82: Joyful Joey - Emotional healing as a gateway to inner power
Joyful Joey is an emotional healing practitioner and educator who focuses on harnessing our body’s natural ability to self-heal & regenerate, so we can re-discover our destiny to thrive. He helps teenagers and adults to resolve their stress, overwhelm, and anxiety for a lifetime—without requiring meditation, yoga, talk therapy, or positive psychology. Joey is also a child of divorce and grew up in a single parent household.  His advice for single parents: You have the power within you to self regulate all stressful and overwhelming feelings. Your child is capable of this as well, and together you can help one another to become even more effective at it. The next time you feel overwhelmed, stressed, or are struggling: pause what you are doing, close your eyes, find at least 2 physical sensations in your body, do nothing (simply feel and surrender to that feeling), and keep doing nothing until you feel a sense of calm. Often in 3 minutes or less your body will self regulate as you allow yourself to feel your feelings. Doing this as often as you need will ensure that you do not pass disruptive/destructive emotional triggers onto your children. Continually enacting this practice will harness & increase the emotional intelligence of the entire family—as each emotional trigger arises moment by moment. You can do this, I believe in you!

Katrine Horn is a self-love activist and life coach. She helps women love themselves unconditionally so that they can model this to their daughters.    Katrine's advice for single moms: I would suggest single mom invested in the self-care she so desperately needs. Self-care is typically not the first thing to go in a crisis situation yet self-care is what will see us through. We have to feel that it's OK to take care of ourselves, before our children, before our work, before family, before obligations. Anything less could have us spinning into insufficiency and possibly burn out.    Connect with Katrine: Facebook https://www.facebook.com/katrinehorncoaching LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/katrinehorn-coaching/ Website: https://katrinehorn.com Connect with Irina: https://linktr.ee/irina089 https://www.irinashehovsov.com/ Sacred Surrender Book: https://amzn.to/3vpwkkP Revolutionary Leaders Book: https://amzn.to/3S1LgzN YouTube: https://bit.ly/2WHrkqM If you like to suggest future topics, please fill out this form  (https://forms.gle/mgwWqHDMr1Srkx9h7) If you like to apply to be a guest (https://forms.gle/QTWQWxGX4EW1USNH6) 👉Help single parents you know by sharing this episode. 👉If you found this beneficial, subscribe to this podcast.

76: Christoph Weigert - How to Encourage Imagination in Kids
"If you prevent a child from living through his various layers of fantasy until they get bored by them, if you cut that process short under any guise, the child won't mature." - A.S. Neil (Summerhill book: https://amzn.to/3PvRyGs)  Originally published in 1960, Summerhill became an instant bestseller and a classic volume of education for an entire generation.  American education lags behind the rest of the world; the children of today face struggles far greater than any previous generation and we, as parents and teachers, must teach them now to make choices for themselves and to learn from the outcome of their decisions. This classic work yet again invites a new view of childhood and presents an essential treatise that challenges us to rethink our approach to education.   Today's guest is Christoph Weigert. He is a fiction and non-fiction author. Spreading awareness of the infinite power of imagination and conscious sexuality make his heart sing. Christoph is the author of "IMAGINATION: The Secret Nobody Talks About"   For this episode we're running a book giveaway.  "IMAGINATION: The Secret Nobody Talks About" - two lucky winners would get this book.

70: Lynn McLaughlin - The Power Of Thought
Did you know your thoughts have powers? What if you could teach your kids that in a fun loving game kind of way? Well now you can. Today's guest is Lynn McLaughlin, As an educator and parent, Lynn is passionate about children's mental health. Lynn speaks openly about her role in enabling one of her children who struggled with debilitating anxiety. She and her niece Amber Raymond, a Social Worker, have joined forces to publish a children's book series titled, "The Power of Thought" where children beam off to an imaginary planet to learn how to manage their emotions in a positive way. Her advice for single parents: Listen with the intent of understanding. Children's behaviors stem from a cause. If I could turn back time, I wouldn't be the parent flying in to solve the problem, to make things right. When my daughter was volatile, I wanted to calm the situation but it did not serve her well. If we can understand why our children feel a certain way, we can then give them the tools to deal with their own emotions in a positive way.

