  1. What authors are you referring to here? I'm kinda new to Jungian Psychology, although I've read Moore & Gillette.
  2. Stage Yellow source on why it might be wise to wait.
  3. In my experiences with friends whom I told about the model, for those in stages below Yellow the model didn't stick. It simply went in one ear and out the other. So, my hypothesis would be that being in stages below highish-Green the value of Spiral Dynamics can't really be comprehended. In this way, only individuals in Yellow will seriously accept & integrate the model into their thinking. Imo Blue doesn't have the structural capacity to run Spiral Dynamics-Software,
  4. For me, a nice way to integrate spiritual work with more personal development style work is to: 1. Get clear on your goals/life purpose/connect with your inner compass/intuition for guidance 2. Take action that moves you in the direction you've found in step 1. 3. Notice the negative emotions that arise on your path: they are signs pointing towards neurotic/inflated parts of the ego that get triggered by your attempts of changing. 4. When you have time/ the situation allows, dive into the emotions, find out what lies at their root, and release them. To do this effectively you might want to look into different frameworks for this: Focusing (Gene Gendlin), Completion Process (Teal Swan), The Sedona Method, Letting Go (David Hawkins),... Via this process, you slowly liberate consciousness/energy that was bound by the emotions/parts you've released while at the same time removing the self-sabotage mechanisms that prevent you from reaching your goals.
  5. It would be quite awesome to gain a behind-the-scenes perspective on how is being run, this would help the people trying to actualize their life purpose via the avenue of entrepreneurship enormously (by providing a case-study of sorts).
  6. In my opinion this is one of Leo's most underrated video's: In this video Leo introduces us to his personal knowledge management system. He closes by emphazising the importance of figuring the "how to build one for myself" part on our own. I agree that blindly copying someone else's system isn't an effective way of building one's Commonplace Book, but at the same time I wanted more information on the topic. So I did some searching and found someone truly remarkable. The guy's name is Tiago Forte and his speciality is "Building A Second Brain" (other phrase for Commonplace Book). Very yellow. He has an awesome blog, densly packed with goodness. Highly recommended for everyone trying to get the most out of their learning/ personal knowledge management! Great for building one's digital productivity infrastructure in general. Here is a great post to start & gain an overview of his teachings:
  8. @Nahm Jin Shin Jyutsu seems really interesting.. do you have any book/ resource recommendations?
  9. General confidence is strongy linked to living with integrity and owning everything about yourself. The more chinks in the armor you have (aka things you haven't accepted completely about yourself) the higher the likelihood of "being found out"/ being exposed. This triggers defense mechanisms which undermine confidence.
  10. When it comes to fatigue a few things work quite fast: 1. Take a power nap. When feeling sluggish and tired in the afternoon taking a short nap (around 30min) has an incredible impact on alertness, wakefulness and attention. 2. Have a high baseline level of activity. Whenever I sit for longer than ~1h30min (in ideal posture this can be increased significantly) I get into a sluggish/ foggy state in which nothing of significance will be achieved. Try to move frequently, low intensity is fine. Having a step counting device helps a lot. 3. Don't eat shit and don't eat too much. 4. Wim Hof Method. Both the breathing and the cold exposure part work wonders and are a magic pill/ quick fix against fatigue. Investing in your health and vitality with the e.g. the methods outlined above will not only help you in the short run, they will also compound and slowly increase your baseline energy levels.
  11. What is personality and what constitutes it (Interindividual differences in Strengths, Weaknesses, Worldview, Information processing, etc.)? How does it affect personal development? Especially: How do different personalities move through the stages of development in their own unique way? What are proven ways for gaining clarity on your own personality type (quality of Enneagram, Big Five, Myers-Briggs)? This is something I've heard nearly nothing about and would love to hear your take on this one Leo!
  12. Karlsruhe, Germany. I'd love to meet some fellow Actualizers!
