Finding your true calling with astrology

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-37ifx-118e89f

Have you ever struggled with finding your true calling? Maybe you’ve worked in a career that just wasn’t suited to you?

 

Or maybe there’s something that lights you up that you feel led to do, but you’re unsure if it’s even a viable plan?

 

My most recent podcast guest, Cat Rose Neligan, said, “Being an introvert isn’t an excuse not to live your best life.”

 

Cat is an astrologer, writer, coach INTJ, and creative introvert who is dedicated to helping others find their true calling. Cat’s fascination with astrology began as an extension of her interest in personality typology. She soon found out the study of the stars had much, much more to offer, and has been learning as much as she can ever since.

 

Cat now incorporates astrology into her work coaching creative introverts, helping artists, writers, musicians and all kinds of creatives to better understand themselves, identify their calling, and share their work with the world.

 

Join us for an episode where we dive into topics like introversion (and the challenges it brings in business), astrology and how to use it as a tool to improve your life, mercury retrograde, and Saturn returns.

Boundary tips from a former metalhead librarian.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-6jdme-1187940

Are you an introverted empath? Have you struggled with the energetic and emotional drain that comes with being a highly-sensitive person?

 

One of the most valuable tips that I’ve heard as an empath was, “As you get older you have to take back that energy and turn it towards yourself. Towards making sure that you as an empath are cared for. That you’re taking the time you need. And that you are aware of your own boundaries energetically with people. It’s important to learn to say no. There is an energetic cost to pay.”

 

“You recognize your patterns and you start to accept that you can’t keep doing what drains you. You learn to say no and protect your own energy. Be kind with yourself about it, because people are going to be disappointed with you.”

 

These words of wisdom came from my latest podcast guest, Anna-Marie O’Brien, a writer, author, writing coach, and former metalhead librarian.

 

Anna-Marie O’Brien grew up in Ohio as a fan of rock music and good books. After working for a record label in the early 1990’s, she spent almost 20 years as a public librarian. She now coaches writers through their creative pauses, and is currently working on her third book. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona.

Being with what is: How to use meditation to improve your life as an Introvert and Highly Sensitive Person.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-n2wq3-117e726

Have you ever tried meditation? Ever wondered how it could improve the lives of Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), introverts, and empaths?

 

My latest podcast guest shared a wealth of wisdom when it comes to the topic of meditation and being a sensitive human being.

 

David Johnson is a life coach for introverts and highly-sensitive people, where he helps people gain confidence in themselves and in the lives that they wish to live by using the techniques that he has learned while studying Buddhism.

 

David is a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), introvert, and INFJ who is currently located on the island of Maui, in Hawaii.

 

He is originally from the United Kingdom and spent seven years living in a Buddhist community studying meditation with a Tibetan Buddhist teacher when he was in his late twenties.

 

Now, David co-facilitates men’s mentoring circles in the local jail on Maui and has a passion for helping the quieter folk. He is an advocate for men who are struggling with understanding their personality type and are looking for strategies to be in the world without changing who they are.

 

Join us for this refreshing episode on meditation, where we debunk the myths, talk about its benefits, and a share a few simple tips to keep up your meditation practice.

 

One of my favorite things that David said was that, “It’s all about awareness (of the mind and what’s going on in there, and being there with what is…and allowing). Our mind is like a puppy and it takes us all over the place. You can sit anywhere and watch the breath going into your nose and out of your mouth (ex. The bathroom is not the most ideal place, but you can truly fit in breathing anywhere you are).”

3 Signs that you might be a perfectionist.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-czjk2-10d6eb3

Are you a perfectionist?

 

Maybe you consider yourself a high-achiever, a results-driven person, and someone who knows how to hold it all together perfectly.

But doesn’t this get stressful for you?

 

Needing to keep up appearances or draining acts to portray a certain image to others?

 

Many empaths, highly-sensitive people (HSPs), women, and of course…empath women and sensitive women struggle with perfectionism on a daily basis.

 

What was once seen as an admirable character trait to have has now turned into a draining act that many of us can’t keep up anymore.

 

If you’ve ever struggled with perfectionism, you know how tough it can feel to be hyper-critical of ourselves, behavior, appearance, and actions.

 

If you’ve ever wondered if you might be a perfectionist, stay tuned for this episode where I will share 3 signs that might make you a perfectionist.

 

If you’re an empath who is struggling with self-limiting beliefs + behavior like this, or you’re having trouble with things like setting healthy boundaries or managing the energetic drain and overwhelm that so often comes with being an empath, then…

 

Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!

3 benefits of spending more alone time with yourself.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-3ht4k-10d298a

Alone time is necessary for us to recharge.

 

This is especially true for empaths, introverts, and highly-sensitive people (HSPs).

 

Having a nervous system that is highly attuned and sensitive to the emotions and energy of the people around them isn’t always a walk in the park.

 

When we don’t get enough alone time, we can find ourselves feeling frazzled, exhausted, overwhelmed, and about ready to throw in the towel.

 

Side note: If you’re an extrovert or you’re not an empath or sensitive, I still invite you to stick around because we as humans need alone time in general.

 

Alone time is critical for our individuality, personal sovereignty, and mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.

We don’t always think about the impact that spending time with others all of the time does to us and our nervous systems.

