59: Healing From Wounds and Trauma in Order Embrace Your Identity With Melissa Danielle

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, All the Things with Melissa Danielle, deals with issues like sexism, the Mother Wound, feminine energy, and rediscovering identity head-on. Her episode "Diary of a Too Much Woman" really caught Aurora's attention. Melissa 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.
