The Voice In Your Head: Untethered Soul Book Club Pt. 1
Our Untethered Soul book club has finally arrived! So many of you have told me you're reading this book and it is already changing your life. I'm so happy we finally get to discuss it.
I read the Untethered Soul several months ago and right around the time I finished it, my dear friend, Matt, sent me a picture of my book in Grand Central Station, NYC. I was completely delighted to see Lessons from Madame Chic sitting right next to the Untethered Soul on the table.
There are so many topics to discuss in this book, we could talk about it all year. But what I plan to do with this book club is post four videos that discuss the four topics in the book that spoke to me the most.
I want this to be an interactive book club, so please write about your thoughts in the comment section of either the blog or YouTube channel, tweet me, facebook me, instagram me or shoot your own response video or blog. I would love to hear from you.
As I started to film this first video, I realized that this book is harder to talk about than I thought. The irony of it all was that the "voice in my head" was telling me I sound completely crazy talking about this stuff! But I have decided to put myself out there and speak about it because this has really helped me and I would be thrilled if it helped even only one person (although I have a feeling it will help a great deal more than one).
This week's video is on the voice in your head.
Here are some of my favorite quotes on the subject:
*Please note, I read this on my kindle, so I have location numbers in lieu of page numbers.
Location 229 True personal growth is about transcending the part of you that is not okay and needs protection.
Location 224 Reality is too real for most of us, so we temper it with the mind.
Location 184 Eventually you will see that the real cause of problems is not life itself. It’s the commotion the mind makes about life that really causes problems.
Location 257 You have to break the habit of thinking that the solution to your problems is to rearrange things outside. The only permanent solution to your problems is to go inside and let go of the part of you that seems to have so many problems with reality.
Location 294 You’ll be shocked by what you see. It just jumps from one subject to the next. The incessant chatter seems so neurotic that you won’t believe that it’s always been that way. But it is.
Location 881 You are living on a planet spinning around the middle of outer space, and you’re either worrying about your blemishes, the scratch on your new car, or the fact that you burped in public. It’s not healthy.
For my expanded thoughts on these quotes, check out this week's video. If you are unable to see the video above, click here, look in the sidebar of this blog, or visit my channel: www.youtube.com/TheDailyConnoisseur
If you feel intimidated by all of this, but you really do want to make a change in the way you think, I find that there is only one thing you need to do:
Acknowledge the voice in your head.
When you do this, you become aware of it. And awareness of the voice in the head is the first step toward awakening consciousness. Suddenly all of those unsettling of troublesome thoughts you have lose their power and over time will simply stop showing up.
I would love to know what you think about the voice in your head. Use the hashtag #dailyconnoisseur on your social media sites so we can all stay connected while discussing these life-changing topics, or simply leave me a comment below.
See you next week for one of my favorite concepts in the book: Burn & Release.
