Connect with him directly via his website andon TikTok.EPISODE TAKEAWAYSLife is a series of seasons.Season One: His name was John and he was conservative.Stayed in a toxic relationship for a long time. Raised 8 kids.Parenting is such hard work - it becomes your entire identity!Started asking questions, as a conservative Christian, and things stopped adding up.Don’t just believe what you’re told. EXPLORE and learn for yourself!Travel and connecting with new people will open up your heart and mind.Change starts with admitting YOU were wrong (and will likely continue to make mistakes).Boundaries allow you to control who is invited into your life.Lack of control caused serious depression.

Mind-Body Evolution

Mind-Body Evolution
Courageous • Centered • Responsibility We often think of fear as something that keeps us small and stuck - it can, in fact, do all of those things. But there’s also the flip side of fear - the empowering side - the brave side. This side of fear informs. It allows you to dig deep into yourself and find ways to heal, grow and prosper. Today I welcome Sarah Hagstrom Join us to talk about her journey through fear and learning to heal her own body through a mind-body approach. She’s  determined to make the world a healthier and happier place through her growing health coaching businesses with healthy bottom lines, helping folks establish strong foundations from the start.Episode Highlights:Do the things that bring you joy, simply for the sake of joy.Don’t miss your joy opportunities! Sarah grew up with a deep seeded fear of “who is going to take care of me? I have to take care of myself.”This fear caused lots of physical ailments.Documentary: Food matters - Changed Sarah’s life.Humans tend to become unconscious around food choices.Community can be created in a lot of ways. Seek those who can help you have the life you most desire.Any behavior (including eating) we do, constantly, as a coping mechanism is unhealthy. Every human is different. What works for one person may not work for someone else.Just like everything else in life, reassessment is important.Don’t just “trust the experts.” You know yourself, trust yourself, and advocate for yourself.Stress and emotions that are left unattended show up as physical issues. Give words to your truth.Check out Journal Speak!All humans have mixed emotions. It’s ok - welcome them all.Our bodies heal when we give them the tools to heal - that is mind, body, and soul.Be compassionate to your fellow humans - you never know what they are experiencing You don’t need to be working non-stop. It’s not about “doing the most” it’s about how you feel!My natural instinct is to use positive words. There’s real work in allowing all thoughts and feelings without judgment.Connect with Sarah on her website or Instagram.

Can curiosity change your life?
Electrifying • Gritty • UnrealisticWhen Juliana Garcia was growing up she had a lot of questions - and asking those questions often lead to punishment because Juliana was supposed to put her head down, do what she was told, not make mistakes and to never, ever question things.Today, Juliana is an online entrepreneur with a multimillion-dollar business. She built this business on curiosity. She pioneers a cutting-edge client-centric approach that breaks the old school marketing rules and focuses on selling through intimacy, integrity, strong mindset tools, and zero BS.Growing up Juliana believed that unless she was perfect she wouldn’t be enough and there would be punishment.Forgiveness of self is the real game changer.The most important relationship Juliana has is with her inner child. Now she has her own back.You can be your own cheerleader.Juliana’s “drug of choice” was validation.She grew up with a desire to be understood.Be in a state of constant curiosity. Traveling the world gave me the ability to empathize and it changed my life.Powerful communication is about being interested and curious about what’s happening for others.Asking questions about how others feel helps deescalate tense situations.Just get it done, do the thing and be gentle with yourself in the process.Being average was uncomfortable but perfect was unbearable!Stop listening to everyone else - if it’s not working for you or you don’t like it, don’t do it!Studying people is an excellent form of education.Celebration always starts internally and then I share it externally.Being witnessed in your winning allows others to believe in what’s possible.Charity: Dogs and the innocence project. If you’ve been inspired, touched, entertained or motivated by this or any of Heather Vickery’s content you can “say thanks” by buying her a virtual coffee!Follow us on Instagram and connect with our host, Heather Vickery here.ORDER YOUR COPY OF F*CK FEARLESS - MAKING THE BRAVE LEAP TODAY, Click Here!Order your Create Brave Manifestation Card Decks here.Share your feedback by emailing heather@vickeryandco.com

Sex: From Trauma to Empowerment - With Guest, Leah Carey (Summer Break 2022 Fan Fav Replay)

Sex: From Trauma to Empowerment - With Guest, Leah Carey (Summer Break 2022 Fan Fav Replay)
In her early 40s, Leah began a profound journey into sexual healing – and you are invited to join herLeah Carey was subjected to sexual trauma from an early age. Her father’s alcoholic and narcissistic behaviors created extremely confusing messages about sex. As a result, she was left without the tools necessary to build healthy and intimate relationships. She completely lacked the ability to advocate for her own pleasure and claim her own bodily autonomy. Tune in to hear about Leah’s transformative journey where she learned to heal old sexual issues, love her own body, and discover how to truly enjoy all sexual experiences.Having grown up in a home that was deeply confused and conflicted around sexuality – and with a father who told her she was fat, ugly, and no one would ever love her – Leah spent most of her life in fear of her own femaleness and the trouble it could get her into.This conversation is wildly brave and given the state of America these days, these conversations need to be had more often, more loudly, and with more reverence for the social impact required to create real and sustainable change. Connect with Leah on her website.Follow us on Instagram and connect with our host, Heather Vickery here.ORDER YOUR COPY OF F*CK FEARLESS - MAKING THE BRAVE LEAP TODAY, Click Here!Order your Create Brave Manifestation Card Decks here.Check out The Brave Files Book Collection here! Get your BRAVE on by joining our exclusive (and FREE) Facebook Collective, Brave on Purpose. Join here. Share your feedback by emailing heather@vickeryandco.comGrab your BRAVE AF and GRATEFUL AF swag now.

Which dives into the seven types of rest needed to optimize your productivity, increase overall happiness, and live the best life possible. Now she’s teaching the next generation of doctors the importance of treating the whole person – mind, body, and spirit.
