Show Notes

Segment 1

Georgeann opens her first segment of Journey Through by introducing Sam Liebowitz, author of the new best-selling book, Everyday Awakening, and fellow host on TalkRadio.nyc of The Conscious Consultant Hour. They touch upon all the interesting topics they’ll be discussing and share the meaning behind Sam’s book and how it connects to Georgeanns message.


Segment 2

Sam dives deeper into his process of publishing his new book. He tells his journey of receiving his testimonial from a good friend who has coached great mentors before they were who they are today. Through perseverance and many emails, he was able to get her testimonial. She not only read Sama book with a glowing testimonial, she shared that she couldn’t put the book down and really felt this book could be of service to people. This is something that stuck with Sam and led him to fully believe this book can change lives.


Segment 3

Next topic, how to deal with unexpected circumstances. “Life happens for us not to us” is a quote Sam shares with listeners hoping to enlighten them when dealing with a crisis. He then shares a direct quote from his book with listeners to give a little preview of what’s within his book. Some key points: Becoming the calm center in a horrific storm is the key to seeing things through. The world can relate to us more the more we share our struggles. Showing more than one side makes us two dimensional. All this and more can be found in “Everyday Awakening.”


Segment 4

In this final segment, Sam talks about the theme most important to him in the book. Showing up. This simple act is what changes your life. Next, Sam explains how inspiring and healthy it can be to change the narrative in your head into something positive. Changing your perception can change the way you live your everyday life. More knowledge like this can be found in Sam’s book. “Everyday Awakening” can be purchased on amazon. Interview ends with a closing prayer.

Sam is the owner of this radio station talk radio dot NYC and he's given me the opportunity to to be with my message on this radio show. So it's terrific. So I'm Sam. Can you talk a little bit about how did you become known as the conscious consultant, um,

00:02:13.440 --> 00:02:20.280 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Well, I kind of picked up that moniker probably about 1314 maybe 15 years ago.

00:02:21.420 --> 00:02:38.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because for so many years. I was just an entrepreneur and I'm a regular guy and I done several different businesses, half a dozen different businesses and bunch of different industries, everything from it. Video aerospace, all kinds of stuff.

00:02:39.630 --> 00:02:40.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And

00:02:42.090 --> 00:02:59.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's slowly but surely the universe kind of nudged me in the direction to get me back on my spiritual path and I started getting first back into personal development. After I got married, you know Tony Robbins T Harvey record all that stuff.

00:03:00.360 --> 00:03:15.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then from that, I kind of got exposed to a local group of people called the New York power team. They're still around. We used to meet like once a month, and they would bring in a speaker to talk about some particular

00:03:16.530 --> 00:03:25.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: modality method, something to for your personal development. And so a lot of people came in and they were talking about different kinds of healing methods.

00:03:25.380 --> 00:03:28.830 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Things energy healing all this kinds of stuff I'd never heard of before.

00:03:29.730 --> 00:03:42.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I started taking these workshops, not because I ever thought of myself as a healer or that I wanted to be a healer, but more for my own healing because I'd been on a very difficult path early in life.

00:03:42.810 --> 00:03:48.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I knew that there was still a lot of emotional healing that needed to be done underneath the surface.

00:03:49.230 --> 00:04:00.840 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I started taking them and it was probably a good two or three years into taking all different kinds of things, the Sedona Method Brandon basis. The journey became a Reiki master all this stuff.

00:04:01.410 --> 00:04:14.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then I was in this one weekend workshop where you know they teach you a method. And then they pair you up, or they have you demonstrated and you work with somebody and you do the method. And so I

00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:22.260 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I got paired up with this woman was still actually good friends to the day because she doesn't have that far from me.

00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:28.260 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And you know they they called up after lunchtime. They said that what would would somebody be willing to

00:04:28.770 --> 00:04:34.770 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Like to get worked on this woman raises her hand, and she's like Oh my lungs are all congested. I feel like I'm about to

00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:39.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Come down with the flu. I'd love for someone to work on me and. Okay, great. Come on up. And they're like,

00:04:39.300 --> 00:04:47.850 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Man would like to try working on there and not too many people raise their hands and I'm in the back. And I'm like, whoa, I really want to try this out, I got my hand. Way up high and they pick on me and I come up

00:04:48.390 --> 00:05:03.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I do this method with her non hands on form of energy healing very fast. And after about 510 minutes doing it. I'm like, So how do you feel, she's like oh wow I feel great. I can breathe. I go, that's good, because no no no, listen. And she goes,

00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:11.490 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You hear that I have no congestion. That's amazing. But go, Oh, that's wonderful. I'm so happy for you because no no no. You don't understand.

00:05:11.820 --> 00:05:20.460 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I've been suffering from chronic bronchitis, since I was six years old and South Africa. I haven't been able to breathe like this since I was a little girl and I was like oh my god

00:05:21.300 --> 00:05:27.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so it like the light bulb went off and it was like, oh, so this isn't just for me like I can use all the

00:05:27.990 --> 00:05:38.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Stuff I've been learning to help other people. It's like, what do you do with this. I'm like, I'm an entrepreneur. I'm a consultant. I'm a coach, I'm I work with people on business issues. What do you do with this.

00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:44.280 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that's where the idea of like, well, I'm still kind of a coach and a consultant. I'm just a

00:05:44.700 --> 00:05:55.500 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Different kinds. So it's more about sort of taking these ideas and these things that I've learned and and using them to help people get past any

00:05:55.890 --> 00:06:08.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Kind of block or challenge that they're dealing with in their life. And so that's how I got known as the conscious consultant. And back then, you know, things weren't quite as open as they are now. I mean, people are much more

00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:10.800 Georgeann Dau: I feel ago is this and

00:06:11.370 --> 00:06:14.250 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Like I said, it's about 13 1415 years ago.

00:06:15.810 --> 00:06:19.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so to me, I don't know about you, George and but it seems like people are much more

00:06:19.200 --> 00:06:28.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Open to sort of this conversation. And back then. I was just like, you know, if I'm going to do this. I have to be authentic, I can't like

00:06:28.470 --> 00:06:34.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, hide on the side or whatever. So I literally I remember the night I changed my LinkedIn profile.

