When you are trapped in all or nothing thinking, you experience your life in extreme terms: It's either perfect or a disaster.
This is known as distorted thinking (or cognitive distortion) because life is a mixed bag for all of us. And it really affects our spiritual life – we think we must be perfect and manage perfectly; otherwise, we've failed.
This episode will cover how to know when you are in this thinking mode, and how to get out of it.

103. Finding Relief From an Excessive Mental Load
26:56What is a mental load? The invisible, non-tangible tasks involved in operating a family are called the mental load, also known as cognitive labour. The mental load is the unseen – not necessarily the physical tasks but the remembering of all of the daily stuff that needs to be done – so shopping, dinner prep or when laundry needs doing – it also includes reaching out to other family members and remembering birthdays. In this episode, we explore how you can climb down from having an excessive mental load and bring more balance into your daily life.

99. Dealing with Narcissism in Our Lives
33:06We’ve all come into contact with someone who displays narcissistic tendencies. We’ve likely displayed some of these tendencies ourselves at some point in our lives. But did you know that there’s more than one type of narcissist? We call the narcissists we tend to know and love ‘overt narcissists’, and the traits they tend to display are well known. But there’s another type. The covert narcissist - and they are much harder to spot. In this episode, we're going to do a deep dive into covert narcissists, and how we can work to heal and release that energy shamanically.

97. ReFocus Week: Escaping the Blame Game
33:13When painful or difficult things happen in life, how do you react? Do you immediately want to know whose fault it is? Blaming is the habit of making other people or things ‘wrong’ or responsible when difficult things happen. But blaming never helps anyone or solves a problem. It is insidious and it is the wind that gives momentum to negative drama in our lives. Learning to let go of blame is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself and others. In this week's refocus episode, we'll be taking a deep dive into blame and how you can free yourself from being a blame space
96. The Shadow, what is it and how do you work safely with it?
25:27When we talk about the shadow, we mean all the parts we deny, hide, repress or reject about ourselves. It’s called the shadow because it hasn’t been captured by the light of our consciousness and because it has been banned from the surface of our visible life. In this week's episode, we'll be taking a dive into shadow, finding out what it really is & learning how to begin working with it.
95. Refocus Week | Enslaved Empath vs Empowered Empath
40:15Empaths are highly sensitive individuals who have a keen ability to sense what people around them are thinking and feeling. We usually use the term "empath" to describe a person who experiences a great deal of empathy, often to the point of taking on others' pain at their own expense. This episode takes another look at the difference between enslaved and empowered empaths, and what you can do about it if you are enslaved or 'at the mercy' of your gifts (i.e taking on unwanted energy).
