663. Why Does Finding Purpose Feel Painful? With Sara Kuburic, Millennial Therapist

You might know Sara Kuburic as the Millennial Therapist on Instagram, where she shares insanely relatable advice about navigating the human experience with her 1.6 million followers. Sara’s new book, It’s On Me, encourages us to get to know ourselves fully and take responsibility for our lives.  In this episode, Sara opens up to Krista about her struggles with panic attacks and a dissociation from her body – a deep state of suffering that eventually led her to a life of authenticity. When we ignore the signs our body sends us, we ignore the parts of ourselves that are longing to be seen, nurtured, and healed.  Sara talks us through her journey of accepting her highly sensitive nature and beginning to connect the dots between what she was feeling in her body and the parts of her life that required change. She empowers us to tune out the noise of everyday life, tune into our own beings, and ask ourselves, ‘who am I really?’ to find true peace and freedom within.  We also talk about: Why searching for purpose can be painful Healing abusive relationships with our bodies Acknowledging your suffering Authenticity vs. self loss The ups and downs of discovering yourself Why self awareness is the ultimate self care  Why we must engage with life fully Resources:  Instagram: @millennial.therapist Website: www.sara-kuburic.com Sponsors: AG1 | Try AG1 and get a FREE 1-year supply of Vitamin D3+K2 AND 5 free AG1 Travel Packs with your first purchase exclusively at drinkAG1.com/ALMOST30.

643. The HR-ification of Relationships + "Spiritual" People Dating

Get ready to laugh (and cry a little bit) during this insanely relatable conversation between Krista and her actor-director-musician BFF, Joey Pollari! Krista and Joey chat about the ways we may be overusing “therapy talk” – a.k.a. things only you and your therapist talk about – in our relationships. Instead of slapping labels on someone or going overboard with “honest feedback,” sometimes it’s best to lead with how we’re actually feeling.  Krista and Joey recount stories of their own shortcomings in relationships as well as how they’ve grown in their self-awareness and communication skills. At the end of the day, therapy is one of our greatest tools for evolution, but learning how to integrate what we do in therapy with our real-time interactions is the ultimate relationship game changer! We also talk about: Why birthdays are triggering  Giving loving feedback in relationship The HR-ification of relationships Boundaries vs. walls “Spiritual” people on dating apps  Forgiveness + accepting people The power of stating your emotions Why labels aren’t effective tools for healing Raising the bar in dating  The myth of being “special”  Going after your creative dreams  Resources:  Youtube: @joey_pollari   Instagram: @joeypollari   Twitter: joeypollari   Music: linktr.ee/joeypollari   Sponsors: Seed | Visit seed.com/ALMOST30 and use code ALMOST30 to redeem 30% off your first month of Seed's DS-01® Daily Synbiotic.  Jenni Kayne | Find your forever pieces at jennikayne.com and get 15% off your first order when you use code ALMOST30 at checkout.  Dreamland | Go to dreamlandbabyco.com and enter code ALMOST30 at checkout to receive 20% off sitewide + free shipping.  Dose | Get 15% off your first order, plus an additional 15% off if you subscribe for a monthly delivery!

634. The Part of Your Body That You're Overlooking: The Pelvic Floor + It's Power

Do kegels actually work? Is painful sex normal? How can breathing help alleviate pelvic tension and pain? In this episode, we go there and answer all of your burning questions with Dr. Sonia Bahlani, who is an expert in the fields of gynecology and urology―sought purposefully because she was interested in helping patients with pelvic pain.  In her efforts to bring the topics of pelvic pain and women’s sexual health out from behind closed doors and find real, proven solutions for those in pain, Dr. Bahlani joins Lindsey to discuss the key to feeling good “down there,” starting with what exactly is your pelvic floor. She provides valuable insight on what might be causing your pain, what you can expect in a doctor’s office and what to do at home. So much of women’s sexual health remains unexplored, leaving us to wonder and question if specific experiences are normal…but no more. We’re deeply grateful to welcome Dr. Bahlani to the show to unpack the many misconceptions about this important topic.  We also talk about: What is your pelvic floor How to connect with your pelvic floor The relationship between your jaw + pelvic floor Pain during sex: Why it’s happening + what to do  The importance of pleasurable sex + foreplay Women’s healthcare in the U.S. Everyday habits to support your pelvic floor Understanding your urination habits The truth about kegels  Side effects of birth control Resources:  Instagram: @pelvicpaindoc TikTok: @pelvicpaindoc Website: pelvicpaindoc.com Book: Dr. Sonia's Guide to Navigating Pelvic Pain Sponsors: Hatch | Hatch is offering $20 off your purchase of a Hatch Restore 2 and free shipping at hatch.co/almost30.  AG1 | Go to drinkAG1.com/ALMOST30 and get a FREE 1-year supply of vitamin D + 5 free AG1 travel packs with your first purchase.

616. Body and Relationship Realness with Tinx (Part 2)

Welcome back to part two of Krista’s conversation with Tinx, a lifestyle creator, advice expert, podcast host and author of The Shift: Change your Perspective, Not Yourself. In this episode, Krista and Tinx talk about what it means to date in today’s day and age.  The true meaning of a relationship isn’t to get married, but to go on a self-discovery journey. As Tinx puts it, “To get your heart broken is to live.” Plus, the two share a vulnerable conversation on their struggles with body image, why they feel like the topic is taboo, and a new approach the collective should consider when thinking about food + self-image.  We also talk about: Purgatory vs. the breakup  Heartbreak antibodies Generational differences on dating What is the box theory Scarcity mindset in relationships Trolls on the internet  Tinx’s body image journey  The media, diet culture + fads  Resources:  The Shift: Change Your Perspective, Not Yourself is available now at www.theshift-book.com Instagram: @tinx  TikTok: @tinx Sponsors: Botanic Tonics | Use code ALMOST30 for $40 off your first purchase.  JS Health | Go to us.jshealthvitamins.com/a30 and use code ALMOST30 at checkout for 20% off your purchase.

614. How to Both Accept Yourself and Change Yourself

Does self acceptance mean no self-improvement? When do we lean into self-development practices and when do we just accept ourselves as we are? In this solo episode, Krista shares tangible steps on how to balance self-love + self-improvement because—spoiler—the two ways of being can co-exist.  When you love yourself, there’s a vibrancy to your energy that supports you to live a productive life, i.e., you might give back to your community, spend your free time in nature or leave an impact on your family and friends.  The idea that we need to control or manage who we are, so that we don’t overeat, spend an excess amount of time on our phones or stay in our homes for days on end is interesting to think about and a topic Krista doesn’t hold back on.  We also talk about: The spiritual ego  Mindful eating + being present What it means to be in control Befriending the manager part of us How to be self-accepting  Scheduling in time for complacency Celebrating through the process Understanding perfectionist tendencies Being mindful of self-loathing or hate Resources:  Instagram: @itskrista Website: itskrista.co True Essence Retreat | A 4 night, 5 day transformational women’s retreat in Ibiza, Spain from October 4-8, 2023.

