How can pivotal moments solidify your life’s purpose?

In this episode, I am joined by Nikki T, founder of MavenHeart and former ballet dancer-turned-diet myth buster, as we discuss navigating life’s unexpected pauses, which can lead to transformative experiences, resilience-building, and spiritual and physical growth.

Often, we find comfort in familiarity and fear the unknown. However, stepping out of the box fosters personal development, authenticity, perseverance, and
new opportunities. This leaning towards the uncomfortable is the key to upleveling your frequency and becoming the best version of yourself. I urge you to take moments to reflect and listen to your inner voice. Your intuition is your superpower.

Join us in this week’s episode of The Power In The Pause: Navigating Life’s Forced Pauses: Finding Resilience, Spirituality, and Purpose Amidst Adversity with Nikki T.

So. Without further ado, let’s dive into today’s episode where I am joined by my dear friend, Nikki T. Hello, Nikki. How are you? I’m doing great, Wendy. Thanks for having me on. Oh, I’m so happy that you are here. You guys, Nikki and I go back, our friendship goes back a couple of years and, and we’re really excited to talk to her today because we both have sort of been along this parallel.

One that we’re both navigating in similar fashions, but also, you know, putting our own special sauce into the mix of it. But what we’re going to talk about today is something very near and dear to both her heart and mine, and that is navigating life’s Forced pauses and how it is that she has found resilience, spirituality, and purpose amidst any and all adversity that has come her way.

And what Nikki is going to share with you guys today is some of her transformative experiences. And just to give you guys It’s going to be from going from facing life altering health challenges at a very young age to ending her ballet career and then transitioning through a divorce and through each one of these particular experiences.

She has used them as a way to discover more about herself, to Spiritually awaken her highest and best and ultimately leading into the creation of her business, Maven Heart. And so Nikki is the founder of Maven Heart, which is a collective community and movement dedicated to empowering 40 plus women to reclaim their narratives.

And I love this particular movement that Nikki is creating because she’s really looking to create a cultural shift challenging many of these outdated norms that have long decayed. It’s a way that women live the way that women age as well as perceive ourselves and instead to focus on a sisterhood where courage, new interests, and bold aspirations are nurtured.

As I said previously, Niki is a former professional ballet dancer, which I think is so amazing about you, um, to a leading authority on breaking free from the diet culture and Maven heart under her stewardship has really become the sanctuary for women over 40. 40 who seek to embrace their health, wellness, beauty, fashion, and a life filled with adventure and travel.

I mean, who doesn’t want that? So Nikki, welcome to the podcast. I just, I adore you and I’m so incredibly grateful that you are here today to share your story, to share your passion behind Mavenheart. And so as we dive into today’s episode, I would really love for you to share with our audience using your own words, how it is that these pivotal moments that I’ve shared with our audience today is really led you to pause and particularly, you know, how you have seen those pauses benefit you starting at such a young age.

Yeah. Well, first I want to thank you for having me on your show because when you were talking about the pause and I was like, yeah, I think I’ve been really forced to pause. Like there’s no, like there was no option in these pauses in my life. Yes, I’ve had smaller pauses, but yeah, the first one really came up.

When I was 17 years old, I was very active in the ballet company at that age. And just, you know, at 13, I declared to my parents that I wanted to be a professional ballet dancer. So like I was very in it and I woke up one morning, I was actually at my brother’s house. We were supposed to go to New York city to get costumes made for this piece that we were in, so I live in New Jersey and I got up and I could not move my body.

I mean, like I couldn’t even reach to the phone. This is back in the day we didn’t have cell phones, right? Couldn’t even pick up the phone to call my dance teacher and say, I can’t go. And there was another thing, like they were very disciplined in the sense of like, you didn’t call unless you were on death’s bed.

Right. So I really was, I, as a 17 year old could not get up. I couldn’t move my joints every, every day. I wound up being in the hospital three days later, the doctors were like, well, what is going on? We don’t have no idea what like what is really happening. I wound up in children’s hospital and they still didn’t find out what was wrong until months later.

