Especially because this is a topic I think about often and love discussing. The idea that we are in full control of our thoughts and feelings is not entirely accurate nor is it something we should buy into without questioning...BUT, when you convince yourself that EVERYTHING is out of your control, and then go through life on autopilot - it’ll be very difficult for you to cultivate emotional intelligence and emotional maturity.So what does the middle ground look like?

'Fake it till you make it' has to be one of the worst widely accepted mantras I've heard in my adult life. This approach to life messes with our sense of self (identity) more than we might realise. It even perpetuates things like imposter syndrome.

Who am I? What do I believe in? What do I want to do? Do I even agree with this anymore? Those are just a few of the common questions that pull at us when we're questioning our identity and the roles we play in the world. In this gem-filled episode we'll be exploring what identity is, what an identity CRISIS is, how it presents itself in your life, why I believe we're ALL experiencing it as a collective, how you can identify whether this is something you're actually going through- and what you can do about it.This one was F**KING GOOD! ⁣I appreciate your time and attention, if you found this valuable - be sure to leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this podcast with your loved ones, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣You can also connect with me directly over on Instagram, I'd love to continue the conversation with you - @africabrooke or you can email me at hello@africabrooke.com with subject line 'Beyond the Self'.

Self-sabotage is a F**KER!!!!! This we know...but we don't always do it because we hate ourselves.

Perfectionism is something a lot of us experience. It's something many of us OVER-IDENTIFY with. It's something we sometimes see as a 'positive' thing despite it causing a lot of stress, procrastination, unfinished projects, self-criticism, over-analysing, personal/professional dissatisfaction.⁣⁣In this episode I break down what perfectionism is, where it stems from, how to move away from it, what you can start to cultivate instead - and I also give you some practical steps you can start to integrate into your daily life.⁣⁣I appreciate your time and attention, if you found this valuable - be sure to leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this podcast with your loved ones, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.

Is this REAL!? Is Africa really back with another podcast episode. YES SHE F**KING IS! In this deliciously expansive comeback episode we are diving into all things TOXIC BEHAVIOURS.⁣⁣I must stress that finding out you have ‘toxic’ tendencies that are affecting you and those around you doesn’t mean you’re damaged or lesser, it just means there’s some SERIOUS inner work to do on your part...⁣⁣⁣Have you ever had to accept that you were the toxic potato at any point in life? Or is that where you’re at right now? Listen to this wisdom, soak it in, take what resonates, and decide the next steps step you'll take to make shifts in your life.⁣⁣I appreciate your time and attention, if you found this valuable - be sure to leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share it with your loved ones, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.

Pesky negative thoughts! Something we ALL experience, but how we do actually manage them and stop being slaves to each mindset gremlin that decides to pop up?

WHEW! That's best way to describe Episode 3 of the podcast. I explored why 'choosing ourselves' doesn't always feel great and addressed how this happens. When it comes to asserting and exercising our boundaries, owning our worth, liberating ourselves openly - it can feel very unsafe. But why is this, and what can we do about it? This episode explores of all that and more.

In this episode (recorded in my closet under the Full Flower Moon) I explored all things BELIEFS, and we went beyond the surface.⁣⁣What is a belief? What are LIMITING beliefs? How are beliefs formed? How can you release them?⁣⁣Do limiting beliefs mean there's something wrong with you? Will you always have them? I answered all of these questions, and more.⁣⁣I also offered a practical 4 step process which I use in my personal practice, and with my clients.

In this introductory episode, I delved into the reason why we find it difficult to make long-lasting changes in our habits and behaviour - it turns out we've been focusing on the wrong thing! You'll love this one, and it will give you an idea of what you can expect from me in this glorious space. Get comfortable, and be sure to bring your ego along.
