Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Wednesday, January 4, 2023, Dr. Cassandra LeClair (“Cassandra”.) (This podcast was also simulcasted through the Wisdom Audio App.) Cassandra is the Author of the Book: Being Whole / Healing from Trauma and Reclaiming My Voice. Cassandra is also a communication consultant and motivational speaker. She is an expert on communicating in relationships and improving connections. Cassandra helps individuals lead through intentional communication so that they can take aligned action and embody their personal power. Dr. LeClair’s mission is to educate individuals on how to understand their communication patterns to have effective and healthy communication to enhance their professional And personal relationships.
Cassandra did not start out wanting to write her book; it was a general progression. You see, when she was a child, she was sexually abused. Being at that young, tender age, throughout her life she was always trying to come to grips with her healing journey (even feeling the physiological sickness and pain through her diagnosis.)
At many times throughout her journey, and through journaling, she was trying to understand the pattern that took control of her life. Yes; she is an expert in communicating and has worked hard over the years earning her PhD. She is also a genuine, beautiful soul sharing her very vulnerable story.
Things are hard in life and in her book on page 47, she writes:
I own that piece of my story and I control my feelings about how it has shaped periods of my life. I did a lot of work to heal those pieces. The journey to finding myself after that diagnosis and through the sickness was the hardest thing I had done up to that point.
You are not alone: “Healing doesn’t have to be your personality.”
Healing is also a continual process and it’s okay to ask for help.
