Get Ready For 2020 with Astrologer Debra Silverman!
On today’s episode, Rachel is once again joined by expert astrologer Debra Silverman! If you are interested in astrology but overwhelmed by the amount of information out there, this episode is for you. Join Rachel and Debra as they answer all of your questions about astrology and how to apply it as a practice to improve your life.
How can we get to know ourselves and our personality traits better? Astrology will help you to understand yourself, your friends, your family and your partner. Learning about your astrological configuration gives you a permission slip to be EXACTLY who you are, the way you were born. Astrology helps you to define yourself, your purpose in life, and gives you a map (your natal chart) on how to navigate life!
Debra helps us to understand the meaning of the elements in astrology, sun, moon, and rising signs, and then leaves us with an astrological forecast for each sign for the year 2020. A cosmic episode not to be missed!
#MeToo, Yoga and Protecting Your Energetic Space
In this episode, Rachel is in Tulum on vacation with her family and trying to slow down. After receiving some interesting news and getting kicked off a magazine cover shoot after speaking up on the topic of #MeToo in the yoga world, Rachel does what she usually does: she speaks out for justice and stands with those who have been subjected to trauma.
This is Rachel’s mission in life, to use her platform and voice to spark real change in the world. Actually, this is all of our missions! We can all be of service in different ways in the world.
However, being of service takes energy, and Rachel shares a story of a defining moment in her life when she realized it was all too much. This episode can show you that to do good in the world, you have to make sure you are not spreading yourself so thin that you have no energy left for your own heart. Sometimes the universe is hitting us on the head with a big sign, and it’s important that we listen to it. Only by filling your own cup first will you be able to bring your best self to the world, and that is exactly what is needed.
How To Go From Hurting To Healing
Are you feeling hurt? Betrayed? Upset by the actions of someone close to you (or a perfect stranger)? Wondering how to get to the root of your emotional triggers? In this episode, Rachel talks about unpacking emotional wounds through the use of observing, recognition, holding space, therapy, and putting the pieces of the wounded puzzle back together again.
Don’t get lost in obsessing over other people’s actions. You can’t control what other people do - you can only control how you react what comes your way. Every time you feel hurt is an opportunity to move closer to healing.
Taking the time to hold space for your emotions, to express yourself openly, to observe and recognize your triggers can fully change your life. These wounds actually create our realities and are the source of the stories we tell ourselves. This episode will help you get past hurt, stop wasting energy on people who are stealing your energy and help you open up to feeling more compassion for yourself and the healing work you are doing.
Stop Minimizing Your Pain!
Are you carrying around pain, exhaustion, or moving through life from a wounded place? Soldiering on without giving yourself permission to feel? In this episode, Rachel speaks about how minimizing our pain actually creates more of it, and how holding space to feel and heal wounds (large and small!) actually can expand your capacity for compassion and service.
We are taught at a very young age to minimize our feelings, to act like everything is ok, and to hide from our pain. This episode will help you to reprogram your mind and heart to actually feel your pain, get to the root of your internal wounds, and give yourself permission to process negative emotions. Until we heal the wounds inside of us, the universe will keep creating similar situations until we consciously choose to change old patterns.
Pain can be transmuted into lightness of being. When you heal your wounds, you free up emotional space in the heart for compassion and the ability to heal others. This episode will remind you its ok to feel, help you to become more compassionate, and be of service to those who genuinely need it!
Conscious Entrepreneurship - The Art of Doing Business With a Heart
How do you find a balance between remaining authentic while manifesting abundance? Are you struggling to grow your business, or putting a lot of energy into something but not receiving the energetic return?
In this week’s episode Rachel reflects on the art of doing business from the heart, why you should be paid fairly for your efforts (including in the yoga industry!), and the energetic exchange of time, effort, and money. Having just released her own line of jewelry, Rachel shares her own early insecurities around money and how she found the confidence to trust her own intuition and move forward in her career.
Your vision, offerings, services, and businesses take inspiration, time, money and effort to create. Aiming to have an abundant life is not a shameful thing. Don’t let the fear of other people’s reactions hold you back! This episode will remind you that it’s ok to make money, to want abundance, to create something from the heart and put it out into the world of business and commerce.
