Ellie Knaus and DaughterAre you a mom who questions your abilities, decisions, and actions as a parent? Welcome to parenting!

We all have our fair share of struggles, expectations, and unconscious beliefs about ourselves, but there is nothing more raw then when our children bring all this up for us. In those (usually very painful) moments we can either acknowledge it and take responsibility or we can continue to create an unconscious environment for our children.

This weeks’ episode is all about mommy life! Ellie Knaus and I discuss the messiness, the beauty, the challenges and the blessings that all come with raising the next generation in these modern times.

This episode is filled with humour and reassurance that we are all doing the best we can at any given time and that is enough! Leave your high expectations of being able to do it all at the door, ladies.

Meet John Prendergast

Have you ever had a “gut feeling?” Do you listen to that “gut feeling when you experience it?”

In this episode, Dr. John Pendergast states that “our bodies have a natural sense of truth.” By listening to our bodies, we can connect with our felt sense of “inner knowing” – that deep intelligence available through our bodies. He shows us how we can integrate the gifts of our inner knowing into every aspect of daily life.

We also explore how our shadows can be used as portals; in other words, how our dark and painful feelings and sensations can point us toward a radiance within.

Plus, we learn about the somatic qualities of our inner knowing and how these quiet signs can guide our choices.

Fulfilled LifeWhat does it take to be fulfilled? Is it different for you than it is for us? Do we need to go out and achieve things? Do we need to acquire stuff? Is it based on our circumstances? Do we need to have specific opportunities?
We believe that we all have the ability to be fulfilled. It doesn’t matter what you have, what you have done where you are or what has happened to you in the past. All that matters is what you do what what you know right NOW.
It’s not about the circumstances you find yourself in. It’s about the mindset you bring to those circumstances. Ultimately, our mindset is the only thing we truly have control over. As much as we may like to think that we can control other people and circumstances, the truth is, we can’t. We can only control ourselves.
This episode will share the 3 things that matter most when creating a fulfilled life. These 3 things can be applied by anyone, anywhere, anytime. They are things that you have 100% control over. You get to decide whether or not you want to use them in every single moment of your life. The more you practice using them, the better you will get. If you’re dedicated enough, they will become 2nd nature to you and, before you know it, you will be living a fulfilled life.
