My name is Khalisea and I am the CEO of Healing Encouragement. I am a survivor of physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse. Abuse for me started as a young child when I was molested by a family member. As a teenager I was raped at a house party by someone I knew. At 17 I had two children while living in a drug infested environment. I was sold to a drug dealer who beat me for more than 2 years and during that time my youngest child died. These are just some of the abusive moments from my life and if it had not been for GOD, counseling and a great support system I would not be here today.
I know what it's like to be hurt by people who are supposed to protect you. I know the pain of hearing people say why you don’t just leave and they don't understand how it feels to call out for help and get rejected by people who are afraid to get involved. Healing Encouragement realizes the strength and courage to leave everything and start over and it's even harder with children. I and others will share our testimonies about how the journey to healing was only able to start when we were freed from abusive people and environments. I and others have lived in holistically nurtured environments such as Domestic Violence shelters and Programs that allowed us to feel safe, process everything that happened, and provided access to the resources needed to heal our minds and bodies.
DV shelters and Programs also have classes that taught us how to set boundaries, implement self-care, attain school and career goals, identify safe people, and take back control of our lives by making decisions for ourselves. Since we are stronger now and have the tools to live healthy and productive lives. Healing Encouragement can help you to get stronger to and have the life you deserve to live. The goal with this blog is to facilitate a safe environment to vent, share testimonies, prepare a plan, and provide resources that are around you and nationwide.
The mission is to help you to get to a safe place and you knowing what you say, think and feel matters. You will not be judged, or feel condemned. The option to remain anonymous is up to you. This blog is about healing and providing survival tools that will help you make moves toward freedom and restoration with No Pressure! The choice to leave has to be YOURS! This is also a safe place for anyone who wants to report abuse and would be at risk to do it themselves. That is one of many reasons this is a Private site. Healing Encouragement is about building relationships with survivors of abuse and for those who are in abusive relationships and environments that need support.
The hope is to make everyone aware that Women, Men, Young, and Elderly are all victims of abuse and how as a society we can help. Being molested, beaten, sold, abandoned, starved and broken hearted by the loss of children to the system or death should not be overlooked. It is time for there to be real help for those who want to get out and stay out and have barriers such as fear, no resources, and no support to leave. On this site you are seen, heard, felt and you are not alone..
Some, but not all, community programs also offer:
I am on a journey of finding and accepting myself as I am, and as I was born to be. Have you ever admired something in another individual and thought maybe you could learn something from them? Many of us do, and then we later realize we are everything we have been searching for. All the things you admire about someone else may be manifesting inside of you. Then again, maybe what God has for you is just different. We all have our own walk, our own journey and we must find peace in our own journey. We were born with purpose and destiny, and we have to activate it at some point. I tapped into my power, I found "HER"
