📺 IWFGG | Why Are You Burned Out?





00:00:01.319 --> 00:00:08.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Hello Hello hello, and welcome to Inner Work for Greater Good, my name is Emily Eldredge, as always, that i'm here to share.


00:00:09.360 --> 00:00:21.330

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The inner work that is absolutely necessary for us to make the biggest possible difference in the world, and so this is your first time watching my show Hello Hello i'm so happy to have you and I hope that I can provide you.


00:00:21.630 --> 00:00:29.340

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: With great information to learn today that will help you, with your journey i'm so let me just tell you right now i'm actually in tucson Arizona.


00:00:29.910 --> 00:00:37.380

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: moving out of a House that and my husband and I have been in for seven years, so if you were to see this setup right now you'd see i've got boxes.


00:00:37.890 --> 00:00:48.420

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: On top of this mattress you can even see we've been taking stuff off of the wall so sorry for the very bare and shaky there it is like every time I move this.


00:00:50.160 --> 00:00:58.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: shaky situation right now, but I do the best I can give him that i'm traveling and don't have a whole lot to work with right now but.


00:00:58.410 --> 00:01:07.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm still here and we're still talking, and this is going to be great today the conversation I want to have is about burn out okay so.


00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:22.410

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Let me just start with a definition of burnout because I think a lot of people experienced burnout I have definitely experienced burnout in my life, and it can show up in work, it can show up in relationships.


00:01:23.490 --> 00:01:27.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I think it's really important to also learn to identify when we're feeling burned out.


00:01:27.720 --> 00:01:37.500

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then, what i'm really going to talk about today is burnout from a ChangeLight perspective, if you will, from an x powers and emPowers perspective.


00:01:37.740 --> 00:01:44.310

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I spent a lot of videos prior to episodes prior to this one talking about the X files and the empire's the three types of each.


00:01:44.670 --> 00:01:58.200

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And i'll give you a quick rundown as I talked about burnout when it comes to them in this episode, but especially if you haven't seen those episodes definitely go back and learn all about the three types of exPowers aka your inner struggles.


00:01:58.590 --> 00:02:10.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And the three types of emPowers aka the parts of you, whose job it is to support you and living your Truth so let's start first with the definition of burn out, so this is just a quick definition that I saw.


00:02:11.280 --> 00:02:17.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That basically coined it was first coined by the psychologist Herbert furstenberg or in the 70s.


00:02:18.330 --> 00:02:30.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it's described as a severe stress condition that leads to severe physical, mental and emotional exhaustion so it's worse than just feeling momentarily fatigued.


00:02:30.930 --> 00:02:38.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and actually makes it really challenging to cope with stress and to handle day to day responsibilities, whether they be professional or personal or both.


00:02:39.540 --> 00:02:49.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: um it really feels when you're burned out it feels like you have nothing left it's like you, are empty on the inside empty of energy energetically empty like you just have nothing left to give.


00:02:50.070 --> 00:02:56.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that you make dread getting out of bed each morning, you might feel very pessimistic and feel hopeless.


00:02:58.200 --> 00:03:17.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: There are also other signs basically of burnout so just i'll just list a few of them exhaustion isolation escape fantasies irritability frequent illness i've also seen written like cynicism feeling very cynical about the world.


00:03:18.450 --> 00:03:22.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And maybe your ability to affect change within it.


00:03:23.700 --> 00:03:30.930

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So these are all things I think also irritability as a good one, I think, when we think of burnout we think of like oh i'm just really, really tired or exhausted, or I.


00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:41.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: burned out but also it can manifest as being very irritable and annoyed and impatient and overwhelmed and very, very stressed in that way, so.


00:03:41.610 --> 00:03:51.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Think about those symptoms and just notice if that's something that you're dealing with right now, or that you've ever dealt with and maybe didn't maybe maybe you didn't recognize it as burnout.


