Renee Airya

This episode with Renee Airya is about accepting the range of our emotions and feeling comfortable with expressing them. We also talk about connecting to our truth, which comes up often on the podcast, but it's so important for us to create that internal channel of connection. I love how Renee invites us to feel into our truth to decide who we are and who we’re not in the moment. And, we get to change that every moment. I tell my client's all the time, it’s all about what we can do in the moment because as we grow and evolve, our truth will change- and that’s OK. 

About Renee:

Renee Airya is a former fashion model who has healed from three near death experiences, including massive brain surgery and facial paralysis. Her book, “Flip Your Flaws” is a compelling story of Renee’s personal emotional, spiritual, and physical journey from paralyzation to liberation. She encourages everyone to step out of hiding by flipping their flaws and using them as a gateway for expressing their sincerity and most unique abilities.

In this episode Renee shares:

  1.   How we can learn to appreciate our flaws and change the story surrounding them.
  2.   What happens when we assume other people have it together and we don’t.
  3.   How we can invite more creativity into our lives.

 

What you’ll hear: 

11:12- How we can experience different emotions without negating them.

19:55- How we can understand ourselves on a deeper level.

23:00- The reason why it’s so hard to connect to our truth.

36:00- How to set fierce boundaries with compassion.

In this episode Jill Coleman and I talk about how we can find purpose outside of the obsession we have with our bodies. This is a huge conversation and a core desire for a lot of the women who come into HFH community. You know, it's something I had to figure on my own, understanding how to be in our bodies and how to just love myself without obsessing over myself. Jill and I also talk about creating a unique approach to life. We tend to over-consume information and jump to the thing, the next podcast, next plan, the next book and we really talk about experiencing transformation on a visceral level.

 

In this episode Jill shares:

  1. How to find balance in the chaos of managing your relationship with food.
  2. Why we're stuck in a state of urgency and scarcity.
  3. Shifting out of the belief that when we get to a certain weight, we will be happy.
  4. How we can transform our bodies from a place of acceptance.

 

What You'll Hear:

7:40- Overconsumption and implementing our truth

19:10- How we can find purpose outside of obsessing over our bodies.

22:20- How dieting drained Jill's intimacy, confidence and libido.

30:50- Reframing the way we look from a place of acceptance.

40:10- Unlearning the social conditioning we've been programmed to believe.
