This is

(00:02):

First live from Los Angeles. Welcome to the Dr. Aaron show. We're all about manifestation transformation and breakthroughs. It's time to claim your birthright of prosperity, vitality and love. So grab your tea coffee, because together we're awakening the world. May you live your truth?

(00:20):

Live from Los Angeles. We come together each day to know truth, live on spiritual principle and align with universal law. We also come together in community in society and new thought global. We truly believe that when somebody awakens, they have a gift and message to bring to the world and together we are awakening the world. We are all about enlightenment, entrepreneurship, and empowerment. So I think it's very appropriate to talk about the kind of sadness and I'm sure a lot of depression out there in the midst of everything going on in the world. So the title of today's talk is feeling down in a funk and hopeless, the ultimate surrender. So I was speaking with a dear girlfriend and, um, she was saying that she just was feeling down that, um, actually even in the midst of all this, she's doing well financially, her business is still doing well.

(01:17):

Her family's well and all the above, but she just feels down. And, um, I think that first of all, we have to recognize that we are connected to everyone and everything. So if you don't have moments where you're feeling down, you're probably kind of lying to yourself in that. How can you not feel the sadness of the collective right now? It's impossible. You are connected to everything everywhere. So I first just wanna recognize and, and have people realize that there's nothing wrong with feeling down. It's a natural state of being alive. That life has all dynamics to it. But in particular, right now, we need to take a look at what's going on for us collectively and what is really happening and why people can feel hopeless or feeling down or in a funk in the midst of this. And obviously for some people, they think that they're feeling down or in a funk or hopeless because maybe they lost their job, or maybe they've lost a lot of money to their name, or maybe they don't have, you know, money to pay their bills or, or money to buy food, or who knows whatever that is.

(02:30):

And so they're looking and thinking, well, this is why I'm in a funk, okay. But we have to recognize that actually what's really going on is something even much bigger than that from a spiritual perspective, the entire work that we do is shifting back to the I am identity. And it is some of the hardest work you'll ever do in your life. We call it spiritual warfare because it's actually, uh, the greatest threat to the ego, which is being stripped of the identity and what is identity, right? So we have, um, identity, uh, of who we are in our title. Uh, we have identity of our, the relationship, the status of our relationship, uh, identity as being a mom identity as being a sister identity, being a friend identity as being whatever that is, we have identity and we attached to our identity out in the world.

(03:26):

We find our identity in who we are a man, a woman, whatever it is, what we look like, the size of our clothing, you know, our, how much we weigh. We get identity from the car that we drive. We get identity from the job that we have. We get identity by the people that we hang out with. We get identity through all the advertising and what we identify with, we get identity, identity, identity, and what's really happening right now is our identity is getting stripped at a, at a, a profound level through this shift in, in the pandemic and the lockdown that economical crisis is and everything, it's a spiritual, this is a spiritual, uh, like dying and reborn being reborn. So we're stripped of everything we don't get to keep. Right. And so it's happening is we've been stripped of a lot of things.

(04:17):

And we're stripped of say, being able to just go out and eat in a restaurant or we're being stripped of, of being able to just travel whenever, wherever what we're stripped of all these things. And as people, so many people are saying like the world is not gonna go back to how it was. We're not gonna go back to our traditional jobs. We're gonna, you know, work outta the house or whatever that is that we're, it's a whole new world. You know, the potential is that we're not just gonna be able to travel internationally whenever, wherever we not, we may not be able to ever go back to the old ways of so many things of what we, what we did. And in that, from a subconscious perspective, we recognize that what we thought made us happy, what we thought was our identity, what we thought mattered.

(05:06):

It shifts, you know, what we care about changes in the perspective. Uh, we, we no longer our values shift our values shift in the midst of this. And so what happens for people is if you haven't done your deep, deep core work and release the identity of this world and release those, um, kind of false identity of what we thought life was, it can be a real, a real hard time for people because they're trying, it's like, it's like being in a ship and you go out to sea and all of a sudden you don't see land anymore. You're just out in the middle of the sea. And in fact, you don't have any anchor going down to ground and you're floating out there and it can be a real scary experience, right? It's like everything you've ever known in life gets ripped out beneath you, the, the rug, as you know, it, your construct of what, what life is gets pulled out below you, oftentimes this will, same thing will happen.

