[00:00:58] Gloria Grace Rand, uh, as the intro just said, and I am delighted to be with you today. We’re going to be talking about one of my favorite subjects with a, with a woman I’ve become acquainted with, through Facebook. Actually. I know for quite a while, and I’m going to, I’m going to bring her on and just right now and welcome her to the show.
[00:01:20] And then I’ll tell you a little bit more about why she is an expert in money and money mindset. So first off I want to welcome Erin Newman to live love engage
[00:01:31] Erin Newman: hello Gloria, thanks for having me.
[00:01:34] Gloria Grace Rand: Well, I’m glad you’re here. I’m very glad to have you today. Because as I said, this is one of my favorite subjects because money and money mindsets and money blocks are things that I’ve had to work through myself.
[00:01:49] Erin Newman: Don’t we all?
[00:01:50] Gloria Grace Rand: Yes. You know, all these old patterns and things that weren’t even mine, that I kind of took on. But let me, let me enlighten our audience for those of you who, uh, whether you’re watching today, live on your Facebook, LinkedIn, or YouTube, or you are listening to this, uh, recording on, uh, one of the lovely podcast platforms.
[00:02:11] Let me tell you who Erin is. She is a speaker, author, money, mindset, mentor, and soul fire ignitrix for women entrepreneurs. I definitely want to ask you about that later. Don’t let me forget that she helps business owners to overcome mindset blocks to money so that they can truly do what lights them up in their business and make the income they desire.
[00:02:36] And through a mixture of mix of mindset and energetic healing tools, she also helps women in particular to finally vanquish those mind gremlins, follow their soul purpose, and create a new pathway to abundance, success, and joy. So. I am curious. One of the things I always like to do is to ask our guests really what prompted you to get into this line of work?
[00:03:04] How, how did you become this money mindset mentor?
[00:03:09] Erin Newman: Well uh, I think like most of us in the healing professions, we had to do our own work around, You know, the thing that we’re healing. I don’t know if I lost you Gloria. Hope not.
[00:03:26] Gloria Grace Rand: No, no no. I’m here.
[00:03:28] Erin Newman: So, you know, I mean, like everybody, I had to go through my own process of healing those stories and, you know, I didn’t grow up with a lot of money, so, and we were always in these places, I think, a big disparity, so we didn’t have a lot of money, but we would always go to the best school system, which meant usually in America that a lot of times, you know, the people around you have more. Right. So I would see that growing up. And, obviously that made a big impression on me. And then when I was in my early twenties and moving through my twenties, I started to discover money mindset work, and really being able to.
[00:04:08] Not just in the realm of money, but in my entire life, being able to change my thoughts and how much that really impacted what I was seeing around me. And I think that’s probably, the starting point for all of us as healers or those who are on a healing journey, which is really starting to take responsibility for our lives and what’s happening in our lives.
[00:04:29] And so, You know, I underwent that process, for many things and still am undergoing that process, of course. But a big piece of that for me was healing my money mindset and really looking into what are the things like you already named? You know, what are the things that were handed down to me? And, and really not even just from our parents, but from society, from our ancestors, our grandparents, you know, I came from a long line of the very like humble.
[00:04:57] And, you know, you don’t talk about money. You have to work really hard for your money. You know, I have that on both sides, as many of us do, and so when you start looking into that and start exploring those things, Yeah, it just, it just, for me, it just had to become part of my work. You know, it had to become part of the work that I was doing out in the world.
[00:05:18] Gloria Grace Rand: Well, I appreciate that you are doing that cause yeah, it is. It’s so challenging because especially. I think for entrepreneurs, we you know, you’ll watch other people seem to be really successful and, and you are struggling and you’re wondering, you know, okay, I think I’m doing the same things. And I seem to be taking the same actions and I’m, and I’m following, you know, this mentor and, and I’m doing all these things.
[00:05:44] And yet the money just doesn’t seem to be coming in. Have you found that in, in working with clients, uh, a similar thing and, and, and how then do you help them with that?
