A Former JW's Journey to Self Love and ENM

Episode72: A Former JW's Journey to Self Love and ENM


Today my special guest is Ariel.

I will keep her anonymous as she was kind enough to share her vulnerable story with us and allow me to interview her.

This beautiful girl has had quite a journey growing up as a Jehovah's Witness and eventually leaving the church. There is so much shame associated with leaving a religion that is deep rooted since childhood. When you are taught that you have the absolute truth, your mission on earth is to basically tell others they are wrong your whole life. It's exhausting and it is a challenge to truly love without expectation.

You are taught that self love is selfish and that you must love only God/Jehovah, or your life is basically meaningless and you risk being shunned and ostricized by the only community you have know if you question anything.

Ariel was able to leave and rebuild her worldview as well. She has learned to deeply treasure herself and has overcome the shame around sexuality and body image. Modesty is revered in these communities and anything else is sinful. It is so hard to shed that programming and become sex positive.

Now, she is a beautiful example of self love and successful Ethical Non-Monogamy. She is able to embrace who she is to her core and make deep lasting connections with people in this beautiful world that are based on love and true authenticity.

I want this for all of you! Enjoy this week's episode.

Love, Karine

You've heard, “Sex is wrong! Relationships are supposed to be hard work!”

What you probably didn’t learn is that sex is empowering and that relationships can be free, and fun, and empowered all at the same time! Karine kicks shame and guilt to the curb so that you can live your most authentic life the way that you want to.

She never in her wildest dreams imagined living the Empowered, Sexy, and Authentic life that she lives right now. Discovering Sex Positivity was the catalyst that allowed her to step out and explore a whole new world of possibilities! She is a Bible School Graduate turned Playboy Enthusiast! While studying the “worst of the worst”, she found her people.

Life is not always what we’ve been taught. Karine uses her magnetism, deep love of people and intuition to release her clients from the societal and religious boxes that they have been programmed into. She wants to inspire people to live their truth and discover their often deeply buried sexual desires and bring them to life in a safe and ethical way that empowers them and their relationships.

She is normalizing Ethical Non-Monogamy. She wants couples to step out and discover the beauty and power of true honesty, authenticity, and confidence in relationships. Looking at the world through a Sex Positive lens will absolutely shift how you understand relationships.

She uses her magnetism and transparency to make you feel safe and seen. Her intuition allows her to see exactly what is holding you back in life and her ability to really see you makes you feel accepted and safe with her. Through her openness and vulnerability she is able to transform your fears into joy and excitement. She is the best at bringing you safely into this Sex Positive world without fear or regret. She guides you every step of the way.

She wants more for you than the script you’ve been fed, “Find your soulmate, marry them, and be monogamous forever!” There is so much more than this in life. Step out and finally Break Free!
