In this episode, Jess King shares a personal mid-September check-in during this extraordinary year. Between the Covid-19 pandemic, politics, environmental catastrophes (and whatever else) there’s a lot each of us could be afraid of and stressed out about each day. More than ever we are being challenged to awaken. It’s natural to feel overwhelmed by emotion at times and to feel discomfort - emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually - as a result of the collective awakening we’re experiencing. Jess shares a personal issue she’s been working on - claiming her shame over her age (as posted in her birthday Instagram post last week) in terms of viewing herself as a failure. As minor as it may seem (and as much as she has already shamed her shame for years!), it is through our personal healing that we empower others to awaken and heal. This requires courage and we’re all capable of moving forward in this way (no, it’s not easy - but it, and you, are worth it). By first acknowledging our issues and then taking steps toward owning them we are already having a tremendous positive impact. Self-awareness is the first step. And while healing isn’t linear, each and every step with intention in the direction of our personal healing unlocks healing in someone else. Our ripple is so powerful. Let’s celebrate our awareness and our journeys as we continue to liberate ourselves, heal and evolve. No judgment - only love. We’re in this together and together we all win.
In this episode, Jess King shares personal insights about the role self-belief plays in enabling us to live our best (most fulfilled and happy successful) life. When we believe in ourselves, we’re far more able to be who we truly are, our most authentic version. During the evolving Covid-19 era in which we are living, we have had the challenge and opportunity to be less in nonstop action and more in stillness, intention and reflection. Through increasing our consciousness/awareness we allow ourselves to expand and grow rather than escape and avoid our issues. It’s an ideal time to prioritize our personal healing in order to thrive, heal and evolve into our next level (a more authentic version). The more truthful we become about who we are and the more we practice healing modalities (like practicing meditation for instance, and doing other activities that put us in a flow state; Jess highly recommends Audrey Wong, who is a gifted coach and has a podcast as well as personal sessions). As the current paradigm is shifting, we have an opportunity to evolve and heal into the powerful leaders each of us truly is ~ by being our true selves.
In this heartfirst conversation, gifted healer Jess Prestia (known as “Jess Be Inspired“) shares part of her discovery and journey into healing as a channeling reiki master, Davidji certified meditation teacher, as well as a crystal and sound healer. Jess explains how she initially became interested in healing, what her experience has been like, and how she's been guided to co-create personalized reiki healing sessions with which she's currently able to foster deep healing for clients. JessBeInspired breaks down what reiki healing is, what chakras are, and more - so for anyone new to this type of conversation who is curious about exploring healing, you will appreciate Jess' beautifully and clearly shared descriptions. For more on JessBeInspired, check out her website (www.jessbeinspired.com) where there is more information on Jess' offerings both in person and at a distance. You will appreciate Jess' sincerity, warmth, knowledge and natural healing ability.
In this heartfirst conversation, soul coach Audrey Wong shares pieces of her interesting and inspiring journey from childhood actor to business badass to now a transformative soul coach. Audrey Wong combines her skills as a powerful intuitive with a very successful background in computer science and business to foster deep healing through creating a method for root trauma release. Her life experiences and personal healing led Audrey to leave an impressive business career and to align herself more fully with her inner purpose and passion to serve others.
In this episode, Jess shares a very recent moment where she’s been emotionally triggered by not hearing back from someone she cares about. Even while being self-aware and realizing the lack of response probably has nothing to do with her, Jess shares her visceral response to the situation and how she will handle it. We are all human and to be affected and take something personally is natural for many of us, particularly when we care about someone else; however, we have the ability to shift our points of focus. It takes work and consistency and the most powerful go-to healthy approach to managing triggers is to meditate. Even if you don’t meditate regularly - you can do this. Taking four deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth (counting as you breathe if this helps direct your attention away from distracting thoughts) is a solid place to start. Knowing not to take things personally and practicing not doing so are two separate things; if you feel triggered, focusing on your breath for even just a few deep breaths can help you redirect your focus so you’re able to concentrate on positive thoughts while acknowledging and letting go of thoughts that lead us to less constructive places. Stay tuned for Jess King’s meditations to become available on multiple platforms soon.

