If you’re interested in looking more deeply at what’s really going on, both within yourself and in other areas of your life, you’ve come to the right place. Many of us go for years without examining the fundamental assumptions on which our lives rest. We believe that there is something missing or wrong, or that we’re damaged or defective, or deficient in some way. We believe that we’re separate from others, and maybe even from ourselves. We carry self-limiting beliefs or have low self-esteem. We struggle with managing our personal vibrations (emotions), anxiety, trauma, compulsive behaviors, or both. We seek self-help books, personal development tools, and resources to help navigate our sacred contract. We even try to apply the law of attraction principles to our lives. We try hard to make it all work, and yet we often find ourselves suffering. Whatever is going on with you, we can explore it together in a way that’s gentle, radical, and transformative. I say gently because, with the Shadow Work Process and conjunction with applying the law of attraction principles, there’s no push. We don’t force things or go to places we’re not ready to go to, because we let the body guide us, and as you may have experienced, the body is possessed of innate wisdom. In sessions, you’re able to be exactly as you are, however, you are, in each moment. Radical, because we let everything – every thought, every feeling, every sensation – be just as it is. There’s no analyzing, rationalizing, or trying to change, fix, or manage. And that’s what brings about the transformation. Paradoxically, it is by letting it all be, exactly as it is, that we see there’s a deeper truth beyond our beliefs. And that seeing is life-changing.


UNDERSTANDING THE UNDERLYING CAUSE OF CHRONIC CONSTIPATION Spiced Life Conversation was designed as a private practice that specializes in spiritual awakening, stress management related to chronic constipation, emotional wellness, and energy healing. Constipation is one of the most common modern human sufferings. Besides all familiar constipation causes – lack of sufficient intake of fiber and water, physical inactivity, and unhealthy eating, constipation also has hidden causes. As a nutritionist, wellness behavioral health coach, life transition intuitive spiritual counselor, and mindset coach in my private practice working with people with emotional issues and chronic constipation many of their health issues did not come from the common issues mentioned above, many of my clients developed constipation during and after giving birth and developing hemorrhoids, beginning a new career that required traveling for work, others come to me after beginning a low carb diet, others experiencing high levels of stress were preventing them from eliminating waste, and believe it or not a lot of emotional and mental health issues come into play that causes disruption and fecal impaction such as binge eating disorders, abandonment issues, uncertainty, low sense of self-worth, low self-esteem, depression, fear and anxiety, and lack of soul purpose. It is known in the holistic world when one has digestion and stomach problems there is something more going on inside on a deeper level- then the question is,

"What or who can't you stomach?" Therefore, today I focus on helping my clients make their self-care rituals a top priority. I've found that when the inner work and healthier eating of real whole foods are done consistently constipation heals itself.

For decades, Louise L. Hay best selling author of You Can Heal Your Life taught that there is a connection between your digestion and how you digest life. Although there is no scientific evidence for this concept by health professionals; I must say I can agree with the concept, because I've seen it work in my own life and the lives of my clients. As soon as I begin practicing shadow work by turning inward and beginning to gently listen and heal those aspects within myself due to my own emotional abandonment issues I personally saw a change in my digestive flow. I can't explain it, I'm thinking due to the decrease in processed foods and added whole foods and release of stress I was able to calm my body and release the toxin with ease. By facing the shadow we begin to shine a light into the darkness and invite that which has been hiding to come out. As for me emotional binge eating disorder and chronic constipation manifested themselves. Shadow work in therapy is known to help clients face resistance and negative energy that disrupts their lives. Shadow Work is basically Transforming Emotional Suffering into Freedom. You may know it as grief counseling. Having seeing it work in my own personal life when I hear a holistic practitioner ask, "Do you like your life? Do you trust it? Do you find yourself always worrying about the future, or upset about the past, never feeling calm or relaxed, using food to soothe your negative emotions and stressful feelings you are likely not digesting life? Put another way you are not dealing with negative emotions well or handling life hardship as you should. This was true for me. So, now I can truly say yes, I believe it to be true. The stress within your life may be the cause of your chronic constipation issues. Diet, thoughts, and a stressful lifestyle can have an effect on digestion. As long as you're afraid of life and not living in your truth you're not digesting it at least this is my belief. You are free to believe whatever you choose. It just made sense to me.

