Sam, who calls himself “The Conscious Consultant” is the only specialist of his kind who uniquely utilizes this ancient wisdom with the modern perspective to empower people around the world. The idea is to get past what are the challenges you’re facing and live, feel, and be better without a guru or expert telling you need to be fixed. Sam’s mission is for each and every client he serves to fully embrace their authentic, empowered selves. The vision is to empower, inspire and uplift those he works with to uncover, activate and harness their superpowers. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the show, Mr. Sam Liebowitz. Welcome to the show, Sam.

Thank you so much, Rodney. I appreciate you having me on the show.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to share this time with you, learn from you, pick your brain and find out how we can change the game in our lives and overcome some of the challenges that we may be facing and do that. Do the things that you outlined in your mission, embrace those things to fully embody those things. I want to talk to you about that and how we can step into our authentic selves, overcome our challenges, and live a life of freedom, of love, of joy, fulfill the mission that you have for the world. How did you get into this business, first of all?

I’ve been an entrepreneur since about 1993. I’ve had a lot of different businesses in different industries. Everything from IT to aerospace to real estate. I used to have a start your own small business class many years ago. When I was doing the class, people would come up to me afterward and say, “I would like to do something but I’d love some guidance. Would you be willing to be a mentor for me?” I’d be like, “Yes, sure.” I started coaching people. I started being a mentor to young people who are looking to get into the entrepreneurial world. The interesting thing happened along the way when I was facing some very deep challenges.

When I got into real estate here in New York City and into the commercial market at the wrong time, prices were going up before the bubble. I got stuck with a big project and everything was collapsing down on me. Because of all of that, and from my connection to people, I put back on the path of personal development. The path of personal development put me back on what I would call is my spiritual path. I started taking a lot of seminars and workshops. There were different healing techniques, not because I ever expected to become a healer, but I was looking for my own healing because I had some very difficult things that happened in my life.

I knew I wasn’t being centered and with myself. All of a sudden, one of these workshops, the light bulb goes off. I did this technique I learned on this woman ever since she had when she was six years old. It floored me that all of a sudden, I realized I can help people with this. This isn’t for myself. I’m thinking like, “I’m an entrepreneur. What do you do with this stuff?” I said, “I’ve been a business consultant and working with people. I’m still a consultant but a different consultant now.” I stepped back onto my spiritual path and fully embraced it and said, “We need this most in the places where you find the least. That’s when this idea of The Conscious Consultant was born. I’m still a consultant of a slightly different nature than most of them.

Conscious Consultant, how did you come up with that name? What made you want to call yourself The Conscious Consultant?

It was a flash of inspiration. At the time, I was learning to trust my intuition. It came to me one night after the workshop. It’s about being more conscious of our lives. To help other people to be more conscious, more aware, more mindful in their lives and what they’re doing. It was something that came to me. In learning to trust my intuition, I said, “That’s what the message is coming. I’ll run with it.” I changed my LinkedIn page. I’d set up a LinkedIn page probably a couple of years before as a real estate professional.

I added it to it. I said, “I’m not going to hide anymore. I’m going to be front and center with it and not be behind the scenes.” A lot of people, when you first step into this world, you’re shocked by it because you’re worried that people are going to judge you because people do. Your friends and family are going to think you’re crazy because they will. You’re worried about all these things, so you don’t necessarily want to step into it. I had gotten to that point where I didn’t care. If people were going to judge me, they were going to judge me anyway. I felt like the expression goes in for a dime and for a dollar. Let’s go with it and see what happens. If everyone hates it, I can always change it later.

What is the consciousness in your title? What is that all about? You’re unique. There are lots of consultants out there, but you’re The Conscious Consultant. What is so unique about the consciousness of it all?

