113. OVERCOMING TRAUMA WITH EFT TAPPING, FINDING LOVE & PRACTICING RADICAL SELF-ACCEPTANCE WITH GALA DARLING

 

The Big Silence is proud to welcome the fabulous Gala Darling to the show. She's the bestselling author of Radical Self-Love, Radical Radiance, and Hologram Heart, and she's all about helping women love themselves and live their dreams. Gala's been on a mission to bring EFT tapping into the modern zeitgeist, inspired by her own journey of healing from an eating disorder and depression.

She's fun, unconventional, and brings a ton of energy to everything she does. You might've caught her TEDTalk or seen her in Vogue and the New York Times – she's everywhere!

In this episode, Gala breaks down the basics of EFT tapping, shows us how it can help decrease our stress and deal with our trauma, and even guides us through a mini tapping session. Plus, she shares juicy details about her dating life, including going on 52 dates and getting engaged at 40!

She also shares amazing advice for all the single women out there, about how to amp up the good vibes before a first date, her first date uniform, and tapping techniques to calm any nerves. She even gives a peek into her new course, Lover Girl (comment or message her the word Lover on Instagram for more details!)

We also chat about her choice to not have kids and how she handles those conversations with people she’s dating and her family. Gala brings an empowering message on how women can embrace being single, recognize if they're in a healthy relationship, and practice radical self-love. Trust me, you’re going to love this one!
