Description

Sometimes, it's good to hear about the struggles and trials of others, especially if they've come through on the other side. This is such a podcast.

In this entry, it’s time to be thankful for time, thankful for the ability to change things, and thankful for what we have and accomplished in our lives. Yes, life might not be exactly the way that you or I want it to be right now. It’s very easy to see the negative and ignore the positive. However, it’s those positive things in your life that are going to help you get where you want to go. So lets take hold of life, take stock of what we have, and prepare to go roaring into the 20s. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, I don't give a hoot about what you think and neither should you. Being “Normal” isn’t something that should go away, but we should change what that means. What if instead of it having to do with alienating people for being unique and different, it actually has to do with how we treat other in an ever evolving society. Kindness, acceptance, and compassion as a common thing everyone shared in our culture, could you imagine that? Perhaps you should be.Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.comMusic was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, I’m not redacting what I’ve said or decided in previous recent entries, rather amending a few things. We’re humans and we can’t change the fact that we have an emotional reaction to things. You also can’t live life in a completely intellectual, neutral state. Even if you could, would you really want to? I deal with a lot of emotional imbalances due to my mental health issues and it’s exhausting. Sometimes my judgment is off, making it easy for me to commit rash decisions. So this is an entry about admitting mistakes, growing from new experiences, and hopefully moving on and committing to positive changes. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, it’s time to share the spookiest stories from my life experience…Fundamentalist Christianity! I opened it up to questions, got one response, and proceeded to talk over an hour and a half about young indoctrination, speaking in tongues, and how they work their manipulations to hook you in and convince you that everything they’re doing is not crazy. It’s madness unraveled and explained. Dim the lights, grab some candy, and be prepared for some chilling revelations. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, it’s about family. Unfortunately it’s not the feel good, Full House type, but the hyper-religious kind that sweep anything under the carpet that’s too shameful to deal with. I had 35 years of excuses for their behavior, while hiding myself from their periphery just to keep them from being “exposed” to the way I live my life. Now at 36, I just don’t have another day in me to tolerate intolerance. Shared blood and genetics is never a good reason to stay in relationship with people who actively poison you. Time to shed a tear, then shed the past. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re pulling out the ol’ Rand McNally maps, plotting a course, and heading out into the wild. It’s time to get back to business, know where I’m going once again. Possibly, just possibly, help you too if you’re feeling lost. Additionally, this is my birthday week and I’ll be posting a report card of myself for this past year of living, each day this week. Buckle up, grab a big gulp, tune into some terrestrial radios, and let’s get at ‘er.Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.comMusic was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about sex, baby! Well…sex adjacent. I asked for your questions on Facebook, and you delivered. You never know what you’re going to get when you ask for questions about sex related subjects, so this was a truly interesting recording session. We’re covering asexuality, monogamy, polyamory, open relationships, and down and dirty cheaters. Thanks to my questioneers for your contributions. Hopefully, my perspective is helpful. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, it’s multiple choice! Well, at least that’s how Christians practice their faith. They would never admit it of course, but many fundamentalists claim that they follow ALL the scriptures in the Bible. But do they actually? After recently falling asleep watching YouTube, then waking up to a YouTube auto-play of videos from Girl Defined (A Christian based series of obnoxious messages about purity and a woman’s place in the Patriarchal structure), I’ve got some bones to pick. First, WTF YouTube? Second, I’ve come here to drink a PSL and kick some scriptural ass…and I’ve just finished my latte. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, everything sucks and everyone is an asshole…Or maybe not.  Does anger and rage always spawn more anger and rage, or can it be redirected to provoke our better natures instead?

In this entry, we’re sliding up those scandalous over the knee patent boots, wearing everything that’s too sheer, too short, and too risqué. What is life without leaving some lasting impressions? Yes, some will say you’re just an exhibitionist, but there’s going to be a few who see you and feel your vibe. Who knows, you might just be helping someone else find their confidence.

In this entry, we’re talking about changes, even when things are going well. Why? Because it could be better. Self improvement sometimes means messing a few things up to find something more ideal. I also talk about passion and why I don’t allow myself to sell it out in certain areas anymore. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

