How bold must we be to offer back to life in the form of accepting death what no longer serves or affirms our journey? What if our perception of the end, of death, of life are severely warped by the limitations of our Western society to embrace and return to the natural order of LIFE? These and so many other questionings float through the collective mind at times ready to be explored at times shunned away due to universal fears that we share. Why are we here? What is our purpose? How long do I have left and what am I supposed to do?
In this installment of the Death and Grief Talk Podcast; I have the honor of speaking with Aurianna Joy. I discovered Aurianna through her YouTube channel and instantly felt a connection and curiosity about her journey with Ayahuasca. Her transparency and vulnerability in sharing her health and spiritual journey inspired me during one of the more challenging and unfulfilling chapters of my life while motivating me to connect with and believe the inner voice that kept telling me there was more.
8 years later we connected on social media and when she agreed to be interviewed for my podcast, I knew the universe manifested our connection. It is my hope that through hearing her story you too will be inspired to release what is no longer serving or affirming your life while opening your hands, arms, and heart to expand and reach for more.
