Be the Dawn in the Darkness with John Henry Parker

Finding joy on the side of trauma.

When we face a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, it can feel debilitating. Often it makes you feel powerless, scared, and confused. Trauma has this effect of leaving deep scars, yet every scar comes with the wisdom of a story. 

Trauma’s emotional energy is often perceived as harmful and disruptive. In truth, it’s transformative. 

One universal law states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed — only converted. Like a blacksmith repurposing “used” tools and forging a state-of-the-art weapon, you can channel your trauma into motivation toward your purpose and vision. 

In today’s episode of the Becoming Kings Podcast, I sit down with John Henry Parker to discuss his transformative relationship with gangs, the military, and psychedelics. For John, predetermined conclusions about trauma and apathy drove him down the wrong path. If you grapple with negative self-beliefs, this episode is a must-listen.

In this episode you’ll learn about…
