The Great Awakening of 2020 with Dr Christiane Northrup
I’m over the moon to be able to share Episode 6 of the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast with the esteemed Dr. Christiane Northrup. Dr Northrup is a visionary pioneer in women’s health, a board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist, and a 3x New York Times bestselling author. In her unofficial bio, though, she’s a rebel, rockstar and seeker of the truth, and in this episode we address the year of 2020 and the Great Awakening. Christiane has been named one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100 - a group of leaders who are using their voices and talent to awaken humanity, and one of Watkins’ Spiritual 100 - a list of living people that make a unique and spiritual contribution on a global scale… so you can bet this episode is packed with incredible wisdom and revelations! She takes us on her personal journey of what led her to transform lives around the world by empowering women to take their health into their own hands and tune into their inner wisdom. We also hear how and when she began to question mainstream medicine and media, and what led her to search for the truth. We dive deep in this episode to address this unprecedented year, covering everything from the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccines, to racism and the collective uprising. Christiane believes that we are here on the planet at this specific moment for a reason, and she shares her advice on how we can continue to stay in our hearts despite everything going on in the world. If you’re searching for the Light in midst of all the chaos, then this episode’s for you.

Franny has dedicated herself to becoming an expert in the love and dating coaching space, so you can expect we dive deep in this episode into exactly how she helps her clients attract love, deepen their sense of self worth, and their overall feeling of connection to life, love, and purpose. She offers up her opinion on the dating game, and how due to social media and a plethora of apps, our approach to meeting people has changed - for better or for worse. We talk about the fairytale relationship we’re culturally conditioned to believe in, and tackle the tough subject of conscious and unconscious biases in dating. We cover everything from age to race, and unpack her opinion on how we can challenge negative beliefs about ourselves that we may have internalised. That way we can show up confidently and authentically as our whole selves, ready to receive. As well as this, I pick her brains on how we can take personal responsibility to become the kind of partner we are hoping to meet, how we can spot red flags when looking for love, and how we can notice our patterns to overcome blocks and triggers when searching for a relationship.

Dare to Lead with Your Soul with Rebecca Campbell
My guest for episode 4 of the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast is the remarkable Rebecca Campbell. I see Rebecca almost as my big sister in the Hay House family, so I have personal experience of just how gifted and knowledgeable she is when it comes to all things spiritual. A devotional creative and visionary, Rebecca is dedicated to helping people activate their intuition and lead a soul led life. She’s also bestselling author of Light is the New Black and Rise Sister Rise. Accordingly, this episode covers living intuitively, spiritual practice, trusting our timing, and the divine feminine rising. This one is a must listen for anyone looking to strengthen the bond they have with their soul. Rebecca believes that our soul is calling us every moment of every day, and we are all absolutely capable of tuning into our inner knowing. She claims the only difference between someone who is leading a sou led life and someone who is not, is that one is courageous enough to act on it. With this in mind, Rebecca talks us through one of her most significant life changes, leaving her career to pursue her calling, and how she handled that with soul wisdom. She also lets us in on exactly how we too can begin to trust our intuition and balance spiritual guidance with grounded action, to live our most fulfilling life.

Author of New York Times’ bestseller Pussy: A Reclamation, Regena has kickstarted a movement with a collective of women now determined to own their feminine power. With this at the heart of our conversation, we find out exactly why Regena just had to call her book THAT - discussing the thought process and reaction to her fiercely female title. We discuss the derogatory usage of the word and the act of reclaiming it - what it means for us, and why we absolutely must do it.

We even get to hear her opinion on the portrayal of pussys and female pleasure in porn, and cover sex education, getting down to the details of what she thinks we should be teaching our children. I can guarantee you’ll feel empowered and ready to step into your feminine magic after this episode. So, what are you waiting for? Dive on in!

