#020 Fierce Loving for Your Body, Life & Self with Amber Krzys

 

 

We live in a world of duality, opposites.  Light and dark.  Feminine and masculine.  Human and Spirit.  Good and bad. Yin and yang.  Today on the show, we are talking about Fierce Loving.  I imagine when you first read those two words together, you may think, “how do those words fit.”  Well, you are going to find out how beautifully they compliment each other to describe a powerful way of being.  Fierce Loving, created by my friend and today’s guest Amber Krzys, is having quite an impact in how I live my life, and relate to myself and others.  I know it will for you as well.

“Every explicit duality is an implicit unity.” – Alan Watts. 

“Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one’s being, but of integration of the contraries.” – Carl Jung

Our lives are a journey of owning and integrating all parts of who we are, even when they seem contrary.  Like one of my mentors had said to me many times, “whatever words you use to describe yourself, you are also the opposite.” 

Fierce Loving…what does that mean to you?

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Amber Krzys – a coach, speaker, and founder of bodyheart and Fierce Loving—organizations devoted to helping people experience deep fulfillment in their body, career, and life. Amber has a thriving coaching practice where she serves a wide range of individuals, and also creates and facilitates her own coaching groups for body, business and life. Her individual clients range from moms, artists, small business owners to corporate and creative executives.

Amber’s work as a professional speaker has been featured at TEDx Malibu, MSN, the White House blog, University of Southern California, Pennsylvania State University and more. Located in Los Angeles, Amber lives with her boyfriend and two rescue pups, and helps people change their lives for the better as a coach, speaker and author.

In this episode, you are going to hear Amber share:

  • her story of overcoming body-punishment, negative self talk and perfectionism to creating a thriving business helping others do the same.
  • what Fierce Loving is and how it came to be.
  • how to have healthy relationships in all areas of life – with your body, money, career, loved ones, family.
  • the 4 keys to having a successful relationship with anyone and anything
  • how to discern between your head and heart
  • why reading books isn’t enough to transform
  • how she is applying fierce loving to a current “rumble” in her own life
  • her wisdom on body image and creating a partnership with Her/Him
  • what you are really yearning for
  • internal vs. external results and fulfillment
  • why you need to build your inner stillness muscle

#015 The Illusion of Control, Authentic Confidence and Stepping into the Feminine with Maddy Moon

 

 

 

Body image and food obsession (aka food stress!) isn’t actually about how you look, or what you eat.  There is much more to it than that.  It is deeper.  Healing requires going deeper. Disordered eating, and body shame, are symptoms.  The root of the struggle is what my guest and I chat about this week.  Maddy and I know this area well! We had both been in body image and food “issues” hell for years and years.  It doesn’t have to be that way for you.  May our conversation open your world up and inspire you to see your body, food and yourself in a whole new way =)

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Madelyn Moon –an author, podcast host, retreat leader and transformational life coach. She is a guiding force for women who want to stop over-thinking their lives away, and live with more trust, intuition and flow. Maddy Moon was driven by masculine energy for most of her life, which led her down a dangerous path. Always striving to do more, be more and accomplish more, she found herself disconnected from her body with multiple disordered eating patterns, a restlessness and a lack of confidence. Maddy healed her heart, spirit, body and mind by stepping into her unique feminine power, giving up the need for control and learning to surrender to a higher power. Maddy takes life by the reigns today by leading thousands of women across the world through their own transformational experiences via her podcast, Mind Body Musings, her website, and her global retreats.

You are going to hear Maddy share:

  • what was going beneath the surface of her struggle with food and her body image.
  • why letting your parents off the hook is KEY to your own happiness and fulfillment in life.
  • the real reason you are depriving yourself and/or others of love and nurture.
  • the importance of harmonizing the masculine and feminine parts of you
  • why Faith is a key to building your confidence and letting go of control.
  • how to find balance between asking for help and self-reliance.
  • how to begin trusting your intuition.
  • why some tools and practices work for you, and others don’t.
  • and SO much more!!!

#014 Your Unique Formula for a Thriving Life with Sherri Starr

 

 

When I think about my own journey with food, my body and my health, it comes down to a variety of factors.  The most pivotal being having an empowering mindset, listening to and trusting my body, being flexible and open to change, embracing the journey and going on deep journey within myself.  These are the foundational pieces of health and happiness that my guest, Sherri, and I chat about this week.

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Sherri Starr – a life, health, and happiness coach on a mission to guide and empower women to live in a body they love and a life that lights them up. Sherri’s passion for proactive wellness was sparked by the loss of her father to suicide, which resulted in new insights about the importance of participating fully in each moment of our precious lives.

You are going to hear Sherri share:

  • why having an empowering mindset is key to getting results.
  • how your beliefs shape your life and health.
  • why your food and body story can keep you stuck.
  • how to both enjoy the journey and strive for improvement/growth.
  • what it takes to sustain lasting change in your life and with your health.
  • how to create goals in alignment with your true self.
  • the importance of creating trust and connection with your own body (your most trusted advisor/expert).

Why you are not healing from autoimmune disease

You are doing the “right” diet, taking all the supplements, seeing various doctors/practitioners, doing your research, and so on.  You are checking off the boxes on the healing to-do list.

BUT…You still feel like crap.  You are not getting better.  Your symptoms persist.

Maybe you are missing the magic supplement? or just need to do one more test?  or maybe the next practitioner holds the key?

Or maybe not.  Maybe there is something else you are not looking at.  Could the answer be within you?  Could your healing be stalled by what is going on in your inner world?

“What drains your spirit drains your body. What fuels your spirit fuels your body.”

How to embrace what is

When it comes to your reality, no matter what you are dealing with, you have a choice.

You can embrace what is, or resist what is.

A health issue. Your body.  Your bank account. A dysfunctional relationship.

Most of us choose to resist.  We ignore, fight, try harder, blame, frantically try to fix and change what is.  Resistance is hard.  It is tight, stressful, rigid and toxic. It is also comfortable and automatic.
