Welcome to this week's episode of the Ambitious Introvert. Something I’ve learnt in my own personal development and self discovery journey is that there are so many different ways that we can understand ourselves. The more awareness and understanding that we heave helps us to better understand ourselves and give ourselves permission to be exactly who we are. With this said, I am a big fan and proponent of using numerology in life and business. So when I came across Jo Soley, owner of Bizology, I knew that I had to have her on the podcast. Today she’ll be sharing more about the practice and doing a live reading of my own numbers, enjoy!Jo and I discuss:How learning numerology helped Jo understand herself better and ignite her passion to help others A live session of my numerology reading and how I’m living in alignmentThe history of numerology and how it can show us who we are on a deeper levelHaving the confidence to own your woo, especially with those who don’t understandThe non-monetary results and changes Jo’s clients have seenVisit this episode's blog post here: Connect with Emma-Louise on Instagram: @emmalouparkesConnect with Jo on Instagram: @josoleybizology

Today I’m going to talk less about business and more about the nervous system. Back in 2012 I was diagnosed with an auto-immune response to many different foods, so I began to look into different practices to help balance my nervous system.

I hope they help you as much as they’ve helped me! Topics DiscussedBreaking down blue light and how it can interrupt our sleep patternsHow constant noise can wear down your nervous systemWhy I love my weighted blanketNon-physical (and free) things you can do to protect your nervous systemThe importance of subtle energy and how it can affect you day to dayVisit this episode's blog post here: with Emma-Louise on Instagram: @emmalouparkes