00:06:34.710 --> 00:06:47.970 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I like the conscious consultant got the URL, the conscious consultant set up the website started offering sessions to like a handful of friends for free. Just to get some testimonials and haven't looked back.

00:06:48.540 --> 00:07:07.560 Georgeann Dau: That's so great. Oh, that's such a great, great introduction to who you are. And it sounds like God really touched you. God, the universe, whatever it is for you touch you and let you know what your giftedness is in that workshop, it really opens it up for you.

00:07:07.770 --> 00:07:18.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yeah. Yeah. And I mean, I've done a lot of work, even before that workshop. I've been working on my intuition and like I said I'd become a Reiki master, I didn't. A lot of stuff.

00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:28.950 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But you know really the whole thing started. Much, much earlier. It started like 25 years before when I was in college where I met these friends and I'd sort of got

00:07:29.670 --> 00:07:33.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Thrown into the deep end of a very sort of spiritual experience at the time.

00:07:34.350 --> 00:07:48.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But it went south relatively quickly. And although I was involved with them for a number of years, supporting and helping. It was very, very difficult and eventually had to extricate myself from that situation.

00:07:49.770 --> 00:08:01.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so much of my identity was tied up in what I believe that the time and because so many people were telling me, Oh, you're crazy while you're doing this, that it up and and so it was kind of like because

00:08:02.100 --> 00:08:14.490 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: People were giving me such a hard time about it. So I resisted and, you know, I'm like, No, this is this. This is that until then, once I kind of got out of it and how it's like I didn't know what to believe, and I didn't know

00:08:15.750 --> 00:08:24.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Was there spirit or there wasn't like how could this be, How can things go so wrong if this was divinely guided or whatever. And so I just

00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:32.430 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, I really was lost for a long time. And that's why I just kind of became an entrepreneur and I just really focused on

00:08:33.030 --> 00:08:41.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know making money building businesses because I just didn't know what else to do, and it's just to me kind of funny because

00:08:41.670 --> 00:08:48.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If the universe had, like, thrown me back into spirituality and put me back on my path in a very strong way.

00:08:48.450 --> 00:08:55.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Very quickly I would have gotten running in the opposite direction. I'm like, No, no, no, no. This stuff's crazy. Now I'm not going doing that again.

00:08:55.920 --> 00:09:10.260 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Instead, it was a very slow kind of little step here, little step their little step here, a little step there and now it's like you know 15 years later, and I like in the thick of it, as they say.

00:09:10.980 --> 00:09:14.640 Georgeann Dau: That's terrific. Could you talk a little bit about your book.

00:09:15.660 --> 00:09:20.910 Georgeann Dau: Do you mind what's going on. What is the book about in what is some of the chapters about

00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:32.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And sure, I'm happy to. So this book is is kind of a culmination of the best of my blog posts, so about, you know, five, six years ago.

00:09:33.420 --> 00:09:44.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: For my newsletter. I was I wanted to have a little extra content. So I started writing a blog and it was feel kind of became part of my process and in the beginning. They weren't so good.

00:09:45.390 --> 00:09:52.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But then over time I used it as a way of just like kind of being present what was going on inside of me and around me.

00:09:54.840 --> 00:10:00.300 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I just, you know, write these short things. You know, because a blog. It's not long format.

00:10:01.980 --> 00:10:13.650 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And just how I saw things I didn't necessarily go into the details of what I was going through, but I more just talked about the lesson behind it and the perspective and how it served me

00:10:14.820 --> 00:10:20.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so over the years, my writing got better and better because I was also working on myself than the whole time.

00:10:21.840 --> 00:10:28.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I started getting messages from people. Oh, I loved your blog today was just what I needed to hear.

00:10:28.920 --> 00:10:34.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Oh, this was wonderful. And then, and then this lovely woman who lives in the building next to me, who is a PR person.

00:10:34.650 --> 00:10:42.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: She was like, Sam. These are great when you're going to get these published, you got to put it in a book and for like two years. I think she's been after me to like put these blogs in the book.

00:10:43.830 --> 00:10:48.630 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And. And it's funny because originally. Actually this was going to be my second book.

00:10:49.350 --> 00:10:59.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: My first book was going to be. I had started working with this woman to take a bunch of my episodes of my of my show like your show.

00:10:59.460 --> 00:11:09.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I picked out like 13 episodes. I was going to get them. We got them transcribed and then we're going to work with a ghost editor to create a story around and that was going to like define my body of work for me.

00:11:10.320 --> 00:11:18.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But then the woman who is the ghost writer. I didn't hear from her didn't hear from her didn't hear from her. This was just last year in 2019

00:11:18.720 --> 00:11:28.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then all of a sudden I like reach out to my friend who was managing the project. And I was like, hey, shine as I'm like not hearing anything what's going on. She goes, Oh, I'll find out. I'll get back to you.

00:11:28.770 --> 00:11:34.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Didn't hear anything didn't hear anything didn't. Finally, I'm like, What's going on, she got back to me. She goes, Oh no, and

00:11:35.550 --> 00:11:40.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: She got into a bad car accident visiting her family, she's in the hospital and she wasn't a young woman.

00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:51.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So she's like she she can't work right now it's going to be a long time this and then I was like, Okay, well, can you just get what she did, because I had several phone calls from her. We developed a really nice rapport.

00:11:52.320 --> 00:11:58.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And she couldn't. And so she said, I'm sorry, I can't do anything. And this was like September, October.

00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:12.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Of 2019, you know, it's just a little over a year ago. And so she gave me my money back and said, here the transcripts. That's all I really have like okay and so that was like November and so December, January of this year, I was like,

00:12:14.640 --> 00:12:17.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I just feel called to come out with a book.

