In my work as a soul warrior coach, I help women find their voice, own their story and live a life they love. Here is part of my story and an invitation to you.
Recently, someone I'd met for the first time asked, " Do you like sports?" "No," I replied. "Well, that's not entirely true, I like the story. You know, the backstory of the people and the team, so yes, I guess I do like sports. I like sports for the story rather than the competition itself."
I was gazing towards the ceiling as I spoke and when I looked at her, the expression on her face was smirked complete with a perplexed head tilt. She chuckled and said, "Wow. I don't think I've ever heard that as a response to my question."
"I mean, like, not ever."
We both erupted into raucous laughter. Then my new acquaintance added, "You're a little different."
Yes, I am a little different.
I fall in love with stories, cry with joy over the triumphs of people I've never met, ache for the losses of strangers, lose hours upon hours in photojournalistic captures of life events of people around the world. I am fascinated by humanity and the infinite forms of self-expression. Intrinsically, my soul tunes into the stories shared, I am always absorbing, reflecting and learning.
I relish time spent considering the multifaceted qualities, pondering how each piece completes the entity. I talk with everyone, everywhere about anything while connecting, always connecting to the story of the moment. I fall open like a pomegranate, immediately revealing all the juicy pieces of my own story and cavernous spaces yet untouched.
As a woman born of West Indian and Irish descent, my heritage is of cultures rich in the love and art of storytelling. It's literally in my bones. To me, there is nothing more beautiful, more pure, more sacred than a person's story. Especially those who have endured beyond pain, trauma, and abuse. These aspects are close to my heart from the personal experiences of being abused, feeling victimized, relinquishing hope to the time in my life when I became fed up with status quo of merely surviving, deciding to own my story and heal my soul.
Today, I am experiencing wholehearted self-love and joyful living. My life is not without struggles or disappointments however now; they no longer are at the helm of how I exist and who I attract into my life.
Through years of healing and learning, my heart is ready to listen, stand beside and support the hearts of other women. I want to encourage other women to own their unique story and trust the power and wisdom of their voice.
I recognize that women are the bedrock of their communities; they will take everything on that needs to be taken care often pushing their own needs and value to the background of their worlds. Often, women will feel something missing and know that shift is needed but cannot find the source of their dissatisfaction, fear or confusion.
My experience and knowledge can support your path to the clarity needed towards self-understanding and self-awareness. Both of which inherently nurture self-love.
Let's work together and create a sacred space for you to honor the truths of your story. You'll learn to recognize the triggers that inhibit your access to joyful living and prevent movement towards the positive changes you desire for yourself.

You are worthy of love, healing, and happiness. Your story is beautiful; even the darkest chapters offer insight into your courage and vulnerability that will lead you to the changes you desire.
Be you, be empowered, be emancipated and joyful.
Peace, Love, & Light,
Laura Phoenix Power
