Today we discuss channeling the warrior within us, reclaiming our inner magic, and healing ancestral patterns that may be holding us back.
My first guest, Summer Watson, is a British classical crossover artist that’s on a mission to inspire as well as entertain, with music that’s infused with the same positive message she embodies, “Go for your dreams and never give up!” She joins me today to discuss how we can rise from the ashes and conquer and prosper through pain and the challenges that confront us in life by channeling the warrior within each and every one of us.
My second guest, Vanessa Codorniu, is an acclaimed international intuition teacher, clinical hypnotherapist, and business mentor who has hosted more than 10,000 intuitive sessions in the US and Latin America in her 27 years of service. She joins me today to discuss how hypnosis and reiki support trauma, stress, and anxiety during these uncertain times, how Latinx and BIPOC folks have been affected differently during the pandemic, and what’s happening in these communities in terms of the rising of new healers and leaders in the wellness industry.

“When things become as horrendous as we think they can possibly be, it’s a time for us to go inward. This time where we’re having to wear masks, where we’re having to stay indoors, where we’re not able to see friends and family as much, where we’re working from home… It’s a time for us to slow down, a time for us to reflect, and a time to go deep within to really assess our lives.” – Summer Watson
A big voice with an even bigger heart, soprano Summer Watson is a singer on a mission to inspire as well as entertain. Having beaten stage 4 breast cancer and survived a deadly train crash, the chart-topping international vocalist knows all too well about the challenges that confront us in life.
Summer’s music is infused with the same positive message she embodies: “Go for your dreams and never give up!” Understanding the importance of determination and the healing power of music, Summer’s 2020 EP is the latest triumph in a career that has taken the beautiful Los Angeles-based Brit to the world’s biggest concert stages. Her newly released song Break The Silence references how one conquers and prospers through pain by channeling the warrior within each and every one of us.
Wowing the world with her incredible voice, Summer has shared stages with the likes of Michael Bolton, David Tutera, Chris Botti, and David Foster. She has performed for celebrities and royalty worldwide in such locales as Buckingham Palace, Jordan, Dubai, and China. Most of her acclaimed live performances have been in support of charities and causes she supports – from human rights to cancer research – as the inspirational warrior raises funds while lifting spirits.
In recent years, Summer has combined performance with mentoring young talent, not only by coaching the next generation of great singers but also by writing, producing, and recording their music. She has also been in huge demand for performing on film soundtracks, modeling at fashion shows, and collaborating with music industry greats.
Having graduated from London’s prestigious Royal College of Music, Summer became the first classical artist signed to a $1M contract with Sony Music. Her debut album, SUMMER, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, soared to number one on the US iTunes classical charts.
Hers is a singing voice so magical, and a story so special, that everyone who encounters Summer Watson is left open-mouthed in admiration while being inspired by the beauty and possibilities of life.
“You have to trust the light and look inward and really follow that pathway to find that gladiator warrior within yourself. No one can do that for you. When we’ve been faced with so many difficulties and traumas, we either just collapse, or we have to make a really strong decision for ourselves and fight for our lives because we’re meant to be happy.” – Summer Watson

“Reclaim your inner magic. Allow yourself to disengage from this uber productivity and from the pressure to be something that you’re not. When we release all that we’re not, when we release the stories we’ve been told and all of the limitations, we find that we’re just so much more than we could have ever known. I invite you all to love yourselves even more deeply and to give yourselves the patience and the compassion that each and every one of us truly deserves.”
“We only use about 15% of our brain, so we have so many resources, including our spirit and our mind, that when we are able to relax our bodies, when we are able to tap into hypnosis, we can find that place of peace within us no matter what’s going on outside. We can learn to hone our confidence and we can heal some of the inherited mindsets and stories and patterns that we’ve inherited knowingly or unknowingly from our families, our society, and our communities.” – Vanessa Codorniu
