Finding and following what makes you feel good (with Eryn Johnson of Living Open)

Episode 18: An interview with Eryn Johnson of Living Open about finding and following what makes you feel good

As someone who’s been on the spiritual path for the better part of a decade, I am always on the lookout for people who just GET IT. You know, people who share an interest in growing and evolving and who are open to things like yoga, meditation, tarot, and energy work.

So when I came across Eryn Johnson of the Living Open podcast, I knew that she was someone I wanted to connect with and get to know better.

Eryn is a Philly-based creative, healer, and seeker who is passionate about yoga, reiki, tarot, and storytelling. In this episode, Eryn talks about how all of these things have come together in her life to help her peel away the layers and become connected with her divine truth. It’s equal parts personal journey and an introductory course on the power of yoga and mudras, energy work, and tarot.

If you’re looking to go on a spiritual journey of your own and are interested in learning more about things like reiki, tarot, mudras, and how they all tie in with yoga, this episode is for you. And if you’re also looking for others who just GET IT, I would highly encourage to reach out to Eryn online and say hello.

Learning how to develop your own intuition (with Tina Conroy)

Episode 17: Learning how to develop your own intuition (with Tina Conroy)

I sat down with Tina Conroy, A.K.A The Intuitive Woman, to talk about all things intuition. Tina is a yoga instructor, reiki master, and intuitive who first realized she could connect with Spirit and intuition as a child. Tina shares story after story of how she first connected with her gifts, her family history with intuition and prophetic dreams in particular, and how she really came into her own with intuition as an adult. 

What I love most about this episode — and I really loved all of it — is how Tina breaks down the components of intuition and shares practical tools for developing it your own life.

If you’ve ever been curious about intuition or wanted to strengthen your own skills, this episode is for you. We talk about everything from what intuition is and how it shows up for people, daily practices to help you be more in tune with your intuition, and tools to help you along the way (like meditation, crystals, and oracle cards).

The downside of daily meditation. Because even things that are supposed to be good for you can suck sometimes.

The downside of daily meditation: because even things that are supposed to be good for you can suck sometimes. #meditation #mindfulness #awareness #selfdiscovery #wellness #wellbeing #personalgrowth #personaldevelopment

In last week’s post, I shared about some of the (more pleasant or “positive”) shifts I’ve been noticing over the last two and a half months of meditating daily. I realize now (thanks to a friend and meditation mentor) that I didn’t really paint a complete picture of what’s been going on. So I wanted to take some time this week to broaden the picture and share about the downside of a daily meditation practice.

Because meditating daily isn’t (and hasn’t) been all textbook zen and perfect.

I also want to clarify that these observations are based on a decade-long practice of meditation and even longer time spent observing my thoughts and behaviors.

Additionally, it may help to consider last week’s post to be POINT, while this week’s post is COUNTERPOINT. Or light versus shadow. In other words, the things mentioned below are all opposite sides of the same coin. (I promise it will make sense as you read on. Well, I hope it does. 😂)