00:12:17.640 --> 00:12:24.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But obviously, I'm not going to do that. And I kind of felt there was the way the universe should have trying to say to me, I think Sam, you need to be the one

00:12:24.420 --> 00:12:30.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Going through those transcripts not somebody else. So I'm like, Okay, that's going to take more time and more effort than I have right now.

00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:38.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What can I do this year. Well, let me do the blog book, which was going to be my second book. And let me do that this year and then

00:12:38.820 --> 00:12:47.130 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You saw I started talking with a couple of people I knew who like help people publish books and stuff. And then the lockdown came and I was like,

00:12:47.940 --> 00:13:01.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, I see a lot of people being in fear. A lot of people don't know what to do. I said, I'm not going to be in fear. Let me do something that's an investment in myself to come out with a book this year and and that

00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then that's that's what this book came out to be it.

00:13:06.930 --> 00:13:07.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I

00:13:08.460 --> 00:13:13.110 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: hired a professional editor. We sifted through hundreds of blog posts.

00:13:14.160 --> 00:13:26.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Came down sorted it into seven chapters. She tightened it up for me and and I took 126 of my blog posts and put it into the book and that's

00:13:26.850 --> 00:13:46.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then we just launched this book on November 17 and and thankfully I had so many people supporting me and really over the years, who've seen me and always shown up for in the past. They came showed up for me. So we hit number one, actually, in three different categories on Amazon.

00:13:46.860 --> 00:13:49.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And this is a self published book. I don't have a publisher.

00:13:49.590 --> 00:14:08.190 Georgeann Dau: It's so great. I love hearing about it. So we're going to take a brief break and we'll be back in about a minute. Okay, thank you so much. And we're here with Sam Liebowitz and I'm Dr. Tao, and this is the journey through looking forward to speaking with you when we come back. Thank you.

00:16:24.930 --> 00:16:37.200 Georgeann Dau: Welcome back. I'm Dr. George and down. We're here tonight with Sam Leibowitz author of every day awakening. So Sam. Would you say that

00:16:38.910 --> 00:16:41.160 Georgeann Dau: Everyday awakening is a little bit of a memoir.

00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:53.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Not really, because I don't actually probably more the second book you know cuz and what was my first book is going to become my second book because I don't really get into the story too much.

00:16:55.170 --> 00:17:05.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it's more like just different perspectives and different ways of looking at things to help people to realize that we actually are much more powerful than we realize.

00:17:05.820 --> 00:17:13.350 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that with these little shifts and these little changes that we can actually make a huge difference in our life.

00:17:13.950 --> 00:17:25.050 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I stick to something because they're short, there's only like each one of these is only like a page or two long that none of them are really that long. So they're bite size. They're

00:17:25.320 --> 00:17:34.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: They're one of the, it's the kind of book that you just randomly open to a page and you're going to read that, you know, one page thing and that's going to be your little message for the day. So I kind of

00:17:35.220 --> 00:17:50.310 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Didn't put my own story into it so much, but just kept it to be about what's a different way of looking something. What's a different perspective. What's a way that can empower people to feel like they do have more control.

00:17:50.910 --> 00:18:01.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I just felt like this is a very timely book because so many people feel so disempowered by the pandemic and the lockdown and everything that's going on.

00:18:02.640 --> 00:18:11.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That it felt like this is something that can really support people in a time when we need more support than ever before in my opinion.

00:18:12.840 --> 00:18:13.950 Georgeann Dau: It sounds like the

00:18:15.360 --> 00:18:25.800 Georgeann Dau: You make good use. Not that we would want it, but you made good use of the pandemic right you gave us all something that's very much needed and you use the time well

00:18:26.550 --> 00:18:27.630 Georgeann Dau: Well for us.

00:18:29.610 --> 00:18:38.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Over the last six and a half years I've been doing this. I've been engaged in this shamanic practice, which I've recently become a facilitator in and

00:18:39.120 --> 00:18:49.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's really helped me tremendously to deepen my own work and it always hasn't always been easy. It's been very difficult at times to really look

00:18:51.660 --> 00:18:55.110 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: At the truth about myself how I show up.

00:18:56.040 --> 00:18:57.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Everything going on.

00:18:58.650 --> 00:19:12.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, and also because of that work. I had grown to be a lot more flexible and adaptable and to be okay when things shift and change because you never know what happens. And so when the pandemic hit

00:19:14.220 --> 00:19:18.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Not that I was necessarily prepared. But in some ways.

00:19:19.740 --> 00:19:40.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Spiritually psychologically internally. I was prepared to have to to shift everything and and there's a Buddhist principle about how suffering comes from Resisting what is. And so I had learned that lesson over the last few years. So when this came. I just didn't resist it.

00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:48.240 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yes. Um, so I just kind of flowed with what was happening. So the first thing was to take the radio station and go

00:19:48.450 --> 00:19:58.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Completely virtual because we used to do everything in person in studio. We didn't have a virtual option at all because I just didn't think the audio quality of any of the options available. Was that good.

00:19:59.370 --> 00:20:07.260 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Shifted that over a weekend and then it was okay, you know, what am I going to do to support people besides that.

00:20:08.280 --> 00:20:12.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so it was like, it's time to do the book I wanted it to come out this year.

00:20:13.320 --> 00:20:28.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, so, yeah, it's I'm buying not resisting. What is it was able to take advantage of the time and. And believe me, I kind of feel since April, May. I've been busy have been for years, the truth.

00:20:28.770 --> 00:20:38.820 Georgeann Dau: Isn't it the truth. Um, it's a very good point, what you said about the Buddhist principle. And I think I've spoken about it a little bit from this content context that

00:20:39.990 --> 00:20:46.170 Georgeann Dau: When we feel that we cannot control it feels like suffering and it's really the same thing.

00:20:46.650 --> 00:20:54.450 Georgeann Dau: Yes, really the same exact thing. And, you know, accepting reality is seems to be the hardest thing for all human beings.

00:20:54.930 --> 00:21:03.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right and and that comes from our trauma, you know, you've talked a lot on your show about trauma and the need to control comes from trauma, because we don't feel safe.

