Permission Granted

Permission Granted

By Krista Resnick Coaching
Welcome to Permission Granted.

Here’s the truth Mama: Midlife is a MAGICAL time. But along the way you forgot who you were. You lost you. The purpose and healing you crave in this season starts with granting yourself permission.

Permission to say no without guilt, to let go of the busy addiction and slow down, to stop hiding and let yourself be seen and heard, permission to release the self-judgement and celebrate yourself, permission to embrace that the healthiest choice you can make is prioritizing you.

You hold pad with all the permission slips.
Let’s get started.

61. Create more purpose, peace and pleasure in your life with Solara Amun Ra
Have you ever asked the question, who am I? I know I certainly have and my guess is that you have too.   My guest today...Solara Amun Ra formerly known as Raquel Vasallo, literally shed her old paradigm and ways of being to embrace her new identity. It took Solara a near death experience to realize that the fast pace, high achieving lifestyle she was trying to uphold, was literally breaking her down. After this experience she took life into her hands, quit her job and move across the globe Within less than a year Solara was stepping into her truth and creating peace, pleasure and purpose in her life.   She began working with top companies such as Fox Films, Paramount Pictures, Sony, Orange Telecom, McDonalds, Westin Palace and major advertising agencies like McCann Erickson and BBDO, helping employees and CEOs radically amplify their creativity, innovation and greater vision.   Through that work she found her true calling as an elite mentor to powerhouse visionary women, who are ready to catapult to the next level of success. This time it’s not just about financial success, but radical freedom. Ten years later, her life shifted again when she became physically and mentally incapacitated due to severe mercury poisoning. Not being able to read or write, Solara started channeling teachings and paintings that became powerful healing and activation portals. Before listening to this episode you may want to consider, Do you struggle to feel attracted to your partner? Are you pushing hard to get to your goals but can’t figure out why you don’t ever really quite make it there?  Are you resistant to the word purpose? Do you crave more peace and space in your life, but can’t quite seem to figure out how to make it happen? Are you tired or running on empty? Do you crave space and peace in your life, but have no idea how to get there? Solara is the #1 Best Selling Author of “Spiritual Seductress, The High-Powered Women’s Guide to Devour the World through Spiritual Guidance.” She is the pre-eminent Spiritual Advisor to female Visionaries and Thought Leaders. She is an International Speaker, Mystic Artist and Feminine Leadership Trendsetter.

60. Stop fearing other's opinions and set healthy boundaries with Cappie
Do you know that you were born with a calling?  Perhaps you do, but like my caller today, you are so wrapped up in pleasing others that you aren't able to prioritize your own needs.  Do you struggle with boundaries?  Do you know you are a leader, yet you lead with hesitation and timidity?  Do you lead with one foot in and one foot out?  Do you find that people often put expectations on you as a leader that make you uncomfortable? Friends if this is you, you will learn so much from my beautiful caller Cappie.   Cappie is a leader, but sometimes the title of the word leader feels heavy and makes her want to run the other way.    She knows she was created for a purpose, but she often finds that time slips through her fingers because she struggles to set boundaries and prioritize the things she needs to get done to BE the embodied leader she is meant to be.   I hope you enjoy my coaching call with Cappie.

57. What's actually blocking you from your fullest expression
Pain pushes until vision pulls...Michael Beckwith Do you often think that there is something wrong with you because you can't seem to make the necessary habits required to reach your potential? I promise you, there is nothing wrong with you, but like the majority of us, somewhere along your journey, you experienced trauma or pain that caused you to feel unworthy, unsafe, unlovable or broken.  As a response and a protection to that pain, your ego created something called a compensatory strategy.  That strategy is used as a way to compensate for our feelings of insecurity, lack or fear.   We all want to feel safe in the world.  We want to feel loved and know that we have value-so we create these strategies as a means to earn or hustle for our place in the world.   But these strategies will only cause you to feel overwhelmed, sad, angry, resentful and burned out.   Tune into this podcast to learn how some of these strategies might show up in your life and what you can do about them. Key Topics: How high achievement isn't necessarily a good thing. The real reason that you're a people pleaser. The truth of why you might be burned out. What's underneath your loneliness, sadness and blocks.  7 Secrets to Sustainable Success

56. Does 'feeling' scare you?
Are you afraid to be still?  If you do slow down for a moment, what are you afraid of?   For some of you,  being still might feel relatively traumatic.  You may even find yourself bracing, just waiting for the other shoe to drop.   My 'compensatory strategy' in life was to stay busy.  When I was busy, it meant I didn't have to feel.   I was afraid to sit with my feeling because I didn't know how to sit with my feelings.  I didn't even really know what I was feeling.   Today's podcast is all about the compensatory strategies we fall into to feel safe, loved and worthy.  I share in this episode my strategy and share a couple additional ones to help you think about and identify yours.  We all have them-so know that you're not alone.  Key Topics: Why compensatory strategies are what we use to feel seen and worthy in the world. Why so many people are afraid to be still. What compensatory strategies might hold us back from. Further questions for contemplation and reflection to take this podcast deeper.

