Intermission: It’s Okay (Change of Mind)

Barefoot Running Sandals by Xero Shoes

Hi everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Spiritual Alien Podcast.

So, tonight I want to share with you a personal experience I had this past week and why there’s no interview tonight. You may already suspect why by the sudden change in my voice.

After last week’s episode, I was supposed to connect with one out of a couple guests for an interview for tonight’s episode. However, that never happened because I have been feeling unwell for several weeks. I never mentioned anything to you during the intermission episodes because I didn’t find it relevant to do so. At first I was confused and frustrated, because I wanted to do what I was supposed to do, but I couldn’t. So after much hesitation, I announced it on my social media that I had changed my mind and that I was not going to interview someone for this weekend’s episode and that I was going to rest instead.

This can be both good and bad and I will explain to you why. When you are a content creator, people get used to the content that you put out, especially if you give them expectations on what’s next. If you fail to deliver, you get backlash, which I am sure you have seen before with other public figures. In my case, I was running low on energy, plus dealing with hayfever has been a challenge this year as my treatments are no longer working and I have not been able to get a more aggressive treatment. I have constant headaches and nosebleeds and I simply cannot do my work properly of interviewing someone if I am constantly sneezing, with swollen, watery and itchy eyes along with a Barry White voice, so connecting with someone 1 on 1 felt too much, despite it not looking like a big deal for other people. This reminds me of depression and how people think you will just get over it, but I digress.

I like to be professional with my work and what I put out there for you to listen and benefit from. I also like to be professional with my guests, treat them well, be attentive to what they share with you and myself, I like to make them laugh and have fun with me. I love breaking the ice with them and crack a bad joke or a pun to see their reactions.

However, this time I am not in the right mindset, I don’t feel aligned with my body due to how my body has been acting recently, so I cannot be present with them and be my usual sneaky self, if that makes sense. I feel that interviewing a guest while I’m blowing my nose or sneezing every minute is highly unprofessional and I would rather not do interviews at all. To some people this may not seem like such a big deal but I take it seriously because it’s my work. It’s my job to entertain you and inform you while being as high vibrational as possible, but this time I want to apologize to you for not meeting that goal tonight.

However, because you know I love to overthink and overanalyze things, there’s a small twist to this episode. I wanted to share all of this with you because I want you to understand that there will be times when you will change your mind on certain things for whatever reason that may be and it’s perfectly okay to feel guilty or bad for not continuing to think, believe and feel that way, it’s okay if you no longer want to do the thing that you originally intended to do, for no longer resonating with what you used to, for finding a different approach and so on. This doesn’t mean you failed, but simply that you are finding another way, finding other options, readjusting things or that you outgrew things depending on your situation!

It’s okay if you desire to do the thing, it’s okay to no longer desire to do the thing, it’s okay to change your mind, it’s okay to approach something from a different perspective or point of view or with a new solution. It’s also perfectly okay if you are uncertain, nobody has it all figured out. We are all pretending to have our shit together when in fact, a majority of us don’t even know where we left our shit, so don’t think that you need to have it all figured out.

Never be afraid to do something different, to think different, to be different, but most importantly, do not be afraid to say No. No will be the most powerful thing you will ever say. Saying No will show you who’s on your side and who isn’t, saying No will show you who respects your boundaries and who doesn’t. And those who don’t, I want you to tell them to fuck off out of your life.

With that said, I will love you and leave you, I hope you enjoy St. Patrick’s Day, have a safe and fun holiday whatever you are up to and may luck always be on your side.

So, that concludes the purpose of this episode, I wanted to thank you so much for joining me in The Spiritual Alien podcast, make sure you follow me on Facebook @ TheSpiritualAlien and on Instagram @ zionzeta.

Take care and I’ll speak to you soon!

This is Zion Zeta, always at your service!

Intermission: How To Start A Self-Care Routine (3 Questions + 10 Ideas!)

Barefoot Running Sandals by Xero Shoes

Hi everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Spiritual Alien Podcast.

So, tonight I want to share with you how to get started with your own self-care routine. Interviews are still on pause and will resume next weekend.

In the previous episode, I mentioned that there are various types of guilt and I shared with you 5 questions to help you understand and overcome guilt, but I mentioned that I wanted to focus on one specific type of guilt, which is more common than you think, and that is feeling guilt over taking care of yourself, which is what tonight’s episode will be about.

