This is episode 29 and today I’m here with Amethyst Joy talking about self-care.

Amethyst has 3 littles that she co-creates with and writes about her healing journey, parenting, and generally being a person in a body under the handle Healed Mother. She also helps people reparent themselves while parenting the souls who chose them as a trained intuitive energy reader and healer.

I share our adventure at a Bat Biology and Box Building seminar at a local nature preserve.

I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.
