Aligning with Destiny and Activating Your Divine Feminine Energy and Inner Light

We often ask throughout our lives, what is my Destiny? Is there even such a thing as Destiny? Is there something I'm truly meant for or is it up to me to decide? Guest Carrie Hart firmly believes that we each have a personal Destiny that we can follow to achieve the greatest state of happiness and fulfillment in our lives. Carrie is an Author and Spiritual Explorer who has experienced a very powerful connection with what she calls Ataquay; the energetic field beyond ordinary time and space, where everything that is, was and will be exists in a state of pregnant possibility, the place of shared expanded consciousness—the place where everything is connected and seeming “coincidences” are more than just happenstance. She believes that we can all tap into this expanded consciousness and walk the path of our Destiny if we follow our intuition and in turn be guided toward our truth. On this episode, Carrie offers some fantastic insights on how to activate your divine Feminine energy to heighten intuition and receive guidance toward your greatest gifts, Soul's purpose, and align with your Destiny. Carrie then shares the importance and benefits of being in our own Sovereign truth, enhancing our intuition, connecting with higher wisdom, and honoring the light within us. Remembering that as Women, we have access to that power, it is our Destiny. Carrie also shares 7 Ways to Activate your Divine Feminine Energy and the Light of Self Love: Quiet your mind through Meditation Tune into intuition Ask for word of the day Each have a golden chord attached to Source/ soul Discover your Life’s purpose Develop a Spiritual Morning Routine  Choose to let go of your Voice of Fear & Speak up through courage Carrie Hart wants to offer others a simple gateway to Ataquay and share the best of the tools that helped her deepen her understanding of how we walk a path of destiny through a universe that is actively weaving a web of connections, and how that can greatly enhance the journey. Accessing Ataquay is something anyone can do, but it’s like following a well-worn path—the more you do it, the easier it is—and the more expansive the experience. And Carrie Hart’s tools lay down the stepping stones. Over the past 25 years, Carrie has explored Ataquay to bring creative, healing wisdom to those seekers looking for answers and guidance. She calls it “the place I love most in the world.”Learn more about Carrie and here work here:www.carriehart.com

Unconditional Vs Conditional Love: How to Achieve Ultimate Happiness and Self Acceptance

What would happen if you removed any conditions you have for loving yourself? What would it be like to have a fully expressed love and acceptance of yourself regardless of any outside circumstances, events, or situations in your life? This is the idea of unconditionality. That something can exist purely and eternally no matter what happens. Another word for this state could be, Heaven. When we live conditionally it means that we hold a thought, feeling or belief (I love myself, I accept myself, I believe in myself) only when certain outside circumstances support that thought, feeling, or belief. Should anything change, so does our feelings of love, belief, regard, and acceptance. This state of being could be referred to as, Hell. As it means you are at the whim of what happens to you, how other people treat you, what you're able to achieve or look like to maintain positive regard for yourself. Do you see the distinction?On this episode I go deeper into Conditional vs Unconditional love; how conditionality (fear) primarily governs our World in this current time and how moving into a state of unconditionality (love) will be the biggest game changer our World has ever seen. I explain some of the ways that conditional love show up within ourselves and in society, the repercussions of that, how to identify the difference between conditionality and unconditionality, and how to begin embody unconditionality which leads to true peace and freedom. Feel free to reach out to me to see how we can work together and send your questions, feedback, and requests for future solo episodes here: Whitney Walker, LMFTLicense # 107082www.WomenWaken.comhttps://www.psychologytoday.com/profi...Whitney@WomenWaken.comIG: @Womenwaken

Taking care of your body is essential in order to feel your best and to have longevity in your health. However, taking care of your body may not always look like you think it does. Every single person's body, genetics, and internal systems are different meaning the best diet and exercise plan differs between individuals.

Dr. Jen explains the importance of listening to your body, taking preventative action to reduce injury and damage to the body, and creating balance and healthy habits to enable improved aging.On this episode, Jen and I talk about the temptation to push our bodies to a certain size and shape or to aim for extreme fitness goals when what matters most is what suits you best, mentally and physically, and what is sustainable. As well as focusing on body acceptance and embracing ourselves as we are without condition. Jen also shares about the power of consistency over intensity to form a more loving relationship with our bodies, how to develop your physical and mental health, and achieve long-term success.Dr. Jennifer Sylvester, Doctor of Physical Therapy, started her private practice in 2014 providing concierge physical therapy, aquatic therapy, and wellness services in Silicon Valley and Santa Cruz.

Unlock Your True Potential: How To Erase Conditioning and Be Connected With The Universe

It's amazing how lost we can get in our minds. How easily other people's beliefs or opinions about us can begin to feel like our own truth. Yet what other people think is never our truth. We each have our own sovereign truth which is the key to personal peace and freedom. My guest this week, Renee Linnell, knows all too well how it feels to wake up to the shocking realization that she had lost herself after years of brainwashing from a Buddhist cult. Whether it's through the influence of others or of an addiction, trauma, or depression it can be hard to take the first steps back to yourself. Renee offers gentle and inspiring guidance on how to take that first step and move into a place of the greatest peace one can know.On this episode Renee and I discuss how to stop betraying ourselves due to low self-esteem and fear, how to move away from the messaging that we're not OK and need something or someone to fix us, and to realize that there's nothing holding us back because there are no conditions we have to meet to be worthy, lovable, and free. Renee is a former surf model, a professional Argentine Tango dancer, and a serial entrepreneur with an Executive Masters in Business Administration from New York University. She made her publishing debut in 2018 with The Burn Zone, a memoir of her experience as a cult survivor. She now has published her second book, Still on Fire: A Memoir.

Why Women Struggle Profoundly With Body Image and How We Can Begin to Break Free

If you feel like you spend an inordinate amount of time fixating on how you look, your size, and other aspects of your body, you are not alone. The majority of Women in the world struggle with body image issues and often experience an almost obsessive preoccupation with monitoring their looks. This battle with the body has become an epidemic in our World to the point where we often value how we look far above who we are. Yet it is possible to recalibrate this discrepancy and move ourselves closer to knowing our intrinsic value and worth, knowing our core values, and releasing this obsession with the external. On this, my very first solo episode, I speak directly to you, the audience, and share my thoughts, personal experience, and a bit of guidance about body image preoccupation, how powerfully it can impact our lives, and the first steps we can take to release its strong hold on us.
