What’s Balance Got To Do With It?

Beyond The Chapter Interview Series – Heather Andrews and Sarah Konelsky

Aired Monday, July 20, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

How To WISELY Ask For Support When We Need Help The Most

Beyond The Chapter Interview Series Episode Two brings a difficult and what seems like a challenging task of asking for help and support to light.

These two authors share how asking for help was what they needed but in the beginning judgement, shame, expectations, and superhero syndrome kept them from being able to do so. Learning how to wisely reach out for help opened doors to overcoming a lot of pain and prevented living a future life full of resentments.

When we don’t or can’t ask for help we end up writing our own story differently than we want. We lose connection, not just with loved ones and community but also we become disconnected from our passions, our purpose, and our selves.

“By asking for help, often in non-conventional ways, I have learned to cope & restore my sense of balance” ~ Sarah Konelsky

“Healthy balance comes from ongoing awareness of what you tell yourself in the story of your life” ~ Heather Andrews

Whether you need help while caring for another; an elderly parent, children, someone with an illness or disease or even yourself needing support along life’s journey, today’s guests share the upside of asking for help and inspires listeners to imagine the lightness and ease of what support, guidance and help brings.

Heather Andrews is a publisher, international best-selling author, and speaker. After writing her first book, Heather saw firsthand how stories foster hope and change lives. It became apparent to her that the process of writing and sharing compelling stories is a transformational one, for both the audience and the author. The profound healing that Heather both felt and observed after publishing her first book was a monumental sign. Through her own re-discovery of self-esteem and her journey to the realization of a deeper personal identity based on values rather than just a prestigious job title, Heather knew she needed to help others like her get their powerful stories in front of those who needed them most.

Heather is a sought-after conference speaker who inspires audiences in her own direct and dynamic manner by sharing her challenges and survival strategies that continue to help her optimize adversity. A voice for self-discovery and fearless revitalization, Heather always makes a positive difference.

Sarah Konelsky, a self-proclaimed prairie girl with an island heart, lives in Calgary, Alberta. Married to her best friend and high-school sweetheart, together they have raised two beautiful souls.

Traveling and writing inspire Sarah to wander the globe, seeking experiences that engage her spirit in meaningful connection and personal growth. Her passion for Hawaiiana led to her becoming haumāna (a student) of the Aloha Music Camp, a project of the Mohala Hou Foundation “dedicated to promoting the (worldwide) teaching and sharing of Hawaiian music, dance, language and culture”. Her passion for pursuing personal excellence stems from creating the life she desires through the coaching and mentoring of Erin Skye Kelly and Associates, including her incredible Achievement Club team.

In October 2018, Sarah was granted the gift of caring for and bearing witness to the final phase of her mother’s journey as her soul gently transitioned from a single life force to one of universal energy.

Barefoot Balance – Lisa Berry

Aired Monday, June 29, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

Today you may find yourself in disbelief that something you do every day, you don’t really know how to do. Like standing, lime sitting properly, like walking.

Not only did I think I was doing these properly I thought they were just motions. I soon learned the hold the key to way more. During this episode I’ll be sharing from the newly released published chapter, Barefoot Balance – Getting a Grip on What Serves You, and discussing the BIG life lessons I personally learned from one single yoga session that would enhance my life forever! Join me and find out how a simple postural stance you can change your entire life.

Lessons Learned:

1. How we stand reflects how we are feeling in the moment.Our posture tells a story, a tale of attitude, beliefs, daily practices, and connections.
2. We can use our awareness of our physical presentation and use its power to remain in balance.
3. As we become clearer on what serves us, on what feels good and is effortless for our bodies, our goals become much easier to define as well as achieve.
4. To be outstanding we need to stand out by living with passion. Standing in a balanced and grounded manner supports our heart and promotes our breathing. It also keeps us stable and unshakable.

Mindset Tips:

1. Posture affects mindset and state. The world throws stuff at us all day long and self- correction is us choosing a better way.
2. Do regular posture checks, to empower, love, nurture, and motivate yourself.
3. Get back on track with your goals and/or get back into alignment with your beliefs, by adjusting your posture.
4. To restore energy and lift spirits: lift your head, so your chin is parallel to the ground, and look up.
5. To lessen stress and anxiety: drop your shoulders, breathe deeply and slowly.
6. To relieve overwhelm: tuck in your tush and tighten your abdominals to relieve low back pressure.

Pamela Larocque – How To Regain Your Balance During These Questionable Times

Aired Monday, June 8, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

The pay out of balance is that we can access our resources Within.

What does being out of balance look like?

Heartache,confusion,disappointment, feeling lost. We all experience being out of balance differently and the most important question to ask is – How do we regain balance?

It’s not about getting back to normal, it’s about recalibrating to the circumstances that exist and holding onto the knowing that joy is to be experienced.

Hope and trust can lead the way to knowing.

