Checkin’ Religious Trauma Recovery



Religious Trauma Syndrome is a result of both the chronic abuses of extremist religions and the impact of severing one’s connection with one’s faith and faith community. It can be compared to a combination of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)  and Complex PTSD (C-PTSD) .

My guest today, Andrew Jasko, was formerly a Pentecostal Christian minister and missionary to India. Although religious faith was his life’s passion, Andrew suffered from anxiety, depression, and guilt about sexuality. He left his religion after realizing that biblical teachings were the cause of his distress. Andrew has gone on his healing journey and survived. Now he combines his current studies of psychology with religion from the perspective of trauma and is helping others on their journey.

Checkin’ Psychology & The Stars



“Growing up, I always had this desire to learn  more about something beyond. Find a pattern that understood the fragments of the world and put it back into a better puzzle of understanding of myself and the reflection of everything that we are” – Kyle Thomas

On its face, we might not necessarily connect Astrology and Psychology. However at its base, there is are connections.

Much of both have a focus on patterns that can form guidance, understanding, and awareness.

Which is why I spoke with Pop Culture Astrologer Kyle Thomas, who also happens to have a degree in Psychology which he utilizes in his growing research of personality, the human condition and the stars. He is the resident astrologer at Love By Luna who published his book 2019 LOVESCOPES- A Year Long Guide To Love Written By The Stars in January 2019

Checkin’ Identity with Guest Dr. J Rodriguez



A “fixed mindset” refers to the mindset that things exist in a static state. It can extend to our beliefs, our personality traits, others beliefs, others personality traits, other peoples identities. We give them words, we can give them labels, we give them boxes that we can perhaps comfortably understand.

Anybody who knows me and The Shek Check, knows that is something I’ve been challenging within myself, so I can challenge it within others. Boxes are no place for people, and fixed and static places hold no place for growth or freedom.

In this episode, what is explored is our identities. While as a society we cling to these fixed identities, again because it feels safe and confined. Easy to understand. However, what is more natural is fluid personality. That battle between the two becomes a new battle for us. We don’t always realize how we fight it in our daily lives, in our relationships with others and our relationship with ourselves.

I came across Award WInning Communications Expert and Professor Dr. J Rodriguez by watching his TEDx Talk at California State University Long Beach. An inspiring jump into fluid identity, mindfulness, and finding purpose in our everyday by using all the people we come into contact within our day.

You can check out Dr. J’s Tedx Talk right here:

“The Power of Solidarity in the Moments of Life” -Youtube

One of my favorite things about this show and my guests, is how much I get to learn. How much my perspective gets to shift, and how I get to embrace fluidity with my views. This episode with Dr. J is no different.