00:03:51.900 --> 00:04:01.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I think that really recognizing what we're struggling with makes a big difference in our ability to handle it and, of course, it requires some amount of self awareness.


00:04:01.770 --> 00:04:09.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And really stopping and pausing and going okay what's going on with me right now, or maybe even listening Maybe other people are the ones who are saying you know I think you.


00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:20.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: might be burned out, you know I think you seem really, really tired, so if it's also really important to listen to other people's cues and feedback about what they're seeing within us and.


00:04:20.700 --> 00:04:27.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, take it as information doesn't mean you have to believe everything obviously that everybody else tells you about what they're seeing in you.


00:04:27.570 --> 00:04:36.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But it really is about just take it as information and say, well, what if this could be true, you know what if I really am experiencing some burnout that I don't realize is there.


00:04:36.720 --> 00:04:46.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I want to talk about burnout I mean you know if you go in line and you see here's what burnout is or you know here's how you deal with it, I want to talk about it from.


00:04:47.430 --> 00:04:51.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: A ChangeLight perspective so from the exPowers and emPowers.


00:04:52.350 --> 00:04:59.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: us if you've seen the previous episodes or even if you haven't i'll just go through real quick, the three types of exPowers.


00:04:59.550 --> 00:05:12.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Are your inner Defender into the inner Defenders I should say in our Controllers in inner Wounded, so the Defenders are basically, the ones who want to try to block any sort of pain from coming in.


00:05:13.080 --> 00:05:22.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: They are very much like they show up as the, the bodyguards, are they you know don't come near or like a wall and inner wall that you have that's trying to keep people out or keep.


00:05:23.640 --> 00:05:27.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Any kind of triggers or threats or anything out and you potential pain out.


00:05:28.770 --> 00:05:36.540

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Those are Defenders and those obviously developed inside of US usually because we have been violated, because we haven't had proper boundaries.


00:05:36.810 --> 00:05:47.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or, because we feel very inferior and as a result of feeling inferior, we can have a Defender that tries to puff us up and make us feel or appear superior.


00:05:47.730 --> 00:05:56.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: behave in a superior way to try to protect us from those really inferior feelings Defenders don't like us to feel weak they like us to feel strong So those are the.


00:05:56.910 --> 00:06:02.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Those are the Defender type and there's also the Controller type of exPower and that's the part that's.


00:06:02.670 --> 00:06:12.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Very it's trying to control us or another part of us, and so classic one is the inner critic so it's telling you you never do never doing enough, you should be doing more or you're.


00:06:12.750 --> 00:06:21.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're a failure you've never amounted to anything so often they use Controllers use criticism to control us to either keep us down or push us forward.


00:06:22.920 --> 00:06:25.770

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: push us too hard, often we'll talk about that with burnout.


00:06:27.570 --> 00:06:35.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or you know they can undermine our confidence and ultimately their intentions are good, with the Defenders to the intentions are good they're just trying to protect us.


00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:44.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: From pain, whatever way they know, but unfortunately what happens is they end up causing us pain, so those tend to be Controllers inner critic as a classic one.


00:06:45.420 --> 00:06:54.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then finally Wounded, so this is the type that, basically, whereas the Controllers and Defenders are trying to protect us from pain, whatever way they know.


00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:59.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or mitigate pain, whatever way they know Wounded, to the ones who are carrying the pain.


00:06:59.940 --> 00:07:07.770

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: winds are basically that Wounded inner child usually that's classic One the one that's hurting the one that's crying the one is throwing a temper tantrum.


00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:11.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The one that makes us feel sad or depressed or.


00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:23.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Although actually depression can often be a Controller issue as well, so let me just clarify that, but the wound is for the ones that are carrying that pain that resulted from having been hurt in the past.


00:07:24.360 --> 00:07:37.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So you've got those and so basically usually the Defender is often trying to protect the Wounded or trying to protect Wounded Defenders are often seen in that when we do the Drawing Out Process when I work with my clients are we figure out, what are the struggles going on inside.


