From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #10 - The Uncomfortable Art of Taking Your Own Medicine

Uncategorized



This episode is must-listen. Kelsey and Vanessa share something deeply personal.

Their commitment to being transparent and honest is relentless.

While pondering the question themselves,  "Can you receive and be what you dish out?"

It’s one thing to share advice and insights for others. It’s easy to give advice, it’s much
harder to turn the lens on yourself. Today’s conversation is centred around that exact
situation.

It’s the uncomfortable art of taking your own medicine. Living your truth. 

After Vanessa's shocking cancer diagnosis, they also discuss... 
What does a healer do when they are the person who needs healing?

How do you talk about it? How do you navigate the uncertainty that shows up when life doesn’t go as planned?

In true renegade style Kelsey and Vanessa share what has happened and how they’ve
processed learning about the diagnosis.

This is for everyone dealing with a challenge. It’s also for those who are...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #9 - Eating Consciousness (and the emotional side of food)

Why don’t we consult with our bodies about what we should eat?

I mean... Our Body is the one who's carrying us around, afterall. 

Short answer, we're not taught to. 

Kelsey and Vanessa are tackling one of the most controversial subjects... FOOD.

  • What would happen if you paid attention to what foods made you feel joy? 
  • Have you ever considered there's an emotional component of your food?
  • What does it mean to be in communion with your body?
  • What if we listened to our body instead of following a list of "good" foods and avoiding the "bad" ones?

    Listen as Vanessa explains how her food issues were resolved when she dealt with emotional blocks. Healing emotional enmeshment and practicing energy work was enough to heal what doctors considered a life sentence of IBS.

    Kelsey talks about cravings and the emotional pull for foods that don’t make us feel good physically, but satisfy an inner hunger. You’ll see an entirely new perspective...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #8 - Making Space by Letting Go


Are you struggling to let go of people or things that are no longer serving you?

A lot of us have anxiety when it comes to letting go of things or people in our lives.

Maybe it’s that table you bought years ago that just doesn't feel good in your space.

Maybe it's relationships you keep hanging onto, even though deep down you know you should cut dies with them...

Maybe, like Vanessa, it’s a handwoven rug that your babcia made for you when you were fifteen.

Or maybe it’s just years of clutter you’ve shoved in your closets and drawers that you swore you would get rid of or organize, but has piled up so much that your drawers are literally barfing them out.

It’s just “stuff”. So why is it so hard to let go?
 
In this episode, Kelsey and Vanessa talk about the importance of purging things, people, memories, and past emotions from our lives in order to make space for our next level, and why there’s so much discomfort that comes...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #7 - From Worrier to Warrior (And Everything In Between)


Does the word 'Healer' sound a little woo-woo to you?

Maybe, if you're like our Guest, Mel Chatigny, you've thought one of the following:
 
"This is f*cking bullshit... there's no way that hippie stuffs works."
 
"Healer? No. That word doesn't connect with me and my identity at all."
 
Meet Mel Chatigny — personal trainer, CrossFit coach, Olympic weight lifter, and all-around BADASS.
 
Mel is a graduate of our November Subconscious Imprinting (S.I.T.) class and in this episode, she talks about how she went from a broke trainer working 45 to 50 hours a week who was skeptical of the 'hippie voodoo woohoo' to opening up not only herself but also her clients to receive more in life through S.I.T.

  • Healed chronic hip pain affecting her workouts through ONE S.I.T. session

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #5 - Bloody Vulnerability | Leveraging Your Flow in Business



Let's talk about your period and how it affects you as a Female Renegade.

In this episode, Kelsey and Vanessa share the 4 PHASES every female (and male) Renegade should be aware of, and how it can radically change how you show up.

It's raw. 
It's vulnerable.
It's life-changing.


What are these 4 Phases of the Menstrual Cycle.

Kelsey shares with us this informative Forbes article.

