Η Νικόλ Μίτσελ έκανε ολοκληρωτική στροφή στη ζωή της, καθώς αποφάσισε να εγκαταλείψει την εκκλησία και να γίνει σπιτριζέζ.

Για να πάρουμε τα πράγματα από την αρχή, η 36χρονη έκανε την πρώτη της επανάσταση όταν ανακοίνωσε στην οικογένεια της, την απόφαση να γίνει πάστορας.

«Πάντα μου έλεγαν πως η γυναίκα είναι για την κουζίνα και τα παιδιά αλλά εγώ δεν το πίστευα. Έτσι, παρά τα όσα μου έλεγαν, αποφάσισα να γίνω πάστορας», δήλωσε σχετικά.

Έτσι το 2011, η Νικόλ και ο πρώην σύζυγός της πήγαν στην Εκκλησία Woodland Hills.

Αλλά δεν ήταν ένα ομαλό ταξίδι, όπως είπε ο Νικόλ στο New York Post,  «Από νεαρή ηλικία, φανταζόμουν ότι είμαι στριπτιζέζ. Αλλά θεωρούσα πως όλο αυτό είναι εντελώς αμαρτωλό και κακό».

Στη συνέχεια, το 2016 η Νικόλ άρχισε να αμφισβητεί τη σεξουαλικότητά της, λέγοντας «Δεν νομίζω ότι είμαι straight», αν και μητέρα 3 παιδιών. «Ήξερα πως αν το αποκαλύψω, η εκκλησία δεν θα το δεχόταν», τόνισε.

Όμως δεν θέλησε να κρατήσει μυστική τη σεξουαλικότητά της και στις 4 Ιουλίου 2017 η Νικόλ άφησε την εκκλησία για πάντα.

Άρχισε να ερευνά τις επιθυμίες της και να κάνει γυμνές φωτογραφίσεις και πλέον δηλώνει πολύ ευτυχισμένη.

The patriarchy taught me that I don't belong in positions of power. My job was to play & stay small. Churches taught me that women don't belong in the pulpit. My job was to serve behind the scenes. Religion taught me to settle for crumbs & to not ask for more. My job was to sacrifice myself & put myself last. And after 33 years of trying to live by their rules, I literally collapsed & ended up in the ER twice in May of 2017. When you try to convince a star to not shine, you give it a death sentence. That’s when I knew something had to change. That's when I was divinely assigned the task to figure out my worth once and for all, give myself permission to do what I love and express myself fully, and to not stop until I was free, unleashed and unstoppable in every way. (And you know I did my homework 😎) I learned to stop giving my power away and gave myself my own damn leadership position. I learned that I was definitely not born to be behind the scenes and allowed myself to shine as the star I was born to be instead. I learned sacrificing myself was the exact opposite of what I was born to do and by prioritizing myself I was able to help more people and make a bigger difference. And here I am! Living in the state of my dreams, doing the work of my soul, serving badass clients, making money being me, and being interviewed and published across the globe! AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. – I am living proof it is not too late. – I am living proof that you have ALL THE POWER WITHIN YOU to create the reality of your dreams. – I am living proof that your job is to figure out who you were born to be and to unleash that badass bitch in all her glory! You are here to live your purpose, unleash your passion, follow the dreams of your heart and to 👏🏾have👏🏾it👏🏾all👏🏾. Everything you want you can have, I promise. And if you're ready to take your life to the next level and become the star YOU were born to be, I got you. I am here to support you, guide you, and empower you to live a wildly free and beautifully abundant life. Click the link in my bio to work with me 1:1 or to join my mastermind! It’s time to rise and shine! 📸: @heresjohnny.photo

Myth #1: Money can't buy you happiness. . Let's debunk this myth, shall we? . Here is what having a surplus of money has helped in my personal life: . – no longer being on daily anxiety pills . – no more middle of the night panic attacks about how to pay all the damn bills . – no more obsessing over every penny/dollar spent . – no more showing up to birthday parties without gifts simply b/c I couldn't afford it . – being able to give so much money away in generous tips, donations, scholarships, etc . – traveling out of country each year the past two years after an 8 year hiatus . – seeing more theatre productions, eating out at favorite restaurants, & buying clothes I LIKE, not just clothes I can afford . – flying first class . – buying a new car . – enrolling my children in classes/programs they've always wanted to take . – buying fresh bouquets of flowers every week for my home . – the list could go ON . and you know what all of this adds up to? . A whole lotta happiness! . Money gives you OPTIONS. Money gives you FREEDOM. Money gives you BREATHING ROOM. Money gives you SO MUCH HAPPINESS. . Money is simply a tool. . A tool you can use for the sake of happiness, wholeness, and joy. Or for greed, lust, and manipulation. . But money itself is a neutral resource. . YOU get to decide what it means for you and unlocks for you. . You can use it to bring more happiness into your life or to bring more misery into your life. . That is on YOU though. Not money. . But DON'T tell yourself "money can't buy you happiness" as an excuse to stay in your miserable state. . Money can bring you a lot of relief and joy if you let it; it's not something that has to be feared. . And you are worthy of a life that brings you joy, so much happiness, & takes the weight off your shoulders. . >>> Money helps greatly with that. <<< . Do you see how loaded the topic money is & what needs to be addressed before you can start raking it in? . We'll be doing just that inside #MonetizeYourShit. . 4 weeks of powerful support that'll help you heal your relationship with money, lock in your worthiness, & help you make money being you & doing what you love.❤ .

You playing small doesn’t serve anyone. . We need you to take up space. We need you to speak up. We need you to share just exactly who you are and what you came here to do. . You being supported and becoming resourced is the bare minimum for who you’re becoming and where you’re going. . We need more good-hearted people like you becoming resourced and funded so you can go out and do good work in the world. . Learning how to monetize yourself, monetize your work, and allowing yourself to be beautifully and wildly compensated is one of the best things you can do. . It allows you to operate in your zone of genius, give beautifully to the world, and build the life of your dreams. . Last night in our mastermind call, I was able to help a client see a skill set she has that she can start monetizing TODAY. . It was such an exciting revelation! . No need to wait to make money. No need to take just any ol job to make money. . But a way to be who you are, do what you love, help others in a very real way, and make lots of money doing it! . I’m telling you… you have everything within you RIGHT NOW to start making money doing what you love. . It requires you to know your value, to know you’re worthy of compensation, and it’s safe for you to own who you are and share your gifts with the world. . Once you feel worthy and safe, there is NOTHING you can’t do. . Rise up now. Speak up now. Monetize now. Receive now. . There is nothing or no one you need to wait on. . You’ve already been given the green light. . The question is… are you willing to receive? . The money? The love? The support? . It’s there waiting for you. . Ask and you shall receive. . Love you! . On my way to Big Bear Lake for a shoot! Can’t wait to see what magic we create out here! . (P.S. Tried to post this yesterday while out in Big Bear but had no reception. See my stories for BTS!) . 📸: @davekelleyphotography
