When It's Hard To Forgive
One of the things I love is doing my oracle card Monday Messages readings on my Grief With Grace Podcast page on Facebook. Last week I noticed a theme had been coming up in many of the cards over the past month or so that inspired this week’s episode.Forgiveness can be so hard when we’ve experienced trauma or great loss. And yet, it’s often the key that unlocks the door to deeper healing on a Soul level. In this episode I share:What forgiveness really isThe emotions holding us back from forgivenessWhere we carry these emotions in our physical bodiesHow understanding our roles in past lives can help us in forgiveness in this lifeHow forgiving ourselves as well as others is critical - and what can happen when we can’t forgiveHow raising your consciousness can assist you in being able to forgiveHow life on Earth is like a big play - and how we each chose our roles before we incarnatedHow I’ve surrendered and forgiven the role that others played in my own son’s passingWhat we can learn about forgiveness from the spiritual text “A Course In Miracles”My tips on what to do when you feel you’re unable to forgiveI have 6 spots open for free exploration calls with me in August 2021. If you’d like to secure one, email me at email@example.com to see if any are available. These calls are powerful and many women have experienced amazing shifts on these complimentary calls. If it’s after August 2021, email me to see if I have any space available.

Aligning Masculine & Feminine Energies For Healing
While every human being has both masculine and feminine energies inside of them, we're usually out of alignment between them. Most women lead with our masculine energy, and our feminine energy is often forgotten, or it's a sad afterthought. When we bring these two beautiful energies into alignment, they can help us on our healing journey. In this episode, I talk about:The role of feminine energy is the Renaissance EraThe rise of masculine energy in the Industrial Revolution, and how it continues to impact us todayTraits of masculine energy that’s in alignment and out of alignmentTraits of feminine energy that’s in alignment and out of alignmentThe problem with the concept of “balance”The role that World War II and the women’s lib movement had on our feminine energiesWays you can come back into harmony with your masculine and feminine energiesWhy I love Breathwork for aligning with feminine energySome ways I know when I’m out of alignmentIf you’d like to see if a Breathwork session would be right for you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It's been one of the most powerful ways I realign with my feminine energy, and women who experience it say the same thing happens for them. Give it a try and see how it can help you on your healing journey.

Do You Love Yourself Enough To Heal?
I’ve noticed a pattern in the grief and trauma community where women are pushing back against their healing. They aren’t doing it intentionally, and they don’t even realize they’re doing it. It's very subtle, and not obvious to most people In this episode I go into so much around this, including:How worthiness and deserving affect our healingPunishing ourselvesHow our self-talk affects our healingQuestions to ask yourself about your self-talkThe emotions underneath our self-talkWays we can express self-loveWhat goes with self-loveThe “picture” exercise I give my clients - and use myself!What do you do to love on yourself?

Are You Still Wearing A Mask?
Masks are all the rage these days - just one short year ago we never would have imagined what a hot topic they would become. However, most people wear another kind of mask, one that’s invisible. And that’s what this episode is about.We wear a mask in front of others, and almost everyone wears one on social media. Men, women, children, adults, teens, we all wear invisible masks at times. In this episode, I uncover:What wearing an invisible mask does to our emotionsHow people wear masks on social media contributes - and what it does to usThe mask we wear when someone asks us how we areWhy we wear these masksWhat we’re hiding under our masksQuestions to ask before you post or respondHow to take off your maskIf you're ready to take off your mask and would like some help navigating that experience, reach out to me on IG or email me at email@example.com to schedule a free discovery call.

57. Why Mindset Work Isn't Enough For Healing
In part 3 of the four-part series on supporting the 4 Pillars of Wellness (and Healing) as a gateway to connecting to your child or other loved one in Spirit, and to your Higher Self and your intuition, we dive into the emotional realm. Many people mistakenly believe that our mental and emotional health are one in the same - but they aren’t! Each one is very separate and distinct. In this episode, I break that down and talk about:The real reason many people stay stuck in their grief and traumaWhy mindset work alone isn’t enoughWhat the movie, The Secret, missedHow our conscious mind can sabotage our healingWhere the deeper healing occursWhat happens when we don’t express our emotionsHow I take my clients on a Journey to Wholeness to help them healWhy, although I am a healer, I do not heal anyoneWhat wholeness is, and what it isn’tIf you’d like to book a free discovery call with me to see if I can help you shift out of being stuck on your healing journey, email me at email@example.com.And be sure to listen to Episode 5 where I did a complete overview of the 4 Pillars of Wellness (and Healing).

56. Mastering Your Mind While Grieving
This is part 2 of my 4 part series on supporting the 4 Pillars of Wellness I talk about in my free guide, 4 Steps to Connect With Your Child (or other loved ones) In Spirit (get your copy here). Last week in Episode 55, I talked about the importance of our physical wellness. This week, we’re talking about mastering our mind and supporting our mental wellness.Depression, anxiety and other mental health issues are real, and they’re very common among grieving Moms and others on a grief and healing journey. Supporting our physical health will help us support our mental health for many reasons. In this episode, I talk about:Our “feel good” hormones and how they’re connected to our physical and mental wellnessThe neural pathways in our brains and how they’re createdThe connection between our thoughts, habits and beliefsTips on how we can support our mental health on our healing journeyWhat I called “the in between” after my son left this lifeWhich astrological signs are more likely to overprocess, ruminate and research - and generally be all up in their heads about everything (this is just for fun!)Be sure to listen to next week’s episode for part 3 of my 4 part series - it’s probably my favorite pillar and the one that’s helped my clients and me the most on our healing journeys.

54. The Power Of the Pause
Tender days… milestones in your life or the life of your child or other loved ones in Spirit can be an opportunity for reflection. In this episode, I reflect back on how my life has changed since my son, Greg’s, high school graduation day (13 years ago on the date of this recording). I also share some upcoming changes I’m making in my life in about three months, and how God/Spirit/the Universe validated the choice I’m making a few days ago. It’s fascinating to watch these things happen when we’re awake and tuned into the magic of life!In this episode, I share:The “pause” that assisted me in shifting my life when I left my marriage in 2008How the world narrative shapes usHow women are conditioned to ignore their inner knowing (men are as well!)What all of the “doing” has done to our society and how it has disconnected us from ourselves and from our SoulsWhat we can do to reconnect to our SoulWhat happened - and what I found - when I became comfortable in the stillnessWhat will you do to pause this week?Be sure to stop by my Instagram page or my Grief With Grace Podcast page on Facebook and share with me how you’re going to choose to pause this week!

53. A Difficult Conversation We Can't Ignore
This episode is heavy, but it’s a topic that needs to be brought out into the Light.An alarming number of bereaved Moms have recently made the choice to leave this life by their own hand. I’m a bereaved Mom, so I understand the feelings of pain, hopelessness, despair, and so much more.In this episode, I share my own moment of just not wanting to be here anymore, and how I picked myself up off the floor and chose to honor my life, my children, my grandchildren, and my Soul.These are the conversations that make us uncomfortable. The conversations we avoid. The conversations that are kept hush-hush. But they’re the conversations that just might help someone know that they still matter (whether they’re a bereaved parent or anyone else).Suicide Prevention Lifeline in the United States: (800)273-8255Helping Parents Heal has a wonderful group of Caring Listeners that can be found on their website.
