012 Hug Your Hormones with Emma Polette



Welcome to Episode 12

In this episode I talk with my dear friend and biz bestie, Emma Polette.

We started our wonderful conversation with me asking Emma what it means to her to be a women. She feels life is multi-passionate – busy, exciting and stressed all at the same time, with women wearing many hats with family, business and community commitments.

Emma is a qualified Health Coach, Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor based in Western Australia and she shares her journey from the corporate world to becoming a multi-passionate entrepreneur.

In this conversation we dive deep into women’s health and hormonal issues and Emma’s personal journey with endometriosis. Before this conversation, I am embarrassed to say, that I had no idea of how debilitating – mentally, emotionally and physically this condition is. It is privilege to discuss this in such an open and honest way – to push aside any taboos and talk about how it really affect women’s lives.

At the time of recording this, Emma was scheduled for major surgery to have a hysterectomy and shares her self-care support program, including self-forgiveness, tapping, daily journaling and honouring herself as a woman each day and using a monthly womb blessing ritual (inspired by Sara Brooke).

Emma is now on a mission to inspire other women to show themselves love and compassion and kindness and address hormonal imbalance through health and fitness. She is launching her podcast: Hug your Hormones

To stay healthy and balanced Emma enjoys regular meditations and also –

  • chakra cards to support her daily
  • by noticing how her body feels through personal intuition
  • gratitude journal and daily journaling

She has also received great support from Kinesiologist Kerry Rowett

Emma’s tip for making changes is to take action. It’s great to have the knowing of what to do, but you achieve things by actually ‘doing’ and taking action.

For any women dealing with hormonal health issues Emma suggests reading Rushing Women Syndrome by Dr Libby Weaver.

 

 


011 Healing, Health & Harmony with Tracy O’Meara Smith



 

In this episode I’m chatting with the lovely Tracy O’Meara Smith who is a Perth-based Holistic Health Practitioner (www.silverdale.com.au/). This a a deep and meandering conversation with a woman who I have formed a beautiful connection with.
We actually recorded this episode several weeks ago but I really wanted it to be the first episode released in 2017.
Tracy shares deeply about her own healing journey and her spiritual journey.  This conversation takes on a life of it’s own and I know that I could sit down and record another episode with Tracy and it would be unique and magical again.
I hope you enjoy the unfolding of this conversation.

Tracy believes that women of this world are here to awaken and enlighten us and that it starts within the family.If we keep peace and harmony in our home, it is reflected everywhere.

We talk about:

  • How she embraces both the feminine and masculine part of herself
  • Her experience from mental health issues to healing through knitting
  • How she found psychotherapy, aromatherapy and energy medicine
  • Her discovery and passion of Emmett and Bowen Therapy and also Flower Essences
  • How her step towards helping others began through surrendering towards a way to health
  • Why we need to honour our journey, as we’re all worthy of love and support
  • When we find harmony within ourselves amazing things happen

She shares how:

  • She accepts people as they are
  • She operates professionally from a sense of service, not allowing her own opinion to effect the healing
  • Believing in who you are and what you do allows peace
  • She enjoys learning more, staying fresh with ideas and how new clients are then presented to her
  • When we heal others we take ourselves out of the equation as it’s not about us

The modalities Tracy uses are –

  • Bowen Therapy – works on connective tissue
  • Emmett Therapy – uses the body’s natural receptors to find natural alignment
  • Tissue Salts – work at a cellular level
  • Flower Essences – takes subconscious to conscious through the vibration of certain flowers

which are all powerful ways to help the body heal at a cellular level and help our bodies reconnect with our spirit and our mind.

Tracy shares her daily self-love practices:

  • 5 minutes daily in her sacred space, with a lit candle and a dynamic meditation
  • Daily journaling
  • Being light with life – giving herself a ‘break’, seeing the good in what she’s done and how far she’s come

Tracy’s final word is;

“No matter what you’re going through there’s always a greater wisdom, and even though we’re in amongst it, all is well and to trust that. Finding inner trust will give you the greatest foundation you can give yourself”
