The True North Collective Podcast


July 1, 2019

Welcome to the TRUE NORTH COLLECTIVE PODCAST: SEASON 2! With co-hosts Rachel Bellotti and Jenell Riesner, this is a gathering of un-sugar-coated conversations celebrating the untold stories of everyday people fearlessly finding and living their true north. 

In our own search to discover and live from  our TRUE NORTH, we have met so many interesting, courageous people from all walks of life, doing all sorts of amazing things to live life in their own unique way. Stories from all over the world. Stories with heart. Stories with grit. Stories with plot twists. Stories going untold - until now. This season, we continue to connect with and celebrate these untold stories of everyday people who are fearlessly living their true north and inspiring each of us to do the same.

Today, we chat with Joshua Robbins, a Kabbalistic Astrologer helping clients lead happier and more fulfilling lives. We dive into what it means to be a Kabbalistic Astrologer, how to discern when visiting a reader or healer, when to know if you are operating from your ego or your light/soul, and we play with the idea that we can change the world by changing our conscious reality - ultimately learning how to shine our light more often on all things and beings to illuminate more light in the world.

*note: this episode includes explicit language appropriate for those ages 16+





  1. Consciousness creates your reality. Shifting how you think and how you speak will change what you see, what you experience, and transform the seed or the DNA of your reality.
  2. In Kabbalah we are invited to consider that the soul comes here into a human body to manifest ALL the light that we have right here, right now. We are called to take all the light that’s within us, rooted in authenticity and regardless of what anyone else thinks, and shine all that light out into the world, in service of the world. And by shining that light on all beings and aspects of the world no matter what they are, we illuminate more and more light in others and in the world.  
  3. We all have many thoughts and inner urges or voices guiding us, yet how do we know which to choose to listen to? The voice that tells you to share and shine your light - the voice that asserts boundaries that respect our own light and the light in others - this  is the voice of your soul. The voice that tells you to fight back or run away - to hurt others or hurt self to make another feel better - this is the voice of the ego and creates more chaos. The spiritual journey allows you to practice turning down the ego and turning up the voice of love,  your light, or your soul. And remembering that there is also light in the fall into ego. Sometimes in order to learn when we are in ego, we have to experience it, so when it happens, allow it to happen and learn and grow and keep practicing so you can be wiser for next time.
