Has Scarcity Thinking Got It's HOOKS In You?

Scarcity: The quality or state of being scarce; especially: want of provisions for the support of life.

In other words- not enough! 

Initially, many of us might have a hard time revealing how this theme plays out in our daily lives, and yet it’s very much alive in our daily thought patterns, especially now with so much fear being activated. Exposing where it likes to live (usually in the shadows) can be a valuable exercise!  

Scarcity affects our thinking and also how we feel. It can tend to orient us toward automatically focusing on our unfulfilled needs. It can make us feel anxious, fearful and grasping.  For example, the idea of needing a partner in order to feel fulfilled. We might settle for someone as a partner even if he/she/they are not the exact right fit for us because we believe that another opportunity won’t come knocking. This is scarcity thinking at play.  To look fearfully at our future and expect the worst or to anticipate all of...

Podcast Episode 12 The Power of Self-Forgiveness

Self-loathing is its own special kind of trauma. In this episode, I recall a story of finding self-forgiveness in the most unlikely of places, with my daughter in the epi-center of a huge parent fail!
 
Join us in this episode as Andrea and I unpack what happens and how, by not abandoning ourselves, we create access points for healing and self-forgiveness. 

"Self forgiveness can create a portal to retrieve pieces of ourselves." - Monica Rodgers

Show Notes:

  • We traumatize ourselves when we self-loathe
  • Our children offer us opportunities to be human and to own our mess. 
  • What happens when we dare to STAY with our human mess? 
  • Healing happens when we allow our emotions to move through us.
  • When we choose to stop escaping our humanity, we are able to see how precious we are in our intentions. 
  • When we don’t minimize our true...

Podcast Episode 11 The Power of Witnessing Pt. 1

Today's episode is all about the power of witness.

Learn why "witnessing" and acknowledgment is such a simple yet profound tool for making the people in our lives feel seen and known.  When we truly feel seen by another human being we experience the true beauty of what intimacy and love is all about. 

Today, we talk about the distinctions between seeking validation and being witnessed by another. The importance of being able to receive acknowledgment from someone vs. run away from it. The true meaning of taking a stand and being a witness to incidents such as social injustice and what you can do, and who you can BE to model the change we all wish to see in the world. 

 

"Your job is to be present as a witness and receive what it is she wants to give." - Monica Rodgers

Hey! It's Andrea here.

On today's episode I'm riding solo, and I'm talking about saying SORRY.

I grew up saying "I'm sorry" all the time, maybe you did too. We overuse this word all the time, but is it actually a masking of other emotions?

Seven Symptoms of Spiritual Death

The contrast of life has always fascinated me.

Death and rebirth are two sides of one cycle of life that can be experienced in multiple realms. In a physical sense, we all eventually die a literal death, but I see its process mirrored in nature as the season of winter blankets the ground and everything goes dormant and into hibernation, including us! 

Death in the spiritual sense can be hard for me to identify right away. Instead, I usually think I'm losing it until I recognize what's actually happening. Recently I had such an experience where I suddenly felt like the world as I knew was being turned upside down, and while I had already felt a sense of inner shifting, this event really accelerated the process, threatening my whole world order. 

With so much inner work over the years, I've noticed my ability to be much more at ease with this apparent chaos. If I can remember to allow myself to be in the discomfort of whats...
