“The fact that your loved ones may worry as you spiritually venture into things they don’t understand — I think that’s the most important context: Sometimes we fear what we don’t understand. And it’s not that it’s innately positive or negative, we’ve just already labeled it bad.”
Is calling it “an awakening” a disservice to what we experience? That’s what Marilys Candelario and Leena Lemos are diving into on this episode of the Enlightenedhood Podcast. Marilys shares her journey of self-awareness and all the unlearning that had to happen to step into this new version of herself.
Whether indoctrinated by religion, media, our societal norms, there are a lot of layers to unpack and Marilys provides empowering insight to what healing and growth actually look like.
