“Our constant need to seek validation from others reflects how we consistently and chronically have been conditioned to give our power away and trust in others rather than the self”Who do you constantly find yourself seeking validation from in your personal or professional life?From an early age, we have been conditioned to seek validation outside of the self, so we could learn what was right and wrong, good and bad, acceptable and non-acceptable, and as we did so we received either praise, love and attention or rejection, a reprimand or being chastised.As a result, this pattern continued into adulthood and manifests in both our personal and professional lives as it is deeply woven into our unconscious psyche. It’s our default pattern that arises when we feel insecure, lacking in confidence, and are crippled by self-doubt. In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I’m exploring how our relationship with seeking validation keeps us from trusting in our own power and potential and prevents us from validating our emotions, our needs and boundaries, and our dreams and desires. I share with you a story about my own relationship with validation and how it helped me to understand the deeper belief system at play that was directly connected to my own sense of self-worth and the steps we can take to unravel this deeply embedded pattern from our shadow self.With Love, Nicola x ➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Programme https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

“We have a hidden language, a language we use unconsciously, passed down through the generations from mother to daughter informing us that our needs and boundaries are not worthy of respect”Do the words you speak empower or disempower your sense of self-worth?Verbal communication is such a fundamental aspect of our human nature, we communicate every single moment of every single day, silently and aloud to ourselves and others. However, for the most part, we don’t even realise what we’re saying or how we say it and we don’t recognise how some of the words we use are reinforcing a narrative that directly affects our sense of self-worth and value.   In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I share with you three words that make up a phrase that we, as women, have been using against ourselves and others for centuries. We have used these words to negate, dismiss, and deny our emotions, our feelings, our needs and boundaries, our hopes, dreams and desires. Three words that when taken together and repeated over and over again, remind us on an unconscious level we are not worthy and as a result keep us repeating the same unhealthy patterns and disconnected from our power and potential to change our world from the inside out.  What are these three words? I invite you to tune in to find out more…With Love, Nicola x➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Programme https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

“When we have a healthy relationship with our vulnerability we are able to face our deepest shadows and the pain and suffering hidden there so we can reclaim more of our power and potential buried beneath”   In this unhealthy male-orientated structure we have been born into we have been conditioned to believe that vulnerability is a weakness and if we reveal this weakness we will be judged, criticised, named and shamed and therefore on some level rejected and excluded. Conforming to this narrative further compounds our disconnection with our true and authentic nature and reinforces our unconscious need to avoid and suppress our emotions, pain and suffering, and unresolved wounding, trauma and conditioning. As a result, we armour up, protecting our hearts and hide behind the masks and roles that create an illusion of safety, security and stability, never allowing ourselves to step fully into the power of vulnerability in all areas of our lives.   In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I explore the deep relationship we have with vulnerability from an early age and how our unconscious patterns are created from what we experience during this influential development period of our lives and how these then carry through to adulthood.   I share with you my own intimate journey with vulnerability through my intense 5-yr Shamanic training, what I experienced and how I challenged myself to let go of all control and expectations to help me understand the true nature of the shadow, soul and psyche and the steps we can take to rebuild our relationship with trust by stepping into vulnerability. With Love, Nicola x➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Programme https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

"Practicing radical honesty is a cornerstone of Shadow Work and when we learn how to embrace it we step into more of our personal power and potential to manifest the life and relationships we truly desire. " We expect others to be radically honest with us, and yet how honest are we with ourselves and others?As women we have been conditioned to hide how we really feel, suppressing our needs and sacrificing our boundaries in the process. We say yes when we mean no and vice versa. We suppress the truth of our voice to please others.Quite simply we have compromised our truth through fear of being rejected and having to face the disapproval of others.As a result, we stay locked down in internal conflict, reacting to our unresolved wounding and trauma rather than being able to communicate what we really want and need in a healthy and balanced way because we have not learned how to be radically honest with ourselves.In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I’m exploring the challenges we face in practicing radical honesty, the steps we can take to reclaim the power of our truth and make decisions from the heart and not from the wound helping us to completely redefine the relationship we have with ourselves and others.I share with you my own intimate journey through radical honesty that resulted in a life and death decision, what I learned from it and how it helped me to recognise my own power and potential, lessons I now share and support my clients with.With Love,Nicola x➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Programme https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

