Turning Inward with Dr. Vivian Carrasco

This podcast explores what it means to turn inward and find the answers within you instead of seeking external approval or validation. It helps you listen to your silent voice within and let that be your guide. I’m a teacher and mentor who works with women to help them make space for what really matters and learn to Love.Being.Human. I’m your guide to learning how to embrace your life, relationships and meaning with beautiful, inspired action. We can work together through group programs, 1:1 mentoring or in my learning community, Within (U)niversity. Join the Within (U)niversity Community and connect with other mindful leaders and creatives forging their own personal path. It’s where you learn to cultivate new levels of peace within yourself and realize what’s possible for your life.

Digging Deeper Through Awareness

Are you seeking more meaning in your life?  Do you see the value in getting to know who you really are? If this is true for you, listen in to Vivian Carrasco, as she honestly shares her story and reveals her vulnerability, so that you can become inspired to dig deeper into yourself to find your own truth.

 

Join Vivian, a creative midwife and mindset mentor, on today's episode of “Turning Inward”. She will help you in navigating the interior sea of life and your restless heart, by unearthing your own personal truth, your insight, and your inner knowing, through awareness.

 

Join Vivian today as she talks about:

 

  • Letting go of what no longer serves you.
  • The value of following your heart, even though it's difficult.
  • How you create your own meaning.
  • What she realized through her deep journey of getting to know herself.
  • The message she received through a recent meditation, about becoming a healing power.
  • Why she's no longer afraid.
  • How exploring her fear lead her to discover another, deeper fear.
  • Her most precious stones.
  • How she tripped up in her 'meaning making' in the past.
  • The importance of uncovering what's underneath, what you don't see, in finding meaning in your life.

We've all got fears. I have them. You have them. Everyone on earth has them. In today's episode, I get very real and very candid about my fears. I talk about what's driving them and how they impact me, my business, my relationships, and everything I touch. 

Come and walk with me on this journey!

The Gratitude Show

Gratitude doesn't have to be saved for the million dollar moments in your life. Your attention is actually a type of alchemy. Noticing what your thankful for and investing precious time to express your gratitude actually makes you feel more alive, helps you sleep better, cultivates more compassion and kindness, and even strengthens your immune systems. Tune in as I announce our new season and format and share a few of the hearts, hands and humans that I'm grateful for as Love.Being.Human turns three.

Visit http://www.Viviancarrasco.com for more insight, wisdom and inspiration. 

 

In this episode I share:

How Love.Being.Human. was birthed three years ago.

The pivot I made from avoiding what I feared to instead moving toward what I enjoy and love. 

 

The community you can access via Within (U)niversity, because you don't have to figure it out by yourself. You are not alone.

I’m honored to have as my guest Martha Beck, the inspirational life coach, sociologist, speaker, and author of many self-help books. Her newest book is the first installment of The Bewilderment Chronicles Trilogy. It’s an allegory called Diana, Herself, and is a symbol of what the human psyche does in awakening. The book is about finding the part of yourself that’s who you would be if no one had harmed or shaped you in any way. Martha urges us all to find our “wild selves” as she asks, “Do you want to get wild with me?”

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • There are three questions for Martha from my book club members:
    • From Beth: How do we find the “Roy” within ourselves?
    • From Todd: What books are on the cutting edge of bewilderment? (See resources below)
    • From Lori: What are your thoughts on the Wayfinders’ Gathering, and will there be more such events?
  • Moments of breakthrough
  • The power of books—they SHOUT!
  • Martha’s near-death experience
  • Living “without a plan”
  • The 2nd book in the trilogy: about freeing the divine masculine by the divine feminine
  • The 3rd book in the trilogy: about the divine feminine and divine masculine working together to save the world!
  • From the book: The 7 Tasks of Bewilderment
  • A different kind of experiential learning
  • Overview of the 2nd book
  • Just follow your heart

This is a short audio of my experience with the The Manifesto Sessions, 2 weeks of deep and deliverable rich work that helped me get clear on what I personally need to do next, to move forward, to stop spinning my wheels and to get the traction. This experience was world class, with a myriad of women from Senior Executives in Organizations around the globe to Founders with businesses from 500K to 300+M. If your ready for a personal revolution to gain clarity, reach out to Kelsey. She was named Canada's Top Female Entrepreneur two years running, featured in Forbes and won various global awards for her ability to build not only world class businesses but a life that has included having 3 children and cancer....so she definitely has walked her talk. :)

Live your Truth from the Inside out

This short episode is an update on my message and methodology intended to help you imagine a new way to lead & live.

Question what you're thinking to get to your inner knowing.

Awareness isn't learning something new it's letting go of what doesn't serve your greatest good.

Choose to move in the direction of love.

Human - Where am I? What do I need?

Being - The state of your doing. Your personal spiritual practice.

Love - Not what it is, but what you know it isn't

You’re in the right place if you’re open to seeing things a bit differently and also experiencing life fully through all your senses, especially your intuition. Sarah and I will walk you through an audio experience of Martha Beck’s Finding Your Way in a Wild New World: Reclaim Your True Nature to Create The Life you Want.

I believe that our new revolution is Evolution. You can create your wild new world; we’ll show you how to begin. The future of our work provides daily meaning. We can work with a greater sense of purpose.

So reduce the head noise, get some space and resonate instead.

We’ll be with you the entire ride.

Wishing you well now and all ways,

Vivian

 

Week 12: Chapters 14 & 15 

In the final call of this audio course, we reflect on a very important concept: how helping yourself helps others. From there we discuss an array of topics from the infinity loop of rest and play, empowerment and meaning making to finally discuss the importance of community and connection in the process of healing.

This chapter, and entire book for that matter, shows how being authentically you is essential to your happiness and work in the world. Bringing our complete, true identity into the world is shifting from a luxury to a form of survival. Being the real you in each part of your life—work, home, social circles etc.—will no longer consists of distinct roles or personas. What this also helps us see more and more each day is that it’s not just survival, but one of the best ways to live. If that’s not awesome, I don’t know what is!  

Although this concludes the audio course and book club, we’d like to invite you to consider never-ending reciprocity.   

Allow yourself to daydream about the possibilities of what can come from helping yourself. In what easy way can you do this for yourself today? Maybe you could even give it a try…

We look forward to continuing to connect, share and support you within and between, Teammate.

Xx,

Sarah

Week 11: Chapter 13 

Forming Your Art, Mending Yourself is the focus of today’s conversation. We discuss the different ways we naturally mend ourselves and the roles they play in what we have to offer to the world. In this chapter, Martha outlines ways to explore this and we do so together in the recording.

Current events that are often shown on the evening news and social media depict depressing scenes of conflict. And while it is true that there are many suffering in this day and age, we are also living in an era of great opportunity. Today’s conversation may ignite gratitude and appreciation for being a part of this global transformation.

If you haven’t already, complete the list Martha provides regarding the 10,000 hours of deep practice on page 240. If you are having a difficult time coming up with ideas, go back to a hot track. When was the last time you found yourself truly immersed and enjoying the present moment? What were you doing then? Who were you with?

Xx,

Sarah