00:07:37.980 --> 00:07:40.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Usually Defenders trying to protect a Wounded, or very often.


00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:47.850

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or a Controller is actually acting on a Wounded trying to get it to stop being in so much pain or stop crying.


00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:59.310

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And oftentimes a classic dynamic, there is the whole critical parent Wounded child dynamic that you know they talk about in therapy and everything so that's that inner critic that can often.


00:07:59.760 --> 00:08:09.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's playing out often what we learned in childhood if we had a very critical parent and it's hurting that child inside of us just like we were hurting as children.


00:08:09.630 --> 00:08:27.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So those are the three types now each one of these, this is, I find so interesting is that each one of these can directly relate to why we might be experiencing burnout in our jobs in our lives in our relationships.


00:08:28.320 --> 00:08:37.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that sense of irritability exhaustion I have nothing left to give feeling very cynical feeling very isolated.


00:08:37.980 --> 00:08:47.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So let's look first at Defenders how our Defenders are could be they could they be related to why, if you're feeling burnt out or when you felt burned out.


00:08:47.310 --> 00:08:55.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or any event that you do feel burned out just remember this, how our Defenders related to this experience of burnout.


00:08:55.620 --> 00:09:03.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: here's the thing about Defenders again they're trying to protect us from paying whatever way they know in the way Defenders do they try to defend us from the pain.


00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:10.740

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: They try to block the pain, or they set up walls inside of us, they are walls inside of us that are trying to protect us.


00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:18.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: here's what also happens that when I mentioned this, when I talked about Defenders is that as much as their intentions are good.


00:09:18.960 --> 00:09:28.260

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And sometimes their efforts really do protect us so, for example, if we were criticized a lot as a child and then someone comes along and criticizes us.


00:09:28.710 --> 00:09:37.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: We might immediately have a Defender that says or not Okay, and so that Defender could actually be genuinely protecting us in a way.


00:09:37.740 --> 00:09:47.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: However, what Defenders one of the sort of side effects of Defenders can be that they also keep us from letting others in.


00:09:47.430 --> 00:09:54.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So when I talk about inner wall, or if you've got a bodyguard that gets very reactive anytime there's any sense.


00:09:54.450 --> 00:10:00.420

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Of maybe somebody's going to say something need or it can also project into.


00:10:00.750 --> 00:10:09.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: This situation its own fears the Defender can and cause us to think things are happening in that scenario that aren't actually happening.


00:10:09.600 --> 00:10:21.030

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But ultimately what can often happen is that if we're so well defended if we have all these walls are these you know this barbed wire around us, or we have these.


00:10:21.570 --> 00:10:26.640

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know bodyguards that are trying to keep others out so that we can stay safe within.


00:10:27.090 --> 00:10:37.620

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: What happens well we're not been letting other skin there's no space for connection, and not only that within don't really allow others to help us.


00:10:37.980 --> 00:10:47.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So, think about that whatever situation you're in whether it's you're raising children or you have a you know, a leadership position in your work.


00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:54.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're trying to effect some kind of change in the world and fulfill some kind of mission if you're trying to do all of that alone.


00:10:55.020 --> 00:10:58.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you're not trusting others to let them help you.


00:10:59.400 --> 00:11:06.990

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That can very well be because you've got a very well developed Defender inside of you, and that Defender is trying to protect you from feeling hurt.


00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:17.310

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or disappointed by others that's another one that Defenders can often try to protect us from, because if we have been disappointed if others have let us down.


00:11:17.610 --> 00:11:20.850

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Well then, you might have a Defender who's like you know what then forget it.


00:11:21.300 --> 00:11:32.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm going to do it all myself or we might inform that belief, and that can often be fueled by an inner Defender or Defenders nevermind then i'm just going to do it myself, because I can't trust anyone else to show up for me.


00:11:33.150 --> 00:11:41.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I can't trust, others are going to do a good enough job there's a hyper independence is the term I think I actually mentioned this in a previous.


