Knowing Your Self-Worth // Cleaning the Subconscious Mind

After a warm intro to the Ram Dass Fellowship from Jackie, SIMRIT explores how basing self-worth on external factors and superficial roles will lower confidence and increase suffering. From here, she gives background into how the adversity of being an orphan helped open her to spiritual inquiry from a young age. Then, she illuminates how cleaning the subconscious mind helps us harness our power, self-worth, happiness, and ease.

“We all have situations in life that challenge our self-worth and challenge us to really dig deep into ourselves and realize who we really are. We have an opportunity in these situations to frame our perspective and use those opportunities to grow, to be kinder, and to be more flexible, compassionate and understanding.” – SIMRIT

Aura Charge Breathwork // Practice & The Infinite Self (26:00)

After sharing how we can navigate the polarity and uncertainty of the world with love, compassion and flexibility; SIMRIT invites us into a guided meditation, Aura Charge, breathwork practice and chant aimed at clearing the subconscious mind and enlivening our happiness. Next, Jackie opens the floor to audience Q&A diving into topics like moving through guilt and shame by using practice and fun to tap into our infinite nature.

“When we touch that deep well of inner confidence, and when we feel a deep sense of confidence, when we trust that sense of confidence, when we actually feel it on a regular basis; things like jealousy, anxiety, and worry—we can experience those things, but they don’t have a stronghold over us and they don’t dictate how we move in life or how we act towards ourselves and each other.” – SIMRIT

Ram Dass shifts contexts from small self to witness, on Ep. 206 of Here & Now
Addiction & Conscious Choice // Isolation, Intuition, & Neuroses (1:08:00)

Continuing with the Q&A, Jackie and SIMRIT discuss breaking addictions by finding the root they are coming from and staying consciously aware during the choice. (Here is a link to a version of the Breaking Addictions Meditation which SIMRIT discusses). From here, SIMRIT answers questions on overcoming isolation by reaching out, trusting your intuition, making friends with your neuroses,

“The only way to trust your intuition is to start listening to it, and falling flat, and sometimes not falling flat, and sometimes falling flat, over and over, until we know what that voice feels like.” – SIMRIT
