    TRAUMARAMA

    TRAUMARAMA

    CONTENT WARNING: This episode is talking about trauma – you may hear some topics that are triggering or uncomfortable. If you feel uncomfortable, please turn us off for five seconds and come back, or listen to this episode at another time.







    We all have trauma, we all have baggage and wounds and reasons to build up walls. We all want to feel safe and secure and once we’ve been hurt, we develop a reflex to protect ourselves. I know I absolutely have. I have momma trauma. Daddy trauma. Black token trauma. And romantic emotional trauma. I’m going to jump right into that last one because this show is mostly about matters of the heart.







    Mutlidimensional healer Bhairavi Shera joins me on this episode of Road to Relovery to talk about trauma — what is it and how do we heal from it.







    “Take a Sacred Pause. Become the receiver of information rather than the defender of disempowerment.”







    What trauma still haunts you and affects your relationships today?

    Red Flags on Fire

    Red Flags on Fire

    My friend shared some quote meme this week, which read:

    The best dating advice I ever got from my mom was, “The signs you ignore in the beginning just end up being the reason you leave later. You know right away who’s good and bad for you. Don’t ignore that.”

    I re-shared it on Instagram and Facebook and my friend Rachel asked a very profound question, that is worth discussing: She said, “we should talk about why we ignore the signs — self doubt, shame etc…Why do we choose to love the red flags versus run away?”

    And immediately, I’m like YES let’s explore this and let’s do it together. 

    What red flags do you chronically ignore and why do you ignore them?

    Butts, Farts & Raising Boys

    Butts, Farts & Raising Boys

    People are constantly complimenting the behavior and general presence of my children. So it’s time to release my secret sauce. In this episode, I break down my parenting techniques. TLDR: I give my kids room to exist & I invite them to cooperate.I affirm their reasoning & make them feel secure.I write my shows ahead of time to read and reference live, then clean them up for the blog article, and then publish the audio as a podcast…







    In this episode, I wasn’t prepared to:• realize this episode is basically the outline of what should be a parenting handbook• process out loud the pain around being a single parent — my kids don’t need a stepdad; I don’t need help — I simply wish my boys could see someone love and cherish their mom• hear how many of you — and me, too — wished we had someone like me as a parent growing up. I hear that and receive that and it’s truly the most incredible compliment I’ve ever hadI was unfiltered and a little embarrassed to be so weepy. But if my raw vulnerability can help inspire your healing, I’ll do it over and over and over again.







    The full blog article will be published on www.roadtorelovery.com.
