Show Notes

I'm highly self-critical by nature, often to a fault. A good amount of the inner work I've been doing over the past 2 years has been about reigning that part of myself in. But now that I'm exploring the IFS (Internal Family Systems) I had a realization: While my inner critic has been the dominant voice in my head for most of my life... I don't actually know much about this part of myself.

102: Decoding Dreams: Seeing Hidden Truths With Eyes Closed

Ever since reading Carl Jung, I got interested in dream interpretation, but most of the time I don't feel like interpreting my dreams. A dream I recently had though made me think that there was a message waiting for me. So in this episode, I go through the exercise of decoding my dream.

130: I Want to Be a Mystic When I Grow Up

For the last 2 to 3 months I’ve been pondering the concept of mystics and the idea of mysticism. To me, a mystic is someone that is placing the mystery of life at the center of their being. As someone who has lived so pragmatically for many years of my life, I found this concept to be wildly exciting, adventurous, and beautiful. I previously lived my life in a way that had so many steps and routines, it was working against me - hindering me from moving forward in the ways I wanted to. So now, I'm embracing a more mystical approach to experience a more expensive reality. In this episode, I talk about the dangers of living too practically, why flexibility and living in the here and now is so important, and striking a balance between these two concepts.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep130 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

063: Don't Solve Other People's Problems

One of the questions that reading Kafka has brought up in my mind is: How much pain are we causing others by trying to carry their burden? How much of the help I'm providing to others is really in the long run taking away their potential blessings? Part of Inner Work is about looking beyond the surface of what's obvious and see the deeper ramifications and motivations of our actions, and this episode is me digging into that.
