Episode #28: It’s time to rewrite our birth story

Episode #28: It’s time to rewrite our birth story

Posted April 17, 2018

Episode #28: It’s time to rewrite our birth story At 41 weeks pregnant birth is definitely imminent and on my mind. To say I am excited to experience birth again is an understatement. But I know many women don’t feel that way. Why? I believe it comes back to our beliefs and feelings around birth – our personal birth story – and the collective story we are fed from a very young age. It’s hard to feel positive about something when you’ve only ever heard, read, witnessed birth via FEAR. Negative portrayals, birth wrapped in intervention and an image of it as horrendous, painful and brutal experience. Today’s episode is all about inspiring YOU (as a woman, a mama, a future birther) to rewrite the story around birth. Not just for yourself but for your children, and the next generation. Otherwise we are going to continue to push birth into the shadows and allow it to shrink away when it should be the most powerful, praised and deeply celebrated experience a woman gets the privilege to undergo! In this episode I cover: My personal birth story My mother’s stories on birth A 16 year old’s thoughts on natural child birth Why we need to rewrite our individual and collective birth story How to find new language and stories on birth Listen to this episode: Previous episodes that relate to birth: How to have a Beautiful, Spirited Birth with Lauren Falconer Babies before birth with Maryanne Sea Resources: My Birth Blog posts Soleil’s birth – Part 1 and Part 2 Birth Story Documentary Birth Time Documentary Dr Sarah Buckley Ina May Gaskin Subscribe on iTunes Click here to subscribe on iTunes and never miss an episode! +++ Feel free to comment and share below – does this reader question resonate with you?

Episode 27: Babies before birth – a discovery of healing and magnifying the love with Maryanne Sea

Episode 27: Babies before birth – a discovery of healing and magnifying the love with Maryanne Sea

Posted April 03, 2018

Episode 27: Babies before birth – a discovery of healing and magnifying the love with Maryanne Sea Many of us on this spiritual pathway are passionate about our own healing – or supporting others in there healing. But have you ever considered that perhaps a baby, growing in utero, also may need healing? This is precisely what the incredible guest on today’s episode – Maryanne Sea – does. An incredible intuitive, she works closely with mamas and their unborn babies to facilitate any healing (if needed at all). I have been blessed to work with Maryanne in these last few weeks before bub arrived. A gift like no other to connect with our baby, to create a flow of love, deep healing and open the pathway between the other realm and earth side. We’ve also been able to chat about names for bub, get a strong feel for his personality and fall in love with each other, even more. This conversation with Maryanne is a mix – learn about Maryanne’s mind-blowing wellness journey and recovery, how she discovered her incredible skill for going INTO a person’s body (inner psyche, sub consciousness mind, programming, beliefs and more) as well as the importance and power of magnifying love (the purpose of this life, no?!) You will also learn about how Maryanne connects with and tunes into babies and offer deep healing before bub arrives earth side. Not to mention that Maryanne is an incredible storyteller. You will just get lost listening to her! She’s equal parts humble, deeply generous and loving and yet so intelligent, honest and a true guide and leader. You will love this interview and Maryanne. Oh and PS you will hear the sex of my little bubba during our chat too! Listen to the end! Maryanne’s Bio: Maryanne Sea has wanted to help people since she was a little girl. However, she has had to actually spent most of her life helping herself. Labelled “permanently and totally disabled” by the US government at age 27, she was one of the first people to be challenged by Environmental Illness. In order to recover from her extreme sensitivity to much of what is part of modern life, she had to live in a “bubble” – a room free of all chemical exposures. Her recovery spanned three decades and during this time she immersed herself in a holistic understanding of her condition and developed her intuition to help herself heal. When she re-entered the world, she began teaching courses in holistic healing, including a popular Intuition in Healing course to nurses, doctors  as well as to the general public. She is the past Coordinator of the MindBody Healing course in the Master’s in Wellness program at RMIT University.  At one point during her healing journey, she prayed that her sensitivity could be turned into something that would help people, and that prayer was answered when she discovered that she could use her sensitivity to help others heal and grow. She has offered Intuitive Readings to people in many different countries for the last thirty years. Presently, she is working on a book about her Intuitive Readings with babies before birth. She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan, USA. In this episode we cover: Maryanne’s personal journey of healing from Environmental Illness How Maryanne became a powerful intuitive and healer The way Maryanne uses her unique gift How information doesn’t heal, but intimacy does. When we heal ourselves we can be present to heal others. The ultimate goal when doing a reading/healing. The somatic (body-oriented) focus in Maryanne’s work. The difference between expansion and contraction in the body’s tissue. When a wound or trauma is not released the body will lock it in its own tissue. Maryanne’s own pre-birth experience. What Maryanne experiences when doing a reading. How Maryanne first began doing readings with babies, in utero. Why it’s important to magnify the love and create healing with babies in utero The role that the mother’s story, personal blocks/challenges/ or current circumstances can be affecting the baby? Real life stories of readings with babies in utero and the healing that unfolding Maryanne’s summary of the reading she did with my baby and what healing was needed. The purpose and experience of connecting with and healing babies in utero. How important it is to magnify the love between baby, mama and papa before birth. Maryanne’s personal mission A discounted offer to mamas to work with Maryanne closely. Listen to this episode: Connect with Maryanne Web As mentioned in our interview Maryanne has created a HEAVILY discounted package if you’d like to work with her. Please get in touch with her via email to discuss. seamaryanne@gmail.com If you are pregnant or even if your bub is born I cannot recommend working with Maryanne enough. It’s been SUCH a pleasure, a gift and true awakening. You can download this PDF on Maryanne’s offering – two readings that I think are stupidly affordable! +++ Feel free to comment and share below.

