302-ReThinking Anxiety and Insomnia

“Do you suffer from anxiety or insomnia? Maybe you need a new definition…

In today’s podcast and post I propose an alternative way to view anxiety and insomnia. As someone who has suffered with these for much of my life, I have discovered a profoundly liberating framework from which I’ve found a lasting sense of peace and rest.

Join me now as I offer a new definition of anxiety which invites us to consider that these are not problems for which we must seek treatment, but are instead invitations to a deeper dimension of life.

236- We don’t FEAR infection…

“Are you afraid of catching COVID-19?” Actually, you aren’t…

Fear and uncertainty is ramping up and doubling faster than any infection of coronavirus. Our anxieties are high, and now politics is playing the binary banjo strings to pit us against one another again. In today’s podcast and post, I will explain what all the fear is really about.

Join me now as we see beyond the fear propaganda machines, and look deeper at the existential reality of losing our life. This portal allows us to see the thing we really ought to fear.

41-Dark Days 6: The Dark Night


In this concluding episode, I show how the two approaches that we have been exploring greatly diverge leaving us two very different trajectories. There are profound reasons to see depression and anxiety as portals through which we enter a broader experience with ultimate reality. If we choose rather to deflect or eradicate the dark night, we may very well miss the deepest part of our soul.

40: Dark Days 5, Seeing the Puller


We are beginning to turn a corner now in our examination of depression and anxiety. The alternative perspective that I have been unfolding reaches a vital frameshift in this weeks post. Even though depression and anxiety appear to stop us in our tracks, the reality is that we are actually moving. If we examine our natural fall line we learn that we are actually moving opposite of our gravitational trend. This exposes something that will enable us to burst through the paradigms that are no longer helping us. Click now to learn this vital insight.

39-Dark Days part 4: The Story we Believe.


To rise from our funk we must change brain chemicals but that doesn’t mean we need to rely on prescription drugs or self numbing. In this post I share many alternatives to prescription drugs that are proven to have a greater effect on brain chemistry and they do so without side effects.

But the issue goes much deeper and we must explore what causes the chemicals in the first place. Our truth story is the one thing that either serves as a counterbalance to the impacts of life or it becomes the thing that exacerbates them and forms a feedback loop.

I share why this is so hard to combat, and I illuminate a vital key that is often missed in most forms of therapy. This key will provide tremendous strength to a wider truth story and infuse you with a new strategy in our darkest hours.

38- Dark Days 3: Brain or Consciousness?


It may seem strange to say that someone who struggles with anxiety or depression is actually having a TRUTH problem. In this episode, I will explore a nuance that is often missed when we entrust ourselves to the clinical path for addressing these problems. We go deeper into the relationship between the brain and our consciousness and this causes a potential frameshift to bubble to the surface.

37-Dark Days 2: What’s Your Compass?


If you or a loved one is suffering from depression or anxiety, it is very likely that the only trusted resource to find a solution will be a medical or psychological professional. Most people would consider “spiritual” advice to be unreliable, untestable, or at the minimum something to which we should be skeptical.  In this episode I explain that the human soul (Psuché-from which we get Psychology) is the authority in non-physical reality. If our goal in mental health is to alter our consciousness then consciousness is ultimately a spiritual consideration and as such I introduce a watershed question.

36- Dark Days 1: Good News, You’re Depressed!


So many people in our world suffer from anxiety and depression. I personally have been dealing with anxiety since my late twenties. In the arena of mental and emotional health, our society primarily turns to brain and behavioral science professionals as the exclusive authority. In this podcast I introduce the notion that the soul is not distinct form our brains or our behavior, but encompasses all of our humanity. Furthermore, as an expert in the soul, I will offer another perspective on how to approach these common problems. What if these problems are not something for which we must strive to eradicate, but are symptomatic of something larger and actually function as the means to a much greater end?
