Wow. What an episode this was to produce. So much emotion comes up for me when I walk this path with you guys, hearing your stories and witnessing your growth. Many, many of you have written and Speakpiped to me asking for a "Where are they now?" themed episode on my Real Time Heals... and I have answered. Brooke came to me after 5 pelvic and thora…
 
Hello my podcast family! Today on the pod we are focusing on things to celebrate. This is hard work, but it yields great rewards. We have received some beautiful success stories on Speakpipe, and today I'm highlighting one that really lit us up. Kathryn had migraines so badly, she had only ONE OR TWO DAYS A MONTH without searing pain. She tried eve…
 
Welcome to the wild and wacky fall, where anything goes. This is a travel week, so I was thinking of bringing on a "best of" RTH, which many of you have requested on Speakpipe, but the universe had other plans. I got walloped this week by a bout of TMS I haven't felt in many years, and true to my nature, I decided to bring it onto the pod to share …
 
The summer may be coming to an end, but don't fret - we are only getting started! So much exciting stuff is ahead of us, and in the meantime I wanted to take an episode and look back at all we've experienced together these last few months. The summer was packed with rich content, and myriad themes that will resonate through all the work we do toget…
 
This week we have a special guest interviewer! Lisa Schlosberg, LMSW has been working with me for the last 5 years, and is one of my dream team of instructors who travels with me to teach this work and carry this message. Lisa also has her own specialty when it comes to MindBody work: disordered eating, body image struggles, weight issues, and rela…
 
As we round out the Summer Series, it seems fitting to tackle this vast topic which contributes to so much TMS - the fact that everything in life comes to an end one way or another. The fascinating thing about mortality, is that it's not just about one's lifespan. It's also about all of our little moments, and the fleeting nature of human existence…
 
Sitting backstage on my lunch break as we round out this incredible week, I find myself without a microphone or much privacy, but I wanted to come and briefly inspire you as I reflect on some stories from the week. Every summer OMEGA stuns me with the depth of transformation that I witness. This year is no exception. Join me for a short but sweet p…
 
Our parents represent our first, most powerful, and most primary relationship in life. We define ourselves by the ways in which we fit into their needs and definitions. As we get older and more awake, sometimes it is hard to continue to grow on our own without addressing the impact and fallout of these primary relationships. And also, of course, th…
 
The word "trigger" has become so ubiquitous in our society, it has lost its truest definition: a reaction to a current day stressor that reminds us so much of past trauma, we actually relive it. This is a slippery slope for maintaining loving relationships and feeling safe in the world. Triggers can be internal (sensations in our bodies) or externa…
 
So many of you are speaking to me about the same thing - you just don't know it. It might look like it appears as resistance to doing the work, fear of not doing the work, or shame about the places you are falling short, but the genesis is the same: That pesky voice in our heads that is informed by old ideas and past trauma. The voice tells us, "Yo…
 
Today on the podcast we do another "knowledge drop" focused on a specific topic that you guys have been discussing - How do we get underneath the big feelings that feel dangerous to the Nervous System in order to transform our lives? There are heavy hitting emotions that are deemed by our primitive brains as unsafe, like Rage, Despair, Shame, and T…
 
Hello my loves! Today on the podcast we are going to talk about the 'all too common' Symptom Imperative. Are you exchanging one pain for another? Does your migraine resolve, only to be replaced by pelvic pain? Does JournalSpeak alleviate one symptom only to have anxiety or fear fill the vacuum? You're not alone. Learn all about the Symptom Imperati…
 
This is a travel week for me, so today is a less formal "knowledge drop" about something that has been on my mind, heart, and body. As I deal with the grief of saying goodbye to Blu, I am also experiencing what are ubiquitously labeled as symptoms of Long Covid. It's fascinating for me, as a mindbody practitioner, to experience "having" something, …
 
OMG Thank You for sharing your stories, questions, and struggles with me. They are all being heard and noted, and you are making such a difference in helping me to plan for the future of this podcast. Please KEEP THEM COMING! Today on Episode 2 of the Summer Series, we are taking on the concept of belief, trusting yourself, "Knowing" from the seat …
 
Welcome to Episode 1 of our Summer Series! I'm so excited to be together. Today, we are going to set the mindset for our summer. As you often hear me quote William Shakespeare, "Expectation is the root of all heartache." Today, we discuss all the ways in which high (and low) expectations can keep us stuck and suffering, and the mindset of awareness…
 
This 2 month hiatus has allowed me some perspective. To look within, and begin to know what is next for us. The pandemic has required that we slow down and pause in ways we never could have expected. Now, we find ourselves at a crossroads - how do we learn to come alive again? How do we combine resolving chronic pain and anxiety (removing the negat…
 
When you don't know how you feel about something, or what to do, the best path forward is to get quiet and touch into your energy and your intuition. Today is one of those days for me. I have a felt sense of what is coming for me, for you, for us. And at this moment I need to make space for it to manifest. Today on the pod we will be discussing wha…
 
