I began every day with 20-minutes of meditation.
And when I did, I’d feel physically lighter and more solid (great).
But unless I followed-up with another meditation during my break…
That feeling would fade-away until the fear, stress, and anxiety would resurface again (not so great).
Therefore, the only way to pull myself out was to keep up with a “routine.”
As a result, I found myself doing meditations every 2-3 hours…
… Was hyper-focused on diet and hydration.
… Along with journaling and breathing exercises to top it off.
It felt like I had a second full-time job!
That’s when I realized this was just a temporary solution.
Like putting a bandaid over a wound that clearly requires stitches.
Because much like meditation…
Every other solution I tried, didn’t solve my problem for good.
Instead, the meditations, self-help, affirmations, therapy sessions…
They only taught me how to manage my issues – rather than get rid of them for good.
But it wasn’t just me.
I noticed the same thing at the Methadone Clinic.
It took my patients (who were dependent on meeting with me each week) YEARS to make any meaningful progress from traditional methods and even eastern influence.
Something was missing.
If anyone was going to experience and deliver true, lasting change… I had to find it.
So after finishing my masters, I took a 3 year journey of consulting at clinics all across the country.
Throughout this journey, I worked with cognitive, cognitive-behavioral, somatic, and narrative forms of therapy.
Including psychodynamic, jungian and gestalt as well.
I was even exposed to plant medicine, Ketamine , and other forms of psychedelic therapy…
But NONE of it was the missing piece.
That was until I was hired as a consultant by one of the top-5 best addiction treatment clinics in the U.S. located in Mississippi.
That was the moment everything changed.
Because I was exposed to the concept of “Core Issues” by the work of someone named Pia Melody.
It wasn’t perfect, but it was a unique and powerful way to view a person’s subconscious.
And with a little tinkering of my own…
It’s now become the foundation for the 3 emotional states I’ve created, and use with my own clients today.
That’s why I want you to pay attention here.
Because if you can understand these 3 states, and how you relate to each one – it can grant you the power to know exactly what’s happening in your subconscious at any moment.
