[AMY SAYS] How to Manifest Your Soulmate – Part 2 EP#402

If you’ve been coming up empty in the dating arena and are wondering what you’re doing wrong, this two-part episode is going to be your jam. Here’s the deal: Unless you’ve had some sort of magical, utopian guide on dating, it’s likely that you’ve learned how to date and be in relationship through trial and error, your parent’s [awesome] example, and/or a barrage of confusing commentary about what’s “normal” and “realistic” from our hyperbolic media.

So, how does one find “the one”? Kismet? Chant some magic words or build an altar? Online dating? [starts to pull teeth out] I feel you. Because I wanted to equip you with everything in YOUR power to call in your dream-boat, I created this two-part pod series to teach you how to get crystal clear on what you want in a partner, and in this second edition in particular, what you can actually DO about it. If you’ve been feeling like the cards are stacked against you, get ready to feel super empowered and excited about what your future holds. (Not just swipe-right kind of excited.)

This pod explores:

  • What (and who) you need to stop doing if you are serious about getting down to biz with finding your heart’s twin
  • How to know what action to take to put yourself out there… without feeling like you’d rather eat a shit sandwich
  • How your inability to receive compliments and kindnesses from others could be negatively affecting your dating life
  • How to stay positive and encourage yourself throughout the process (even if you’d rather just blame your ex for everything)

[AMY SAYS] How to Manifest Your Soulmate – Part 1 EP#401

 

 

 

We get bombarded with messages about what true love looks like, but when we look around we don’t often see a shit-ton of fairytale romances. Or partnerships that are even happy, let alone blissful. So what does it really take to manifest your soulmate? I mean… are some people just lucky and everyone else is screwed? Hardly.

Here’s the deal… No one ever teaches us how to prepare ourselves to be in a relationship. So, what happens? We usually just jump in and learn as we go… over-riding our intuition, ignoring warning signs, and inevitably taking on a bunch of “projects”.

In this pod, I’ll have you dig into your deepest, truest desires for a partner. You’ll uncover what they look like, act like, what your life looks like together, and who you intend to be inside your relationship. We’re dreamin’ this week and next week we’ll be schemin’. This episode is the first of a two-part series I have created to equip you with all the tools necessary to summon up your soulie. Don’t worry… you don’t have to chant, or burn anyone’s hair, or pray to an altar. In fact, you already have everything you need. Intrigued? Have a listen.

This pod explores:

  • What to do with your pesky Inner Critic while you manifest your soulie (the one who tells you you’re being too picky and unrealistic… yeah, you know the one)
  • The number one reason why you haven’t found your heart’s twin yet (and it’s super simple to fix!)
  • My favorite exercise I’ve given clients and students to manifest their partner and I shit you not, I’ve been invited to five weddings because of it! (One I even officiated!)
  • Why you HAVE to tell the universe what you want in a partner (because the opposite SUCKS!)

Happily Ever After: Secrets of a Happy Marriage with Ms. + Mr. Smith EP#400

Happily Ever After: Secrets of a Happy Marriage with Ms. + Mr. Smith EP#400

Ever wonder what it really takes to keep love alive long-term? Ever see happy couples and wonder what-the-hell their secret is? (I mean… Considering you’re ready to strangle your spouse… like, always).

In the near twenty-four years we’ve been together, Mr. Smith and I have consistently and repeatedly been asked what our secrets are to not just a long-term marriage but a happy one. Plenty of people stay together, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that they aren’t all that happy… maybe just okay… and sometimes flat-out miserable.

So, what does it really take to keep love alive and FUN over multiple decades? Well, you’re in luck. In this episode, Mr. Smith is back on the show and we candidly and openly talk about six major factors that have kept our marriage strong, fun, and intimate. And, speaking of rocket science, many of our “secrets” aren’t all that hard… it’s just likely you’ve never been taught. Have a listen and you just may completely change the trajectory of your relationship.

This pod explores:

  • How to stop making your relationship feel like work (Ugh… don’t we already have enough work?)
  • What it means to grow as individuals AND as a couple and where you may be totally sabotaging your partner without knowing it
  • How to make sex important in your relationship… for reals
  • Why you need to speak to your partner like a lover instead of a business partner and our favorite tip to help you start doing so

[TOOL] Working with Handwriting Analysis to Create Boundaries EP#399

[TOOL] Working with Handwriting Analysis to Create Boundaries EP#399

What if I told you your handwriting speaks volumes (no pun intended) about your confidence, self-esteem, ability to speak up for yourself, and how much concern you take with the opinions of others? You’d be like, “Now, wait. What!? Come again?” I know, I know. Stay with me. Believe it or not, it’s actually part of a scientific process called our Ideomotor Response which refers to the way we communicate our subconscious thoughts through our physical being… a.k.a. Handwriting. (Pssst… it’s also how ouija boards work too, so SPOILER ALERT, it wasn’t your deceased Aunt Helen trying to convey a message to you.)

A few years ago, I went through a wildly fascinating certification in Handwriting Analysis and I think you may find this tool surprisingly helpful in setting and establishing boundaries. Not to mention that it’s super easy and simple… it may be one of the easiest personal growth tools you ever use. Like, you literally just write a bit differently. You in?

