Felicia Bender on Practical Numerology

episode 65

FeliciaEpisodeImage.jpg

I’ve loved numbers for a while and I’ve seen repeating numbers for as long as I can remember. 222, 333, 444 and 555 seem to be the most common numbers that pop up in my awareness on a daily basis although I see 11:11 quite often as well. On my recent trip to LA, I saw 1234 everywhere.
I’ve always known that these are messages from my guides re-affirming that I’m on the right track but I don’t know anything about numbers beyond that. And the topic of numerology was completely foreign to me so I was especially excited to interview Felicia Bender to learn all about it!

Felicia Bender, or the Practical Numerologist, as she calls herself, trained with Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui and Master Stephen Co to become a certified Pranic Healer™ before discovering her passion for numerology. She’s now the author of Redesign Your Life:  Using Numerology To Create the Wildly Optimal You and has two books forthcoming in 2018 – The Ultimate Guide to Numerology and Master Numbers 11, 22, 33:  The Ultimate Guide and is passionate about writing, counseling, teaching, and presenting ways to use numerology, spirituality, and intuition to understand ourselves and others on a deep level – to validate our life’s purpose and to develop tools to understand how to trust our own intuitive language.  She’s a contributor for The Elephant Journal, Numerologist.com, The Numinous, and many other media outlets.  She’s also the resident numerologist for AstroStyle.com.

 
 
 

“The universe is always attempting to help us no matter what.”

 
 

IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS…

+ Felicia’s spiritual reconnection
+ what our Life Path Number can teach us and how to figure out what our Life Path Number is
+ what my Life Path Number is and what it means for me
+ messages we receive from repeating numbers (11:11, 22:22, 333, etc.)

Connie Kaplan on Dreaming as a Spiritual Practice

episode 63

ConnieKaplanImage.jpg

Today we’re talking all about DREAMING – a topic that’s been highly requested to discuss on the show and I waited to approach it until I found the right person to do so with. Connie Kaplan is that person.

Connie Kaplan is a spiritual mentor who lives in Southern California. In late 1986 she was suddenly struck with a mysterious virus which rendered her almost helpless for two years.  During this time, unable to work and incapable of handling normal life circumstances, she experienced a profound spiritual transformation which altered not only her inner experience of life, but her outer expression of life.  As she puts it, ‘while she slept her life away, she dreamed herself awake.’

Since she returned to the “normal” world in the early 90s, Connie has devoted her life to sharing what she learned during this mystical awakening.She teaches dreaming as a spiritual practice and a unique form of theology, which centres around an understanding of each person’s life purpose.

 
 

“A lot of times, your dreams are not about you.”

 
 

In This Episode We Discuss…

+ dreaming according the lunar circumstances
+ how dreaming actually works
+ the kinds of dreams we have
+ how the woman’s womb is the dreaming organ
+ dreaming and our menstrual cycle
+ dreams and manifesting
+ dream circles

 
 

“The dream is the birth place of new life.”

Morgan Yakus is probably one of my biggest expanders and inspirations. Like really, I want to continue to RISE and build the success she’s built. She’s so kind, so genuine, so humble and leads from her heart centre. When we recorded this interview we talked for over two hours afterwards. I felt like I’ve known her forever and cannot wait to meet her in person one day.

Morgan is a 20 year fashion veteran and former owner of No.6 store in New York's Little Italy, she experienced everything she wanted to do before leaving fashion, including styling Lauryn Hill's for her Miss Education Tour, PR for Gucci and designing and curating vintage inspiration for many influential designers.

She has been listed top five practitioners by VOGUE to the fashion world and has hosted, spoken and taught at events in the U.S. and all over Europe, In Goop Health Conference, SXSW Wellness as well as held a monthly residency at the Soho House among others. With this work she has created hypnotic art experiences at The Sound Thought Festival in Glasgow, Scotland, Obonjan Island, Croatia and held a healing residency at the Ace Hotel in New York & CAP Beauty. Morgan has written for and has been featured in publications such as VOGUE, Elle UK, GOOP  French Glamour, Dutch VOGUE, Man Repeller, Well + Good, Mind Body Green, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Free + Native and more.

And she’s the woman who introduced me to the Akashic Records.

I'm So Excited to Share This With You

episode 61

PREPARE TO RISE AS YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF

I am so excited to announce my latest offering, “RISE: A Six-Week Reconnection to Your Divine Feminine Force.”

In the past six months, I have gained a sense of clarity that I’ve never had before. My ideas, ambition and creative output are focused and infinite. My bank account has never looked better. My manifestations rapidly actualize.

When I asked myself, “How did this happen?” I realized that it was because I began listening to my intuition.

OUR INTUITION IS OUR ENERGETIC CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSE, TO THE DIVINE.

