Episode Date
BONUS: Why Tarot cards are not evil
19:13

I've sometimes heard from people that the Tarot is evil, and that using Tarot cards opens us up to negative forces and energies. I have also met people who are afraid of using the Tarot for these kinds of reasons. Is there any veracity to this?

In this bonus episode of INNER WORK, I address the belief that Tarot cards are evil. Join me for a discussion of:

  • religious references and thoughts on Tarot cards & "divination"
  • why Tarot cards - and other healing tools & practices - have been condemned throughout history
  • powerful ways of using the Tarot that don't involve fortune-telling or divination
  • the Doreen Virtue situation (and her ban on Tarot cards)

 

As always, everything in this episode is my personal opinion.

AWAKENING: What are you allowing to take up residence in you?
30:14

Your physical body is like a container for your Soul and Higher Self. But what happens when you've filled up this container with too many intrusive "guests", and your Higher Self is unable to anchor into your body? Why is it important to be able to fully embody your Higher Self? That's what we'll explore in this episode of AWAKENING.

Some of the intrusive or unwelcome guests that can occupy your body and energy field include the Overachiever, the Fixer, the Victim, and the Approval Seeker.

These are subpersonalities, or limited aspects of you that can get triggered by certain situations and people. Join me for a conversation on:

  • the 6 most common subpersonalities that block your Higher Self and sabotage your healing
  • how to begin noticing what you're allowing to take up residence within you
  • the importance of recognizing the opposing agendas of your subpersonalities, so you can resolve inner conflict
  • how to make more room for your Higher Self to enter

AWAKENING: Feeling lonely on the spiritual path
40:54

Walking the path of spiritual awakening can be a lonely experience at times. As you wake up more and more, you might find you're no longer resonating with many (or most) of the people in your life. And it can be difficult to explain what you're going through.

This episode of AWAKENING explores the loneliness of awakening. Join me for a conversation on:

  • spiritual awakening and your ego identity
  • what it means to experience ego death (and why it can feel so terrifying)
  • living life asleep versus living life awake - and why you can't go back now
  • the importance of mourning your old self 
  • how to allow and create new, more meaningful, more aligned relationships in your life

 

Please know that you're not alone. Thank you for being here and supporting the podcast by leaving a positive rating or review, if this episode felt helpful in some way.

AWAKENING: Why you resist slowing down
26:02
Speed, efficiency, multitasking, and productivity are highly valued in our modern culture. This means we've lost touch with the slower rhythms and pace of nature and our inner selves.

This episode of AWAKENING is all about the remarkable benefits of slowing down and pacing yourself, as well as what prevents you from doing so. Join me for a discussion of:

  • how we've become disconnected from a slower rhythm of life (and the consequences of this)
  • what drives you to keep rushing, pushing, and trying to be productive at all times
  • the key, deeper fears that fuel the dysfunctional behavior of rushing
  • the protective mechanism that sometimes prevents you from slowing down if you have frozen trauma in your body or nervous system
  • insightful prompts to start exploring your own relationship to time and productivity

Inner Work 129: Shifting from the ego paradigm to the Akashic paradigm
29:55

How do the Akashic Records work, and how can you access them? What are the Akashic Records made of? Where are they located? What is the Akashic Field?

To answer such questions, this episode of Inner Work takes you into the research of Ervin Laszlo, a Hungarian philosopher and systems theorist who has written extensively about the Akashic Field (or A-field).

I cover the 3 immutable laws that govern the Akashic Field, and how those laws can be applied in your daily life to reach higher levels of consciousness and evolution.

This then leads into a discussion about what it means to shift from an ego-based paradigm to an Akashic paradigm of living and being.

I quote from Laszlo's book The Immutable Laws of the Akashic Field throughout this episode.

AWAKENING: Leaving behind the things you've outgrown
23:09

The process of awakening will cause you to outgrow certain situations, relationships, people, habits, and ways of thinking/being. This happens naturally as you evolve and shed old, outdated layers of yourself.

In this episode, partly inspired by the 8 of Cups from the Tarot, I talk about this process of outgrowing things and people and how it can bring up some deep fears of losing your identity, status, and the life you've been building for years or even decades.

Join me for a conversation on:

  • possible signs & indicators that you've outgrown something
  • how to deal with the discomfort of walking away from an established relationship, career, or personal situation
  • how to start figuring out what needs to be released from your life
  • the importance of conserving your energy by stepping away from the things, people, and situations that no longer fit you

Inner Work 128: Going beyond the limits of conventional medicine to heal the whole self w/ Dr. Lissa Rankin
59:42

My guest for this episode is Dr. Lissa Rankin, a healer, author, mystic, and activist committed to healing the landscape of healthcare. In this interview, we reflect on deep questions including: 

  • When it comes to healing from illness and injury, how is it that some people do everything right and stay sick, while others fully recover?
  • How does faith healing work - or does it?
  • Can we make ourselves more miracle-prone to faciliate healing and recovery?
  • Why do some healers and doctors abuse their power, and how does a healer's personal qualities factor into the healing process?

 

In her new book, Sacred Medicine: A Doctor's Quest to Unravel the Mysteries of Healing, Dr. Rankin shares her seven-year journey to answer such questions, from pilgrimage spots to holy mountains, from faith healers to prayer circles, as well as her conversations with healing and trauma experts including Dr. Gabor Mate, Donna Eden, and Richard Schwartz. In her book, Dr. Rankin shares the wisdom and practical healing tools learned from energy healers, Indigenous spiritual leaders, and cutting-edge psychotherapies.

AWAKENING: Navigating choice points as a spiritual practice
25:55

There are so many choices you make every day, from the mundane and minor to life-defining choices. This episode of AWAKENING is all about using the choice points you face every day as a kind of spiritual practice - as an opportunity to notice what you're choosing for yourself as well as which parts of you are informing your decision-making. Bringing more consciousness to this can help you slow down and make the most aligned, supportive, and life-affirming choices.

For some specific examples, we'll look at how you're navigating choices around food, rest, and sticking to a daily spiritual practice or routine (and what happens when resistance comes up or if you have conflicting parts of you pulling you in two directions).

In this episode, I mention my goal to keep the podcast ad-free indefinitely. If you've gotten some value out of the podcast and can help me make that happen, you can donate ANY amount that works for you here:

Inner Work 127: A Deep Dive into Shadow Work
34:36

What is shadow work? And how can you do it responsibly and effectively?

