Welcome to Spiritual AF Sundays, the podcast that explores the spiritual side of everything! Join your host, Jessica Karels (aka The Mystic Geek), a witch with 20+ years of experience in both the corporate and magical worlds, as we dive into a wide range of topics that go beyond the surface-level talking discussed by pundits and on social media. Queer, polyamorous, and neurodivergent - Jessica is no stranger to challenging the status quo. Designed for the slightly geeky and curious souls who seek a deeper understanding, Spiritual AF Sundays invites you to join our exploration of spirituality, religion, and politics. We go beyond the shallow back-and-forth on social media and provide thought-provoking insights that inspire personal growth and transformation. In each episode, we challenge societal norms and assumptions, tackle hot-button topics like politics and artificial intelligence, and delve into subjects like magic and witchcraft, self-improvement, and more. We believe that spirituality and real-world issues are intertwined, and are not afraid to ask the difficult questions about how one affects the other. With weekly episodes, each around 30 minutes, we bring you engaging discussions and interviews with guests from diverse backgrounds. Whether you’re a seasoned spiritual seeker or just starting your journey, this podcast offers a fresh perspective and invites you to expand your horizons. Join us on this transformative journey, and don’t forget to leave a review to let us know your thoughts. Let’s dive deep into the spiritual realms and challenge the status quo.

Instagram-perfect is no longer just for fashion models. Whenever we turn to social media we see spiritual healers with curated feeds talking about how they have their stuff together. At the same time, we see others going to cringey lengths to be emotionally vulnerable, not knowing the fine line between authenticity showcasing something that may be better off on reality TV. If that's not enough, we keep getting messaging that we need to heal ourselves, often by facing our darkest issues head-on.
In this episode of Spiritual AF Sundays, we're bringing on Author, Empathic Mentor, and Master Trainer for EFT International Jennifer Moore to explore how hustling and working on the biggest, messiest emotional issues may not be the best route to healing ourselves. We'll also discuss how social media encourages performative acts of vulnerability and how new healers face unique challenges when trying to understand their own limits. Finally, we'll talk about the need to focus on our own healing process in addition to helping others, as well as introduce listeners to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
