Sam reads a section from his book Everyday Awakening entitled We Can Truly Help Others When We Come From A Place of Joy. Sam talks about serving others and how it should come from a place of overflow rather than scarcity. This means we should not help others as a way to distract ourselves from doing inner work. Sam was inspired to write this when he observed that healers were using service as a distraction from doing their inner work. You can find a copy of Everyday Awakening at EverydayAwakeningBook.com.
Sam welcomes his guest Sadhu Dah, a healer, teacher, and High Priest. Sadhu talks about his upbringing and how he got into healing. He tells a story of a time he met a monk who embraced him without judgment. The monk welcomed him with open arms and made Sadhu feel like an equal. Sadhu shares how he went from being a curious bypasser to a student. He tells Sam about the challenges he faced during his journey. Through healing work, Sadhu had to shift his perception of himself and find self-love.
Sadhu discuss his meaning of magic and the practices he learned that was really transformative for him. He lists his influences and the groups that inspired him. Sadhu says magic aligns you with a certain vibration. He tells Sam about the different materials used in magic. Sam asks if Sadhu has ever witness a magical experience that went beyond a normal reality. Sadhu tells Sam about his experience and explained how the power can be used for protection. Sadhu shares how he went from the Terravan tradition to practicing Wica.
Sam and Sadhu discuss how these spiritual practices appeal to a younger generation. Sadhu talks about the people that are drawn to him and how they are usually victims of truama.

00:00:36.720 --> 00:00:38.490 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Good afternoon, my conscious Co.
00:00:38.490 --> 00:00:44.850 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Creators welcome to another edition of the conscious consultant our awakening humanity.
00:00:45.180 --> 00:01:00.450 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I am very, very pleased that you're all here with me today we've got fascinating guests in store for you today, but, of course, first we have a little section from my book, everyday awakening.
00:01:01.620 --> 00:01:06.720 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And let's get to that, right now, so the section today is entitled.
00:01:07.740 --> 00:01:20.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We can truly help others when we come from a place of joy, many of us are called to be in service to others to help others heal to support them in their growth.
00:01:20.490 --> 00:01:32.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But there's something to be careful of when we are for this quite easy to use, helping others to distract us from doing our own work to heal ourselves.
00:01:32.640 --> 00:01:56.940 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To look at our own internal processes and to take time to care and nurture ourselves, it is quite appealing to focus on others, after all, Look how much worse off, they are compared to us, we know what they need, we see things so clearly for them, we want to help, and we do.
00:01:57.960 --> 00:02:24.780 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yet it is easy to forget about ourselves in the process we put our own needs to the side we put everyone else first and ourselves last, and that is a recipe for a crash, for we cannot continue to only help others without taking care of our own needs our own growth our own healing.
00:02:26.790 --> 00:02:32.850 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: In the end, all healing is self healing old growth is self growth.
00:02:33.960 --> 00:02:56.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To be in service is a beautiful thing, as long as we don't forget to fill up our own cup first and ensure that we are giving from a place of overflow rather than from a place of scarcity, a place of true inner peace and not a place of avoidance.
00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:06.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It is seductively easy to keep our attention on others and lose our own opportunity to heal and grow.
00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:17.670 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yet when we focus on our own path first helping others becomes easier, we have a new perspective and can see things more clearly.
00:03:18.810 --> 00:03:26.130 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We can help, as long as we are truly helping from a place of joy not distraction.
00:03:27.900 --> 00:03:33.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Can you joyfully help others have you filled up your own cup first.
00:03:35.190 --> 00:03:40.740 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So I wrote this section of my book, while ago and I wrote it.
00:03:42.390 --> 00:03:48.000 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: If I recall properly was out of a sense of observation of seeing.
00:03:49.350 --> 00:04:00.660 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What i'm because I know a lot of healers I know a lot of practitioners and I was seeing with more than a couple that.
00:04:01.920 --> 00:04:13.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: They were so focused on helping everybody else that they weren't doing their own work, and not only weren't they doing their own work, they were like.
00:04:15.330 --> 00:04:23.370 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know kind of letting themselves go they started having health problems they started having challenges with.
00:04:24.540 --> 00:04:28.050 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know, with with their personal life with other things.
00:04:29.760 --> 00:04:45.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And it really it became sort of I was concerned, of what was going on and and I talked to one of my teachers about it, and he brought up like how.
00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:50.970 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How easy it is to use helping others.
00:04:52.620 --> 00:04:56.880 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How using helping others can help us to distract.
00:04:59.070 --> 00:04:59.790 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: From.
00:05:01.440 --> 00:05:02.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: from doing our own work.
00:05:03.690 --> 00:05:05.340 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And then, like a.
00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:14.460 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And then, of course I mentioned it many times before, I had a teacher who and.
00:05:16.920 --> 00:05:29.760 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Who was a wonderful healer who helped others, he did a lot of great things, but he never he didn't do his own work, and what happened because of that was he ended up.
00:05:31.680 --> 00:05:34.380 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: how shall I put it delicately he ended up.
00:05:38.070 --> 00:05:46.650 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Allowing his own trauma to affect how he worked with others and and and that really was kind of.
00:05:48.030 --> 00:05:52.530 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: A real breaking point in my level of trust in him.