What are the money wounds you carry in your life and your family history that stop you from manifesting the money and wealth you desire?We all have a relationship with money and wealth and that relationship can either be healthy or unhealthy depending on whether we have been educated about the value of money and how it works and whether we are aware of the money wounds we carry.Money, like sex and death, is a great taboo of our society and culture, it is something hidden that we do not like to talk about or share as it is somehow dirty and shameful. We don’t want others to know how much we earn or how much money we have in the bank because of a conditioned belief that it will affect how others perceive us, and whether we are of value or not. We have also seen how greed for financial power has placed profit over people and the planet, making the rich richer and the poor poorer, depleting our resources on every level. And we experience daily the power of the debt economy we have been conditioned to live in, giving us a false sense of identity, status, safety, security and stability, a system in which we must keep performing and conforming to meet the needs of this debt, living a life that keeps us in a state of anxiety, fear and stress, often feeling lost, unfulfilled and unhappy, and sacrificing our own health, needs, and dreams in the process.   In this episode, I’m exploring how our relationship with money and wealth begins when we are young and even beyond through the generations. I explore how money has been used to have power over us, to disempower us so we stay in the fear and the scarcity mindset. I share stories of my own money story and where those wounds began and how they shaped my life along with steps we can take to unravel these tangled threads so we can redefine the relationship we have with our own money and wealth. With Love, Nicola x  ➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Programme https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

We’ve all experienced an emotional breakdown at some point in our lives, that heart-breaking, gut-wrenching outpouring of grief that no matter how much we try to control it, suppress it, ignore it, it just won’t stop. Yet, as women we have been conditioned to suppress our emotions, to not feel or express them in any way as they are deemed not acceptable by others and so we need to perform and conform and stay in control on so many levels, which he makes the process so much harder to deal with. In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I’m exploring how an emotional breakdown is a death process, a period of our life that makes us face the stark reality that we have outgrown an aspect of our self and we must now let go of it so we can make space for more of our power and potential that now wishes to be birthed. And with death, naturally comes grief and this is why an emotional breakdown is so painful as the heart literally breaks open shattering the illusions and delusions we have created to maintain a sense of safety, security and stability and a level of control. I share with you a story from my own life navigating an emotional breakdown and the lessons I learned from it, along with ways in which we can consciously support ourselves through the experience, so we can come out the other side with more love, compassion and understanding for the self.

Have you ever noticed how much you take flight in your personal or professional life to avoid feeling something that makes you feel very uncomfortable?Taking flight, as the fight and freeze response is a survival mechanism alerting us to danger, a response that is needed to keep us safe from harm. However, as women, we have been conditioned from a very early age to ignore, avoid or suppress our emotional and somatic intelligence and as a result, taking flight has become a default pattern created from unprocessed wounding, trauma or conditioning. We take flight because something or someone has triggered a challenging emotion relating to the original trauma that we do not want to feel as it threatens our sense of safety, security and stability and so we will do anything to distract ourselves from it. We will disassociate from the body, the wound and the emotion and turn our attention to anything and everything from food, drugs and alcohol to scrolling through social media, watching Netflix or buying things we don’t really need. Then there are the more impactful ways we take flight like leaving a relationship before it gets too serious because we are afraid of going a step deeper or flitting from place to place, home to home, because we may be afraid of becoming too attached. The more we take flight, the more we check out of our bodies and sever the deep connection to self and our intuition, reacting to the trauma and not responding from a heart-centred place. We will then fall into deeper patterns of procrastination, judging, blaming and shaming ourselves for not being able to move forward or get things done the way we wanted to.In this episode, I share with you my own journey of taking flight from the deep instability I have felt since early childhood as a response to my core wounding of abandonment, a response that has ultimately impacted my life and relationships. After decades of exploring this hidden side of my female psyche, I share what I have learned and steps we can take to come back into the body and de-armour the flight response so we can learn how to feel safe in the body, feel safe in the feeling of our emotions and finally find resolution to the unresolved wounding, trauma and conditioning we are holding onto that no longer serves our highest and greatest good. With Love, Nicola x