[00:05:56] Erin Newman: Yeah, absolutely. And you know, also want to name too, that it’s always a process, right. I mean, even, even when, you get to a point that you thought like, okay, at this point, I’m going to feel like I’m there and I won’t have to work on any of this anymore.
[00:06:11] You know, I know for my clients and for myself, even getting to a certain point in your income, you still feel like, okay, well there’s a next level and there’s more for me. And there’s more expansion here and there’s more growth here. And then you still come up against those old money blocks. So what I always share with people about this work is, is that we are not looking to get to a space where we never have a block again, we never have a fear again, we never have a doubt again. We’re looking to get to a space where we can come back into alignment and much faster. We can see what’s showing up for us much faster. And again, I mean, this isn’t just money mindset work. This is all, you know, this is all of our work. It’s not about never having the problem or the issue show up again.
[00:06:53] It’s about getting back into alignment, seeing it, bringing it to our conscious awareness much faster so that we can move through it much faster and, and get back to, you know, whatever it is, whatever moves us forward. Even if that. For that day, is a nap? Right? It doesn’t have to be this big action, but, you know, stepping back into aligned action all the time.
[00:07:14] Gloria Grace Rand: Absolutely. Yeah. I can totally relate to that because, uh, I’ve, that’s been a hard, hard lesson. Yeah. I especially a few years ago, for me, it was, it was wanting to be fixed. You know, I was, I was like, when am I just, everything’s going to be there. I’m going to have, and it’s like, no life is a journey.
[00:07:35] Okay. You’re going to expand and contract and expand and contract until I’ve I’ve I’ve gotten to be more at peace with that and, and can appreciate too, as you said, that it is really about recognizing maybe old patterns and going, wait a minute. Okay. Do I really want to do that again? Or, or I’ve learned how to handle this better.
[00:07:58] I don’t really have to, I don’t have to go down that road again. Uh, so tell, tell us a little bit though, I guess maybe if you can maybe elaborate a little bit more about what is a money mindset in particular having, having, I wouldn’t say good money mindset, but maybe having a expansive money mindset. Oh yeah.
[00:08:21] I like that. Is it important for, you know, to be able to get into that next level in business?
[00:08:27] Erin Newman: Yeah. And I think, you know, honestly I think all entrepreneurs are working on this, even if they don’t consciously recognize it. Right. Because if you are getting to some point in your business, and you’re staying at that same point over and over again, right?
[00:08:41] Maybe it’s, a certain income level. Maybe it’s a certain number of clients, you know, a certain level of success. You are going to have to work on your money mindset in order to get to that next level. Again, whether that’s conscious or not, you know, you might find a different way of telling yourself, you know, certain beliefs in order to get you to that next level.
[00:09:02] But I think it’s really cool when you can start to bring this work to your conscious awareness. So that again, you get to come back into alignment much, much faster. And, you know, the way I do that with my clients is through tapping or EFT. And so we’re actually looking into what is your subconscious telling you?
[00:09:21] What are those very specific blocks that come up for you? And I think they all have personally the same core, which is I’m not enough in some way, you know, some thread of there’s something wrong with me specifically that doesn’t allow me to get to where I want to be. And we have that manifested in a bunch of different ways, right?
[00:09:45] We all have our own version of that. But I think that’s what the core belief is about is I’m not enough in some way. And so when we can look at, how does that manifest for me? How does it show up for me? What are the patterns there? What are the memories there? What are the, things that I have associated with that belief?
[00:10:02] Why do I believe that to be true? You know, and again, that might be part of the, I have to work really hard or I’m not, you know, I’m not quite as educated or eloquent or pretty enough, or, you know, whatever, to get to that next level. We want to look into those. Where did those get instilled? You know, again, maybe that’s ancestral, maybe it’s from your family of origin.
