Highlights from today's episode include:
I've already tried changing my job, I've already moved somewhere new, I've already gotten in shape. So, none of those things, did it? What is it that's going to help me even figure it out? And so it was that clue, like that clue that really just hit me in the gut. And that's the thing I want to encourage everybody to listen to. And for many of us, it whispers for a long time before we can really even recognize that it's going on. It's it looks like that low level of malaise. It looks like a low sex drive with your partner. It looks like dreading Monday's, it looks like redecorating your room for the fourth time instead of having that hard conversation with your partner, that those are kind of the signs that you're trying to make little tweaks at the surface. But there's something deeper that needs to be looked at and addressed.

Because if people do what I did, after I had this realization, and try to follow kind of more mainstream self-help device, or the most popular personal growth books, things like that, it can be a very confusing and frustrating experience. And this is what I ran into, because I realized, of course, okay, something big has to change. Let me just go like to Barnes and Noble at the time and go look at their personal growth aisle and see what titles stand out. And I don't remember exactly the first books that I started with, but I gained a large collection of self-help over the years. And what I was finding, though, was that many of the books had the same message, first and foremost. And if they were truly like New York Times bestseller selling millions of copies, then why weren't millions of people having truly improved lives?
We have to get underneath that at first to even make it possible to start to have some of that body work, somatic practices, be able to land and to create that sense of safety that it is actually okay, to turn your focus back toward yourself. It's not going to put you into a place of threat. And you can get that intellectually. But getting that at a at a very deep core level so that you can do that subconscious and unconscious rewiring work is critical. And that's where I always begin. And then we start to develop awareness. Once you have that safety, the awareness can come on and things can start to change. And you can train yourself to watch for Oh, this is what fight looks like for me.