When we hear or feel our intuition, it is our soul talking to us. When we act in alignment with our intuition we are reconnecting to the version of ourselves our soul is telling us to be. Our intuition can guide us to become the person our soul chose—our authentic self—before we were led astray by self-doubt, trauma or negative conditioning.

Like many of us, I found it hard to listen to my intuition. For many reasons, I would doubt, ignore or question what my intuition told me. I needed to do some major inner work to overcome these blocks and throughout this time I underwent a long process of reconnecting myself. What is reconnection? It is a journey of grounding, cleansing, healing and aligning which enabled me to Rise above my blocks and limiting beliefs and connect to my authentic self — the podcast host, the Akashic Records reader and healer, and the intuitive guide leading this course! It was nothing less than a complete transformation.

My journey of reconnection was not a straightforward path and I certainly didn't set out thinking, "I'm going to do all this hard inner work so I can hear my intuition telling me to start a podcast and read people's' Akashic Records." I had no way of knowing what was in store for me. I did it because I felt disconnected from myself and wanted the confidence and bravery to live my life for myself—whatever that looked like.

And now my journey has led me to share this process with you, because I am committed to helping women everywhere live their best life. 

This six-week online course is designed to help you mute the outside noise, overcome self-doubt, unblock self-belief, identify and reconnect to the most authentic version of yourself. Everything in the course—the rituals, meditations, intentions, activities—combines my experiences, stories, knowledge, and channeled direction from our most trusted guides, the Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones from the Akashic Records. At the end of the six weeks you will have the tools and rituals that you can use to heal and expand.

Take control of your life, access your unique authentic gifts, flow with your Divine Feminine Force, and RISE.

The course begins October 7, 2018.

 
 
 

“When we act in alignment with our intuition we are reconnecting to the version of ourselves that our soul is telling us to be.”

 
 

In This Episode I Discuss…

  • why I designed this course

  • what you can expect as a participant

  • who this course is designed for

“Our intuition can guide us to become the person that our soul chose - our authentic self.”

Nina Endrst on Overcoming Trauma and Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

episode 59

Nina_1.jpg

 

Today I’m talking to Nina Endrst. Nina and I connected over Instagram and it really was divine timing. I didn’t even really know why I was interviewing her other than I was drawn to her, and I’m so glad I followed that feeling because she’s so interesting and so inspiring.

Nina's upbringing deeply influenced her approach to wellness. Her own chronic health issues and childhood trauma prompted her to leave her job in fashion – and deepen her yoga practice which ultimately led her down the teaching path.

Nina believes in the healing power of stillness, love, and acceptance. She guides but more importantly empowers students to live in their truth and align with their soul purpose. She is a nurturer, certified yoga, meditation guide, reiki practitioner, writer and spiritual mentor.

Nina and I chat about the childhood trauma she experienced and how it affected her life growing up, her intuitive move to Mexico, how she found healing through  yoga, learning to accept and forgive, motherhood and mindfully raising children, Nina’s spiritual journey, how she works with the chakras and so much more.

 
 

“There’s a difference between moving past something and moving through it.”

 
 

In this episode we discuss...

+ the childhood trauma (sexual abuse) that Nina experienced and how it affected her life as she grew up
+ her intuitive move to Mexico
+ how she found healing through yoga

+ lessons in healing yourself

Purnima Chaudhari on Sharing Spiritual Gifts & the Transdermal Marma System

episode 58

purnima_chaudhari.jpg

I am SO EXCITED that you’re joining me today because today I’m interviewing my healer. And not just a healer, Purnima is an angel on Earth. I swear it.

I met Purnima a few months back at a Manifest This! LIVE event, she was in the audience and came up to say hello after but after she sent one of her clients to me for an Akashic Records reading, I booked a reiki session with her on a whim. I had no idea how transformative it would be for me and for my life.

Purnima is truly gifted. She is a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, Reflexologist, Reiki Master and Esthetician. She is also the current Manitoba Chair for Ayurveda Association of Canada. She describes herself as a lifelong learner and has received received teaching from world renowned Ayurvedic practitioner Vaidya R. K. Mishra of the Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda (SVA) lineage. From him, she learnt how to do nadi pariksha (pulse assessment) along with Transdermal Marma treatment. She did this treatment on me and I felt my soul elevate out of my body. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and it’s so special because only a few people in the world know how to do this.

Purnima currently offers Ayurvedic consultations and therapies based on her SVA training. She educates people on how to cook authentic Ayurvedic tridoshic meals and the importance of food combinations and use of spices. Along with four seasonal Ayurvedic retreats and biannual Ayurvedic home detox, she regularly offers Ayurvedic treatments and energy healings with Reiki and IET. She has performed six distance reiki treatments on my daughter Ivy and you’ll hear in our conversation how transformative this has been for both Ivy and our family.

This episode is so special. 

 
 
 

“We are all one, we are connected. We can help each other and we have to, there is no other way.”
