Elizabeth's Gift of Synesthesia
We recently discovered that my oldest daughter has the incredible gift of synesthesia.  Over the past 6-months we've spent countless hours just chatting about it because I find it so intriguing.  As a way to bring you more of me and my family, I recorded one of our conversations so you could hear a little about her, a little about synesthesia and get a little peek further inside my life.  The audio is uncut and unedited, mostly because I wanted to keep it authentic.  So, my apologies for the "lack of quality" in the audio.

Transgenerational Trauma: Healing Your Sh*t So You Don't Share It With Your Kids
One the most impactful things I've discovered over the past year is the importance of the work I do as it relates to my own kiddos.  Healing my shit has, in turn helped them to start healing theirs now while they're young.  My oldest even told me one day, "Mom, I'm so grateful to watch you do the work you're doing.  It's helping me learn all of this stuff now while I'm young instead of when I'm your age." Trans-generational (aka inter-generational) trauma is basically your power to heal the trauma of past and future generations by healing your own.  These don't always have to be BIG traumas. Melissa and I chat about the impact healing your own shit can have on your kids and how doing this work leads to sustainable healing and change in your life (rather than simply putting a band-aid over it). About Melissa: Melissa Lapides is a seasoned Psychotherapist, pleasure queen and powerful trauma healer. She has spent many years on a spiritual path seeking the most effective tools to support full healing of mind, body and spirit. She is HUGE on safety and integrity.

Finding Someone to Help Raise Your Vibration, Not Just Someone to Vent to.
Wanna raise your vibration - surround yourself with people who will help you raise it.  We all have those friends we can vent to - and that is important!  But we need to be careful we're not seeking out people to simply affirm our negative feelings.  Negativity breeds more negativity.  Instead, find someone who will help you process through the sh*t while helping you increase your energy and raise your vibe.

I Know the "Secret Sauce"
You can "do" all the things:  hire a coach, meditate, visualize, gain clarity, face fears.....those are important action steps we need to take.  But the "secret sauce" that makes it all work - TRUST. We've been so programmed to trust that other people know best for us that we have quit trusting ourselves and the Divine.   We play small because we're afraid, not just of the outcome(s) and not even just of taking action - we are afraid of our own intuition.  We don't trust our own judgement, when in reality - trusting our own selves and trusting the support of the Universe is the most powerful thing we can do!

Henry Ford Was Right! How to "Flip the Script" with NLP
Whether you think you can or think you can't... you are right!  Our brains are constantly seeking to be "right" and "comfortable".  Which means, if you believe that you are "too busy" - your brain will seek opportunities to be busy.  If you believe you are destined to be broke, your brain will seek to keep you broke.  It's a phenomenon called nuero-linguistic programming and basically it states that you are what you say you are.   In this episode I chat about how you can literally "flip the script" in order to change your life.

Ending Generational Trauma
So often we talk about ending "cycles of abuse" and "cycles of addiction".... but what about other traumas we pass along inadvertently?  We always want what's best for our kids, but a lot of times in the make of protecting them, we share the fears that we obsess about, therefore continuing generational traumas.  Women, for us this is most often about weight and body image.  But, it can be anything from fears around money, career, relationships, family structure.... you name it. In this episode I talk about the steps I work through to heal and insure I end some of these cycles for my own kids.

STOP Comparisonitis
Just because "she" has something you don't, doesn't make you LESS or her BETTER - it just means she has it and you don't.  That's all. I've been witness to the staggering increase of anxiety in teenagers because they are so busy comparing themselves to others.  I've also seen it in my clients.  "Her house is cleaner than mine because she has a cleaning lady." - SO WHAT???? STOP comparing yourself, because YOU are amazing!

PMS is Not Always the Cause of My Emotions
I've always been an emotional being.  I cry at commercials.  I get teary-eyed any time I watch my kids do something cool.  I feel things ALL THE TIME.  And for so long I've pushed that down, I've let it be hidden.  I've let people make fun of me for being "so emotional".  In reality, when you let yourself FEEL your feelings you start to learn so much about yourself.  You discover things and figure out how to process them and work through them.  So, STOP letting people dismiss your emotions as being due to PMS, or just being a woman.  Emotions are part of who YOU are and you get to honor that!!

