Healing the mind is really about integration and in reality, any time we need to go through a healing process it's because there are parts of ourselves that we have divorced ourselves from. There are childhood wounds, there is trauma, there are unresolved emotions that we try to divorce ourselves from and try and bypass which creates a lot of stress in the body and the psyche. The healing process is really bringing those parts home; bringing the wounded child home and resolving this trauma or that relationship.” – Greg Schmaus

Listen To Episode 414 As Greg Schmaus Uncovers:

[1:30] How Humanity Has Grown Because of CV19

[12:30] The Peace Paradox

  • Why we cannot rely on other people 100% to help us heal, we have to do the work ourselves.
  • How we can quiet the mind and find the stillness within and why it can be complex day to day.
  • What the mind does to protect us when we have experienced trauma, rejection, and abandonment.
  • How we actually end up wounding ourselves when the mind tries to protect us from emotional pain.
  • 366 Mark Wolynn
  • What you need to know to help you fully prepare for your journey of healing your mind.
  • Why the health of the mind is so dependent on the health of the body.
  • The power of sitting in the eye of the storm and deeply surrendering to your emotions and what is going on around you.
  • Exploring this dance of polarity we are experiencing at high levels in the world today and how that impacts our psyche and stress levels.

[24:30] 3 Reasons Why We Self Sabotage

  • How Greg has built his program, Healing The Mind, for a 3 week process starting with the foundation of healthy lifestyle practices.
  • Why starting with the physical foundation of health focusing on sleep, nutrition, and movement is so important before doing the deeper emotional work.
  • The addiction to complexity some people face as they try to skip over the simple yet important health fundamentals to get to the hard stuff because “that's where the answer has to be.”
  • Breaking down the 3 reasons why we self sabotage: fear, limiting beliefs, and unresolved emotional wounds.
  • Why so many people have a fear of healing and they actually get their needs met by not healing such as receiving love and support for the first time because of a health crisis.
  • How we become addicted to a crisis or playing the victim.
  • Why some deeper health issues need to be resolved like your relationship with food before you begin to heal with a healthy diet.

[31:30] How Pain Guides Our Healing

  • Unpacking the war between the head and the heart plus their relationship towards pain.
  • Why healing can only happen when the head and the heart are fully aligned and you can commit to your wellness journey.
  • How vocal expression plays a big role in aligning the head and the heart.
  • Common causes for the head and the heart to become out of alignment.
  • Why finding a big enough dream and purpose for yourself will help you find your inner compass.
  • How the Pain Teacher works as a feedback mechanism and utilizes your inner compass as an opportunity to awaken your consciousness and help you grow.
  • Why playing the victim is essentially denying divine creation.
  • The fact that there is a light and a shadow side to each archetype including the victim.
  • Matt Kahn
  • Why our personal healing is also helping the collective heal on a grander scale as we break generational and society patterns.
  • How God is exploring it all through our individual experiences: relationships, emotions, trauma, potential and so on.

[43:30] Mental Health Opportunities

  • Why so many people, 85-90% of Americans in Greg's opinion, are facing moderate mental health issues.
  • How we can switch from focusing on mental health issues to mental health opportunities.
  • Why we'll never resolve our stress or anxiety if we spend all of our time trying to get rid of it and pushing it away.
  • Josh's severe pornography addiction that he worked on for 25 years and why fighting it didn't help but doing the inner work to love his addiction and fear is what helped him.
  • How to know if you truly have an addiction to something whether that is porn, alcohol, social media etc.
  • Greg's past addiction to exercise to feel valued and protect himself even though he felt more and more depleted.
  • Why many of us have so many unhealthy addictions and attachments without realizing it.
  • The 1 question Greg asks people to help them uncover their addiction(s).

[50:30] Honoring Our Internal Four Seasons

  • The fact that humans are wired to follow a seasonal rhythmic pattern both nutritionally and also emotionally.
  • Why the opposite of addiction is connection – either connection to self or connection to others.
  • Dr. Gabor Maté
  • Exploring what the seasonal rhythms are and why we ignore them.
  • How Greg's program integrates all of the seasons of nature in the final third week of his program.
  • Why we get off track with the seasons because the human mind has created this construct of linear time: past, present, and future which is an allusion.
  • Nature's cyclical time construct and why it is not linear at all.
  • Why the four seasons exist inside of us and even in a 24 hour cycle.
  • How humans have become addicted to the internal summer season of go-go-go, create, and grow to the point that we've ignored the spring and fall seasons.
  • What addictions we turn to when we try to keep in one season instead of naturally building a balance within.
  • Why we become so addicted to the summer season because we need the external world to validate and approve of us.

[1:02:00] How To Start Your Healing Journey

Power Quotes From The Show

Heart Chakra Healing

“The moment that people have had enough, they realize that they need to realign themselves or they feel like they're going to split in half. The healing process will then focus on stacking the head and the heart on top of each other through the expression of using your voice. What's between the head and the heart is the throat so how you express yourself and your needs and your values as well as how you set healthy boundaries and live fully in alignment with all of that is one of the most important pieces for healing. People are sick because they've given themselves away so much; they've fragmented, they've divorced, they've wounded themselves out of the fear.” – Greg Schmaus

Moving Past The Crisis Mindset

“What is your dream, what is your purpose, what is it that you really want to create for yourself? When you have a dream, you have a purpose. You have some sort of objective and an inner compass. When you know what direction you want to go in and what you want to create for yourself, you no longer have interest in creating what you were before which was your crisis.” – Greg Schmaus

Pain: The Catalyst For Growth

“The pain teacher utilizes crises as an opportunity to awaken your consciousness and to grow yourself. Pain is a feedback mechanism. Pain in the body is mirroring back to you your choices, behaviors, and belief systems that are no longer serving you.”  – Greg Schmaus
