From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #13 - Transformational Healing with Psychedelics



In renegade style, Kelsey and Vanessa are taking on a topic that some may see as
controversial. In fact, 2 people warned them off the topic. They aren’t here to play it safe though, they are here to share their experiences.

They are not doctors. They are not advocating you do use any type of treatment without doing your own research and without the support you need.
They are not talking about using recreationally.

They are discussing the medicine of psychedelics, used in a therapeutic format.

You’ll hear what is meant by micro-dosing and macro-dosing. Kelsey explains how
micro-dosing worked for her and why she used it. After seeing those results, she started doing research around this as a healing method.

Both Vanessa and Kelsey detail their personal experiences with a macro-dose in a
controlled and supported setting. While life changing for each of them, they also explain some of the aspects that were challenging in the moment.

Is this type of healing for you?

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #11 - PART 2 of taking your own medicine



How crazy is it to have your entire life change in a couple of weeks? Yeah.

Kelsey and Vanessa share her traumatic surgery story and the insights gathered from the experience.

Incredibly, there is grace and gratitude for all of it. Vanessa explains how she processed the physical experience. She also explains the breakthroughs she had with her family.

All because she had space and awareness for healing.

Another insight: the medical community needs the Empowered Healers Academy to help them build a culture to better support their patients.

A truth bomb moment was, "You cannot heal with you don’t feel." 
Most people are trying NOT to feel the icky emotions, but it is in feeling them that we heal them. 

There’s also news that is not surgery related and it’s super exciting!

Kelsey and Vanessa are moving. To a house they’ve never seen in person. In a place they've never been to. 

It was all divinely created.
What if everything is easy?
What if you could let...

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

Uncategorized Aug 19, 2020



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:

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.
 
Learn how this badass grew from WORRIER to WARRIOR and:
  • 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...