But what is interesting is while I was there, I look back on this whole experience with kind of laughter and kind of disassociated from it because I had such a bonding experience with my mom because she was taking me to the hospital and I had three older, two older brothers and older sister. My dad at the same time was in another hospital getting his hip done.

So like she had a lot going on, right? So, but the doctors basically told me that I wouldn’t be able to see because I had such bad conjunctivitis and I probably wouldn’t be able to walk. So nine months later. They did figure out what I have. I have a type of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis that is flared on by stress.

But nine months later I was at Radford University dancing on scholarship in the dance department. So what is interesting is later on in my life talking to coaches, one of them suggested that this was kind of a forced pause. It was my way of escaping the environment that I was in because it was not healthy, right?

And to, for my body to kind of be like, Hold up, we’re not doing this, right? And it allowed me to, in essence, escape what I was dealing with as a teenager in this ballet world, right? And then again, it was like, but there was a miracle. Like I couldn’t squeeze toothpaste out. I had to have somebody to walk me to the bathroom.

Um, I couldn’t do anything myself. My mom was telling people that would come in and see me. They’re like, don’t cry. Like she didn’t know. I mean, I think she thought I was going to die, but so that was definitely the first forced pause that as again, as I look back, I always kind of thought of humors cause we had some humorous things going on with my mom, but as I now I’m more aware.

adult, I’m like, wow, I was really disassociated from that whole experience. Right. But when that happened, you know, that did, I think it didn’t affect me until way later on in life where I was diving into the dynamics of like, and I, you know, I love that you love that I was a ballet dancer and I loved that I was a ballet dancer, but there’s a whole other ugly side that I had not uncovered personally until.

The trauma that goes on, you know, the way you’re taught how to eat, the way you’re taught about how to look at your body, the outside validation that you’re constantly looking for. So beautiful career, loved it, but there was also a dark side to that. But if I hadn’t gone through that, Then I wouldn’t have been set up for other things in my life.

Right. Yeah. So moving forward, the, after I ended my ballet career, I was actually dancing a lead role at Pennsylvania ballet and Pennsylvania ballet has been around for years. It’s a very well known ballet company in Pennsylvania. And I had injured my foot dancing with the director. Of the company and I tweaked it.

So when I was doing this performance, I had had that attached, but I also came out on the wrong cue. So this is like a major no, no. In the ballet world, you know, your cues, right? I definitely played it off. It was, it was one of those pieces where it was a modern piece where I could play it off. But for me walking off stage, when I finished that, there was a level of.

Shame. And like, did you do that? Like, this was the pivotal point in my ballet career. Like I could have joined the company. I could, you know what I mean? There’s so many things I could have. And for me, it was a forced pause in the sense of like, no, I don’t want to do this anymore. I don’t want, you know, and, and then I shifted into physical therapy.

So that was definitely a forced shift. Going through physical therapy was awesome. Loved it. I loved every career that I’ve ever had. And I can’t wait to see how that progresses forward. Cause it’s just going to be awesome. But being married. And choosing the person that I decided to spend 20 some years with it, looking back again, it was very obvious who I was being to attract that person.

Again, it was one of those experiences for me, almost like being sick at 17. It’s like I was married and I thought I was doing the right thing. I thought I was being the wife. I thought I was being the committed partner, you know, and, and all the aspects that, We’re taught as children right and depending if you grew up like I grew up catholic So it was very much ingrained that you don’t you don’t get divorced right unless It’s really bad.

And even then, you know, sometimes just that, right. So I know for me, being in the relationship that I was in, it just, it was eye opening because I didn’t realize what was going on. And when I did become aware, it was like, I always describe it as waking up from a dream and into a nightmare. And then once I realized what was actually happening, I, Really, I sunk down to rock bottom and that was definitely a Porsche pause.

Like it was, it was very illuminating, but. Grateful that I went through that because there was this element of spirituality that had woken up in me. Like I said, I was grew up Catholic, but I did not practice, but this whole, like, I can’t even describe it. I know we’ve had conversations off about it, but it’s just the spiritual journey that it’s like, if you talk to people about They’re kind of like, really, like, what is that?