This episode of Inner Work explores the shadow as a "dark aspect of the personality", in the words of Carl Jung. Your shadows are aspects of yourself that, for whatever reason, you've deemed as unacceptable or shameful. And so you repress these aspects into the subconscious. However, your unexamined and un-integrated shadows will continue to make themselves known and influence your behavior in one way or another.

So, this episode addresses:

  • what is shadow work?
  • secondary and primary shadow archetypes (which do you recognize in yourself?)
  • key principles and suggestions to make your shadow work as effective and transformative as possible
  • how to avoid spiritual bypassing when doing shadow work
  • a 4-step method for doing shadow work as an ongoing practice in your life

 

Here's the blog post where I outline my 4-step shadow work method, in case you want to refer to that:

Thank you for tuning in! Please take kind and compassionate care of yourself -- and your shadows.

AWAKENING: Coming to terms with childhood losses
31:14

This episode of AWAKENING focuses on all kinds of childhood losses, from the seemingly minor to the life-altering. I talk about some of the intangible childhood losses that might still be impacting you today - for instance, the loss of childhood innocence or playfulness if you were forced to grow up too fast.

This episode also defines childhood losses as anything that, ideally, you should've been given as a child but - for whatever reasons - was not provided. Some essential things that were not provided might include a feeling of safety and belonging, comfort, encouragement, the soothing presence of an emotionally stable caregiver, and unconditional support.

I share how I've been coping with some of my own childhood losses (related to moving away from my home country at age 11) and suggest a few practices for you to work through yours.

For example, I mention working with the throat chakra through a guided meditation. You can find that here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwzSOF9GEHo&t=31s

Important note: please seek the professional support of a trauma-informed therapist, healer, or Somatic Experiencing practitioner if you're trying to process childhood trauma and it feels overwhelming. You don't have to do it alone. This is a good resource to find a qualified practitioner:

Inner Work 126: Surrendering and Dropping Ego Attachments with Johnny Guidry
50:35

My guest for this episode, Johnny Guidry, is a speaker, podcaster, and spiritual and career coach focused on helping others awaken to their most authentic and intuitive life. His career progression includes 16 years of learning design and management, human resources, project management, and operations. 

Johnny’s current path of spiritual growth has been a decade-long process facilitated by his experiences with alcoholism, compulsions around eating, shopping, and sexual behavior, morbid obesity, social anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

Today, Johnny has been sober for over 13 years, has lost 200 lbs, recovered emotional and physical health, is debt free, and most importantly has learned to be still, connect with his highest self, and live by intuition. 

In this episode, we talk about:

  • the path of sobriety
  • surrender & self-acceptance as healing practices
  • letting go of self-defense
  • dropping ego attachments
  • reshaping your identity after a spiritual awakening

AWAKENING: What are you bracing against?
26:46

As humans, we sometimes develop a survival or coping mechanism of bracing against - bracing against other people, against pain and suffering, against potential criticism or rejection, against vulnerability, and even against life itself.

As a spiritual and psychological state, bracing serves at least two functions: to push away unpleasant things, and to hold on tightly to the people, things, and relationships we already have in our lives (typically out of fear that you might lose those things in the future).

In this act of bracing, which involves a self-defensive stance, there's a fundamental lack of trust. A lack of trust in yourself, in life, and in your ability to handle life - no matter what arises.

Bracing for a long time can have harmful effects on your entire system, including your body, physical health, mental health, and ability to connect spiritually.

In this episode of AWAKENING, I delve into this coping mechanism of bracing, discuss its long-term consequences and effects, and offer some suggestions to begin softening it.

Inner Work 125: Common Questions and Misconceptions about the Akashic Records
26:38

This episode of Inner Work addresses some common questions and misconceptions about the Akashic Records.

Specifically, I answer these questions:

  • Is there only ONE way, method, or prayer to access the Akashic Records?
  • Aren't the Akashic Records a tool of the third dimension?
  • Where are the Akashic Records located?
  • Why are the Akashic Records accessible to us? What's the ultimate purpose for humanity?
  • Can healing happen spontaneously inside the Records?

 

I mention a few resources in this episode. You can access those here:

AWAKENING: Surrender as a doorway into self-liberation
29:24

Ideally, on the spiritual path we use our triggers and challenges as opportunities to become more conscious and awake. This brand new series, AWAKENING, is our next adventure - and evolution - following my TRIGGERED! series. 

Awakening is a continuous, ever-unfolding process and not something we can force, rush, or put on any specific timeline. With this series, we'll continue exploring some of our triggers and challenges while also delving into key spiritual concepts and practices that can help us move through those challenges.

This inaugural episode focuses on SURRENDER:

  • what does surrender really mean, and how can we practice it?
  • how surrender can liberate you from anxiety, ego attachments, codependence, and the tendency to control your life and the lives of others
  • 3 specific examples of surrender from my own life (in career, friendships, and health)
  • surrender as a practice of making friends with WHAT IS and becoming free of resistance

TRIGGERED! When your ego causes you suffering
27:58
Join me for this episode of TRIGGERED! as we explore all things ego. Your ego carries your sense of self, your self-image, the stories you tell and believe about yourself (especially as compared to other people), and your attachments to things like your car, house, relationships, social status, money, etc.

The ego's primary agenda is to make sure you're keeping up appearances, looking good to others, being accepted, and maintaining the status quo. Therefore, the ego is constantly on the lookout for anything that might threaten your sense of identity.

In this episode, we'll explore:

  • what is the ego?
  • the mechanisms the ego uses to try to maintain the status quo and avoid risk & discomfort
  • some of the common lies and illusions your ego might tell you
  • how the ego causes suffering
  • how to help yourself transcend your ego - or at least shift your relationship to it

TRIGGERED! When you have an emotional flashback
24:19

Welcome back to TRIGGERED! New year, new triggers for us to deal with. 

In this episode, I talk about the experience of having an emotional flashback. This is when something (or someone) triggers you to regress to a feeling or emotional state from the past, which could be from an earlier age in your current lifetime or even a past life. Topics include:

  • what is an emotional flashback?
  • common triggers that set off an emotional flashback
  • signs & symptoms that you're experiencing an emotional flashback
  • a 3-step process to support yourself and move through an emotional flashback

In this episode, I mention a book by Pete Walker, Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving. I highly recommend this book if you want to explore childhood trauma, complex PTSD, and emotional flashbacks in more depth.

