Making Sense Of Trauma To Make Meaning Out Of Healing
56:01— “Trauma often separates us from our own self, leaving us feeling disjointed. We exile parts of us we feel are “bad”, and shame hides us from seeing our own reflection. Through healing, you can have a mind, body, spirit connection that ushers in a new sense of self-agency and self-alignment. If you have trauma or abuse in your human experience story, you are not alone. You are not broken. You do not need fixing. While we cannot go back and remove the trauma that we endured, we can find healing now in our present and live our best, authentic life!” - Sara Valeria interviews Sara Miley — She is an experienced crisis advocate and an IFS-informed trauma recovery coach.

The Healing Power Of Your Drainage Pathways
50:06— This inability to get rid of waste and toxins - compounded by the detrimental effects of chronic stress, dehydration, and a lack of oxygen and nutrients - opens the door for sickness, disease, and other health problems to take root. This is why it's important to look at healing from a systemic level rather than just looking at all the symptoms you're experiencing. They might have a bunch of different names and diagnoses, but at the root of all your symptoms are unhealthy cells that don't have what they need to heal and thrive. Just because you're eating healthy, drinking lots of water, or taking supplements doesn't mean that those nutrients are getting into your cells. Why? Because the cell might be too toxic to accept them. If your cells are unable to absorb the nutrients, then those nutrients just pass right through you. Cells are only as healthy as the environment they live in. If you want to get well, you have to change the state of the environment within and around your cells. They cannot heal in the same environment that made them sick. In order for your cells to start healing, you've got to understand a few important principles. This is what this episode is about! Valeria interviews Heather Creson — She is a Cellular Optimization Specialist who helps people regain their vitality and re-engage in life after experiencing debilitating health concerns.

Healing From Emotional Trauma In Relationships
50:58— “We either operate our lives from a place of fear or love. It alternates for some based on where they are in their process of growth...or journey in life.

The Breath Of Acceptance
1:04:06— Over the landscape of time, there is change. Change inherently includes loss. People you love pass on from this life, or move away. Loss can also be a chapter in your life ending and a new one beginning. Or it can be old ways of being giving way to new ones. When you are missing someone or something, give your heart space and time. Whatever feeling is present, breathe into it. Let it be felt. Maybe you cry. Maybe you feel angry. Maybe you laugh in remembrance of a joyful connection. Whatever is felt in the moment, this is part of the richness of your love. Grief exists because of love and connection. Even when there’s pain in a connection, its loss will be a grieving (and an opportunity to heal the pain). Whatever is present in your heart, breathe into it and let it be felt. Breathe it out as a blessing, because what you’re feeling is part of the richness of heart. All the flavors of remembrance, loss, anger, sadness - whatever you are feeling - are part of the richness of your heart. Valeria interviews Megumi Burr-Tolliver — She is a Vortexhealing® Divine Energy Healing Practitioner, Founder Of Compassion Tree Healing, Intentional Community Co-Founder, Writer, Teacher And Speaker. An important stream in Megumi’s life showed up in early childhood when she learned to only express in the range of “appropriate.” Probably something of her expression had been too out of the box for others’ comfort. Growing up, she felt everyone was missing what mattered. But she didn’t know what that was, and it wasn’t in the range of what was appropriate to acknowledge. As a teen, she knew she wanted to “understand others and myself” and “help others and myself.” Her adult path gradually uncovered what that meant, as she developed feeling and knowing from within, and stepped into roles supporting others. Another important stream came in as her dad, husband and mom passed. Megumi experiences life as inclusive of death, grief and remembering. Megumi’s unfolding path currently has her co-founding a small, land-based intentional community in Vermont. Her practice, Compassion Tree Healing, supports moms and nurturers who want to find their center and grounding, using highest-level tools from VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing. She creates nurturing spaces where people anywhere in the world can be with themselves with compassion. Leading up to this point, she supported pregnancy, postpartum and moms as Compassion Tree Mama Care, including as a massage therapist, birth and postpartum doula, and yoga and movement teacher. She has also co-led workshops and classes. Megumi’s current and next chapters involve cultivating deep listening and communication with self, others and land.

