Mytrae Meliana is a Women’s Empowerment and Spiritual Teacher, a Holistic Psychotherapist, Trauma Expert, speaker and author. She leads workshops and programs for women that empower them to heal from trauma, liberate themselves from patriarchy, and connect with the divine feminine so that they can live true, bold, inspired lives. Mytrae is also the founder of Temple of Sound Healing, which teaches Sound Healing to Health and Wellness Practitioners and Social Justice Community Leaders. An immigrant from India, Mytrae shares her story of healing, empowerment, and awakening in her memoir: “Brown Skin Girl: An Indian-American Woman's Magical Journey From Broken To Beautiful”.    In this episode, Mytrae and I discuss: Seeking a way out in an abusive relationship How children are affected by abuse - signs to watch out for and how they may cope Knowing your rights as a human being The clash between individuality and family, culture and religion   Key Takeaways: Acknowledge when you discover that you’re living a lie and letting your freedom be limited by other people - you have the capacity to break free and make it on your own, even if it doesn’t feel like it.  It’s important to explain sexual boundaries to your child; they might be getting abused but don’t have the language to express to you what they’re going through Own and proclaim your freedom, don’t follow the train tracks of control and expectation, and build your own life. Your culture might tell you that God is angry at you or that you are bad, but there’s never a moment that you’re not loved by the Divine.   "Taking the baby steps when I couldn’t chart out anything in my life was a way to crawl forward in my life… we’re scared and daunted of what we have to do but take that one step… that’s plenty. It’s a way to build that muscle and move… you’ll be stuck, unless you keep moving " —  Mytrae Meliana   Check out Mytrae’s book, “Brown Skin Girl”, here:     Connect with Mytrae Meliana: Twitter: Facebook:  Website:  Instagram:    CONNECT WITH CYNTHIA: If you'd like to chat with Cynthia, sign up for your Personal Safety Preparedness Consultation with her today!
