Episode 60: Collapsing Timelines

Episode 60: Collapsing Timelines

October 1, 2022

When you’re told that a project is going to take six months to a year, and it ends up being completed within the same day…

This is an example of what we call Collapsing Timelines.

And no matter how big or small the win, when you collapse a timeline, it feels miraculous… like you’re holding a magic wand.

In this episode, I share with you a simple, yet fun, example of how I unexpectedly collapsed a timeline by simply allowing my soul to lead the way. Radical acceptance, innovation and being in the vibes of full-on trust allowed for an epic shift of circumstances. 

 

The FEM waitlist is NOW open.
Your mama intuition not only deserves to be heard, but it must be at the head of your health care table.
 
Becoming a Fiercely Empowered Mama will help you reclaim your power as a major part of your child’s healthcare team.
 
 
 
The doors are now open to my latest course, FEMbabes!
FEMbabes is my one-stop resource for everything I want the parents I serve to know about fertility, preconception care, consciously conceiving and showing up to pregnancy feeling fully empowered with both the why and how when it comes to nourishment for mama and babes.

Episode 59: When Things Don’t Go Your Way

Episode 59: When Things Don’t Go Your Way

September 23, 2022

What do you do when things just don’t go your way?

When you don’t get the results you wanted?

When you feel like you’re trying and it’s NOT working?

When you feel like you're failing or, even worse, that you failed?

Let’s talk about this.

In today’s episode, I share with you my steps for working through it. No matter how big or small the circumstances — how big or small the perceived loss or failure — this will get you back on the freedom path fast.

 

The FEM waitlist is NOW open.
Your mama intuition not only deserves to be heard, but it must be at the head of your health care table.

Episode 58: My Favorite Piece of Evidence of the Universe Having My Back

Episode 58: My Favorite Piece of Evidence of the Universe Having My Back

September 16, 2022

Here’s what I know to be true... 

When you make the decision to be all in with your soul’s purpose, your mission, your big (and scary) dream, the Universe will conspire to support you in making it happen in the most profound and unpredictable ways. 

You have to decide first and make that first move.

THEN. Things start to fall into place.

This is exactly what happened when I left my corporate career in 2018, said YES to building Fiercely Empowered Mama and committed to the mission of getting naturopathy in as many homes as possible. 

I had no idea how I was going to do it… alone.

But being alone never happened.

On the heels of my very last day, I was unexpectedly gifted the most talented human to run with…Rachel Nephew, my first TeamTonya member. 

And man, did we run. 

In today’s episode, Rachel and I reflect back to the beginning of our journey together. Not in a million years did we see this relationship happening or evolving to where it has… but here we are, four years later.

It’s been an amazing journey, to say the least. 

You’ll get insider details on how it all began and why we never saw it coming.

I hope you find yourself feeling all our good vibes and that this conversation gives you that extra nudge (if you need it) to make that next move toward your dreams. 

While Rachel is still on the team (yay for me!), she’s also in the process of starting her own events business, inspired by her thrill at creating settings where people can come together and revel in the goodness life has to offer. She’s passionate about dreaming up and creating all the big and small things that elevate an experience.

Episode 57: Rethinking How to Boost the Immune System for Back to School

Episode 57: Rethinking How to Boost the Immune System for Back to School

September 9, 2022
Today’s podcast is inspired by all the posts I’ve been seeing online lately that are asking, “What should I do to boost my child’s immune system before they head back to school?”
 
And as you may have guessed, 99% of the time, the response they get back is a recommendation for elderberry syrup.
 
Don’t get me wrong, I love elderberry syrup. But it isn’t something I've ever done as a daily immune supporter for myself or my child.
 
My goal has never been for my kid to NOT get sick.
 
Yes, you read that right. I stand for true resiliency. I stand for the foundational work of mineralization and removing toxicity. I stand for trusting the body’s inherit wisdom and built-in detoxification method.
 
