Season 4  Episode 8:  From Shadows to Strength: Channeling Painful Experiences into Power

In this transformative episode of You Are Not Your Trauma™ podcast I am honored to share an inspiring conversation with Soodabeh Mokry, a Registered Nurse, certified hypnotherapist, and holistic wellness coach, whose life story exemplifies the power of resilience and self-transformation. 

Through her personal battles with depression and a near-fatal suicide attempt, Soodabeh discovered the pivotal role of spirituality, mindset, and forgiveness in healing from trauma. Join us as we explore how turning inward and embracing our inner strength can lead us out of the shadows of past experiences and into the empowering light of self-belief and love. 

Soodabeh is not only a healthcare professional but a warrior who has turned her deepest struggles into stepping stones for healing. With her personal and professional experience, she brings a unique blend of medical knowledge and spiritual insight to her approach, making her an inspiring figure for those on their healing journeys.

Soodabeh Mokry, RN, CHt Amazon #1 Best Selling Author of Emerging You and the author of the immigration memoir, Angel Nightingale, Motivational Speaker, Certified Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, and Holistic Wellness Coach Soodabeh inspires her patients, clients, audience, and reader to a new level of understanding of the resilience of the human spirit – and inspires them on to action. Soodabeh is the epitome of an American dream. Soodabeh knows exactly what it feels like to live a life that is shattered, filled with fear and more hopeless by the day. Escaping her war-torn homeland at the age of thirty, Soodabeh discovered an inner strength she had no idea she was capable of. Her fantasy of a happy life in the United States as a refugee from Iran was replaced by a nightmare when her marriage ended shortly after she arrived. She was left alone with two young children, no money, no family or friends, and the challenge of learning a new language. Embarking on a on a life-long journey of learning, self-discovery, and enlightenment, that continues to unfold to this very day, Soodabeh inspires people to move beyond our limitations to create lives we desire. Soodabeh has made it her life’s work to teach others how to manifest abundance, while living a life of joy, serenity and happiness, regardless of their past, their current circumstances, or what seems to be a limiting future. Supported by her forty years of medical experience and the data behind both Western and alternative wellness techniques, Soodabeh empowers people by providing the step- by- step tools to achieve our goals. Soodabeh has worked with people suffering with heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain – many of whom come to her after other attempts and relapses. Soodabeh believes that there is always hope, and she is committed to helping people live healthy and happy lives. We are each born with the power, passion, and determination to experience a harmonious and fulfilled life. Sometimes our challenges seem to prevent us from reaching our full potential. Limited thoughts and beliefs that we learn from our parents and communities may encourage us to give up and settle for less. But Soodabeh’s message in her patient sessions, presentations and programs, and writing is this... you are not bound by any circumstances. You can create and manifest the life you want. You own the power to create your destiny!
