    Leaving Without My Children, Janelle Metchewais

    Leaving Without My Children, Janelle Metchewais

    Janelle talks about leaving domestic abuse.  Janelle has had a difficult life.  This podcast gives you a window into Janelle's life.  We begin to understand why she stays, and why eventually she leaves alone, without her children.

    If you’re afraid of your partner, that’s a big red flag. You may be scared to say what you think, to bring up certain topics, or to say no to sex. No matter the reason, fear has no place in a healthy relationship.
    If you feel like you’re being abused, there’s a good chance you may be, and it’s worth getting help. Keep that in mind as you think about these signs:
    Your partner bullies, threatens, or controls you:
    Accuses you of having an affairBlames you for abuseCriticizes youTells you what to wear and how you should lookThreatens to kill you or someone close to youThrows things or punches walls when angryYells at you and makes you feel small

    The Unlucky Sperm Club, with Nelson Tressler

    Nelson Tressler was born into unlucky circumstances,   he lived in a small town, that didn't hold much hope that he would amount to much. 

    When your start to life includes being born into a family where your  grandfather is  charged with murder of the town's police officer,  your mom is 15 year old mother, you are poor and are being abused by your step father the only choice you have is to either live in survival mode or circum to your circumstance.

    Nelson knew even at an early age, that this was not going to be his life forever, he used those hardships to fuel his life purpose and turn despair into a life complete with a loving family and a multimillion-dollar business empire.

    Losing Myself to Grief, Susan Schruefer Ways

    Losing Myself to Grief, Susan Schruefer Ways

    Susan Schruefer Ways talks about her journey of learning to love herself first.
    Susan was there for her everyone and was someone who tried to be all things to all people. 
    Things changed for her when her husband was diagnosed with cancer. 

    Susan's boss demanded she come back to work the day after her husband died.  She was expected to come back unscathed, to be the same Susan. 
    When it was discovered that she was less engaged, she was berated and scorned. With every micro aggression, Susan could feel that her world was about to blow up.
     
    It all became to much and she quit not knowing what laid ahead.
    She is now a stronger, person with boundaries.

    Susan has her own podcast where she helps others who are going through their grief.
    Please check it out her podcast Tendrils of Grief

    Dear Luna Wilde, Leena Lemos

    Dear Luna Wilde, Leena Lemos

    Leena Lemos talks to me about yearning for a spiritual connection.  She felt this most profoundly when she was  pregnant and after the birth of her baby girl.  

    She kept wondering why women were continually skirting the real issues of how we are feeling and what motherhood  is doing to us on a soul level.

    On her quest for a more profound relationship with herself and others she started writing letters to her unborn child, here we see who she is and how she struggles as we all do with identity and love and her own spirituality.

    We discuss how important it is to live authentically and what it means to live a life as a spiritual person.
