First: THANK YOU for the outpouring of love after I shared my abortion story last week.
The response has been enormous, and I’m in awe of how much freer, more alive, and supported I feel as a result. This is just it!
So much healing is possible when–one by one–we break the chains of silence and have kept women disempowered for so long . This is our time to rise.
We need to use our voices. We need to connect to one another. We need to unburden ourselves of any shame we’re carrying by sharing our secrets within safe spaces.
As 12-step programs proclaim, “We’re only as sick as our secrets.”
Next week I will release another podcast episode in the #I Had an Abortion series. It will be a candid Q & A with me about my story and a deeper conversation around abortion in general .
For now, I want you to know that I’ve read and heard all of the stories of your own abortions that you’ve so bravely shared with me. My heart is with you all, in your pain and in your joy.
No doubt, our experiences with abortions are as varied as we women are. Some are filled with relief and ease, others with trauma and heartache. And still others, a mix of all of these.
One of the reasons why I shared my story and created the non-profit, Redemption Circle (to create a global support network that empowers women to heal after abortions), is because I know that my next step in healing is to help others heal.
Over the past few years I’ve needed to reach for a tremendous amounts of support. I know first-hand how expensive life can get when so much help is needed, so often, at so many levels.
I’m grateful that many of the healers I worked with offered me discounted or sliding scale payment options to make ongoing support possible. Their help allowed me to rebuild my strength enough to now be able to reach my hand back and help others in a similar position.
To now do my part in paying their kindness forward, for the first time I’m offering one-on-one counseling sessions for a much lower rate than I normally charge.
PERSONAL COUNSELING SESSIONS
To support women navigating a big transition, life crisis, and/or financial hardship, I’m offering one-on-one support at a rate that’s over 50% less than my regular mentoring fees.
Sessions may include mentoring in:
- Guided imagery to reparent your inner child
- Nutrition and supplement recommendations
- Movement and meditation guidance
- Mindset shifts
- Reprogramming your subconscious beliefs
- Tactical steps and tips to get your life moving forward in the way you want
- Owning and integrating your Shadow
You may be a good fit for this if: You’re in the middle of a crisis (health/financial/relational/identity).
I have additional expertise and passion in:
- Healing after an abortion or baby loss of any kind
- Strengthen your health and immune system after long-term stress and crisis (or you have an autoimmune propensity)
- Preparing to conceive/balancing your hormones
- Putting a plan together to have a baby on your own (and offering emotional and tactical support as you implement it)
- Recovering from narcissistic abuse/heartbreak/betrayal
Sessions are 60 minutes, over the phone or Skype. You’ll receiving an mp3 recording afterwards.
Space is very limited.
And, if you’re in a season of life where you’re feeling relatively steady and clear, I invite you to offer your support to those women who are struggling right now.
Please consider donating to Redemption Circle, the 501(c)(3) and global movement I founded to heal the stigma of abortion and empower women to heal physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually after their abortions.
The only way this vision can become a reality is through your support. You can donate as little as $5 a month (the cost of a cup of coffee), and it literally takes less than two minutes to do so.
On that page you’ll also see ways that you can get involved with this movement– by joining me on the Board of Directors or by leading Redemption Circles for women in your community.
The only way we’ll be able to make a difference is if we make it together.
And, for those of you struggling right now, I hope these one-on-one counseling sessions can be of some support right now.
For those of you ready for a journey to heal from abortion as a community-– whatever and whenever your experience was– registration for the online course “Redemption Circle” is opening very soon!
