ShamanTalk: Episode 49
August Theme: Dolphin Medicine
A Tale of Two Truths
“This and that are true”
Dolphin Spirit is a reminder of duality. As the Dolphin is both a mammal and a sea creature, so too is Dolphin Spirit both “this” and “that”.
Two truths co-exist: The story you tell and another as well. The duality of life is present when we are suffering, for there is a blessing too, in the helpers that appear.
I had a difficult interaction in my life this week and it put me in a thoughtful place.
I have also been working with Dolphin Spirit and the idea that both this and that are true.
This weeks podcast is all about perspective, our memories and how we can build emotional intelligence in difficult interactions.
What does that mean for us?
Perspective is important and it’s OK if people have different perspectives based on their differing values.
Human memory is notoriously unreliable, especially when it comes to details.
Scientists have found that prompting an eyewitness to remember more can generate details that are outright false but that feel just as correct to the witness as actual memories.
In day-to-day life, this isn’t a bug; it’s a feature.
I’ll discuss five important aspects of perspective. Because building this type of emotional intelligence is a key component of happy, drama free living.
I’ll also talk about how I understand this concept of Two Truths and what my balance looks like.
For example, I have my value structure that I understand and have an intimate relationship with.
I know what OK for me is and what isn’t.
I understand that my initial reaction to situations is coloured by my life experience, trauma and also my values. I always take a minute to check in and ask myself – what is triggering my trauma and causing me to react in a way that’s not ethical and what has happened here that goes against my values. Both can be true in just one interaction!
Join me this week for a discussion on memory, emotional intelligence and letting go of right and wrong.
