My guest, health nutritionist and author, Kelly LeVeque and I have been circling each other for quite a while, which makes me so ecstatic that we were finally able to connect. With an early interest in health (it was her favorite class in high school), she went to college and after worked eight years in the cancer and genetics field. During this time, however, Kelly still felt pulled to help others with their nutrition and did so as she was able. It wasn’t until a friend finally told her “enough already,” that she went back to college for nutritional coaching and has been seeing clients full time since 2015.

 

Kelly truly loves the science behind nutrition and uses the power of it to motivate her clients and elevate their nutrition choices. She admits that she doesn’t believe in eliminating food groups, but does stress the importance of finding the right balance for YOUR body (hint blood sugar plays a big role). We talk about several aspects of this philosophy and you can find even more of them in her new book, Body Love. I related with so much of this conversation and suspect that you will too, so be prepared for your brain to grow a little.  

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Is there any exercise you do to help yourself get really clear on what you need?
  • When a client has the same issue repeatedly is there something you always look at or are there multiple tests?
  • For people who are stuck, where do you begin?
  • How do you balance the points between sticking to it and sabotage?
  • What are some of the main side effects that you see?
  • Have you ever been addicted to caffeine?
  • What is the biggest myth you’ve run into when looking at intake forms?
  • Do you ever see where you can find joy in experiences versus food?
  • What do you do when you’re seeking comfort?
  • What have you learned about yourself because of eating cleaner?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Bio-individuality and Kelly’s pillars of nutritional needs
  • Learning to love yourself at your fit weight
  • Intuitive eating
  • How Kelly uses science to motivate clients
  • The importance and effects of insulin and cortisol
  • Side effects of different foods
  • How science can set you free with your diet
  • Avoiding the drastic “pendulum swings” and finding balance
  • Setting attainable goals
  • What Kelly does to decompress
  • Making healthier replacement comfort foods
  • Taking charge of your health and understanding it
  • How a glucometer works
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“You have to be willing to change.”

 

“If you’re balanced and satisfied, you know what you can and can’t do.”

 

“Little changes become habits.”

 

“Make it a choice, not a cheat.”

 

“Blood sugar is an indicator of what’s to come.”

Growth doesn’t feel good all the time. I’ve mentioned this before, but over the past couple months it’s been proven even more as I’ve noticed that my career and life are at totally new and different levels. Don’t get me wrong, this all feels amazing…but it’s ALL new things and quite honestly, it’s a bit overwhelming and scary. There is so much that I don’t know about where I’m at and I’ve come to the realization that I need to be OK with that.

 

“Allow yourself to be where you’re at. Allow yourself to be a beginner.”

 

This mucky, but glorious spot means more growth is on the horizon. Nothing is ever as it seems and there is always a period of adjustment. Welcome it and enjoy the ride. All those moments that feel awkward and clunky as hell? Embrace them.

 

“Find the lesson in the resistance.”

 

Sure, we could stay at the same level year after year, but deep down your spirit doesn’t want that. It craves growth and your life has unlimited levels to achieve. I mean could you imagine staying at the exact same level for the rest of your life? Me neither.

 

Don’t forget, this isn’t a race. Even if it feels like you’re not moving, or you feel too busy or things are coming and going in your life – be grateful for all of it. Everything is happening for you and you will not miss what was meant for you. Every moment has a purpose, whether it’s to clear space, slow you down or take you to the next level.

 

Root yourself in the present moment, shift your perspective and find the lesson in it. Believe that everything that is for you will find its way to you – and it will.

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • That growth doesn’t feel good all the time
  • Why it’s OK to feel like a beginner again
  • Why we need resistance for growth

I’ve been so eager to connect with today’s guest, entrepreneur, world-traveler and speaker, Regan Hillyer, ever since we briefly chatted at an event a few months ago. And I’m thrilled that dreams come true!

 

Originally from New Zealand, Regan started out on the path to become an architect, but after a fateful visualization exercise, the idea of becoming an architect left her feeling sick to her stomach, and she knew at her core it wasn’t her truth.

 

After sharing this realization with her father, she was crystal clear on what she didn’t want, but had no clue what was on the other side of that. That’s when she threw herself into personal development. The powerful shifts came a couple years into this journey, so much so that people started asking her how she did it and she got her first experience as a “coach.”

 

Since that time, Regan has helped thousands of other men and women in their self-development journeys find their truths, too. Whether it’s financial or personal, she coaches others to be true to who they are and help them build six- and seven-figure businesses in the process.

