3: Connecting with Imagination for Personal Growth


In this episode we explore:

  • Myths, stories, and archetypes and how they overlap.
  • The everyday myths we tell ourselves that affect our behavior and the decisions we make?
  • How beliefs become hardwired into children through stories.
  • Tribal masks/personas/symbols that humans believe in through the collective unconscious.
  • When we begin to understand that we are one being made up of different aspects we can consciously use these differences to give ourselves the power or qualities we want at any given time.
  • Both Clay and Naomi suggest ways that you can start to use this information within Personal Development.

  1. Loved the podcast Naomi and Clay. Thanks for the instructions to your Mom – I am one of those who needed simple instructions ( or that is the story I have been telling myself for years;-)

    1. Thanks, Rita! Mum will be delighted to know that those simple instructions have helped other people too! As for, “Is this a story?” – if you expand or reframe that “story” as “Having simple instructions helps me do what I want to do quicker or more effectively,” how does that resonate? If it’s a story though, then you need to go through the “How is this serving me?” filter! Naomi
