns: what is it mean and what happens?

Welcome to INHABIT! I am so happy to bring you this deep, raw, juicy conversation with Monique Ruffin Monique is the host of Rise Radio (listen at 12radio.com)a mama, a powerful life coach, a professional writer/blogger, and a tremendously gifted astrologer.  Today Monique and I are exploring healing the relationships we have with our mothers, fathers, and our ancestors in order to give ourselves and our families the gifts of forgiveness and freedom.  I highly encourage you to check out the incredible courses Monique has created! I will be in the Finding Our Fathers course beginning June 6th, 2018 and I would love to have you join us! In this episode: * The beginning of Monique's exploration into her own motherhood, and the journey of her mother, and her grandmother to gain deeper understanding of her own experience * What it means to see our parents as people, who have their own journeys * There are tremendous possibilities that open up when we release the storieswe have about our parents and the circumstances of our childhood * The energy of our parents is literally within us and we cannot escape it. To hold onto negative beliefs and feelings toward our parents is to be at war with ourselves * The science of how the experiences of our mothers are transmitted through our cells into multiple generations * The judgements we formed about our mothers become the judgements we make about all women * The judgments we formed about our fathers become the judgements we make about all men * The practicality of forgiveness as a gateway to FREEDOM * What we believe about our mother is what we believe about god * When we can identify what we believe, we can shift it * What we believe about our mothers is intrinsically linked to the type of mothers we are, the relationships we have with other women, and the relationships we have with our own bodies * To heal the relationship we have with the archetype of the Mother at the level of the heart and soul, we will heal the relationship we have to one another, to the Earth, and to life itself * Our cultural awakening to our intrinsic power as creative beings * Healing the shame we carry around the wrongs of our ancestors and choosing to forgive them   CONNECT WITH MONIQUE Email Monique at moniquecruffin@gmail.com Finding Our Mothers: Healing the Original Wound Course Finding Our Fathers Course Moon Manifestation Astrology Intensive Follow IN{HABIT} Podcast on Facebook, thru my Instagram!

A Story of Healing: Using Curiosity and Courage to Find Yourself with Monique Ruffin (Rebroadcast)

Having It ALL: Conversations about living an Abundant Loving Life

Today's episode is a rebroadcast of an episode from the first few weeks of the podcast. In it, I'm having an amazing conversation with Monique Ruffin. Monique Ruffin is a celebration of living. She is one of those people that folks say has “A beautiful soul”. And I completely understand why. Monique grew up in the neighborhood of Watts in Los Angeles. Yes, that Watts. It's where Sanford And Sons was set, and was where Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke duke it out in Training Day. That neighborhood is not known for many empowering things, but it’s where Monique called home. Growing up in an area impacted by crack, with parents in and out of jail, many wouldn’t have been surprised if Monique failed to transcend her environment. But she did, and in a big way. Monique is a mother, writer, creator, coach, radio host and group facilitator. But most of all she’s an example of what it looks like to live with heart, authenticity, courage, vulnerability and realness. In our conversation, Monique and I talk about her childhood, the lessons she’s learned as a mother, and how we can all grow beyond our circumstances. What you’ll learn in this episode: How to understand yourself so you can navigate life’s challenging circumstances The power of being curious 2 profound takeaways from motherhood
