The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing your true self. Ego, the false idea of believing that you are what you have or what you do, is a backwards way of assessing and living life
- Wayne Dyer
Hello and welcome to the State Shifters Podcast episode 1!
Podcasts have been a big part of my life over the last couple of years and after seeing the immense value they have given to me; I considered it was time for me to start my own.
The primary goal/vission/purpose behind State Shifters is to unlock higher states of awareness - podcasting is a perfect way for me to work towards this vision.
I strongly believe in the power of communication, this was one of the reasons for me starting State Shifters - I wanted to communicate and share my journey of personal growth with others, to hopefully guide, support and grow with other people
My decision to record and now publish, my first podcast began as an idea to record a conversation between me and a close friend - who I will introduce in the first episode.
I noticed how insightful our chats were. I appreciated how valuable it was talking about meaningful topics such as love, pain, connection, ego and transcendence, to name a few.
I recognize not everyone has the opportunity to share insights on such deep and empowering topics.
This is where I see the value in podcasts!
This is an opportunity to be apart of our journey as we share our perspective on what it means to live a meaningful life.
I truly believe to become the best version of ourselves, we must must connect with a deeper part of ourself.
In this episode we will discuss what this "deeper" self means and how to access it.
Key takeaways from the first episode:
- The difference between the true self and the mind made self (ego)
- Why pain and suffering can be a gateway to uncovering the true self
- How to become more aware
- How to manage excessive thinking
- How to use your senses as a spiritual practice
- Where the evolution of human consciousness is taking us
I hope you enjoy the first episode. As always, please feel free to reach out to me if you would like more information about the topics discussed here.
