Dr. Shefali, an expert in family dynamics and personal development and NY Times Best-selling author, joins me this week to talk about how to radically awaken yourself from the fear-based patterns women have been raised into and instead embrace our truths and live free.

We explore many of the glitches in psychological armor that keep women from daring to speak up. Dr. Shefali also helps us to understand why we are giving up our power every day of our lives—to food, to self-loathing, or to other people. As Dr. Shefali says, “If we don’t see it and name it, we will forever be devoured by it.”

Show Highlights

  • A radical awakening to cultural conditioning women have been raised into. (5:57)
  • The childhood abduction of our authentic self. (8:40)
  • Why women are prone to living on a hamster wheel of life and how to stand in the power of your worth instead. (13:38)
  • The tug of war between listening to our inner being versus what culture expects us to be. (17:20)
  • How to get to a place of radical awakening—there is no shame in asking for help. (22:22)
  • Why it is important to break the image of being good, perfect, superwomen. Baring our truth shouldn’t be a maverick move. Being ordinary/average is good. (24:05)
  • The lies about love, marriage, and divorce.  (29:49)
  • What Dr. Shefali means when she says, “Your ego can be betrayed but your essence cannot be.” (31:53)
