#13 How Food Transformed Joi Stearns Life & Inspired Her To Open Joi Cafe

Joi Stearns is an incredible woman who is raising the bar for how things are done in the restaurant industry.

She has always had a passion for food, cooking, and entertaining.

However, after losing her mother to cancer, having a daughter who suffered from gluten and food allergies, and a son with ADD, she became very determined to educate herself about food as medicine.

Joi is obsessed with nutrition and is passionately committed to learning as much as she can about ways to prevent, fight, and reverse disease.

And in today’s encounter, our guest shares her journey of how she went from a Texas cookin’ mama to an organic, plant-based, gluten free restaurant owner here in sunny California.

Her kitchen creations are absolutely delicious. But most importantly our guest has a true heart of service and she is an inspiration to many people, even to those who travel from all over the world to experience her delightful recipes served at Joi Café.

Today’s encounter was truly a special one as Joi is doing what she was designed to do. And the path that led her to where she is, was filled with lots of lessons, and some major twists and turns.

Joi reminds us that anything is possible, at any age.  

I can’t wait to hear what you think!  Tell me one a-h-a that you had from today’s encounter in the comments below.

Also, if you know someone who would appreciate this encounter, please spread the love by sharing it.

With mad love and tons of hugs,

Elaine Z.

#12 Why You’re The Chosen One

In this encounter, I ask you to go inward. To start asking your soul 3 thought provoking questions that will hopefully lead you to the right answers for you.

For the longest time, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted to serve in a positive way, but I didn’t know how my innermost desires would transpire and evolve. Some people just know, ya know? But that wasn’t me.

So I went on the journey and I started to discover what I really wanted in life, and what I wanted to do for my Soul Hustle. 

And through my own journey, of trials, failures, and successes, I came to learn what my strengths are. I learned how to lean in to those strengths so that I could develop, grow, and serve in the way I was designed to do.

And the process continues to evolve daily.

I want the same for you. So, let’s go deep, and let’s get clear about what your soul wants.

Grab a paper and pen.

We are going to tackle these 3 questions so we can gain clarity around your ideal Soul Hustle. 

You know I always love hearing from you.  Please share your #1 takeaway in the comments below.

And if you find this encounter share worthy, please spread the love and send it to a friend, cousin, sister, or a co-worker that you think could benefit from it.

With Mad Love & Tons of Hugs,

#11 (Part 2) Deconstruct Your Limiting Beliefs & Activate Your Divine Gifts With Bree Melanson

Last week, our guest Bree Melanson took us through her personal journey to discovering her gifts as a spiritual medium and soul trainer. 

In today’s encounter (Part 2 of our interview), Bree takes you through an actual coaching session where she performs an energetic clearing.

She also shows you how to deconstruct your limiting beliefs, and she provides you with some tools that’ll help you to create a sacred spiritual practice for abundance and success.

If you missed Part 1, I highly recommend you pause here and go back to Soul Encounter #10, titled Deconstruct Your Limiting Beliefs & Activate your Divine Gifts with Bree Melanson

If you already checked out Part 1 of this interview, welcome back!

Get ready, because this encounter has some interesting surprises. 

I share some of my deepest fears that are holding me back, and what’s underneath those fears, may shock you. I was perplexed myself and was a little resistant to accept what Bree uncovers. 

I have to admit, I was nervous to put this encounter up as it’s always scary to put your story out there.

However, I wanted to share this experience with you because I thought you might be struggling with some things that are subconsciously holding you back from cultivating your dream body, business, or life.

We often learn through others experiences. So that’s why I put my ego aside and decided to put this in to the world.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts! Please share in the comments below one key takeaway from today’s encounter.

Also, if you know a friend, a sista, a co-worker, or a cousin who could benefit from this encounter, please spread the love and share it.

Thank you so much for tuning in each week. I appreciate you!

With mad love and tons of hugs,

Elaine Z.
