This podcast is about overcoming addiction, finding inner strength, healing from trauma, and allowing your own consciousness to be your guide.
Recovering from trauma, especially sexual trauma, seems insurmountable. PTSD is real. But there is a way that does not include addiction or self-harm. Spirituality, consciousness, the 12 Steps and meditation were all a part of my story that led to self love and healing.
No healing journey is the same. But there is something that knows YOUR right path.
Join me on this journey of healing while we refuse to drown together.
Sex Addiction, Relapse, and Spiritual Awakenings
Recovery is not a linear process. There are many slips and falls along the way for chronic alcoholics like me. In this episode, I paint the grim picture of how relapse happens and shed light on my own sex addiction as a result of sexual trauma. More importantly, I start to see the light. Spiritual awakenings do not happen overnight, but they do happen. This is the beginning of mine!
A Survivors Story - Part 2 - How Shark Tank Changed My LIfe
In this episode, I talk about how I wound up in the psych ward. How pharmaceuticals fed to me by negligent shrinks caused me to nearly take my life. And how something said to me on Shark Tank changed the trajectory of my life, forever.
This is part 2 of my "refusing to drown" story. Healing from trauma and addiction is absolutely possible, I am living proof.
If I can survive the shit-tornado of life, and do so with grace, so can you!
A Survivor's Story - Part 1 - Where my Addiction Began
In episode one of Refusing to Drown, I begin to tell my own story of spiritual sensitivity, sexual abuse, and early addiction patterns. But this is only part of the story. There is a happy ending on the other end that will inspire you beyond belief. We ALL have a refusing to drown story, this one just happens to be mine.
Hopefully, by sharing it with other people struggling through the rapids of life, I can extend a life preserver along the way. We all need that from time to time.
Recovery from alcoholism, addiction, sexual trauma, and LIFE is indeed possible, and I am living proof!
