[NEW EPISODE] Energy Management

This week, we shift seasons, Sam will discuss all about managing our energy, what that means, and how to do it.

Ask your questions, contribute to the conversation, and be a part of the show!

Show Notes

Segment 1:

This is the first episode of the month so today it is just Sam. He starts the show with a quote from his book, “Everyday Awakening,” about finding peace within yourself. Sam talks about how we often believe that our inner and outer worlds are separate but they do not need to be. By being the change you want to see in the world, you can reshape your environment. If these ideas resonated with you, visit everydayawakeningbook.com to buy a copy of Sam’s book.

Segment 2:

Sam talks about the impact that sleep can have. He notes that if you were to turn off your morning alarms, you’d likely sleep in much longer than usual. In some cultures it is normal to take naps in the middle of the day. It is in cultures that prioritize productivity rather than well being that sleeping in the middle of the day is frowned upon. Sam suggests that you shift your focus from productivity to doing things that serve you well. Not only should you sleep more, you should also be drinking more water.  Very rarely does he drink tap water, on his sink is a filter and he has a sediment filter as well. Sam also recommends a healthy diet and exercise.

Segment 3:

Sam answers a response in the Facebook Livestream. A listener has recently become a vegetarian and Sam discusses the benefits that this can have on an individual’s health as well as globally. It is said that if we consumed ten percent less meat we could save twenty-five percent of energy. Returning to the topic of energy, Sam talks about how hiking and engaging in movement can be a great way to utilize your energy. It can replace habits that don’t serve us. Some situations can provide us with energy and uplift us. In order to receive, there has to be a willingness to receive and the belief that we are worth it. Some listeners share how they manage the energy they receive. One manages her visual energy by being intentional about what she watches on television, having beautiful objects in her home, and having pleasant looking screensavers.

Segment 4:

Sam discusses the importance of being in our authority. This means setting boundaries and not allowing the things you do not want. You do not always need to explain why, sometimes the only answer needed is, “This doesn’t feel right.” So many people are trained not to say no to people because they wish to be nice but sometimes saying no is the nice thing to do. Sam reads the comment of a viewer that says, “Sometimes ‘no’ is the greatest challenge.” Sam believes that setting your boundaries is a gift you give to other people because you are setting an example for them to do the same.

00:02:39.990 --> 00:02:50.130 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: been changing the format, a little bit lately and trying to get it there there's so many shows on the network i'm trying to squeeze things in but slowly but surely i'm beginning to.

00:02:50.970 --> 00:03:00.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Do it and we're going to actually do it keep trimming it down a little bit so it's a little less text heavy and a little more graphics.

00:03:01.440 --> 00:03:04.770 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Okay, so let's get started.

00:03:06.120 --> 00:03:14.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And for those of you haven't tuned in for a little while instead of doing our quotes of the day i'm doing a quote from my book i'm actually.

00:03:14.940 --> 00:03:27.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: decided to kind of take you on a journey through all of the essays that are in my book, and so we're up this is the fourth week i'm doing this, or this is sad number four.

00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:35.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And the title of it is when we find peace within nothing can shake our world all right let's get into it.

00:03:36.570 --> 00:03:44.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When we feel at peace with ourselves little can shake us when we find our Center we are balanced and calm.

00:03:45.360 --> 00:04:05.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: This state is not about what life brings to us, but about our ability to respond from a place of tranquility we often think that everything in our external world has to be calm, for us to be calm, we feel that, when life is hectic with so many moving parts we can't settle down.

00:04:07.380 --> 00:04:22.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That, if there is drama at work or in our relationships we can't possibly be serene yet what is on the outside is not nearly as important as how we feel on the inside.

00:04:22.710 --> 00:04:31.770 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If we have worked through most of our major trauma and our self doubts we change from the inside out.

00:04:32.610 --> 00:04:42.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When we come to accept ourselves for who we are, exactly as we are, how we feel on a daily basis, changes.

00:04:43.290 --> 00:04:50.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We no longer base our emotional state on what is happening around us, we can see things more clearly.

00:04:50.580 --> 00:05:06.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and not be rocked by our external circumstances, because once we know we are okay, we are good, we on the inside, then what happens on the outside, is a far less importance to us.

00:05:06.990 --> 00:05:19.350 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We can be the I at the Center of the storm, we can be a rock for others when they are losing their heads over a crisis, we can be a calming influence in an emergency.

00:05:20.370 --> 00:05:30.390 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Our stillness does not mean we don't care are peacefulness is merely an indication of our understanding of how life works.

00:05:31.350 --> 00:05:49.110 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: For when we come to peace within ourselves, we see peace in the world around us things no longer have to be perfect once we understand that we are perfect even with all our flaws.

00:05:50.400 --> 00:06:00.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What keeps you from finding peace within yourself, perhaps, once you explore it, you will find the peace you crave.