612. Love Yourself More, Fix Yourself Less with Danielle LaPorte

In Oprah Winfrey’s words, Danielle LaPorte “is uniquely connecting the world together with a spiritual energy that matters,” and here at Almost 30, we couldn’t agree more.  We’re so grateful to welcome Danielle back on the show. In this episode, Krista + Danielle, talk about the true meaning of spirituality and concepts of her recently published book, How to Be Loving…when your heart is breaking open and the world is waking up.  Danielle believes that we should focus less on fixing ourselves because when we focus on living from our heart center, anything that’s not in alignment with that Light falls away. Get ready for a nuanced perspective on the life changing power of self compassion, shadow work and being more receptive to higher guidance. We also talk about: Unwounded parts of self Taking breaks in life  Having spiritual seasons Striving for success + self acceptance  The universe + selfishness  Desire + aversion  Living from your heart  Manifesting with intention Defining the law of attraction Resources:  Website: daniellelaporte.com Instagram: @daniellelaporte Twitter: @daniellelaporte Book: How To Be Loving Sponsors: Babbel | Get 55% off your Babbel subscription at babbel.com/ALMOST30.

In this solo episode, Krista talks about how relationship (whether friendship, romantic or familial) breakups and endings can provide you with an opportunity to grow and be who you really are, as well as reclaim the parts of you that have been lost and step into more magnetism and truth.  Recently, she vulnerably shared about the ending of her 10-year partnership and in this episode, she dives into conscious uncoupling.

597. The Origins of You: Understand the Root of Your Wounds + Behavior

It’s no surprise to the Almost 30 community that your childhood trauma and wounds can shape your adult life. Vienna Pharaon knows this all too well. A licensed marriage and family therapist, and one of New York City’s most sought-after relationship therapists, she has practiced therapy for more than fifteen years and is the founder and owner of the group practice Mindful Marriage and Family Therapy.  Today, she joins Krista on the show to discuss her first book, The Origins of You. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been in therapy for decades, or if therapy just isn’t for you. It doesn’t matter if you have countless memories from childhood, or none at all. All that matters is having a willingness to look inside, dig deep, and commit to building the life you want.  In this episode, Krista and Vienna discuss how to fully understand the family dynamics and dysfunctions that created what she calls “origin wounds,” as well as the practical work needed to heal our wounds and leave behind the limiting beliefs and behaviors that don’t serve us. We also talk about: Why the “firsts” in your life are important Understanding your family patterns  Remembering your childhood wounds  Fear about recalling the past  What it means to be hypervigilant Living in victim mentality + avoiding healing How there will always be a need to heal + grow  Examples of people unpacking their wounds Resources: Instagram: @mindfulmft    Facebook: Mindful Marriage and Family Therapy Book: The Origins of You Sponsors: Vive Organic | Visit viveorganic.com and use code ALMOST30 at checkout for 15% off your first product.

Are you jealous of something or someone? What scares you? Where do you see friction in your life? As dreams grow, fears do too. Few know this as well as Mel Robbins. A New York Times Bestselling author and self-publishing phenom, Mel’s work includes The High 5 Habit, The 5 Second Rule, and The Mel Robbins Podcast.

588. There Are No Bad Parts of You: Accepting Yourself with IFS

Is there just one “you”? We have been taught that we have a single identity, but when the voices inside our heads don’t match our own self perception, emotions heighten and we might even question our entire existence. Want to know a little secret? You’re not alone in feeling this way, but feel liberated in knowing that there are no “bad” parts of you.  Dr. Richard Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has been transforming psychology for decades and we are honored to have him on the show to talk about his new book “No Bad Parts.” In this episode, you’ll learn what IFS is and why it has been so effective in areas such as trauma recovery.  You’ll also hear role play with both K+L, as Dr. Schwartz walks them through uncovering their own abandoned parts. When we learn to love all of our parts, we can learn to love all people, and ultimately this can help heal ourselves and the world.  We also talk about: What is the Internal Family System model?  The importance of honoring and communicating with our parts Making often maligned parts into powerful allies How IFS reveals that there are no bad parts K+L on their abandoned parts  Psychedelics and IFS  The power of your “protector” part   Resources: Website: www.ifs-institute.com  Instagram: @internalfamilysystems   Facebook: @InternalFamilySystems  Twitter: @IFS_Model  LinkedIn: IFS Institute  No Bad Parts The Evolution of The Internal Family Systems Model  The Larger Self   Books: Internal Family Systems: Skills Training Manual Many Minds, One Self You Are The One You've Been Waiting For The Mosaic Mind Internal Family Systems Therapy - 2nd Edition Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model Level 1 Bundle: Internal Family Systems Therapy - 2nd Edition, Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model, Mosaic Mind   Sponsors: Analemma Water | Try Analemma water at coherent-water.com and use code ALMOST30 for 15% off.  IQ Bar | Get 20% off all IQBar products, plus get FREE shipping.

587. Hypocrisy of Wokeness and Corporate America's Social Justice Scam

Vivek Ramaswamy is a New York Times bestselling author and a successful entrepreneur, who joins Krista on the podcast to discuss the importance of diversity of thought. A first-generation American, he has founded multibillion-dollar enterprises, led a biotech company as a CEO and studied at Ivy League universities.  Now, in his latest book, Woke Inc., he takes us behind the scenes into corporate boardrooms, five-star conferences, university classrooms and more, to reveal the industrial complex that has divided us as a society. In this episode, Vivek and Krista discuss how America’s elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. Vivek not only rips back the curtain on the new corporatist agenda, but also offers a way forward—exploring what it means to be an American today.  We also talk about: What makes a healthy democratic society The importance of diversity of thought Why society latches onto organizing principles  The negative impacts of cancel culture and “wokeness” Racism in the United States today The hypocrisy of corporations  Resources: Twitter:  @VivekGRamaswamy Facebook: Vivek Ramaswamy Instagram: vivekgramaswamy Book:  Woke, Inc.  Related Content: Listen to Episode 413.

586. How to Know and When to Let Go

In this solo episode, Krista opens her heart for a deeply personal and vulnerable conversation about how to know and when to let go. In a society obsessed with adding more into our lives via to-do lists, courses, books, posts, etc., we hardly ever stop to think about what we can release.  Krista has found that when she let go of relationships, careers, friendships and parts of herself that were no longer aligned, she experienced greater expansion, growth and ultimately, love. In order to create a life you love, you have to create space—and that’s what this episode is all about.  To put it simply, you cannot open the door to the future you seek while holding onto your past…and when love no longer helps us to be the person we want to be, it’s time to let go.  We also talk about: Why we over consume to protect ourselves Letting go of relationships and careers What is the Life Edit program How to create space to receive clarity  The pain of leaving people behind  Following your heart and soul  Consciously uncoupling  The importance of choosing again and again  Recognizing pain as a portal towards growth  Creating the future you seek Seeing forgiveness as freedom  Empowering yourself to take action  Resources: Instagram: @itskrista The Life Edit program   Sponsors: Seed | Visit seed.com/ALMOST30 and use code ALMOST30 to redeem 20% off your first month of Seed's DS-01® Daily Synbiotic.  IQ Bar | Get 20% off all IQBAR products.

