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!

Coming Home to Your True Self with Christine Gutierrez

Have the words, “Look on the bright side!” ever helped you? Advice like this can be more damaging than helpful. The journey towards healing has never been straightforward. Although it's useful to maintain an optimistic outlook, you also have to allow yourself to feel negativity, seek acceptance, and find the strength to come home to your true self with kindness.

In today's episode, Christine Gutierrez will share the importance of understanding the two facets of healing and why feeling your negative emotions is much better than ignoring it altogether. She will also discuss her spiritual journey, the value of kindness and healthy love, working with women of color, and using tools to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. Christine will also talk to us about her new book, I Am Diosa, and how it can help people from different walks of life.

If you're on your journey back to your true self, especially in these crucial times, this episode is for you.

  2. Learn how to find healing without invalidating your true self or disregarding your negative emotions.
  3. Christine will share why she chose I Am Diosa as the title of her book and how it can resonate with people from different walks of life.



Episode Highlights

Christine's Spiritual Journey

  • Ever since Christine was young, she has always had a deep desire to connect to human suffering, help others who are struggling and make a difference in people's lives.
  • This passion led her to study psychology, philosophy, and mental health counseling.
  • Christine merges her modern therapeutic training with her spiritual path.

On I Am Diosa

  • Working with Diosa, the goddess's energy enabled Christine to realize that God has a feminine face.
  • The concept of Diosa empowered and helped Christine reclaim her true self.
  • For Christine, sharing is the calling of all healers.
  • She was worried that many people might not know what I Am Diosa But choosing and standing up for it as the title of her book, no matter what others might say, gives her a sense of cultural confidence.

What’s Wrong with Overemphasizing Positivity

  • The overemphasis towards keeping a positive attitude all the time is dismissive of the emotions and experiences of those who suffered intense trauma and abuse.
  • It creates a shallow healing process, unrealistic goals, and often discredits and minimizes the feelings and ownership of people's struggles.
  • It's vital to validate different spectrums of emotions and provide spaces to feel it.
  • Overemphasis on positivity can affect your daily life by preventing you from experiencing your full range of emotions.

Advice for Struggling Women

  • Owning your experiences and that you are a victim of someone else's dysfunction can be liberating.
  • "Just don't be a victim" advice is a very condescending way to approach people who experienced intense hardships and trauma.
  • Christine offers a different energetic tone by stating that you don't have to remain stuck in your past.
  • It is your duty to yourself to create a life of happiness despite your past because you're deserving and worthy of it.

The Importance of Kindness to Yourself

  • Christine is not a happy person all the time - she is often reflective and emotional.
  • It's essential to accept who you are, the life you're given, love, and be kind to yourself and your experiences.
  • Combine therapy with outside support and deep soul work to manage your emotions better. Expecting perfection will be harmful in the long run.
  • Healing requires continuous nurturing of enjoying life. It is not a simple before and after scenario.
  • Healing will involve mistakes and relapses – this is normal.

Working with Women of Color

  • Christine's I Am Diosa retreats give women space to share their feelings and situations freely. Also, to try, fail, and get back up again in their healing journey without judgment.
  • The 'medicine' for happiness is within all people.
  • Most of her clients are strong and wise women that were too busy to process their emotions and traumas.
  • Christine's role is to hold and remind them that they're all in this together.

Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Being a newly-married couple, Christine and her husband find it hard at first to pivot their routine amid the ongoing pandemic.
  • Allow yourself to accept that these are crazy times and that you're not alone in this journey.
  • Mental health support has to be accessible to all people during and after the pandemic. Find available resources to help you cope with overwhelming emotions.
  • Christine aims to create a global space for people to connect spiritually through the digital medium.

Ways to Cultivate Healthy Love

  • Love, warmth, and touch are essential tools in reminding clients of their worthiness and power.
  • Become aware of the unhealthy places in your life.
  • Look for the things you can do if you're in a healthy space.
  • Set your non-negotiables.
  • Listen to the full episode to hear specific examples of how to cultivate healthy love in your life.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[04:13] “Working with the goddess, working with Diosa, for me was a moment of realizing that there was a divine face of God. That there was a feminine divine face.”

