    The more I know, the more I am aware that I don't know, and I am finally feeling safe in saying, "I don't know" and open to exploring it all…But one thing I actually do know is when you feel safe to confidently express your desires, revealing what you actually want, being honest with yourself, listening to your body, and intentionally communicating these desires with your sexual partners, you will live a more authentic, fulfilling life both inside and outside of the bedroom. Kimi Inch is a kink expert, professional dominatrix, kink/BDSM educator, published author, and somatic healer. Kimi will teach us all about sexual care, self-care, healing, and wholeness through a unique approach that blends conscious kink, sexuality, and somatic therapeutic techniques. She will give you a chance to access the wisdom of your body for deep and lasting change — experience healing around your sexual health, intimacy, and relationships. Kimi uses Conscious Kink™ as a way individuals and couples to explore various sides of themselves, deal with shame or guilt, and address dysfunction or addiction. This practice brings the shadows into the light in order to move towards resolution and remind you of your magnificence. Let's get ENLIGHTENED about CONSCIOUS KINK together. Sit back, relax, put your phone on do not disturb…because you're going to be *tied up* for a little while!

    "HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT A SIN" with Colby Martin — Pastor Fired for Affirming the LGBTQIA+ Community — Coming Out & the Church — Questioning the Bible & Religious Authority — What does the Bible actually say about being gay and polyamory?

    Colby Martin bravely answers hard questions that the Christian church avoids like the mosaic plague or worse, aggressively responds to with clobber verses meant to undermine the identities of the LGBTQIA+ community: Can one be a true Christian and actually believe that being queer is NOT a sin?  Having experienced his fair share of pain and rejection from mainstream Christianity, Colby is awake to the flaws, tragic missteps, and misplaced earnestness that too often define the direction of the church. Yet God's vision for creation as revealed in Jesus still compels him to remain in progressive Christianity. Colby is the author of two books (UnClobber: Rethinking our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality; and The Shift: Surviving and Thriving after Moving from Conservative to Progressive Christianity); he hosts a podcast with his wife, “The Kate & Colby Show,” and he and his wife founded and lead a progressive, LGBTQIA+ affirming Christian church in San Diego called Sojourn Grace Collective. This episode covers topics like: 🔥Being fired by a church for supporting the LGBTQIA+ community  🏳️‍🌈Adopting with inclusion theology and disproving clobber verses 💋 Can you can be POLYAMOROUS and be a Christian? ⚓️Advice to parents of queer children  ⛪️Can you *actually* be a “true Christian” and believe that being gay isn't a sin and stay in church? 💜Sharing what it's like to have a bisexual wife as a pastor 🙋‍♀️Questioning pastors and religious authority — the two questions you need to ask directly to your leaders to find out if your church is *actually* all-loving and affirming or insidiously bait and switching  🙏🏽Reckoning with deconstruction and perhaps reconstruction ✝️Exploring the idea that “Not all Christians” are part of the problem Recommended Resources: 1:1 Coaching with Sophia SOPHIA'S LIVE, VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS: Join the live, virtual Curious & Cumming Out - Live, Virtual Sex & Sexuality Workshop  Join the live, virtual  Releasing Religious Indoctrination Workshop  ⛓🙌This workshop is for you if you're ready to take the next step in releasing the fear of sin and shame surrounding your sexuality and evolving spirituality as you leave traditional religion. ❓What to expect:  ✨3 hours of intentional time together ✨Healing through shared experiences  ✨Quantum healing through guided mediation ✨Real world application: a closing embodiment exercise to take with you Learn more about Colby Martin: Get in touch: colbymartinonline.com UnClobber Online Course: https://courses.unclobber.com UnClobber the Book (2nd Edition): https://amzn.to/3Jk628p The Kate & Colby Show: thekateandcolbyshow.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/colbymartin/ It's time to set yourself FREE, Lovely One!  Thank you for supporting my labor of love by sharing screenshots of the podcast, subscribing, and by pledging to contribute.

