{Podcast 23} Rosie Rees: get naked and go your own way

Rosie Rees She Makes Magic Podcast

If you could do anything in the world, and you knew that you could not fail, what would you want to do?

Back in 2012, sick, stressed and tired from working in the corporate world, this was the question that Rosie Rees’ good friend asked of her. Rosie, without pausing or even thinking, responded with “sex therapist”.

Strangely, at the time, Rosie was working as a recruitment agent, she was in a toxic relationship with an abusive and controlling man, and her Christian upbringing had imposed on her a whole world of hidden shame and guilt around her sexuality. It felt like a sex therapist couldn’t be farther from Rosie’s truth.

Yet Rosie says that her friend’s question sparked a fire and passion within her, giving her hope that her life could be turned around.

And, with this new-found hope, she went on to leave her corporate job and toxic relationship, start her online blog and coaching business, become a yoga instructor, quit meat, alcohol and cigarettes and, most recently, birth her Australian nude yoga tour.

Once Rosie sets her mind to something, she certainly doesn’t let fear, other people’s opinions or rational logic stand in her way.

If you’ve ever felt the pull to walk a completely different path from the one you’re on now but feel like it’s too scary, overwhelming or just plain irrational, this story is for you.

Enjoy.

In this interview, Rosie shares:

+ Her story from recruitment agent to relationship coach to nude yoga instructor and all the fears and challenges in between.

+ How she worked through the fear of transitioning from the corporate world to running her own business.

+ The creative and diverse methods she used to generate an income for herself when her business was in the start-up phase.

+ The methods she uses to clear pain from past relationships, overcome shame and guilt, reconnect with herself and her sexuality, lift her energy levels and increase her creativity.

+ The importance of finding balance between seeking external assistance and tuning into your own inner guidance.

+ The importance of staying true to yourself, regardless of the opinions of others.

    Thank you so much for this podcast!

    I read about She Makes Magic in Peppermint magazine…I’ve been very disconnected from myself lately and listening to this pod cast has really given me some inspiration to tap in to what I really want to do, and to listen to how that makes me feel.

    So thank you for being there for me!

      Hi Tulasi! So glad you found us and that this podcast helped you come back to yourself. Peppermint is an awesome mag.

      So tell me, what is it that you really want to do? xx

        I really just want to get back in touch with my creative side. I used to sew a lot and love it. And I’ve had a lot of ideas lately about what I could do with this skill and it really excites me! If I keep going with the flow and just do what I want to do and work hard for it, I’ll be one happy lady!

        🙂 xx

        Beautiful! Follow those creative nudges. That’s where the gold lies. we created the podcast series based solely off a little creative nudge :-). Come back and share with us what you’re sewing. I’d love to see. x

    What a magical podcast – one of my faves in your wonderful series. My answer overwhelmed me when Rosie asked “what would you do …?” I didn’t think. My inner voice just shouted ‘be an artist. Make art. Splash paint on huge canvases.’ I lit a candle and started journaling. It elaborated to include growing lots of fruits and veggies and decluttering my home so I have a calm environment. Lovingly preparing nourishing food (and transitioning to eating lots more plant-based foods). Indulging and investing in exercise that makes my body happy. And celebrating my spirituality by reading books, joining circles, going to festivals, etc. Thank you folks for that amazing podcast!!! xxoo
