032 Slaying your Stories | Mary Houston

Slaying your Stories

Mary’s mission is to see women free from the slavery of the stories that keep them from living their greatest life. Somewhere in between our understanding of the ego and our inner mean girl, there is a loop of stories that remain unconscious to most of us, that are dictating most of our daily lives! When we awaken to, witness these and meet them with love and sovereignty, then we step into the real truth of who we are and why we are here.

On a deeper level, she has a divine assignment to help women set themselves free from money shame. Many women are deeply ashamed of wanting more than enough, and of charging their worth in their business. Mary believes that money stories are framing the future for our children, and we need a new collective money story. She is on a mission to create one!
What we talked about:
  • Mary shares her story and how she received her divine assignment from God
  • How women can free themselves from their stories
  • Her unique approach to being an architect rather than an archaeologist – she helps women build their lives rather than dig around in the dirt
  • What sovereignty means to her and why it’s so important for women to claim their role as lighthouses rather than rescue boats
  • Why she no longer uses the word “purpose” and instead supports women in connecting with their current divine assignment
  • How money shame is holding us back and how it differs from money blocks
  • How to start having a conscious relationship with money
And so much more!!

028 Pregnancy loss and healing the way through it | Tracey Swainson

Pregnancy loss and healing the way through it

Tracey shares her very personal journey through pregnancy loss and how it has lead her to her current path of helping other women that is truly healing.
This is perhaps the most heart felt and touching interview that I have had the privilege of conducting. Tracey shares openly, honestly and with grace about her experience of the loss of 5 pregnancies and her journey to not becoming a mother.
I am deeply honoured that Tracey accepted my invitation to be interviewed and I bow to her courage, her integrity and commitment to supporting other women who have experienced the grief and trauma of pregnancy loss.
In so many ways, this is still a taboo subject and although so many of us experience this loss, we rarely talk about it.
This conversation is filled with inspiration, hope, comfort and practical and emotional tools and practices to explore and embrace.
I understand that for some this can be deeply triggering so please do use your discernment in deciding whether to listen in or not. And if you are currently on your own healing journey through pregnancy loss, please do reach out to Tracey.

“I was just crying all the time, I never allowed myself to heal, I never allowed myself to release it” – Tracey Swainson
