Welcome back, ass kickers! This is the first interview episode of 2019 and I am super pumped to share my conversation with Thais Sky. Thais is a truthspeaker, healer, women’s coach and feminist on a heart-led mission to support the seekers, the edge-dwellers, and the “why the heck do I feel so broken” of the world reclaim their sense of belonging by learning how to explore, trust and express themselves unapologetically. Thais is so expressive and downright poetic, as you’ll hear. I loved my conversation with her and I hope you do too.
This week, Thais and I talk about the worthiness wound, what contributes to it, some critical steps to take to reclaim your worth and how healing the worthiness wound is a radical act. We also talk about personal development and how we often hope someone will save us, but it really comes down to doing the work. We also touch on holding the human experience and being capable of navigating through triggers, thoughts and feelings. Lastly, we talk about whiteness, patriarchy, becoming radicalized and acknowledging that one can be both the oppressor and the oppressed (and how that doesn’t mean you are a bad person).
In this episode you’ll hear:
- What reclaiming our sense of worthiness truly means (9 minutes and 21 seconds)
- How to begin reclaiming your worth (and how it’s different from cultivating confidence) (11:02)
- Taking on the responsibility of others and hoping someone will save us (19:17)
- Healing the “little girl” within (aka inner child work) (21:44)
- What contributes to the worthiness wound, and why we can’t talk about the worthiness wound without talking about whiteness (27:14)
- Acknowledging ableism and fat phobia (39:12)
