One Woke Mama – Episode 031 – Stop Trying So Hard Mama, Take Rest Instead

One Woke Mama – Episode 031 – Stop Trying So Hard Mama, Take Rest Instead

Posted December 01, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 031 – Stop Trying So Hard Mama, Take Rest Instead It’s time to stop trying so hard. When you are in that state of control – pushing, doing, taking action – despite what your body/mind/soul is calling for then it’s time to take rest. It’s time to be free from that controlling energy, let go, pause and rest. It’s from the rest that you will rise. Motivation, inspiration, action – it’ll all flow again from that space of rest. This is exactly where I am today. The (almost) end of the year and off the back of an intense month with the family and every virus under the sun, I am tired. I am in need of rest. I can’t be F’d anymore. So I’m honouring that by flowing gently, meditating more, resting and doing less. In today’s episode I share these feelings and insights before offering you a 10 minute ‘Be Free From Control’… so tune and listen and when you get 10 minutes free, lay down and enjoy this meditation. This meditation is from the Reveal Your Inner Radiance album – Deeply Relax and Let God.

One Woke Mama – Episode 028 – Mama Guilt and Shame

One Woke Mama – Episode 028 – Mama Guilt and Shame

Posted October 28, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 028 – Mama Guilt and Shame It’s hard to avoid guilt and judgment as mamas – we experience it and we dish it out too. Truthfully, we all know it does no good. It bears down on us, heavy and suffocating and grips our heart when we find ourselves passing judgment. In this podcast with Emma Seibold we explore the importance of choosing love instead. We explore ways to invite more love in and in doing so let go of guilt and judgment3 It all comes down to love. How much do you LOVE yourself? Or at least, how often can you say “I choose love over fear” in this moment. Guilt and Judgment have no place, or strong foot-hold when we slather on compassion, understanding, acceptance… L.O.V.E. I am not going to pretend that guilt and judgment no longer show up in my life. They are there daily. But I can feel, through my body, when they are weaving their way and snaking through my mind leaving a trail of destruction. My chest feels tighter. My breathing shallow. I find myself distracted, disengaged. A lot more focused on the external. Frustrated at EVERYTHING. These are my sign-posts. What are yours? Don’t know them yet? Well GOOD, start tuning in. Pay attention to how you react to conversations, moments with your child(ren), when you’re ‘mumming’… start to notice what triggers you and sends you spiralling into guilt and/or judgment. I journal through realisations when they come to me – moments of clarity around what has sent me into guilt-zone. Or where I’m in judgment. That creates awareness and from that awareness I can’t hide from the ugliness of those emotions. I HAVE to look at it. I must deal with it. So when it happens, in real time I then CHOOSE to breathe through it. To pause, just long enough to not react and over-react. CHOOSE TO COME BACK TO YOUR TRUTH – YOU ARE ENOUGH, MORE THAN ENOUGH. YOU ARE A MAMA, JUST DOING HER BEST. AND THAT IS ENOUGH. The thing is, we are never going to be protected from the onslaught of guilt and judgment – the kind we generate from within ourselves and the kind we get slapped in the face with from friends, family and even random strangers. So we MUST learn how to nurture ourselves – come back to our centre, to regroup, to find trust in what we are doing and who we are being as women, as a mamas, as partners, colleagues, friends, sisters, daughters. ++ Emma Seibold is an inspiration to me. She is not only an incredible entrepreneur, wellness advocate, teacher and business owner but the way she leads with love as a mama AND treats herself with the respect she so deserves – well, that encourages me to be a better mama and woman too. Our conversation is going to light you up – plenty of golden nuggets to treasure and learn from.

