018 From health crisis to a passion for primal and a purpose-driven business with Helen Marshall

Episode 18 with the fabulous Helen Marshall – in her words: a forty something year old mother of two living in on the South Coast of Western Australia. At age 38 she had a health crisis. She had digestive, hormonal and sleep problems. Everything was utterly overwhelming – even the laundry. Her mood was default ‘life is hard’ and she felt depressed and anxious. Naturally this crisis affected her life – she was a ‘shouty’ Mummy, a ragged libido-less house wife and she couldn’t cope with much more than the daily grind.

Listen on to find out:

  • What it means to Helen to be a woman in the current time and why she loves tech.
  • How the world is getting turned on it’s head as women are learning to put themselves first.
  • How to get past being a tired, depressed, low energy, shouty mum who doesn’t know what to cook for dinner.
  • Her journey to being a go-to source of knowledge on feeling good and how to feed your family on a primal journey.
  • How to follow your passion to become seen as an expert in your field.
  • The best ideas come from the Universe.
  • Realising your full potential and having the balls to do it
  • The Primal Alternative license
  • Building a sisterhood
  • Competition is so 90’s
  • If you are going to start your own business – any shit you have is going to come up!
  • Realise your potential. It’s a journey. Being present in everything I do.

017 Purpose, Alignment, Soul Astrology with Yelena Kostyguova

This chat with Yelena was so juicy I had to make it a 2 part podcast.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend going back and listening to Episode 16 in which Yelena shares

Her personal story from Russia to New Zealand
How her intuition took her right to where she needed to be and
How to deal with resistance

In this episode we launch into how Yelena serves women by

Taking them from burn-out to a space of divine reality.
Supporting them to retrain their consciousness to be able to sit in that space of divine reality for longer and longer periods of time
Facilitating a shift in illumination and shift in consciousness which creates a ladder for them to go higher in their perspective, enabling them to shift overwhelm and procrastination, and
Getting them into alignment and in their power place.

Yelena shares:

The simple and profound tool she uses to re-orient people and combat resistance and going round in circles
How to stop being attached to our small and painful ideas that are holding us back from living and working in our divine purpose
Her journey with Soul Astrology and learning how to use the shadow side of the traits of each sign to achieve the purpose of your soul
Her Flower Essence journey and how it helped her in way that was completely beyond her expectations and how she develops a person’s flower essence blend from their Ast

rology chart. (I have a blend from Yelena and I call it my magic potion – because it is magic!).

Yelena also explains

Where we are as a collective and how that affects our personal process in regards to our Soul Journey and the evolution of the Soul
How we can start the journey – letting go of the idea that we can just turn on a switch and start evolving

016 Your Power Place with Yelena Kostyugova

Yelena Kostyugova is a healer, shaman and spiritual coach. Yelena’s mission is to help visionary women to become a powerful force of positive change in the world. As a shaman she works with nature to bring restoration of harmony, order and balance to people, places and the world. Yelena runs a Facebook group We Are Changing The World and is a leader of Be The Change Tribe.

Yelena works with women who want to have a business that is aligned with their spiritual role, she helps women get connected to their place of power and develop their spiritual “muscles” to have the strength to face the challenges that come up as a spiritually empowered entrepreneur.

This is part one of our interview (because I couldn’t stop asking questions)!

In this conversation you’ll hear:

  • how a lightworker is someone who has a spiritual heart and cares about making the world a better place
  • how women are rising – the divine feminine is rising up and how we get to embody
  • how we are the pioneers – a wave of people stepping up and showing the way – how to be a full human living with the divine feminine
  • Yelena’s perspective on the rising of consciousness – the way me are moving towards that which is whole – masculine and feminine – left and right
  • how we might be feeling our way into being healers who for the first time ever have to ask for money as part of the transaction for our service
  • Yelena’s journey from a young person in a small town in Russia without a big plan for what to do at the end of school to moving to New Zealand living in alignment with her service to spirit
  • how she discovered that by doing what felt right in her heart, she could be guided by the invisible force of her destiny – trust and surrender
  • what to do when resistance comes up, things aren’t flowing and things get hard – should we change direction? Yelena gives her take on what to do when our challenges arise.
