113. From WARRIOR to AWAKENING | John Lawyer

• 45 min

War does something to a person, not only emotionally, also physiologically. For starters, it rewires your brain to dampen emotional responses to what is being experienced, to exist in a hyper state of alertness and awareness, and to cope with altered sleep patterns. It  can also become very addicted to emotionally charged situations, where uncertainty exists. No wonder veterans can have a tough time readjusting to life outside, making sense of the trauma they've experienced, and simply adapting to living day to day without having to be in a constant state of alertness.   My guest, John Lawyer, has gone from being a soldier and contractor in counter intelligence over 15 years, to an Awakening. That is a HUGE shift for anyone to make! So I'm excited to explore with him just what prompted that and then the journey from having his brain rewired through many years of being a warrior in war situations... to then having to undo that and find his way to a place of peace, calm and purpose through becoming a spiritualist and universalist. He describes it as coming out the other side of the swamp of sadness. John is now commited to merging this spiritual path into everyday life. So join us to hear his incredible story   John's Bio From desert combat zones to a battle within, John Lawyer transformed from soldier to spiritual seeker. He acts as one of several guides for Kishar, a non-profit online spiritual community for people to share their journey and explore their own unique spiritual path. John is an Omnist and believes in the validity of great human thought from around the world and across time. He offers individual spiritual coaching and guidance services as part of the Kishar Spiritual Community.
