Breaking Out Toxic Cycle of Burnout Work Culture with my Lilith in the 10th House
I shared a transmission with my community over on Instagram on some of my reflections this Super Full Moon in Capricorn and decided to share it here on my podcast show because the message is important.
Depending on which house your Lilith is in, this house can talk about the area of our life in which we might experience abuse, disempowerment - having our external validation of power taken away from us for us to find it without ourselves.
This Full Moon in Capricorn speaks to me deeply as I look towards my 10th house in Lilith, healing from the toxic patterns/chaotic cycles of my career back when I was working in different corporate environments.
I'm no stranger to falling into the cycles of workplace burnout and being dangled a carrot of recognition for how self-sacrificing we are.
As I look back on this period in my life many years ago - I see that on a huge collective level, extreme capitalistic systems are creating a breaking point for many individuals disillusioned by the promise falsely given to them through their higher education, relentless employers, and conditioned self-talk of
“Why can’t I keep up with my work peers?”
“I can’t let my boss know I’m falling apart. Must take on more to be recognized.”
And when we do speak up about our boundaries, I can’t tell how you many times clients come to me in with their backs up against the wall sharing how their employers, the organizations they’ve been so loyal and devoted to don’t give a crap about their well-being if it doesn’t support the company’s bottom line.
I use to be ashamed of my rage. It took a lot of inner work and teaching myself to detach from external validation from others (especially in the workplace) to let go of the unhealthy cycle of martyring myself for someone else’s ambition against my own humanity.
I’m no longer subduing my inner Lilith. The rage that runs through my veins fuels me. It guides me with a sense of purpose to make sure others don’t subject themselves to the same toxic work abuse that I’ve went through.
Join me in August on connecting with Lilith as our guide for shedding that external validation wound.

I’m super excited today to have Amanda in today's episode!

In this episode, we talk about what the spiritual ego may look like, how toxic positivity shows up in sneaky ways and why we may self-reject the parts of our identity that’s yearning to be witnessed.
Healing, self-acceptance, and how we perceive reality when we’re constantly in a state of impermanence is a tricky tight rope especially when many spiritual (even religious/hustle culture-based) communities dismiss the nuances of our relative human experience.

Conflict Resolution, Scientific Acumen and Ancient Spiritual Healing with Dr. Rebecca Nicholson
Dr. Rebecca Nicholson is a specialist in conflict analysis and resolution, has worked in counter post-war communal violence in West Africa, collaborated with nonprofit organizations to combat human trafficking, and has contributed research on genocide prevention.
She also worked in human intelligence, as a Senior Scientist to use nonlethal soft power tactics to augment psychological operations and civil-military affairs.
We talk about how she went through her own dark night of the soul for 6 years, leading her exploration into natural healing and bridging the connection between both physical and non-physical worlds into different spiritual practices.
In this episode, we talk about her bridge into spirituality and how much of modern society continues to persecute spiritual thought through downplaying, colonizing the concept into “woo” without fully understanding the breadth of what the non-physical world is really about and what it has to truly offer.
We tackle the tough conversation on the relationship between science and spirituality as scientists and spiritual teachers pursue very different goals.
This is why I find talking to Dr. Nicholson such a breath of fresh air. What happens, when part of the journey of living a full life is bridging the gap between spirituality and science? And what happens when society deems the unity of two concepts to be the anomaly?
[11:54-12:47] Dr. Nicholson shares about how and why she went for a Ph.D. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution.
[13:28-13:54] Why the definition of conflict is a real or perceived blocking of goals between two or more interdependent parties.
[25:40-25:50] She talks about how she was able to earn her own place, power and be able to do something useful in the world.
[30:11-30:20] She discussed how we interact mentally, emotionally, and on the physical plane with people.
[39:24-39:37] We talked about sensitivity and setting intuitive boundaries.
[41:26-41:48] Being able to tap into your energetics, emotions, different ways that you can understand what's going on with people in a healing capacity.
[1:10-1:11] We discuss why nobody ever can trump your own knowledge of what your path is.
How to Conquer Your Fears of Being Seen
We oftentimes hide from situations where we can't predict or control the outcome.
Most of our fear lies in how much we depend on our ability to control the situation and our fear of not receiving the exact outcome as our expectations.
Such a masculine thing - to always need to be in control. So much so, you don't give yourself the opportunity to be seen at all.
