Strap yourself in tight Marty McFly, as I go on a cosmic journey with author of The Anxiety Solution, Bella Dodds–discussing crazy-sounding things like “equilibrating emotional trauma.” Okay, it’s not really that cosmic, but it’s definitely cool.
Listen, the work that Bella does is simply amazing. There is nothing else that I’ve ever come across that rivals it. Period. The problem is that many of the primary faces and voices in related fields that are doing something similar often come off as new agey quack douchebags. It kills me, because I’ve been dying to share this work for nearly a decade, but every time I do, the feedback I get is usually something like,
“Dude, why did you recommend that douchebag? He seems like a real tool.”
There seems to be this giant barrier made of 100% Cheddar cheese that stands between this information and the people that need it. Drives me nuts. So on the call, I try my best to encourage Bella to take us beyond the cheese border and into the center where the good stuff resides.
At the beginning of the call I was nervous that we weren’t going to get there. But we kept warming up. By the middle of the conversation, we were starting to get into it. And finally, towards the end of the call, I thought we finally made some progress. While it felt like we were just finally getting warmed up at the end of the call, I think this will be first of many eye-opening conversations that the two of us share.
Listen carefully and with an open mind. If anyone wants to volunteer to be taken through the process for the rest of the 180D podcast audience to hear, please send me an email or something ([email protected]). I’ll connect you with Bella, and we’ll do it.
