One Woke Mama – Episode 07 – Bravery and Motherhood with Katie Dean

One Woke Mama – Episode 07 – Bravery and Motherhood with Katie Dean

Posted May 19, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 07 – Bravery and Motherhood with Katie Dean In Episode07 I have the pleasure of diving into motherhood, bravery, courage and facing our fears (which come up so often as mums!)with the incredibly authentic, down to earth and inspiring Katie Dean. We dive into what personal fears and struggles motherhood has amplified and intensified for Katie. And specifically what motherhood has asked Katie to heal and shine a light on. Which we can all relate to! We also touch on what FEAR might look like for you, when it shows up and the flip side to that – bravery and courage. Most importantly we explore why, as mamas, we must be brave and step up to the ‘Woke’ challenge that motherhood throws down. +++ About Katie Dean Katie Dean has thrown the rule book out the window and the world loves her for it. She’s an international best-selling Author, motivational maven and the woman you want in your late-night group chats. A rouge at heart, Katie is best described as a mindset mechanic, a researcher on how to debunk fear and is here to shine a light for women seeking confidence, clarity and courage. Her best-selling book Becoming Brave has changed lives all over the world and she’s set to do it again with her second novel, ‘Messy’. Through her booked out coaching, national speaking tours, brand new Podcast, Simply Complicated and loved up writing she is hell bent on lighting people up laughing inappropriately and living her truth, even if it is wildly messy. As a Solo Mumma to two beautiful boys, the absolute loves of her life she’s no stranger to chaos. With a refreshingly no BS approach, she engages with her warmth, humour, worldly insights and tools to take her audience on an epic path of bravery, empowerment and self-discovery. +++ Listen to Episode 07 Connect with Katie Dean WEB FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

One Woke Mama – Episode 06b – Breaking The Chain of The Mother Line

One Woke Mama – Episode 06b – Breaking The Chain of The Mother Line

Posted May 13, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 06b: Breaking the chain of The Mother Line This episodes directly links and relates back to the previous episode, Episode 06b on the Victim/Martyr archetypes that we often embody. However, in today’s episode we dive deeper into the idea that we can, quite simply, begin the process of breaking the chain of ANY learned behaviour, belief and thought system that you most likely have been passed down, along the chain. We are in the chain, the line or ‘red string’ with our mother (also father, family, most influential friends, teachers etc) For me, as a mama, I can see that the mother line and patriarchal influence has bound me into a few habits that I am so willing and ready to release. From the victim/marty archetypes ruling my life to the sacred wounds from pre-birth and even to the learned behaviour (quick to anger, bossiness etc) I received from my parents. I know that, for my children, I can as much as possible prevent some of the unnecessary hurts, roles and attitudes from being absorbed as deeply. It’s the least I can do – show up for them willing to clear the slate and to give them a chance to show up in the world with minimal baggage. Know this though, this is just as much about them as it is about us – healing these wounds is part of our growth and journey as women and mamas. As human beings, simply. Dive in to receive my personal insight and ideas on how to break the chain. +++ Listen to Episode 06b Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

One Woke Mama – Episode 06a – Are you a Victim, Martyr or both?

Posted May 08, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 06a: Are you a victim, martyr or both? One of the most uncomfortable things I’ve had to face as a mother is this truth – I swing between behaving like a victim or a martyr. Embodying these archetypes is actually more normal and common than we realise. Especially during motherhood. We embody these roles during motherhood, not one or the other, but both. And I actually think many of us do this. We might just not see it yet. We often choose to avoid it because, let’ be real here, these are not the most flattering roles to appropriate. I take a look at these two roles and how they might come into being during our motherhood journey. And in the following episode 06b I share how we can break this chain. +++ In this episode I cover: The way the Victim Archetype might show up for you – and personal examples of how it doe for me The way the Martyr Archetype might show up for you – and my examples of this too What triggers these roles from coming up for me Getting honest with yourself and seeing where you learnt these roles from What breaking the chain is about and how we can begin this process How we might start to question these roles  The next episode on Breaking The Chain Listen to Episode 06a Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