    What's it like when you put an atheist and spiritual human together on a podcast? We just might have more in common than you think...starting with religious trauma. “Eve_WasFramed” is an atheist ex-vangelical, a little nickname for us humans leading the ex-evangelical church movement. This radiant, all grown up and evolved minister's kid has made it her purpose to expose the holes in theology and share her journey from being the perfect, good devout Christian girl to a bold, good atheist. I'm sure being the child of Christian ministers made for a childhood packed with religious trauma. She even spent her teen years and early 20s as a worship leader. Eve now spends her time raising awareness for those that have suffered from religious trauma at the hands up of the evangelical church and speaks out against the harmful and toxic theologies she herself experienced.  This episode covers topics like: Purity culture Religious trauma Fear-based theology  Christian nationalism LA christian celebrity culture Evolving morality (from a spiritual and atheist perspective) Pro-life vs. Pro-choice arguments Soothing trauma triggers Join my workshop: https://coaching.sophiaspallino.com/Releasing-Religious-Trauma-Workshop I am excited to lend Eve my platform to share this perspective, even if it's different than mine. As many of you know. I grew up in purity culture and evangelical indoctrination too...and I've invited all of you along with me on this journey as I venture away from Christianity and sexual purity ideals into inter-spirituality and sexual liberation. I truly believe we can only heal as deeply as we are willing to acknowledge and feel.  That's why my dear friend, Daniel, and I are hosting a✨Religious Trauma Releasing Workshop✨ and I want YOU to be there.  This workshop is for YOU if you're ready to take the next step in releasing the fear of sin and shame surrounding your sexuality and evolving spirituality as you leave traditional religion. 🙏🏽This will be a safe and confidential place to reveal and heal, as we share about understanding sin, hell, queerness, purity, guilt, shame, and questioning religious authority altogether…ultimately embracing our sovereignty and taking responsibility to heal together.  ❓What to expect:  ✨2 hours of intentional time together ✨Identifying the root of shame ✨Demystifying guilt  ✨Healing through shared experiences  ✨Quantum healing through guided mediation led by Daniel ✨Real world application: a closing embodiment exercise to take with you that I will lead 🗓 When is the LIVE workshop?

    I cannot believe I about to share this with the world, but everyone wants to know what happened to the lady I fell for, who pretty much made me realize I was just a lesbian, and gave me the courage to leave a man I genuinely cared for. I will tell you what happened, no WE will tell you what happened. Here is a raw conversation between me and my ex-girlfriend…Literally a play by play of our relationship and first time sleeping together. And I am willing to share it with the world because no matter what you do, whether you are a therapist, a doctor, a stay at home mama, a teacher, a business woman, a life coach life like me, or you simply feel you have to “have your shit together” for your world…You need to hear that love and lust is messy…That changing your mind or exploring your sexuality could disappoint people…that leaving a relationship might rock your boat…BUT IT'S ALL WORTH IT. This episode is for you. Straight, gay, in between…for YOU. To inspire you to do whatever you're scared to do, but can't fully be alive without. I want you to know discovering who you are, understanding your preferences, and evolving is safe to do at ANY AGE (even at my ex's age of 51). You are allowed to shift and change your mind…and THAT is how we both got here…Here in this perfect present moment where all is well and we are GRATEFUL for the journey we had together, even if we are apart. So here we are sharing the love, the passion, the sex, and the fall…Enjoy the show!  🚩 I desired the experience over my sense of safety, and I knew it the whole time. My gut never lies to me, she'd never give me her heart, but I kept walking the path. Some could say why would you do that to yourself? How could you as a dating coach?! 😈Listen to the whole episode to understand…I KNEW what I was doing the whole time. But in a nutshell, I sovereignly chose to be emotionally annihilated so that I could experience physical bliss for the very first time.  ✨It was a choice.  ✨I'm glad I chose it. ✨I'm glad I met her. ✨I'm glad I tasted her. ✨I'm glad I tasted freedom. Ms. California was the catalyst girlfriend God knew I needed. To be honest, the experience of lust motivated me so much, to set myself free, and just be gay. The lust put a fire under my ass to make hard decisions. 🙏🏽I hope this episode proves it's safe to have hope, to be a fool for love, to leave good for great, to follow your truth, to live authentically if you're afraid to be queer, and to perceivably “lose” in love. The winner doesn't take it all. When you experience heartbreak, find the “gift” in the pain, and be grateful for every experience. The contrast is your gift.  💡 IF SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS GOING THROUGH A BREAKUP OR PROCESSING THEIR SEXUALITY, please share this episode with them. There is light at the end of the tunnel.  This episode covers topics like: 📖 Our “lust” story  💦 Our first time together  😈 Our age gap…she could be my mother! 🏳️‍🌈 Processing our queerness late in life 💔 Our conscious ending  ❤️‍🩹 Our conscious healing  It's time to set yourself FREE, Lovely One!  Stream MY HEALING: a forgiveness anthem that I wrote and recorded: https://sophiaspallino.trac.co/sophiaspallinomyhealing Learn more about me and what I do: https://www.SophiaSpallino.com Follow me on Instagram for inspiring real-life stories everyday: https://www.instagram.com/sophiaspallino/ Shop my favorite books and card decks here: http://bit.ly/SoulBooks If you are seeking wisdom & guidance, branding/social media tips, dating advice, a breakup breakthrough session, or a card reading, I'd be honored to coach you: https://sophiaspallino.com/mentorship