585. Toxic Positivity: How It's Holding You Back From Processing Emotions and Connecting Authentically

Do you ever feel like you’re constantly being told to be positive? Whether its through mantras like “good vibes only” and “look on the brightside,” not to mention the endless inspirational quotes and often well intended advice (both online and off), it can feel like silencing our emotions is the only way to live a “happy life.” Whitney Goodman is a radically honest psychotherapist, whose new book, Toxic Positivity: Keeping It Real In A World Obsessed With Being Happy, shows readers how to shift the goal from being happy to being authentic in order to live fully. A millennial on a quest to make mental health information accessible and easy to understand, Whitney helps people who want to improve their relationships and emotional wellness. In this episode, Lindsey and Whitney unpack how damaging toxic positivity can be to both ourselves and our relationships. She also provides us with tangible tools on how to work through and process difficult emotions to experience a more fulfilled and authentic life.  We also talk about: What is toxic positivity  How to hold space for yourself and others  Developing a solid foundation in your relationships  Feeling connected to your body Recognizing and preventing burn out  Unpacking your lifestyle and your systems  Why humans resist loneliness and change Releasing the need to control your emotions Resources: Read: Toxic Positivity: Keeping It Real in a World Obsessed with Being Happy Instagram: @sitwithwhit Sponsors: Osea | Head to oseamalibu.com and use code ALMOST30 for 10% off.  Issuu | Get started with Issuu today for FREE or sign up for an annual premium account and get 50% off when you go to issuu.com/podcast and use promo code ALMOST30.

584. Navigating Grief, Letting Go of Identities and Living Fully with Bozoma Saint John

The iconic business leader, Bozoma Saint John, comes on the show to discuss her latest venture—her memoir, The Urgent Life. She takes readers through the numbing days of multiple griefs and the courage which these sparked in her to live a life in accordance with her values. K+L have a meaningful, vulnerable conversation that, despites its heavy topics, still features a lot of laughter (one of the many reasons they love Bozoma).  In this episode, the girls dive deep into why Bozoma decided to live life urgently. Her life has been encompassed by many highs and lows, one of which was the death of her husband, Peter. No stranger to adversity, Bozoma recounts life’s tragedies and how she learned to build a remarkable life worth living (even in her brokenness).  Bozoma’s story is heartbreakingly beautiful, though many of its themes are not uncommon. Our hope is this conversation will inspire any listener who has loved, mourned and is finding their way forward, to live life to the fullest.  We also talk about: Being a Black woman in corporate America Embracing her identity unapologetically  Knowing when to make a career change  Wrestling with the ego and learning to let go of identities  Trusting the Soul to light the path forward  Dealing with the loss of her husband and daughter  Navigating and carrying two different types of grief  How grief shifted her perspective on life and self  The challenges of motherhood and pursuing a career  Giving her daughter an empowered voice within the house Defining urgency (Hint: it’s about intention!)

583. How to Find, Cultivate and Keep Real Love with Jay Shetty

We are so thrilled to welcome back to the show, Jay Shetty, #1 New York Times bestselling author, award-winning storyteller, podcast host, and former monk, dedicated to helping people train their mind for peace and purpose every day. He recently released his second book, “8 Rules of Love: How to Find It, Keep It, and Let It Go.”  The truth is, nobody sits down and teaches us love—how to give and fully receive it. Oftentimes, our idea of romance is based on pop culture or movies, but love is nuanced and should be cherished and cultivated. All too often, people feel lonely (even when in a relationship) and lack the fundamental tools needed to make their partnerships last.  That’s why in this episode, Jay and Krista go deep and talk about specific, actionable steps to help you develop the skills to practice and nurture love, so that you can better love yourself, others and the world around you.  We also talk about: Why many people feel lonely in relationship  Cultural expectations of love  How social media and pop culture have perpetuated a false sense of love  The difference between solitude and loneliness  What love is not (Hint: attraction, attention seeking, validation and control)  Defining love through three main components How to grow with your partner (even if you’re growing at a different pace) The varying roles in a relationship—”fixer,” “dependent,” and “supporter” Jay’s second book, 8 Rules of Love is available for purchase at 8RulesofLove.com and wherever books are sold!

582. The Energetics of Distraction and How to Reclaim Your Focus

Join Lindsey for this honest and revealing solo journey into the energetics of distraction and focus. Recently back from an Instagram hiatus, she’s observed some pretty stark truths about her own behavior, and shares how she’s using those lessons to discover a truer, deeper sense of self. But make no mistake. There is no right and wrong at play today. Your distractions are not faults to fix; they are merely reactions we may seek to further understand.  We’re not blaming the phone. We’re not blaming the gym, or social media, or even other people. We’re getting curious about why we do the things we do – replacing the noise of guilt and shame with the stillness and quiet of focus.   We also talk about: Finding compassion for self  Looking back at her single season  Reasons we lean into distractions How can distraction serve us Examples of distraction  Getting curious with your own behavior  Energetics of distraction Reclaiming your focus  Practices for getting curious  Resources: Group Program: Sacredness of Being Single Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups To advertise on our podcast, please reach out to [email protected] or visit https://www.advertisecast.com/Almost30.

578. Transform Your Water, Transform Your Life: The How and Why of Coherent H2O

Here on Almost 30, we like to talk about spirituality, health, and wellness – and this fascinating conversation marries all three subjects in a way that we know you'll love. K+L chat with Mario Brainovic of Analemma, a cosmically inspired technology company that’s on a mission to infuse consciousness (back) into all of the world’s water. We’re welcoming in some new and inspiring ideas for this one, as we do a dive deep on the research, the science, and the significance of structured water. In short, the new information presented in this conversation will change how you see and interact with water forever. Don’t worry – it all makes perfect sense as soon as we get into it.  It’s a concept Mario has been developing for fifteen years, but one that’s still brand new on the scene in terms of awareness and understanding. We’re excited for you all to hear the studies that they've done with people, and with plants, that prove how structured water affects your light body, as well as your ability to grow, thrive and be vibrant. In addition to the technology, we talk a lot about the state of water today, access to structured water around the world, and what Mario sees as the future of water – and life as we know it.

Your brain changes when you're on birth control, that’s just the reality of it.

570. Twerking As a Tool for Liberation, Social Media and The Matrix with Sahara Rose

The holiday time is beautiful, and powerful, and magical – and so fucking stressful and confronting. It’s important that we take some time to track spiritual progress with some introspective time alone or with a friend to push and challenge the conversation. In this one, Krista is joined by Sahara Rose to reflect on their spiritual growth, dream about what’s to come, diagnose the great ills of the world, and align their energies to addressing them for the collective – and for themselves.  They go into the Matrix for a preview of the future, parse social media’s place in the development of our brains (and species), and make a declarative stand on twerking as a beautiful and ancestral  form of female empowerment and sexual power!

569. Finding Everything in Nothing: Darkness Retreat Recap

As you know by now, Krista is someone who loves to push the limits of what’s possible, to expand her own lived experience and learn new ways of seeing or thinking about things. She travels this path (mostly) unafraid and open-minded. But the prospect of a darkness retreat, she admits, was a scary one. In this special solo episode, Krista recaps her three-day, four-night darkness retreat at Sky Cave Retreats in Oregon and recounts the deep spiritual and emotional lessons she’s taken away from it.  There was rage, sadness, and grief; great joy and hours of bodywork; daily peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – and of course, complete and utter darkness. You don’t want to miss this. We also talk about: What is a darkness retreat?

Drop in for this mind-expanding conversation between Krista and Scott Berman, of Sky Cave Retreats in Oregon, to learn all about the hidden power of the dark, its ancestral lineage in healing and spirituality, and the life-changing practice of darkness retreats – an experience Krista takes in for herself soon after this interview and one which will be discussed in the next episode of Almost 30, later this week. Scott is well versed in this mystic field, having spent extensive time in solitude, silence, and of course – in the dark as a means to soften into his own existence and understand the world’s collective song. He shares a few eye-opening stories from recent participants, explains some of the neurology behind darkness and how it affects our brain, and sets our expectations for darkness retreats – by removing them completely.  We also talk about: Why would someone do a Darkness retreat?

