Today we’d like to introduce you to Monica Yates.
Hi Monica, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I actually started by having a food blog on Instagram, and I posted healthy recipes that were made with real ingredients (no sugar, no dairy, no gluten, no vegetable oil). People wanted to know how I made healthy versions of normal food (like chicken nuggets) and this is how I first started gaining my following. I was then hired as a recipe developer and photographer at a food seasoning company based out of Melbourne. I worked for here for a while whilst my business grew on the side. After losing my period, my attention and business naturally turned into focusing more on the trauma, psychology and how your subconscious talks to your ovaries. So, I quit my job and went all in. On my Instagram, I started talking about getting my period back, phases of your cycle, and everything you didn’t but should have learnt about at school. People were hooked and so I kept growing my account as a food blog that supported hormones, and my content was packed with your diet in accordance to your cycle and fertility foods” I then did my life coaching course and by business snowballed. I started helping women get their periods back with a large focus on subconscious beliefs. Then I dived into feminine energy and that’s where I find myself in my business today!
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’s definitely not been a smooth road. The biggest challenges I’ve encountered have been personal, as opposed to business-related. I had a really bad ski accident and was in a wheelchair for three months. This was a serious mental battle and the ongoing two years was a lot. I had three surgeries in the space of two years, was in and out of hospital, and had to learn how to walk again, which was unsurprisingly incredibly emotionally challenging.
I also (like many in this wild ride of 2020/21) haven’t seen my family for at least two years due to covid. I move around a lot so that brings its own unique challenges. Whilst I love change, it is inevitably stressful because you’re moving around all the time and it can be physically and emotionally exhausting. I’ve learnt how to navigate that so it no longer affects me at all. Also as a Sag, I love to travel so I wouldn’t change this for the world.
In business, I find the biggest challenge to be hiring and firing, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Employing someone where there ends up being misalignments and not knowing how to navigate that isn’t easy, so my tip would be to always have a leader coach that knows how to deal with people and guide you.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I’m a trauma healer, period whisperer and embodiment witch. I help women get into their magnetic as fuck feminine energy, and men feel ecstasy and intimacy. Over the years, I’ve become an expert in helping women step out of their masculine armour, tap into their core feminine desires and live a life in alignment. Through the use of trauma healing, inner child healing, womb clearing, womb activation, subconscious reprogramming, embodiment, somatic work and a shit ton of other modalities, I’ve helped thousands of women heal their cycle, reconnect with their period, break their trauma cycles and no longer be triggered by their past.
I also work with men to heal the parts of themselves that are holding them back from fully showing up in their purpose and mission, as well as learning how to expand the nervous system to hold the feminine energy and heal their inner child wounds and trauma that are manifesting in their adult life. This allows men to have deeper fulfillment in their life, and feel more in the bedroom.
What sets me apart is how real I am. There’s no fluff and no bullshit. There’s no one else that I’m aware of in the industry that has linked the effect of trauma and your subconscious beliefs to period issues. Yes, it’s politically incorrect some of the stuff that I talk about, but people love it and I’m proud of it. I voice what many people are thinking but are too afraid to say at the risk of unsettling the status quo. I’m fearless in my ambition to talk about important but taboo topics.
I’m also proud of the fact that I have helped hundreds of women get their periods back and heal their trauma that five years of talk therapy couldn’t even touch the surface on.
I have a range of offerings for women (and men) including a podcast (Feminine As F*ck) and my online magazine (UNEDITED), and also a range of programs for those who want to work with me on a more intimate basis. If you’re looking to understand men, connect to your body and cycle, learn how to manifest easily, make more money, turn your life on, I have a program for everything. I’m truly a jack of all trades. If you’ve got a problem, look at my website and guarantee you’ll find a solution.
Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
I’m all for risk-taking. It’s the only way to get yourself out of your comfort zone and expand your comfort zone so that things in the future feel easy and less of a risk.
When people fall flat on their faces, it’s because they follow risk from their ego and not from their heart. So, my advice here would be to always follow your heart when it comes to taking a big step.
Some people take risks because they have external (or internal) pressure, but if they haven’t worked on any obvious trauma they can go into a trauma response, which means they won’t get the benefit of the risk because they’re traumatized.
Some of the big risks I’ve taken include taking a gap year straight after school, making big investments and moving out of home at 19 because I knew it was the only way my business was going to succeed (I needed the healthy pressure because living at home was a big security blanket). I also love adrenaline, which is a risk in itself. Currently, I’m in Colorado where I’m skiing every day, and that’s a daily risk that I seek to take because I feel alive and on top of the world when I do things I love to do.
