  • 171. "The Wolf of Wall Street" Ex-Wife Nadine Macaluso Discusses Trauma Bonding

    As a 22-year-old, Nadine never could have understood what she was committing to when marrying Jordan Belfort, the fraudulent stockbroker infamously known as "The Wolf of Wall Street."Their eight-year marriage began as a fairytale, filled with romantic dinners, expensive gifts, and lavish parties. But once they were bonded, Jordan’s ‘mask’ began to slip, and acts of infidelity, narcissistic abuse, insatiable greed, and uncontrollable drug addiction became Nadine’s living nightmare. Nadine naively believed that their connection was real and that her love could save him, so she remained trauma-bonded until the pain of their relationship became too much to bear. It would be decades before she realized her story resembled thousands of other women’s relational experiences.At 30, Nadine packed up her kids and her curtains and left Jordan, relocating to Los Angeles, California.She began a transformative process of intensive therapy and deep self-reflection, which required facing her pain, admitting and owning her mistakes, and reconnecting with the authentic self she’d lost due to Jordan’s abuse. Through her healing, a passion for helping others was born. She returned to school at 39 to become a psychotherapist and, ten years later, graduated with a PhD in Counseling and Somatic Psychology.Dr. Nae’s private practice quickly flooded with women recounting an all-too-familiar story of abuse with a pathological partner.Her goal of helping people develop healthy relationships took on a life of its own as she realized that trauma bonds were increasingly prevalent and destroying the lives of hundreds of women. Nadine embarked on a twelve-year journey of learning about domestic violence. She combined her academic background with her experience and that of her patients, eventually leading her to become an industry expert in narcissistic abuse, trauma bonds, and complex PTSD.

  • 176. Katia Stern | How to Empower Women

    I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, and moved to Canada when I was 17. I spent much of my 20s and 30s following the path I believed was expected of me: I received a degree in Psychology and Law, and I earned a Master’s degree in International Law. Despite the accolades, I was unfulfilled and wondered if my life had a higher purpose. I started fearing my age, feeling like my life was wasted on unimportant stuff, and it felt like time had ‘tick-taken’ away without me even noticing. Then, I was in a terrifying accident at my family’s cabin outside of Moscow. A fire almost took my life, and everything changed. I can still remember breathing in amid the suffocating smoke and wondering if I was taking my last breath. I survived the fire and was left in wonderment at how little time separated me from death. It shifted my perspective, and after years of wasting time and pursuing what others expected of me, I finally started living for myself. At 42 years old, I decided to forget everything I’d learned that was considered “proper,” instead, I began living by a new rule – the “What if?” rule. I asked myself, ‘What if there’s an answer to my questions on the other side of some crazy idea? What if there’s happiness and satisfaction?’ I taught myself to listen carefully to those risk-taking thoughts, and now I act on them. The results are always a win simply because I believe it is always better to do something, even if you fail, rather than regret not doing it.

    Tom Paladino is a Christian, husband, researcher, and humanitarian who aims to bring Scalar Light healing to the world in order to improve the quantum health of humanity. He began researching Scalar Light during his undergraduate years after developing a deep admiration for Nikola Tesla, the Father of Scalar Light research and development. Starting in 1993, Tom studied research notes and operated Scalar Light instruments developed by another Scalar Light expert, Galen Hieronymus. Tom attributes much of his success today to these two brilliant Scalar Light pioneers.There are two energies in the universe: Scalar Energy and electromagnetic energy. Scalar Energy is divine energy, and the Sun, our solar system, and the stars serve as the "storehouses" for this divine light. The laws that govern Scalar Energy are distinct from the laws that govern electromagnetic energy.Tom Paladino has devoted a significant portion of his humanitarian efforts to helping Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) with outreach programs. NGOs are made up of action-based program developers and a community of like-minded people committed to making sustainable, humanitarian-oriented impacts all over the world.