[00:10:24] Maybe it’s from society right? We want to look into where did those come from? Where is your subconscious telling you, you’re not enough in some way, and then can we release them? Can we let go of those beliefs? And again, it’s not about releasing them forever and ever, but you know, releasing them for right now, releasing them in this moment so that you can take the action you want to take, or, you know, do whatever it is that you want to do in your.
[00:10:48] Gloria Grace Rand: Hmm. Now you mentioned, uh, that you use a tapping or EFT. Uh, can you explain a little bit more about what that is for people? Because there are still some people out there don’t know what that is.
[00:11:01] Erin Newman: Yeah, for sure. Yeah. I kind of just dropped that on you guys. Yeah, so it’s really an energetic processing tool.
[00:11:07] It’s been really well researched at this point. The, Veteran Affairs uses it for depression and anxiety with returning soldiers. And veterans. So again, it’s been really well researched it’s out there in the medical community at this point. So it’s not just the woo-woo people who are using it. but I really do love it in a woo-woo way because it’s getting into, by tapping on these energy meridians in your body. You’re accessing that stuck energy and allowing it to be released. And I think it gets into your subconscious really quickly. So as you’re doing that tapping, your body is connected to what you’re saying and you’re able to process through. I’m just actually showing you guys what this looks like by tapping on these parts of my body.
[00:11:53] You’re able to process through where those things are getting stuck in your system, right? So if it’s an older memory or if it’s an old belief, you can actually release that through tapping. And again, it’s really great if we can get into the roots of it, you know, where did this come from? How did this show up first for you?
[00:12:13] What do you first remember around this and tap on that a little bit. And sometimes I’ll have people just kind of tap a couple rounds on that very specific memory and see if we can get those things to disassociate. Right? So that if it does start showing up in your world, again, it doesn’t have such a, such a strong trigger anymore, or it shouldn’t have that strong trigger anymore.
[00:12:35] Gloria Grace Rand: Now I know you, one of the things you’ve… in preparing for this interview, you had mentioned that you wanted to talk about the number one easy way to release money blocks. So is EFT really what you would consider the best way to do it? Or is there something else?
[00:12:51] Erin Newman: You know, I honestly think you can start with journaling, now I think it’s hard for people to… well, I shouldn’t say that. You can tap on your own. You can definitely tap on your own. And I do, and people do, and you definitely should try it. But journaling is such an easy way to kind of look into what is my subconscious telling me. And one of my favorite favorite questions is really asking yourself, you know, at the top of your piece of paper, you know, whatever your goal is.
[00:13:18] And again, that could be clients that could be income, whatever, you know, maybe it’s a health goal even. Asking yourself, why don’t I deserve to be here? And then it’s writing out whatever comes up, because those are the blocks. Those are the things that your subconscious believes to be true. And even if your conscious mind is like, oh my gosh, no, Gloria, like, you’re awesome.
[00:13:38] You’re amazing. Right? All the things we’ve wanted to be true. That’s cool. Let the subconscious tell you. And that’s what we want to look at. So yeah, for me, for me, the process always starts with journaling. If I’m doing it on my own, If you’re doing it with a practitioner or somebody else with a coach or somebody, then they’re able to ask those questions when you’re sort of in that, uh, that state of openness.
[00:14:01] But yeah, I think, I think journaling is the best way to get there for, for yourself if you’re just kind of doing this on your own.
[00:14:08] Gloria Grace Rand: Yeah. I love, I love journaling. Whenever I’ve got, uh, something going on in my life, that’s either stressing me out or I’m frustrated or what have you. It’s so good to be able to do that.
[00:14:20] And I know I’ve, I’ve recommended to my clients to do that as well. And I had, I remember I had one client who, um, yes, She was really stuck on something and she’s like, okay, let’s write Gloria said I should journal and she’s come back to me later. I said, it really did work. And I’m like, yeah, I know it does.
[00:14:39] Erin Newman: Yeah. I mean, there’s something about that magic of like, you know, like a conduit between your subconscious and the pen, you know, like you don’t have to process it consciously.