According to Dr. Gaither, an award-winning multi-best selling author and serial entrepreneur, the menstrual cycle is divided into 4 phases.

Do you feel like you have the highest energy? Then, you are probably in Phase 1. This is the Follicular Phase. This is the time where women are most productive. This begins from the start of your period and lasts up to 14 days.

It is during Phase 2, when you are a great communicator. Your verbal skills are heightened and it’s a good time to have important conversations.

The Power Phase is Phase 3. It’s time to get things done. This is the longest...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #4 - Let's Talk Money (and how to get more of it)

Money. Nice people don’t talk about money. Or do they?

Vanessa and Kelsey are going to change how you think about all things money. Starting with the common gem that "making money has to be really, really hard".

"It only has value if it was hard, right?"

"There has to be sacrifice in order to be successful"

"If it’s easy, then it must not be valuable."

Lies, lies, oh so many lies.

How many of us have shame stories about money or the lack of it?
How much is that shame stifling your financial success and capacity to make money?

Other limiting beliefs we buy into:

  • There’s only one way to get money.
  • Manifesting ABUNDANCE only comes in the form of cash.
  • If you have or want lots of cash, you must be greedy.
  • If you find a short cut to earning big bucks you are sleazy, lazy and just ew.  

    And the heavy hitter ...

    "Money can’t buy you happiness". - Our favourite load a s#!&


    It’s time to challenge your money beliefs.
    Because...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #3 - Sex, Sexuality and Intimacy (from the perspective of a same sex couple)

 

Renegades! Are you ready for a real conversation about sex, sexuality and living your truth? 

Kelsey and Vanessa are taking this often taboo, always emotion-filled topic head on like only they can. 

From early childhood, many of us were told how we were supposed to act, and what it meant to be a man or woman. But what if “traditional” definitions have never felt right?

Have you wondered if other people felt that way too?

Most of us were not encouraged to express ourselves sexually. Instead, we were shamed or told that we had to fit into the mold that felt comfortable to others. There is seldom a place for curiosity without judgement.

Questions That Need Answers - Kelsey and Vanessa are going there. 

  • What are we afraid to receive when we want to tap into our own sexuality?
  • Does uninvited attention make you feel desired or unsafe?
  • Do you seek out the affection of others or do you go into hiding to ensure no one really sees you?
  • What does it mean to...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #2 - How to come back alive (by quitting what's killing you)

 

Is it okay to quit? How about faking it? Is it cool to put on a happy face and pretend that you love what you do even if it’s not completely true?

Vanessa and Kelsey are taking on another topic that we usually avoid. Quitting. What does it say about you? Is quitting good or bad?

“We’re always told not to start things we can’t finish – yet another example of traditional wisdom hooey-ing everything up. Ditto this whole notion of winners never quit and quitters never win. Winners quit all the time, because they trust the inner anarchy that says, “This is not quite right . . . yet.”

We need more attempts, less success. Success means that you picked one thing and then did it long enough to master it – which is less remarkable than it seems.

Success is often a function of persistence, not necessarily purpose.

A richer path, I believe, is made up of many false starts, not always resulting in triumph, but always resulting in...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #1 - What everyone's thinking (but not saying) about C0V!D

"Nature does not rush and yet everything else gets done," - Tea Wisdom

 

Kelsey and Vanessa discuss what many are feeling, but aren’t saying out loud. 


The global pandemic has given us a space to slow down and discover what’s really important in our lives. How crazy is it that something so disruptive can give us that space to look at things from a different angle?

 

Vanessa lays it all out about how the pandemic might have been the world's way to tell her to: wake up and slow the fuck down down! It was in the loss of work and the urgency that life demanded when she realized that she didn’t want everything to go back to the old normal. 

 

We dive in on the term, “pivot”, and how it might just be another way to shift perspectives and see what our real priorities are. 

 

Kelsey talks more on how slowing down can change the way your brain works, plus how being in high-beta brain waves mode crushed Vanessa’s...
