EPISODE 063 | DANIELLE PAIGE

46595_607381535958506_2087789799_nI’ve never met someone who loves what they do as much as Danielle Paige. She is talented and knowledgable in her field of Astrology, but it is her passion that impresses me. She’s a Healer and a Spiritual Life Coach who works with both men and women to help guide them on their journey. What makes her unique is her ability to integrate her logic with her intuition. While she does this heady spiritual work now, she didn’t start off this way. As you’ll hear in the episode she has a masters in interior design and architecture and had a successful career doing that until she decided to follow her passion doing what she loves, working with astrology, her true purpose.  I knew basically nothing about astrology other than that I was a Taurus prior to meeting her but her knowledge and ability to explain the facts to me in a story allowed me to use astrology to my advantage and deepen my self awareness to get closer to my true purpose in life. You’ll love this episode even if you’re not into astrology because we talk about intuition, meditation, and energy clearing as well. Enjoy this rad lady.

“Astrology is a tool to help people heal their soul.”
“We can’t change unless we’re aware.”
Danielle Paige makes Astrology a story.

TIPS:

-When you pick up people’s energy take a salt bath to cleanse it.
-Before you go somewhere that will have a lot of charged energy sit down and imagine yourself in a bubble of light, this will protect you from any energy you don’t want to pick up. Imagine this energy protecting you.
-Carry crystals with you to protect your energy. Amethyst is best for protecting energy. (Must be touching our skin.
-We are responsible for our own energy. When you pick up other people’s energy you may need to cut an energetic cord from them and say, “I cut the cord and send the energy back to them in the form of love.”

Lena Dunham, Food, Body Image, & Role Models

Special edition episode where Isabel Foxen Duke and I riff on the food and body section of Lena Dunham’s book Not That Kind of Girl. We get into body image, food, and how women are usually portrayed in the media and how Lena Dunham’s work is instrumental in shifting this.

Lena Dunham is making visible an issue that most women silently struggle with, #BodyImage.

Thanks @lenadunham for bringing awareness to body positivity. @isabelfoxenduke & @katiedalebout discuss #notthatkindofgir

TIPS:

-When you find yourself counting calories even when you don’t want to, actively stop yourself by thinking about anything but food.
-Keep in mind that celebrities are first entertainers and role models second. While they bring attention to these deep rooted body image issues most women struggle with in silence in and that is great, they do not aim to teach they are simply sharing their often flawed experience of being products of our society.

I’m ‘Not That Kind of GIRL’ either Lena…

tumblr_n14rkuvHWM1qk08n1o1_500
It’s no secret by now but I love me some Lena Dunham. I think she is the most humble & authentic artist of our generation. As much as I love personal growth, wellness, and spirituality I love me some fiction & art equally as much. In fact, I think it is important and as I spoke with my friend Elle on this podcast fiction and storytelling IS important for personal growth.

So since today is the premiere of Season 4 of Lena’s creation GIRLS I thought it would be a timely day to share my notes on why I loved her memoir/ advice book, Not That Kind of Girl.

  I loved Not That Kind of Girl for a couple reasons:

  1. It makes my journaling better because reading a memoir makes me more comfortable writing in vivid detail about the seemly insignificant events and happenings in my life.

  2. By reading about the events and circumstances from Lena’s life and childhood as someone from my generation, I can not only relate, but use what she drew attention to as an inspiration to acknowledge the events that have impacted me without me being aware.

  3. It makes me feel like I’m not alone in my weirdness, struggles, awkwardness, and imperfections since someone from my generation has vocalized what we all go through in our own unique ways.

  4. Since she shared her story at the level of raw honesty she did, it gives me permission and inspires me to share with that same level of authenticity too.

  5. She is talented at being extremely self-aware of the gravity of the experiences she’s having almost simultaneously to going through them.

I’m gratefulnot_that_kind_of_girl_by_lena_dunham_WEB for Lena Dunham for her authenticity, her voice, and her bravery to portray our generation in the media. Is it all true for me personally? No, but I can relate to 80 percent of what she writes about by experience or through witnessing it in people I’ve know or encountered & the other 20 percent makes for great entertainment.

Here are a few more things related to this topic:

-Review I liked of the book.

-If you read it and you were wondering who the character of Nellie was as much as I was when I read it, I’ll save you some googling. Here you go. I had to stop drop and google as soon as I read that part too like I was Curious George.

-Isabel Foxen Duke & I made a video which will be out soon about the food & body image part of the book.  For now check out this amazing video she did that makes me love her even more.

– If you too are “Not that Kind of Girl” like Lena & I and want support from GIRLS email me about my mentoring program, I don’t know you might be into it or might hate it.

EPISODE 061 | Dr. Joy Jacobs

Today’s episode is very heavy & very special. I was touched by the gravity of what this conversation. Dr. Joy Jacobs is a clinical psychologist, coach, and author specializing in issues related to eating, weight management, and body image. Her interest in the intersection between health, beauty, fashion, and popular culture led her to this specialty. She is a rare combo since most professionals and researchers specialize in either eating disorders or obesity but not both. She makes the poignant point in the episode that public health campaigns fighting obesity are often heard to by those who don’t need those messages and they can be detrimental to their mental and physical health. She also discusses how while there are many campaigns surfacing promoting body positive messages at the same time more eating disorders are developing in young children by mirroring the behaviors of dieting parents who are products of the massively prevalent dieting culture in our society. We discuss these issues and more including how spirituality comes into play in healing these issues. Joy is super smart and has been cited in many national publications, including Elle, US News and World Report, and the Today Show, on the issues of eating disorders, body image, weight management and related topics. So excited for your thoughts on this episode please leave them below.

My favorite lines & nuggets of wisdom: YEP THEY’RE TWEETABLES…Just click right on ‘em!

“I’ve seen kids as young as 8 in my office with full blown disorders.”
“Do you want to be remembered for size 0 jeans or what you did in life?” 
“It’s almost easier to heal eating disorders in kids because the parents can help.” 

TIPS:

-Can’t take ownership of the successes or failures of your clients, you can’t take that on.
-Find a tribe and help if you think you have issues with eating even if it feels scary. We were not meant to be on the earth alone.
-You have to walk through the fear and do it anyways. Expose yourself to what is scary and do it.
-Journaling can be the first step to healing and getting honest with yourself.
