In This Episode
In this episode of the Get Loved Up Podcast, Koya Webb welcomes Kimberly Snyder, a spiritual guide and meditation teacher, nutritionist and holistic wellness expert. Kimberly is the host of the top-rated Feel Good podcast and founder of Solluna®. She is the 3-time New York Times bestselling author of 5 previous books, and is due to publish her next book You Are More Than You Think You Are: Practical Enlightenment for Everyday Life. Kimberly shares the goal of her new book which is to teach readers how to connect with their true selves. She provides many practical ways people can access their true selves, from daily introspection and meditation, to managing the voice that always compares yourself to others. She talks about true beauty as a person’s degree to which they are connected to their true selves. Though there are many external sources that try to make you believe otherwise, true beauty radiates from within and is not external.
“Enlightenment is about looking past all the things, the beliefs that we’ve integrated, ingrained as truth without even examining and realizing that there’s a bigger part of who we are, the true self. There’s a much bigger part.” – Kimberly Snyder