 

So join me on this episode, where I’ll share 3 benefits of spending alone time and how it improves your relationship with yourself.

 

Getting alone time is essential for the empath who is tired of feeling energetically depleted and overwhelmed with the busy lives that we live.

 

If you’re an empath who is looking for guidance on managing energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships…

 

Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!

Why your trust issues are holding you back in your relationships.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-7vad6-10ccd6b

Welcome back to the show!

 

Last time, we went over 4 signs that you might have trust issues.

 

Today we’re going to talk about why your trust issues are holding you back in your relationships.

 

If you’ve struggled with trust issues before and you’re wondering how it’s truly impacting the health of your relationships, then stick around for this episode.

 

And hey! You might be someone who has struggled with trust issues before. Or maybe you’ve been on the receiving end of a relationship with someone with trust issues.

 

Either way, it’s not easy.

 

But the good news is, if you do want to rebuild trust within yourself and your relationships…it is possible.

 

But what most people miss is that we have to start by working on ourselves, first.

 

I know this sounds counterintuitive, but if you’re struggling with a fear of intimacy, a lack of trusting others, insecurity, and deeply rooted personal issues (ex. fear of abandonment), it’s vital to start working on yourself first.

 

What does this look like?

 

Maybe you take the multidisciplinary approach and work with a therapist to address the mental health aspect of things.

 

And maybe you work with a life coach on the personal development and self-awareness/self-discovery piece.

 

When you begin to learn, understand, and accept yourself for who you truly are (quirks and all) and what you truly need, you begin to equip yourself with the tools to help others both understand and respect you and your needs as well.

 

If you’re an empath who is looking to understand your Empath nature and needs, learn more about your personality type, set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…

 

Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!

4 Signs that you might have trust issues.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-9exi3-10c9ee2

Trust is something that most of us desire within our relationships.

 

But it’s something that’s not always present within the relationships that we have in today’s world.

 

Whether that’s with a romantic partner, loved one, co-worker, or friend…many of us determine which relationships we want to engage in, based on who we feel we can trust.

 

But if you’ve been hurt in the past, it can be  really tough to trust others.

 

Especially, if you’re an Empath.

 

Having the specific challenges that come with being an empath (such as, absorbing the energy and emotions of those around us, having a fear of conflict, finding it hard to trust others when your intuition tells you otherwise), all makes it that much harder to trust people.

 

As empaths and sensitives, we can sense what can’t be seen with the eyes. We typically get a good read on whether we can trust a person. But sometimes the water gets muddy and it’s hard to determine who we can and cannot trust.

 

Or maybe we’ve struggled with having people cross our boundaries in the past, so we’ve learned to put our walls up and we’re hesitant to let people in.

 

But when our guard is up, sometimes we don’t let the good things and the right people in. We miss out on opportunities that are actually empowering, soul-nourishing, and a good match for us.

 

If you’ve ever dubbed yourself as the, “I don’t trust people” person, I want you to know that trust can be developed and it’s necessary to build healthy, intimate, well-connected relationships.

 

Stick around for this podcast episode, where I’ll share 4 Common signs of trust issues.

 

If you’re feeling like you struggle with trust issues and you’re curious on how it’s holding you back in your relationships, look out for the next episode, where I’ll share some reasons why your trust issues are holding you back in your relationships.

 

If you’re an empath who is looking to understand your Empath nature and needs, set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-srnui-10c38b8

Attention to all of my recovering people-pleasers out there.

 

Have you been wondering about what you can do to stop the cycle of people-pleasing?

In this episode, we’re going to talk about how to stop people-pleasing while still being compassionate.

 

If you’ve ever struggled with people-pleasing and you’re wondering how to stop doing that while still staying true to your compassionate nature, then I’d love for you to stick around for this episode.

 

Let me know which of these new perspectives resonated with you the most! I’d love to continue the conversation on this topic.

 

P.S. If you’re ready to start making the inner changes necessary to stop people-pleasing and you’re an empath who is looking to set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…

7 Signs that you might be a people pleaser.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-mrhi3-10c079f

Is being a people pleaser all that bad?

 

I mean, isn’t it just being nice and agreeable?

 

Doesn’t it just allow you to get along with most everyone around you?

 

Or maybe it makes us feel generally liked?

 

And it probably makes you feel like you can avoid conflict as much as possible? Right?

 

Wrong.

 

Tough love coming at ya, my friend. Being a people pleaser is not what it seems.

 

According to heathline.com, “being a people pleaser goes beyond simple kindness and it involves editing or altering words or behaviors for the sake of another person’s feelings or reactions.”

 

The danger with people-pleasing is that you have to sacrifice parts of yourself to please or meet the needs of others.

 

When you people-please over a long period of time, it leads to burnout, exhaustion, resentment, and it really isn’t sustainable at all.

 

I mean, how long can we really keep this gig up?

 

How much longer are you going to give up your energy and time to please others?

 

How much longer are you going to betray yourself in order for others to “like you?”

 

If you’ve ever wondered if you might be a people pleaser, you won’t want to miss this podcast episode.

 

Stay-tuned for this episode where I’ll share 7 signs that you might be a people pleaser.

 

If you’re ready to start making the inner changes necessary to stop people-pleasing and you’re an empath who is looking to set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…