00:21:03.450 --> 00:21:06.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's as if we feel safe. We don't need to worry about control.

00:21:07.740 --> 00:21:22.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But ultimately, there's only one thing we can control, really, we have no control over the external world, we have no control over other people, we have no control over governments any corporations anything but we do have complete control.

00:21:22.860 --> 00:21:27.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Over how we show up in the world over how we respond to any given situation.

00:21:28.650 --> 00:21:44.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: How, what is our energy, our attitude, our perspective, like that we have complete 100% sovereignty over and that's what I really want people to understand that that's not a little thing that's actually a big thing.

00:21:44.940 --> 00:21:58.650 Georgeann Dau: It's a huge thing. And in order to do that we have to face what we're thinking we have to come. We have to come in touch with what we're thinking how we're showing up.

00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:15.360 Georgeann Dau: And allow ourselves to look at that, in truth, because I think what stops everyone from that is people were ashamed and as soon as they feel that they're wrong and they if they were ashamed. Growing up, they go into that and it stops them so

00:22:15.570 --> 00:22:19.200 Georgeann Dau: It doesn't necessarily have to be that way. That's great. Sam. Great.

00:22:19.740 --> 00:22:28.260 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it could be shame. It could be trauma sometimes like getting in touch with your feelings. It's just too scary for a lot of people, especially a lot of men.

00:22:28.830 --> 00:22:38.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And you know, it's interesting. My friend of mine, actually, the woman who I healed of that condition, we had a conversation over the summertime.

00:22:38.700 --> 00:22:55.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And she's now really into TM she Transcendental Meditation. She meditates every day and she said to me, and it was really struck me what she said. She goes, Sam, you know, for people like you and me. If we can't go outside. We can go inside, but there are people out there that

00:22:55.950 --> 00:22:58.260 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is hard time going inside

00:22:58.290 --> 00:23:00.240 Georgeann Dau: Yes. Why do you think that is

00:23:02.070 --> 00:23:12.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's not safe. If there's there's so much trauma. I mean, my wife is a psycho therapist. I mean, you're a psychoanalyst. So it's a little bit different but but I know from

00:23:12.780 --> 00:23:18.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: My wife and her telling me about some of her cases and things that there's so much trauma.

00:23:19.380 --> 00:23:33.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: In the world. I mean, from the time were little babies and people don't understand that even little things can be traumatic like a parent slamming the door closed by accident. For a little baby can be a trauma.

00:23:33.690 --> 00:23:44.940 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Absolutely and neglect is traumatic to a lot of people don't have the like emotional, physical, verbal abuse that some people have

00:23:45.660 --> 00:23:58.110 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But they may have the trauma of being neglected because the parents were just too caught up in their own stuff. So they were completely unavailable either physically or emotionally for the children and

00:23:58.110 --> 00:23:59.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What they needed at the time.

00:23:59.910 --> 00:24:03.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yes. So, I mean, everybody has trauma.

00:24:04.140 --> 00:24:10.830 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yes, there's a, there's a, it's not black or white. There's a whole big scale of it and it's just

00:24:12.870 --> 00:24:22.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If we're not taught how to deal with it if we're not taught how to work through it. If we're not taught how to use it, actually, to our advantage. Instead of

00:24:23.010 --> 00:24:26.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, just feeling the pain and that's all we know is pain.

00:24:27.480 --> 00:24:49.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It makes it very challenging to take that little step inside and. However, for the people who are brave enough for the people who feel called and and I have a big belief that everybody has their own unique path and and nobody else knows when they are actually ready to deal with things.

00:24:50.040 --> 00:24:57.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But it when they're ready. Nothing is going to stop them. And if they're not ready. Nothing you can do is bring them to that point.

00:24:57.810 --> 00:24:59.010 Georgeann Dau: Where they're going to look at their

00:24:59.010 --> 00:24:59.940 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Stuff you know

00:25:00.000 --> 00:25:02.460 Georgeann Dau: Yes, absolutely. And

00:25:05.490 --> 00:25:10.110 Georgeann Dau: Yes, there is a lot of drama. I don't want to go off, go off topic. Yeah.

00:25:14.430 --> 00:25:25.560 Georgeann Dau: What did you learn about yourself. Sam through the process of writing everyday awakening. What was the biggest thing that you you got in touch with from writing that

00:25:27.150 --> 00:25:39.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Well, I mean, one of the things is, I just enjoyed the process tremendously of working with an editor. It's my first time working with a professional editor. I enjoyed the process. So I know this is only, only the first book, The many more to come.

00:25:39.570 --> 00:25:40.740 Georgeann Dau: In the second book.

00:25:41.400 --> 00:25:44.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Now, maybe I have to

00:25:44.220 --> 00:25:46.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Say I have one friend suggested

00:25:46.050 --> 00:25:46.530 Name.

00:25:48.420 --> 00:25:58.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because I like to say I'm only one degree into Pisces because I'm my astrological chart. I have a lot of planets in Aquarius. And you know, when I look at the papers.

00:25:59.910 --> 00:26:10.500 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I always look at both Aquarius and Pisces because it's always like half and half, for me, so maybe one degree into Pisces, because that's what I like to say in France of that make a good name for a book. So maybe that I don't know. I'll see

00:26:10.860 --> 00:26:15.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We'll see. But, but, but I don't want people to think it'll be a book about astrology, because it won't

00:26:15.180 --> 00:26:16.350 Georgeann Dau: Be no no that's

00:26:16.350 --> 00:26:16.650 Right.

00:26:19.290 --> 00:26:22.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But really what I think I learned through this whole process.

00:26:23.730 --> 00:26:24.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Was

00:26:25.980 --> 00:26:32.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: How much the external for myself, personally, how much the external validation

00:26:33.570 --> 00:26:41.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I helped me to feel that I created something of value, you know, because I came up with this book, I worked with the editor.