00:05:53.280 --> 00:06:05.550 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And it also, though, like helped me to see so clearly that we can never stop doing our own word that no matter how much healing we have done, there is always more layers of the onion to peel.
00:06:06.240 --> 00:06:21.180 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And that really if we're if we're going to give to others if we're going to dedicate our life to a life of service of helping others of being that person, where people come to.
00:06:22.380 --> 00:06:27.660 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: If we're not really taking care of ourselves if we're not really.
00:06:28.770 --> 00:06:37.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Making sure that we're in a good place then we're not really going to help other people in the way they really need it.
00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:43.830 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And here's how insidious and how challenging it can be.
00:06:46.680 --> 00:06:48.900 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: When we don't feel good about ourselves.
00:06:50.100 --> 00:07:00.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And we only get our self worth from helping other people, and someone comes to us and what they really need is a little bit of tough love.
00:07:00.420 --> 00:07:13.380 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What they really need is someone to kind of like gently and kindly and compassionately smack him upside the head and say what are you doing cut it out, you need to you know you know get yourself together.
00:07:16.020 --> 00:07:17.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But because.
00:07:18.720 --> 00:07:26.880 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We we haven't done our own work, because we're coming from a place of lack we kind of feel like Oh, you know I.
00:07:27.780 --> 00:07:32.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know I don't want to offend this person I don't want them to get mad at me or whatever.
00:07:32.850 --> 00:07:43.170 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So instead of giving them the two by four up the side of the head with to kind and gentle and Nice i'm like oh it's Okay, everything will be fine don't worry about it.
00:07:43.740 --> 00:07:52.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And we just give them a bunch of platitudes which isn't really what they need in the moment and isn't doesn't really help or serve them truly.
00:07:55.650 --> 00:07:57.030 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And this is where.
00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:10.920 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: When it's so important to fill up our own cup first, because when we feel so full when we have taken care of ourselves, and we really feel good.
00:08:12.990 --> 00:08:16.020 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Then we're not worried about what they think of us.
00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:23.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: we're not concerned that they're going to be mad or angry at us if we do the right thing.
00:08:25.140 --> 00:08:32.190 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So, then we can apply that tough love, then we can be be.
00:08:33.900 --> 00:08:36.750 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Not Stern, but we can be.
00:08:38.820 --> 00:08:39.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: firm with them.
00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:47.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We can be firm with our boundaries, we can be firm with what's right and what's not right for us.
00:08:48.030 --> 00:09:02.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And we can say to them, but I know you're having a tough time but you know that better than anyone that you're contributing to this and look at your part of this, and we can we can with more.
00:09:03.210 --> 00:09:16.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Confidence with more certainty, we can help them to really look at their piece of the overall relationship or challenge, or whatever it is that they're dealing with.
00:09:18.030 --> 00:09:26.970 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But to do that when we're coming from a place of lack when we're coming from a place of of not feeling like.
00:09:28.590 --> 00:09:30.750 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know we're good enough.
00:09:31.980 --> 00:09:46.110 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We can't be strong, we can't be firm, we can't hold ourselves in the way we need to hold ourselves to really be the person that that they need to help them to move along on their path.
00:09:48.660 --> 00:09:50.220 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And I know it can be challenging.
00:09:51.690 --> 00:09:52.500 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And I know.
00:09:53.610 --> 00:10:06.330 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It kind of goes against in some ways it's like Oh, I just want to help you know it's that it's that sense of like Oh, I just want to be there for people, I just want to help, but what I would say is.
00:10:08.730 --> 00:10:22.110 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: If you ever hear yourself saying that to yourself if you ever feel yourself, oh no I just need to help this person I would take a look back and ask yourself.
00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:26.160 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Is there anything i'm trying to avoid.
00:10:27.360 --> 00:10:33.900 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Am I using helping someone else as an excuse not to do my own work.
00:10:38.160 --> 00:11:02.250 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: When we can honestly answer that and say no i'm not using this to avoid i'm doing this because it's truly coming from a place of joy, a place of happiness, a place because helping others just raises my spirit so much that there's nothing else i'd rather be doing.
00:11:03.480 --> 00:11:12.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know, then we're getting in alignment then we're coming from a place where we can truly help others, and not just a place of.
00:11:12.600 --> 00:11:24.720 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Oh, I just need to do this because it will make me feel better, oh no it's it's you know oh I can't look at this I can't be by myself, I can't do my own stuff I just need to to to help them.

00:20:17.760 --> 00:20:23.220 Sadhu Dah: emulate in front of like the statue and i'm like looking at these different things i'm like just kind of didn't know anything about them.
00:20:23.700 --> 00:20:32.610 Sadhu Dah: And this month comes up to me and he's just talking to me casually telling me some of the stories and the culture, history and everything and just very open ended.
00:20:32.970 --> 00:20:46.620 Sadhu Dah: And numbers learning some stuff and then these people who originally told the monks, that I was a sketchy you know kind of like predatory type guy come up and they want to, they want to, they want to talk to master xenophobe because they see him talking and engaging with.
00:20:46.650 --> 00:20:47.280 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: me.
00:20:47.400 --> 00:20:51.960 Sadhu Dah: And it's like, no, no, no, no, no, no, like you, you, you made a judgment about this man you.
00:20:51.960 --> 00:20:54.180 Sadhu Dah: said, you know, he was this and that and.
