Wow. Christine Gutierrez was the awesome, honest, upfront and intelligent guest I had only dreamed of being able to ask some hard questions of.

She has, for many years, been leading women on retreats and in her practice, find there way back to themselves and overcome the trauma and violation that holds them back.She is also a strong voice when it comes to diversity, inclusion & privilege, and one who strongly believes in standing up for and elevating the voices of those who perhaps don't have the same privilege to be heard.If you're looking for a REAL and POWERFUL conversation talking about all the things...don't go any further. This episodes includes:Understanading Spiritual BypassingThe strange Self-Help Elitism that is occurringIntergenerational Trauma; What it is and how it shows upPrivilege, and how it shows up in many different waysHow we can be curious about all the types of privilege we haveAnd what can you do that with privilege we do haveThe importance of lowering our defenses and embracing curiosityDangers of commercialism in generating popularityHow we can be aware of MarginalizationHow we need to have spaces for people to explore their pure and raw rageUnderstanding that we are all learning, and the journey is far from flawlessHow have we have all, at some time, partaken in that which has caused negative impactThe divide that has been highlighted by recent political climateHow important it is to recognize that we all have something to learn from one anotherWhere being hurt and triggered is often coming fromHow the amount we judge one another is hurting us.

Do you kick yourself because you always seem to take the path of least resistance and wonder if you have any willpower or self-discipline at all? I'm the first to admit that I'm not the most disciplined person I know, but I do a bunch of things that allow me to maximize the impact of my willpower, and support myself in a positive way. In this episode I'm giving you a quick rundown of some of the theory around Willpower (and I'll say, it is very intuitive) and also outlining 4 simple ways you can maximize your self-discipline. Among other things, this episode covers: Why it is important not to waste our willpowerThe power of "bookending" your day with morning and evening routinesHow being preemptive in our thinking allows us to minimize the need to make decisions in the moment, and in turn, rely on willpowerAnd how we're all likely to have less willpower later in the day.

Mastin is a number one best-selling author of Daily Love and Claim Your Power, speaker and Creator of Functional Life Coaching™ for people who are seeking rapid transformation in their lives.He has been featured on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday in one of their highest rated episodes, and recognized as a “thought leader for the next generation” by Oprah Winfrey.

Through his writing, online courses, in-person seminars and international retreats, Mastin has worked with over two million people in over 100 countries around the world.In this episode, we're focusing on what Mastin has been doing lately, and his understanding of the power unhealed trauma is having unconsciously in so many of our lives. He believes that we all have trauma, and that until we look at it and truly heal it, we will never be able to step fully into our power and potential.Specifically we're talking:What Functional Life Coaching™ is?The lack of looking for the root-cause in the current methods of self-help and developmentHow we can be doing all the right things, and still feel like we're not evolving or getting anywhereHow the political divide and uprising around racial inequality and misogyny are actually good thingsAnd why our goal needs to be to make sure we don't pass our suffering on to others.

How do you know it is Intuitive Guidance OR your busy mind coming up with ideas? What constitutes an intuitive-hit or a nudge from the Universe?--- Channel Your Chill, my group program is currently open for registration! Check it out here: www.thrive.how/channelyourchill ---A listener reached out to me recently to ask this, and she is far from the first person to bring it up. I can still remember back when I was sure I didn't have an intuitive bone in my body. Now - 5 years later - I consider myself incredibly tuned in to my inner guidance system. In this episode I'm talking through 4 particular checkpoints that can help you ascertain whether you're in alignment with your inner knowing, or whether you may have got caught in rumination or your overthinking mind. Some of the things covered include: The difference between Green Light intuition and your Warning System intuitionHow intuition is a feeling rather than thinking systemHow intuitive guidance will struggle to be heard over loud thoughtsWhat you can do to tune-inward and tune-out the outside world so you can hear your intuitionHow seeking approval outside of yourself kills intuitive connectionHow impulsivity is not intuition, and how if you are impulsive you can benefit from building in a contemplative practice before jumping to actHow trust is crucial to the processAnd the fineprint when it comes to intuition. What it can and can't do.There are quotes that I have peppered throughout this interview.

