Sometimes the most powerful tools of transformation are the ones we use every day without thinking even about them.

Conversation and story allow us to create our world, communicate and connect with others to share what we see. My guest in this podcast is Nikki O’Brien, and we explore the magic of both in a playful conversation abundant with embedded stories and fresh perspectives.

Our intention for this conversation is to experience aha movements and new perspectives. Nikki tells the story of her gift for drawing out moments of transformation in conversation, and then using them to help women plug into their power through the launch of their soul’s message and podcast. 

Together, we tell a spontaneous story about a character called “Ebony,” whose story reflects Nikki’s own internal journey and offers guidance for her next level of growth.

Afterward, Nikki reflected on the experience. “I almost thought this was going to be a therapy session, but it was better!” It’s not the first time I’ve been accused of being a therapist. 🙂

Learn about the art of intuitive coaching conversation and storytelling in this insightful and lively podcast episode.
