How to Change Your World Through Self-Compassion with Rita Desnoyers-Garcia

When was the last time you were kind and gentle with yourself? 

In this episode, I'm joined by the fabulous Rita Desnoyers-Garcia, Spiritual Life Coach, Energy Worker, Channel, and Author. After a major setback in her business (that she started while raising three children), Rita's unworthiness stories hit her harder than ever and took her down a desperation rabbit hole. She tried everything, talked to everyone, and spent countless hours trying to save her business, yet to find the solution, she didn't have to move an inch; it was right inside of her: self-compassion. 

Throughout this episode, Rita talks about her transformational journey and innate desire to help others, which made her think of becoming a nun, practicing charity, and empowering and supporting stressed-out professional mums. We talk about the importance of actively practicing self-compassion, the meaning of becoming awake, why we spend so much time looking for dangers, and how this practice affects us.

Additionally, Rita explains why having a coach is like "having someone cutting the hair in the back of your head," the weight of the lies we repeat in our heads; she talks about her book, "The Self-compassion Project," why most women get stuck in her limiting beliefs, and more.
