Episode Info: #109 My awesome guest this week is Shane Kelliher. A self-confessed self-help junkie, over perfectionist and seeker.   Shane joined my Let It In Program during 2019 after many years of meditating, searching and still struggling for answers. I invited Shane on the podcast to share his journey, Enjoy!   Show Notes from Shane's journey: • Been a seeker since my 20s, I felt like I was missing something, there had to be more to life, I wasn't truly happy. • I became OBSESSED with self-help material, looking for that thing that was going to turn my life around. Only a lot later  I realised the whole time I was sub-consciously telling myself that 'I'm not good enough as I am', I need to learn more. I was completely addicted, one book to the next to the next, cramming it in. • Crippled by 'perfectionism' in all areas of life, everything needed to be impossibly perfect! - I later realised it didn't even come from love for the thing, but more from fear of judgement for getting something wrong and looking less than perfect. • Brother diagnosed to Stage 4 cancer in my early 30s - this is how I heard of you through your 180 podcasts. I became obsessed with health, trying to find answers to his condition. • Heard of ayahuasca, became obsessed with it (the calling) was this the 'silver bullet' I've been looking for? • My brother passed away 4.5 years after diagnosis - I was at an extremely low point if I died in the Jungle so be it. So almost immediately traveled to Peru, the Amazon for 5 Aya ceremonies, got absolutely DESTROYED - the most humbling experience of my life, but then rebuilt with such profound love. But I believe I wasn't ready for all the messages I received.... • Broke up with a long-term girlfriend - we had grown apart even further after aya. Hit another low-point. • Went all in on starting a digital marketing business, for months, got my first client, but there was so much inner-resistance, I hated it and I still was basing my all my SELF-WORTH on everything outside of myself (achievement, possessions, money, etc) • It wasn't until I abandoned the constant striving and the self-help consumption and 'let go' from sheer exhaustion that opportunities really started to come... • First one - Let it in academy... I've been meditating for years, but I decided to go in with a beginners mindset, starting with the basics and within a week I had experienced one of the most profound moments of my life - an almost out-of-body experience showing me how cruel I was being to myself, I burst into tears but was then met with bliss like I never experienced as I knew I'd found what I was looking for all these years - love and respect for myself (this has been the turning point of my life) • saw adverts about the retreat, I couldn't really responsibly afford it after all the time I had off starting a business but I just knew I had to go so I leaned in on that feeling "F##k it, I'm all in, I'll find a way". • The retreat was ex...
