I am interested in shining a spotlight on the next generation of  light workers and leaders who are putting themselves out there to help people. Healers who’ve had their own dark night of the soul experience that they use to help others make their way back to the light. Today I’m interviewing one of those amazing women, Cassandra Bodzak, who is a meditation and wellness teacher as well as a speaker and an author. I wanted to have her on the show because I was interested in her take on meditation and how she’s bringing it to this younger generation of people.

Mean Girls

Mean Girls

  I want you to think back to your middle school days: were you a mean girl? Or were you a victim of a mean girl? In school there’s a pecking order to popularity and power. I have so many clients who come to me full of regret for the way they acted towards other girls in their youth or still carrying wounds from their childhood experiences with bullies. For these experiences to change, the system needs to change. We need early intervention and guidelines for a new way of being. We need tools and strategies that will teach young girls how to be supportive of each other, how to communicate with each other in a healthy way, and how to be real friends. Support your Sisters by Standing up to Bullies #SaySomething #TellSomeone via @Terri_Cole {CLICK TO TWEET} This leads me to my amazing guest on today’s episode of Hello Freedom, Emily Greener. Emily heads up a powerful organization   I Am That Girl, who teaches girls on five continents to love, express, and be who they are. Their vision is that a girl’s physical, emotional, and mental well being are all rooted in her self worth. I Am That Girl is helping girls transform their self doubt into self love. They teach girls how to connect with each other in healthy ways. Emily leads with her own vulnerability. It’s her passion for people that helps her create an impact on these girls, and she is walking the talk. She leads by example. Healthy girls become powerful women doing good work in the world. We have the power to...

18 Meggan Watterson – How to Love Yourself (And Sometimes Other People)

Today we’re talking about love: loving yourself, and how that love can help you love others. And to help me talk about it, I’m bringing in a leader in the field of feminine divine and spirituality, Meggan Watterson. I first met Meggan at her first Reveal conference, where she told her incredible story about her studies, her pilgrimage to sites of the divine feminine, and her understanding of herself as a spiritual misfit. Meggan’s new book, How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) was written with her co-author Lodro Rinzler, and is packed full of spiritual advice for modern love and relationships. The content is so accessible, and we share a lot of the same beliefs about how self love is the path to true love. I think you’ll love our conversation all about loving yourself and others. Thanks for listening in.

Creating Love that Lasts

Creating Love that Lasts

Do you believe you are worthy of your own time? Love? Money? Do you dress up for no other reason than because it makes you feel good? Do you treat yourself with the love, care and respect that you do with other people in your life? Whether you are in a relationship or looking for love, most of you know, somewhere down deep, that self love is the path to true love. You know the most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself. And you also know that you can’t love anyone else if you don’t authentically love yourself. Unfortunately this knowing isn’t always evident in your thoughts and behavior. For most people there is a belief that without a romantic partner they are incomplete. (For those of you in a relationship feeling complete may be dependent on your partner doing and saying exactly the right thing to make you feel good.) Though this idea that happiness is dependent on someone else is a surefire way to give away your power, your potential and your joy. It’s not always easy, and you may feel even a bit silly, doing things like buying yourself flowers, treating yourself to the movies or watching a sunset alone. However, these simple acts of love towards yourself are the kind of action steps that can bring you the fulfillment, happiness and LOVE you’ve been searching for that can only be found within you. It’s in taking responsibility for the amount of love that you create and allow in your life the draws more love closer to you. Yes, it really can be that simple. I can...