Nicole is incredibly transformational in her work and with her words. We always love having her on and talking to her about the importance of doing the work, about all of these therapy-related topics that have really changed our lives over the years.

564. This Is Your Brain on Food: Connecting Mental Health & Nutrition with Dr. Uma Naidoo

Our guest today is the brilliant Uma Naidoo, MD, a Harvard board-certified psychiatrist, professional chef, author, and nutrition specialist. Dr. Uma's book is called This is Your Brain on Food. It's a full guide to the surprising foods that fight things like depression, PTSD, ADHD, anxiety, OCD, and more.  We go super cutting edge in this one as we talk about the undeniable relationship between our mental health and diet/nutrition. We start with her own health journey and integrated practice before getting honest with a few familiar faces in our cupboards at home – coffee, alcohol, sugar, seed oils, etc. – myth busting and truth telling on what’s good, and what isn’t, for our mental wellbeing. We all know the difference between feeling good after eating good, and feeling bad after eating poorly. Listen in to get the science on why that happens, and how we can design our diets (not restrict them) to unlock our best selves.  We also talk about: Relatively new field of nutritional psychiatry  A lesson from a patient  Uma’s cancer diagnosis and treatment Precision-based integrated nutrition  Connection between mental health and food Toxicity of a leaky gut (and fixing it) The brain chemistry of stress and sugar Fast food and marketing messages The serotonin hypothesis Pros and cons of coffee Nutrition in schools, then and now Gaps in the current medical system  Eat the rainbow  Resources: Read: This Is Your Brain on Food Website: umanaidoomd.com Instagram: @drumanaidoo Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

563. What Are You Using To Build Boundaries – Love or Fear?

Are you building healthy boundaries, or putting up restricting walls? With the former taking center stage amongst the collective, it’s an important question to ask.  This episode was inspired by the journey Krista’s been on to have deep and real intimacy in her relationships – a growing desire to untangle defensive mechanisms that create negative static between people and move toward a more heart-centered exchange with the people in and around her life.  The truth is that some forms of boundary building have evolved into a method for gaslighting ourselves, a means to create a cozy victimhood to hide away in, an excuse for closing ourselves off from things, situations, or people that may expand us. We also talk about: A different angle of boundary building  What boundaries are meant to be Honesty and open heartedness Building walls makes a victim  How to receive a boundary The need for control Wall building instance from Krista’s life Good friction between two people Bad examples from The Hills Leaning into love and connectedness Resources: Read: Conscious Loving by Gay and Katie Hendricks Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

Earlier this week on the podcast, K+L spoke with Lee Harris, renowned channel and author of Conversations with The Z's. With luck, and maybe some divine intervention, Lee received a second download – a message from The Z’s urging him to channel, live, here on the show.  This episode, part two of our conversation, presents his channeling of The Z’s in full – a very special honor and one we’re so thrilled to share with you today.  Expecting and prompting them for a general message to the collective, K+L are surprised with an intimate and intuitive perspective on their own relationship (and relationships) past, present, and future. As specific as some of their observations are, The Z’s share paradigm-breaking lessons which ring true for all of us. We also talk about: The Z’s address K+L Poking and stoking the fire Grounding the energy Extraordinary sisterhood  A message to the collective  Symbology of the number 30 Resonance of community Influence of the collective Healing the divine feminine The love shared between K+L Resources: Read: Conversations with The Z's: The Energetics of the New Human Soul - Part 1 YouTube: Lee Harris Energy Instagram: @leeharrisenergy Twitter: @leeharrisenergy Facebook: Lee Harris Read: The Hermetica: The Lost Wisdom of the Pharaohs Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

548. How an Empath Can Take Their Power Back and Fulfill Their Purpose

In today’s solo episode, Krista drops in for part two of her deep dive on empathy, codependency, and enmeshment to break down their similarities and importance differences. Who are you, really?

542. Unlocking True Enlightenment (There Are Levels to This Shit) with Peter Crone

Peter Crone is a modern-day thought leader who’s unafraid to speak, and live, his truth. He joins Krista today for a deeply expansive and thought provoking episode where they untangle the complexities of the masculine/feminine dynamic, both in an ideal (Nirvana-state, as he describes it) and in the strained environment of our current reality. He’s the kind of person who elicits a feeling of hope for all of us, that what pains us or challenges us may, not only be washed away in an instant, but be repurposed as fuel for further evolution, for allowing us to unlock the next plane of consciousness and enlightenment.  It all sounds so easy, and at times, so hard. But he reminds us of the deep beauty contained in the process itself. The elevation of this conversation sheds light on many perspectives that we overlook in our day-to-day lives, perspectives that determine our being and who we will, or can, become. Settle in for a deep one, family. We also talk about: Presence is beauty  How words affect us reveals how we really feel Identifying a victim mindset Frequency precedes form Criticism vs. encouragement   The mechanism of lying The potential in masculinity  Being willing to think, and live, differently Resources: Instagram: @petercrone Linkedin: The Mind Architect YouTube: Peter Crone Facebook: Peter Crone The Mind Architect Mastermind: Free Your Mind Website: petercrone.com Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

541. Reclaiming Our Feminine Super Powers and Learning to Receive Unconditional Love with Vylana Marcus

Vylana Marcus is on a mission to share the divine process of healing and evolution, of continual death and rebirth, that she’s experienced since 2020. She drops in for this juicy (and honest) conversation on the true meaning of shadow work, healing the complicated sister wound, her high-vibe soul partnership with Aubrey, and so much more. Channeled through Vylana’s clarity and courage, we’re invited into taboo subjects like anger, even rage – sex and intimacy, such as the God energy of the orgasm. Oh yeah, we’re going there. She describes how all of these lessons have culminated in a recently recorded album (and visual production) that's been her life’s work, Goddess Rising. She beams as the artworks being a beacon of healing and community for – well, people like you, in like-minded, spiritually empowered, and curious communities like this. We also talk about: Who was Vylana before this Dharmic path?

540. How to Thrive as an Empath: Understand The Shadow Side and Your Gifts

Empaths of the world – you may have seen, or felt, this one coming. Krista’s been open and expressive about her ongoing journey of exploring the oceanic depths of her ability to sense, to feel, and to absorb the emotions and energies around her, so it’s only right that we sit down as a community to unpack what she’s learned. The truth is that empathy means deeply caring for everyone and everything, but the answer in maintaining, even thriving, amidst all of that input is to focus on self. Self-care and energetic cleansing are great for the empathic souls within all of us.

537. Friendship Breakups: How to Deal + How to Heal

It’s a touchy topic that’s been in the zeitgeist for the last couple of years – either spurred by our general societal upheaval and the change it’s bringing about within people, something less, or something even more – friend break ups are sometimes a part of life. And they can be even more painful than breaking things off in a romantic relationship. There’s often more time invested and thus, more depth. More experience and trust. K+L drop in for today’s solo episode to discuss this very thing. When do you know it’s time to break up with a friend? What are the signs, both within yourself and between the two of you, that might be clues that something is off? And, most importantly, how do you talk about it with them? Or, do you at all? We can all agree at this point in our evolution that toxicity and rudeness are not the answers. So, how do we approach this change with grace? With compassion and understanding? Tune in to get real life advice from these two open hearts. We also talk about: How do you know when it's time to break up with a friend? Listening to your body’s clues Having a conversation vs. letting it dissolve  What might cause a friendship breakup?