One Woke Mama – Episode 027 – Resourcing Yourself And Stretching Your Window Of Tolerance

One Woke Mama – Episode 027 – Resourcing Yourself And Stretching Your Window Of Tolerance

Posted October 20, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 027 – Resourcing Yourself And Stretching Your Window Of Tolerance A comment from a friend got me thinking about why some women, some mothers, need more space, time and tools to refuel and re-centre and why others don’t?  I explore how we are each hardwired a little differently – how the base line state of our nervous system affects how we process and handle experiences in life – such as the relentless and sometimes exhausting days within motherhood. Motherhood forces us to stretch and grow. Some of us find this stretching process to be a gentle one. Perhaps we are don’t find daily life so taxing, others like me can find it really depleting. In this episode I explore WHY we might be different – embodiment, the state of our nervous system, history of trauma affecting our individual window of tolerance and our own stories, beliefs and patterns that shape our being within the world. I also share how we can stretch ourselves to cope and to be in a more resilient, grounded, centred and peaceful state. Using resources, wellness practices, tools and Somatic exercises we can ‘arm’ ourselves up to expand our bandwith, to spend more time in the Optimal Arousal Zone – the space that is centered between the extremes of our nervous system.

One Woke Mama – Episode 026 – Pulled apart and Pulled away before you become the woman you are meant to

One Woke Mama – Episode 026 – Pulled apart and Pulled away before you become the woman you are meant to

Posted October 13, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 026 – Pulled apart and Pulled away before you become the women you are meant to In today’s episode I read you a meme that has been circling on Instagram and one that I deeply resonate with. Exploring the powerful, uncomfortable yet truth-filled notion that Motherhood both pulls you apart, and pulls you away from who you were only to slowly, sometimes painfully rebuilding you into the woman, mother and human being you are meant to be. An initiation by fire. A rite of passage. A transition. The space in between. That place where we are dismantling the old self before recreating the new self -filled with discomfort, confusion, questions, stagnancy, as well as presence, surrender, willingness, beauty, joy. I feel alot of big feelings, there is a pouring out of emotions as I share that space of transition and experience of being pulled away and pulled apart. Sharing this with you is BIG and I do so in the hope that I can bring some gratitude and love into your heart for this powerful journey of matresence, change, transition.

One Woke Mama – Episode 021 – Why it’s OK to say NO to your children

One Woke Mama – Episode 021 – Why it’s OK to say NO to your children

Posted August 27, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 021 – Why it’s OK to say NO to your children As mothers saying NO to our children is not something we are always comfortable with. When we are programmed to believe we are responsible for their ever need, want, desire – their emotional, mental and physical well being – then practising the art of saying NO to your child may not initially be an easy process. I share how I’ve slowly learned the power and importance and art of saying NO to my children (in certain times and situations) and why it’s necessary. Saying No to your child will teach them many things. It Teaches them to honour their capacity. To respect other ppl and be a citizen of the world. Becoming more Empathetic. Teaches them they are OK just sometimes other ppl can’t be there for them and this in turn teaches resilience… But it’s important as a mama as well to be able to hold our energy and our boundaries, to be strong in our decisions and to do some from a place of love and respect. Honouring their needs, seeing their desires but also honouring your capacity to provide and hold space for those needs. It teaches us mamas to constantly be self-referencing and looking after ourselves, not just in automatic pilot mode – putting their needs first and forgetting our own. I do a lot of checking in with myself – if I’m capable of holding space for my children and connecting I do, fully, but I’m also not afraid to tell her if I don’t have the capacity right now to be what she needs or offer what she wants. I’ll give her a framework/guidance as to what and when I can meet her needs. We talk about mamas love bucket inside that’s a bit empty so I need some quiet, yoga, meditation, tea or whatever so I can come back online and ready to serve and be fully with her. She gets it. Other times I crack it and then use it as a way to teach authenticity, showing up as my raw human self and all my flaws. “I’m sorry I snapped honey. I can see I’m a bit tender, off and worn out today… it wasn’t nice to snap at you. It didn’t feel good to do that but I can see I need xxx and you need yyy… let’s find a way together.” Saying NO offers a lot of growth, for all parties involved.