Welcome to the third episode in my four-part series on the Tarot suit of Cups. This installment covers the 7, 8, 9, and 10 of Cups, focusing on:

- the 8 of Cups as a card of outgrowing established relationships, career, hobbies, habits, and lifestyle

- the 9 of Cups and the importance of releasing guilt and feelings of selfishness for doing well and manifesting abundance for yourself

Inner Work 121: The Tarot Cups, Pt. 2. Releasing Apathy and Grief + Healing Your Relationship to the Past
23:52

This is part two in a four-part series on the Tarot suit of Cups. (I highly recommend listening to episode 1 first and then returning to this one, if you haven't already! The episodes build on each other in some ways.)

In this installment, join me for an exploration of:

  • the 4 of Cups as a card of apathy, restlessness, and boredom - and how to shift out of this state to receive help and inspiration from the Universe
  • the consequences of forgetting to "look up" to the heavens and getting caught up in day-to-day life
  • the 5 of Cups as a card of deep, sometimes paralyzing grief and disconnection from Spirit
  • the 6 of Cups as a card of nostalgia - and how that sense of longing for (or idealizing) the past can sometimes prevent us from being present now
  • the healing power of laying the past to rest

TRIGGERED! When you're stuck in perfectionism or hypervigilance
18:59

Perfectionism and hypervigilance are often maladaptive ways in which we've learned to stay safe in the world (or to at least try to stay safe). They're also patterns that we sometimes acquire in response to trauma, and to prevent a similar trauma or hurtful experience from happening again.

The problem with these patterns is that they keep you so limited, living a tightly controlled life as you try to do everything perfectly - to BE perfect - and avoid making any mistakes.

Some of the core symptoms of being stuck in perfectionism and hypervigilance include:

  • difficulty settling down after activity and fully relaxing (especially if the activity is stressful or highly stimulating)
  • feeling creatively drained or blocked ("if it's not going to be perfect, I'm not even gonna try" syndrome)
  • constantly bracing yourself for the other shoe to drop
  • being stuck in hyper-activity, hyper-productivity, and ruminating thoughts
  • harsh inner critic and constant self-evaluation (and paralyzing fear of others' criticism!)
  • feeling constantly rushed and like there's not enough time in the day

In this episode, I introduce my brand new course 21 Days to Heal Perfectionism & Hypervigilance and lay out the 3 most important steps in releasing these patterns so you can reclaim your creativity, peace, freedom, and sense of well-being in the world.

Inner Work 120: The Tarot Cups, Pt. 1. Your Relationships with the Divine, Yourself, and Other People
24:10

Due to overwhelming demand following my series on the Tarot Swords, I'm happy to present this four-part series on another Tarot suit: the Cups.

In this first installment of four episodes, I lay the groundwork for taking you through a deeper, psychospiritual understanding of the suit of Cups. Join me for a discussion of:

- the suit of Cups as representing a primarily feminine energy (in contrast, particularly, to the very phallic suit of Swords)

- how the suit of Cups challenges us to embody the energies of surrendering, flexibility, flow, and receptivity

- the Ace of Cups as a card of total Divine connection and spiritual solace

- the 2 of Cups as a card for healing dysfunctional relationship patterns, especially unequal power dynamics in romantic relationships

- the 3 of Cups as a card that challenges us to overcome interpersonal trauma so we can celebrate ourselves and each other, particularly in the context of female friendship

I'll be referring to the Rider Waite Smith deck if you want to follow along with the imagery and specific details on the cards.

TRIGGERED! When the holidays feel stressful or draining
17:36

Aaah, the holidays... a magical time of gathering with loved ones and celebrating our blessings. That is, ideally! 

For many people, the holidays can be a lot more stressful, draining, or anxiety-inducing than the picture-perfect image of a loving family gathered around a fancy table. The holidays - whichever ones you choose to celebrate - can bring up mixed emotions or fill you with anticipatory dread, worry, and stress.

In this special holiday edition of TRIGGERED!, I talk about:

- the importance of breaking with old traditions that feel draining, confining, or dysfunctional

- creating your own traditions that feel more aligned and peaceful

- reinforcing boundaries with family members during the holidays

- liberating yourself from burdensome family expectations and using the holidays as an opportunity to practice saying NO

- ways to protect yourself energetically & physically if you choose to gather with family

You might find this resource helpful if you do get triggered at some point during the holidays. I created a guide on 10 Ways to Get Untriggered Quickly, which you can download here:

https://mailchi.mp/de778241c913/triggered-ep-21

I can't thank you enough for tuning in to this podcast... your presence makes it all worthwhile. I hope this episode supports you in having a peaceful, stress-free holiday season.

  • Tyrone's early fascination with dreams and how he discovered their healing potential 
  • the importance of developing your own system or approach of dream interpretation (without automatically turning to books or other sources of dream interpretation)

  • the possibility of traveling to the astral plane through your dreams

TRIGGERED! When you use whatever you can to escape reality
21:54

Have you found yourself reaching for whatever it is you can - a substance, experience, behavior, or whatever else - to escape the present moment?

Yup, I've done that too. Many times!

This episode of TRIGGERED! is, in many ways, a continuation of my episode on addictions and compulsive behavior. But this time we're focusing on the impulse to "check out", to not be here, to not be in your body, to escape reality. Join me for a discussion of:

- where the impulse to check out or escape comes from (and how it relates to being highly sensitive)

- why and how this impulse drives us to engage in self-destructive or harmful behaviors

- why it's important to NOT demonize or punish yourself for wanting to escape

- recognizing that your addictions and attachments to the things, substances, and behaviors you use to check out are not happening in a vacuum; there are entire industries invested in keeping you addicted (and how touching into your sacred anger about this can help in breaking those attachments)

To connect with me directly, please head over to www.josephinehardman.com or write to me@josephinehardman.com

Thank you for tuning in! May your path be smoothed by the grace of compassion, understanding, and kindness towards yourself.

22:53

Sometimes you pull a Tarot card and it just doesn't seem to make sense for the question you're asking. What do you do in those moments of confusion or lack of clarity?

This episode of TRIGGERED! will give you specific suggestions for how to interpret any card that shows up - regardless of your question or level of experience with the Tarot.

