Gaia Chinniah - Understanding your blueprint and living with purpose.

The Soul Full Lounge

Gaia Chinniah - Understanding your blueprint and living with purpose.
Gaia's story is inspiring!  When she was 33 (and hence the name of her business - Soul 33) she visited a renowned Maori Healer. The Healer told Gaia she possessed some very unique gifts that few possess, pushing her out of her comfort zone, and into her hidden destiny. Gaia experienced a very different few sessions with the healer, who made Gaia work on her, and Gaia’s unique gifts were brought into the light. "I thought I knew who I was, I was going in a direction that society had conditioned me to believe. It was through the gifted Maori Healer I was seeing at the time for traditional holistic treatments, who reminded me of my gifts that I had not recognised before. She encouraged me to trust myself and be confident that I didn’t need to intellectually analyse what I was doing. I just had to trust that I was connected to something much deeper than what I could see with my physical eyes" explains Gaia. In this podcast we chat about Gaia's podcast, which is supporting people from all over the world and how knowing our blueprint can bring about my purpose and meaning to our lives.  Get cosy and join us in the Soul Full Lounge. The Beacon by Soul 33 is available now for download on both Apple and Android devices. Search ‘Soul33’ in your App Store. Website: Facebook: Instagram:

Eve Ahern - Co-parenting, Dating and Living with Purpose
Eve has experienced heartbreak, taken big leaps of faith and been on an incredible healing journey, which has culminated in Eve owning her power and embracing her purpose.  We sit down together to discuss, where Eve is now and how she co-parents after her break up, dating and making sure she honours herself in the process.    With a wealth of knowledge and a deep connection to her Tūpuna, Mother Earth and her own healing journey, Eve's mission is to support the healthy expression of emotions and to unlock the emotional blocks within each of us. She believes that as we unlock our ability to express, we raise our consciousness and in turn raise the well being of the collective. "I am the light but I am also the darkness. My expression is a constant process of moving from the shadows to the light and back again, back and forth, lost and then found, blind and then seeing. This is what I am here to live and what I am here to guide others through" - Eve Ahern Get cosy and join us in the Soul Full Lounge x

Emma Wright - Size Doesn't Matter
When Emma was nineteen, she told her parents she had bulimia. They didn’t believe her. Or at least believe it was the life-threatening problem that it was. They told Emma she was beautiful and asked if she ‘was over all that now’ and then hardly spoke of it again. Emma's parents were great in so many ways. But they didn’t know how to speak about bodies, food and long-term health to their kids in a way where they felt positive and protected from a culture that values thinness and promotes weight-loss like it’s the panacea for every darn thing. Having now recovered Emma is giving other smart, dedicated parents the language to talk about bodies that her folks never had. Through coaching, speaking events, the 10,000 Mothers club and her workbook, Emma's helped 100’s of parents create inner narratives that support self-worth and resilience, and live a far richer life. Please note:  If you're not a parent it doesn't matter, what we speak about in this podcast can be transferred to our own mindset around our bodies. Get cosy and join us in the Soul Full Lounge, I have a feeling you're going to get loads of gems from this podcast x If you'd like to find out more about Emma and the fantastic work she does in the world, go and check her out. She offers many different options which will support you to love the skin you're in.
