In this episode, Rachel has so many dreams on the brink of coming true. Her new book is being released, she is going on tour, the podcast is growing and taking a new spin… But how do dreams become manifested? Sharing one of her own stories (one that’s weird, wild and involves Ringo’s balls and something called Sugarlumps), Rachel shares just how to turn ideas into reality, even the seemingly unachievable ones. The first steps are always to release the fear of failure, focus on what you can gain, and just do the first actionable thing! Tune in for an episode that will inspire you to just go for it.
Learn How Set Boundaries - It Will Change Your Life
In this episode, Rachel dives into the important topic of setting boundaries for your time and energy. Whether it’s friendships that don’t align anymore or work engagements that are asking too much, it is ultimately our responsibility to tell the world exactly what we can offer… and when we need to take some space. When you know what those boundaries are, stick to them! The moment you break your own boundary is the moment you tell the world there is no line that can’t be crossed. But when we set clear guidelines, we allow others to learn their own self-reliance, and we usually receive nothing but compassion in return. Life is short! Cherish your precious time and energy. Tune in for an episode that will help you align your values, speak your truth and put your foot down.
Your Healing Journey Starts NOW
In this episode, Rachel contemplates the body and the role it plays in healing along with the patterns, behaviors, and the stories we tell ourselves. So many of us are in a constant state of stress or fight or flight, especially if we have experienced trauma in our lives. The regular activation of our sympathetic nervous system becomes engrained in us. We feel unsafe and the body holds onto it! How can we train our bodies to process what happened and get back to that place of safety? Ultimately, there is no one who can do the work except for you. You can find people to help or give you tools, but we have to take charge. Recognizing that power can be the difference between staying stuck and finding freedom. Tune in for an episode that will help you recognize your own path towards healing.
How to Practice Self Reflection (It Will Change Your Life!)
In this episode, Rachel is reflecting on the true meaning of self-care: self reflection. Remaining conscious and present with how we feel, what triggers us and how we relate to others is the most important key to living a balanced life. Continuing to self reflect and do the inner work isn’t easy! It requires us to check in with our heart, to stay vulnerable, and to look at ourselves with truthful eyes every day. Have you ever taken a break from work and felt so low the entire time that you couldn’t even enjoy it? When was the last time you looked at yourself and took care of your own needs? It is our responsibility during those times to do actual self-care; to unpack what isn’t true, to release what doesn’t serve us, to stop telling ourselves old stories, to have the difficult conversations, to let our walls down. To figure out where to go from here. That is what it means to be truly present. That is how you can change your life. Rachel dives deep into this conversation this week, giving examples from her own life and conversations with her husband that showed her that there is purpose in everything. Tune in for an episode that will remind you that the moments where you fall apart are the ones that lead you where you need to go, all in divine timing.
How to Balance Struggle and Ease
In this episode, Rachel is immersed in her yoga teacher training and is speaking to us from a place of absolute tiredness. Reflecting on her ability to keep going no matter what (really), she ponders something so many of us struggle with: finding the balance between working hard and taking time to rest. Throughout our lives, we fall on different sides of the spectrum between not trying at all and trying too hard. But when we aren’t trying at all - is it due to a fear of failure or are we bravely letting ourselves take some well-deserved space? When we are working non-stop, are we moving toward a place of burning out? How can we find the balance between working, building, manifesting and slowing down, finding peace and keeping our sanity? What if we could find a place of flow and ease in our lives and be able to catch ourselves before we lose it? Ultimately, the universe gives us little clues along the way that hold the secret to a really great life. Tune in for an episode that will help you connect the dots.
