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.

This episode with Lisa Kaplin is all about getting over the fear of voicing our truth and creating a clear channel of communication. You know something I see constantly with my clients is the fear of speaking up because we're afraid of rejection and something I always say to them is it's not rejection, it's re-direction. As children we were taught to be quiet, fit in, just accept what’s given to us and follow the rules because that’s the respectful thing to do. So as evolved women when we want to speak out, wr second guess ourselves and think, "What if they don’t like me?", "What if I'm not loved?", "What if I'm rejected?" Lisa does a great job explaining how to get out of this mindset so we can feel worthy and deserving and truly just ask for and get what we want.

About Lisa

Lisa Kaplin is a psychologist and professional certified coach who works with women on building their confidence in all areas of their lives. She believes the least important aspect of a woman is her appearance so she's dedicated to helping women find meaning and joy in other ways. Lisa is a recovered good girl and perfectionist and her life is so much better because of it.

In this episode, Lisa shares:

  1. How to get clear on your needs.
  2. Asking for what you want from a position of power.
  3. Understanding your love language and expressing what makes you feel appreciated (link below)
  4. What happens when we have expectations that aren’t communicated.

What You’ll Hear:

2:02- What it costs us when our needs aren’t communicated.

7:40- The small steps we can take to ask for what we want.

19:00- The difference between being assertive and discerning vs aggressive.

31:28- The extremes of helplessness vs taking on everything.

I loved this episode. One thing we talked about with our group programs and with all of our clients is life is constantly happening for us in perfect timing. When we can step out of that victim mentality of "Life is happening to me" and and "Life is happening for me" it shifts our emotionality and we're able to see and experience more miracles and so we talked a lot about this. Jessica opens up about her condition, endometriosis and how it's given her awareness of her body.  By going plant based, she has managed and eliminated many of her symptoms. We talk about the impact of food and our bodies from an internal approach, how it affects our menstrual cycles and Jessica takes us through a body scan practice to check in which was super cool.

Inside this episode, Jessica shares

  1. How Jessica created a cookbook from experimenting with food.
  2. Living with endometriosis and managing the symptoms. 
  3. How we can check in with our body and use our pain as a teacher.

We’re this steady stream of love but as we go through life, we get blocked from the pain, trauma and forced actions we experience. Rebecca explains how we can acknowledge our blocks so we can heal, remove them and get back into our natural state, which is of course flow.

In this episode with Katie Dalebout we talk about expressing our true selves through journaling.

Katie really speaks to this and shares how journaling has helped her connect to her higher self.

Today Robyn and I talk about energetic frequencies, vibrations and flow. I am so into this conversation about vibe and food. It is something that I am personally really digging into in my own life and I using in my own work as well. But what I love about this episode is how Robyn brings quantum physics to the conversation, so it's like combining woo woo stuff with actual science proving we and everything around us is just energy. All day long we’re either giving or receiving energy. The more energy we have, the higher we vibrate and more of what we LOVE becomes available to us.

JJ Virgin In this episode JJ and I spoke about all of the things. From motherhood, family, growing a business, sugar cravings, willpower and victimhood, we talked about how our mindset is the foundational support for every belief we have (something we talk about all the time on the show). So many of us become attached to a story of victimhood and if we're not mindful, it can seep into every area in our lives. I love how JJ breaks this down in the episode and sums it up with her quote, "There are no victims, only volunteers."


About JJ Virgin

Celebrity nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin teaches clients how to lose weight and master their mindset so they can lead bigger, better lives.

Today I’m interviewing Rachel Foy and I loved this episode. We touched base on so many levels in this episode. Her and I both were chronic dieters for years and we talked about having a respect and appreciation for food. I know for a lot of people listening, they’re like, “I don’t know how to do that because I’m feeling so anxious around it!” so we kind of go through the cycles of what it takes in order to truly come to a place of appreciation around food.

About Rachel Foy:
Rachel Foy AKA The Food Freedom Coach is a UK based eating psychology mindset coach. She works with smart ambitious women to stop fighting food, make peace with their body and take their life back so food and weight obsession are no longer a part of it.

Her background is in clinical and cognitive hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Eating Psychology, nutritional therapy and EFT (emotional freedom technique).

In this episode, Rachel shares:
Our emotional state is tied to our digestion.
The shifts that change once we create an appreciation for our food.
How often we blame our weight...but it’s not actually the problem.

What You’ll Hear:
4:45- How our emotional state around food ties into our digestion.
11:15- Rachel’s heartbreak and how it led to her self-discovery.
22:00- Recognizing the media’s portrayal of beauty is a belief we don’t have to follow.
28:50- Developing trust and neutrality around food.

Jenna Phillips

In this episode, Jenna and I got to explore the importance of inviting play into our every day lives. It’s so funny, as adults, we become so restricted that we forget we’re allowed to have FUN! We also touched on the insane power of language. What we chose to say about our circumstances directly affects our emotional and our physical states. Jenna lives by this concept (I’ve seen it first hand) and does an amazing job showcasing the benefits as she walks us through some of her life’s most traumatic experiences.


About Jenna Phillips

Jenna began her career in 2006 as a personal trainer and life coach for celebrities and has been featured on Dr. Phil and The Doctors. Halfway through her career, she realized she had a bigger calling.

In 2016, she cofounded Ascension Leadership Academy with her husband and they have coached hundreds of people into their greatness. She's also the founder of Unicorn University - where women never spend another day being beige, broke, or behaved.


In this episode, Jenna shares:

  1. How playfulness activates higher levels of possibilities in life.
  2. Using food and clothes as physical barriers for safety.
  3. Loving hurtful parts of the past and using them as tools to strengthen the present.
  4. How her Unicorn University encourages women to be who they want.


What You’ll Hear: 

5:10-The healing powers of allowing yourself to break down.

9:46- The direct connection our language and our experiences.

15:05- How Jenna cultivated and strengthened a mindset of abundance.

24:00- Using forgiveness to release shame around traumatic experiences.
