Think Out Loud With Me

Health & Wellness Podcasts

Hi friends! Welcome to THINK OUT LOUD WITH ME, a chat-cast produced, hosted, and humbly offered by yours truly, Natalie P., from my neck of the woods to YOU…in YOURS. I’m taking full advantage of a Universally-accepted, irrevocable license to be curious, and held by every single one of us to engage others in constructive and enlightening conversation. After years of internal chatter, white boards full of wondering, logs of silent suffering, and physical and mental close calls, I’m exhausted keeping it all together by myself. THINK OUT LOUD WITH ME is my own search for Self, and the clarity, connection, community, and congruence I know I'll discover in the stories and perspectives and beauty of others in search of the same. In so doing, if I help you find your voice…ignite your curiosity…nudge you just a bit in your own favor…well, shit. I’d like that. I’d like that a LOT. Thanks for listening.

E36: TOLWM + Chrysta Bairre x Rich in Purpose, Pride, and Grace

6/14/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! The work and commitment to the details of self-awareness, self-love, self-regulation, self-management, and anything SELF…these details have been of great importance to me over the last many years. As I’ve met and been mentored and connected with others with the same priority of growing emotional intelligence and mental agility, I am amazed at the wisdom, compassion, creativity, and commitment to a greater good those in my growing circle of humans have. We are here to help others. We are surrounded by beautiful people eager to partner with us to heal, thrive, and expand our potential. I’m excited to introduce you to Chrysta Bairre, my guest with her own unique and fantastic gifts of giving and supporting others. Chrysta is an advocate for herself and others. As a child she grew up in poverty primarily in the Denver area, surrounded by family members with mental illness and addiction, while her own non-apparent disability went unrecognized and undiagnosed. A queer woman with several disabilities, she fought to get the help and support she needed to thrive, and became a voice for unseen and under-served people like herself. Today, Chrysta is a career coach, speaker, and author, and through her leadership as founder of Live Love Work and She Goes High, she helps women create balance, show up in their brilliance, advocate for themselves, and find happiness in work and life. Her book, Beautiful Badass: How to Believe In Yourself Against the Odds, was published in 2020. We have an emotional conversation.

E35: TOLWM + Sosamma Samuel-Burnett x Responding to Fear With Courage, Compassion + Voice

5/31/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! To React or Respond is today's question. At first blush, React and Respond feel similar in meaning, right? Your thesaurus will tell you they are synonyms for each other, and I’m sure we've all used the words interchangeably at some point. But if you’re a communications nut like I am, semantics matter, and a lot is going on between these two words that has me curious. My guest is a woman I have come to know and respect for her deep commitment to responding to the world around her with love, compassion, and pursuit of justice. Deciphering her role in seeking justice in the face of fear at an early age, Sosamma Samuel-Burnett is the founder of G.L.O.B.A.L. Justice, a nonprofit in Loveland, Colorado, that works to inform, impact, inspire, and provide education and advocacy on local, national, and international justice issues. ⚖️ Justice: loving when it's hard 🚦 Human trafficking: in everyone's backyard 🪨 Hard stuff: talking about difficult topics 📖 Sosamma's story: on the shoulders of beautiful humans 👩🏽‍🏫 Being a teacher: incubating a future of intention 🏠 Micah Place: connecting for community, culture, and justice 🤝🏻 Of course, you should: experiencing Sosamma and G.L.O.B.A.L. Justice We are hummingbirds doing our part. If just one person hears and takes action, and moves in their own life with a sense of compassion and justice because of what Sosamma and I share together, we will have succeeded.

E32: TOLWM + Lisa Cheny-Philp x In Death, Grief and Joy

5/11/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! I found my way here to connect by the water and share space with a beautiful human, Lisa Cheney-Philp. Lisa is Visionkeeper of Women of the Water. She serves as a death doula, grief guide, shamanic practitioner, creative facilitator, artist, and river guide. Lisa belongs to the world as one who rewrites history, one who dwells in river canyons, and one who dreams of the river meeting the sea. As the founder of Women of the Water, she braids together her skills, training, and lived experiences to help us remember the ways and wisdom of water so we can well-tend experiences of death, dying, grief, loss and love and restore Life for generations past, present and future. Lisa has been embedded in Colorado communities and watersheds for over 20 years and currently calls Fort Collins, Colorado, and the Poudre River watershed home with her husband and daughter. Lisa and I have a beautiful exchange about our personal rivers, the beauty of death, our capacity to experience joy and grief in endings of all kinds, be they life being over, or a relationship, a job, a season, a significant move, or other upheaval in life, major or otherwise. Endings happen every day, and with awareness and openness, we can indeed give and receive the sacred tending needed to alchemize grief into relief. And joy. Listen in. Lisa's voice and energy are welcoming and sweet, and she is exactly where she needs to be in her role on this planet. Lisa is open to connect and commune by the water with you One-on-One, in Community Grief Circles or Nature Mandala Workshops, and even rowing and growing in unique River Experiences. Most recently, Lisa has created a space where questions and wondering can be exchanged for others to explore death, grief, and loss.

Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! I LOVE conversation around #mentalfitness, #mentalagility, #mentalmuscles getting stretched, limber, stronger, and ready to engage, flex and perform, no matter the situation.

E30: TOLWM + Silen Wellington x Experts of Our Own Experience

4/27/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! Every month is Mental Health Awareness Month, but in May, we turn up the volume and encourage the world to talk about mental health and offer hope for those struggling by highlighting options for help. In my local community, we have made great strides to support those suffering from mental health challenges, and Yarrow Collective is a brilliant example of the good that has grown in the last several years since a sales tax increase was passed to directly support Larimer County Behavioral Health Services. Silen Wellington is the Director and Peer Support Group Facilitator at Yarrow Collective, a nonprofit peer-run organization here in Northern Colorado offering mental health support ‘by and for’ people with lived experience of mental health and substance use struggles. With a team of other wonderful humans, they facilitate Yarrow's Alternatives to Suicide, Unity in Community for BIPOC, Genderqueer Peers (for transgender & Nonbinary folks), Chronic Illness & Disability Peer Support, and ECHO teen groups. All of their support groups are free, drop-in spaces. Silen and I share a meaningful cast discussing Peer Support and bits and pieces of our own journeys to becoming experts of our own experience, a freeing and empowering concept that promotes connection and community and co-creating inclusive, non-judgemental spaces where healing can happen. Peer support uses the power of relationships to create meaningful connections, learn and grow together, challenge and expand our worldviews, be accountable in our relationships, and move towards what we want to do or be. ~ Yarrow Collective Website: https://www.yarrowcollective.org Facebook and Instagram: @yarrowcollectivecolorado David Whyte's "Revelation Must Be Terrible" Support the Show.

E28: TOLWM + Andrea Dratch x Shootin' Straight Sh*t on Sobriety, Self-Love

2/25/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! I woke up with drinking on my mind. Not in the ‘I need a drink’ kind of way, but in the ‘wow, who was I when I drank, what was I hiding from, how did I survive myself, where did alcoholism start in my family…’ you know, the thoughts a lot of sober people have who are still shaking their heads, even after years of not drinking. When I talk about drinking, I talk about my own experience. I talk about my parents and their parents and how alcoholism ran on both sides of my family. I talk about how drinking was a severe problem for me, how I used it to deal with anxiety, how it fueled my anxiety, how it created anxiety in others…though I spent the first year or so of sobriety wondering how ANYONE in their right mind would ever drink, I’ve since concerned myself less with other people’s use of alcohol and concentrated on my own. I don’t stand in judgment of people who drink. Have I wondered if people have a problem with drinking? Sure. Do I continue to process my parents’ relationship with alcohol and how it affected me and my family? Yes. Does society’s obsession with alcohol concern me? Absolutely. But I choose to share my story and thoughts around drinking and addiction and related topics with others as a method of connection, not condemnation. I speak up for my own mental health with the hope that just one person will hear that they are worth every bit of strength they have to muster to not pick up the bottle. So, I hollered at someone I trust to shoot the sh*t straight with me, to talk sobriety without a filter. Andrea Dratch is an actor, producer, model, performer, muse, and, though she doesn’t list this in her bio, incredible influence as a woman stepping into her voice, her body, and her power. She trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City, and her remarkable talents can be seen in Tina Tina Bo Bina, Small Town Remedies, Reed Gig, Womanhood The Series, Saturn Rising, and Crash and Burn Stories. Here in Colorado, we see her gorgeous face as the spokeswoman for Woodley’s Fine Furniture, her family’s business since 1979. She’s raw, she’s authentic, and she’s a serious badass. Listen in for an extended episode of conversation. We spend a chunk on being sober in a world of glorified drinking, and we also spend time exploring Andrea's close relationship with her artist sister, Jacquelynn Perkins, who is hosting a solo show beginning April 12 at Artworks Center for Contemporary Art in Loveland and sharing with the world for the first time her Animal Bodies, which includes Self Portraits of My Sisters, as well as a live performance by Andrea as she introduces her own latest work, Shame on Me, a short film done in collaboration with Andy Carrasco.

