Hello there! My name is Alexandria Thibodeaux! I am a highly sensitive Creole living amongst the Rocky Mountains of Denver, CO withy my husband and our 3 animal companions: Zuni & Theo (our cats) and Herman (our dog).

I serve as a self-relationship coach, speaker, and writer who helps highly sensitive persons (HSPs), survivors of emotional abuse, and self-motivated individuals navigate life from a place of self-acceptance as a means to operate via fierce intuition, unwavering self-respect, and complete authenticity! This is my movement that I’m furthering!

I do this work because:

I believe in a world where each human being functions from the foundation of self-reverence — deep respect and admiration for the self.

Why?


Respect is to be earned — no exceptions.

Ten commandments and religion aside, this notion that children are forever expected to morally obligate themselves into showing unparalleled reverence for their parents, biological or otherwise, is a dogma that fuels the plague that is generational trauma.

Of course, there are parents in the world who are deserving of high respect and great esteem from their children because they have earned the respect of their children. Yes, I said earn.

No human is deserving of automatic respect without reason; respect is to be earned — there are no exceptions. This is why the concept of humility is problematic to our…


Don’t gaslight yourself into thinking you're unable to serve & help others!

A dangerous form of insecurity and imposter syndrome that thwarts our endless potential to abundantly help, support, and serve others is the false belief that we don’t possess the skills necessary to do so because we are still on our own healing and growth journey — this is a belief of sheer folly!

The truth: there are copious ways to help people emotionally, spiritually, and physically — not despite our continued healing, but rather, in conjunction with it. …


Conscious communication creates compassionate collaboration.

Communication is how animals express, share, and exchange information. Both human and non-human animals convey verbal and nonverbal transmissions of our thoughts and feelings as a way to illustrate our reality to another. While human animals possess a range of ways in which to assert ourselves, communicating in a mindful manner to genuinely and effectively convey our reality is quite complex. Vulnerability and empathy serve as the foundation for eliciting critically and consciously prepared words and body language to express our truth. And a heedful choice of diction, semantics, and tone is crucial when communicating effectively.

Here are some phrases…


I’m here to advocate being being self-serving — which differs from being selfish

Photo by Miguel Perales on Unsplash

Being selfish means having a lack of concern for people and their needs and concerns and choosing to put your personal pleasure and profit above all else. Being self-serving means choosing to put your personal welfare and interests first. Pleasure and profit vs welfare and interests; inconsiderate gratification and greed v.s. well-being and regards.

Being self-serving is about taking action in ways to provide ourselves safety and comfort. It means honoring our intuition, advocating for ourselves, asserting our needs, and standing in our worth. It means protecting our peace and maximizing our resources to enhance our peace. …


The law of attraction is metaphysical pseudoscience, not a “law” of nature.

The law of attraction is considered, by its proponents, to be a “universal” law dictating that like always attracts like and negative always attracts negative. This concept is based in the belief that the universe “listens to” the desires that consume our thoughts and subsequently provides us those desires because we focused on it in thought: if you think it, it will come.

Essentially, it’s based in the belief that the universe possesses awareness, and prioritized awareness, of our thoughts as well as a sentient agenda to provide each of us nearly 8 billion earthlings our deepest yearnings.

How does this mindset differ from the now ancient and scientifically refuted belief in executive gods who were once thought to grant or deny us that which we desired?

Supporters of this law suggest thoughts are tangible…


You have abundant reasons to deeply admire and respect yourself.

I believe in a world where each human being honors a deep respect and admiration for themselves, because we each possess unique gifts and skills with unparalleled significance in contributing to the progression of humanity, and because each human being has triumphed over trauma. These truths represent each person’s extraordinary worth and value — this alone merits deep self-respect and self-admiration: self-reverence.

What is Self-Reverence?

Self-reverence is the act and practice of revering the self.

“Reverence” is defined as a deep admiration and respect for someone or something.

This concept is common in many of our cultures and societies around…


I’m astute, perceptive, & empathic — not weak, irrational, & neurotic

A highly sensitive person is someone who possesses an acutely sensitive nervous system due to a genetic and physiological trait called Sensory Processing Sensitivity. Because Sensory Processing Sensitivity wires the HSP nervous system extra sensitively, HSPs experience deeper cognitive processing of physical, social and emotional stimuli. Essentially, this means HSPs process their sensory experiences (so all experiences) on a deeper, more detailed level. This includes what we’re seeing, reading, hearing, thinking, and feeling physically & emotionally.

This trait effects 15–20% of the world population — that’s 1 in 5…


Stand up! Don’t be humble!

Humility doesn’t mean what we think it means. Generally, we think it means selfless and wise. What it really means is modest and submissive, two principles that reduce one’s worth and value, especially that of women. This is precisely why we as a collective should stop using this counterintuitive word! Instead, when we feel inclined to use the word humble, we should use the more accurately representative word: “mindful”.

As we humans have deeply embedded ourselves in the dogma that a “good” person is one of humility, we have also stifled our ability to recognize…


“But…why?!”

The word “but” uniquely triggers every human being when it’s directed to them because we generally misuse the term, rendering its use counterproductive. Furthermore, when we use the word “but”, we don’t correctly use it to convey an authentic representation of what we are trying to communicate effectively and clearly. This is why “but” has an aggressive, accusatory, distrustful connotation. It’s high time we broke this habitual pattern in our speech and used empathy and authenticity to effectively communicate.

When we make any statement — a declaration, assertion, opinion — whatever it may be, and then use the word…