00:11:42.540 --> 00:11:52.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: episode hyper and independence that's like a form of hyper independence that can actually be born of trauma because of the trauma of having felt very alone.


00:11:52.920 --> 00:11:56.640

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and isolated as children that there was no one there to protect us.


00:11:56.940 --> 00:12:09.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But again, the Defenders that then form in response to those situations can often be the very parts of us that actually keep us from receiving the support and help that we need, and that is available to us.


00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:21.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: From you know that there are people, we can trust that because we've been so corrupt we aren't actually aware or fully allowing ourselves to trust those people so what's that a recipe for.


00:12:21.990 --> 00:12:34.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: burnout right think about it, if you're trying to do everything on your own and you're not dropping your defenses enough or you're not really relaxing enough to realize that oh this person's actually trying to help me.


00:12:35.340 --> 00:12:45.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And, and then articulating what you need and unhealthy way, etc, I mean it's kind of it's it's it's the Multi level process right to allow to lead trust other people and to.


00:12:46.530 --> 00:12:52.620

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: delegate like trust that that when we delegate to them that they will do the task the task properly.


00:12:53.040 --> 00:13:00.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The point is that Defenders can actually stop that from happening because it's trying they're trying to protect us from disappointment from pain.


00:13:00.930 --> 00:13:10.470

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: All kinds of things, so if you're experiencing burnout or have experienced burnout consider that Defender might be underneath that then it could be preventing you.


00:13:10.860 --> 00:13:18.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: By the way, I said i'm going to talk about extra hours first, but then i'm going to just briefly touch on how, how can your emPowers actually support you and coming out of burnout.


00:13:19.980 --> 00:13:32.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So Controller, so what of Controllers have to do with burnout I referenced this a minute ago think about that, if you are feeling so driven and so, like, I have to get this done.


00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:43.020

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or, if you are like driven to succeed, or you feel like it's never enough whatever you do you're a perfectionist you're.


00:13:43.980 --> 00:13:52.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're feeling pushed or pressured or you've got some kind of sense of I never enough whatever I do is never enough.


00:13:53.340 --> 00:13:58.530

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm not good enough at this etc, etc, those kinds of feelings.


00:13:58.920 --> 00:14:11.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That can lead that can lead to burnout can be caused by Controllers and inner Controller that's telling you that you're never doing enough for making you feel like you're never enough are never good enough.


00:14:11.940 --> 00:14:21.810

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That pushing you beyond the point of exhaustion that makes you feel like you have to keep going even when your body is like I can't I can't.


00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:35.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That can be because of an inner Controller or Controllers that are controlling you and pushing you beyond a healthy boundary beyond a healthy threshold.


00:14:35.400 --> 00:14:43.620

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that's something to remember about Controllers Controllers can often be at the core also of burnout because of that, because they don't.


00:14:43.860 --> 00:14:53.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Think about what's healthy for you they're just trying to overcompensate maybe for an insecurity that you have they're trying to.


00:14:54.360 --> 00:15:06.840

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, trying to help you feel more accomplished, but often with Controllers they're really never satisfied and so that's why it feels like, no matter what you do, or how much you do it's never enough it's never good enough.


00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:19.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or even by undermining your confidence in yourself that can also cause burnout as well, because it feels like you're not good enough to be doing whatever you're doing.


00:15:20.400 --> 00:15:23.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're feeling overwhelmed you're feeling exhausted you're feeling.


00:15:24.420 --> 00:15:34.980

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know drained because oftentimes, and this is another thing just generally with exPowers they can be very draining if you're constantly battling with these parts of you are having to contend.


00:15:35.250 --> 00:15:43.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: With these messages that you've got going on inside that's exhausting in and of itself was working with a client just a couple weeks ago, who was talking about being.


00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:51.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: physically exhausted and I knew well she'd been talking about the emotions that she was struggling with and I said, well, of course, you're exhausted.