00:26:42.360 --> 00:26:49.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But until other people start to read it, you don't really know, like is it is it good. Is it worthwhile is there's something really here, or am I just

00:26:50.190 --> 00:26:55.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: fooling myself because it's very easy to feel like when you create something

00:26:55.860 --> 00:27:07.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: In a vacuum or maybe just a friend or two reads it and they say, oh, it's great, it's great, but they don't necessarily, you know, they may just be nice. They may not be telling you the truth, but what got me to really

00:27:08.670 --> 00:27:23.010 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Understand that there was something of value in the book was I had sent copies to to several people that I know who are in the transformational space to task them ahead of time if they would give me a testimonial that I can put in the book.

00:27:24.090 --> 00:27:30.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And there was this one woman who I've known for a little while and and I hold her in very high esteem, because

00:27:31.050 --> 00:27:38.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: She was Deepak Chopra's coach before Deepak Chopra was Deepak Chopra, you know what I mean, she's been in this for a long, long time.

00:27:39.210 --> 00:27:45.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I was waiting to get a testimonial back from her. I didn't, I didn't get it. And she's like, Oh, I'm just launching this program. I'm sorry.

00:27:45.630 --> 00:27:52.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Okay, no problem. And so we're getting up close to the deadline to finalizing the manuscript I reached back out to her and she's like, Oh, just give me to the end of the week.

00:27:53.490 --> 00:27:58.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I'm waiting and then Friday morning, I get the email from her. And she goes, Sam, you know,

00:27:59.220 --> 00:28:04.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When people ask me to write a testimonial. I don't do it unless I actually read the material.

00:28:04.830 --> 00:28:17.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And see that there's value in it. She goes, I, I couldn't put your book down. I kept reading it until two o'clock in the morning. Last night I loved it. Here's my testimony and she gave me a beautiful testimonial. And it just like

00:28:18.090 --> 00:28:32.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know someone like that who has decades and decades and decades in in this genre of personal and spiritual development. If she says that it's good, then I'm like oh okay like

00:28:32.250 --> 00:28:32.520 That's

00:28:33.750 --> 00:28:35.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Something in here. Okay, I got a guy.

00:28:36.000 --> 00:28:45.150 Georgeann Dau: Well, I'm interested in knowing more about it. We're gonna take a break. We'll be right back with Sam Leibowitz on a journey through. Thank you.

00:31:13.290 --> 00:31:25.350 Georgeann Dau: Hi, welcome back. I'm Dr. George and down. You have tuned into a journey through into awareness and we have the privilege of having Sam Leibowitz here with us tonight.

00:31:25.890 --> 00:31:38.370 Georgeann Dau: With his fantastic first book everyday awakening, you are more powerful than, you know, fantastic. So I'm definitely going to you, you need to get me a signed copy

00:31:39.570 --> 00:31:42.300 Georgeann Dau: Absolutely. God wants me

00:31:44.100 --> 00:31:47.130 Georgeann Dau: So, um, what would you say um

00:31:49.980 --> 00:31:52.890 Georgeann Dau: Talked about so many interesting things so far, um,

00:31:55.470 --> 00:31:57.210 Georgeann Dau: What would you say is

00:31:58.560 --> 00:32:08.280 Georgeann Dau: The most helpful thing from your own individual journey in the writings that has helped you with the unexpected in your life.

00:32:11.190 --> 00:32:12.420 Georgeann Dau: Was I clear enough with that.

00:32:13.470 --> 00:32:16.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yeah yeah I got it. And you know what's helped me with them with the

00:32:17.010 --> 00:32:20.550 Georgeann Dau: Unexpected dealing with the most unexpected circumstances.

00:32:22.860 --> 00:32:24.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I think it's the

00:32:25.500 --> 00:32:29.760 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's one of the first posts, one of the first essays in the book.

00:32:30.300 --> 00:32:31.200 Georgeann Dau: It could you read

00:32:31.860 --> 00:32:35.490 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Sure, its life happens for us not to us.

00:32:35.640 --> 00:32:36.810 Georgeann Dau: That's great.

00:32:36.930 --> 00:32:39.210 Georgeann Dau: And that's very important thing to remember.

00:32:39.420 --> 00:32:48.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And this is something that I got from my dear friend, Jennifer Huff, who I know from the evolutionary Business Council, they went for a weekend training down in Nashville with her.

00:32:48.720 --> 00:32:58.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it was one of the first things she said during this weekend. And it just so resonated with me. It was just like, move. And I was like, yeah, totally.

00:32:59.040 --> 00:33:02.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it was when I got back from that weekend. This was the next blog post I wrote

00:33:03.420 --> 00:33:13.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We've all had a crisis in our lives. And when we do, we can feel like the whole world is against us, we can feel powerless in that situation and nothing could be further from the truth.

00:33:14.640 --> 00:33:24.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We can feel like victims, we can feel as if nothing we do makes any difference. The real issue is not what happens. The real issue is our perspective.

00:33:24.960 --> 00:33:43.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Our emotions can make us feel that life happens to us, actually, life happens for us. It's a small word a tiny change in a sentence. Yeah, that makes all the difference. Life happens for us not to us.

00:33:43.830 --> 00:33:53.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So what does that mean, how does changing that one little word help it means that everything that happens is here to serve us in some way.

00:33:54.300 --> 00:33:59.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Maybe we can see it in the moment, especially when we do not yet have some distance

00:33:59.910 --> 00:34:08.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: With time things begin to look different slowly over time, which seems like a horrible thing turns out to be our greatest gift.

00:34:09.570 --> 00:34:22.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It may be a defining moment in our lives. It may be the very thing that launches us onto our new path. It may be the one thing that completely transforms the trajectory of our future.

00:34:23.160 --> 00:34:33.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: How do we know in the moment we don't yet if we approach it with the perspective that it is happening for us. Suddenly we find peace.

00:34:34.290 --> 00:34:42.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We become the comm center in a chaotic storm, the whole perspective shifts and we are more open to see other possibilities.

00:34:43.050 --> 00:34:53.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We are the very person. We need to be to see it through. It may not seem like it at the time it may feel like the greatest challenge we have ever faced.

