Break apart your previous way of being.

The thing that you hold on to may actually be the thing that needs to break you apart for an entirely new way of living.

From Mindvalley’s Los Angeles stage, clinical psychologist and parenting expert, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, reveals how we’re living in a conditioned version of reality learned right from childhood, and that the first step to awakening is recognizing the illusion we’ve been living in.

Dr. Shefali explains how our notions of what we think of as ‘good’ and ‘bad’, ‘broken’ and ‘whole’ are actually all part of the illusory constructs we’ve been taught to believe. She explains how the distorted relationship we have with the world was rooted in the belief system we were instilled as children and how, as parents, we need to practice conscious awakening to shape a better future for the next generation.

If we don’t question, we don’t awaken.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How today’s generation of parents are even more dangerous than the previous (and why)
  • The P.I.C. and how we feel shame and unworthiness if we don’t fit into the matrix
  • How we think we’re making a choice but are actually only choosing within the choices presented to us
  • The parenting paradigm and why we need to denounce all our beliefs and let go of our identity
  • Why a child should be able to have 6, 7 or 8 names (this is interesting)
  • How our constant living in fear is actually an opportunity to grow
  • Categorical duality and how we’re being strung like puppets but may not even realize it
  • How the belief that we need a certain amount of status, material or body in order to be happy is a lie
  • Why Shefali became a clinical physiologist in the first place
  • What a smashed light bulb can teach us about our conditioned belief system

The logic with which we have created our justifications is our seduction, our trap. We justify everything based on a conditional reality.
