In this week’s podcast I discuss the scientific and spiritual nature of consciousness, psychic phenomenon and ask if the fraction of reality we are able to perceive through our five sense is the only reality available to us.
In this week’s podcast I talk about change and how we can develop a sense of “stable flexibility” that gives us a foundation to stand upon when things get rocky. Our lives involve a continual process of death and rebirth, where we get to release old beliefs and even our sense of identity, in order to move on to pastures new.
In this week’s podcast I talk about the current trend towards extreme simplicity and why this method of promoting change is destined to create more problems than it solves. Whether we are talking about women’s rights, differences between genders or climate change, the solutions are never black and white.
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of discipline in our everyday lives. Not the kind of discipline that we associate with control or punishment, but a higher octave of consciousness that keeps us from the inertia that often dominates our personal growth.
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of creativity and intuition. Being creative elevates us above our ordinary consciousness and connects us to our lifeblood. It gives us energy as it is an active rather than a passive pursuit. Creative expression stimulates different areas of our brain and brings with it feelings of inspiration while alleviating stress.
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of getting in touch with the invisible world, the world beyond our five senses, as a way to loosen our attachment to the idea that we are material girls and boys, living in a material world.
In this week’s podcast, we dive into the murky waters of what Carl Jung called, our Shadow. This part of us resides in our subconscious mind and is made up of everything we have suppressed. It can rise up and takeover our lives, high-jack our relationships and in extreme cases cause personality disorders. Yet if we give it our attention, it can become a road map towards health and happiness.
Our feelings can be so overwhelming at times that we either don’t want to look into them, or we simply believe our emotional states to be true. But like so many aspects of life they are in the eye of the beholder. In this week’s podcast I talk about how our beliefs affect our emotional state and why it’s important to understand why we feel they way we feel.
In a world that is moving towards a higher degree of polarisation we need to learn to become more nuanced in our interpretation of events and also spiritual teachings. Black and white thinking leads to dogma, which in turns hinders our growth. In this episode I talk about how we can walk the fine line between logic and intuition so we have a balanced view of reality. Viewing life in a symbolic way allows us a different perspective helping us to move out of victimhood and towards empowerment.
To live fully in the present runs counter to our everyday existence, as our lives are run by the imposition of time. When we transcend this construct, through an altered state of consciousness, we catch a glimpse of our emancipated self; but this freedom comes at a price.
