4 Types of Knowing • Reclaim Full Sets of Mind-Heart-Body-Soul Knowings

Watch the 4 Types of Knowing ⤵︎


We know to work smarter, not harder. But here we are, juggling 19 balls of fire... again.

We know to honor our needs. But here we are, carrying everyone else's sky... again.

We know to voice our worth. But here we are, throwing ourselves on the fire to keep everyone else warm... again.

Whyyyyyy?!? 😫

Because we haven't yet reclaimed a full set of knowing around the themes of peace, joy, and worthiness.

Reading a pregnancy book 🧠 is VERY different from pushing a human out of your body 👣 and consciously raising it 💖, while maturating your own identity ⭐️ .

You know smoking is bad... but you smoke anyway (even if you're a medical doctor).


Example 2

🧠 💖 👣 ⭐️ Behavior Change
-- -- 🟢🟢⚪️⚪️⚪️

You watched your father die a slow death from lung cancer... and wholeheartedly stopped smoking. When the grief subsided, the smoking resumed.


Example 3

🧠 💖 👣 ⭐️ Behavior Change
-- 🟢🟢🟢🟢⚪️

You survived atrocious chemotherapy for lung cancer... so you now live smoke-free, though the mind is still tempted to light one up sometimes.


Example 4

🧠 💖 👣 ⭐️ Behavior Change
🟢🟢🟢🟢🟢🟢🟢🟢🟢🟢

You remember in a past life where your daughter died in a freak accident and donated her lungs to you to save you from lung cancer... and you never picked up another cigarette in any lifetime from here to eternity.

Full Sets of Knowing

When I embarked on Freedompreneurship, ie entrepreneurship as a spiritual quest to free myself and others, I had no idea I'd be scouring the Earth and my innards for shards of knowing to kintsugi myself back together again. Some knowings I never had - worth, belonging, childhood. Some knowings were smashed to smithereens - safety, self-trust, relevance.

Unlike Humpty Dumpty, I slowly and painstakingly put myself back together again. ⤵︎

Challenge • Lifetime of shame  ⤳⤳  Full Set • Worthiness
🧠 Equine therapy horse bit me for me to mind-know I had no self-worth and needed to get some
💖 Brené Brown's TEDx Talk pierced my heart-knowing with image of "I am enough", cried for weeks
👣 When my feet touched the ground after ropes course, my bones knew that I matter. It was a first!
⭐️ On route to funeral, scarcity pebbles lifted off my ribs, the barriers to worthiness finally lifted off my soul


Get a glimpse of how the brave women in our Phoenixsphere are working toward collecting full sets of knowing. ⤵︎

Challenge • Not having a voice  ⤳⤳  Full Set • Self-expression
🧠 Someone in my yoga community told me "Your throat chakra seems blocked" and I felt some truth there...
💖 (tbd...)
👣 After chronic throat aches and literally losing my voice, signed up for Breathwork and Vipassana, which gave me the guts to howl at the moon and speak up
⭐️ A friend gifted me a blue stone and every time I hold it, my voice relaxes, it's the strangest thing!


Challenge • Fear of being seen  ⤳⤳  Full Set • Safety
🧠 Thanks to neuroscience course, I can name that fear as "freeze" response. Every time I teach it, the fear dissolves a bit more.
💖 Getting trustworthy connection and relational safety and support through somatic coaching
👣 Non-linear movement practice gets me out of "freeze" response
⭐️ (tbd... maybe a shaman for intergenerational fear of "Witch burning"?)

Live fierce and free,
