Shelah’s Instagram page bio includes the words, “I help people help themselves.” And based on her ever-growing “tribe” of followers, and the overflow of love in her comments section, she does just that! Shelah inspires me because she is living in her purpose by teaching self love to women of all shades, shapes, and sizes; and sharing methods that have helped her to heal from past wounds in hopes to heal the wounds of others.

YOUR NAME AND PROFESSION

Shelah Marie, Actress, Meditation Enthusiast

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU DO.

I entertain, I perform, and I help women find avenues to live happier, healthier lives.

WHAT PUSHED YOU TO START YOUR MOVEMENT, CURVY, CURLY, CONSCIOUS? WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THIS MOVEMENT?

It started from a selfish place in the sense that I was doing what I needed for myself. I needed to love myself more, so I searched endlessly for resources about how to love myself. I needed to cope with depression and anxiety, so I found meditation.
This movement is about supporting women to love themselves fully and live happier, healthier lives.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING YOGA AND MEDITATION? AND HOW HAVE THE TWO CHANGED YOUR LIFE?

I was introduced to meditation around 2007, but I started practicing regularly in 2013. I started practicing yoga in 2014. I love yoga and meditation as a pair because they work together. In yoga, I learn to sit through discomfort. And in meditation, I learn to sit with myself.

WHAT DOES THE SAYING “POSITIVE VIBES ONLY” MEAN TO YOU?

That’s tricky. I wouldn’t necessarily use that phrase because you can’t only have positive vibes. We have a range of human emotions that are valuable and natural to experience. I don’t promote fake happy doctrine that tells you to be happy all the time. I would be more likely to advise not getting particularly attached to any emotions. However, focusing on postive vibes is definitely a great idea!

 

WHAT (OR WHO) INSPIRES YOU? ON DAYS WHEN THINGS SEEM TOO STRESSFUL, WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED?

I’m inspired by my tribe (my followers on social media) because they’re kind, intelligent, thoughtful and so supportive. I’m also inspired by women like Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, and I actually adore Cardi B.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

Relax. I promise you it willl be okay. Lol

I am looking forward to launching Soul Study Academy!

BONUS: SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE THE CUTE PICTURES OF YOU AND YOUR BOYFRIEND ON YOUR INSTAGRAM PAGE. ESPECIALLY THE YOGA PICTURES! HOW DID YOU GET HIM TO BECOME INTERESTED IN YOGA AS WELL? (I’M ASKING FOR A FRIEND LOL)

I never asked Ace to do anything he wasn’t already interested in. He was always interested in yoga and meditation, but didn’t have the opportunity to explore it. I just gave him a little push lol
