Show Notes

Who said that the stigmas placed on me will define who I am?  Who said that I (or you) must walk, talk, & behave in the stigmas that have been handed down for generations? Not me?  In today's episode, I walk you through 5 strategies of how to dismantle generational stigmas.  I share how to P.O.U.N.D. those stigmas, while also bringing yourself to the carpet. 

It's time to challenge ourselves with the stigmas that we are knowingly or unknowingly perpetuating and passing down and around.  Whew!! This episode is a good one!  The affirmation that kicks us off is I am open , ready, & willing to unlock the endless possibilities within me.

On this 11th episode, Clinical Therapist and Cannabis Expert, Paulette Simone Smith, talks to us about how stigmas surrounding cannabis have reset the foundation of her growing business AND have led to her pursuing a Master's Degree in Cannabis Science & Therapeutics.  Pretty cool right?  We talk everything from education, community, healing, and advocacy, to the differences between coaching and therapy, to the sheer value of sharing and owning your own story...your own journey story!  You remember that from episode 10?  Our deep discussion will shift your thinking, of not only stigmas as a whole, but will also challenge those that you may still hold, particularly around cannabis. 

In this episode's coaching (minute 3:31), the soul-work (minute 6:48) is P.O.U.N.D.ing on the chest in your corner, full of dust, that holds the stigmas you have either heard, attached to others, or have been attached to you.  It's time to shake them up and dismantle them one by one.  Are you ready?  During cocktails (minute 13:16), we give a cheers to our small wins and the nuggets that you pulled away and then in conversations (minute 16:16), Paulette drops some MAJOR nuggets that will get you thinking and acting in a more empowered and educated kinda way!  She aims to shift your thinking on all things cannabis..

S2E26 - Dear Meghan Markle: A Thank You to the Women Everywhere Standing in Their Power (with Lolita E. Walker)

"Dear Meghan" is not only the title of my powerful poem that I share at minute 15.59, but it is also a celebration of one of the Power Women that I am calling out as a woman making history as we speak, specifically for walking into fear with courage by her side.  How often do we struggle to do that? Lemmie ask you this. How often do you truly pause and "see" those around you for who they are and what they are bringing to the table? How often do you acknowledge the hurt that you and others may be holding on to? How often do we gift folks the flowers they deserve in this moment? This episode is a celebration and thank you to the women everywhere who are making history and standing in all of their power. Listen in and grab a few things to shift differently. In this episode,  you'll grab a bit of COACHING, where I gift you 5 considerations to climb out of the B.O.X.E.S. that we are oftentimes place ourselves within, particularly as women, either by choice or by societal norms of expectations that threaten to bound us to the complacency of moments past.  Whether Power Women like Cori Bush, Gitanjili Rao, Stacy Abrams, Kamala Harris or YOUSELF, here is a reminder that you are greatness where you stand in this very moment. If you know a power woman to send this episode to for motivation, inspiration, affirmation and renewed action, please do not hesitate.  You leave with the affirmation that you are making history today so make it count.   The Episode Rundown Welcome (minute 0.14) Affirmation from lolitawalker.com/shop (minute 0.42) is "I am the history that is currently being made."