E27: TOLWM + Rev. Dr. Ahriana Platten x Thresholds of Spirituality

2/18/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! I have much to unravel in my journey of spirituality, and it’s only been in the last few years that I have begun to soften and open and become genuinely available to the possibility that I can have my own relationship with Spirit, Source, possibly even, God. This lessening in resistance has come about as I have deliberately engaged myself in reading, conversations, and experiences with others who offer me alternate views and connections with a higher power, the greater universe, the miracle of energy, soul, and divinity. Indeed, this chat cast has become my medicine. Living a life marinated in Eastern and Western ideologies, Rev. Dr. Ahriana Platten is an evolutionary force in spiritual transformation. She bridges ancient wisdom with contemporary teachings, empowering people to use sacred ceremony to address life challenges. As a revered mystic and visionary, Ahriana is the compass for spiritual leaders aiming to reshape the world. Her influence resonates across a global community in 50+ countries. She’s an ordained Unity minister, a formidable high priestess in two esoteric traditions, and a mentor for spiritual entrepreneurs. A former Ambassador for the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Ahriana is the bestselling author of “Rites and Rituals, Harnessing the Power of Sacred Ceremony,” and “The Changing Story,” a children’s book. And in this episode, she’s thinking out loud with ME. I spent a beautiful hour listening to her voice, stories, and wisdom. Amidst tales of her own spiritual path, she weaves in gentle teaching moments and takeaways we can implement on our own terms. She reminds me of my worth and interconnection with humanity, each of us whole and holy in our beautiful ways. Please also consider A Soulfull World, and the many opportunities to experience Ahriana as a Priestess, Pastor, and Peacemaker. In addition to her Website, there is Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. I'm particularly interested in the upcoming Interfaith Mystery School and the chance to expand my understanding and cross a new threshold into spirituality.

E26: TOLWM + Jeremy Pajer x Our Sacred (and Wounded) Masculine and Feminine

2/10/2024
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! I’ve invited my guest, Jeremy Pajer, to think out loud with me about the deep and often polarizing topic of Masculine and Feminine Energy. I met Jeremy in his role as co-founder of Freedom Folk and Soul as he and his wife and co-founder, Stephanie, led a group of us through the Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation. I joined him, Stephanie, and several others on a journey of self-discovery to the pyramids of Teotihuacan, Mexico, and his teachings, touch, and genuine energy so greatly impacted me that I have journeyed two more times to Teo and spent countless hours with him in ceremony and discussion online and in person. Jeremy loves to share his wisdom, creativity, and playfulness as an Ordained Minister of the Healing Arts, Transformation and Master Breathwork Facilitator, Toltec Teacher, and Personal Freedom Coach. He brings his love and knowledge of firewalking, sweat lodges, Native American ceremony, Toltec wisdom, 12-Step traditions, and shamanic practices to people all over the world. Jeremy is MOST passionate about teaching people how to find their OWN wisdom and embrace their OWN humanity. He is practical and purposeful, yet gentle, kind, and authentic. He is a leader, teacher, and healer, yet he is forever a student, vulnerable, curious, and always evolving. Jeremy embraces both the Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine. I have witnessed him as both stable and free-flowing. He is determined and protective, and agile and nurturing. After setting up with some perspective of my own, I dive right into this cast and ask Jeremy to give us a little commentary on his understanding of masculine-feminine energies. A thought-provoking conversation blossoms from there, and I'm honored to let you hear. Jeremy is wonderfully busy with a calendar of experiences, breathwork, journeys, and points of connection. You can find him online at https://www.freedomfolkandsoul.org. You can find the beginning of the Shaman Heart series he is co-leading with his wife, Stephanie, at https://www.shamanheart.org.

Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! The morning’s routine of coffee and reading while the sun broke through was as peaceful and contemplative as usual. I have a carefully curated selection of newsletters and subscriptions that fill my inbox most days keeping me updated with headlines and inspiration. On this day, I found my guest’s latest post, and as I read it, I began buzzing. Like I could literally feel vibrations running through my body. So I pinged her. Oh my gosh, can we chat?!? She said yes, she'd love to. Kimberly Millstone is a writer, artist, and 5D astrologer. She pens Relevance of a Crone on Substack, and to begin our cast, I read to you what she shared that morning that sat me up and had me hungry to chat. The post is titled ‘WHO’S YOUR DADDY?’ and it serves as a beautiful sounding-off point for connection that I feel sure will resonate, especially around the topics of sourcing security in ourselves and choosing faith over fear. As the calendar turns to 2024, these are simple and powerful intentions we can set that have unbelievable implications for ourselves and the world. I hope you'll find a few minutes to listen in and hear for yourself.

E22: TOLWM + Madrone Kalil x Love in the Pain, Beauty in Death

12/20/2023
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! As Winter Solstice settles in, sit with me for a few minutes and meet Madrone Kalil, a beautiful human who commits her every day to creating a conscious community through mindfulness. She is the founder of Taproot Journeys, offering her clients opportunities to explore how their taproot has been nurtured or neglected and how they can grow one that is stronger. Having a strong taproot allows us to hold strong as our life shakes. Madrone teaches me more about having compassion for those who experience chronic pain, and what's different between pain and suffering.