Episode 26: Doing Death Differently with Yasemin Trollope

Episode 26: Doing Death Differently with Yasemin Trollope

Posted March 27, 2018

Episode 26: Doing Death Differently with Yasemin Trollope How do you feel about Death? As the final frontier on our spiritual journey does it bring all the ‘stuff’ up for you? How do you feel about funerals and the way we send off our loved ones? In this episode I dive deep into death with the incredible Yasemin Trollope – a woman who is here to do death differently through her new business, Rite of Passage Funerals. It’s not an easy topic – many of us struggle to even think about death let alone think about doing death better or differently. But it’s an important conversation to have because it’s the ONE undeniable truth. We will all die.  Yasmin and I dive deep into what it means to lean into death and to honour the experience in a more enlightened, intentional and conscious way. You will be surprised to hear that death doesn’t have to be such a horrendous journey, but a way to love life even more. Yasemin’s Bio Yasemin Trollope is the Founder of Rite of Passage Funerals, an enlightened funeral experience coming to the Gold Coast (and beyond) in April 2018. Her mission in life is to bring death out of the shadows and into the light, to empower families to reclaim control of the dying process and organise funerals filled with ceremony, ritual, meaning and intention. She will be hosting workshops, sacred space healing groups and grief retreats to help support and guide families through end-of-life and into death, while also talking about how leaning into the inevitability of death can make you live a more fulfilled, purpose-filled life. In this episode we cover: Yasemin’s story – how she found herself face to face with the industry of death. Yasemin’s fears around death. How having time and space to explore our purpose can lead to the most unusual revelations. Perception of death amongst the masses. Changing the way we view death. Taking death into the light. Dealing with the intensity of death. Confronting the inevitability of death. The gift that death brings. The surrender and life that comes by looking at death. Death as your teacher. How long it should take to grieve the death of a loved one. How Yasemin now feels about death Learning to come to terms with the reality of death. Questioning your emotions and looking underneath them. How to let go of the emotional attachments we have around death How to lean into the inevitability of death. Why leaning into death is important for our society. Empowering families to do what feels right in the death process rather than the ‘norm’ Laying in state – the Buddhist philosophy that supports the souls journey. Ceremony, ritual and intentional death services. What a living wake is and how healing it is. Bedside vigils in the lead up to death. Embracing the unpredictability of the grieving process. Putting your own DNA on your own funeral. Bringing the community in and creating togetherness during the grieving process. The power of group energy and coming into circle during funerals. How death helps us feel more grateful for life. How Yasemin frees her mind, fuels her body and feeds her soul.

Episode #25: Knowing what’s right for you and following your truth

Episode #25: Knowing what’s right for you and following your truth

Posted March 20, 2018

Episode #25: Knowing what’s right for you and following your truth I’ve got a really juicy Q&A for you today. I received this via email and just KNEW I had to respond – I’ve been through this EXACT same challenge regarding a past relationship, following my truth despite the discomfort and doing what was right for me and my life. This is the question I received: “I’m just writing to see if you’ve got any thoughts on that area of life to “figure out” If what we are in is right. I feel so much inner conflict. And what gets thrown around in my head is whether its me and my own insecurities and maybe what I envisioned my life partner to be or whether that niggly feeling I get (I admit it is often when i’m pre menstrual) is true. I can’t figure out what ‘my truth’ is! Whether it’s worth listening to things even in pre menstrual times or whether I’m talking myself out of something etc. Because at other times there is a lot of love there obviously otherwise I wouldn’t be here. I think what is underlying is I didn’t have a lot of time being single between my last boyfriend and this one and sometimes I dream about having that alone time to really figure some stuff out. But as I am aware I could be fantasising about something that would feel horrible! As you can see I’m a little all over the shop. Any suggestions on what to read or do to find a little more clarity!? When you were going through your saturn return or before you met your current partner what helped you?” In this episode I cover: My personal journey – ignoring my truth and what was right for me How ignoring my truth affecting my health and happiness What happened when I finally followed what was right for me What happens when we resist our truth How terrifying it is to look at what our truth is asking of us The importance of listening inward to our heart How our thoughts are often a direct line to our truth How your body will show signals – learning to listen in and know what’s right for you through sensation Why sickness and dis-ease shows up in the body when we don’t listen The difference between fear-based, ego thinking versus clear intuition ‘thought’. What to do with persistent and insistent thoughts and fantasies What pre-menstrual times can teach us – how our intuitive downloads can be clearer Why it’s OK if a relationship ends and why the end can be seen as a gift Staying open to the feelings and staying out of the head to know your truth Why meditation and stillness tunes you in to what is right for you. Why you don’t need to figure it out. Your head can’t tap into your truth. When your soul requires you to do things that don’t fit your plan Why you need to embrace your souls alignment What happened in my story that showed me the contrast between following and hearing the heart versus not Listen to this episode: Subscribe on iTunes Click here to subscribe on iTunes and never miss an episode! +++ Feel free to comment and share below – does this reader question resonate with you?
