#118 - How Your Boundaries Get Calibrated
Before we get into the main part of this episode, I have a big announcement! Starting in February, I’ll be offering monthly workshops to support you as you work your way through the 5-Step Boundary Solution process. Sign up for workshop updates and more details using this link! The idea of calibration is a hugely important one when you’re doing boundary work. This scale for what is standard or normal affects so many parts of our lives, from our initial reactions to people all the way to who we choose to date or to partner with. But just because you’re calibrated in a certain way regarding boundaries, it doesn’t mean you’re fated to stay there forever. You can change your calibration in a positive way, and this episode will help you get started. Biggest Takeaways From Episode #118: * The calibration we receive as children has many consequences over our lives. We are calibrated by our family around our own boundaries. For example, if we grow up in a boundary-less family, that will feel like "the norm" or standard to us. * The way in which we are calibrated largely determines the people who we are attracted to, as well as the people who we feel repelled by. This explains why people often partner with people who are similar to their parents. * Calibration isn’t static, and it can change. If you grew up in a family on the boundary-less end of the continuum and struggle to set boundaries with people, you can actively start to work on your boundaries. * Calibration can change in the other direction too, with us becoming desensitized over time. Highlights from Episode #118: * Vicki welcomes listeners to the show and wishes everyone a happy New Year! She then shares the exciting announcement that she hinted at in the last episode of 2020. [00:39] * Today’s episode is about calibration, Vicki explains, and chats about what that means. [03:32] * We learn that there are three reasons why we’re generally most impressionable (in terms of calibration) when we’re children. [07:38] * Vicki gives an overview of how calibration relates to boundaries in terms of standards. [10:01] * How you’re calibrated can affect how you react to people, Vicki explains. [14:49] * We hear some good news and some bad news about calibration. [20:46] * How do you change your calibration in a positive way once you become aware of it? [24:55] * Vicki talks about some simple ways for how to shift from being boundary-less to the healthy middle.

74. Womb Sovereignty, the Dark Feminine, and Mythopoetic Pregnancy Release - Samantha Zipporah
Your ancestors are with you every time the portal of the womb opens; our blood connects us to our lineage, to the mythic archetypes that hold meaning for us, and to our deepest inner selves. Whatever sort of womb release you experience, it lies on a continuum of commonality with all releases. Let us explore these interconnections so that we can be deeply rooted in our own bodies. TOPICS: * How Samantha got into this work * The womb as a source of pleasure and power, instead of pain * There is cellular alchemy no matter how a pregnancy ends (birth, miscarriage, abortion) and commonalities between all the different kinds of pregnancy release * Abortion is a nexus of sex and death and birth * The Dark Goddess and the Underworld Journey- seeing the release of a pregnancy through a mythic lens * Modern medicine is an industry, not a healing modality * The psychospiritual process of menstruation: when the cervix is open we can more easily access other states of consciousness * The Sacred Yes- what we are saying yes to when we say no to a pregnancy * Honoring death as a healing need in our culture * Function and access to Misoprostol * Understanding the two categories of abortion: mechanical and chemical * Demystifying the idea of a "natural abortion" * Herbs: emmenagogues and abortifacients  * Sitting at the feet of the plant elders * Systems of false authority, persecution, and the witch wound * How shame and secrecy around abortion can prolong bleeding * Conscious contraception * Giving yourself a 40 day postpartum healing period after any pregnancy release LINKS (if listening on an app that doesn’t support embedded links, find these at _ * _Samantha’s website_ * _Medicine Stories Patreon_ (podcast bonuses!) * _Medicine Stories Episode #73_ * _Mysteries of the Dark Moon: The Healing Power of the Dark Goddess_ by Demetra George * _Herbal Healing for Women_ by Rosemary Gladstar * _Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom_ by Dr. Christiane Northup * The _Womb Sovereignty Song_ performance (can also find on Soundcloud) * _Self-Managed Abortion, the Law, and CODIV-19 Fact Sheet_ * The _Self-Managed Abortion podcast_ * _Red School_ * _Guttmacher Institute Stats on Induced Abortion in the United States_ * _BBC reporting on abortion rates_ * _Wild Power_ _by Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer_ * _PlanCPills.org_ * _If/When/How_ * _Women on Waves_ _film_ * _Women on Web_ * _A New View of a Woman's Body_ _by Carol Downer_ * _Samantha Zipporah's Patreon_ * Take our fun _Which Healing Herb is Your Spirit Medicine?_ Quiz * My website _MythicMedicine.love_  * Medicine Stories _Facebook group_ * Mythic Medicine on _Instagram_ * Music by _Mariee Sioux_ (from her beautiful song Wild Eyes)