00:34:53.760 --> 00:35:01.350 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Or perhaps it is just a small inconvenience, regardless of what it is, it is happening for us not to us.

00:35:02.100 --> 00:35:11.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You don't have to believe it. Just try it on. Does it help do you feel better, more empowered. Does that perspective serve you.

00:35:12.540 --> 00:35:27.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If it does, then why not use it. What's the worst that could happen if you do there is magic in life and greater magic and believing and acting as if all happens for us not to us.

00:35:27.810 --> 00:35:36.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Are you willing to try it on. Are you willing to test it out, try living as if life happens for you and see how you feel.

00:35:37.380 --> 00:35:38.460 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yeah, so

00:35:38.550 --> 00:35:41.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So that's fantastic. One little

00:35:41.970 --> 00:35:47.250 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Taste of what's in the book. And that's just one. There's the hundred and 25 others that

00:35:47.670 --> 00:35:58.830 Georgeann Dau: I love the one you chose and I'm excited to spend time with your book. I'm really excited, um, you know, a very big piece. I was thinking when you were reading there.

00:35:59.430 --> 00:36:12.060 Georgeann Dau: When I was teaching a class one day the girl came up to me at the break a woman and said, you know, the one thing that really, really stuck with me that I never heard before, is we're not our feelings.

00:36:13.170 --> 00:36:29.370 Georgeann Dau: When we feel something, it can feel so intense that we identify with it is as it's all there is. It is me. But we're not our feelings feelings and things we have. And that's great, Sam. That's what I was picking up from what you spoke about really great so

00:36:29.490 --> 00:36:37.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's not only that feelings are what we have. But when we're mindful about our feelings we can actually use them to serve us

00:36:37.500 --> 00:36:39.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Well, we're not victims to our feelings.

00:36:40.020 --> 00:36:49.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That's right. We're generators of our feelings and that's part of the idea of we are more powerful than we know when we realized that we generate so much

00:36:50.880 --> 00:37:00.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Of our feelings based on our stories that we keep telling ourselves over and over again. We can change any in any instant, we can shift and change and

00:37:00.660 --> 00:37:12.690 Georgeann Dau: Adapt but we end, we first have to see what the dialogue is in our head to know what we need to change. And that's what I talk about when I look at scripture

00:37:12.990 --> 00:37:23.610 Georgeann Dau: And now everyone that came before Jesus. He could see what they needed, he would ask them What is it you want me to do for you, because unless we name it and claim it we can accept

00:37:24.630 --> 00:37:30.930 Georgeann Dau: Anything about it. And that's what I'm getting a lot of what you're saying today. It's great. I'm so

00:37:32.280 --> 00:37:48.870 Georgeann Dau: What was, what would you say to our listeners. Um, and I love that one. But give us another one. What is it that it's helped us to do what, what can help us to deal with the ordinary difficult circumstances of our lives.

00:37:51.000 --> 00:37:53.310 Georgeann Dau: Well, when I'm going to do our life. Yeah.

00:37:53.370 --> 00:37:56.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What I'm gonna do, I'm just going to randomly flip open to a page and see

00:37:56.700 --> 00:37:57.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Where we land because this is

00:37:58.500 --> 00:38:05.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Like one of the ways that I feel the book can help us most like I don't see this as a book necessarily that you just read cover to cover.

00:38:05.550 --> 00:38:15.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You can I mean I've divided up into seven chapters based on the energies of the shockers so they kind of build one on another until you get to the last one.

00:38:15.660 --> 00:38:29.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But I kind of feel like you just randomly flip open to a page and and like, that's your message for that day. So the one I just flipped open to his number 42 which is our strongest moments happen when we are most vulnerable.

00:38:31.440 --> 00:38:36.990 Georgeann Dau: I was just thinking that Sam. Look at that. I love that it's

00:38:37.620 --> 00:38:39.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's, it's all perfect

00:38:39.720 --> 00:38:41.010 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that's just something

00:38:41.040 --> 00:38:49.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We all long for even with our own family, even with our own community yet connection only happens when there is vulnerability

00:38:50.130 --> 00:39:00.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: are we vulnerable enough to tell our friends that we are going through a rough time are we vulnerable enough to tell our brother or sister about the trauma we experienced as a child that they never knew about

00:39:01.590 --> 00:39:06.930 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: are we vulnerable enough to tell those around us that we are not sure what to do next.

00:39:07.560 --> 00:39:15.960 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We think we have to keep it keep on an air of I've got it all together in order for our friends to think we're okay.

00:39:16.590 --> 00:39:26.970 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We think if we show the world we are hurting. It will only punish us more actually the world can relate to us more if we share our struggles in our pain.

00:39:27.390 --> 00:39:37.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The more human, we make ourselves, the more comfortable people feel around us, the more honest, we are about what is really going on inside us. The closer

00:39:38.250 --> 00:39:47.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Our partners will feel to us. The to only show one side of ourselves to others creates a one dimensional image of who we are.

00:39:48.660 --> 00:39:58.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We are so much more complex and intricate we are full of contradictions and paradoxes. And if we allow ourselves to show that to the world at large.

00:39:59.550 --> 00:40:10.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Or just to our best friend, then we can create a deeper connection to say to your boss or your clients that you don't know how to handle something as brave.

00:40:10.920 --> 00:40:19.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: As long as it is followed by a request for help to find out what to do next. They will reward your our bravery.

00:40:19.950 --> 00:40:32.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If we don't express ourselves because of fear, we may hurt ourselves, we may hurt a reputation and trust worthiness in their eyes to be trustworthy, we must be honest and vulnerable with them.

00:40:33.150 --> 00:40:45.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: For others, to feel that we are safe, we must be honest about what is really going on. Some sometimes even we ourselves. Don't know what is going on inside of us.

00:40:46.110 --> 00:40:56.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When this happens, we can be honest about that as well being vulnerable may seem as if we are being weak, but nothing is further from the truth.

