    Katrina shares how we go through 500 changes when pregnant and when we have a newborn! Why are we SO concerned with bouncing back? Let's go forward!

  • Happy Monday Everyone! 

    Hope everyone's weekend was a beautiful one whatever you did!

    Today we switch gears from the spiritual world to the Fashion World!

    Covid or no Covid, the show must go on!

    Today Ali sits down with Michael Kuluva, celebrity designer of Tumbler and Tipsy to talk virtual fashion during a pandemic.

    Michael shares all about himself, his journey as a designer and this years Spring/Summer 2021 inspiration of cozy and safe at home in the Newest Normal collection!

    Michael talks trends for the year and what's to be seen in his collection, pivoting to a virtual fashion show and what to expect.

    Michael also shares with Ali his sponsor Creaky Joints(R) working with him to bring  his vision and mission to life to incorporate his own disease and struggle of living with Rheumatoid Arthritis. 

    Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes pain, stiffness, swelling and loss of function in the joints throughout the body, but typically the small joints of the hands and feet. RA can strike at any age and, if left untreated, can cause joint damage and even permanent joint destruction or harm to the body’s organs. RA is an autoimmune disease that is treated typically by a specialist called a rheumatologist. Read more about managing RA in "Raising the Voice of Patients: A Patient's Guide to Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis," available for free download at http://creakyjoints.org/patientguidelines.

    CreakyJoints is a digital community for millions of arthritis patients and caregivers worldwide who seek education, support, advocacy, and patient-centered research. www.CreakyJoints.org

    Michael and Ali talk The Newest Normal and how Michael continues to innovate, filling The Newest Normal with comfortable clothing that is great for lounging around in, but stands out from the crowd with high volume colors and glam touches that will make the wearer feel confident.

     Michael’s clothing is easy to put on and many of the collection pieces will have hand-painted, glow-in the-dark details thoughtfully placed to emphasize where people living with arthritis experience pain – on the inside and out. A really creative way to express his mission and bring awareness.

    Michael and Ali talk about the amazing details of the shoes, music and all! How it all came together.

    Ali and Michael share their fashion history and working together in styling celebs and the uniqueness of Tumbler and Tipsy!

    Michael talks showing up looking fabulous front row from your chic bedroom and how to join the show!

    Tune in for some fun fashion talk and talking fashion week during a pandemic. Who doesn't want a front row seat?!

  • Happy Friday! Are you Awake?! No really, today we get Deep. Today we talk truly about each of us.  Our spiritual journey, our Truth and Our Ascension.

    We are feeling all the FEELINGS today and Opening UP!

    Meet Lorie Ladd, this incredible woman and Ascension teacher who speaks to us today about creating our own reality and finding our own truth.

    Lorie and Ali connected on social media when Ali was having trouble with how heavy the world was when the pandemic started and Lorie was a light!

    Lorie shares her journey and how she knew at age 13 she was destined for this work, but she didn't dive in till 5 years ago, then boom COVID hit and Lorie really stepped into her work.

    Lorie talks about consciousness, our resonance, the world itself, programming and everything that we are living and going through.

    Lorie shares how we all look to the external, not to ourselves and our intuition.

    Lorie shares how in this time of COVID how we are learning so much about ourselves in this time and being prepared for what's to come.

    Covid has forced us to learn how to be present again, learn a way new of life, sovereignty and making choices.

    Lorie walks us through what is happening in the world right now on an energetic level.

    Lorie and Ali talk programming, 3D Dimension of the world, being in the fog.

    Lorie breaks down what 3D is, that we've been living in for thousands of years: control, fear, mind control, divide

    Lorie explains our truths, what we are shifting too, stepping out of the fog, stepping away from the narrative.

    Lorie also shares how our consciousness is changing and ascending, higher states of frequency, how our bodies are actually shifting!

    Are you Awake Yet?! Lorie explains in this detailed episode and how we Ascend as individuals and Actually Allow Us To Feel.

    See the bigger picture, from an energetic perspective.... welcome to 5D. Allow yourself to be you & understand you.

    Its all consciousness, it's all Energy! We are on a trajectory to our highest good! Come listen and Find Your Resonance.

    Lori reminds us: The Best is Yet To Come, This Time is Actually A Gift.

