The hard work begins when the work gets hard. An interesting perspective on what hard work means and how to listen to your inner voice to know when to push through and when to take a break.
Emily Pereira is an international retreat leader, certified yoga teacher, and life coach specializing in helping women attract soul affirming love into their lives. She lives in Costa Rica where she is building the Spirit Nature Retreat and Wellness Center. She's also the author of the forthcoming book, The Quest.
Here are some of the big topics we talked about:
A radiant woman has an energy that shines from her soul that magnetizes every person, experience and opportunity that steps into her life
Emily notes that a woman on the cover of a magazine but with a dullness to her is a strong contrast to a woman who’s not traditionally beautiful but glowing with radiance
If you see radiance in someone else it’s in you
Notice if you’ve agreed to information or thoughts that cover over your radiance
Adopt a supportive belief system that allows you to nurture our radiance
Lives that don’t feel as good as they look may have creativity blocked from flowing
Creativity is an energy part of being human; nothing in the natural world is perfect and you don’t have to be perfect either
Perfection programming - “slay it or don’t do it at all” - totally depletes radiance
When one finds her way out of this maze, it becomes her dharma to help others out
Take radical personal responsibility for your every single moment of your life
Find the gift, vibrate in gratitude, neutralize the situation, move on!
Creativity and inspiration are a gateway to the present moment
When you’re in gratitude for your life, you trust that things are working out
Emily notes a difference between qualities:
Let go of efforting, being serious, having a “problem mentality,” exhausting yourself, feeling like you punish yourself, living in competition - masculine qualities that harden us as women
Intend to have more softening feminine energies: amusement, ease, collaboration, permission, rejuvenation, light-heartedness, playfulness
Being vulnerable about the journey despite being in front of such a large audience is how Emily is staying on a path of growth
She loves the community of sisterhood, women by her side that are real - they share ups and downs of life together
In Emily’s Voice:
“Gifts are usually a shift in perspective, a recognition, a moment of clarity that leads to greater compassion for yourself, then that translates to greater compassion for others”
“It will never be enough until we feel like we’re enough.”
“Saving yourself is far sweeter than anybody else - being sovereign is a feeling like no other.”
“In moments of inspiration, we feel connected to who we are, why we’re here. Turn regrets of the past into gratitude - they were steps in getting you where you are now. They prevent future tripping because you’re connected to the present moment, which creates future.”
“You know you’re radiant when love is pouring out of you, you just want to be super friendly, compelled to compliment, flirt for no reason.”
“We should be vibrating 5x higher than men, we drop our vibration in order to get that approval from the people in charge.”

In Mary’s Voice:
“Science and spirituality are really one and the same but they are using two different languages to explain the happenings.”
“I always say that if you take a step to a new direction, then the universe, God, or whatever you believe will come in and meet you halfway.”
“You don’t have to unravel every moment of your life in order to move forward. But what you can do as the workaround, is to start the new neural pathway.”
“What I’ve discovered is that your purpose is whatever your natural skills and gifts, talents and abilities are. It’s really the rest of the world that’s tried to convince you they’re something different.”
“Everything you say, every thing you do, every word that comes out of your mouth, every choice you make, every action you take; in the thinnest sliced moment of life is either creating that deeper connection to what you want or it’s driving a disconnection.”
“True transformation happens in small pivots over time.”
“Every time that we make that choice that takes us closer to where we want to be, that’s reinforcing that neural pathway.”