00:20:54.420 --> 00:21:06.120 Sadhu Dah: You know i've come to talk to him, and I find that you know he's perfectly fine young gentleman and and you know you made a judgment and so you can go over there, you can wait to talk to the other monks, but i'm giving my time to this man, right here.
00:21:06.540 --> 00:21:07.920 Sadhu Dah: And so it was just that.
00:21:08.460 --> 00:21:19.650 Sadhu Dah: For the first time in my life, not having to feel like there was some sort of scheme being run or like you know, I was going to have to pay something in some way.
00:21:19.980 --> 00:21:30.360 Sadhu Dah: And that there is no judgment, there were no barriers, and it was just me openly honestly connecting with another human being and receiving in a way i'd never received before.
00:21:30.810 --> 00:21:31.320 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And that's.
00:21:31.380 --> 00:21:33.090 Sadhu Dah: What started me down this path.
00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:48.180 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: wow What was it that got you to go to the temple in the first place, like, why did you even like you know go and take a look, because normally someone in that kind of situation if you're involved with gangs, or like other stuff it's like you wouldn't even go anywhere near a temple.
00:21:48.870 --> 00:21:51.300 Sadhu Dah: Well, the honest truth.
00:21:51.540 --> 00:22:01.800 Sadhu Dah: Is I heard from someone, you know that, like they had some cool sculptures and and things of that nature around around the place and.
00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:19.590 Sadhu Dah: I was bored and I had like nothing to do at the time, and I just kind of said hey you know, like let's go check it out there was not me trying to embark on a spiritual quest it was it was not some some trying to like discover myself no I was, I was genuinely just bored.
00:22:19.770 --> 00:22:20.310 Sadhu Dah: and
00:22:20.490 --> 00:22:22.500 Sadhu Dah: I wanted to go look at some cool art.
00:22:23.820 --> 00:22:31.380 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: that's cool that's cool you know and that's perfect because that's the way spirit works right it's when these little.
00:22:32.220 --> 00:22:39.210 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: points of where we add that that spirit kind of gets in there and just gives a little nudge in one place, and so we show up.
00:22:39.690 --> 00:22:51.720 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And then it can completely change the course of our life so you went there you had this experience with the month kind of like treat you, with respect, probably the first time you ever felt respected in your life.
00:22:52.500 --> 00:23:08.730 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And, and it got you curious so, then what happened from there, what what had to take us along just lead least the the broad sketch of like how did you go from being you know just curious about this stuff to like really diving in deep with both feet.
00:23:09.660 --> 00:23:15.900 Sadhu Dah: You know it in When I think back on it now, it feels like it all happened so fast.
00:23:17.190 --> 00:23:26.910 Sadhu Dah: You know I ended up opening a door that day and that door that I open led me to to meet you know.
00:23:28.590 --> 00:23:40.320 Sadhu Dah: You know my my CFO and focus on tron it led me to meet you know this llama and in this room for Shay it, you know it led me to meet master punk sock through master beneficial.
00:23:40.860 --> 00:23:46.980 Sadhu Dah: I went on so many different adventures and journeys in it and it all it is like it's like kind of like follow the white rabbit you know.
00:23:48.240 --> 00:23:49.890 Sadhu Dah: It all started with me just like.
00:23:50.700 --> 00:24:11.280 Sadhu Dah: blindly following this month there was there was something about master fanciful were at that point in my life, you know I just said, you know what I don't know what this man has, but he has something I want and i'm going to follow him, so I pledged myself to him, like.
00:24:11.340 --> 00:24:12.930 Sadhu Dah: pretty much from the get go.
00:24:13.350 --> 00:24:35.070 Sadhu Dah: And then we ended up reuniting like a year later, something like that and but that seeded already been planted and I ended up meeting you know some other teachers along that way, and then, when I reunited with them, it was that that's when I became his his apprentice and so.
00:24:35.790 --> 00:24:37.620 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: i'm though that.
00:24:38.700 --> 00:24:49.860 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: i'm wondering like that must have not been very easy because I imagine you, you were in a certain culture at the time, I mean your friends or your associates at the time, they must have given you a hard time about that or no.
00:24:50.580 --> 00:24:51.450 Sadhu Dah: I disappeared.
00:24:51.870 --> 00:24:59.910 Sadhu Dah: I dropped out of everyone's lives around me some people thought I was dead others thought I was locked up.
00:25:02.610 --> 00:25:03.630 Sadhu Dah: yeah I just.
00:25:03.930 --> 00:25:06.240 Sadhu Dah: that's interesting wholly devoted myself.
00:25:06.630 --> 00:25:16.320 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So far, and was there anything about like going in that direction, and following that path that was at the time, very challenging for you.
00:25:16.920 --> 00:25:23.220 Sadhu Dah: yeah i'm the biggest part and you know it's kind of like funny what you were talking about earlier from your.
00:25:23.220 --> 00:25:23.580 book.
00:25:25.200 --> 00:25:33.660 Sadhu Dah: The hardest thing I ever had to do was I had to face myself, I had to face my trauma I had to I had to face, you know.
00:25:34.950 --> 00:25:38.910 Sadhu Dah: Who, I wanted to be was different from.
00:25:39.930 --> 00:25:54.150 Sadhu Dah: Who, I felt like I was and I had to shift through healing work that feeling of inadequacy that feeling of of hatred against the world that feeling of not being enough.
