About the Episode

Today’s episode begins with a grounding to help settle your nervous system.

Rachel has been feeling both very content within the bubble of her life, and very worried about the state of the world at the same time.

She shares the contrasts happening in her outside world and in her heart. How do we stay hopeful when the world feels hopeless?

Using her love for the (increasingly disappearing) forest as an example, Rachel shares the grieving process she has gone through in trying to align her life with her core values. Is it possible to walk through the forest in peace every day, while knowing most of it is being cut down just a mile away? Can we appreciate what we have, while also grieving what is lost?

If you have a cause that you love, now is the time to get out of your bubble and fight for it. There is no time like the present. Today’s episode will inspire you to begin.

Key Takeaways

  • Sometimes keeping your head in the sand is the only way to protect your heart, but don’t stay there. Keep your feet on steady ground with your gaze turn toward what’s crumbling.
  • The time to pivot away from the things that are out of alignment in your life is NOW.
  • If you have a cause that is close to your heart, that is where your work lies.
  • Be sure to stay anchored in the good as you fight the necessary fight.
