EP 232. Zarak Fatah: Finding Your Soul’s Geographical Home

“When you have that time and space to really reflect and sit in your s**t, to be able to actually be there with it and feel it, sit in it, process it, you quickly develop your boundaries, your parameters, you know what you won’t do in the future.”

 

What if there was a place in the world where you could recalibrate to your soul’s calling – AKA your geographical home.

Zarak Fatah is a transformational Life Coach who guides male entrepreneurs to experience more aliveness, love, deeper meaning, and purpose through his events and coaching. Zarak is a man who walks his talk. His 40th birthday brought a stark, undeniable realization that he wasn’t where he wanted to be (and where he thought he would be).

This wake-up was the catalyst for igniting a 180-degree shift in his life.

Zarak swapped the city for the jungle, reinvented himself, and as a result, is now living his dream of a healthy, balanced, fulfilling life. In this episode, he shares how he got here.

 

 

If you feel the call to reinvent your life and step more fully into what your soul intended, this delicious conversation is the catalyst you need.

 

These are the key takeaways that Zarak and I explored together:

  • What does it mean to be ALIVE?
  • Stepping away from aspects of life to more deeply connect with yourself.
  • Why we’re called to specific geographical locations.
  • How stepping away elevates your clarity.
  • Differentiating between the voices of obligation and vanity versus truth.
  • The unintentional choices that change us to the core.
  • The difference between masculine & feminine energy.
  • What the ego protects us from.
  • The journey of reparenting yourself.
  • Rewriting the stories to change your life.
  • Choosing to believe that love is safe.
  • And more…

 

This episode is a masterclass in vulnerability. You rarely get to see someone pouring out their heart in such an open and honest way.

There’s not enough vulnerability in our world. As a result, it’s hard for us to cultivate deep connections and express the buried things in our souls. Zarak is an incredible example of what it means to not only be vulnerable but to use the courage to show up as fuel to inspire others.

I believe the more we see vulnerability, the more we can pattern match to its safety. Eventually, being vulnerable becomes a genuine option for you. Imagine how that could change our lives – and ultimately the world.

EP 231. Justin & Leigh: The Deepest Silence You’ve Ever Known

“Tuning into silence is just taking time to listen to nothing in particular… just tuning into the simple essence of what is.”

The WHO has ranked noise pollution as only second to air pollution in its impact on human well being. Our world has become noisier and noisier. We’re constantly bombarded with stimuli and notifications  competing for our attention. As a result, it’s becoming harder than ever to disconnect from external chaos and sink into the depths within.

Justin Zorn & Leigh Marz are the authors of Golden: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise. Their perspectives and work on reclaiming the presence of silence in our lives has been taught to the U.S. Congress, Harvard, and Google. Justin & Leigh are committed to empowering people to reclaim silence in their lives – so they can experience the joy of connection, rest, and deep listening.

Justin & Leigh are here to remind us that silence does exist in the world. We just have to find it, honor it, and sink into it. In turn, we’ll experience mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health benefits.

 

 

I love how embodied Justin & Leigh are with their message around silence. The conversation we had was so rich and mindful. Together, we unpacked the psychology and science of silence from so many different angles and perspectives.

 

Key takeaways include: 

  • Defining silence.
  • Silence, noise and their relationship with productivity & GDP.
  • Understanding health issues & life years lost because of auditory noise.
  • Becoming aware of our internal noise.
  • Differentiating between stress & aliveness.
  • How to tune into silence.
  • How Cyrus Habib became a connoisseur of creation.
  • Seeking ‘eudaimonia’.
  • Exploring the discomfort of being.
  • Why Pythagoras required members of his inner circle to spend five years in silence.
  • And more…

 

If you’re ready to allow silence to be your greatest teacher, tune into this powerful episode to learn how to embody the practice of silence. In turn, you’ll discover how to access new depths of who you are through connectedness, slowness, and pristine quite.

Blown away. Spoke to the US Congress, NASA, Google – how to reclaim presence in our lives through silence. Such a practical application of mindfulness. I can tell when people embody their message and Justin and Leigh most certainly do. Such a nourishing, refreshing conversation and a potent reminder of what’s available to us when we drop into deep, palpable silence.

Go nuts on one specific subject. The whole episode about one thing (rather than the usual dancing around). A central topic – and unpack what that means in so many beautiful ways. I felt very grateful that I got to enter into a new level of awareness of silence. Expanded my definition about what it means to connect with silence. I didn’t expect it – and it was beautiful. Also, it’s fun interviewing 2 people at the same time.

Even if it’s just five seconds, can I just go as deep as possible and make those five seconds feel like a lifetime, because that is such a powerful idea that I certainly could use more of.

I realized this the other day I was having writer’s block and like just stuck in this space of not being able to be creative. And you’re both making me realize how it’s actually the key to all of it is coming back to those moments that you can just go deep and not go outside, looking for an answer or a space or something to pull you out of it. It’s not more noise. That’s going to pull you out of it. It’s actually connecting deeply with what’s present and what’s here. And so I’m just really appreciating I’m appreciating both of you right now, actually very much so.