00:25:55.680 --> 00:26:00.270 Sadhu Dah: To self love that was the That was the biggest journey.
00:26:01.050 --> 00:26:05.850 Sadhu Dah: All the miles i've traveled out of everything I did, that was the biggest journey, I had to make.
00:26:06.090 --> 00:26:10.800 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: No well yeah i'm sure that is hard, especially when you're coming from sort of.
00:26:11.130 --> 00:26:22.650 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: A kind of background where you probably felt neglected, you were you were you know used to people who always got an angle and was trying to get some from you, so you end up trying to get some from everyone else.
00:26:23.940 --> 00:26:35.760 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So yeah to kind of shift all that and shift that perspective into one that's kind more gentle to ourselves more loving must have been a bit of a challenge.
00:26:36.540 --> 00:26:48.390 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so um and so, you said you reconnect them a year later, and you sort of dedicated yourself with him how long was that sort of initial period that you worked with no flaw.
00:26:51.570 --> 00:26:53.730 Sadhu Dah: About like three years.
00:26:55.080 --> 00:27:02.880 Sadhu Dah: Like a good, solid three three to four years, actually, where I was, I was not working like a mainstream job and I.
00:27:03.270 --> 00:27:04.770 Sadhu Dah: Just followed a monk around.
00:27:06.150 --> 00:27:08.550 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: No, no, you didn't become a monk yourself, did you.
00:27:09.360 --> 00:27:22.560 Sadhu Dah: I briefly took on the vows just to get the experience but I mean it's that was not more so the path that I was you know dedicated to.
00:27:24.060 --> 00:27:43.560 Sadhu Dah: I I liked learning the teachings and the magic and so i'm like what they would call like a lay person with magic or more properly in a genre because a lot of these things that some of these monks study you know was like directly learned but me not being a monk.
00:27:45.330 --> 00:27:46.650 Sadhu Dah: I can't say that i'm a monk.
00:27:46.980 --> 00:27:51.780 Sadhu Dah: Right and I got I got the experience just for a little bit briefly just to know what it was all about.
00:27:52.290 --> 00:27:56.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: gotcha gotcha okay cool stone first take our next break.
00:27:57.180 --> 00:28:09.600 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So when we come back, I want to talk about that magic a little bit because you know we don't often think about you know monks and moved on their robes and then walking around with their begging bowl for they're getting their one meal a day.
00:28:10.260 --> 00:28:17.160 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We don't often think of that with magical though with with the certain traditions we hear a lot about different magic practices.
00:28:17.400 --> 00:28:30.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And then, how did you sort of make the jump from sort of the TV tradition to then becoming a wiccan and and really getting into some more I guess earth based practices i'll call it okay.
00:28:31.560 --> 00:28:32.250 Sadhu Dah: sounds good.

00:30:51.720 --> 00:30:59.880 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Welcome back to the conscious consultant our weekend in humanity so Saturday we were talking don't forget and don't forget.
00:31:00.810 --> 00:31:19.920 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We were talking about how you know you sort of dedicated yourself, you followed around this terrified and monk, and then you started to talk about magic So what do you mean by magic, and what what sort of practices or what sort of things did you learn that were really magical to you.
00:31:21.120 --> 00:31:40.830 Sadhu Dah: a tie, which are so tie, which is so unique in the way it was kind of culturally blended it took an influence from Malaysia and even Burmese not worship and.
00:31:41.250 --> 00:31:54.780 Sadhu Dah: You know pali canon from Cambodia and just all these influences of the country surrounding it back when it was still siam pre 14th century, you had this.
00:31:55.290 --> 00:32:02.580 Sadhu Dah: Old animalistic tradition very akin to when we talk about shamanism in native American you know.
00:32:03.210 --> 00:32:10.980 Sadhu Dah: spirituality these days or even you know and Canadian you know the shamanism of the natives and.
00:32:11.550 --> 00:32:22.590 Sadhu Dah: So these these practices were deeply rooted in the people in the culture and generations going back, but then when Buddhism took shape and took over.
00:32:22.980 --> 00:32:30.750 Sadhu Dah: And kind of essentially converted, you know what we call Thailand now you have this beautiful integration.
00:32:31.380 --> 00:32:42.240 Sadhu Dah: Where you would you would see these these monks, they would want to ultimately free people liberate them from their own suffering right through these.
00:32:42.570 --> 00:32:54.060 Sadhu Dah: teachings of the dharma and and be able to help one on their own spiritual path of enlightenment and kind of breaking that wheel of reincarnation.
00:32:54.660 --> 00:33:09.060 Sadhu Dah: However, not everyone's going to get there right away in a lifetime in several thousand lifetimes and the whole root of what we have to deal with before then is suffering itself.
00:33:09.840 --> 00:33:21.330 Sadhu Dah: So if we can give just a little bit of peace, just a little bit of liberation, in the short term, to make that journey, a little less painful a little less hard.
00:33:22.200 --> 00:33:31.320 Sadhu Dah: Through you know, like protection through like a long port pod you know amulet for like safety when you're when you're traveling and things of that nature.
00:33:31.740 --> 00:33:38.790 Sadhu Dah: Or you know, like that, like the prod prod Peta which, which is kind of like what will bring blessings in your life in general.