00:06:01.830 --> 00:06:13.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It this is, you know it's so funny when I was doing my quotes of the day I would always say how like you know these are just the quotes that come in on Thursday mornings, these are just the ones that I pick.

00:06:15.390 --> 00:06:24.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And they were always so perfect for the guests, they have or the topic that day and so now i'm just kind of going through the book and linear order.

00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:37.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it's kind of I thought that well you know it probably won't be quite as apropos to the topic that's going on but it's interesting how it still lines up with what we happen to be talking about him because today's topic.

00:06:38.730 --> 00:07:03.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: is about energy management, so this idea of finding the peace within is a very important aspect to it and i'll i'll get to that topic in a little bit, but this whole idea of finding peace within ourselves, the reason why, in my i'm going to go up my hallucination of the world.

00:07:04.470 --> 00:07:06.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: why it is so important.

00:07:08.490 --> 00:07:17.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is because we sometimes have this idea that we have an inner world and there's this outer world.

00:07:20.040 --> 00:07:22.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that we you know when one shifts the other shifts.

00:07:25.890 --> 00:07:29.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And i'd like to sort of think about it a little bit differently.

00:07:32.430 --> 00:07:40.830 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: My perception is actually that there is no difference between our inner world and our outer world.

00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:43.530 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That.

00:07:44.760 --> 00:07:47.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When our inner world.

00:07:48.750 --> 00:07:51.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: is more peaceful more serene.

00:07:53.220 --> 00:08:06.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Maybe in a state of surrender or maybe in a state of just joyously accepting and believing that everything happens for us as we talked about in a prior show.

00:08:09.360 --> 00:08:17.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That then energetically things start to shift around us, or at the very least, our perception changes about everything around us.

00:08:19.230 --> 00:08:20.430 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So now.

00:08:22.710 --> 00:08:24.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Things are more peaceful around us.

00:08:26.790 --> 00:08:33.300 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And even if they're not because we're responding from a more peaceful place.

00:08:35.760 --> 00:08:41.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We become the calming influence we become the peacemaker, naturally.

00:08:42.480 --> 00:08:47.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then merely by showing up and sharing our presence with those around us.

00:08:49.020 --> 00:09:01.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The chaos starts to calm down the the craziness the frenetic nature of what's going on starts in training to our energy.

00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:04.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And things begin to settle.

00:09:06.960 --> 00:09:12.870 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So experiencing peace experiencing peacefulness in life.

00:09:14.580 --> 00:09:18.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is that really about what's going on out there.

00:09:19.980 --> 00:09:29.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: what's going on out there is merely a reflection of the work we've done to become more at peace with ourselves and more at peace with.

00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:32.940 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: life itself.

00:09:35.940 --> 00:09:44.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, when we bring this additional peacefulness to ourselves, we bring it to our world.

00:09:46.740 --> 00:09:48.570 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And my dear friend Jennifer huff.

00:09:49.800 --> 00:09:54.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: talks about how we have something like 75 trillion cells in our body.

00:09:55.530 --> 00:10:06.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that the cells have little antennas kind of little hairs on the on the outside that send and receive photons light.

00:10:08.700 --> 00:10:12.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And light carries with it information energy.

00:10:13.860 --> 00:10:17.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And light travels around the earth seven times in the second.

00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:26.010 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, merely by us shifting our energy deciding to play a different game.

00:10:29.280 --> 00:10:51.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Choosing to to be as Nelson Mandela said to be the change we want to see in the world i'm sorry that Gandhi said to be the change we want to see in the world, when we are that change we emanate that energy we emanate that feeling.

00:10:53.520 --> 00:10:58.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so we really do cause the world to change around us.

00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:23.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Now, again we we change the world, not by controlling it, not by forcing it to be a certain way, but we change it by changing our presence and you never know who will pick up on that now, in the might not necessarily be the person right in front of you, it could be a person 1000 miles away.

00:11:24.480 --> 00:11:28.620 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And by them picking up on our peacefulness and picking up on how we're feeling.

00:11:29.730 --> 00:11:46.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Suddenly they're more calm and then they're become like a repeating tower and then they relay that energy and then someone else picks it up and then someone else and someone else and that analogy of dropping that pebble in the still lake in the ripples going out into the world.

00:11:48.300 --> 00:11:50.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Not necessarily quite as linear.

00:11:52.410 --> 00:12:03.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because Maybe those ripples go out and they go out beyond our field of our senses they go out beyond what we can see, and feel.

00:12:04.380 --> 00:12:15.300 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it touches somebody somewhere and they could be in the same town in the same city in the same state in the same country, or they could be halfway around the world.

00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:20.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so.

00:12:21.120 --> 00:12:24.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When we do our own personal work.

00:12:25.440 --> 00:12:33.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and this is something I really want people to understand is that it is only by doing our own personal work.

