Childhood, Relationship, Self-Compassion, Transformation, Trauma


This week Sheleana Aiyana and I talk about Rising Woman. What does it mean to be a rising woman? How did Sheleana’s life lead her to this work? How does one begin to transform pain and trauma into self-compassion and healing? How can we start stepping into our power? If you have ever been impacted by childhood wounds (all of us)  then this episode is for you.



  • Acceptance as the path toward healing.
  • Shea’s life path – the childhood wounds and traumas.

  • Victim mentality and letting go of it.
  • How do we start taking responsibility and stepping into our power?
  • Inner child work and self-soothing.
