In bed with:

I go deep with intriguing humans, artists, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders every second Sunday ( From June 2 ). My guest & I have a duty to drop the facade & reveal our true self by having deep, powerful and completely vulnerable discussions that aim to guide, inspire and motivate YOU.  

In Bed with : Jules Sebastian

JULES SEBASTIAN | Stylist, Host, Founder of The Sebastian Foundation

As a presenter, stylist, public speaker and philanthropist, Jules Sebastian has been exposed to all sides of the entertainment industry. In this episode of In Bed With: , Jules sheds some light on the dark side of social media and how constantly comparing our lives to the highlight reels of others can trigger our insecurities. Jules unpacks her own experiences with ageing in a culture that is obsessed with youth, and through accepting that ageing is a privilege not a burden, she has come to feel more content in her own skin now than ever before.

Together we discuss our shared experience of working with an esoteric energy healer to overcome stress and negative thought patterns, and the important role that therapy plays in their mental wellbeing. They explore the feeling of failure and learning to let go of the need for perfection. Jules also explains how she practices being fully present in her most important role as a mum.

RJ says:

Great chat! I found the talk about how we segregate roles fascinating. I think that maybe society puts too much stock in what we see as a person’s job and think of them as being mainly that role. That is probably why leaving that to do something else…like raising a family is seen as a “pause”.

Your Healer that you both speak about sounds like they would make an interesting guest on a future episode!

Oh…loved your chat on The Roving Mic podcast as well!

This episode’s newsletter (or love letter, I think you call them) was amazing. So real and honest and beautiful. I really do look forward to reading them before watching the latest episode. The thoughts about rejection got me considering some things. It brought to mind a rejection from when I was rather young, the first one I really can remember. Did that set a pattern in my mind? I don’t know!

    Carissa Walford says:

    Exactly, it’s tough to NOT see your identity in a job because we put so much energy and attach ourselves to the outcomes / successes of the roles we play in the work force. Spirituality was how I was able to find peace and utter contentment in who I am as me .. without any labels or skill set attached to my name! Makes a big difference when you can understand that we aren’t what we do.

    Writing those personal letters have been a challenge for me to dig deeper, reveal more of my feeling honestly and openly. It’s so rewarding to know my experiences are connecting with you. 🙏🏻

    When you can bring awareness to a moment like that in your childhood, that’s what will give you some clarity around how you operate in your adult life. It makes sense that our childhood experiences and traumas are a big reason why we go into protection mode. Well done for recognising that! Xx love chatting to you hear xx

      RJ says:

      I enjoy our conversations in the comments too. I also like reading through other people’s comments and seeing what resonated with them. There are some pretty cool and thoughtful people here!

Mia Lake says:

This was a gorgeous piece to start my day with. I just come back from my honeymoon, and was procrastinating getting ready for first day of work. I am now so pumped to go and make the most of the day xxx

    Carissa Walford says:

    Congratulations! You looked beautiful on your special day! Had a little look on Instagram !! Amazing to hear. Isn’t it nice to know that we’re all just trying to navigate our way through this incredible life together and we can learn from each other’s perspectives. Bloody happy your day was a hoot my love xxx

Katrina Ginnivan says:

Absolutely loved this! Jules and Carissa you are both just such gorgeous souls! The chats about energy shifting and segmenting from mum, to career lady, really resonated with me!

Katrina.

    Carissa Walford says:

    Lovely to hear from you. In awe of all mums and the energy you give! Be kind to yourself and know you don’t have to do it all. 💖

Petra says:

Thank you for this episode. This conversation resonated with me on so many different levels

My marriage recently broke down, and whilst he and I are still good friends and there is no bitterness between us, it is still incredibly hard and sad. One day I am ok and the other I am not. I find it is the conversations I am having with myself that make me feel like a failure. This episode opened my eyes to how much I do this! Viewing Instagram as an online magazine is also an excellent way to think about it. And I will definitely try this next time.

Thank you for having this conversation so openly. This has given me strength today!
