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 #17: Blending Business and Baby with Lorraine Murphy

Episode #17: Blending Business and Baby with Lorraine Murphy

Posted January 30, 2018

Episode #17: Blending Business and Baby with Lorraine Murphy Many moons ago back in my ‘old’ life when I used to work in PR, Lorraine Murphy joined our team as our new Account Director. I worked very closely with her and was struck by her ability to get shit done. Fast forward a few years – I was now a Life + Wellness Coach and Lorraine had just started The Remarkables Group. Lorraine came to me for some support and guidance and she undertook a 6 month coaching program. It was during this time that I was blessed to witness Lorraine’s insane drive, focus, creativity, willingness and motivation. She was carving our a whole new territory in the influence strategy industry. And her new business was keeping her on her toes – we worked through strategies to help her find peace, balance, presence and calm amongst the chaos of new business land. Now, Lorraine, who recently became a mama to little Lexi is considered one of the most dynamic and remarkable entrepreneurs. And I was so fascinated to learn how Lorraine was blending her first baby (her business!) with her new little lady, Lexi. Our conversation is honest, full of insights and tips and simply refreshing. Much like Lorraine! There are plenty of swear words and sworn truths about life as a mama and a business owner but SO many juicy take-aways for you to implement or even just chew on if you too are trying to blend (not juggle!) your business and baby. Official BIO Lorraine Murphy is the Founder of The Remarkables Group – the first dedicated influencer strategy agency in Australia, which launched in May 2012. Starting in her spare bedroom, the business went on to secure over $1m in revenue in its first 12 months and is seen as a best practice case study in entrepreneurship.  Lorraine is a thoughtleader in entrepreneurship, leadership, innovation, marketing and social media; having spoken to over 3,000 people on three national speaking tours with entrepreneur organisation The Entourage.  She has also spoken at industry events including Vivid Sydney, Business Chicks, Collective Hub, General Assembly, Mumbrella’s CommsCon, BeFest, IAA, Social Media Week and Problogger Training Event. Lorraine’s first book Remarkability was published by Hachette Australia in June 2016; and is an entertaining and practical account of the biggest lessons she has learned in her entrepreneurial and business journey.  The book went on to become a best-seller. Her second book, Get Remarkably Organised was released in January 2018. Lorraine was named one of BRW’s Five Young Entrepreneurs to Watch and one of Dynamic Business’s Young Guns.  She has featured frequently in media, including The Project, Sunrise, The Today Show, Sydney Morning Herald, Collective Hub, Marie Claire, Sky News, ABC News and The Australian. In this episode we cover: Lorraine’s journey – including the challenges – to become a mama. The biggest piece of advice when planning a business and getting pregnant. The lesson of acceptance and surrender around shifting plans. How the ‘unplanned’ has fed into business life What Lorraine did to plan for the unplanned. Handing over control for that which sets your soul on fire. How motherhood forces you to focus on what you love. Framing work positively for our children – creating joy around business. The choice to blend rather than juggle business and motherhood and what the difference is. The challenges with being present as a mama when you run a business. What ‘blending’ looks like as a mama and entrepreneur. How important positive self-talk and compassion is. Becoming your own mindset coach. Patience as compassion. The parallels of starting a business to new motherhood. Being conscious of where your time is spent Surrounding yourself with other working mums. Co-creating a work culture as a mama and business owner. Lorraine’s challenges and wins in life, business and motherhood. The importance of Sunday Night Planning.  The essential daily communication required. What your children are learning from your entrepreneurship. How to run your family like a business and your business like a family. Staying open, dropping expectations and communicating. How Lorraine looks after herself and blends her self care into business and baby. Conscious me-time as a mama and business owner. How Lorraine frees her mind, fuels her body and feeds her soul. How to get remarkably organised like Lorraine Murphy and her new book!