[00:14:49] Gloria Grace Rand: Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. And I think that’s the key too is to don’t don’t overthink it. Just kind of like just write whatever. Yeah.
[00:14:57] And it’s all good. Now I mentioned in the intro and I wanted to get back to that a little bit. Cause you say that you describe yourself as a soul fire ignitrix. So explain a little bit about that. That is very intriguing to me.
[00:15:12] Erin Newman: So, you know, Like a lot of us in the entrepreneur space, I’ve gone through so many different titles.
[00:15:18] You know, when I very first started out in my business, uh, I was a life coach and then I really quickly moved into really only working with entrepreneurs pretty much from, from the very beginning because I just love entrepreneur energy. And so I was calling myself a business coach for a while because I really only do work with business owners and I work on their business.
[00:15:39] But you know, For me, what’s always so exciting and has been from the very beginning was what lights up your soul? What do you really want to do in this world? And. For me, if I was calling myself a business coach, I didn’t feel like I was really getting to that people weren’t coming in the door knowing that’s what we were going to be doing.
[00:16:01] So I wanted to make it really, really clear that we were going to be talking about what lights up your soul and how do we get more of that in your work and in your business. And of course still create the income you want to see, you know? Cause I think that’s a big fear is that if I go do what I love then I’m not going to have that income show up.
[00:16:17] Right. so. Wanted to make sure that was really clear for people. And I just love the idea of really being able to, yeah. Get back to what lights up your soul for people. So that’s where that title came from.
[00:16:30] Gloria Grace Rand: Hmm. Very good. Yeah. It’s, it’s interesting. I been through the same type of thing. And as, as I think anyone who has been in business for awhile, you do, you have to sort of evolve and change. And sometimes it’s because circumstances affect you. And then we’ve certainly had that the last couple of years, uh, you know, have people decide to pivot or had to pivot, I should say, even. And, and it’s okay. And I think what you touched on there though, I think is really important for entrepreneurs in particular.
[00:17:05] And it’s something I’ve dealt with too in like working with branding coaches over the years is to the fact that you, you know, you started off a little bit more generic and business coach, but then you realize that that really wasn’t who you even wanted to be able to. You wanted to attract a certain type of person and for you to be able to now declare that, yeah, I’m a soul fire, ignitrix. There are certain people who are gonna say, Ooh, and there’s other people are gonna go, but you want the people who are going to lean in. Right,
[00:17:34] Erin Newman: right. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. And it’s, it’s funny too, because you know, it’s, it’s, there’s also partially a piece about knowing your audience too.
[00:17:42] Right? Like I don’t walk into a cocktail party telling people I’m a soul fire ignitrix cause they’re. Like, that’s going to take 20 minutes of explanation. Right. So, uh, usually I start with, I’m a coach for entrepreneurs. They want to know more. Then we go deeper, then we go deeper. But like you said, for the people who know, they know.
[00:18:01] And so, you know, I think it’s, I think when you’re first starting in business, you get really tripped up on that. Like, oh, I’m going to have to explain this title to everybody. It’s like, I’m not gonna explain it to my neighbor when I’m walking the dog. But two people who are in the online coaching industry, they know they know what that means, or at least have a sense of what that means.
[00:18:20] And, and, yeah, they’re either really turned on by it or they’re like, see you later, crazy lady, you know?
[00:18:27] Gloria Grace Rand: Absolutely. One of the things I do also like to talk to people about is sometimes, you know, tapping into like when you first got started. So, to learn about that entrepreneurial journey a little bit.
[00:18:41] So I was wondering if maybe if it’s okay, if you could share, you know, were there some, maybe early mistakes that you made that, uh, you’ve learned from, and now…
[00:18:51] Erin Newman: There’s daily mistakes. There’s so few things that I look back on and actually think of as a mistake anymore. Really. You know, I think a lot of times people say, oh, I invested in this and it didn’t work out. Or I invested in that and it didn’t work out. There’s nothing I regret in my business having invested in and even at really, really big levels.
