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!

The pandemic had since upturned our lives before we even knew it. With every overwhelming challenge we encounter, we are forced to be quick on our feet and adapt to these immense changes. Sometimes, in demanding situations such as these, taking a pause is crucial.
We invite you to take this time to be still and listen to yourself and your surroundings. Ask yourself, “How am I doing?”
In today’s episode, Octavia Raheem joins us to encourage us to shift our negative perspectives despite the uncertainties in our lives. She also shares how you can be courageous during these difficult times. These changes are often uncomfortable and terrifying, but Octavia hopes her book can provide you with companionship and comfort.

Episode Highlights
How A Community is Built
●Although Octavia closed down her yoga studio in 2020, the essence of the space still continues.
●A true community is built on heart and spirit.
●Many spaces still fail to make their guests feel welcomed and accepted.
●Her experience with discrimination and racism led her to create and ensure a safe space for everyone — her yoga studio.
Octavia’s Latest Book, “Pause, Rest, Be”
●Octavia’s latest book is about reflecting on the effects of the pandemic.
●It’s less about what she wanted to write and more about what needed to be said.
●The book is divided into three sections: endings, the liminal, and beginnings.
●She started her writing process with the “endings” and ended with the “beginning”.
You’re Not Facing Endings Alone
●Facing endings can be uncomfortable.
●The pandemic placed all of us in a time of immense change.
●Octavia hopes that the book can be a companion to those who feel alone during times of change and uncertainty.
Octavia’s Writing Process
●Octavia strives to embody the title of her book and be of integrity with her words.
●Although she’s not perfect, she aims to reflect her heartfulness and presence in the creative process of her book.
●She shares that her writing process is more like a rest journal.
●When we want to hear and learn insights, we need to be quiet and listen.
Learn to be Still
●The world wants to constantly fill the void and never rest.
●We may be strong and resilient, but we are not built to take in all content from social media.
●We consume so much content that we forget to listen to our own thoughts.
●It takes courage to be still because it challenges us to understand who we are when we’re doing nothing.
The Goal of “Pause, Rest, Be”
●Octavia hopes her readers will read the book with courage and feel hopeful, renewed, and fortified.
●Courage is not about being courageous; it’s about living with heart.

●Octavia feels radically loved by being able to walk on this Earth.
●The Earth is an expression of radical love.
