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

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.
