From heaviness and despair to love – conversation with Irene and Shannon


From heaviness and despair to love – conversation with Irene and Shannon

25 October 2023

If there’s one thing I want you to know, it’s how completely different the direct experience of you is from what you’re experiencing through the head. You see, the mind will say things like: “I need to change my emotional state”, “I need to be happier”, “I need to change the anxiety” and “I need to change my thinking”.

When you connect with you underneath the layers of identification, on the other hand… You’re no longer dependent on any emotional state or thinking, because you’re the ocean underneath the waves.

That’s exactly what Shannon and Irene experienced as they moved through the last round of Being Me – and all the love that comes with that shift of perception. In this episode, they share where they were a year ago, how they feel now, and what got them there.

I’m so excited to share their incredible journey with you, as a part of the turn on month and how good it can get. Because if they could make that shift, so can you.

If you want what Shannon and Irene are having (in your own unique way), join my signature program BEING ME.

Listen to episode 118, From heaviness and despair to love - conversation with Irene and Shannon:

An excerpt from our conversation

Me: Where were you before Being Me?

Shannon: My body felt heavy. There was a sense of despair. A sense of urgency to “find myself”. 

What I realized in Being Me was that I didn’t have to find myself because I had been there all along. That I could tune into my body and my heart and listen. Just listen.

Irene: I was always anxious and vigilant. So much up in my head. For decades I’d repressed my feelings. I didn’t want to feel the pain and hurt and was constantly stressed out doing things.

I didn’t think I mattered. Something that had carried over from my childhood. I wanted to disappear in a group. I had a sense that my value came from what I did for other people.

Coming into Being Me was so life-changing. A lot of the things I knew in my head, I started to feel.

Me: What is it that feels so good now?

Irene: I feel so supported by life and everything around me. The love for myself permeates everything I do. I used to describe my life as a roller coaster but it became a river.

I don’t know if there’s a time anymore that I don’t have a smile on my face.
