Surrender, Expansion, and the Freedom to Love

What does it mean to surrender to what is?

With guest Aria Mae, Spiritual Heart Surgeon

  • What does it mean to surrender to what is?
  • What to do when we feel triggered?
  • How to  heal ourselves?

Aria Mae and I explore what it means to surrender to what is, and how to enact our freedom to choose our response when triggered in this debut episode of the Fearless Self-Love podcast.
Do you find yourself holding on and bracing for the daily battle of life? If you’re like me, you’ve probably also learned the hard way and experienced the consequences when we don’t let go- of pain, of anger, of our self-sabotaging stories, and our expectations. In this episode, guest speaker, Aria Mae, teaches us about surrendering to life and how to move with the flow of our emotions rather than be lead by them. Learn how we’ve become disconnected from our true selves and how we can heal ourselves.
