"Everything that I'd ever believed in, in that moment, was tested. If I truly believe that we are not only co-creating our life but that we have sacred contracts with others, and that everything happens for a reason and that reason is usually because we've designed it somehow, then I can't be a victim to this and I have to understand that perhaps my son not being alive in the physical sense, is actually inviting me into a different path in my life. It's inviting me to birth myself."

Today, on The Podcast Series, I'm chatting with Beáta Alföldi of Wild Heart Awakening.

Beáta's journey begins all the way back at the age of four when she fell in love with dancing. Later in life, after winning a scholarship, she trained in America and eventually moved to England to work in the theatre. An opportunity, she describes, that allowed her to combine her love for dance, creative inspiration and travel.

It would seem like Beáta was living the dream life. Yet the Universe had bigger plans.

One evening, as she looked out over the theatre show she had tirelessly worked on for months, a little voiced asked “Is this it? Is this going to be it for the rest of my life?”

Many people would shy away from this question but Beáta – having always had a stead-fast commitment to only ever doing what she loves – set about rectifying the in-congruency between her current life and her soul’s desires, opening herself to a series of synchronistic events that propelled her down the path of yoga and then eventually leading her to discover shamanic and energetic healing.

In this interview, you’ll hear Beáta talk about her lack of self-belief, the challenges and the fear she bumped up against as the Universe guided her to step up and claim her gifts.

And you’ll hear the story of her dark night of the soul, a heart-breaking moment in which she lost her son, Alakai, during child birth. Beáta shares how this moment became the path to a new level of transcendence and inner freedom,  giving her the courage to fully claim and step into her life’s work and purpose.

A very special podcast for you today, lovely... a chat with my awesome big sister and fellow She Makes Magic co-creator, Alana Helbig.

When I last spoke with Alana for the podcast series, she was standing right at the foot of an epic adventure – preparing to drive all the way around Australia in Walter the Campervan, all on her own.

Nine months and 30,000km later, Alana's returned home.

And god, what an adventure she's had. You'll hear Alana speak just so honestly about how she fell into a deep, dark depression, which led to emotional eating, weight gain and acne.

That all began to change when Walter the Campervan badly broke down.

"I joke to my friends that Walter had to break down in order to stop me from breaking down. Because the path that I was on was not healthy. I was not in the present moment and I was losing the joy of my trip," Alana says.

So much raw vulnerability and wisdom packed into this one. Listen in here: http://shemakesmagic.com/podcast-021-alana-helbig/

So damn excited about our very first podcast for 2016 – this one's a chat with the incredibly inspiring and pretty bloody famous Dr Ezzie Spencer. Woot!

Ezzie left behind her law career to turn her personal practice – cultivating inner peace and prosperity by following the moon's cycle – into a thriving business.

In this podcast, Ezzie reveals just how she did it. And what I love best is that there was no dramatic leap, no overnight success, no pushing, no pressure, no race to six-figure incomes.

In fact, Ezzie – who says she's a risk-adverse introvert – actively avoided all that. Instead, she found this beautifully feminine way to deal with crippling fear that bubbled up almost daily and threatened to hold her back.

And it all comes back to one thing – the moon.

A new podcast is go, yo. Up today is Kelley Sheenan, founder of the delightful Australian eco fashion and lifestyle magazine, Peppermint.

Kelley chats about her journey from career confusion to launching a magazine with a zero dollar budget, how she coped while on the brink of financial failure and amid marital breakdown, and how she embraced fear and overcame impostor syndrome.

"I remember the first time someone called me fat. I wasn’t more than six or seven years old. At the time I don’t think I really even knew what it meant but I knew it was bad. That I was bad. That I wasn’t good enough.

I remember the first time I went on a diet. I was 15. As the weight dropped off, my apparent love for myself grew exponentially. Then I gained the weight back and I hated myself again. Hated myself into a dark depression.

“You’re fat” became the insult of choice. Family members, girls at school, even strangers would use those words to hurt me. And it did. An arrow direct to the bulls-eye of my heart.
I don’t remember a time since when I haven’t been on a diet...

I started my self- healing journey three years ago but, until now, I’ve only skirted around the edges of self-love.

“Fuck self-love” I’d say to myself.

I’d see the pretty, skinny girls preaching self-love and I’d think: “Well that’s fine for you. Look at you! What’s not to love?”

Or most commonly I’d say to myself: “I don’t know how to love myself. Where would I even start? It’s impossible.” And I’d never begin because it just felt all too big and overwhelming.

Just recently I had a profound realisation..."

A little "light" Sunday night reading for you... On the blog, I'm getting really raw and honest about my struggle with self-love. ~ alana

A new podcast is go! Today, a chat with former rock journalist turned divine feminine writer, Sarah Durham Wilson of Do It Girl.

Sarah's journey has been bloody hard and she's not pretending she has it all figured out yet. Here she speaks with raw honesty about the messiness of transformation, in a way that is deeply comforting.

If you've ever felt like you're too messy, too out of control, or too close to rock bottom, this frank and forthright podcast is for you.

+ A GIVEAWAY! A copy of each of Sarah's two newest books are up for grabs, too.

Get the deets and listen in here: http://shemakesmagic.com/podcast-013-sarah-durham-wilson/

Have you heard about oil pulling, that process of swilling oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes each day? Sounds pretty disgusting, huh?

Well, yeah. But I've actually benefitted hugely from giving it a go, and I reckon you might too – especially if you suffer from adult acne, like me.

Head on over to the blog to find out why:

It's podcast time again! Today, a chat with a lady I've loooooong been a fan of – Marisa Lynch.

A few years back, after losing her job, Marisa challenged herself to make 365 upcycled dresses in 365 days for just $365. No small feat, huh?

Her New Dress A Day blog quickly went viral and she has since appeared on TV, been interviewed by the likes of The New York Times, made dresses for celebrities and even secured a book deal. Yet the way she defines success has nothing to do with any of this stuff.