Acute illness is part of growing up. It’s time to embrace it. Because when we welcome acute illness symptoms — without interfering with prescription or over-the-counter medication! — we create space for our children to grow and build true resiliency. 
The FEM waitlist is NOW open.
Your mama intuition not only deserves to be heard, but it must be at the head of your health care table.
 
Becoming a Fiercely Empowered Mama will help you reclaim your power as a major part of your child’s healthcare team.

Episode 55: You know that’s not how that works, right?

August 12, 2022

In today's episode, I talk about getting a taste of my own medicine.

As you may know, “medicine” doesn’t always taste good. But if we allow it into our lives, there’s always something beneficial in it for us.

In fact, getting a taste of our own medicine can be one of the fastest ways to shift and evolve to even higher standards.

Listen in as I share a real life scenario that opened my eyes to where I was working with some "sneaky" self-righteous energy.

Episode 54: Cleansing for Emotional Wellness with Jazmine Yearack

Episode 54: Cleansing for Emotional Wellness with Jazmine Yearack

July 29, 2022

There’s so much that’s possible when you say YES to this work. Most women find their way to the Cleansing Circle seeking a physical health upgrade. And, yes, the work we do fully addresses the root cause to ALL health issues. YES, all. 

If you trust the process like Jazmine did, you’ll likely find yourself having more than just physical wins.

In today’s episode, Jazmine shares the radical and amazing shifts she experienced that were beyond the physical. Through her cleansing process, she was able to expand her capacity to hold more peace and joy in her life and gained new understanding for her personal boundaries. She cherished the time it gifted her to slow down, and as she said, “cleansing will forever be part of my life now.”

 

About Jazmine

Jazmine is a wife and a mother of two, ages 7 and 3. She’s been a part of Fiercely Empowered Mama since 2019 and has had some major health upgrades over the past three years. During her time as a FEM and working with me, she’s healed in ways she’d heard was possible but now has been able to see and experience for herself. After leaving the western medical doctors’ offices in tears, feeling confused and discouraged, she connected with me. And her first custom protocol started her healing in incredible ways. 

 

Jazmine says:

- I have healed on so many levels. My digestive tract (intestines, gallbladder, liver) are healing so beautifully. My eliminations went from mush and liquid to solid and beautiful.  

- I trust and listen to my body to let me know when it’s time to slow down, de-stress, breathe and just be present. 

- The white spots and bumps on nails are almost completely cleared. 

- My fear is no longer driving. Worst case is no longer my first thought.  

- I have built up my body for so many years. I finally got to cleanse and it was amazing! Game changer. I’ll cleanse regularly from now on! 

- My gratitude for this work has provided a level of believing that I didn’t know was possible. I have tools, I have resources and I believe the body can heal when given the right support.

Episode 53: A Really Big Conversation with Jillian Bashi on Fertility and Her Incredible Cleansing Wins

Episode 53: A Really Big Conversation with Jillian Bashi on Fertility and Her Incredible Cleansing Wins

July 22, 2022

Jillian Bashi recently made a post on my personal Facebook page encouraging any woman struggling with fertility issues to join my Cleansing Circle

She wrote, “It took me seven years to have a healthy baby girl, and now she’s here and so healthy.” And instantly while reading it, I thought, WE must tell her story! 

There’s never ever been a greater time to be tuned into our health and to protect the purity of our genetics and fertility. If you struggle with fertility or know someone who does, this conversation will not only fill you with hope — it will also shine light on the path that’s available for you to walk to harmonize your body.

 

Join us in this episode as we talk about:

  • 03:06 — How Jillian came to know me, starting with a Facebook ad, at the end of 2020. She had no idea who I was, but she’s very in tune with her intuition and felt that there was something here for her.

  • 04:21 — Jillian’s experience and journey with naturopathy, beginning when she was a teenager. How connecting with me and coming into my programs anchored her back onto that track.

  • 06:43 — How her first year in Fiercely Empowered Mama was exactly what she needed. How she felt so at home in the FEM community, learned new things and experienced so much support.

  • 07:56 — Her experience saying yes to the Cleansing Circle. Jillian remembers thinking, “I want it all! I’m signing up right away!”

