How to Unstuck Yourself!

How to Change for real!

Today I'd like to talk about what it takes to truly change. Most people don't want to talk about it, because most people don't truly want to change. But most of us want, myself included. I'm not enlightened or anything. What we all want is we want to take our same feelings, our same emotions, our same desires, our same ideas into what we consider to be this new realm, where we're where we have more of the things that we want, where we become more of the person that we want to become But in reality, the only way to truly change yourself or anyone else is to go through a death process. Now death, you know, it's the it's the big issue with humans. We're all aware of our own death and we have 10,000 different ways that we deal with it with many different religions, and many different ideas and philosophies and politics and communities. But most of us who seek any type of change, are unwilling to go through the death cycle to get there. The painful truth is, is that if you want To truly change for good in a way that's going to potentially yield, what you want the change and being or the change in circumstance that you want. If you want to become a billionaire, or if you want to become a political leader, or if you want an amazing relationship, or if you want an outstanding sex life, if you want optimum health, whatever it is, you have to die. And that's the thing that you can actually begin to get better at being willing to face death is the beginning of true transformation. Now when I say death, I don't mean physical dying, because you can have religious belief in which you You see that death is not the end, and believe that when you die, you're going to change and go to another plane, or you know go to heaven or being reincarnated or whatever your particular flavor is. That's not death. True death comes from facing annihilation. So that means facing zero. So if you practice facing annihilation, facing the point at which, sort of in the sand in the fantasy genre they would, there would be sort of monsters that would take your soul and extinguish it. So if you're willing to face or if you practice being willing to face extinction, annihilation, total dissolution, then you'll be better able to make the true changes in your life. That will accomplish what you are seeking. So really that's the core of this talk is that in order to have a true change, and it really doesn't matter how small the changes, the more you practice being okay with Total Annihilation, and that may mean letting go of your family, letting go of that which you hold most dear. The stories throughout the ages are filled with stories of which you have to let go that which you hold most precious in order to save the world or save your humanity or save the community or save life. So Practice facing total annihilation. You are facing an annihilation of your identity. So when I was about 15 years ago? Yeah, no, that was 10 years ago, about 10 years ago. I know that was 15 years ago. I apologize. 15 years ago, I was faced with the opportunity to go live with a wild tribe in the mountainous Amazon region of Peru, which was something that in my youth, I always, always but for many years I had strived to because I had identified with that, that wild life that was completely immersed in nature in which nature was our whole world. that opportunity. And I was getting ready to make that I was making the decision of whether I was going to do that or not. And something happens inside of me welled up. Because I knew in my intuition and in my deep insight that if I went into that forest, my goal was to stay there for at least six months, at least, a seasonal change, if not a year, six months to a year, a full solar cycle, or at least half a solar cycle. If I did that, I knew deep down inside that, me as I knew myself with my likes, and my preferences and my desires and all the things that I wanted to do, that person was going to die in that forest and somebody else was goi

How to Deal with Dangerous Narcissists

In this Episode I will teach you how to identify Dangerous Narcissists and deal with them. Please send me questions and I will address them in future content. Here is the transcription of the audio. It has errors ai generated. Mike Stokes Wildlife education. today's podcast is how to deal with narcissists. So first, there's a lot of ideas about what a narcissist is. And so I'm going to make it moderately clinical and more appropriate for a layman's understanding. a narcissist is a very tactical term in psychology. And I think for most of us, that's kind of irrelevant. If you're a psychologist and you're dealing with very specific types of personality disorders, and you're trying to help them through those particular disorders, then it's very useful, but in our own life, and how to deal with the narcissists in our life. It's important it's not important. What's more important is to recognize whether someone is dangerous to you or not. So the easiest way that you can define a narcissist is someone who lacks the ability to empathize, truly empathize and act on that empathy in a way that sort of puts themselves in your shoes. That's kind of the bottom line. Now I'm going to use narcissist in sort of the term in the broad sense that most people use narcissist and that's, that's really anybody who does that. Again, like I said, nice narcissists are very defined subset. What I'm mainly going to talk about today is how to deal with what are called in the technical term is a cluster B personality. And a cluster B personality is someone who again lacks that capacity to empathize with your feelings. Me seem like they do, but in reality, they really don't. So, you know, there's people who are antisocial that would fall into that category. There's people who are volatile personalities, they would fall into that category. There's what we what the, what's called in the psychological literature, the borderline personality that would fall into that personality into that, that group and then the narcissist so I don't want to get into all the distinctions of all those because I really don't think they're helpful. But what's really important is how do you deal with one of these people that truly lacks the capacity for empathy. So, just a little bit about my experience in this realm. I have always been a very special wear my heart on my sleeve kind of person, open my heart to everybody. And for many years in the beginning of my personal development, growth world, what I did was just constantly open, open, open, open. And that had a huge amount of benefit, but one of the side effects is is that when you crack yourself that far open, you allow predatory narcissists into your life. So I allowed a coach into my life he was a predatory narcissist, and he you know, took advantage of my labor in the way you can tell you're with a narcissist is that you hurt yourself or they hurt you. And somehow it's justified or somehow it's glossed over somehow it's a thought of not thought of as not important. You know, when I was with this coach, I believe out my lower back I ruptured l four l five in the desk and got a slip desk by helping him in his work. Now, I can't blame that on him. And that's not the point. The point is to not blame narcissists for your life issues. The point is to know notice when you're likely to get in destructive situations when you're around certain people. And then fast forward. I have a family member who is married to a narcissist and he was a very wealthy man, a multi millionaire, and now he's basically living hand to mouth. First thing you need to do when you're dealing with a narcissist is you've got to identify them. That's the hardest part in the beginning, when I was waking up to the world of narcissists, you know, it's easy when you see you know, a political rival or a foreign country and you're just demonizing them, but when you've left Somebody's into your heart and you're really trying to have a relationship with the
