Leena Lemos talks to me about yearning for a spiritual connection.  She felt this most profoundly when she was  pregnant and after the birth of her baby girl.  She kept wondering why women were continually skirting the real issues of how we are feeling and what motherhood  is doing to us on a soul level.On her quest for a more profound relationship with herself and others she started writing letters to her unborn child, here we see who she is and how she struggles as we all do with identity and love and her own spirituality.We discuss how important it is to live authentically and what it means to live a life as a spiritual person. website: www.houseofenlightenedhood.comBook: www.dearlunawilde.com Instagram: www.instagram.com/leenalemos www.instagram.com/enlightenedhood

Will she?  What would it be like to have a penis, is peeing standing up all it's cracked up to be?Seriously.... WTFI'm by no means perfect but does it make me a bad person to totally dislike my step kids? Every day I get a message from my 16-year-old stepdaughter telling me to kill myself and I need to be dead. My 19-year-old stepdaughter talks trash about me to everyone I know and even abused my younger son. I've had my clothes ripped up or stolen. My glasses were broken on purpose. My oldest stepsons 25 and 26 talk trash about me and the 26-year-old actually pinned me to the wall by my throat saying the devil made him do it. I'm at a loss my husband says to just delete the messages then when I mention them he says let me guess you can't prove it lol.. "well I didn't delete them and saved every one of them". Now yesterday I was at work (I work for the city outside) and the 19-year-old and 25 years old drove past me and threw a rock at me hitting me in the back while screaming obscenities. I feel bad for hating them so much but not sure how much further this should be allowed to go. No one but my family is on my side. What should I do?? https//www.noneofourbusinesspod.comYouTube @None of Our Business PodcastInstagram @itsreallynoneofourbusinesspodFacebook @None.Of.Our.Business.Pod

Abe and I talk about living an authentic life.Sometimes we all struggle with finding out what our purpose is, what it is we really want. When you are living in your purpose you should feel empowered, and content. When you are not living your life authentically you feel like there is something amiss.   As North American's we are often told of the things that will make us happy: the car,  the house, the career.  So what happens when we have those things yet we still feel an emptiness.  Usually, this is when your life blows up.  Me and Abe talk about different examples in our own lives of how not being in alignment with our purpose creates anxiety and stress in the mind and body.  It is okay not to know where you are going.  It is so important to understand that the journey is what is important.If you want to get a hold of Abe here's his website:https://www.ibrahimsharkas.comFeel free to reach out to Abe,  with his Daily Dose of Love He will send you daily texts and daily thoughts 202-918-33271–800–273–8255The Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.
A nurse for 22 years with specialties in Intensive Care, Trauma, and Flight Nursing, Karen DiMarco  had an experience in 2011 that she describes as “a coming home.”  Within weeks of that profound moment  – on the floor of a closet in a puddle of snot and tears –  her mental and physical illnesses, and a 26-year history of eating disorders, melted away.Since then, she has been a catalyst for transforming the way we deliver and conceive of health care and wellbeing. Put simply, the mind and body are not disconnected, and when misunderstandings of the mind are healed, there is a profound healing effect on the body.Karen is a total geek about science, and the connection between the mind and the body.  Her insatiable appetite for all things spiritual and biological, and her ability to communicate her understanding in a scientific, sometimes hilarious, and always easy-to-understand way, is what makes her both a total weirdo and incredibly impactful as a healthcare visionary and transformational coach.Work with Karen:1:1 Transformational Coaching Packages – I used to wish I just had someone like me to talk to… except without all of my drama and baggage, so I could finally get some clarity, freedom, and peace-of-mind.