We do not grow when we continually live with unconscious patterns that trap us. Click To Tweet

The reason why I called myself The Conscious Consultant and the reason why I have it so much front and center in my branding is because it’s about encouraging people to be more conscious. It is about being more awake and more aware of life. When we’re more aware and awake in our day-to-day life, we can shift and change. We can stop living into those unconscious patterns, those unconscious ways of beings that trap us. We never grow. We’re more liberated and we’re more empowered because we’re no longer saying, “Why does X, Y or Z always happen to me?” As we bring more consciousness to it, we can see the patterns. We can see what’s going on underneath. We can start living a better, happier, more successful, more fulfilled life where we’re showing up as the best versions of ourselves.

You believe that the reason why we don’t show up as the best version of ourselves or maybe accomplish all that we would want to accomplish, live the life that we would want to live is because we’re not aware of how to do those things. Do you think there are some levels of unawareness and a level of consciousness that needs to be had? Is that where you’re going with this?

It’s not about being unconscious about what we’re doing. It’s being unconscious about how we are being because how we are being is more important than what we’re doing. If we’re being more conscious, we will naturally do more conscious things. If we’re being more aware, more mindful, we will know the right things to do. We will see situations more clearly how we’re showing up in the situation so that we can show up differently, more appropriately in a way that serves us more as opposed to serving us. I’m sure we all know people who are unconscious about something in their life. They come to a meeting and maybe they say something very inappropriate.

Every time they open their mouths, they say something inappropriate around certain people, around a woman, around people of color or whoever, it doesn’t matter. They don’t even realize they’re turning people off by what they’re saying and how they’re saying. By being more conscious and they wake up to it, all of a sudden, they realize, “Maybe I shouldn’t be cracking those jokes in mixed company. Maybe I shouldn’t be saying these things. Maybe I need to pay more attention to who’s in my audience.” They start being able to connect with people because they’re no longer blocked by their own unconsciousness and lack of awareness.

Let’s talk about how we make that transition. Someone who feels like they want to be conscious, more aware, that’s the trend that’s going on. How does one begin to be more conscious?

First, you need to humble yourself a little bit. You have to at least feel that you can do better in something. You need to feel like things aren’t jelling. They aren’t clicking right. I’m not making the connections I would like to make. At least say like, “There’s something here for me to learn. I’m a big believer in always having a beginner’s mind.” There’s an old Buddhist proverb about a student who goes searching for the master. He goes to trials and everything. He climbs up this tall mountain. He finally finds the master. He starts telling the master all these amazing things that he did to come, to meet him and to want to be with him.

The master asked him if he would like some tea. He’s like, “Yes, sure.” He puts out a teacup and he starts pouring the tea. The student is still talking. All of a sudden, the teacup is overflowing. It’s overflowing the dish, in the plate and onto his lap. The student is like, “Master, what are you doing?” Can’t you see the tea is overflowing?” He said, “As you cannot add any more tea into a full cup, I cannot add anything into a mind that’s already full.” By having the beginner’s mind, we empty our cup and we say, “We’re ready to receive.” The first thing is to say, “I have something to learn.” Is there a way I can be better, do better, understand better? At least that question starts to lead us in the direction of what do I have to learn? How can I be more mindful, more present? How can I show up better in the world that serves me and my mission?

Was there a second step to that? I noticed you said that’s the first thing, I didn’t know if there was a second thing. I want to make sure I give you space, the second thing if there is one.

That’s how you start. There are probably many steps. The next step is the self-reflection, which is the continuation. You try something, you learn something, how does it apply to you in your life and your business? What are you doing? Maybe you try something and maybe it doesn’t fit. It doesn’t feel right. You step back. You try something else. You try to self-reflect. It’s this constant cycle of never-ending improvement that keeps you moving along. As I like to say, peeling back the layers of the onion as we dig deeper and deeper to get further and further closer to our true authentic nature inside ourselves.

