Power is knowing you have a choice. Power is feeling safe.  Power is standing in your own energy unapologetically. Power is using your VOICE. 

Power is Prana, your life force energy flowing through, around and inside of you keeping you ALIVE. 

Connecting to the element of AIR. 

So how do you harness this power, this Prana, and what does podcasting have to do with it?

The collective is calling us to remember our roots. The spiritual path can sometimes feel lonely and unsettling as your Spirit elevates to an expanded state of consciousness.

The whole concept of "leadership" and what it means to truly be a leader in your life isn't something that has to involve a specific title or role you play, but an inherent feeling within you to take back your power and know you have all the answers already inside of you. 

If you've been waiting for permission or a sign to take your power back, know it starts with YOU!

Your word is your wand, as the great Florence Scovel Shinn said. Words are energy, and have such immense power that is exercised through your voice. The feminine voice has historically been suppressed, and so many women have been called to the cause to rise, speak up, and elevate the feminine collective. 

One such femme force is my guest on this episode, Sarah Haefling, who has impressively started her own podcast at 24 years old, a...

Among our youth, ages 18-25 this number increases to 1 in 3. 

Yes, 1 in 3 people ages 18-25 suffer. 

Most in silence.