EleAMental Podcast No. 82: Personal Jesus In this entry, we’re starting a religion! Following in the path of such great men such as Joseph Smith, L Ron Hubbard, and Alex Jones (He’s kinda like a new conspiracy based religion), we’re conjuring up a brand new belief system to call our own. You might think I’m kidding at this point. To a large degree, yes. However, the concept of faith and belief is interesting. And regardless how stupid and ridiculous the claims are, it’s still a powerful force that people are using to mold and shape our world. It’s that specific result I’m seeking. How do you live your life with reason, compassion, and love, while also believing in some force that drives you and gives you purpose. This will be sure to upset some, but I’m opening up about my new take on the spiritual. So no proselytization here, no trying to convince you of my beliefs. Instead, if you must believe, why not multiple choice? Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about self-worth again. This one is a little bit different. I’m not going to tell you to “Treat yo self” or “You a queen.” Instead, I want to persuade you to be honest with yourself. What do you feel you value is really worth. Do you let other determine it for you? To do think of yourself to highly? Are you good, but could be better. So don’t discard yourself in the clearance bin, but at the same time, are you really the best you can be? Only you can be the judge of that… Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about where I went these past few weeks! A mental health break is never a bad idea. I’m going to talk to you about my anxiety disorder and how it got way out of control. Then the bad things I tried to fix it, followed by the right things I did which actually is working. Nonetheless, I’m doing very well and am ready to push onward.Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.comMusic was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, let’s talk about keeping your therapy in session. When did people start wearing their mental illnesses like medals of honor? It’s become the ultimate excuse for people not to deal with their problems, it’s just “the way they are.” In reality, it’s annoying, it’s rampant, and it needs to stop. So let’s deal with our issues, remember what social curtesy is, and understand proper place and time to share certain information.

In this entry, we’re talking about being so much yummier. I’ve had a fascination with Catwoman for a long time (Michelle Pfeiffer specifically), I just wasn’t paying attention to the lesson she was trying to teach me. I’ve always seen myself as A Keaton Batman type. Awkward, introverted, brooding, focused, selfless. Now, I’m starting to see that while that is definitely part of me, there’s another. To quote Bruce Wayne to Selina Kyle, “We’re the same…split right down the center.” Like Yin and Yang, I too have a dual nature. One part bat, one part cat, I am contradictory, yet balanced sides. As of late, I’ve felt that nature begin to claw out of me. Forcing me to reevaluate myself and my beliefs. There’s a time to be the silent, watchful guardian, then there’s a time to squeeze into latex and rip out someones intestine with your bare hands. You can try to deny your dark side, but in the end, it finds a way to manifest one way or another. So let’s ask the question “What Would Catwoman Do?” Would she just forgive the people who tried to kill her, let Max Shreck slide for pushing her out a window? Would you? Or do you finally come to understand that forgiveness is not always the answer. It doesn’t always make you better, heal your wounds. And perhaps, just perhaps, all these beliefs and ideologies we accept as being good for us, might just be poison instead. So lets take an honest look at ourselves and ask, “Is forgiveness truly good for the soul, or just good for those who’ve sinned against us?” When you can accept those difficult painful truths, then you might just find real healing. Pour up a glass of ice cold milk and lets scratch through this surface, shall we? Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, I talk about my own little form of prostitution. I may not be selling my body, but I’m selling my soul. I feel that’s much worse. Let’s talk about work and how I pay the rent. When it’s come to my main source of income, mum has been the word. Since 2017, I had to start back at a job from my past, working as a Christian TV editor and producer. The content isn’t the kind you see where the lgbtq or liberals are being bashed, but it’s just not my idea of quality content. And it’s draining. Not to mention it opens up a lot of old wounds for me being in that world, even for a very small time each week. So a decision has been made and we’re going to talk about that today. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.comMusic was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

On this entry, we’re going back to the basics…the sexual basics. Mostly because a sad majority of our population has been miseducated about sex and reproduction, or simply no education whatsoever. We are in a sad state of affairs, rather multiple states. Not only are people not getting the fundamentals of what they can do to protect themselves before, during, and after intercourse, they’re also being punished with life altering consequences because of ignorance. I was fortunate enough to have had sex ed in California when I was in 7th and 8th grades. Had I been in Arkansas still, it would have been Abstinence-Only rhetoric. Lets face it, when 2 teens in the thrust of puberty find willing participants in each other, it’s going to happen. There is not threat, barrier, or chastity belt that will stop them. I had proper sex education in school, but bullshit shame and religious guilt at home. This is about my struggle with this division and how it did me a lot of harm, and many others as well. We also talk about the fact that most people are just doing it wrong. If you think you’re great at sex, chances are, you’re not. Hate to be the barer of bad news, but I’m here to tell you my awkward journey so you can benefit from my humiliation and mistakes. So, what would you little maniacs want to hear first?Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

On this entry, we talk about Body Dysmorphic Disorder, or BDD. On top of the body dysmorphia I’ve dealt with all my life because of gender, I’ve also inherited BDD from my genetic background. BDD is simply your brain either distorting your self image to be bigger than you actually are, or smaller. It’s vicious and it’s not something you just deal with, you actually need medication and counseling. I talk about my struggles here and give some insight into what happened in 2015 that caused me to retreat from the world.Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com
On this entry, we’re back with The Black Cat to talk once more about BDSM and Submissive/Dominant Relationships. However, this time we’re getting into the dirty details that many of you reached out and asked. We also talk about a few things we missed in the last conversation, hoping to shine a light (a black light?) on some important issues.  It’s time for even more sex education, especially since this isn’t the kind of topics you’re going to hear in a classroom, especially in Alabama…you heard me “50th.” So bind yourself up for an hour and join us in the dark.  Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols The Black Cat:http://blkcatapothecary.comInstagram: @_the_black_cat_apothecary Ele Nichols:Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com