    When we remember our worthiness, we connect differently. Whether you're single or in a relationship, you will enjoy this conversation about how to increase sexual intimacy, cultivate conscious communication in relationships, and practice self-love. Let's sink into our heart-space with Toni Jones. For over six years, Toni Jones has served as a well being leader and mental health advocate for women and youth. Her passion for helping people consciously talk to themselves better combined with her talent of spoken word and writing music has made her the most iconic Affirmation Musician on the charts today. Toni hopes to inspire women to become more conscious about their well being and self-talk in a culture that drowns the feminine energy in masculine "workaholism," specially when it comes to entrepreneurship, self-empowerment, and sexuality. On March 19, 2019, during Women's History Month she launched “Affirmations for The Grown Ass Woman”.  In November of 2021, she released "Me Vs. All of Me Affirmations of Self Love." Her music is incredibly powerful. In fact at the end of this episode, I will play one of my favorite affirmation songs. During our time together, you will feel inspired to be consciously committed to your well being inside out — starting with the way you talk or SING to yourself!

    WE BROKE UP -- THIS IS WHY: I AM A LESBIAN -- SOPHIA AND ROBERT'S BREAKUP STORY

    Play Episode Listen Later Dec 2, 2021


    The raw video you are about to see or podcast you are about to listen to began as a video I recorded for myself to document my journey and my reasons why I am doing what I am doing. I knew I'd have to look back on it when I feel sad and maybe begin to question my reasons.   I recorded this on November 19, 2021, three days after I made a very big decision to leave Robert, a man I have loved for three years, after coming to the realization that I just can't live a life that's a lie. In full disclosure, I truly believed I was bi my entire life…until the weekend of November 12th when I finally met the beautiful woman who I cultivated a very deep connection with for 44 days…this wasn't a meet her and hookup thing. It was a real relationship with someone who is very special to me (and Robert absolutely gave me permission to do so).  I experienced “everything” with her, and on our third day together, I had a panic attack because a veil was lifted and I looked at my desire and heart honestly. When the truth clicked, there was no going back…I knew in my body and soul, I was never truly s*xualy attracted to men and I just didn't know the difference before. (Hello, Comphet! Google it…).  As for romantic attraction, I truly believed I was attracted to men in that way, which would still make me technically bisexual — but even if that WAS the case, I now realize I have zero desire to ever have a romantic relationship with a man ever again. It was always platonic…and I never knew it until I felt the opposite.  Why? On Sunday the 14th, I had an awakening I cannot deny. To deny this realization would make me a liar. And I haven't lied…I truly didn't KNOW what it felt like to be in love with a woman, as I've only had crushes before.  I knew the moment this precious woman picked me up at the airport with flowers that something was drastically different in my tummy. I was too nervous to even turn to look at her gorgeous face and make eye contact. For the first time in my life, I wanted to touch a human, everywhere, and had to restrain myself. I've never felt that way before. These were butterflies of intense attraction to one another that I've never felt before with a man. Here I was looking at a lady like I have never looked at a man, feeling things I never felt for a man, and my body responding in a way it's never responded to a man.  