00:15:51.360 --> 00:16:00.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because, even though we think of emotions, as this sort of like in morpheus sort of non physical thing right because an emotion is like a feeling that we have.


00:16:00.720 --> 00:16:14.250

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Is they are physically exhausting and draining too so think about it that way, as well, when you're struggling with these parts, while you're just trying to go about your daily daily duties that's going to wear on you as well.


00:16:15.090 --> 00:16:26.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And finally Wounded, so what a wound is have to do with burnout Wounded, as I said, carrying that emotion can be physically draining.


00:16:27.330 --> 00:16:35.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm feeling those feelings can be very physically draining when you've got that dynamic of let's say the critical Baron that's acting on the Wounded.


00:16:35.730 --> 00:16:44.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And the Wounded is feeling like it's never enough that can make you feel like you're never enough and so that's where that that kind of dynamic can come in.


00:16:44.460 --> 00:16:53.760

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: burnout also is it talked about as a sense of hopelessness or despair or cynicism and Wounded often have that attitude.


00:16:54.060 --> 00:17:01.830

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that's a lot of boats can feel like there's nothing I can do, they tend to have a powerless stance, they think of themselves as powerless.


00:17:02.310 --> 00:17:09.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so, if you're Wounded, can also be the things that are drawing you down that are being triggered by.


00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:15.090

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know if you've been trying trying and trying and working so hard and feeling like you're not really getting anywhere.


00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:23.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: which could be because maybe you're trying too hard, in one way that really isn't effective and you need to try a different way, or, as I talked about with Defenders.


00:17:23.700 --> 00:17:33.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Maybe you're trying too hard on your own and you're not allowing others to support you, the point is that Wounded can get triggered and it can feel very much see.


00:17:33.750 --> 00:17:51.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: there's no point and feel very cynical and feel very down and feel very lacking in any energy and feel very powerless to change and so that again that's one of those symptoms of burnout and so Wounded can be at the core of burnout as well.


00:17:52.230 --> 00:18:02.220

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So here's the cool thing, though, that, with all of these exPowers playing a role in burnout guess what they're.


00:18:02.700 --> 00:18:10.740

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: they're more empowered counterparts those emPowers can play a role in healing that burnout.


00:18:11.460 --> 00:18:16.980

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: pieces i've talked about a lot, which you want to do is you first really want to address the Expos and heal those.


00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:28.410

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: draw them out and honor them because no amount of honoring and bringing forward your emPowers can really make up entirely for the exPowers that are in there, because otherwise you're just going to be dealing with.


00:18:28.770 --> 00:18:35.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: This sort of binary you know power struggle within you where you've got all these emPowers are saying all this wonderful stuff and they support you and love you.


00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:45.840

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But you still got the wound is that are telling you that no there's no point or you've got the Controller that says, well, you did you know you're a failure, you suck and you screwed up or you've got the Defender who's like.


00:18:46.500 --> 00:18:50.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: We are not letting anybody in here, you know we can't get vulnerable.


00:18:51.660 --> 00:19:03.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and ask for help, so that's why I always always advocate this is not talking about just doing one or the other you've got to do both in my experience he's got to face the darkness.


00:19:03.960 --> 00:19:12.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And honor the light and, as you face that darkness you actually bring that darkness to light so it's all this wonderful perfect you're fabulous you know.


00:19:12.960 --> 00:19:22.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, dark transforming into light system and process but anyway, the point is, you want to first draw out those you want to draw out those extra hours at the very least, draw them out.


00:19:23.280 --> 00:19:35.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I talked about this in my course and my Community community that ChangeLight that world, you can learn all that good stuff there I teach the techniques, but the point is, you want to draw those out because then you're going to help a lot like.


00:19:36.900 --> 00:19:41.220

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's like a release valve you're just by drawing it out you're like honoring it you're letting it come out.


