113. Meditation for Job Hunters -With Ilana Kosakiewicz (Rebroadcast).


It is essential to take care of our overall well-being to do the best job we can and not burn out. Learning to find your balance between work and other important aspects of your life will help you reach your career goals.

So In the new year, whether you are going back to work or looking for a new job, it is vital to stick to a routine that incorporates taking care of your body and mind, as well as your career. This will help you stay grounded and enhance your health and wellness because nobody will be able to take care of you better than yourself.

Ilana Kosakiewicz is one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists,  yoga and meditation teachers. In this episode, We are rebroadcasting part of our interview with Ilana from an episode released earlier this year. In this extract, Ilana does a guided 10-minute meditation for us.  

If you are familiar with meditation, I’m sure you will love Ilana’s calm and experienced guidance. If you’re a newbie, give this a go, and notice how you feel just before and just after doing it. I bet you’ll be able to tell the difference.


If you want to listen to the entire conversation with Ilana about her career transitions and about health and wellbeing in the corporate world, I will put the link to the episode in the show notes for you. And I was also interviewed on Ilana’s podcast, The Energy Shift. I will also add the link to that episode in the show notes.

Now, get ready to relax and be guided by Ilana through 10-minute meditation.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

About our guest, Ilana Kosakiewicz:

Ilana Kosakiewicz is one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists, energy coaches, and yoga and meditation teachers. She is a wholefood lover, an entrepreneur with a past life spent working in the corporate world as a CPA accountant.

Ilana’s own health journey with chronic fatigue and auto-immune disease taught her that slowing down, finding moments of stillness, living in the now, and listening to your body’s inner wisdom and intuition are not just important – they are essential.

Ilana is passionate about teaching women to live in alignment with their innate cyclical energy, menstrual cycle, and the moon. She helps women shift their energy and take back their inner power and self-care rights by making themselves the number one priority.

Ilana also works with children (& some men) to assist in shifting their essence, energy, and zest to live authentic, content, and happy lives.

Originally from Gippsland, Australia, Ilana now lives in Bayside Melbourne and spends her days with her clients, teaching yoga and meditation, writing, dancing, cooking in her kitchen, and spending as much time at the beach as she can.