Using Sexual Energy to Fuel Your Soul
We can't talk about unlock and unleashing passion without talking about....SEX!  So, I naturally asked the GODDESS, Olivia Seline to join us on this episode.  The power our sexuality has over all aspects of our life is incredible.  When we unlock our sexual goddess, we unlock so much in every area.  Think of it as the charger of our spirit - when we plug in sexually, we get energy that we can use to live a fulfilled, purposeful life. Olivia leads women to sexual liberation so they can have vibrant, intimate relationships & steamy sex lives. As a Sex & Success Coach for entrepreneurial women, I want to show you how your sex life is DIRECTLY correlated to the success that you create and magnetize in your business. By turning yourself on - you have the power to change the trajectory of your relationship, your business, your life, and the lives of all of those you come in contact with.  https://www.oliviaseline.com/ Download your free workbook here:  http://bit.ly/PurposeUnleashedLaunch

The Fears and BS Stories Holding You Back
You might not even realize it, but there are often deep seated fears and bullshit stories you tell yourself everyday that are holding you back from doing what you want and living the life you want.  They might not even feel like fears - they be perfectly logical... but they're still grounded in fear. In this episode I chat about fears I faced as I launched an online business and retired from my 22 year career.  Fears I'd had my entire life that have held me back.  I also talk about how to get clear about what those fears are and how deal with them. Are you ready?  Let's go! Still need to download your FREE workbook to go along with these 8 launch episodes?  Grab one here:  http://bit.ly/PurposeUnleashedLaunch

Showing Up When Sh*t is HARD
Who do you show up as when shit gets hard?  It's easy to envision the person we want to be and the life we want to have and it's easy to do all the "fun" things when it's easy, but how do you show up when things don't go as you planned?  What version of yourself do you become when an old fear or BS story shows up again like a big ugly dragon?   My amazing coach, Autumn Bensette and I chat about how to navigate all of that - why it's so important and how to do it.  She shares some of her stories and how she overcame the hard and the impact it had on her life and her business when she pushed through, even on the hard days. Autumn is the Host of The Wealthy Babe Podcast, founder of The Bossy Babe Brand and Facebook hub, Business & Money Coach for the Online Coach craving a business, life and bank account without limits and self-published author.

Her mission is to guide women world-wide to feel the fear and do it anyway in their pursuit of an abundant and fulfilling life in not only their business but with their family!

What the F*** is a Mood Board and Why Do I Need One?
When I decided to create my own business, one of the first people I connected with was the QUEEN, Shawna Poliziani.  The single most important step in re-igniting your fire and unlocking a new purpose is gaining clarity.  When Shawna walked me through the process and created a mood board I started to see who I really was.  Having someone else mirror back for me what I couldn't see was the most enlightening experience.  In this episode we talk about what exactly a mood board is, how to create one and why you NEED one (even if you're not in business).   https://shawnapoliziani.com/ Download your free workbook here:  http://bit.ly/PurposeUnleashedLaunch

Taking Massive Messy Action
So you've found what lights you up, you've faced some fears and BS stories.... you've done some of the "inner work" - Now WHAT? Typically taking massive messy action happens along side all of the hard inner work - as we get more courageous we take the action.  The key is, we need to take action - even if it's not perfect, even if we're still scared.... hence the name, MASSIVE & MESSY!!!

Who Is This Lit Up Version of You?
Who is the "next level version" of you?  What does she love?  What lights her up?  How does she act?   Getting crystal clear about what you want for your life and who you want to be is so important.  It's so easy for us to get lost in a life we don't even create for ourselves because we aren't clear on what we want. In this episode we'll talk about what clarity really looks like, how to get crystal clear about who you want to be and what it means to actually "step into" that version of yourself.

Welcome to Purpose Unleashed!!!
 Hi! Welcome to Purpose Unleashed. I’m Kari and I’m SO damn excited to be here. If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be here right now hosting this podcast I would’ve told you that you were absolutely fricking batshit crazy - but I couldn’t be happier to be here, sharing this with you.  In this episode you'll learn a little about me, my purpose (helping moms to unlock their fire, purpose and passion) and my vision for this podcast. Before you begin, please feel free to download a copy of the FREE workbook that goes along with this 8-episode launch series. These first 8 episodes are really to show you what I walked through (and worked through) to reignite my own fire and rediscover my purpose and passion.  While they are laid out in the order that I had to walk through them, they are not intended to be a checklist for you to complete; just a picture of things I've experienced as a I've transitioned into this next level version of myself. Thank you SO much for sharing in this space with me.   And, as my girl Olivia Seline says:  Take what you want, leave the rest! Download FREE workbook here:  http://bit.ly/PurposeUnleashedLaunch