Oftentimes, many of us tend to be overgivers. We give and give and give, but then when someone wants to give back, we freak out, we say no and we reject their blessing. You are so used to giving that when it’s your turn to receive, it makes you feel bad. This is especially worse if you are constantly giving to people who only take from you and don’t give back, you are used to it, and if they are manipulative they will make you think and believe that you are being selfish simply for asking for help for once. This is why you feel guilty over receiving or even taking care of yourself when you feel tired, drained and wish to isolate yourself from the world to rest and recover. It is all mostly external influence that we internalize and consider it as our own thoughts and feelings, when in reality it’s likely some dumb bitch that wants to drain the shit out of you and keep you low vibrational to keep themselves energized. When you are an overgiver, you will attract a lot of psychic vampires and narcissists.

So, tonight, I want you to once again whip out your phone or notepad with pen or pencil and take some notes with me. You can feel free to pause this episode and write the questions down. If you can and are able to, you can also feel free to answer them right on the spot, as I won’t go anywhere.

First question. How do you get started with a self-care routine?

It all begins with an intention. What do you hope to gain from your self-care routine? Is it to rest more and still your mind with meditation? Take more care of your physical body? Be very specific on what you wish to achieve or gain from your self-care routine, as this will help you to customize your very own self-care rituals based on your needs and desires.

Second question. When can you do your self-care routine?

Alright. We all have shit to do in the outside world, but there is always a moment of rest, whether it’s your day off or when you get home after a long day or when you’re pooping. There is no excuse to not take care of yourself. If you can spend your entire day on Facebook bitching about politics and fighting strangers, you can carve out AT LEAST 10 to 20 minutes to meditate, stretch, walk around or listen to a positive affirmation…or one of my episodes, wink wink. So, in a nutshell, do this when you can. Remember, you want to relax and take care of yourself, not stress out over when is the perfect time to do so.

Third question. What does a self-care routine consist of?

It consists of anything and everything that makes you feel good, replenished, well rested and energized. Think of it as your own sacred safe space. So, what do you enjoy doing? Listen closely, because I will be sharing with you a list of 10 things that you can include in your very own self-care routine!

Intermission: 5 Questions To Understand + Overcome Guilt

Barefoot Running Sandals by Xero Shoes

Hi everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Spiritual Alien Podcast.

So, tonight I want to expand on and elaborate more on last week’s topics regarding self-care and guilt. Interviews are still on pause and will resume in mid March.

I have received questions regarding one thing in common. How do you overcome guilt? To paraphrase the emails I’ve been getting, they consist of variations of the same topic; guilt. How do you deal with guilt? How do you handle feelings of guilt? How do you overcome guilt? What I find ironic and concerning is that this type of guilt comes from simply wanting to take more care of yourself. I have been there myself so I speak from personal experience.

So, tonight I want to share with you 5 questions to overcome guilt as you jump on the road to your journey of learning how to take care of yourself. Next week, I’ll share with you how to get started with a self-care routine. Without further ado, let’s get started.

What is guilt? Guilt is the feeling of deserving blame over something you did on purpose, by accident, or for something you didn’t do. For example, feeling guilty for accidentally stepping on your pet’s paw, feeling guilty for intentionally breaking a connection with someone that was toxic for you, or feeling guilty for forgetting to wash the dishes because you are depressed.

Guilt comes in many ways, shapes and forms, and you can feel guilt even for the smallest of things, like having ice cream when you are on a diet because you want to lose weight. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying ice cream, so long as this does not become the only thing you eat every day, this is when it becomes unhealthy.

But there is a type of guilt that not many of us talk about and explore, which is feeling guilt when you decide to shift your focus on yourself in order to tend to your needs and take care of you. This happens when you are constantly overgiving to others and forget about yourself, can you relate? If so, perhaps the following steps can help you identify where your guilt is coming from and how to overcome it. Tonight, I want you to once again whip out your phone or notepad with pen or pencil and take some notes with me.

Intermission: We Need To Talk (Self-Care + Guilt)

Barefoot Running Sandals by Xero Shoes

Hi everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Spiritual Alien Podcast.

So, tonight I want to check in with you. But first, there are some things I want to address, unrelated to this episode. You might be wondering, what happened to the interviews? And, will I continue to upload on YouTube like last year before I deleted all episodes?

Well the first answer is simple, I took a break this week from interviewing because I was feeling overwhelmed with reaching out, connecting, interviewing, recording, editing, uploading, scheduling graphics and writing captions, and all that fun stuff, besides my second book which I abandoned yet again and two other projects that I have been working on with other people. I also forgot the two free eBooks, the one of my upcoming second book and the other one from the GYST series, which were meant to be released in late January. It seems that they will be released by late February instead and I appreciate your infinite patience.

The second answer is more complicated. I spent 2 years on YouTube uploading all of my podcast episodes. My YouTube channel was meant to be an archive for my whole podcast. However, YouTube has been censoring my content from reaching out to more people because they fall into the conspiratorial side of things, and you know that YouTube does not like content regarding conspiracy theories.