533. Exploring the Feminine Experience and its Relationship to Capitalism, Feminism, and Burnout

We are completely burning ourselves out – full stop.  In this stream-of-consciousness solo episode, Krista delves into her perceptions of our current reality, specifically, that related to the deepening bond between capitalism and modern feminism.  What does it mean to be a feminist in 2022? Or, more importantly, what are we being told that it means? How has a grinding life of hustling and climbing the corporate ladder become so much more heavily favored over a loving, soft, nurturing life at home raising a family? There’s got to be room for all shades of the feminine palette. Krista opens the door to a wider experience, for a more inclusive ideology that, instead of shaming or shutting people out, makes space for respect, freedom, and happiness for all of the many manifestations of our time here on earth. We also talk about: The connections between modern feminism + capitalism  Harmful social norms + where they came from Reclaiming words that were taken from us Giving up the negative baggage  Living in true freedom + choice Embracing all parts of us as divine  Sponsors: Get discount codes sent directly to your phone.

Conscious relationship... It's one of the most common buzzwords that's in the relational space right now. It can bring up confusion, angst, and other complicated emotions we don’t want to be spending too much time in. So, what is it? And how can we practice it, or be ready for it, when the time comes? In this episode, Lindsey walks us through what she thought a relationship should be before finding Sean, what she assumed a conscious relationship would be, and the truth of what living in this aligned mutual practice actually looks and feels like.

527. The Business of Birth Control with Ricki Lake & Abby Epstein

Ricki Lake and her longtime business partner and filmmaker, Abby Epstein, join the show today to talk about their groundbreaking new documentary film, The Business of Birth Control – a truth finding journey where they tell the impactful stories of women who’ve had a whole range of experiences on, and coming off of, hormonal contraceptives. As we’ve seen and heard in past episodes on this subject, this community has a very direct connection to the modern birth control story. Until very recently, our knowledge had been strictly experiential. Now, with documentaries like this and other dedicated research, we’re learning more about what these drugs do in our bodies, and to our minds. It’s critically important work, and so important for all women, especially young girls, to know and understand. From June 22nd to 26th, The Business of Birth Control will be available to watch for FREE in the USA and Canada! You can grab your ticket here. And for those who miss the free streaming event, you can use the code "Almost30" for 50% off by clicking here. We encourage you to share this one with a friend or family member to, as Ricki mentions, pay it forward and empower the next generation with information they can act upon for their best interests.

526. Can You Be Addicted to Self Help? Dr. Thema Bryant Explains!

Drop in and open your heart for this warm hug of an episode as the amazing author and psychologist, Dr. Thema Bryant, walks us through the most relatable and actionable self-help practices you’ll ever come across. K + L get personal with their own experiences and lessons from therapy during this truthful, energetic, and enlightening episode.  Dr. Thema helps us unpack the impact of social media on our sense of self, explaining the nuance to how and why narcissism seems (it actually isn’t!) so apparent in the space. We also learn how the most outward and seemingly self-promotional actions can actually be manifestations of shame, fear, and guilt – and how to understand that dynamic in yourself and in others. How to live more authentically, foster more meaningful relationships, avoid the pitfalls of self-erasure, and process the endless wave of Insta therapy – you don’t want to miss it. We also talk about: Unpacking nuggets of information for what they mean to you K + L share therapy experiences  Self-erasure and how we trick ourselves into it  Reintroducing yourself – as yourself  Learning love languages Showing love during times of conflict  Is everyone a narcissist?

524. The Gift of Being in a Body + How To Tune In

It is what it is, right? But, that’s not a mindset that comes easily – or quickly. For many of us, our teens and twenties are filled with changing – wanting to change, feeling pressures to change. After thirty, and after doing the work, a shift starts to happen. We look in the mirror and wink at ourselves instead of wishing for something to be different.  Lindsey sits down for this deeply personal solo episode to walk listeners through her own body attunement journey, from watching herself in home movies as a wiggling four year-old, to learned familial beliefs on body, her (sometimes toxic) relationship with fitness, and unpacking early sexual encounters.  Everything is on the table, because everything in life is connected to our physical self.   Tune in and take note to start feeling better in your body, more harmonized in the feminine, restorative, juicy goodness that is this physical vehicle, on this planet. It’s a beautiful thing, and when we can truly celebrate it, it shines through in the rest of our lives. We also talk about: Everything is everything What is body attunement to me? Reprogramming negative familial beliefs  Being aware of how social media makes us feel Unpacking impactful sexual experiences  How we process outside information Identifying areas where we can be more attuned with our body Considering our cycles as the seasons Infusing your food with intention Resources:  Use keywords, titles, proper nouns, etc., to describe each third-party resource READ: “Tantra: The Supreme Understanding” by Osho Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

523. Free Yourself With 4 Questions with Byron Katie

Byron Katie is known around the world as an author and a thought leader among thought leaders, a voice so clear and yet so intellectually complex that you might find yourself replaying this episode once or twice to grasp the beautiful concept of radical inquiry that she presents in her work.  Calling her process “The Work,” she invites readers (and listeners!) to ask four questions of themselves in times of angst, challenge, or overthinking: Is it true? Can you absolutely know it's true? How do you react when you believe that thought? Who would you be without the thought? It seems simple enough. But, sit with even the first question, truly – and you'll realize we’re headed down a path of the divine, but unknown.  Weaving metaphors and vivid imagery like an artist, Byron Katie takes K+L on a spiritual journey, starting with a morning walk, where the only thing bigger than the ideas are the questions. You’re invited to open your mind and let it all (nothing) wash over you. We also talk about: The importance and beauty of a morning walk Her spiritual awakening journey The 4 questions from Loving What Is  How to become an observer of our thoughts How everyone in the world is our teacher Taking radical responsibility  How to work on our stories related to body image, relationships, and fear How to deal with pain and suffering in the world aka how to approach reality  Get discount codes sent directly to your phone.

522. Use This Method for a Better Relationship with Your Body

Do you ever feel like there are a few different versions of yourself that come out during certain situations? In some recent therapy work, Krista has learned that… well, maybe there are.  In this episode, she takes Almost 30 nation into her personal therapy journey, unpacking her self-leadership work using the Internal Family System (IFS) method to identify, observe, respect, and understand the distinct parts of her being that protect and project less-than-ideal behavior, especially as it relates to her body acceptance. We meet the Manager, the Firefighter, and the Exile. But, no parts of us are bad. This is an important caveat to remember. Meeting and understanding these different forces within us is what helps us observe our lives and environments for ways we may encourage, or discourage, their appearances in place of Self, our highest and most pure form. This one goes deep, and invites us to look within ourselves for a different perspective, or two, on who we are, and why. Enjoy. We also talk about: Check ins on projects and processing long creative gestation periods Krista shares her body acceptance journey Introducing Internal Family Systems (IFS) method The manager, keeping you busy, productive, and distracted  The firefighter, doing whatever it takes to bring you to equilibrium Exiles, forgotten and missing parts of your past and present Understanding and acknowledging their roles  Feeling their love and working in unison with Self Resources:  Use keywords, titles, proper nouns, etc., to describe each third-party resource Learn more about Internal Family Systems (IFS) Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

521. Rich Roll Makes His Process Public: Purpose, Sobriety and Partnership

Rich Roll is an inspiration, both in the general sense and in a very specific way. Believe it or not, his podcast played a big part in K+L launching Almost 30. After years of struggling with alcohol and drug addiction, Rich turned his life around to become an award-winning ultra endurance athlete, vegan advocate, best-selling author, and host of the incredible Rich Roll Podcast. You may have heard his story before, but this conversation pushes him to go a little deeper on some less-explored details. Rich goes into his personal journey including his marriage with Julie and their financial collapse, alcoholism as it relates to the sober-curious movement, finding purpose and what that means, and picking apart the 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous as it relates to a spiritual experience.  It’s a super dynamic conversation with someone who’s accomplished so much in life. You won’t want to miss it.