00:33:39.540 --> 00:33:52.680 Sadhu Dah: What the ultimate goal is with this type of magic is is kind of kind of aligning you within a certain vibration, so the magic itself that's poured into these amulets comes from.
00:33:53.430 --> 00:34:01.770 Sadhu Dah: Using several hundred different types of like plants, and you know holy powders that are composed of numerous different materials.
00:34:02.040 --> 00:34:12.240 Sadhu Dah: And you know their their their blessing or consecrated with specific you know kata these chance is one tron and you know these these very intricate processes are performed.
00:34:12.630 --> 00:34:28.620 Sadhu Dah: To make ultimately an amulet that will have a specific function and then it's believed and it's you know very commonly you know practice in Thailand, where people were collecting wearing trade and you know so and and have these different amulets.
00:34:29.580 --> 00:34:39.720 Sadhu Dah: To make their lives better I mean there's even old stories of the you know the type ghosts ghosts soldiers when Japan tried to invade and they you know would shoot these.
00:34:40.530 --> 00:34:52.500 Sadhu Dah: These Thai soldiers and this and the soldiers would fall down, and then they get back up, and it was like they were bulletproof in a sense, because they had to recruit which were you know special.
00:34:53.160 --> 00:35:00.000 Sadhu Dah: You know amulets that were made by these monks and and so you know, this is just where do we even begin.
00:35:01.590 --> 00:35:12.690 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So the the other than the stories have you witnessed or have you seen anything that that in your perception was beyond normal reality.
00:35:13.740 --> 00:35:20.520 Sadhu Dah: Yes, actually, and that is I have many stories to tell in that regard, but.
00:35:20.730 --> 00:35:32.940 Sadhu Dah: Just one of one of the most potent is witnessing somebody getting a genuine suck your tattoo so like this, this shirt i'm wearing actually is a good example of suck young.
00:35:33.390 --> 00:35:33.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: mm hmm.
00:35:35.670 --> 00:35:38.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Very intricate patterns very good detail.
00:35:38.910 --> 00:35:42.000 Sadhu Dah: So they're all spells um and.
00:35:43.170 --> 00:35:49.470 Sadhu Dah: When when they do the you know the Bamboo and they're tapping in and they're chanting the kata and then they they blow the.
00:35:49.890 --> 00:36:00.390 Sadhu Dah: The the power, as they call it they're called the magic the power so when they blow the power into it they'll test the sock young, and so the all the sock y'all have different rules.
00:36:00.420 --> 00:36:09.930 Sadhu Dah: Depending on the one you get some of them if you if you if you agree to get the certain Saki I will guess what you're vegetarian, for the rest of your life now you know, or you know, some of them have really weird.
00:36:11.160 --> 00:36:30.600 Sadhu Dah: rules like you can't walk under a doorway for the first 48 hours, which is like, how do I manage that you know so minus all that the weird part, though, was seeing this very sharp like almost like a like a cookery blade like like a curve blade.
00:36:30.870 --> 00:36:35.970 Sadhu Dah: And then seeing them slice paper you know slice of watermelon and you know, like this thing is like really sharp.
00:36:36.390 --> 00:36:43.260 Sadhu Dah: And then they a whole off and then whack the back of someone's neck right after they just up a sucky on and not a mark.
00:36:43.500 --> 00:36:57.150 Sadhu Dah: You see a little bit of redness just from where it collided on the skin, but not a single cut and they only do that to test to test the power to show you the the power of the suck young.
00:36:57.930 --> 00:37:08.940 Sadhu Dah: Is protection qualities, however, if you use it to show off it's not going to work, so it only act, the power only activates in a time of need.
00:37:09.210 --> 00:37:21.420 Sadhu Dah: So someone like where to where to shoot you or or pull pull a knife on you, you know, like somewhere like the power of the suck young would work same with like like lie making guns jam.
00:37:22.350 --> 00:37:24.390 Sadhu Dah: You know it's it's protection.
00:37:24.750 --> 00:37:25.920 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: about something with it.
00:37:25.920 --> 00:37:28.560 Sadhu Dah: yourself, I actually had a.
00:37:29.730 --> 00:37:30.750 Sadhu Dah: A LP.
00:37:31.830 --> 00:37:44.160 Sadhu Dah: Lumpur turn tiger amulet so invulnerability amulet that I still carry with me and I had you know, been told this was like you know, really, really powerful protection.
00:37:44.790 --> 00:37:57.030 Sadhu Dah: from dangers and harm and I was visiting my step dad and he had a he had a handgun that he thought he had a silencer for, but it was actually for a rifle.
00:37:57.390 --> 00:38:08.370 Sadhu Dah: And so, he put it on the handgun and I was testing it out and standing right next to him and and I fired it and the gun exploded in my hand.
00:38:08.730 --> 00:38:29.430 Sadhu Dah: Oh, and shrapnel shot everywhere, and my step dad was sitting standing right next to me and piece of shrapnel hit his leg, and there was not a mark on me and around in the grass we're finding pieces everywhere, and you know, we could say it's anecdotal sure, but.
00:38:29.790 --> 00:38:32.400 Sadhu Dah: Just by my own experience, I found it to be.
00:38:32.640 --> 00:38:47.370 Sadhu Dah: Quite profound that you know this tractor was everywhere and it even hit someone right next to me but and it exploded in my hand and yet there is there was nothing like not a scratch, not a mark I wasn't hard at all.
