Are you making choices that are in alignment with your values? Are you taking actions that support your life purpose? It takes a lot of courage, clarity and, most importantly, self-love to do so. And that’s what we’re talking about today! In this episode of the IHML Show, we’re chatting with Dr. Andrea Pennington, an integrative physician, sex educator, TEDx speaker and talk show host. As an acupuncturist, meditation teacher and spiritual mentor, Andrea is also a number one international best-selling author. Her latest book, “I Love You, Me!” explores her personal journey from depression to real self-love.
Andrea’s journey has led her from medical school, to an Internet startup, to the Discovery Channel, to building her own Wellness Center and, most recently, her own boutique branding and publishing agency, Make Your Mark Global. Throughout her life, she suffered from depression and even experienced suicidal thoughts as a teenager. Although her life looked successful and fulfilling on the outside (she was even on the Oprah Winfrey Show!), Andrea wasn’t truly happy. And it wasn’t until she began making choices in alignment with her values and with what her soul wanted to accomplish that she began to heal and transform her life. After this episode, you’ll be inspired to bring your true self to the surface and follow those little nuggets of wisdom that come to you along your journey.
During this episode we’re going to cover…
- How tapping into her creativity helped Andrea push through depression in medical school
- The decision that sparked her entrepreneurial passion
- How she manifested her job at Discovery Channel
- The fame and pressure that led to her own powerful spiritual awakening
- Why it is so important to be your authentic self and share your vulnerabilities
- How the “real self-love movement” is changing the world (and why you need to know about it!)
One of my favorite quotes from this episode is this:
“Each step along our journey is going to equip us with other tools and other insights and other relationships. We can’t get too attached on that that first vision, because that might just be what the universe is giving you to get you into motion. Be open to how that’s going to change and shift and morph as you grow and develop.” – Dr. Andrea Pennington