00:19:41.490 --> 00:19:51.570

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're putting it out on paper, as opposed to it just being all inside of you so that's going to help a lot, but then the other side of that is with those and powers, as I mentioned so.


00:19:52.530 --> 00:19:56.640

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Excuse me, the three emPower types are your inner Sovereign.


00:19:57.300 --> 00:20:04.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Your Impresario and you're Free Spirit, so your Sovereign if you seen previous episodes you know that your Sovereign and your Defender.


00:20:04.860 --> 00:20:16.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or correlate with one another, your Defender energies are basically distortions of your Sovereign energy and your Sovereign your inner Sovereign is the part of you that knows your Truth.


00:20:17.340 --> 00:20:28.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That that knows your boundaries what's right and wrong for you, independently of anyone else it's connected with your spiritual Center it's connected with your sense of values and morals and ethics.


00:20:28.920 --> 00:20:33.870

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It has a sense of right and wrong both what's right and wrong for you, but also what's right and wrong in general.


00:20:34.800 --> 00:20:47.280

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so, your Sovereign is the one that you can call on if you're feeling burned out, it could be the actually probably really is usually is because you are giving away your power.


00:20:47.730 --> 00:20:54.810

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To others, you are not honoring your boundaries your Sovereignty your needs.


00:20:54.990 --> 00:21:06.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that's how we get burned out right and there's described the burnout is it's basically where it's like you feel like you have nothing left to give when you're drained you're empty on the inside energetically it's gone everywhere else.


00:21:06.690 --> 00:21:17.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So your Sovereign can be the one that you call on to say Okay, how can I live according to what feels good and right for me.


00:21:17.250 --> 00:21:23.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: so that I can basically like boring that energy back and actually, this is a cool exercise that you can do too.


00:21:23.790 --> 00:21:28.320

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Is you just almost imagine, especially if you feel like you're like pulled in all these different directions.


00:21:28.590 --> 00:21:35.520

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you've got all these different responsibilities or people relying on you, or you think that you're responsible for things that maybe you're not entirely.


00:21:35.730 --> 00:21:43.890

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Maybe it's really not your responsibility, you know you're just taking it on as your responsibility, you can actually energetically like bring those chords back.


00:21:44.220 --> 00:21:54.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and actually i've done a energy healing technique called product healing and we we actually cut cords we actually energetically cut the unnecessary ports.


00:21:54.420 --> 00:22:04.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So unnecessary is a good word, because you don't want to cut the cords between like you know people who really you love and you care about and you want to maintain that it's about the unnecessary ports.


00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:13.440

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the point is it's all about bringing that energy in and your Sovereign can also help you recognize where you are allowing your boundaries, to be violated.


00:22:13.680 --> 00:22:21.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Where are you are giving away your energy when you really should be honoring yourself and trusting yourself in your own Truth.


00:22:21.780 --> 00:22:35.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and allowing the universe, to support you in what you're doing and and who you are so that's where the Sovereign can come into into place into play here, and to help you overcome burnout help you heal from burnout.


00:22:35.520 --> 00:22:42.240

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The other one, of course, the next second one is your inner Impresario So how can your Impresario support you in this.


00:22:42.600 --> 00:22:51.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: One of the great things about your Impresario I was kind of laughed because you're Impresario was basically like your tasks, the one who's like your taskmaster who knows what you need to do.


00:22:51.960 --> 00:22:57.990

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's a part of you that likes to do and get things done it's very much about you know practicality and survival.


00:22:58.230 --> 00:23:04.530

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That is good at lists and organizing very left brained very logical practical reasonable all that kind of stuff.


00:23:04.800 --> 00:23:15.300

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And one of the techniques I teach when it comes to honoring your emPowers is I always kind of giggle about the Impresario because the one of the questions that you can ask your emPowers to honor them.


00:23:15.900 --> 00:23:25.890

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Is what's one small thing I can do today, that would feel good for you so that's what one of those you know simple techniques for really bringing forward your emPowers every morning.