But there’s this element of like belief in it and the journey that you go through. So like my whole spiritual awakening was so much more in depth and so much more emotional, like so much more than the connection I had growing up being Catholic. So all those points in my life that were kind of forced on me.

And I used forced because it was like, I, have you ever heard the expression, like, God will knock softly. And then if you don’t hear, they like, you know, they pound you down. If not their Mack truck comes in and just takes you out. Right. So those were Mack truck experiences. But again, I’m grateful for all those experiences because I wouldn’t be doing the things that I’m doing.

Like if I had not experienced what I experienced in the ballet world, I would not be teaching people how to lose weight in the healthiest way that they can. Right. And also a very sane way, right? Mentality wise, being forced out of the ballet world, right? Cause that was my whole thing. My whole world revolved around ballet.

I mean, to the point where I wouldn’t wear open toed, toed shoes because I was afraid somebody was going to fall on my feet and like a mess. Yeah, so it was pretty, pretty ingrained. But again, everything that I’ve gone through has led me up to be the coach that I am. And Mavenheart is a perfect example of, of someone who is looking for more, right?

Looking for that next chapter. For me, I turned 50 in the summer and I’m going through this divorce, going out on my own. And it’s really like, It is available to you. Don’t feel like you have to be complacent or satisfied with where you’re at. You really can take those next steps and move forward in whatever you desire.

Yeah. And I mean, your stories are, are so incredibly powerful. And you know, what I’m also hearing you say is really, Each one has sort of built upon the next where it’s almost like, and I talk about this a lot too, it’s like the speed at which you learn the lessons are coming faster and faster. While they may not still feel, you know, fast enough, like, why didn’t I learn this?

Two years ago, why didn’t I learn this 10 years ago, the acceleration at which you, you know, you start seeing the lessons, the ways in which you are awakening, right? What I’m also hearing is that there’s not, it’s not that there’s judgment in it. It’s, I’m so grateful that this has already happened for me and that.

I now know not to make this mistake. And I also get to teach this. I also get to share this with people so that I can help other people avoid the pitfalls that I went through or to help them recognize those moments that we tend to ignore, right? Those signs from the universe. And so what I’m hearing is that a lot of what you’ve learned is resilience.

And that it’s really helped you to further solidify the purpose, your purpose, and how it is that you serve. And so, what would you say are a couple of those highlights, of those key lessons that, that you learned, that you now teach, and that you really embed into the foundation of your community? Great question.

And I also want to add to, before I answer that is, I don’t think the lessons ever stop. No, they don’t. Yeah. And I have to be honest, the past, I would say three months I’ve really been in it. Right. So, and I almost feel like there’s a thought that keeps circulating in my head. Like the universe is just punking me.

Right. I know the universe is not punking me, there’s a lesson to be learned, and I actually think I discovered it right before our call, which is awesome, but for this interview, but I want to offer like, there’s never like an arrival, right? You level up, but I still think there’s always going to be growth.

There’s always going to be something new to discover about yourself that levels you up to make you, Be the better version of you so you can be better to other people, right? So some of the things that I definitely teach in my clientele is I mean i’m an expert on if you want to lose weight for the last time.

I am your girl like come call me Because it’s not about the food. It’s not about the workout It’s what i’m finding is is coaching hundreds of women on how to lose weight in thousands now, but it’s understanding that it’s not about that number that you want. It’s about the, the identity, that person that you want to be living in that body, right?

And who you’re being. So with Maven Heart, I really made the shift in, yes, I’m still helping people live in the body they want to live in, whether that’s weight loss or whether that’s someone who’s already got the body that they want, but they’re in this like hamster wheel. Of like, I gotta keep up. I gotta keep, you know, like obsession about like if I even slip one day, I’m just, it’s going to go on a crack.

But also stepping into that next identity of like, it doesn’t matter where you are in life, whether it’s you want a new career, you want a new relationship, you want a better relationship. Again, it’s all, we all want these things because we want to feel something, right? We want to feel a certain way. And we think by having that, we’re going to get the feeling.