As women, we have been conditioned to invest our time, energy and love in the external world to give us a sense of our stability - our families, friends and intimate relationships, our education, society and our careers, even our homes, the money in our bank accounts and the material lifestyle we create for ourselves including all the sentimental possessions we fill our lives with.However, to maintain this sense of stability, we need to continuously perform and conform to a set of undisclosed predetermined rules, feeding the stability of the other to feed the stability of the self and often compromising our own needs and boundaries in the process. Then the world shifts on an axis, someone dies, illness or accidents knock at our door, a relationship breaks down, either personal or professional breaks down that threatens our identity, our homes or careers, or something out of our control, like Covid, happens and suddenly we don’t feel very stable anymore. In fact, we feel very unstable, our foundation is shaken to its core and we have an identity crisis, making us question who we are, where are we going and what is our purpose in the world. In this episode, I share with you my own journey of finding stability within the instability, what I learned from it and how I now help other women to find their way back to a deep sense of connection and stability in themselves, without investing all of themselves in an unstable and ever-changing world.  With Love, Nicola x

Who are you truly without what or who you identify with? “We need to tap into who we are beneath the surface to be able to then show up as our authentic selves.”Tapping into our true feminine nature is about being present within the self, so we can live, love and relate from an authentic place. However, our identity has been created for us, according to the boxes we have been conditioned to fit into even though they don’t align with who we are. We have sacrificed our needs and boundaries creating an internal conflict within our female psyche. This is, however, being turned around by COVID giving us permission as women to come back into more of our internal rhythm and be more productive. To know your identity, you have to learn how to practice discipline and discernment in a way that honours your true feminine nature through self-awareness and self-care, honouring your needs and boundaries so you can create healthy habits that respect who you truly are beneath the surface.

Do You Trust What Your Body is Telling You, or Do You Ignore, Reject or Suppress These Vital Messages That Are Signalling Something is Out of Balance?Everything that we are, all our power, our pain and our potential exists in the body. Who we are as women exist in the body. Who we are at the very root of our true nature exists in the body and in our relationship to our body.Learning to trust in the body is not easy, as the relationship we have with our body and our emotions has been conditioned through the idealism of perfection by society creating the great disconnect and the suppression of our true and innate nature. To return home into our body, to be fully present within it so we can understand the true depth of who we are as women we will need to change the narrative from the inside out and this starts with learning to listen to the needs and manifestations of the body from a place of heart-centred trust and acceptance. In This Episode You Will Explore:1) How we have been conditioned by society through the idealism of perfection2) How we judge and compare ourselves to others and the nature of performing, conforming and pleasing others3) The suppression of trust and ownership of our true nature4) Changing the narrative we have with our bodies through listening and responding5) How are bodies are communicating to us at every given moment through the emotions and symptoms that are manifested and what we can do to explore what is out of balance. 6) The nature of dis-eases and dis-orders and redefining the relationship we have with them7) Reclaiming of personal power and trust through deep conversation with the body and emotions.With Love, Nicola xGET EXTRA JOURNAL PROMPTS HERE➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Program - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

Do You Trust Yourself More to Do What’s Right For You or Do You Trust More What Others Tell You is Right?In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I'm exploring the Trust Wound, and how this one aspect is the most fundamental foundation block of our personal power, and yet is the one aspect that is most often knocked out of sync from the moment we are born. It is our immediate family and caregivers, and the environment in which we grow up that shapes and informs our relationship with trust. As we grow through life, we tend to trust others more, than our own judgment simply because we really don’t know how to trust ourselves as we’ve never been taught. When we learn how to trust ourselves, our whole lives change and the way in which we relate with others changes too, as we have more inner confidence to practice discernment and act on our own intuition.