  • how to move beyond reliance on the guidebook or online definitions of the cards
  • how to lean into your intuitive senses to decipher a card's meaning
  • important aspects to notice on a Tarot card that will help you develop your own intuitive understanding of it

Inner Work 117: The Symptoms of Spiritual Ascension
23:55

Spiritual ascension is often talked about as a concept and experience in the spiritual community. There are many different definitions of what "ascension" means, and we each have unique experiences as we evolve and ascend spiritually.

In this episode of Inner Work, I explore:

  • how we can define spiritual ascension
  • what happens at a physical and cellular level when you "ascend" spiritually
  • the benefits and positive transformations that arise out of spiritual ascension
  • some of the potential physical symptoms of ascension, and how you can best deal with them
  • the importance of taking ownership of your healing

Above all, if you're experiencing spiritual growth and ascension symptoms, please know you're not alone, you're not crazy, and it's ok to take care of yourself right now.

TRIGGERED! When someone tells you how to live your life
22:57

Ever found yourself in a situation where someone tried to tell you how to live your life? Maybe they tried to tell you what you should eat, or what you shouldn't eat, or how you should speak or behave, or how you should raise your kids, or how you should dress. This can bring up all kinds of emotions and feel really triggering.

In this episode, I talk about:

- how to deal with well-intentioned (or not so well-intentioned) people trying to tell you how to live

- the importance of working through our own tendencies to tell others how to live (because we're not perfect either!)

- how to deal with feelings of being judged or criticized

- my personal story with veganism and how this created a rift in my family

- the importance of releasing energetic hooks and cords connecting you to people who've tried to control or manipulate you

- honoring our vulnerability and desire to avoid conflict as highly sensitive people

- the consequences of an undisciplined mind in the 9 of Swords

- how the suit of Swords warns us when we're hitting up against our limits

TRIGGERED! When you can't stop eating sugar (or engaging in some other addictive behavior)
20:21

"Addictions always originate in pain, whether felt openly or hidden in the unconscious." - Dr. Gabor Mate

This episode of TRIGGERED! takes on the topic of addictive behaviors through my own personal experience with food and sugar addiction. Join me for a discussion of:

- what fuels us to engage in addictive behaviors even when we know they're harming us

- the importance of not making an addiction or addictive substance the enemy

- how the addictive cycle keeps us stuck in a loop of obsessive thinking and robs us of peace, vitality, and energy

- softening addictive tendencies by understanding WHY and HOW you've used them as a coping mechanism or as a response to trauma

- for sugar addiction in particular, the importance of cultivating more "sweetness" and self-compassion in your daily life

I mention a number of resources throughout the episode. Please explore these based on your own needs and interests:

Part 2 of this mini series covers the 4, 5, 6, and 7 of Swords. Through the lens of these cards, I talk about:

  • transforming trauma to find wisdom and growth
  • the role of sacred pauses, rest, and slowing down in healing yourself and shifting your mindset
  • reclaiming your natural rhythm
  • the negative consequences of being led by an out-of-control ego
  • choosing peace over chaos or drama

TRIGGERED! When you have difficulty trusting your intuition
20:20

Your intuition is your inner guidance system and inner GPS. As such, it gives you information about the people, places, and situations that are aligned with you - as well as the people, places, and situations that are not. Through this guidance, you can decide what to move towards to and what to move away from.

In this episode of TRIGGERED!, I address the important topic of being able to trust your intuition and intuitive nudges. Specific themes include:

  • How your trust in your own intuition can become corroded over time for a variety of reasons (for example: if it was unsafe to trust in your feelings and perceptions growing up, if you've been privileging your head and logical thinking over your heart and intuition, or if you feel unworthy of receiving clear information from your Guides)
  • The intuitive channels through which you receive information and guidance
  • Your body as a vehicle of divine communication
  • 6 specific blocks that make it hard to trust your intuition and the messages that come through (and how to work with each one)

In the episode, I mention this article on the 5 clairs: https://josephinehardman.com/how-to-develop-your-intuition-with-the-5-clairs/

20:53

This is the inaugural episode in a four-part series exploring the Tarot Swords in depth. Join me as we journey through the Swords, from the Ace to the King, and derive important lessons from this suit.

This first episode covers:

  • an overview of the Swords as a suit
  • how the journey through the Swords is a cautionary tale about the undisciplined ego mind
  • how this suit warns us about the dangers of privileging head over heart
  • the suit's double-edged nature, which is reflective of the mind as a double-edged "tool" 
  • how we sometimes develop a coping mechanism of retreating into the head to avoid our feelings or suppress heart trauma

I also dive into the Ace of Swords, 2 of Swords, and 3 of Swords to provide detailed interpretations of each card.

TRIGGERED! When you're in a one-sided friendship
16:43

Being in a one-sided friendship can be triggering (and exhausting!). This episode responds to a listener email by exploring what happens when you give your full support and attention to a friend, but they don't give you a reciprocal exchange of energy and presence. Our listener was triggered, specifically, when a friend would multitask, check their phone, or otherwise get distracted during their interactions (particularly when it was time for our listener to share and be heard).

In the episode, I also talk about:

  • how being highly sensitive can make us feel more upset or rejected when friends don't seem to be fully present with us
  • the importance of speaking up for your needs in friendships & relationships (and how to do so)
  • the valuable lesson of releasing one-sided friendships
  • my own recent experience of having to let a friendship go

Inner Work 110: Jung, Depth Psychology, and Sacred Feminism through the Tarot with Mariana Louis
52:59

Mariana Louis is a tarot reader, scholar, and writer from New York City. She is the creator of Persephone's Sister, a platform for spiritual education and magical guidance that blends depth psychology, sacred feminism, and witchcraft. She works both with one-on-one clients as an intuitive reader and leads community seminars and circles for soulful deepening and learning. Mariana loves the poetry of Rilke, the music of Hildegard von Bingen, and the sweetness of her husband and kitty familiars.

In this interview, we talk about:

- how Jung's work can help you explore undiscovered aspects of yourself

- the tarot as a tool to reconnect with the God/Goddess within

- integrating the divine & the mundane in your daily life

- how to recognize when you're disconnected from the energy of the sacred feminine (and steps to reawaken that connection)

- clearing up misconceptions about shadow work and doing it responsibly and ethically

TRIGGERED! When someone tries to prove you wrong
15:52

Feeling criticized or called out on something can feel so uncomfortable. So triggering! This episode investigates what happens to us when someone tries to prove us "wrong" - whether they're responding to something we've created, something we've said or done, or a personal opinion.