Episode #16: Navigating Transitions + The In Spaces Between with Rachel MacDonald

Episode #16: Navigating Transitions + The In Spaces Between with Rachel MacDonald

Posted January 22, 2018

Episode #16: Navigating Transitions + The In between Spaces with Rachel MacDonald I feel that sort of pinch-me lucky that I have women like Rachel MacDonald in my life. If you don’t know who Rach is well you are going to feel much the same by the end of this episode. I’ve always valued our friendship but since we both become mamas and have journeyed the sometimes rocky and definitely unchartered waters together, well it’s safe to say she is high up on my list of beloveds! Those rocky waters I mentioned – the highs and lows of motherhood – brought to the surface huge life lessons and spiritual assignments (for us both!). I  know from talking to Rach often that she (and I!) was deep in transition – transitioning between one life and another. Between one way of being and another. Tight-rope walking between the unknown. Motherhood does that. That transition period has delivered so much golden wisdom that YOU are going to soak up in this episode. In this week’s episode I chat to Rachel about this transition – one I am personally still deep within in. Rach has now come out the other side of this transition period – reawakened and bursting with creativity and purpose again. And with that reawakening has come a major download from the heavens and huge education process which she will soon be passing over to us via a juicy, wisdom filled, light soaked offering. Rachel has honoured her transition period by retreating and not forcing herself to show up in anyway other than what felt natural for her. Many of you have been quietly waiting for her re-emergence – if that is you, get ready for all that she has to say and offer on In Spaces Between. In this episode we cover: What a transitional period is. How the changes can unfold in different ways.  New beginning and the new iteration post transition. What to do when we are in transition. Transitions as natural and inevitable – how to embrace them. Rachel’s personal examples of transitions and shifts. Rachel’s journey through baby, business and life transitions. How to embrace transitions when they are so challenging. Dancing between the joy of a new way of being and the questions that come up. The intense periods of discovery and healing.  Embracing the opportunity to clear out the deeply buried beliefs and programs. Leaning in to transition. Don’t judged the space between – heal what needs to be healed. The experience of losing faith through a transition. Coming into greater alignment with your truest desires via the discomfort. Resistance – the big part of transition. Seeking versus surrendering – how to find the balance. Accepting when life is not on your timeline. How to explore where you are resisting and controlling. Taking action – don’t be passive. Practices that support you in transition – the rituals and processes. Tracking your wins and progress. How to accept the transition. The importance of sharing your transition with someone. Making a bold decision. Rachel’s next offering for you – all on Transitions and the In Spaces Between The importance of honouring your transition and disconnecting if needed.

Posted December 12, 2017

Episode #10: The 5 ‘S’s of a Soulfully Centred Mama In the early week’s and months of life with my little babe back in 2015 I found myself frequently writing notes, musings, diary entries and thoughts into my evernote. One of these notes was my take on motherhood – particularly the 5 key attitudes and ways of being and navigating through motherhood. The 5 S’s of a Soulfully Centred Mama soon became my personal ethos, mantras and guidance system. having recently read through this note I felt it important to share this with all of you beautiful mamas out there – papas too and even those without children. This is really supportive for everyone! In this episode I share: The background story of The 5 S’s How this can be applied to all – mamas/papas but also anyone seeking a conscious, soulful life What the 5 S’s are in summary and in detail The essence of the 5 S’s Surrender and how powerful it can be How sacrifice can be reframed into a positive choice The importance of self-love Embracing the simplicity of motherhood The deliciousness of diving into the sweetness of motherhood Listen to the episode: Subscribe on iTunes Click here to subscribe on iTunes and never miss an episode! +++ Show notes: Check out The Happiest Baby for Dr Karp’s 5 S’s for Soothing Babies.

