Part 1 of 3 Episodes: Jeffrey Epstein and Sexual Abuse

–TAP INTO THE POWER OF YOU

In Part 1 of Three Episodes, Darlene Discusses:

The front and center news of the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has brought attention to the issue of the abuse of children. I decided to talk about my historical experience in dealing with this issue.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sexual Abuse is about power and is physical, emotional and sexual abuse in one.
  • Unfortunately, those in power often escape justice for any crime including sexual abuse.
  • When sexual abuse involves family members (incest), it becomes a very complicated issue.
  • Professionals did not recognize its prevalence or destructiveness until the 1970s when victims’
  • Symptoms simulated those of Vietnam Vets. suffering from PTSD.

Sexual abuse is an attempt to rob the soul.

Thank you for lifting the veil on this important topic, Darlene. As someone who had her life threatened, her body sexually abused, and witnessed her best friend’s body being sexually abused when we were really little girls by a stranger (who quickly became known inside of me as the “bad man”), then at 9 years old by a family member, then at 19 in a date rape, I know too well exactly what you are describing in terms of PTSD. The heinous deeds of these men never came to light. I do not know how many other girls or women had their lives profoundly impacted.

Mostly, I want to offer this—that the life I live today be a demonstration of thriving beyond surviving-all that I endured because this layer is only one layer of many other persistent traumas I endured in my childhood, teenage years, and even early adulthood at my parent’s home, at school, and at church. My precious body, being, heart and life remain vibrantly alive, filled with compassion, grace, and dignity. I’m no longer silenced by these experiences. They shaped me, but have not defined me. Body work for trauma resolution, talk therapy, transformational workshops, reading inspirational stories of overcoming, and sharing my stories of healing/transformations remain essential to my thriving life. I’m blessed beyond measure. And I would wish these traumas on no one. No One. May we create a world where children and adults can live in peace, in dignity, in safety, surrounded by love. May we break the cycle from the ancestral patterns of trauma-the ways human beings have attempted to “rob the soul” of other human beings.

Thank you for this powerful podcast and written words, Darlene.

It’s a terrible epidemic Darlene… Epstein was a perverted animal. Harvey Weinstein. Bill Cosby. Anthony Weiner… So many others now being exposed. And beyond them are the vast enablers and participants who take money to look away. Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew… so many other alleged predators out there who don’t seem to get the punishment they deserve because of their positions of power. All you need is wealth and you can lawyer your way out of anything. Just look at O.J. Worse is the trail of victims who seem to get ignored, forgotten or silenced. This has been happening since the dawn of man, but at least now people are starting to speak up and fight back…
