In this episode, we invited our FAVOURITE Functional Medicine Practitioner to speak about Menstrual Cycles and how it affects our girls and young women at Exam time. Welcome back to the 'studio', Elizabeth Sergeant!This conversation is one we need to have and although Liz is doing so much work and big changes are coming from her alone, we are beginning to see how our awareness and understanding AND campaigning can have a bigger impact.Liz gave us an incredible insight into what happens with cycles and young women, their cycles still finding their groove and the difficulties to perform that they face.  Should schools make allowances for this, specifically at crucial times like exams?Fascinatingly, Liz also shared that the US Women's Soccer team actually train and perform AROUND their cycles within the team and they have an advantage over their competitors because of this!OMG this is such an interesting episode. We learned so much about our bodies just from this one chat. Imagine if we are able to empower our young women to connect with their bodies and cycles and not just get on with it, what a difference it would make to them as individuals but also to society and success. Take control over your life.Come join us!Want to connect?Elizabeth Sergeant!Facebook: https://www.wellnourishedclub.comPaula The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: Wild Roads!Instagram: written and performed by Simon Virgona.

Are there limitations on being limitless? Where are all the idea's coming from? Can we be the first to think of something? Does it even matter? An interesting conversation about copying vs being inspired. Here, we dive into the different perspectives and the lines crossed. It sucks to be copied and it sucks to be accused of copying. Let's unpack.We talk about content creation, articulation, visuals, messaging, how we connect and are drawn to certain people and why we don't even realise we are very similar. Is it the collective consciousness in the Entrepreneurial and artists world? Or are we just regurgitating other people's genius and trying to go viral on Social Media with their content? So many questions and beliefs... but when it all comes down to it, we believe we are here to make an impact on the world and therefore, we believe it is a gift for our content to be so inspiring that it is shared, not word for word copied, but shared, and we totally encourage people to put their own spin on it. It's the whole point.Hit the play button and join us for this cool episode.Want to connect?Paula The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: written and performed by Simon Virgona.

Its All Risky!

Its All Risky!


Doing things that feel risky! This episode was inspired by a video that Paula watched where an older lady expressed her regrets about living her life fearful of doing things and that she hadn't taken enough risks.We speak about putting life into our living, thinking we have time and the loss of time, being stuck in stuck-ness and how we navigate our way through the processing of what to choose. We aren't guaranteed any time on the planet, therefore, are we fully experiencing life while we are on it, the emotions, the things versus trying to avoid it.Trusting ourselves and our intuition has given us a way of moving our needles and not stopping ourselves from doing what we desire based on someone else's perception.  The limitations exist on the inside and when we understand ourselves a little better, we can create a life working with our responsibilities and experience joy in this one wild life...This is a great episode to dive into and it may shift something inside and help you make a decision you have been wanting to make.PS Here's the link to Paula's vlog she mentioned on the episode. It's beautiful...go watch.. join us!Want to connect?Paula The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: written and performed by Simon Virgona.
Julie Tenner, Author of the Flowers and Honey, a book and work that has changed our lives, opened us up to the most magical way of living our best life with the person we love.Julie's work is about Tantric philosophies of two energetic polarities we all have with in us as humans beings and how harnessing which energy we want to use and how important if this in power pack the experience we want to love. Her motivation - 'I don't want monogamy to be a place where sex life and humans go to die!' 'Taking control and empower to create what we are seeking with the person we long to love have that with'. Wanting more doesn't mean what you have is sh*t. That statement hit us profoundly. We are learning to give what we think we are not getting and watching it come back to us tenfold. This work of understanding the Masculine and Feminine energies with our being and our work, relationships... how we do life, moves us to a place of self compassion, deeper understanding and connection of others and experiencing life liberated, free and moving in the direction we want to be moving in. If you aren't happy where you are you can change it.To know Julie Tenner is to love her! The woman who walks her walk and talks her talk to show us how completely blissful our life can be, in a world where we have lost our way a little and have a messy relationship with wanting more, digging our heels in places that do not serve us.Julie teaches us flow, feeling, receiving, all the things that can give feminine core beings their power back while truly healing and leading from our desires. This woman's voice and this conversation will have you wanting more. Her brilliance is a gift to this world and I know you will love this episode like we do.Check out the links to purchase the book 'Flowers and Honey' and to dive more into Julie's work.Come join us!Want to connect?Julie Tenner!Facebook: the links: The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: written and performed by Simon Virgona.
In this episode we talk about one of our favourite topics...the masculine and feminine energies, we love diving into this. Disclaimer; we are still learning on this journey and on this episode we are talking about feminine core beings and masculine core beings. Two books we have both read changed our perspectives. The Queens Code by Allison Armstrong and Flowers and Honey by Julie Tenner were instrumental in showing us how we all have a sliding scale of both within all of us and in any dynamic of a relationship we all have polarities that can be just as misunderstood as it is supported.Fuelling life force energy, having deeper connection and magnetism, we actually go through alot in this episode and we have only touched the surface.Understanding it in our relationships has been life-changing!Come join us!Want to connect?Paula The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: written and performed by Simon Virgona.

This weeks episode we talk about something that seems crazy...what Shonah did many years ago when she travelled Australia in a small 1984 Ford Laser. No Camper or Caravan, no 4WD... just a buzz box (Aussie slang for small runaround car) that she lived in and yep there was off road adventures. Losing her wallet which meant back then, losing access to money. Listen to how she travelled from one end of Australia to the other with not much more than change.Going down memory lane and realising the skills we have now because of the era we adventured in.PS...the episode goes south... so funny.Want to connect?https://www.thewildroads.comPaula The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: written and performed by Simon Virgona.
Sharing how far we've come in 12 months since our first episode was recorded. How we have shifted our perceptions, our mental clarity with how we do business, how we share our work with the world.We talk about not having enough value or being enough for people to have a transformation or have an impact and what changed that.We have learned to take the pressure off, we have surrendered to seeing the depth and embraced all the learnings we have explored.  We have insight  into our language, the words we avoided and how we now wear them as part of our identity.If you are feeling like you are stuck in how you feel your work impacts the world...this is a great episode to tap into.  The holding of the intention of the transformation and the HOW gets to reveal itself.'The journey's the whole point' - PaulaWant to connect?https://www.thewildroads.comPaula The Ivy!Facebook: Lee!Facebook: written and performed by Simon Virgona.
