Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Espinal.
Hi Stephanie, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
My journey started outside of my therapists’ office five years ago when I realized that what was truly affecting my mental state wasn’t that I hated who I was but that I disliked the version of myself I was pretending to be. My whole life, I masked who I was because I believed I had to look, speak, behave, or live a certain way to succeed, be loved, and accepted. These beliefs all stemmed from colonial programming. And even though I didn’t know the term for what I was experiencing then, I knew I wanted to heal deeply and discover who I was underneath the programming. So, after that day, I decided to dedicate my life to self-discovery, healing, and freedom. I wanted the freedom to be and live authentically. So for the next couple of years, that’s what I did. I went to a 10-day silent meditation retreat in India, traveled all over the world, read all the self-help books, got certified in holistic healing modalities, developed my spiritual abilities, etc. And in 2019, I became so empowered by my intuition, Spirit, and who I was that I decided to quit my job and move to Mexico. I moved to Mexico with only $3,000 in my bank account, having no idea what my life would look like or where my income would come from. I know all of this sounds insane but I trusted my intuition and desire to create a life that honored who I was. And now I’m a Spiritual Life & Business Coach that guides other Latinas towards their healing, expansion, and freedom. Whatever freedom may mean to them, they get to define it.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. Entrepreneurship is difficult and even more so when you’re BIPOC. I’ve also had to work through a lot of limiting beliefs, heartbreak and many many identity crisis’. However, what anchors me is knowing who I am and my purpose. I know my purpose is to help Latinas decolonize their mind, access their power and create the life they desire. My mission is to provide Latinas the tools for complete freedom.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m a Spiritual Life & Business Coach that guides spiritual Latinas through colonial deprogramming and towards creating a soul-led life and or business that honors who they truly are. Using the worlds leading mindset techniques, science, spirituality, and BIPOC focused personal development tools to heal and reprogram their subconscious minds. I specialize in colonial deprogramming which is the deprogramming of mental conditioning caused by colonization that affects your beliefs and being. Colonial programming causes you to think that there is a “right” way to look, live, speak, behave, be successful, loved, and accepted. It causes fragmentation from both your primal and cosmic nature. Colonial deprogramming is so powerful, that is why I have devoted my life to helping other women deprogram, heal, discover who they are beneath all the programming, and access their power and souls purpose so that they can create the life of their dreams.
I am currently seeing private clients through my signature program Sovereign Woman, it is a 3-month journey of discovery, healing, expansion, and creation. I am also launching Sovereign Collective on September 1st. It’s a self-paced online course that guides women through the same Sovereign Woman journey that I guide my private clients through, and it also provides a community for the women that join the collective. I am very excited about that!
What was your favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memory would have to be spending all my Summers in Michoacan, Mexico. As a child, I would spend the entire Summer in Mexico visiting my grandparents and extended family. At the time, my parents didn’t have a house there so we stayed at my grandfathers’ house, “La Casa Grande” – The Big House. We called it the big house because it felt so big, but thinking about it now, I think we also called it that because everything there felt big – who we were, our family, our parties, the love. Running around my grandfathers’ house and playing with my cousins is my favorite memory. In a way, I grew up there. I am so grateful for my upbringing and my roots.
