Q125 Being Rachel LaClair

What is Intuition? How do you write to it? Talk to it? Hear it? Today’s guest is a dear friend of mine and one of the most intuitive people I know. Well, we're all intuitive, but she has practiced using her intuition for so many years that I consider her an expert. I thought it would be fun for all of us to hear how she uses intuition in her life. I hope it inspires you to deliberately practice using yours. We give you some tips in this show which is Part One of our conversation.

I loved talking to Rachel so much we have a Part Two for you. In Part Two (Q126 released Thursday),  I talk directly to Rachel’s intuition. We had lots of fun playing in this way which is always a great reminder to me that life is for fun and joy; that practice is how you get better at things; and that you're always the one that knows what is right for you if you give yourself the space to listen.

Q124 Being Sarah Darrow

This week’s question: Do you not have enough time or do you not have enough energy?

 

Today on the show, I’m welcoming my dear friend Sarah. Sarah is proof to me that energy is more important than hours on the clock.

 

An artist, a wife and a mother, Sarah uses her days to advocate for her amazing son (who also happens to be low functioning, Autistic and is completely non-verbal...except listen in and you’ll hear HOW and WHY he spoke two words recently and what has made him turn into a completely different kid!). Sarah also creates a wonderful home for her brilliant daughter (who also happens to have Cerebral Palsy and was relatively recently diagnosed with Asperger’s).

 

Sarah seems to create time between hospital visits and blogging about her family for her blog “Our Spectrum of Love" to make clothes, yoga pillows and to cook all her meals for her family from scratch. Not to mention she takes regular bathes and is the first to say that self care is her first priority.

 

How? How? How? As far as I know, she has the same 24 hours that I have in a day, so why do I feel like she can do ten times as much as I can?

 

She’s here to share how she discovered it’s not about time. It’s about energy. You’ll learn how she got rid of toxins from food to candles. You’ll also learn what made her five year old son hug her for the first time a couple of days ago! (You may need a tissue. I did.)

 

Sarah’s story has such loving energy. We’re not here to promote any products or to tell you how to live your life. We’re not here as experts. What we are is two girlfriends talking and sharing stories to see if maybe someone out there needed to hear this for their own lives.

 

Oh, and did I mention that she lost 120 lbs in six months without working out. Yeah, you will want to listen to this conversation!

Sarah's Bio:

I am a stay at home mom of two wonderfully unique kiddos who face and overcome challenges on a daily basis.  We have two dalmatians that add to the day to day joy. I am a clean eating, essential oil loving, chemical free, primal paleo modern day hippy who lives in the moment and finds the beauty in things you wouldn't think to stop and find  the beauty in. I am an artist but not in the typical sense! I am a food stylist who shows just how beautiful healthy food can be for you. Mostly however I am a woman who really enjoys living life to it's fullest. Tomorrow is never promised ... moments are fleeting but living in the now enjoying the small things brings me joy.

“If your most ‘courageous self’ was running the show, what would you be doing differently?” This is the question our guest on the show today asks all of us to answer in her new book The Courage Habit- How to accept your fears, release the past and live your courageous life.

 

Kate Swoboda (aka Kate Courageous) helps us understand the Science behind fear so we can tap into the courage within. I’ve often said courage  is a muscle we must use to strengthen. Think of Kate like the best exercise plan you can imagine. So excited to share our conversation together and help you change your relationship with fear!
