“I came to see that holding onto resentment and anger doesn’t benefit me, it imprisons me." – Dr. Melody Moore
We have the social entrepreneur, licensed Clinical Psychologist, yoga teacher, author, speaker, and founder and president of Embody Love Movement, Melody Moore, Ph.D., RYT, on DENtalks Podcast today! Embody Love Movement is a non-profit whose mission is to empower girls and women to celebrate their inner beauty, commit to kindness, and contribute to meaningful change in the world. Dr. Moore is doing incredible work and shares with us her own personal struggles with body image, her traumatic childhood, how yoga came into her life and how she uses it as a tool today, why she believes dieting doesn’t work, how our plates reveal what is going on in our mind and life and the importance of pausing and taking a deep breath. We even get into a conversation about the #MeToo movement, how we all need to take responsibility for our actions, and how movements like this are important for the rewiring of what is right and wrong in society. She even opens up deeply about her affair and the importance of learning how to forgive yourself. Dr. Moore is relatable and a wealth of knowledge and we feel so lucky to have her as a guest on DENtalks. Don’t forget to stick to the end as Dr. Moore guides us through a short meditation on tapping into your truth.
“I think of our plate as a diorama of what’s happening in our mind and our inner world.” – Dr. Melody Moore
- Tapping into your Truth
- Who’s your spiritual teacher? Seane Corn
- A book you keep going back to? When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron
- What’s your go to practice? I lean into the mirror, look into my eyes and connect with my soul. I take a breath, look in my eyes and whatever comes out is what I need to hear in that moment.
- Type of Meditation you rely on most?
Psychic Meditation which is energy tools, visual meditation which is also her personal practice
- Helpful tip for valuable meditation?
Focus on your breath, take the pressure off yourself that you have to do it right. Keep showing up and try different meditation to find what works for you.
- Self-Care Hack?
I make sure to clear everyone out of my space every night and get out into nature. I clear people’s energy by creating a bubble out infront of you, putting everyone from the day in that bubble, and then blow up the bubble. This gives the person their energy back.
- If you could give any piece of life advice what would it be?
If you don’t like how things are going, believe that you can change your perception and everything else will change.
