I am your host, your trusted voice of transformation. Clifton's Pettijohn join me as I engage in ingenious conversations with top creators from around the world who have embraced their dimensions of intelligence within their professional, personal and spiritual paths of transformation. What's up everybody Welcome to the Multidimensional Intelligence podcast where we have conversations that help navigate individuals to tap it into the dimensions of their intelligence and once they tap into it they can begin to exercise that intelligence and every day life.

That's right, We've tapped into our intelligence and can I be honest with you, I'm still tapping into dimensions of my intelligence the more and more. I opened myself up to me, I'm opening myself up to the dimensions that reside inside of me that have been inside of me screaming out cliff. I want to be free. I'm learning how to free those dimensions so that I can begin to be everything that I was created to be, I could tap into that best self. Listen, let's do our breathing exercises. Take a deep breath in, hold it, breathe out one more time. Take a deep breath in sit with it, breathe out. How does that make you feel? Does it make you feel lighter? Does it make you feel free? Doesn't make you feel as if you can't really explain how you feel because it's been a minute since you felt like that. I understand what we've done is we went to your past, we got that energy that you keep devoting to circumstances and situations that happen in your past.

Success and failures that happened in your past. The things that you use to measure against what's going on now for you to decide if what you are doing right now is successful. We're going to get that energy then we're gonna go to the possibility of the future. Why do we have to go to the possibility of the future? Because some of us get stuck in the possibility of the future that we never take time to be present enough to create that future. All right, so, we're gonna pull that here. We're gonna merge it with a little bit of energy that we were devoting to the present. All right. So now all of that energy is here in the present. We merged those three energies and we've created synergy which is ourself, which is again the multi dimensions of who we are and because we've tapped into that because we're present, because we're not worried about anything else. Because we're alert, we're able to take advantage of tools, techniques, strategies, and reminders.

They're gonna help us even be more aware of who we are. You know what that is guys that is your best self, your best self is not measured against any version of yourself version of yourself or anybody else. When you tap into your best self, you realize that you have everything that you need at your disposal right now. You have everything that you need in order to be successful. You have everything that you need in order to be effective in life right now. So my name is Captain Penny john, I am your trusted voice of clarity and transformation. I teach creators how to transform their lives through embracing the entirety of their best self. Now, we just talked about best self. I want to go a little bit deeper with that best self because some of you are struggling with decisions that you made in your past. I was talking about being locked in your past. I've been there before. Trust me, understand. I have made some decisions that I struggled with for a while until I came to the reality of not that they were lessons learned and I know we have learned the lesson No, no, no, no.

What I understood was they were benchmarks throughout this journey. They were benchmarks throughout me progressing in life. And if I were to go back and change one decision and you know, we always asked that if we could change one thing in life, what would it be? Well, there's a reality. If we go back and alter one thing, if we go back and change one thing, then we can't show up today as we show up because it took everything that you endured. It took everything that you experience, it took everything that you are part of to bring you to this very present moment. And I'm gonna tell you one thing, I'm glad you're here with me. I'm glad that everything that happened to you happened to hear me out. I'm very sensitive about certain things that you know, probably sting and hurt and didn't feel good. Didn't sound good. Didn't look good. Did not put us in a position of favor our position that we love that we would have, that didn't put us in the position that we'd rather have been put in.

But I'm telling you it was everything that happened to you that brought you to where you are today. So I'm excited to get to meet you today. And I know I might can't see your face, but I can communicate with you in the comments. I can feel your energy. I can feel your vibe. I can feel all of that.

Who you are at your core. I want to remind you of that. Why? Because that is your best self, That is your best self. All right. So let's get to what we're going to talk about on today. I have been in a time or a season or a space, whatever language you put to it of transition in my life. Um, and I felt, I feel as if I'm always in transitions at time, at times, one of the things I have learned this year is that I learned how not to fight transition as much as I used to fight it. I used to view transition as a punishment. I used to view transition as a, uh, well, this is just how my life is gonna be. So, you know, it's never gonna change Now. I look at transition as an opportunity I really do. I view it as an opportunity because I know that if I'm in transitional moments, there are things that I need to release out of me and some things I need to release externally that are no longer either my responsibility, uh, they no longer serve me or it's just that time has expired.