By Sunday, I came to the devastating realization that I've only ever loved a man like a friend…my whole life played like a movie in my head, going fast, swirling, and pausing at evidence for me to understand I've always been this way. I had never felt s*xual desire FOR men, just a desire to connect sexually because — hello — libido.  What I can promise you though, is with Robert, it was DIFFERENT. For the first time in my life, I felt cherished and respected by a man. I felt SAFE. So yes, I enjoyed every minute of our s*x life — but again, I didn't desire a man like I now KNOW in my bones I desire a woman. I simply didn't know the difference.  With all this being said, Robert deserved honesty. So I sat with myself in panic from Sunday to Tuesday…came home…and Wednesday, the 17th, I told him the truth. I was about to say it out loud when he beat me to the punch. He knows me so well that HE TOLD ME THE TRUTH with a question mark. “You're a lesbian, right?” I lay in the bathtub watching our entire lives for three years flash before my eyes. I saw every hope and dream burn up and I was the one who dropped the match. I felt my stomach get queasy with the abandonment he must be feeling. This all happened so fast. Why? Not telling him after coming to the realization only 4 days before would make me a liar by withholding information — to him, to you, to everyone. So here I am telling you — I realize I am a lesbian. Please show me grace. This has been a very emotional time. But I know in my soul, this is the only decision I could make that honors me, my truth, Robert, and the world. 🥺Sophia

Allow Reverend Sydney Finn to inspire the DEVOTION required to get into alignment and usher in the new year (and every new day) with ease.  My dear friend Reverend Sydney Finn is here on Enlightened for an encore! Words alone will never be able to fully capture or describe the work of Reverend Sydney Finn. Being a gifted intuitive since childhood, she navigated a severely abusive and traumatic upbringing which led her to pursue psychology and other healing modalities. After quickly recognizing the limitations of psychology, she found herself undergoing professional training as a psychic and intuitive healer. Today, she is an intuitive guide, speaker, podcast host, and group facilitator. After conducting thousands of intuitive readings worldwide with clients on 6 continents, she now leads people to their highest potential, energetic optimization, and supports her audience in making a masterpiece of the lives they lead. While her emphasis is on energetic mastery, her work is centered around connecting to your own spirit, sacred desires, and unique relationship with God. She is the bridge between your current experience and infinite, limitless possibilities. You can find more support in learning about boundaries and how to say  “No” on Sydney's podcast, Sunday Messages. The episode you should listen to is titled, “No.” Lastly If you would like to indulge in our first episode together, back when Enlightened was such a different podcast when I just started, find my episode entitled “Getting into Tarot Cards and the WooWoo World of Spirituality.” Without further ado, let's bask in the wisdom that is Reverend Sydney Finn… This episode covers topics like: Ushering in the new year successfully  What happens after “death” and between lives?

    "A CULT COVERED MY BODY, BUT NOW I AM EMBODIED" with Amanda Rose -- Healing from Purity Culture & Modesty Indoctrination -- Feminine Embodiment -- Spirituality -- Sexuality -- Personal Development --