My new podcast is here! Introducing One Woke Mama

My new podcast is here! Introducing One Woke Mama

Posted April 21, 2019

Introducing my new podcast – One Woke Mama; the journey of awakening through motherhood. So I’m what you’d call a ‘grower’. Even during times when I’d much rather be the kind of person to blindly move through life (smashing it all up with no reflection and a heap of fun) I simply can’t avoid my soul programming – the inner desire, need and calling to learn and grow from my life experiences. I think it’s part of why I’m ‘here’ (earth side) again. There’s something I’m looking for (aren’t we all?) Something I’m trying to grasp at (I’m had a greater, stronger sense of what that is and not surprisingly it relates to two major things;LOVE and PURPOSE) which can only be reached – for me at least – through growth work. Sometimes that growth work is light, effortless and soaked through with an easy sensibility. A more feathery light touch to self development. Other times it’s BIG and requires all of me.It’s deep and mind-glowingly beautiful (and uncomfortable!) So it’s no surprise to me that here I am relaunching my podcast (finally – whoop whoop!) And relaunching it on Easter Monday – a time that represents REBIRTH.  This podcast centres on the growth journey towards consciousness that motherhood has activated. Becoming more ‘WOKE’. On the journey towards awareness, insight, wisdom as One Woke Mama. +++++ ONE WOKE MAMA will take you with me – as I deep dive through motherhood and the consciousness it demands of me.  ‘One Woke Mama’ is journey of awakening through the raw, sometimes painful, always beautiful and definitely messy ride that is motherhood. This is OUR journey, beautiful mamas (and YES this podcast can be easily, happily and fruitfully listened to by all!) in mind, body and soul towards consciousness. Seeking clarity. Hunting down the truth. Diving into the discomfort of healing. Uncovering shadowsand rising out of them back. Risinginto a NEW woman. Through my personal brand of storytelling, musings, wisdom bombs and insights we journey into motherhood,the catalyst, if you so choose, to become more conscious, aware… woke. I’m just one mama following the path to WOKE. And I hope you choose to wake up with me too. Interviews, meditations, musings, stories, riffing and more. Similar flavour and vibe to The Wellness Project Podcast, but with a different focus and energy. I’ve been through a WILD (motherhood) ride and I feel called to share it and support other mamas too. +++ So what is left for you to do? LISTEN IN. This is for you, from me, and for me too. For all of us. I’m so ridiculously excited to be sharing this with you – getting this together amongst the daily grind of motherhood is no small feat (also, I prioritise self care and slowing down when the juggle is draining or times are challenging) Click on THIS image below to be taken to the podcast HQ.

One Woke Mama Episode 03 – Healing, growing & awakening through motherhood with Maryanne Sea

One Woke Mama Episode 03 – Healing, growing & awakening through motherhood with Maryanne Sea

Posted April 20, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 03: Healing, growing & awakening through motherhood with Maryanne Sea First up, I wasn’t intending for this episode to be so long – I’m sorry, truly, I know that time is precious as a mama. But you see, the thing is, when one speaks with Maryanne Sea – Intuitive Healer (which, by the way, does NOT properly explain her incredible skill set!) – one is not able to keep the conversation tight. There is just so much to explore and understand about healing when it comes to babies in utero, babies pre-birth and the mothers who create these beautiful babies. Maryanne and I jump on the mic together, again, after such a HUGE and positive response to our first episode – www.claireobeid.com/episode27. In our first interview we explore the powerful and mind-blowing experience of healing babies before they are born – helping them to come down earth side with an open channel to love, grounded, at peace, and ready to be here. This time around I had to get Maryanne back on to chat about all things healing but on a new and exciting level – Together, Maryanne and I explore the power of healing with intention, love and presence in the work that Maryanne does with babies in utero, children post birth and mother healings. Maryanne has created change and positive healing with Rafael pre AND post birth as well as my little Soleil at the age of four.  This episode will blow your mind with incredible stories of rapid healing, dramatic shifts and HUGE awakenings for both mother and baby. We even explore how Maryanne has helped women call in their angel baby and fall pregnant simply by removing the blocks to love. An episode absolutely NOT to be missed and one close to my heart as I am currently knee deep into my own healing journey with Maryanne as my guide. I speak from experience that the work Maryanne does for mother’s and babies is next level. The journey I am currently on is so life-changing it’s hard to put it into words. So I beg you, listen in, listen again, listen when you can. It’s worth it. Show notes: Visit Maryanne’s website Maryanne’s current offering The Powerful Intentions Circle +++ In this episode I cover: What an intuitive reading is – what is the focus, how it’s done and what are its benefits A mother’s desire to shed the past and create change and why that desire is so important Breaking the chain and the generational wounds in the mother line. Readings with babies before birth and how they communicate their needs, desires, blocks and wounds Why helping babies to heal pre and post birth can create a huge shift and redirect the course of their life Stories of women trying to conceive and of their pre- conception connection with their children Mother and Child readings and the healing that unfolds How this work is an important part of a Woman/Mother’s growth journey. Motherhood has the catalyst for deep healing and awakening The Wounds of Rejection – the leaving and merging pattern Powerful intentions for pregnancy and childbirth – an invitation to join a global healing movement A discounted offer to work with Maryanne.

One Woke Mama Episode 02 – Authenticity in Motherhood

One Woke Mama Episode 02 – Authenticity in Motherhood

Posted April 19, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 02: Authenticity in Motherhood Authenticity – an attitude that I feel we need to embody MORE asa mamas. Something that unfortunately doesn’t happen enough – women are discouraged from sharing their joys AND showing vulnerability and struggle. The cost of this is huge on our tribe and community. When we are enter Motherhood, we are entering a private and individual experience, but also a universal collective. There are things you just can’t know or ever understand until you have grown, birthed and nurtured a child. You can’t ever begin to fathom the deep transition, the cavern of in-between that motherhood throws you into. Not to mention the sheer exhaustion from sleepless nights, the love that renders you a gooey mess and the way everything about YOU comes into question (Who am I? Whom does this body belong too? Where did my romance and freedom go?) In this episode I explore what Authentic Motherhood looks like and why it’s invaluable. +++ In this episode I cover: How comparison and competition affects our ability to be authentic How we are not encouraged to be positive or to share our struggles Why authenticity creates community and tribe mentality What reframing failure in motherhood means and why we need to do it A simple call to action Listen to Episode 02 Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