Episode #9: An integrated journey to health and happiness with Dr Kate Wood

Episode #9: An integrated journey to health and happiness with Dr Kate Wood

Posted December 05, 2017

Episode #9: An integrated journey to health and happiness with Dr Kate Wood Sometimes the universe creates these chance meetings that are so beautifully orchestrated it actually blows my mind. One such chance meeting was the day I met Dr Kate Wood. It was down at Coogee Beach, at the children’s rock pool. Naturally, as us mamas do, I noticed her little boy, Maxi first. He was in a bright orange wet suit (it was still early spring and Sydney waters are cold then!) and he was being ridiculously adorable crawling and splashing through the shallow waters. It didn’t take long for me to notice his mama, Kate. Also in a bright orange swim suit. Her face bright, her eyes sparkling with such joy and infectious love. Healthy, glowing, fit. We started chatting and instantly I knew I had struck gold. This woman, humble yet bubbly, was clearly very smart, switched on, health conscious and connected (by connected, I mean spiritually!) Before long Kate, myself and another beautiful mama had formed our own little Mama Tribe. All so different yet like-minded and with aligned values. I fell madly in love with this woman who would continue to reveal herself to me as one of the most gifted, compassionate, loving, intelligent and dedicated women I’ve ever known. Kate – A doctor, chiropractor, kinesiologist, doula, author, co-owner of the well known Health Space Clinics  (15 of them!) and mama of two – is a remarkable a woman, but she will never make you feel inadequate because this woman is real, authentic, conscious, soulful. Mix all that up with a deep innate desire to serve and support others and you have a woman I feel blessed to know. I want you to know her too, and her journey – there are many stories I know Kate can share but today we are going to dive into her Integrated Journey back to Health and Happiness after suffering from Lyme Disease. Kate doesn’t do anything by halves, seriously, and yet she is not an advocate for ‘super mum/woman’, pushing all the time and living in stress. She knows too well what all that can to our mind-body-soul. Kate inspires the pants off me. She, without even attempting to, drives me to be a more conscious human being, a present and patient mama, a positive and bright light in the world and one that is lives in and spreads wellness. In this episode we cover: What’s one way you can free your mind, fuel your body and feel your soul? Kate shares her personal health journey – because it’s a good one! We shine the light on Lyme disease How Kate healed herself. The natural modalities and integrated approach Kate uses for herself, How Kate stays fit, healthy and aligned. The best changes to make to heal and live in health holistically How to apply this to your children Creating your own natural modality tool-kit The power changing your mindset, beliefs and thoughts for your health Kate’s biggest wish when it comes to the way we live, move, eat, heal?

Episode #4: How to create a yoga and meditation practice that sticks

Episode #4: How to create a yoga and meditation practice that sticks

Posted November 22, 2017

Episode #4: The A to Your Q with Claire Obeid. How to create a yoga and meditation practice that sticks (as a mama!) One of my beautiful tribe members, Kate Harrison from Little Yarrow has sent in this questions: “I’d love to hear about how you find time for yoga and meditation with a little one and how to create a practice that sticks”. Thank you Kate for sending in this question. It’s one that I know so many mamas and even those without children often ask. Why is it that many of us struggle to find the time and consistently maintain those practices that we both love and need? Self-sabotage perhaps? All seems too hard? Maybe. In this episode I share how I personally find the time for the two practices that keep me whole – yoga and meditation – and how I make it stick; consistently showing up to these practices. In this episode I share: The importance of scheduling How to ease, incrementally, towards your goal Why compassion is everything The power of committment without rigidity What my personal practice looks like Dropping the competition with yourself and others Inviting presence into your day Creativity is key to showing up to your practice Listen to the episode: Show notes: Head here to visit my YouTube Channel for a few of my favourite yoga practices. +++ I should also add, which I forgot to mention in the episode, is that getting support so you can attend a class is super special and important too. Or maybe it’s attending a mums and bubs class or a somewhere with a creche! What about you? How do you show up to your practice around your children? Do you have any tricks that have worked for you?

The Wellness Project Podcast is here!

The Wellness Project Podcast is here!

