Whether you're a stay at home mom (or dad), an entrepreneur, in ministry, or whatever... and you find yourself asking those questions... listen in for some really fun and out of the box tips to turn it all around, find your path back to loving what you do, and watching everything fall into alignment and work out in crazy beautiful ways.

Our body is always giving us signals, like the warning lights of the dash on a car. If we learn to be sensitive to listen to what our body is telling us, we can get clues about the thoughts and beliefs that go against what our spirit knows to be actually true. These signs show us our misalignments with the Truth.This episode gives the basic breakdown of the root chakra, a center of the body that's associated with our thoughts and beliefs about security, safety, family harmony, and support. We give you tools and details on how to listen to and nurture this center of the body.
Depending on what culture and background we all come from, we've developed a very specific understanding and vocabulary about our spirit. As we learn more holistically how to take care of our bodies and add more tools and resources to our mind/body health practices, it's fun to look at the way the spirit is nurtured in each of them. They are all rooted in balancing the mind and emotions, which initiates healing in the physical body and therefore allow the fullest expression of the spirit, our true essence.We also give you an essential oil protocol for opening up freer communication with yourself and your spiritual health, or in other words, calming our mind and body to a point that we are in a position to listen more easily.
The first challenge to be able to experience something outside of your normal realm of natural is to be able to quiet our chattering mind. In this episode we give some examples of essential oils to help your mind let go of the cycle repetitive negative thoughts and get into a state of mindfulness or meditation. Shifting from the natural to the supernatural is just a matter of letting go of the control for a few moments and seeing what comes to the surface.
Spirituality... What is it? What isn't it? What hinders it? What should we avoid?

In this episode, we talk about navigating around the anger, sadness, and confusion that's happening around us and how we are zeroed in on gaining wisdom that encourages others and diffuses the chaos in the air.

In the middle of a pandemic, cultural revolution, and whatever else 2020 brings, are you wondering what's next for you?

Elisa Allen joins us to extend our series on self love and compassion to the process of learning to trust yourself.  So many times overwhelm and anxiety are linked to feeling powerless or that all of the answers to our questions are outside of us, when in reality, we actually already know the next step.  Elisa teaches us a meditation that she uses to get us in the place of hearing from our intuition and trusting what we
Self love and self care is a hot topic these days, but the old view of self care being bubble baths and pedicures is changing.  We are realizing that we all have a right to feel happy, healthy and loved, but life doesn't automatically allow for that.  We have to take some initiative to design our life around that belief.  In this episode, we give you some practical tips for self care and self love that have been working for us on our journey.
Do pedicures, bubble baths, and massages fill up your cup enough to pour love back out onto everyone else in your life to the extent that you envision or want?  Yeah... us either.  In this episode we talk about clearing the way to feel more love, the physical flow of love into the body and what blocks it, and of course, practical steps to making that mind/body connection happen through oils and a new breathing technique we are loving.
We loved this opportunity to chat with therapist, Elisa Allen, about how to curate a life of creativity and joy vs constant productivity, burnout, and exhaustion.  She gives wonderfully practical suggestions that anyone can fit into their daily life to find the flow and rest that everyone needs to be truly healthy and happy.Connect with Elisa at Wildly Curative or @wildly.curative on InstagramFind more resources or connect with Val and Jen at
We all have work to do, but does that work have to exhaust us, leave us unfulfilled and burned out?  Or can we actually reach a place of flow where life seems to be working for us, even before we ask or think about what we need?  Just like a butterfly is intelligently designed to receive guidance through its antenna, we are also wired to receive support, answers, guidance, and information straight from the source of creation.  The only thing we have to do to receive it is to let go of the untruths that block it.  
Is resistance a good thing, a sign that your efforts aren't working, or are they just part of the journey?  We give our perspective on resistance and how to work through fear, anger as you change habits and disrupt your comfort zone.  We also share more specific essential oil advice for overcoming upgrading your habits.
