How To (Not) Kill Your Spouse During Quarantine - Our 10-Year Anniversary Episode!
This week’s episode is a special one as Rachel has on the ultimate guest, her hilarious and down to earth husband, Dennis Schoneveld! Rachel and Dennis are recording from Aruba on their 10th wedding anniversary as they have found themselves at home, like the rest of us.
Tune in as they discuss everything a husband and wife would discuss during this time of isolation, from how they reacted to Luna getting tested for the virus to Dennis’ opinion on the amount of rice they currently have in the cupboard. Ultimately, as they work to protect their team and business during this challenging time, Rachel and Dennis share how to be of service to those in need.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Rachel and Dennis episode if they didn’t address your Instagram questions. Find out if they will have another baby, if they use any form of THC to calm down, and if Dennis thinks of himself as ‘clingy’. Tune in for a family quarantine episode not to be missed - funny, heartfelt, honest, and real.
A Social Isolation Survival Guide
Tune in today as Rachel shares more than ten of her best tips to bring normalcy to your day, to move stagnant energy, and to clear your mind of repetitive thoughts so you can get through this period of isolation feeling whole. From doing yoga to making your bed, these small, day-to-day practices can keep you healthy and grounded in a time filled with so much uncertainty and loss of structure.
The key to getting through this time is found in accepting the dualities of life; work and rest, moderation and excess, and reality and divine intervention. On one hand, Rachel expresses the need to acknowledge what is happening, honor the human suffering taking place, and not bypass the emotions that rise within us - only then can we be of service to the world. On the other hand, we need to pray, lean into trust, and put our faith in that intuitive power within us all that guides us on our path (as Rachel sees for herself through her garden, solar panels, online platform and even her burnout!).
On days where you feel fragile and vulnerable, this podcast will remind you that together we are strong. You are not alone. We are all walking this journey together, and we can get through it together by taking good care of ourselves.
Testing for COVID-19, Working Through Fear and Making Sense of a Global Pandemic
As coronavirus has the entire world in its grip, this global energy of fear has left many of us in a place of uncertainty. Will there be a resource shortage? Why isn’t everyone self-isolating? And what if the most unlikely happens, as it seems to be happening every day? In times of such uncertainty, many of us are feeling emotions we have never felt before – and many past traumas may find themselves resurfacing.
In this week’s episode, Rachel shares the series of events that brought the small island of Aruba, and her own family, from indifference about the coronavirus to complete pandemonium. Living on a desert island that has three grocery stores dependent on imports, and one hospital with four ventilators, Rachel found herself spiraling into familiar feelings of lack, grasping for control and fearing the unknown. It all cumulated into one of the hardest days of Rachel’s life – when her daughter experienced her first trauma after being called to be tested for the virus by the Aruban government.
As this virus creates harder days for us all, and especially the most vulnerable, we have to do what we can to find a balance between indifference and pandemonium, between severity and humanity, and between holding on and letting go. The answer can be found in creating community wherever we can, in feeling our feelings and holding space for others to feel theirs, and in rooting ourselves in knowing that some days may be harder than others – but we can take it one day at a time.

Healing Childhood Wounds Through Parenthood
How can you know yourself deeply if you’ve never touched the depths of your anger or reached the height of your joy? We have to feel our emotions to process them in a healthy way – and our ability to do that is often impacted by how our parents led us through sensitive moments as children. But what if our parents left us with empty spaces in our hearts? A beautiful opportunity for healing presents itself when we cross the threshold into parenthood. What if by parenting our children, we can parent ourselves?
In today’s episode, Rachel is home after a trip to Costa Rica and trying to get her daughter back on her normal schedule. The result is an epic tantrum that lasts hours and emotionally drains Rachel and her husband. When it is all over, Rachel is left staring at the wall and wondering what it all means. Why do toddlers have meltdowns? Is there a purpose to it all? How can we be there for our children in the most challenging moments?
If you’re a parent, then you know there is no easy way out when your child is having a major emotional tantrum. All you can do is love them, be there for them, and put your patience to the test. As you do that – you may just find you are holding your own inner child as well. By supporting them you are giving yourself the support you didn’t get when you were growing up. Loving them means you are healing old wounds and filling empty spaces in your own heart.
Tune in to today’s episode to find healing in the hard moments and safety in your own unconditional love.