00:12:34.380 --> 00:12:52.770 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What does that mean that means digging deep inside into our past our history, our feelings and trans muting our stories, the energy around releasing whatever energy we've been holding around these old incidences that happened a million years ago.

00:12:54.120 --> 00:13:05.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and not allowing them to affect us in a way that doesn't support us anymore, but flipping it and changing it reinterpreting it.

00:13:06.720 --> 00:13:16.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Trends muting it into a story and energy and idea that empowers us and supports us and helps us to feel even better about ourselves.

00:13:18.360 --> 00:13:19.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: that by doing that.

00:13:22.200 --> 00:13:29.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We develop this peacefulness, not just in our minds, we tend to be very mindful, but the body.

00:13:30.690 --> 00:13:41.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It doesn't matter what you do in your mind if it's not affecting the body it's not doing any good if it's not in our hearts if it doesn't make it all the way to our souls to our spirits, you know i'm really big heart mind body and spirit.

00:13:43.290 --> 00:14:01.650 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's got to get into all four of those aspects of ourselves for our consciousness, to really shift and change and when our consciousness shifts and and and that change but evolves in that way, then, then we show up so powerfully.

00:14:03.360 --> 00:14:07.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we don't have to be loud about it, we don't have to be.

00:14:09.480 --> 00:14:25.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: expressive about it, we can be very quiet about it and we still affect those around us, we still bring our energy to whatever situation is going on and bring that energy.

00:14:26.940 --> 00:14:33.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It shifts everything in that becoming the change in the world.

00:14:35.250 --> 00:14:36.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It really does.

00:14:38.310 --> 00:14:48.390 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: bring into manifestation bring into our awareness our presence our physical reality, it brings us into it.

00:14:52.410 --> 00:14:58.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And by doing this, it really helps with managing our energy.

00:14:59.880 --> 00:15:07.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And this is what we're going to be talking about today, and so this is a wonderful section of the book to really kick off this topic.

00:15:07.680 --> 00:15:20.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And i'm going to start digging into that a little bit more about why is it so important to manage our energy, what does it mean to manage our energy and we've already started some of the ways about how to do it.

00:20:46.110 --> 00:20:59.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Do you you guess do you use other techniques, yes i'm going to get into other techniques for for energy management So why did I pick this particular topic this week, so I had a session with somebody.

00:21:00.840 --> 00:21:17.970 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: On Friday night doing the shamanic work that I do and and and again i'm not a shaman i'm a facilitator of facilitating and working with this gentlemen it's my first time working with them and and it's just you know, usually I do it in a group, but this time it was just me and him.

00:21:19.980 --> 00:21:29.010 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and this is something that my mentor has said over and over again over the three and a half, close to four years that i've trained been training with him.

00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:43.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is that a lot of facilitating people is all about energy management, because if you don't manage your own energy you're going to be exhausted afterwards and you're not going to be much good for like a couple of days it's not going to be sustainable.

00:21:44.760 --> 00:21:47.430 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I realized a long time ago.

00:21:48.600 --> 00:22:00.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That in a season is here today, great tonight and, and so I realized that this was true not just for facilitating people through deeper exploration and through.

00:22:02.160 --> 00:22:09.630 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know sort of their their development of their consciousness and their spirit but it's true for like everything in life.

00:22:10.680 --> 00:22:15.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That the better able, we are to manage our energy on a day to day basis.

00:22:17.370 --> 00:22:26.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The better we are able to show up for ourselves for others, we feel better we don't feel overwhelmed we don't feel exhausted.

00:22:27.450 --> 00:22:38.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then, when things come we're in a better state of mind to deal with them So the first thing to understand is the importance of energy management and in our daily lives.

00:22:40.350 --> 00:22:52.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it was beautiful what what what William was saying about using breathing and meditation and working out and yes it's you know I usually look at it, as there are four pillars to it.

00:22:53.280 --> 00:23:02.340 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The first thing is getting enough rest and in United States and i'm sure many countries around the world, we are chronically sleep deprived.

00:23:03.780 --> 00:23:06.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that, and you can tell, because.

00:23:07.980 --> 00:23:20.250 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If you're the kind of person that you live by your alarm clock if you don't set your alarm clock for like a month, do you still get up at the same time, would you sleep a little bit later than you normally would.

00:23:21.480 --> 00:23:30.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because if your own internal circadian rhythms in your own internal body clock if they're not waking you up at a certain time, you need more sleep.

00:23:31.560 --> 00:23:34.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And what I found and i've seen this for myself personally.

00:23:37.020 --> 00:23:43.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because I know it's true of myself as well, like if I just let myself sleep as much as my body wants to sleep.

00:23:46.050 --> 00:23:54.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That it takes me to usually about two weeks or somewhere in between seven to 10 days seven to 14 days somewhere in between there.

