Episode Description

Not everyone feels the magic of Christmas. The holiday season can be a time of stress, anxiety, and unrealistic expectations. There can be so much pressure at this time of year to be 'happy' and to create a picture postcard experience. While many enjoy the season, there are others who find it difficult and wish it would pass quickly.

Join Susan and her guest, Trista Thorp, a brilliantly certified Vedic Master Educator (by Deepak Chopra) and internationally-recognized leader in the field of meditation and emotional healing, Trista embraces a wide array of approaches to help people transcend the barriers that keep them from living their full potential.

Tune into this episode as Susan and Trista explore the pressures pulling you in all directions and ways to make healthier decisions about how you consciously spend your time, resources and energy. Learn ways to put stress in its place and find more peace and joy from going within.

There is greatness inside everyone and yet many struggle to live the dreams that are buried deep inside. Through years of conditioning we listen to the “should” instead of what is truly right for us. The window from which we view our world is dirty from years of conditioning. Deafened by life’s “shoulds”, we find it difficult to listen to the messages our body transmits. Our thoughts rationalize away what is truly the right choice. We then suffer a build-up of physical and emotional toxicity. This leads to depression, and physical ailments.

Guests share inspiring stories along with the tips, tools and resources I communicate. My goal is to ignite sparks of hope and confidence in you. It’s time to nourish the connection to your mind, body and spirit. It’s time to connect with what you really want to do whether it be a change in career, relationship, or pursuit of a seemingly unattainable goal.

It is time to break free of past conditioning and live your authentic life now!
