Who Is the Real You Under the Story?

Episode79: Who Is the Real You Under the Story?


Today my special guest is Michaela Gaffen Stone.

Michaela Gaffen Stone is a lifelong traveler and student of life, diving into new places and experiences with enthusiasm. Her journey has had many twists and turns, all with valuable points of learning. Her passion for helping elevate others from a place of stuckness to freedom, began when she became a registered nurse, caring for people’s health firsthand. Realizing that this was a band aid solution at best, she dove into the world of nutrition and behavior coaching, getting certified as a Precision Nutrition Level 2 Master Coach and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Her journey didn’t stop there—she became a Certified Wildfit Coach and recently earned her certification in Back to Spring coaching because she truly believes in its power to transform lives.

She says, "What sets me apart is my deep understanding of why we eat the way we do, especially when emotions come into play. I’m not here to push you into another restrictive diet."

Most of us don't realize we are living our lives out by a story we believe to be true. In fact it is a story that runs in our subconscious and controls most of our actions and reactions. We basically live our lives on autopilot and we aren't even aware of it. Only 5% of our decisions are made from the conscious part of our mind and 95% is controlled by the subconscious mind and the stories that we have about ourselves and the world around us.

Our past experiences and traumas create this story and belief system. What if we decided to not let this unknown story dictate our lives? Who would we actually be if we didn't see ourselves through this story?

Michaela and I discuss the things that often create our stories and keep us stuck in unhealthy patterns. As a Behavioural Analyst, she brings a lot of insite into human behaviour and why we do the things that we do. We often have emotional attachments to our unhealthy habits. We act in accordance with the story that we believe. In fact, we will only rise to the level that we believe we deserve. It's important to uncover our stories in order to live our most authentic, empowered lives and be free to create a new chosen story!

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!