[00:19:19] I don’t regret any of it. You know, even if I look back and think, okay, maybe that coach or that investment, wasn’t the right thing for me or the right person for me, even then it gave me a really great sense that this is not how I want to run my business. You know, I’ve, I’ve worked with some really masculine energy coaches and, you know, it was very much about the structure and you do your webinar this way and you, you know, you structure your funnel this way.
[00:19:42] And I walked out of those thinking, I don’t want to do it like that. If that’s what this means, then I don’t want to do this. I can just go back and get a job. Right. So there’s, there’s nothing, any more in my business that I look at as a mistake. I always just ask the question. Is this where I’m being guided?
[00:19:57] Is this what’s showing up for me? And if the answer is, yes, I’m going to figure it out. I’m going to find the money. I’m going to figure out a way to do it. You know, and at the same time, I want to just really acknowledge that, like I have a lot of advantages in my life. And so when I was first starting my business, I have a husband who has a job.
[00:20:16] And so there was a safety net there for me. There was a way for me to say, okay, I’m going to quit my corporate job and go do this other thing and still know that we would still have a roof over our heads. Right. So that was, you know, that’s, that’s a lot of privilege and it’s something I really don’t take her for granted.
[00:20:33] I’m really thankful for. And, You know, it, it shifts a little bit of what you can do in your business. You know, what I could do in my business and what I could step into. And at the same time, it’s still, you still have to work for this, right? You still have to create this out of nothing. You know, nobody handed me a client list.
[00:20:54] Nobody handed me here’s the magical pathway or anything like that. So. I still had to discover all those things for myself. And I think, I think every entrepreneur does, you know, no matter if you have this magical, uh, five step plan that somebody handed to you, you’re still going to have to figure your own way out.
[00:21:14] And I think. I think that’s the hardest thing to figure out when you’re first starting out, because you do start going after all those different shiny objects. And oh, and if I just learned this, then my business is going to take off. If I just learn this, then my business is going to take off. And I think all of those things go into the magical stew of what makes you, you, but none of them are the one thing.
[00:21:35] None of them are the, you know, absolute, this is it. This is what’s gonna take me to success. Like they just all. Filter into your unique way of going forward, your unique way of expressing yourself in the world. And. Yeah, that was a long-winded answer.
[00:21:53] Gloria Grace Rand: That was a good answer though. I, and I appreciate it because yeah, I have been there too, and it is, it doesn’t do any good to like beat yourself up over mistakes, but instead treat it more as learning experiences.
[00:22:06] And I’ve had a lot of learning experiences and, but, but I agree with you is that at the time it seemed right because otherwise you wouldn’t have done it.
[00:22:18] Erin Newman: Right.
[00:22:19] Gloria Grace Rand: And, and if you can take, you know, there have been things I’ve invested in, you know, some, I didn’t spend a lot, some, I did take a lot, spent a lot on, but there were still things that I got out of value.
[00:22:32] Maybe achieve the ultimate goal of what the program was intended to do. And part of that was because I wasn’t ready. Yeah.
[00:22:43] Erin Newman: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like there’s so many times where, you know, I mean, even recently I did a, I did a, it was, uh, six or eight week. I can’t remember eight week group coaching program with another coach.
[00:22:56] And the whole point of the program was to put together our own group. And I had run groups in the past, but you know, really starting to formulate that and formulate the messaging around it. And I got to the end of that group and I said, I don’t want to do this. I don’t want to put together and spend 8 weeks building that was like, I don’t want to do it.
[00:23:18] I don’t feel like doing it. I don’t feel like right now, maybe it’ll come later. I don’t know, but it’s actually now come to fruition months later, but I felt kind of at the end of that group, I kind of felt like a loser, like, oh my God, we spent all this time on this. And I spent all this energy and this money and to put this thing together and I don’t even want to do it anymore.
