Abigail Teixeira

Abigail Teixeira is a Best-Selling Author, Speaker, Mental Health Advocate & Women’s Transformational Coach. She helps heart-centered women share their stories, discover their gifts and transform their lives in a profound way. 

She tells us that, “As someone who is recovering from abuse, addiction and trauma, I understand the mental health struggles that women face, often in shame and silence. I know your struggles are real – and sometimes all we need is a safe space to share with someone who’s been there, who IS right there with you. My life’s purpose is to create this space for others, empowering them to take control and step into their true potential. Because the truth is: your past does not dictate your future. I believe we all have the ability to shine bright, rewrite the narrative, and embark on a transformational journey towards a more resilient future – one that empowers you, right down to the soul level.

What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.

My journey as a mental health warrior began after years of struggling with abuse, anxiety, alcohol addiction, depression and even a few suicide attempts over 8 years ago. My days consisted of self-sabotaging and destructive behaviour patterns. I felt completely alone, faking my way through the day and hardly ever speaking my own truth. I didn’t have the tools. I didn’t have a role model. It was that dark season of life (resulting from years of childhood trauma) that made me realize that I had to flip the script and write a new narrative for myself.

Tell us something about your initiative/business. What is it about and how is it helpful for people?

I made the commitment to start working on myself and embarked on a rigorous, but necessary personal development journey. Amidst the chaos, I had always been interested in entrepreneurship and began to network with local business owners in my city as a way to overcome my shyness and severe social anxiety. To share my message, I started an Instagram page when several people encouraged me to go public with my story. I have now become a whole new version of myself, leading with purpose as I guide women to the other side of their most vulnerable stories. It’s possible if you just keep going.

While the global pandemic of COVID-19 is associated primarily with adversities, it has also brought about a true boom in startups, with successful entrepreneurship in many countries. The pandemic has impacted all of us in one way or another. Would you like to share your experience on a personal and professional level?

These past 3 years+ have created some much opportunities for me to evolve, continue growing and adapting to new normals it’s also solidified my life’s purpose and the importance of being a light in the world.

What has been the response of the users/consumers towards your venture?

Today, I’ve been able to channel all of my experiences into serving others. I’ve had the opportunity to speak at several summits and conferences including on a bLUTalks stage. My written work has been featured in two international best-selling books, Heal 4.0 and Business Life and the Universe Volume 7. At the end of 2022, I decided to go all in on my dreams and obtain a professional coaching + facilitation certification through Evolving Wisdom, Feminine Power Institute for Women. I am so excited to have you join me on this exciting journey of self-discovery, growth and fulfillment.

How has your life changed because of your initiative/venture?

I have become a completely different woman and I’m so excited to help guide other women through their own personal transformations.

Do you have anyone who is the biggest support system in your life? Please let us know.

My husband Nelson we’ve been together for 14 years and his unwavering support means the world to me.

Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity? OR Share a motivational message for the audience/women who are reading this.

As women, we are powerful and capable of amazing things, but often our own and narratives hold us back. I believe in authenticity, community and unconditional love. I believe in the power of the feminine spirit and collective wisdom we hold. I believe that sometimes we have to break down to break through. And that we all have the ability to shine bright, rewrite the narrative, and embark on a transformational journey towards a more resilient future – one that empowers you, right down to the soul level.