I have to release those things and what I'm learning more and more is, or what I'm embracing more and more is the reality that the more that I'm willing to let go, the more opportunities that I begin to face in life. So the other night I was talking to my identity strategist, he's also, uh, spiritual advisor, my pastor, uh, Michael Weston. Check him out. You're super normal www. Dot You're super normal dot com. Okay. So we were talking and I had taken a cohort in the summer and right now that cohort is available, I encourage you. As I said, check out www dot You're super normal. Sign up for this cohort. Okay. Um, but this cohort really begin to deal with, be in the sense of my identity and creating from my identity or are structuring my business, uh, from my identity. And I realized that I really hadn't structured my business from my identity.

I really hadn't taken the time to structure my business from the identity. I had a lot of allowed a lot of outside sources, outside sources to influence how I navigated as a businessman. As a matter of fact, I realized that I hadn't navigated much as a businessman. I had navigated much as a businessman to be honest with you. Uh, there was a struggle there with me in relationship to business because all I've known my entire life is education. I know I'm a great teacher. I know I worked well with kids. I know I worked well with families. I know all of those things. You know, I know that I am a trusted voice one day that can communicate and articulate a message in a manner to make you grab hold of it and see, you know that they're not just hope, but see the possibilities that have always been there before your face? I understood all of that.

But even in the midst of all of that, I did not embrace me as a businessman. And the reason why I didn't embrace me as a businessman because I didn't like it. So therefore I never really took time to study it. So because I never took time to study it, it was a part of me didn't fit that felt like I couldn't be successful at it. I'm gonna be honest with you. If somebody asked me asked if somebody were to ask me cliff was your dream job? My dream job would be to sit behind here on a microphone and talk to you or sit behind this microphone and have a conversation with guests or stand on the stage and share with with crowds full of people, you know about embracing their best self. That would be my ideal job, that's all I would want to do. I want to travel the world and interview people from different cultures just to find out their mindset on purpose, to find out their mindset on transformation, To find out their mindset on on identity and on their best self.

That's what I would love to do. And that's great. It sounds beautiful and people have encouraged me to do it, but very few people have have came to me and said, okay, but what's the business behind it? What's the business plan behind it? What's the business structure behind it? What does the what is the inner businessman telling you? Very few people addressed me with that. But this cohort with Michael Weston calls me too, begin to deep dig deep within myself in areas that I had blocked off uh, in areas that I put in a closet, not not that area that you're probably thinking, oh baby, I've been out of there. I don't even think I ever was in the closet with that, but that's not what we're talking about on today. All right. But anyway, you know, there were things that I had really suppressed. There were successes I had suppressed. There were uh, certain things that I had a skewed perception of uh, skew viewpoint of or skewed memory of.

There were things that I was still punishing myself from that happened when I was a teenager. So I begin to go on that journey. And as I begin to go on that journey and somebody said, there's nothing to do with business. It has everything to do with business, has everything to do with business. Because one of the questions, uh, it wasn't one of the questions, one of the things he told me was you need to re evaluate how you show up Many people define stagnation as not producing or being at a standstill? Yeah, I get it. However, I would like to add a little weight to the definition and say that I may be producing, I may be moving however, my production and my movements are disrespectful to the purpose that's inside of me, to the greatness that's inside of me if that's going on that stagnation as well and that's okay, guess why? Because I have developed the tool, I wrote a book called from stagnation and transformation and that book was written specifically for individuals that feel stuck that feel lost, that feel like they're just wandering in the wilderness.

They feel like they just need something, it's just missing. It's okay. I want you to hit over to www dot clinton Pettijohn dot com forward slash transformation there. You're gonna find a complimentary portion of the book. That's right. A complimentary portion of the book. I want you to read that portion after that It's gonna ignite such a fire inside of you that you're gonna want to purchase, the your personal copy of from stagnation of transformation. So I want you to do that as well. Why? Because I believe that it will give you a 21 day jump start to fulfilling or re identifying purpose and whatever core area you find yourself stagnant in. So again visit www dot clinton Pettijohn dot com forward slash transformation. Are you enjoying today's episode? I know you are. Are you tired of me interrupting you with ads. I get it.

