Today I welcome back my good friend, the “Queen of Saying It Out Loud,” Vasavi Kumar! 

She has relentlessly searched to find her own voice, access the freedom of her creative spirit, and help others along the way… out loud. When she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 19, she made it her life’s purpose to understand how her mind works, starting with making room to hear herself think. Her mission is to share everything—the good, bad, and ugly—in order to teach a more mindful, practical, and simple way of running every aspect of your life. 

In this episode, Vasavi teaches us the importance of “saying it out loud” – how to talk to yourself to build self-trust, heal from past traumas, and gain greater clarity about who you are and your calling. Vasavi shares practical tips for cultivating a discerning, gentle, and firm inner voice and unlocking the power of your inner child’s voice. She also shares some of her powerful exercises to help guide our self-talk. Don’t miss this powerful jam sesh!