One Woke Mama Episode 01 – How Our Children Trigger Our Inner Shadows

One Woke Mama Episode 01 – How Our Children Trigger Our Inner Shadows

Posted April 18, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 01: Our Children Trigger Our Inner Shadows Our children, who I see as tiny but mighty Gurus, often trigger us – especially our inner shadows and wounds. Sometimes just getting through daily life with tiny dictators can be the most challenging thing you’ve ever done. I know that sounds extreme, but everything (especially when they are really little) can be tedious and fraught with resistance and stubbornness. What I find to be the most challenging though is the reflection our children mirror back to us – how they shine a light on our ugliness, or the inner child within that is wounded and broken in some way. How we ‘handle’ the very normal yet irritating challenges that motherhood sometimes throws at us – well this is where we see how deep own shadows are. They come up to the surface, begging to be healed. In today’s episode I share the triggers my children have brought up in me. How our children demand us to heal ourselves and why I feel they do this – how it’s a two-way street. This is an invitation to be OK with those triggers and learn from them. Tune in and share your thoughts on how your children have triggered your own shadows and wounds. +++ In this episode I cover: How I first began my spiritual awakening, before motherhood Why I believe motherhood has been my biggest spiritual unravelling to date How motherhood triggers our inner wounds and shadows The triggers I experience from my own children Why it’s about growth and healing What our children demand of us and why Listen to Episode 01 Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

Welcome to One Woke Mama Podcast – Episode Ground Zero

Welcome to One Woke Mama Podcast – Episode Ground Zero

Posted April 17, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Welcome to my NEW podcast. I’m so excited this day has finally come. I’ve been quietly and somewhat slowly plodding away at recording, and doing ALL the things required to relaunch a podcast. As I write this I find it funny that I actually made my life a little harder – I mean, I could’ve just kept going with The Wellness Project Podcast… recorded a few new episodes and just continued on. But no, I had to take heed of the inspiration that landed in my heart one cold wintry morning. And that inspiration came in the form of three little words; One Woke Mama. And that moment happened amongst the beautiful, delicious yet sometimes frustrating phase of life with a newborn. Mamahood V2.0. Two children deep and some days I was floundering, others swimming through it all like a fish. Either way I was undergoing a transformation and a HUGE process of awakening – which truly has been happening for many years now, but motherhood is like slamming pedal to the metal. Accelerated growth. Calling WOKE in on speed dial. So, as you might remember, this podcast used to be called The Wellness Project – a business name and brand that has carried me through the years since 2011. And one I still resonate with you. But, throw motherhood into the mix and everything comes into question (I’ll definitely be talking about this more on episodes to come).  If you were following and listening along to The Wellness Project Podcast, which I launched when I was pregnant with my now 10month old little man – Rafael – or from the earliest days of when I shared my meals and spoke all things health and wellbeing, from my blogging days, Life Coaching biz, meditation offerings, programs etc – BTW I thank you for being the first to tune in to my brand of wellness which was an exploration into freeing your mind, fuelling your body and feeding your soul. And whilst I am still madly passionate about all those things, you might have already guessed that there is something else I want to focus on. Motherhood. But not just the everyday story of motherhood. (Although the everyday is where it’s all at!) Nope… I want to focus on the incredible gift that motherood offers us – the opportunity to grow, to get dirty, to get lost in the shadows and find our own truth, to heal. Motherhood is a catalyst for major spiritual upheaval and growth. A chance to become more conscious and to ‘wake’ up. To be more woke. Yep, this is what I’m here to focus on. One Woke Mama. This is the next iteration of my personal journey – a spiritual, emotional, mental, physical and energetic exploration through the powerful, potent and often down-right ridiculous experience of consciousness. Of awakening. Of becoming WOKE. ++++ So as you get ready to dive into One Woke Mama, I ask you to start here at Episode Ground 0 Ground is the place I find myself after almost a year of maternity leave after the birth of my divine angel boy, Rafael. My second and last baby. I want to get you up to speed. It’s important that we start here together. And this ground zero gives me the chance to go down to the bare bones. To the dust that has settled after a wild few years and to start again – literally starting again with this podcast. Beginning this journey again, differently, With you. If you are ready and willing to jump on board. Are you ready for the new wave, albeit from the same ocean, that is washing through. Because this is how it feels to me. TO begin again. So I’ll leave you to click PLAY and tune in. This is an important foundational episode to make sure you and I are up to speed. P.s If you are new here (Hi! Welcome!) Please make sure you take your time to listen back through the 28 episodes in my original podcast – The Wellness Project – there are some mind-blowing, heart expanding, seriously unreal interviews in there with some seriously incredible women. I will never delete those interviews because they are pure GOLD. So head back to the main podcast page, scroll down and plug in!
