Season 4 Episode 7: Real Joy Part 2
In this episode we continue our conversation about the significant differences between joy and bliss, and how acceptance of the full range of our feelings helps us connect with our intuition, which in turn, guides us in a life that offers us true authenticity.
(Also there is some discussion of a very adorable little 12 lb cloud with feet). Turns out, our hearts are really big enough to feel it all, all at the same time.

Everyday Intuition S3E13 -- The GOAT Episode
This is the long-promised episode about goats! There's no competition currently for the GOAT intuition story, but IMHO this will definitely be a lifelong contender :)
I chat with my client Meg Simone who has graciously agreed to share her amazing experience following the trajectory of predictions revealed in her first session in 2019 all the way to the present.
Meg happened to transcribe the major points I made in her first session *verbatim*, which gave her some powerful reference points for how her life was going to change, and taught her how predictive intuition has 3 important functions: to prepare us well for those changes, to connect us with the highest good for the greatest number, and in this case, to thoroughly delight us!
Warning: this episode may make you giggle.

Everyday Intuition S3E11 -- It's The ADHD Friendly Show Podcast interview!
It's The ADHD Friendly Show Podcast interview! Everybody, meet Caren Magill, the creator of this valuable resource for celebrating smart, creative women with ADHD. I haven't talked about having ADHD publicly before, mostly because I didn't want it to contribute to the marginalization already plaguing our understanding of intuition. But it's time. Caren's interviewing skills are amazing and I felt instantly comfortable with her. Many of us with ADHD instinctively use our intuition to direct traffic in the very busy intersections that our brains can be. I'm so grateful Caren invited me to talk about how becoming more conscious about our intuition can create a powerhouse skill for us, bringing clarity and presence to our lives.
