We are feeling so much better! Still sick but at least we got some sleep last night🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 And today is podcast day! In this weeks episode of the podcast I cry - a lot. Had I ever recorded a podcast while sleep deprived and not cried? Nope. I’m used to bawling in front of half a million people weekly now🙈😂 Anywho. In today’s episode I talk about anger🔥 And how, if left unchecked, it can easily turn into resentment... Which separates us from our ability to bring loving kindness into the situation and in the end, causes us more harm than anything else. Have you heard that saying; holding onto resentment is like holding onto a piece of hot coal and expecting the other person to burn? Well it’s true! One of my intentions for this year is to work through resentment and get better at dealing with anger (I can hold a grudge foreverrrrrr). And I got the perfect chance to practice it this week! Tune in for some candid storytelling and pretty good advice🤗❤️ Link in bio or search From The Heart or Yoga Girl on iTunes (or wherever you get your podcasts!).

@hot_sauce_ross absolutely. I was so scared when I was writing this that I was shaking. I know she has dealt with so much of the mommy shaming and the comments of people feeling like they know better and I did not want to come off that way. As somebody that is dealing with this currently I just hope for people to be aware of the signs. If my comment could help one person then I feel like I had to say it. Postpartum hormones have the ability potentially affect ANYONES emotional, physical, and mental state. I always thought about postpartum depression as being sad all the time. I didn't recognize that anxiety, anger, rage, and intrusive thoughts about awful situations were all signs of a postpartum mood disorder. So I dealt with it for longer than I needed to without reaching out for help and talking about it. I was ashamed of my thoughts and I thought if I tucked them away they would go away. I also felt like because it wasn't a constant thing or because I was a happy person who's really in touch with my feelings that it couldn't possibly be something bigger than just something that every new mother goes through. One day I realized that my intrusive thoughts and my anger made me feel no longer like myself and that's when I decided to start talking about it. Cheers to all of us warrior woman!!!!

@hot_sauce_ross

@shakti.mom.placenta GIRL. Just wrote a similar comment and worried about speaking out of line, but as someone who suffered from postpartum anxiety what she was talking about struck a very familiar and difficult chord. Solidarity girl. Been there, done that, and still fighting the good fight some days.

@hot_sauce_ross

I'm listening to your latest podcast about Lea getting sick. How shitty. It does sound like you have some postpartum anxiety, (it's totally a thing) and is more prevelant than we realize but I'm not sure should be called "normal" You're not crazy, but you're right that this kind of anxiety becomes paralyzing. I participated in postpartum therapy for similar issues. I do think it's normal to have those thoughts, but when it becomes paralyzing or all encompassing it's too much. All of this unsolicited comment to say you are not alone and I think you are right to seek some normalcy in your thoughts. Practicing mindfulness is KEY. Keep talking. Keep feeling. I love all you share with the world. I'll be thinking of you and hoping you can quickly find peace in those moments when your brain makes you think the worst things. It is the cruelest part of motherhood in my opinion. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

@shakti.mom.placenta

Just listened to your podcast! As always it was so fantastic and relatable. I was really struck by the part where you're talking about your anxiety of envisioning the ways in which your sweet baby girl could die and how mothers are telling you this is normal. Of course worrying about your child is normal! Of course some of those thoughts are going to happen! But when it starts to permeate your being, when it starts to cause crippling fear...that is a very serious sign of postpartum anxiety disorder. Invasive thoughts is one of the number one symptoms of this. I know from first-hand experience so solidarity sister! It does not get talked about enough and I wish to bring light to that realm of the postpartum phase. Worry is normal. Crippling fear is not and you do not have to live your life that way! I love that you said you're going to start talking about it more because tucking it away does not make it go away. Talking about it can be one of the most therapeutic things for it. Ashwagandha root is also something that can really help. Of course this may not resonate with you and might not even be what is happening! But I wanted to shed some light on it for maybe some other individuals that are listening in case they feel like it has maybe crossed a line into something that they don't feel is normal and that maybe they need to reach out for some guidance with.

@chellyful

@euphorgiia really? So how old is the baby?