520. Sexuality: Coming Home to Your Body and Womb

Focusing on our own personal growth and expansion can so often shift the focus onto external goals, routines, and mindsets—but we can’t forget about the body. A big part of that is our sexuality, whether it’s relating to our own body or our partners. Sex is a powerful energetic force, so how can we get to a place where we are approaching it from a spiritual, elevated place? Tiffany Janay is a sought after motivational speaker, sacred sexuality educator, women's empowerment guide, and the owner of YoniEggs.com. She's made a career of connecting on a personal level with people, assisting them in getting past their fears, hurt, and anxiety as it pertains to their sexuality through her work as a womb wellness advocate and sacred sexuality guide.  We dive into the powerful spiritual connection to the womb, how it relates to the ability to create, and practices to honor the womb more deeply. We also tap into the essence of sacred sexuality, what it means, and how you can practice it in your own life. You owe it to yourself to love your whole self. We also talk about: Leading your way through life by your feelings and curiosity Having a prayer for your life Being thankful for the moments life kicks you down Coming into yourself and your sexuality Common blocks to making progress Men's relationships to their bodies The language we use to describe our body parts Tending to the womb and the power of creation The history of yoni eggs  Resources:  yonieggs.com Instagram: @tiffanyjanay Instagram: @lovequartzyonieggs Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

519. Animal Communication: How to Connect with Your Pets

Animals are such an important part of our emotional, mental, and physical health. They seem to understand our emotions – sometimes even more than we do. And if they can sense our emotions, it shouldn’t surprise us to find out that we can communicate with them on an even deeper level. Miranda Alcott is an animal and human communications counselor and she’s dedicated her life to facilitating greater understanding between animals and those that care for them. As children, we communicate intuitively with animals. So as adults working on healing our inner child, it’s important that we learn to get back in touch with that aspect of ourselves. Miranda dives into topics such as supporting our animals as their lives change alongside our own, how to listen harmoniously, and the lessons we can learn from our animals. We also talk about: Miranda’s story and how she came to recognize her gifts The HarmoniousListening™ approach and what it entails Personalities of animals and how they differ Learning to interpret what our animals teach us Ongoing growth in your relationship with your animal Listening to our animals effectively and responding appropriately Common themes with animals and their messages during the pandemic Higher-self communication vs. the animal in its 3D body Supporting your animals when you go on vacation Animal synchronicities and stories Resources:  mirandaalcott.com HarmoniousListening™ course: mirandaalcott.podia.com/harmoniouslistening-beginning-animal-communication Miranda’s YouTube: youtube.com/channel/UCPgwmHtPMSoZ39ADzLuP3lw Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

518. Taking Care Of Yourself While You Help Others With Karena Dawn

Karena Dawn has been on the podcast before talking about fitness and entrepreneurship as the co-founder of Tone It Up. Today, she joins us to talk about her new book, The Big Silence, a memoir about mental illness and healing. The title comes from the idea that there is still such a stigma surrounding mental health and discussing it openly. In it, she goes deep into parts of her life that are so evocative and powerful, from dealing with drugs, being arrested, and managing a strained relationship with her schizophrenic mother. We talk about her story, how to support someone with mental health issues while still taking care of yourself, and how she’s integrated her husband into the mental health discussion. It’s so important for us to break this silence together, have meaningful conversations around mental health, and shut down the stigma once and for all. We also talk about: Karena’s background of dealing with mental illness in her family Recognizing the complexity of everyone’s lived experiences Finding clarity at the end Taking care of yourself while you help others Discovering where to set boundaries Turning your childhood struggles into something beautiful Teaching people how to work with others who have mental health conditions The goal of The Big Silence Sponsors:   Get discount codes sent directly to your phone.

517. Healing Doesn't Always Have To Be Hard

Self-reflection isn’t easy. When it comes to doing the hard work, sometimes we’re drawn to looking for easy answers outside of ourselves, pushing us further from the answers that we already hold within. Jenna Reiss is a breathwork facilitator in Los Angeles, a doula, and also works with clients one-on-one. She has her own beautiful practice and teaches online, supporting people in their spiritual evolution through breathwork. In this conversation, she talks about the idea of coming home to yourself, what that means, and why, in our rush to heal, we so often get pushed further outside of ourselves.  She also dives into the personal healing journey, and how having compassion for everyone’s individual process starts with self-compassion. Jenna has an open heart and makes you feel good about being yourself. So get ready to laugh, go deep, and come home. We also talk about: Practicing the art of listening Taking responsibility for your own healing Learning to trust yourself How intuition is not a binary Getting stuck in a loop  Setting up a support system for yourself Being with your feelings Resources:  Website: jennareiss.com Instagram: @jennamreiss Facebook: facebook.com/JennaMReiss Beach Breathwork Collective Connection: 4-Week Healing Journey Expanded Wild Hearts Retreat Private Session Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

516. When You’ve Lost Your Center

You know what it feels like to hold the pose? Those moments where you feel fully present, embodied, and like you can just weather the storm and come out feeling strong? When you’re able to hold your own without reacting to it in the moment, you find so much more clarity and truth on the other side of things. We could all use a little more of that. In this solo episode with Lindsey, she’s going to share some tactical ways you can hold your pose, whether in a hard conversation, a physical reaction to an experience, or something that takes a long time to process and work through. It’s all about being intentional instead of reactive, and asking yourself what you really want to get out of a situation and responding accordingly. If you want to increase your confidence, increase your self-trust, and abandon yourself less, be your highest self in every moment. This one’s for you. We also talk about: What it means to be in your center Identifying what it feels like to be in or off your center Action vs activity How Lindsey comes back to center Cultivating a relationship with your center Breathwork as a way of coming back to the center Finding a centering tone Snapping back to your center Finding tools to help you build healthy habits Auditing your lifestyle Resources:  Join Krista’s Life Edit course at lifeeditbykrista.com Follow Jas on Instagram: @jasofmoon Read: Tantra by Osho Visit myjupitercard.com/lindsey to enter the Jupiter Card waitlist and be entered to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

513. Defining Our Own Wellness Narrative with Dr. Zach Bush

Look, we KNOW y’all love Dr. Zach Bush. How? Because the last time he was on the show was one of our highest downloaded and most widely discussed episodes of all time. The numbers don’t lie, folks. In the off chance you aren’t familiar, though, here’s the short of it: he’s a triple-board certified doctor, he owns the company Ion, and he runs his own non-profit. In other words, the man’s a mother-loving fountain of wisdom. His conversation with K+L is hard to quantify, but he touches on a bit of everything, from our physical, mental, and spiritual health, the troubling direction our society is heading in, and what he views to be the antidote to it all.

