Have you felt like you don’t belong here?

Some intense feelings of grief and existential aloneness led me to finding more of myself: my multidimensional being and a family in the star system. I have mentioned it before, but this time, it demanded a greater attention and acceptance. This time, I felt a huge loss of having left my spiritual family somewhere out there.

If this story interests you or you’re finding yourself on this journey, tune in to this unraveling of an extension of my being, another place I found belonging, resource, and freedom, how my judgments had blocked my intuition, knowing, and peace in my body.

A continuation of the Deep Mystery of Life: Embracing What Logic Cannot Explain Part 1 and Part 2.

This episode is a rerun of a previous episode on The Embody Podcast while I am on a short restorative hiatus.

This episode is about how to sort out your inner chatter and reactive patterns with Parts Work. If you’ve seen the movie Inside Out, you’ve gotten a simplified taste of how your inner world may look. With many parts of us talking and acting at different times, it’s helpful to know their motives, fears, desires, agendas, purpose, and function in your inner dynamic.

Explore and embrace the parts of yourself so you can feel clarity and deeper awareness, heal the wounded or diminished parts, know what part of yourself is acting in various situations, and lead from your Self - from aligned intention. The idea that we have everything within us to heal can be easily accessed with Voice Dialogue as we open up inner gifts, wisdom, and strengths while healing wounds within.

Enjoy guided healing experiences that will walk you through dialoguing with and embodying the parts of yourself.

Do you wish to reside in deep harmony and ease with yourself — The place of fertile ground for creative action, contentment, and self-love?

Where do you exploit or override your body’s or inner messages — what is the price you pay?

Do you push and pressure yourself to exhaustion or drain?

In this guided experience, we will restore gentleness and respect to the body and align to pleasure as an inner compass. We work with self-forgiveness for judgments on yourself — ways you’ve exploited yourself, ways you put too much pressure, feeling not enough, and overriding your body’s needs and desires.

17:49 Outro

Navigate your cravings and addictions to loosen up their intensity and bring healing in this somatic experiential. In this time of Covid19, there are many things we cannot have or do. We may be stripped to see ourselves bare in some ways.

With cravings and addictions, we have a keyhole into knowing what it is that lives under the surface that drives these actions and ways of coping. It is also the opening for more empowerment and self-love.

Food addictions and cravings, substances, activities, connections, and relationships — depending on how and from which place of ourselves we reach for these may be a dependency or a way to protect ourselves from discomfort.

Note: There’s nothing wrong with how you have adapted as your addictions may have their own wisdom, though you may want to find greater freedom and depth of self-knowing.

29:30 Outro by Candice

What does it mean to be open, transparent, and honest? When it means discovering you are polyamorous, there may be challenges and surprises that come. Dr. Terri Fernandez talks about the journey in discovering she is polyamorous at heart while being compassionate in a monogamous marriage. Her experience includes a depth of fear and hurt, as well as joys. She shares her own body reactions, partner reactions and some major losses on the journey. Also, questions about how you set up life as polyamorous especially being in a monogamous marriage and what is commitment? How can you be fully honest?

Terri and I mutually discuss past generations and pressures, what family constellations has to do with a Poly view, what life would be like if Poly were always an option, repression is a superpower, how we each discovered our own polyamorous journeys.

Clinically trained with a specialization in forensic psychology, Dr. Fernandez now works exclusively with our veterans in the Department of Veterans Affairs. Providing primarily trauma-informed, evidence-based therapies to treat PTSD, she uses her integrative theoretical orientation and certified training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help our veterans process traumatic experiences with present-moment awareness, as well as address other psychological difficulties from a non-judgmental and compassionate approach. Terri Fernandez, Psy.D. is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

Terri is a native Texan, reformed gamer, and wannabe lichenologist. She returned to her hometown of Texas (currently based in Austin) after living and training in Chicago, Kansas City MO, and Gainesville FL.

1:24:25 Outro

In this guided experiential, develop your relationship to your inner knowing and intuition — strengthen the muscles of your heart, inner attunement, and body wisdom. I lead you through a Blind Constellation of tuning into three pieces of your life so that you can clarify and fortify your relationship with your many inner messaging systems.

It’s so essential to follow what is true to you — and it feels increasingly important in times of uncertainty and unknown. It is vital to loving yourself to do what’s for you to do, and not what you feel you “should” or was part of a past plan. Alignment in the present requires trust in your body’s response system as well as understand where your capacity is in terms of what parts of this response system is disconnected or has static (trauma, unconscious or unintegrated aspects of yourself). Also, a brief exploration about fears and resistances to inner trust.

21:20 Closing With an Anecdote

How much capacity do you have to be honest about who you are today on your journey? Instead of covering up parts of yourself or polishing them to perfection or false prettiness — to move through your life honestly and to see others in their moment to moment existence, experience, and reactions as well?

I’ve often struggled with sharing myself in an honest way. Sometimes that’s my feelings or opinions, and sometimes that’s just fear of certain parts of me being exposed.

Listen in on how I feel called to be more directly and clearly myself and all the fears that come up with it. Do you have similar fears of being yourself and speaking your truth?

Identity crisis and reinvention, self-honesty and being more fully self-expressed — this is what’s happening with me now — and in my sharing to the outer world and relationships.

Also in this episode: how losing hair related to my grandfather’s loss of his parents to starvation, how it brought forward a greater sense of acceptance for my journey and who I am and my body, dependency, and attachment.
