Episode 202: Rituals That Will Blow Your Mind and Deepen Your Presence – with Natalie MacNeil
Welcome to this episode of Bucci Radio!
Today’s episode is different than any other episode we’ve ever had. How many of us have read books or resources on the habits of successful people thinking that if we followed their steps, we would get the same results? We take on the habits of other people because we want to emulate their success, instead of carving our own path. In reality, many of our habits are no longer serving us and are keeping us on auto-pilot.
Today’s guest is Natalie Macneil. Natalie is an Emmy award-winning entrepreneur, best selling author, and creator of “She Takes on the World”, one of the top sites for female entrepreneurs. She’s also an expert on meditation, hypnosis, and has coached thousands of people. She’s a leader for moving into the new paradigm and new way of being.
Today we discuss Natalie’s new book, The Rituals, and cover rituals vs. habits, embodiment over mindset, and aliveness over automation, importance of breathwork, and how to create our own rituals alone and in a community.