[06:06] “It was a coming to of my own cultural confidence of being like, it doesn't matter what anyone says, this is my work. And this is going to resonate with who it's meant to resonate with.”

[08:53] “There is no bad or good emotion. There are more difficult emotions to process, of course, and it's about giving ourselves the space to say, ‘Hey, I'm feeling bad. I'm having a shitty day.’”

[17:52] “This is not a simple before and after, right? I'm a living, breathing woman with a sea of emotions, right? I rise and fall like the tide. So therefore that means that I'm allowing myself to constantly look at the places where I can deepen both my healing and my joy.”

[26:02] “I think one of the biggest pieces that we can give ourselves is allowing ourselves to accept and acknowledge that these are some crazy times and that you're not alone.”

Traveling is a joyful exercise when you need inspiration and a break from your routine. Your ability or inability to move impacts your creativity. With the current travel restrictions and civil unrest around the world, no one is immune from getting feelings of uncertainty and anxiety during these trying times.

In today’s episode, Meera Lee Patel gives us a glimpse into her creative process when writing her book, My Friend Fear. She tells us how the pandemic and her pregnancy affected her creative flow. She also shares her stories of overcoming fear by feeling at home with herself, no matter where she is.

If you feel stuck physically, emotionally, and mentally, this episode is for you!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover the magic that could happen when you face your fears.
  2. Learn how you can let go and let life shape itself.
  3. Find out how Meera creates her own calm.


Episode Highlights

Leaving Your Comfort Zone

  • A New York native, Meera left Brooklyn to work on her second book, My Friend Fear.
  • She realized that she needed to face all her fears to honestly write her book. So she left her job, traveled alone, and worked on being an artist and a writer.
  • Her decision to move to the countryside wasn’t intentional. But in the course of writing her book, she worked at an illustration studio based in Nashville, where she connected with the artist community.
  • Meera never dreamed of living in the countryside. But some things shape themselves when you decide to be open to them.

Feeling at Home Within Yourself

  • Even if you’re afraid, Meera says you should do things that excite you.
  • Your fear of rejection may feel like the worst thing that could happen, but you can overcome this by being yourself and letting people know you.
  • The biggest gift of mindfulness and discernment is finding peace within yourself.

From the City to the Countryside

  • Countryside living offers peace and quiet that is nearly impossible in the city.
  • Under pandemic circumstances, the countryside also offers a lot of space where you can feel free to walk around without encountering others who may be sick.
  • However, living in the countryside makes you feel isolated and lonely.
  • As a city girl, Meera isn’t used to driving, but that’s how you get around in the countryside.

Creativity Requires Calm

  • Living in Nashville got Meera back into her creative flow because she has fewer distractions and a larger space in her home studio.
  • Connecting with your highest self is a challenge when there’s so much frenetic energy, especially when you live in the city.
  • Nature helps shift your perspective, especially when you are feeling anxious.

On Her Pregnancy

  • Being pregnant during the pandemic has negatively affected Meera’s body and emotions, hampering her creative work.
  • The pandemic exposed all possible emotions, including guilt.
  • Meera thinks she still hasn’t processed her feelings of disappointment and anxiety related to the pregnancy.

Nothing Is Permanent

  • Anxiety can be paralyzing because it eliminates the idea that life could be different.
  • When you accept that nothing is permanent, it gives you back some sense of control.
  • Meera also worked hard on accepting the things she can’t control.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[04:55] “When I open myself up to the world, when I'd let somebody see me for who I was, not for who I thought they wanted me to be, I was welcomed.”

[16:55] “In order to be creative and make the work, you need time alone. So much of being a creative is solitude.”

[19:13] “Whatever was cycling in your head and giving you such anxiety, maybe that is a very small part of life and your life and a very small part of what is affecting you in this grander scheme.”

[26:51] “Something that helps me always with my anxiety is remembering that the way I feel right now is temporary. Just like everything else in life, this moment is temporary, and it’s going to pass, and it won’t be like this forever.”

