116: Bewunderung—Keeping Your Sense of Wonder Alive

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

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/ ...

114: Why You Need to Remind Yourself of the Greatness Within

114: Why You Need to Remind Yourself of the Greatness Within

A lot of spiritual practices try to teach you to become something or someone else, achieve a certain state of being. But you don't need that. Inner work is not about getting to some magical place where everything will be different. It's about living your own truth. You already are what you need to become. You already know what you need to know. Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep114/  Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

113: Michael Ende’s Weird Short Story: Einer langen Reise Ziel

We chat about a surreal short story by Michael Ende named "Einer langen Reise Ziel" (Destination of a Long Journey). It's the first story in his collection of short stories called Das Gefängnis der Freiheit (Prison of Freedom), and how "search and you shall find" might sometimes mean something very different from what we commonly assume.

111: Tricks of the Mind: I Was Thinking My Feelings

111: Tricks of the Mind: I Was Thinking My Feelings

I've always been a very cerebral person, relying primarily on my intellect to achieve my goals and solve problems I encounter. For a very long time, I equated the mind with myself. I viewed the body as a vehicle that just carries my mind. But as I started getting more in touch with my feelings, I also started paying more attention to my body—and began to realize that it's so much more than just a vehicle. The body has it's own wisdom. Recently I decided to pay more attention to what my body tells me—and soon caught my mind pretending to be my body.  When you bring mind, body, and soul in harmony, when you connect the different parts within you, then you also become whole and feel more connected with everything around you.  Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep111/  Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...
