One Woke Mama – Episode 042 – The Different Ways We Respond To A Crisis

One Woke Mama – Episode 042 – The Different Ways We Respond To A Crisis

Posted March 22, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 042 – The Different Ways We Respond To A Crisis When we experience a crisis, or a traumatic event, like the Global one we are in now thank to COVID-19, everyone responds differently. Our nervous system kicks into sympathetic (survival) mode, thankfully, which is such a blessing. However, the FIGHT-FLIGHT-FREEZE response can show up differently for each person, which means they will behave, talk, think in different ways to say, how you might be. Today’s episode is shining a light on this very difference. Highlighting how important it is to lead with compassion right now. Let’s avoid blame, shame and judgement as each of us shows up and responds to this crisis in our own hard-wired ways.  Yes we can support each other with different perspectives, ideas, information, but mostly I feel it’s important to accept where each person is at without anger, judgement and frustration. We have never experienced anything like this, and all of us are figuring this out one day at a time. So I ask you to tune into what’s underneath a person’s behaviour or reaction and lead with your compassionate, understanding heart. This is what our global community needs right now. Love. Trust. Hope. Faith. Courage. Compassion. +++ And to support you to cope with this experience, to relieve anxiety and to stretch your bandwidth for what you can hold during this time please join my FREE FB group – 7 Days of Emotional Alchemy. 7 Days of practices for your mind-body-soul to nourish, ground, centre, nurture, uplift, raise your vibes, heal.

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 041 – How to resource yourself and hold space for emotions One Woke Mama – Episode 041 – How to resource yourself and hold space for emotions. When we are triggered, by our children, our work, partner, or just by LIFE, working through somatic practice – working with your body – can be a powerful way to show up in the moment as you need to. Body-based resourcing will allow you to stay present with what is, to understand and even heal your triggers. There are many moments in our day when we are shown something within us, a wound, a past story, that is ready to be seen, felt and released. This happens to me so often with my children, through my relationships and even clients. I see triggers as beautiful opportunities to continue my own healing and therefore awakening. But how to actually BE with what is? That’s when being with our body, harnessing simple somatic practices and moving through those triggers is potent work.I share some simple and powerful practices to help you stay resourced during such triggered moments. In this episode I also dive into what it looks like and why we want to hold space for emotions – not just our children’s emotions but ours as well. The next step after – we have cognitive awareness and shifts, after we consciously awaken to our blocks, shadows and triggers – is to allow healing to happen via our body. Our body KNOWS – it keeps the score of past pain and experiences, of wounds and shadows. It holds on to them – as a way to protect us, but ultimately can lead to so much disease and pain. So when we reach the stage where we are ready to feeling into our body and release FROM our body, this will be a profound shift in your journey of healing, growth, awakening and consciousness.

One Woke Mama – Episode 040 – Healing the heart from the shadows within (meditation!)

Posted March 01, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 040 – Healing the heart from the shadows within (meditation!) February has been a month of deep, somatic healing for me. I had a sense that it would be ‘big’ for me in some way – but I hadn’t anticipated the body-based healing I would experience (the first was the KaHuna Massage – see episode 038 and the second was a breathwork workshop – more to come on that soon). My heart has been doing a lot of releasing; deep shadows and blocks from within. Ancient hurts and wounds. Broken dreams and heartache. The what and why of it all is truly irrelevant. I’ve simply followed what my soul has wanted to do, to release and to feel. Today’s episode is in line with how I am feeling at the moment – I’m called to meditate on my heart and flood it with love and light; releasing block and shadows. One at a time. I hope you enjoy this healing heart meditation – one I created for my Om Mama Love members and is now available for you to purchase as a downloadable bundle – get it HERE; www.claireobeid.com/ommamalove Please carve out the time for this 12 minute practice. It’s simple. It’s beautiful. It’s profound. And beautiful mama, I’m sure that you need it! (Because we ALL need healing.)

One Woke Mama – Episode 039 – Acknowledging Fear, Stress and Worry with Maria Golding.

One Woke Mama – Episode 039 – Acknowledging Fear, Stress and Worry with Maria Golding.

