The Mirror

“I’m starting with the man in the mirror, I’m asking him to change his ways.” In this week’s podcast I talk about the internal emotional states that cause us to continually act out the victim/oppressor dynamic and how internal reflection helps to change the external world. Can we ever feel empowered and live without fear while clinging for dear life to our right to be victims? Are we prepared to stand out from the crowd and start telling a new story?

The Crucible

In this week’s podcast, I talk about how we discern fact from fiction and why we need to balance our emotional reactions with critical thinking. Often we trust our feelings as a substitute for using our intuition, which comes from a neutral space rather than a reactionary state of consciousness. Whatever our opinion on any issue, the only way to have clarity is to delve into our own psyche and start from a position of uncertainty, or at least open-mindedness.

DUAL realITY

In this week’s podcast I talk about the alchemy of change and how understanding our inner duality helps us turn lead into gold. Before we embark on examining our psyche, our view of life and ourselves is clouded by the past. This inner distortion actually blocks the natural process of change that we all undergo by virtue of being born. Mental illness can be seen as a reaction to these inner blocks and the world of denial that many of us live in.

Creating Space

In this week’s podcast I talk about freedom without consequences. It sounds like a movie title, doesn’t it? And in a way it is a fairy tale, yet this concept underpins so many of the social movements towards change. We spend so much time trying to change the behaviour of others, either in our personal lives or the collective, because we feel offended or threatened. Yet these feelings come from a deep sense of unworthiness; an unconscious feeling that we all have in common.

Father Time

In this week’s podcast I talk about the elusive and multi-layered concept of Time. Whether it is the pressure of clock time or the emotions associated with psychological time, we experience time as a construct of either society or our own minds. To escape the confines of time we need to learn to connect to our own timeline and begin to work with “Father Time”; our greatest teacher.

Stable Flexibility

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.

Choosing Realities

Our perception of reality is changing. It makes us feel unsettled, fearful, confused, disillusioned and disempowered. What is true? Who do we believe? Is the world going to end tomorrow? Will we kill each other through endless wars? Will environmental disasters become the norm? What will become of us? It depends on which reality you focus on, the manufactured one we see when we look at the screen, or the real one that comes alive when we switch off and get back to nature. Which one will you choose?