00:23:55.890 --> 00:24:09.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then suddenly I start waking up a little bit earlier and a little bit earlier because now my body has its proper rest and it's feeling better, and so I then, then I start getting the amount that I need and i'm not like recovery.

00:24:10.830 --> 00:24:16.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So getting proper rest now that's, this is not also just about sleep.

00:24:17.250 --> 00:24:29.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's about when you feel tired, in the middle of the day, taking a nap I mean there's so many cultures around the world we're having a siesta in the middle of the day is just part of the culture.

00:24:31.770 --> 00:24:36.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I find that it's only in societies where.

00:24:37.020 --> 00:24:48.270 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's all about productivity and we have to make more and be so productive that that we've we've taken that away, and now we have to work, work, work, work, work, all the way through the day.

00:24:51.390 --> 00:24:56.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And i've said this before and I really want to emphasize this.

00:24:57.870 --> 00:25:16.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That being super productive is not necessarily what's best for us, I mean it might be at certain times but there's this societal mindset that the more productive, we are the, the better we are, the more successful will be the happier will be in all this and it's not necessarily true.

00:25:18.420 --> 00:25:21.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I mean, yes, being more productive is great for society.

00:25:23.400 --> 00:25:35.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But that doesn't have mean it's good for us as individuals, it doesn't mean it's good for us in our individual circumstances, it might be for some people, but from a whole bunch of people, it might not be.

00:25:36.780 --> 00:25:41.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Now look i'm not saying that we should sit around on the couch all day long and do nothing.

00:25:43.500 --> 00:25:48.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But it's that mindset of I have to produce, I have to produce, I have to produce.

00:25:50.670 --> 00:26:07.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If we can remove ourselves from that and maybe more focus on, I want to not, I have to, but I want to show up better in my life, and I want to show up as the best me possible, what do I need to do.

00:26:09.540 --> 00:26:14.310 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So number one plenty of rest, very important.

00:26:16.470 --> 00:26:17.310 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Number to.

00:26:21.360 --> 00:26:22.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: drink lots of water.

00:26:24.900 --> 00:26:28.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and water is so so important.

00:26:29.490 --> 00:26:41.010 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it's interesting for for so long i've heard the statistics of like we're made up of about 70 to 75% water, just like the surface of the earth is 70 75% water.

00:26:41.940 --> 00:26:56.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But someone I saw a doctor or a healthcare professional recently post that actually were more like 80 to 85% water but because most of us are dehydrated because we don't drink enough water it only.

00:26:57.750 --> 00:27:04.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: comes your measures out to 70 to 75%, but we should actually be there should be more water in our bodies now.

00:27:06.570 --> 00:27:07.650 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Again i'm.

00:27:09.150 --> 00:27:15.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: pot calling the kettle black black I mean, these are practices that i'm working on I drink lots of tea.

00:27:16.320 --> 00:27:32.820 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I do drink water but I probably drink, you know more tea during the day, it helps keeps me going you all you guys see my big cup of tea every day it's not coffee I don't drink coffee and so you know T is basically border with some free flavoring from some herbs.

00:27:34.260 --> 00:27:46.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: However, I do know that, depending on the T, it can be a diuretic it means I go to the bathroom or IP out more I returned water back to the earth, so I have to be more mindful about drinking just plain water.

00:27:48.000 --> 00:27:58.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And also water is so so important to us, you want good water I very, very, very rarely will drink straight tap order.

00:27:59.520 --> 00:28:06.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The chlorine in it is not that good for us i've been using water filters on my tap for.

00:28:08.340 --> 00:28:15.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I mean like at least 30 years probably more and I live in New York City New York City has the reputation of the best water around.

00:28:15.900 --> 00:28:19.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, but the New York City water pipes are kind of old.

00:28:19.950 --> 00:28:35.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know the building amen it was built in the 1960s, so these pipes are over 50 years old or around 50 years old, the water mains that bring the water from upstate New York City they're hundred years old or over 100 years old.

00:28:36.270 --> 00:28:44.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it's picking up stuff all the time and the thing, the reason why I know it's actually a very good thing to have a water filter on my tab.

00:28:45.480 --> 00:28:54.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is because every six months, when I replace him and I have one of these like five stage water filters, so I have to change like three or four filters every six months or so.

00:28:55.320 --> 00:29:06.870 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: there's one filter that filters out the sediment and when I change that filter it is brown it is white when I put it in, but it is brown covered with all this gunk like you would not believe.

00:29:08.460 --> 00:29:19.530 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So the first and and and even though the one stage or two stage ones you change them and they're like black and there's all this gunk in them and i'm like I don't want that crap going in my party i'm sorry.

00:29:21.150 --> 00:29:24.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So alright so plenty of rest water.

00:29:25.620 --> 00:29:32.970 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Health healthy food absolutely healthy whole foods stuff that comes like out of the ground vegetables fruits.

