Forgiveness as an act of self-love w/ host Melissa D. Barry

5/31/2022
This month we’re taking advantage of this new moon right now to clean the slates and start anew stronger than ever but in order to move on healthily and efficiently forgiveness is key. To me, forgiveness is an essential part of your growth, it’s about giving that grace to yourself by letting go of a past painful experiences. Freeing yourself from the poison of anger, bitterness, resentment, and any other low vibration feelings. It’s about reflecting and looking at things from a higher...

Finding freedom from within w/ host Melissa D. Barry

4/30/2022
Now that the travel restrictions seem to have been lifted in most countries, I asked myself if travel, or money, or the lack of ties or commitments, or any external element for that matter - is it what we define as true freedom? To me, freedom is about liberating your mind first- which means liberating yourself from the inside. Liberating ourselves from our mental prison. We can be free from an external perspective but are we free inside of ourselves? Freeing yourself from the confines of...

Performance productivity culture: the depression-anxiety trigger? w/ host Melissa D. Barry

3/31/2022
Let’s talk about a specific modern reality that most of the time hinders our best self. Yes, I’m talking about the one and only star of capitalism (right after money): performance productivity! The one which is often the root cause of depression, anxiety, imposter syndrome, self-sabotage, and many more mental and physical health issues. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being busy but here I’m talking about the kind of busi-ness that becomes extremely unhealthy yet the kind that is...

A love letter to Mother Earth w/ sustainability educator Meg Koch

2/28/2022
February the month referred as the “month of love”. This specific date … celebrations in general, can be seen as a good reminder to keep on putting out intentional efforts throughout the whole year towards that something that you’re celebrating on that day, to keep that energy all year around. Today, I’ll be touching on a subject very dear to me that I’d like to show more love for - even if I haven’t been vocal about it on here yet. That’s why I wanted to do an episode on showing love and...

Living your soul purpose in 2022 & beyond w/ host Melissa D. Barry

1/30/2022
I did promise you a last episode on Ayurveda: aligning your soul with Ayurveda to complete the Ayurveda mind-body-soul series. I decided to switch it up by simply taking this Ayurvedic concept of following your Dharma aka your soul purpose in this life and yet still keep my promise. What a better way to start off 2022 than assessing our purpose? Do you think we all have a role to play in our lives? Dharma is a Sanskrit term used in Ayurveda that is generally translated as “life purpose”....

2021 reflections w/ host Melissa D. Barry

12/30/2021
I usually like taking the last week of December as a good time to take a breath and reflect on the last 12 months, step back, slow down to mindfully close this chapter before jumping into the new year. You perhaps feel the same at this time. Inspired to look back, contemplate and evaluate what has been going on in your life, your experiences, challenges, choices, commitments and desires, and now reassessing if they're still aligned with your path, your growth or if the cycle is done and...

Shadow integration - The path to freedom, wholeness & authentic living w/ host Melissa D. Barry

11/30/2021
As Jung wrote, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” Just like mentioned in the previous episode "Shadow self - Transmuting the unconscious into the conscious" shadow work is about bringing onto the forefront of our mind what has been hidden for the longest time with the aim of being free from hinderances and become whole again to live up to your true nature and potential. Shadow work definitely helps remove any impediments from the...

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate” - Carl Jung - psychiatrist who revolutionized the field of psychology. Fall, Halloween, Scorpio season is here so what is better than diving deep into the shadow of life. To be aware, acknowledge, accept and embrace our unconscious. To shed light onto our shadow self.

The art of letting go w/ host Melissa D. Barry

9/30/2021
Taking a little break from the Ayurveda series before the last episode of it and surfing back onto the solo rant wave. So here I am talking my thoughts out loud to y’all - once again! My today’s inner reflection is about the art of letting go. Something that we all need some more practice in, I believe. We get so attached to things, to people, to places, even unhealthy habits that it often becomes detrimental to our mental health or just our overall wellbeing. That probably stems from the...

Aligning your mind with Ayurveda w/ Dr Siva Mohan - Part 2: Self-assessing your well-being

8/31/2021
What is a healthy body without a balanced/healthy mind? There is no denying that the two are inherently linked together. The mind has a tremendous influence on our overall health. That's what I want to keep on dissecting today: how to heal our minds on all levels from the subconscious to the superconscious part of the brain with the three regulatory principles of the body, mind, and soul in Ayurveda. If you missed part 1 of this episode "True mind-body wellness", check it out first so this...

My obsession with the mind continues. I just find its abilities, depth, and power so incredible and fascinating. As a continuation of my Ayurveda series: A journey to healthy living with Ayurveda medicine, we’ll explore the mind through an Ayurvedic stand-point. We previously talked about aligning your body with Ayurveda medicine. But what is a healthy body without a balanced healthy mind? The mind has a tremendous influence on our overall health.

Aligning your body with Ayurveda medicine w/ Dr Sheetal Ajmani - Part 2: Ayurvedic nutrition

6/30/2021
As I like experimenting with different things, I felt that it was time for me to give Ayurveda a try. Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been incorporating few Ayurveda practices here and there. I wanted to take you on my discovery journey of this ancient holistic medicine. Ayurveda medicine is so many things in one. I’ve got so many questions.

Conscious Communication w/ Attachment style coach Taryn Newton-Gill

4/28/2021
In this world there is a lot of miscommunication. Words matter, they’re important and powerful. Like we discussed in the last episode about the subconscious, words are crucial when you talk to yourself. But what about using clear and effective communication that kindly expresses your thoughts, needs, and feelings to others too? What's our why when communicating? How does our communication style impact our relationships ? Are we anchoring in consciousness when it comes to communicating with...

Accessing the subconscious mind w/ Transformational therapist Kameka Smith

3/31/2021
"To shift your life in a desired direction, you must powerfully shift your subconscious." - Kevin L. Mitchell author. The famous philosopher, Sigmund Freund, in the 19th century, actually ranked the 3 states of mind: the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, and the unconscious mind. Today we'll focus on the 2nd one: the subconscious mind. If you have been a regular listener, you know how passionately intrigued by the power of the mind, I am. Looking into neuroscience, psychology, and...

Self-Care for Your Human Design Profile w/ Human Design expert Allison Unruh

2/14/2021
It's Valentine's day! Yep, we're back at it again and while I love celebrations, to me there is no better way to celebrate love than starting with self-love. I did an episode on self-love last year, go check it out if you missed it. So to follow up, I now want to focus on self-care. We should love and care for ourselves everyday but I see Valentine’s day as a reminder of that in case we’ve been caught up in our everyday life, loosing our love and care for ourselves in the process. But the...

30 conscious living lessons for my 30th w/ host Melissa D. Barry

11/30/2020
I finally crossed the other side and left my twenties behind me. Celebrating your big 30s during a worldwide pandemic and under full lockdown is not ideal and definitely not what I expected when looking forward to this pivotal moment in my life. Nonetheless, it gave me the opportunity to have this calm and slowness to reflect back on my past. So I felt like starting off this new decade of my life by reflecting and sharing 30 lessons I’ve learnt and continue on learning every single day -...
