To discuss these shifts, I’m sitting down with Dr. Veronica Eyo, a licensed therapist who specializes in supporting moms of color, and Rosalyn Davis, a community builder, breathwork practitioner, and new mom. This episode is full of honest takes about what the transition into motherhood can feel like, how new and seasoned mothers can reconnect with themselves, and how we can all reparent ourselves.

Have you ever felt impatient while waiting for your manifestations to come through? Same, friend. And I’m talking all about it in today’s episode. Though I didn’t consciously know what manifestation until my 20’s, I realized I’d been manifesting my entire life. In fact, we all have. We all have the power to manifest, and we are all constantly manifesting whether we’re aware of it or not. And when we become aware, we’re able to intentionally tap into our manifestation power. I discuss my personal experiences learning about and understanding manifestation, some manifestations I’ve had come through, and how I’m learning to be patient and prepare for my manifestations to come through in the physical realm.

Did you know that yoga is so much more than stretching and moving through poses? Spoiler: that’s just one limb of yoga - and there are eight. We’ve talked a lot about finding stillness, peace, making connection to the breath, and flowing into your creativity. And that all sounds so simple, but finding ways to reframe our relationship to our inner and outer world is such a game-changer. For me, yoga helped me open my eyes to the ways I can be present with myself and tune into my own form of balance. I’ve just completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training, and it’s taught me a lot about mindfulness and the gift it is to be one with yourself. In this episode, I’ll be sharing my journey into yoga and the lessons that I’ve learned so you can carry them with you without having to pick up the practice if you don’t want to.

It’s interesting how inspiring this conversation is, when one of the points we explore is how fleeting inspiration can actually be. Living a life full of creativity is something so many of us desire for ourselves, but when we depend on timelines and expectations in life, the rush to be something becomes a roadblock if you let it define what you’re able to accomplish. To live the life we want, we have to understand that flowing in creativity is going to look different for everyone. And finding what works for you requires nurturing and connecting to our inner, authentic truth. Arielle Estoria is a multi-hyphenate creative - a poet, artist, author, and actor - with a passion for making women feel at home in their own bodies. We talk about so many beautiful things, like building a relationship with your intuition, finding your place with creativity, and being discerning of the things you say to yourself.

Continuing to look at how we can build systems and rituals rather than routines and lofty expectations, we’re looking at the part clutter plays in whether we move forward in becoming the person we are becoming. I speak a lot from the I today, sharing several examples of how decluttering my space and creating reset rituals have made an expansive impact on my well-being and ability to show up to myself.

Over the past year or so, I’ve become impassioned with menstrual health and learning all the ways menstruating impacts my well-being. The lack of education or awareness that goes into learning about the menstrual cycle can make us feel like it’s a burden instead of seeing that it’s one of the most powerful, rewarding gifts a person can have. Raven Rose, a Menstrual Health Herbalist of Moon Medicines joins us to discuss all things cyclical living. Get ready to learn so much from Raven - not just about our cycles, but also healing with herbalism and dreamwork, and creating ancestral practices.

As you know, here at BBG we believe wellness is so much more than having a fitness routine (or ritual). It’s just one part of the picture. So when we can start to measure our progress by how good we feel instead of a number on the scale, we’re taking our power back with movement. Before we dive full-on with a new fitness program, let’s get clear on what fitness is actually for, the benefits we’re going after, and how to make movement a joyful part of life. We’re joined by Lauren Leavell, a fitness coach and instructor who focuses on weight neutrality and finding comfort and joy in building a movement practice.

I love listening to this podcast and have found so many products and information that I probably would not have found if not for this podcast. I also enjoyes this podcast and the information that was given but its the first time I felt the host was either preoccupied, tired or just had other things on her mind. It was a little weird at times during paused moments. This guest had lots of energy and positive information. Maybe it was just an off day, we all have those.
