How often do you give yourself permission in your life? On the Practical Magic podcast as part of the Reset & Refocus sessions today I am in conversation with the wonderful Susie Sourwine as we talk about the subject of permission, and how we can live our lives from a place of doing just that.

On the show we talk about:

  • How permission is linked to decision making around what it is that we truly want in our lives.
  • Being conscious about what we choose to measure our lives against, and not just about what the factory settings
  • Obligations i.e. what you think you have to do vs. choice i.e. what you want / enjoy doing
  • How to claim your own personal sovereignty around what you want and how to claim taking action around that
  • The key points of permission around the three points of Desire, Decide and Do
  • Why Permission is being in the present and an essential  self care practice
  • Permission is meeting yourself where you’re at
  • Susie’s genius and simple tips for granting permission in our lives.

Susie’s self care tips:

  • Paying attention to how to do things without hurting ourselves
  • Connecting in with nature to connect into the nature of ourselves
  • Feeding ourselves for powering up