  • Happy Friday loves!! Hope everyone is doing well, sending love! Let’s all listen in intently as we find our breathe together today. Perfect way to start the weekend vibes! Today Ali sits down with Tanya Saunders to find her breathe and learn about breathe work and her moon cycle. Tanya is a Certified Pause Breathe work Facilitator and teaches women how to connect to their breathe and breathe!! Tanya explains how important it is to drop into our bodies and follow the moon cycle when it comes to our emotions, hormones, and every day life. She helps women with energy self-care rituals to reconnect with their bodies by aligning with the moon cycle to discover her dharma. Ali and Tanya discuss the importance of the moon cycle and how every single one is different depending if new moon or full. Tanya explains to Ali how just like our hormones are 28 day cycle, so is the moon. It’s Tanya’s mission to guide women to nourish their bodies to attract what they want in life and to transform into the highest version of themselves within a 28 day energy self-care ritual. A life with passion and purpose does not have to come with hustle, but from a place of intuition, intention, love, trust and joy. Ali and Tanya talk about connecting to their higher selves and the spiritual work that happens as well in these beautiful sessions with Tanya. Ali asks Tanya a little bit about astrology, the moon, and our bodies all together and how it works when it comes to connecting to our breathe. Tanya shares with Ali that her practice and sessions are a blend of her own knowledge in physiology, wellness, positive psychology, and her love of spirituality and astrology to craft every session and how that will look different for every woman when they truly drop into their bodies and connect to that breathe. Tanya talks about how she practices this practice herself every day with her husband and 3 kids while running her business. Tanya and Ali talk about intuition as well and what that feels like when you get there in life. Tanya also shares a cool story about her first real intuition and how she followed it! If you’re looking for a wholer version of you, or a way to really connect to your body and your higher self, then tune in! “My emotions move through cycles and connect me to my truth”.

    Andy also gets deep and shares how our ancestors had all this right and then we screwed it all up! Haha! No but really like we went from a society that didn't have any of this technology or blue light to it massively being in our faces and consuming us, and it's a problem for our health and mind!

    Andy shares simple ways to improve your light health & hygiene, digital strain, and seriously just everything we need to know with Blue light!

  • It's Friday everyone! Today, trigger warning, this episode it's a heavy one but an important one!! 

    Ali has felt called to this space in her heart and has been getting LOUD about it on her social media platforms, as we are sure you have seen.

    Today Ali had the honor to sit down with the Hero and The Man behind, OUR RESCUE.

    What is OUR RESCUE?! It is Operation Underground Railroad, a nonprofit that fights against child sex slavery and Tim Ballard is the founder and CEO.  

    Tim Ballard began his career with the CIA and then spent over a decade working as a Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security where he was deployed as an undercover operative. He has worked every type of case imaginable in the fight to dismantle child trafficking rings. He has worked undercover in the United States and in multiple foreign countries to infiltrate child trafficking organizations.  

    In 2013, Ballard and a team of former government operatives left their careers to go about the work of saving children as a private foundation.

    Ballard has briefed the President of the United States and other cabinet members on issues of child trafficking.  He has also testified before the US House and Senate on several occasions. In 2019 he was appointed by the President to chair the White House Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking!!

    Ballard has been featured on many national news outlets to discuss his efforts to combat child trafficking.

    Today Ali and Tim sit down to discuss the realness of child and human trafficking, what's going on in our world and the USA!

    Tim and Ali discuss the pain and heartbreak and horror of what trafficking is and all the types of slavery these children and people go through.

    Tim shares his heart and his mission of starting OUR Rescue and why he left his government job to do the unimaginable. 

    Tim educates us on safety and how to be aware for our own children and others.

    Tim gives us a glimpse of some of his missions and rescues that have happened in his career.

    Tim shares hard stats and facts about the hundreds of thousands of children and millions of people that go missing into this sick business every year.

    That's right, it's the #1 business for making money in our world, SEX TRAFFICKING! 

    Ali and Tim also discuss his newest project that will be available for the public to watch and see soon, Sound of Freedom.

    Today let us listen with our hearts, open our minds, and truly feel our souls as we go deep into this heavy topic and reality that's happening all around us.

    Ignorance is not bliss, and we all need to Wake UP for the children! LETS GET LOUD!!

  • Happy Monday loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to kick a** this week!

    This conversation has Ali all kinds of fired up this Monday!! 

    Ali has had so many questions about her VBAC and how it happened, what advice she has, and how it's even possible!

    Ali wanted to bring it back to the first person who told her, YOU CAN HAVE A VBAC.

    Who else has been told "Once a Cesarean, Always a Cesarean"

    Today Ali sits down with Dr.Elliot Berlin to have an unbiased conversation about advocating for a VBAC and his line of work.

    Dr.Berlin shares his real raw story how he went from the medical world to the holistic world and his own personal journey within that.

    Ali and Dr.Berlin talk pregnancy, advocacy for yourself as a patient, finding the right provider and more.

    Preventive care vs reaction.

    Dr.Berlin shares tips of how to approach your pregnancy or even before you get pregnant and how that can change your outcome.

    If you're curious about a VBAC or even how to prep your body with getting pregnant, potentially changing your birth story the next time around, or just want to learn how to be an ADVOCATE for yourself, tune in!
