Hey it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business
and life you love. And today whether you are a parent, you hope to be a parent, or even
you have parents, I think each of us wants a more loving and connected relationship to
our families and my guest today is gonna show us how.
Dr. Shefali Tsabary is a clinical psychologist and author of the award-winning book The Conscious
Parent. Oprah Winfrey has hailed it as one of the most profound books in parenting she’s
ever read. Her latest book, Out of Control: Why disciplining your child doesn’t work…
and what will, is breaking ground with its revolutionary perspective on how to create
positive change in families. She blends mindfulness with western psychology, integrating wisdom
from both traditions. Dr. Shefali has a private practice in New York City.
Dr. Shefali, thank you for being here.
Of course, I’m so excited.
So as we were talking before the episode I was sharing how we have so many parents in
our audience, but then we have this unexpected amazing audience of people like age 9 or 10
and up. So I’m so excited to have you here today so we can talk not only about conscious
parenting, but also really the underpinning spiritual principles that can help all of
us relate better to ourselves and our teams and our parents and our kids and just have
better relationships across the board.
Absolutely.
So let’s start off. What are some of the basic ideas around your concept of conscious
parenting?
So like you said, even though I talk and write about conscious parenting, it’s really about
all relationships, but particularly the parent-child dynamic because that is just such a personal
relationship. I mean, I don't think anyone gets more defensive about their issues than
a parent because the child is yours, you know, it’s the one person you believe, narcissistically
disillusioned, to believe that it’s yours. It’s a delusion, but you believe it’s
yours. Right? So the ego comes roaring in such ferocity, in such velocity and you believe
you can, you know, possess and control and contour this person into the ideal image of
yourself. We’re doing this in all relationships but we do it full force in the parent-child
relationship, and my approach speaks to this in position of the parental ego on the child.
And asks parents and takes them to task on it. Challenges them to become aware that there
is this thing called the unconscious that we put on our children and impose on them
burdens from our emotional past that are not really theirs to hold, to bear, to contain,
to heal. This kind of internal fixing needs to be done by ourselves. Internal fixing needs
to be done by ourselves. But we’re unconscious of this, so onto our children comes all our
past baggage and all our desires, all our, you know, wishes for our own ideal self to
be manifested that we couldn’t but we make our children do it. So in this process of
imposing the ego on the child, the child loses its authentic self. Right? And has to forsake
its authentic self, give it up for its parent. And the child loves its parent and doesn't
even know that this is happening, so will just give it up. And in that process year
after year after year the child becomes increasingly more disconnected from their authentic voice
and then you have an adult who’s lost, directionless, purposeless, not knowing how to access that
inner voice. And that’s what we see in teenagers, we see that in adults, and that process starts
in the parent-child dynamic.
This is so fascinating because everything that you’re suggesting and all of your work,
I think, is so revolutionary, so beautiful, but brings us back to our own wisdom both
as a parent, which I’m a step-parent, I don't have a biological child, but also as
an individual. You know, listening to our own inner guide. And I think something that
you said that I see so much throughout my work and I’ve tried to keep a balance of
in my professional life is even though I may have suggestions, is guiding people back to
their own inner voice and their own inner wisdom because they know better than I do.
I can give little guideposts or suggestions, but they’re usually sparks.
But that’s because you’ve learned to so honor that inner voice in you that you don't
wanna mess it in anyone else.
Yes.
Because you realize how sacred that is, what a valuable, inestimable gift that is. Right?
So you’re not giving that up. So therefore you hold it sacred in the others you meet.
But imagine being raised having that inner voice being trampled. Right? That inner voice
being disconnected from within, so then you don't even know that you need to be honoring
this voice. So when your child comes you’re thinking, “Ok, I’ll just do what my parents
did and just slap on my huge ego onto them,” and thus goes on the process of generational
trauma, generational pain. It just keeps going on and on.