00:29:34.650 --> 00:29:41.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know i'm not a mediator, but I do eat fish and seafood but if you're a meat eater it's Okay, but I usually recommend.

00:29:42.840 --> 00:29:52.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know something that's more mindfully grown more mindfully harvested I love buying things fresh from farms, when you can go to the farmers market pick up stuff.

00:29:54.120 --> 00:30:00.810 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: These are foundational these are pillars and then, when we come back because we got to take a break now i'll get into Williams other thing.

00:30:01.800 --> 00:30:13.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Which is also exercise moving your body, and then there are a whole bunch of other things we're going to talk about in terms of managing your energy, if you have any questions comments.

00:30:14.820 --> 00:30:21.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Please post on the Facebook live, and you can find it on facebook@facebook.com slash inspired thoughts with Sam.

00:30:22.440 --> 00:30:32.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So thank you all for tuning in today, I really do appreciate it look without you listening and it doesn't matter whether you're listening live or on the podcast and we're on all the podcasting platforms even Amazon now.

00:30:34.500 --> 00:30:46.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Thank you for tuning in, thank you for being with us and for those who don't know you are listening to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity and we will be right back after these messages.

00:33:36.150 --> 00:33:40.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity.

00:33:41.010 --> 00:33:45.240 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: we're talking today all about energy management.

00:33:46.500 --> 00:33:52.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and as I was finishing off the last segment, I was talking about the four pillars, which is get plenty of rest.

00:33:52.440 --> 00:34:06.390 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: drink lots of water eat healthy food move your body exercise, and I see William on the Facebook live says, I went vegetarian in September 2020 and I feel much better I drink lots of water and herbal tea wonderful William i'm so glad.

00:34:07.380 --> 00:34:21.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And being a vegetarian I find there are a lot of reasons why it makes sense and I don't think we necessarily need to be so fanatical about it, but if we just cut back.

00:34:22.230 --> 00:34:29.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: On the amount of animal protein that we take and look i'm not saying if you're a real carnivore you want to eat meat every day fine go ahead, but.

00:34:30.120 --> 00:34:47.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: There have been so many studies, about how eating a more plant based diet is so much healthier for us and and helps to prevent so many of the diseases that we see around today that are very much environmental and.

00:34:49.170 --> 00:34:53.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Very much lifestyle based, and not only that, but but.

00:34:55.560 --> 00:35:01.500 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, growing animals and killing and slaughtering animals and eating them actually takes a whole lot of energy.

00:35:02.070 --> 00:35:13.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I remember one time somebody was giving a presentation and they said, like if we would just cut down the amount of meat that's eaten in the world by 10%.

00:35:13.950 --> 00:35:19.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That we would save something like 25% of the energy that is used every year and to me.

00:35:20.100 --> 00:35:30.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, being more mindful of the amount of energy that we're using up, and the reason why that's important is because a lot of cold based power plants, a lot of.

00:35:30.840 --> 00:35:41.250 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: unsustainable unclean energy being used and that's affecting the environment and affecting the environment, not just in terms of climate change, but in terms of toxicity.

00:35:41.850 --> 00:35:53.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because many power plants, they give off toxic waste, and it goes somewhere, you know if it's if it's coming out of the power plan and smoke it's going into the air, if it's.

00:35:54.240 --> 00:36:03.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If it's a nuclear power plant, you know the the vision nuclear power that we use there's all kinds of radioactive waste and that waste is going somewhere.

00:36:04.110 --> 00:36:12.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then you know there's some accident like what happened in Fukushima, how many years ago and they're still finding radioactive waste in the ocean.

00:36:12.720 --> 00:36:22.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Who knows what the long term environmental effects of you know, when that tsunami hit, and there was the you know whole disaster and Fukushima awful.

00:36:23.670 --> 00:36:32.040 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: know so I don't care whether you believe in climate change or not it's about our toxicity in our environment so anyway i'm sorry getting off topic.

00:36:33.090 --> 00:36:35.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But it's kind of on topic, because it is about energy.

00:36:37.530 --> 00:36:50.130 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, managing our energy, those are the four pillars, but it's also more than just about pacing ourselves and movement, you know I didn't really talk too much about it but exercise and movement is so important.

00:36:50.550 --> 00:36:57.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And i'm not saying you have to go to a gym and lift weights and get on a treadmill find the exercise that works for you i'm.

00:36:58.050 --> 00:37:03.570 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Going with with a friend on a hike this Saturday that's like an a plus mile hike I even hate since.

00:37:04.140 --> 00:37:13.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Last summer, since last July I think and i'm really looking forward to it because I love getting out in nature, I love hiking because there's just something about.

00:37:13.860 --> 00:37:23.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know you're walking you're not running you're you're climbing and then you get to the top and they're these beautiful views and you get to enjoy nature.

00:37:23.430 --> 00:37:34.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: i'm not one of those hikers that's like running through the hike I want to enjoy the scenery because i'm in the city all day like i'm in my apartment most of the time now so i'm really looking forward to it, I hope I can keep up because i'm a little out of shape.

