Let’s go a layer deeper than we normally do when talking about the chakra system.

Sure, we know the Root Chakra is about “safety” and “security,” but what does that mean at an energetic, soul level? Why is mastery of the lower 4 chakras so essential to our success in the world? Sharing examples from my own life, I discuss how you can unpack and decode these energy centers to figure out what energetic patterns are blocking you. Let’s do this! Join me for a special New Year’s Eve workshop to go deeper at: www.brettlarkin.com/nye

Today, we continue our conversation with Elizabeth Bishop, creator of the Conscious Service Approach. We talk about service-based relationships as a container for self-discovery and enlightenment. We discuss why you don’t need to “protect yourself” from the negative energy of others and what you can do instead. Elizabeth shares with us her methodology for how each of us can create a personal philosophy to integrate who we are with how we serve. Anyone who has ever been a teacher, healer, service professional or cared for an ailing love one, will love this heartfelt episode.

Empaths, teachers and healing professionals often experience burnout, exhaustion, and compassion fatigue. Today we tackle the question: How can we passionately serve others without sacrificing our own personal wellbeing? I interview Elizabeth Bishop, creator of the Conscious Service Approach, designed to support healing professionals to reconnect with and fulfill their desire to make a difference in the lives of those they support. We discuss: caring for students, clients or a loved-one with an injury or chronic illness, tips for self-compassion, and how to avoid overextending yourself.

How do we shake off the programming we inherit from our parents and our culture? How do we notice when we’re living in a particular energetic pattern, and break free? How do we learn to cherish or own unique, innate value? To get in touch with our own soul? These are the questions I explore today with Lee McCormick, author of the The Heart Reconnection Guidebook: A Guided Journey of Personal Discovery and Self-Awareness. Behind the roles you play in life – mother, father, wife, husband, employee – who ARE you, really? Listen to this deep, contemplative interview with Lee to get your wheels turning.