I offer two specific, grounding questions to stay as centered as you can and evaluate the criticism you receive as peacefully and openly as possible. I also touch on cases or situations where it might be ok to evalute that criticism critically and detach from it if it's coming from a hostile or close-minded place.

An important point of this episode is that being called out on something - or when someone tries to prove you wrong - can be an excellent opportunity for growth, learning, and examining your own beliefs.

Joanna Lindenbaum is the founder of the Applied Depth Practitioner Institute & the Sacred Depths Transformational Practitioner Certification. She is an expert in transformation who helps coaches and healers take their coaching skills to the next level.

TRIGGERED! When your desired manifestation isn't showing up
17:57

In response to a listener question, this episode explores what happens when you're trying to manifest something and it just isn't showing up in your life (or isn't manifesting quickly enough). This can give rise to feelings of worry, fear, urgency, frustration, and hopelessness. I talk about what to do with those feelings and also cover these topics:

- what "surrendering" really means

- a common trap or misconception in the law of attraction

- how you can manifest what you want even with some fear or doubt

- how to adopt an attitude of empowered surrendering

- a specific practice to shift from an attitude of grasping to an attitude of surrender & receptivity

In this episode, I also invited you to fill out a survey to provide feedback on the podcast. You can do so here:

Inner Work 108: Emotional Labor (and the Emotional Work of Being a Healer)
30:54

What is emotional labor? How do you know when you're doing it? And what are the costs and consequences associated with that labor?

Join me for an in-depth exploration of emotional labor, what it is, and how to recognize when you're doing it (and why you're doing it). In this episode, I offer specific examples of emotional labor across three spaces: at home, in relationships, and in your work as a healer or service-based provider.

As healers, we must engage in particular kinds of emotional labor when we work with clients individually or in group settings. As we run through the different types of emotional labor you might be doing in your life and work, I invite you to notice which of these you tend to engage in the most... and which are most draining for you. What kind of emotional labor are you doing simply out of a sense of obligation, family expectations, or social conditioning? Are you doing emotional labor to please others or avoid conflict? If so, how can you shift that pattern?

In this episode, I announced my Akashic Records Level 1 Training Course. You can explore that here:

TRIGGERED! When you can't get out of your head
20:37

This episode is going out to my fellow overthinkers! Do you tend to get trapped inside your head, caught in repetitive or intrusive thinking patterns? Do you overanalyze everything to death? Do you find it challenging to drop down into your body and be in the space of your heart? 

Join me as we explore the possible reasons why you might have developed this tendency to "retreat" into the head as a safety or coping mechanism. In this episode, I define the difference between being in your head (the home of your rational and ego mind) versus being in your heart (the home of your divine mind and spirit). I also talk about what you can do to begin shifting from the head into the heart.

To explore my Akashic Records Level 1 Course, go here: www.josephinehardman.com/work-with-me/akashic-records-training-level-1/

Inner Work 107: Mediumship, Channeling, and Art as a Form of Spirituality with Mary Grisey
58:57

Mary Grisey is a multidimensional channeler, psychic & spiritual medium, teacher, and visual artist based out of Los Angeles, California. She has been connected to the unseen world ever since she can remember and works closely with her Spirit Guides, Ruth and the Council of 12. Her fine art background provides a unique approach to her readings and teachings as they tend to foster creativity, inventiveness, and imagination.  

In this episode, we dive deep into Mary's method of integrating art and spirituality - or, rather, of seeing them as two sides of a similar coin. We also talk about the differences between mediumship and channeling and how you can begin developing your own intuitive abilities. Mary shares about her world-class mentorship and course, The Architecture of Remembering.

TRIGGERED! When you're having a hard time and someone tells you to just "be positive"
16:04

Has anyone ever told you to just "be positive" or "think positive" while you were in the midst of a crisis, having a challenge, or experiencing intense emotions? Did this make you want to rip that person's head off? Yup, I've been there too!

In this episode of TRIGGERED!, I talk about the experience of being told to just "be positive" and how this can make you feel triggered, alone, angry, or dismissed. This may also trigger the feeling that your experience or emotions are being minimized.

I also cover, briefly, the sometimes endemic tendency in the spiritual community towards "toxic positivity" - the idea that everything is, or should, be ok if you just "stay positive" and keep your vibes high.

TRIGGERED! When you abandon or betray yourself
16:13

Self-abandonment is really common in our culture. It can take many different forms, but it’s often related to denying or suppressing your own needs to act in ways that are deemed acceptable by others.

Our western culture frequently encourages us to move towards this place of self-denial, suppression, and twisting ourselves to fit external expectations and demands. Part of this has to do with being affable, with not creating conflict, with being perceived as a helpful and productive and easygoing person.

In this episode of Triggered, we explore what it means to abandon or betray yourself. I run through some specific examples of self-abandonment and offer suggestions for reclaiming your self-worth and becoming your own ally and advocate.

To connect with me directly, please head over to www.josephinehardman.com

You can also share your response to this episode - or some of your own triggers - by writing to me@josephinehardman.com

TRIGGERED! When you feel shame about being too sensitive
18:16

This episode of TRIGGERED! is going out to my fellow highly sensitive people and empaths. Do you sometimes (still) get triggered when you feel you're "too sensitive", or if someone else makes you feel that you are, or if you even have the slightest inkling that someone might be perceiving you that way? Yup, me too! 

Especially if you grew up hearing that you're too sensitive, or you need to grow a thicker skin, or you take things too personally, you might have developed a sense of shame about your sensitivity. In this episode, we dive into the experience of feeling shame about our heightened sensitivity and what we can do with that shame when it gets triggered.

To connect with me directly or share your own triggers so we can work through them together, please head over to www.josephinehardman.com or send an email to me@josephinehardman.com

Inner Work 103: Healing Past Life Trauma
25:26

It's very likely that you've lived lifetimes as a human before your current life. Some of the painful, traumatizing, or challenging experiences from your past lives might still remain unresolved. We can think of past life trauma in a number of different ways – for example, we have all experienced both individual and collective trauma in past lives.