God Is Female! The Future Is Female!
32:52— “In my opinion, the problem with Christianity (and the Old Testament writings before Jesus) is that we have neglected our Mother Spirit, Sophia. She is clearly identified and discussed in the Bible but the writers and founders of Christianity (all men) have neglected to identify her as a centrical figure in our faith. Why were the early writers, the early Christian founders, and Christians of this day so offended by the idea of God being female? First, Western thinkers struggle with both/and. We like to compartmentalize everything into this box OR that box. We have a hard time understanding that God could be BOTH male and female. Ohhhh doesn't that come a little too close to identifying God as "gender fluid" and we don't like that one! But Eastern thinkers (Jesus, being one) easily embrace the idea of both/and. They easily recognize the yin and yang of most concepts in all things. This is called non-duality. They embrace the idea that two or more things can be true at the same time. Christians today like to think in the dualistic terms of either/or. Everything is either holy or evil. Right or wrong. Bad or good. Unfortunately for them, the Bible is a collection of non-dualistic concepts. Second, early canon collectors saw women as weak. Let's face it. Men throughout history have seen women as weak. The fragile, too-emotional sex that must be dominated and ruled with a firm hand. Left to our own devices, we are too permissible, too mouthy, too inconsistent, too weak. I don't know about you but I often heard these words spoken about me or my sisters. So, God is described as a strong, male warrior. He provides for and protects his family. Great. But the problem with describing God as only male is that he too often jumps over to the toxic/extreme attributes of masculinity without the much-needed female characteristics. Look around you. A lot of men are so deeply offended by the idea of balanced anima/animus energy. They cannot tolerate the idea that the softer, female characteristics of nurturing, protecting, and emotional attunement could possibly describe them or their God. So, we have an epidemic of toxically masculine men who refuse to recognize the female attributes of God and refuse to grow their own emotional intelligence. Now, in fairness, I have noticed women taking this concept to the other extreme (remember, we are either/or thinkers). Some women have run with this concept and yelling out in the streets, "GOD IS FEMALE! THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!" without recognizing that God is both/and. Ladies, toxic femininity is also a thing. So, how is all of this sitting with you? Do you find yourself angry or resistant to the idea of God being also female? Why? What do you think might happen if Christians began to embrace Mother God? Notice feelings that surface: anger, fear, dismissiveness? What might happen to you if you became more receptive of the feminine attributes of God? How might this understanding of Scripture change you for the better?” ~ Brittney Valeria interviews Dr. Brittney Doll — She is a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist. Her doctorate research centered on rebuilding self-agency after experiencing religious trauma. In her private practice, Dr. Brittney primarily works with women who have experienced trauma in childhood, relationships, or religious/cult experiences.

How To Reverse Any Serious Health Issue Naturally
41:04— The Simplicity of good health starts with understanding the simplicity of how we are wonderfully made. Everybody knows that our body is supposed to be about 85% water, and as a general rule of thumb, a person can only survive without water for about 3 days. Dehydration happens quickly, causing extreme thirst, fatigue, and ultimately, organ failure and death. A person may go from feeling thirsty and slightly sluggish on the first day with no water to having organ failure by the third day. But there is something that is just as important to our good health as staying hydrated. It’s understanding, how we are wonderfully made and then living our life according to this knowledge. So here it is. Our body is an electrical chemical factory. Every cell in our body is made up of trillions of atoms. For this discussion, there are basically only to types of atoms. You have atoms that have a positive electrical charge to them which we will call, the demolition and clean up atoms. These atoms in the medical industry are called free-radical atoms. When there is an overload of free radical atoms in any of our cells, they can damage every molecule in our cells: our DNA, proteins, lipids, mitochondria and so on. To keep it simple, anything with a positive electrical charge to it is overloaded with free radical Atoms. The other type of atom that makes up each and every cell has a negative electrical charge to it, and the medical industry calls these atoms, Anti-oxidants. To keep it simple, anything with a negative electrical charge to it, is an anti-oxidant. Its anti-oxidant atoms that give every cell in your body the energy to function properly and repair any damage to your cells, tissues and organs. It is a fact, that all diseases start at the cell level, not at the organ or system level. Every cell in you body has to maintain a certain negative electrical charge to function properly. When free-radicals rob the electrons out of your healthy cells they no longer have the energy to function properly and disease and illness will set in. Wherever the weakest cells are in your body, this and this alone will actually determine what health condition that you get. It’s really that simple. Learn more by listening to this episode! Valeria interviews Philip Bresnahan — He is a Clinical Research Analyst. 18 years ago, he was rushed to the hospital with very high blood pressure. In that same year he was diagnosed with Cancer. Philip didn’t to want to have a stroke and end up in a wheelchair not being able to feed himself. He also didn’t want to get Cancer again and be given Chemo or radiation or die from the Cancer. So he spent the next 15 years being a Clinical Research Analyst, studying what had been discovered about the root cause of practically every disease known to mankind. Philip knows that when you treat the root cause of any disease, you are giving the body what it needs to repair itself as it was designed to do. In his studies, he discovered the simplicity of how we are wonderfully made. In so doing, he also discovered the root cause of practically every disease known to mankind even Cancer. Philip now just wants to share this information with the world.

Healing & Spirituality: The Human Race Will Rise Again
1:13:05— The human race will rise again. We were born for joy, and one day joy will return to us as spring always returns, bursting with life and light after the freezing winter. The human race will rise again as the cold hard masculine mind opens up to the soft warm spirit of the feminine as our solid frozen selves begin to melt and merge with nature again and selfishness gives way to empathy, and hierarchy to equality and the impulse to connect transcends the desire for control. The human race will rise again as our senses begin to wake from centuries of sleep and nature shines with sacredness again and we’re dazzled by the world’s pristine beauty and awed by the depths of meaning which reveal themselves beneath the old flat surface of reality. The human race will rise again, and is slowly rising now. The shift is slowly settling. Balance is returning, a new structure is emerging, a pattern of vibrant new colors and shapes with a new kind of harmony, more complex and dynamic, an order that’s stronger because it incorporates chaos, a sanity that’s deeper because it arose out of madness. The human race will rise again. The war will end, and the world will heal and life will no longer be a frenzied struggle, full of stress and fear but a glorious adventure, full of grace and ease, no longer a punishment to be endured, but a privilege to be savored. We were born for wholeness, and we will be whole again. We were born for joy, and we will return to joy. The human race will rise again. — by Steve Taylor Valeria interviews Dr. Kiran Syed — She is a licensed clinical telepsychologist in the states of Hawaii, Texas, and Vermont.