 

I could have talked on and on and with Regan – I was soaking it all up! She offers so much knowledge and even talks about her different rituals that help her stay aligned with her goals and mission. If you’re looking to gain more clarity around your goals, this episode is a great kickstart! Enjoy!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What first step would you suggest to a person who feels stuck?
  • What is something you do right now to give yourself space and time?
  • In regard to self-trust, what does it feel like and how do you know it’s time to leap?
  • Can you explain what personal abundance is to you?
  • What are some things you had to call into your life when you became financially abundant?
  • What is something you want to make sure you’ve accomplished by the end of your life?
  • What is something you’re working through or something that is scaring you right now?
  • What makes you feel most like you?
  • Do you have any rituals around speaking that help you step in?
  • What’s the best process for putting yourself out there in the beginning?
  • What did it look like when you had to start setting boundaries – both in business and relationships?
  • What are some great goal-setting tips for the New Year?
  • What’s a message you want all people to know?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Regan got into self-development and made a successful career out of it
  • Tuning in and listening to your feelings and trusting your gut if something feels wrong
  • The need for evolution and making ongoing adjustments to stay aligned with your larger vision and truth
  • Why personal and financial abundance require both external and internal work
  • The internal things Regan does to manifest financial abundance
  • The need for both a pain and pleasure motivator when working to achieve your goals
  • Regan’s rituals that help her get into speaking mode
  • The importance of choosing to be yourself in all situations and be YOU.
  • Staying completely connected and in faith through the entire day
  • The benefits of having mentors and coaches
  • Borrowing belief until you find your own
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“Your gut always knows.”

 

“You don’t get in life what you do; you get in life who you are and who you choose to be.”

 

“You can’t manifest the next level of where you’re going from a place of frustration, negativity or criticism.”

                                                       

“People manifest what they tolerate.”

 

“Listen to your truth, follow your gut and connect from that place.”

This past weekend, I attended an event for the network marking company I’m affiliated with it and it was incredible! Every year around this time I always reflect and am so grateful for the relationships it has brought into my life. I honestly never thought I would be part of this type of company (it took a long time and ton of fear), but despite the nay-sayers and my own initial reservations, I haven’t regretted it for a second.

 

So if you’re feeling fear around something and/or a pull on your soul, go for it and ignore all the background noise within and outside – I’m living proof. Trust me, after creating a podcast, network marketing and writing a book, I’ve come to trust my soul to guide me in the right direction. But in order to do so, I have to consistently keep chipping away day by day at my goals.

 

“Consistency trumps everything.”

 

If you keep showing up and learning, you will go exactly where the message on your soul means for you to go. And this often times means ignoring the protective voices in your head and of others. Ditch the stories that swirl around in your head and choose the thoughts that align with your message. And yes, we ALL have a message (that means you!).

 

“If you have a pulse, you have a message.”

 

Your message is as unique as you are, so if you haven’t pinned down exactly what it is, don’t worry, you just need to listen more closely and give it a bit more time. Even if you think that pull is something far too simple… stop and listen. Does it bring you fulfillment or happiness? Ding, ding – you’ve got a winner, and now you must protect it.

 

Full honesty? It takes a ton of bravery to create boundaries and protect your goals and message. After all, your goals are linked to your happiness. But let’s not forget faith. It is imperative that you have faith throughout the winding process of life.

 

“Faith is trusting that you’re forgiven in the face of no closure.”

 

What do I mean by this? Lately, I’ve had to say no to a lot of people who I’ve wanted to say yes to. I’m a people pleaser (old habits die hard), but I work on it every day. Sometimes when I say no or have to leave a conversation abruptly, I feel such guilt and fear that someone will be upset with me. The reality though is that they likely didn’t even notice. And if they did, they either understand or will forget it in a matter of minutes.

 

“Create boundaries around the things that are leaking your energy.”

 

Stop leaking your energy by carrying guilt for something that doesn’t exist! Give yourself the gift of closure – forgive and move on. I’m not saying that you won’t have your challenges along the way, but preserve your energy to fulfill your goals/message.

 

“Big, bold steps take energy and bravery.”

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why we need to create boundaries to protect our goals and message
  • The importance of whole-heartedly having faith and forgiveness
  • How you can gain energy back by getting closure

I don’t know about you, but I love the natural reset that occurs with a new year. It’s a way to reset our intentions and make sure our time and energy are in alignment with our goals. But often times, this extra time and energy never come around because we’ve already taken up the “extra” with anxiety and stressful thoughts that don’t serve us.

 

So today we’re talking about how we can get more time, energy and willpower. And the simplest (but not necessarily the easiest way) is to clear your mental space.

 

“Fuel the potential and focus on the possibility.”