Niki is an experienced Reiki Master-Teacher with a really interesting story. She offers both Reiki sessions and also facilitates Reiki practitioner training workshops.After reaching her own rock bottom, struggling with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, she was led to Reiki through a series of synchronistic events. We talk more about her journey and I get my Reiki-for-dummies questions answered.I’ve been interested, yet confused, by the concept of Reiki for the longest time. So long, I felt it was about time I simply had a conversation where I had the chance to ask all of my completely inexperienced questions.And if I’m a little nosy about what on earth this Reiki thing is, then I’m betting a few of you have heard about it too. Or maybe you haven’t? If you have or you haven’t – you’ll still get SO much out of this conversation.Some of the things we cover in this episode include:-      What Reiki actually is-      How energy can be sent through time and space-      How we all have our unique energy signature, which means that two of us can do the same thing very differently-      How the idea of energy can be scary when you come from a religious background, but how it can be thought of as just another label for the holy spirit or gods presence-      How even if you aren’t a Reiki practitioner you can use Reiki energy-      The importance of the “feel good” factor when choosing a practitioner (or a Life Coach for that matter)-      How we can process the hurt and fear we see in the world today-      What sending #loveandlight means from a reiki perspective-      How we have the power to raise or lower our vibrations-      How important water is to our well-being and our we can supercharge our own water to make it even more awesome-      And tones more of courseTo find Niki, you can head to www.awakenspiritualtruths.com or on Instagram@highvelocityspiritualcoach.To find out more about Kate and her programs, head to www.thrive.how

It's another play it again episode! If you want to live a deeply fulfilling life, you can't afford not to dive deeply into yourself. This episode made a splash when I released it the first time, and it's also one of my favs. It's hard hitting goodness. I'm going deep in these 12 min asking you - What Matters to You? What is Your Why?I'm talking about getting to your core using Simon Sinek's idea of Starting with Why.Here's the blog post I reference of mine:https://www.thrive.how/what-are-you-working-for/Linds Reeding - A Short Lesson in Perspectivehttp://www.businessinsider.com/its-not-worth-it-linds-reddings-short-lesson-in-perspective-2012-11The questions I challenge you to answer:What matters most to you?What do you believe in?What would make you so very proud of yourself?Finally, are you living in alignment with these things or getting closer to them?Why? Why are you doing what you do? Why does it matter to you?If you enjoyed this and haven't yet listened to April Seifert's recent episode - #81.

This episode with guest Tahlee Rouillon is full of magic. It was so juicy, and I was so engaged I totally forget to ask her my standard set of questions!The conversation is one part inspiration and one part the geeky and fascinating science behind binaural beats (or Meditones as Tahlee refers to them). In the first half of the conversation we talk in depth about Tahlee's finding her way to her soul's calling, and how she took anything but the direct route. Her journey is inspirational as it is so real, and you can also see the thread of magic that wove through it and brought her right back to where she was supposed to be.The second part is a fascinating discussion about the power certain types of music have to deepen our states and change our brainwaves. Tahlee makes her music, Meditones, which are designed to help people go into slower brainwaves states much more frequently. We also discuss just how meditation can make us feel calmer and more present in our waking hours due to neuroplasticity and our brain's ability to create new pathways.Honestly, I was mesmerized. If you're fascinated by any of the following, don't miss this episode:The idea that if you don't struggle you never build resilienceWhat a Saturn Return is, and how it shows up much like a quarter-life crisis (and how Tahlee experienced hers hard and heavy!)How we can live lives that are just 'fine' or dare to feel true joyHow the biggest adventures in our lives often stir simultaneously feelings of terror and excitement within usAn explanation of the 4 different brainwaves states we experienceBenefits of listening to music at particular frequenciesHow binaural beats or Meditones can induce instant calm, remove anxiety and so much moreHow Meditones are perfect for people who struggle to meditateHow exactly meditation works from a brain perspective and makes us happier humans in our waking hoursAn awesome explanation of neuroplasticityHow it is we get stuck in habits and repeat the same behaviors even when we don't want to. Tahlee mentions her free Meditones which you can access yourself here: http://www.sonesence.com/freemeditones/To find Tahlee: www.sonesence.comInstagram: https://instagram.com/sonesence_music facebook: www.facebook.com/sonesenceTo share the online link to this episode: www.thrive.how/podcast85

I'm playing it again, because this concept is important, yet super simple. Are you reactive or proactive in life? This isn't necessarily a cut and dried question. Depending on what is going on in our lives we will often slip back into functioning very much in a reactive state, even if we're naturally more proactive people. It's about getting stuck on the treadmill of life and forgetting to step back for a second. In this episode I will talk through ways in which you can get yourself out of a rut and start living life from your front foot again.

In this ep. I'm diving into the cliche self-help topic that I have an ABSOLUTE love, yet slight disdain for - Authenticity. I love it, because I believe it is one of the essential keys to living a fulfilling, and wholly happy life. I dislike it, because I think it is thrown around and misunderstood. Today, I'm talking deep authenticity. The stuff when we feel like we're connected and living from our own inner-wisdom. Specifically this ep covers:A definition of Authenticity - have to start with what it actually ISThe pre-requisites to authenticity - how to start becoming more authentic5 attributes that indicate connection with your authentic self.
