Happy Mother’s Day & Happy 1st Birthday to Feed Your Wild! Today is such a special day and episode, thank you for being on this journey with me :)
Today we’re talking with Brenda Salgado, spiritual leader, healer, author and guide.
In this episode, Brenda gives us an introduction to curanderismo and indigenous prophecy about our current times and the shift in consciousness we are experiencing. Learn how mindfulness practice can help you cultivate more inner power, peace, dignity and grace as well as navigate challenges and difficulties with more clarity and courage in this current time of shift.
You’ll hear how Brenda began connecting to her ancestors in childhood, and how the visions she had as a young girl began to be realized as she stepped deeper into her work as a healer.
Brenda talks about how she navigated leaving a good stable job she loved to make healing work her primary offering, plus important advice for those who consider themselves sensitive and the dangers of being “too open.”
Check out Brenda’s free gifts below: An excerpt from her book Real World Mindfulness for Beginners: Navigate Daily Life One Practice at a Time as well as an audiofile of her reading one of the meditation practices.
