Ep. 147 Finding Your True Note: The Emotional + Spiritual Power of Voice with Stewart Pearce

Screen_Shot_2018-09-03_at_2.33.42_PM.png

Stewart Pearce is a world-renowned voice coach, an intuitive, and a seer of forty years. He was the highlight of a SoulCycle Legends retreat that Lindsey attended and, after teaching her how to find her true tone, we knew we had to introduce Stewart to all of you..

How many of us have a different voice that  answers the phone, that leads meetings, that  talks to a partner, that talks to children? Kind of crazy right?  As women, we often pitch up to sound more lady-like--yet, disconnected from our belly breath and gut instinct.  Your voice is connected to so much more than just your larynx – it’s deeply emotional + spiritual, and today we explore the dynamics of that relationship. We wanted to know what it meant and what it felt like to express from your true tone.  Also, as a special treat, Stewart leads us through a beautiful meditation in finding our true note!

 

We talk about…

  • Expressing your highest self

  • Stewart’s ethereal experience with sound

  • Growing up synaesthetic

  • Grounding yourself in the human experience

  • The relationship between exploring your sexual being + the development of your voice

  • Being a spiritual being having a human experience

  • How our relationships with the people around us affect our voice

  • Why we need to meditate

  • The physicality of your voice

  • Grounding yourself

  • Stewart’s relationship with Princess Diana

A few weeks ago, Lindsey + Krista had the pleasure of hosting a live conversation and Q+A with John Wineland, a transformational relationship expert, a spiritual intimacy teacher, and the guest on episode 96 + episode 97 of this show. John led the audience through a conversation about practicing the art of embodiment, intimate communication, and feeling for better relationships and a deeper connection in your love life.

 

 

And as always, #ALMOST30NATION was so open and vulnerable with their questions.  Questions answered touched on topics like intimacy and dating, the energetic dynamics of a relationship, sex, and so much more. (Of course, we’ll also be chatting all about it in the Secret Facebook Group!)

 

We discuss…

 

  • The 3 layers of sex: physical, emotional, & energetic

  • Masculine essence + sex

  • Yogic practices for strengthening your consciousness + turning your body into an invitation for love

  • Do you have a masculine or feminine energy? Maybe both?

  • Cultivating both your feminine + your masculine

  • Invaluable tools that evoke the best from your partners for years to come

  • How to reinvigorate relationships full of love, connection – and sex!

Amber Rae is an artist, writer, creative, and curious human being – and joins the girls this week for an in-depth, candid conversation about the stories we tell ourselves.

Another thing that kind of blew us away about this conversation was the level of vulnerability and honesty that Amber shares. She’s already caused us to start thinking more about being really honest and open with our feelings so that we can expand and grow, in our relationships and just our lives in general, and we know she’ll help all of you grow as well! We chat about…

 

  • Creating a story about your life that doesn’t serve you – and then rewriting it!

  • Learning to listen to your intuition

  • Numbing yourself with pharmaceuticals + overcoming an addiction to Adderall

  • Losing your father as a child

  • Our relationship with death

  • We always find the evidence for what we choose to believe

  • The unique process Amber went through to write her book

  • Becoming aware of the story you tell yourself

  • What scientific insights Amber learned while researching her book

  • Fear of being radically raw + open

  • Open relationships

  • Dropping the shame around doing things differently

  • Being a shadow artist: someone who is behind other people, helping to elevate and push them forward because they’re afraid to step into the light

  • Living your life out of alignment

Ep. 135 Family Constellations: Connecting Your Inner Child to Your Adult Self + Healing Generational Trauma with Marine Sélénée

DB824979-7D16-4D7A-B52A-2B3C81165ACE.jpeg

You may not know it (at least not yet), but your family story might be the one thing holding you back from success.

 

 

We can’t change our parents or our family – and we can’t change what’s already happened – but we can change our perception around it. Unresolved traumatic events in your family can hinder how happiness and success flow to us in the present and future.  Marine Sélénée is a Family Constellations specialist who is dedicated to bringing peace, love, and respect to families. Krista + Lindsey can attest that Family Constellations will help you break free from any negative painful patterns – and it will be life changing.

 

After hitting rock bottom at the age of 25, Marine started her own healing journey and discovered the power of Family Constellations firsthand. Now she shares that gift with others, helping people finally bring order back to their lives, make peace with what was, and accept what they did receive and did not receive. We talk about…

 

  • Moving from France to the U.S.

  • Hitting rock bottom at the age of 25 + going through a spiritual awakening

  • Starving to be be seen, to be heard, and to be recognized

  • Everyone has a different perception

  • Why you can’t heal unconscious, underlying problems in your family – you need to unearth them

  • The little boy or girl inside of you who is just waiting to be seen or heard

  • Storing trauma in your body + healing it

  • When a mom or dad might need their kid to take care of them

  • How to discover what affected you subconsciously

  • Why parents need to respect their children enough to tell them the truth, even when it’s hard

  • How you can be impacted by past generations, beyond your mother and father

  • Practicing acceptance + respect

  • Do we choose our parents?

  • Healing ghosts by recognizing them
