I am Cecile Edwards – Owotoroshe, founder and creative director. I am Reiki Level II practitioner, have my Masters degree in Elementary Education. I study history, hypnosis, myself and family, psychology, I am an intuitive, healer, womanist, educator, MENTOR, naturist, business woman, world traveller, mother, wife – juggling the many tasks of a woman while steadfastly committed to assisting women globally in their personal growth and parenting awareness.
I have worked with women, young mothers, CHILDREN/youth for over 10 years in many capacities but often as a mentor with many resources. My unique blend of experiences in education and SOCIAL services I have noticed not only the urgency for intergenerational conversations and healing and conversations around sacred/deep self care – all of which I bring into my coaching.
Growing up I rarely felt supported, only criticized and chastised. Judgement was a huge part of my upbringing and as a sensitive person I internalized the criticism – causing me to develop anxiety which over years of accumulation led to depression. Everything came to a head when while at work one day I suffered a major panic attack. I could say it came from nowhere but the truth is I was running on empty for YEARS, not caring for my mind, emotions and spirit. I worked 3 emotionally draining jobs and was a single parent. My relationship with the divine was reactive so that when I needed something I asked instead of consistently practicing thankfulness and manifesting my desires. I felt stuck and helpless as a woman and mother because I was not taking responsibility for my life by directing it, but instead allowing the circumstances of what others wanted for me to consume me. This way of being prior to motherhood consumed me even more deeply as a mother.
The beauty is that I knew there was more and I was always willing to access my higher self irrespective of what others tried to tell me about what they thought I should be, do and have – as a woman, mother and force of this world.
As a woman freeing myself from an unexamined existence which included a mother wound, societal expectations and emotional pain meant releasing the generational baggage I had been given so I could see myself – my essence – clearly. I transferred all the guilt and shame I felt for not meeting these standards to my parenting which amplified the self-abuse through over/under working, over/under eating, over/under exercising and over judging myself for every decision. I reconnected with the child who was hurt, told she had to be skinnier, lighter, more proper, dress a certain way in order to be appealing, successful and happy. The opportunity to focus on my healing and re-define myself presented and I took it. I realized some powerful lessons about motherhood and evolving from within. MommyEvolve was born in this time because from speaking to other women I realize far too many of us experience these very feelings without an outlet to express our emotions since we are constantly advised that we should “push through” and “be strong”. While we must fight I learned more powerful tools that empowered me as a mother and woman instead of drain my existence to leave me feeling stuck and unsuccessful. To free yourself and change the core beliefs that got us here shifts things generationally.
The MommyEvolve Methods are unique and impactful and will reunite you with your essence, your inner child that may have been lost through all of the “lessons” you’ve been given through the years. I am now commanding my household with peace and ease, manifesting my goals and desires, no longer stressed and angry, and living in a empowered space.