Trauma from your past lives, if it remains unresolved, tends to become embedded somewhere in your energy field. You also hold memories of that trauma at a cellular level. This is why you can sometimes experience not only emotional but also physical symptoms related to past life trauma.

In this episode, I delve into the topic of past life trauma and offer a few specific indicators or signs that your current challenges - whether emotional, physical, spiritual, or relational - might be related to past life issues. I also discuss how the Akashic Records are one of the most ideal tools for healing this kind of trauma.

TRIGGERED! When the same old issue shows up in your life again
19:38

This episode of TRIGGERED! is about those moments when the "same old" issue shows up in your life... yet again. This could be an issue or pattern (or even physical symptom) you've faced many times before. Sometimes, it feels like it goes into "remission" or like you've finally moved beyond it, but then it pops up again when you least expect it. Gah! Having a human experience can be so tough.

I offer some real talk on how to face these old demons again when they pop up. The major focus of the episode is on how to move through the intense feelings that can come up in these moments: shame, anger, frustration, hopelessness, discouragement, sometimes even despair. 

I also lay out 4 specific suggestions for helping yourself face the same old issue, pattern, or symptom more compassionately and productively when it does show up.

Inner Work 102: An Inside Look into an Akashic Records Healing Session
01:03:12

For this special episode of Inner Work, I had the privilege of working with a respected friend, Thomas the Hermit, as we journeyed into his Akashic Records and then recorded a debrief of the experience. You will hear Thomas speak about the session candidly - what happened, what we saw and received from the Records, and how the information helped him.

Our conversation provides an inside look into an Akashic Records Healing Session. If you've ever wondered how this modality can help you accelerate your healing, overcome dysfunctional patterns, and reconnect to the highest-level version of yourself (i.e., your Higher Self, Soul, Divine Self), this episode will shed some light on all of that. It also provides a case study of how the Akashic Records can be accessed - and the kinds of information that can come through - with the help of a trained reader.

TRIGGERED! When people cross or disrespect your boundaries
17:02

Boundaries! A perpetually hot issue in the spiritual and healing worlds. Boundaries are something we must all continually work on while we're incarnated in human bodies. It's so important to have clear and healthy boundaries to delineate where you end and where someone else begins. This can help you stay true to your core needs and desires instead of losing your sense of self in relationships or in other people.

In this episode, I respond to a listener email about one of her triggers - when people try to tell her what to do and when people cross her boundaries.

Join me for this discussion as we delve into the "freeze" response that can habitually get triggered when others disrespect or test your boundaries, especially if you grew up with poor boundaries or parents/caregivers who were unable to model healthy boundary-setting.

I also talk about "sacred anger" and how reawakening this energy within you can lead to powerful healing and help you stand your ground - no matter where you are, who you're with, or what's being asked of you.

Inner Work 101: Ancestral Healing with Lauren McGill (Woman of Rivers)
01:02:12

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the deeply soulful, compassionate, and knowledgeable Lauren McGill (Woman of Rivers). Lauren is a spiritualist, diviner, and root worker living in New Orleans. In her work as Woman of Rivers, she utilizes the Tarot for insight, growth, and healing as she helps her clients release old patterns and powerfully connect with their ancestors.

To extend the scope of her work, Lauren is currently studying Art Therapy, a practice she intends to integrate with ancestral healing modalities of breathwork and herbal medicine making. 

In this interview, we talk about ancestral healing: what it is, why it's important, and where you can start. We also chat about Lauren's healing journey and how water (and fluidity!) has been an essential element in both her business and private life. 

To connect with Lauren, you can tune in to weekly collective Tarot readings via https://instagram.com/womanofrivers or visit her website for sessions, her spells deck, and conjure work at www.womanofrivers.com

TRIGGERED! When you feel excluded, rejected, or like an outcast
17:31

This episode of TRIGGERED! explores the issue of feeling excluded, rejected, or like an "alien" or outcast. (Have you been there? Me too!) I respond to a listener's message about this and dive into the root of these painful feelings that can get activated whenever you feel left out or overlooked.

Join me as we explore why we get triggered when we feel unseen or excluded and what we can do to soothe or relate differently to this trigger. We'll also go back in time to locate your "primary rejection" -- that first conscious memory of being rejected, excluded, unseen, or mocked simply for being who you are. Healing that core wound of rejection and compassionately holding the part of you that's still suffering because of it is the key to releasing this trigger.

I'd love to hear your feedback on this episode! Please email me any time at me@josephinehardman.com . I would also love to hear about your own triggers so we can work through them together.

Inner Work 100: Gratitude
23:33

To celebrate Inner Work's 100th episode, join me for an interactive gratitude experience. This episode is ALL about gratitude and giving thanks!

We'll do a guided meditation together to tune into your heart and cultivate loving-kindness within your whole body and outwardly towards your home, community, and the world.

I'll also give you a set of 7 journaling prompts to go deeper into your gratitude practice (or start one!), as well as 3 gratitude challenges for which you can take action starting today.

The goal of this episode is to move all aspects of yourself - your mind, body, and spirit - towards the expansive experience of feeling gratitude. As Rumi says, we must wear gratitude "like a warm cloak", for it will fill our lives with warmth, resilience, and peace.

THANK YOU so much to every single listener who has tuned in on a monthly basis, left a rating or review, subscribed to the podcast, and/or recommended the podcast to a good friend. Your presence means the world to me.

TRIGGERED! When you feel unsafe or uncomfortable in your body
15:53

Being in a human, physical body can be very triggering at times. It can feel dense, unsafe, or uncomfortable to be in a body. This sometimes leads us to try to escape the body through coping mechanisms like overeating, undereating, drinking too much, checking out from reality, or spiritual bypassing.

It can also feel unsafe to be in your body if you've experienced trauma of any kind in this lifetime. In this episode, I address a few different forms of trauma you might have experienced that could still be affecting your ability to feel grounded and embodied. I also offer two practices to begin healing your relationship to your body.