In today’s episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I’m exploring Dream Work as one of the great tools of Shadow Work.Most of us dream whether we are conscious of them or not, and when we learn how to work with our dreams they become a valuable resource to help us explore the hidden side of our female psyche. While our dreams can be either weird, scary, meaningful, delightful or just plain nonsense, they hold clues which rise from the depth of our unconscious while our ego is asleep and our bodies are going through its daily process of rest and recuperation. Each clue, when we learn how to interpret them, shows us what is asking for our attention that is now seeking resolution so we can break out of our limitations and move forward with more balance and harmony in our lives and relationships.

Are you navigating a relationship breakdown through its limitations so you can experience more of it's potential?In this episode of The Feminine Principle Podcast, I'm exploring the complex dynamics of navigating a relationship breakdown, an aspect of our lives that can be deeply painful and traumatic, as we have to face the part of ourselves that fears being honest because we are afraid of being rejected or rejecting and hurting the other.Yet, the relationship breaks down because we have reached a limitation within the self and within the relationship and the shadow is fully activated, on an individual and relationship level. This challenges us to separate from the relationship dynamic so we can reclaim a sense of identity, giving us the opportunity to practice honesty and explore whether there is still potential in the relationship from love, dreams and desires.With Love, Nicola x➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Program - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

In this episode, I’m exploring the Madwoman Archetype, and how she shows up in our lives and in our relationships. The Madwoman Archetype is one we all know too well as she manifests in the thin line between sanity and insanity, pushing us to the very edges of our psyche. While the Madwoman Archetype is identified as destructive, sabotaging our relationships and our potential, she is also a source of great power informing us what is out of balance on the inside that now needs resolution so her creative fire can manifest as her driving force.With Love,Nicola x➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Program - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultation

Boundaries are an innate survival tool that allows us to filter what we allow into our lives. While boundaries are necessary, we explore how those same boundaries can block us from our greatest potential and how we can overcome them with self-love, self-care, and respect, and how they put a strain on the relationship we have with ourselves and with others.

She has presented her work on both The Shift Network and Sounds True. She appears in a TV program titled Ice Age Shaman, made for the Smithsonian Museum, in the series Mystic Britain talking about Neolithic arctic deer shamanism. Her third book, Medicine of the Imagination (Dwelling in possibility) will be published by Moon Books in 2020.Imelda was a presenter on the Shamanism Global Summit in both 2016 and 2017 and on Year of Ceremony with Sounds True. She is a regular presenter on The Shamanic Path with Sounds True. She appears in a TV program made for the Smithsonian Channel (the series is called Mystic Britain) about the Mesolithic site Star Carr in Yorkshire talking about arctic deer shamanism! Imelda divides her time between the UK, Sweden and the US. She has just finished her third book “Medicine of the Imagination: Dwelling in Possibility” and she is currently working on her fourth book, about the pre-Christian spirituality of The Netherlands.We are discussing how Inner Work / Shadow Work is a vital part of our human journey and how we all have a responsibility to take an active part in it to make the necessary shifts needed in the external world, and how external activism has to be matched with inner activism.We also look at the role of the ancestors and how they give us a map for what we are currently experiencing, individually and collectively and what they can teach us about where and who we are now.Imelda shares some of her own stories of working with the Shadow Self, how she engages with it in her relationships with her family. She also believes that Shadow Work "should be like brushing our teeth or washing our hair or whatever it's like a form of spiritual and psychological hygiene" and that it needs to be on the curriculum in schools, as the younger generations are going to be the "doctors, the politicians, the nature keepers, and the earth keepers of the future".CONTACT IMELDA ALMQVISTWebsite – http://www.shaman-healer-painter.co.uk/Email – imelda.almqvist@gmail.comFacebook – https://www.facebook.com/imelda.almqvistBOOKS BY IMELDANatural Born Shamans: A Spiritual Toolkit for LifeSacred Art: A Hollow Bone for Spirit➤ GET YOUR FREE PLAYBOOK – Master Your Emotional Triggers in Your Relationships - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/master-emotional-triggers-in-your-relationships➤ FREE CONSULTATION – Break Free From the Ghosts of Your Past with the 1:1 Shadow Work for Women 9-Month Program - https://thefeminineprinciple.com/free-consultationWith Love, Nicola x
