Do you ever try to push away or distract yourself from your uncomfortable thoughts and emotions? When you experience the world more intensely than others, it is tempting to try to shut down the negative. But to fully integrate we must acknowledge the whole, both the dark and the light. 

With the current trend in spirituality to focus entirely on love and light, it encourages us to keep our thoughts positive with the idea that what we think about is what manifests in our life. But if we don't face our shadow side, it will always be lurking in the background waiting to come out when something brings up our stuff.

In this episode, Aurora shares:

  • What exactly is spiritual bypassing? 
  • Why it is dangerous to ignore the dark side. 
  • How acknowledging that our feelings are temporary can help us move through dark feelings without shoving them aside.

It’s easy to agree that everyone is different, but does anyone know what it’s like to be your brand of different? Have you ever sat down to explain it to someone before, and then been at a loss for words? Language and self-expression have such a huge influence on one another, so it is no surprise that Intensity leaves its own unique signature on how we express ourselves too! If your intensity has ever made you feel different, alone, or misunderstood, then today’s episode will speak right to your heart.

Today, we are excited to have with us Anamaria Bambaren Call, the Founder of the Gifted Culture Project. Anamaria is a Linguist who knows what it is like to be Gifted, different, and unable to express it. Anamaria is a Third Culture Kid, whose grew up feeling different, but not really knowing why. Later, Anamaria was identified as Gifted, and that began a series of experiences that led her to her study of Linguistics. Anamaria believes that everyone has a story to tell, and those stories make us stronger, more colorful and more fully known. She uses her fire to help others tell their stories and embrace their difference. There is a source of creativity and power that comes from your own unique Intensity. Anamaria expresses that truth using her beautiful words, and you will walk away inspired today.

Also in this episode:

  • Growing up as a Third Culture Kid gave Anamaria a unique perspective on what it means to be different.
  • How Sociolinguistics helped Anamaria make sense of her own formative experiences and express them.
  • Cultural factors influenced how Anamaria expressed her Giftedness.
  • We share how Gifted identification was difficult because of Language Acquisition.
  • Why self-care became an important influence in embracing intensity.
  • Inter-cultural work is important and growing every day.
  • Connecting with your kids through shared intensity.
  • Anamaria shares how her habits are always changing to meet her personal needs.

Have you ever stopped to marvel at someone’s wondrous, spiritual journey? Are you pining for a deeper spiritual or emotional connection to the world and others, but struggle to begin? You might be kindred spirits with many Intense Women who have struggled to fully express their more mystic side. The world is so wide, and sometimes it takes a little leap of faith, and maybe a ticket across the ocean, to begin to see all that the world has to offer!

Our guest today is Sarah “Sadie” McCarthy-Sitthiket, a fellow Portlander who has always been reaching for a deep connection. Her views on self-expression radically changed on a visit to Thailand. Seeing that another culture allowed her to unlock her hidden gifts, she decided to move to Thailand and take root in her own spiritualism. Now she is running the show at the Chaing Mai Community House in Thailand, where she leads people to open their heart through fine arts, Tarot readings, and her own poetic “Tarotetry.” Later this month, Sarah will be joining us at Quinn Mountain to share her knowledge of Tarot and encourage us to open our hearts and be a little curious. Sarah’s journey is one that you do not want to miss out on!          

More to explore in this episode:

  • How a love of people led Sarah to embrace other cultures.
  • Experience Sarah’s journey to Thailand.
  • Our families, no matter how supportive, can still deeply impact our spiritual journey.
  • Sacrificing your ego in order to heal it.
  • Having to learn to operate in different cultural codes is a difficult, but worthwhile discipline.
  • Learning from difficult times to sympathize with others.
  • Intensity is like riding a surfboard!
  • Sarah has learned to listen, and that has helped her transform other people’s inner power.
  • All the details you need about our Tarot Workshop!

Have you ever tried to force a wave? How'd that work out for you? When we are faced with intense emotions or uncertainty, it is tempting to push towards or against things, when it might be more effective to just ride the wave.

In this week's episode, Aurora shares:

  • About times she has faced the urge to force things.
  • What inspired her to "surf the waves."
  • Some of the fun things she has coming up at Quinn Mountain Retreat.
