Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

Alisa Vitti is functional nutritionist, women’s hormone expert, best-selling author, and founder of FloLiving.com. She’s also known as the hormone whisperer. Alisa has opened up the conversation about menstruation while helping and inspiring women to tap into their inner wisdom and thrive all month long.   I’m so excited to share this conversation with you. This is something that we as women don’t talk about enough. I learned so much from Alisa about myself and my body. Yes, we talked about periods. I never realized how much information there is out there to help us understand our bodies more until this conversation.   Alisa has so many tips for us on using the tools around us to feel our best. She shares her journey of working through hormone issues herself, how our food screws our endocrine function, and how we can live our optimal health by understanding our hormones.   Radically FLO Alisa   Seeing a major gap in healthcare for hormone issues and searching for answers Getting diagnosed with PCOS at a young age and healing herself Making TV history by simulating menstrual blood on Dr. Oz   Radically Inspired Clarity   Your food has to change each week of your cycle because your hormones are changing. Understand what’s going on in your hormones is the fastest way for you to be free.   Alisa Vitti Answers…   What kind of tests can we ask our doctor for to understand our bodies better? What can we do to start owning our female health? What are your thoughts on IUD and similar birth control methods?   Radically Loved Quotes   “If you’re walking around with the belief that you should be eating the ‘perfect diet’ every single day, you are greatly misled. All dietary theory is predicated on the male hormonal pattern.”   “If you want to stifle the creative power of half the population, you do that by not giving them the roadmap to optimizing their health.”   “There is no destination with health. There is a constant evolution. You need to be in a dynamic, compassionate relationship with your body throughout your life.”   “None of those diets or exercise programs are predicated on female biology. You must sync with your cycle to be your healthiest self”   A Little More About Our Guest   Alisa built FLO Living as a virtual online health center to help women solve their hormonal symptoms from anywhere in the world. She published a book called WomanCode, which has been in the Top 50 best selling women’s health books of all time since it was published. Alisa is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She has a web series on Lifetime, and has been a regular contributor to CBS, Fox, Shape, Women’s Health, MindBodyGreen, and The Huffington Post. She also writes Yahoo Health’s Hormone Whisperer column. www.floliving.com

The two universal laws of impermanence are uncertainty and unpredictability. When life changes unexpectedly, we can often feel off balance, insecure, and unclear of what really matters and/or what to do next. This is normal. What can support us to reclaim our life and tap into our internal wisdom is re-asserting our strength of mind and heart. Mindfulness and compassion are two important qualities that increase our resilience. At this pivotal time in our world, we need to cultivate both. Compassion in action has the ability to heal and transform oneself and thus the world into a place that takes the welfare of all beings into consideration. How do I give away my power? When I listen to the critical and judgmental thoughts that disempower my worth, potential, and abilities. When I am going too fast. When I say yes, when I really mean no, or not yet. When I don’t listen to my feelings and needs. When I don’t stick up for myself and share my feelings and needs with others. When I am not taking good care of myself with exercise, meditation, nutrition, connection, sleep, self-care, etc. How do I feel empowered? When I slow down. When I ask for support. When I really listen and then take care and support my feelings and needs in action. When I share my truth in a kind and skillful way. When I claim my inherent good worth, kindness, and competence in the world. When I surround myself with people who love and accept me for me. When I spend time in nature. When I engage in healthy practices that nourish my mind, body, and heart like exercise, sleep, healthy food, connection, play, learning, and meditation. When I feel engaged in a community or group with a shared goal or intention. When I feel on purpose in my life. When I am creating. When I am helping others.

