Embracing Change and Living Your Life’s Purpose with Shannon Algeo

“I trust the change unfolding in my life. Sometimes we must let go of something good to let in something better. The wheel of life is always turning and change is necessary — without it, we become complacent. Change is brewing. Loosen your grip and relax into it. As you’re guided to step more authentically into your power and purpose, something has to shift. Change must occur. Trust the change unfolding in your life.” — from The Moon Deck

This excerpt perfectly captures the theme of today’s episode: embracing change and letting go to truly live your life’s purpose. Through trauma and uncertainty, you become stronger on the other side. Trust the change unfolding in your life! On the other side of conflict and struggle is growth, transformation, and living life to your fullest.

Our guest today, Shannon Algeo, lives this idea every day as his life’s purpose. He’s a meditation teacher, a life coach, a motivational speaker, and runs the podcast, Soulfeed, with his co-host, Alex Kip. His work revolves around helping others to heal old patterns of trauma and negativity so they can powerfully show up in the world to live a life of power, presence, and purpose. In this podcast, we discuss many of these topics, his own personal journey, and the many powerful lessons we’ve all learned throughout our lives. We hope you’ll join us all today!