55. Why "knowing it all" can block you from your highest potential
Have you ever thought that you’ve done “all the work” or know everything you need to know, but the truth of it deep down is, things still aren’t shifting? I want you to consider a few of these questions: Do you get overwhelmed easily yet have trouble asking for help? Are you hard on yourself? Do you have a fierce inner critic? Do you internalize your feelings? Is it difficult for you to ask for support? Are you in a marriage or relationship where you feel isolated? Do you feel like you are dependent on your partner or you are living according to their dreams and desires more than your own? Are you a people-pleaser? Do you have a hard time making your needs a priority? We can bury ourselves in books, podcasts, workshops and seminars all day, but you aren't embodying and experiencing the work?  You will not ever reach your highest potential.   Until you have an experiential transformation, until we feel it somatically in our body?   IT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING!!! This Episodes Key Topics: The David Principle-How the real work is actually about chipping away at what no longer serves you.  Why living in our heads is so dangerous. The Key to true transformation and growth. The #1 most unselfish thing you can do for those you love.  LINKS The 7 Secrets to Sustainable Success

54. What to do when the Inner Critic Strikes
In this episode, I ask you to truly consider allowing the inner critic's voice to be heard, but to meet it with compassion.   What we resist persists so if we judge the critic or ignore it, it will only DEMAND our attention by getting louder.   We all struggle with that internal voice from time to time. This episode will encourage you on days when you find yourself comparing frequently to others, feeling like you come up short, failing at your own expectations,  or just sitting in a pit of pity, to simply take heart. Those are moments of suffering.  Are you being compassionate with yourself?  Or are you allowing the critic to  create a lot of self-beating, guilt and shame in your life.   This episode will encourage you to RINSE your thoughts and feelings, and meet yourself with grace and compassion.   LINKS THE HEALTHY SELFISH FACEBOOK COMMUNITY | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM

51: The Female Fat Solution with Dr. Beth Westie
Join me in this episode as I talk to Dr. Beth Westie about all things female health. Dr. Beth Westie is Doctor of Chiropractic, Author, Speaker, Women’s Health & Nutrition Expert. She is the author of the Best Selling book, The Female Fat Solution, the creator of the 12 Week Female Fat Solution Challenge, and the host of The Female Health Solution Podcast. She is on a mission to educate and empower women to learn more about their bodies and uses nutrition to help women work with the natural cycle of their bodies to achieve lasting weight loss results. I love how when Dr. Westie describes the female body, she refers to the fact that each week we are literally a different woman from the week before (due to hormones and how we are wired). This requires us to approach each week differently as we navigate life and fuel our bodies with foods that regulate and flush out hormones that otherwise might be locked into our system.

🎧 { TSBA 44}-Knowing you're enough with Tiffany
Insecurity and low self worth can be extremely painful and blinds us from seeing who we truly are. Believe it or not we are not born insecure, we become that way.  We live in a world where we believe that we must people please, perfect and perform in order to be seen and loved.  This is a pattern developed in childhood based on the beliefs we accumulate when people are critical of us or we feel judged in some way. We live in a world, where most people are pretty hard on themselves and it leaks into people being hard on other people.   People who have judged or criticized you aren’t bad people, they probably are extremely critical and judgmental of themselves.  The bottom line of all this is that when we commit to doing the internal work and get the help and support we need to grow our ‘insides’ we begin to act differently on the outside. Confidence doesn’t always come from adding more things to our ever growing to do list and taking more action.  It often comes from dropping into massive self acceptance and compassion by dropping our internal negative chatter, and learning to really love ourselves just as we are RIGHT NOW. There is no such thing as perfect.  You can totally release yourself from even trying to reach it from today forward.    You can accept yourself right now, as you are today.  You don’t have to make your love for yourself conditional anymore.  You are with yourself all day everyday-so the relationship you have with yourself matters. Today’s caller Tiffany is taking a huge step toward building her confidence.  So much of this came from her childhood years and her relationship with her father.  Tiffany’s father chose to give up his rights to her when she was just a child.  This caused her to buy into the belief that “Hey, if my own Dad doesn’t want me, obviously I’m not enough.”  Tiffany started to believe that she was in some way defective and that altering herself in some way (her pattern was proving), would somehow allow her to feel seen, heard and loved. When we don’t receive the love and acceptance we need as children from our childhood, it can leave wounds that run deep. But Tiffany is learning that building confidence is as much about what you stop doing rather than always what you start doing. Get curious about your life.  Look around and ask yourself…”what am I attracting into my life?” without self blame or criticism.  Only notice.  What is currently in your environment is there to serve you and teach you. Listen to my session with Tiffany as she learns to build her confidence and security in herself and her choices.

