Awakening the Energy Inside Us with Michael Becker

Your Freedom Podcast

In this podcast, Anna is with Michael J Becker, a spiritual content creator, truth seeker, life coach, and heart-centered entrepreneur. In 2019, he created New Earth Knowledge which has grown to 60k followers in just two years.  Michael educates the awakening collective about the metaphysics of existence and the nature of reality. He also teaches others how to live to their highest potential, step into their life purpose, and create the lifestyle of their dreams. As a coach, Michael helps other people by investing in their own intellectual advancement and maturity. Michael is also a well-known content marketing and business growth expert. Let’s find out how Michael was able to awaken the energy inside him to be able to share it with other people.  They also talked about: 02:50  How the pillars relate to what Michael does 06:17  The story of his own awakening 08:43  Tips he can provide to the listeners 12:22   Does Michael limit beliefs on what he does 14:12   What does he do and how he can help other people 15:36   How can people connect with him 16:12   What is New Earth and knowledge 19:15   How can he help people with their own journey 22:38   What does freedom mean for him Michael also taught us about awakening and it’s remembering who you are, stepping into your purpose, and consciously creating the reality of your dreams. Quotes: “The revelation of layers within me that I'd never been privy to before started to come to the forefront. And I started to realize I didn't feel free, and I wasn't totally living my purpose or my passion in simply following that linear trajectory that had been kind of set up in many ways for me to where I didn't really, I wasn't in control of my life.” “I wanted to share. I wanted to become a purveyor of knowledge and that's really where it started for me.” “In fact, most of us have many, many dark nights, you know, throughout our lives, you could call them many life crises, you know, they will pile up and they will force you to continuously relook at who you are, and your relationship to the world.” “The first thing is to sit with that and to acknowledge your emotions and to truly feel that like, you need to be your own coach. At the end of the day, we live in our own minds, and all we have is our own heart spaces and what's going on within there, nobody will ever know what you are truly thinking, feeling, and being” “Recognize that your feelings are valid like you're totally justified in being in that space. It's okay and very much like just to state the obvious: what's happening in the world right now is unprecedented.” “If you're feeling depressed, sad or angry, or any variation of those things, channel that and transmute that into positivity and make COVID work for you make the lockdowns work for you, you know, you're not a victim of having to do these things, or wear masks or any of that, like that's a byproduct of what we're going through.” “There's nothing that I can do for you, that you can do for yourself or that you won't do for yourself.” “I think it's an individual endeavor that you will start to tap into and that you will open up once you envelop yourself in your own, you know, inner work. And once you accumulate that light density within your own heart space to open up that communication, it's all within you.” “We're now entering a time where speaking out about your depression and your anxiety in this digital age, where distractions are literally flying at us from every angle is respected, it's actually needed.” “If you're feeling restricted, or like you want to push that away, that is ego. That's like the mind. That's not the soul. So when you hit the truth, that's the only moment you're going to be able to feel like you can relax. And that's exactly what we need to do.” “No one can infiltrate your energy sphere, you're protected. You know who you are. That is freedom.” Michael J Becker Check out Michael J Becker social media accounts Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/new_earth_knowledge/ Website: https://newearthknowledge.com/ Do you want to be a speaker/guest on my podcast?

Michael's takeaways: -Went through a 2018 spiritual awakening from a previous relationship  -That sparked a 180 degree turn away from corporate  -That’s what started the New Earth Knowledge IG account  -Also sparked the desire to make Life Coaching a key thing  -Put a lot of work into it and didn’t see the fruits of it  -Dove into how his propensity to do all of the projects at once and do more “stuff” is just a cover up for how to not face failure -Spinning 10 plates all the time and getting good at starting vs. finishing was a way for him to avoid going all in on anything and stay within the ‘potentiality’ comfort zone  -This was the part that kept him small  -Also realizing and never asking ‘what would life look like if I could succeed without all the desperate, hardcore work energy?’ Connect w/ Michael:  https://www.instagram.com/creatorshipcoaching/ https://www.instagram.com/new_earth_knowledge/ https://newearthknowledge.com/home/life-coaching/
