S2: EP2 - WHY YOU'RE HAVING AN IDENTITY CRISIS
S2: EP1 - WHO ARE YOU, REALLY?
On this week’s episode, Lindsley and I have a beautiful candid conversation about what it’s like to rebuild our identity after divorce or major life transitions and we explore what happens when we decide to come back to our real selves after years of wearing different masks and pretending to be someone we aren’t.
Join us as we dive deep into this month’s topic of IDENTITY and explore how you can begin to embrace your true self, remember who she is, and let go of the parts that no longer fit.
EP: 76 - 3 STEPS TO CREATING A SACRED SPACE WITH LINDLSEY BROOKS
How would you define yourself?
What masks have you been wearing?
And how far away are you from your authentic self?
As Brene Brown says, “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we are supposed to be and embracing who we are.”
And how we define ourselves is vital to living a life where you are fully alive.
So join me on today's episode where I will help you uncover your current identity and invite you to update any parts that are no longer in alignment with your true self.
EP:75 - DOES YOUR LIFE INSPIRE YOU?
“Whether you realized it or not, your space is affecting your thoughts, feelings, actions and ultimately directing your destiny. It’s either supporting your life goals or distracting you from it… it’s either blocking abundance or it’s allowing it to flow straight to you.“ - Lindsley Brooks
Join me and my special guest on today's show to delve in how your living space is a metaphor for how you live you life. Lindsley will share her tips on how to cultivate a sacred space so that you can transform your life.
EP: 74 - ARE YOU PUNISHING YOURSELF WITH EXERCISE?
Most of our lives are spent in reaction mode. Just trying to check the next thing off the list and get through the day. We moan. We groan. We survive it. But is that really all there is to life?

EP: 73 - BE YOUR OWN MAMA BEAR
So often the association we have with working out is negative. It's usually to make ourselves feel better for the guilt we feel after eating a big meal.

But what if I could teach you how to love moving your body. Not exercising in the way that you used to do that causes shame and anxiety. But a new way. Join me on today's show to find out how to approach movement in a totally new way that will leave you craving to partner with your body.

EP:68 - MAKING PEACE WITH YOUR BELLY
On our journey towards more body love and acceptance, the belly can be a source of deep shame. We've been taught to hate our belly and do anything we can to make it tight, toned and flat. We have forgotten how to value the beautiful feminine rolls, giggle and pouch. And in addition to the cultural pressure, the belly also stores old traumas, abuse, fears, and grief and can have many layers of protection. This part of our body needs deep loving. Carve out 14 minutes to offer your belly some acceptance and love. Mary will guide you into breathing deep into the belly, flooding it with light, and even blessing it and asking forgiveness. At the end, you will feel more at peace with your precious belly.
EP:67 - OVERCOMING DEEP INSECURITIES
When was the last time you looked at your belly and thought.... "I love you!" Probably never, right?! Women are taught from childhood to hate their bellies. Our culture tells us our stomachs need to be flat, toned and tight. And if you are one of the 90% of women who's stomach is the opposite, well you'd better do a quick diet, learn the 5 secrets to a flat stomach, invest in surgery, schedule in a wrap, and just straight hate yourself. I want to teach you how to make peace with the belly you have right now, and end the war against your tummy.

Like you spent 2 hours just ruminating over how everything is just not going according to plan, and instead of telling you you were going to get through it it was just one giant bitch fest?