🎧{TSBA 38} Unlearning Success & Communication With Cachet Prescott
Unlearning isn't easy and takes a lot of courage in today's world.   We are taught that success is supposed to look like a certain way,  or feel a certain way  or sound a certain way.    Society is really good at telling us who we should be, how we should operate in life, and what success is supposed to look like as a woman. Because of this faulty idea of success, my guest today Cachet Prescott went on a journey to over-achieve and prove herself.   She checked every box she could in an attempt to be seen.  Cachet was in her mid thirties, feeling lost and as though she didn't have her own identity.   Cachet overly identified with her work and when her work didn’t work out-her identity was challenged.  With three degrees, she found herself in a place where she felt unhappy and unsatisfied. Our cultures glamorizes the idea of busy and achievement.  This learning of...success ONLY looks like this, can keep us stuck at breakneck speed, missing all the moments and opportunities that really matter.  It can keep us in a cycle of overwhelm, exhaustion and burn out.   Cachet Prescott is a shift talker whose superpower lies in helping others be intentional, responsible and accountable for how they show up and move in the world. A social scientist by training and a part-time faculty member in Psychology, she founded Shift Matters, a space dedicated to making shift happen: shifting thoughts, perspectives, actions, words and habits to move others from where they are to where they want to be.

🎧{TSBA 36}-The Art of Healthy Selfish-learning to prioritize YOU! PT. 1
In today's episode, we are going to unpack what it really means to become healthy-selfish.  Everyone is selfish (yes, even you). But selfishness can be either unhealthy or healthy. "Healthy selfish," as I like to call it, can be thought of also as self-love. Most of us have been taught to think selfishness is a bad quality — and it certainly can be.  But what is also NOT acceptable or  admirable is to neglect mental, emotional and physical well-being, and to live in the world with stress, resentment and a lack of joy.  It is nothing short of unacceptable to contort yourself into a pretzel-you know, when you’re trying to be all things to all people. What you'll learn from this episode: The two types of selfishness and how you can practice healthy selfish to establish real self care and keep from burning out. The dangers of people pleasing Why healthy selfish can be an integral part of your spiritual practice. The real reason why women are afraid to stop people pleasing.

🎧{TSBA 34}- Releasing energetic & emotional blocks through BreathWork with Vaughn Pierro
"Oxygen is medicine moving through the body." ~Vaughn Pierro Vaughn Pierro was brought into this world as an empathic soul.  She felt a lot of emotion, and everyone's emotion.  It was normal for Vaughn to cry at a McDonald's commercial.  Because of that, people didn't always understand her and she was made fun of.  As a result, Vaughn began to tuck parts of her away that she deemed unacceptable.  She stuffed and shoved her emotions and the very thing that was her gift. Suppressing emotion can lead to a whole slew of health problems which is exactly what Vaughn experienced.  When she found herself at a personal development retreat, she took her very first breathwork session and was blown away by what she experienced.  She felt her body, her energy, her emotions for the first time in years.   tune in this week at Vaughn and I discuss the power of the breath and how crucial and medicinal it can be to aligning with your highest self.   If you want to claim your seat in The School of Badassery, (where yes, you will receive a free 90 breathwork session with Vaughn), you can claim you spot HERE.  This month we are also discussing the topic of Mindfulness and Presence-imagine going into the holidays feeling peace and calm instead of frazzled and frenzied.  You receive access to past trainings such as expectations and boundaries.  Plus you gain access to additional tools for The Selfish Badass community only.  Join us! What you'll learn from this episode: Why breathwork is so powerful Why suppressing emotions is so dangerous. How following her energetic breadcrumbs led Vaughn down a pretty amazing journey.   How Vaughn resisted the negative voices once she claimed her dreams.   The danger as a woman of not honoring your desires.   What Vaughn's daily breath practice looks like now.

{TSBA 22}-The deep, down &dirty on Patriarchy Stress Disorder
"Talking about a traumatic experience does not resolve trauma.   These experiences are lodged in our bodies.  They are imprinted in our nervous systems.  Reactions that got wired to that event or experience. The body remembers feeling unsafe and it reminds us each time the trauma gets triggered.  The mind may create stories and explanations and rationalizations but the body never lies." ~Dr. Valerie Rein Have you ever felt like there was something wrong with you?  Have you ever asked yourself, why can I just achieve the success, happiness and fulfillment I desire? Friends, I promise you, there is NOTHING wrong with you.  However, there's a very good chance that you might be suffering from trauma and not even know it.   Dr. Valerie says that trauma is  any experience that made you feel unsafe both physically and emotionally resulting in your inability to show up as the fullest authentic expression of yourself. Okay-that definition includes every one of us!

