The Power Of Your Inner Witness | BABH S2Ep108

season 2 Nov 23, 2021

EPISODE 108: The Power Of Your Inner Witness

One of the key concepts in non-personal awareness (which I haven't really talked about much on the podcast) is the power of your inner witness.

Activating your inner witness is a really direct route to true and genuine self-awareness; it unblocks the jammed up self expression that so many people experience and brings flow and peace to your relationship with yourself and with others.

But in culture that says it reveres authenticity, there's a surprising amount of subtle (and not so subtle) pressure to NOT be real; especially if it might upset the apple cart!

Today you'll discover the misunderstandings that underpin that pressure to hide your shadow side.

Plus I layout how to consciously awaken the witness in you, find the courage to be real and do it in a way that can deeply transform your life.

So hit that play button and let's dive in!

How To Get Jammed Up (Not a good idea!)

Engage in:

  • Self editing (prior to expression)
  • Keeping things inside

Prime mechanisms for this are:

  • Dogma
  • Judgement (Inner)
    • Should be
    • Shouldn't be
    • Ought to be
    • Ought not be
  • Fear of judgement (outer)
  • Self correction (editing)
    • Example: re-stating in the positive because "I shouldn't say it that way; it's not spiritual" etc

The consequences of which are:

  • Hiding the truth (of you)
    • From yourself
    • From others
  • This can even happen in the context of processing/therapy/self-inquiry

Activating Your Inner Witness (Good idea!)

Engage in:

  • Un-edited self expression
  • Un-self-conscious expression
  • Invokes the power of awareness
  • Becomes genuine self discovery (discovering who you really are - in wholeness!)

The consequences of which are:

  • Invokes the witness
  • Creates awareness
  • Awareness does the work for you
  • Natural authentic change

NOTE: Story "Vasalissa" from Women Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Conscious vs. Unconscious

There's a difference between unedited self-expression from a conscious place to what we often see, which is unconscious lack of care.


  • Based on identification
  • Being an arse


  • Invokes the witness
  • Awake/aware/noticing
  • 3rd person perspective (non-personal)
  • Intention (to see the hidden truth)