[29:14] “Losing control, and letting go of control, and learning to be okay with that has been really freeing. Instead of making me more anxious that anything can go wrong, instead it makes me feel like, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen. And that means that there is a lot of possibility.’”

About Meera

Meera Lee Patel is an illustrator and writer based in Nashville, Tennessee. Coming from Brooklyn, she began working as an editor at a publishing company after graduating with degrees in English and Journalism & Media Studies. A self-taught artist, her stationery and gift line are inspired by nature and her home country, India.

She published three journals, namely, Start Where You Are, Made Out of Stars, and Create Your Own Calm. Her works encourage self-exploration and help build a practice of introspection through art. Her book My Friend Fear features Meera’s reflections about her fears, thoughtful questions on creativity, and beautiful watercolor paintings.

Episode Highlights

Studying the Bhagavad Gita

  • Richard and Mary published a book called When Love Comes to Light as a practical interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita.
  • When you read the Bhagavad Gita as a guidebook, it provides a lot of teachings you can apply to your life.
  • The world is one organism, and all of us are interconnected.
  • Richard and Mary approach the teachings to learn to look at the context of the situations we encounter.

The Relationship Between Mind & Ego

  • Problems arise when the mind and ego start to work together.
  • The ego wants to be the hero solving problems.
  • The mind makes decisions and guides you in taking action.
  • Mary says that you should determine your motivations to know and decide the appropriate steps to maintain a healthy relationship between your mind and ego.

Waking Up to Your Intelligence

  • We wake up to moments of intelligence every day in different situations.
  • A moment of intelligence would be akin to your gut feelings or what you feel when speaking the truth.
  • It's also a feeling of vulnerability rooted in strength and knowledge of your connection to others.
  • Yoga practices wake up the body so that you start to become more attentive.
  • When you get that feeling, you don’t care whether you’re any more enlightened or not.

On Practicing with Your Ego

  • The ego is the identification with the self as separate.
  • To practice discernment is to bring consciousness to every action or inaction.
  • Richard described that ego is a divine function, but attachment to your ego is not.
  • You can use your ego to learn how to act and do things to get feedback, but don’t identify with it.

Teaching Mindfulness Through a Book

  • The Gita teachings are supposed to be difficult because it asks you to look again and again to learn mindfulness.
  • Mary says that keeping a sense of humor, laughing at your mistakes, and learning to let go are acceptable mindfulness practices.

Dealing with Exhaustion at a Global Scale

  • Finding it difficult to sit with your practice is normal under current circumstances, but you should still show up and do it.
  • Those who have learned yoga and meditation practice in less turbulent times will feel prepared to face the difficulties even though it is sometimes inappropriate.
  • People who haven’t developed their practices before the pandemic will feel exhaustion, fatigue, and fear more strongly than others.

The Gita as a Love Story

  • Mary sees the Bhagavad Gita not as a war story but as a love story about connecting to the divinity within ourselves.
  • Richard says that the book names the enemies like lust, anger, and greed.
  • A war inside the mind is one interpretation of the teachings in the Bhagavad Gita.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[14:07] “It’s a way of learning to look at context. You see things and to look at all the different religious manifestations and to see through them, to what they’re actually trying to accomplish rather than let your ego buy into some formula that makes you superior to others.”

[28:01] “Life is a wave pattern. If you can ride those waves with the ability at any instant to engage, that would be amazing.”

[34:55] “It's an important time to be kind to yourself and to be really careful. And not to be so dogmatic that you become more tight or tuned out from the Other.”

[35:48] “When there’s this genuine sense of connectedness and a genuine concern for the world, the environment, etc, then that’s when it starts to stabilize enough that we take the context of what’s going on and we help see each other see what we can do.”

[38:07] “If you feel like you've been injured by someone else or by a situation and you respond, take the moment, even in just a flash, to really see if your motivation for your action is in line with bigger intentions in life, say, the intention to relieve suffering. Are your motivations self-serving more than they are truly in line with your intention?”

Episode Highlights

Resonating with Another Person’s Energy

  • When you honor your softness and own who you are, you will naturally be attracted to other people.
  • Spirit-led connections make people feel safe, especially in a world where there’s not enough of that.

How Grief Made Ace Turn to Yoga

  • Ace experienced traumatic things early in her life. Her mother passed away when she was 19, so Ace had to figure things out on her own.
  • She took her life too seriously because she had to survive.
  • Ace had a job where she had to travel a lot. She did not stay long anywhere, so she thought she did not have to feel for too long.
  • Yoga gave Ace a sense of connection and belonging. It saved her from darkness.

Taking Ownership of Ace’s Name

  • For most of her life, Ace had always been called Alicia. Her aunt called her Lisa.
  • Ace believes when you discover who you are, you start to own the power in your name.

How Yoga Saved Ace’s Life

  • Ace acknowledged the death of her mother only six years after her death.

  • There is so much more to yoga than its physical aspect.
  • Yoga helped Ace find what works for her and be consistent with it.

What Ace Learned About Herself This Quarantine

  • Ace found that she was working way too much and spreading herself thin because she did not want to feel alone.
  • She learned she can be alone in her space and still feel secure. She can be vulnerable yet brave when she asks for help.
  • Ace needs to be consistent in her meditation, yoga practice, and therapy.
  • She can start a business without knowing a thing about it and still succeed.
  • With all the civil uprisings and movements, Ace learned that her voice is a powerful gift. She is here to be a teacher and stop shying away from her gift.

Ace’s Form of Activism

  • Ace realized she did not have to go out and march in protest. She has a different approach to activism.
  • For Ace, activism is empowering people to remember who they are and supporting people of color.
  • Ace also does workshops on grief. She does the things she is good at and improves on them for the greater good of her people.

People’s Perception of Yoga Instructors

  • Some people think yoga instructors are enlightened and have everything figured out.
  • However, yoga instructors are also human beings. Like everyone else, they have things to navigate.
  • Ace does not want to get to the point where she is so enlightened that she cannot learn from anyone anymore.

Ace’s Idea of Freedom

  • When Ace did her first workshop, she did not know what “I am free” meant. She just thought it was something that feels good to say.
  • However, she learned that freedom is being free to change, grow, learn, and love. It also meant having grace in falling and reaching for someone to ask for help.

How the Pandemic Forced Us to Reset

  • Ace likes that she is home more and making her space her own.
  • Since we are all stuck at home, Ace believes we should feel good and improve our surroundings to make them more comfortable.
  • We should acknowledge our emotional and mental situation and talk about them with other people.
  • Ace loves that she can just sit and read a book or watch hours of television shows.

[19:24] “Go with what you know right now. Go with what feels like breathing to you right now, and that is your form of activism.”

[24:23] “I can still be strong, and I can still be vulnerable, and I can still be brave at the same time when asking for help.”

[27:12] “I learned that my voice is powerful. My voice is beyond this realm, and my light and my gift is beyond. And I'm here to be a teacher and stop shying away from that, stop hiding from my gifts.”

[34:11] “I don't have it all figured out, and neither do you. And that's okay. There's beauty in not having it all figured out because, if you have it all figured out, then what else is there for you to do?”

Embracing Your Highest Vision Through Spiritual Healing with Sah D’Simone

The road to spiritual healing can be difficult. There will be moments where giving up will seem like a more attractive option. But no matter the challenge, you must find things that would make you feel free. Finding and knowing your source of joy is the first step on the road to happiness. Through joy and healing, you can let go of things which destroy you.

Sah D’Simone joins us in this episode to help us understand the importance of choosing the right path for you. Every person's path to inner peace and finding themselves will be different. Some might find solace in science. Others discover joy through prayer, religion, or meditation.

Tune in and learn why you should commit to an outlet that makes you shine rather than suppresses your true self.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Be inspired by Sah D’Simone’s life experiences and learn how he stayed committed to his spiritual healing through meditation.
  2. Discover how you can take the lead to improve yourself spiritually and mentally.
  3. Know yourself and understand the importance of choosing the path that is best for you.


Episode Highlights

On Being Authentic


  • Being authentic now means being grounded and present.
  • Authenticity means committing to staying consistent with your healing.
  • Let your heart exercise your best qualities and get rid of your negativity to experience radical authenticity.



Sah’s Background


  • Sah’s family is originally from Brazil. They eventually moved to Florida. 
  • He tried substances like drugs and alcohol while living in LA.
  • Sah started a fashion magazine with his friends.
  • He struggled with depression and anxiety.
  • Listen to the entire episode for Sah’s journey and experiences as he discovered meditation.



A Trip to India


  • Going to India was Sah’s radical move. He mapped his trip and planned to learn from South Indian gurus.


  • But the moment he saw the Dalai Lama, Sah knew he will learn something from him.


  • Sah bought a ticket to India and went on a 10-day silent retreat. The people in the retreat reflected something simple but deep to him—he is innately good. His goodness is not circumstantial; it’s unconditional.
  • They also meditated on death, which gave him a psychosomatic response as he reflected on the life he’s been living.
  • Sah listened to the Dalai Lama talk, whose words landed so deeply for him. It’s what put him on his current path.



Sah’s 30-Day Meditation Retreat in Kathmandu, Nepal


  • This experience was a moment of reflection and self-evaluation.
  • Sah found himself crying and broken several moments during the day. He slowly made peace with the feeling that he is a mistake.
  • On their last day, Sah took a vow to commit to healing. 
  • His desire to heal was selfish; he only wanted to feel better. But led him to the right choice and path.



Life Lessons from Sah

  • Learn to approach everything with joy. 
  • Suicidal thoughts are a narrative that you regularly visit; pause when you have them.
  • Joy is innate to all people.
  • Look for things that you can regularly do that awaken unconditional joy.

Graduating From Family Trauma


  • Sah had a TEDx talk about transgenerational trauma, where he shared his grandmother’s suicide story.
  • Science tells us that our genetics embody who we are. 
  • Karma tells us that everything we are today is the handiwork of ourselves.
  • Listen to the full episode to hear Sah explain more about epigenetics!




  • Find what sets you free. 
  • Between karma and science, choose what works for you.
  • Every state of mind matters; your words and actions matter. The life you are living right now is a consequence of all of your past actions. 
  • The aspects of how karma blossoms in your life: how clean your space is, the way you see the world, the way the world sees you, and the overall tendencies of the mind.

Navigating Mental Health & Transformation During the Pandemic


  • Do not be focused on labels.
  • Seek professional help and look for ancient practices.
  • Find people who will be your spiritual support.
  • It is essential to stay committed to your healing.



Reclaiming Words


  • We’re creatures of meaning. It’s important to reclaim words in a way that impacts your internal world.
  • “Crack baby” is a metaphor for being a wild, loving, and free person, but it can also mean living without accountability.
  • High vision is living a life of purpose and being in control of your mind. With high vision, you can learn altruism.
  • Surrender is patience: surrender means to understand that not everything can happen immediately.


Your Spiritual Path

  • For Sah, being on a spiritual path is means constant unlearning and remembering.
  • It is when you don’t feel your teachers or books are subduing your best qualities.



  • Spiritually Sassy welcomes and celebrates your extraness as the pathway to your freedom.


  • Some practices may not work for you.
  • Whatever you want to do, remember to choose a path that develops your best qualities and removes your worst.



5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[15:53] “As we start to feel better, the natural impulse of the heart is to serve.”

[37:11] “Be consistent to what's unfamiliar.

[37:39] “To do something different, to go out of your way to choose to drink more water, to choose to sit down, to concentrate your mind, to breathe in a way that's healing, to eat in a way that supports your awakening— all the things that we talked about. It takes a little bit of devotional discipline. But I got to tell you guys, I'm sitting here today because of that devotional discipline.”

[46:37] “The problem is the sense of urgency that we want things to happen right in this moment. And if it doesn't, then I am miserable.”

[50:38] “Whatever you're wanting to do, just go to a path where your best qualities are developed, and your worst qualities are removed.”

About Sah

He is also known as an international best-selling author and the pioneer of the Spiritually Sassy healing movement. Sah continues to infect his audience with enthusiasm by incorporating ancient Tantric Buddhism, modern psychology, meditation, and nutrition to help people heal.
