Playing with Problems: Listening to Your Light with Meghan Smith

I am excited to bring you episode number one of the Playing with Problems podcast! I’m extraordinarily grateful to my guest Meghan Smith for being the brave, vulnerable, wise, and fun human that dared to join me on this first adventure. This episode was eye-opening and powerful, and I know it can and will help many people.

In this episode, Meghan and I go deep, we laugh, it gets emotional, and we create powerful awareness and breakthroughs that left Meghan “feeling a buzz all day” (which she shared later).

Meghan is a spiritual teacher, leader, and coach. She is a former lawyer who graduated top of her class and left her success behind in choosing a life and work that makes her happy and fulfilled. She is also the Host of The Skeptic’s Guide to a Spiritual Life podcast, a wife, and a mother of two amazing kids. As a coach, she supports high-achieving women to heal from dysregulated nervous systems, co-dependency, and addictive behaviors. Through a combination of ontological coaching and spiritual teaching, Meghan leads women through the transformational process of learning to surrender, allowing them to create highly satisfying, spacious, and prosperous lives.

In this episode, we discuss:

– Meghan’s “successful life” as a lawyer, trustworthy, dependable, executed, intelligent, and at the top of their class, yet behind the scenes, was miserable

-We define success (primarily outward or societal focused) and something we coined as “evolved success,” which would include being happy and fulfilled 

-Her Rock Bottom

-What gave her the ability to walk away, to change and transform her life

-Her addiction to food and chaos, working the 12 steps and losing 120lbs

-What is she currently struggling with? Her marriage is a place where she feels she keeps hitting her head against the wall. Her avoidant attachment style keeps her distant and disconnected, and she often feels like the worst wife and mother

-We dig into separating her “dark” thoughts from her “light” thoughts and hear Meghan speak from each

-Creating awareness around true self-acceptance, surrender, getting her needs met as a person, and mother, realizing she needs more structures to take care of herself
