We live in an insane world which causes tremendous stress, causing us to be in a constant state of reaction.
It’s how we get stuck in a paradigm that doesn’t serve us while never seeming to relent. If you expect “the world” or “the industry” to change so you can then change, then you have relinquished your singular (creative) agency.
We live in a matrix, but you must also acknowledge that the matrix gets wired into each of us. That’s what programming is: hypnotic suggestion, modeling, sensory information, repetition, and trauma. We are a byproduct of our environment, whether you see it or not.
This does not mean there is anything wrong with you. You’re not flawed or broken; in fact, it’s quite the contrary.
It’s because you’re a sensitive and relational being. I’m speaking straight. I don’t share this work for any other reason than for people to finally acknowledge and release the shame, the guilt, sadness, grief, anger (rage!), worry, anxiety, disappointment that manipulates us and stimulates false narratives of not enough, damaged, failure, not possible etc which absolutely gets projected onto our money, and conceals the beauty, the wonder, the stillness, the life-force that is you, in this moment.
It’s up to each of us to change that, which won’t be through actions coming from past programming. That’s why it’s essential to uncover and dissolve the specific (emotional/mental) programming, so you can remember what (yes, what, with no identity that ”who” implies) you are beneath the hypnotic noise that has convinced you of arbitrary rules and lies that do not serve you, or any of us.
There’s a deeper root cause to your patterns, shadow, and “stories”.
Imagine if you dissolved it.
What would you experience?
Imagine how you might perceive your life, your work, your self and place in the world?
Would you start leading?
Would you honor both your needs and desires, despite others potentially challenging you, whether your prices, your ideas, your views, your hairstyle, your clothes, etc.
And maybe it’s not anyone “else” because it’s actually not.
It always comes down to you and what you allow, or not.