Hello my loves! Omg so busy these days, and was unable to grab the time to do a totally original podcast, so today is an intro from me and a repeat of my podcast on burnout from last fall. I am not sure if I will need to do another hiatus to prepare for all the exciting things coming next in our work together - TBA (so please don't mistake this for…
 
I love doing Real Time Heals - they allow me to empty my mind and hone in on exactly what someone needs. Today was no exception! The only thing I will say here, is that Camille is so tapped in, smart, and willing about this process that she sounds more like a success story than a RTH. Having said this, we get down to it. And come up with a rich con…
 
As we continue to live in a world fraught with suffering, I am receiving many messages seeking guidance on how to move through this time with grace. We are rounding out two years of a global pandemic, and the war In Ukraine is a constant reminder of the fragility of the things we take for granted. Today I do my best to help soothe your heart and mi…
 
There are some things that are more difficult to discuss than others - sensitive, vulnerable topics that don't get enough air as a result of the bravery it takes to discuss them. PGAD (Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder) is certainly one of them. Alongside myriad other pelvic conditions, PGAD is one I have been hearing about privately from people …
 
I've aways loved the healing message of the Buddhist principle of the second arrow. The first arrow is unavoidable - our natural reaction to life. The second arrow is the way human beings perpetuate our own suffering - judgement of the first arrow, or expectations attached to it. Today we explore both! Join us, and perhaps find some peace around th…
 
Cecilia grew up in a big and loving family. The only issue, though, was that the family's story was marked with striking trauma. Little Cecilia, in the wake of the turbulent events, intuitively knew that the best thing she could do for her struggling parents was to stay "quiet and convenient". As a grown woman, events unfolded that left Cecelia in …
 
Wow - wasn't entirely sure where this podcast was going to go when I sat down at the mic to record it, but it went deep. People pleasing begins as early as birth, when we sense that we need to exude a certain kind of energy to match our human tribe. As we get more sophisticated, so does the people pleasing game, and as we grow it can require us to …
 
As the world continues to grapple with the effects and aftereffects of Covid, I am so grateful for the brave and bold recovery stories I continue to witness. Jessica's is one of them. Little did I know when I began this work and continued for years to walk through it with people, that it would become central to heal a world weary and stricken by a …
 
Well, I imagine the title of this episode tells you where we're going with this! lol. Today we are going to discuss how to find your calm center in the midst of this chaotic life, and discover new ways to regulate your Nervous System and touch into peace. This is very challenging, now more than ever, but that's what makes it so important. Join me f…
 
Today is a special treat. Eddy Lindenstein of The Mind and Fitness Podcast reached out to ask me to appear on his show and discuss the fallout of 2 years of living in this time of Covid, and all its related circumstances. I thought it would be a great convo, so we are publishing it this week on both of our platforms! Eddy is interviewing me in this…
 
I get the question a lot: "How do I explain to people what the heck we are doing here to heal? It feels like I am preaching/begging them to believe me, and it interrupts my healing process and gets me angry, annoyed and anxious!" Today we broach this subject - an important one - through the lens of compassion and calm, confident communication. I ha…
 
Betsy is a prime example of someone who could have gotten lost in the medical model of unnecessary surgery and medication with her diagnosis of Spondylolisthesis (like me!) We are similar in that we rejected those options, but were still in despair. Luckily for both of us, we discovered mindbody medicine. Betsy's a beautiful story of pain and heali…
 
My greatest fear is that people will misinterpret my work as they did Dr. Sarno's, and believe I am suggesting that the pain is in their heads, they are being hysterical, making it up, creating it, too dramatic, too sensitive, etc. This is the exact opposite of what I am saying, and today I thought I would dedicate the pod to making that clear, aga…
 
What a wonderful REAL TIME HEAL. Shannon is so lovely and well spoken, and bravely takes us through her journey thus far - starting at a young age with panic attacks, anxiety and phobias, and morphing into an eating disorder and more as she grew older. She also had the added stress of having to come out to her parents, and come to terms with the en…
 
Whenever a post blows up on Instagram and my community says, "OMG I NEVER REALIZED THAT BEFORE!" I know it deserves a podcast ep. Today on the pod we discuss the bizarre (but so real) trauma response of not being able to enjoy the moment - even when the moment is good! This is a very real phenomena that I have experienced many times. Through the wo…
 
Heather has lived through a lot. She grew up in a family struggling with addiction, and found herself gaslit and confused at every turn. As she grew older, this trauma she suffered began to express itself through physical pain syndromes, namely chronic migraines (19 a month!) and shoulder pain - among other medical anomalies. Heather was in literal…
 
The community has called out, and I am listening! People want to hear more about TMS, the origins of this acronym, why it matters, and who the heck is Dr. Sarno. They also want to understand more precisely why "doing the [emotional] work" has anything to do with alleviating chronic issues. You asked, and I am answering! This episode may be a review…
 