So one of the biggest things I teach my clients is like, you have all that now, like it’s embodied in your body already. It’s just peeling off the layers of onion or however you want to look at it. Like if you’re like the lump of clay and you’re designing the beautiful goddess statue that you are, like.

It’s all inside of you and it’s really just discovering and, and having conversations where we’re in diving into like, what, what from your past are you bringing forward, right? What projections are you making about your future and how that all relates? We don’t spend enough time in the now, right? In this, in the pause, right?

In the moments of silence between all those crazy thoughts that we have, like there’s magic between those thoughts and just embracing this knowledge. I know for me, because. I didn’t think like this 20 years ago, right? Like to have this knowledge, it just blows my mind because I think 20 years ago, of course, We’re younger and we think we know it all like yeah, the concepts that I know now I’m just like wow, like there’s so much more to learn is so much more to do and be more in particular so Mavenheart really is bringing that element of Women who are really looking for more out of life not because they want to fill some hole that they’re not Getting or some emotional need but more in like for me.

It’s like my mission is really to ding the universe I want to make such an impact on women I don’t want any woman to ever feel like they ever have to hate themselves skinny ever again or be Afraid of not stepping out and doing the things that light you up. Like if you want to be a rock star Why are you not on stage?

Like, what is it that’s holding you back from doing all the things that you say you want to do?

Yeah.

Before we continue with today’s episode, let’s take a moment to reflect on what we’ve discussed so far. We’ve explored the transformative potential of life pauses and the importance of embracing them to unlock your true potential. Remember these moments of reflection and growth are stepping stones towards creating that intuitively designed life that you desire.

So in this moment, let’s take an opportunity to pause. Breathe and consider how you can apply what you’ve learned so far to your own journey. Now, let’s dive back into our conversation where I will continue to explore the power within life’s pauses and how they can guide you towards a life filled with purpose and authenticity.

I love that and I think the biggest piece of this too is that we feel stuck in the communities that we’ve either created or we feel obligated to stay in versus really feeling the empowerment to change The communities that you’re choosing to stay in. I mean, you know, and maybe you can relate to this and I want to put words in your mouth, but, you know, the, the circle that I ran in when I was married looked one way.

The circle that I ran in when I was newly divorced looked one way. And now with the communities that I’m a part of today, they look very different and I’ve had to adjust and reframe certain friendships with people in my life because based on where I’m at and honestly, based on how awakened I am spiritually, I am out of alignment with those other communities.

And so I would love for you to dive a little bit deeper, if you would, about. Like how it is that your own spiritual transformation and what it is that you’ve been going through, how that has supported you in your healing and how you also see it transforming the women that you are also supporting.

Yeah, I think for especially women.

There’s this level of not just staying in your comfort zone, but there’s this level of safety that we feel because we were taught that growing up that you need a man to make you feel safe or a partner or whatever you need to stay within this framework that we’ve created. You need to look a certain way.

You need to have these kinds of conversations with your friends. Right. And I think there’s also this almost a shame element of like, If you’re still not friends with your high school friends, like, or, or people from your past, then there’s something like an egotistical thing. Like I had a client who, so a lot of, when I coach clients on weight loss, we’re not even talking about weight loss.

We’re talking about right. All the things that are going on in their life. So this one client, she had had this circle of high school friends and she was in her past her 50s and you know, I just got the sense of like she was like just holding on to them because that’s what is expected. And I was like, you don’t resonate with these conversations anymore, right?

Every time you walk in, there’s a negative, like you walk out feeling negative about yourself or about something. And I think, again, as women, we’re nurturers, we want to not make anybody’s feelings hurt, but there is this element of when you start learning these lessons, when you start leveling up and awakening and stepping into whatever spirituality looks like for you, you’re not going to have the same conversations.

Like, so I talk about it with people that go through my weight loss program. I said, at some point, those diet or conversations that you have sitting around the table where it’s like, Oh, what did you eat? What diet are you on? Did you work out today? Like all these and body shaming and all that stuff. Those conversations will feel like nails on a chalkboard at some point.