FACING MY OWN SHADOW

If you have read the Meet Nikki as a Person page or any of my books you know that I experience unhealthy eating while traveling for work that causes chronic constipation that resulted in an anal fissure surgery. Then after experiencing a quarter-life crisis as a victim of stay-at-home mom shaming; traumatic experiences in childhood that left me with abandonment issues; that got triggered when I became a trucker wife; that led to binge eating disorders; my high level of stress; dysfunctional eating; and chronic constipation issues almost lead to another anal fissure surgery. I have been trying to make sense of life from a young age, I spent many years attempting to find a cure for my digestive issues, discover my soul's path, and understand why I experienced all the traumatic experiences I have. It felt as if I was fundamentally flawed or broken in some way.

It wasn't until I saw the link between my present and past traumatic experiences and my attempt to cope with the stress and anxiety stemming from those trauma and other things I was experiencing in my life that cause me to choose food as a way to cope. This behavior and tactic I use was a way to numb or distance myself from disturbing memories, emotions, and my inability to cope and create my life as a new trucker wife and the shocking experience of mom shaming. Some researchers have also suggested that eating disorders are a form of self-abuse, self-blame, and a reaction to shame that has resulted from the trauma. Through the eating disorder behavior, the person with the eating disorder is recreating the pain they felt as a result of the trauma, only this time the individual has control over what is happening rather than having it inflicted on them. I can agree with this statement because I have lived to experience it. Fear of being left behind and abandoned. Feeling unsafe, unimportant, and unloved cause many disoriented thoughts. My binge eating disorder occurred because I ate more in a short amount of time than most people would, while also feeling unable to control my eating. These episodes of eating were also followed by feelings of guilt, embarrassment, shame, and self-disgust because of the way I was being treated. My low vibrational state caused me to live in a state of confusion, depression, and anxiety for many years. The act of being visual and going on social media like Facebook was even hard for me, it was a major trigger.

After learning how to process my emotions and develop a healthier relationship with myself and food my energy shifted and my life changed. I was able to create the life I desired from the law of attraction principles and newfound daily habits. Now, you may or may not have experienced these types of life experiences but I wanted to be real with you and show that a codependent, people-pleasing stressful lifestyle, chronic constipation, distorted thinking, and dysfunctional eating can be a result of emotional life experiences. With that said if you or someone with these issues and need support and help, from a licensing board-certified nutritionist who has actual experience and overcome these issues in life please feel free to call us for further information, with questions about specific issues that relate to emotional abandonment trauma, codependency, approval addiction, emotional eating, skin issues, chronic constipation management or prevention, home organization or to schedule a consultation at our Conyers offices: please reach out you are not alone you can begin to trust life again and begin your journey of facing your shadow, healing your gut, eating habits, life stressors, and help you discover you soul's divine purpose email me at spicedlifeconversation@yahoo.com we will begin to adjust any energetic blockage you may have that is currently preventing you from creating the life you desire and deserve. So What Does All Of This Has to Do With Creating a Wellness Company? A lot Actually!


OUR STORY Our story began in 2008 when Dr. Nikki Letoya White decided to dedicate her life to honoring God and her preordain destiny by using her spiritual gifts Mercy-Showing, Exhortation, and Teaching. In 2015 she redefined our purpose to align with her authentic self after acknowledging she was using her gifts to serve the wrong people. The reason is that codependency is a coping and survival strategy adult children from dysfunctional homes rely on to avoid pain. At times you want to give up, unplug from your responsibilities and not care so much about how others see you, being the responsible person, but you don't want to admit to anyone or yourself that you're feeling resentful, unappreciated, and ignored because you're not able to say "no" to things or set boundaries to accommodate your own needs, goals, or wellness plan. Or live in the complete freedom you crave without feeling overwhelmed and trapped by life, business, or the people in your life or your deep hidden fear of not being able to deal with disappointment or loss due to a fear of abandonment.

Therefore you just defer to, agree with, and please others and escape with food to feel better while suppressing your difficult emotions and stressful lifestyle. At times you may even find it difficult to understand your own emotions. The reason for this is because

If you're codependent your relationships are enmeshed and your boundaries are distorted. You lose yourself worrying about what your partner thinks, needs, or wants and your sense of self is dependent upon external validation. You may find yourself easily falling for people you can fix, or you believe you can heal. The fear of abandonment fuels denial. The childhood neglect you experience caused major trauma in your adult life.


