I'd love it if you'd introduce yourself, what you do, and what you're working on.
Hey my name is Missy Garcia. I am a sex and leadership coach. I help women to reclaim their juicy nature, discover tools to heal from within and to lead the life they always desired. Many women don’t realise the power that comes from being deeply connected into all of who they are. A lot disconnect from their sexuality and that impacts their ability to lead their life to the fullest. They have unknowingly closed themselves off from the fire, fuel and gifts that make them... them. So, I help women to reclaim this part of themselves. It is for more than just reproductive purposes, or keeping your partner satisfied. So much more!!
How did you get started?
I have a natural ability to lead. It’s innate within me. I also love the human body which lead me to becoming a nurse but it wasn’t until I left my nursing career and became an entrepreneur that my inner world shifted. I built a large business but even during that, I personally felt like I was functioning at 25%. I had underlying core beliefs, fears and doubts that held me back. As I started to do deeper inner work I came to realise that I would allow myself to work on many levels, except going into my sexuality. I held to much pain, fear and trauma here. But those pains, fears and traumas kept presenting themselves in other ways that were preventing me from fully growing, expanding, showing up and leading to my capacity. After working with coaches and still not getting the deeper body-based results I desired, I choose to go into the sexuality domain to heal my disconnection, and through that I discovered it was the key to the worthiness, power, confidence and the strength that I was desiring.
What inspired the work that you're doing?
Since a young girl I felt unsafe in my own body. I can feel sexual energy, well energy in general, and it caused a constriction, especially since I didn’t understand at the time what it was. I just disconnected from my own body and my own sexual energy to try to make myself feel safer. I also experienced sexual trauma which lead to even more shut down in this area. I didn’t feel at home in my body and put many guards up both physically and energetically as defence mechanisms. But in doing this I had a whisper of a voice within me that was telling me I could have more, deserved more and that I could feel safe, whole and vibrant once more. My relationships were suffering especially my marriage and this guarded, disconnected nature was impacting my relationship with my kids and negatively holding me back in business as well. So, I started doing the work to not only heal on a mindset level but on a somatic level. And working with my sexual energy as a power in my own healing has been extremely powerful and transformative.
What is your biggest passion? Do you feel like you're living your passion and purpose?
Biggest passion is being a transformational truth seeker. Funny that just came to me literally in the moment. I am a guide. I am not the person that does the healing for my clients. I guide them to their own healing. I guide them to the place where they can receive the transformation from being with, loving and accepting their own truth. I guide them to come back home into the essence of who they are. To own all of them unapologetically so they can live a sexy, turned on and vibrant life. YES! I am living this purpose.
What is your joy blueprint? What lights you up, brings you joy, and makes you feel the most alive?
Pleasure. All kinds of pleasure. That can come from feeling the sun on my skin especially on a cooler day. Tasting the flavours of my food. Dropping into sexual pleasure with myself or with my partner. Hearing a song and allowing my body to move how it wants to move. Rubbing my fingers through my hair. Pleasure brings me joy and 100% makes me feel not only alive but worthy and deserving of anything.
How do you live intentionally? Are there tools/resources/practices that you rely on to help you stay mindful and grounded?
Intentionality is so much easier for me when I stay out of my head. The circles that my mind can take me in will disconnect me from my flow. When this is at play I come back into my body. Another thing that pleasure is an amazing tool for. I come back home with my breath and breathe down into my womb and pussy as this is where I feel most grounded and at home. When I come from this place I am centred, grounded and deeply connected into me.
What would your younger self think about what you're doing now?
Well depending on how young we are going HAHA. I have done a lot of inner child work especially around sexuality, being seen, making a stand, and leading deep healing. Some younger selves are terrified, and rightfully so, because of what they experienced. Hence, why I have done the deeper work with them. But my rebellious teenager is saying F’ yeah. She wants to change the paradigm too. For women to own their power, pleasure, gifts and lead the world.
Do you have a go-to mantra or affirmation?
I guess my go to mantra is if it falls into that category is just “feel into my body, ask it what it desires and then support that desire.”
What is your biggest dream?
To make an impact on a larger scale. To help women to come back home into their bodies. To feel safe with their power. To have tools to feel juicy, whole, sexy, vibrant and alive. For, pleasure to be the norm. For the shifts in these women to ripple into their circle of influence, creating an up-level within their relationships and thus positively affect the generations that come after. No doubt women are rising, and the paradigm is shifting but, I desire the shift to include the power of women’s sexuality in a deep empowering way.
