#6 - The Spiral Path of Unfoldment
It's 2019 and after two months of solitude and quietude, I'm back podcasting and will vow to make 1 new podcast per week from now on, as my message is getting clearer and I see a clear need in helping others find their true path in a sometimes confusing world where some are still living in a very dense energy -- a veil of ignorance you might call it. For those who are opening up to their true path, it might serve you to hear some of my thoughts, experiences, and some light comparative research on the subject of the Spiral Path. I've been aware for some time that my path was an unfoldment of my higher self through layers of conditioning, resistance, and emotional material that was slowly revealing ME to me -- and not a straight line! Tune into this episode where I break down a loose framework for walking the Spiral Path of Unfoldment, a process of getting in touch with the Divine Feminine energy inside of you, whether you're a male or female. I have been influenced by the naturally occurring spiral in nature since my previous mentor introduced the Fibonacci sequence to our coaching work and presented it as a growth model. Since then, I've been more in tune to my natural unfoldment, rather than forcing it. Here are 7 distinctions for your reference throughout the episode: 1. Movement - getting into our bodies and feeling spirit moving us is the first step. For me, the desire to find a dance community and high-level creatives allowed me to take bold steps in my life, moving from the East Coast to L.A., and then going south to Central America where I've lived for over a year and a half now. 2. Divinity/Intuition - taking steps toward my true nature moved me closer to my core, my heart. As I began to experience myself as Divine, the intuitive voice opened up to guide my life and give me the feeling of being supported. 3. Natural Rhythm -- whether you follow the planetary cycles in Kabbalah, which is my training, or the Wheel of the Year in the Pagan tradition, there is a universal force guiding our movements when we tap into these energies. 4. Flow -- the internal and emotional freedom to walk your true path unencumbered by having society's approval or not and feeling the harmony of agreeing to let life move through you. 5. Allowance -- your openness to what life is offering you; accepting things as they are. As you liberate yourself from personal preferences and your own resistance to your evolution, life begins to work. 6. Capacity -- as you open up your capacity to allow all of your experiences, expand your awareness and increase your ability to focus on what's important, you become available for your Divine nature to give you more and more guidance. 7. Creativity -- as your openness and availability increases, it's only natural for your self-expression to begin to take shape in some form. Now that you know how to allow it, recognize that the creativity energy, sometimes sexual creative energy, is now flowing through you. The temptation is to release this energy prematurely (pun intended), or what we could call "resolving tension." Allowing it to take shape, embracing the ebb and flow of life, being where you are (even when it seems like you're off track) will soon all make sense to you that you're right where you need to be! Keep walking the spiral path and unfolding!

#5 - What is Your Contribution to the Whole?
All we have to do is show up as who we are and do what we're designed to do. Most people have a self-conscious awareness and an egoic agenda that drives them. This can show up as "well-intentioned" actions and service work, but the question is what drives that action? Are you being the martyr of your life, pledging your life to help others out of deep-seated feelings of guilt, shame, or worth issues? Or are you creating and serving from love and joy? There is a big difference when serving and showing up from love and the way you FEEL will absolutely change. When you create what you love and follow your highest excitement, you will align with the path of joy! Listen in and learn how synchronicity can help you align with your True Nature and the true path for you in this lifetime. I share my journey to authenticity through creative development, flow consciousness, and intuitive exploration...learning to let life unfold naturally and effortlessly. Learn how to tap into your natural ability by remembering your unique essence and true nature. Sometimes this can be assisted by plant allies and other times simply by walking your true path you can't help but create a great life by following your highest excitement! Tune into Episode 5 and get a glimpse into how you can make a bigger contribution to the whole creating what you love and giving yourself your heart!

