Curiosity & Consciousness Podcast

The intention of this podcast is to help you to open your mind, get curious about yourself and take radical responsibility for your life. Through introspection and self-inquiry you can connect to your authentic truth and raise your vibration and consciousness levels. You have the power to consciously co-create your life but you need to 'wake up' first.
You're more than just this physical, mental and emotional body. Your essence is as an energetic, divine, spiritual being that is connected to the one consciousness.
It has been my experience that when we are disconnected from our true essence, we cannot feel fully joyful, fulfilled, connected or present.
I'm your host, Karen Maloney, an INSIDE OUT Coach for Mindset & Self-Belief, Silent Counselling Practitioner & Energy Therapist. I help you to believe in yourself & master your mind & body from the inside out.
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". / @karenmaloney_

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. 
Victoria Volk is my guest this week. Being a 30+ year griever, Victoria Volk has navigated loss the majority of her life. She's found her purpose in her pain, and today helps other grievers move beyond loss as an Advanced Certified Grief Recovery Specialist both in-person and online. She's also a Reiki Master, Self-Published Author, and hosts her own podcast, Grieving Voices, which is available on all platforms. When she's not working her day job in crop insurance, or side-hustling in her business, The Unleashed Heart, you can find her enjoying quiet living with her husband, 3 kids, and one pooch in rural ND.
The premise of today's episode is about the quality of the questions you ask yourelf, and how to ask better questions. We hold all the power, but we've forgotten! 
Well after SO long, I'm feeling the urge to get back to recording. This episode's will be solocasts for the moment & starting off I'm sharing about a retreat I was at recently in México, where I had a deep healing around the masculine energy. This episodes won't be as polished, you may hear different background sounds but I hope you get something from them all the same. Check out my Breathwork Community & website:
