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!

This week on #WisdomWednesdays, Roger Frampton joins Rosie to delve into the power of movement and how it correlates to mindset.

The wellness community has preached the benefits of exercise and movement for a long time. But with our fast-paced world and hefty work culture, we tend to disregard it until unexplainable pains begin to surface. Learning the power of movement will help you strengthen your body, mindset, and attitude in different aspects of life.

A successful relationship needs both partners to build trust and validate the other. So if one partner doesn’t feel respected or loved, the relationship will inevitably fall apart.
One way couples unintentionally ignore the feelings of their significant other is through invalidation.

By belittling the emotions of our loved ones, we are indirectly saying that we don’t value them. How can we avoid falling into this pitfall? Unfortunately, there’s no precise answer to this. But we can always start with the basics—build trust and offer genuine apologies and heartfelt consideration to our loved ones.

Episode Highlights
Matthew Ten Years Ago
●Matthew believed he was a decent person and a good partner.
●When we are unaware of hurting others, it diminishes our responsibility to the consequences of our actions.
●Today, Matthew understands the gravity of his actions to his loved ones.
●A person’s happiness sometimes depends on the awareness and validation of their significant other to their experiences.
Why Relationships Fail
●Failure to do simple and small tasks for your partner shows indifference to their feelings.
●Relationships end when someone’s feelings are hurt or ignored.
●Someone might not feel safe in their relationship.
●Someone with a healthy set of boundaries will voluntarily leave a harmful relationship.
●Paying attention to the small things creates a lasting relationship.
On Keeping a Relationship
●Couples break up because of the absence of trust and safety in their relationship.
●Deep wounds are carved into someone’s heart when they’re unloved and disrespected by their significant other.
On Saving Relationships
●There is a limit to how much betrayal and pain someone can take.
●Promising to care and love someone is irrelevant when you inflict pain on them.
●Demonstrating love through actions is just lip service. Couples need to learn how to build trust, safety, and respect.
Habits to a Healthier Relationship
●Validation and consideration are two habits needed to maintain a happy relationship.
●Validate your partner’s feelings. When we disregard our loved one’s emotions, their trust slowly slips away.
●Be mindful of the person with whom you share space.
The Invalidation Triple Threat
●There are three distinct ways to invalidate our partners: gaslighting, understatement, and defensiveness.
●Gaslighting happens when we discredit and correct the emotions felt by our significant other.
●Understatement means considering our partner's feelings as an overreaction.
●Defensiveness is defending your harmful actions and implies you would do them again.
●Invalidation breeds mistrust. Listen to the full episode to hear how Matthew’s marriage ended because of discrediting this wife’s feelings.
Towards a Better Response
●Acknowledge your fault when you unintentionally hurt others.
●Understand how a seemingly trivial accident resulted in pain.
●Learn to accept the emotional needs and wants of your better half.
The Importance of Apology
●Take responsibility for your offending behavior and be genuinely sorry for hurting the person you love.
●There are four steps to an effective apology. Listen to the whole episode to know more about it!
●The cornerstone habits of a successful relationship are communication, validation, love, support, and care.

This week on Wisdom Wednesdays, Rosie and Katie talk about the importance of embracing the changes in your life.

We get different reactions whenever we look at old photos of ourselves. Some of us feel nostalgic, some feel embarrassed, and some are even in disbelief. It could be the old hairstyle, fashion choices, or even the way we posed for those pictures — all these remind us of our humble beginnings.

They also remind us how things have changed. As many years passed, you’ve now embodied not just a different appearance but also varying views, opinions, and principles. As we go through new experiences every day, how can we fully embrace these changes?

Life is full of hardships and struggles. Often, we fall for the trap of negative energy when things go amiss. We dive deeper and deeper into this rabbit hole of negativity until it’s all we can see. But we don’t realize that we are in complete control of our life. The words we speak, the thoughts we think, and the actions we take are all up to us. All this starts with channeling the right energy into our being.

In this episode, Christy Whitman joins us again to talk about how energy forms everything in our lives. She discusses how the words we speak affect our thoughts, emotions, and energy. Then, she elaborates on the role of self-awareness and self-actualization in controlling our emotions, desires, and actions. Finally, Christy gives us a sneak peek at her latest book The Desire Factor.

Do you frequently work late at night? Do you like to party with your buddies till morning? Or do you have a child that always keeps you up? If yes, there's a high chance that you don't get enough sleep.

Hustle culture tells us that sleep is for the weak. But, on the contrary, sleep is essential. Sleep and mental health are inextricably connected. Unfortunately, due to work, family, and other responsibilities, many of us do not get the needed seven or eight hours of sleep. It's all too easy to get into the habit of drinking another cup of coffee to get us through the day. However, by doing this, we are also sacrificing our physical and mental health.

We've all had adverse experiences that have shaped who we are in the present. Like mud in a vessel, they are hard to remove and scrape off. They block our sight and steer us in the wrong directions. Sadly, not many people are able to carry out the journey towards healing intentionally. But spiritual transformation takes time and conscious effort, and it starts by looking inwards. Once you do, you'll start seeing the light once blocked in your vessel.
In this episode, Ryan Blair, serial entrepreneur and CEO of AlterCal, joins us to talk about his journey to cultivating his resilience and spirituality. Ryan shares the internal work that led him to the path he walks today. He delves into the concept of removing the mud in the vessel in his spiritual work. Ryan also discusses the spiritual warfare he went through and how it has transformed him. Finally, he shares a miracle he witnessed with his son upon going through spiritual work.

Amidst the worldly chaos, radical love and understanding are what we need most. However, we struggle with attaining one thing — contentment. Being in a state of contentment does not equal to idle actions and remaining static. It means accepting what we have and where we are, while radiating positivity and kindness to those around you.

In today's episode of Wisdom Wednesday, Tessa and Rosie highlight steps we can take to be in a state of contentment. As part of reaching contentment, radical love is understanding your goals and desires. Can they help you in attaining ultimate happiness? Or does it still leave you wanting to achieve more?

●Rosie hopes her book can be a tool for everybody to write their own story.
5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
[05:45] Tessa: “...what we need right now — more than anything — is not only radical love but the ability to look at both sides and try to find a common ground try to find a way forward.”

[11:58] Tessa: “[Regarding prayer] May you remember that you will always be okay. May you find a white light that guides you and keeps you safe. May you have hope, help and happiness along the way.”

[15:45] Tessa: “When I'm not in that state of being of contentment, where am I in my headspace, in my energetic body, usually, it's in a state of scarcity or lack mentality. That shows up in the way of like, not good enough, shaming, blaming, don't have enough.”

[37:01] Rosie: “I thought of the moment when I was a child and heard my first drive by shooting, watching my belly rise and fall — I felt my body contracting again. ‘Just breathe’, I told myself. You're okay.”

[38:40] Rosie: “When you experience moments that leave deep impressions, you don't need to dissect them. You don't need to figure out how or why they worked. They worked. That's enough to move forward.”

Human creativity and advanced technology have allowed beauty trends to perpetually shift throughout the years. However, existing societal conventions have continued to bind us to unrealistic, one-dimensional beauty standards.

As we struggle to maintain society’s expectations, we must realize that physical appearance is just the tip of the iceberg of a more complex concept of beauty. When you examine deeper, you will understand that real beauty is found deep within, and you can only unravel it once you foster confidence and self-acceptance.

In this episode, Naked Beauty Podcast's host Brooke DeVard Ozaydinli joins us to delve into the world of beauty. She talks about the experience that inspired her to create her own beauty platform and what it's like to run a podcast. Brooke also shares tips on how to handle other people on social media. Finally, we dive deep into the concept of internal and external beauty and why beauty is something subjective.

If you want to know how you can unravel your naked beauty to the world, this episode is for you!

[3:03] What Inspired Brooke to Create a Beauty & Wellness Platform
●Brooke has a strong interest in delving into how people express themselves through beauty.
●Choices made within the realm of beauty reflect people’s personalities.
●Her first internship was in Vogue Magazine. Tune in to the full episode to hear about Brooke’s experience in Vogue!
●The starting salary of Vogue editors is only around $22,000 a year. Most Vogue editors are well off and don’t need it, but Brooke needed to make money.
[5:06] Getting Into Beauty
●Now, Brooke works in the more lucrative tech career path, but she has always loved fashion.
●If you take ten women in a white t-shirt and jeans, there are still things that would make them stand out.
●Brooke loves asking people and getting deep about beauty.
●For her, word of mouth is the strongest indication a product is good.
[6:18] Starting a Podcast
●You can’t start a podcast and expect to immediately make a ton of money.
●She was ecstatic the first time the podcast got 200 listeners for a single episode.
[9:20] The Intricacy of the Beauty Market
●Beauty customers are some of the most discerning customers in the world. They want to know everything before buying anything.
●There is a rise in celebrities starting their beauty brands without any expertise.
●It’s difficult to get honest feedback and reviews nowadays, with numerous Youtubers having branded content and magazines filled with advertised products.
●Brooke loves hearing people’s favorite products on her podcast because they are real.
[12:29] Brooke’s Driving Force in Reaching Her Life’s Vision
●Brooke has two Instagram accounts. One is her personal account for pure fun (@brookedevard); the other is for her beauty community (@nakedbeautyplanet).
●She believes it’s better to show up on the Internet as fully realized people with many interests than niching down.
●Social media is about being intentional. Naked Beauty Planet aims to be a safe, inclusive community where people can freely talk about beauty.
●Brooke believes that beauty should be fun, and she cultivates a fun community by hanging out with her followers on her personal account.
[16:59] Handling People on Social Media
●Many people online are offensive and judgmental.
●There's a lot of judgment that gets put on moms on social media and in real life.
●There’s a huge miscalculation around what’s appropriate to say to strangers online. Often, it’s a case of projection.
●The majority who feel empowered to share their judgment about Brooke are white women.
●A lot of it is around setting boundaries on your space. Listen to the full podcast to hear Rosie’s experience and insight on boundary setting!
[22:03] How Brooke Deals with Judgment and Shaming
●Acknowledge that some of them mean well. Sometimes, they are helpful.
●Everything is a learning experience.
●Identify constructive feedback from the comments you should ignore.
●Even if you disagree with the feedback, it's still helpful in some aspects.
●Hearing from people with different and diverse experiences from yours can help you create more empathetic content.
[28:57] Internal Beauty vs. External Beauty
●Brooke thinks you cannot have one without the other.
●People that radiate beauty have an inner peace around them.
●People who are physically attractive but are unkind don't have the factor that draws you to them.
●Having confidence in how you hold yourself and interact with other people is what makes you a beautiful person.
[31:04] Cosmetic Procedures as an Approach to Beauty
●While Brooke has chosen not to have Botox or fillers, she’s not against them.
●We live in a society where we’re constantly trying to reverse the clock. However, true beauty has nothing to do with that.
●If it makes them feel better, there's no judgment for those who choose to change or enhance their features.
●Still, some people can lose sight of the compass of where they really want to be from getting procedures constantly done.
[37:48] On Pretty Privilege
●Some people have the privilege of having a symmetrical face and conventionally attractive features.
●These people are naturally very beautiful without doing anything.
●Not welcoming the idea of cosmetic procedures may come from a place of privilege a lot of people don’t have.
●It goes back to listening to feedback and learning to be sensitive.
[38:53] Beauty and Attraction are Subjective
●Beauty is personal.
●Rosie and Brooke look up to women that have embraced their age. Brooke gave the character of Carrie Bradshaw as an example.
●What attracts many of us is a person's personality instead of physical appearance.
●Attraction has so little to do with physical perfection. There’s an unspoken thing you can feel that makes you drawn to a person.
[43:53] On Self-Acceptance
●Brooke’s husband is very accepting of who she is.
●"When do you feel most beautiful?" is a question that has been asked in every episode of the Naked Beauty Podcast. People’s answers to the question rarely have to do with their physical appearance.
●Brooke is able to give herself the grace of self-acceptance. But it can be easy to forget this sometimes.
●Your perception of what’s beautiful should not be dictated by what other people think.
●Brooke feels radically loved when she’s given the space to be her authentic self — to show her naked beauty.
5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
[03:23] “There are choices being made that reflect your personality, which I think is so interesting—beauty is this way of talking without talking.”
[05:17] If you take ten women in a white t-shirt and jeans, there are still going to be things about them that make them stand out and make them unique—in terms of the way they choose to do their hair, in terms of the way they choose to do their makeup, the way that they choose to accessorize, even the way that they carry themselves, to be quite honest.”
[28:20] “Sometimes, when you hear from people that have different experiences from yours and diverse experiences from yours, it really helps to make your content more empathetic.”
[30:17] “It's not just about making sure you have the perfect skincare routine; it's making sure you have that confidence [in] the way that you hold yourself as you walk into the room, the way that you are interacting with other people—all of that comes together to make you a beautiful person.”
[43:22] “Attraction has so little to do with physical perfection.”