It aligns with the idea that change starts within. This is the epitome of change starts within. You know as well as anyone else, often we seek change from the outside. We seek to change the environment. We seek to change things that sometimes are not truly within our control. When those things don’t succumb to what we want them to, there’s frustration and we’d go on into this swirl and domino effect of things. You’re touching on something there that I want to dive into. It’s difficult sometimes to be aware because we think we are more aware of what we are. When you talk about consciousness and being present, it’s about taking that step back and living in the moment. It’s not so much what’s going on outside. It’s not so much what’s going on out there. It’s all about what’s going on here. When you talk about people that are facing difficulties or challenges, those things are out there.

GCM 74 | The Conscious Consultant

The Conscious Consultant: Being more aware and awake in your day to day life allows you to shift and change.

 

Let me say something about what you’re saying because I want to make a very clear distinction. This is something I work with my clients all the time about it. When I’m coaching somebody, it’s one of the essential things that we always start with. One of the reasons why I do it is because it is so fundamental. We have absolutely no control over what happens outside of us. We think we can, but we don’t because we don’t know what’s going to happen with the economy. We don’t know what’s going to happen with nature. We don’t know if a tree is going to fall over onto our car, if someone is going to do some crazy things. We don’t have any control over that. What we do have 100% control over is how we respond to that situation. The level of control that we have over how we respond to any given situation, it is only equal to our level of awareness, presence and consciousness. We don’t have control over whether somebody else purchases our product or uses our company. What we do have is the ability to reflect on it, shift, change and not react, but respond in a way that serves us.

What do you say to people that may come to you that feel like they’re stuck? They have a difficult time getting unstuck.

One of the reasons why I do what I do is because I’ve been there. I’ve been in that place of feeling stuck and needing a different perspective. I didn’t necessarily want someone to tell me what I needed to do, but I wanted some support in the area that it’s one of the reasons why I work with people. I’ve developed the four elements system, about helping people to understand the four major aspects of ourselves as beings and where we are out of balance or not in harmony with them. It can be relatively easy to see when you understand how the elements are, what they represent and how you can be too much one way or another, or in an inappropriate way in one than the other. Those four elements are a fire which is the mind, water which is heart, earth which is body, and air which is spirit. What is the mind? What is fire? Fire, it’s power. It’s energy but out of control, it burns things down.

Our mind is a very powerful tool, but when we’re too up in our minds, it can spin and spin. We don’t get anything done because we’re thinking about all the possibilities. This can go wrong and that can go wrong. What is water? Water is all-encompassing. It’s what brings things together. Water is heart, our emotion. That’s what we need to connect with people. For instance, you may have a great idea for your business. It’s the most amazing thing. If you don’t connect with people, it’s not doing you any good. You may use your mind to come up with this new product, a new idea, new service, but you have to go out and get people interested in it, which means then you’ve got to talk to people. You’ve got to connect. You’ve got to come from the heart space.

Being in the body, the earth is what grounds us. Earth is what helps us to be practical and sure we have a roof over our heads and be able to pay our bills, but too much earth and we’re stuck in the mud. We can’t move forward because we’re too stuck in the details. We’re too stuck in our day-to-day life. Spirit is an inspiration. It’s a higher calling. It’s greater knowledge and air is our creativity. When we’re too stuck, we can’t be creative. What do we do when we’re too stuck? Maybe sitting, meditating, clearing our mind and allowing that inspiration, that creativity to come through. If we’re too up in the air, we’re ungrounded. We’re not returning phone calls. We’re not connecting to people on a practical level so we also need the earth. We need all of these elements, earth, air, fire and water. If we understand that not the balance, but the harmony between them and when to dance from one aspect to another and in what situation do they best fit for what we need?

How does one do that? Someone is reading this and saying, “That’s great. It sounds good, but how do I put that into play in my life?”

