About the Episode

Do you feel powerless in your life? Are you stuck in certain situations and patterns with no end in sight? Kind of like your life is a freight train speeding out of control?

Today’s episode will empower you to critically look at the moments you abandon yourself and make conscious decisions that are in alignment with your soul.

Never again will you forget your ability to choose.

After recognizing a harmful pattern in her life, Rachel had an epiphany in a recent therapy session. In today’s episode, she opens up in depth about this situation she finds herself in again and again - whenever she is presented with a big opportunity. Since recognizing the source of it, she muses over how to take charge of her life and only do things that align with her on a soul level.

The truth is, there are always going to be things we don’t want to do. We are adults, after all. But there are critical moments in our life where we have the ability to choose what comes next - or to choose what makes the hard things easier. You can either keep yourself in those same familiar but harmful patterns, or you can heal. Tune in to choose yourself every damn day.
