Ep 92 Narcissistic Character Assassination — Janet's Story
The narcissist character assassination is designed to annihilate you psychologically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and sometimes, physically. Narcissistic personalities think in severe black and white. To them, you are either all good or all bad. Once a narcissist pulls you off of the pedestal they once put you on, they will often launch some sort of character assassination against you. I hope this episode helps you to handle this type of attack with more understanding and a sense of dignity.

Ep 90 How to Reduce Anxiety, Stress and Fear
Meditation has been known to reduce anxiety, stress, and fear. So many people dismiss meditation because they think that it is a space that is devoid of thought and then they say, "this isn't for me". Well, it's impossible to not have thoughts as a human being. Meditation allows you to get closer to your true self. It allows you to get in touch with your heart space instead of always living above the neckline. You can find my free Heart Space Guided Meditation on my YouTube Channel of the same name Heal Your Story with Heidi Dellaire.

Ep 86 Setting Better Boundaries as an Empath or Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)
When you were a child, did your parents or teachers see you as sensitive or shy? Do you need to withdraw during busy days to someplace where you can have privacy and relief from the situation? Do you make it a high priority to arrange your life to avoid upsetting or overwhelming situations or people? Do you notice or enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, or works of art? Do you have a complex and bountiful inner life? You might just be a highly sensitive person. I work with many people who are empaths or highly sensitive people. I understand because I am a highly sensitive person and have been down this road more than once in my past. Now, I help others through this. I am here to help. I help HSP's build better boundaries and calm their nervous system to have a better understanding and trust of their inner guidance system. I teach tangible tools to help your situation.

Ep 84 Empaths and Narcissists — What Is the Draw?
Empaths and Narcissists have a magnetic connection and this is why it is so important for the empath to have solid boundaries, which many don't even know they need. Without solid boundaries, the empath will always fall prey to a narcissist. Add gaslighting to this scenario and the empath is in a tailspin. I work with many people who are empaths or highly sensitive people. I understand because I am a highly sensitive person and have been down this road more than once in my past. Now, I help others through this. I am here to help.

EP 83 "Easier Said Than Done" - A Sign of Self-Betrayal and Resistance to Change
If you want your life to be different, you have to make it happen. Nothing is going to improve your life if you aren't willing to make changes. YOU have to go out and DO! Let's walk through the phrase "easier said than done" to understand why we instantly respond this way when we feel like something is too hard to do. It's actually a phrase of self-betrayal. This episode may make some feel a little edgy and that is because you have continually put your life on hold instead of taking any action...getting caught up in the feeling that something is too hard to do. Stick with me on this one. I am here to help. Start small. Baby steps to change or changing your life.

EP 82 Podcast Relaunch: Heal Your Story
The podcast is changing its name to Heal Your Story. Have you ever noticed how people tell stories about who they are that just don't match up with who they present to be? We often tell ourselves stories in order to cope...with past trauma or with something deeply ingrained in us from childhood. That can all manifest into physical pain. I am excited to share this new podcast which is much more related to the work that I do with clients. I help people get out of their busy heads and back in touch with their heart space. It allows them to shift the narrative they have been telling themselves in order to heal. I share a little bit about my healing journey, which as in turn, allowed me to help others with their healing. If you are interested in working with me, you can sign-up for a Heal Your Story Strategy Session to learn more about my Heart Space Sessions. They are truly powerful. You can find out more about me, my services and my book here @ https://heididellaire.com/ or on my self-development resource site lovewideopen.com You can follow me at Heidi Dellaire or Love Wide Open on all social media channels.

Ep 80 What's the Secret to Attracting Positivity?
Have you ever wondered how some people move through life with such grace and ease even in times of turmoil? Nothing seems to keep them from being positive or attracting more positive situations to them? What's their secret? Their secret is a daily practice of gratitude and appreciation. And when I say, "daily" I mean "daily". It isn't just some ho-hum feeling grateful for a minute and then not practicing it again for weeks. I work with many clients in this area. We work on a daily practice of gratitude and appreciation to bring them more peace and ease in life. I wanted to do something on a larger scale to help more people, so I created an Attract Positivity Through Gratitude and Appreciation 14-Day Challenge. I really love this challenge. It's fun, easy and sets you up for future success in attracting positivity into your life. I would love to connect with you more inside the challenge. You can find it under the courses tab on either heididellaire.com or lovewideopen.com or through this direct link. courses.heididellaire.com/p/gratitude-appreciation-challenge I will talk with you soon.

Ep 78 Taking Personal Responsibility
Personal Responsibility is a battle cry for 2021! I have had so many friends, clients, and colleagues touch upon how personal responsibility is part of their growth path and spiritual path this year. In this episode, I discuss how a call with a client inspired me to record this episode. When we take responsibility for ourselves and our actions, we leave room for better things and experiences to come into our lives. Sending you all a big hug and lots of love as we start this year and SEASON 4 of this podcast.

