My guest today has such an interesting background. She’s had the pleasure of working with individuals in healthcare over the last 18 years. Seniors in nursing homes, small children — she says she’s had the privilege of being able to witness life from the very beginning to the very end. She believes that when adequate resources are available to all of us the biggest determinant of health becomes our relationship to ourselves.

 

Destiny Spurrell is trained as a naturopathic doctor, she is a mother of three (aka the CEO of family orchestration), and the co-founder of Soul Spark Sisterhood.

 

We had a really interesting conversation today because we explore the connection between purpose and health outcomes, the idea of personal leadership, and what we can do as individuals — to not only optimize our own health — but to contribute to the world in a really big way. We got super practical around how to set boundaries in our lives, the elements that go into the creation of a perfect day, how to balance family and career, and how to connect to ourselves and a strong community of women.

Today’s guest is a badass for sure — she opens up the interview with, “Listen, I started out wanting to change the world,” when I asked her what her vision for her life was. These are the kind of women I resonate with very quickly!

 

Annette Dubreuil was my guest today and what we really dived deep into is this concept called ‘focusing.’ Focusing is a tool to enable us to understand and interpret the feelings we have in our body as they relate to our current mindset or psychology. Focusing is an incredibly interesting and useful tool that can enable all of us to gather more information to make decisions with respect to our lives. It is the perfect complement for an entrepreneur when they’re looking for insight into the types of decisions that they need to make in their lives.

 

This is what started her career as an environmentalist and she very quickly learned that it wasn’t necessarily the ideas but the systems, the businesses, the organizations, the stakeholders, and the environmental movement that required a new framework in order to be effective in a rapidly changing world. These pressures and understandings caused her to change her career and that is how she discovered ‘focusing.’

 

Annette is a consummate professional and was an absolutely fascinating guest to have on today’s podcast.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:27] All about this week’s badass guest, Annette Dubreuil.

[10:55] How do we get into our body, opposed to our head? As a focusing newbie, how long does it take?

[13:04] What are the common ways our body speaks to us that we’ve been blocking off or ignoring?

[15:18] How do focusing and other naturopathic remedies (such as food, medicine, or strategic movement) work together?

[17:38] What does it actually mean to be in your body instead of your head? And how to get ready to focus.
