If you’ve been around for the last couple months, you know my big news – I became a mother! I love it so much – and I don’t shy away from talking about the hard parts. Motherhood can bring about a new type of anxiety and a new type of depression. And many women – including me – even experience a feeling of distance from our babies that is scary and confusing and so. Damn. Hard.
In this episode of The PurposeGirl Podcast, I’m fortunate to be joined by Chiara Townley, a woman who caught my attention because she wrote an article entitled “It Took Me Months to Love My Baby and I Don’t Feel Guilty About It” in Good Housekeeping magazine. I mean, HELLO?! It was like she took my story, my feelings, and shared it. In this episode, Chiara and I talk about the challenges of becoming a new mom, and how she moved past the depression to find inner peace, plus how all of us can find inner peace through any and every challenge.
In this episode, Chiara and I discuss:
- The overwhelming, confusing, sad feelings many women experience when they become mothers and how those feelings are valid and normal.
- Discovering your essence.
- How to discover and live your soul purpose.
- The connection between the physical manifestation of our fears, anxieties, and depressions and how they connect to the chakras, our mindset, and energy fields.
- How affirmations of self-love can heal you as a woman, and a mother.
- She leads me through a breathing and energy meditation that you can follow along.