Ep 77 Embracing Change in an Unpredictable World
2020 has been a challenging year. Many of us found ourselves bombarded with change daily. How did you adapt or pivot to take on this change? In this episode, I discuss why I have been so quiet this year and what it has meant to me now that we are headed into 2021. I also provide some practical tips on how you can learn to embrace change more easily. I found great solace from going within and really deciding who I wanted to be going into 2021. I was absent from my podcast and my social media because I was busy working on myself and with my clients to discover the best versions of ourselves. If you are interested in learning more about Heart Space Sessions, you can go to HeidiDellaire.com and head to the "Work With Me" section.

Ep 76 The Art of Holding Heart Space: How We Help Heal The World
What does that mean...the art of holding heart space? "The Art of Holding Heart Space" is the tagline to my social media presence and website for Love Wide Open. Love Wide Open...the art of holding heart space. So many people have asked me what it means and how you hold heart space for yourself and others. I will even go as far as to say that holding heart space can literally save the world if we all practiced it.

Ep 75 Stepping Away From Toxic Personalities
If you are in a relationship with someone with a toxic personality, you might find yourself defending everything you say or do. Over time you will begin to question your own perspective as each action on your part causes a negative reaction. Does that sound familiar? So many people enter into relationships with toxic partners. There are many reasons this may happen, but for the most part, it is because there is something unhealed or something that you don't even understand about yourself that drew this type of person to you. I work as a Heart Space Coach with clients around these types of issues. I work with folks to restore their self-esteem and self-worth and help guide them to a more confident self in all of their relationships. I use an integrative, embodied approach to healing.

Ep 74 How Do We Cultivate Self-Awareness?
We often believe that we are self-aware when we really ARE NOT. Being self-aware helps a person make more informed decisions, and contributes to one's overall wellbeing. Self-awareness makes it easier to identify situations and people that hit our triggers and enables us to anticipate our own reactions. It allows us to make positive behavioral changes that can lead to greater personal and interpersonal success. Being aware of yourself also helps in identifying what your stressors are, so you can utilize the information to build effective coping mechanisms. In this episode, I will give some tips on how to cultivate self-awareness. It will help you and the others around you. If you are interested in working with me directly, you can find out more about my Heart Space Sessions 1-to-1 Coaching at HeidiDellaire.com or find more self-development articles at LoveWideOpen.com.

Ep 73 Facing the Unknown: Covid-19 Pandemic and Naming Our Fears
Around the world, fears of Covid-19 are spreading faster than the actual virus. Countries are firming up their borders, many businesses are closing, thousands of people are buying with panic, and the majority of us are being asked to self-isolate. It's entirely understandable if you have feelings of fear, anxiety, or insecurity at this time. We are feeling collective grief: grief for what was, what is and what may be. We are in an unprecedented time. The only thing we can control is ourselves in the present moment. Mindfulness and meditation can help ease those moments of doubt and grief. You can also find my coaching services and blog at Heidi Dellaire.com along with other self-development articles at LoveWideOpen.com. Thank you for listening. ~Heidi

Ep 72 What Is Mindfulness And How Do You Do It In a Busy World?
In this episode, I discuss the difference between meditation and mindfulness. That meditation is about quieting the mind, while mindfulness is about being aware of what you are doing while you are doing it. Granted, there is more to it than that. I give some examples of how to bring mindfulness into your life. It takes practice if you are someone who is always up in your head. I teach mindfulness and meditation to my clients as part of their healing routine. There is a mindfulness blog series over on HeidiDellaire.com. I would love to connect more with you.

Ep 69 How You Treat Others is a Reflection of What You Hold Within
Being mindful of how you treat others can determine what kind of heart space you are opening up to others. As humans, we carry a powerful darkness within. It is part of the human condition and when triggered it feels so natural we do not even realize when are allowing it enter into our being. When we treat others poorly, we are dehumanizing that person in our brains. Be the seeds of love we need in the world. ~Heidi If you would like to work with me for Heart Space Coaching, you can reach out through the contact form on HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com.

Ep 67 Maybe It's Time For A Spiritual Cleanse
All the negative thoughts, experiences, and situations are absorbed into the spirit, much like unhealthy toxins are absorbed into the body. Do you know how good it feels to stand in the hot shower and let the water run over your face after you’ve been crying? It’s a spiritual cleansing. That’s what we are talking about here. But saying one needs a spiritual cleanse and understanding how to go about achieving the cleanse are two very different things. Before you continue with your cleanse, it is important to note the reasons why you need one. What negative thoughts or feelings do you need to purge so that you can make space for positive thoughts and feelings to fill that space? You can reach me at HeidiDellaire.com to learn more about my book or my Heart Space Coaching or at LoveWideOpen.com for self-help and self-development articles and my personal blog.

