Have you experienced trauma and struggled to move through it so you can get on the other side and find the gifts in the experience? I know I have. If that’s your case too, this episode is for you.

For today’s episode, I sat down with Keira Poulsen. Keira is a spiritual entrepreneurship coach for Lightworkers, healers, change-makers, and leaders. She helps women create their soul work and successful businesses derived from their gifts and purpose. She is also the founder of Freedom House Publishing Co. and the creator and host of The Awaken Podcast, a show that talks about awakening the greatness inside of each human.

Listen to the episode here:


1- Trauma is an experience that can help us open up and expand to who we are meant to be. The healing process can show you your purpose, how you can be of service in the world, and the type of impact you are meant to have.

2- The first steps of healing include finding support to alchemize the experience, (therapy, coach, healer, shaman. Once you start the healing process, you will clear space in your mind, body, and soul to ask for guidance, to connect with your highest self, to your inner wisdom, your intuition.

3- Prayer, meditation, and journaling can help you answer the questions: What am I here to create? How am I meant to impact the world?

4- Create a sacred space for yourself where you can have a routine that connects you to your soul, to a higher power, and where you can be in stillness. As it becomes nourishing to your nervous system, you get to start a healing journey really gently. Movement, breath, and creative energy are also keys to healing.

5- Find the things that are the most supportive for you and your healing and make those non-negotiables in your life. Then, prioritize it in your schedule. Ask for support as you need it and be clear on why it matters.
