Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hi 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!

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[17:08] “The truth is the moon goes light and the moon goes dark. We have days, we have nights, we have good and we have bad . And those things have to balance.”

[31:15] “And I think food is an ultimate connector as human beings. It doesn't matter what you believe, who you're voting for, what town you live in, what color of your skin, what your sexual orientation is — we all eat.”

[31:57] “I think if the pandemic has taught a lot of us one thing, it is that being home, and slowing down, and connecting with these simple processes of eating, and cooking together, and cooking for our loved ones, and cooking for ourselves. Maybe it's reminded us that these are important things and they aren't things to just rush through.”

[44:32] “I always know that I have been put exactly where I'm supposed to be at the exact right moment I'm supposed to be — good or bad.”

[46:23] “The universe makes me feel like it always has my back. I always feel like I'm in this hammock, sometimes it swings one way or the other, but I'm always supported by it.”