Ep 66 Is Your Empathy Ruining Your Life?
Are you an empathetic person? If so, you may have run into this problem before. I sure used to before I learned some healthier boundaries. When you take on another person‘s emotions or baggage as your own, it is very easy to lose yourself in the process. Where many empathetic people have a difficult time turning on and off their empathy, it is necessary to a certain extent or else you run the risk of ruining your own life and happiness. So, is your empathy preventing you from living your life? I would love to hear from you about this episode or anything else that is on your mind. You can reach me at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com If you are interested in my book, Roots and Tendrils, which is my journey back from being too empathetic towards others and not enough towards myself, you can learn more on HeidiDellaire.com If you are interested in working with me for Heart Space Sessions, reach out through HeidiDellaire.com.

Ep 65 Fixed vs Growth Mindsets
People with a growth mindset have an underlying belief that their learning and intelligence can grow with time and experience. According to Dweck, when a student has a fixed mindset, they believe that their basic abilities, intelligence, and talents are fixed traits. Let's talk about what it takes to have a growth mindset and a positive mindset to move forward in life and learn new things.

Ep 64 Healing From Within: An Interview with Author, Catherine B. Roy

Ep 63 Life Paths: How the Hell Did I End Up Here?
So many of my clients find themselves in this place in life. Hell, I found myself in this place in life once. We wonder who the hell we are. Why did life get so off track? Is it too late? Can I change it? Do I have the power within myself to do something else? Well, I am here to tell you, Yes! You do still have power to change your life, you just need to WANT to CHOOSE to change it. It's all up to you. If you would like to speak with me about this episode or want to work with me, reach out to me through the contact form at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com. Have an amazing day and I am happy to be part of your journey. Sending lots of love. ~Heidi

Ep 62 Lessons in Love: Thank You, Elizabeth Gilbert
I had the pleasure of hearing Elizabeth Gilbert speak on the last leg of her book tour for City of Girls at Memorial Church at Harvard last week. I got up and asked a question about something that Liz talks about a lot...being love in the room. Liz has been an inspiration to me in many ways and has been a part of my journey. Her book Big Magic was the push I needed to understand that Love Wide Open was a big magic idea. I now teach people about love after learning to love myself again. My own book was my love letter to myself and a healing journey. I now coach people on heart journeys. Thanks Liz for all that you do to remind us that love is messy and beautiful and that life was meant to be lived. There are several powerful quotes from Liz in this episode along with the Derek Walcott poem, Love After Love. I also wrote an article about it for my Heart Space Lessons blog on LoveWideOpen.com. You can find it here https://bit.ly/2Ya3JxN. If you would like to reach out to me or work with me, you can contact me at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com Sending lots of love. ~Heidi

Ep 61 Becoming the Creator of Your Own Life
How do you take control of your own life and make it what you want it to be? How do you become who you want to be? We are capable of becoming anything we want to be. It takes practice and diligence. I work with so many clients who get stuck in a self-limiting belief mindset and can't see that they have the ability to CHOOSE what happens next in their lives. They have the responsibility right in their own hands. Understanding that I was capable of anything allowed me to finish my book, Roots and Tendrils. If you would like to work with me or reach out about this episode, you can find me through the contact form at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com. You may also leave me a message or become a sponsor of this podcast at Anchor.fm/lovewideopen. Thank you for listening and doing the work on yourselves to keep growing. Much love. ~Heidi

Ep 60 When Someone Won't Forgive You
We have all been through it. We have made mistakes. We have hurt people. What do we do when someone won't forgive us for what we have done to them? Is it our responsibility to try to make them understand and forgive us or do we need to forgive ourselves in the midst of taking responsibility for our actions and say that we are sorry? I would love to hear more from you. You can find me at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com. If you are interested in working with me for Heart Space Coaching, reach out through the websites above.

Substance abuse is a topic that comes up a lot with clients, whether it be their personal addiction or the addiction of someone they love.

Ep 57 Positive Self-Talk: Daily Positive Affirmations
Words have power. We can either use negative words or positive words. Negative words hold us back. Positive words propel us forward. The language we use with ourselves internally and with the world at large have a major impact on who we become. They can keep us struggling or they can empower us to strive for high achievement and a better life for ourselves and the world. There is power in getting into a routine or habit of positive self-talk. Let me know what your words of positivity are going to be for yourself.