Yeah. Cause you don’t want to, you’ve, you’ve leveled up. You’ve, you’ve, you’ve moved and it’s not a. It’s not to put them down and it’s not to say you’re above them. It’s just, you just think differently, right? It’s a lateral move if you want to look at it that way. But there is this structure, I think that is put on us that says you have to stay in this little box.

And if you decide to get out, you know, and then there’s that whole, like you decide to take that step out and your friends are like, no, have you ever heard of the crab effect? No. What is that? So the crab effect is you put crabs in a pot. Yeah, um, a whole bunch of them. One of them will try to start climbing out.

the others will pull the sucker back down. So none of the crabs can escape. Now, if they were smart, they would just chain up and everybody could climb out. Right. I mean, they could really, yeah. So this is, look it up. There’s the, it’s called the crab. Okay. But it is very similar. When you try to step out of that, that circle, you’re going to feel really uncomfortable.

Right? Primitive brain tells you you’re leaving the tribe, you’re going to be either shunned or you’re going to die. Right? And both of those are not good. So there’s this element that keeps pulling us back from our past, as far as primitive brain, right? The way we think keeps pulling us back into this circle of people.

And you keep trying to pull out. And every time you do, you have these conversations and you feel like you’re getting sucked in. For me, the perfect example is going home to my family’s house. having celebration parties, whatever it is, I clearly see the dynamics of walking into that door. I am now the eight year old youngest child of the family.

Right? So you, you kind of revert back to the childhood version of yourself. Same thing when you’re in these other relationships, these circles of friends. So the question becomes, how do you, how do you step out and become the version of the person that you want and deciding, are you, are, are you leaving those friends behind?

Right? And I love, I, I don’t remember the exact quote, but basically it was like, if they wanted to level up with you, they would, right? So that you’re not leaving them behind. They’re choosing not to go with you. Right? Right. I love that reframe. Yeah. So, for anybody who is trying to make a difference in the world, and it doesn’t have to be saving third world countries, it could be something as simple as, you know, just making somebody happier.

Like, when you decide to step out of what’s comfortable for you, there’s going to be a lot of, you know, Uncomfortableness, right? And a lot of growth that you’re going to experience. But again, on the other side of that is what you want. So you can decide to stay small and stay in these circles and not grow.

And that’s fine. There’s no judgment on my part. But if you’re someone who’s really yearning to step out and to make an impact in this world, no matter how big the ripple is, you need to be uncomfortable. Yeah.

I always say like, if you are comfortable, you’re not growing that it’s really in the discomfort is when you are transforming and it’s when you are transitioning and up leveling and, you know, like you said at the beginning of the episode, right?

Like we’re always in transformation. We’re always growing. I mean, we are, My belief is that we are sold having a human experience and we’re here to keep up leveling. We’re here to keep living our soul’s purpose and that purpose keeps evolving and changing as we keep learning lesson after lesson after lesson, right?

You know, I learned one lesson I learned a lot of lessons from my childhood later in life, but none of those lessons came to be until I was unhappy in my marriage. Then I realized my ex husband’s infidelity. Then I chose to file for divorce. My mother passed away. I changed my business. It’s like, Every lesson that I have experienced in my life has built upon the other.

And I also know that had I not had those prior lessons, I wouldn’t have been equipped to even overcome the current lesson that I have. And I think that One of the most important parts of any communities that you create, like in Mavenheart, right? Or the communities that I create for my clients, right?

That the community experience really, it’s about helping, like you said, to like, lift each other up, to support each other in these moments of discomfort, and also to share that. You’re not alone going through this, right? We are all uncomfortable quite often. And, you know, you and I may be sitting here to other people and people are going, Oh, well, you guys have it easy.

And it’s like, actually we don’t, we have bad days. We have moments where we call our coaches. We have moments where we are on the floor crying and, you know, or having really uncomfortable conversations with the people that we love or work with. questioning decisions that we make, or the universe is smacking up upside the head with lessons like Nikki’s and communities, I’m in communities, right?