When I work with people, the first thing I have to understand is where they’re at. A lot of people mostly come to me because of business issues, career issues, very practical stuff. All I need to do is ask a few questions and try to get a good sense of what’s going on in their life, whatever is affecting them in business, whatever is not working there. It’s the same thing that’s not working for the rest of their life. It’s seeing what is that energetic pattern I call it. It’s seeing, what is that thing, the common thread through all of the difficulties that they’re having? That’s why working with a coach, mentors and consultants, somebody outside of yourself is so important. We can only see that because we’re in the middle of it. When you’re in the middle of things, you’re emotionally involved, you’re attached to stuff, it’s very difficult to get a clear perspective. When you work with someone else and the most successful people all have coaches and they don’t even have one coach, they have a coach for all different areas of their life.

You hire somebody, you work with somebody who’s not so attached emotionally to things and they can see things more clearly. If they point out, “The way that person in your office is treating you, does that remind you of anybody?” “Yes, just like my older brother did when I was a kid. He always did this or that.” All of a sudden, there’s the pattern. It’s the family issues repeating themselves. It all comes down to our early years. It never ceases to amaze me whatever challenges we’re dealing with in the day-to-day life, there’s always some root. There’s some pattern that goes back to early childhood. It’s hard to see that when it’s yourself. Even I have trouble, I need to go to other people in order to help me see where I’m not being fully conscious of what’s going on.

Your consciousness is all developed on those belief systems, upbringings, programming, all of that shapes your consciousness. There’s a lot of deprogramming that has to happen in order for you to develop a new consciousness. That requires going back addressing some of those childhood issues, the belief that was developed during that time that we carried over to adulthood. It’s challenging those things. You probably do this all the time with your class, challenging those limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are the core of your consciousness. The things you believe and the way you see things, the perspectives that you have in life.

Mostly their beliefs about ourselves, but 80% of it are beliefs we believe about ourselves that we can’t do this, we can’t do that, we’re a certain way or we’re not a certain way. It’s fascinating how even the tiniest things from childhood could have been some traumatic experience for us that caused us to believe something about ourselves that we live into that, day after day. What happens? We end up attracting people who reinforce that idea because our energy, the way we’re being is bringing those same situations to us over and over again. It’s not doing that to give us a hard time or to bang us over the head. It’s to teach us a lesson. Life wants us to improve. Life wants us to live better so that we can learn from it. Once we learn from it, we can change, grow and be better.

The constant cycle of never-ending improvement keeps you moving along. Click To Tweet

This is good and accurate. I don’t think anyone can go through a change. We talk about changing the game or changing your trajectory of life. It all starts with you, the inner you. It goes back to how you look at yourself, how you feel about yourself. You’re talking about setting goals. The goals that you set are based on how you view yourself in your ability that you feel, that you have to reach those goals. That’s all in your consciousness.

You set very unrealistic goals so that you never reached them. You get disappointed. It’s like, “Nothing I ever want works out.” Either we don’t set high enough goals or we set unrealistic goals or we set goals that don’t motivate us enough so we don’t end up doing. There are many different ways in which we can short circuit that. That’s why I’m not your traditional coach or consultant that believes you’ve got to set goals, not that you shouldn’t set smart goals, but that’s not my focus. You can set all the smart goals you want in the world if you are short circuit being yourself, that energetic pattern is still there, you’re still only going to get so far. Whereas once you work out that energetic pattern, once you get through that process, shift your perspective, shift your understanding, shift the way you’re being in the world, it can be a pretty dumb goal and you’ll still make it. It’s how your being in the world is almost not completely, but almost more important doing in the world.

Getting back to what you said about the goal, it’s almost like a validation. If you set too far and you fall short, that’s your validation of what you thought about yourself in the first place, the consciousness. What are the indicators? What are some things that you feel are red flags that maybe are some signs that I need to take a step back? Maybe I need to humble myself. Maybe I need to take a look at how I view myself.

The first most obvious one is when you’re triggered. When somebody acts a certain way, says something and it pushes your buttons, that is gold. That is giving you the best information about where your work is. If there’s somebody out there that you have to deal with and you can’t stand them for whatever reason, that is gold. You don’t want to think about it like you’re exactly like them, but what you see is some reflection. It bothers you because there’s somewhere in yourself. It’s resonating with you. Either the exact same, the opposite or some aspect of it. I remember I was coaching somebody and there was somebody in their office who was cheap.

