Intuitive Eating and Food Energy
Hey soul fam :) In this episode I discuss what intuitive eating is, and how to implement it in your own life. I also talk about food energy and how understanding food energy is a form of intuitively eating because both of which are contingent upon whether or not you are actually listening to what your body needs to optimally function in terms of fuel to get through the day - eating when you're actually hungry and eating until you're full and using the energy from food to determine how certain food items make you feel. I also speak about how in the understanding of these concepts, that the object of food can be replaced with drinks you choose to drink, people you choose to follow on social media, who you choose to engage with etc. This is because everything is literally energy and it is in the recognition of how things make you feel that you become more self aware, and in that space of self awareness you gain more control over your life.

All Things Plant Medicine
So thankful to have recorded this episode on all things plant medicine with my best friend, Antoniette. She is such a down to do anything type of girl with the best vibes. She and I had began working with plant medicine and their energies 14 months ago. In fact, our first plant medicine experience was 14 months prior to the exact day we recorded this episode which was February 11, 2021 and March 11, 2022 respectively - if you're reading this and you're into synchronicities and angel numbers, the fact that we had no idea until we started checking dates to see when our first plant medicine ceremony was, and it happened to fall on the 11th, the same day we recorded... How much more divine can this get? Anyway, I just want to thank everyone who tunes into this episode as I know it is long, but we speak in detail on each plant medicine we have tried together, what the experiences were like, and how we felt after the experiences. It is so difficult to explain how amazing we feel, but we both try our best to let everyone know how amazing plant medicine is!if you have any questions please feel free to dm either of us on instagram :)@danielle_abbey @antonietteee

The Power in Vulnerability
This episode that is one I thought a lot of people could relate to because vulnerability is such an integral part of building the relationship we each have with ourselves as well as those around us. I learned all of what I talk about in this episode throughout three years of therapy, and that progress simply would not happen if I wasn't willing to go deeper within my soul to confront the parts of me that I refused to face for so long. But that's the best part of the ART therapy, sessions are facilitated to help you face the scary parts of yourself, and your trauma without making you extensively speak about it out loud. So it has been through healing that I was able to make this connection - that all along in every session, I was becoming more and more vulnerable with myself leading me here today and I couldn't be more grateful!

The Obstacles Many People Face When Trying to Manifest What They Desire in Life
In order to make this episode possible I sat down and deeply reflected on the hardest, most traumatic days of my life that I vividly remember and I thought about what knowledge and healing tips would have helped me on those days that I didn't have but that I know today. I then took some of the most important concepts I have learned through therapy, healing, and from some of the greatest spiritual geniuses I have come across to date and created the most soul fueled episode on The Journey Back to Self. I effectively combine where I come from and how that shaped everything that pertained to the way I viewed life and this world for the longest time, and what I have learned through all of the healing I have done to help you all understand why your reality is the way it is right now and the role you play in essentially stalling your own growth. I then take what I have learned and use that knowledge to provide tips for you to improve your reality through making changes in the way you are trying to manifest starting with understanding the power of your thoughts and your words.

21 Lessons I Learned in 2021
In order to make this episode on The Journey Back to Self come to life, I did some very deep reflection work to understand what I actually learned throughout 2021 - the year that unfortunately turned out to be one of the hardest years of my life. I touch on many different topics and relate all the lessons to my own journey back to self discovery and offer suggestions regarding how you can also implement what I found to be the key take-aways from the lessons I learned in your own life if you feel as though you would benefit from doing so! I hope you all enjoy :)

F(alse) E(vidence) A(ppearing) R(eal)
In this episode on The Journey Back To Self, I talk extensively about all things related to fear and I effectively explain how my brain has recognized cues in situations in real time years after I experienced traumatic events that scared me and in turn have scared me as I was presented with the stimuli as an adult. If you feel fear frequently, this episode will likely help you in dealing with those fears because it will better help you understand where your fears originate and how they have manifested into your day to day life as an adult.

Recognizing the Inner Child and Ego in Others
This episode focuses on reiterating this inner child/pain body dynamic and the way in which the ego reinforces and protects both, perpetuates old conditioned thought patterns and, therefore; controls the way you react to the stimuli around you. This cycle will likely keep you feeling like growth is impossible, but it is also very difficult to understand and change. I also discuss the ways in which the inner child/pain body and ego may manifest in unhealed people you know or may come into contact with at one point or another, and what this actually looks like so you are able to recognize it. This is so important because as you all navigate life in this ever globalizing world with society's unrealistic expectations of how you should all be living your lives including how you should look shoved in your faces around every corner, it is imperative that you all learn to be completely unbothered by the perceptions of what others think of you, what they believe to be true about you as well as what they say about you - because it has NOTHING to do with you and everything to do with them and their inner child/pain body and their ego. Understanding this powerful dynamic and how it effectively controls your entire life is something I struggled with truly conceptualizing for a very long time as I was navigating my way through trauma and old paradigms on my own journey back to self and I hope for those of you who listen and have also struggled, things start to click.

Inner Child and Ego: How to Recognize and Heal Both
In this episode I discuss what the inner child/pain body is as well as what the ego is; both of which are apart of every human being on earth. I effectively explain how both your inner child and ego can shape the beliefs you have about your own identity and the way in which you ultimately view everything about the world around you and how this fits into the development of your subconscious mind. I try to make these concepts easier for you all to understand by explaining how my own inner child/pain body and my ego interacted with the outside world to shape how I viewed myself and the world around me, including how I viewed my own family for a very long time. I also provide information on how I began to identify both my own inner child/pain body and my ego and the exact steps I took to start healing both.

What is a Paradigm and Why Changing Yours is Absolutely Necessary to Foster Lasting Change in Your Life
In this episode I dive right into what paradigms are and discuss in great detail why you need to change your conditioned patterns of thought that fuel your subconscious mind in order to make lasting changes in your own life. I use my own life experiences to help you better understand how your paradigms and your subconscious mind essentially control your life and how you can effectively step into your power and master making the changes you want to see yourself by operating from a more conscious state of mind.

In this podcast episode I explain when and why I began my own healing journey and discuss some of what topics I will be touching on in episodes to come, and for the record I am always open to suggestions :) I also discuss specifically how losing my mom led me to begin a podcast and why I chose "Acceptance" to be the basis of the first episode recorded. I begin with offering questions that will allow you to critically evaluate the person you are today keeping in mind the person you would like to become, that is your higher self, so you feel at ease beginning your own journey back to self or feel confident in trusting whatever higher power you believe in to guide you to become exactly what you envision your next level self to be! I dive deep into this idea of acceptance and living a life of grace and gratitude despite what is going on around you and how to manage what I call "negative stimuli" and the feelings that arise as a result. Please join me as we embark on the road to self discovery.