Join me today as I share an intimate conversation with Author Pamela Larocque who can attest to the value of belief when it comes to balance.

Having gone through an inward journey to meet her balanced, authentic and intuitively powered self after trauma and darkness of infant loss.

Pamela speaks from a transparent, wise and compassionate place of regaining balance. After the turmoil and confusion of being ‘thrown off’ balance on all energetic levels she shares how being intentional in all you do is the key to your actions and results.

Wherever you may find yourself out of balance, you are invited to feel the stability that lies within and have the strength to not only support yourself but others who are reaching out during this time as well.

What Makes You Follow A Vision With Action – Founder and Dean of The University Of Self Master Ayse Hogan

Aired Monday, June 1, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

Oh the power of a vision, of a dream that your heart has and what action it can inspire us to take.

But how clear does our vision and strong does our desire have to be to inspire physical action?

What can we do to clear the path for ourselves and make way for our inner knowing to lead us.

What prevents us from taking action on following a dream, or sharing and creating from a vision that our soul has shown us?

Today my guest Reverend, Healer and Self Mastery Coach Ayse Hogan, Founder and Dean of The University Of Self Mastery, shares her story of how she listened, respected and followed her own vision and inner guidance despite it showing a 180 degree flip picture from original conception.

Ayse will be inviting us to tap into our own frequency that promotes high speed alignment and reveals the possible gifts that we can calibrate to when tuning in to our soul’s desires.

She invited BIG LOVE into her life, not knowing how that would look, and is excited to inspire us all to commit to believing in our dreams.

When I received BOTH of these books to read a magical experience began!!! From the colourful ‘jack in the box’ of fun activities of Talk, Read, and Play With Me Mommy to the impressive and imagination stimulating reimagined Greek folktale Of Loukas and the Game Of Chance!!!

Every child, adult and family is taken on a journey where they can interact and enhance their skills. Language, speech, creativity and imagination summon an urge for every reader to share.

Join me as I interview two very special authors who share their own story of how these ‘lessons in a book’ came about and the expansive ways their books can help children at any age, including us big kids.

Loukas and the Game of Chance

“While Loukas is playing his flute at the seawall one day, he befriends a mysterious talking, dancing snake that rewards him with fortune and favor. Some years later, tempted by greed and pride, Loukas loses all his riches and his family. He must now set off on a treacherous journey through a frightening forest filled with suspense and strange creatures to find Destiny, her son Ilion, the Sun, and her daughter Luna, the Moon. These celestial guardians will surely allow him to reverse his misfortune, restore his honor, and win back all that he loves and treasures, won’t they?

A reimagined Greek folktale, Loukas and the Game of Chance is illuminated with dramatic and evocative pen and ink drawings that provide an ideal backdrop for the dark intrigue that fills this haunting story of human struggle, courage, and resilience.”

Manna’s first collaboration with Soula Mitakidou, Mr. Semolina-Semolinus: A Greek Folktale, illustrated by Giselle Potter, was an ALAALSC Notable Book, a Marion Vannett Ridgway Award winner, and a New York Public Library Best Book for Children.

Food That Does More Than Feed You! – with Candice Hutchings, The Edgy Veg

How much do you think about your food? What relationship do you have with the way you eat? Is it time to try a new way of eating?

Now this show really is food for thought, thoughts like…

What memories do you have of this food?

How does this particular food make you feel?

How Is it prepared?

What does it taste like?

I am always excited to talk about, think about and eat food, but our guest today has really offered people a new way of eating, a new way of thinking about food, and really a lifestyle around food.

Leanne Babcock – Be Unwilling To Be Stopped By Your Fear

Aired Monday, May 11, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

Courage, it’s not a peptalk it’s having a vision built from the heart. It’s no thinking at all, it’s truly a time you want to be thoughtless. Sooo how do we interrupt our thoughts and claim courage?

Where in your life could you use more courage?

*To have deeper conversations

*To trust that NOW is the time

*To leave or have a healthy relationship

*To give yourself the guaranteed you’ve been wanting others to offer

*To heal past traumas

*To earn an income you want

*To rid your heart of disappointment

*To love and accept yourself

*To see and witness your true worth

Leanne Babcock travelled the world and learned that the love affair she has with life had always started with her.

It started with allowing her heart to show her the vision and then to lead the way with courage.

Being as sensitive as Leanne is it took her many big leaps to build trust but 1 question always helped her to move through fear.

Why would I hold back from following my heart?

You might be familiar with these answers:

Because I don’t want to upset anyone?

Because I want to have more of a guarantee before I jump?

Because I don’t feel ready? Because… Because… Because…

And today Leanne talks about the truth…

“I was scared. And so are you!”

Fear is a passing thing. And That doesn’t mean that now you should WAIT to let fear pass. No. It means, fear passes when you step towards it….when you walk through it. Truly!

Now is the perfect time to do what’s been in your heart.

What’s in your heart that you haven’t yet done?
