Dangers of Being A "Good Girl" + Deconstructing the False self with Dr. Emelia Sam

Ever feel like you're "on track, but off purpose"?

This was the heavy feeling that Dr. Emelia Sam experienced as she was set on course to achieving all the things that she was "supposed" to achieve. In this intimate conversation, Emelia reveals how playing the good girl was a disservice... and it took major deconstructing of who she thought she was to find her true self. We talk about the process of E.D.I.T.ing your story to recover alignment in your life, practical spirituality, the power of resonance + magnetism, and the need for compassionate competency within healthcare.

Within the first few years of professional life, Emelia realized something was amiss and started to recover the passions she left behind. For over a decade, she has maintained a blog, now known as 360SOUL, concerned with matters of mind and spirit.

Emelia is also gifting FYW listeners her Soul Infusion Kit, check it out below! 

Dr. Emelia Sam hails from Edmonton, Canada. After completing a Bachelor of Science degree at home she moved to Washington DC to attend dental school. Two years later, she realized she pretty much hated general dentistry but felt she was too far down that particular educational path to abandon it. She ended up being drawn towards the specialty of oral & maxillofacial surgery which required a four-year residency.

Emelia has published several books including I Haven't Found Myself but I'm Still Looking and The Book of Soulgasms. Her latest book, Compassionate Competency: Healing the Heart of Healthcare represents the intersection of her experience as a practitioner with her long-time interests in personal development and spirituality.