00:38:48.540 --> 00:39:00.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: wow wow yeah that's I mean when when the gun explodes in your own hand you would expect that your hand, if nothing else would have gotten a whole bunch of shot, no.
00:39:00.600 --> 00:39:02.610 Sadhu Dah: I was in a bit of shock, I was like whoa.
00:39:04.710 --> 00:39:05.820 Sadhu Dah: That just happen.
00:39:07.350 --> 00:39:17.430 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: i'm so curious, how did you go from from being so steeped in the the caravan and tradition and all of these things that you learned in Thailand into wicca.
00:39:18.840 --> 00:39:30.570 Sadhu Dah: So there was when I when I had kind of originally met you know master beneficial and in Texas, and I told you that you know that door had been you know kind of opened.
00:39:31.920 --> 00:39:39.210 Sadhu Dah: You know I looked up like a metaphysical store around me and there was one called a cautious treasures, and it was run by this lady named Charlene.
00:39:40.200 --> 00:39:54.960 Sadhu Dah: Who is just an absolute the amazing and dear soul and I just have so much profound respect for her, she was the wiccan coven mother and she ran this shop out of her garage.
00:39:55.020 --> 00:39:55.800 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so I didn't like.
00:39:55.860 --> 00:40:06.270 Sadhu Dah: I kind of like go by they're like little bit each day, and so, and then I started taking some classes with her and then before you realize it like I was kind of like learning.
00:40:06.720 --> 00:40:18.510 Sadhu Dah: To things side by side, and so it was really interesting to me because I was getting this like this very Eastern based you know.
00:40:19.320 --> 00:40:30.420 Sadhu Dah: set of teachings and practices and then I was getting this more Westernized version of it kind of distilled down and, and this is what really helped me over the years.
00:40:31.020 --> 00:40:50.850 Sadhu Dah: was having these different traditions that would study and was kind of apply myself in I was able to make distinctions between them and draw similarities as well and kind of start to break down, you know things like magic and spirituality in a more tactical matter.
00:40:51.000 --> 00:40:53.820 Sadhu Dah: Especially you know the way my mind works is it's like.
00:40:54.060 --> 00:40:56.160 Sadhu Dah: i'm like the kid that wants to take apart the toaster and.
00:40:57.630 --> 00:40:59.010 Sadhu Dah: So it was really fascinating.
00:40:59.700 --> 00:41:02.580 Sadhu Dah: to study multiple different paths, at the same time and.
00:41:02.880 --> 00:41:08.130 Sadhu Dah: kind of draw those comparisons between them, and it will say, like the Thai witchcraft and wicca.
00:41:09.240 --> 00:41:14.010 Sadhu Dah: They have some very strong similarities, but when we think of the origins of magical spirituality.
00:41:14.310 --> 00:41:18.060 Sadhu Dah: I mean, is it really any surprise that different flavors of the same recipe.
00:41:18.330 --> 00:41:25.050 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right exactly exactly I imagine that must have been some very curious things like i've heard things.
00:41:27.480 --> 00:41:38.700 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: About like different cultures, different indigenous cultures that we know from different parts of the earth, but then you look and they have a symbol for the exact same God and it looks exactly the same like in Mexico and Egypt.
00:41:39.030 --> 00:41:51.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I forget which God it is but there's one God that you look at the hieroglyphs for it, it looks exactly the same in both places, so that it does appear that in ancient times, things are much more interconnected than we realize they weren't today.
00:41:52.740 --> 00:41:53.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: awesome.
00:41:53.130 --> 00:42:03.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: yeah so before we go to break I see patty Loyalists and patty has a quick question for you, she wants to know your opinion of crystal skulls like the famous ones Max Max and Einstein.
00:42:03.750 --> 00:42:06.930 Sadhu Dah: hmm you know I would say that.
00:42:08.070 --> 00:42:08.760 Sadhu Dah: it's.
00:42:10.080 --> 00:42:15.000 Sadhu Dah: Obviously there's more to it than we could possibly know.
00:42:15.750 --> 00:42:27.480 Sadhu Dah: But what my own personal opinion and that's all it is, is my own personal opinion is it it's it's some sort of artifact from another civilization.
00:42:28.920 --> 00:42:37.860 Sadhu Dah: Now, whether that be extraterrestrial or whether that be a more advanced you know version of humanity that was before us, I don't really know.
00:42:37.950 --> 00:42:40.740 Sadhu Dah: But I do think it has some sort of.
00:42:41.910 --> 00:42:43.650 Sadhu Dah: Technology aspect to it.
00:42:43.710 --> 00:42:58.470 Sadhu Dah: Like maybe it's kind of like in a sense, like luminary and crystals were there there's kind of like a download that can be received from it similar how how the monks will download you know the power of lineages within you know, a disciple or student.
00:42:58.830 --> 00:43:03.810 Sadhu Dah: I think it's something along those lines, but again that's only my opinion I couldn't tell you for sure.
00:43:04.170 --> 00:43:12.300 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: gotcha gotcha that's fine that's all we're asking for beautiful yeah i've heard it said, and again this is just what I heard from someone else that the shape.
00:43:12.630 --> 00:43:24.510 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Of the skull is like a container for consciousness and so by shaping the crystal in the shape of a skull it creates a container that allows the consciousness to sort of be housed there.
