EPISODE 25: THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR TIME



**New WEBSITE!: www.monicaburgat.com**

Time is our most valuable asset, yet most of us waste a lot of it. It’s something that we can spend, but we never get back. How are you investing your time? Is it helping or hindering your goals? Is your time investments matching up with what you want out of life?

Morbid or not, we’re gonna die. And when we do, how are you going to feel about how you spent your time? Let’s WAKE UP. Quit zoning out on social media and netflix, and become intentional about our time. Use your time to fuel your mind, body, and spirit, not hinder it. We are what we spend time consuming. We are who we spend time WITH. We are what we spend time doing.

EPISODE 24- WHY I STARTED ACCEPTING MALE CLIENTS + WHAT I’VE LEARNED ABOUT MYSELF



**New WEBSITE!: www.monicaburgat.com**

From the conception of my business, I have been asked multiple times over the years if I accept male clients and I’ve always had the same answer – a hard and definite “No, never”.
But over the years I have began to reevaluate my thinking after being asked so many times; and then recently I was asked if my reasoning was coming from a valid place- or if it’s coming from my own past experiences and limiting beliefs about working with men.

This was a moment where I had to sit myself down and really evaluate if I was allowing these thoughts to continue to hold me back in my life (and business).
In this episode I talk about how to constantly be having mental check-ins with yourself and your belief systems, and if they are still coming from a good place, or if it’s time to evolve.

Men: Feel free to contact me about coaching!

EPISODE 23: WHY HAVING A GROUP OF FEMALE FRIENDS IS IMPORTANT



Y’ALL. This got nuts. It started out with me examining the hurt and betrayal that I’ve been through with women in the last 2 years, and it lead me to a conclusion (that then lead to more): The people who I was hurt by all had one thing in common – they didn’t have a GOOD group of female friendships. (Two out of these three have told me this from their own mouths).

It got me thinking a lot the last few weeks about how female friendships play a crucial role in our lives, and why they are so important.

And then, we talked about the why women speaking badly about one another…. and I go off on a rant.
Listen in to hear what I think and how it (once again) is super important that we own up to our shit, take personal responsibility, and DO BETTER.

EPISODE 22: HOW I CHANGED MY MINDSET ABOUT MY HEALTH



NEW YEAR, NEW ME.

Well, not quite y’all. You’re still the same you. But I know with New Years resolutions comes lots of pressure to “get in shape”, and “lose weight”, but is that really how it’s supposed to be? Take the DIET out of eating, and figure out what your body really needs!

From bed ridden to abundant energy, what happened to snap me out of the mindset of needing to be a certain weight/size, and how I now view what I put in my mouth as a determination of wellness – or illness!

Is what you’re doing serving your body to help keep it healthy and well? Or is it on the fast track to illness, disease, and YUCK? When you start viewing your habits as health living and not just a number on a scale or your pant size, it takes on a whole new meaning- and is more motivating.  Get out of that mindset of “dieting” for aesthetics, and do it for HEALTH.

EPISODE 21: TAKE IT FROM ME – NO DIMMING YOUR LIGHT AND PLAYING IT SMALL IN 2020



Mentioned in this Episode:
– Ashley Anne IG @ashleyannecreates
– Jenny Harris IG @coffeetalkandconcealerwalk
– Tiffany Bettis FB @Blissful Abundance
– Nicole Hatten IG @mrshatten

I’ve realized I played it SUPER small and dimmed my light in 2019. How I realized this, what I did about it, and my encouragement to you.

Mindset work is a constant journey, and you have to stay on top of it! I let myself slip into self doubt – not only in my personal life but in my business. I backed myself into a corner. Until I had several people reach out to me in the span of a month and restore my faith in my calling and what I KNEW I was meant to do. I was being borderline disrespectful to the people I am called to help by not being ME.

Don’t do what I did. Don’t wait around for someone to give your permission or to validate you. Get off your ass and go DO IT.

EPISODE 20: IS IT TOXIC? OR ARE YOU JUST INCONVENIENCED?



I’ve been hearing a lot of hubalub this Holiday season about it being “draining” being around family – but what happened to compassion? Some of my best memories with my Gigi were “draining”, but I did it anyway because guess what – lots of stuff in life is draining and inconvenient. (I don’t know about you, but those darn kids can be exhausting -lol). And guess what? Those are some of my GREATEST memories.
Sometimes, we just have to do it anyway. One, because sometimes that’s just flat out being part of an adult… and two – because what are we REALLY bargaining for when we don’t do the hard stuff?

My other theory is this: we have gotten so into the buzz words lately of “self-care” and “aligned” and “the right energy”, that we have almost created a sense of entitlement. We choose to bury our head in the sand, or just simply not show up so we don’t have to “deal” with people or things. But we come across uncomfortable situations every single day, and it’s what builds character- and often times create greatness.

There ARE toxic situations where we are totally allowed to set boundaries and distance ourselves. But this episode might help you determine: Is it really so horribly draining that it’s actually “toxic”, or do we need to choose compassion in this instance? Better yet, how can YOU be the light to some difficult or hurting family members this season?

Don’t miss out on precious people, places, and things this Holiday season if you don’t have to.

EPISODE 18: DON’T BLEED ON PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T CUT YOU – THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALING



Your story matters, and it can be a VASTLY different story if we choose not to heal ourselves.

How other people behave and what they have done to us, are not our responsibility – but how we respond and how we heal IS.
You have the power to literally transform the lives around you by taking care of yourself and healing properly – and for some people it’s the most important work we can do on this side of existence.

EPISODE 17: TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF IS NOT SELFISH



What is it that you need to do in this season of your life that is non-negotiable? Maybe it’s a night out with girlfriends. Maybe it’s going to live concerts regularly. Maybe it’s going shopping.

Whatever it is (within reason, and being mindful of your budget, of course) ALLOW yourself time and space to do it WITHOUT feeling guilty. We are better women, mothers, significant others, and business owners when we take time out for ourselves to do those things that we love.

You cannot pour from an empty cup, so quit falling into the trap that doing things for yourself is “selfish”. I call bullshit!

EPISODE 16: UNIVERSAL LAWS 10, 11, & 12.



In this episode we discuss Universal Laws number 10, 11 & 12.

Everything is on a sliding scale of varying degrees, and it’s up to us what we decide is important and the energy and enthusiasm we want to put behind it. That is the Law of Polarity. We cannot change or manifest things we are apathetic about.

Seasons. It’s not just the temperature, it is a Universal cycle of all things. There is a time to plant, and a time to reap. There are ebbs and flows, and you cannot always be up – but the good thing is, you cannot always be down, either. That’s the Law of Rhythm.

The Law of Gender. Yin and Yang. Like it or not, everything in the Universe harnesses masculine and feminine energy, and when we recognize this, it is easier to create balance in certain areas of our lives. It’s not one or the other! Your feminine and masculine energy each serve a divine purpose to help you on your path.
