She explains how our energetic body, our intuition and our heart, can work in conjunction with one another. She answers common questions many of us have: Like how do we know if we are coming from our head or our heart? How can we ask for guidance when making difficult decisions? And what if we have a triggering or negative reaction to Kundalini yoga? Listen to learn more!

What if working within the confines of our mind is not enough for personal transformation? According to Kundalini yoga teacher and author, Karena Virginia, we cannot elevate our mindset until we heal our energy field first. For Karena, this was the missing link in all other healing modalities that she tried. Today, Karena breaks down the five energy layers that exist within your auric field. She walks us through each of these energy frequencies and how they relate to acupuncture, tapping, epigenetics, shamanic healing and prayer. If you are interested in the 8th chakra, auric field or energy medicine, this episode is for you!

Continuing our conversation with artist Katherine Skaggs, we dive into the basics of how YOU can start reading Tarot or Oracle cards at home. We cover: How to pick a deck and cleanse its energy. How you can work with one card a day to get in touch with your spirit guides and helpers. Katherine explains a ritual we can use to incorporate readings into our yoga and meditation practice. She also explains the concept of card “spreads” – what are they, how they work, and which basic ones we can start with. We end discussing how cards can sharpen your intuition – cards can be a tool to know who you are at a deeper level. Katherine also speaks to us about the role of the divine feminine – in our society and in her personal work as an artist. Listen to learn more!

How can we best incorporate Tarot and Oracle Cards into our spiritual practice? What are the benefits of doing this? What’s the difference between traditional Tarot versus the Oracle and Angel decks that have become popularized in recent years? Today, artist Katherine Skaggs outlines for us how cards are a divination of our subconscious. She teaches us how we can best frame our questions when working with card decks, and why we need to consider (and enhance) the quality of our ask. She explains why our intuitive interpretation of artwork is critical to understanding readings, and how to sharpen this skill. Katherine also shares the “system of symbols” that permeate all card decks, and how you can connect with these to enhance your readings. If you’re currently dabbling in (or want to learn more) about Tarot and Oracle cards, do not miss this week’s episodes!

How do the Chakras relate to the Medicine Wheel? What are archetypes? What does it mean to create “sacred space?” In today’s episode, we continue our conversation with Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner, Olivia Weil. She leads us through an “opening sacred space” ceremony that anyone can practice at home, either before yoga, meditation or to create a context for healing. She explains to us how we can understand archetypes as divine guides and teachers on our journey of transformation. Olivia also shares with us some of her favorite superfoods, as well as why she’s currently abstaining from all social media. There’s so much special knowledge generously offered up by Olivia in this special episode.
