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!

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.
●It was only through working with shamans that she found her calling. Through that experience, she also understood that her core power animal is the black jaguar.
●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.

[35:08] “When you tend to find yourself in a cycle of suffering or anguish or pain that just seems to perpetuate, that's a big sign that you're in pain-body and need to do some shadow work.”
