Thais Sky on healing from binge eating, the worthiness wound, and defining the word “broken”
Have a Listen!
Episode Sneak Peek
“There is no point to the human experience except to look at our trauma and our wounding and to use that to our fortitude and our resilience so that we can show up more powerfully.”
“Being human fucking sucks sometimes.”
“Instead of thinking I feel broken, reclaim the thought as I feel broken…why?”
“We contort our mindset and judgments of ourselves in the world so we deny there’s actually a problem here because once we acknowledge there’s a problem…we need to do something about it.”
What’s in this Episode
Healing work is hard. And exhausting. And oh so worth it. You’ve heard me say that before and now today’s guest, Thais Sky, is saying it as well.
As women, we are strong and powerful creatures made even more powerful when tackling the tough wounds and I feel like no one understands that better than Thais.
Thais is a straight-talking truthteller and I found myself nodding along vigorously as Thais dives right into healing traumas and the worthiness wound and even helps me redefine the word “broken”.
We tackled just about every difficult topic you can imagine starting with Thais’ own journey to healing from binge eating and her feelings of unworthiness. We talk about finding God, why women struggle to feel worthy (I think we all know why…ahem…cough…patriarchy) and how we can join our sisters to fight systematic oppression.
Also? Intersectionality, fear and doubt, the pitfalls of the self-help industry…the good stuff just keeps coming!
Listen in and let Thais’ wisdom fill you with hope and strength and so much resilience. Because remember…YOU are a powerful creature.
Listen in to hear Thais and I talk about:
- Why Thais felt drawn to coach women and our unique psychological needs.
- The first time Thais prayed to God and the response she got.
- How our wounds, traumas, addictions, etc can be our greatest source of power.
- A candid conversation about binge eating, and the pivotal moments that allow us to heal.
- Why forcing ‘readiness’ rarely works.
- The worthiness wound and the innate sense of not belonging.
- Spiritual practices and habits we use to build up our inner worth.
- Dismantling the systems that oppress us from within.