Childhood emotional neglect causes deep hidden wounds that no one can see. The person who has experienced it can feel the hurt from those wounds throughout their life. Childhood is the most formative time of our life. Our sense of self and understanding of the world develops during that time. Our caregivers are not only responsible to keep us safe, protect us, meet our physical needs but also acknowledge and meet our emotional needs. Childhood emotional neglect is when caregivers are not able to meet their children’s emotional needs. They might be trying their best to be as good of a parent as they can be but they are not able to hold space for their children’s emotions. Parents are not able to validate their children’s feelings, they don’t show any interest in their feelings, they are not able to help them understand their feelings and help them learn to regulate their emotions. Lots of adults who experience emotional neglect as kids are not able to recognize it as neglect. Some of them define their childhood as a happy one because they got a good education and their basic necessities were met. For them their emotions being ignored was normal, they have no reason to think that that was not right. Dr. White was that child.


Today she shares her own emotional healing and food addiction journey to help inspire others to heal and rebuild their own lives. Dr. Nikki LeToya White intentions are clear: to create a welcoming experience, safe environment, and tools where people could heal their emotional wounds, and emotional blocks, rebuild relationships with food, rebuild self-worth, discover their soul path, natural spiritual gifts, and building a stronger sense of self without guilt or judgment. Along with learning important steps in the manifestation process.


OUR MISSION

We are passionate about women helping other women. We believe that women that have had similar experiences, can help each other learn and grow. Spiced Life Conversation was designed for women's wellness and empowerment. We provide nutrition and wellness services and create lifestyle management tools and resources to help women in their transition to slow living, healthy living, positive thinking, self-acceptance, work, and family life balance, and overcoming self-doubt as an entrepreneur. This concept came about from my own life experience. Many years ago when I was a stay-at-home mom I was rejected for my choice to become a stay-at-home mom. Never in my life would I have ever thought I would be a victim of mom shaming. The negative commitments and behavior really cause me to enter into a deep state of depression, distorted thinking, and approval addiction behavior. During my recovery, I begin writing, selling Avon, and organizing homes as a way to cope, meet my neighbors, have my own income, and get a little bit of adult interaction away from being around kids 24/7. Working part-time allowed me to overcome my own codependency, distorted mental thoughts, and emotional problems I was dealing with; it also allowed me to have deep heartfelt conversations and introduce shadow work to others that help many women begin their own healing journey along with helping so many people rid their lives of clutter, slowing down a bit, get a fresh start and live a productive lifestyle free from people pleasing, emotional abandonment trauma and wounded betrayed hearts. As I mentioned many times throughout this how I have struggled with chronic constipation while working over the road in the telecommunication field before becoming a stay-at-home mom and had to have anal fissure surgery at a very young age. Things were going well for a while then a health crisis begin again- more constipation issues skin eruption issues and a binge eating disorder relapse. In a struggle to put my life back together and regain my health, I discovered clean living and real whole plant-based clean food eating. After following this new healthy lifestyle, my health eventually recovered and became better than it had been in years!

This frightening experience taught me several things. First, eating organic whole foods and living a slower healthy holistic lifestyle is one of the best things we can do for our bodies and is so much simpler to do than you think as long as you don't obsess over it. Second, nothing is impossible if we put our minds to it and believe in ourselves. Third, most problems in our lives can be corrected by focusing on five important elements- Personal Relationship with God, our mind, body, and a change in our thinking and environment.

These five elements go hand in hand. A cluttered home can lead to a cluttered mind. And a cluttered mind can lead to an unhealthy body. A body full of toxin waste can lead to skin issues that lead to negative thinking about ourselves which can lead to binge eating, negative self-talk, and depression. A lower vibration in mood swings can lead to you guessed it lack of productivity and a cluttered home and office space. We begin to feel low, and alone, and our thinking gets us off track and away from the truth and promises of God. You see how everything really is a whole. By focusing on all five elements and ridding ourselves of everything holding us back in all five areas, we can finally achieve our goals. We defiantly need God's help when we feel hopeless, rejected, and confused. At least I know I do! After my experience with clean living and reuniting with my love of art and writing, I want to share my new attitude with humanity and help people achieve a healthier life through the creative process but also help people achieve the life they want to live on their own terms without approval addiction or the fear of rejection, or shaming whether that be through wellness, organization, productivity slow living, or life direction. That's why we are passionate about women helping women. And how I came up with the CALM Healing Method.
