Today we are speaking with Holistic Counsellor and Author, Shannon Moyer-Szemenyei. Shannon is a Leader. Wife. Mother. Friend. Poet. Mentor. Human. She is a believer in fundamental rights, standing up for oneself, owning your truth and being a kind and compassionate human being, leaving a positive impact wherever possible. Shannon lives with her family in London, Ontario and, when not writing or nurturing others, you can find her at the hockey rink or horse barn with her boys, or cuddled on the couch with her rescue dog, Berney.
In this episode, we discuss:
1 - Learning how to commit to our healing and using our voice to help others. Being quiet and hiding in our stories doesn’t serve anyone. This is a punishment to ourselves.
2 - What does owning your truth mean, and how our own mental health and healing was far more important than the discomfort of others. When we turn the inner dialogue off to protect others, we stop listening to our own intuition and voice.
3 - Trauma is relative to your own individual experience in life as a human being. Shannon speaks openly about how trauma impacts and affects our brain and how we then process those pieces. We have to deal with the root causes of our trauma in order to move through it.
4 - There can be beauty in the breakdown when we allow ourselves to feel the emotions to heal and then use those lessons in our life by paying it forward to others.