Ep 230. Raj Jana – April Reflection: The Importance Of Filling Up Your Own Cup

“I really feel like I’m getting to that point where I now know when something undesirable is happening, like a trigger it’s here to teach me something and it’s on me. It’s my responsibility to understand what that is.”

This episode is my personal reflection for April 2022. Looking back, April was a very triggering month for me. I had a lot of things happening in my work, my relationships, and my relationship with self. It’s been an emotionally charged month. It was tough navigating everything and the combination of experiences made me feel exposed. In turn, I instinctively sought external validation from those I love.

As I shined the light of awareness on this pattern, I was able to uncover the learning opportunity. I saw the invitation to deepen further into self-love. I heard the call to take responsibility to fill up my own cup. To create internal validation. To know at a deeper level who I am is enough.

It’s been a beautiful journey that’s sparked so much growth – and I can’t wait to share it with you in this episode.

 

 

As usual, my good friend and muse Georgina EL Morshdy is here to hold space and guide the conversation. As you’ll hear in the episode, a lot of what I’m processing around validation and perception is something Georgina’s also working on.

The synchronicities are magical.

In this episode, Georgina & I explore:

  • Listening to others through the lens of presence.
  • How I’m deepening into my triggers.
  • Conditioning ourselves to find love within.
  • How staying grounded connects me with my power.
  • Discerning the energy that you’re making decisions from.
  • Remembering who I really am.
  • Who would you be if you followed your heart & flowed with life?
  • Why every emotional experience is an opportunity to learn.
  • And more…

What I love most about my monthly reflection episodes. It’s that the insights I share come from my lived experiences. I’m not planning to have these lessons. I’m not trying to find things to share with you! Instead, these growth opportunities show up for me organically. Using the lens of reflection and awareness, I make sure I learn from them.

I hope you find something in here that benefits your lived experiences.

Phoebe Mroczek is my soul sister and one of the most inspiring women I know.

EP 227. Ron Baker: What Your Soul Is Really Here To Do

“When we begin to understand that our challenges are there to point us in certain directions so that we will focus on those specific things in our lifetime, then it’s exactly what we need to be working on.” 

I love having previous guests back on the show. The new conversation reminds me how far I’ve come in my own journey of awareness. I’ll always remember the first time I met Ron Baker because until that moment, I knew nothing about the concept of an inner child.

 

Ron was one of the first teachers that taught me to go within for the answers, the awareness, and the healing. His impact on me was profound. In this conversation, we pick up the theme of the inner child and expand it to embrace the emerging self. We explore the intense wisdom that your soul’s curriculum has as you navigate this incarnation on earth. We talk about Ron’s new book and how it’s been inspired by his soul. No book can match the book of the soul and it’s clear that Ron’s new book was written from the most soulful of places.

 

This conversation is so rich and delicious. Tune in now to hear Ron and I explore:

  • Understanding the concept of a soul emergence.
  • What self-care is and what it isn’t.
  • How to know what’s your truth.
  • The concept of: Do unto yourself what you would do to others. 
  • Using breath to release stored emotion safely.
  • Claiming self as the main prize.
  • Ron’s experience of doing an audible recording of his book.
  • And more…

 

There’s so much freedom in discovering what the soul is here to do. There’s so much peace in understanding that our wounding helps create a soul curriculum for this life that serves to expand and evolve us. In this beautiful episode, Ron helps us remember the depth of truth that can be found inside. After all, when we know it’s there, we feel compelled to go and find it.

 

EP 226. Gina Worful Releasing Energetic Scarcity

“You are not anxious. Anxiousness is just present. It’s just there. How do we nurture ourselves through the anxiousness and let it be there?”

This week’s guest is one of the most magical humans I know. Gina Worful is a registered dietician and a master of human nutrition. Her work in this field is beautifully unique. Gina doesn’t teach meal planning or strict dieting rules but instead empowers her clients to connect with their bodies by eating more intuitively. 

Gina’s work offers people a pathway back to your true self using food as a bridge to create deeper relationships with every part of your life. The path Gina’s offering is the path of resonance, where we get to feel into our energetic relationship with different experiences.

This is such a beautiful conversation and I’m excited for you to hear it.

In this episode, Gina and I explore: 

  • Understanding that your body’s symptoms have something to teach you. 
  • The energetic signatures that drive our behavior. 
  • Gifting yourself the permission to feel difficult feelings. 
  • The energetic frequency of food and how your body responds. 
  • The energy of money. 
  • How intuition is cultivated. 
  • How Gina cultivated the courage to feel.
  • And more…

This is a beautiful, winding conversation where Gina and I play with, explore, and unpack the energetic frequencies of food, money, & life experiences… because who you are being is just as important as what you are doing.
