MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Hi there,   This week, I taught self-love tools to my kids' Montessori class. Watching those little ones reminded me of the pure light and playfulness that still lives within each of us.   As adults, we often get caught up in responsibilities, challenges, and the pressure to be perfect and have it all together.   We’ve forgotten what “success” really means.   But deep down, that joyful, curious, and carefree child we once were is still there, waiting to be seen and heard.   In today’s podcast we’ll reconnect to your inner child and let your inner light shine....

hi there soul friend! today, I am celebrating and doing a big ole’ happy dance! I found my editor for my first book! After finishing my book draft in January, I’ve been paralyzed by fear of failure and disappointment for three months, and haven’t done anything with it.   Last month during my yoga retreat in Bali, I had a major breakthrough and haven’t felt this free in over three years! I’ve been working on befriending my fears to move through my problems towards possibly.   So, last week, I did this meditation that I share in EP 194 of the MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST, and then...

Introduction: In today's episode, I dive into a personal story that many parents can relate to—a moment of losing my temper with my child.

  Hey there, I was on a call with my coach a week before I left for my Bali retreat and feeling frazzled of what to focus on – my new website? marketing? Bali? "I want to feel f*ck!ng POTENT!" I blurted out For the past 2.5 years, I've been drowning in overwhelm and busyness, feeling like a diluted version of myself—lifeless, and frankly, dead inside. My coach posed a question that hit me like a bolt of lightning: "What does potency look like for you this week before you leave for your Bali retreat?" In that moment, as I placed my hand on my heart and sank into stillness, I realized...

how are you doing? like...really? If you're feeling less than sparkly, I hope this love notes helps you remember your True Self and your gifts that only you have.    I’ve been on a 3-year quest to reconnect with my True Self - that innate expansive place inside each of us that is infinite possibilities, unbounded creativity and a portal to the Divine.  It can feel unattainable, especially in our busy world telling us we’re not enough, but your true self is simply your true nature—the witness of life's flow and an integral part of that flow. Personally, I’ve felt...

🌟 Cultivate Happiness in 3 easy steps 🌟 Hey there! We all crave happiness, right? Whether it's snagging our dream job, amassing more of everything (money, stuff, experiences), or finding that soulmate, it all boils down to one universal quest - happiness.

The experience was beyond words, and I'm thrilled to announce we'll be returning next year – the magic is simply irresistible!

Hi there ,   Have you ever found yourself in the judgment trap, feeling inadequate and unworthy?   Judgement isn’t just about criticizing others, but it also picks apart our flaws and magnifies our mistakes. It whispers cruel “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts,” leaving us feeling unworthy and unlovable.   Often the judgments we make on others are reflections of our own insecurities and judgements about ourselves.   The sad part about listening to judgement is that when we judge others, we close ourselves off from the beauty of their potential and the richness of their...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Hey there,   I have a vulnerable share. I’ve struggled with perfectionism these past few years, and it’s been so paralyzing that it’s silenced my voice and my gifts as a teacher and coach.   In the online coaching world, the pressure to be flawless, to have all the answers and to be the expert has been overwhelming. Perfectionism has caused to show up inauthentically (hello imposter syndrome!) …or show up as a flat version of my personality… or worse - not show up at all!... only to be met with shame for not doing and being more.   Perfectionism is like a sneaky thief,...

Do you ever have those days where self-doubt just seems to sneak in and rain on your parade? Yup, me too.   In my book on how to quiet our Itty-Bitty-Shitty-Committee, I share about The Four Horsemen: Comparison, Self-Doubt, Perfectionism, and Judgment that slays our self-worth.   Personally, I've gone through a lot of transition over the past 3 years and have struggled a lot with the Four Horsemen that slays our self-worth.   Each week this month, I share how we can befriend each of these horsemen and ways to choose to align with our True abundant Self. After having my second...

Hi there ,

 

Have you ever found yourself in the judgment trap, feeling inadequate and unworthy?

 

Judgement isn’t just about criticizing others, but it also picks apart our flaws and magnifies our mistakes. It whispers cruel “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts,” leaving us feeling unworthy and unlovable.

 

Often the judgments we make on others are reflections of our own insecurities and judgements about ourselves.

 

The sad part about listening to judgement is that when we judge others, we close ourselves off from the beauty of their potential and the richness of their experiences.

 

We miss out on the opportunity to truly connect and understand one another.

 

But perhaps even more damaging is the judgment we inflict upon ourselves.

 

This week, your invitation is to consciously recognize the harmful voice of the Itty-Bitty-Shitty-Committee—the voice that tells us we’re not good enough, smart enough, or worthy enough, and instead of buying into its negative narrative, choose to practice Ahimsa.

 

Ahimsa is the Sanskrit terms that means nonviolence towards ourselves and others. 

 

But Ahimsa is not just about refraining from physical harm but also about abstaining from harmful thoughts and beliefs.

 

When we embrace Ahimsa, we break free from the cycle of self-inflicted suffering and open ourselves up to a life of compassion and grace.

 

Each time you notice, pause and choose to not harm yourself through judgment that creates separation from others and ourselves, you move closer towards your True Self.

 

Listen HERE to the full episode EP 189. Thanks for sharing it with friends who could use a little soul nourishment too.

 

Sending you all the good vibes and virtual hugs,

Audrey 🌸