Posted February 25, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 039 – Acknowledging Fear, Stress and Worry with Maria Golding. Sometimes we are so deep into our fear and stress that we can’t see it and therefore can’t do anything about it. It is the awareness of it, the simple acknowledgment of it that can create real shifts. As mamas we get lost in thee day-to-day, everything that ‘needs’ doing. If we can learn to acknowledge how we are feeling and shine the light of awareness, we might find real shifts and positive turns are possible. This episode is from my private Om Mama Love membership – which is no longer running. I had the pleasure of chatting with Maria Golding – who is a leader on all things parenting, motherhood blending with spirituality and the latest in science. Talking to Maria Golding is like being held, in a big warm mama embrace. It’s as if the divine mother herself in all her wisdom and love has you in her arms. Maria’s years of work with mamas comes through in our chat – you will really learn the power of acknowledgement and awareness and how this can create for a more beautiful, empowered and intuitive mama journey. A few extra thoughts: As mamas we are often in our head so much – planning, prepping, worrying, analysing, judging. We can be filled with fear and joy all at the same time. Our body can retain stress leaving us feel tight and wound up. It’s not easy putting your all into another being – even if it’s the most fulfilling job on the planet. Truthfully though, all these fears, worry and stressors don’t aid us in anyway. It’s best we let them go. That’s easier said than done, though, right? I remember noticing, once little S had arrived, how much MORE I was in my head than I had been for years. No amount of meditation or pre-baby self development work was going to shut up the ego voice of fear, worry and with that anxiety and stress. It actually shocked me. I felt that all my ‘hard work’ on becoming more mindful and present actually had been totally lost. That I had ‘fallen apart’… Until I remembered something powerful. These fears – this EGO suit that we put on that calls up to the surface all of the worries, concerns and what-ifs – are here to help us survive. We think and behave in this way because we MUST learn how to survive and copy. And becoming a mama is like going into battle – (maybe no where near as messy and painful!) it’s unknown and it can be confused and brutal at times. Our ego, and all the concerns it brings to the surface is simply just doing its job – protecting us (and our babies) and trying to survive in what is now a totally new world and existence. So, with that remembrance I chose and still choose daily to not judge myself and to not get lost in disappointment. Instead I THANK my ego, I thank those fears and worries for showing up and keeping me diligent and focused but I quietly remind my fears that they can now dial right now. They are now allowed to take the back seat and switch gears (or even volume to a quiet hush in the background). THE FOREGROUND INSTEAD BECOMES FILLED WITH PRESENCE, WITH CONSCIOUSNESS, WITH NON-REACTIONARY BEHAVIOUR, WITH REMEMBERING TO BREATHE AND PAUSE AND UNTANGLE FROM THE MESSY WEB OF MY MIND. Moving out of fight, flight or freeze mode when our nervous system is on high alert, and choosing to enter a calmer, more relaxed state in body and mind we not only gently nudge those fears out of the limelight but we also create space for clarity, for positivity, for lateral thinking, for joy. When all of that can show up we can then tackle those fears and worries without getting lost in them. That is just messy, uncomfortable, unhelpful. We want peace, more often than not. We want to return to peace when we are caught up in fear, stress and worry. Peace is our innate nature and peace proves, again and again, to offer SO much more in running our lives. SO WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF MADLY TICKING THINGS OFF YOUR LIST TO DO, KNOW THIS, DEEP DOWN YOUR ACTUAL INTENTION IS TO SOOTHE THE ANXIETY WITHIN YOU. YOU ARE REALLY SEARCHING FOR PEACE, AREN’T YOU? In that moment, perhaps try instead to ask yourself; “What would bring me into presence and call in more peace?” And do that instead. Or perhaps I should say BE that instead. The list will still be waiting for you later when you are ready to tackle it from a place of peace instead of anxiety.

One Woke Mama – Episode 037 – Why it’s ok when can’t see ahead of you

One Woke Mama – Episode 037 – Why it’s ok when can’t see ahead of you

Posted January 27, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 037 – Why it’s ok when can’t see ahead of you In this episode I take you back ten years ago to a time when, (after a lot of confusion, uncertainty whilst in a deep transition) I started to find my way, my purpose and back into the light. As I turn 38 today (January 27th), reflecting on that time ten years ago has been a powerful reminder that sometimes, when we are in the thick of change, transformation and redefining ourselves we can’t always SEE what’s next. What is ahead of us is unknown – we don’t know what’s next. Now, ten years ago, motherhood has brought me into a similar space of transition. A transition where I have had to redefine who I am as a woman, in everyday. A dismantling of the old, a peeling back of the layers, a restructuring of the woman I am. Today’s episode I share WHY it’s totally ok, and in fact necessary, when you can’t see what’s ahead. Despite the shadowy, challenging times, not knowing with certainty of what’s to come is actually precisely part of the beauty of our inner and outer transformations.