Let Trauma Be Your Teacher with Mastin Kipp
It’s an absolute honour to bring you this episode of the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast with none other than Mastin Kipp. Mastin is one of the greatest thought leaders of our time, and this was recognised by his mention in Oprah’s SuperSoul100. It’s no surprise then, that this episode is medicine for the soul. Mastin lets us in on his practical approach to healing our trauma, and how we can use it to elevate ourselves and those around us. We dig deep to define exactly what trauma looks like (spoiler: it doesn’t always come with a capital T!), and the ways in which it can show up for us in life. This includes attachment styles, addiction, psychological disorders, and even physical pain. We riff on relationships to define the difference between a triggering dynamic and a healthy, healing space for mutual growth. We chat parenting styles and ancestral trauma, collective trauma with regards to Covid-19, as well as where trauma is stored in the physical body. Mixing the spiritual with science to reshape and deshame limiting beliefs, we unpack how triggers are our body’s response to keeping us safe - meaning it’s actually working perfectly! AND Mastin reveals how working on trauma from a conscious place can actually take us ‘beyond spiritual growth’. It’s practical magic - you don’t want to miss this! Time Stamps: 3:37 Mastin’s journey with trauma 6:56 Defining trauma 9:25 Defining addiction 10:51 Trauma symptoms 12:29 How the body responds to trauma 12:57 Deshaming limiting beliefs 14:18 How to spot your trauma through triggers 15:39 Giving a voice to trauma 16:26 Relationships as a safe space to heal 17:40 Dysfunctional relationships 19:14 Incorporating self love to the healing process 20:35 Identifying a healing partner 27:05 The key benefits of healing trauma 30:01 Disconfirming experiences 34:42 Where trauma is stored in the body 38:15 Cognitive flashbacks 40:17 The phenomena of completion 41:18 Psychedelics for integration - not escape 46:53 Parentification and powerlessness - a personal issue 56:21 Different responses to Covid-19 1:03:33 Addressing collective trauma 1:05:35 Live Your Purpose Bootcamp 1:06:40 What Mastin’s loving right now 1:07:19 What turns Mastin on 1:07:50 When was the last time Mastin experienced pure magic 1:09:33 Where to find Mastin online Want behind-the-scenes audio and video footage?

Awaken Your Inner Sex Goddess with Layla Martin
It makes perfect sense that we’re launching the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast with the incredible Layla Martin. As some of you know, I’m training within Layla’s Sex, Love and Relationships certification at The Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality, so I have first hand experience of how profoundly knowledgable she is on these subjects. You can think of this episode as a ‘Goddess Guide to Spiritual Sex’, as we discuss the interconnectivity of sex and spirituality, including how sex can be one of the paths to spiritual awakening. Sex is sacred - and in this episode we cover how and why we can use this practice to tap into a higher space of consciousness. We talk Tantra, and get down to the details of how we can apply this esoteric tradition to our modern lives. Layla speaks into her personal experience and journey, discussing healing from trauma and how that led her to live into her purpose and do what she does now. We dive deep into how we can unblock ourselves and stop holding back from fully embracing our sexuality. We explore the history of women and sex, our conditioning and collective shame, and what it truly means to be a woman in touch with her femininity. As well as this, we unpack self love, sex toys, high sex drive, low sex drive, porn and more… there’s really no stone left unturned in this introductory episode of the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast - and I can’t think of a better way to kick off this magical series! Time Stamps: 2:38 Layla’s journey - living her purpose and healing trauma 9:24 Unlocking our sexuality 12:10 Addressing collective shame around sex 16:13 Orgasm as a form of meditation 17:30 Tantra and its applicability to modern life 20:32 Neotantra - letting self love flow 22:42 Neotantra - sex as a path to spiritual awakening 25:17 What we’re taught about sex and the portrayal in porn 33:00 Women as goddesses - sex as innate power 34:36 Numbness - how to awaken your sexuality 39:32 Speaking into surrender 47:31 Talking toys 52:15 High sex drive and handling rejection 59:21 Layla’s VITA Woman membership programme 1:00:53 What Layla’s loving right now 1:03:47 What turns Layla on 1:05:12 When was the last time Layla experienced pure magic 1:06:58 Where to find Layla online Want behind-the-scenes audio and video footage?