    Play Episode Listen Later Nov 9, 2021


    Many of us have experienced the damaging effects of religious indoctrination, and hearing the stories of others help us feel less alone and heal just a little bit more. In this episode, Amanda Rose shares how a cult forced her into intense modesty and purity culture as a child, how this has effected her sexuality as a woman, and how she is healing. May this sweet soul be a mirror revealing that you too have the power to love your body, feel safe in your sexuality, and feel whole, regardless how  traumatic, sheltered, or confining the past may have been. Amanda spent her childhood on a family farm in Florida, where she was raised by a very loving and dysfunctional family. Think... "The Yearling" meets "The Waltons" meets "Cheaper By The Dozen" meets "Duck Dynasty"...and you've basically got it! When she was 12 years old, her family moved to Central America. That's where this hillbilly of a gal was plunged deep into a cult and was subjected to rigorous religious brainwashing. Psychological, spiritual, physical, and emotional abuse...she knows it all too well. Amanda sunk into a dark well of patriarchal purity culture and oppressive submission dogma to put it mildly.  Her adolescent experiences in Central America and in the religious cult spun the narrative that women were not to be trusted, especially with men or in relationships. A woman's body was dangerous at best and property at worst, and sex was just to meet a mans "needs."  Her journey out of that cult and through her healing path has been wild and crazy, but it's led her to where she is now.  Today Amanda works with women who are ready for the initiation into their feminine radiance, and sovereign, embodied self leadership in the three arenas of:  - sexuality and embodied sensuality  - healing from trauma on a somatic and quantum level  - rewilding your soul and reconnecting you to your wombspace This episode covers topics like: -saving sex until AFTER marriage -going from modesty culture being covered from head to toe to loving her body fully  -what's it like to be indoctrinated into a cult in your teenage years -"safe sex" is more than just about physical protection, but emotional connection  -spiritual abuse and oppression over women  -the harmfulness of purity culture and conservative Christianity -how purity culture and submission teachings/dogma affects your marriages, honeymoons, and sex  -what is sexual embodiment?  -how can sexual embodiment help women heal that are coming out of purity culture?  -the common thread between orgasm and worship Stay in touch with Amanda: Follow on IG: https://www.instagram.com/amandaarlenerose  Join her group coaching container: https://www.mywombspace.com Learn more about Amanda's work: https://www.wholenessmirroring.com   I hope you benefit from ENLIGHTENED, the podcast by me, Sophia Spallino, an audible experience that leaves you feeling at peace, encouraged, and in touch with your soul.

    Were there really queer lovers in the Bible? Is being gay a sin? Maybe you're deconstructing & want to know. Maybe you've deconstructed completely & don't care what the Bible says anymore. Either way, it's great to know your facts because if you actually read your Bible & do the research, God doesn't hate queers...Just ask Je-Gay-Sus! Jegaysus (he/they) the popular TikToker, coined “The King of Queens.” He uses his voice, and his unique looks (his gorgeous head of curly hair, exotic eye makeup, and rainbow “Biblical attire”) to discuss deep, controversial theological topics. I love his content because he takes concepts and stories from the Bible that people think they know all about (because we may have never questioned the stories we were spoon-fed since we were indoctrinated children in Sunday school), and spills the tea by putting the sacred text into context of historical times as well as digging into the archives of mistranslations that were often strategically placed by men with hidden agendas to oppress marginalized people, like women, queers, and people of color.  Known for his sassy sense of humor and flamboyant gay pride, Jegaysus is an icon of the larger evangelical deconstruction movement who inspires his audience to think critically, ask hard questions that offend the blindly indoctrinated, and question everything they have ever been taught.  GET MY SKINCARE RECOMMENDATIONS IN ORDER OF APPLICATION FOR BOTH DAY AND NIGHTTIME when you join my email list for FREE  This episode covers topics like: Religious trauma to self love journey Coming out gay as a child in the church Experiencing GAY CONVERSION THERAPY Defending yourself against Christian clobber verses a Was Mary Magdalene even a prosititute?

    Exploring astrology as a tool to learn more about yourself and others can be complicated, but it doesn't have to be. Debra Silverman breaks astrology down into the four elements, much like nature, and everything just makes sense. Finally. Sheesh!  Debra Silverman is part astrologer, part psychologist, part comedian and ALL REAL. She helps people turn on their own inner observer, to see the things they say and do in a totally objective way. Over the past 40 years of private practice, Debra has helped thousands of individuals achieve emotional health and wisdom based on their unique personality and the four elements: water, air, earth, and fire. I was always that kid that stayed inside while the groups of other kids went out to play…all because I wanted to hang out with the moms.

