One Woke Mama – Episode011 – Becoming a whole being mama; embracing the light and shadow within you

One Woke Mama – Episode011 – Becoming a whole being mama; embracing the light and shadow within you

Posted June 16, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood In this episode I explore what it means to become and and to be a whole being mama from the space of fully embracing and integrating all shades of ourselves. The light. the dark. The grey in between. The shadows as well as all that which we label to be good and right – the parts of ourselves we are happy to own and wear proudly and the parts that we aren’t willing to look at and prefer to hide away. What does it mean to you to finally be OK with all parts and pieces of you, instead of condemning one quality and applauding another? Instead of trying to fix parts of you that you label broken, to instead love all of you and what it provides – to you, your family, your children and the world you are in. In episode 011 I simply riff, on planned, on this powerful idea of embracing yourself in wholeness, warts and all.

One Woke Mama – Episode 09 – Differentiating & separating from your child

One Woke Mama – Episode 09 – Differentiating & separating from your child

Posted June 02, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 09 – Differentiating & separating from your child From the moment you find out that you are pregnant, through pregnancy, including birth and beyond you are connected to your child. You feel one. You breathe in sync. Feel in sync. Think in sync. The connection is unseen but my god is it powerful. So it’s no surprises that for so many of us mamas it’s an unbearable and unthinkable task to create ‘separation’…But once those newborn days are over and you’d kicked into toddler years there is a shift. This can be a challenging stage – with all of their big feelings and new experiences to navigate. And how do we navigate those big feelings without letting those feelings become ours? How do we stay different to our children, separate from them and yet still hold space for them? So what’s the fall out look like for me, when my children receive a NO to their needs? When I simply cannot meet their needs for whatever reason that may be – it’s unsafe, its not suitable for me in that moment, it’s simply not possible. Or what does it look like when my child is feeling something BIG. Moving through a huge transition? Dealing with a rejection. A moment of discomfort. A hurt heart. How do we hold space for our child, allow them to be in and feel and grow through their experience without losing ourselves in it all? How do we create the necessary separation to hold space in the most healthy and powerful and supportive way and NOT get so lost that we cannot see what they are feeling versus who you are and what you are feeling amongst it all. What triggers this inability to seperate? How can we foster a healthy attachment AND healthy separation? Why do we need to question this melting pot we’ve become part of with our children? What is the way through to the other side – a healthier, more balanced and centred place respectful of each others individuality? All of this is explored and dissected in episode 09.

One Woke Mama – Episode 08 – Woke Parenting to Children That We Don’t Own

One Woke Mama – Episode 08 – Woke Parenting to Children That We Don’t Own

Posted May 26, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Episode 08 – Woke Parenting to Children That We Don’t Own In Episode 08, inspired by a poem from Khalil Gibran, I explore what it means to be a woke or conscious parenting to children that we don’t own. The idea that are children are from us, but not OURS changes the way we view, treat and respond to our children. It’s a shift in perspective, a paradigm change, that in turns shifts how we show up as parents, mamas. Less telling more asking. Less controlling more suggesting. Less force more flow. It’s a new idea that has been gaining traction over the years, alongside the parenthood awakening. And it is one that takes effort in living congruently with because it requires us to dismantle our learned beliefs about children, childhood and parenting. This is especially true if we came from a traditional parent-child dynamic where we were required to be seen and not heard, to do as we are told and to stay out of parents way. Where we were controlled, dictated and governed every step of the way. *Language Warning – plug in your headphones if around your little ones. There is minimal swearing in this episode, but nonetheless the F-Bomb is there! +++ Show Notes The Prophet – Khalil Gibran +++ Listen to Episode 08 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.

Episode #29: The birth I never thought I’d have – Bringing Rafael into the world

Episode #29: The birth I never thought I’d have – Bringing Rafael into the world

Posted August 06, 2018

Episode #29: The birth I never thought I’d have – bringing Rafael into the world. I’m now 14 weeks postpartum. That means, 14 weeks with my beautiful, angel boy, Rafael. A little one that has come to help me heal deep wounds and to grow in love and light. And it has taken me this long to find the time and space to record for you this very special podcast. An episode that is of course deeply personal but incredibly powerful and rich in golden wisdom and lessons that only BIRTH can deliver. I have to say here; I am not only so proud of how I birthed – seriously, the level of presence, acceptance and strength required is something I will always applaud myself for! But I am mostly so proud of, in awe of and deeply respectful of WOMEN. Women are fierce. Fuelled by the Divine Feminine force – the energy of creation. Of life. Connecting the earth with the higher realms. Bridging that gap to bring eager souls earth side. You get it, right? Women birth. Women are magic. Full stop. No matter how birth unfolds it really is beautiful, powerful, sacred, miraculous and requires a openness and spirit that only women have. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this story. One I share in the hope that it provides you dear mama with healing, or you beautiful mama-to-be with empowerment and understanding, or to you gorgeous woman with pride and solidarity. And to you, the conscious, loving men of the world with respect and reverence for the Divine Feminine who moves through us mamas. In this episode I cover: A quick recap on my first birthing experience Why I want to share my personal birth story with you Our personal birth story; bringing Rafael into the world The unexpected twists and turns.  The importance and power of staying calm, present, aware and surrendered in ALL situations. The truth about manifesting and why you want always get what you wont (but what YOU need!) A HUGE lesson on LOVE and how it transcends all.

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. How do you feel about death? P.s if you loved this episode, don’t forget to give this podcast a 5-star review in iTunes so I can keep on bringing you amazing interviews, insights and chats. I’d be so grateful to receive your feedback and comments, whatever they may be. love + light, Claire Read more

Episode #24: Embodying your soul, Energy upgrades, Vibration and Intuition and with Lauren Aletta

Posted March 13, 2018

Episode #24: Embodying and living from your soul with Lauren Aletta from Inner Hue I’ve watched Lauren and her work from the sidelines for a long time  – and with such respect, fascination and a sense of envy for how she works with soul, intuition, energy and creativity.

I spent most of this interview calling on my intuition and guidance to help me FEEL the truth of what Lauren shares. We move through energy and energy upgrades, talking about vibration and intuition. All the way into embodying soul and the experience of being human.

Momentum of conscious expansion and how we ‘catch’ it Our relationship with the planetary systems, the universe and its vibration Why we are rapidly and consciously expanding and evolving The push-pull between the soul and the human self Rapid vibrational development – which we can’t see Telepathic and Energetic communication How intuition can be cultivated  Children and their natural intuition, curiosity and connectionLauren shares how she first discovered her intuitive gifts as a child What it means to be on board but no longer in control Following a feeling – staying in alignment Knowing exactly what you are doing yet knowing nothing Internal awakening + rapid ascension on a soul level My reason for wanting to connect with Lauren – my personal transition and soul journey The privilege of being in physical form and contributing as a human Embodying the soul and the human experience versus the spirit and higher self The space in between when we are shifting and upgrading Knowing spirit and source via the body Spiritually bypassing and escaping from the human experience Enlightened beings, ascended masters are awakened because of their body/human experience The need for duality to experience our spirit and soul Knowing your bigness via constriction, limitations, trauma, unpleasantness and struggles How your physical body and energy field stores information and how this can disembody us How to live from, commune with and be guided from our soul Experience of living with soul as a more flexible, fluid experience Spirit living as a more structured, masculine experience.
