Share thiS

This episode came at the perfect time as I’ve been on my “social lie detox” for about 5-6 months and was finding myself leaning into old patterns. Fortunately, this conversation was the perfect fix to get reinvigorated to continue with a practice that has been personally transformational.

If you are someone who tries to “make everything right” and avoid rocking the boat, i think you will find this episode useful and inspiring.


Highlights of today's episode:

  1. The disconnection between the theory of honesty and the day to day practice of it.
  2. What we misunderstand about honesty.
  3. How telling the truth about your relationship with alcohol can guide you into alignment.

Hi I’m Meg. I love helping empathic people who sometimes “feel too much” calm their head, hearts, and homes through my courses and books. Ultimately we all want to feel good in our bodies, relationships, and with the work we do in this world. When we remove the roadblocks that exist on the road to feeling the way we want to feel life tend to flow easier.
