Conscious Journeys is a podcast of stories and conversations surrounding consciousness, our awakened state of being, what it means to live a conscious life and topics inspired by higher awareness. Listeners will take away insightful advice, humorous and relatable stories and inspiration to create a more mindful, conscious journey for their lives.
After a short hiatus from the podcast, we return with a new season about all things travel.
I spoke with Summer Atkinson, your average American (her words not mine) who broke out of the corporate world and embarked on a 6+ month travel journey with her partner Jackson. We discuss choosing happiness, South American destinations, budget friendly travel, Incan Tequila, comfort zones cultural sensitivity, using social media as a catalyst to connect with community and what the future brings for these millenial travelers.
Summer and Jackson manage their Instagram account, @outthere_travels which has acquired 4k+ followers in less than 6 months. To see epic photos, learn about budget travel and read about their adventures check out instagram.com/outthere_travels and outtheretravels.com
When we share from our heart, the intention and energy is pure, allowing others the opportunity to fully receive our message. Today is a share of an experience of sharing authentically vs. messages with hidden meanings or unconscious motive.

In a culture saturated with "good vibes only" and "be the light", it can be challenging to accept the discomfort and pain we experience. In today's episode I offer an emotional regulation technique to fully accept where you're at and remember that sometimes it's okay to not be okay.
In this first episode we talk about what conscious awareness is and its powerful impact on creating new habits and lifestyle changes. Katie talks about her "spiritual awakening" and how one moment of consciousness led to an exploration into self-identity, spirituality and her deep practice of yoga.
