14 years ago I decided not to kill myself.
11 years ago I was left with 350 k worth of bad debt and ruined credit.
9 years ago I went into Consumer Proposal and began to clean up the mess.
7 years ago I welcomed my beautiful daughter into the world.
5 years ago I left my marriage to fall in love with myself.
3 years ago I allowed myself to fully heal and reconnect with my feminine;
2 years ago I rebuilt my life, moved into my own tiny home and found my Lifetime Love.
Last year, I started my podcast and welcomed my baby boy earth side."

She has learned the power of saying no and speaks openly about subtle abuse as it occurs in relationships - personally and professionally. Knowing that peace, freedom and integrity start inside, Candice is an advocate for knowing your own truth and speaking it clearly and powerfully - at home, at work and to yourself.

After a narcissistic partner cheated on her with multiple women, left her (and the country!) with over 350 thousand dollars worth of bad debt, Candice was forced to rebuild her life, her credit and, most importantly, her trust in herself. The journey was not without its impact and Candice shares powerfully about dealing with anxiety, shame and learning to let go. Now, as a self proclaimed Essentialist, she’s leading a big life while living in a tiny home (324 sq ft), with her Love, 2 kids, 2 dogs and 1 cat.

When grief rocked her world in 2020, Candice knew it was time to finally do the deeper healing work she had been putting off and change her negative patterns for good. Emerging from this place, Candice now embraces her wild, fierce and receptive feminine nature. The journey to be and embrace all the parts of herself has led her to the place to start her wildly successful Create the Ripple Podcast; Trust the Niggle and Tell the Truth - where she features guests who are living in their truth and integrity.

    Healing Grief and Trauma from Sexual Assault with Candice Smiley (Grief and Happiness with Emily Thiroux Threatt)

    Have you or someone you know experienced sexual assault? Among the many emotions that healing from a sexual assault can bring up, is grief. 
     
    In this fourteenth episode together, I am so excited to be joined by Candice Smiley. Candice is a blogger, social marketer, podcaster, mother, and a survivor of sexual assault. Twenty years ago, Candice’s life was forever changed when she survived a sexual assault from her boyfriend. Since then, Candice has been on a journey of healing and  acceptance. Through her work as a blogger, podcaster, speaker, and as a mother, Candice is determined to create a conversation around narcissistic partners, sexual assault, balancing feminine and masculine energies, setting boundaries, and recovering from grief.   
     
    Throughout this episode, Candice tells her story of being sexually assaulted and how she has learned to process the grief and trauma caused by that event. She talks about finding therapy through writing, what happened when she stopped running from her emotions, how she creates boundaries within her life, and the patterns she has broken to turn a corner in her life. I resonate so much with Candice’s story and I am grateful for her vulnerability in sharing her story. 
     
    Tune in and listen to the fourteenth episode of Grief and Happiness, and join me in learning how Candice has navigated the grief caused by sexual assault.

Great host, authentic conversations

Candace is a wonderful host who is so in her truth—her vulnerability and authenticity are legit and so is she. I love the conversations she’s having and the good she’s contributing to the world through this show. Recommend highly.

BOSS WITCHES ,

Real Talk!

I had such a great time connecting with Candice during our time on episode 49! I have listened to her podcast for some time and I always appreciate her authenticity and that of those she interviews!
It felt like two girlfriends having a deeply spiritual conversation about “all the things”. Highly recommend!!