512. Lilly Singh: Come Home to Yourself

Lilly Singh is at the top of her game – and for good reason. She’s the definition of multifaceted, and she embodies that energy in her career and everything she does. Entertainer, actress, producer, writer, creator, she’s a multi-hyphenated megastar. Hot off the heels of her historic late-night talk show, we dive into all that she’s accomplished, how having a seat at the table doesn’t guarantee you have a voice, and managing to take care of yourself while trying to accomplish it all. Lilly still believes hustle is an important ingredient to success, but she doesn’t think you have to sacrifice your physical and mental health for years to get there. In her new book, Be A Triangle, Lilly outlines the discovery process she went through to create a strong, unshakable foundation within herself – one she could come home to no matter what season her life was in. We also talk about: Why Lilly doesn’t recommend anyone give a TED Talk The changing cultural landscape around traditional TV Understanding your parents’ experience and what’s relevant (or not) to your life Lilly’s coming out story Being discerning with your creativity What it means to become a triangle Sponsors: BetterHelp | Get 10% off your first month of therapy at betterhelp.com/almost30 Base | Save 20% off your first month of membership with code ALMOST30 at get-base.com/almost30 House of Wise | Visit houseofwise.co and use code ALMOST30 for 20% off your first order Honeybook | Start a free trial at honeybook.com/almost30 and enjoy 30% off your first year Resources: Instagram: @lilly TikTok: @lilly YouTube: youtube.com/LillySingh Read: Be A Triangle Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

511. Here's to Your Rising with Sheleana Aiyana

Sheleana Aiyana is the real deal when it comes to processing family trauma. After you hear the story of what she went through as a child – and how she overcame it – you'll be a believer as well. Sheleana knows that, if more of us could understand the impact of inherited family trauma and how to move through it, the world would be a brighter place. She’s the founder of Rising Woman, a community of more than three million readers. Sheleana is very truthful, very heart-centered, and she’s doing work that helps so many people. Her new book, “Becoming the One,” debunks the myth that we need someone from outside ourselves, “the one,” to come into our life and save us.

510. Building a Support System for Growth with Manoj Dias

How many of us truly understand what it means to be mindful? Manoj Dias was raised under Buddhist mindfulness traditions. Today, he’s also deeply embedded in the modern world. For some time, he was chasing a different life working in marketing and finance, but that experience – and the toll it took on his health – only strengthened his resolve as he found his way back to his roots. Having learned so much about the art of being present, he co-founded Open, a modern mindfulness studio merging technology, culture, and cinematography, with proven practices to grow community and nurture presence. He dives deep into the mindfulness of embracing pain, what it means to be mindful in your relationships, and how it feels to be truly embodied.  We also talk about: The brokenheartedness of disembodiment Being mindful in your friendships Creating a relationship with pain Changing your narrative around love Leaving your old life behind Making the decision to cut people out of your life Transformative Buddhist philosophies Cultivating a healthy relationship with technology Why Manoj started Open Sponsors: Arrae | Visit arrae.com and use code ALMOST30 for 10% off your purchase Milk + Honey | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off your order and your first spa service at milkandhoneyspa.com Truebill | Download the app at truebill.com/almost30 BetterHelp | Get 10% off the first month of therapy at betterhelp.com/almost30 Resources: (Use keywords, titles, proper nouns, etc., to describe each third-party resource) Learn more at manojdias.com.au Follow Manoj on Instagram: @manojdias_ Follow Open on Instagram: @op_e___n You can get a free month of Open at open-together.com/almost30 Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

506. Your Inner Teenager Healing Guide

You may remember Bethany Webster from our most recent Camp Almost 30 where she, we have to say, brought the freaking house down. She also joined us in March of 2021, where she introduced the community to the life-changing idea of the “Mother Wound,” and about healing and dealing with the multi-generational trauma that gets passed on to us. Now, she’s helping us to identify another unheard part of ourselves, our inner teenager. By now, the idea of the inner child is totally understood, but our inner teenager still hangs out in there. Like most teenagers, yours is probably misunderstood or completely ignored.  That part of you has so much to give and Bethany Webster helps us get on the level to understand those lessons. Tune in.

After some intentional reflection – and a good bit of planning – she decided to listen to the call, logging off of all social media for thirty days.  In this episode, Lindsey opens up about what came through during this period of intentional nothingness. From self-judgment to an unleashed sense of creativity and purpose, she explores how she found meaning and came home to self in the absence of screen. We also talk about: Receiving the download to take a break off social media Setting energetic intentions and realigning priorities Imbuing life with intention  Finding purpose in self How to set yourself up for a meaningful digital detox Sponsors: Zocdoc | Search for local doctors who take your insurance.

490. Get Lost to Find Yourself with Kimberly Snyder

Nutrition is so much more than chugging green juice smoothies and smashing out sessions on a Peloton. Our relationship to food is an energetic extension of self. It reflects our mental and environmental nourishment on a deep level. When renowned celebrity nutritionist and bestselling author, Kimberly Snyder, made the conscious decision to create something that veered from the existing food narrative, she found her authentic essence. Up close, it wasn’t the number on the scale, the figure in her bank account, or even a partner. It was the groundedness of her daily mindfulness practice, the activation of love as a frequency, and the conscious attention and devotion spent with life’s teachers, such as guru Paramahansa Yogananda.  When she was 34-weeks pregnant, she received the download for her next passion project: to distill her life lessons and teachings into a guide to help others discover their limitless potential.  In this episode, we dive into her mindfulness masterpiece, “You Are More Than You Think You Are,” and explore how to cultivate practical enlightenment into every fold and fiber of your being. We also talk about: Finding a spiritual connection to nutrition  Why getting lost can help you find yourself  How to cultivate conscious connection   Detaching from ego and external validation  Creativity and channeling a book  Sponsors: FLEX | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off Flex disc starter kits or 10% off your first Flex cup + free shipping at flexfits.com/almost30 Arrae | Use code “ALMOST30” for 10% off on arrae.co Issuu | Get 50% off a premium account by visiting issuu.com/podcast and using code ALMOST30 House of Wise | Use code “ALMOST30” for $20 off your order at houseofwise.co FX Chocolate | Go to FXchocolate.com and enter code "ALMOST30" for 20% off Resources: Read: “You Are More Than You Think You Are” Website: mysolluna.com Instagram: @_kimberlysnyder Join our community: almost30.com/membership facebook.com/Almost30podcast/groups Podcast disclaimer can be found by visiting: almost30.com/disclaimer.  Find more to love at almost30.com!

488. Making Sense of God, Religion and Spirituality

Do you believe in God? Contemplating your relationship to spirit can feel supercharged with triggering emotions, especially if we’ve had negative or uninspiring interactions with religion in the past.  In this episode, K + L reflect on their spiritual evolution and relationship with God. From traditional rituals of childhood conditioning to the framework they feel aligned with today. They discuss how they navigated resistance around what it means to believe in God, and how the process of unlearning conventions has helped them cultivate a connection with God that feels unconditional, authentic, and life-affirming.  We also talk about: Individual journeys with religion  Coming back to a relationship with God  Spectrums of religion Judgements in religion and consequences  How to make spirituality your own Sponsors: Athletic Greens | Get a 1-year supply of Vitamin D + five FREE travel packs with your first purchase at athleticgreens.com/almost30 Bev | Get 20% off your first purchase + free shipping at drinkbev.com/almost30 or use code “ALMOST30” at checkout Elavi | Get 15% off when you use the code ALMOST30 + free shipping on 2 pouches or more at elavi.co  Open | Get 30 days free with the code ALMOST30 at open-together.com/almost30 Daily Harvest | Use code ALMOST30 to get up to $40 off your first box at www.daily-harvest.com/almost30 Resources: “Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion” by Sam Harris  “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself” by Michael A.

