EP10: Uncovering the Inner GPS
Play • 1 hr 4 min

Alicia is on fire, using metaphors left and right to describe the nearly continuous flow of insights she's experiencing. With Rohini relating this understanding to Alicia's pre-established worldview (Christianity), Alicia can see clearly the power of letting God -- or the intelligence behind life -- take over in times of distress (and any time really) instead of relying on the intellect and her previous tendency to overthink.

One can feel Alicia buzzing with inspiration, relief, and a feeling of open-heartedness. It's such a relief to learn we don't have to control everything because in reality we can't control anything! She can see how her deepened understanding will help her in her relationship with Mateo, but also her relationships with others and perhaps most importantly, her relationship with herself.

This magical Rohini-Alicia session has Angus feeling a bit competitive, but mainly he's glad to hear about Alicia's big shift. When he suggests Rohini do a victory dance, she gently reminds him that couple's intensives are not a competition.

This episode explores:

  • Resignation vs. acceptance
  • Communicating from empathy rather than righteousness
  • Understanding has a vast ripple effect
  • Listening to our common sense is very practical, and yet it provides a powerful and comprehensive compass for navigating life
  • Wisdom is infinite
  • We can't undo a jump in consciousness - we will slip, but we can't un-see new insight
  • Pressure and performance don't make very good bedfellows
  • Increased resilience when in a place of presence
  • Letting go of control is not a passive activity -- it's an active listening to inner promptings and letting them be the guide.
