Welcome to episode 75!

 

I am joined by writer, podcaster, speaker and artist Natalie Lue for a super juicy conversation about people pleasing! Hold to your hats and lean all the way in for a very honest conversation on what people pleasing really is (manipulation) how it shows up (immaturity) and how to begin to address is (responsibility).

 

This is not one for the faint hearted but its contained in love and will be very helpful for many! This conversation got me fired up and inspired so I have decided to host a supportive and nourishing workshop called Freedom fromPeople Pleasing this workshop is included in my Everyday Joy Membership. It will cover what people pleasing is, how it's linked to your inner child how it shows up and practical tips to address it, Sign up to my mailing list here if you would like to hear more.

Welcome to Episode 73!!

 

I had a little hiatus, then hosted a daily podcast community project celebrating black history month through October and now I am back to my enlightening conversation format and and delighted to kick off this new season of podcasts with Reverend Gail Love-Schock (you can tell I am delighted by my high pitched shrill in the beginning of our chat... sorry!).

 

Reverend Gail and I have a deep, real and nourishing conversation about emotional safety, self connection and leadership.  We also talk about prosperity and business. Our prosperity chat did not go as deep and wide as we wanted it to so we will be back with a part 2!

 

Gail Love-Schock, Interfaith Reverend and the world’s first and only Energy Transformation Strategist, has helped thousands of people move through radical change, moving closer to love and celebration through meditation, ceremony, ritual, mentorship, and retreats.

 

Gail’s ministry focuses on the taboo subjects of life including sex, money, and death, all of which enable people to live a rich, vibrant and meaningful life today.

 

Accredited by One Spirit Interfaith Foundation, she has featured in global outlets such as The Sunday Times, New York Post, The Sunday Post, and Psychologies.

 

Special offer from Gail:

Gail has a MEGA SESSIONS with The Rev service available. These sessions are two and a half hours of deep inquiry, learning how to work with the 4 levels of consciousness and The Enneagram to completely transform your reality.

I know black history month is over, but listen to the audio for an 'explanation'.

Suzy Ashworth honours Tessa Sanderson CBE.

 

In today's podcast takeover Suzy Ashworth celebrates Tessa Sanderson’s commitment to being the best and her capacity to give the best.

 

Suzy is a real one she doesn’t throw glitter on shit. At one point in this episode she used some strong language and it is totally it is necessary. You guys know I swear and I braced myself as I heard Suzy's words as it activated trauma from experiencing what she described.  This is why this project is here. It is not to gloss over the wickedness black people have endured but I believed that at some point we need to acknowledge the shit and then alchemise it. If we stay in trauma we only have trauma. Our ancestors and elders didn’t endure for us to live in trauma.

 

 

In terms of wellness Suzy shares that she is inspired by Tessa Sanderson’s ability to allow herself to be open to learning and new, regardless of her age and experience which is a huge gift. I must take this moment to thank Suzy. Suzy, one of the most powerful gifts you have given me is the space to allow myself to park what I know to one side and be open to new and deeper learning. This is possibly one of the most expansive gifts I have received in my adult life.

 

About Suzy Ashworth:

Suzy Ashworth is a mindset and business coach who helps female entrepreneurs increase their intention, impact, and income with grace and ease.

Ronke Lawal honours Dr Maya Angelou.

 

If you listened to my podcast chat with Ronke earlier this year you will know that I am a total Ronke fan #Ronke4President (please can we get this trending?)

 

Ronke highlights Dr Angelou’s capacity to be whole, her ability to allow the essence of who she is to permeate through her multifaceted life rather than conform into the narrow society boxes society creates to confine us. Ronke speaks powerfully to Dr Angelou’s ability to be multifaceted and excellent whilst reflecting that we all have the ability to live this way. Ronke honours Dr Angelou for being a role model for powerful listening, acknowledging and apologising for making mistakes, embracing her wholeness knowing that mistakes are not defining factors. They make us human.

Natalie Lue honours her late grandmother Pinchy Lue.

 

In today's podcast comes Natalie Lue honours her grandmother who sounds like she was a powerhouse.  Pinchy Lue came to the UK in the Windrush era and quickly used her tenacity to create safe communities for black people facing the hostility of the British public and systems.

 

Natalie refers to her grandmother taking up space and doing work that was required to do so.  Natalie notes that her grandmother's hard work and the demands of being a mother meant that she did not have much time to herself before she passed away suddenly in her 70's.  For Natalie this was a message for her to make sure she takes care of herself whilst she is alive, fit and well to reap the benefits.
