THE BIG TAKEAWAY: Before you decide to share something, check your "traffic light" (e.g. šŸ”“ Red Light / šŸŸ” Yellow Light / šŸŸ¢ Green Light). šŸŸ¢ Green Light: share away! šŸŸ” Yellow Light: take a breath.

I'd say, I think of it as compounding. Interestingly enough, it gets faster rather than a linear one. It's not linear process where it's like, "Oh, it's going to take all these years."

It felt like really slow moving boulders up a hill initially when I had to get through the harder parts of the work.

I really love this quote that I'm going to butcher right now by Rumi, which is like, "Our task is not to find love, but to eliminate all our barriers to love." And I really think about that law where it's like, some of us have retained as a child, the ability to feel joy and explore that. But some of us have that just covered in rubble that we have to clear first. @

And so a lot of my early inner work had more to do with first learning emotional literacy. Because if you can't feel in one area, then you can't feel in all other areas. And then deeper work with a therapist on just understanding, where does a lot of my negative patterns come from?

What is attributable to my parents? What is attributable to my own decisions, and what can I do in that process? And then also being very lucky to explore a combination of like coaching, psychedelics, and other kinds of workshops that have continued to help me create and have language for the stuff, so that I can talk about it, realize I'm not alone, find other people working on this, figure out what works together, try things, and then realize like, "Oh, wow, like I'm no longer where I was like 10 years ago."

It's a very sudden transformation that is not sudden at all the realization that you're there in some way is sudden, so it's very un-intuitive.