00:37:35.640 --> 00:37:48.210 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But that movement helps to release energy that we're holding on to and so energy management is not just about how much energy we're expanding but it's about what energy are we holding on to that.

00:37:49.980 --> 00:37:55.830 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Weighing us down that's causing us not to show up as our best selves.

00:37:56.700 --> 00:38:08.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: cuz sometimes we experience things and look where human beings we're emotional creatures and sometimes things happen that affects us and we it causes us to feel a certain way.

00:38:08.700 --> 00:38:18.810 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because we have not learned yet to be 100% non reactive, we are going to respond to our environment we're going to respond to what other people say and do.

00:38:19.110 --> 00:38:28.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: As much as it's none of our business and it's not about us and the more we learn that what other people think say or do has absolutely nothing to do with us it's all about them.

00:38:28.830 --> 00:38:50.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Although it can be about us it's about our behaviors but the more we hold on to that energy, the more it weighs us down the more it takes energy to to hold it so movement helps to release that energy movement also is a great replacement for habits that don't necessarily surface.

00:38:52.050 --> 00:39:00.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know there's a friend asked me recently it's like I want to cut down on drinking alcohol more, what can I do instead because I just you know it helps me to relax i'm like.

00:39:01.350 --> 00:39:09.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Well, instead of reaching for a drink why don't you move why don't you do some exercise do something like that to replace it when you have that urge.

00:39:10.200 --> 00:39:18.840 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because we can't just stop doing something we've got to replace it with something else it's just the way we're built, and so we love that idea and it's like I know exactly what I need to do.

00:39:21.180 --> 00:39:22.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So movement is so important.

00:39:23.940 --> 00:39:33.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Now, another aspect and a really important aspect that we don't often think about when it comes to energy management.

00:39:35.760 --> 00:39:38.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is this idea of giving and receiving.

00:39:40.950 --> 00:39:50.460 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because when we work with people or whatever kind of work we're doing we're actually giving our energy or focusing our attention to something.

00:39:53.220 --> 00:39:55.590 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When we learn.

00:39:56.790 --> 00:40:06.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: How to receive energy from the situation from life from other people it actually supports us and lifts us up.

00:40:06.990 --> 00:40:25.500 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And this is why I like going on a hike with people and not just by myself, because going with a group of people and you're interacting and talking with each other and joking and laughing it adds energy to it, and when we receive that energy, then we can actually do more.

00:40:26.790 --> 00:40:45.210 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Personally, I think this is why sporting events that are team event and that individual events are actually so much more popular because when we work together with other people there's this given take with other people not given take helps us to do more, helps us to show up even more.

00:40:48.120 --> 00:40:58.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So what does it mean to receive so to truly truly truly receive and I work on this, I still work on this i'm good at it, but I can be even better.

00:41:00.810 --> 00:41:01.530 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: First.

00:41:02.670 --> 00:41:04.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: There has to be the willingness to receive.

00:41:05.640 --> 00:41:17.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Second, we have to believe we have to feel that we're worth it, that we have worth and that it's Okay, for us to receive.

00:41:19.170 --> 00:41:21.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So many times there are these.

00:41:22.650 --> 00:41:26.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: insidious little programs in our consciousness.

00:41:27.300 --> 00:41:30.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That we're not good enough that we don't deserve.

00:41:31.410 --> 00:41:41.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And when those programs are running in the background of our consciousness, they actually prevent us from receiving, because if we don't feel worthy then Who are we to take.

00:41:42.300 --> 00:41:45.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Who are we to to bring in this energy.

00:41:47.160 --> 00:42:03.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Which is why doing the deep work is so important and why release sit finding these little programs in releasing that energy releasing that belief system releasing and transcending it into the knowingness that.

00:42:04.590 --> 00:42:15.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Everything is of worth everything is a value everything deserves to receive all of the fullness of life that he wants to give us.

00:42:18.510 --> 00:42:21.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I find it for myself that when i'm working with people.

00:42:23.370 --> 00:42:38.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and and it's interesting Chris sometimes working with people it doesn't have to be that active like with this gentleman I worked with it was more about just holding space and he had a lot to talk about he had a lot to get off his chest Seattle, want to release it verbally.

00:42:40.110 --> 00:42:49.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so I didn't even contribute that much verbally in a way, but I held the energetic space for him, and even that was a lot of giving.

00:42:51.270 --> 00:42:57.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I found myself more tired, the next day than I thought I would be over the next day or two.

00:42:59.640 --> 00:43:01.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so that to me was a lesson that.

00:43:02.880 --> 00:43:05.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is you know there's still some some some.

00:43:07.830 --> 00:43:11.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I want to say work but there's still something to explore for myself around receiving.