[00:23:37] And then it’s just, it was just the timing, you know, and it’s kind of. Now it all comes to fruition and I’ve been able to use a lot of that in, in what I’ve, what I’m now offering to people. And so it’s just kind of, I mean, it all, you know, it all helps, it all moves you forward in some way. And I don’t, like you said, you know, You can’t regret any of them, they’re just opportunities for learning and you just…
[00:24:03] Gloria Grace Rand: yeah. I like to say everything happens in divine timing. And so we can just trust that there is a reason that for whatever, you know, that didn’t work or it didn’t seem right, because you know, now you are able to use that. And that’s the important thing. So it’s, it all works out, which is great. I want to ask you when you’re working with clients, what, uh, what brings you the most joy when you’re working with someone?
[00:24:37] Erin Newman: It’s honestly, when they realize that they can skip over that part of the process that they thought they really had to do in order to do the thing they really wanted to. So usually, there’s. A bunch of beliefs about, oh, I, we, I need to do X, Y, and Z first in order to create X in my life and in my business.
[00:25:00] And you know, when we start working on those mindset beliefs, it’s with the understanding that you have all that you need right now in order to do exactly what you want to do, and whether that’s in your marketing, whether that’s in your launch, whether that’s in your. Yeah, it can be any aspect of your business, but, you know, for instance, one of my clients, Courtney came in and she really wanted to be a speaker, a thought leader.
[00:25:26] You know, I want to be speaking on big stages. I want to get paid for that. And she was like, well, I know I have to start with coaching first. I have to do the whole coaching route first. And what we really worked on for her was skipping over that whole stage. Cause she didn’t want to do the coaching at all.
[00:25:42] Actually she was like, actually I don’t really want to do that. I just want to go straight to the speaking part. So, I mean, that might sound obvious, but like we all have these beliefs about, okay, it’s going to take X, Y, and Z steps. It’s going to take these three things, or I’m going to have to do my launch this way in order to, you know, have 10 people in my group.
[00:25:58] And it’s really getting into the knowledge that if you’re seeing this, if God source universe is showing you this vision, then there isn’t anything you have to do first. Right. You can just step into the vision already. Uh, and so. You know, getting to work on those blocks with people and getting to work on those beliefs with people that just catapult them into the thing, whatever the thing is for them. You know, I want to write my book. I want to be on stages. I want to be getting paid to speak, you know, whatever they want to do. Let’s do that. Let’s do that already without having to do the things that society told you, you had to do, or even the coaching industry told you, you had to do first. So
[00:26:36] Gloria Grace Rand: I love that. Yeah. It’s I’d love being able to see people make those, those leaps are really great when they can. Yeah, realize that they can skip over things and they don’t have to obsess over what they were obsessing over is wonderful. Yeah. Is there anything I should’ve asked you about regarding, you know, overcoming money mindset blocks or anything that I haven’t asked you about that, uh, we should touch on?
[00:27:08] Anything else? That’s important
[00:27:10] Erin Newman: what’s coming for me right now is really, That ancestral piece of the money mindset blocks, because I think, this stuff is really old, you know, and it’s really, I just feel this, sometimes this weight of what’s been passed down to us and what’s been handed down to us and, you know, especially for women of color who, you know, came from an enslaved population, you know, think about the weight of that that’s been passed down to people and you know, when we really start to shift and look at those really old stories, those really old beliefs. Those really old traumas that are stored in our bodies. And get to release them. You know, we’re healing that not just for ourselves, but we’re healing that for our descendants, for our communities, for the people around us so that they can see, oh, look, there’s someone who looks like me, whatever that means to you, you are someone that looks like me, who’s doing this thing.
[00:28:10] And we get to go out there and shine our lights in that way. Oh my God. That’s so cool. And they get to make really great money at it. Oh my God. That’s so cool. Right. And so I think it’s important that. Yes, it’s cool to heal your money blocks. Yes, it’s cool to do this work, but we don’t just do it for ourselves.
[00:28:29] You know, we’re doing it for, for the people around us who look at somebody, you know, maybe they look at me, or you Gloria or somebody, you know, somebody around us and say, look at her. She did this. And she came from this background and she, you know, didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth and she’s still doing this.
