K + L also delve into the feelings that surfaced, and how they support themselves in those low moments.

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are digging into the male perspective on upleveling with Heath Ellis! As a Soul Coach for Men, Heath helps men shift the trajectory of their lives and come into alignment with their purpose—what he calls “the path of the conscious man.” Krista’s fiancé, Justin, had a very impactful coaching session with Heath, and is joining in on the conversation.

Heath shares how he was not always on this path of self-knowing, and completely changed the direction of his life in his late 20s. Although successful, he was miserable in his job, and decided to change the course of his life after a meditation retreat and his Akashic Records reading (aka your soul’s record). In our conversation, we talk greatly about the differences in the masculine and feminine approaches to healing. Heath explores holding vs. creating space, patterns of limiting beliefs, and steps to helping men be more sovereign. He explains his structure for checking in with your partner on how each of you is doing, and Krista and Justin share how they implement this practice. We wrap up the conversation with insightful books, and Heath reveals the key to a successful self-care ritual.

Heath is offering 30% off single coaching sessions using the code ALMOST30 at consciousman.com/impact-sessions.



We also talk about:

  • Why Heath left his software company
  • How Heath began shifting problems and pain points
  • What are Akashic Records?

We’re talking sex, pleasure, and relationships with sexologist, Alexandra Fine! Alexandra is the cofounder and CEO of the sexual wellness company, Dame Products. From personal and couple’s vibrators, to sex pillows and natural lubricants—Dame is a one-stop-shop for all your sexual needs.

In our conversation, Alex unravels her journey to creating Dame. She felt the sex toy industry was out of date, so she began by making vibrators in her kitchen and having her friends test them out. We ask about her experience with pushback and shame for her career choice, and how she navigates that. Alex shares her experience with getting to know and exploring her own body, and why she encourages diversity in masturbation routines. We dive into non-monogamy relationships, with Alex being very open about her monogamish marriage, including how they make it work and benefits of sexual freedom.

She emphasizes the importance of consistency with diet, sleep, and movement for helping to lower anxiety and regulate a dis-regulated nervous system. We ask about anxiety around sleep, and Dr. LePera explains how retraining our focus to be outside of our mind through breath work can help with sleep issues.
