Do you cycle between sprinting and then crashing? As intense people we have a tendency to go all in and then crash when we hit the finish line, but what happens when there's not a finish line?

This week, Aurora shares:

  • How stepping back from busyness can help us come back with better systems in place to be more productive.
  • Encouragement for you to rest and take care of yourself during the holiday season.
  • Why she's taking a month break from the podcast to rest and regroup.

A message for any woman who has felt marginalized, shut down, or shut out: you are not alone in this world. Today, I have for you a message of empowerment and strength from a new connection, Melissa Danielle. Embracing Intensity is all about bringing together women from all stages and walks of life to share their perspective on what it means to be an Intense or Excitable Woman. It is such a treat to have Melissa on the show today because she brings a breath of life and perspective we haven’t explored as much on the podcast.  Melissa is a coach, advocate, and podcaster who speaks to the wounds and setbacks women face due to flaws in the system. Her podcast, Diary of a Too Much Woman, deals with issues like sexism, the Mother Wound, feminine energy, and rediscovering identity head-on. She is on a mission to show women they are as great as they dare to be, while also giving them tools to fully express their innermost desires.

As a guest today, Melissa candidly shares her wild passions, her hardest challenges, and her brave explorations into what it means to be a woman. She will also dive into unique cultural challenges she faces as a black American woman, healing from wounds and trauma as a result of cultural stigmas, and how she has learned to embrace her identity. Are you prepared to fight for your sense of self? Give this episode a listen and see what you’ve been missing.

Have you ever felt afraid of your own power? This week Aurora shares about an experience she had this week that that brought up this quote from Marianne Williamson:

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?"

Have you ever felt unworthy? Like you didn’t belong on this planet? I think we all can struggle with the feeling that we don’t belong, but as Intense Women, it can be an extra heavy weight. Our society teaches us that we do not belong in the world at large, and many leaders are trying to take back that narrative! Today, we are bringing to you the empowering and inspiring leadership of Thais Sky, who wants nothing more than to remind you that you are valuable.

Thais is a leader, a blogger, a coach, and now, a podcaster! Her new podcast, called “Reclaim,” is all about the systematic influences that tell women they are not “enough.” Her perspective is quite unique: she was born in Brazil, grew up in Japan, and then immigrated to the U.S. where her cultural differences were stark. This unusual cultural clash led to a crisis of identity and a sense of displacement that followed her into adulthood. Her journey to healing and acceptance of her unique heritage led Thais to spiritualism. She loved the inner work she was doing but found that instead of confronting her issues, it only clouded them.

Now, Thais works to encourage women to lean into challenges, to embrace the dark as well as the light, and to work with your community to overcome issues. So much of our inner work happens in a vacuum, but Thais does not see it that way. Her work is inspiring, and so is this interview! You will not be disappointed.

More in this episode:

  • Thais shares her personal struggles about why women feel unworthy.
  • How experiences as an immigrant and an outsider led Thais to her spiritual journey of belonging.
  • Having an international family and living in cultures that valued a certain look, was a formative but difficult experience.
  • The understanding of “family” is very different in Brazil and the U.S.
  • Ways that you can learn to vocalize your needs and set up healthy boundaries.
  • How the pursuit of greatness can lead to a misrepresentation of your identity.
  • Opening up to feelings and spirituality rather than distracting or numbing down.
  • Thais talks intersectional feminism and taking coaching into a more collective mindset.
  • Tools that Thais uses to harness her passion and gifts.