It bothered them so much that they were so cheap and they were always talking about how cheap this person was. I go, “Are there any ways in which you’re cheap?” “No. I’m very generous. Ask all my friends, they always say I’m very generous.” I’m like, “What about your family? What would your family say?” They stopped. What the client admitted was that they were very generous with their friends, but they were very cheap with their family. Other people might be cheap with themselves. They’re very generous with everyone, with themselves. When they see somebody else being cheap, it triggers them because they know they’re not generous with themselves. It all starts with us. We can’t truly be generous with another person until we are generous with ourselves.

What major shift has helped you the most in your own life?

About a few years ago, I started doing this Shamanic work. That work has made a quantum difference from doing personal, spiritual work, which I felt was always very external oriented. You’re making all this external effort to affect an internal change. When I started doing this Shamanic work, it was more working from the inside out than the outside in. A huge part of it was about self-care and learning to value and take care of myself. Back a few years ago when I started doing this, nobody was talking about self-care. Over the last few years, I hear about it so much in the conversation. I finally understood why self-care is so important.

It’s so important because it’s you making the physical action to show yourself, to show your nervous system, to show your mind, your heart, your body and your spirit that you do love yourself. You can say you love yourself all day long, all night long until the cows come home. If you’re not doing the action of showing that you love yourself, it doesn’t mean anything. When we practice self-care, it’s an act of self-love. That’s why it’s important. It’s like going out and getting that massage when you need one, even if it feels a little expensive. Taking the day off when you needed, even though you know people are relying on you, but you still need that day off to rejuvenate, to restore yourself, to rest.

Getting enough sleep at night, I’m in New York City and everyone is going so crazy here and people are so sleep deprived. You keep doing that long enough and all kinds of diseases start to show up. We need our rest. We need our sleep. It’s brought up a big thing for me that this whole cult of productivity, corporations are all about being more productive. “You’ve got to be more productive.” It’s great for the corporation, great for the government, great for the GDP, lousy for the individual. When we’re so focused on productivity and we make that our number one thing, other stuff gets sacrificed and breakdown. It’s our health, our relationships, our friendships, something gets sacrificed for that productivity. We’re not living, being happy, fulfilled and being of contribution as much as we could be.

What do you say to the person that’s reading this and they say, “I have big goals. I have big dreams. I have all of this stuff that I want to do. I have all these people dependent on me?” There’s not enough time in a day to find that balance.

GCM 74 | The Conscious Consultant

The Conscious Consultant: We have absolutely no control over what happens outside of us, but we have 100% control of how we respond to situations.

 

There is always enough time in the day. The timing of your goals may not serve you the same way. We all have the same 24 hours. It’s all about making different priorities. It doesn’t have to all get done immediately. Some things can wait. It’s about prioritizing what’s the most important thing. Remembering why we’re doing some of this stuff. If periods of time, I don’t want people to get the impression that I’m fanatic about anything because I’m not fanatical. There are certain times when we’ve got to push ourselves. We’ve got to work a little bit harder because there are certain projects, deadlines, but we want to get done by a certain time. That’s not every single day of our lives. If we have big goals, big dreams, a lot of people relying on us, it’s that much more important that we take care of ourselves. It’s that much more important we take care of our health, we exercise, we meditate, that we do practice self-care so we can show up and be the best version of ourselves.

If we showed up, we’re drained, we’re tired and we’re stressed out, are we serving people? Are we being able to contribute in the best way possible? No. As a matter of fact, there’s a wonderful book written by a Buddhist monk Geshe Michael Roach called The Diamond Cutter. In this book, he talks about his story of how his Lama, his teacher kicked him out of the monastery. He had to go get a job. He got a job in the gym industry. One of the things he negotiated was a Buddhist principle of taking a day off in the middle of the week, doing no work for that day. He only works Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. Because he didn’t think about work, he maybe went out for a walk in the woods. He didn’t answer his phone, he didn’t do anything.

