Reshma Thakkar talks Divine Self-Care with Elena Lipson {Audio Interview}


Reshma Thakkar Interview


When I met Reshma Thakkar I could feel her incredible grounded energy and her spiritual practice. During our conversation, which could have lasted for hours :)),  Reshma shared how important Self-Care & learning to listen to her intuition is to your life path and journey.

Reshma is featured in Oprah Winfrey’s new docu-series called Belief. The WAY she landed this amazing opportunity is a series of synchronicities that were triggered by Reshma’s own path of exploration.

Listen to our interview below:

Then make sure you check out Reshma’s new series called Belief Explorer Quest featuring amazing thought leaders such as Marianne Williamson, Danielle LaPorte, Lisa Nichols, Mastin Kipp and Don Miguel Ruiz.

One her bookstand: THRIVE by Arianna Huffington

Her current favorite daily mantra: “I am a ray of light”

About Reshma in her own words:

Most of us have an understanding of something spiritual.  Some of us call it God, Nature, Spirit, Energy, Source, Buddha, etc. And some of us don’t know whether to believe at all.  Here’s what I believe:  all of us want to love and be loved, we want to be happy, to have an appreciation of our lives and to have a deeper confidence that we are on the “right” path – our path.

My path to becoming a featured Explorer in Oprah’s film “Belief” was not something I ever thought could or would happen.  

3 years ago, I had a “normal” job, came from a “normal” family, and lived a “normal” life.  And I was grateful for it.  I was one of those – work by day, yoga by night, green juice-loving city girls.

However there was something inside that kept pulling at me.

One day I realized, there is no time like now to explore these questions more deeply.  For me, that looked like taking a sabbatical from as technical consultant and take a 3 month journey to my ethnic homeland:  India.  This was weirdly an easy decision – even though I worried about my bills, if I would still have a job when I returned, and who I would be after I did it.  I also decided to take the journey alone, which brought up other fears – as a single woman exploring the sights and sounds of my ancestral home – I wondered what could come up that I couldn’t plan for.  I spoke of my intentions (without really knowing how I was going to do it) casually to my yoga teacher one day.

Let’s just say that casual conversation turned into an opportunity to go on my Belief Explorer Quest, not knowing it would turn into one of Oprah’s next projects.

Now, I’m a speaker, the founder of Made with a Purpose (where we employ Indian women who create sustainable, fashionable bags) and one of the “Seekers” in Belief.

Interview Interviews SELF-CARE

    This was a fabulous interview – thanks Elena and Reshma! I agree that so much comes down to listening to our body. Having had similar ‘body breakdown’ experience myself, this is what I always come back to when things start feeling out of control. Isn’t it crazy that we need to learn this in adulthood? It’s so basic, but I spend so much time teaching the women I coach back from burnout how to do this (and re-learning myself!) because it’s so ridiculously important. P.S. Thrive was on my nightstand earlier this year and the O-Course is fantastic.

    Hi Catarina … YES!!! Our bodies always know the answer. If we give ourselves time to nourish, listen and trust it can truly change the way we live our lives.