And for you to take advantage of that, I want you to text ad free to 30 to 20 89,440 again, 302, 20 89 four 40. And I really sat with it and thought about that and it really didn't hit me until later on. How do I show up? And then I realized that I show up based upon what I think that people need from me and somebody said, well that's not a bad way to show up. It is because what if I'm just having a bad day or I'm insecure in that day and what it is that they need to show up?

I'm insecure in that on today. So my perception of what they may need may be off. How about I just show up as me and when I show up as me, I show up as everything that's needed. Why? Because I made sure that I become what I needed first. And that part, it's hard for me. And it wasn't hard because it was hard. It was hard because I told myself it was hard, therefore I never executed it or I never just embraced it because some of the things that we say are hard. It's not that it's hard. It's just a reality of us just sitting in it. And that's really what I want to talk about tonight? And that's another funny story. Because uh some of you heard me talk about me writing a book. Well, if I'm truthful, I'm two books behind. Okay, two books behind. And it's not that I can't write I mean, you read from stagnation of transformation and if you haven't read from stagnation of transformation, I encourage you to go by our website at www dot clinton.

Pettijohn dot com. And I encourage you to push that transformation tab. I believe it is. Or it's a picture of the book. So picture of the book. Now. I forgot to update the website. Picture of the book, click on that. Get you a copy today. All right. But clearly I could write. But for some reason I just did not want to write. And I kept making the excuse that I would write if I had somebody just sit down and I talked to them and they, you know, type it out. But then I had to come to a space with myself after a conversation with my identity strategist again, check him out, Michael Weston www dot You're super normal dot com. Okay. But um, I had a conversation with him and in that conversation I was telling him like, yeah, I just don't want to write this book. He was like, well, why don't you want to write the book? I was like, I don't know. He was like, what are you having? You know, issues with, with being with yourself?

And I was like, no, I don't mind being by myself because in my mind I'm always by myself. So I truly love being by myself. But there's a reality that we have to face that maybe we do love being with ourselves in certain circumstances and in certain situations, but there is a struggle that arises in different circumstances and situations when we're alone. So we keep talking and everything. And I said, well, I don't have any problem when I'm shooting the podcast by myself. I love the shooting the podcast by myself. I love recording videos by myself. I love it. I love it. I love it. And he said, yeah, you do. He said, but it's the silence that bothers you. He said, you need to sit in that silence and sit with yourself. And it was like, boom, just like that the light bulb went off, It was Oprah Aha moment. I had an epiphany and I realized that's exactly what it is. I did not want to sit with myself in the silence and many times I don't like to didn't want to sit with myself in silence is because that's what I'm the most judgmental of myself.

That's what I'm the most critical of myself. That's when my mind starts to go back to certain circumstances and situations. And I begin to tell myself if you hadn't done this. If you hadn't said this, if you hadn't went here, you might not be in this this situation that you're in right now. But what if I'm in the situation that I'm supposed to be in right now? What if and it's not even a wood if I am, I'm here. So while I'm here, I don't need to continue to waste time and reliving and replaying. That's why I, you know, I do that breathing exercises, those breathing exercises before every episode. It's not just for you, it's for me as well because I may not go and live in the past anymore. But sometimes I pack up and take a trip for a weekend and after I take that trip for the weekend, sometimes I extend my hotel, stay there For another day or two, which is good.

I mean you as growth is progress. I don't live there anymore. But I also need to sit with myself pinpoint where it is or what it is that causes me to want to go back and visit so that the next time I go back and visit I can tear down the hotel that I built. There's a hotel there and I got four hotel just for me to go back. Nobody else is that Well there's a lot of people that take up residence there, they have homes built there, okay, They don't stay at that hotel, they have homes built there, you have people like that too. They all they know is your past. They judge you from your past. They talk about your past, they still communicate about you and with you as if you're in your past and some of that adds to it too. But the reality is that if you move from there, you won't even be able to hear the conversations that that happened. Yeah, if you move from there you won't be able to be influenced by those conversations. You won't be able to be weighed down by those conversations and here you go.

You won't be able to start those conversations because sometimes it's us that starts those conversations and for those that may not travel to the past but you travel to the future, the possibilities of the future. It's the same principle that applies there whistle in a hurry to get somewhere that we aren't taking advantage of what's right before us and I encourage us to all sit with ourselves, sit with ourselves prioritized. I've been talking about priorities and I'm gonna continue to hammer these priorities because one of the biggest things that we need to understand is that we should be our number one priority. I saw something on facebook and I get the principal. I get it. Don't think that I don't get it. I understand what is attempting to be said. They were saying your kids should come first.