When he came back, he was completely refreshed and he was able to be more creative at his job. He was able to come up with better ideas. He was more clearheaded. He made better decisions. He was the third employee. He stayed with the company. He built it up until Warren Buffett bought it for $250 million. He has tons of other principles in the book but these things work. People reading this, they’re going, “This is crazy.” Don’t believe a word I say, try it on for size. If something resonates with you, if you see a difference, if it impacts your life, great. Use it. If it doesn’t, throw it out and find something else that does. I am talking about what I have found works for me, the advice, the way I’m being and the way I work with my clients, what has worked for them.

I believe that we have to incorporate those things into our daily lives as part of the process. There’s a process to everything. You have to incorporate things like self-care into your daily activities. It has to be built in because that’s the only way you can consciously incorporate those things to make sure that they get done. Otherwise, life happens. Excuses happen. People don’t do it unless it’s that important to you. You make that conscious effort to do it.

Put it in your schedule, free time, meditation time, workout time. If you’re one of those people who is totally driven by your schedule. If it’s not on your schedule, it doesn’t exist. Put it in your schedule, make that time. We all need some free time during the day and during the week, put in free time, unschedule to give yourself some space and some time to see what shows up. Maybe during that free time, you go for a walk in the park or an old friend calls you up or wants to go out for drinks or something, you go and get together and that human connection feeds you. Without space, we can’t allow life’s magic to happen.

We spend time doing so many things, working, taking care of other people, doing this and that. We spend the least amount of time with ourselves. We don’t spend a lot of time with ourselves.

If you talk to a lot of people, they’re uncomfortable if they’re all alone by themselves. They have a hard time sitting with themselves, being still and being present with themselves. Usually, that’s a pretty good indication that there’s something going on there that they haven’t dealt with.

How did you get to know yourself if you don’t spend time with yourself?

It’s like when do you give yourself the opportunity to daydream, to come up with new ideas or to process the energy of the day. That’s why I’m such a big believer in meditation. I’m a big believer that meditation doesn’t have to be long. If 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes is all you can spare, do that. Meditation doesn’t have to be that long. It can be you sitting, being with yourself, feeling what’s going on in your body. Here in the West, we’ve so idolized the mind that we think our body stops at our neck and from our neck down to our feet almost doesn’t exist. There’s a lot of information in our body. When something doesn’t feel right, it doesn’t feel right in our body. If we take the time to open ourselves, to feel into it and to feel what is the body trying to tell me, there is a wealth of information and a wealth of knowledge there that we normally never access.

I want to go back to this word consciousness because there’s a connection between consciousness and stillness as we are talking about meditation. What is your take on that as The Conscious Consultant? What is your take on stillness?

We can't truly be generous with another person until we are generous with ourselves. Click To Tweet

Stillness is how we become more present. When we’re still, we’re open and we’re able to be more present because when we’re always moving, doing whatever, our focus is elsewhere. We’re not being present to what’s going on right here, right now. That stillness is essential for being conscious because when we’re more fully present, we’re being more conscious. One of my teachers says that compassionate presence is true power.

How do we get to that?

It’s practice. That’s why these things are known as practice. Put it in your schedule morning or evening, whenever. Usually, it’s not good to do it before you go to bed at night, but the evening time is okay. I don’t care if it’s on the train going to work or on the bus, sit and close your eyes. If you’re not comfortable closing your eyes, keep your eyes open. Be with yourself and see, are there thoughts flying in and flying out? How do you feel? Do you have pain in your back and your neck? What’s going on? Take the time to sit. You’re not interacting with anyone else. You’re being aware of what’s going on within you. Don’t be attached to it.

