Finding Your Voice with Dr. Doreen Downing [35]

7/11/2022
For many, speaking up, whether within your household, your family, your work, or even in public, is a challenge. Feeling heard may be a challenge that you face. Your voice and the confidence to bring it out is buried deep inside of you, but it's buried under decades of programming and conditioning. Dr. Doreen Downing knows this challenge all too well as a psychologist who herself had a fear of speaking in public. You can bring your voice out and make the positive changes you need in your...

Healing Isn't Linear [34]

Confidence is built by you [32]

No parent is full of unwavering confidence. It doesn't help that the programming and conditioning you experienced along your journey only added to decrease your confidence leaving you often times not feeling enough.

Hook, Line, and Unhook [30]

6/6/2022
As parents and people, it's hard not to get attached to the beliefs, thoughts and feelings that don't serve us and prevent us from showing up as your best self for your kids, loved ones, and dreams. It's easy to get hooked and pulled along against your will. But, much like what happens within our internal ecosystem, the same can happen "out there" in the real world. Sometimes you just need to slow down and take lessons from the unlikeliest of sources. So, are you ready to anchor up and let...

Your Northern Star - Values [29]

5/30/2022
I believe motivation is a weakness, well, relying on motivation. Like the tide, motivation comes and goes, but you never know when it will come back. So you can’t depend on it when you need it most. You need something more powerful. Something different. You need something else to guide you, like the northern star when you feel lost or stuck. You need to leverage conscious values. Let’s Go!

5/23/2022
Do you still hear your parents in your ear drilling into you that you need to practice? does that come out of you into the ears of your kids? Do you still heed your parent's advice and practise? or do you find yourself guilty of learning everything and not taking action? It's ok, it's not your fault. Well, not entirely. The harsh reality is that what defines you, will define them. So if you're not taking unwavering action and practicing what you need to do to heal along your journey and give...

Be your biggest cheerleader [27]

5/16/2022
There's a power you may have been giving away your entire life without you even knowing it. There's one lesson that took me a heck of a long time to learn along my journey.

Healing families during addictions [25]

5/2/2022
Addictions hit most families at one point and can come in many forms. The addicts tend to get the most attention, but what often gets overlooked is the family.

In this latest instalment of the interview series From Science to Woo (and everything in between), we talk to addiction specialist Candace Plattor, who you may have seen speak at TedX BearCreek Park. Candace is an amazing support for families of...

Boundaries out of love [24]

4/25/2022
This week's show is not a standard episode, so please accept my apologies. This episode is me at my most raw and vulnerable. I debated whether or not to post this episode after I recorded it, but, in the end, I decided to do so because to grow, you must learn to let go. There is a lot of my story on my journey through life, so this episode won't be for everyone. However, I do believe that there's a lot of value in this episode for those who have been or are forced to make tough decisions in...

Unlearn to relearn [23]

4/18/2022
The situations we found ourselves in during our youth teach us many things, both positive and negative. But for many of us, many of the lessons we should have learned through our journey from those closest to us were never taught. Because of this, many of us struggle with issues that we’re not proud of, such as anger, struggles with self, overwhelm, and struggle to learn things we may have never truly experienced, such as forgiveness, empathy, and gratitude. But just because we learned...

Break Through The Wall And Be Free[22]

4/11/2022
There is an inherent need that all of you require, but for many, this need has been blocked off from you along your journey, brick by brick—a need for freedom. From an early age, you face the decisions and control by others along your journey that prevent you from having the freedom you need. The freedom to chase your dreams, make your own decisions, and experience trial and error, all because others believe they know better for you. This programming and conditioning may likely still be...

Do you find that fear keeps you from living the life you want and making the changes you want to make? Being the parent you want to be? Maybe fear is keeping you stuck? How do you calm it?