00:43:25.020 --> 00:43:35.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So one possibility, who knows all right it's time for us to take our last break of the show when we come back i'd like to talk a little bit about how all the things you've learned and.
00:43:36.240 --> 00:43:43.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And how do you work with people today and, like How does this appeal to your obviously a few years younger than me like How does it appeal to.
00:43:44.370 --> 00:43:57.390 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: A younger audience and do you find that it's you know, taking sort of this different approach to spirituality helps to bring in perhaps a different generation to to some of these ancient traditions okay.

00:46:15.780 --> 00:46:21.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity we've been speaking this hour with sadhu da.
00:46:23.460 --> 00:46:41.670 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: teacher healer i'm so sad and I am curious you know you come from sort of a different generation, and I do a little bit younger and i'm in to find like these kinds of topics these things you talk about do they appeal to perhaps a different generation of people.
00:46:43.350 --> 00:46:52.590 Sadhu Dah: yeah, this is one of the things that I find to be so fascinating about being what I consider to be like in the middle.
00:46:53.610 --> 00:46:58.860 Sadhu Dah: So i'm in my early 30s and people, older than me.
00:47:00.780 --> 00:47:17.730 Sadhu Dah: In my own experience kind of feel more settled in in their paths or kind of have like that groove like settled in and the people who are younger than me it feels like they're more the river is wider.
00:47:18.150 --> 00:47:20.250 Sadhu Dah: they're they're more they're more open.
00:47:20.580 --> 00:47:22.650 Sadhu Dah: But, and you know.
00:47:23.730 --> 00:47:24.120 Sadhu Dah: it's.
00:47:25.170 --> 00:47:30.840 Sadhu Dah: Not an insult when I say this, but the people younger than me the generations coming up.
00:47:31.980 --> 00:47:36.330 Sadhu Dah: While they are more open and while they are more.
00:47:37.680 --> 00:47:45.480 Sadhu Dah: You know, sensitive in some regards it's also a thing i've noticed where.
00:47:46.710 --> 00:47:49.740 Sadhu Dah: it's more like sensitivity in the sense of.
00:47:51.930 --> 00:47:53.460 Sadhu Dah: Like how do I put this.
00:47:54.900 --> 00:47:57.450 Sadhu Dah: Like like almost too soft sometimes.
00:47:57.510 --> 00:47:58.050 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: mm hmm.
00:47:58.140 --> 00:48:09.360 Sadhu Dah: And life itself is hardship and pain and you know, there are going to be things that offend us and not everybody is going to be.
00:48:10.290 --> 00:48:24.630 Sadhu Dah: So encouraging or helpful and so there is this this kind of hardness this leathery quality that some older generations have that the younger generations don't and what we all need is we need that kind of medium.
00:48:25.200 --> 00:48:27.660 Sadhu Dah: You can't be too hard you can't be too rigid.
00:48:27.900 --> 00:48:36.300 Sadhu Dah: But you also can't be too soft you can't be too pliable so it's like, how do we, how do we find this this healthy medium between these these generations.
00:48:38.910 --> 00:48:40.290 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so, do you find.
00:48:41.760 --> 00:48:53.460 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: People are attracted to you because of the the different practices and sort of the different path that you've taken because you don't necessarily see a lot of people talking about caravan and magic out there.
00:48:54.330 --> 00:48:58.500 Sadhu Dah: No, no, you don't at least, at least not here not here in America.
00:49:02.760 --> 00:49:07.710 Sadhu Dah: i'm a lot of people tend to be drawn to me.
00:49:09.150 --> 00:49:21.540 Sadhu Dah: That have trauma it's kind of weird i'm like this, like tractor beam that just sucks up like you know the horrors of you know, our internal self and.
00:49:22.560 --> 00:49:29.190 Sadhu Dah: I often will get people that come to me just broken in many ways, but they're not broken their.
00:49:29.400 --> 00:49:44.040 Sadhu Dah: Their neurology and everything is working fine it's just screaming out hey it's time to heal it's time to grow and they're like you don't understand what i've been through and i'm like it doesn't matter because it's time to move forward and let that go, you know.
00:49:46.080 --> 00:49:55.020 Sadhu Dah: yeah I just people tend to gravitate towards me that i'm kind of feel like they're just enough's enough or they want to give up.
00:49:56.640 --> 00:50:03.150 Sadhu Dah: I can't say that i've had a student or people in general that come to me that are like my life's great and everything's fine.
00:50:03.150 --> 00:50:04.830 Sadhu Dah: hi how are you sad to die.
00:50:05.790 --> 00:50:18.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right right right yeah because if everything's great, then you don't really have a reason to look for something else right you're just happy, where you are you end up being complacent but it's only when there's.
00:50:18.840 --> 00:50:26.370 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Some trials and tribulations some pain some anguish that that that causes us to look elsewhere for something different.
00:50:27.450 --> 00:50:38.670 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And, and from the people that you work with these days, do you see any general trends do you see do you have any like sort, I would say general messages for anyone listening today of like.
00:50:39.690 --> 00:50:45.420 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know, things to be mindful of or or things to be more open minded about.
00:50:46.710 --> 00:50:56.250 Sadhu Dah: um the biggest thing that I see and I guess it's going to apply for the whole of humanity is it we are just ingrained.
