She doing incredible things over in the UK with the body image and relationship to food movement. She's an absolutely incredible human. Mel had a seven year battle with eating disorders and in this episode we talked about how she recovered and how she had to accommodate everything in her life to serve her eating disorder.

EP 046: More Courage, Less Fear with Kate Swoboda

This episode is all about courage and the reason why I love the whole idea of living a courageous life is what it leads to. When we’re on the edge of what is kind of  uncomfortable, (I say this all of the time, my like feels like a constant wedgie because it’s always a little uncomfortable) what we get to experience by living on our edge and stepping into the things that terrify us, leads to so much. It’s truly where the magic happens. We’re not going to be able to understand how incredible we are until we push the edge of it and really explore what it is.

This episode is all about the small steps we can make to create big shifts in our lives. So often we think that in order for us to have these enriching, meaningful lives we have to go out and change the world or change the planet, and it’s simply just not true. We can create change in our everyday community just by focusing on things that matter the most in our hearts like lighting someone else’s heart up through a smile, conversation, a hug. That changes the world. And I think so often we just bypass that stuff and don’t pay attention to it. This episode is all about cultivating awareness around this. This could be simply using our voice to open up discussions around social injustice, creating a community garden, offering social services to propel a support group, truly anything. There are so many different avenues we can take when we learn to look at our pain as a teacher and a guide.

13:20- Using energetics to build a business.

23:19- Creating daily rituals to connect to source.

37:51- The most effective way to create an impact.

Today I am interviewing Kali Rogers! We had such a great interview. She is such a cool chick and you guys are going to realize this once you start listening. We chatted about the power of choice, something I’m stoked on; I loved that conversation, and approaching life from a place of curiosity rather than attachment. So often, we want to control our way to happiness, and we all know that doesn’t work. We cling onto identities that make us feel like crap because we’re truly afraid of what will happen if we let go. But letting go is where the magic happens. I talk about this a lot in our community and it’s the whole concept of our structured selves vs our fluid selves. Our structured self is the identity of who we think we need to be and our fluid self is recognizing what feels good to us in the moment. The more we can allow ourselves to be fluid, the easier it is for us to make choices that are in pure alignment with what we want.


Kali Rogers

Kali Rogers is the Founder of Blush Online Life Coaching. She and her team of coaches provide support, motivation, guidance, and advice to girls via videoconference from around the globe for only $79/mo. As well as working with her own individual clients, she provides personality trainings for companies around the country and is the author of, “Conquering Your Quarter Life Crisis: How to Get Your Shit Together in Your 20’s.”


In this episode, Kali shares:

2:07- How the fear of isolation shows up in every aspect of our growth.

7:10- Recognizing and releasing identities that are no longer in alignment.

10:13- Understanding the difference between what we can and cannot control.

14:00- Kali’s transition from pursuing a career as an attorney to a life coach.

23:04- Conquering Your Quarter Life Crisis: How to Get Your Shit Together in Your 20s.

27:00- The first thing we should do when we feel stuck.

35:00- Approaching life from a place of curiosity instead of control.

41:12- Why attachment blocks our ability to manifest.

Loralei Bayette

This episode is all about relationships and viewing our relationships as a mirror. She got really real and vulnerable and basically said on the show, “I don’t trust myself to be in a relationship.” And it’s so freakin cool for a woman to just own that and just really say, “Ok listen, now is not the time. The time is to love ME. The time is to be in my own body. The time is to understand myself.” I just thought that was one of the rad-est things that has ever been shared on the show so I appreciate her so much for saying that. We’re really digging into the topics of feeling lonely, insignificant, unloveable-whatever it may be- and how we are dependent on relationships to provide that for us. That’s a broken model, we really have to fulfill that within ourselves, because a relationship is only adding value to what we already have.


About Loralei Bayette 

Loralei Bayette is a speaker and Holistic Trasnformation Coach. She helps clear obstacles and uses herself as a stepping stone and mirror to her client's self discovery and manifesting power.
