When we hear the term “survival state” it’s easy to associate it with life-threatening situations and trauma. But we’re in this state a lot more than we’re aware of. We’re unconsciously responding with fight-or-flight responses to many of our everyday situations, even if on a lower grade on the scale.
The thing is: since this state is so normalized - in your own body and brain, and in society - it will also seep into how you’re doing the self mastery work, or any other growth practices. When you learn how to recognize and shift out of it, doing your growth practices will feel easier and have a bigger effect.
In this episode of the Uncover YOU podcast, I give examples of how this reactive state dictates how you’re doing your self-growth work. I also discuss why you can’t reason your way out of this state, and what new levels of mastery you’re invited to… well, master… to recognize and get out from under its spell.
You find show notes in this post on my website.
Register for the workshop New Levels of Mastery where I guide you in recognizing your survival state and learning the language to shift out of it.