Episode Highlights
Alyson’s Journey with Animals
●Before writing the book, Alyson went through deep initiations and incredible medicinal challenges.
●She shares that her shamanic path is all about integrity and embodiment. Alyson did not plan on becoming a shaman, her spiritual journey started as a way to heal herself.

●She also had three supporter power animals: the bear, deer, and frog.
●Frogs taught her to leap forward while the deer led her to her now-husband. Find out more about Alyson’s journey with animals in the full episode!
What’s My Totem Animal?
●Every animal represents different healing traits and wisdom teachings.
●Animals will manifest themselves into your life based on your struggles and what you need the most.
●If you’re wondering: “What’s My Totem Animal?” Alyson recommends going into a shamanic journey with a trusted shaman who can help you meet your core animal.
●It's not just the animals’ job to show up and help. You also need to be mindful of them and lean into their teachings.
●You can also call on animals for help during specific situations. Find out how by listening to the episode!
What Your Totem Animal Can Feel Like
●Rosie figured out the answer to “What’s My Totem Animal?” earlier in her life. She shares this story in Alyson’s book.
●When she was growing up, seeing a dragonfly get hurt made her feel physical pain too.
●Since that moment, dragonflies always remind Rosie of resilience.
●The dragonfly also represents adaptability, mysticism, magic, the element of water, ease, grace, and truth.
The Whale and Shadow Work
●The whale has been showing up for Alyson lately. This animal represents facing your blindspots and doing shadow work.
●There’s a lot of disruption and chaos happening all around the world and we need to face ourselves and do the work needed to grow.
●Facing our shadows can be intimidating, but the whale is there to be a loving guide to face our darkest selves.
Alyson’s Recommended Animals to Everyone
●She suggests for everyone to work with bird medicine.
●For one, the seagull is all about cleaning up trash and unnecessary things.
●Meanwhile, the owl represents awakening and getting out of delusion.
Why It’s Important to do Shadow Work
●Being a shaman, or embodied teacher, is not about being perfect. We are all human beings.
●There will always be lessons and experiences we can evolve from.
●It’s important to do integrity checks, where you investigate whether you’re in a blind spot or not.
●Facing uncomfortable and terrifying things is also crucial because that’s how you’ll understand the truth of who you are.
●If you don’t do shadow work, you will bring messy energy into your interactions, even though you have the best intentions at heart.
Becoming Open to Guidance
●We can experience pain-body as a result of traumatic experiences. You may find yourself in a cycle of suffering or reacting in an elevated or exaggerated manner.
●Don’t beat yourself up when this happens and instead become more aware of your thoughts and actions. Reflect on whether you may have traumas under the surface.
●If you have friends who have done the shadow work themselves, you can open yourself up to them and ask for their perspectives and insights.
●You have the power to change anything at any time. There may be stories you’re telling about yourself that may simply not be true.
●Be open to spiritual guidance.
Insights and Applications Go Hand-In-Hand
●Many people attend healing ceremonies, but often don’t change after the session.
●Plant medicines are generously helping to amplify your healing, and it’s your duty to change your life based on the information you perceived.
●Ask yourself: “How can I implement this change in my life?”
How Alyson Feels Radically Loved
●Alyson used to define success from external measures, like achieving in sports and media.
●However, she has found that success is defined by her ability to share unconditional love with others.
