Content warning: This week’s episode deals with emotional manipulation, sexual abuse, trauma, and psychic abuse. 

This week we’re joined by Australian actress and singer/songwriter Bonnie Piesse. Bonnie is a survivor of the multilevel marketing cult NXIVM and is in the HBO docuseries, The Vow.  She shares with Natalie the role intuition played in helping her realize that she was in a cult and how listening to that voice gave her the strength and power to walk away. 

In this episode, we talk about:

  • How following your intuition can feel destabilizing 
  • Being gaslit by people in positions of authority 
  • Stepping out into the unknown after breaking away from the cult
  • Using intuition to tune into the energy of people
  • Psychic Manipulation
  • How psychic gifts don’t imply good intent
  • Receiving signs from the universe after leaving NXIVM
  • Dealing with psychic attacks
  • The effect that Bonnie’s awakening had on her marriage
  • Bonnie’s healing journey after NXIVM
  • Bonnie’s mission to get people to hear their own intuition