00:43:13.200 --> 00:43:26.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because when we're willing to receive and it's not just receiving the energy from another person, but the energy from receiving from life from nature from from the ocean from the forest from the trees from the plants.

00:43:27.780 --> 00:43:47.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When we're a little bit more mindful and a little bit more open to receiving but that lifts us up and supports us and allows us to actually go further and that actually it can support us and help us to have more energy than we ever imagined.

00:43:49.050 --> 00:43:53.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is he William on the Facebook live agrees with me thank you, William.

00:43:55.110 --> 00:44:07.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But, again, I want you to kind of take this in and use this for yourself and think about where in your own life, maybe, can you work on receiving more from other people.

00:44:08.100 --> 00:44:21.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And again it's not you know little things just one little thing when somebody wants to give you a present or do something for you or they offer to pay for the check or split the check or pay for the tip.

00:44:22.620 --> 00:44:31.590 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: receive it say thank you and really take it in and honor it and be mindful of allowing that in.

00:44:33.780 --> 00:44:39.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Sunday on the Facebook live says, I manage my visual energy by keeping pleasing things, in my view.

00:44:39.930 --> 00:44:47.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: screen savers objects on my desks the shows I watch etc trying to be more intentional by what I allow into my mind body and so.

00:44:47.910 --> 00:44:56.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Working on my receiving wonderful scenario wonderful yeah like actually someone gave me a little present recently which I really love it's this little picture of a tiger.

00:44:57.090 --> 00:45:11.820 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, why Why do I love it and why did they give it to me because, according to the Chinese zodiac i'm born in the year of the tiger, so I consider the tiger like one of my spirit animals, and you know when they see the tiger it kind of reminds me.

00:45:13.560 --> 00:45:16.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know of that that energy of.

00:45:17.970 --> 00:45:19.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That fierceness and that.

00:45:22.350 --> 00:45:25.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: majesty of it all right.

00:45:26.940 --> 00:45:41.280 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it's time for me to take the last break of the show it's been going really fast and so much more I wanted to cover i'm not going to get to everything today, but when we come back i've got even more ways about managing our energy and more ways.

00:45:42.480 --> 00:45:50.040 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: To really maybe some slight little tweaks that can make all the difference in the world, so please stay tuned.

00:45:50.250 --> 00:46:04.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: you're listening to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity, we do this, live every Thursday 12 noon to 1pm Eastern right here on talk radio dot nyc and all over Facebook live, and we will be right back after this.

00:48:23.970 --> 00:48:29.760 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity alright, this is our last segment.

00:48:30.150 --> 00:48:32.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we're going to try and tie things up now.

00:48:33.690 --> 00:48:36.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So we're talking all about energy management this show.

00:48:38.070 --> 00:48:40.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so we've talked about.

00:48:41.670 --> 00:48:55.590 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: The importance of rest water, food movement exercise receiving and another important aspect is up being in our authority What do I mean by that.

00:48:56.190 --> 00:49:13.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Being in our authority is honoring ourselves and what we feel is right for us or not right for us it means saying yes to what we really want to say yes to and saying no to what we don't want to say yes to.

00:49:15.540 --> 00:49:27.420 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so that part of that is having good boundaries, and this is sort of a practice being in our authority means that we do not allow into our experience what we do not want.

00:49:28.980 --> 00:49:50.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, if somebody is doing something or somebody is is wants us to do something for them, and we do not want it, we say no, and we don't have to justify it, we do not have to explain ourselves that is being in our authority, yes, is yes, no is no.

00:49:51.630 --> 00:50:00.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we do not have to explain, if we want to explain, we can but sometimes all we have to say is.

00:50:00.990 --> 00:50:18.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It just doesn't feel right for me, or it does feel right for me or, this is what feels right for me in this moment and that does not mean we cannot change our minds, we are human beings, we are creatures, we are adaptable and flexible and we change moment to moment.

00:50:19.860 --> 00:50:36.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And if other people have a hard time with us changing our minds, because last week we said, one thing, and this week we're saying another thing well that's about them it's not about us so being in our authority is really allowing other people to see.

00:50:37.140 --> 00:50:41.310 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That we are sovereign over our own choices.

00:50:42.480 --> 00:50:43.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that.

00:50:45.120 --> 00:50:58.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We are that what is right for us is right for us what is not right for us is not right for us and so many people in this world have a hard time saying no to people because we're worried about what they're going to think about us.

00:50:59.100 --> 00:51:02.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That we're just not used to it we're not trained to do it.

00:51:03.870 --> 00:51:09.240 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we're actually trained the opposite we're always trained to be so gracious and so nice to other people.

00:51:09.900 --> 00:51:22.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Will sometimes saying no is being nice to other people sometimes saying no in defining those clear boundaries is exactly what other people need and it's what we need, it helps us with our energy.

