I felt called to record a full-length tarot reading for all the black sheep on Mother’s Day.
This holiday can definitely be triggering and we’re swept under the rug. This is a time of year where we get told that our opinions are invalid and that we should ‘get over the past’ or ‘overcome our feelings’ in order to make our families (or even outsiders) happy. But this is a safe space for black sheep and there’s no invalidating happening here. I hope you remember how special and loved you are. I hope you know how strong you have had to be. And I hope this inspires you to celebrate yourself.
This week we’re talking about the Black Sheep Experience! I covered real psychological and sociological studies that have been done on those who identify as the black sheep of the family and the role that plays in our lives as teens and adults.
I also discussed how your parents’ actions contribute to distrust of others in your adult life,
the impact that being a black sheep has on your mental health,
why we as black sheep tend to feel unloved and unworthy,
how we can embrace our journies as the black sheep and find joy and self-love through our experiences!
We questioned what we learned about relationships growing up, whether brown womxn are taught to sacrifice themselves for love, and if love is a priority in South-Asian culture.
We also talked about our journies with self-trust, how we learned to trust our intuition even when it goes against the grain in South-Asian culture, and how to balance our sense of self-trust while dating and in relationships.
Developing Self-Trust & Following A Non-Traditional Path As A South-Asian Woman w/ Kirti P @kirtiiip
This week I’m joined by Kirti, @kirtiiip, a former client and student in Not Your Beti, my online course on self-trust for South-Asian women and femmes!
Kirti was living the American Dream – working in the finance sector with a secure job in New York City. This year she followed her intuition, left the world of security behind, and moved home to India to pursue a career as a brain-based life coach!
I’m so excited for you to hear Kirti’s story. We chatted about:
shame and judgment around being a life coach
how life coaching completely changed both of our lives
shedding the “nice girl” identity so many South-Asian womxn are forced to uphold
how it felt going through a spiritual awakening and meeting our spirit guides
