Curiosity & Consciousness Podcast

The intention of this podcast is to help us to open our minds, get curious about ourselves and begin to take radical responsibility for our lives. Only by continually showing up for ourselves, can we release what no longer serves us and raise our vibration and consciousness levels. We have the power to consciously create our lives but we need to 'wake up' to this fact before we can begin the process.
Believe it or not, life is always happening for us. Everything serves a purpose but only by bringing a new level of awareness or perspective, can the insights and truths be revealed to us.
We're more than just this physical, mental and emotional body. Our essence is as an energetic being and we operate on a much higher vibrational level. Hopefully some of these conversations will help you to connect more to your own inner truth, raise your consciousness and notice the support of the universe which is available to all of us.
It is my experience that when we are disconnected from our true selves, we can never fully feel alive, authentic and live in the present moment.
Hopefully the conversations will help us to begin to surrender, trust and gain new insights and perspectives on our lives. It is a process and a unique journey for each of us, so my invitation to you is to get curious and open up to the possibility that you are being supported and guided every step of the way! I'm excited for the conversations that will take place on this platform and I welcome you along on the journey!
"The way out, is to go within".

This week I share a powerful experience from a 'temazcal' which is a pre-hispanic indigenous type of sweat lodge or sauna native to México & Central America. This is a ceremony that was used to cleanse the mind, body and soul. It lasts about 3 hours and it's done in deep reverence to Mother Earth, the fire spirits & elementals. It was torturous at times, but I also experienced complete surrender where I was no longer consumed by the intensity, the heat, the pain etc & I could BE with it all. We all have the power to make this shift, no matter what we are facing and it all comes down to our thoughts. Listen to hear more.

My guest this week is Tom Paladino. Tom is a scalar energy researcher based in Florida. Scalar energy is the fundamental life force found everywhere in the world, space and universe. It originates from the sun and stars. Chi, prana, OM, mana, life force, pyramid energy or zero-point energy are synonymous terms for scalar energy. He theorized that all energy in the universe initiates as scalar energy; and that the sun of our solar system and the stars of the universe are the points of origin, “the storehouses,” for scalar energy. He further theorized that scalar energy is instructive energy, as the entire universe is instructed by this Divine Essence. Subsequently, all spiritual, cognitive, emotional and physical action in the universe is initiated and maintained by scalar energy instructions. Scalar energy provides order in the universe.

In this episode, I share why building self-approval from within and having our own back no matter what, is key to living a happy, fulfilled life. If we don't know our true value, we will forever allow others to determine it for us (which means a rocky ride!). To reject or abandon ourselves, is a pain far greater than being rejected. And building our sense of self-worth and approval on externals, is building on shaky ground.
