  • 106: Breaking Free From Perfectionism

    25/05/2021 Duration: 27min

    Today I am diving into a conversation about perfectionism because if I were to be completely honest, this is something I am really navigating at the moment. Perfectionism has been playing out in my business in a big way lately and it has been stopping me from expressing my messages and sharing my creations. Breaking free from perfectionism is not always easy, so I wanted to share some of the practices I have been working with to help me. Healing this pattern requires us to face our fears of being imperfect and not good enough, detach from the outcome, release external validation and instead return to the joy and inner fulfilment of what we are doing and creating. In this episode I cover: - How perfectionism blocks our authentic self-expression and creativity - Returning to your joy and why is the key to getting unstuck - Being guided by your inner fulfilment rather than external validation - How to embrace your imperfections, mistakes and messiness - Why releasing perfectionism is a journey of self-love

    23/04/2021 Duration: 38min

    In today’s episode, I dive into a raw and honest conversation about boundaries and I share some of my current challenges in this area.⁣ ⁣ I talk about the importance of clearly communicating our boundaries so they are not just 'unspoken expectations' that when broken leave us feeling resentful and unsupported. ⁣ ⁣ And I dive into the reason why many of us struggle with implementing boundaries which stems from our learned patterns of people-pleasing, seeking external love, putting others before ourselves and needing to be liked.⁣ ⁣ This conversation is about practising self-love and self-honouring, valuing yourself and having the courage to prioritise your wants and needs. ⁣ In this episode I cover: - What it means to honour yourself and how to practice this - Why our boundaries are our responsibility - The danger of holding unspoken expectations - How to get clear on the boundaries you want and need to set - The importance of speaking up and having uncomfortable conversations - How patterns of people-pleasi

    Working with regular self-care practices and rituals is a powerful way nurture yourself, connect in with your feelings and needs, and fill yourself up from within.

So, today on the podcast, I am sharing the 6 key rituals and practices that I will be working with in 2021. I dive into each of these practices in detail and share how you can apply them in your own life to support yourself through the year.

    14/08/2020 Duration: 36min

    With all that is unfolding this year, I wanted to jump on the podcast and talk about what to do when you fall into a funk - that space of feeling flat, out of alignment, uninspired, disconnected from what makes you feel good, or just kind of...meh. With many of our usual routines and ways of living being uprooted and changed this year, it is at times taking a lot of inner work to feel happy, aligned and empowered amongst the intensity and uncertainty.  Despite all that is happening, we must remember that we are still in control of how we feel and how we respond.

In this episode I cover: + The tendency many women of us have to judge, reject and neglect our feminine self. + The importance of deeply honouring your emotions, wants, needs, desires and feelings. + How the energy you embody impacts what you attract and manifest in your relationships. + The profound turning point I experienced 6 years ago which

    Ever since the year began, I have personally been navigating some feelings of confusion, stuckness and overwhelm and I have been moving through a big process of finding clarity.

    07/11/2019 Duration: 28min

    What if expanding your life was less about what you needed to bring on, start doing and implement and more about what you simply need to let go of, stop doing and put down?

I have been looking beyond surface levels of self-love and self-care and I have been exploring bigger and deeper practices of self-devotion and self-honouring.

    31/08/2019 Duration: 41min

    Many of us are experiencing significant changes rippling through our lives and unfolding within ourselves at the moment. We are in a time of upgrade, and there is an inner push to begin to step up and show up in new and bigger ways. However, alongside all of these exciting shifts and changes, there is also a lot of resistance arising. By resistance I mean, procrastination, discomfort, wanting to avoid or put things off, emotional eating, distracting yourself on your phone, finding it hard to sit still and be alone, heaviness, fatigue and generally as though part of you is wanting to pull back and run away from all that you are being called into.  Now is our time to work through all of this. So, today on the podcast I will be diving deeper into the themes of life upgrades and moving through resistance and offering you tools and support to navigate this energy. In this episode, I cover:

  • AR #88 - Balancing Your Inner Feminine & Masculine Energy

    10/05/2019 Duration: 46min

    In today’s episode, I am exploring how to balance your inner feminine and masculine energy, and this conversation is deeply reflective of what I have been feeling and working through over the past few months. Like many other women, I have often found myself living too connected to my masculine energy which left me feeling like I was always doing, achieving, forcing, controlling, working hard and being up in my head. In the pursuit of my goals (or simply because I was just trying to keep up with everything that needed to get done), I began to neglect my inner feminine essence. I would ignore my bodies cries for rest, play, love, connection, nourishment, pleasure and flow. But I have been bringing things back into balance these past few months and it has been an incredible journey that has absolutely transformed me. So, I felt inspired to come on the podcast today to share everything that has been supporting me and the changes I have been making. In this episode I cover: + How I have started unravelling
