Do you have challenges protecting your independence and creating boundaries? (Um hi, me too! 🙋♀️)
In honor of 4th of July in the U.S., I’m kicking off this month with a solo episode about independence and boundaries. Moving forward every month of the podcast will have a theme, so this is our theme for the rest of July. In this episode I share some of my own struggles with creating clear boundaries, as well as my journey back to myself after a tough break-up. I also talk about one of my favorite ideas: honoring our boundaries as if they were the semi-permeable membrane of a cell. You’ll hear about “holding your own energy” as you access the world around you, what it means to be securely attached, and the Buddhist gates of speech. I’m sharing this information because I think it’s an incredibly important place to start in identifying our truth. It’s only once we are truly in touch with ourselves that we can you find the freedom to express and speak our truth.
