Childhood sexual trauma is a taboo topic that is rarely discussed openly. As a result, millions of people globally suffer in silence, repressing their feelings and memories, and carrying guilt, shame and anger within themselves. We lock our pain away deep within our brains, we naturally want to reject it. But attempting to hold these feelings in, or pretend they don’t exist, doesn’t work—the pain simply finds another way to come out, through addiction, lashing out, disease. We need to see the trauma, feel it, talk about it, release it. In order to completely heal, we need to fully embrace and accept our past pain, and be grateful for it. It is when we can find the gratitude for our challenges, that we can truly rise up and help others heal.
Toni Lewis is a Spirit Junkie, successful entrepreneur, blogger and mother, with an incredible healing story. She experienced sexual trauma at a young age, went through therapy, and assumed it was all resolved. Except it wasn’t. A few years ago, she hit rock bottom. She was exhausted, unable to control her tiredness, too busy and stressed out with her business and her family, not eating properly. But underneath all of that, at the very core, was her trauma. It was a wake-up call.
Even at a young age, Toni had the sense that what she was experiencing would help her to help other people living through the same thing. After taking Levels 1 and 2 of Gabby’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass, she’s doing exactly that. As an active member of New Zealand’s health and wellness community, Toni helps people to move beyond their limiting beliefs, step into their power and heal their trauma. Watch out for her upcoming book, a memoir of her journey that will include healing tools and strategies. Go to her website and sign up to be the first to know when it’s ready, and to read her inspiring blog. You can also join her private Facebook group, Spiritual Home with Toni Lewis, a safe space and beautiful community where you can talk about your trauma and receive support.
For Toni, taking the Spirit Junkie Masterclass Levels 1 and 2 was totally transformational. She wasn’t sure why she was there. But she had an unshakeable sense that she had to be there. She travelled two days to get to New York from New Zealand, but when she walked into the workshop, she felt like she’d come home—she was in a roomful of people just like her. After the training, ideal clients started calling, and the money started coming in. From near bankruptcy, her family construction company is now multi-million company.
