episode 46

MillanaSnow.jpg

I am so, so grateful that you’re joining me today because oh my goodness, this episode is truly special. I take extra pride in my editorial calendar and choose each guest for the show very, very carefully and therefore I love every episode but this one surprised me in the best way possible.

I knew Millana Snow was inspiring, magical, mystical, REAL, true, passionate and a woman I needed to have on Manifest This! but after basking in her radiance for just over an hour while we recorded this episode over Skype (we weren’t even in personal and I picked up on her magical) she blew me away.

Millana Snow is model and actor for over 12 years, a Reiki healer, a meditation teacher, an entrepreneur and Founder of Serene Social, SereneBook.com and the new WellnessOfficial.co; an interactive online marketplace that features the best-of curated practitioners and brands from the global wellness community. And her passion is to connect, empower and support others to heal themselves by expanding consciousness in their everyday lives. Millana, has always lived in a world of contrast, spending her childhood reading the Bhagavad Gita and her tarot cards, she went on to the world of fashion and entertainment becoming the winner of Project Runway and working with clients like YSL, Cover Girl, L'Oreal and Gant as well as working behind the scenes in publishing, public relations and creative direction for VIBE, Uptown Magazine, Vespa and Porsche. Today Millana has integrated these worlds by leading workshops, meditations and talks at NYU, Syracuse, Summit LA17, Soho House, Lululemon, Alexander Wang and more.

In our conversation we talk about her childhood, how she found spirituality and learned about her gifts, what happened after she discovered the Law of Attraction, how she manifested her win on Project Runway and every job she’s had since and we also go quite deep on how to accept yourself, embrace your shadows, and how to allow yourself to just FEEL.

This episode is truly amazing, and I’m so honoured to share it with you.

 

“I hang up the phone and I hear in my Spirit, you are the winner of Project Runway.”

Ellen Fisher on Unschooling and Following Your Heart

episode 45

ellen fisher.jpg

I want to take a moment to deeply thank you for all of your feedback and love on my special birthday episode that I shared last week – 33 Things that I’ve Learned in 33 Years – so many of you told me that my words brought you to tears and that means the world to me.
I was talking to one of my close girlfriends Alexandra Dawson, former podcast guest (episode 10) about how I wished I had included one more lesson and she suggested that I share it today as a good luck lesson “you always need an extra for good luck!” she said.

So here it is…

Appreciate your body. Love your body. LIVE in your body. Respect your body.

This is one that I’m always working with. I constantly find myself looking back at photos of myself thinking “I looked so good then…” or “wow..I was so fit then..” when in reality, I’m still wearing the same clothes, they fit the same…the shape of my body may have changed a little here and there but for the most part, I look the same now as I did in the photographs that I always look back on. It’s my mind that sees someone different in the mirror. And here’s the thing – my body made a baby, birthed a baby medication free and has breastfed her now for almost 21 months. My body healed itself naturally after being burnt in a house-fire. My body has overcome an eating disorder. The list goes on and I’m sure you have similar stories about what your amazing body has done for you. Because our bodies work SO HARD every single day for us so something that I’m constantly working on, my “lesson for good luck” is to constantly love and accept the ebbs and flows of my body as it evolves with time and life.

Let’s talk about today’s guest – Ellen Fisher.
Ellen is such an effortless force. I started watching her YouTube videos years ago and fell in love with her vibrant, healthy, natural lifestyle in Maui Hawaii. Sharing now with an audience of half a million people, Ellen’s become a world-wide resource and role model for veganism, gentle parenting, home birthing and breastfeeding. In our chat we talk about how she and her husband Andrew manifested their move from California to Hawaii, why they did it and how they made it happen, we talk about unschooling and Ellen’s thoughts on the traditional school system, we talk about raising vegan children and what to do if you have a picky eater and we also talk about how social media has helped Ellen build up her confidence and improve her relationship with herself.

 

"Living is learning.”

 

In This Episode We Discuss...

+ why Ellen & her family decided to move to Hawaii from California and how they made it happen
+ tips Ellen has for others who want to move somewhere else
+ how Ellen has achieved financial freedom for her and her family
+ Ellen’s social media career
+ breastfeeding & milk sharing
+ our feelings around education
+ unschooling and allowing children to be ‘free thinkers’
+ raising children vegan
+ tips on getting your children to eat more fruits and vegetables
+ outside negativity and how to overcome it

 

"I really believe that we are all born vegan in our mind and in our hearts.”

Demetra Penner on Connecting to Earth Mother and Unblocking Financial Abundance

episode 40

demetra.jpg

Today I’m chatting with Demetra Penner, creator of all potions for Sweet Spirit Apothecary, plant medicine expert, musician, mystical spiritual goddess and I love this conversation so, so much. Her words were and are like medicine to me.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t going to air this episode until June, we recorded it less than a week ago. When I made the decision to go down to one episode per week, I sat with the decision for a few days before sharing it with you and during that time I did some inner work. I know that when I am out of alignment my masculine energy becomes more prominent and it was this conversation with Demetra that helped me really realized that. It felt like she was sent straight from Spirit to me in the very right moment. So I had to air it right away because the words she shares today spoke straight to my heart, like medicine for my soul.

She shares about her life in her little cabin in the forest on the lake and how she and her finance found themselves living surrounded by nature, she talks about her life as a Spiritual woman and about how she’s been different from the moment she was born, she talks about plant medicine and how plants are aligned with our chakras, she talks about being so immersed in the Feminine as an eternal creator and at the end we talk about money – blocks around money, the energy exchange of money and how we both view money so differently now than we used to.

And she’s also doing a giveaway!

Demetra is so kind to share a $100 Sweet Spirit Apothecary giftcard to one lucky listener.

Overcoming Your Fear of the Spirit World

episode 37

1.jpg

Let's talk about the fear around spirituality, spirit guides, spirituality, space, time travel, aliens, all of it. At my Manifest This! Live! event, a woman came up to me and said "I love this stuff, I'm so attracted to all of this, I want to learn more about spirituality and wellness and my guides and my higher self and intuition, but I am so scared." She's not the first person to have told me this. I receive messages from quite a few women who share the same thing - that they're interested in these ideas so much but they're afraid to sit in stillness with themselves because they're afraid to hear messages from their guides.

I used to be afraid too and today I'm sharing how I worked through my fears and overcame them. 

IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS...

+ stories from my past when I was afraid of Spirit and channeling
+ why I actively turned my communication with Spirit off in the past
+ how I overcame my own fears on spirits, angels, guides, aliens, space, infinity and death
+ my explanation of "the big picture" 
+ ideas that I hope will help you overcome your fears as well