#4 - Everything We Fear is a Feeling
In this powerful interview, I speak with my dear friend and dynamo Celeste Rajczi about life and death, her own personal conscious evolution, how feeling everything is the key, and how at 22 years of age she has co-created a mission and business to empower young women to take permission of their lives and follow their true heart’s desire. This is the FIRST time I’ve interviewed someone for my podcast and the first time Celeste has been interviewed, but we had quite a bit of practice with our near weekly “Cacao & Conversation” meetings — a little tradition we created while living close to one another in San Marcos, Guatemala. The energy of those chats became electric and we knew we were on to something by “speaking our visions into existence” so we wanted to record our conversation and share it with you all. What I love about Celeste is how poised and articulate she is, expressing a wisdom beyond her years and really pointing to her fierce commitment to BE who she truly is. Here are some of the highlights: 4:00 Create an awareness of the patterns that aren’t serving you 4:25 Trust what you FEEL and really learn to listen to YOUR OWN INNER GUIDANCE 8:00 How TRAVEL helps you see greater POSSIBILITIES for living in the world 8:20 Celeste talks about how giving herself this time to SELF-REFLECT allowed the INNER CONVERSATION to begin. 12:40 How it’s selfish NOT to live your dreams because the people around you will never TRULY know who you REALLY are 18:50 How the COURAGE to be DISLIKED is the courage to be HAPPY 23:00 How her boldness allowed her to “step into UNKNOWN and meet what would greet her there” 29:00 Celeste points out the commonly held BELIEF or COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT that: “There is a way things are.” 29:30 How ENTREPRENEURS are FREEDOM SEEKERS think: what if it could be different? 30:00 “It’s OK not to know,” says Celeste. "Stay in the question. Stay in the curiosity.” 34:45 Redefining what spirituality is: “To be alive is to be spiritual.” 37:00 The importance of COMMUNITY and ACCOUNTABILITY to stay on the path 43:00 How if you’re depleted, you’re not giving to yourself! 48:00 How FEELING her FEELINGS (and starting a video diary) was SO important to process everything she went through during her own CONSCIOUS AWAKENING. 50:25 How the more she learned to love herself, the less scary her emotions became 50:39 how EVERYTHING WE FEAR IS A FEELING. We can learn to dance with our shadow through the darkness 55:55 Celeste talks about how witnessing her feelings and the thoughts that created them has empowered her beyond belief! 57:40 The importance of having LOVING COMPASSION toward ourselves 58:00 How feeling UNCOMFORTABLE is inevitable so you may as well feel uncomfortable on the path to your dreams! 58:21 How facing what’s not serving you will be uncomfortable but ultimately liberating Enjoy this enlightening conversation with entrepreneur, Life Coach, friend and colleague, Celeste Rajczi.

As I reflect back on my 40 years on this planet, the changes I've gone through, the knowledge I've acquired, and how my own unfoldment has revealed a unique path, I endeavor to shed light on the magical life that is available when we live in possibility and embrace uncertainty and even discomfort. Listen in and I'm sure you'll glean something that will serve you on your own path.

#2 - Bless the Day you Meet Your Nemesis
A real life illustration about how meeting my nemesis challenged me to the core, brought out some of my worst qualities, but ultimately inspired me to integrate my "light qualities" as well. We should all be so fortunate as to meet the person who will help us move into wholeness and prepare us to step into our highest potential.

#1 - Tantra & Tension
What happens when we decide to engage with life and embrace tension in our relationships and everyday conversations? I explore some ideas of how the philosophy of tantra, to engage with the energy of life, and tension, which arises when we're outside of our comfort zone can be applied to live more empowered lives. Ultimately, I 've noticed that where's there's resistance and tension, there are human beings that aren't being honest about their own emotions and definitely haven't learned to express them openly and safely. This podcast is about emotional education and seeks to reframe the conversation of "discomfort" when tension arises and make it more acceptable, more natural. After all, if we're truly evolving beings, we're learning to communicate at higher levels and collapse drama before it sours our relationships and creates havoc in our lives. What if we all started unpacking our emotional material, sharing our feelings, and speaking our truths? It'd be such an easier world to live in... And I'd bet you'd find it a whole lot more peaceful :)