In this episode, I spill some little-known secrets on how slight alterations to your handwriting can change how often and how well you speak up for yourself. If you like to geek out on the hybrid of science and woo, this is up your alley. Get out a blank sheet of paper and a pen and get ready to boundary your ass off.

This episode explores:

  • Understanding the Ideomotor Response and how it registers in our handwriting
  • What you need to do with the margins of your page if you want to establish boundaries
  • The letter that symbolizes communication and how you can shape them to better speak up for yourself
  • The serial killer’s handwriting sample I reviewed during my certification and what it indicated about them

[COACHING SESSION] Working with Isabel on Familial Boundaries EP#398

[COACHING SESSION] Working with Isabel on Familial Boundaries EP#398

What if you could listen in to a coaching session where someone is being coached on how to establish much-needed boundaries with overbearing and controlling siblings? You’d be all over it, right? I mean… who hasn’t struggled to set up boundaries with family. Hello! In this coaching episode, I work with a lovely and highly accomplished woman, Isabel, on her constant struggle to be heard and taken seriously as the youngest of five siblings. 

When I asked how she struggled to set and enforce boundaries, here is what she shared with me:

I need help with my family! I have three older sisters, and two of them think they are my mothers and have tried to boss me around my whole life. I’m almost 47, and it is time for this to stop! There are no boundaries — they voice their opinion on my religious practices (or rather lack thereof), that I moved to another state (can’t imagine why I would want to do that!), that I chose not to have children, etc. 

Nothing is sacred or private, and it has gotten so much worse since my Dad passed this past March. I am so thankful to finally be aware of all this and the fact that it needs to stop, but I could really use your help in implementing these changes. Four plus decades of bad behavior is hard to turn around!

In this episode, I help Isabel work through her family dynamic and the constant need to “sweep everything under the rug” which has often led to resentment and many vitriolic eruptions. We discuss some specific things she can do to get ahead of tough conversations with her sisters, how to not get caught up in the emotion, and how to follow through on the boundaries she sets. Be sure to have your pen and paper handy and get ready to swipe Isabel’s homework for your own!

This pod explores:

  • Specific verbiage to use when a family member catches you off-guard or if they are yelling and name-calling
  • How to approach a difficult conversation with an abrasive and controlling family member
  • How to identify both the surface issue and the root issue (aka the real issue) of what you and your family may not see eye to eye about
  • My favorite tool to examine what stories you may be making up about your family

[DIAL AN EXPERT] Kate Anthony on Establishing Boundaries EP#397

[DIAL AN EXPERT] Kate Anthony on Establishing Boundaries EP#397

Have you ever found yourself referring to someone in your life by saying, “They simply don’t have any boundaries!”? Maybe it’s an overbearing boss or a parent who is all up in your business and you find yourself labeling them as the one who has no boundaries. What if it was actually the other way around… what if it was about YOU who hadn’t established any boundaries with them?

When someone in your life is forceful and brazen, it can be so easy to assign blame to them and focus on why they are a complete asshat instead of examining the behavior you may be tolerating. Perhaps it’s about what you haven’t said up until this point… the behavior you continue to allow. And maybe you constantly complain about how frustrating your mom is or how aggravating your co-worker is, yet you complain to the wrong party. To those who may give you sympathy, but who aren’t capable of creating any substantial change.

On the show this week, I dial up Kate Anthony, a dear friend, colleague and a powerhouse in the field of ultimate boundary setting: maneuvering through divorce. In this candid conversation, we discuss the areas where women tend to struggle with boundaries, tactics to start speaking up for yourself, and how to reclaim your power. And, please don’t be fooled… this episode is NOT only about divorce. There is something to be gleaned for any woman struggling to speak up for herself in a powerful way. Get some.

This pod explores:

  • The most common areas where women have difficulty speaking up for their wants, needs, and opinions
  • Where [the hell] to start if you know you need to start establishing boundaries
  • The sexual boundary that many women don’t even realize is available to them
  • How Kate managed to have a stellar divorce even though her marriage was hugely abusive

[AMY SAYS] How-the-hell to Establish Lasting Boundaries EP#396

[AMY SAYS] How-the-hell to Establish Lasting Boundaries EP#396

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have undoubtedly heard the notion of “setting boundaries”, but have you ever wondered exactly what that means? Or maybe you drummed up the nerve to tell someone (like, your mom, boss, or bestie) how you really felt about something only to be blatantly ignored? (Or worse… not even taken seriously.)

How do you actually go about establishing boundaries that are clear, respected, and adhered to? It’s hard enough to broach a challenging topic with someone, let alone follow through on your boundary.

Here’s the deal… if you’ve been constantly bitchin’ and moanin’ about something, and you’ve been super vocal about it to everyone, except the person who really needs to know you’re (ah-hem) “upset”, then it’s probably time to have a tough convo. In this week’s episode, I share my three-step process to establishing boundaries in a way in which you can be heard and own your personal power.

