Sheer Will Podcast

By Christina Cyphers
I created Sheer Will to share my story with you. To say if I can overcome the obstacles in my path and go do the big scary thing...YOU CAN TOO! As women, we innately feel that we need to always hold it together, we need to always be at our best, and we need to always be in control. Life is messy! Guess's totally okay if we are a little messy too! The world doesn't end if we have a good cry, take time for ourselves, invest in our dreams, or say "I just can't today". Showing up for yourself and loving yourself will completely change every aspect of your life.

All The Guilt
In this episode I talk about overcoming guilt.  Most times as women we take on guilt or blame that doesn't belong to us because we have an underlying issue.  All this does is makes it easier for people who probably aren't great for us to keep hold of us in their lives because they simply know what buttons to push.But once you work through the underlying issue, that button gets permanently deactivated and you get your sense of self worth and self esteem back.  And then the sky is the limit!  Once that monkey is off your back, you can do any single solitary thing you set your mind to.  But you have to do the hard work first. Sheer Will is about me, and others like me, sharing our journey with you to give you hope and strength to know it can be different.  It can get better.  You just have to take the steps to make it so.Be sure to follow me on Facebook to see the show recorded live and get the chance to comment or ask questions after the recording.  Or you can view the episodes I live stream on YouTube after they are uploaded.Support the show (

Low Down Shame
In this episode we talk about the shame that we all carry over from our past and how it poisons and twists our lives.  By dealing with your shame and facing your fear over it, you can begin to heal.  Understand and remember that you are exactly who God created you to be.  You are in the exact place he wants to be.  Shame and fear only feed your depression and feelings of worthlessness and low self esteem.  Let's share our struggles as women and help to lift one another up out of them to be better and do better for one another. Support the show (

Oh, The Grief!
In this episode I talk about my personal experience with grief, loss, depression and how not dealing with any of my other issues all played a part in me having a nervous break down and worse and how I got the strength to rise up out of it.Not dealing with all of the garbage that I carried around because of the prostitution and drug addiction caused me to have a very low opinion of myself.  As a result, I tended to allow the people who claimed to care about me to treat me very badly.  When you mix that with guilt, grief, loss, and depression it becomes a dangerous combination, especially when you hide  it from the people that love you.A lot of people think that pasting a smile on their face and saying everything is ok when it isn't is being strong or noble.  It isn't.  I just makes you feel alone.  Everybody needs somebody.  Had I sought out the support of my family, or my friends, I don't think things would have gotten as bad as they did. But the power of prayer helped raise me out of all of it.  It wasn't easy, and it still isn't all the time, but I get up and show up, and I promise I will never give up, because I know now that I have a purpose and that God isn't done with me yet!If you want to see more of what I do, you can connect with me on my Facebook page.  You can also see live recordings of my podcast on YouTube, or check out my other videos on this channel.   Or you can check out all the things on my website.Support the show (
