The reason you suffer is because you identify with your mind. When you start to reside with your attention in the YOU underneath the layers of belief, meaning and opinion… what you’ll find is peace. Peace doesn’t mean that there are no traffic jams, no feelings of anxiety, or no anger anymore. The difference is that you relate to all of that from a very different place. A place where you give less meaning to anything happening and embody acceptance of what’s here.
With a new home base, it’s easy to detect when you’ve gone into identification with the mind again. The difference is striking. One is suffering. The other is not. Having the experience of this state can become such a relief that we use it to turn away from the world and our human self. That’s okay, and often a part of the journey. The question that is deeply inspiring my work is: Can you take the embodiment of a true state of acceptance and love, back home to your human experience? To the morning coffee, to the surfacing argument with your partner, to anything arising inside of you.
A man who deeply inspired me in falling in love with my human and feel deeper than ever before, is Chris Bale. Chris is a spiritual mentor, intimacy coach and master energy worker. His embodied expression of mature masculine energy, with deep compassion for human conditioning and wounding, is a source of healing for thousands.
In this week’s episode of the Uncover YOU podcast, I have a soul-nourishing conversation with Chris that spans from taking apart your bullshit and moving from your head into your body, to energy polarity and what it has to do with feeling alive.
If you’d like support in taking the journey we’re talking about in this episode – from stuck in your head to the direct experience of yourself – come join us in my 8-month alchemical program Being Me. Chris will be a guest teacher. You’ll be guided into deep work in shadow integration, nervous system regulation, and the embodiment of the you underneath the old conditioning, so that you can feel trust and navigate life from what you want. We’re just getting started and I’m keeping the doors open for a few more days.