00:51:28.050 --> 00:51:36.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: just looking on the Facebook live patty says i'm always so pleased when one of my friends kids listen to you, and they they, like you, yes.

00:51:37.020 --> 00:51:52.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and Cynthia says know is the greatest challenge yeah no saying no to somebody can be a very big challenge, especially when we grow up in a family that's very tight knit, which is a wonderful thing, but boundaries tend to get very.

00:51:54.030 --> 00:52:07.590 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: porous boundaries tend to be pushed and we don't necessarily have a good sense of boundaries, so when we're brought up in that environment with a very close knit family, then it can be more difficult for us.

00:52:08.040 --> 00:52:21.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: To develop good boundaries, because we didn't experience it when we were younger, but what happens when we don't have good boundaries, we feel, like other people and situations are draining us they're pulling our energy away.

00:52:23.520 --> 00:52:27.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Well, look I hate to say it, but we're the only ones responsible for that.

00:52:28.860 --> 00:52:39.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: we're the ones responsible for saying no we're the ones responsible for where we put our energy and if we're not putting our energy towards something that lifts us up.

00:52:39.270 --> 00:52:54.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That that invigorates us that that increases our vitality, then we have no one to blame, but ourselves, and we don't really have to blame ourselves it's all an opportunity to learn to be better at something we just want to be better at.

00:52:56.730 --> 00:53:09.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: patty says this message is so great none stop me to say yes and it's 73 and finally breaking the habit very cute very Thank you so his yes yeah it's so.

00:53:10.530 --> 00:53:30.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's so true we are so taught to be obedient to give away our authority to other people, but how does that make us feel, what does that do to our energy when we give our authority away to other people it doesn't feel good it actually dampens our energy.

00:53:32.670 --> 00:53:41.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, being in our authority and really choosing to be mindful of the management of our energy.

00:53:42.120 --> 00:53:53.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It not only serves us and helps us to feel better it serves other people, because then we can be in the example now look we don't have to be harsh about it okay it's not like no get the hell out of my face.

00:53:53.820 --> 00:54:06.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: No, we can be kind and compassionate about it and understand that other people who are asking all these things from us and expecting us to just say yes, all the time, very never been taught.

00:54:07.200 --> 00:54:19.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: they've never been taught about good boundaries so by us having clear good boundaries, it helps us to hold our own energy it helps us to show other people what's good and what's not good.

00:54:20.370 --> 00:54:30.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, holding our boundaries it's actually a gift that we give other people we live as an example of how other people should be because think about it.

00:54:30.990 --> 00:54:42.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: When you're working with somebody else if you're used to always and you can call them anytime and they're always pick up their phone or if you email them or text them and they always get back to you right away you're always going to expect that right.

00:54:44.190 --> 00:54:50.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, if someone says look i'm not looking at my phone, except for between this hour in this hour.

00:54:50.820 --> 00:54:59.190 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Then they set a certain expectation, then we know and then we have certainty and it's like Okay, so I can text this person at night but they're not going to get back to me in the morning.

00:54:59.850 --> 00:55:05.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's something that I do a lot and I tell people all the time, look if you email me on Friday afternoon.

00:55:05.790 --> 00:55:11.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: there's a really good chance you're not going to hear back from me until Monday, because I don't do emails on weekends, I might look at it.

00:55:11.880 --> 00:55:26.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So if it's something important I can respond to it, but my boundary is, I am not sending I do emails all week long I spend a lot of time emailing people that's the way I communicate a lot but weekend forget it i'm not emailing people.

00:55:27.930 --> 00:55:39.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, having those clear boundaries helps us feel good because also then we don't have to spend a lot of energy figuring out Oh, should I respond to the person now or not.

00:55:39.540 --> 00:55:44.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: No figure out what is your boundary and i'm not saying there's one kind of boundary to have with everyone actually.

00:55:45.150 --> 00:55:49.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: There are different people in our lives, and we have different boundaries are different people, we have a different.

00:55:50.010 --> 00:55:59.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: boundary with our partner or spouse or loved one than we do with our friends than we do with our family that we do with our co workers, and we do with our bosses and that's okay.

00:56:00.690 --> 00:56:15.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: As long as we're clear about it, and we have that own expectation ourselves so it makes it very easy we don't have to spend a lot of time thinking about is this Okay, is it not Okay, should we do this or do that no.

00:56:17.970 --> 00:56:29.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So i'm i'm coming to the end of my time and I just really want to impress upon you that when we honor ourselves and honor ourselves in many different ways.

00:56:31.080 --> 00:56:53.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: By managing our energy we can enjoy life so much more we can live life so much fuller and we can be a good example for other people, so they can manage their energy and they can see how to live a more fuller more fulfilling a more invigorating life.

00:56:55.350 --> 00:57:10.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I truly believe life is here for us to enjoy to to have fun with to play with my friend Jennifer likes to say to be that cosmic three year old playing in the cosmic sandbox.