Ep 56 Negative Self-Talk: How It Limits Our Growth and Expansion
Sometimes we aren't even aware that we have a negative internal dialogue that can also spill out to the Universe and become our reality. Negative words and thoughts become what we are. If we believe we aren't good enough, then we aren't. The things we think and speak are important to our stagnation or our growth. Let's discuss those negative words and phrases and touch upon how to slowly shift that around. If you are listening on Anchor, you can send me a message via the app, if you are listening on Apple Podcasts, I would love your honest review.

Ep 55 Death Teaches Us How to Live
If you knew you had one week to live, what would you do differently with your time? If it is different than your every day life, it is time to dig deeper. Let's talk about how death teaches us how to live instead of wasting our precious gift of life. If you are listening on Anchor, you can send me a message about this episode or any previous episode. If you are listening on Apple Podcasts, please leave your honest review of this podcast. There is a poem in my book, Roots and Tendrils, that speaks to this topic called "Life".

May 24, 2019
Ep 54 Why Do We Fear Change?
Why are we so quick to fear change? Why do we get anxious about the things we can't control? Change, often, brings us amazing periods of growth. So what must we do to embrace change and put fear aside? I would love your feedback on this episode or any other episode. If you are listening on Apple Podcasts or another platform that allows reviews, I would also love your review. I can be reached at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com.

Ep 53 Keeping An Open Heart
So many of us push away our discomforts and opt to stay only in our comfort zones. What we are ultimately doing is pushing away those things that we need to work through from past hurts, traumas or faulty beliefs. When we lean into the discomfort and allow ourselves to heal our "stuff", we free ourselves and allow are hearts to be more open. And when our hearts are more open, so are our minds and vice versa. Don't forget to subscribe and review if your listening platform allows it. Thank you.

Ep 52 Rebuilding Your Life After Leaving a Toxic Relationship
Many of you have heard me talk about chasing joy after getting out of a toxic relationship. I have made a few videos about it on both the Love Wide Open Channel on YouTube and also Love Wide Open on Facebook. How do you do it? How do you rebuild your life after losing yourself and giving yourself away to a toxic connection with someone else. It takes a lot of hard work and effort but it starts with getting back into doing the things you love and spending time with the people who love you. There are numerous articles about it on LoveWideOpen.com. If you have any questions about this episode or want to work with me, I can be reached through either LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com.
May 06, 2019
Ep 51 Loving Someone Too Hard Can Become Tainted / Toxic Love
Just because you love someone doesn't mean that they are going to be able to receive it. You can't save someone with your love. Only they can save themselves. When we squeeze too hard, we can squash the love we are trying to give away and then it just becomes toxic for both parties involved. You can find me on LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com. Please reach you about this episode or something you would like to hear about.
May 02, 2019

Ep 48 Embracing Our Shadow and Our Light
We can learn a lot about ourselves and society in general if we choose to embrace the shadow self instead of ignore it or make it "not" part of who we actually are.

Feel free to reach out to discuss this topic at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more about my book Roots and Tendrils at HeidiDellaire.com.

Ep 45 Does Time Really Heal Wounds?
We have all had painful moments that stay with us. Time can often heal these wounds and painful moments if we let it. In this episode, I discuss a break-up I went through awhile back and how with time, the pain has lessened. I also read a poem from my book, Roots and Tendrils (available on Amazon) called Heart Cleanse. Heart Cleanse is a piece that talks about pain and releasing it to allow it to form a scar. How are you working through your pain? How are you also seeking out the joyous moments to help you heal? You can contact me at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com

Ep 44 What NOT to Say to Someone Who is Grieving
We have all been there. We have been on both sides. We have been the one who is in pain and someone says something that just hurts your heart in their kindest attempt to help the situation. We have also been the one that is feeling so much need to try to help the situation that we end up saying something the discounts the pain that someone else is in. Let's always work hard to just stay in presence with someone who is in pain. Often, our presence is all that is needed. Reach out to me at email@example.com or at HeidiDellaire.com with feedback

Ep 43 Self-Love: What is it?

Ep 42 Cutting Energetic Soul Ties with Former Romantic Partners
Have you ever wondered why you can't stop thinking about someone you were involved with or why you hold on to certain items of theirs? When we get emotionally and phyically involved with a person in a romantic relationship, we create energetic soul ties to that person. It's important to clear those soul ties so that both parties may move on with their lives. Listen to understand chord cutting and why it is important. This can also be done with anyone you have an energetic bond with. My book, Roots and Tendrils, is a journey through romantic relationships that ultimately leads to self love.

Ep 40 Sitting in Discomfort
What is it in us that makes us lash out at others when we can't sit in our own discomfort? Why do we think it is an act of strength or power to tear someone else down when we don't even take the time to understand a situation? We have to dig deep within ourselves to understand why we, as humans, stop seeing other people as human beings with feelings. Why do we stop acting with empathy and compassion when we are in a state of fear? You can find me at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com.
