550. Just Married: Lindsey’s Wedding Recap
It happened so fast that maybe you missed it – but, with only ten weeks of inspired and aligned planning, Lindsey and Sean celebrated their marriage a few weeks back. Hosting a non-traditional two-day event, they made their own dreams come true with friends and family in New York City and set the standard for their life together from this point on. Lindsey drops in for this intimate solo episode to talk about the important energetically aligned decisions that went into her wedding weekend, how she and Sean built an even deeper trust in one another by splitting up planning duties, and how – even with only two weeks to find hair and makeup artists – she never spiraled under the pressure of it all. We also talk about: Setting very clear intentions  Changing your perspective on spending Splitting up planning in a real way To botox or not to botox? Energetic alignment with vendors Avoiding negative spirals  Detailed visualization practice  Making the day our own Wedding weekend details Resources: Wedding look hair by (@miiki.hair)  Wedding look makeup by (@downtownpepper) Wedding photography by (Natalia Wajda) Wedding videography by (@mariah.films) and (@gio.visuals) Love Fest venue (Legacy Records) (High Priestess of Brooklyn) (The Analog Girl Podcast) 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)!

549. Emotional Maturity and its Importance in Relationships
Prolific author and poet, Diego Perez, aka Yung Pueblo, sits with Lindsey for this special episode on the powers of meditation, living in partnership, the creative process, and so much more. We also talk about (Lighter), his new book, inspired by the feeling of shedding weight and past traumas he’s experienced through his advanced meditation practice. Diego shares some great wedding tips and explains how he and his wife go ten, sometimes forty-five, days at a time without seeing or speaking to one another at meditation retreats – and how finding the practice has changed his worldview forever.  It might sound cliche, but this conversation will leave you feeling lighter. Diego’s words and deep wisdom, especially outside of the questionable confines of social media (which we also unpack), are powerful and resonant.  We also talk about: Emotional immaturity vs. maturity  Preventative communication Meditation practice Finding your intuition Living in partnership Diego’s creative process  Who is Yung Pueblo?

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? And why is it so hard for highly sensitive people to untangle the answer from everything around them? Your empathic gifts don’t need to be a weight on your life, or a curtain blocking the light from coming through. If understood and acknowledged from a place of personal love and acceptance, they can be your superpower. We all have some of it within us; Krista gets extra personal in this one to illustrate that very point.  We also talk about: Powers of an empath Intro to codependency  Krista’s childhood denying her gifts  Loyalty vs. low self-worth Energy matching for safety  Empathy as performance Validate me, internet  Speaking + living in truth Attachment styles Resources: (How to Thrive as an Empath: Understand The Shadow Side and Your Gifts #540) (Healing The Mother Wound With Krista Williams #407) (Krista Williams on Her Silent Retreat Experience #256) 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)!

547. The Betches Empire: Realness on Biz + Life from Online OGs
Jordana Abraham is one-third of the founding team behind OG online humor and content brand, Betches. K + L visit their New York headquarters for this one, as Jordana walks through how a parody blog they started in college has grown into a full-blown media empire. We talk about team dynamics and the delicate dance of dividing up business responsibilities amongst friends, and unpack the team’s shift into podcasting as a means to have deeper conversations about the world around them. Jordana is a breath of fresh air, a reminder that, considering the many stressors around us at any given time – we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. We are here to laugh and to love abundantly.

546. Your Purpose is Who You Are with Julie Piatt
Divine musician, vegan foods entrepreneur, and spiritual soul guide, Julie Piatt, joins Krista for her second appearance on the show as they take the temperature of the world and greater community within it. The results? Radical evolution is here to stay. Julie explains that the power of the divine feminine is on the rise and provides practices which allow us to recognize and channel it. She also talks about the seasons of her relationship, honoring herself and her wisdom in celebration of her sixtieth birthday, and tells of a deeply meaningful pilgrimage to India, twelve years ago, which connected to a recent near-death experience. Julie is another in a long line of Almost 30 guests who not only contain and embody a true sense of divine purpose, but emit it out into the world through their words and energetic signature.

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. We also talk about: Energy matching Tuning into vibrational frequency  Losing yourself to outside experiences How we interact with overstimulating environments  Checking in with your own needs What the scroll is actually doing for our mind Krista’s physical heart boundary practice  Observed traits of an empath  Resources: (The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron) 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)!

Chervin Jafarieh is the founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Cymbiotika, a game-changing health brand built on, as we learn in this episode, deep knowledge and ancient connective philosophies. Chervin knows a lot about everything, having awakened to the world’s truths as a young child, and we aren’t shy in ushering this conversation in every direction it wanders in. He touches on technology and its role in poisoning the collective mind, dieting and the important role that oral health plays in our longevity, EMF, morning routines, biohacking, and cycles of abuse in the media. Don't worry, we make sure to do a deep, deep dive on his incredible products – the innovative body solubility of liposomes and so much more.  Chervin’s well of understanding and empathy is so deep – it’s truly heart opening to share such a flowing and inspiring conversation with the Almost 30 community.

537. Friendship Breakups: How to Deal + How to Heal
Aug 4 2022
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.

532. Detoxing Your Body and Relationships for Longevity with Queen Afua
Queen Afua is just that, an absolute queen – in her boundless energy, her crystal clear outlook, and her gravitational pull on young women looking for answers. As a pioneer in the clean eating and natural wellness space, it's her mission to provide those answers through the power of nature and all of its amazing gifts. A bestselling author, speaker, holistic health practitioner, guide, and mentor – she’s changed the lives of millions, and thrives off of the healing process, both in herself and in others. Her practice is rooted in her own experience, as is so often the case. We learn how she cured herself of eczema, arthritis, and asthma as a teen and how that awakening has inspired the rest of her life and career. We also touch on emotional eating, detoxing the mind and body as it relates to intimacy and relationships, the immense power of listening and asking questions, and so much more – this one goes deep and stays light all at the same time. More than deep, Queen shares specific tactical advice that we can all incorporate into our lives, today, in order to effect positive change in our wellbeing.  It is such an honor and privilege to bring you this truly heart opening conversation. Queen was such a great presence to share space with; we sincerely hope our synchronicity shines through while you listen and welcomes you in for a hug (or a warm bath!). We also talk about: Life before she was Queen  Healing through a change in diet  Impeccable listening  Crisis as an opportunity to ask questions  The power and long history of inversion poses   Emotional eating  Sacred bath practice   Detoxing intimacy + relationships  Sponsors: Get discount codes sent directly to your phone.