{TSBA 14}-It's time to Spring Clean your life-Part 1
“It’s time for a spring cleaning of your thoughts, it’s time to stop to just existing it’s time to start living.” ― Steve Maraboli If you want more abundance, more freedom, more joy, more contribution, more fulfillment, more happiness, more levity, play, lightness you have to let go of the things that are taking up space in your life and causing you to hold on to your old limited way of being. Many of us hold onto our history and it’s blocking our REAL power that is within.  We make decisions based on our history instead of what our heart actually wants right now.  We carry it with us like a ball and chain. Too much stuff can fill us up and drain our energy.  But it's not just external "stuff."  Things like overcommitment, overwhelm, and spending too much time with people and things that drain us and not enough time leaning into the activities that fuel and excite us.   Listen in to this Spring Clean Your Life series to get you up and leaning into the unstoppable, extraordinary, powerful badass leader that you are.  The woman that is here to leave an impact in whatever way she is called... you don't have time to be drained by things that are no longer serving you.  We need you!  We need your voice! What you'll learn from this episode: Examine which areas of your life need a 'Spring Clean' Decide what success looks and feels like to you. Make decision as to where you want to place your time and next steps to move forward in your life.

{TSBA} 5- Celebrate all your body CAN do!
Exercise is a celebration of what you body can do-not a punishment for what you ate. -Susan Hyatt  Today we are talking about the common dreaded "I hate exercise" thought.  So often we put, "I want to lose 10 pounds"  or "workout more" on our yearly list of resolutions.  And by about this time, we start to become disconnected from that goal and drag our feet when it's time to go to the gym.  Then what happens?  We feel like failures and guilty that once again, the weight didn't come off and we didn't stick to the plan.   But here's the thing, you don’t have to settle for boring treadmill runs.  You don’t have to beat yourself up in your workouts if that’s not your style either. You can actually fall in love with exercise. In this pod we explore: How to create a 'healthy' or 'helpful' mindset around exercise that will help you crush your workouts. Why moving your body matters. How to craft out an exercise plan that you love. The best way to commit to your weekly workouts so you feel amazing.  Want to know my big secrets on how to practice RADICAL self care?  Grab my FREE guide-Why Selfish is the New Black-How to move from burned out to blissed out.   To connect with me further-you can follow me at ALL the places.

[TSBA] 2 - Why Self Care really matters (part 1)
“Self care is not selfish.  You cannot pour from an empty vessel.”- Via Self care is something that we hear a lot about in today’s world.  In our culture it’s as though we honor those who are “super busy.”  It’s like the busier we are the more important we are-the more we matter.  Women have bought into the idea that we must please, perfect and perform.  We hustle for our worth.  We struggle to celebrate our wins and we literally are walking around like empty wells, dying to be filled.  Dying for some alone time, dying for some soul nourishment, dying from exhaustion. In this week’s episode, we take a look at 6 differences between self care and selfishness.  If taking time for yourself, speaking your mind, or being proud of yourself is cloaked in guilt and fear, you must have a listen. This pod explores: Why being selfish can actually make you happier and healthier. What radical self care really is. How self care is directly related to setting boundaries. Why self care is the best way to build your confidence. Why being selfish is your best tool in your tool box to be happy and healthy. Why self care helps you show up as the BEST version of yourself.

[TSBA] 1 - Welcome to The Selfish Badass Movement
“The man who does not value herself cannot value anything or anyone.” -Ann Rand Many of us grew up buying into the idea that we are responsible for everyone else’s happiness. As we navigate into adulthood, that often looks like NOT bringing up important topics to your spouse, overlooking offensive comments from family, allowing coworkers  to walk all over you, not using your voice to share your beliefs, feeling like you can’t say no or don’t have any choices in the matter at hand or just being overwhelmed and exhausted all the damn time. We struggle to speak up and because we don’t want to appear as selfish or like we can’t get along with others. My friend, it is time to change this up.  In this week’s introductory episode, I share  a little bit about what exactly this podcast will explore and why my movement-”The Selfish Badass” matters so much in today’s world. This pod explores: What the Selfish Badass movement stands for and why it matters in today’s culture. Why it’s dangerous to be running around on “empty.” Introduction to the 6 different aspects of self care. What you can expect from tuning in to this podcast and why you don’t want to miss one single episode.