(06:10):

Say when somebody's in a relationship or married and say their spouse cheats or something, and their entire world crumbles around them, because what they based their foundation, what they, their stable datum of life changed. And it really made them, uh, makes them really question all of life and, and who am I and what really matters. And there's no, there's no stable thing to kind of clinging onto. Same thing happens. Say, if you were in a, a tornado, you know, a tornado might lift you off the ground, like, like, uh, um, Dorothy in the wizard of Oz and all of a sudden you're going around circles and there's, and there's things up in the clouds and all these particles going all directions. And you're really overwhelmed and really confused because there's no ground to take a look at to get you oriented. And this is what's happening for people right now.

(07:01):

There's nothing to ground you. There's nothing stable. Everything's unknown right now. Everything's unknown of where you're gonna work exactly where you're gonna live. Where are you gonna be able to get food in the future? Like if we got into a really bad economical crisis or depression where there's no St there's no stability, there's nothing to clinging onto in your identity. There's nothing to clinging onto in the known and human beings in the mind wants to figure things out. So if you don't know things, people have a really hard time living in uncertainty. They wanna clinging onto things. The mind wants to clinging on to things. And so this is really life doing for you, what you can't do for yourself, because it really is where you have to ultimately surrender. You have to surrender and have faith that there's something going on for your highest good.

(07:51):

If all of life is designed for our awakening, that right now is the ultimate surrender to faith to recognize and, and totally get that there's something working for you and not against you. Cause look, if, if your hobbies are taken away, like I have friends that are in the, in the salsa dancing world, you can't go out in salsa, dance and hold people's hands and in the middle of a pandemic, right? Some people love the church or, you know, church, you can't go to church right now. Some people love the gym. You can't do that. So who are you? If you've been stripped of everything, like literally everything, you know, at a, at a level of questioning, what's it gonna be like, imagine you couldn't go back and do those things. You know, sometimes we get down because we can't create what we wanna create.

(08:41):

You know, sometimes we can't, you know, do the things we wanna do. And if we can't do that for in locked in kind of a prison and the effect of something feels like we're the effect of something then, then who are you? You, you know, what really matters? What do you really care about? And this is where we do the ultimate surrender. You know, I think that we've all surrendered mentally at some place in our life. Whether it's like, you know, we have to surrender and realize that, you know, nothing will fulfill us out there. Sometimes people surrender and they say, I don't wanna live, but I'm not willing to take my life, but I am gonna surrender to, you know, serving life and doing something. If I'm gonna be on this planet anyway, and this is an ultimate surrender of, you know, what would it be like, I invite you right now.

(09:37):

You know, if you're feeling down, if you're feeling in a funk, if you're feeling hopeless, I invite you to take the ultimate surrender and surrender to something beyond what you've known. You know, the world, as we open back up, eventually through this lockdown and through the pandemic, you know, you get to say what you want, not keeping up with the Jones. What would it be like? And I invite you to actually kind of play in this mentally during this time, you know, what would it be like if you didn't give an F, right? What if you didn't, you know, need to live where you live? What if you actually didn't need to do the right thing anymore for, you know, obviously not nothing like illegally, but what if you didn't need to do what's right thing in the eyes of, of your friends or your family or your children?

(10:28):

Like, what would it be like? You know, what, if you didn't need to be there for your family, what if you didn't need to be presentable to the world? What would you do? Where would you go? What if you, you know, only had one year to live, you know, live like you're dying as a song, says, like, what if you actually surrendered? What if you surrendered to something beyond what you've known? What if you let go of everything you've ever known? What if you let go of all your material belongings, what if you let go and you, you know, just everything. What if you did the ultimate surrender? What if you said, you know, use my life for the highest good. I don't know what that is for you. You know what, if you ultimately surrendered and let go of everything, the world, the old world, this is the new world and it's being born right now.