I don't agree with that. Are you enjoying today's episode? I can hear you all now said yes, yes. Getting hype. I see it already, see it now. Another question. Would you rather experience these episodes without ads? Some of you? I know you would. So guess what? We've created an ads free program for you. So I want to get that information to you. So here's what I want you to do. Text ads free, two 30 to 208 94 40, enjoy the rest of the show. Some people define stagnation as not producing. We sometimes miss where stagnation can show up as us producing but producing at A level or in a dimension. That's Disrespectful to one our creator and number to us as a creator from stagnation of transformation causes you to look at yourself internally and say, am I producing at A level that serves justice to my ultimate creator and me the creator.

For more information about the book. Text transformation to 302 208 9440. I believe that your health has to come first whether your physical health, your mental health, your financial health, your career, health, your social health, and all the core areas of your life, whatever core area of your life, your spiritual health. You know, I didn't say physical, I believe I said physical, I might have said it twice because I need to be on my way to the gym. But I'm sitting here recording this OK, but I believe that you have to place Yourself 1st as a priority and then as you place yourself first as a priority, you can better serve your Children, your family, your community, all that you desire to do. Why? Because you continue to burn yourself out by stretching yourself while you're empty.

You're running on fumes instead of allowing yourself to be filled all the way up and then pour from your overflow. And then what we want to talk about the kids, what example are we setting for the kids? Because they're seeing you prioritize everybody else except for yourself. Yeah. I don't think I'm not talking to me, I'm talking to me about that. God, I got pride. One of the greatest things that I am learning are the greatest things that I'm embracing I'm embracing in this season is the need to prioritize me even down to my rest. The need to prioritize me down to my physical health. There's a lot of things that we could avoid if we learn how to prioritize ourselves. A lot of us are afraid to prioritize ourselves because that seems selfish. It is and it needs to be done sometimes. You need to be selfish. You need to be selfish. I know that's hard, that's I'm gonna sit that right there for you. D Cliff W. W.

J. D. What would jesus do? He rested? It was time he sent him away and got by himself because he understood the need for his body to be replenished to be restored. You can't just sit and run yourself down and they said oh God I'll call it on you. I need you to restore me on today. Even if I shot your sick. Yeah. Yeah. I saw your God. No restore yourself, restore yourself through making choices that prioritize you sit with yourself, sit with your self. I'm telling you, the more you sit with yourself, the more you won't see yourself from a judgmental state. Because a lot of us judge ourselves like crazy.

Oh we are our worst judges. And then people come along and connect with that energy and when they connect with that energy they are able to transmute that on us. And we're thinking oh here they go talking negative about me. No baby. They picked it up from you. They picked it up from us. I know, I know baby. I know it all too well that's why I want you to prioritize you. I want you to prioritize you because you are important. You are that important. You are. And today you must make the choice to prioritize you unless I want to throw this out to you before I go is very short today. I just released our course called inner brace your best self. Inner brace, your best self. Why? Because it's that inward work. It's the bracing and securing of who we are, internally.

That will begin to determine how we move externally and we'll find ourselves moving with more purpose. We'll find ourselves moving with more clarity. We'll find ourselves moving with more direction or greater clarity, greater direction because we are in embracing ourselves. We're making ourselves a priority. We just hit the fourth quarter Of 2021.

I want to pull you back to the present. All right, I want to have these conversations with you and then from those conversations were going to produce a plan of action and it's gonna be a little flexible plan of action because one of the things we're going to learn is that we need to learn how to be fluid.

I talk about being consistently or to be fluid consistent to be fluid, consistent, fluid is something that I kind of struggled with because I'm a Capricorn. So I like to plan everything. I like to know everything. I don't like the fluid nous of purpose at times. I don't like the fluid nature of life at times because if we're going to be honest, we can plan everything out all we want to but there are circumstances circuits certain there are circumstances and situations that happen that calls us to have to pause for a minute. I want to use a football analogy. We have to call it audible at the line of scrimmage and now begin to change the player and that's okay. And we have to learn how to flow with that. So I want to pull you back, want to pull you back and I want you to sign up for this course because this course is gonna bring great clarity to you. There's a seven week course.