Yeah. You’re giving me so much respect for my mom right now. I just saw her in Vegas
not too long ago and since I was a very little girl she would tell me that I have this small
voice inside and she’s like, “What do you think? How does it feel?” And I love
hearing this because it really is, we all have this beautiful gift that guides us to
decision making, relationships, how to be a great person. And I love this approach because
you’re giving parents such freedom and so much more soulful connection with the little
beings they created and they love more than anything.
Yeah. It’s the biggest gift to give parents, it is ultimately freeing, but parents get
threatened by this approach because it’s all about them. It’s about them doing the
inner work. They can’t be misguided into believing, seduced into believing, that there’s
some therapist that’s gonna come and fix their child or fix them. They’re gonna have
to do the inner work. But the minute they are on this journey they become liberated
because they can trust that inner guide, they can re-access their own, you know, purpose
for living and reorient themselves to their inner compass. Right? What greater liberation?
They don't have to read another parenting book, they can… right? It all starts from
within. So that’s the core principle and authenticity then becomes the core principle
of the family life. Authenticity, worth, self orientation, inner introspection, inner reflection.
So these become the pillars of raising a child, not success, not grades, not beauty, not wealth.
It’s all the inner dimension.
Which leads me to something that we talked about on the phone and I thought it was excellent.
Let’s say our child or ourselves, we’re struggling with something as common as overeating.
You know, and so many times we wanna go right to perhaps the action. Ok, well, we need to
adjust the diet or start looking at how much food. And perhaps that’s a component but
you said, “No, no, no, no, no, there’s something much deeper that we need to look
at.”
Well, so this approach really stays true to the premise that it’s all happening on an
internal level. So all external behaviors are a mirror of the internal landscape. And
so it is with the people we encounter. So first, you know, you orient yourself constantly
that if another person is being mean to you or said that you’re ugly or you’re fat
or you’re lazy, it’s coming from their pain. So this is the first thing you teach
your children, that everyone has this looming, dark unconscious and when that unconscious
is triggered, pain comes out. And pain often looks hurtful and looks mean and looks cruel.
And then the second thing to orient children and parents to is that when our sense of worth
is based on how one feels and how connected one is to one’s voice, then we are free
from the external tentacles of, you know, either the looks or the grades or the achievement.
So the orientation to this inner work liberates you from being controlled by the other and
liberates you from being controlled by what society puts on you in terms of how we should
be on the outside.
Yeah, because who knows. Who makes up these rules of what’s perfect, what’s successful?
Right.
We were talking about this on a recent episode that we just shot just about success, you
know, society can’t even define it clearly. It’s like something that we really need
to take back for ourselves and really look at, you know, orientating it around what’s
happening on the inside.
But we have to be mavericks in this. We have to be kind of rebellious and go against the
tide because especially for parents, I mean, the pressure we have. You know, if you enroll
your child for ballet at 5 you’re already 2 years behind the curve. You know? You’re
already falling behind. The race to nowhere is treacherous, it’s uphill, and it’s
constant. But everyone’s on it so you feel kind of like you’re not doing something
right, you’re not being a good parent by not, you know, entering that herd.
Yes.
So what a maverick parent you have to be but, let me tell you, when I tell parents that
they have the freedom to become maverick parents they’re so, you know, enlivened by that.
They’re just waiting for permission. You know, can I not go crazy if my kid doesn't
go to an Ivy League school? Can I allow my kid to just be? You know, this doing, this
fixing from the outside. So like you were saying, if a kid overeats or if a person overeats,
the behavior is always speaking to the inner feeling, the inner landscape. So always taking
the external to the internal.
Yes. One of the questions that we got, and we get thousands of questions from our viewers,
and there was one that really broke my heart and then when I knew you and I would be talking
today I said, “You know what? Dr. Shefali, this is one that I really wanna hear her perspective
on.” So I sent it to you earlier and I’m just gonna read a little bit to orient everyone
for this question from Alisha who is struggling with perfectionism, which is not only something
that a teen struggles with but, of course, many people and a lot of women. So she’s
a very high achiever, she’s the president of the future business leaders of America,
she’s the vice president of the national junior high society, assistant editor of the
yearbook, she’s maintained a 4.0 GPA for the past 5 years, and she has high school
level classes even though she’s in middle school. Check this out.