00:40:56.970 --> 00:41:11.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Our strongest moments happen when we are being the most vulnerable. Is there a place in your life that being more vulnerable will serve you. Can you open up and be honest about something that is scary to share with somebody you trust.

00:41:15.120 --> 00:41:33.930 Georgeann Dau: Just great great material salmon so beautifully put together very helpful daily readings. There are a lot of books out there, but they don't get the mark in my opinion it's just my opinion this really hits the more really it's it. I love it.

00:41:34.440 --> 00:41:40.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And again, I don't necessarily put in my personal story around it.

00:41:41.970 --> 00:41:45.210 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Be because sometimes we get too tied up in the story.

00:41:45.270 --> 00:41:50.490 Georgeann Dau: Absolutely. But I want to interrupt you for a moment. But there's something very important with what you just said.

00:41:52.860 --> 00:41:56.910 Georgeann Dau: You don't need to tell the details around a story.

00:41:58.080 --> 00:42:08.730 Georgeann Dau: To write this, this what you just read this, which you wrote says volumes about you because in order to write that you have faced that

00:42:10.170 --> 00:42:26.730 Georgeann Dau: You have the capacity to live out of that. So you don't even need the story. This says everything so much about your capacity and ability Sam to allow yourself to be vulnerable to allow yourself to struggle, really great.

00:42:27.750 --> 00:42:28.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and

00:42:29.400 --> 00:42:34.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But my point in doing this, is it and I appreciate the praise. Thank you so much. Trojan

00:42:36.240 --> 00:42:41.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But it's really, I wanted to be in service to others.

00:42:41.340 --> 00:42:59.250 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yeah, I do it as an example that other people can be vulnerable and and and you can be human. And you can be a little bit gentler with yourself. We don't have to be so harsh with ourselves, you know, we were so tough on ourselves. And we're so like beating ourselves up over so many things.

00:43:01.500 --> 00:43:19.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it's not about that. I really just want to inspire people to be more of themselves. I try and and and in a way, bare my soul to the reader without getting personal about it.

00:43:19.170 --> 00:43:32.790 Georgeann Dau: Yes, exactly. It's exactly what I was saying, yeah, thank you for articulating it better than I did. So we're gonna take a break in one minute. But before that, um,

00:43:34.290 --> 00:43:36.270 Georgeann Dau: When we come back I want to talk about

00:43:38.070 --> 00:43:50.130 Georgeann Dau: A broad takeaway that you can give our listeners about your book about the message of your book and what you would like to

00:43:51.480 --> 00:44:04.980 Georgeann Dau: Have them here and embrace from what we shared tonight. So when we come back we will take a look at that. Thank you so much for joining us and we'll see you in a little bit with Sam Leibowitz. Thank you.

00:44:12.300 --> 00:44:12.480 And

00:46:36.210 --> 00:46:49.380 Georgeann Dau: Hi, welcome back with Sam Leibowitz and introducing his wonderful new book everyday awakening. So Sam, what do you think about that, that what I left with before break

00:46:49.800 --> 00:46:50.850 Georgeann Dau: Can you talk about that.

00:46:51.210 --> 00:47:00.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Sure, sure. I just want to give a quick shout out on the Facebook Live. I see. Anthony says great show. So thank you. Anthony glad you're enjoying it and getting something out of it.

00:47:00.390 --> 00:47:02.580 Georgeann Dau: Yes. That's great. That's my brother in law.

00:47:03.150 --> 00:47:04.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Ah, yes.

00:47:05.700 --> 00:47:07.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Sister, I never had.

00:47:08.190 --> 00:47:13.440 Georgeann Dau: He must really love it, say you love right he never said that about me.

00:47:14.760 --> 00:47:16.020 Georgeann Dau: To teasing.

00:47:16.350 --> 00:47:21.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: He said you're the little sister, he never had. So, pretty good. Um,

00:47:23.490 --> 00:47:27.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So there are a number of themes that kind of run throughout the book.

00:47:29.370 --> 00:47:33.630 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But the one that I think I want people to

00:47:34.890 --> 00:47:36.390 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Really take to heart.

00:47:37.920 --> 00:47:51.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is so much about how we show up in the world and how we feel about ourselves and other people come from the stories that we tell ourselves over and over again in our head.

00:47:52.350 --> 00:47:54.930 Georgeann Dau: And where the stories come from, in your opinion, Sam.

00:47:57.000 --> 00:48:03.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Life our parents, most of the time they're usually if you listen to the

00:48:04.380 --> 00:48:16.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Quality of that voice inside your head. It's like, whose voices that it could be a usually a parent's voice, you know, potentially a sibling, but usually a parents voice or grandparents voice depends who raised them.

00:48:19.230 --> 00:48:26.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But the thing we usually don't realize is that those stories are all made up.

00:48:27.660 --> 00:48:31.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Now the actual facts about what happened may be true.

00:48:33.180 --> 00:48:36.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But the story is the interpretation of the facts.

00:48:37.980 --> 00:48:55.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, you know, like this was pointed out to me. I was at a seminar and the gentleman. It was all about like money mindset and things like that. And the gentleman was onstage and he was talking about how this one particular event like really sort of traumatized him as a child.

00:48:56.310 --> 00:49:07.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That that men are untrustworthy with money and that you know his dad and he had this coin collection that was this try prize treasure and he used to keep it under the kitchen sink.

00:49:07.410 --> 00:49:15.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and and one morning he goes there and it's gone, and he asks his mom. Where is. And she's like, Oh, I don't know, I think your father might have taken

00:49:16.200 --> 00:49:32.430 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And he asked his dad his dad doesn't remember. And he goes, looking around in their bedroom that day and he finds the thing of coins like under his dad side of the bed and he's like oh you took my coins. I knew it. And, and, and, you know, for years, decades. He lived with this story.

00:49:33.660 --> 00:49:36.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That men are on trustworthy with money.

00:49:37.320 --> 00:49:48.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Until like you know he was you know 30 something 40 something years old and he was flying back into his hometown to do a seminar and his dad picked him up the airport.

