Do You Have an Inner Witch?

February 13, 2018

On this episode of She Rises, Host Giovanna Capozza talks about the concept of witch as healer.

  • What are the connotations that you have with the word “witch,” is it negative?
  • We use these magical personifications to reflect power that we think is outside ourselves.
  • For centuries witches were healers and went to the natural world for answers.
  • Patriarchal societies demonized witches because they were taught to fear powerful, sovereign women.
  • We tend to compartmentalize the spiritual or witchy side of ourselves.
  • Where have we lost connection with our magical being and how are we numbing her out?
  • The feminine aspect of god that wants to express through you is the “She” in She Rises.
  • Start asking yourself where you’ve neglected your inner healer, witch, priestess, medicine woman, etc.
  • Created a program called Business Magic for the entrepreneurial woman who is ready to own her inner witch.
  • Ask yourself, where is that witch archetype in my life? Is she showing up as the shadow-side and you can’t get where her light is?
  • Start to make peace with your inner witch if you’ve had negative connotations.
  • Write down questions you’d like answered about yourself and ask during meditation, allowing your inner witch to answer.

Tweetable Quotes:

  • “As women, we’ve had to live and survive in a very patriarchal world.”
  • “When you tap into her beauty and magic, there’s a deep sense of sovereignty that helps you approach things without being easily ruffled.”

Encore Episode with Lisa Natoli – A Course in Miracles: Relationships

In this episode, Giovanna welcomes Lisa Natoli to the show. Lisa is a minister, teacher and healer whose main focus is in the area of relationships—a harmonious relationship with one’s self, God, and with others. She opens up about her own broken history in relationships which led to her finding a partner in Jesus. Out of her commitment to her faith and the fullness of love that she found through forgiveness, Lisa was able to open herself up to a new relationship and express to herself what she really wanted.

Myriam Llano - Love Your Body Well

November 14, 2017

Myriam Llano is an expert on the relationship between women and nourishment. She teaches women globally about nourishing the sacred feminine first, as a way to honor themselves; bridging the gap between emotional eating, nutrition, and spirituality. She is the creator of the Divine Renewal™ program ... a revolutionary program which supports women in creating an intimate connection with food and their body; feeding what they’re truly hungry for in life with spiritual nutrition. After many decades of being on a personal quest to heal her relationship with food, Myriam realized that that the journey starts with honoring both our divine essence and our humanness.

When a woman begins to honor herself and let go of shame and old wounds, she can help create a movement ... a movement of women who are at peace with themselves, their bodies, food, and finally begin feeling whole. Every new moon, Myriam offers an episode of the Divine Renewal™ Radio program ~ a collection of spirited conversations with wise women helping you overcome body image and emotional nourishment issues by strengthening your connection with the sacred feminine. Myriam is a registered nutritionist, an emotional nourishment coach, and devoted to the oath of the Divine Feminine. For more information please visit divinerenewal.com

Her focus is to: “To help women rediscover their true essence and receive nourishment from the sacred feminine as they experience the Divine Renewal they hunger for". Giovanna talks to Myriam Llano about her Divine Renewal concept of healing the emotional and spiritual cravings that women have when overcoming body shaming, anxiety issues, and depression. Divine Renewal isn’t another dietary program to give up on, it is a woman’s opportunity to reunite herself with her own body; to learn how to appreciate herself as she is.
