Owning ALL of ME with Maggie Moore
Maggie Moore is a bodacious goddess and I am here for it! Maggie is living her best life as a visionary healer, sacred jewelry maker and Chakra Shaking creator. Certified in crystal and reiki therapies, Maggie creates a personal wellness treasure chest of self care talismans and tools for her clients to keep them grounded on their life path. Her creation, Chakra Shaking, a mind-body-spirit movement practice helps her clients find center in this crazy world. In this episode of the Feminine Rebellion podcast, Maggie and I talk about how our childhoods and traumatic experiences shape us and the opportunity we have to transcend them and be truly powerful by shedding layers and owning who we REALLY are. We also cover the differences between a medium and a channel and some of the crazy experiences she has had in this line of work. Then we take a deep dive into the amazing power of crystals! Maggie shares some “Crystals 101” knowledge and … ahem … the subject of crystal dildos may have come up. Maggie’s story gives me chills all over my body and I just know you will love her energy and spirit as much as I do. *Special offer for The Feminine Rebellion: Contact Maggie via her links below to receive the “How to Cleanse and Clear Your Crystals”  PDF for free.

The Practice of Knowing, Asking For, and Getting What You Want with Sophie Luxton
What is your relationship with desire? Do you find it difficult to ask for what you want? The seemingly simple practice of asking for what we want is RIPE with opportunities and POWER. I am so excited to take a deep dive into desire on this episode of The Feminine Rebellion podcast. This is such a juicy topic and an even JUICIER guest. Sophie Luxton is a teacher of Epic Self-Care for Women, How to Get What You Want From Your Man,  and creator of Spiritual Strip Tease. In this conversation, Sophie shares her (very relatable!) story of how she had done a lot of "empowering" work on the feminine, only to realize that the power that she wanted to experience wasn't just a feeling on the inside but it was inside relationships. Now Sophie teaches women how to ask for what they want from their men. Her work includes helping women tap into what they want, feel confident in their worthiness, become aware of how they self-sabotage in conversation, how to deal with getting "no" or hitting resistance and the art of receiving. Sophie believes that any woman with big and juicy dreams for her life needs to learn how to speak her desires into her relationships in order to make them come true. Topics we discuss: How marriage and motherhood unexpectedly fueled her spiritual work The re-education of a badass woman who chooses allegiance to herself The Spiritual Striptease and why it’s so powerful Exercises to tap into your knowing and desire How to handle being told “no” The dynamic between men and women due to conditioning and how it plays a role in asking The art of learning how to receive Our Guest 👇🏼 Sophie Luxton’s website: www.sophieluxton.com Sophie Lexton on Instagram: @juicysophieluxton https://www.instagram.com/juicysophieluxton/ Sophie Luxton’s Personal Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=710000510 Sophie Luxton’s Private Facebook Group “Epic Self Care for Women Breaking Rules”:  http://www.facebook.com/groups/escforwomenbreakingrules Important Links 👇🏼 Natalie’s Website https://www.thefemininerebellion.com/ The Feminine Rebellion 👇🏼 The Feminine Rebellion on IG: @thefemininerebellion https://www.instagram.com/thefemininerebellion/ --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thefemininerebellion/message

