35 - Seasonal Shifts

Welcome back for Season 2 of the Holistic PT Podcast, friends. Cheers to you for being here. My plea to you and the 'poddy world' this season is simple: More me, more you - more untamed, please. Away with the filtering and prettied up topics, k? Here's to conversing wisely and undecorated - more organic than ever before. Episode 35 is a dance with curiosity and self-adoption (the opposite of self-abandonment). It's a celebration of self-understanding and deep appreciation for you and your capacity to regulate and stay with your senses. To linger within your body and elevate yourself into a space where more choice, power, peace and freedom is available. Shall we?

34 - Meeting A Bigger You

What does change look like to you? For me, it looks like distancing myself from all external pressure and expectation and choosing a bigger version of myself, one who represents the change I desire. I visualise every trait, behaviour, action, decision and emotion that this ideal version of myself would possess, and I become her. I choose bigger than the habitual version of myself that I know now. Another way to put this: Instead of worrying about how to change (and all the steps and checkboxes I need to tick off to validate I’m on the right track to my change), I become the change before it’s here. The scary-fun part? I never know what/who this new version of myself is or how her presence will shake things up in my known world (my businesses, relationships, friendships etc). When we sense change is required or we’re on the precipice of shedding a loose layer of ourselves, the work is an inside job because ultimately what we’re breaking away from is an attachment to the outside world. In today’s episode, I share a more heart-opening approach to creating change on any level, for any area of your life, and internally. I’ll walk you through meeting a bigger version of yourself and why this is the most powerful practice for growth and transformation.

33 - Meditation Frustration

There’s a point in my meditation where my mind begins to speak louder than my body. I hit a wall or point of frustration and I begin to doubt, judge and question my meditative practice. Exploring this crossroad has been life-changing for me and I’m excited to share why in this episode. Meditation frustration is absolutely necessary if we are to explore new possibilities and move to a higher state of being. When we stay, we are saying yes to something different and something bigger than the acceptance of who we were before we started our meditation. Our role in meditation is to meet the invisible wall and frustration where it is and stay. This is the action that leads us to create real change in our lives. It is in these exact moments where we’re on the cusp of something far far bigger. Next time you sit down to meditate, whether you’re new to the craft or a seasoned meditator, sit down with the intention to get up as a bigger version of the you who sat down. Allow your meditation to be more urgent than the tasks at hand (because it is). Allow your frustration to lead you to a frequency that will take care of every single one of those tasks, and from a higher state of being.

32 - Body Shame

This episode is dedicated to all women experiencing shame around their body.Shame is one of our primary core emotions and in today’s episode, I share with you the in’s and out’s of shame separate to the body.This is not an A-Z guide on how to ‘never feel body shame again’. A goal like this is unattainable and as a result, only perpetuates more shame. In today’s episode, we will explore shame as an emotion, the ways we project our shame onto our body, and how to be with our shame rather than trying to escape it.When we’re willing to place our attention to our shame as an emotion separate from our body, we learn that our body is not, never was, and never will be, the problem or cause of our shame.

31 - Owning Your Greatness

Greatness isn’t bigger than you, and it’s not something we do. It’s who we are. Greatness doesn’t favour creatives over accountants, and it doesn’t waiver or increase or decrease as a result of being more productive or by achieving more tasks in a day. Greatness is your birthright, and this episode explores how to tap into and access its endless channel of unwavering support and possibility. Many humans (myself included) learned that greatness is something to acquire or look for. We learned that it is separate from or beyond us, and we learned to trust these ideas over our own knowing. In today’s episode, I will help you appreciate, access and reclaim your greatness, without having to hustle harder, work longer hours, change your body, or go on a ‘journey’ of self-discovery. If you resonate with this episode and the ways I teach then my 9-month Heal her program will serve you deeply. Apply here no later than October 30th 2020. It would be an honour to work with you, love.

30 - Dismantling Diet Culture

In today’s episode, I gently unpack diet culture and why we feel like our body is never enough and what to do about it. Diet culture is a belief system that emotionally and psychologically manipulates us into believing that our body and it’s shape and size, is the reason we are not happy/healthy/worthy. It encourages us to trade our intuition and joy for rules, deprivation and self-punishment to meet an ‘ideal’ standard that is, for almost all of humanity, unachievable and unsustainable. In this episode, I gently unpack diet culture and offer some insight and tools to help you liberate yourself from diet culture conditioning, so you can begin reclaiming your power in the area of your body and overall well-being. If you resonate with this episode and the ways I teach then my 9-month Heal her program would serve you deeply. Apply here no later than October 30th 2020.