After weeks of confinement now, many of us are experiencing shifts - not only in our daily routines but in our emotional state and in our levels of self-awareness. Jess King shares some personal insights on how we can do our best to not only survive this challenging time but manage to thrive throughout this period and beyond. Not repressing our feelings (instead acknowledging them) and refraining from binge-watching the news are just two important pieces of advice Jess offers. Enjoy this very personal and heartfelt message from Jess King who shares her thoughts and experiences while confined in an Airbnb studio in Bordeaux.
A heartfelt message from Jess King while she’s in quarantine in Bordeaux, France. During this extraordinary time while many are experiencing a wide array of unpleasant emotions and feeling isolated, it’s an ideal time for self-care, reflection and connecting (by phone, FaceTime, Skype or whatever you prefer) with those whose vibe resonates with our higher/best self. Difficult times allow us to strip away the BS from daily life and to connect with our most authentic self inside. What can you do today to make your day better? Is there anything you used to love doing that you haven’t done in awhile — or that you’ve always wanted to do? Maybe playing an instrument, drawing or creating art, cooking... whatever it is that comes to mind for you - go for it! Enjoy this personal and healing message from Jess as we begin week two of lockdown in France. Jess King is currently sharing free nightly guided meditations on Instagram @jesskingofficial at 9.30PM France time and free HIIT meditation workouts at @tnl58 3x week for anyone who wants an inspiring and deeply connective workout experience. Shared with loving, healing and compassionate vibes to you and your loved ones. Together we will get through this and come through it better than ever, day by day.
In this episode, Jess discusses an essential truth: that each of us has the power to awaken others - whether it’s a needed and direct reminder or an emotional trigger that needs healing in someone, our best teachers are each person we encounter in life ~ regardless of the situation. We are reflections of one another; we are one. The more we recognize this, the better we are able to heal ourselves and each other. And as overwhelming this concept may feel to some at times (it’s isn’t always easy to grasp in the moment) it’s also highly reassuring to realize we each serve an important purpose simply by being who we authentically are, sharing with others and receiving as well.
Are you accidentally holding yourself back? In this episode Jess King suggests we take a moment to reflect on our past year and how we may have unconsciously been preventing ourselves from reaching our personal goals. Self-awareness is the first step to breaking this very human pattern and learning to take action (even and especially when it’s uncomfortable). Through reflecting on the past year, ask yourself if you’re happy with your growth and be honest with yourself in terms of admitting where you may have been distracted or set off course a bit. Accepting (with kindness and self-love) where we are now is important in helping unable us to unblock and prepare ourselves for what is next. Feel Jess King’s authentic and heartfirst approach to allow yourself an opportunity to expand and evolve in the way you imagine. It’s an ideal moment to do this as we close a new year and decade in several weeks. Abundance is real; we can all do this. Cheers to a magical 2020 for each of you.
What is the difference between liking what you do and loving it ~ or loving it at an even deeper level? In this episode, Jess King shares a personal discovery she’s recently had in this area that has led to her opening a new door, defying and letting go of her self-limiting boundaries. Through living heartfirst, we face our fears and enable ourselves to expand and grow. It’s not easy to stay present each day; sometimes we become distracted or overwhelmed and feel like we are stuck on a certain path. It takes courage to do what isn’t easy in order to evolve. One way to reconnect ourselves is to spend more time in flow state (when we forget ourselves). When we do, we awaken and deepen our connection with our true selves. This episode is intended for anyone who wants to awaken this deeper connection, to share your unique gifts and serve your purpose in this life. Fact: It is never too late and you are right on time.
Jess King shares and expands on a beautiful and wise piece advice she received earlier in the day from coaching goddess Angela Manuel-Davis who reminds us to “be awkward and keep going”. This theme of pushing ourselves beyond what is comfortable and what looks good from the outside is a powerful and empowering message for how we can live our best lives; as most of us know from our personal experiences, it is during our greatest challenges, hardships and failures that we learn and grow the most. Jess expands on this while sharing several other useful and inspiring insights.

Most of us deal with shame at various points in our lives; when we don’t acknowledge and/or confront it, we create barriers that hold us back from being our best, happiest, most loving and successful selves.

Jess also shares her personal experience with shame and an issue she’s still dealing with today, hoping to inspire you to unmask your shame, dig into your self love and evolve into your beautiful self inside.
Do you ever feel exhausted because you’re giving too much of yourself to things or people who you’ve accidentally prioritized over yourself? Or stood silent and gone with the flow when you really didn’t agree about something? When we step away from who we really are and what we really want we decrease our personal power. Tapping into this and staying awake in our moments of weakness can help us evolve, get unstuck and realign ourselves.

Do you find yourself taking things personally and allowing this to hurt your state of heart and mind? If so, you’ll enjoy these heartfirst tips from Jess King, as she shares a few pieces of advice for highly sensitive souls.
How can we quickly calm ourselves down when we are triggered? How can we find a sense of peace when something is weighing heavily on our minds and in our hearts?

She encourages us to be leaders in our own lives by staying awake and actively spreading kindness and light throughout our daily lives.
