In this episode we quickly focus on values and how they can help drive our decision-making and prioritizing. We get practical with time management, but we also try to go deeper about how to be mindfully self-driven when managing our time and energy.
It’s hard to actually listen and listen well. In this episode the hosts explore their own pitfalls and areas of growth with listening and the intentions, habits, and skills that they believe would lead to a world with better listeners.
…and we are (trying not to be) material girls. Amazon, takeout, buy-with-one-click, oh my! It’s a money-guzzling jungle out there. The hosts try to be honest with their materialistic ways in this episode while also exploring ways to stay grounded in the world of one-day shipping and our general confusion between wants and needs.
It’s hard to think in the middle when anxiety is so good at pushing us to far end of catastrophizing. In this episode, we discuss how to recognize all or nothing thinking and ways to get out of that unhelpful way of thinking.
One of our favorite millennial topics- therapy! But was it, actually? How do we know it’s working? What kind of therapist is Emily K? Listen to find out!
Welcome to season 4! It was delightful for the Emilys to be back together sharing ideas, weird to be talking separately due to covid, and so nice to be getting back in touch with what soulshine is all about.
Dear listeners, this season was produced during the pandemic. We thought it might be pretty hard but, we’re getting better at recording and we LOVE this podcast, so it was a joy to do. We’ll end with this– “everybody has a life, but not everybody knows how to live it.” Go, let your souls shine! We believe in you. Big (covid safe) hugs, Emily K. and Emily O.
Ram was enlightened AF. The Emilys discuss his life after discovering meditation and spirituality. Ram said, “People don’t seem to know that they are soul. We pinch ourselves to know we’re alive in this life. The soul is in the heart level. That’s the entry point.” The hosts couldn’t agree more.

The episode that’s been talked about since season one! Emily O. has had a vision board since she was 20. Emily K. has seen it work with clients and has one herself. These special boards help to bring our attention, even subconsciously, to our biggest desires/goals/dreams/plans and help them come to fruition. The Emilys offer suggestions on how to make a vision board, and also share intimate details about their current boards. Hopefully, this episode will inspire you to make your own.
Dancing is allowed but not required for this episode. The hosts come at this topic from different angles, but ultimately discuss the soul beneath all of the roles we play on a daily basis. What’s beneath the ego? What would be different if we thought more about nurturing our souls and less about, say, our next job promotion?
