“There’s a Tap for That!” with Pro Witch Brad Yates

March 25, 2020

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and you bet that includes non-threatening "your Dad's best friend" types like Brad Yates! We are so glad divine timing allowed us to record with Brad before locking down for COVID-19. Brad has helped millions of people through his hundreds of free online EPT (Emotional Freedom Technique) videos. Learn how to take a daily energy-shower, the brain science behind political manipulation, and how everything is energy. Listen, tap along, enjoy, and then utilize Brad's library of tapping vids for any ailment or negative cognition. Whatever it is, there's a tap for that! In closing, Leah and Rachel give Brad (@tapwithbrad) a Goddess Oracle card reading.

“Lifelong Learning” with Sky Cowans

March 18, 2020

With pandemonium spreading over the COVID-19 pandemic, it feels divine to release this episode all about our own innate healing power: mindset. Sky Cowans originally featured us in her Modern Witchcraft video (link below), and now it was our turn to ask the questions. As someone whose job it is to learn and try and better her life, Sky did not disappoint in her answers on the healing power of the mind, experimental science, and the beauty of being a lifelong learner. We explore the topics of hypnosis, overcoming eating disorders, and our gateway drug to all things wellness - yoga! From crazy healing stories to kooky scam compassion, there's something for everyone in this ep. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Sky (@skycowans) a Goddess Oracle card reading.

“Focus Pocus” with Ashley Rickards

March 11, 2020

It's no surprise that Ashley Rickards (MTV's Awkward), an actor with such large range, could talk deeply with us witches. Ashley is a crystal-slinger with a history of horse therapy and a disdain for things that make humans feel separate from one another. We talk about healing in hiding, Mercury Retrograde, how SEXY consent is, and the gifts we can mine out of T/trauma. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Ashley (@ashleyrickards) a Goddess Oracle Card reading. And for the record, she'd like someone to throw her a surprise birthday party.
