[AMY SAYS] EP#448 - Boundary Deep Dive, Part 2

6/20/2022
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have undoubtedly heard the notion of “setting boundaries”, but have you ever wondered exactly what that means? Or maybe you drummed up the nerve to tell someone (like, your mom, boss, or bestie) how you really felt about something only to be blatantly ignored? (Or worse… not even taken seriously.) How do you actually go about establishing boundaries that are clear, respected, and adhered to? It’s hard enough to broach a challenging topic with...

[AMY SAYS] EP#447 - Boundary Deep Dive, Part 1

6/13/2022
If you’ve hung around these parts for awhile, you know that I love to GO OFF about how to establish and enforce a boundary. Of course, this is super helpful when you have a solid understanding of your boundaries, but what’s one to do if you have no fucking clue what your boundaries even are!? I mean… how do you even figure that out? Where to start? If you’ve ever found yourself wondering the same thing, you certainly are not alone. Recently a PODiance member reached out to me with this...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#446 - Leaving Religion, Coming Out as Queer, + Dealing with Family with Kara Barr

6/6/2022
Our Spiritual Self is perhaps one of the most sacred and precious pieces of our personal identity. Yet, so many of us have had the ideas, concepts, and beliefs of our families of origin impressed upon us without much room for questioning or critical thinking. And if one dares to question the ideology, they are often met with severe shame and chastisement. I have met so many folks who are beginning to untangle what they truly believe and how that differs from the way they were raised. And...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#445 - Leaving a Cult + Finding a New Spiritual Identity with Lopa van der Mersch

5/30/2022
Ever wonder how folks who end up in a cult actually, um… end up in a fucking cult? Certainly they must be highly gullible or dying for approval or just simply not that smart, right? Not exactly. Let me ask you this… Have you ever had a relationship you stayed in a bit too long because it started out so great and you kept fighting for it waaaay past the point of toxicity? Or have you ever stayed in a negative work environment and allowed abusive coworkers or bosses make you question your...

[AMY SAYS] EP#444 - Identity Work: 4 Ways to Understand + Honor Who You Are

5/23/2022
If you’ve hung out with me for any length of time, you’ll know that I am often encouraging folks to stop identifying with monikers that feel disempowering. For instance, if you want to get more shit done, you probably should stop calling yourself lazy. Or if you want to knock it off with the people-pleasing already, it’s time to stop saying, “I’m such a people-pleaser”. When we start statements with “I am…” or “I’m so…” we inadvertently cement the very characteristics we want to distance...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#443 - Identity: Becoming Who You Want to Be with Sara Dean

5/16/2022
If you’ve been hanging out with me for any length of time, you are likely a person who gives a shit about growing and developing and becoming the person you truly want to be. But, what does that actually look like? What does it really mean to actively work toward a more evolved version of yourself? What if you are so stuck in a cycle of working, taking care of everyone else, putting out fires, rinse, repeat and have no idea what you actually enjoy or really want? It can be so easy to get...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#442 - Understanding + Cultivating Intimacy with Allana Pratt

5/9/2022
What if I told you great intimacy was fully possible for you… even if you’re totally single. Wait… what!? I know, I know. Here’s the deal, my friend: intimacy is so often seen through only a sexual or romantic lens, but intimacy is simply about deeply, truly knowing. Seeing. Hearing. Understanding someone deeply. And, that means you can have a fully intimate relationship with yourself. With or without deep love from another. And, that doesn’t have to mean you don’t desire love from someone...

[AMY SAYS] EP#441 - What to Do When You are Desiring Intimacy but Fearing Vulnerability

5/2/2022
Ever find yourself desiring deep, rich connections with your partner or your friends and family but have a hellova time letting your guard down? Maybe you even find yourself craving deep intimacy but you’re absolutely terrified to really “be seen”. I mean, isn’t it just safer to stay walled up? Well… if the other party was vulnerable first… maybe then it would be safe. Maybe. Why is it so damn hard to be vulnerable? If you’ve found your mind spinning with the same questions, you are...

[TOOL] EP#440 - Working with Your Inner Child + Attracting Love with Veronica Grant

4/25/2022
If you have spent any time in the dating scene as of late, you know navigating those waters can be murky as hell. So what is one to do if you want to attract meaningful, rich, connected love in your life? Like, where the fuck are those folks? The ones who do the work on themselves, who understand their wants and needs, and who can actually use their god-damned words!!? Since I’ve been hangin’ out with Mr. Smith for nearly a quarter century, I thought it would be helpful to dial up an expert...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#439 - Exploring Love Addiction and Attachment Styles with Giovanna Capozza

4/18/2022
If I had a dollar for everytime I’ve heard someone express feeling unworthy simply because they are single, I would have, like, so many dollars. Seriously. Our society has a way of glorifying coupledom that leaves many folks feeling like finding “the one” is the sole/soul purpose of life. It doesn’t help that our media (I’m looking at you, Disney) tells girls that they will magically be saved one day and that their lives can finally begin once they fall in love. So, then we enter our...