  • 08:25 — Jillian’s first Master Cleanse at age 19 before she met me, her initial resistance and her feelings around the mindset of commitment when it comes to doing a cleanse. In the Cleansing Circle, there’s a calibration of ease and flow that Jillian modeled. She was fierce in her commitment, in the energy of “a full-body, chills, activated, step-into-my-power detox.”

  • 13:09 — All of the support she received from the Cleansing Circle program and how she had the tools she needed.

  • 15:07 — How environmental toxins, like glyphosate, are at play in our world, and the ways they impact our minerals. How Jillian targeted this in her cleanse.

  • 18:00 — Male fertility and low sperm count rates. 

  • 19:33 — The post-cleanse high and glow Jillian felt, and how she held her wellness, balance and that feeling of thriving in life... And then she found out she was pregnant. 

  • 21:54 — Jillian’s fertility story — how she’s been pregnant five times, her devastating miscarriage at 21 weeks, the ways she worked on her hormones to have her first baby, and the ease with which she got pregnant and had a really healthy second child after her cleanse. 

  • 26:44 — How, at the end of the day, all things — including fertility — come down to removing obstacles and changing the way we’re becoming more fully mineralized. Jillian’s story of a healthier, easier pregnancy after just 10 days of cleansing is common among women in the Cleansing Circle. 

  • 28:59 — Her previous fear of being pregnant only to miscarry, and the ways she healed that trauma. The sense she had that her pregnancy with her daughter was going to be fine. Her peaceful, natural water birth at a birthing center. How alert her daughter was when she was born, how different of an experience Jillian’s second pregnancy was after detoxing, and how her daughter has so many fewer sensitivities. 

  • 33:26 — What Jillian wishes she had known previously, the ways she wants to inspire women in their understanding of how all of the time around a pregnancy matters, and the gratitude she feels for FEM and the Cleansing Circle in helping bring this beautiful soul to the planet.

  • 34:09 — My reflection on my pregnancy, and what it was like witnessing Jillian’s connection, conviction and embodiment of this work during her pregnancy. This is how we change the world!

  • 37:06 — The startling statistic that by 2040, it’s estimated that 50% of babies born in the U.S. will be born with a birth defect. Understanding that we have access to powerful ways to change this story.
  • 37:38 — The ways babies communicate with us and how we tend to label them “good babies” or “not good babies” based on how they sleep or how much they scream and cry. How these things are actually communications of their toxic load and more, and how this relates to preventing the heartache of miscarriage.

  • 41:17 — The cycle of mineral deficiency we're in and how it affects our body's use of vitamins and amino acids. The heightened stress in our world and how it burns through our minerals. How we’re depleted now and from our lineage, and how minerals can help us neutralize toxicity and heal.

  • 42:52 — How a first baby is a mom’s ultimate detox. How we need to think about what our first child is getting from us, as far as toxins and our mineral reserves we give them. And how this depleted state of mineralization affects subsequent children we have, and how Jillian relates this to postpartum depression.

  • 44:57 — How Jillian so beautifully models with her daughter how she’s integrated her work into her life and her purpose. How this postpartum time has been so different for her this time around and how she’s honored that space.

  • 48:32 — Choosing to live in a paradigm where we value our bodies as much as our hearts, especially now when time feels like it’s on hyper speed.

  • 50:41 — Why Jillian recommends accessing the support of the Cleansing Circle, where you get the community and the guidance of someone skilled and licensed to lead you in how to do this work. How I created the Cleansing Circle specifically so women can successfully complete a cleanse and decrease their toxic overload. How this community and support can enable you to experience the momentum, completion and gratification of keeping your channels open, going deeper with the work, eating in a way that’s super nourishing, and more.

  • 53:44 — The big project I have in the works to upgrade the Cleansing Circle, the rebrand the program is going through, and the ways Jillian appreciates all of the consistent up-leveling we do in FEM and the Cleansing Circle.