E20: TOLWM + Seth Rohrer x Unconditional Love of Self, Sacrifice

5/7/2023
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! Seth Rohrer has fought hard for his own congruency. He has firsthand knowledge of the struggle with self to be real, to come to terms with half-truths and self-limiting beliefs, and literally take the leap, develop radical trust in the universe, and embrace life. I’m just getting to know him myself, and I’m grateful for the chance to do a little digging with him in this episode. His perspective is special. Seth and I discuss the balance of masculine and feminine in each of us, unconditional love, and the ongoing journey to joy and self-actualization. He'll tell you, "It is NEVER selfish to choose your heart first." Sacrificing the old for the real can be incredibly scary and painful, and the fear of the unknown thwarts most people's progress, but the hardest truth you'll fight for is YOUR OWN. You'll enjoy his voice and his thoughts and guidance. Consider joining Seth and his beautiful wife Angel in the Bytes Of Light Den where you will find love, support, and assistance as part of a pack that celebrates your awakening to new gifts, applauds newfound awareness, and encourages you to bring your fears into the light of their safe container. If you are ready for more focused one-on-one work, Seth is happy to assist you in rediscovering your inner power and your personal truth. And guys, you can join Seth on social media and check out his website to see how he can be of higher service to you in further creating your beautiful story of life.

4/13/2023
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! Meet Kelli Murbach, a modern-day human, reclamation coach, word wrangler, and celebrant. Kelli believes we shift and change our lives by rewriting our stories so that they encompass and acknowledge the whole truth of our lived experience. With intuition and care, Kelli wields the tools garnered in a multiplicity of spaces, including trauma recovery coaching, somatic coaching, social work, improv, and engineering realms, to hold space while others transform into who they want to be. Kelli and I think out loud about a recent shame spiral in which I found myself, specifically using her Life Support Paradigm as a roadmap. We chat about the power of words, and what's not selfish about supporting yourself in living your best life. Gosh, I dig the connection I have with Kelli. I hope you'll find reason to experience her in real-time by connecting with her online via the following links: Website: http://secularshepherdess.life/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/secularshepherdess/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lifesupportparadigm/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SecularShepherdess/ Support the Show.

E17: TOLWM + Kim E. x The Beauty of Healing Ways

3/29/2023
Ooh! Send me a text! How fun is that?! There's a saying, “Your mind is like an unsafe neighborhood; don't go there alone.” On my recent journeys to Mexico, I found a sister to hold my hand as I continue to walk in mine. She’s my guest in Episode 5. Kim Eden is an Intuitive Empath, PSYCH-K® Practitioner, Reiki Master, NLP Practitioner, Holistic Herbalist, Hypnosis Practitioner, and Life Coach. But these, as she says, are just labels. The reality is that Kim is an energetic being having a human experience. Kim grew up on a rural desert farm in southern Arizona. She spent most of her childhood lost in her imagination. The open desert was her playground; her best friends were her horse, dogs, goats, and cats that called the farm home. Growing up, she’ll tell you she was always the oddball and outcast. She saw the world differently, even at a young age. She could see the energy that flowed into everything. She realized she was called to help and could hold that space for others. Kim does not believe that one modality will heal everything. This belief has led Kim to learn different modalities. For over 25 years, she has been working on her spiritual development. She has attended courses at Arthur Findlay College to study mediumship and psychic development and has numerous certifications and additional training in holistic modalities, energy psychology, and energy work. She has traveled to learn with shamans, Maestros, and healers throughout North and South America. She is a perpetual student of the world. In 2020 Kim opened Peaceful Path. Through her private practice, she works with individuals to break free of their limiting beliefs, does energy healing, and conducts shamanistic ceremonies to help with additional spiritual support a person may need. In Chapter 11 of Shaman Heart: Sacred Rebel, the book hitting the shelves in May in which we will both be featured with two dozen others including lead authors Stephanie Urbina Jones and Jeremy Pajer, Kim tells a story called "The Broken Path," and shares very special medicine for freeing oneself from limiting beliefs. Listen in as we think out loud about the beauty of healing, the paths we walk, and the relief we find when we lean into our shadows for the lessons and love we have for ourselves. Kim can be found just outside Nashville, TN, for in-person work, or online at https://peacefulpath.net/ or Kimeden@Peacefulpath.net. Follow her at facebook.com/peacefulpathinnerillumination and keep an eye out as she develops her YouTube channel at youtube.com/@peacefulpath1866 #peacefulpath #plantmedicine #healing #selflove #selfwork #ayahuasca #psychek #nlp #holisticherbs Support the Show.
