Take 15 minutes and explore this guided audio meditation, “Calling on Our Allies,” which encourages you to connect with the love and support of those around you.
I love this meditation! I did it for the first time with my Embodied Leadership group in March 2020. The timing was perfect, although we didn't consciously know it. We were about to enter into a global crisis and a period of change like no other we have experienced. Being able to connect, communicate, and receive wisdom and guidance from our inner selves and the wisdom of the universe helped us step into this new chapter of our lives with support and love from sources that understand us at a deep level. I hope you enjoy this meeting of light beings!
When you ask, assistance is given to every single one of your requests. The universe always responds, but it does so according to your soul's intentions and the highest and best good of all, not necessarily as...
Hello, beautiful souls! In 2019, I had the honour of interviewing the incredibly inspiring and talented Elizabeth Gilbert on the Embodied podcast. Elizabeth, the author of "Eat, Pray, Love" and "Big Magic," shared her insights on creativity, spirituality, and the process of self-discovery.
I wanted to reshare the podcast conversation with you, and I encourage you to listen to the full episode for even more wisdom and inspiration.

Are you looking for ways to maintain emotional and spiritual stability amidst the overwhelming anxiety surrounding you?
It's not easy, but maintaining inner balance is what counts most right now.
All the emotional healing and spiritual work you've done in the past has led you to this moment, where you can decide which path to follow. This choice is an ongoing one, made moment by moment. Will you choose to stay within yourself, dealing with the whirlwind of emotions, or will you let yourself be swept away by the collective anxiety, distancing yourself from your inner wisdom and security?
These uncertain times call for a focus on the present moment more than ever because here and now is where you'll find stability.
Here are five questions to help you assess your energy, gain clarity about the present moment, and...
Take twelve minutes and explore this guided audio meditation; a journey that encourages you to imagine encountering a version of your future self, ten years from now.
Close your eyes and bring your attention to your breath. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Slow your breath down and expand your breath. Breathe deeply, allowing every part of your body to relax, to surrender with each exhalation, allowing your jaw to drop, and every part of your throat chakra to soften, to relax.
At your next deep breath, imagine that the core of your being, from the base of your spine all the way to the top of your head, opens up like a hollow cylinder. And this beautiful white light that comes from the top of your head from the universe pours down and fills your entire core and comes out at your root chakra. You can feel the movement of this light going down your body.
And imagine that, in a counter-movement, this beautiful light also comes back up from the earth, moves...
This month on my podcast, Embodied, my friend Naomi Irons shares the story of the near-death experience she experienced on Christmas morning in 2021.
Her story is incredible and full of unexpected twists and turns. The insights and wisdom that spring from this conversation are the true gifts.
Naomi lives in the jungle on the Island of Hawaii. The unstable connection sometimes distorts her voice, but her message is clear: to truly live, we must let go of what has run its course.
Highlights of our hour and twenty-four-minute conversation include:

In the creative cycle, the Inner Winter is the initiation and incubation phase. It is the time to retreat, tune in, and allow yourself to receive the inspiration without taking action—yet.
Giving ourselves space and silence to allow this process to happen enables us to receive the inspiration for the next phase and incubate it in our being so that, much like a baby, it can build in energy before we birth it into the world.
As a creative, I’m aware that there is a time when I should hold the seeds of a new idea or creation close to my heart and nurture them carefully, keeping them safe from the hard frost of other people’s opinions and criticism.
The energy of the Inner Winter is not linear or logical. When we are in this inner season, we may find ourselves moving in spirals, circling around something, and returning to the same spot repeatedly as we do when we walk a labyrinth.
For this reason, it’s important to allow yourself to be fully in the mystery of...
I have been thinking a lot lately about how when I am fully present to myself, I naturally am an embodied leader, whether I am meditating, or spending time with my family, or teaching in front of a group.
Being an embodied leader means, first and foremost, that we lead ourselves through the process of self-exploration, self-healing, soul-love, and soul-realization. You inspire others much more when you have done your own personal work ; )
Disembodied leaders lead from a place of fear and fragmented self, hungry for validation, and projecting the divisions they carry inside. Disembodied leaders find short-term success by creating resonance with the fears of their followers.
However, because this goes against the natural impulse of life, it will eventually retreat in the face of the human impetus toward expansion and growth. Because we all come to a place of self-reliance and self-love, whether it happens during our lifetime or at...
New Year’s resolutions are typically goals that we set for the coming year, results we plan to achieve. For example: “This year I will exercise, meditate, or somehow succeed more… and I will stress, drink, and overeat less.” Optimistic and caught up in the spirit, 'New Year’s Eve You' makes promises on behalf of 'Future You', and Future You never have a chance, because goals set in the future often stay in the future, and we find ourselves making the same resolutions the following year.
There is only ever right now. That's why deciding what you will be in the future is never as powerful as making changes in the present moment. Start thinking about how you want to live your “nows.” The best way to make your intentions a reality is to re-conceptualize resolutions as daily, even hourly, commitments, more like “New Now’s Resolutions.”
Over the past 15 years, I have gone through an incredible journey of deepening my connection...
Preparing for the meditation:
Stop. Right here. Right now.
Take a deep breath in through your nose, and let it out your mouth.
Continue. For a moment.
Stop going so fast. Just stop.
Right here. Right now.
Your heart knows. You are here.
Remember who you are. In your heart.
Stop. Pause. Breathe.
Come home. Be in you.
You are here. Now. How beautiful you are.
You are here in your heart.
Feel. This moment. Your being. You.
You. Are. Here. Now. Breathe.
This. Now. Is more important than anything you were doing.
Come back now. Be home.
In the centre of your chest.
Everything is there. Nothing is missing.
Breathe. Be here.
