My guest on The Priestess Podcast today is the beautiful and soulful top ranking podcast host, author and mindfulness expert Rachael Kable. Rachael discovered mindfulness at a time in her life when she was experiencing challenging thoughts and feelings that were taking her out of the present moment and either focusing on her past, or projecting her into the future and a space of being where things were even yet to happen. And if you’ve had thoughts like that then you will relate. I think we all can in so many ways. Rachael guides us today on what mindfulness is, it’s connection to self-compassion and our spirituality and how to gently begin to cultivate it. And slowing down as a part of this? Oh yes please.
Can you relate to any of the following things dear listener…? You want to be seen but you don’t. You want to draw people towards you and your work but you don’t want to be judged or criticised. You want to put yourself out there in a big and bold way but you don’t want to make a mistake. You want more followers on social media but you don’t want to have to share everything about your life. I think that many of us can relate to at least some of these things and I know I certainly have before. On the surface it can seem such a simple and even easy thing as a human being - just make yourself visible. Be seen. Get out there. But it not’s that easy right? Right. Many of us have fears and concerns about what it means to be more visible and more often than not those fears are ones of our own creation. My brilliant guest on The Priestess Podcast today is Life and Business Coach Laura Banks and she’s here to break this down for us in a soulful but also practical way that’s going to help you shine and be seen before you know it!
Host of The Priestess Podcast Julie Parker shares in this solo episode about the very real and even very helpful power of your fears. Those fears that hold us back, keep us small, have us hide and stop ourselves from being and shining in our full light. What are they really about? Could they be something more than a voice or feeling that stops us from doing and being what we truly want to do and be? Could their meaning be deeper than that and in fact a sign that we are on the threshold of something amazing? Imagine that...
Sometimes when we talk about things like developing confidence and sovereignty and being in charge of our own life, the narrative around that can make it sound somewhat easy. Make this decision! Change your mindset! Choose a different path! And while all of those things, and many more, may indeed help, it does not mean that the changes or transitions or releasing they require are actually easy, or feel great all the time. My guest on The Priestess Podcast today, Erika Cramer, is known as the Queen of Confidence and her spin on confidence is that it does NOT always feel great to develop it. Developing confidence and being the Queen of your own life can at times mean making tough decisions, shaking in your boots, needing to push through something and change old habits and stories you’ve comfortably held on to for a long time. The great news is however that on the other side and through such times is a renewed or even newly found sense of self that will place you at the centre of your own life and confidently knowing who you are and what you’re really here to do.