00:23:26.160 --> 00:23:30.840

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and allowing them to support you well, I always giggle because then for sorrows it's like.


00:23:31.650 --> 00:23:39.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Your Impresario will sometimes give you more than one thing it'll be like to ask, let me tell you, and it'll be like okay do this this this this this this this this this.


00:23:40.470 --> 00:23:48.870

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But then what you can do i'm getting somewhere, I promise so, then what you can do, though, with, that is, I will say Okay, if your infrastructure gives you a whole list of things to do.


00:23:49.380 --> 00:24:02.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You then say Okay, we need to prioritize Impresario what's the one most important thing I can do, or what's The one thing I can do today on this list that will give you the greatest satisfaction.


00:24:02.340 --> 00:24:10.230

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That will make you feel the best now obviously what honors our emPowers honors us as well, what feels good for empires feels good for us as well.


00:24:10.530 --> 00:24:15.540

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the point is what happens is that emphasize goes up and immediately it knows what's The one thing.


00:24:16.020 --> 00:24:21.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That right there and it knows so you're calling on your infrastructure to to prioritize.


00:24:21.960 --> 00:24:29.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: This is all by way of saying that when it comes to burn out oftentimes, as I mentioned, we can often think that we.


00:24:29.400 --> 00:24:38.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Are you know indispensable in all these different ways or hyper have to be hyper productive, we have to get all this done and we are responsible for all these things.


00:24:38.880 --> 00:24:47.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: When, in reality, we might be doing too much busy work, we might actually be working harder and doing more than is really necessary.


00:24:47.940 --> 00:24:54.720

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that's where calling on your Impresario can really help you room and focusing on what's really important.


00:24:55.350 --> 00:25:11.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Never mind all the other noise, never mind all the overthinking and all the stuff that we think we need to do what's what has priority and so calling on your info sorry Oh, to give you tell you what's, the most important thing can help all that but just kind of calm down.


00:25:12.930 --> 00:25:23.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So it's not this oh my God, I have so much to do and i'm so burned out i'm so exhausted know just what's one thing just one thing I can do that would help give me a sense of accomplishment.


00:25:23.640 --> 00:25:32.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then you just keep doing that one thing, so that even though you're exhausted and you're burned out and you're overwhelmed you're helping to.


00:25:32.430 --> 00:25:37.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're helping to clarify and calm your inner system to realize that.


00:25:38.010 --> 00:25:48.090

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: yeah you may feel overwhelmed but really there's not actually as much to be made to do you think you need to do or, certainly not in this moment, right now, so that can also help alleviate that burnout.


00:25:48.420 --> 00:25:56.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: is to get allow your Impresario to help you be more focused and clear on what's really important.


00:25:57.150 --> 00:26:13.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Finally, Free Spirit I often tell people that really one of the biggest things I found the most common issue, I found when it comes to burnout and i've worked with clients who have been burned out.


00:26:14.460 --> 00:26:19.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And even you know how to you know they were they were like having to let go of employees are they were having to.


00:26:20.100 --> 00:26:30.210

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, really having to make a lot of big changes or felt like they really had to make a lot of big changes because of the fact that they didn't have the energy to keep going at the pace at which they were going.


00:26:30.600 --> 00:26:41.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so what I always do is I always say we need to start by honoring those emPowers and then we can also get to the root of like what are the exPowers that have been driving them to this point that have gotten them to this point.


00:26:41.460 --> 00:26:49.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But one of the quickest things that can do is to start to honor those emPowers and the biggest emPower, I found that is.


00:26:50.220 --> 00:26:55.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That can bring you out of burnout that much faster is your Free Spirit.


00:26:56.250 --> 00:27:08.880

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So you're Free Spirit to summarize about the emPowers the Free Spirit is the part of you that's very joyful and fun loving it doesn't care about responsibilities it's carefree and loves to play it loves to be funny it loves to be silly.


