How Pain And Suffering Can Be Transformed Into Gifts For Your Soul With Rev. Dr. Anthousa Helena

I’m here with Rev. Dr. Anthousa Helena of Southern Florida. Welcome, Anthousa.  Thank you. Anthousa is going to talk to us about transforming our pain and suffering into the gifts that are here for our soul. She likes to say, “There will be times of pain, but suffering is optional.” I love that quote from you. Anthousa was part of the While We Were Silent Project. I got a note on Facebook of one of the posts about the launching of that project. It was an interview series with women who were survivors and thrivers of sexual trauma. What Anthousa is going to be talking about is take your pain, transform it from suffering into the gifts that are there for your soul so that you can help other people and help yourself along the way. This was a project for women who had experienced sexual trauma, but transformed their pain, done their own healing work and each had different modalities to share with people on how to heal. Anthousa was a part of that. The interview series was also turned into a book which is available on Amazon, While We Were Silent: 12 Experts Share Their Stories of Healing From Sexual Trauma. Her story is powerful. To witness her transformation is empowering and healing in and of itself. She is a walking example of this and it’s beautiful what she’s come through. She’s got her personal experience and journey. She’s got a whole bunch of professional training and certifications. She brings a lot of pieces together. She puts it together in a comprehensive way that rolls out the healing. Her process is fabulous. For that reason, this episode is one of my favorites. I don’t want to name favorites of all of the episodes, but hers was close to the top. Dr. Anthousa Helena is the Founder and Developer of Sollite Integrative Medicine.

Who Is It That Is Suffering?

I started finding peace through exploring my relationship with pain and suffering.  At first this was through asking why it was so hard for me to resist its pull.

Free the “ME”

Let go of the narrative of your life - all of it - the past, present and future; the stories of what was, is or may be. It is imperative to move on. So be done with your stories and your narratives. In the end all stories have to dissemble themselves anyway.


Have you noticed the things you try over and over again to change about yourself are the hardest to change and most often they never do? Life is tough, it has its challenges, no one escapes them. It is the tumultuous nature of existence.


A spiritual break is a common outcome of trauma. Trauma separates you from your Self and causes a split. Every human being experiences some sense of separation from Higher Self but with traumatic events the human ego disconnects the logical mind from the compassionate heart in order to survive.

We Are Love

One relatively misunderstood spiritual path today is the way of the Sufi. As a longtime journeyer on the path of Sufism, the principles and practices I received in my Sufi context were those of Unity, the loving nature of the Creator, the importance of living a balanced life, the practices of prayer, meditation, and of being in service.

Spirituality & Illness

The underlying condition of illness reflects spiritual conflict. There is a basic element of feeling separated from Self, the Divine, God, the Source, the Perfect One, Higher Self, whatever name or label is given to being connected and in tune with one’s true nature.
