THE GODDESS ATTAINABLE PODCAST
Hello, I’m Libby Saylor and this is The Goddess Attainable Podcast. This podcast is essentially my spoken journal, where I talk about pretty much anything I want. I share about my life, love and relationships, spirituality and healing, art and inspiration, and anything else that tickles my fancy, all remaining under the umbrella of female empowerment, which is kinda my thing. And I’mma keep it real and raw. So, I hope you’ll be my witness for this journey, and I’ll try to keep you entertained!

In this podcast episode, I contemplate the profound magic and divine timing (some might call it luck) involved in meeting a love partner. I reflect on how most people only have a few actual love partners in their entire lifetime. Therefore, the process of finding a love partnership during a period of single-ness requires patience and trust. I also reflect upon both of my exes, and even though these partnerships did not work out, I still view them as sacred and divine. Finding a love partner doesn’t just happen, and it’s perfectly okay to take your time with this search.
In this podcast episode I discuss seven things that happen when we engage in sex, art-making, and entering into a relationship with another. All of these things require an element of surrender, as well as deliberate action, and so much more. And when these three processes are complete, we are never quite the same. It’s actually quite a beautiful way to make peace with loss, completions, and endings. And it’s an even better way to remain hopeful about continuing forward with these three beautiful acts of love.
I treat this podcast episode as a space of semi-guilty confession, and admit to the things I reach for when I’m feeling empty and depleted. I think we all feel empty at times, and sometimes it’s easier to reach for something soothing than it is to just sit with the uncomfortable feelings. But right now I’m trying to do better. This episode is an invitation to join me in the human admittance of this very normal behavior, and to also perhaps try to just sit a bit longer in the discomfort, in order to stretch those spiritual muscles. It’s a practice, and we’re not seeking perfection here!
In this episode I share about my most recent dating disappointment, and how it compelled me to enter into cocooning mode after several days of resisting facing my feelings. Seriously, when is the last time you cocooned? Sad emotions, and even seemingly minor disappointments, setbacks, conflicts, and other life issues take a lot out of us. And many of us go months, if not years, without stopping to cocoon and just feel our feelings, and tend to ourselves. How many of you are resisting it too?
In this podcast episode, I share about my experience with recently committing a bit deeper to my meditation practice. I really only meditate for 6 minutes every evening! And how this devotion has been helping with my fear and anxiety, as well as handling disappointments in life that may have otherwise sent me spiraling.
In this podcast episode, I discuss how to honor and bring more goddess awareness to the very real male wounds of toxic masculinity, while at the same time, maintain our own goddess power as females. It’s an immensely tricky task, and having conversations about these very intricate dynamics is the first step towards healing. I also discuss double-standards when it comes to attraction, from both sides of the coin. And I talk about finding the balance between maintaining our healthy goddess anger in terms of empowerment, while still leading with compassion.
“The adventurous boy, keen on exploring the new and unknown, gets subdued and this causes deep pain, because the boy essentially holds the key to the man’s soul, his individuality. Being disconnected from your true inspiration causes sadness, anger, and eventually depression and aggression.” -by Pamela Kribbe and Gerrit Gielen
In this podcast episode, I share a bit about the grieving process over my recent breakup, and where I am at now, after all is said and done. And I expand upon a new way of being single, that entails avoiding the angst, and drama, and desperate longing, that often accompanied my search for love in the past. And how I’m excited by a new approach to finding love that doesn’t involve so much struggle. I also share about how I’m coming to terms with the fact that I really do need to find a way to get to a place of complete happiness, with or without a partner. And how I must learn new ways of living life as a single person, and letting go of such intense focus on finding someone. Being single and being miserable must no longer be mutually exclusive!!
In this podcast episode, I talk about some touchy subjects regarding the judgements and pressures that our patriarchal society places on single women in particular. Marriage and children are beautiful things that I support and desire. And yet, at the same time, if women are unmarried and/or without children, they often receive deeply insidious societal messages that tell them they are somehow less than. And therefore, how dare they have the audacity to be happy as single women?! I also expand upon some of the problems with marriage in a patriarchal society. And mention the three patriarchal ideals of entitlement, childishness, and laziness, and how single women in particular are a threat to these ideals. I hope this episode inspires those who are feeling ashamed of their single status to say NO to these messages. And instead, have the audacity to be happy, regardless of your relationship status.
In this podcast episode, I share with you my history of obsessively searching for love, beginning at the age of 5 years old. And how my recent breakup has shaped a new way of approaching love. For this time around, I would like to take my time, set deliberate intentions, and make sure my motivations for finding a man to share my life with, are coming from a goddess-level place, and not from a place of needy desperation. I share with you some ideas I have for preparing to get out there into the dating world, and expand upon my new and next-level mindset for finding love.
In this episode, I share honestly about my false confidence and buried feelings of self-hate, and expand upon my recent experience with inner child work. I also get really honest about my true feelings about my In this podcast episode, I share honestly about my false confidence and buried feelings of self-hate, and expand upon my recent experience with inner child work. I also get really honest about my true feelings about my ex, and how his anger towards me triggers my feelings of self-hate and low self-worth. And most importantly, I share with you the tools and resources that I have been using to sort through this muck, and how I have been finding new and improved ways to treat myself with more love, and more understanding. Something I think we can all use a bit more of, don’t you!?
In this podcast episode, I share a bit about how my control issues originated in childhood, and how those control issues have shaped the way I view my current love life, my single status, and my approach to finding new love. I was inspired by something Lindsay Mack shared in her beautiful podcast, Tarot For The Wild Soul. She essentially said that we have no control over finding our love partner. This blew my mind, and still does! Because for so many years, I really thought I could control everything, including my path to love. Finally, I share about new ideas and ways in which I’m attempting to reframe this controlling way of thinking, in order to open me up to greater love and happiness!
In this episode, I share a bit about how I’m trying to find a new way to manage my fears and stresses about money and other life things, in the wake of my recent and abrupt breakup. And I give details about a sort of miracle experience with a mop, that I had while I was communicating with The Goddesses. This episode is about making a choice to turn things over (to a power greater than myself, in whatever form that takes), when life is just too scary and overwhelming.
In this episode, I update you on my recent, shocking, abrupt, and heartbreaking breakup, and share the tools and crutches I’ve been using to cope with all of it. One way or another, I’m going to be okay, but I’m not there yet!!
In this episode, I fangirl over Deborah Roberts, mixed media artist living and working in Houston, Texas. This is not an interview with Deborah. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And I share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her!
I also share about my own personal experiences with mixed media art-making, as I am also a mixed-media artist (sort of). And I offer information about how to find, follow, and fangirl this incredibly talented, dedicated, and phenomenal artist.
Deborah Roberts’ work has been exhibited internationally across the US and Europe; and is included in collections at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, NYC, and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), among others. Her work has been published in Art in America, Vogue, New York Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and New York Times. Roberts received her MFA from Syracuse University, New York.
“My process combines found and manipulated images with hand drawn and painted details to create hybrid figures. These figures often take the form of young girls and increasingly Black boys, whose well-being and futures are equally threatened because of the double standard of boyhood and criminality that is projected on them at such a young age. The boys and girls who populate my work, while subject to societal pressures and projected images, are still unfixed in their identity. Each child has character and agency to find their own way amidst the complicated narratives of American, African American and art history.” -Deborah Roberts