00:27:09.330 --> 00:27:24.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And usually the reason why we've gotten burned out or why you may be burned out of her gotten burned out is because you've allowed that Controller and i'm over energized Impresario energy, if you will, to run the show.


00:27:24.870 --> 00:27:35.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To take charge and take control, but what often happens is if it's just focused on doing is that, then things like, then the Free Spirit gets left behind.


00:27:35.760 --> 00:27:48.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And the Free Spirit gets shafted because it's often seen as not important for survival right the Free Spirit doesn't think in terms of what do I need practically what do we need to survive know the Free Spirits like let's just have fun, just like a kid.


00:27:48.900 --> 00:27:55.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know kids don't necessarily like schedules or responsibilities they don't want to do their chores they just want to play in the playground.


00:27:55.530 --> 00:28:04.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Well that's that inner Free Spirit that we've got and we all have a little bit different you know my might might be more about players might be more about humor it all just depends.


00:28:04.680 --> 00:28:10.890

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But bringing forward your Free Spirit calling it forward and honoring it and I promise you it's there.


00:28:11.280 --> 00:28:23.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It may be buried in darkness, or there may be parts of it that are that are that have fallen into darkness, but I promise you you've got that Free Spirit that sweet wonderful innocent little child and child parts of you there there.


00:28:23.970 --> 00:28:34.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The point is, when we allow them to come forward and shine and we listened to them and start to you know your Free Spirit and start to honor its guidance for you.


00:28:34.800 --> 00:28:47.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That can make the biggest difference in filling you with light so even when you think about the term burnout right burn out the candle is out the light is out.


00:28:48.060 --> 00:29:01.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's black it's dark it's carbonated all that kind of stuff so there's darkness, but you bring that Free Spirit you're bringing that joyful carefree fun loving pleasure seeking light.


00:29:01.980 --> 00:29:15.030

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: forward to fill that darkness to reignite you to light you up and trigger your passions to come forward here's the reason and i've said this, I believe i've said this before.


00:29:15.690 --> 00:29:32.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Again, people think that the Free Spirit is not important for survival, that is garbage that is bs, it is vital if you didn't need your Free Spirit you wouldn't have a Free Spirit we all have in our Free Spirits are Free Spirits are vital.


00:29:33.150 --> 00:29:39.990

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: For us to feel alive and, if anything that burnout represents you don't feel like.


00:29:41.010 --> 00:29:49.020

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You don't feel like you're thriving you feel exhausted and irritated and overwhelmed and done with life.


00:29:49.950 --> 00:30:05.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The Free Spirit is the part of you that can reignite that and bring that back into you and honoring what it does for you, even if your practical mind your Impresario thanks well that's not practical No, it is whatever you're in Free Spirit is telling you to do trust it.


00:30:07.290 --> 00:30:22.530

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You can even ask her Free Spirit, how can you help me feel more alive, what can I do, that would feel so good for you and would feel so good for me to, and whatever that Free Spirit tells you do it because I promise what it'll do is it's going to fill you with more energy.


00:30:23.580 --> 00:30:34.380

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To then move forward with whatever tasks your Impresario saying yeah We really need to focus on this or your your Sovereign is saying yeah let's do what feels right for you, we really need to set our boundaries and really honor.


00:30:34.770 --> 00:30:48.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: who we are and you know do and really respect ourselves so that we can make a bigger difference in the world and fulfill our mission, the Free Spirit can point forward more that fuel.


00:30:48.960 --> 00:30:56.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That will fuel that engine of your life, you know and help the show get on the road again and how you feel so good doing okay.


00:30:57.480 --> 00:31:09.330

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So there you go burnout as it pertains to the ChangeLight system your exPowers and your emPowers and how you can start to heal from burnout.

00:31:19.080 --> 00:31:31.440

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then, also the emPowers and how they can be brought forward more to help you heal from that burnout and really feel alive and happy and joyful and energized again.
