Divinely YOU is an organization founded on the realization in order to heal the effects of abuse is by first ending self-abuse.
Divinely YOU began with two objectives:
- To raise awareness around abuse and ways to end it.
- To give survivors scholarships for those who are done surviving and ready to live beyond the backlashes of abuse such as low self-esteem, self- doubt, limiting beliefs and victim mentality through courses, coaching and personal development.
The founder Antiqua Lisha is a child abuse prevention advocate and has spoken out about childhood sexual abuse, prevention since she herself became a survivor at age 13. She has written books and coaches clients to reclaim their power and rewrite their stories to live their lives as worthy, gifted, and complete.
By the age of 18 years old 3 in 5 people have survived abuse. Some have experienced sexual abuse, others mental, others physical but the overwhelming numbers don’t lie. But that is not the problem. The Problem is that of those 3, they are 75% more
likely to experience abuse again, by either remaining the victim, abusing themselves (food, substances) or becoming an abuser themselves.
This cripples their lives. It affects us all. People struggling with the backlashes are more likely to suffer from anxiety, depression and other dis-eases, this makes it challenging to be truly successful at work or at home.
One of the most common BLOCK stopping survivors and victims’ from learning new ways of being is money. Through scholarships for courses, live events and private coaching that we raise by your generous support and public awareness Celebrate YOU concerts worldwide. They CAN afford private coaching, alternative therapies and educational support to take their power back and leave the past behind and step into their dreams.
Over the past 8 years as a coach serving survivors Antiqua Lisha realized that her clients where some of the most dynamic, brilliant men and women she had ever met.
There were 2 things standing between them and a “normal” life.
1. They were broke and broke… feeling broken had stopped many of them from gaining the proper footing they need to get the support and coaching they desired to move forward.
Solution: At Divinely YOU we raise money through donations, live events and proceeds from book and program sales from our sponsors to help these survivors thrive by providing fund matching scholarships.
2. They have forgotten or never known that they are amazing, capable and talented. They have forgotten how to celebrate themselves, their accomplishments and their lives. And in doing so they are struggling to keep their dreams alive.
Solution: At Divinely YOU we end abuse by doing the opposite of abuse. Abuse is controlling, demeaning and hurtful.
At our fundraising events, we celebrate YOU with music, self-empowerment workshops and positive support. We know how important it is to retrain the brain to work for us and learn new skills to replace the negative tapes so many survivors battle every-day. Our events are designed to not only raise money for scholarships for ongoing support and awareness but consciousness and love as well.
“It is our intention to give our 100,000 4 Step programs, and host 33 Celebrate You concerts and public education events to boost self-esteem and get those in need of it, the tools, coaches and community they require to step away from the cycle of abuse and end it once and for all. For themselves, their families and the future generations. And we need your donation to help us get the word out and gift these courses and scholarships” Antiqua Lisha says.
“You have one life to live and you are ready to live it YOUR WAY inside and out!”
