More Moss to the People
Midlife as a healing journey.
Summary of Podcast:
Imagine being able to heal perimenopause symptoms through insight alone. By consciously choosing JOY over stress, Tania Elfersy did just that.
Today, Tania helps other women reach natural relief for their perimenopause and menopause symptoms.
“Within every single woman there is a very clear intuitive part of us, which surfaces at midlife.”
I say YES to this! It appears, I became an ‘elder’ a looonnng time ago.
Instead of consuming more herbs, potions and medicines, perhaps the answer is already INSIDE us? By considering the nature of our thoughts, slowing down and reducing the stressors in our lives, we can tune into the wiser woman within.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:
1. Tania helps women find natural symptom relief in perimenopause and menopause.
2. ‘The Wiser Woman’s Guide to Perimenopause and Menopause’ is the name of her book. Within every single woman lies a very clear intuitive part of us, which surfaces at midlife.
3. Eight years ago, through the power of choice, Tania witnessed the spontaneous recovery of her own symptoms.
4. Many women do not understand perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause as a gradual change.
5. “Why would my body be getting it wrong?”
6. Tania discovered she was creating her stress by taking her life too seriously. Her body was creating the symptoms due to stress.
7. Her sensitive body was telling her to wake up from the path that was not serving her.
8. Once she had an insight about the nature of thought, all symptoms cleared up almost overnight.
9. If she returned to take the thought of “I’m not enough” seriously, her symptoms could return again.
10.We have an incredible guidance system within us longing for a gentler connection.
11. Konenki is the term for menopause in Japanese and we can see how it differs: a season of energy and change from the age of 40-60, graduating into an elder.
12. What a refreshing view point: moving from being deficient to a rite of passage.
13. The Beach and the intention to see without glasses is an amazing story. Going to the beach for expansive views.
14. By prioritizing time in her life to do nothing, by finding her bliss at the beach, and by healing her eyesight, the chapters of her book became apparent. This happened when she let go of the pressure.
15. The best is yet to come.

22. My spiritual journey with alcohol.26:07THE THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS IN THIS EPISODE ARE SOLELY MY OWN. If you feel you have addiction issues, please go seek help. You deserve it. Xx.Alcohol has slowly been creeping more and more into my day-to-day and I am officially over it. Gross little drug that when used properly is lovely. When used in excess, causes hurt, shame, sickness, broken families, embarrassment and guilt. And that’s on a good day!Listen, I am ALL IN for celebrating life but what has happened slowly but surely in my life is that every day drinking has become completely and totally normalized…. now THAT is no bueno for me because I don’t like the way I FEEL.Perhaps balance is possible? Maybe it isn’t. Only way to know is to look at it and talk about it. Without shame. Maybe you can relate? HOST CONTACT INFORMATION: Website www.moremosstothepeople.comInstagram AsaNilssonSwedenYouTube @AsaNilsson IN THIS EPISODE I TALK ABOUT:Åsa, why are you obsessing about this topic? I lived in the US from the age of 5 to 43. Early in my teens I started drinking alcohol. Age 13 I quit drinking alcohol only to take it back up again at 30 Didn't drink but smoked cigarettes to beat the band (drug of choice) throughout high school and college.Uptight, controlled, controlling, judgmental all those years. At 30 I started slowly introducing alcohol back into my body and life. Drinking in the US was an ant issue because “everyone did it”.I thought this was normal. Until I was shown something else. Sweden, zero tolerance for drinking and driving. Which I love. The amount of mental energy that alcohol now takes in my life is exhausting. Wake up in the middle of the night, brain off and running.When I went to my 50 year health control check up, how she reacted.Antidepressants + anti inflammatory medicines and alcohol. How does that work? What do I do if I don’t drink? Had to look back to when I quit smoking. How did I do that? Had to find a mentor.“I was a derelict of a child”. Side note: I do NOT blame my parents. One of my best friends who considers herself an alcoholic never wakes up in a fog, never wakes up with guilty feelings. I want to feel like that!! She’s my hero! Asking myself … how do I FEEL? Blindly drinking on a Tuesday night. No consciousness around it, just doing it out of habit. “Help me see, God, what I can not see”. Went to the skin doctor to get some help with the eczema around my eyes. TRUE STORY! No alcohol for 9 weeks. So, yeah, will I stop breathing if I take a glass of wine? Seriously?!Time to wake up, Åsa. Look at YOURSELF and your daily habits and determine for yourself… do they make you feel good? Look for the BALANCE in life.MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Jade Paunovich, Good Morning Sunshine cup.