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 036 – Asking for guidance, support and love with Amy Landry One of the hardest things – for many of us – to do is ask for help.

One Woke Mama – Episode 035 – Re-parenting your inner child through disallowed joy, excitement and fulfillment

One Woke Mama – Episode 035 – Re-parenting your inner child through disallowed joy, excitement and fulfillment

Posted January 12, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 035 – Re-parenting your inner child through disallowed joy, excitement and fulfillment Let’s talk about Inner Child work. We all have inner child wounds. We have many “inner children’ within – different versions of ourself at different ages and stages, split off and caught/frozen in that energy, attitude, behaviour, feeling, wounding. This is true for all of u. Whether we have experienced trauma that is classified as a major life event, something that completely redirected the path of your life – we call this BIG T Trauma; something happened that was too much too soon or too fast. Or even if you experienced those everyday, small T trauma experiences… the daily hurts and unmet needs. Let’s not feel distressed about that – these inner children are beautiful teachers and guides. They want to be brought up and healed. And it’s not something you can force. When that part of you is ready to reveal itself, come to the surface and be seen, it means you are now ready to face it and provide healing. That’s why for so many of us motherhood triggers many of our inner shadows. The child or many versions of the child within you, comes to the surface via the experience of parenting your own children. It’s spectacular. Often so challenging and at times painful, but beautiful nonetheless. Why? Because we get to reparent ourself. In doing so. We heal that wounded child within and redirect the course of our life, how we show up daily, our experience of motherhood, womanhood and LIFE. From there this redirects and shifts how YOU PARENT your own child. Shaping a more positive pathway for your little one, and in doing so positively shaping the impact your child has on this world.

One Woke Mama – Episode 034  – Why we cannot avoid struggles and challenges, but we can show up spiritually in the face of hardship.

Posted January 12, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 034  – Why we cannot avoid struggles and challenges, but we can show up spiritually in the face of hardship. Bushfires are raging through our country and many of us, especially those in the spiritual/self development world are faced with how to SHOW up, take action, pay attention and yet still be a “spiritual being having a human experience…” Firstly, spiritual bypassing is not the way. We cannot ignore what’s going on in the world, in our homes and families and around us by only focusing on being LOVE and LIGHT only. We can take action in some way, privately or publicly. In a small way or a big way. Whatever way feels good and true for you. As a coach, I never,  ever say to my clients that doing spiritual work, raising your vibration, focusing on love and light will leave you immune to suffering, hardship, struggle. For many reasons: 1. Your personal soul journey might experience growth through struggle. 2. Struggle leads to gold that can be mined, always. 3. Human experience is to dive into all sides – shadow and light. That’s what you’re here for. 4. You cannot prevent struggles and challenges happening to those around you, your community, your world. And if you think you are immune to it, i’m sorry, you’re wrong. Even as mamas we witness this daily – we cannot protect our children from every struggle and hurt and challenge. We aren’t meant to – that’s how they grow. As a Coach, there is something I do focus on – how can I help you learn, practice and be armed up with spiritual, energetic, emotional, mental, physical tools to support yourself through hard times. To level up. To manage your energetic boundaries, to ground yourself, to calm your nervous system, to pray, to meditate, to clear your blocks and beliefs and fears. The Relationship with coach and client is like a guide or map reader in the driver of a car. You drive. you are the driver, always, but I am there to give you the directions. To suggest the short cut, or perhaps even the long road to where you want to go. Navigate the bumps and the confusing roads ahead. Keeping you cool and calm and collected when you feel lost.  And also just holding space for when you lose your shit and encouraging you to pull over and pause. We can use our spiritual tools to navigate hard times. To face our challenges. To be present, loving and high vibrational AND positive despite the shadow we feel we are in. That’s how we find the light again. Listen to Episode 034: Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.