 

This means no focusing on what could go wrong and only focusing on all the amazing things that could go right. Become aware of overwhelming thoughts. And when you feel those thoughts sneaking in redirect them to something positive. What would help you right in that moment? What do you need? A walk outside? A fresh cup of coffee? A talk with a friend? Making a to-do list? Whatever it is, do that. Seriously, find THE smallest thing that helps you feel better.

 

Next, close the loops! You know all those small, trivial things that happen day after day – let them go! For instance, you’re driving and someone cuts you off. You’re mad, and what could be a quick blip of annoyance turns into 20 minutes of fuming over a person who hasn’t thought twice about it. You just used up 20 minutes of your mental energy – and it didn’t help you (or that person) at all. Use your energy wisely. Use your thoughts to fuel your dreams, and get more drive and willpower. Don’t waste your mental space on a bad driver or something equally as simple.

 

Now I’m not saying that you can’t ever get mad – it happens! But we must remember to shift out of those low-level (draining) thoughts as quickly as possible. Think of low-level thoughts as energetic sandbags. For each low-level thought, add a sandbag and carry it around. Another low-level thought? Add another… Imagine if we never ditched these energetic sandbags, how weighed down we’d feel.

 

We need to close the open loops that are draining our mental batteries by forgiving and getting rid of any indecision in the process. Once you do, you’ll replace any pain, indecision, guilt or shame with more peace, ease, space and power in your mind. And I don’t know about you, but that’s my favorite space to be in.

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why the new year is such a great time for a reset
  • How to create more time, energy and space in your brain
  • What it means to close open loops
  • And much more

Peta Kelly's most favourite title is HUMAN AF. She is a conscious entrepreneur, author, speaker and philanthropist. She was recently featured in Forbes Magazine and was just ranked by Inc Magazine in the Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs changing the world.

 

She’s is an unbridled soul and barefoot bandit on a mission to unleash the jeaniius of GenY’s globally.

She dropped being a PhD science nerd at the age of 22 and went on the pursuit of that ‘thing’ that was calling her higher. That's when she found her first business pursuit in network marketing and She became a 7 figure a year earner in Isagenix by the age of 26. Her network marketing journey led her to her bigger, more global soul work and now she’s building a global enterprise, Jeaniius – a global hub of nakedly brilliant people, mobilized to create change for our planet through conscious enterprise and magical collaborations.

 

Peta teaches the new way to live, lead, earn and give and what excites her the most is bringing her brilliant, badass generation together as one team and one family so that we can gift our planet and our kiddies, an environment where they can thrive. Peta is an angel gifter and a silent investor, and thrives on expanding the cycle of abundance and contribution, especially when it allows young people to kick ass in their endeavors. A millennial with a love of millennials, Peta speaks on global stages, barefoot, to tens of thousands of people, and to millions through her various platforms, sharing visionary messages of conscious living to move hearts and minds to what’s possible.

 

Self-described as an alien, a “vessel” for what needs to flow through her, Peta is the creator of The New Way Live, Jeaniius and The Supercharged and she’s got her first book on the way in early 2018.

Peta was recently featured on The Rise Up movie with Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Danielle LaPorte, Gabby Bernstein, Marie Forleo, Tony Robbins, The Dalai Lama and more.

 

She's a new Mum to her beautiful daughter Sol and has now found a new supersized passion for empowering women to create a beautiful pregnancy and birth experience.

One of my favorite (and most frequent) guests, Gabby Bernstein is back, and I know you’re all just as thrilled as I am. We even joked that she should be a co-host (you never know, right?). Today we’re talking about judgment, and I personally couldn’t agree more with the importance of talking about this topic. Judgment is the root of so many problems and whether we’re judging others or ourselves, it’s so bad that we barely realize we’re doing it.

 

Believing that deep down we are all loving, kind and compassionate people, Gabby felt called to write her newest book, Judgment Detox, in an effort to explain how judgment separates us from our true nature and instead makes us feel guilty, which in turn makes us judge more, which again makes us feel guilty and so on – the judgment cycle.

 

Fortunately, she has a six-step process that is virtually guaranteed to help us all out and it could not come at a better time for the entire world. Don’t miss out on this enlightening episode as she gives us a few sneak peeks of the wisdom in her latest book as well as a look into her creative process, asking for help and her hopes for a baby in 2018. I can’t wait for you to hear (and share) this beautiful conversation with others!

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • Can you share why you wrote Judgment Detox and what it is?
  • Was judgment something that kept coming up for you so much that you wrote the book?
  • When there’s an addiction to something, what do you think it’s serving and how do we interrupt the pattern?
  • What creative process do you use that honors the messages you write about?
