Is it your instinct or your intuition talking? How to listen and use it. – Integrally Alive Podcast

The more embodied you are, the closer your are to your intuition. Claire Wild

Do you ever have gut feelings, sometime? Or a tiny voice in your head, or butterflies in the tummy, or…. Whatever form it takes: How do you know it’s instinct or intuition?How do you know when it is a good idea to follow it? On instinct, intuition, gut feeling, embodiment, and broccoli latte… A lot of my coaching is towards living more intuitively. Often in my coaching sessions, and almost always if the session is around relationship to food, a statement shows up:”Oh well if I listen to my intuition I would be eating ice cream all the time.” (Replace … Read more

Meditation is not a wellness tool. But you need it more than ever! – Integrally Alive Podcast

_meditation_is_not_a_wellness_tool_claire_wild-podcast

I love meditating because it trains me to be more present.What about you? Why do you meditate? On meditation, being present, crazy thoughts, wellness, and enlightenment… In a conversation describing his morning routine, a guy told me: “I meditate every day. For ten minutes. Then I feel like moving, so I get up.” But for me this is exactly when the meditation begins! When we feel itchy, want to move, get flabbergasted by the sheer number of thoughts that rush into our head all of a sudden! The Western world took meditation and transformed it into a tool for wellness. … Read more

48_integrally_alive_podcast_2020_11_11_quote_why_you_need_a_daily_practice_claire_wild

What is your practice? Do you have a yoga practice? A meditation practice? A mindfulness practice? …What else do you practice?How does that change your days? why is it important to you? On stress, mindfulness, resilience, and daily practices… In a call with friends earlier this week, we were doing a round of check in: “How are you doing?”I had (like many of us these days), quite a challenging week, with bad news every day. So I joked saying that I would be happy with just a day without bad news. But then, I had to be honest: Even with … Read more

Switch off thinking of the worst scenarios and rest your nervous system – Integrally Alive Podcast

integrally_alive_podcast_2020_03_16_stop_thinking_of_the_worst_scenarios_and_rest_your_nervous_system_claire_wild

“I have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.” Could you be the author of this quote? I certainly could, but you probably recognized Mark Twain. This episode came from a question a while ago (before the actual Coronavirus situation) of one of my clients on the tendency we often have to think about the worst case scenarios. What can we do about it? I have a two-fold answer today: addressing it from the mind, and from the body. These last days, shopping has turned into an interesting experience. Quite everything on my list, nothing fancy, … Read more

integrally_alive_podcast_2020_02_03_define_your_happiness_with_flexibility_claire_wild

Last week we talked about setting a direction for ourselves in a permaculture way. So now you know where you are going… How will you know you have succeeded? HOW ELSE? Today is all about flexibility to maximize your happiness and success. Recently I was coaching a round of a Mindvalley quest on the human diet and our relationship to food: WildFit. Often participants have a weight-loss goal in joining this program. Sometimes a very specific number of kilos. During the program, invariably, other things happen as well. Their skin and hair get better, they feel less tired, some health … Read more

Can words change your life? – Integrally Alive Podcast

34_integrally_alive_podcast_2019_11_19_can_words_change_your_life_claire_wild

This summer I was at a speaking event, and heard the story of a woman, who shared how she overcame depression and wanting to kill herself. A very brave thing to do, especially on stage; and so needed, too, because the stigma on these topics is literally killing people, who otherwise would speak up and ask for help. So when she sat back, right next to me, I turned to her and thank her for her courage, expressing that I know how difficult it can be to talk about suicide. She looked at me with surprise, and answered that she … Read more

Why you need to do what makes you come alive – Integrally Alive Podcast

31_integrally_alive_podcast_2019_10_29_Why_you_need_to_do_what_makes_you_come_alive_claire_wild

How often do you do what makes you come alive? I like to try new things. But some things are so good that I like to repeat them again and again. Like my favorite questions:”What makes you feel alive?” What makes you feel alive? If you’re familiar with the podcast, you will recognize this question: I love it so much, that I used to end every interview of season one with it. And it was beautiful to hear the answers, always different, always inspiring (so much so that I dedicated the last episode of the season to this question alone). … Read more

What makes you feel Alive?, with Claire Wild – Integrally Alive Podcast

27_integrally_alive_podcast_what_makes_you_feel_alive_claire_wild

This has been the ritual ending question of the podcast for this last year. And wow, it has been inspiring, touching in many ways, and so diverse! So for the last episode of this season of the podcast, I decided to gather all the answers (Unfortunately some I couldn’t put in, due to a too big discrepancy in the quality of the sound). From great sex, to cooking, traveling, enjoying every moment, connecting with others, living the question… There is a lot of wise and even poetic inspiration in this special episode; one to come back to whenever we struggle … Read more

Out of the whirlpool, with Sue Martin – Integrally Alive Podcast

26_integrally alive podcast_2019_05_16_out_of_the_whirlpool_with_sue_martin

If I told you I know a woman who almost killed herself intentionally and thirty years later is one of the funniest and joyful person I know… Would you believe me? This episode might be one of the most “serious” of this season, by the subject. It is also one of those we laughed the most. And i couldn’t be happier about that; because only when it will become easier to talk about these “serious” and tough topics, will it also become easier to tackle these issues. So get ready for an incredible story, with an incredible woman! “I didn’t … Read more

25_integrally_alive_podcast_2019-05-01_turning_crises_into_success_with_charly_jaffe

Last episode Charly shared how eventually her biggest challenges became her greatest teachers. And if you missed it, you probably want to go and listen to it before jumping on that one. You use storytelling all the time, whether you are aware of it or not. So how can you use it for healing? we talk about it a lot in this episode… Could owning our story, and sharing it to the world (or at least not be afraid anymore to share it), be a key for healing, and even peace on earth? You already know I’m a strong advocate … Read more