Kurt was not a stranger to Dr. Sarno's work. He had used it successfully to eliminate back pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, and male pelvic issues. Yet, when he got a bad case of Long Covid, he wasn't aware that the same brain science was at work... until he heard my podcast with Like (episode 122). Her Long Haul Recovery story was so impactful t…
 
Happy Podcast Day, Day After Thanksgiving, And Black Friday! And no matter what you feel about any of those things, I send you love. Today on the pod we are discussing the lifelong effects of being raised in an angry, rageful, chaotic environment, or however this translates to your experience (don't worry - we make room for everyone.) You have far …
 
Dr. Hillary McBride has been talking embodiment for years, from both her experience overcoming an eating disorder and her clinical practice, and then her recovery from two major car accidents. The moment I heard about her work, I was awakened to something that I had forgotten was so important - the way we inhabit our bodies. I speak about the mind/…
 
Fear and phobias can punctuate our lives with reactions, blockages, and continued trauma. Today on the pod I discuss one of my own - my most terrifying - the fear of vomit and vomiting. Trigger warning - we will be discussing this issue, but not gratuitously. I won't be recounting gross details more than necessary. But if you don't feel comfortable…
 
WELCOME BACK TO YOU, ME, ALL OF US! Yay, happy podcast day. I'm rejuvenated from my weeks off and ready to bring you more inspiring and helpful info, stories, and human connection. Today we have an incredible follow up story from a RTH that I did about a year ago with Angela. She has been on quite the ride, and has gone through many stages of heali…
 
Hello friends! As I get ready to bring the pod back, I am taking this opportunity to debut my friend and colleague Lisa Schlosberg's very brand new baby. Lisa has been inspiring people for years with her own work, and in the beautiful ways in which she carries the message of mine. I hope you enjoy this interview we did together! Nicole Sachs, LCSW …
 
Wouldn't you know it! The moment I try to take a break from this podcast, we hit a milestone I can't ignore: TWO MILLION DOWNLOADS! So, I thought a great way to mark this occasion would be to reprise one the most effective episodes in explaining what we're doing here: the foundation of JournalSpeak and why it can help you. So, in that effort, I am …
 
We all define burnout in our own ways. What I mean by this is that only you can know when you're really on the edge of losing your joy and energy for life. I have felt this edge lately. For this reason, I am deciding - finally - to practice a bit of self-care around my content creation. It has been nearly 3 years, and I have never missed a week of …
 
Jacqueline was always a "good girl" - putting pressure on herself to get straight A's, be thin and pretty, and always be the light for other people. When her debilitating back pain began in her 20's, she had no idea that those behaviors could possibility have anything to do with it. After two surgeries, and pain that kept moving around, Jacqueline …
 
We all do it, and most of it is unconscious. We "seek" out relationships - friendships and love relationships - that mirror unresolved ones from childhood. Sometimes people treat us with neglect, abuse, shaming, gaslighting, judgement. Sometimes they are overidentified with us, enmeshed, codependent. Whatever we are used to (but also were hurt by) …
 
My interview with Mariel started out as a success story - because she is! Mariel was so debilitated with pain that she was actively contemplating ending her life, and now she is amazing with 80% of her severe pain gone. But as we continued with the conversation, it became clear that a RTH was in store, in order to give Mariel all the tools she need…
 
We all feel so overwhelmed by the needs of others, and the way it feels to withstand their struggles - whether it be our children, or other significant people in our lives. But what if our suffering over their suffering is really about us, and the ways in which we've been hurt or traumatized? Today on the pod we discuss how our deepest struggles ca…
 
Wow - Shelly had so many diagnoses I had to pick just a few to put on the title of this episode. She was also dealing with many heavy life stressors. In the end, Shelly is grateful for the pain, as she was brought to this work and it saved her life. Shelly's journey is so inspirational, and she brings great advice to anyone moving through this proc…
 
It is normal and natural to want help, support, love, kindness, and ease. The trouble arises when we want to be "rescued", often subconsciously, from the struggles of life. This can be a response to the trauma of not getting our needs met as children. Sometimes this is deliberate, and sometimes it is just because parents and caregivers have nothing…
 
Rachelle suffered immensely with the symptoms of dizziness and tinnitus. I hear from many people around the world about their struggles with these life-stopping symptoms, and Rachelle was no different. Her journey was a scary, painful, and frustrating one, but once she found this work it all turned around. Join us for an uplifting and insightful co…
 
Today is a bit of a mini-sode. I am about to leave for OMEGA and I didn't want to leave you without a pod this week. It's little, but it's mighty. Listen with your whole heart. The only thing that matters is: How do you feel today? XOXOXO all my love, n. GET 50% OFF ONE YEAR OF THE CURABLE APP: go to www.getcurable.com/nicole My new course FREEDOM …
