Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, we talk about our thoughts how far away we think something is, and how our thoughts, beliefs, and actions are keeping it further away. In this episode, we discuss:  1) Your actions will show up according to and be consistent with how far away you think “it is”.  If you tell yourself that something is far away, your energy, actions, and how you respond will be as if it is far away.  A lot can change quickly when your actions show up and match that. 2) I heard Ed Mylett say that most of us have a depth perception problem.  Because you think it is...

In this episode, I want to talk about blinders and how a lot in your life can change when you put your freaking blinders on.  Comparison is a very slippery slope, it will take you off your game, and block you from using your gifts.

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share a quick continuation of what changed in January of 2024 and how I decided to stop writing my gratitude and feel it.  Sounds woo-woo doesn’t it, yet it has been a huge shift for me and I knew I was being called to share it with you.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) Focusing on your gratitude is more than checking a box, doing the thing, and “saying you are committed to your personal growth.”  If you are only concerned with checking a box, then you are in the process of doing more and not experiencing it. 2) A tool we learn in NLP is...

Today we are speaking with the Author, Mentor, Coach, Survivor, and Thrivor, Michelle Shekhinah.  Michelle was married for many years and was a stay-at-home Mom for 2 children. In 2015, Michelle realized that her husband was addicted to drugs. At this time, she experienced financial, emotional, and sexual abuse from him, which turned into his sex trafficking. Michelle spent many nights crying on the floor, until one night she saved her life and ran for the door. Since then, she has been healing herself, with therapy and other techniques. She has become a strong Mom for her children, in addition to being an advocate and mentor for other women and teens who have suffered any form of trauma and abuse. Her story is compelling, heartbreaking, and yet full of hope and reconciliation.

In this episode, we dive into:

1) Michelle openly shares her vulnerable story, bringing so much awareness to trafficking, control,  how it escalated, how she found her way out, to finding the courage to share her story and move literally from the floor to the door. 

 

2) Michelle continues to move forward and be the best role model for her children and other women/teenagers who have experienced trauma as well.
