#44 Lucid Dreaming and Shadow Integration with Charlie Morley
44:46Charlie is a world-renowned teacher and best selling author on lucid dreaming, shadow integration and Mindfuness of Dream & Sleep. He is a sought-after speaker and has helped thousands of people deepen their spiritual practice through the art of lucid dreaming and shadow integration... you don’t want to miss this one! This episode is full of light-hearted, practical and wise guidance on how to begin or bring more depth to your experience within the dream world. In this podcast, we explore how the subconscious mind is more easily accessible to interact with and understand while dreaming, and how you can cocreate deep healing of your shadow in this space. Within the shadow of the human psyche lies the parts of ourselves that we have chosen - consciously or subconsciously - to hide, deny, or disown as a means of seeking connection and avoiding rejection from ourselves or others. The golden shadow that Charlie refers to in this episode comes from Carl Jung “the shadow is 90% pure gold.” This is an invitation to begin accepting and embracing shadow work as the space by which deep healing and transformation can occur. Shadow work and integration invites you to face the fears, traits, desires or impulses you have hid, denied, or disowned about yourself; inviting a new depth of healing to your mind, body and soul. The work Charlie introduces is a way for you to intentionally interact with and heal the shadow parts of your psyche. This work is accessible to you in waking or dream states, and serves as a means to fully embrace and accept all aspects of yourself, leading to a more authentic embodiment of your full being. Shadow work is one of the most loving things you can do for yourself in this life, and Charlie gives us the insights and practical tools to do this work when we have access to the subconscious mind during sleep. Key Points From This Episode: A simple definition of lucid dreaming How to respond when you are experiencing nightmares or anxious dreams A deeper dive into what Charlie means by the concept of “the golden shadow” How to support your children through nightmares How you can use the interplay between dream and waking life as therapy for yourself How you can intentionally meet your shadow in lucid and non-lucid dreams How to become your own dream dictionary, and why googling dreams may not be the best way to interpret your dreams A deeper look at the 4 D’s of lucid dreaming: dream recall, dream diary, dream signs, dream planning Who “The Dreamer” that Charlie refers to is One of Meg’s recurring dreams, and the collaborative interpretation of this dream with Charlie “Compassion to all beings is the greatest miracle of all” - Charlie Morley Links Mentioned in Today’s Episode: Charlie Morley Dreaming Through Darkness TEDxSanDiego 2011 - Lucid Dreaming, Embracing Nightmares Charlie Morley on Twitter The Body Positivity Journal The Lotus Collective
#43 Sacred Sexuality with Bianca Marzouk
45:53This week’s episode of the Manifest Miracles Podcast is with Bianca Marzouk, a certified sex, love, and relationship coach who has partnered with women around the world to support them in igniting their divine sexuality, cultivating their unique powers, and expressing their authentic selves. Sexual energy is one of the most potent ways we carry energy as human beings. Tapping into your sacred sexuality and expressing yourself through embodiment of this magnificent energy goes beyond sex - it can bring vibrancy and new levels of creativity to every facet of your life! Aligning with your unique sensual essence is a potent way to fuel your authentic expression, and this episode gives you wise insights and tools to begin or deepen your journey in this realm. Our understanding of sexuality is directly impacted by the way our families, cultures and society at large portray the image of sexual nature. In this episode Bianca unpacks many common limiting beliefs that occur as a byproduct of deep sexual shame and guilt, and invites us to unlearn and unchoose those narratives so we can begin to embody the nature of our own sacred sexuality. You can expect to explore the following themes in this podcast: What sacred sexuality is, and how Bianca serves to help women reclaim this essence The distinction between sex and sacred sexuality How couples can shift their sexual experiences from goal-oriented to energetically experiential Common limiting beliefs around sex, and how to navigate them to empowerment The Wild Woman archetype, and how each of us can recognize and embody this inherent nature within ourselves How to embark on a journey of sacred sexuality, and how life changes as a result Some common warning signs that you are misaligned with your sexual energy Tweetables: “Something that I find so beautiful about sacred sexuality is that it's really a way to practice our connection with the divine, in union with another person.” — Bianca Marzouk [0:04:07] “There's that very deep one that is ‘not worthy', which is a wound that I've encountered with every single person I've worked with, men, women, couples. There’s this deep sense of, “Somehow I'm not worthy of love. And when I'm not worthy of love, I'm not worthy of pleasure.”” — Bianca Marzouk [0:14:43] “The way that she defines orgasm is that it's a buildup of sexual energy. And then a movement of that energy through the body, and then shift in our mind where we surrender to that energy.” — Bianca Marzouk [0:17:55] “Miracles are these moments when the Divine is saying like, “Hey, I'm here.” You know, “I'm with you. And you are marvelous. And you are a beautiful creation of this existence.”” — Bianca Marzouk [0:42:33] Links Mentioned in Today’s Episode: Bianca Marzouk Bianca Marzouk on Instagram Bianca Marzouk Integrative Love & Sexuality Coaching on Facebook Women's Anatomy of Arousal: Secret Maps to Buried Pleasure #Yonisinnature on Instagram The Body Positivity Journal The Lotus Collective