(11:26):

And the coolest thing is that it's like, again, the universe or God does for you, what you can't do for yourself. Like, what if this is, is your higher self saying, you get to do it all over. You get to start new without having a whole new lifetime. Right now life's presenting you with something like a total reset. And sometimes it looks like it's hard. Cause you gotta let go of everything you've ever known. But in some way there's a huge blessing in having to let go of everything. So what, what now? Where do you wanna go? You know, maybe it's an entirely different area of the world. Maybe it's recreating a completely new career. Maybe it's, you know, have an entirely new way. You do things with friends. I know my friends, you know, we were doing so many things that I think why don't we just, you know, hang out in each other's homes and do some potlucks and, and have ceremonies and do stuff.

(12:31):

And then instead of always going out to, you know, different areas, you know, just, just different things, different ways of creating your life. And I think that every single one of my friends right now is saying, if we're not in LA for media and for studios and being out at fancy restaurants and doing all of things that we do in LA, you know, it's a very LA thing, you know, it's been so beautiful during this lockdown. You know, we're getting so much more in touch with mother nature in Los Angeles. And I long for mother nature. I love being one with mother nature. Oftentimes I'll go off on trips alone just to be with mother nature, to be with the stars at night, and to be able to meditate in silence all alone, you know, what would it be like if we're stripped of everything materially for a minute, what do we really care about? Who do we really care about? And this is the opportunity. So know that this is different than normal of feeling down. And I think that a lot of people again are thinking, well, I'm down because, um, the E economy or I'm down because I lost my job or I'm down because I'm stuck in my home or I'm down because no, it's not out there in the world. You're feeling down because there's something that's known that you gotta let go of from a spiritual perspective, the identity of being attached to those old systems.

(14:02):

What if you're feeling down because you gotta let go of all that so that you can be reborn and create from nothing. It's not gonna ever fulfill you. The economical, you know, stability of a job it's never ever going to fulfill you. If you know, if you just got outta your house, remember, do you remember people are so have such bad amnesia. They forgot that they got down before, even when the economy wasn't whatever, or when you did have your job. And when you, you were able to get out and about, or when you weren't in arguments with your, you know, uh, partner, you still had those days when you're like, I'm in a funk and I'm feeling down and I'm feeling hopeless. You forgot it. Remember it doesn't matter. What's going on in the world. You still get in those funks, you still get hopeless.

(14:49):

You still feel down sometimes. And we keep trying to find something out there. That's gonna be the answer spiritually. It's never out there. It's never out there. We have to find that place within. We have to find our own authentic swing. We have to find our own truth and stop looking to the world to compare ourselves to whomever or think that we're gonna be happy when the world goes back to be normal, it's never gonna be normal. You're always gonna feel that void until you find your own inner strength, that unshakable, that undeniable aspect of yourself that is not in this world. That's not of this world. It is the creation of whatever it is that you truly wanna create for your new life. And so, as we go into today, back into today, I invite you to do the ultimate surrender, to let go of everything you've ever known to imagine what it would be like.

(15:55):

If you handed your life over to your higher self, if you let go and didn't give a fuck anymore and let go of keeping up with the Jones, trying to do the right thing, no longer being needed by people, by your family, by anything, where do you wanna create the authentic aspect of who you are to live and create the new world, your new world of what you wanna create for yourself. And you get to say what that is. And so I simply know this in this, knowing that no matter what you're going through the world is working for you and not against you. Let go swirl around in the unknown. You cannot cling onto anything right now. And this is what the universe is trying to do for you so that you can recognize you're none of this stuff out there that in that swirling around, you get to close your eyes and get centered in that silence and that piece and that knowingness and that truth. You get to get tapped into that. That always is totally grounded in the truth of who you are. And in that you get to say and create your new world, okay? Have a beautiful day. And may you live the truth.
