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.
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.
