When we let fear hold us back from setting boundaries, we miss out on healthy relationships and real love.
What keeps you from setting clear boundaries with the people in your life?
Are you afraid of judgment? Being thought of as high-maintenance, mean, or controlling?
Or maybe you don’t know HOW to set boundaries in a way that works?
In today’s episode, we’re talking with Terri Cole, licensed psychotherapist and author of Boundary Boss: The Essential Guide to Talk True, Be Seen, and (Finally) Live Free. In her book, Terri teaches her readers how to set boundaries in a way that will help us live healthier, happier lives.
I have to be honest (always!): I rarely finish a book. But when I received my copy of Boundary Boss, I couldn’t put it down. I finished it in three days!
As I was reading, I kept thinking about you, my listeners.
If you’re searching for ways to live an authentic life as both fully human and fully divine, you need to set boundaries.
Boundaries aren’t about being bossy or controlling or selfish. Boundaries are about making clear your preferences, desires, limits, and deal-breakers to live a more honest, embodied life.
Among other things, clearly and consistently communicated boundaries:
But setting boundaries when you haven’t before can also be scary.

Since 2013 I’ve been developing a body of work that helps women embody self love, healing and wholeness. We do this by focusing on the four levels of consciousness - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
In practical terms this looks like exploring tools and practices to help you tune into the deep wisdom of the body and the knowing of the heart, which I believe are gateways to our souls. Then we cultivate a new relationship with our minds that allows the mind to serve this wisdom and knowing and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.
If you’ve been doing self help or spiritual development work for a while, these are the types of foundational things that often people overlook in pursuit of fancier concepts that often aren’t practical or sustainable. Here, we will focus on building these strong foundations so you can honestly and thoroughly embody self love.
