Ready? Let’s go…
• You know, basically my life, it started out as a little bit traumatic, not consciously though, which is really what messed me up for the rest of my life. So I was adopted. And just that alone really created trauma and issues in my life, but I couldn’t consciously connect those memories with a feeling with an emotion within myself, because I didn’t consciously remember. As a baby, you got taken away, and then, you know, you were monitored. You weren’t really, you know, loved on for the first couple of months. So I had to figure all of this out through my shadow work that wow, I really started out this life in a traumatic way because I started out, you know, having these abandonment issues. (02:30)
• So I was still trying to self-soothe through drugs and alcohol throughout all of this, even though, you know, I was so successful on the outside, like winning awards and living this extravagant career life as a business person. You know, but I was still inwardly, I was hurting really. When I left the real estate industry and joined, I became a president to a mental health gym. That’s really when I dove into biohacking. I had already experimented along my journey with a little bit of biohacking here and there, but I was using it in a negative way. To try to bring my brain back from the parties. After, you know, a whole night of drinking and drugs, I would use bio-hacking tools to sharpen myself back up. (06:05)
• If you’re being chased by a lion, boom, your body will go into fight or flight, you’ll be able to pick up and run fast because the blood is going to your extremities. You know, your pupils dilate, so you can take in more and you’re basically just running away from a threat. The problem is these days is that people are stuck like that, their bodies are stuck in that response. So now it’s impossible to basically heal yourself because your gut completely shuts down when you’re in fight or flight. So if you’re eating and you’re in fight or flight, you’re not absorbing that nutrition, you’re not taking really anything from that meal that you’re eating. You’re not thinking consciously you lose 30% brain capacity when you’re in fight or flight. (13:27)
• You know, you can really tell the people that have done the work, done the deep shadow work. Because they’ll literally come from a place of no judgment. It’s very difficult for me now to really be angry at people because I understand where that comes from, you know, even the trolls and these people, these haters. I just, honestly, I feel kind of bad for them because their pain runs so deep that they have to express it outwardly to other people, and that’s deep pain within itself. Because if you’ve done the work and you’ve addressed your issues, you can’t really spit that negativity upon other things. It’s almost impossible because you don’t have it inside of you. Wayne Dyer says the best, What happens when you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out, what happens when you squeeze a lemon? Lemon juice comes out. What happens when you squeeze yourself?
