Read the press release here:
She is also the Founder of Soul Solutions. She specializes in empowering women by teaching them to set personal boundaries, reframe the stories they tell themselves, overcome their fears, and push past their limiting beliefs.
Terri’s book is part memoir, part self-help guide and is a raw and personal story of diving deep into childhood trauma, dealing with the terror before ultimately getting comfortable with fear and transcending it. We dove deep into the ins and outs of her childhood trauma and how each stage of progression or the lack thereof shaped her ego in a way where sometimes it protected her, tricked her and as she learned, ultimately kept her from living her life. As Terri puts it, you stay stuck until you are able to make the shift and that shift came when she had an “aha” moment.
Sometimes the people that are the closest to us tend to be very truthful and sometimes that truth can hurt; however, Terri took the opportunity of this “aha” moment when a friend mentioned that she was getting something for playing the victim of abuse instead of living as a survivor. This was the start of her awakening; the moment she became a survivor!
So poignant what Terri wrote in the Afterword of her book: “Acknowledging our stories allows us to reframe them without shame, blame, or guilt. It recognizes the truth that the soul sees in the light. The ego is what holds us back. It’s the reason we stay in fear for so long.” Terri Kozlowski
Hard-earned wisdom indeed - priceless! “Why me? Now what?”
