120: Englowment: A Recent Experience Along the Path to Enlightenment?

I recently had an experience where I came close to what I believe enlightenment might feel like. This happened a few days after attending a silent retreat and going on a walk in nature—the intense state of pure love I experienced I'm now playfully going to be referring to as "englowment". It was a beautifully terrifying experience that was almost too much for my mind to comprehend. But since then, it’s led me to a new state of happiness and peace I haven’t previously experienced in my life. In this episode I’m sharing more about this experience and the lasting, positive impact it’s had on me for weeks after.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep120/ Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

119: Discovering Silence: 7 Ways I Practice Silence Daily

Silence is an essential element of inner work. But in modern life, it's pretty much as rare as a precious metal. It's so easy to always be distracted, constantly consuming some kind of information or entertainment, engaging in some activity—we've got infinite ways to keep our minds busy. You have to consciously create silence in your life. Silence is the space in which insight and wisdom can grow, and in silence you can hear your inner voice loud and clear. Silence is holy. In this episode, I share 7 ways I create silence in my days, and how it has transformed my life.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep119/ Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

118: The Courage to Not Hide Your Struggles

118: The Courage to Not Hide Your Struggles

This is part of a conversation we've had in August of 2020, where we discussed the courage it takes to share your weaknesses. Many people think that I don't care what other people think about me—but nothing could be further from the truth. For most of my life, I cared deeply about impressing others, and I got very good at hiding my own struggles and weaknesses—not only from others, but even from myself. And I even judged people who shared their weaknesses openly, was repulsed by it. But healing doesn't happen in hiding—healing happens in the light.

117: The Power of Timing

117: The Power of Timing

Recently I've been experimenting a lot with timing: changing not so much what I do, not really adjusting my habits, but simply being more mindful of when I do these things. And I found that even doing the exact same thing can have an immensely different impact on my life just because of when I do it.

116: Bewunderung—Keeping Your Sense of Wonder Alive

There's a German word I really love: Bewunderung. It's commonly translate as 'admiration', but that doesn't quite capture the full meaning of the word. In this episode, I talk about the art of keeping and cultivating a sense of wonder about life, and the people in your life.

115: Study Less, Do More: The Surprising Truths IFS Revealed

I've now been studying Internal Family Systems (IFS) for a long time, and it's taught me so much about myself that I decided to take an online course on it. But I don't really want to learn more about IFS to know IFS. I want to learn more about IFS so I can use it for my own inner work. And so rather than mastering the theory of more aspects of IFS, I decided to instead really focus on applying what I learned to myself, and just do one exercise I found particularly helpful again and again—and it led to some surprising discoveries about myself.  Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep115/  Connect with me: https://steliefti.com https://twitter.com/steli https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/ ...
