You probably think of social media as “one more thing” that’s stealing your time. Or as “one more thing” you have to DO in your wellness business. But what if instead of another task, it was the ultimate mirror to fuel your personal development and evolution as a healer and leader? Today, I speak with my incredible friend and fellow entrepreneur Amanda Bucci about how to get over yourself, show up authentically on social media, and conquer imposter syndrome once and for all. Listen to learn:

🔹Why defining your “North Star” and creating a boundary document with yourself and your audience is essential for your growth, success and sanity

🔹How to “pre-process” your fear of posting and being seen on social through emotional regulation techniques 

🔹 What to do about mean comments, haters, trolls, and how to use what triggers you to fuel your personal brand and evolution

In this episode, Brett explores the mystery of the Polarity Play Kriya, one of the most popular Kundalini Kriyas inside the Uplifted Membership. She delves into the sequencing and significance of the kriya, dissecting each posture and movement. Brett explains the importance of a 40-day practice and the benefits of incorporating squats, arm movements, spirals, and heart-stimulating exercises. She also discusses the release of endorphins during the arm hold and the amplifying mudra at the end of the kriya.

  • A 40-day practice is important in Kundalini yoga for its transformative effects.

  • Squats in the Polarity Play Kriya help ground and anchor the practitioner.

  • Arm movements in the kriya stimulate the heart and balance polarities.

  • Spirals in Kundalini yoga represent natural movements and soothe the mind.

As yoga teachers (or just regular humans!), we’re often forced to put ourselves “out there” where others can judge us – and it can feel terrifying. Maybe you’re terrified to get a negative comment on social media. Or you overthink every single thing you post. Maybe you think, “Who am I to teach? Who am I to share?” Or you’re caught in a cycle of self-sabotage, worrying about what others think. In this episode:

🔹Learn about the brain’s negativity bias and strategies to cope with out

🔹Understand why your fear of being judged is normal, and how to work through it

🔹Why you *want* to repel as many people as you attract

🔹What makes a powerful brand

🌈 Live Chakra Challenge https://www.brettlarkin.com/chakralive/ 

Today, I interview one of my personal teachers and mentors, Anodea Judith PhD, about reclaiming female archetypes of leadership. It’s time for women to rise up and take on more leadership in today’s world. Because women lead differently than men, their contributions are often unrecognized, even by the women themselves. But with archetypes to guide us, women and men can recognize, honor, and activate the many ways women uniquely contribute. 

Together, we’ll dive into Anodea’s brand new 38 card archetype deck, including an empowering poetry reading on what it means to be the YOGI archetype. Discover ancient archetypes, such as the Priestess, the Oracle, or the Midwife, as well as newly emerging ones, such as the Activist, the Diva, the Yogini, or the Stateswoman. Learn:

🔹 How to awaken your innate female leadership style

🔹 The difference between an archetype and a stereotype

🔹 What does knowing about these archetypes offer you

Don’t miss this special conversation with one of my very favorite teachers. 

GUEST EXPERT: Anodea Judith, Ph.D. | www.SheRisesCards.com | https://sacredcenters.com/

Anodea Judith, Ph.D is a globally recognized teacher and the author of 9 books on chakras, yoga, psychology, social change, manifestation, and feminism, including the classics, Wheels of Life and Eastern Body-Western Mind. Her books have been translated into 28 languages and her transformational workshops have been taught all over the world. Her most recent work, SHE RISES, centers on the ascension of feminine leadership and includes 38 illustrated cards of female archetypes.

She holds a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and a doctorate in Mind-Body Health, with additional trainings in a variety of yoga and healing disciplines. As a member of the Evolutionary Leadership Council, she is passionate about evolution and the role women can play in creating a new world of justice and sustainability.