Don’t make judgments about it. Be aware of it. Notice it and say, “Thank you for the information.” Stay still and see what comes up next. A lot of people think meditating is like you don’t think at all. That’s not what meditation is about. Thoughts come and thoughts go, it doesn’t matter. The more we sit still, the more that process of thoughts coming and going starts to slow down. Over a very long period of time when you do this practice, you can get to that point. That’s not where we start. That’s not the way most people end up being able to meditate. It’s sitting and noticing, what are the thoughts coming up? When I meditate, I still have thoughts coming and going.

I personally would say that practicing stillness is a form of prayer.

I like a phrase, “Prayer is when we talk to God and meditation is when we listen.”

What advice would you give to someone if there’s one thing that you would leave behind to someone who’s struggling with a situation?

Get help, seek somebody out. You don’t have to do it all on your own. We’re such an individualistic society by nature, entrepreneurs are like we’ve got to do everything. Get a team around you. Find a mentor, a coach, someone you resonate with, who you feel gets you and you feel you understand them, that you can develop a good relationship with that you trust. Trust is very important, but find somebody else and work with that person. The first person you end up working with, if they’re not that helpful, great, you’ve eliminated one person, find somebody else, but keep looking until you find the person that makes the difference for you.

I want to echo that because there are so many coaches out there. It’s not uncommon to find someone that you may not resonate with. It doesn’t work out. Don’t stop there. That happens a lot. People view coaches and mentors as people who are out for a dollar, for a buck. When things don’t go right, “I’m never doing that again.” They stay in that situation and that’s not the thing to do. It’s a trial and error thing.

Also, different coaches and different mentors, they have different niches. They have different kinds of people that they can resonate with because of their own life experience. I know several women who are coaches, their best client is a woman coach who’s been through what they’ve been through. Like one woman who only works with divorced women, another woman who works with women who are survivors of breast cancer. Based on your individual niche, there’s this person who has the background, have the experience that you resonate with what they say. You feel it and go, “That’s the guy I want to work with.”

How can people work with you?

The best way is to go to my website, which is www.TheConsciousConsultant.com. If you go to Gift.TheConsciousConsultant.com and you sign up for my newsletter, you’ll get a free an hour-and-a-half audio of uncovering our unconscious blocks to abundance. It’s a session I did for a group a number of years ago. There are wonderful exercises. There’s a lot of great information in there. If you want to contact me, there is a contact form on my website. I work in person if you’re in Manhattan or virtually via phone, Skype or Zoom if you’re at a distance. Shoot me an email, Sam@TheConsciousConsultant.com and ask me questions. I’m happy to answer them for you.

Can they reach you also on social media?

You’ll find me on Facebook, it’s Facebook.com/consciousconsultant. On Instagram, I’m @ConsultantConscious. I’m on LinkedIn, Sam Liebowitz, Twitter @SamLiebowitz. I’m all over the place. If you Google me, you can’t not find me.

Thank you, Sam, for coming on the show. This has been a very conscious conversation.

I have to tell you it’s a pleasure to be, as I like to say on this side because I do my own show on TalkRadio.NYC, Thursdays at noon. I’m used to interviewing all the time. It’s always fun for me to be interviewed by somebody else. If you like the things we say, you probably would like the kind of people and guests I have on my show, please feel free to check out my show on TalkRadio.NYC.

Thanks again for coming on the show, Sam. This has been a wealth of information, a very heartfelt, very centered conversation. Hats off to you for what you’re doing and who you are, who you’ve been being in the world. It’s a beautiful thing.

Thank you so much, Rodney. I appreciate you having me on your show.

I would like to ask you, what is maybe a Game Changer Mentality message you would leave with us?

The Game Changer Mentality I would encourage people to adopt is you are not broken. You do not fix. You don’t need to spend an endless amount of time going to seminars and workshops, trying to fix something that’s wrong with you. There’s nothing wrong with you. It does not mean there’s no room for growth. It does not mean there’s no room for more self-care and self-love, but you are not broken and you do not need to be fixed.

Start with self-love, self-care and stillness. Thank you for reading another successful episode. Until next time, peace and love.
