Michelle Jewsbury: Harnessing The Power to Overcome Past Trauma and Take Back Your Life 

Behind closed doors, pain and trauma are often buried deep within the heart, but these silent battles unfold, affecting millions across the globe. Statistics unveil the harrowing reality that an estimated 61% of adults in the United States have experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), such as abuse, neglect, or household dysfunction. Adversity often casts long shadows, seeping into the fabric of daily life and compromising both mental and physical well-being.

The National Institute of Mental Health reveals that approximately 7.7 million adults in the United States are fighting post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) each year. This debilitating condition, born from exposure to or witnessing traumatic events, casts a dark cloud over trauma survivors’ lives, stifling joy, and blocking progress.

Breaking the silence to create social impact

As the curtain lifts on overcoming pain and trauma, there is a collective roar of survivors, warriors, and advocates creating awareness and taking back control of their lives. We reached out to Michelle Jewsbury who is forging a path toward a future where scars become badges of honour and resilience becomes a powerful tool in the healing process.

At a time when pain and trauma can threaten to define our existence and become a pandemic, Michelle Jewsbury rises as a catalyst for change, igniting a revolution of self-discovery, healing, and hope.

The epitome of triumph over adversity and the powerhouse behind Legacy Camp, Michelle teaches her students to never let the past be a comfortable reason for giving up on themselves. She brings along her vibrant spirit that captivates all who cross her path, with love and compassion. Her own story reflects the power of the human spirit, as she has navigated the treacherous waters of domestic violence, the challenges of being an adult orphan, and the grip of addiction.

With her magnetic presence, Michelle creates a safe space where survivors can find solace and rediscover their strength. Her ability to connect with trauma survivors comes from her own experiences of overcoming trauma, and this genuine understanding allows her to create a massive social impact. It is within this connection that survivors find the courage to confront their pain, embrace their resilience, and reclaim their lives.

Through digital courses, legacy coaching, private and business coaching, anthologies, and speaking opportunities, Michelle Jewsbury opens the doors to survivors to overcome their past traumas and harness the power of their stories.  

What sets Michelle apart is not only her unwavering dedication to the well-being of others but also her genuine empathy forged through personal experiences. Having walked the path of pain and resilience herself, she understands the depths of despair, the shadows that haunt, and the glimmers of hope that nurture the way forward.

Through digital courses, legacy coaching, private and business coaching, anthologies, and speaking opportunities, Michelle Jewsbury helps survivors to reclaim their power, and thrive in the face of adversity. Inspiring them to rise above their circumstances and create a future defined by strength, purpose, and boundless possibility, Michelle’s transformative impact is a social movement that society has been long waiting for. 

Jewsbury takes her mission a step further with Legacy Camp, a unique program designed to empower survivors in a tangible way. Participants learn to embrace their past as a catalyst for personal growth and impact. Legacy Camp serves as a transformative stepping stone, equipping survivors with the necessary tools to create positive change and build a legacy of resilience.

Michelle tells us: 

“Legacy Camp is an immersive and transformative program that empowers individuals to leverage their personal stories and experiences to create lasting legacies. It provides a supportive environment where participants engage in workshops, coaching sessions, and activities aimed at self-discovery and introspection. Through guided exploration of their life narratives, clients uncover defining moments, values, and lessons learned that have shaped their lives. They are encouraged to reflect on their passions and aspirations, aligning them with larger causes and defining a purpose-driven legacy. 

Legacy Camp equips participants with the tools and techniques to effectively communicate their stories, crafting compelling narratives that resonate with others and inspire action. It guides them in developing concrete action plans, empowering them to turn their ideas and aspirations into tangible projects or initiatives. Ultimately, Legacy Camp inspires individuals to leave a lasting impact on their communities and future generations, using their personal stories as a foundation for creating positive change in the world. 

Legacy Camp is meant to help trauma survivors to launch, grow or build a nonprofit, mission, ministry, movement or business”. But Legacy Camp is just one of the social impact initiatives that uplift and unite survivors. When asked what are the latest highlights on her vision, Michelle said:

“Our first anthology, Breaking the Silence: Voices of Survivors vol. 1 will be released in December with over 20 contributing authors. Our June 22 Summit, Breaking the Silence debuted to nearly 600 people virtually. Our next summit is Breaking the Silence Summer Summit Series Aug 7 and 8 with over 40 survivor speakers. My second full-length book, Your Ultimate Breakthrough will be released early 2024.”

Guided by her own journey of self-discovery and healing, Michelle imparts a powerful message: that one’s past does not define their future. She leads by example, showcasing the importance of balance and self-care, engaging in activities she loves like biking and scuba diving, and finding solace in the depths of the water. Her dedication to personal well-being permeates every aspect of her work, as she guides survivors to find their own outlets for expression and healing.

With unwavering passion and an infectious zest for life, Michelle Jewsbury is transforming the landscape of healing and empowerment. Through her heartfelt commitment to leave no one behind, she paves a path for survivors to overcome their pain, embrace their resilience, and create a legacy of hope and transformation.

What sets Michelle apart is the fact that she recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to healing. She tells us: “The best thing about us is that we focus on fun. “Faith, Family, Fun” is a motto I learned from a mentor and I live by it daily. We teach that life is meant to be lived and enjoyed to the fullest. Jeremiah 29:11 states: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Harnessing the power of choice to inspire change, one life at a time

When she is not speaking, writing or teaching, Michelle is biking, scuba diving, and engaging in mindful lifestyle choices to find a healthy life balance. “Balance is tricky. I always take time to enjoy activities I love like biking and scuba diving. My favorite destress activity is being in the water 30 meters below the surface. When clients get triggered, we always show them that they can express themselves through physical activity, writing exercises or even music.”

She is encouraging survivors to channel their emotions positively, and to manage triggers and emotional distress through tailored writing exercises, artistic expression, and the power of music, to reclaim control over their lives.

It is not unusual for Michelle to receive heartfelt messages from survivors who have experienced profound transformation through her programs and coaching. Nicole Mashingaidze expressed her gratitude, stating, “Hey Michelle, I don’t think I ever really thanked you. So much has changed for me over the past year, and most of it is because of being connected to you. Not only did you push me when I needed to be pushed, but you listened when I needed an ear. You also introduced me to the most amazing people to help move my business forward. I am forever grateful.”

Michelle Jewsbury’s personal journey of triumph over adversity allows her to empathise deeply with her clients. Having walked a similar path of pain and trauma, she nurtures a unique understanding of their struggles. This genuine connection forms the bedrock of Michelle’s solution, ensuring that survivors receive compassionate support and guidance from someone who has overcome similar obstacles.

Michelle helps survivors overcoming past trauma and pain understand that their past does not define them. By recognizing their power of choice, they can shape their responses to life’s challenges and transform their trauma into a catalyst for personal growth. Through self-realisation, survivors discover that their pain can be harnessed for good, and broken pieces can be woven into a new story that shines as a guiding light, illuminating the way for other survivors to rewrite their own stories. Her vibrant spirit and remarkable clarity of purpose are not just the source of inspiration to overcome past trauma but the tool set to create social impact.