00:50:57.510 --> 00:51:12.300 Sadhu Dah: With this whole sense of individuality right, you know be you, you know live your expression, and while that is something that is fundamentally true is it almost breeds this ideal of separatism.
00:51:12.780 --> 00:51:16.950 Sadhu Dah: yeah and what I noticed most is that.
00:51:18.030 --> 00:51:20.370 Sadhu Dah: US being humans.
00:51:21.420 --> 00:51:29.310 Sadhu Dah: You know, we are, we are creatures of you know, seeking society and and.
00:51:29.550 --> 00:51:30.780 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Social animals.
00:51:30.840 --> 00:51:32.790 Sadhu Dah: Exactly and.
00:51:33.810 --> 00:51:39.720 Sadhu Dah: One of the coolest things that you can do to a human being is you could separate them from the herd and isolate them.
00:51:40.110 --> 00:51:45.960 Sadhu Dah: And what I see a lot of is people isolating themselves inside their own mind.
00:51:46.530 --> 00:51:50.220 Sadhu Dah: And I cannot think of a suffering greater than that.
00:51:50.490 --> 00:52:01.350 Sadhu Dah: I mean sure we could talk about physical torture and all these things, but like if we're just getting down to the root of it, what greater pain is there than being isolated inside of yourself.
00:52:03.630 --> 00:52:03.870 Sadhu Dah: That.
00:52:04.200 --> 00:52:05.790 Sadhu Dah: He soul pain.
00:52:06.060 --> 00:52:08.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: yeah absolutely and so what's the cure for that.
00:52:09.780 --> 00:52:22.650 Sadhu Dah: The cure for that is learning how to give your self permission to love yourself and to accept love from others.
00:52:23.070 --> 00:52:26.340 Sadhu Dah: And while that sounds so simple.
00:52:27.450 --> 00:52:39.570 Sadhu Dah: Our trauma loves to get in the way and make it more complicated than it needs to be, and you know it doesn't have to be but, but the thing is is someone has to.
00:52:40.140 --> 00:52:50.790 Sadhu Dah: kind of show you how to open a door if you don't know how to open a door, you could stare at it all day long trying to figure out the intricacies of the lock in the handle and the framing and everything.
00:52:51.150 --> 00:52:58.320 Sadhu Dah: And then, and then and then somebody just comes along and they're like you just turn the knob like this and you push and you're just mind blown because you're like.
00:52:58.650 --> 00:53:00.690 Sadhu Dah: How could I have never considered, such a thing.
00:53:01.890 --> 00:53:02.280 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right.
00:53:02.340 --> 00:53:04.290 Sadhu Dah: Right over complicate everything.
00:53:04.860 --> 00:53:09.420 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right, we make things more complicated and just because something is simple doesn't mean it's easy.
00:53:09.870 --> 00:53:25.650 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It still takes effort it still takes things like, as you mentioned before, facing your trauma like, how can we accept self love if we have this deep inner feeling of of lack of self worth of this.
00:53:27.090 --> 00:53:37.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: sense of self hatred right, we have to face that trauma, which can be extremely challenging um but it doesn't necessarily have to be all that complicated you.
00:53:38.580 --> 00:53:41.310 Sadhu Dah: know and in and and one of the one of the.
00:53:42.450 --> 00:53:54.660 Sadhu Dah: Things that I feel is is not expressed enough, I see this, I see this a lot from you know these more new age type metaphysical communities where it's all you know.
00:53:55.020 --> 00:54:10.980 Sadhu Dah: healing is light and love and all this like super positivity and i'm not detracting from that we need more of that kind of vibration in this world, but what I will say is healing is brutal it's.
00:54:11.070 --> 00:54:15.750 Sadhu Dah: ugly it's messy it's painful it's not pretty in.
00:54:17.010 --> 00:54:20.160 Sadhu Dah: And you know the raw truth if we're being really blunt.
00:54:20.760 --> 00:54:23.040 Sadhu Dah: Nobody wants to work on their trauma.
00:54:23.310 --> 00:54:24.390 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right right.
00:54:25.290 --> 00:54:27.210 Sadhu Dah: it's scary and frightening.
00:54:27.300 --> 00:54:28.920 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Until they have no other choice.
00:54:30.450 --> 00:54:30.870 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right.
00:54:31.140 --> 00:54:33.120 Sadhu Dah: The alternative is far worse.
00:54:33.210 --> 00:54:40.440 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yes, absolutely absolutely, but I think you just said is one of the best books in the show is healing isn't that pretty.
00:54:43.350 --> 00:54:49.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Absolutely and and and you know it's also like going back to that disconnection in that sense of.
00:54:50.160 --> 00:55:03.750 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Being separate that's want why one of the things i'd love to do is bring people together and ceremony and group so that we heal together and that I find when people work on their healing together that the the.
00:55:04.380 --> 00:55:16.980 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The healing is actually exponential rates because you're doing it with other people and almost all of our trauma is in conjunction with other people, so when the healing is it helps to release so much more.
00:55:17.730 --> 00:55:24.300 Sadhu Dah: And when you're connecting with others you're connecting with different expressions of yourself.
00:55:24.630 --> 00:55:25.470 um.
00:55:26.760 --> 00:55:34.020 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yes, yes, and so you can see sort of the reflection back to you have that aspect of yourself in another person.