On Loving Our Bodies with Libby Bunten
This podcast has me fired up! Libby and I run in the same female entrepreneurial circles. So, yes...I knew her name and a little about her biz, but now I know her wildness. I saw a post on Libby’s Facebook page on July 15th. It starts with this line: “Ever feel like your body doesn’t belong?” From the very first line, there was a revolution in my heart.   And I knew I needed to have a real conversation with this brilliant soul. So, we did this thing.  And I’m sharing it with you.  🐺🐺🐺🐺 Women are taught from an early age that we are not enough as we are. So we shrink, poke and manipulate these beautiful bodies of ours. Why? Because we want to fit in. Because we believe this is the pathway to being accepted, loved, seen, valued. But, it’s bullshit, women. Total and complete bullshit. Libby states, “We are taught to compare, separate, shrink, cut-down, “package”, contort, scrutinize, disappear. This causes anxiety, depression, and isolating behaviors when lived over time. Sisterhood and celebration of ourselves EXACTLY AS WE ARE are necessary to unwind around this toxic programming.” This conversation is a brilliant one. Filled with f-bombs and real-woman talk. We get real and raw.   Grab your earphones and listen in. Libby is a highly accomplished independent consultant in the global online business world with Arbonne.  Her passion is to strengthen the lives of women in her local community and beyond.  And now...drumroll please...she is a plus-size (can we change this name please?) model for SKIN, a thoughtful and sustainable lounge wear brand, and is fiercely leading women back to fully accepting and loving all parts of themselves. And soon to hit the shelves is her book about the same topic  Release date, 2022. Topics we discuss: Learn to listening to the divine signs that are pushing you towards a life that is fucking scary and liberating. Our beautiful bodies and the wisdom and stories she holds within her tissues.. How we are subconsciously bought in to this ideal of what a woman’s body should look like.  Gross. How women experience daily micro-assaults that affect our self-image and sense of worthiness. Libby shares the visual of her  “inner-dial of self-worth”. I love this!!! You don’t have to perform a certain way? Get a certain grade, weigh a certain number…to have VALUE. How your weight is used as currency  - for love, pleasure, wearing a certain bathing suit. How sisterhood, pleasure and honoring our darkness is the path to truly loving and accepting ourselves again. How Pleasure is the path to FREDOM How YOU approving of YOUR body - is the only way out. Creating Sacred Space for your darkness in Sisterhood How your rage and grief are not bottomless and how moving your body is THE WAY to process it. How your body is not just a head carrying device How your “performance” makes you feel safer, but it’s patriarchal bullshit And...what WILD means to Libby LINKS Libby on IG Sarah Hammel-Smith Ted Talk Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth Mama Gena on IG Megan Jo Wilson on IG Tribe of Wolves on IG

Dr. Valerie Rein: From Survival to Thriving
Tribe of Wolves!!! Dr. Valerie Rein is one of my newest ignitors.  When I was introduced to her work 4 months ago, there was a revolution in my heart.   Her research reminds us that there is NOTHING WRONG WITH US. We have been living in a Patriarchal Prison that is dimming our light and keeping us small.  Listen in for some serious hits of wisdom.  Grab a cozy spot, a cup of tea and a notebook.  You'll want to take notes. In this episode we talk about: Dr. Valerie's personal story + how she came to discover Patriarchy Stress Disorder How being "comfortably numb" is a common state for most women. Big T Trauma and little T Trauma - how each further disconnects us from parts of ourselves Intergenerational Trauma - your trauma is not always your own.  You were born with much of it. Why mindset work is bullshit Why traditional talk therapy alone will not heal the root cause of your trauma The power of Community in healing.   Listen it.  It's rich and deep and delicious. ___________________ Download the first chapter of Dr. Valerie's book, Patriarchy Stress Disorder.

Mama, if you’re asking yourself: “Wait a minute, who am I?” “What do I want for my life?” “What feels good to me anymore?”  I want you to know that I see you. I feel you. I love you. And I created Love Pusher for women like you because I used to be that woman.  LOVE PUSHER is for the woman who is where I was: An overwhelmed mom who has dedicated herself to her family and has gotten to a place where she’s unsure where she lost herself. She’s unsure what happened. She doesn’t know her purpose in life anymore.  We’re bringing together women who are ready to be real, raw, and love on each other.

Why we aren’t living pleasure-filled lives
Why aren’t we living pleasure-filled lives already? What is standing in the way of us living lives that have us totally lit up and pushing more love?

On episode 5 of the Tribe of Wolves Podcast I get into the #1 reason we aren’t living pleasure-filled lives. Tune in to learn how you can begin to step into pleasure and into things that actually bring you joy.  If you want to take this lesson a step further, join us for the Pleasure & Power Challenge happening January 11 - 13, 2021.

Pleasure is how I got my power back
Hey woman,  In this episode I’m taking you back in time, back to the beginning of my journey. I’m sharing the FIRST thing I started to do that shifted things dramatically for me. 6 years back I was a numb, overwhelmed, mom of three. I had all the things I thought I wanted in my life but I still wasn’t happy. (Any of this feel familiar?) Little did I know then that I was about to dive into one of the juiciest Feminine practices of all time: PLEASURE. This gave me the juice I needed to begin to move my life in the direction of my desires.  Pleasure is how I got my power back. It’s how I learned to love myself. It’s how I dragged myself out of the doldrums and back into my life. Tune into episode four of the Tribe of Wolves podcast to learn about the small changes you can make to start using pleasure as your guide. Let’s get going. The world needs us.