Posted November 21, 2017

Today is a good day. Today marks twenty weeks in this second pregnancy. I’m now halfway through this pregnancy. Not only does that mean that we are getting closer to meeting this little soul baby but it also marks another key milestone, the second trimester feel-good factor! At twenty weeks I am feeling alive, creative, on-fire, vital, energetic. Such a far cry from the way I felt from week 5 – 14. Ugh. The journey of pregnancy is one of deep transformation and creation. It’s a time when I (mostly) feel my creative energy is being poured into the making of this baby, and there are not reserves left for much else. However and gratefully, during this second trimester and right here at week 20 I feel those creative pistons firing again. I feel the spark and excitement that comes forth from this renewed energy and igniting ideas and projects like never before. There is also this sense of purpose and maybe a little pressure (time is of the essence when a little one is on the way) that is driving me right now. This leads me to the birth of my very first podcast. (Ps if you can’t wait CLICK HERE to check it out and subscribe!) Today has been made even better with the release of The Wellness Project Podcast with Claire Obeid. I first felt the inspiration to create this podcast – a space where I could explore, through the spoken word, how to free your mind, fuel your body and feed your soul – just before I fell pregnant. And then, of course, the dreaded pregnancy sickness kicked in and everything became irrelevant and unimportant. Which is my excitement is at an all time high that today you can start your journey with this podcast – there are 7 delicious episodes to sink into, two of which are guided meditations. I almost thought this was going to be another of those ideas written off, long forgotten and buried forever in my evernote folder. WHY DID I START A PODCAST? I know right, everyone is doing it and I’m probably a little late to the game (standard). To be honest I had never really considered it until one day when chatting to my soul-sister, Connie Chapman, I just thought; ‘Why not claire?’ From that day on Ive had that many people tell me that would love me to start a podcast. Add to that the abundance of incredible feedback I frequently receive on ‘my voice’ – usually when people have purchased one of my meditation albums. Finally, as I shared on social media, I have the gift of the gab. Something that was once seen as a ‘pain’ or ‘irritation’ from family, teachers and the like, is now seen as one of my talents – go figure. I love ‘the word’… I love writing, I love sharing, speaking, teaching, learning, expressing. A podcast just seems like an extension of that and a great way to commune and connect with you. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THE PODCAST? This podcast is pretty much a reflection of me on my wellness journey – everything that intrigues me, lights me up, uplevels me, supports me. I want you to experience all that and more. It’s a mash-up of reflections and musings as I present topics and ideas that relate to mind-body-soul. Self development, self-growth, self-exploration. I share my own thoughts, my own wisdom and guidance and invite you to come of this journey into your mind, body and soul so you too can begin and be on your own wellness project. I also offer free mini-guided meditations, because if there is only ONE thing you do for your well-being and self-development I wish for that to be meditation. I love meditating and supporting others to do the same. So look out for those episodes. And finally, something I didn’t think I would do but couldn’t resist; I interview and chat with people I find inspirational. Thought leaders. Experts. Game-changers. Conscious folk. Its not so much about how famous they are, or how cutting edge, but more about what I feel they can offer in their own creative, curious and unique way. I hope each to these interviews shines a light for you, opens your heart and inspires a new way of thinking, being or believing.  WHY ‘THE WELLNESS PROJECT’? This has been my business name for a long time – I try and drop it but always circle back to it. To me, wellness is a project. It’s not a start-to-finish journey. It’s always evolving, deepening, shifting, pivoting. My journey has seen me dive deep into yoga, meditation, EFT, reflective work, clean eating, movement, spiritual practices, chakra work, reiki, abundance and manifestation practices, shadow work and on the list goes. It is a project- a project in my own well-being and one I am truly in love with.  HOW OFTEN WILL EPISODES BE RELEASED? I’m going to be honest and say this; I’m aiming for weekly… it’ll probably end up being fortnightly, and perhaps post-baby monthly. I’ve learnt the hard way – I’m not hard wired for too much yang energy. When I force, control, over-do, over-plan I crumble. My nervous system can’t cope and my anxiety flares. So I choose instead to have a framework (e.g weekly episodes) and from there I will intuitively respond to what is or isn’t working. HOW LONG ARE THE EPISODES? If it’s an episode where I am riffing/talking/reflecting I will be keeping it to 20 minutes or so. Bite sized chunks of wisdom, spiritual reflection and learnings. Meditations will see-saw between 10-20minutes. Interviews will be a little longer, usually from 40 – 60 minutes. I’m aware that most people listen whilst driving/commuting to work, or cleaning/cooking around the house, exercising etc. I personally find it challenging to finish any podcast episode that is anything longer than an hour. I know so many of you are busy entrepreneurs and mamas/papas. I respect your time and am stupidly grateful […] Read more
