#102 “Birthing Your Creations” with Julia Indichova of Fertile Heart and Fertile Hearted Human

Today’s show is dedicated to birthing… all things really, but we’re hyper-focused on birthing babies. My guest today, Julia Indichova, is the author of Inconceivable and The Fertile Female. Her work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Discovery Health, NPR’s 51%, Good Morning America, Tablet Magazine, Huffington Post and more. After 9/11 she initiated the 9/11 Bowing Project documented in her most recent book, One-Heart Revolution: The Perils of Positive Thinking on the Road to Peace. She is the founder of FertileHeart.com and FertileHeartedHuman.org.  

She shares the highlights of her own birthing story, how she was diagnosed with high FSH and told by the fertility doctors she had no chance of conceiving naturally. Because she wasn’t ready to give up she pursued things on her own, eventually conceiving her child and along with it, a methodology to help others birth their own children. This show is full of useful information whether you are trying to birth a child or some special project in your life. Check your energy levels, do you feel alive? Listen to your own truth, not the consciousness that’s projected upon us. Pay attention to your orphans, you’re gonna have to tune in to understand that one! Pay more attention to inspiration than information. Stop thrashing. These are just some of the nuggets that Julia teaches in her classes. She has a free talk tonight, January 8th at 8pm and a new workshop beginning on January 15th. For all of you looking to “Birth Your Next Creation and Repair the Earth,” the work following her recent book One-Heart Revolution… stay tuned to her website and Instagram account.

#99 “Eating and Speaking from the Heart” with Nutritionist Gabriela Friedman and NVC Facilitator Lyndsey Harrington

My first guest today is Gabriela Friedman.  Originally from Brazil, @gabriela_friedman has taken some pretty bold steps in her life to bring her to where she is today, a Mom, a personal trainer, and a nutritionist based in the Hudson Valley. From her own journey Gabriela discovered how a lifestyle built around healthy living and physical fitness could empower, build confidence and discipline, and add overall happiness to one’s life. Her ultimate goal is to support and motivate her clients to develop habits to live a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and exercise.

She shares about her childhood and how she came to the US in a rather unplanned way, about starting a formal path in nutrition following up on the seed that was planted by her mother early on and how she works to educate her children about how to eat to support good health. Gabriela’s philosophy is largely moderation. It’s not about restricting, but rather eating with color (not food coloring!) and vibrancy. Being active and healthy is part of Gabriela’s everyday life. My favorite advice from her is “it’s not about what you eat between Thanksgiving and New Year’s that matters, it’s what you eat from New Year’s to Thanksgiving!”

Here are the two food and eating resources I mentioned, but there are so many more! A fascinating approach to mindful eating Ram Dass, Jack Kornfield and Joseph Goldstein and Christy Harrison, Food Psych podcast.

Today’s second guest is Lyndsey Harrington. Hailing from Santa Barbara by way of Melbourne, Australia, Lyndsey has been dedicated to Nonviolent Communication since she first encountered it in 2012. Growing up with a deep love for meditation and alternative healing, she found herself yearning for a practice that could bridge the sense of loving unity she felt with the world during her meditations and maintaining that sense of connection in her everyday human life. For her, Nonviolent Communication is that bridge.

She shares how in 2012, while living in Brooklyn, Lyndsey encountered Marshall Rosenberg’s book “Nonviolent Communication” at the request of a co-living space and all who occupied it together. She was so impressed with how she observed her flat mates communicating and relating to one another that she dove in deeper. In 2015, she began studying with the New York Center for Nonviolent Communication and then, in 2017, joined their team as a workshop facilitator/trainer. She has facilitated several NYCNVC intensives, supported the organization as a course coordinator, and has led and co-led NVC practice groups in Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley where she now resides.

Lyndsey shares a bit about NVC walking us through some of the main concepts about using feelings language, slowing down, taking time to have a conversation with curiosity, rather than a confrontation, all which leads to more harmony and a meeting of everyone’s needs.  It’s largely a practice in rewiring the brain from habitual responses and re-educating how we’re trained about our own needs and the needs of others.  We all really want the same things so remember that when you’re sitting at the dinner table with your beloved family members. There’s so much practical information in our conversation, so tune in for some tips on how to move through a situation that may be triggering using principals of NVC. Hint, “strike while the iron is cool.”
