Self Care As A Spiritual Practice


“Mothers have an untapped spiritual power within us…qualities of connection, nurturing, intuition and a spiritual authority that comes from our ‘being’, not our ‘doing’.” – Suzi Lula

Suzi Lula is a much-sought-after Spiritual Counselor, Teacher, and Inspirational Speaker who is an expert in the field of human transformation.

Combining her innovative teachings over her 18 years in private practice, along with her masters degree training in spiritual psychology, Suzi is transforming the way people think about motherhood. 

Known as a visionary leader, Suzi challenges conventional wisdom that says mothers must sacrifice and martyr themselves to be good mothers and instead, guides them to the realizations that when they thrive, their children will flourish as well.

Her unique approach has led Suzi to be featured on The Today Show with Michael Bernard Beckwith on a piece highlighting Spirituality and the family. As well, alongside best-selling authors Dr. Shefali Tsabary (The Conscious Parent) and Neale Donald Walsch.

Suzi is redefining Motherhood as an Evolutionary Path, Limitless in it’s possibilities to change the very nature of our mothering experience and therefore raise an entire generation of happy, thriving individuals.

During the interview, Suzi addresses questions like:

Why do you think that, even when we know how important self care is, it is so difficult for mothers to commit to a self care practice?

For those mothers, whether working full time or a stay at home mom, who feel like they have zero time for themselves, do you have any suggestions to help them take a step back and find the space for Self-Care?

Why do  you think that most mothers believe that Self-Care is selfish?

Why is Self-Care so important for mothers?

How can self-care really transform a mother’s life and relationship with her children?

What are the results you experience when mothers really take care of themselves?

We dig into these questions and much, much more.

Suzi ends our conversation by sharing why she feels Self-Care is a Spiritual practice and a way of life.

Listen in and allow her to give you full permission to love, pamper, and care for yourself so your children can thrive too. <3

    Hi Sarah, Thank you for your patience on my reply! I am just relaunching now and have 3 new episodes up! Suzi Lula also has an incredible book called “The Motherhood Evolution” if you are wanting more of her yummy magic:)

  2. Just heard this one today! Its an eye opener.. thanks! No hope in the re-launch soon? I love this podcast.. really good and helpful.. helps me keep my sanity

  3. Hi Ana, thank you for your comment! And yes, I am just preparing to relaunch the podcast and would be honored to support you with your question.
    One thing I would offer right away is to consider that how we start each day can be everything. It doesn’t take a long time, even just 10-15 minutes of silence, aligning your intentions, deep breathing, stretching, naming what you are grateful for… whatever helps you to connect with your higher self and honor the moment. And it doesn’t have to look the same each day or be a fancy practice.
    Sometimes I wake and my body wants a specific Asana. Sometimes I sing a song and have a cup of tea while watching the sun rise. Find what feels good.
    If I give myself this time, when my daughter wakes I am so open and available to meet her where she is.
    And don’t underestimate the 5 minute bathroom breaks!!
    It is incredible what a couple minutes of breathing and a bit of essential oil can do to shift our state from frustration to calm. ❤️

  4. Thank you! I re-listened to this podcast today after having broken down to my husband last night. Yelling unnecessarily at my 4.5 year old, feeling anger at myself and not knowing how to deal with these emotions. I feel I am always half-way there! But I often seem to forget about self-care and the need to fill my cup. I would love to hear more about how mothers can work through their own emotions, while taking care of little ones. Do you think you could do a short series, of really practical steps on how to deal with our emotions? I think it would be tremendously helpful. Many thanks.

  5. What a wonderful message! I love the insights that you shared. I was particulary moved when Suzi shared that she told her son, “I’m having some big emotions right now.” I also believe we are a community and am so very thankful I had this oppourtunity to hear this podcast!

  6. I love that you listened while at the gym, Kelly!! Perfect! I also love where you say that you used to think that you needed a block of a couple of hours for self-care and now realize a few minutes can nourish our Spirits. When we practice this, little by little, over and over again, we create nourishing our Spirits as a way of life!

  7. What a great talk–thank you! I listened while at the gym (not with the recommended cup of tea) and it was a perfect combination today. My best, most connected days with my son and family are when I have consciously taken care of myself. And it is very much in the mindset. I used to think I needed a block of a couple of hours on my own to engage in self-care, and while hours would be amazing, ten minutes can do me a world of good. While Suzi focuses on mothers, I think her suggestions are important for any engaged parent.