“I have a boyfriend I love, my family that I love, and for some reason whenever I mess
up, which seems to be a lot lately, I find myself wishing to start over. Start a new
week, a new month so I can just try to make it perfect again. I can’t tell you how many
weeks I’ve beaten myself up for not making it a ‘perfect week’ where I follow my
schedule each day. No one around me is extremely hard on myself, in fact, most of the people
I surround myself with are very forgiving of any mistakes I make. So why can’t I stop
obsessing over starting anew and making things perfect?”
What do you say to Alisha?
She’s insightful, she’s courageous. At least she knows the traps she’s falling
under. And she’s not unlike millions of us who have put this mantle of perfection.
I can identify with that. Absolutely.
And decided that this is the only way to validate your sense of self. So she’s actually kind
of doomed because she is good at so many things. You know, whenever a parent starts out by
telling me, “You know, the problem with my child is that my child has so much potential,”
I go, “Oh, the child is doomed.” You know, “My child is gifted.” I go, “Doomed.”
Because this is all coming from the outside. So as you can see with her, she’s now created
markers of her identity not based on much internal but all things external. Now, here
lies the trap. If one of them doesn't fall into place you can hear her obsessing over
it. You know, if in the day I don't meet all my markers, which are high markers, she almost
doesn't have a sense of self. She wants to erase it and start all over again, rebirth
herself. So her as is-ness in her humanness, in her ordinariness doesn't exist, cannot
exist anymore. So she has to live at this vibration at all times, which it’s unreasonable,
it’s unsustainable. So she’s crumbling under that pressure, but she’s put this
on herself. She’s so brilliant that if she could now learn to put all that energy that
she’s put in the external world and take it in and go, “Did I live with my authentic
voice today? Did I speak up today? Did I do what my heart told me to do rather than just
staying in my intellect, in my head, in my mind? Was I allowed to be in stillness? Did
I detach from all external pressures today?” She has to do the reverse. Right? She has
to go really inside herself and use that as markers of success. So that’s going to be
her challenge as an adult. She’s already realizing that she’s in a loop. Right? So
she’s gonna have to really make that shift.
You know, I think that’s fascinating because I can even hear in my own mind as you’re
saying this, my spirit softens, my shoulders soften, and I can hear my mind, which is very
driven, very go, go, go. But, yes, but I’m striving for excellence. And I think a lesson
that I’ve learned and the older I get it’s like I can have excellent standards, but my
happiness and my well being has to trump everything and that always comes from within. And I think
one of the things we can share with Alisha, I know from at least my own experience having
had the blessing to achieve success on some external levels, there’s days where if you're
not feeling good inside, none of it matters.
It doesn't matter and it doesn't even sit for a second. The next mountain is right there.
Yes.
So it’s almost like the universe gave us these gifts but we’re not happy yet because
now we see the next horizon and we’re still racing with the same restlessness. So that’s
not fair. The universe is like, “You know what? That’s it. This girl can never be
happy. I’m stopping right now.” Till she learns. Right? So it’s about slowing down
and remaining steady wherever we are. You know, achievement is great, achievement is
purposeful, it drives us, it keeps us living, it juices our life, but if we’re not steady
within and we’re doing it from this gnawing hunger, then the hunger… we think that,
oh, you know, the flowers will make me feel happy and a pretty light and a beautiful dress.
But that hunger, because we’re feeding it with toxic things, the void just gets wider
and bigger.
And I think this is such a fun challenge for all of us, especially in our digital world
where, you know, for young kids, for teens, for young adults, for adults, people of every
age, you know, you can go on social media and if you let yourself be sucked into, you
know, I can say even for me in our own business and career it’s like all these things that
quote unquote I should be doing and I should be striving for. You should want your own
network television show and I’m like, “Actually, no. I don't.” When I pay attention to my
own internal voice I feel really good about the things I say no to. I feel really good
about disengaging from social media so I can stay in touch with my own truth.
