No BS Ways to Challenge Your Own Belief Systems – Paul Chek with Dave Asprey – #726

“A belief system can be as dangerous as it is helpful. It's like a double-edged sword.”

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my candid conversation with Paul Chek continues into the metaphysical, states of consciousness and why so many of us are in fight-or-flight mode.

Note to Listeners: This is the second of a two-part show and focuses on the metaphysical drivers of our lives. Part 1 focused on physical health: DON’T BS YOURSELF; DO THE FOUR BASICS OF HOLISTIC HEALTH – PAUL CHEK WITH DAVE ASPREY – #725.

“Our biochemistry is changing constantly to enhance our ability to survive and no belief system is nearly as dynamic as the truth of our own bodies,” Paul says.

The truth of our bodies is that we’re under a tremendous amount of stresssome that’s within our control, some that’s not. This makes us reactive and takes us to lower levels of consciousness.

For more than 30 years, Paul’s trained, guided and helped people level up their physical, mental and spiritual health. He’s an expert in the fields of corrective and high-performance exercise kinesiology, stress management and holistic wellness.

What he’s seeing right now is a tipping point.

“So what’s happening in my observation,” Paul says, “is that the world populace due to the destruction of the environment, due to the chemicals in the environment, due to the electromagnetic pollution, due to overstimulation, due to the lack of sleep, due to the manipulation of people’s biochemistry by medical drug use, … we’re going lower and lower into our levels of consciousness, which is putting us more and more in a fight or flight state, which is making us more and more reactive. Therefore, we’re not able to transcend to the higher levels of consciousness that are needed.”

We can see what’s happening in the world and can’t escape it.

But everyone in the world has a chance to participate and we have to do it, Paul says. “Every human being has genius within it. We can use the same technology and the same level of brain power that got us in trouble to reverse it.”

Paul is a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist and Clinical Exercise Specialist (ACE) who’s studied with experts worldwide from many disciplines. He’s also an inventor who’d accrued three US patents for posture calibrating, hydrotherapy and equipment inventions, and has designed several pieces of functional exercise equipment. He’s released more than 50 videos, half a dozen books, several e-books, and nearly 20 advanced level home-study educational lessons.
