Soul Lesson: Losing My Religion
We’re back for another Soul Lesson. If you are new to the podcast, Soul Lessons focus on the spiritual wisdom I’ve learned in my life or am currently learning. Today’s Soul Lesson is a big one - Losing My Religion. In this episode, I'm sharing my spiritual revolution - the journey from coming into this world knowing God, growing up in the Christian church, and eventually finding my own way and creating my own brand of spirituality. This lesson was created to share the importance of connecting with the spirituality that’s right for us, regardless of what society, family, or anyone else says.  It’s about inspiring you to develop a personal relationship with the magical essence inside of you and around you so that you step into your purpose and share it with the world.  Once you've listened to the podcast, come share your feedback with me! I have great news, the Soul Driven Podcast Instagram and Facebook accounts have launched and there you will find quotes and positive affirmations from previous shows.

Driven Lesson: An Overlooked Habit Required for Success
Hello, hello. I’m so pleased to have you join me for our first Driven Lesson. As a reminder, the Driven lessons focus on the wisdom I’ve learned or am currently learning with my business or clients. This week, I’m sharing a lesson focused on a topic that’s often overlooked - the importance of asking for help. And before you shake your head and consider this one conquered - hear me out. Many of us assume we can ask for help, but rarely do it. And while that doesn’t always hurt us, it definitely hinders our success in life. Today, I’ll share my own difficulty embracing this habit within my businesses (hint: I blame it on growing up in a restaurant, haha), explain why it leads to success, and provide a few tips on easing into it yourself. This episode is geared towards entrepreneurs and business owners, but there’s literally no one who couldn’t glean from this lesson. We could all do better about asking for help! Once you've listened, I want to hear from you - will you start asking for help more often now? Find me on Instagram @ahnahendrix and share on the post for today’s episode, use the hashtag #souldrivenpodcast or send me an email at souldrivenpodcast@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

Soul Lesson: I Am My Own Guiding Light
I’m so excited to share my first Soul Lesson with you! This week, I’m sharing something I just fully stepped into - I Am My Own Guiding Light. We do not need to look outside of ourselves for answers. We do not need to lean on anything in this world to make decisions, step into our power or stay safe. All we’ve ever needed and will need is inside. We are our own guiding lights. Today, I'm talking about self-sovereignty, why this is the time to embrace it and how to do it. After you've listened, I want to hear from you - what prevents you from believing in your own wisdom?

#WednesdayWisdom: Practice Compassion
This week's #WednesdayWisdom might sound fluffy, but you'll find none of that here. Today’s podcast isn’t about glazing over the intensity, isn’t about finding pink solutions to our dirty gray problems. It’s about learning to LET GO. To recognize our humanity, embrace it and share it with others. It's a very real message for a very real time. And I pray it brings you peace and contentment.  And don't forget, this is a featured podcast week, which means I’ll be sharing an additional episode this Saturday, which offers another perspective on Covid-19 and making the most of it. It's something I've been working on in my head for a few weeks and I can't wait to share it with you. Once you've listened, I want to know, how will YOU practice compassion during this time?

#WednesdayWisdom: Overcome A Scarcity Mindset
In this week's #WednesdayWisdom, I want to empower you to become equipped to overcome a scarcity mindset.  The world is coming unhinged in the midst of the Covid-19 virus and scarcity mindsets are running rampant. But this doesn't have to be you - at any point in time. You ALREADY have the power to live your best life, attract the things you want, and avoid the conditioned traps that the world seeks to put us in.  We know what it's like to live wondering where the next paycheck will come from, questioning if we'll ever meet our soulmate or if we'll ever live the life we dream of.  It's time to flip the switch.  Once you've listened to the episode, I want to know, which step to overcoming scarcity resonated most with you?