@hrvuono14

@yoga_girl your podcast talking about the paralyzing feat and playing horrible scenarios in your head - OMG I’ve never related to anything more in my life. Such a strange feeling to hear someone else talk about it! Thanks for sharing ❤️❤️

@chellyful

@euphorgiia I remember when you told me about it, it was like two years ago I think <3

@faperle

Thank you thank you for this podcast. Just last Friday i was walking home so frustrated with myself, as i found myself in too many situations of conflict this week, because i wasn't acting from my best self, because i gave into negative feelings and let them take over. And i was so down, because i somehow thought i had done so much growing i was way past this behavior, and i felt like i was back to square one. You reminded me that nobody is always perfect and that this is not an all or nothing situation or a path with a clear end. Its babysteps... sending much love

@viktoria.verhoeven

Hey Rachel love the podcasts and your feed. Just listening about the resentments and grudges. Totally get it and totally been there! Have you ever heard the saying “resentments are like taking poison and hoping the other person will die”? Doing a step 4 really helped me- ask your mum she’ll know 😉 much love from Sydney 😘

@animamundiherbals

The cutest!!!

@ongoing_odyssey

I am crying. My baby has been sick this week too. Half way through this podcast I got to sanitizing all of her toys. Sending happy healthy thoughts to little Luni and your friends baby. 😘 thank you!

@carlapark

Love the baby pictures but miss the real life posts that make people think.

@michelle_eastwood_

Thank you for being honest and real!

@tropicallylina

Precious ya two ✨

@ephemage

@cassidy4966 after blending the oats, she added some chia seeds, quinoa flakes, flaxseed meal (I think) and some special French formula. Feel like I’m missing something, but I can’t put my head around what it was, sorry :/ To prepare a serving, you can mix a couple of spoons of this powder with hot water. Additional to this you might wang to ad e.g. mashed banana, papaya, ... 🌞

@ledalinda_

Gorgeous!! All the best, beautiful ladies! 💫💕

@lizettemaritima

Wishing you good health 💕

@veda14

Does anyone know the name of the podcast?

@jessdoocy

Both smiles are worth a million bucks!!

@cassidy4966

Hey all. I heard Up until flax seed in the oatmeal recipe she has, but missed the rest. Can anyone share? Please :)

@nickyyhub

I get angry just as you do! Lol I’m glad I’m not the only one. Super passive aggressive and just saying mean shit because I’m so mad. You’re not alone lol

@njaduu

@allgitza ♥️transferring Margot’s thought to you :))

@margot_db_

@njaduu this young mother is pretty incredible and seems to have figured out parenting pretty well, maybe show this account to Olga (makes me wanna have kids as well ahaha)

@sofiamagdalenayogini

I recognize so much in this post, I have a child with an auto immune disease so getting sick is a sensitive subject to me. I often project and get angry with other people connected to the disease ... It's human but thank you so much for bringing up this subject. I felt so much love and gratefulness to my husband after listening !!

@schoenefeld.ami

@yoga_girl what brand is your Watch "Apple" ?

@shinnney_happppey_ppl

Your words. Holy shit. I needed to hear them

@loupche

This is my official ad to be Luna's babysitter at @orothschild and @patrickbekke wedding in France 🙈 I just listened to last week's podcast about you wanting to party baby-free during their wedding, so there you go, I'm here 🌟 I'm super experienced (babysitting every day to be able to eat organic and vegan in Paris), plus I already know how many scoops of oatmeal Lea Luna eats before going to bed 😝 Lots of love ❤️

@danielle_yogini

@yoga_girl happy that your little girl is feeling better! I just finished listening to your most recent podcast! I am a daughter or a super worried mother about everything all the time- she calls me probably 10 times a day (not including the million texts)😆 but in all seriousness her worrying about everything has dwindled our relationship because I couldn’t tell her about anything in case she goes from 0 to 100. First time sickness is totally understandable that you are worried but don’t let it carry on to other areas when she grows older. There is a little resentment I hold for not having a relationship that is open with my mother. It will be better for your mind and keep you happy and positive, instead of living in a place of worry and negativity. This podcast resonated with me the most thus far. Thank you for letting me listen to my mother’s side 😊

@dancingthroughthelife

Thank you for this weeks podcast! I can definitely relate with everything you are saying about the resentment, about finding the soft spot in others to push when I'm in a shitiest state of being, and the loss of my humanity, compassion and kindness when things are not going well. It did made me feel a lot more human, that whole thing of not being the only person in the world that goes through these moments of battling between accountabilty, doing my best, being human, letting things out, being compassionate and experiencing what is happening inside of the head, body and heart.
