In this episode, Rachel is lucky she can speak after going in for emergency dental surgery! Gaining wisdom after losing a wisdom tooth, Rachel shares on her fears of the dentist, the difficult dental experience she had in the past and how she had built this up to be a really big, gut-wrenching thing when in reality... It was no big deal at all. Sometimes we tell ourselves stories that define our lives; that we will never be able to pull something off, that we are too scared, that certain things are not for us - and these stories often have more power than the reality we are actually in. What’s a story you are telling yourself that isn’t actually true? Tune in for an episode on being uncomfortable and looking your fears straight in the eye. Sometimes facing them can be the biggest moment of healing.
Anxiety as a Spiritual Practice
In this episode, Rachel is in a pivotal moment of her life. She has been receiving signs from the universe - signs that she is in for BIG CHANGE, both personally and professionally. Change is often not comfortable, but we have to recognize what doesn’t serve us and let it go. How do you escape feeling your emotions? Is it through food and alcohol, or do you have other ways of avoiding discomfort? Every time you try to escape your feelings, they go somewhere inside you and eventually they have to be released. But the universe always gives us what we need at the moment we need it, and in the amount we need. So today, feel your feelings - no matter what they are. This episode will show you how.
Turn Resentment into Compassion
In this episode, Rachel gets personal about an experience in her life that recently caused her to harbor a lot of resentment. When our needs have not been met, or we have been wronged, we are often quick to judge and jump to conclusions. But often times, we don’t know the full story! Putting ourselves in another person’s shoes is difficult, but practicing this is crucial - because the truth can surprise you. Tune in to an episode on expectations, character flaws and how to embrace compassion and understanding, especially when something doesn’t go as planned.
Be Yourself, The World Depends On It with LP
In this episode Rachel is joined by esteemed singer songwriter LP (you for sure know her platinum single Lost on You!). In between tours, LP is home in LA and takes the time to talk with Rachel about life, love and perseverance. To LP, having tools to calm ourselves so we can take all the curveballs of life is the key to being balanced (and calming ourselves is not the same as laziness, as we often think!). She shares insight from her yoga practice and the process of writing music that’s brought her through everything from break-ups, being dropped from record labels, and eventually turning her dreams into reality. Life is a long and winding road full of ups and downs. The important part is to show up for yourself as you are throughout the entire journey. Tune in to an episode that will encourage you to listen to your inner voice and honor who you are at your core.
Be Kind To Yourself
In this episode, Rachel is going through a week of feeling unmotivated and uninspired. We all go through challenging times… while sitting with your struggles can be helpful for learning and evolving, we need know the difference between what is truth and what is our inner critical voice demanding too much of us. The most important thing to do during these harder moments is to pull yourself into the present moment to recognize what you actually need. If a night on the couch eating chocolate cake is what you need - do it! If it’s a run - move your body! If its time spent with loved ones - ask for it! It can be exhausting listening to that inner critical voice all the time telling us to be better and work harder. So, cut yourself some slack, ask for help and allow yourself to receive, and know you are not alone. Tune into an episode that will inspire you to do just that.