[AMY SAYS] EP#438 - Supporting Your Body Love Journey (and What to Say to Others Who Don’t)

4/11/2022
In the nearly fifteen years I’ve been working in the personal development space, I have to say that one of the most recurring challenges I see women face is reckoning with changes in their bodies and what that means for their sense of self-worth. Unless you were magically able to escape the messages we are inundated with in our patriarchal society, it’s likely that you’ve had to navigate the constant, relentless, and radically unforgiving demand placed on our bodies to be perfect. And,...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#437 - Understanding Body Love and Body Image with Summer Innanen

4/4/2022
When I was a little girl, I remember my super evangelical, conservative mama telling me, “There’s this sinful notion out there that if something feels good, you should do it.” I’m sad to say this was one of the first messages I received that all things pleasurable were actually of the devil. I shit you not. Of course this message certainly applied to sex and drinking and other debachery [she says sarcastically], but this message was also super harmful around the pleasure derived from food....

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#436 - The Truth about Body Positivity with Dr. Lexie Kite

3/28/2022
If you operate in a femme body or identify as female, it’s highly likely you’ve found yourself contending with a litany of body image “issues”. I put issues in quotes because the things that we worry about, and subsequently own as our “issues”, are purposely manufactured to commodify and exploit our bodies. In essence we’re programmed to have “issues”. They’re given to us. For example, we used to never worry about having body hair. Like, not even a thing. Then, Gillette pops up like, “Hey,...

[AMY SAYS] EP#435 - Understanding and Breaking the Stress Cycle

3/21/2022
One. More. Thing. One more thing and you may just lose your god-damn mind. If one more person asks something of you… If one more task gets added to your to-do list… You may just Lose. Your. Shit. We’ve all been in this crazy-ass-stressed-the-fuck-out place where we become, uh-hem, a little less than the best version of ourselves. We scream at our kids when they need something minimal. We lash out at our spouse, or friend, or co-worker when they are just trying to help. In essence, we become...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#434 Understanding and Navigating Stress with Dr. Mariza Snyder

3/14/2022
It’s no secret that our capitalist society places extreme value on how much we can produce and if we’re not producing, then we simply aren’t “enough”. We’re not worthy. We fucking suck. The message that many of us recieve is that we must constantly hustle, hustle, hustle in order to be valuable. You want to get ahead in business? You have to burn the candle at both ends. You want to have a family and run a business? Get ready for zero sleep. And constantly taking care of everyone else except...

[AMY SAYS] EP#433 - Owning (and Advocating for) Your Personal Hierarchy of Needs

3/7/2022
Many times when you are feeling either physical or emotional discomfort, it’s a huge indication that there is a need you have that isn’t being met. For example, let’s say you’ve been feeling a sense of sadness, disconnection, and loneliness and when you dig a bit deeper behind that emotion, you realize you’ve really been needing connection and belonging. Time to reach out to the bestie you haven’t talked to in awhile. Or maybe you’ve noticed that your workplace leaves you constantly...

[DIAL AN EXPERT] EP#432 - Honoring Your Needs (And What-The-Hell That Means) With Mara Glatzel

2/28/2022
How many times have you silenced yourself from expressing how you truly feel to someone because you fear coming across as needy? Maybe you worry what your partner may say if you find yourself needing more alone time. Or perhaps you think your over-achieving sister will slam you in front of the fam and call you lazy if you take the time you truly need to rest and recharge. Like, god-forbid you actually honor the fact that literally every human being has needs. Not to mention we have a...

[AMY SAYS] EP#431 - Understanding + Working with the 4 Communication Styles - Part 2

2/21/2022
You get super jelly that your partner gets to have extra time off work, so you say (in a snarky-ass tone), “Wow. Must be nice to have so much free time”. Or maybe a work group you’re a part of is trying to decide how to handle a specific project and instead of voicing your true thoughts you say, “We can certainly do it your way” and mutter under you breath, “And good fucking luck with that.” What we have here, folks, are two examples of the Passive-Aggressive Communication Style. Everyone’s...

[Amy Says] Ep#430 - Understanding + Working With The 4 Communication Styles - Part 1

2/14/2022
Someone does something that really bothers you, but you’d rather pull your own teeth out than have a confrontation… so you just stay quiet. Or maybe your family is so damn aggressive that you find it easier to hide in the shadows instead of “rocking the boat”. If you weren’t properly taught how to advocate for your own wants, needs, and opinions [spoiler: none of us were], it’s likely that you find yourself falling into one of the less-than-effective communication styles. Research has shown...
