OVERFLOW with Kimberly Snider


Grief to Belief and Consciously Living with Cathleen Elle

Season 1, Ep. 9

Cathleen Elle, author of her newest book: Shattered Together

She shares her story, from grief to belief… When her son, Logan, died by suicide, she describes her heartache. In her life she was showing up for others around her, sharing her story, talking to parents and people who were struggling… yet, her heart was tight, she describes how she felt like she was sinking in quicksand. She appeared successful “on the outside” she had yet to heal the trauma of her soul.  The patterns of her childhood, her youth, her relationships, and successful career … were still wrapped up in her shame and blame… she says: I was just existing. 

Today, after taking care of her mind, body and soul and now, making decisions from her heart (that may not have made practical sense at the time) she is sharing her Grief Prescription:

  1. Be. Be in the Moment.
  2. Breathe
  3. Believe. Believe you are not alone.

Cathleen is urging us: know that we have a choice to consciously live. To move through life consciously rather than on autopilot. 

Are you living on autopilot most days?

Please join our conversation about her book: part memoir, part guide and truly inspiring. Cathleen has the strength to, not only share her journey of healing and her encouragement with sincere compassion, she reminds us to step into the pain we have, seek healing rather than simply expect to “get over it!” Her self-awareness will empower you with greater grace, compassion, and love for people around us as well as forgive ourselves so we can truly live and love.

We can see our impact, our hurt and evaluate.She will insist that we do not allow others’ negative words or energy to impact your positive energy.How do you respond?Here is one tip, she says:“I stay in my own lane.”She also recommends EAT, PRAY, LOVE!We discuss equally how it takes a village, surrounding yourself by a strong community, giving back to your community and equally, having the ability, and the conviction to stand on your own feet, solid in who you are, your impact rather than what others may impose upon you.We discuss self love, being able to forgive yourself, give yourself permission and know that you deserve the time to refuel, re-energize or simply have some “me time!”I am profoundly thankful to Lesley for sharing her story, inspiring us with her upcoming book, and for using her voice for so much good in the world.Her encouragement to be grateful even during times of darkness or suffering and feeling alone or incapable, knowing with faith that we are on a journey to wholeness.This is your journey, and the universe is on your side.
