The Shift To Freedom
Unlocking the Wisdom of The Lion King: Balance, Responsibility, and Worthiness with Paige Easter
Have you ever felt like there was something fundamentally wrong with you? That no matter how hard you try, you'll just never be good enough, smart enough, strong enough? If so, you're not alone. This is one of the most common challenges that I see people face in personal development.
In fact, it's one of the major themes explored in the Lion King.
We all know it's a classic movie, but did you know that it's a rich source of lessons about our own journeys to freedom and transformation? In this episode of the Shift to Freedom Podcast, we discuss the movie's themes of balance, responsibility, worthiness, worry, and the importance of pain in healing.
