Can the words you choose truly transform your journey of self-discovery? Join me, as we unravel the impact of language on personal development. In this episode, Wendy shares how substituting specific terms can unlock different dimensions of self-awareness. For instance, why "younger self" might be a more approachable term than "inner child," and how "self-value" can provide a deeper connection than "self-worth." Wendy also delves into the hidden patterns of high achievers, who may conceal peo...

When Sade had a reading done by an astrologer at 19, she was told she would one day open her own spiritual business - which, as a sociology student, she couldn't believe would ever be true.

I've been having a lot of conversations recently with different types of people who are in different circumstances about the topic of understanding who you are, what you like and don't like, what you stand for, who you want to be and how you want to live it. Then, taking all of this knowledge, and assessing how your life currently is and seeing what is in agreement or conflict with how you want to be living. In reality, most people never consider these things and if that's you, it's totally h...

A solo episode today - and I'm back with my usual attitude, of course! A question I want you to ask yourself is "is the self-development work I'm doing actually leading me to develop, change and grow?". If the answer is no - we need to work out why, and that's where today's episode will come in handy. If you're taking in all the information, but being passive about implementing it, then you really need to sit down and think about what's truly going on. And if you're blaming the planets, astro...

I am an advocate for the bare minimum - and that doesn't mean doing the least amount possible, or just trying something once - if you tell me you've completed something, I'll ask you "how many times?"! To me, the bare minimum is the act of taking small, consistent action towards our goals. We can often find that situations feel hard or gritty and we think that means that things aren't "right", when really, we need someone to come and poke us in the face to point out that things are meant to b...
