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!

Get ready for an empowering episode of Radically Loved as we dive into the inspiring journey of Brittany Means, a dynamic writer and editor who's breaking the cycle of abuse and rewriting her narrative. In this riveting conversation, we explore the intersections of poverty, abuse, and addiction while delving into the importance of recognizing signs of abuse and neglect.

Brittany opens up about the complexities of forgiveness, sharing her unique perspective on this transformative process. She bares it all on the vulnerability of memoir writing, detailing the surprises and challenges encountered during her courageous journey.

But that's not all – we get an exclusive sneak peek into Brittany's upcoming project on health and mental health within religious communities, promising thought-provoking insights.

In this episode, you'll discover that breaking the cycle of abuse requires self-awareness and a reflective examination of how past experiences shape our behavior. Recognizing signs of abuse and neglect becomes a crucial step in fostering a safe space for children to share their truths.

Takeaways
  1. Breaking the cycle of abuse requires self-awareness and reflection on how past experiences have shaped one's behavior.
  2. Recognizing signs of abuse and neglect is crucial in order to support children and create a safe environment for them to speak their truth.
  3. Forgiveness is a complex process that can be defined in different ways for different people. It is important to find a definition that aligns with one's own healing journey.
  4. Writing can be a cathartic tool for processing trauma, but it is essential to prioritize self-care and engage in grounding practices outside of writing.
  5. Memory is unreliable, and our brains can create different narratives of the same events. It is important to be aware of the limitations of memory when writing memoirs.
  6. Connecting with mentors and finding inspiration from other writers can be instrumental in developing one's own writing style and pursuing a career in writing.

This week Radically Loved welcomes Katie Silcox back to kick off 2024! Katie Slicox is author of the book 'Glow Worthy.' In this episode we discuss various topics including tantra, spiritual bypass, self-love, and the importance of mentors. Katie also guides a meditation practice. The conversation emphasizes the need for honesty, truth, and compassion in our spiritual journeys.

We Talk About:

  1. Tantra teaches that the very thing we want to avoid or run away from is often the key to our growth and healing.
  2. Spiritual bypassing is the repression of difficult emotions and the tendency to intellectualize or spiritualize our experiences instead of fully feeling them.
  3. Self-love is a journey that requires honesty, openness, and the ability to hold space for our own pain and imperfections.
  4. Having a mentor or teacher who can mirror our strengths and weaknesses with compassion and wisdom is a powerful form of radical love.
Episode Highlights:
00:00 Introduction and Book Discussion
08:22 Exploring Tantra
16:06 Understanding Spiritual Bypass