So how have you seen and, or what have you experienced in either, you know, communities that you’re a part of, or based on what you’ve learned, like what you put into your community, like, how do you really support that? How do you support those that are going through similar challenges as you, or how do you receive it?

Yeah, I think the

biggest thing is, is being really authentic. So, like, I’m very authentic with my clients because, and it’s interesting, as I was listening to you talk, I kept thinking of like, you know, we always talk about Instagram, the highlight reel, right? Yes. And there’s not too many people doing their low light reels, right?

Because again, they’re pretty, you know, that, that ugly cry, the whole nine yards. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll start doing that.

But I was going to say, I’m like, you may have just struggled

with something. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You know, and I think it’s interesting too, because I know for me, like the first thought is, is like, oh my gosh, like ugly crying, it’s just.

That’s meant to be in private. I’m not saying don’t do it. So I don’t know if I would post that But yeah, I think that when you’re you’re putting somebody on a pedestal, right? So when you’re looking at these people on instagram or you and I or whatever You know, like I know for me the biggest thing one the ballet dancer right to the two tedx talks right that i’m done When people hear that all of a sudden, I think they put me on this like, oh right, but I have normal days, too Like I have days where Uh, and they’re more often lately because I think I’m making up for not crying as a child in my entire year of being 50.

Because, you know, I was taught that emotions were, you either were happy or angry, like there was no other really emotions. So, and you haven’t read, you cried, like that was a definitely off the table. But getting to level up to become a better version of yourself, really like, so I know we’ve talked about this.

So this is my Phoenix necklace and I’m really, this is like my touchstone because it just reminds me of where I’ve been and where I’m going. Right. And like, you have to go through the fire sometimes. Sometimes they’re little fires and they’re not so horrible, but sometimes they feel like. Like I, again, I feel like this has been my journey, especially the past couple of months is like, could it possibly get any lower?

Like every time I think I’m at the bottom, I’m like, okay, maybe there’s another layer. Right. And I know that eventually it’s going to come up and I really do feel like that’s actually going to shift today because of what I discovered earlier in my own journaling. But again, that’s the human experience.

Right? We don’t want to go through this, well, I’ll say for me, I don’t want to go through this life as a robot. I don’t want to just punch in a time clock and wait until death appears, right? To get married, have the kids, like all the checking the boxes. And that’s fine if that is your journey, but there is so much more.

I mean, as far as we know, we have this one life. Right? Maybe we have more. I don’t know. But, like, I was thinking this the other day, like, when, and I’m sure you’ve heard, when the time comes, when you look back on your life, how do you want to envision it, right? What do you want to say about your life? But for me, it was really like, what regrets?

And I don’t want to regret anything. There are very few things in my life I regret. But what regrets would I have if I didn’t do XYZ? And Mavenheart 100 percent is, would be a regret if I was like, no, I’m too scared. I’m too scared to step into that influencer aspect and all the things, right? But I don’t want to live my life like that.

Yeah. So for anybody that is in a community, number one, whatever you’re signing up for, whatever you’re getting involved in, you show up and get what you came for. Right? So whether you’re in Wendy’s program and you have invested with her or whether you’re invested with me You come in and you get what you came for It is not your coach’s hundred percent responsibility to get you’re the results that you want, right?

So because when you come in and you are all in there’s no way you can’t have a transformation Yeah, some version of it, right? So coming into communities, it’s It’s doing that, but also being authentic, being who you truly, like, really are. And I think this is where coaching is super helpful because there’s a lot of superficial crap going on, right?

Of like who I am, who I identify as, but there’s a whole laundry list lower of like, no, really what your true identity is. You don’t feel like you’re good enough. Right? Or whatever it is. So it’s understanding and learning who you are authentically. Because then when you’re authentic, you can show up as yourself, right?

In whatever situation you are in. And there’s a, there’s a knowing of that, but I think too, also when you’re in a group with people, there is, when you show up authentically, it’s, there’s this element of trust that gets built. And if you’re in a group and you don’t feel like you’re, the trust factor is in there, then that’s probably not your group or you’re not showing up authentically.
