A few years back Cassie Mendoza-Jones put her heart, soul, time and money into a big work project. This project came to her easily and felt effortless and joyful. It felt like she was in total alignment, so you can imagine how devastating it was for her when the project did not achieve the success she was hoping for.
In fact this so called failure had her down. Losing faith in herself, her intuition and the universe she was forced to go deeply into her own healing. In this experience she could see how hard she was on herself- how controlling she was of her life and how easy it was for her to get stuck in the “doing” rather than the “being”.
Cassie also shares with us:
+ Why showing up and doing the inner work is much more than just “doing the work”
+ How she has had to redefine goal setting and success so that she is less controlling and more allowing
+ Why allowing things to be as they are, leaves space for things to be even better than you could possibly imagine
+ Why it was just so hard for her to forgive herself and how a health crisis forced her to really go there
+ How her mother first initiated her intuition at a toy shop and how she keeps this alive these days with automatic writing

Sarah Durham Wilson has had her fair share of moments on the bathroom floor, including one years ago that initiated a full kundalini awakening and her spiritual path into Do it girl.
At the time of this interview, Sarah was there again, in the dark. Darkness initiated, amongst other things, by the loss of her beloved fur baby and navigating motherhood alone.
Sarah doubted whether she could be on a show called Unbreakable whilst feeling so broken, but this is precisely what I love about this episode. She is in it, feeling it all, stripped back to nothing and opening up to us about the experience - the pain, the teachings and the richness. And even there, deep in it, she is able to trust her own unbreakable spirit.
As is always the case in any conversation with Sarah, this interview is laced with mythology, mysticism and imagery that brings her words to life and transports us to worlds and possibilities beyond our own.
Sarah also shares with us:
+ How being in the dark does not mean being in agony
+ The journey of Innana and why stripping back to nothing can be so full of richness
+ The hard learned lesson that nobody is coming to save us - we have to save ourselves
+ The epic journey from maiden to mother to crone and where she is at right now
+ Where she goes to get her guidance in moments of fear - think mystical and magical!
+ Why she is ready for battle and suited up & how activism is no longer a choice
