So how do you go from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world? How does a broke outsider become one of the most sought-after and respected entrepreneurs on the planet? And what lessons are there from this wild journey that can help all of us follow our true path, ignore the naysayers, and pave our own way to unbridled success?

You know your astrological sign… but do you know your numbers? Your numbers can predict so much about your life: your strengths and weaknesses, the ‘luckiest’ times to take action, who you’re most compatible with, your true life path, and what ‘themes’ will play out for you throughout each month and year. But how do you discover your numbers? How can you decipher their meaning? And how can you work *with* them to achieve the outcomes you most desire? To answer these questions, I’m joined by world-renowned numerologist Kaitlyn Kaerhart, whose bestselling numerology book is beloved by celebrities like Winona Ryder and Taylor Swift. Tune in to have your mind blown as we discuss: how to understand your ‘life path number’, navigating your ‘personal year cycles’, how to use numerology to radically boost your manifesting, how to know if there’s a karmic debt attached to your name, the role of numerology in relationships, and what your “angel numbers” (those repeating numbers you always see) actually mean.

This week, we’re continuing our look back at the most popular episodes of the show EVER. This time, it’s the second most downloaded episode ever and it’s a deep-dive into the life-changing magic of manifesting. In this conversation, Lacy Phillips takes all our outdated beliefs about manifestation, debunks them, and reveals the pieces of the process we’ve been missing. Along the way, she shares her unique and reliable formula for calling in your soul’s deepest desires and making them your reality. One of the reasons I think this episode was so insanely popular is how unique Lacy’s approach to manifesting is. The difference between her approach and the usual stock-standard technique is truly like chalk and (activated cashew) cheese. Instead of the usual edicts to “think positive and visualize!", Lacy is all about helping you connect back with your authentic self and dismantle the societal programming, labels, and molds that don't align with your true nature. (And spoiler alert: it’s these extra steps that turbocharge your manifesting and turn you into a magnet for your desires.) So if you want to rewire your limiting beliefs, manifest *exactly* what you want, and create abundance in all areas of your life, don’t waste another minute: pop in those earbuds and press play! Whether it’s your first time listening to this epic conversation, or whether it’s a re-listen, you’re sure to glean amazing insights and strategies that can quite literally change your life.

Ever looked at your partner and wondered if they're from a different planet?! If you’re nodding a big HELL YEAH right now, you’re not alone! The differences between partners can be a huge source of tension and discord… but they can also be a powerful source of connection and intimacy.

So if you want to deepen your understanding of the masculine and feminine, unlock the secrets of your partner’s brain, and create a genuinely rocking relationship, this episode is for you.

I hope this touches you as much as it’s touched me. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
