47 :: Releasing Sexual Trauma with Gina Marie

Episode Description

Join me as I have a rare in-person conversation with spiritual relationship, sex coach, and “heart surgeon of energy” Gina Marie.
We’re going in on how stored sexual stress or trauma can hold us back from fully experiencing life, sex and relationships. We also explore how to integrate this stress or trauma so that we can use the pain to empower ourselves and stand on our own two feet.
Listen in for tools and tips to unravel stress through our own breath, cutting through the complicated stickiness of any area of life, and the impact of the recent #MeToo movement on episode 47, Releasing Sexual Trauma with Gina Marie.

Gina Marie – BIO

Inspired to travel the world after college graduation, Gina Marie found a deep calling to explore the esoteric and spiritual world. While learning from masters and shamans in places like South America and India, she realized that the key to her own awakening was within herself, and that her true calling was to serve people and to support them in their process of freedom and awakening.
Now working mainly with sexual stress and sexual trauma, Gina Marie brings people together and creates a space in which they can be present with each other through breath, sound, and movement.
Gina loves leading modern day rituals inspired by her travels, and has exciting plans in the works to let her voice be heard even more this year.

How baby steps become quantum leaps

What was the first thing you thought of when you got out of bed today? Just a few years ago I used to wake up and lay there wondering what the heck I was getting out of bed for, paralyzed by an illusion of confusion and a serious lack of clarity about what I wanted to do with my life. ‘How will I ever get all of this potent creativity out of my body and into the world?’ I thought. The long and short of it is this: I used to dread. waking. up. Can you relate? Have you ever had a period of your life where you didn’t want to get out of bed? In fact, you may have wanted to stay there all day? I know what that feels like! And now, I know what it feels like to wake up and have the very first thought come to my mind be ‘Thank you, Thank you, Thank you’ as I wrap my arms around my body and say to myself, ‘I love you Laura.. I love you sooo much! I am whole complete and perfect, I am healthy wealthy and wise.’ I’ve always dreamed of being a singer. … Continue reading

When love comes knockin' on your door

I hear the subtle voice.. the longing, the missing, the hoping, the wanting. At times the subtle voice seems to have more power than my deeper knowing. It wants me to hide, to give up, to whine and complain about what’s not working, to focus on the don’t want instead of the want, to be lost in an illusion of confusion or to convince me that I’m not really all that special… that I lack in some way that will forever stand in my way of meeting my dreams face to face, in real time. Hmmm… I’m so curious about this voice on these frigid snow filled winter days. A pattern has surfaced again these last few weeks. I am aware of this pattern in my life and it’s felt so frustrating to get clear about what this pattern is trying to show me, teach me, guide me through and into. You see, I’ve never been the type of woman to jump from one long term relationship into another. I’ve spent more time journeying solo with lovers on the side. It somehow felt safer to me.. to guard my heart from the pain of a breakup, the realization that the … Continue reading

When you think you flopped ~ Gremlins & what else is possible

I’ve always dreamed of being a singer. Truth is, over the years I’ve gone back and forth with myself about whether my voice is ‘good enough’ or ‘really good’ or ‘something worthy of sharing with others through singing.’ I remember in my early 20’s I was hanging out with some hip-hop artists here in Buffalo. I just happened to be at their home studio one day and they needed a female to vocalize a hook for them. I said ‘I’ll do it!’ even though I’d never done anything like that before. I did it because I knew that somewhere within me, I desired to share my singing voice with the world, and also, that some part of me knew that my voice was worthy of sharing. As I stood in that closet, mic in front of me, door closed, the producer told me through the headphones what to sing and how to sing it. As I began to sing, my voice went in and out of tune. What I wanted to express, how I wanted to sound, how I could HEAR the sound in my heart wasn’t translating as the air came out of my lungs and mouth into the … Continue reading