487. Sexual Pleasure + Clearing Blocks in Partnership

Sex carries so much currency in our internal and external landscapes. For many, sexuality is cloaked in shame, fear, or heady expectations that leave us feeling short-changed and disempowered. Fortunately, the tides are shifting with the help of pioneers like Dr. Kate Balestrieri, a sex therapist helping people integrate the physical and emotional components of sex, sexuality, and relationships.  True sexual embodiment is a journey, not a destination (the same can be said for orgasms). This conversation undresses all the topics you’ve probably been thinking about but were too scared to utter out loud. Krista, Lindsey, and Dr. Kate candidly untangle the narrative surrounding porn, patriarchy, and partnerships while boldly confronting the common intimacy challenges in modern relationships today.  We also talk about: How the nervous system affects pleasure  Navigating expectations around sex Exploring blocks in partnership Why couples therapy works The spectrum of sex positivity Patriarchy and internalized misogyny  Desire, fetish, and ethical porn Tips for elevating your sexual practice  Processing sexual trauma  Sponsors: Zocdoc | Search for local doctors who take your insurance.

475. Something is Wrong with Health in America with Shawn Stevenson

We're trapped in a web of narratives. Right now, the United States is crippled by an obesity epidemic that's getting bigger, made worse by the endless wave of related "facts" coming at us from every screen. If there is a pill for every ill, why are we so sick? Shawn Stevenson has been on a 20-year mission to learn and research where we went wrong and how we can get out of this mess. Forget about "burning fat" and instead learn the facts that will free us from this prison of chronic illness. Shawn's exit strategy is to share information from an objective place, without an agenda, and truly respect the human body as a complex lab. Your value is not based on a number. Fat is not your enemy, it's more of an overprotective parent. Let's step back, look within, and see what we find. We also talk about: The current state of health A nuanced approach to obesity and weight loss Fat: what it is and why we need it Gut health and immunity  The biology of fear  How do we move forward?

470. Out of the Mind and Into The Body with Taryn Toomey

Taryn Toomey, founder of The Class, helps regulate the mental gymnastics of our mind with intentional movement.

469. What if my partner isn't spiritual?

Anger, disappointment, betrayal. These are the textbook reactions to your partner when they show no interest in your self-awakening. It feels like everyone else on Instagram are #spiritualcouplegoals, casually going to ayahuasca retreats in Costa Rica. Meanwhile, you can’t get your other half to go to a yoga class. So, what do you do when you’re filling your cup with all the self-help books, crystals – ALL the things – but your partner is not interested in following the same path? If you feel yourself falling down a rabbit hole of spiritual manipulation, tune into this solo episode with Krista, where she unpacks the do’s and don'ts of addressing spiritual imbalance in partnership and how to silence the spiritual ego from rearing its not-so-enlightened head.

468. Animals and Their Healing Powers with Alyson Charles

During Alyson Charles' brutal yet beautiful spiritual awakening, animals were a daily medicine that coaxed repressed traumas to the surface. Through the initiation, she rebirthed as "RockStar Shaman" with a mission to collaborate directly with the wisdoms of Mother Earth and Great Spirit/Source, and bridge the gap between animals and humans.  Her spiritual allegiance to the animal world comes full circle with her new book, Animal Power, which decodes the spiritual significance of 100 species along with transformative practices to deepen your relationship with the power animal wanting to support you at this time. In this episode, Alyson reveals the emotionally-charged backstory to birthing her living, breathing medicine book, the responsibility of owning her role as a shaman, and how lessons from surrender and celibacy led her to find sacred union with Luke Storey.  We also talk about: Exploring the death portal  The potency of illustrations in Animal Power  The meaning behind The Eagle Condor Prophecy  How to connect to your power animal The responsibility that comes with spiritual gifts Advice on surviving a spiritual awakening  The inner work to finding an aligned relationship Sponsors: Beekeeper’s Naturals | Go to beekeepersnaturals.com/almost30 or use code “ALMOST30” for 25% off your first order.

467. Jenna Kutcher: Blending Motherhood and Entrepreneurship

Minnesota mama and marketing pro, Jenna Kutcher, has ticked off all the things on “the list.” She built a seven-figure digital business from scratch (thanks to a $300 camera purchase on Craigslist), married her life partner, and is a mother after years of trying.  Now, Jenna’s sights are set beyond Instagram strategy. She’s changing the blueprint of what motherhood should look like, and is focusing on the present. The gifts she’s received have been tenfold. She learned how to delegate as a CEO, became the sole breadwinner of her (growing) family, and made actionable steps towards inclusivity in her business.  The goal is not set in stone. Jenna is constantly shedding, cleaning out her closet, trying things on for size, and reclaiming the titles she’s picked up along the way. After all, isn’t that the point of living? We also talk about: The path to motherhood and experience miscarrying Jenna’s hormone reset, getting pregnant and coming home to her body Taking maternity leave as an entrepreneur and parenting arrangements  Accepting your own timeline and allowing yourself to evolve  How to be an entrepreneur, business owner, and maintain your creative vision  Lessons learned from the pandemic and how it shifted her focus  Leveraging social media for good Sponsors: NutriBullet | Use code “ALMOST30NATION” for 20% off at nutribullet.com SAKARA | Go to sakara.com/almostsakara and use code ALMOSTSAKARA for 20% off your first order House of Wise | Use code “ALMOST30” for $20 off your order at houseofwise.co HUM Nutrition | Receive 20% off first orders of $29+ with code ALMOST30 at humnutrition.com BetterHelp | Visit betterhelp.com/almost30 for 10% off your first month.

Living authentically has proven to be true medicine for Emma, even if it’s a hard concoction to swallow at times. Getting canceled is no walk in the park. Breakups suck, and we all want someone to hold our hand sometimes.  In this episode, K + L provide a safe space for Emma to speak uninterrupted and unfiltered about her self-discovery journey thus far, searching for validation in self-help books, partners, and people before realizing she already had all the answers within herself.  We also talk about: Isolation, community, and self-censorship Evolving friendships, losing friends, and searching for validation  Public persona, self-abandonment, and lessons learned from being canceled Intuitive movement, and trusting your intuition  Unconditional love, and loving without labels  Sponsors: Joybird | Visit joybird.com/almost30 for 30% off your purchase.  House of Wise | Use code “ALMOST30” for $20 off your order at houseofwise.co NutriBullet | Use code “ALMOST30NATION” for 20% off at nutribullet.com HUM Nutrition | Receive 20% off first orders of $29+ with code ALMOST30 at humnutrition.com Zocdoc | Search for local doctors who take your insurance.

464. Psilocybin, Mental Health + Reshaping Relationships with Organic Olivia

For Olivia Amitrano, herbalism is everything. In college, a concoction of Chinese medical herbs would heal her crippling skin and gut issues, and, at 28 years old, a profound psilocybin journey lifted the veil on her shadow and transformed her life outlook. Now her sights are set on the powerful properties and rituals of tea. Did we mention, she's the founder of modern herbal medicine brand Organic Olivia? Olivia is creating space in her life, whether that's taking three weeks to go offline and learning new ways to hold a safe container for friendship or simply going for a long walk.  In this episode, she divulges how her self-awareness journey is shaping her relationships and how her passion for herbalism was planted, and why it just keeps on growing.   We also talk about: What that looks and feels like to go completely offline The transformational psilocybin journey that lifted the veil Navigating anxiety, hormonal and gut health Reframing exercise + the wonders of walking  How she found herbalism and future business plans Sponsors: Sugarbreak | Break free from sugar dependence with a natural, non-prescription support system.