If you, too, have struggled with a toxic relationship, I hope this little instruction manual will help you. 1. Knowledge that you are in a difficult situation.. Your choices here are fairly limited, and, strangely, acceptance is always the best choice. You can judge and criticize the other person, but that will probably make you feel tense and lonely. Alternately, you could nurse your anxiety and despair that you’ll never be able to get along with them, which will make you feel stressed and sad. You can definitely deny their existence or pretend that they aren’t bothering you. You can block their texts and emails, and avoid every situation where they’ll turn up. These are all tactics of resistance, and they won’t protect you. Ironically, these tactics will allow the other person to further embed themselves into your psyche. What does work is to accept that your relationship with them is super hard, and also that you are trying to make it less hard. This gentle acceptance does not mean that you are resigned to a life of misery, or that the situation will never get better. Maybe it will—and maybe it won’t. Accepting the reality of a difficult relationship allows us to soften. And this softening will open the door to your own compassion and wisdom.   Trust me: You are going to need those things.   2. The Person will Blame you for their Emotions  This is not true. You are not responsible for their emotions. You never have been, and you never will be. Don’t take responsibility for their suffering; if you do, they will never have the opportunity to take responsibility for themselves.

Layla Fanucci is an artist and entrepreneur, renowned for her signature style of cityscape paintings. She exhibits her work at a number of impressive galleries and museums around the world, including The Louvre in Paris.   When Layla discovered her true calling, it was the only drive she needed to propel her forward in her career. Her success story was so pivotal to me and my journey. I’ve spoken with her daughter, Michelle Fanucci, on the podcast before and talked about how Layla’s story inspired me to make a huge change in my life.   In this episode, we talk about how Layla got to where she is today, her keys to success, and learning what our true calling is. This has been one of my favorite interviews, enjoy!     Radically Purposeful Layla   Nurturing her artistry and dedicating herself to painting 200 paintings in 2 years Figuring out how to make art a business by focusing on each 50/50 Setting a goal to make as much as she did teaching or go back to her job   Radically Inspired Clarity   You have to focus on the one thing you love to make it happen. It takes devotion in order to succeed in your passion. You don’t have just one talent. In 10 years you might find another and nurture that. Later, you might find another. Nurture what you love and it will grow. Be very clear about what you really love to do. Being clear on that is the biggest step because then you can take steps to make it happen.   Layla’s Keys for Success   1) Find your passion 2) Have a plan 3) Work really hard 4) Focus on your goals 5) Give back    Layla Fanucci Answers…   How can you be an artist and be good at business? What if I don’t have anything I love to do? What’s the best advice you can give about following a passion?   Radically Loved Quotes   “When you follow your passion and you work really hard, the money follows.”   “Really dedicate your time to what you love to do. Your passion is nurtured and then you can climb up that ladder.”   “If you don’t believe in it, it’s probably not going to go far.”   “You can do anything, but no one’s going to give it to you. You’ve got to make it happen.”   A Little More About Our Guest   Driven by a desire to evoke her experience of the city, she achieves remarkable harmony in these resonant works. A musician before becoming a painter, she captures the rhythm of the great metropolis, the lyrical splendor of its skies and the cacophony of its streets. Looking at the scenes, one understands why people return time after time to theses places, like musical phrases we never tire of hearing, always finding something new in them. In Fanucci's dream like paintings, the relationships of building, massed like blocks, transmit the grandeur and intensity of the urban environment, framing the crowds that swarm below them. Dense, deeply felt, intriguing and masterfully painted, her cityscapes draw us in because of the passion in which they were created. www.laylafanucci.com/

On Black Girl in Om they learn and share wellness practices with one another, and through this work cultivate richer understandings of what it means to be healthy and beautiful from the inside out.   I was able to meet these two incredible ladies while I was in Chicago and have a radiant conversation with them about creating space for women of color in the wellness world.   Radically REAL Lauren and Deun   Turning to yoga to de-stress and not seeing many women of color Coming from the south and discovering health and wellness Creating images to show black women in places they haven’t been Making a sacred and special space within yoga and meditation   Radically Inspired Clarity   If you aren’t proactive about creating an inclusive environment, it’s not going to be inclusive. It’s so important to set the example of openness and acceptance.   Lauren and Deun Answer…   Why is there such a disparity in representation of women in color in yoga?

I would want anyone to experience that.”   “Keeping my eyes on the right thing helps me to always walk in my purpose.”   “Don’t dwell when there’s a missed opportunity.
