Show Notes

Why is going public with your life's work so terrifying? Is it the fear of rejection? Are you worried people will think you're selfish for focusing on your art, or that you're a sell-out for striving to gain visibility? You might be surprised to learn that the fear of putting yourself out there is ancestral; it was a part of our DNA even before social media. Historically, ostracism—being cast out from the group—could cost people their safety or even their lives. So it's no wonder that public disapproval can feel like literal, physical danger. But there's something even more dangerous: losing the opportunity to become the best version of yourself, to make the most of your one, precious life.

Claudia Cauterucci is a multilingual, multicultural psychotherapist, international speaker, author, and the creator of dynamic meditation. She has nearly 40,000 one-on-one clinical and coaching hours under her belt, helping people heal from ancestral trauma so that they can rise with greatness into the life they choose—something she calls "The Heaven on Earth Experience." Now, she joins The Selfish Gift podcast to share her wisdom and meditative strategies for overcoming fear to help you on your own journey to "Heaven on Earth."

In this episode, you'll learn:

  1. Why fear of rejection is an intrinsic part of the human experience and can often feel like physical danger, even when it's not.
  2. The "survival programs" we need to overcome to get past that fear and chase our dreams: wanting control, wanting approval, and wanting safety.
  3. How to prepare yourself for handling triggers of past traumas and the inevitable—yes, inevitable—experience of disapproval.
  4. Practical mental tools and dynamic meditation strategies you can do anywhere at any time to be more in control of your emotional responses.
  5. Why working toward becoming your highest, capital-S Self is not only what's best for you, but also what's best for the world.