*DISCLAIMER: nothing in this episode should be considered a substitute for medical, psychological, or psychiatric advice or treatment.*

Inner Work 099: Healing Your Relationship to Time
28:12

Having a dysfunctional relationship to time can make it difficult to stay present and grounded in each moment. In this episode, I explore the modern syndrome called "hurry sickness", which tends to manifest in the following ways:

- a feeling of always trying to beat the clock (and always keeping an eye on the clock)
- a feeling of never having enough hours in the day
- the compulsion to do more and more in less and less time
- inability to relax at the end of the day or even when you're away from work
- frustration, irritability, anxiety, and stress regarding time and deadlines
- physical symptoms such as muscle aches, tension headaches, insomnia, and restlessness in the body

After examining the different ways in which "hurry sickness" might be showing up in your life, we'll dive into practical and spiritual approaches to heal your relationship to time. Applying the suggestions in this episode will help you feel more expansive, less hurried, and anchored in the present moment.

TRIGGERED! When you compare yourself to others (and feel inadequate or not good enough)
17:00

A very common trigger that most of us experience is comparing ourselves to others and then feeling worse about ourselves. This is also called "compare & despair", and it can bring up intense feelings of inadequacy, not being good enough, and impostor syndrome. 

In this episode, I dive into this particular trigger and the different ways in which it might be showing up in your life. I share what has helped me become un-triggered and shift my experience with "compare & despair" into a doorway for expansion and for identifying my true desires.

I also delve into the shadow side of comparing ourselves to others and offer suggestions for working with that shadow.

I hope this will be helpful for you, wherever you are on the healing path! To share feedback or your own triggers, you can always email me at me@josephinehardman.com

Inner Work 098: Healing Your Money Story (with Sara Artemisia)
01:02:48

She's been coaching individuals to move through obstacles for over 12 years. Sara has experienced a profoundly transformational shift in her relationship with money over the past decade.

TRIGGERED! When you feel unheard or misunderstood
14:14

Today, we begin with a powerful quote from Victor Frankl: "Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."

These words remind us that we don't have to respond reactively to life. That we can notice and work with our triggers to diminish our knee-jerk reactions, which can often cause suffering for ourselves and/or others.

In this episode, I answer a listener email about a specific triggering situation: when you feel unheard or misunderstood in the context of an intimate relationship (or friendship). I share what I have found useful in these situations. I also encourage you to examine past relationship dynamics - including your relationships with your parents - so you can take stock of the unhealed or core wounds you bring with you into your interactions with people now.

TRIGGERED! When your brain won't let you meditate
17:54

You finally find a quiet moment to meditate, you sit down, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths... and your brain is off to the races. The ego mind can often get in the way of your meditation practice by pulling you in many different directions.

In this mini-episode, I explore the most common interference patterns used by the brain and ego mind when you try to meditate. I also share a few journaling or reflection prompts so you can explore the idea of surrendering, letting go of control, and creating more space between you and your ego mind.

Additionally, I offer some alternative practices if sitting still in complete silence is too unbearable for you. Sometimes this can be a sign that you're tapping into "frozen" or unresolved trauma, so it's important to be mindful of what's happening in your body and take a more gradual approach to meditation.

If this episode is helpful for you, please consider leaving a rating or review on Apple Podcasts - or, better yet, telling a friend about the podcast!

Also, you can reach me at me@josephinehardman.com if you want to share your own triggers. I would love to address them in a future episode so we can work through them together.

Inner Work 096: Creation of the Faunabelle Tarot Deck with Juanita Benedicto
01:00:10

My guest for this episode, Juanita Benedicto, works full-time as a consulting astrologer and tarot reader in Central Mexico. Her path to astrology has been very colorful. She's worked in salmon restoration in the streams of Northern California and as a librarian at University of Oregon. She spent four years with nuns in Central Mexico educating girls, building a library, and introducing battered women back to their bodies. She's lived and worked off the grid at a Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Retreat Center. Today, in addition to her client work, Juanita practices planetary magic and studies horary, a particular branch of astrology.

In this interview, we talk about Juanita’s creation of the Faunabelle Tarot deck, set to launch on Kickstarter in December 2020. 

To connect with Juanita, you can visit www.juanitabenedicto.com

TRIGGERED! When you put yourself out there and someone criticizes you
12:59

Becoming less reactive is an important goal on your path of healing and spiritual awakening. To respond to situations from a place of wisdom, higher truth, and confidence – instead of responding out of fear, worry, anger, or any kind of knee-jerk reaction.

This goal of becoming less reactive – and therefore becoming more centered and grounded in the present moment – is what inspired this new experimental series of mini-episodes, which I’m calling TRIGGERED! (with an exclamation point because when you get triggered, it can be pretty intense). Through these episodes, I also want to bring some levity and lightness to the process of spiritual development, which can sometimes really challenge you.

In this first mini-episode, we’ll be working with what happens (and what to do) when you put yourself out there and someone criticizes you. This topic was inspired by one of my own triggers, so this episode includes a personal anecdote. I then shift to the bigger picture and some specific takeaways as you strive to put yourself out there as well.

I'd love for this series to be a dialogue between you and me, so please send me your triggers (as you become aware of them) via email: me@josephinehardman.com

Inner Work 095: Excavating Transformative Insights through the Tarot (w/ Thomas of Hermit's Mirror)
01:08:49

Thomas (of Hermit's Mirror) uses the Tarot as a mirror to redirect light back into the hidden corners of the mind, guiding querents through the wilderness of life and helping Tarot readers find their own way more easily. He's been reading Tarot for over 20 years. Thomas is also the host of an Instagram series of Tarot talks and the author of Tarot Tableau: The Fool's Journey.

In this conversation, we talk about how we can use the Tarot to excavate transformative and useful insights - even when we get cards we didn't expect or when our readings unfold in unexpected directions.

Inner Work 094: The Akashic Records as a Tool of Healing and Transformation (w/ Collective Guidance)
40:56

As a healing tool, the Akashic Records can help you navigate uncertainty in our modern times, make more informed and intentional choices, release dysfunctional patterns, and reconnect you to a sense of purpose and meaning in your life. In this episode, I take you deeper into the Akashic Records to deliver some collective messages from the Record Keepers. 

These messages include guidance about what to focus on, what to prioritize right now, and potential areas for deeper healing in your life. For example, the Record Keepers speak about letting go of the need for external validation, the importance of not interfering in others' healing processes, and the practice of unhooking yourself from painful thought forms.

Inner Work 093: The Practice of Shifting to a Higher Truth
30:07

As spiritual beings in human bodies, we can sometimes get caught up in the illusion of 3D reality. Bills must be paid, kids must be driven to school (or educated at home during a pandemic!), cars must be repaired, and dinner must be cooked. We also have to interact with others and navigate a chaotic world. In this process, we can get lost in material reality and forget to stay connected to a Higher Perspective.