One Woke Mama -Episode 019 – What I’ve Learned About Baby Sleep

One Woke Mama -Episode 019 – What I’ve Learned About Baby Sleep

Posted August 07, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama -Episode 019 – What I’ve Learned About Baby Sleep In Episode 019 I share what I’ve personally learned about Baby Sleep. After two children with poor sleeping and settling behaviour I’ve tried everything and experienced so much more. This is not a practical exploration on HOW to get your baby to sleep better, there is enough information out there from the ‘experts’. No, this is a deep dive into the psycho-emotional-spiritual aspect of baby sleep and how, i feel, at the very core of the challenge is YOU – the mother. As I’ve discovered is the case for me. Through my children’s sleep patterns I was presented a huge mirror, a powerful reflection – showing many unhealed parts of me. Taking me to my edge, over and over. It quickly showed me that the years of meditation and self development work were a beautiful balm, but they had only touched the top layer of healing. I had to go deep. In this episode I share: My personal experience with both babies. I share how my spiritual practices stopped working for me and how I knew then that I had to dig deeper into healing. The many factors that come into play from behaviour, development, teething, growth spurts, sickness etc. Sleep training Rafael and how I involved him in the process of discussion and decision I explore what the common denominator was between both children and their sleep patterns I touch on birth, genetics and how these effect sleep How it all comes back to the nervous system What a dysregulated, over active nervous system means emotionally through the lens of a baby (and your sub conscious too!) How babies take on our story and programming through their interconnectedness to our energy, nervous system, emotions. Why sleep training won’t always work and what needs to happen to ensure it does Why it all comes back to you, the mama!

One Woke Mama – Episode 018 – It’s time to show up for your tribe

One Woke Mama – Episode 018 – It’s time to show up for your tribe

Posted August 04, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama -Episode 018 – It’s time to show up for your tribe In Episode 018 I explore the layers or tribe, the village and support. I dive into the tribe online. How our society has carved out a different way for us to connect and how it has also changed the village vibe that we all so need and crave. I also look at the importance of letting others parent our children and support us through that shared experience of parenting. When our children have an extended circle of aunties, uncles, grandparents, neighbours to share the load we can see how that shapes who they are, teaches them about the world, about compassion and also about connection. It also allows us to rest in and accept the support of others and to fully embrace the truth that we aren’t meant to be all things to all people – particularly our children. I also shine a light on where and how you might be co-dependant and weighed down by expectations that your partner or other close family member must support you and be everything to you – in every way. Which is unrealistic, disempowering and ultimately leaves you insecure about your ability to cope and handle motherhood. I explore and ask: How does tribe benefit us? How does it benefit ourselves? How do we cultivate and find our tribe considering the way our society is now structured? How do we face up to our co-dependancy and expectations of another’s support? How do we take back ownership for our needs and cultivate our own version of the village? How do we call in our own tribe? Are you waiting for your tribe to find you or is it time for you to show up for your tribe? +++ Show notes: Click here to join my EFT Masterclass (live round commences August 11th) – The Alchemy of Emotional Freedom My new online masterclass that will teach you the powerful, yet simple tools of EFT combined with Chakras, White Light and Essential Oils.

One Woke Mama -Episode 017- I’m so tired of being tired. Is there another way?

Posted July 28, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama -Episode 017 – Finding Stillness Experience Lightness with Guided Meditation In Episode 017 I dive into how by leading with and sharing how I am always “tired” with others I meet and interact with that I am inviting more of that heavy, exhausted energy into my body. What would happen if I chose to still be authentic, and in my truth but to share, lead with and lean into a different aspect. Something more positive? Something of a higher vibration? Perhaps this would start to create a shift in how I show up for the day and how I engage with my family and community. Could it change the way I think and feel? Could it change the patterning and beliefs I live by? In this episode I share: + How I have swung so far in presenting my authentic self that my default is to lead with the more negative aspects of how I am feeling. + I share the steps in creating change – awareness, mental and cognitive shift, change in language and feeling in body, coming into a new alignment and then manifesting something different, more positive. + The tools I have been harnessing lately to short circuit my default patterning, to lay down new feelings and beliefs in my system + Meditation, EFT and more. + My new, just launched EFT Program – The Alchemy of Emotional Freedom with a very early bird rate.