  • 55:31 — How you can find Jillian. Her work is gold! Her private Facebook group has over 60 free trainings available. She embodies and brings all of her spiritual gifts, and she honors her essence to help spiritual entrepreneurs and healers heal themselves and connect with their soul’s purpose. It’s so in her soul to show up big for people who also serve.

  • 58:57 — The ripple effect of healing your body, owning and honoring your path, pulling back the veil and stepping into your purpose.

Your thoughts can instantly expand you with faith or send you in a spiral of doubt. 

One of the key ingredients to feeling better is having better feeling thoughts. That’s what today’s podcast is all about. 

Plus, I leave you with some really amazing questions that I’ve been using to keep the good vibes flowing.

Episode 51: Is Healing Your Fascia Your Next Health Upgrade?

Episode 51: Is Healing Your Fascia Your Next Health Upgrade?

July 1, 2022

Earlier this week, I had a conversation with Jennifer Feldman about the fascial system, what it is and why it's SO important. Facia is our structure, our essence, everything that makes us, us. There's so much beauty and power in healing it. 

You will learn SO much from this one episode. I can guarantee you will have an ah-ha that could very well be the breadcrumb for your next health upgrade. 

Our bodies reflect our lives. And there’s a level of health we can have that’s much better than having no pain.

Join me in this episode to learn more about how this therapy effectively removes restrictions physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. 

When we take the power back by working on ourselves in this way, it can shift the outcome of our lives.

 

Jennifer and I talk about:

  • 3:21 — What the facial system and facial releases are.

  • 6:34 — How this therapy effectively removes restrictions physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically, and how, ideally, we want to be as young as possible in our fascia.

  • 9:14 — What we can learn from watching our pets about using pandiculation to upgrade our fascia.

  • 13:48 — The types of cases Jennifer sees, how she figures out what’s going on and how she works with her patients to problem solve.

  • 17:00 — A whole new way of looking at posture — how it’s not a diligence problem and good posture doesn’t start in the upper body.

  • 20:44 — How trauma is stored in the fascia and plays into aspects of our whole being, and what we can learn from ducks about releasing it.

  • 28:59 — How Jennifer reads the body from a physical plane and draws connections to who her patients are as people, and the emotional releases she sees during their sessions as they heal the energetic body. 

  • 31:47 — Accessing the level of health that’s much better than no pain and how there’s always an upgrade available — getting to a state where you’re living a higher-level life.

  • 35:32 — Being here for the ease and flow, and the almost instant radical upgrade I experienced during my session with Jennifer. How quickly facial sessions can turn into truly pivotal times of expansion.

  • 36:41 — Knowing what you want and having the ability to do it. Fully embodying your life and whatever you desire without anything holding you back. Finding clarity and improving your ability to make decisions by going to your body and getting back into the physical.

  • 38:37 — The ability to feel your body, feel your organs — physical awareness is what we’re going for. 

  • 41:31 — How a woman would benefit from this work in their menstrual cycle and during preconception, pregnancy and postpartum. And Jennifer’s personal experience with this — as a new mom, she’s super passionate about this work for women and their pregnancy journeys.

  • 49:04 — My experience giving birth, Jennifer’s perspective on pelvic flexibility and the potential for incredible birth experiences when we’re tuned in to the body. The importance of the position of the baby in your body.

  • 53:04 — The role facia plays postpartum and the importance of body work in fully completing the delivery — feeling wholeness postpartum.

  • 57:29 — How we can care for our facia, where to get started and all the easy, free things you can do at home starting now. Taking the power back in working on ourselves. The way 5-10 minutes of doing these things every day can shift the outcome of your life.

  • 1:02:55 — Pandiculation and the issues with over-stretching. The power of mindful, contracted beautiful movements.

  • 1:06:22 — Joint mobility and stability and the ways they relate to the parasympathetic nervous system, anxiety and feeling solid in the world.

  • 1:08:58 — How to connect and work with Jennifer — if you’re not local to Grand Rapids, she does work virtually and can also recommend a practitioner in your area.