This pod explores:

  • What-the-hell a boundary even is
  • The tell-tale place to find where a boundary is sorely needed
  • My three-step process to having these challenging convos
  • What to do if someone flat-out doesn’t accept your request

[TOOL] Shaina Gadow on Curbing Anxiety with EFT Tapping EP#395

[TOOL] Shaina Gadow on Curbing Anxiety with EFT Tapping EP#395

If you’ve struggled with anxiety, you know how challenging and seemingly insurmountable it can be. It can feel like your racing thoughts and worry simply can’t be redirected no matter how hard you try. So, you ruminate and worry. Ruminate and worry. Feeling like your mind just won’t turn off. Trust… I have been there, my friends. And, so has my guest on this week’s show. 

Shaina Gadow struggled with anxiety for her entire life and it manifested as extreme hypochondria and obsessive thoughts about the danger her body may be in. In working toward her own healing, she found the world of Emotional Freedom Technique, commonly called EFT or “tapping” and was soon able to relinquish her anxiety and stress. And, try not to get too excited, but she recorded a special training just for us to help us do the same! Score!

In this episode, Shaina shares her story (which I’m sure you will find familiar) and outlines how tapping can be used for a multitude of different issues including anxiety and overwhelm. In addition to her competency with EFT, Shaina also practices Matrix Healing which can dig even deeper into solving unresolved trauma that manifests as anxiety. If you find yourself constantly battling anxiety, consumed by worry, or having a difficult time letting go of stress, you won’t want to miss this special “tool” episode. 

This pod explores:

  • Shaina’s super easy tactic you can use in anxious moments to immediately calm your stress (even if you’re surrounded by people)
  • A completely free video training walking you through a simple tapping process to curb your anxiety
  • The difference between E.F.T. (or tapping) and Matrix Healing and what the hell that even means (hint: it’s really good news for squashing your anxiety)
  • The tools Shaina used to break free from debilitating and lifelong anxiety

[DIAL AN EXPERT] LaToya Newton on Dealing with Anxiety + Depersonalization EP#394

[DIAL AN EXPERT] LaToya Newton on Dealing with Anxiety + Depersonalization EP#394

Overthinking. Chronic worry. Mentally obsessing and ruminating. Contemplating worst-case scenarios. Racing heart. Sweaty palms. No, I’m not describing a character in a horror film. I’m describing something that many of us deal with on a daily basis: Anxiety. 

Anxiety is directly connected to our primitive human fear response, and is actually a way our brain is just trying to take care of us and keep us safe. But that notion isn’t so reassuring when we are stressing ourselves out non-stop about what others think of us, worry we accidentally left the flat iron on, or obsessively worry we might die on our way to work. 

On this week’s show, I am thrilled to dial up an expert on the subject. LaToya Newton and I met at the end of 2020 and instantly bonded over our anxiety disorders, our strict religious upbringing, and our mutual love of a good “f” bomb. I wanted to bring her on the show to discuss her journey with anxiety and depersonalization (a specific symptom of anxiety), her specific tactics to curb anxious behavior, and how she has found her own personal power through speaking publicly about her struggles.

We dig into the different anxiety treatments available from CBT therapy to cannabis and everything in-between. We also look at the stigmas around dealing with mental health that LaToya dealt with as a Black woman and how masturbation can help stave off anxiety. Yes, I said what I said. This was a super fun interview and you won’t want to miss it. 

This pod explores:

  • LaToya’s personal story of dealing with depersonalization as a symptom of anxiety (and what that even means)
  • Dealing with family and friends who tell you to “just pray about it” when you’re struggling with anxiety or mental health
  • Multiple forms of therapy that can dramatically improve anxious tendencies (and we *may* also discuss masturbation as an anxiety relief tactic)
  • LaToya’s personal “formula” for combatting anxiety and how you can create one for yourself

[AMY SAYS] How to Work with Your Anxiety EP#393

[AMY SAYS] How to Work with Your Anxiety EP#393

 

 

 

You have a job interview coming up, but you can’t calm your mind from thinking about the worst case scenarios. You have a huge presentation coming up at work, and every time you think about it, your palms sweat and your heart races. You have a family event coming up and damn-it if your mother-in-law doesn’t spike your anxiety! 

Or maybe you can’t remember a time in your life when anxiety hasn’t been present. It doesn’t have to be a strenuous job interview or family event to get your heart racing… it just races all. The damn. Time. 

Whether you struggle with situational anxiety or chronic anxiety, the effects can be downright debilitating. And, although anxiety disorders and anxious thoughts are more commonplace than ever, it can be challenging to find tactics and strategies that actually help. Of course, we all know there’s weed or traditional western medicine approaches, but what do you do if you don’t dig those options? Just white-knuckle it the whole time? Hardly.

In this week’s show, I share my intimate, personal journey with anxiety, where anxiety originates from, and a bevy of ways you can tackle this beast whether you tend toward traditional western medicine or prefer alternative options. You may have anxiety, but honey, it does not have you.

This pod explores:

  • The number one thing you can change TODAY that will dramatically decrease your anxiety
  • How to properly set yourself up for dealing with anxiety triggers like a boss
  • Understanding the connection between anxiety and our primitive fight/flight response
  • My favorite tactics for immediately squashing a fit of nerves