In this episode of the Golden Hour Series, I talk about why humans crave so much certainty. We hide so much from others... so much so, we choose to hide from ourselves. Our dreams. Our needs, our biggest wants. We dim our opinions, our messiness, our "this is too much of me" to accommodate others. We want other imperfect humans to think of us as the basis of what we define as the worthiness we must meet in order to be accepted. This way of being is such a disservice to others. It's such a disservice to you.
I share the pervasive discomfort that is the side effect of showing up, being seen in all of my messiness- and being the imperfect human that I am and how showing up constantly activates my fear (my core wound) that is reinforced by my Chiron in Leo in the area of my work (6th house).
How do you show up consistently and be seen despite the uncertainty and discomfort? Listen to find out.
Tap into Your Inherent Worth Through Mindset Coaching
I had the wonderful pleasure of interviewing Ryan Ramirez. He's a life coach based in London, UK, and is also the owner and founder of Boomdiggidy, a hip-hop dance studio teaching people how to dance.

Navigating Imposter Syndrome As an Empath
I'm continuing the topic on navigating imposter syndrome in today's golden hour series after getting a lot of requests from listeners and on Instagram to dive deeper into this touchy subject. I'll be sharing my personal advice and tips from someone that's been there.
[00:10] Why imposter syndrome happens, and especially for empaths.
[03:32] What are the different ways in which we can combat imposter syndrome.
[04:37] Why is imposter syndrome debilitating if we let it win.
[11:54] Gratitude combats self-doubt.
[14:19] Be honest when sharing to minimize imposter syndrome.
[24:02] Every single human has the capability of being empathetic, and the more we exercise that muscle, the more empathetic we can be.
Understanding Imposter Syndrome with Ayesha Noelle
I'm excited to introduce to you Ayesha, Noelle, she's an imposter syndrome coach helping other female coaches achieve their business goals and overcome imposter syndrome by combining elegantly simple science based strategies into her framework.
In this episode, we explore all the nuances of imposter syndrome and ways to combat it, the difference between therapy and life coaching, and why they both play a fundamental role in a person's self-development journey, as well as what it means to be an empathic coach.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
[02:37] She talks about what happens when you are ambitious and the ways we may work against ourselves.
[4:37] What is a self-fulfilling prophecy and how it connects to imposter syndrome
[13:15] She shared why she decided to become a coach and not a psychologist
[25:42] How she helps people understand both the spiritual side and the emotional side.
[22:12] Having a coach can keep you accountable and see your blind spots. It's such a powerful way to move out of your mental blocks and make you feel more empowered.
[02:27] Why are most people their own worst enemy?
[05:17] Most of the time when you endure imposter syndrome, it's because you are in a room with a lot of experts.
Navigating Pandemic Anxiety
I wanted to share with you some of my tips, trials, and tribulations on how I initially navigated the pandemic when it first happened in 2020 and moving into this new year for 2021, what looks different as a lot of shifts needed to happen in both my personal life as well as my business model to align with problem-solving as a collective whole.
How do we navigate and preserve our energetic wells, preserve our energy so we can really show up to our work, to our loved ones, and to ourselves? Things will never look the same pre-pandemic. I talk about why it's so crucial to protect our energy and peace of mind more than ever as we navigate entrepreneurship and staying grounded.
[00:11] Ways to navigate the pandemic.
[00:35] Tips, trials, and tribulations on how I navigated the pandemic on the first wave when it happened last year.
[03:41] How I navigate from living on my own to living with someone else.
[08:11] The awareness through journaling practice, ways I dissipate my own anxiety.
[09:23] I stopped trying to fix other people's problems and instead - started focusing on taking care of myself.
[11:54] Consuming stimulants, such as caffeine, sugar, may heighten your sensitivity (and anxiety).
Calm Your Anxiety & Gut with Nutritional WellBeing
Jane and I talk all about learning how to calm your anxiety and nourish your gut health with nutritional well being.
Jane Aquino is a registered nutritional therapist specializing in mental and metabolic health. What I love about Jane's approach is how she focuses on helping clients specifically with overcoming their anxiety and overwhelm by harmonizing gut health. I only wish I found Jane when I was in college, as it personally took a long time for me to connect the dots on how nutrition plays a key part in optimizing my mental health as well as happiness.
If you're inspired to finally uplevel and take control of both your emotional mental well-being with tailored evidence-based nutrition & lifestyle therapy, links and resources to work with her are below.