In this episode, I fangirl over Sallie Krawcheck, Founder and CEO of Ellevest. This is not an interview with Sallie. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her!
“Sallie Krawcheck’s professional mission is to help women reach their financial and professional goals (or, put more bluntly, to get more money into the hands of women), thus enabling them to live better lives and unleashing a positive ripple effect for our families, our communities and our economy.” -Ellevate Network
From my experience, Sallie seems not only dedicated to helping women invest, plan, and save for healthy futures, but also educating women about money. And empowering women to handle their own finances, regardless of their relationship status, age, or gender.
In this episode, I also fangirl to the max about Ellevest, since I recently joined and am loving it! I share about my own personal experiences with money, investing, and finances. And I give lots of tips and advice about how to navigate the Ellevest platform. I love money. I love talking about it, saving it, counting it, keeping track of it, and having it!!

In this episode, I share with you a message from the goddess Gaia about taking a closer look at your own life to make sure you’re happy with the foundation of happiness that you are building. I explore various examples of what it looks like when your life owns you, and when you are taking OWNERSHIP of your life. These examples include issues regarding your dating life, your work life, saying no to things and forming healthy boundaries, and making time for yourself. I also suggest using lists and vision boards to get clear about your happiness quotient if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed thinking about it.

If you want to be a modern-day goddess, you need a set of goddess power tools to keep you on track. In this episode, I discuss my top 6 goddess power tools and share how they have helped me on my goddess path. These tools will help to continue to remind you of the goddess you truly are. And they are certain to help you get back on track when you’ve veered off the path of goddess-ness, as all goddesses do.
In this episode, I’m going to share with you an incredible exercise that I have used time and time again to heal my deep-seated, hard to get at, inner-child wounds. You don’t have to have come from a dysfunctional family, or have had a super dark childhood to have these kinds of wounds. If you’re human, you have feelings. And when you’re a child, your feelings are sensitive, vulnerable, and exposed. And sometimes, they get hurt. So, this topic truly applies to everyone. Again, as long as you’re a human being, you’re probably going to get something out of this!

This is a pretty straightforward tale about a staph infection on my ass. But this story also ties deeply into my history with fear and trauma. It’s all about the root chakra, baby. And my root chakra was freaking out when I first started dating. I believe this staph infection was simply a symptom of all of my dating and intimacy fears coming to the surface. And I needed to heal them in order to move forward successfully in my journey to finding love. This staph infection was an invitation to heal, but damn was it painful!

My twin sister and I use our Virgo critical minds to analyze our favorite pop culture topics. We discuss Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Britney, Janet Jackson, and Madonna.