00:49:48.870 --> 00:49:58.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: They had this thing and he finally worked up enough courage to confront him about this in any relates the story. And he goes, you know, when I was a kid. You took my coins and then

00:50:00.390 --> 00:50:08.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: He goes, Oh, that must have been a Thursday. He goes, I don't remember why. But why a Thursday.

00:50:08.640 --> 00:50:16.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And he goes, Well, you know, on Wednesday nights I used to have my poker game with my friends came over and I was just so proud of you. I took the coins out to show

00:50:16.920 --> 00:50:33.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: My friends about all your coins and probably left it there and you know good cleaned it up the next day and your mom be and put it under the bed. He's like, oh, oh. So this story that he'd been living with for me most of his life about men not being

00:50:34.950 --> 00:50:38.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, cannot be encumbered with money was a complete fallacy.

00:50:40.050 --> 00:50:55.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and so now the facts of what happened were absolutely true. But the interpretation was completely made up. So my thing is if it's all made up any way. Why don't we make up stories that serve us and empower us instead of disempower us

00:50:56.460 --> 00:51:09.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, you know, it's those stories of, like, Oh, I'm not good enough and anything. Oh, I'm always bad. Oh, I always make mistakes. Oh, I'm this i'm not whatever whatever that story is change it.

00:51:10.230 --> 00:51:19.530 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What do you change it to, I don't know. It depends what feels good to you what empowers you. What makes you feel like you can do anything.

00:51:19.920 --> 00:51:37.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, find a way to take whatever maybe it's a story around how strong you are because you survived it. Maybe it was a story around Portland lesson you had to learn me, you know, make it a story that's just something that that totally inspires you or me. How many

00:51:37.860 --> 00:51:40.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The children's stories have been written.

00:51:40.260 --> 00:51:53.490 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: With a child like takes reality and turns it into some fantasy where they're finding dragons or the rescuing the princess or whatever it is, to attempt to reinterpret that whole story that they're living with

00:51:54.930 --> 00:52:06.210 Georgeann Dau: Yes, the perception. The perception becomes a distortion in many ways. And we, you know, the pre talking element, you know, zero to five.

00:52:07.800 --> 00:52:18.960 Georgeann Dau: Is when so much goes on is taken in for by the child and what goes on beyond behind and under the consciousness.

00:52:20.040 --> 00:52:34.080 Georgeann Dau: Is when this feelings and there's no awareness of the dialogue and that's so much of what I think, you know, because we know each other a little bit now um what I try to help people.

00:52:34.680 --> 00:52:39.840 Georgeann Dau: To do is to access that so that they can absolutely change.

00:52:40.350 --> 00:52:46.050 Georgeann Dau: Absolutely, absolutely. Change the dialogue in their head. Absolutely. This is so great.

00:52:47.040 --> 00:52:52.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it's completely possible. And there are a lot of different ways of doing it and and

00:52:52.890 --> 00:53:09.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Psychoanalysis psychotherapy is one way their body centered therapies like my wife does CMDR and somatic experiencing to very body centered the demonic work I do is another way of doing it, and even using all these different things together like like using different

00:53:09.000 --> 00:53:17.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Things different times. I mean, I've gone to a therapist. I've done the M. Dr. In addition to doing the other things that I'm doing. They don't have to be exclusive

00:53:17.100 --> 00:53:18.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, you don't have to do

00:53:18.720 --> 00:53:20.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Just one thing

00:53:20.190 --> 00:53:21.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right when we

00:53:23.280 --> 00:53:23.670 Georgeann Dau: Work.

00:53:24.690 --> 00:53:25.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Um,

00:53:25.650 --> 00:53:33.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's something I'm actually not extremely public about, but it's a it's a tradition that. No, no, no, no, it's okay. I brought it up.

00:53:33.690 --> 00:53:48.630 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It's a tradition that was brought to the states by this Peruvian lineage holder 45 years ago who came here and try to introduce people to some indigenous culture and the indigenous ways of healing.

00:53:49.350 --> 00:53:59.940 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But at the time it was, you know, the 6070s people were into into that kind of thing. So he found a way of looking at different demonic

00:54:00.570 --> 00:54:10.770 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Or indigenous rituals from around the world and modernizing them in a way to make them much more accessible for people here. And so we do things in a very

00:54:11.970 --> 00:54:17.430 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It. We do things in a ritual, but not in a traditional ritualistic manner.

00:54:17.850 --> 00:54:20.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So we do ceremonies, people come together me now we're

00:54:21.000 --> 00:54:29.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Obviously not to do things more virtually but it's it's a way of sort of accessing much deeper things inside

00:54:29.970 --> 00:54:30.480 Georgeann Dau: Mm hmm.

00:54:30.600 --> 00:54:34.620 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and it's it's a lot of in a way energy work.

00:54:34.650 --> 00:54:35.850 Georgeann Dau: Until, for lack of a better

00:54:35.850 --> 00:54:36.330 Term

00:54:37.380 --> 00:54:43.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it and it really is changed my life changed my wife's life she's she does it with me.

00:54:43.770 --> 00:55:00.270 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and I've also, you know, been training to be a facilitator for three and a half years. And so I've also worked with other people. And I've just seen like profound shifts that could happen in an evening that going to normal talk therapy could take 30 years to get

00:55:01.260 --> 00:55:07.620 Georgeann Dau: Very interesting, Sam. Very nice. I know a little bit about it. I was interested in what you're doing with it that's

00:55:08.250 --> 00:55:19.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, it's kind of in a way you had Dominic on your show talking about like the men's group and yeah coming together. It's not dissimilar to that because that's also in a very ritualistic

00:55:19.140 --> 00:55:20.310 Georgeann Dau: Manner. Yes.

00:55:20.430 --> 00:55:26.760 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and there's a certain power in these things that we've lost in modern times in a way

00:55:26.880 --> 00:55:35.820 Georgeann Dau: Yes. Mm hmm. Yeah. So we have about a minute and a half left. I want to end with a prayer is can we get your book on Amazon.