    SKINCARE ROUTINES & SELF LOVE: WHAT THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW with Cassandra Bankson -- Skincare Secrets -- Skincare Myths -- Plastic Surgery -- Personal Development --

    Learning to love the skin you're in isn't always easy, especially in a society that hates aging and acne. BUT, duality is an illusion. You can take care of yourself, and still be a feminist, sovereign woman. However, it's so important to understand WHY we feel the need to enhance our skin and bodies, as well as HOW to take care of our skin and begin an affordable, maintainable routine. Before you read any further, you should know that not one recommendation is sponsored or MLM. We aren't here to sell you a dang thing. We are sharing this conversation because trying to figure it all out on our own can be time consuming, and frustrating (especially when you're wasting money on expensive products that aren't working for your own skin). So let's learn from Skin-spert Cassandra Bankson! Typically, I talk with guests about mindset, inner peace, self love, spirituality, overcoming religious trauma, relationships…but many of you follow me on Instagram where I am always talking about my skincare and aesthetics regimens. I so appreciate that people come to me for advice, but I am not an aesthetician, so I invited my favorite SKIN EXPERT on Enlightened the podcast! My radiant guest is Cassandra Bankson! She is a YouTube vlogger, online personality, social media powerhouse, model, writer, spokesperson, and activist with an online audience of over 2 million across all digital platforms. She is best known as a skincare expert who once struggled with severe chronic acne as a teen model--and her honest, authentic, and vulnerable videos depicting her skincare journey have empowered her to use her platform as a positive disruptor in the beauty industry. As a medical aesthetician and industry expert for the past decade, she works alongside dermatologists and and acts as a liaison— breaking down complicated medical jargon to help explain the products, procedures, and treatments in ways that anyone can understand and apply to their own beauty routines.  GET MY SKINCARE RECOMMENDATIONS IN ORDER OF APPLICATION FOR BOTH DAY AND NIGHTTIME when you join my email list for FREE  Today's show covers topics like: Going from self loathing to self love  Being a model and influencer while managing adult acne Why she posts edited AND raw images The benefits of choosing AFFORDABLE skincare  Learn about your skin type and the products it craves Best advice for each skin type (dry, moderate, oily, and acne-prone skin) Summer skincare vs winter skincare The dangers of aesthetic medical procedures like boob jobs and butt lifts Skincare advice for dry, medium, or oily skin The correlation between mental health and skincare  Stay in touch with Cassandra: Follow on IG: https://www.instagram.com/cassandrabankson/ Join her on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@cassandrabankson Subscribe on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHj2_6e0Y2YdzHZDkkLa53Q With infinite love and gratitude, I pray that peace be with you. xo Sophia (@SophiaSpallino on Instagram) STREAM MY HEALING NOW: Listen to MY HEALING: a forgiveness anthem that I wrote and recorded: https://sophiaspallino.trac.co/sophiaspallinomyhealing Watch the Lyric Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Da4M2KKGbF0 Learn more about me and what I do: https://www.SophiaSpallino.com Follow me on Instagram for inspiring real-life stories everyday: https://www.instagram.com/sophiaspallino/ Pledge to support my show: http://bit.ly/SupportEnlightened Shop my merch: https://www.SophiaSpallino.com/shop Shop my favorite books and card decks here: http://bit.ly/SoulBooks If you would like to download my TikTok/Reels or Podcast Start Up class, here is the link: https://sophiaspallino.com/mentorship/ If you are seeking wisdom & guidance, branding/social media tips, dating advice, a breakup breakthrough session, or a card reading, schedule a one-on-one virtual meeting with me: https://sophiaspallino.com/mentorship