20. Why would a young woman need to hold on to her dreams like they were her life jacket?30:42Guest: Bella MillerSummary of Episode: Bella already has a lifetime of experience in her toolbox. She teaches yoga, reiki, meditation, works full time in strategy management, is a published author, and, oh, by the way, did I mention she is 24? Put on your OLD PERSON FACE now … “Young people today… they are so entitled.. they are so used to getting everything they want, they have always been told they can have everything.” Queue eye roll. “Are these the people that are going to be running our country when we get into retirement age?!?!”If Bella Miller is any indication as to the complexity and genuineness of the young people's minds today, then I say we are going to be in safe hands. How can we encourage deeper discussions in order to understand ONE ANOTHER more? The disparity of the ages doesn’t have to be what separates us… it can be what binds us. Opening up the lines of communication with the younger generation will only serve to help us all. And man! These kids are smart! Much smarter than I ever was. They have the world at their fingertips, so what responsibilities come with that? Let’s let Bella speak. I believe her. You will too.

(The ebook will likely be the more accessible format for those outside the US).TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:What Bella learned with a 5 month stint in Australia when she was 18. Bella wrote a poem titled, "How can I be only 22 and feel this tired?" PREACH!Last year when her book was published, she felt she could finally slow down since she had the go-go-go pace since the age of 15.After graduating school and starting to work, Bella had no designated next milestones for the first time. How did that make her feel? Allowing herself just to be and not have to produce something. Has felt the pressure to do and be, finding a significant other, having an awesome job, to move.Bella’s life at 15, hit rock bottom. Depression. Went to bed and didn’t want to get up in the morning. Didn’t want to live. Trial and error for 8 years.“My dreams became my life jacket. What can help me dream and invite love into my heart and have hope in myself?” Pressures on young people today. “Not being enough is my biggest anxiety”. Bella recommends how we as elders can support the younger generations better: BELIEVE in them when they ask for support and want to share their dreams, wishes and wants. Offer a “Yes, I believe you. That makes so much sense. It's not going to be easy but how can I help you?”

18. What lie has to die for a truth to be born?25:40Host: Åsa Nilsson Title of Episode: What lie has to die for a truth to be born? Summary of Episode: What if the work of self realization never stops? What if you think you have ‘this down’ only to find your truth is leaking out someplace else? Our truths always come out … either intentionally or unintentionally. Listen in while I share what I have now discovered about my own people pleasing ways and how it's rearing its head in my podcasting. I promise. I will keep revealing my truths to you so that you KNOW you are not alone. None of us are. We grow together and this movement is for all of us. Host Contact Information:www.moremosstothepeople.comTAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE: Thank you for listening and being along on this movement/ journey with me. Here I am… people pleasing, showing all signs of codependency, back bending, self abandoning… AGAIN! I thought I was done with that! HA!Time to re-read ‘Boundary Boss’! My codependency has re-surfaced in another way now, my podcasting. You need my help? Magical words to me. Me looking at the time and worrying about you, the listener, not having the time to listen in on a long episode so I push along and think I know what your needs are when I have absolutely NO IDEA what your needs are. Only YOU do. The behaviour pattern of co-dependency. “Our family, like many families, was a perfect storm of covert communication and emotional dysfunction. My parents both came from families that avoided open discussions about anything painful or problematic. And there’s the heart of the matter: ineffective communications skills lead to weak or disordered boundary skills.” - Terri Cole, Boundary Boss, pg. 17. I grew up and still am the peacemaker. Over compensated for the lack of effective communication the only way I knew how, by distracting and deflecting the problems. “My cracks are being revealed to me”. “I therapized myself.”“ This podcast is helping me to heal”. How to feel and become free? What am I willing to give up in order to be free? I don’t have the answers. Nope, I sure don’t. What do you KEEP saying you’re going to do, ‘one day’. That day is now. Speak the truth. “If I have a truth, will I dare to share it?” Only you can answer that… as much as I’d like to answer it FOR you (haha) but I truly do want you to discover that for yourself. Then share it.Mentioned in this episode:Boundary Boss, Terri Cole. https://boundarybossbook.com/Contact Information for Komeil Asli, Podcast Production Manager:Komeil Asli Freelance UI/UX Designer + front end Developer. email@example.com