28 - Heal Her

This episode is an invitation for you to revisit your dance with the idea that you already have everything you need. Heal Her is my 9-month signature self-reclamation program designed to bring women to a place of I am enough through self-administered healing. We simply access and tap into what already exists within you. In today’s episode, I break down what Heal Her is, who she’s for, how much she costs, what’s required from you, how to apply and how I personally work with you to bring you the gift that is reclaiming your power. My job is to help you harness all that you already are and shed light on how all of who you are is a gift. I do not guide you. I walk with you, beside you, I work with you. This episode unpacks and re-visits my online program, Heal Her. You’ll hear about the ways it has morphed into something even more beautiful and more of my story and personal shares. If you’re here you’re most likely curious about me, not my program. You’re curious about the woman I am, how I hold myself, the words I write, the ways I teach, the sense of calm and love I express, while also standing up for what I believe in. You’re curious about the life I have, the businesses I’ve built, the ways I create freely, and perhaps even my vulnerability in talking about hard things and sharing from my heart. You’ve probably heard my story (episode 1) and are curious about how a woman goes from anxiety episodes, panic attacks, perfectionism and controlling everything, to trusting life so implicitly while following her joy. If you resonate with this episode, my work, my energy, my stories, and my teachings, submit your application here no later than October 15th 2020. Your application form will be delivered directly to me and will help me feel who you are and if Heal Her is a good fit for you, or not. I offer a money-back guarantee and I work with 10-15 women at a time. We begin November 1st 2020 with my next intake for Heal Her being mid-late 2021. It would be an honour to facilitate this journey with you.

27 - Empowered Positivity

The power of positivity is revealed to us when used to seek the good but not as a byproduct of avoiding the ‘bad’ (or uncomfortable). Does that make sense, love? When we use positivity to pull away from our discomfort as a result of feeling deeply exposed (unsafe/vulnerable), we bypass the opportunity to express ourselves fully (freedom). To dance with our discomfort is a beautiful thing. And often we begin our dance somewhat consciously and end it unconsciously, using positivity as a way to divert away from the discomfort that has arisen as a result of expressing our fear/shame/anger/insert uncomfortable feeling. E.g. We share our feelings and follow up with ‘but at least I still have x’ or ‘my problems aren’t as bad as other peoples’. Or. A friend shares her hardship with you and you say ‘it’ll be OK, just be positive’. Thus, completely severing ourselves from our discomfort. Often, positivity is reflexive (as is sarcasm) and is used to create a sense of safety; For the person experiencing discomfort and for the person witnessing it in someone else. It is my hope that you find the courage to dance with your discomfort and let it lead you back into your heart, where there is plenty of room for it to move and dissipate. Positivity can then become a lens with which you see the world through not as a way to find safety and comfort, but as a way to lift your vibe and see/sense the magic.

26 - Alchemising Fear With Love

Remaining in my integrity and truth has felt more challenging than ever before. I’ve witnessed myself recently move reactively from fear multiple times. I’ve been swept up in the bellowing energy of the world and, the louder it “feels”, the more I struggle to discern what’s theirs (energy/opinion/truth) and what’s mine. I’ve had to drop in countless times each day and ask myself a very simple and truth-provoking question: Am I coming from love or fear? Am I rooted IN love or am I rooted IN fear? The key element that I am reminded of in these moments is that: Fear begets fear and love begets love. In other words, moving from fear devolves me into reactivity and survival (defend to the end), and moving from love lengthens and expands my capacity for more and more wholeheartedness. And when the heart is wide open we are LIMITLESS (love is one of the highest vibrational frequencies there is). Moving from love at a time like now is the necessary hard. Necessary, because more love must be funnelled to those parts of our psyche that feel exposed right now and, hard because moving from fear tends to occur unconsciously. If you are unequivocally honest with yourself right now, which would you say you’re rooted in? Love? Or fear? If you answered fear, I’m with you. Let’s champion each other as we start planting seeds of love amidst the chaos.
