Feminine Power & The Fear Of Being Judged With Kelly Brogan


If you want to overcome fear and judgment from others and awaken the feminine power within, this is the episode for you! In it, Kelly Brogan, M.D. offers powerful insights and tips on reclaiming your intuition, decerning the difference between fear and intuition, overcoming self-abandonment, and healing the sisterhood wound.

She shares what it's been like for her to express her sensuality more in business and the vast range of feedback she's gotten from it- from people cheering her on to those who think it's satanic or harmful. She also offers valuable tips on how to sit with the fear and discomfort of being judged or getting negative feedback, as well as how to tap into the power of having supportive friends, community, and girlfriends.

Not only that, but we go into the whole “girl boss” movement and what's the “new way” of doing business is, plus the role polarity plays in transitioning our culture from one of warfare to one of complementary energy.

So if you've ever felt like you've been shoved into a box by society as a woman, then you're definitely gonna want to tune in! Kelly is an extraordinary example of someone who embodies a VAST range of archetypes and femininity. We explore what it means to “try on different characters” and express different versions of ourselves and how this is the key to reclaiming your lost parts and turning shame into play.

Kelly has a unique take on the true source of women's abuse, aggression, dominance, and oppression. Her viewpoint might trigger the crapola out of you or be the gateway to true liberation and empowerment — I guess you'll have to listen to find out! So join us now for this powerful episode on feminine power, intuition, and reclaiming your true self..
