This week on the #Wednesdaywellbeing show I'm chatting with Antonio De Sousa.
Anthony is a Self Belief & Self Joy Facilitator, mentor and coach specialising within spiritual frequency areas of self love, self care and self mastery.
He’s the author of a brilliant brand new book that was launched just a few weeks ago.
Antonio, formally a plasterer, in his new book gives his true account of what it is like to be a man who once hated himself.
He acknowledges that life hasn’t been easy for him, codependency and a predisposition for drugs, and a break up that led him to question if he even wanted to continue living.
Antonio has embarked on improving the fragile relationship he had with himself, in his debut book; 📚The Lockdown on Self-Love📚 Antonio promotes transparency and advocates that vulnerability is real strength. He gives voice to sensitive subjects that many men have suffered with and certainly don't talk about.
He loves to share these principles with others, with a dose of personal development and spirituality, to inspire others to realise that the most important relationship there will ever be, is the one you have with yourself.
He is also a proud father of two young children.
In his book Antonio wears his heart on his sleeve. One thing that screams out from each chapter and each page of this book, is the realness through the way he expresses his experiences from his perspective.
He quite refreshingly owns his part throughout from very early childhood having to flee South Africa, to landing in a foreign land in Portugal, to then finally relocation within England.
I can only imagine what an experience it must have been to revisit some of the tough times in his life facing them head on and writing them down.
He has let go of traumatic life experiences, childhood sexual trauma, violence, prison exposure, drugs, illusions, educational challenges like dyslexia, in such a creative inspiring way.
From challenging the status quo on mental health, spirituality, awakening, living an authentic life, its all in his book along with
the depths of chaos he experienced.
Now out in public within the world spreading his very special message of self empowerment, self belief, self joy, and ultimately self love, his presence is a real gift
