Episode 1 - Intro & Welcome

Welcome to my new podcast - The Radical Radiance Show!

I’m so excited you are here, we are going to dive in to many topics and I wanted to share a bit about why I’ve started this show, and what you can expect when you tune in.

For several years now I’ve been sharing about my life online, it started as just a side hobby and way to connect with my friends online. After a while, I started to learn that people wanted to learn more and wanted to know more about my lifestyle. I have answered thousands of questions from personal messages and have been able to connect with so many individuals from all over the globe.

I live in the beautiful state of Maine with my two wild sons and an adorable crew of creatures. I have been living off-grid (so to speak) for 7 years, using solar energy to power my house. I’ve been gardening and foraging for many years, and have found it to be a source of healing and medicine for myself and others. I’ve worked with multiple leaders in the health and wellness industry since the age 20.

I’ve decided to start a show because I know its my mission to reach more people who want more in their life. People who are tired of the same old mundane things in their life and are just over feeling sick and tired. Coming through my own health and wellness challenges in my life, I’ve come to a place where I want to connect people with more options, because we all deserve to feel good and feel happy in our bodies. 

So I want to share how my show title was born… It started with the word “radical”. I heard someone call someone out as a radical about a year and a half ago, which they meant as an insult. However the person they were speaking about was someone who wasn’t accepting the old way of life anymore. She wanted more and she wanted to stand up to the system and wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. I took this intended insult and actually realized I am a radical. And that right now, with everything happening ALL around the world, NOW is the time for radical action and radical change. It’s 2019 and it’s going to be 2020 in a few months.

The definition of radical - advocating or based on thorough or complete political or social change. To say I am an advocate of all of these types of change is a huge understatement. It’s time and it’s happening now.

And Radiance. Ahhhhh radiance, and to radiate, it means so many things! The sunshine radiates on us and all life on this planet which we need to sustain life. When we radiate joy, it is infectious and spreads to others. When we radiate love, it is infectious and spreads to others. When we radiate a negative emotion or negative messaging, that also spreads to others. I love talking about and understanding about the trickle effect.

Whenever we have a conversation with ANYONE on the planet, it’s an opportunity. I believe it’s an opportunity because every single thing that we talk about with someone, might end up in their next conversation with someone else. And then on to the next person. And the trickle effect goes on. Kind of like the game of telephone right? So what we talk about when sitting around the living room with friends MATTERS. When we’re walking out of yoga with a friend and have a quick chat. How we treat someone when we’re out in public. The conversations we have with someone at a bar or restaurant. In the grocery store. At the auto mechanic. At the doctors. At school. EVERYWHERE matters. 

Every time we connect with someone, we have an opportunity to radiate messages that matter. Heavy topics or the light fluffy ones. Every time we spend a dollar, we are casting our vote for what we want more of in our life and what we want more of in our community or in our world. The energy behind it radiates out into the world and becomes something.

No matter what we do, we are radiating our energy to the people around us, at all times. Sure it’s their choice what energy they want to receive or what they want to block.

Every time we go anywhere in the world or talk to anyone, we have a choice on HOW we radiate to them and to the world.

It’s my mission on this planet to talk about the things that matter. The heavy stuff and the joyful stuff. How do we get unstuck and out of the mundane way of being or getting out of being trapped by the system. We talk about it and we create change.

On this show, The Radical Radiance show - you can expect a huge variety of topics. We are going to hit it all. If there’s someone you really want to see interviewed, send me a message. If there’s a topic near to your heart or you are just curious about, send me a message and I’ll find the right fit of someone to interview. Not everyone is going to resonate with every episode or every single interviewee and that’s ok. Take everything you hear here and ALL over the internet with a grain of salt and use your own filter. Tap into that personal guidance system and tap into your intuition. There is not one exact perfect diet for everyone or type of exercise or way of living, and there is not one exact path for everyone. 

I am here to share matters that mean a lot to me and that mean a lot to you. I am here to hopefully connect and help find some solutions and radiate change all over the world. I am here to provide a source of trustworthy information that you feel inspired to share with others. I am here to grow with you and hopefully we can all grow together.

So come. I am inviting you to be a radical with me. Let’s radiate and feel better, talk about things that matter, and be a part of the revolutionary change taking place on the planet right now. 

I can’t wait to share more with you all and to be on this journey with me.

Shoutout to TogetherRising.org in this episode. I have been so inspired by their work at the ground level most recently with bringing families back together and reuniting children with at least 1 parent. These families have been torn apart due to immigration camps in the US, and it’s completely heartbreaking. Together Rising is very transparent with every dollar that is spent, and every single penny that’s donated matters and adds up. If you can help spread the message about what they are doing, find them on social media @TogetherRising. If you are able to donate anything towards their goals, visit their website here: https://togetherrising.org.