    What's it like to come out of a straight marriage with children, THEN choose a lesbian relationship? Curious about non-traditional relationship dynamics and living beyond the hetero-norm? Let's listen to Haley Benglan's beautiful love story!  While exploring my sexuality, I have realized there is still SO MUCH more for me to learn because for so long, I suppressed my sexuality and even avoided learning about the gay experience for many years of my life (out of religion-induced fear). Now that I am aware, I am committed to breaking down this internalized homophobia by learning and hearing other's stories. That's why today's guest is so special, and I can't wait to share her "straight marriage to queer love" story and what it's like to be a lesbian mother. Haylee is a bi-sexual woman whose mission is to empower others to choose their own happiness and be BRAVE with every single thing in their lives! She's a passionate entrepreneur with a giving spirit and a no-nonsense, yet positive toward life. Haylee and her wife, Paige, have become Instagram influencers, known by their hashtag #TwoMoms. Together they have an apparel and gymnastics company, Be Brave, that inspires women, especially mothers to be brave and raise brave children. Today's show covers topics like: Leaving an abusive marriage and being a single mom Coming out after being married to a man Being one of two moms Choosing your OWN happiness  Exploring polyamory  Loving and accepting your sexuality Being in a lesbian relationship and being a mom  Using the word “NO” more often and setting boundaries Living out loud regardless of fear as a queer woman in business  Stay in touch with Haley: Follow Haley and Paige on IG: https://www.instagram.com/paiylee Shop Be Brave Supply Co: http://www.bebravesupplyco.com Follow Be Brave Supply Co: https://www.instagram.com/bebravesupplyco Follow Be Brave Athletics: https://www.instagram.com/bebravehaylee It's time to set yourself FREE, Lovely One!  The love of God inside of me honors the love in you.

    I wrote this song for me & I wrote this for you, so it can heal whatever needs closure in your life. Inspired by the teachings of Jesus, A Course In Miracles, The Way of Mastery, The Sophia Code, Louise Hay, Madelyn Moon, & the Ho'oponono prayer, I present to you MY HEALING: A FORGIVENESS ANTHEM. This is for you to listen to when you realize it's time to let go for the very first time. That initial moment you let go is very courageous, and should be a celebrated, sacred time. This is also for you to listen to when you're triggered AGAIN…Because believe me, forgiveness is not a one time thing. When something really traumatizes us, & we are reminded of it, even when we think we have moved past it, we have another opportunity to forgive that pain.  So beautiful friends, I invite you to listen to MY HEALING, & let the words wash over you like a cleansing rain. Let the sounds of burning away the old usher in your new beginning. May the soothing sounds of my harp bathe you in Divine Light, so you can see who you truly are…Love.  And let us remember: love chooses forgiveness even when it's hard. So put in some headphones (to experience the full energetic effect), close your eyes, listen, & let the pain dissolve. Hooponopono: “I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” — The Hawaiian Ho'oponopono prayer  I am launching a Breakup Breakthrough program... This isn't for you if: -You are hoping to get back together and willing to waste your precious life waiting on someone who isn't there for you now or enthusiastically choosing you  -You are willing to settle in your love life again -You want to continue to feel your pain and live in a fantasy world that “it might work out,” or “they might come back,” only to be let down again This is for you if: -You are ready to get over this heartbreak because you've consciously grieved and given yourself adequate time to just be sad and feel it all  -You don't want to waste another precious present moment of your life living in the past or the illusion of the future  -You are ready to fully, completely, sovereignly let go and accept wholeness and get clear on your desires before you manifest your next lover IF this sounds like you, please shoot me a dm or email Sophia@SophiaSpallino.com and I will put you on my waiting list.  If you feel comfortable to share how the show is touching your heart, please leave a rating and review on iTunes or the Apple Podcast App. It will only take a minute, but genuine reviews are vital to the success of my show, so please review by tapping here.

