We will talk about the how, the why, and explore the paths and spiritual practices of conscious entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Instead of sharing formulas that worked for someone else, we will have thought-provoking conversations that will help you find your own WOKE way in this WIRED world.

Her curiosity to learn more about her Mapuche roots and connection to the land brought her to the exploration of the sacred. Although her family is Mapuche, Florencia has found a strong calling to the Maya traditions and has felt a deep connection to the land of Guatemala, where she feels most at home.

She has worked with Maya elders from Guatemala, studied at Las Piramides Del Ka-- a metaphysics training that dives deep into the consciousness of dreams and meditation, has been working with rebirthing (a breathing modality) since the age of 8 with further training in her late teens, and received her yoga certification from Laughing Lotus in 2013.

In 2016, Florencia and her brother started a distribution company known as Cacao Lab to bridge the gap between the modern culture and the indigenous communities. Her mission is to expand the hearts and minds of those who are ready to wake up.

Podcast cover

Intuitive healer Chloe Elgar started her business journey as a holistic nutritionist and was quite successful at it. She had a history of severe eating disorders herself, which made her very good at helping others find peace with food. The problem was, somewhere deep inside she knew that it wasn’t fully aligned with who she was.

In this episode, we discuss:
  • Using psychology and holistic nutrition to heal your relationship with your body
  • How Chloe was visited by spirits as a child
  • Running a successful holistic nutrition and finding the courage to admit that it wasn’t aligned
  • The important power of rest
  • Pivoting her brand and social media presence from food to being a psychic guide
  • Tools you can start developing now to connect to your intuition
  • How the emotions you’re experiencing are an indicator of your alignment

Rank #20: 61: Social Media Energy Hygiene — 5 Practices That Work

Podcast cover
Read more

Energetic transmissions through social media are real. It’s natural that scrolling on Instagram makes you feel all sorts of feelings. You may be picking up on the energy of someone you’re following. Or maybe you have experienced getting aware of emotions within yourself that previously went unacknowledged. It’s especially true when the world or communities around you are going through major social, political and economic events.

When it comes to energy exchange, social media is no different from the physical realm. Seeing a single Instagram post might leave you feeling moved and inspired, or completely wrecked.

I discovered the concept of “Energy Hygiene” through a podcast on shamanism years ago, while taking my daily walk through Central Park to my then full-time job. 

Energy hygiene is all about taking charge of your energy and having the tools keep your energetic field (including conscious and subconscious feelings and emotions) clear and centered.

In this episode, I share the 5 tools and practices that have personally helped me keep my energy protected and clear, no matter how noisy and charged my social media feed gets.

I’m sharing these with you with the intention of supporting you in using social media as a tool to help you connect and grow. This is the foundation of using social media as a manifestation tool.
