I recently sat down with the team from Conscious Initiatives to talk about the state of the world.

Despite a challenging day for me personally, this 30-min presentation turned out to be one of my favorites.

When we stop fighting and become deeply grounded in ourselves—we stop self-betraying, we stop self-abandoning—and we step back into alignment, which is where our power lies.

In it I discuss:

  • My high-level perspective on what’s actually happening in the world today
  • How operating from the old paradigm of fighting, protesting, and demanding isn’t working
  • How our current experience of betrayal from the government, media, medical system, and loved ones actually reveals ways in which we’ve betrayed ourselves
  • How the dominant narrative leverages the concept of altruism against us
  • What sovereignty is and what it means
  • How to reclaim our power without needing to “prove” anything
  • Why we shouldn’t offer people advice that they haven’t asked for
  • How I get in touch with my own intuition and recognize those times when I’m operating from a triggered place
  • Why victim consciousness is at the root of human pathology