    Wanna tap into your inner "bad girl"?  Let's vibe (keep your head in the gutter) with Holly Sonders, one of the most popular online models who is making MILLIONS capitalizing on the male gaze. Today's episode is totally raw girl talk all about our sex lives, attraction, modern feminism, and her journey from being a small town girl to literally running her wildly successful very OWN "Only Fans."  Holly Sonders is a brilliant business woman, broadcaster, and model in her early thirties. After a decade in the sports broadcasting industry, working with big networks like Fox, NBC, and the Golf Channel, she decided to do what she loves and truly be who she is — not what a network decides FOR her to be.  Holly believes “Girls can be smart AND hot,” and she proves this with her brilliant marketing and business strategy that essentially cuts out the middle man in the sexy modeling industry (aka cutting out the middle man like Only Fans, and keeping more profit for herself). She is now her own boss, has numerous employees, and makes millions selling her R rated art. Being sexual is beautiful, and I think this authentic, scandalous conversation will help you release a layer of shame. It's a safe place here to be your most sexual, authentic self! Today's show covers topics like: -Going from a wholesome small town girl to what haters people would call a “porn star” -Making MILLIONS by capitalizing on the male gaze -Polyamory / open relationships -Her scandalous modeling industry -Building a business beyond "Only Fans" Handling criticism  -Controversy of plastic surgery  -Analyzing our attraction for men and women -Loving partners who are broken from past relationships  -The honest fear of aging as women -and of course, sex toys and fetish talk  Stay in touch with Holly Sonders: Follow her on IG: https://www.instagram.com/holly.sonders/ Explore her website: https://hollysonders.com It's time to set yourself FREE, Lovely One!  The love of God inside of me honors the love in you.

    Feeling judged for being the truest you? Seeking inspiration in others who have overcome caring what others think? Allow Nick Norcia to share his story and why he creates TikToks that create cathartic relief and community. Nick Norcia is a loving 25 year old with a BIG personality. He is a southern boy from Gerogia living his best life Los Angeles and working in entertainment. Over the past year, he has amassed over 230k followers creating funny content with meaningful messages weaved in. I love how Nick uses humor to tackle tough topics that help us all introspect and process the trauma we have all experienced as a collective this past year, and perhaps since we were children. Nick shamelessly hashtags racism and religion, combining divisive topics into comedic skits everyone can laugh at and learn from. One of my favorite videos is Nick performing as a flamboyant, shirtless Satan with a backdrop of fire as he “calls” God on the phone asking why His followers do bad things…Like how can bad people claim to be Christians or Christ-like? How can racist people claim to be good? How can homophobic people think they love God, but hate others?  Nick Norcia exposes the truth with the graceful tool of comedy. His art is so relatable, and for many who have experienced religious trauma or judgement for being gay, cathartic.  Today’s show covers topics like: Coming out in the LGBTQIA+ community in the south Following your passions and living an unapologetic life What is coping with religious trauma like?

    CRYSTAL HEALING & SEXY ENERGY with The Metaphysical Maven, Magdalena McClellan -- Improve Your Sex Life with Crystals -- Attract Love with Crystals -- How Do Crystals Work? -- Healing, Manifesting, and Clearing with Crystals -- Trusting Your Intuition

    Can crystals actually enhance your life...Even your sex life? Allow Magdalena McClella, the METAPHYSICAL MAVEN, to help us to understand the magical and practical uses of crystals! Magdalena McClella has always had an affinity for stones and crystals. For years, she  studied them extensively and took notes of her own experiences through trial and error. There came a point in her life where she could not deny the power of these gorgeous stones and what they were doing. Crystals helped her work through the inevitable ups and downs of life, from little every day stressors to more major, unexpected crises. Naturally, Magdalena is drawn to helping others, so she was compelled to make gemstone jewelry for friends and family because the magic was just too good to keep to all to herself. Eventually, she started gridding people’s homes with larger stones — both of which resulted in rave reviews and some pretty incredible healing results. This all paved the way for the birth of “My Metaphysical Maven,” her online space for intuitive readings, crystal prescriptions, courses, gorgeous jewelry, and retreats that have all been carefully designed to provide clients with clarity and understanding on the deepest soul level. Today’s show covers topics like: woo woo vs. reality...Do crystals really have power? how to trust your intuition? how do crystals actually metaphysically work? how to work with crystals for beginners?  how can crystals help clear chakras? what crystal aligns with each chakra? how can crystals inspire a better sex life?  what crystals aid in creating a clean slate and clearing energy? what crystal is best for healing heartbreak? what crystal helps manifest love?
