Sarah and Emily continue their conversation about Jonah Hill’s documentary Stutz (if you haven’t already, check out the latest episode of Inner Archeology for part 1).
In this episode, they talk about some powerful therapeutic modalities and tools from Stutz: part X, the string of pearls, and your shadow.
Key Points In Episode:
- This episode of Inner Archeology continues the conversation around Jonah Hill’s documentary Stutz that Emily and Sarah began to discuss last week. They now focus on therapeutic modalities.
- Emily just L-O-V-E-S how visual Stutz’s therapy tools are – particularly the little note cards with visual representations he draws, despite having Parkinson’s, and that he gives to all of his clients.
- A big #truth from Emily: ‘Having visual components is an incredibly powerful tool to make an abstract concept more tangible in somebody’s mind.’ Do you agree?
- The string of pearls is another powerful tool Stutz uses. Each pearl represents the next action you take in your life, be it getting out of bed, or launching a business.
- This is the important part. The pearls all hold equal value and the same weight, no action is more important than the other! That’s why it’s important to just take action, even an imperfect one.
- Emily thinks that if you were to assign the same value to each action in your life, you’d be able to remove a ton of self-judgment. Agree or disagree?
- We tend to evaluate our days based on the “big things” we accomplished without thinking that things like getting out of bed or drinking water can be what was needed to help you move forward so that in the future you could have those big accomplishments. #QuoteOfTheDay
- It’s about moving the storyline forward (yup, it’s as simple as that!). You can’t have future pearls without these ones.
- Sarah and Emily talk about the role that simple little actions like drinking a can of Coke play in life.
- Think about it for a second: if something is so meaningful and carries the same weight, then it’s meaningless. Every action holds the same value as the next one.
- Part X is another of Stutz’s therapeutic modalities. It’s a very judgmental part of you that keeps you small, a voice of impossibility. But at the same time, its negativity propels you into growth.
- There’s a quote that really stood out for Emily: ‘The highest creative expression for a human is being able to create something new right in the face of adversity.’
- For Sarah, nothing is more empowering than creating in the face of adversity… is that the same for you?
- Emily believes that you can reframe your relationship with Part X and that it doesn’t have to be so abrasive to you.
- Part X is different from the shadow, which is the part of your life that you were ashamed of (and that made Sarah burst into tears!).
- For Stutz, it isn’t just about acknowledging your shadow but it’s about understanding and trying to love it too.
- Have you signed up for the Inner Archeology Patreon page, yet? There may be some meditation with Emily’s shadow coming soon on there!
- Emily and Sarah discuss shadow work and inner child work – and their potential correlation.
