Sam Liebowitz, will discuss all types of topics to help you raise your awareness
[EPISODE] Hiding In Plain Sight
This week, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam kicks off the new year with a very personal show. No guest, just you and him discussing how we use our pain and our trauma to keep ourselves from living a full life.
This will be a show that may touch on some nerves, it may be very confronting, but it is sure to move you to take a look at yourself like you’ve never done before.
Quote of the day: “To fix the world, you must first see it as broken, I’m not sure I’d go there.” Sam gives his interpretation of the quote. He explains how the quote is trying to remind us that the world isn’t broken, however there are crazy things that happen in the world. He goes on by saying these crazy things give us the opportunities to love ourselves more, bring something to the world, and love the world more. He delves into the idea of people seeing things in a different perspective. Sam then shares a quote from Abraham, and goes on to give his thoughts on the meaning of that quote. Sam says we can see a challenge as a problem or we can choose to focus on a solution.
Sam opens this segment by introducing the topic of “hiding in plain sight”. He gives us a personal story about how he got an awakening. Sam’s teacher said to him, “What do you gain by holding on to the pain?” and “As long as you hold on to the pain, you don’t have to show up”. Sam explains how he realized his teacher’s statements were true. He reflects on how he was not showing up 100% in several aspects of his life. He says we all hold on to pain because of our fears. The conversation transitions into the topic of self-care and learning how to deal with your own challenges. He ends the segment by briefly discussing how we have an avoidance issue; we look at others’ problems instead of looking at our own. (By doing that, we are “hiding in plain sight.)
Sam continues this segment by delving deeper into the aspect of hiding in plain sight. He gives us little quick stories about how he would show up to things/places, but he would not be there mentally. Although he would physically be present, he lacked focus. He explains how he used to blame others for his lack of focus, which took away his power and therefore made him a victim. Sam says learning to show up through pain is a process. We have to be consciously aware of our mindsets at all times. Sam concludes this segment by telling the audience how we have to be better at showing up and working on showing up. He challenges us to think about how we are being when we do physically show up to places.
This segment starts with Sam discussing how people-pleasing is an aspect of hiding in plain sight. Sam says we please people because we may not want to ruffle any feathers. The fear that we have which leads us to people-please is a fear of not being liked. We show up and are there, but we are not really sharing what needs to be shared. He challenges us to show and be authentic. Sams believes that the more we actually show up and be authentic, we will attract more people and in turn they will become more open and authentic.
