    #70: Laura Mahony Reads Em's Tarot, Sitting in the Shit(Hibernation anyone?)

    Meathead Hippie starstarstarstarstar

    Laura Mahony‘s spiritual journey began at a young age and has since then grown into fruition. Past experiences of numbness and feelings of unworthiness led Laura to a defining moment in her life as she leaned into her own intuition. “I decided it was time to sit in my shit. I felt all of my feelings.” In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Laura talks about opening up the world of tarot cards and illuminating the energy that guides us through some of life’s most questionable and challenging moments. The process of tarot card reading starts with meditating and becoming the boss of your own mind. We must allow ourselves to settle in a parasympathetic state in order to listen to the answers our hearts are trying to tell us. Laura also talks about manifesting your highest energy and learning how to receive life’s blessings without feeling like it has to be earned. We must not block the flow between giving and receiving… “Accessing self-love is an expansive energy.”

    #65 with Katie Garces: The Dark Moon, Intuitive Eating, and Breaking the Dieting Cycle

    Meathead Hippie starstarstarstarstar

    Katie Garces is leading others towards “becoming the best versions of themselves, physically, nutritionally, spiritually and emotionally.” In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Em and Katie discuss the powerful depth of following your intuition. For Katie, the moment of awareness came to her when she started to battle with adrenal dysfunction and realized that there really is no “perfect diet” to heal her body. She knew that it would have to take a lot of her own curiosity by experimenting with different foods in order to see which of them would work best for her body. “When we are more in tune with our bodies, we can pause listen to what our bodies are really asking for.” Katie Garces talks about how she had to learn how to slow down and allow herself time and space to heal properly. By creating room to grow, Katie says that this helped her make an “intuitive switch” by quieting her mind, releasing control and letting herself flow to her own body’s rhythm.

    Meathead Hippie starstarstarstarstar

    In this special episode of Meathead Hippie, Em highlights two (out of many) of her most favorite clips from The Body Awareness Project Part One: Skin which is all about addressing the root causes of skin issues by looking deeper into our bodies. Lauren Geertsen brings awareness to the body’s “sacred symptoms” and stresses the importance of becoming attuned to the messages that our bodies are trying to send us. Lauren provides several steps on how to listen to your own body’s intuition in order to understand its place in your healing journey. In addition to Lauren’s piece, Diane Sanfilippo talks about the importance of knowing what we are putting on our skin with beauty and skin care products. Diane provides a great amount of useful tips on how to get rid of the harmful ingredients that are problematic to our systems by replacing them with ones that will work best for YOU. “If we know that there is something that we can change with our personal care, it is just another step that can prevent ourselves from using harmful products.”

In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Rosa and Em talk about how the most important quality to pertain in a friendship is authenticity, and Rosa exudes exactly that by being authentic in her own skin. In addition, Rosa speaks on her own struggles and day-to-day challenges she faces as a Arabic Muslim living in the States. “Anytime somebody conforms to what society claims as acceptable, you automatically gave up yourself.” Other topics that are discussed in this podcast include: How to balance your personal and professional lives, a body image mindset, instant gratification in today’s world of technology, and dealing with regrets throughout life.
