#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.

#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.

#7 How Melissa Leger Lost The Weight

Her cell phone rings. It’s her boss that doesn’t live in New York City and he’s flying in to town for the night. He asks her to meet him at the Grand Hyatt Hotel at Grand Central.

For a second she thinks, “Am I getting fired?” Then she immediately looks at her calendar and sees that the meeting is supposed to last 2 ½ hours. She wasn’t getting fired. It was actually quite the opposite.

In today’s soul encounter, relationship expert Melissa Leger, shares how one defining moment led to a series of events that completely transformed her life in 2017.

You’ll learn how she’s lost the weight that’s been holding her back from fully thriving, and how she’s keeping the weight off. Melissa also shares the one question that you should really be asking yourself in 2018.

#6 How To Relieve Pain and Prevent Injury with Jen Esquer

I have to admit, I have always loved finding THE gift. The one thing that brings the biggest smile to someone’s face.

I feel like a little kid with a ton of excitement brewing in my body because today’s guest, brings us the opportunity to have one of the best gifts I think we could all have. And that is, a body that is pain free.

A body where we have the freedom to move with no restrictions, and no boundaries. Can you imagine what that would feel like?

You see, your mind and body have a reciprocal relationship.

If your body is stiff and tight, and filled with pain and aches, how can your mind fully relax? And vice versa. If your mind is filled with negativity and toxic thoughts, how can your body fully relax?

When your body is free, your mind can be free to create, to design, to love. I think that’s one of the best gifts we could have.

Our guest, Jen Esquer, provides a solution to so many physical challenges that are holding us back from living to our fullest potential.

She is a doctor of physical therapy based here in Los Angeles, and she has helped thousands to get out of pain. I am honored to have her as a guest on The Soul Encounters podcast.

And I’m incredibly excited for you to meet her and to hear all of the wonderful wisdom that she shares.

Take a listen, and please share your thoughts in the comments below. Also, be sure to share this encounter with a friend, a sista, a cousin, or a co-worker that you think could benefit.

With mad love and crazy hugs,

Elaine Z.
