5 signs you’re doing your inner work from your head


5 signs you’re doing your inner work from your head

05 April 2023

If at times you feel stuck or confused with your inner work – what you should do with a certain pattern or if you’re actually getting any results – chances are that you’re approaching your healing from your mind. Your mind and awareness can only take you so far on the road to self mastery. In a sense, it’s hanging out in the safe surroundings of the actual dojo. 

At one point you’ll be invited into the arena of emotions, nervous system and embodiment. You’re invited to merge the spiritual and the human. To align your heart-mind-body and unify your will. Good news: this will also bring you into a completely new experience of life, yourself and the felt sense of God pulsing through you. There’s another way of operating and your mind doesn’t know about it yet.

If what you get from working with me is just more knowledge, quotes, and spiritual concepts that you can impress with at your next dinner party or in the chat in your next webinar, I haven’t done a very good job.

I don’t care if you can quote holy scriptures, map your limiting beliefs or have the best definition of integrity. What I DEEPLY care about is that you get to feel the trembling of your nervous system when trauma is finally healed and released. That you get to feel GOD moving through your body. That you get to feel a love so all-encompassing that you can taste it also in wounds, death, and loss.

That’s why, in this episode of the Uncover YOU podcast, I want to give you 5 examples of what it looks and sounds like when you approach your inner work from the head. Signs that tell you you’re stuck in your head. These signs don’t just apply to how you relate to your inner work. You might recognize them in your relationships and how you move through life in general.

Let’s look at some seemingly very normal ways of doing inner work, that are actually disembodied or embodying the urgency of your survival program. And lovingly call out the part in all of us that thinks inner work is about figuring things out.