[00:28:45] Oh, my gosh. That’s possible for me too. So yeah, remembering that this work is not just about us. It’s not just what we’re doing for ourselves in our own little room, you know, in our journal, like we are doing this so that the world gets to expand and grow and have unlimited possibility for, for all people.
[00:29:04] Gloria Grace Rand: Yeah, I noticed that I was, I was looking actually at your website and I noticed that, uh, in the, about section, you, you talk about, that you’re very passionate about, about speaking out and, and really helping people of color. Do you want to expand on that a little bit about what prompted that for you?
[00:29:24] Erin Newman: Yeah. So, I’ll probably (unintelligible) or something. Sorry.
[00:29:34] I just feel like, uh, there’s been, for me, it’s been a real spiritual awakening, to really look at what’s happening in our world, what’s happening, to people of color and what that looked like. And I feel. I feel guilty that it’s taken me this long. I feel guilty that, you know, that awareness has come so late in my life.
[00:30:08] and I lived so long as a white woman who said, well, you know, We’re all equal racism is, you know, when, when Obama was elected in the United States, there was a, there was a part of me that was like, great. Racism is over, you know, we’re good. We’re through this. And I think, I think that was definitely a belief system of a lot of white women and white people.
[00:30:30] And coming to terms with, the injustices and the things that are still perpetuated here and in our prison system, in our education system and in all of our systems, right. Because our country has been built on white supremacy and just really being able to look at that, acknowledge that, see that and see what that looks like.
[00:30:53] It’s it’s. I think once you have that awareness, you can’t, you can’t not do something with it. You can’t just look away and keep going. So.
[00:31:06] Gloria Grace Rand: Well, I appreciate that. I appreciate you sharing that. And for being, being vulnerable and letting your emotions show because yeah. I, I totally relate. And, and I knew when, when everything was going on with the black lives matter and, you know, and George Floyd and everything, I, I was really, you know, I was doing, I had just started the podcast for I’d only been going on for about six months and I started really seeking out, voices and, and to be able to put people on the show who, and who could talk about that. And, and, and I would say, you know, I don’t know, you know, please, you know, I’m, I’m a woman of privilege of white woman and, you know, I, I don’t understand. And I, I want to, and I know it’s difficult to be able to have conversations.
[00:31:51] And one thing I know that it is, it does seem like it’s still a crazy and people can feel hopeless. And at the same time, I have seen that there are a lot of people out there who are reaching out and are, wanting to engage in dialogue, you know, like someone like yourself. And so if we can continue to do that and continue to reach out and, and be able to communicate with one another, I think the tide will shift.
[00:32:22] And I, and I think it really is women who are going to help to do that who are really going to be able to we’ve had this patriarchal society too many, too many, too many thousands of years now. And we need to swing the pendulum back and bring some feminine energy in. And, uh, so we’ll get there. It’s not going to be easy, but we can persevere and then get there.
[00:32:45] Erin Newman: Yeah. I love that message of hope and, yeah, it just, I, I do think it is going to be women leading this, this path. Yeah, like you named just moving forward and starting with acknowledging where we’ve been, you know, cause like any kind of healing work, it, it can’t happen without the acknowledgement of right where you’re at, you know, and like, you know, the work you do, Gloria and the work I do is really about seeing what’s happening for that person and, and, you know, Within the social justice realm that has to happen too.
[00:33:22] We have to say, this is where we came from. This is what we’re still working on. This is, what’s still an issue. This is still, this is still hurting people. And so we can’t move forward without doing that work. And. It sucks. It’s hard. It’s really, really hard. So, yeah, but
[00:33:40] Gloria Grace Rand: we’ll get there so, well, I, before we close out today, I would want to be able to of course, invite any of our listeners who’ve listened to you today and want to be able to maybe feel like, Ooh, I really need to get in touch with Erin and, and talk about some things. What is the best place for, uh, folks to connect with you?