In this episode, I talk about how you can disengage from the illusions of 3D reality and reach for the higher truth of any situation or experience. This requires you to reconnect to Divine Source over and over again. Finding the higher truth means becoming more aware of what your Soul would say about any situation or challenge you're facing. As you do this, you expand your perspective and shift to a more hopeful, joyful, supported, and empowered state.

Inner Work 092: The Healing Path as a Labyrinth
27:41

In the words of Joseph Campbell on the labyrinth as a mythological symbol:

"We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us — the labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world."

In this episode, I explore the labyrinth as a metaphor for the healing path, with its winding detours, distractions, obstacles, and victories along the way.

I talk about some of the key places and figures you'll encounter inside the labyrinth including the Dead End, the False Teacher, the Spiritual Advisor, and the Sanctuary.

Join me for this traversal through the labyrinth -- which we ultimately never walk alone.

Inner Work 091: Dealing with Setbacks on Your Healing Path
24:37

Expecting the healing path to move in a linear fashion can set you up for frustration and disappointment. A more accurate metaphor for the healing path is a spiral or labyrinth, with lots of detours, roadblocks, and shadows that come up to be healed along the way.

In this episode, I share specific tips for dealing with setbacks on your healing path -- starting with the importance of redefining the word "setback" itself. This discussion is also helpful if you're experiencing a healing crisis or feeling a sense of dejection, confusion, impatience, or frustration with where you are on your healing journey.

31:28

Gatekeeping is an insidious form of restricting access to knowledge, information, resources, or opportunities. In this episode, I delve into the "shadow side" of the spiritual community to explore the issue of gatekeeping and unethical practices. I talk about the dangers of idealizing spiritual teachers and healers and giving your power away, as well as the importance of finding and following your own inner authority.

Transforming the way women see themselves, Sandra captures natural portraits that are professional yet approachable.

Inner Work 088: Breaking Free of People Pleasing & Approval Addiction
30:45

Do you often find yourself trying to please everyone to keep the peace? Does conflict - or even the idea of conflict or disagreement - send you into a tailspin? Do you rely on others' praise and approval to feel ok about yourself?

If so, you might be stuck in a pattern of people pleasing and approval addiction. In this episode, I talk about where these patterns and behaviors often originate and how early childhood conditioning can set you up to people please as an adult. I also discuss the Fawn Response, the automatic response to trauma beyond fight, flight, or freeze. Finally, I share some suggestions for starting to move beyond these deeply engrained patterns, one step at a time.

It's so important to have clear boundaries in your business as a healer, lightworker, or spiritual entrepreneur. A lack of boundaries can leave you feeling exhausted and burnt out.

27:57

The Hierophant is sometimes one of the least liked cards in the Tarot decks -- or at least a card that many people have trouble connecting with. The Hierophant can represent patriarchy, authority, gatekeeping, organized religion, and conformism. But, in this episode, I share how we can reclaim The Hierophant for our modern times, derive powerful healing lessons from it, and use it to step into your inner authority and power.

On the path of the spiritual healer and entrepreneur, you'll often come up against different forms of resistance.

Or even if you're just putting yourself out there more visibly on social media!

In this episode, I walk you through 6 different types of resistance that come up on the path of the spiritual healer. I also offer a few specific antidotes or ways to get around that resistance so you can grow your spiritual business without sabotaging your efforts.

Inner Work 084: Making Yourself Magnetic to Your Ideal Clients
37:40

Are you a healer or spiritual entrepreneur trying to grow your business and get more clients? This episode is for you if you've connected to your Divine Mission and that Mission includes healing, being of service, transmuting energy, anchoring light, or serving as a catalyst for transformation.

In this episode, I propose a new way of doing marketing that does NOT revolve around hustling, endless to-do lists, tricking, high-pressure sales tactics, or creating a false sense of urgency. Instead, as healers, we must think about marketing as making ourselves MAGNETIC to our ideal clients using ethical, aligned, powerful marketing strategies in full integrity with our spiritual values. It's time to elevate our marketing models and no longer do "business as usual."

To connect with me or further explore a new way of doing marketing and running your business, you can head over to www.josephinehardman.com

Inner Work 082: The Path of the Spiritual Entrepreneur
35:10

I call the path of the spiritual entrepreneur an "incubator for accelerated healing." This is because ALL of your stuff comes up on this path: your fears, resistance, triggers, self-doubt, self-sabotage, old wounds. And more!

This episode takes a behind-the-scenes look at the path of the spiritual entrepreneur and examines some of the intense fears and triggers that come up along the way. I draw some parallels between this path and the Fool's Journey (in Tarot), given that running your own spiritual business requires tremendous amounts of faith, trust, and the ability to take risks.

I also share why I think it's so important to become your own boss and create your own economy in light of recent world events.

Inner Work 075: Listening to the Voice of Your Divine Genius (Instead of the Voice of Fear)
29:26

I'm sure you're familiar with the voice of fear within you (we all have it). This is the voice that tells you you're not good enough, things will never work out for you, you'll never make enough money, you're stupid, it's not worth trying anything new, etc, etc. (Such a tyrant!)

But do you also recognize within yourself the voice of Divine Genius? This voice is also referred to as the voice of Higher Self, the voice of your soul, your inner knowing, your inner Goddess.

In this episode, I talk about the INNER CONFLICT that's created when the voice of Divine Genius and the voice of fear within you are locked in a struggle. I also offer advice on how to turn up the volume on your voice of Divine Genius so you can move beyond old patterns, release your fear, and go for the things you actually want.

A new year brings with it new possibilities, as well as the invitation (or challenge) to let go of old stories about yourself and create a new reality where you fully embody your true essence and core self.

This new year, I wish you the courage to be yourself - even if that means disappointing someone along the way!

Are you a bit of a control freak? Do you often feel "on edge" or as though you have to scan the horizon for possible danger? Yup, me too! In this episode, I discuss how can we move beyond the egoic need to control our environment, our own behavior, and others' reactions to us. I also talk about hypervigilance and the possible causes of this painful habit of watching out for danger and feeling unsafe in the world. The episode ends with a blessing to cultivate safety and belonging in your body and in the world.
