*TRIGGER WARNING* This episode contains brief conversation on rape and sexual trauma.
Morgan likes radical honesty. She asks, "Are you living the epic life of the woman you were created to be? ...Or are you living the too-small life of the woman you were conditioned to be?"
Without the language to process, she embodied a rape at 15 and took on the story “you are bad” which rooted itself in her psyche.
“Shame is not my identity. It is not who I am.”
The roots of shame grew branches and trunks in the form of beliefs that Morgan said dictated, “who I am and what’s possible as a woman and that’s what I had to get to the root of and free myself from.”
It manifested as:
- Chronic Depression
- No desire to move
- To motivation for her life
- Overwhelmed with exhaustion
…just thinking about being the woman of her dreams sent her into lethargy (I’ll just sleep until I die!) - it was too overwhelming to make the leap from chronic depression to a free woman.
The truth is: we store so much of our wounds in our body and getting free from that was a “homecoming” to her body. That is why she has such an interest in the concept of embodiment.
The old belief was that she was bad and her body was a part of the problem. But if her body was a part of the problem, what could possibly be the solution? Her body isn’t going anywhere!
What if we just disconnect? Wouldn’t that be easier?
Often times, we don’t want to be where the pain happens and so we disconnect from the source of the pain: the body.
Now, Morgan realizes that she is separate from her body.
“I think therefore I am.”
It’s been a journey from the head (consciousness) down through the honey pot (the body aka the subconscious).
She used to think “I could get there from the mind alone” but she soon realized that she needed to heal her gaze and heal her relationship with her body (and the embodiment of her feelings) in order to really step into her power.
Now, she believes in the possibility that all women everywhere can be reconciled with their own wholeness and brought back into their power by their own resources.
Her greatest desire is to bring light to dark places and help women heal their own gaze and expand their capacity to love and be loved (...AND make A LOT of money!)
Morgan shares with us a few interesting Past Life Regression hypnosis (PLR) experiences and the learnings she took from them. While she had interesting learnings from these experiences, she reminds us that we don’t want to get lost in the past - we want to focus on the future.