The digit sum of just the day. Ex. My birthday is the 17th of July. So I add 1 + 7 = 8. This is my First Base Number. If your birthday is 5 or 9 then you use that number since it is already a single digit.Your Second Base Number is the digit sum of the YEAR you are born. Ex.My birth year is 1967. So I add 1 + 9 + 6 + 7 = 23. Reducing it to a single digit sum 2+3 = 5. So my second base number is 5. Get it?-All the systems connect to the core truth of you.-Novalee tests new systems all the time to see how they correspond with Numerology and her lived experience. Everything comes back to Numerology and numbers, even Feng Shui.-Tarot is the tool that has been around the longest. Make sure you check the traditional meanings of the cards since some of them have changed over time. -Name vibrations and name changes. -Novalee’s story about how she decided to change her name through a Numerologist. “I changed my name and it changed my life”. - “Spirituality should validate not alienate”. -Legacy she wants to leave behind.

15. What I have learned after *just* 5 months as a Podcaster37:46Photo: November 11, 2022. The day we launched ‘More Moss to the People’ the website and the podcast. Pictured: Arian Parsi, Åsa Nilsson and Komeil Asli Host Name: Åsa NilssonTitle of Episode: What I have learned after *just* 5 months as a PodcasterSummary of Episode: After 5 months and 1000 ‘official’ downloads of the podcast, I have created a Signature System for every single episode (with the help of Komeil, of course)! This helps with the organization of all of the steps and keeps me on track with being able to deliver a product to the market that is seamless and easy to enjoy. Perhaps there is a place in your life where you can apply these tips or to see a possibility/dream from another perspective? “Based on how your life is right now, what is predictable about the course you are on?” Think about it. You don’t want to be predictable, do you? Nahhhh. Host Contact Information: Åsa NilssonInstagram: AsaNilssonSwedenYouTube: @AsaNilssonWebsite: www.moremosstothepeople.com TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:Based on your life right now, what is predictable about the course you are on? Are you waiting for a miracle or are you ready to create one?The universe wants to help us but WE have to help us. 5 months ago I started the podcast, over 1000 downloads and I couldn’t have done it alone. Thanks to Komeil Asli!! Why am I so comfortable in front of a camera? Well, it started 50 years ago… Looking at myself. Understanding what I need. Slowing myself down. Manage my own breath, actions and reactions. Sharing our tales of woes. We are not alone.50% of my listeners are in the US, 27% are in Sweden, the other 23% are in 26 other countries. WOW! Amazing to be able to reach people all over the world. Even though I have never had a podcast before I HAVE run a business for 6 years and have been working in businesses since I was 20. I have now created a Signature System for my podcast.The time to build relationships is NOW, not when you need someone. Start connecting with other people on social media that you admire, connect with them, reach out, respond to their posts, engage with them, introduce yourself. Help them, share their stuff with your market (and ALWAYS only do this with integrity, never to get something in return). Listen in for my step by step of what I do for every podcast episode. Now that I have enough episodes under my belt, I now have a rhythm to how this works. Of course with the help of the angel Komeil Asli. I am not as interested in the number of downloads as I am about the ENGAGEMENT of the listeners. Some thoughts of things I would still like to implement in the podcast in the future (and I need help doing this). Remember, we don’t have to do this all alone!! (snippet videos, batching videos, adding an advertiser in the future that is aligned with my values). My favourite question I get, *How do you earn money?* I don’t, this COSTS me money. This is an investment in my movement and future. Final tip. Get your legs under you. Create consistency. Your audience (and potential backers) need to know they can count on you to show up every week, month, whatever so they know YOU are in it for the long haul, not just till you get bored. Get your bearings. Collaboration of it all. How can you apply these lessons in your life right now?

ASK them for help.Akashic Records, what are they?Candice’s business was revealed. To amplify other people's businesses. We make 35,000 decisions a day, instead of staying stuck in decision making paralysis, the Akashic Records can help with the highest probability of a decision.
