The journey of awakening is often a messy process. Stepping into our higher self, healing, connecting to our higher consciousness and developing our intuitive and trust skills can feel chaotic, energizing, scary, thrilling, confusing and overall like a roller coaster. In this conversation, Leah and Phill talk about the journey to awakening with the true stories of Phill from his new book, Letting Glow. We discuss:mediumshiphow raising our frequency can feel like a mental breakdealing with griefhow to trust your intuition and develop 6th sense capabilitieswhat it's like seeing ghosts and energy in the spirit worldPhill Webster is an author, actor, and developing medium. After living abroad and traveling the world for twenty years, he returned to his native England in 2017 and embarked on an acting career. Most notably, he has worked with people such as Elle Fanning, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Hardy, and Benedict Cumberbatch, to name a few. At the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic, an unexplained event, coupled with a devastating loss, sent him down a completely different path forever.These events prompted a complete life review, and an exploration into the mystical, which culminated in the Amazon top of the charts book ‘Letting Glow’, and its soon to be released sequel, ‘Glowing Deeper’. In Book One, he documents his journey into mediumship, and sets out to de-mystify the mystical, making the unfolding and development of psychic senses accessible to us all. ‘Letting Glow’ delves headfirst into how we can connect with our highest states of intuition, manifest lives of purpose, realign the connection between our thoughts, consciousness, and our authentic selves, and ultimately, searches for proof that we survive physical death.

We are covering one of the most popular topics of the human condition - relationships - with trauma-informed polarity coach, David Lea and Leah Guy. David and Leah dive into the definitions of masculine and feminine, the characteristics of each in our daily lives and how we show up to ourselves and one another in relationships. Being trauma-informed means recognizing that we each carry trauma memory and are in the process of healing, yet with awareness and application we can shift the way our energy is received by others and the impact that has on relationships.This is not a gender issue, it is an energy issue and everyone has a dominant energy or one they identify more strongly with and when we come to relationships out of that alignment, we can create stress and disharmony for all.David is a coach, speaker and teacher and, alongside his life partner, Paige, has created a foundational program called Daring Deeply.

It's the end of the year and while many people are considering their New Year plans, I want to invite you to consider the practice of resiliency in our spiritual journey.Becoming more resilient is something we can foster in our lives at any age. It's not just the ability to be strong or brave in the face of uncertainty or life's challenges, but the ability to come back to self, to your center and trust your mind and body to process what is necessary so that we can continue. It's a great skill, and one that is necessary for all of us to move through life with more authenticity and grace.Leah discusses this important topic as a way to invite us to look at our self-commitments this year, and to help secure within the anchor that we so desperately need in times of stress. Many blessings to each of you, this day and this new year and beyond.

Leah and Buddhist teacher, Deborah Eden Tull share an enlightening conversation about the darkness that may bring hope to any listener. Darkness is deeply misunderstood in today’s world; yet it offers powerful medicine, serenity, strength, healing, and regeneration. All insight, vision, creativity, and revelation arise from darkness. It is through learning to stay present and meet the dark with curiosity rather than judgment that we connect to an unwavering light within. Welcoming darkness with curiosity, rather than fear or judgment, enables us to access our innate capacity for compassion and collective healing. Dharma teacher, shamanic practitioner, and deep ecologist Deborah Eden Tull addresses the spiritual, ecological, psychological, and interpersonal ramifications of our bias towards light.  Eden is an engaged dharma teacher, spiritual activist, author, and sustainability educator, who teaches dharma intertwined with post-patriarchal thought and practices, resting upon a lived knowledge of our unity with the more than human world. She trained for seven and a half years as a Buddhist monk at a silent Zen monastery and has taught engaged meditation for over 20 years. Eden has lived in sustainable communities and as an organic gardener/farmer for decades and celebrates the essential wisdom of nature.

Nelson notes that we can ask direct questions and receive answers from the subconscious mind.