Sarah Armstrong is a "good divorce" proponent and author of 'The Mom's Guide to a Good Divorce: What to Think Through When Children Are Involved.' She defines a good divorce as one that puts the children first and offers a wealth of information about the benefits of a good divorce on children.  Sarah’s daughter, Grace, was seven when Sarah and her husband divorced. Now Grace is a freshman in college. For Sarah, that is a success story. There were numerous struggles as Sarah and her ex-husband worked together to create a loving two-home living environment for Grace.   Holidays, birthdays and the demands of work--both on Sarah and her ex-husband--were challenges. Figuring out the logistics of financials, report cards, the day-to-day and the long-term plan for Grace all presented challenges--and opportunities--for successful parenting. Sarah has lots of advice, including self-care. So many women forget to put themselves first, ever, and that is key to plowing through the difficult times.

Fiona Kong is a single mom who has been a co-parent for 3 years. She is the founder of the Home Sweet Homes journal, which is a tool that helps approach co-parenting in a loving way for children of divorce. Fiona solved a real problem for kids who live between two homes. Her co-parenting journal captures the daily life of a child, daily affirmations, feelings, activities and which home the child is staying at on a given day. A child whose parents are not together anymore still feels a sense of home as the journal creates that connection and it offers an opportunity of clear communication between the parents. Fiona's advice for single parents: seek a community, support, and/or therapy. The first few weeks/months are so tough so having someone to talk to is very important. Don't be afraid to ask for help, many people are willing to lend a hand!

Tiffany personally went through a transformational divorce that included high-conflict custody changes, international litigation and offshore holdings - the kind that make attorneys' heads start spinning.

20: Bhavna Radia - Family Lawyer and Divorce Expert
Bhavna Radia is a family lawyer and divorce expert. She is a single mom to 3 daughters based in London, UK. After her own marriage break down, she suddenly found herself going through the pain of divorce, single parenting, and homelessness with 3 very young children. Bhavna was able to transmute her pain into a victory and today she helps other women navigate the tumultuous road of divorce. She started her company after her divorce because the experience showed her that the divorce process in the UK did not work in the way it should. It left families broken, poorer, and in a situation where there was more hostility. She wanted to bring her skills as a family lawyer, mediator and her personal experience of divorce. Bhavna brought to life her vision of empowering clients, saving them on legal fees. The company is thriving and she is able to keep helping people and couples to divorce with kindness and compassion every day. Her advice for single parents: Do not stress over all the things that you need to do. There are some things that are not as important as others. Having a few things that need to happen every day is fine. As long as her children were fed, clean, and asleep on time was all she could manage to start with. She wouldn't worry about making sure that the house was clean, ironing was done and until things settled down she shouldn't stress about all the extracurricular activities and even being top in the class!

Debbie Zita, a single mom from Melbourne Australia, she's a leading heart centered holistic success coach. She is passionate about helping women find more intimacy, meaning, and financial freedom through their spiritually inspired businesses. She had a tough time going through her single parenting journey as she lost her mom when she was 27 and 4 months pregnant. It took her about 4 years before  she could speak to anyone about that. The most she struggled with was loneliness. She learned to put on a brave face and alienated herself from others. Through growing up emotionally during 5 years she learned a great deal about herself. Single Parenting journey is hard and lonely. She wanted her boy to see a happy mom. If she could go back in the past, she wished she wasn't so hard on herself. Her advice for single parents is to give and receive hugs. To be safe within ourselves. Although the guilt, the shame and overwhelm are natural part at the beginning of single parenting, this too shall pass.

Jennifer is a successful entrepreneur having founded four businesses across four industries, holds a master’s in business, has pioneered change for women abroad, succeeded as a competitive sportsperson, adventured globally, and all while solo parenting two kids.