The Gap Between Your Current Self & Your Embodied Self
I really wanted to talk about what embodiment means. And not only what embodiment means, but what is keeping us from fully stepping into the embodiment of our highest selves, our biggest potential, our calling, however, you want to call it, the biggest question is, what is the gap between where we currently are to our highest embodied self.
And so in this gap, and between this gap, there's a lot of things that contribute to what creates a daunting gap, where it becomes very difficult for us to take that leap of faith to make that jump. And it can look like stepping away from the idea of quitting our jobs. It can signify, holding back on starting that business that we've always dreamed of.
And so, the gap contains a lot of wounding a lot of pain, fear of rejection, fear of judgment from other people, and us misconstruing other people's truths as if it's the only truth. And so, therefore, it is our truth. And that is, this is one of the biggest mistakes that a lot of empaths and HSP intuitive people make when they take on the energy and the opinions of other people because they haven't really done the work and the deep dive to truly understand what are some of the things that they truly stand by and stand for, ultimately, the way across this gap, and to bridge the gap between where we currently are our existing self at this present moment.
[00:38] Michelle talks about what embodiment means.
[00:45] She shared about what is keeping us from fully stepping into the embodiment of our highest selves, our biggest potential, our calling, the biggest question is, what is the gap between where we currently are to our highest embodied self?
[01:57] She shared about the biggest mistakes that a lot of empaths and HSP intuitive people make when they take on the energy and the opinions of other people.
[02:33] What we define as limitations, what we define as things that are getting in the way of us, tapping into our embodied self, and being fully integrated into that embodied self.
[12:57] If we think that there is a threat to our survival, or that we're in danger of losing something more than we will gain from it. We become psychologically incentivized to go after and immediately take action, to be motivated to do the thing.
[17:04] The way to really help balance out and reach equilibrium with this ebb and flow is to up your threshold of what you choose to tolerate when you're in a state of panic.
[19:31] Michelle talks about the key to really balancing is to change and shift your threshold on what makes you panic.
[22:13] Before we get into the nitty-gritty of business strategy crafting your offer that's truly authentic and aligned to who you are as a person.
Navigating Difficult Conversations around Infertility and Life’s Biggest Struggles with Asha Blooms
Carol Gavhane is the founder of Asha Blooms, a jewelry brand created to carry the intention to uplift and inspire when we're going through life's biggest challenges. In this episode, we talked about how Asha Blooms was created to provide comfort and address challenges around infertility, and ways we can provide solace to those that are quietly struggling and need emotional support on their fertility journey.
She never made jewelry before, with the exception of making some cute little friendship bracelets at summer camp. But a few years ago, she had secondary infertility. She was unable to get pregnant the second time around. Everything about her first baby was so easy. Everything about trying to have her second was extremely difficult. And she tried all of the modalities she could possibly think of to help her be successful in her pregnancy. From fertility, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, clean eating support groups prayer, she tried just about anything she could do.
Soon she began to see that in the midst of all these challenges, creating a symbol of possibility was the only tangible piece that felt aligned. Over time, it was more than a good luck charm - it was a true symbol of hope. Through this intentionality and embodying inner strength, she finally was able to have her second child.
Money Energetics: Overcoming Blocks Around Money
In today's episode, I take a deep dive in talking about healing some of our deepest money beliefs. This is a recurring theme that consistently comes up whether we are promoting ourselves with our businesses, and especially working with clients that are trying to build businesses and really step into their calling.
One of the biggest struggles that even I myself, deal with time and time again is overcoming limiting beliefs surrounding my relationship with money.
In this episode, I wanted to give you a little bit of a background where I started on my journey to healing my money beliefs and the tools I used to overcome these blocks.Shownotes:
[00:38] I share limiting beliefs that surround how we think about money, our relationship with money, how we spend, how we give, and where the scarcity mindset might penetrate into our daily lives.
[01:22] Money can be a direct mirror reflection, on how we define worthiness if we're deserving of money because money allows us to obtain certain things.
[04:56] Money can be obtained most easily and most effectively through these mindset hacks.
[10:26] I talk about how I finally jumped into entrepreneurship.
[13:06] I discuss how the law of attraction came into play with part of overcoming money blocks starting with practicing the art of detachment.
[14:15] I talk about where I was five years ago, how did I know I was going to be an empath mindset coach, and launch my own podcast show
[19:35] I share tips to create that first step in strengthening how you view your relationship with money.
