[Solo] My Manifestation Practice, Law of Attraction & Following Intuition


Today’s episode is me, myself and I talking about my experience with manifestation, the law of attraction and intuition.

I’m obsessed with this topic and it’s something that deeply fascinates me. I’m excited to chat informally about my experience and share tools with you that have helped me.

I recommend you listen with a dose of healthy curiosity even if this topic isn’t something you know a lot about or really excites you. For me it took years to really sink in so I totally feel you if it’s a little weird at first.

On this episode I talk about:

  • My relationship with my intuition as a kid
  • How I followed my gut before I got the evidence
  • Why I never loved following rules
  • How I felt conflicted between logic and my gut
  • The personality frameworks I love
  • How I first discovered law of attraction
  • My biggest takeaway for practicing the law of attraction
  • Alignment before action
  • Why belief is the core of manifestation for me
  • The power of limiting beliefs and how to let them go
  • Releasing the need for an outcome
  • Practicing feeling good without external circumstances
  • Some physical manifestations I’ve experienced
  • How I turn on the ease
  • The thing I love the most about Law of Attraction

The Power of Mindset in Healing, Privilege in Wellness & Getting Into Alignment with Meg Dixon & Victoria Myers

On today’s podcast I’m talking with Meg Dixon & Victoria Myers, co-owners of Nourishing Minds Nutrition and the Nourishing Women Podcast. They’re experts in helping women heal gut and hormonal issues with a history of orthorexia. I love these women so much and had the pleasure of recording this episode with them in person when I was in Florida last month.

Today’s episode is a magical hybrid of a Q&A, interview and roundtable. We have discussions on 5 main topics that are all very top of mind for each of us. Think of this as a wellness without obsession podcast buffet! Because this is a slightly new format I’d love to hear what you think. Leave a review on iTunes or message me on instagram.

1.) The Power of Mindset in Healing

2.) The Grey Area of Consuming Content

Eating Disorder Recovery & Carving Your Own Empowered Path in Wellness - with Engrid Latina

This week I’m chatting with my amazing friend Engrid. I’m so grateful that the universe brought us together. From our first conversation, I felt like we connected on a soul sister kinda level and I’m so excited to see how both our paths unfold. This conversation feels intimate and deep and winding in such a wonderful way. We talk about her experience with an eating disorder and how she found her way out. We also discuss working in an industry that’s shrouded in diet culture and trying to break the mold by carving out your own path.


We Talk About:

  • Engrid’s background
  • Her story with anorexia
  • The root of how the eating disorder manifested
  • The non-linear path of recovering
  • How she became a personal trainer
  • How training and fitness was a slow stepping stone forward in recovery
  • Slow progress is still progress
  • The power and importance of therapy
  • The guilt that comes with realizing that you may have contributed to diet culture in the past - even if it’s not what you believe now
  • Why it’s important not to demonize communities
  • Why you can’t recover for someone else
  • Navigating being a personal trainer that doesn’t focus on weight loss in an industry steeped in diet culture
  • The fear we have of our bodies changing
  • Desires for appearance always boil down to seeking love
  • Why we don’t want to be a gurus