And it’s hard because the world is coming at you. This girl is doing what she was supposed
to do. This is what she was told would get her to her successful next life. So she thinks
she’s doing great, but it’s creating more hunger in her, it’s creating more anxiety
in her, so it’s insatiable. Right? The success driven, achievement driven world is an insatiable
monster. It’s up to us to say, you know, this is who I am, this is what makes me happy,
and I’m gonna go in pursuit of this.
Yeah. So this is something I was so curious to ask you. I know you’re a mom, you have
a daughter named Maya, and I know from my own work, you know, we work really hard to
try and give the best suggestions and resources we can and when I find myself in a place of
doubt and I’m like, “Oh, I don't know what’s going… I should actually go watch
my own… I did a show on this.”
What would Marie say?
What would I say? Yes. Do you ever find yourself with your daughter…
All the time.
… like your daughter’s like, “Mom, wait?”
All the time. Every day. And worse that now they’re following me around with the video
camera, my daughter and my husband. They’re like, “Oh, let’s go show everyone how
Dr. Shefali is being so unconscious.” I look back and they’re with a video camera
right there. I’m like, “What is this? I’m being stalked in my own home.” And
my daughter is constantly telling me, you know, “Mom, that’s a punishment. You said
punishments are manipulative,” or, “That’s not in your book. Go read… yeah, read your
book Mom.” Or the one day she said, “Mom, you’re being so, like, centered and so sweet.”
I said, “Yeah, I just read my book. I just read a few chapters.” So I have to… this
is why we do the work. I think we do it for ourselves. It’s completely self serving.
It’s only about me. You know, it’s always about us, and even working with my clients
on a daily basis it’s building my muscle. They’re giving me, you know, and I get paid
for it, but they’re constantly teaching me. Our children are constant… everyone,
every relationship takes us back to ourselves if we’re willing to take the invitation.
I think it’s so exciting because at least what we hear sometimes and when I encounter
our viewers or even when we’re interacting in online courses, people can have an idea.
Someone like you who has written these brilliant books and has had and has the opportunity
to work with so many people, like, oh, she’s got it all together. It’s like no, we are
practicing every single day as well.
And when they say it that you have it together or they’re putting you on some pedestal,
you know, it’s so seductive. Right? To think, “Oh, yeah. I do have all the answers.”
But, again, it’s their projection of their insecurity and their need onto you. And then
if you think that you are that, you’ve just been seduced by your own ego wanting inflation.
Right? So it’s constantly understanding it’s a game of projection. This is what
relationships are. It’s a constant, you know, ping pong of projection. Now one is
projecting their need and the other one thinks they can fulfill that it and eventually it’s
the understanding that only when we detach from the projection and fill our own need
and feel satiated from within that we can truly be fulfilled and happy. And then we
don't have to jump from relationship to relationship and be filled with bitterness that, “I thought
you could fill my need. I thought you’d be my mom or you’d be just like my dad.”
 But no because everyone is coming to each other with outstretched hands, you know, you
give me, no, you give me. So it’s all about filling the inner cup. You know, going inside
and doing that inner work.
Yes. Have you, just out of curiosity, you’re so compelling, you’re so good at what you
do. I’ve watched so many of your talks online and seen you on various shows. All of these
ideas, they’re very deep and very spiritual. Do you find that people ever come to you just
for general therapy that aren’t necessarily a parent and just want help understanding
this ability to be present?
Oh yeah, yeah. Yeah, I have as much of my practice filled with parents as I do non parents
and couples and teenagers and people who just want to find their inner voice again, you
know, and how do they get rid of the din of society and din of achievement and din of
you should be and, you know, you need to be and reclaim that authentic self. It takes
grounding, it takes practice, and everyone’s asking but how but how. I get it here but
I can’t do it. It’s practical but it’s also wisdom based. Right? It’s something
you grow into. So it’s both, it’s a practical tool of seeing it in the moment and go, “Oh,
this is the moment she was talking about. Right now I’m being triggered. This is what
she was talking about. This is my ego. What about my ego? What’s being hooked?” Seeing
it all in the moment, very hard to do, especially when you’re confronted with the child who
is melting down or going through something. How do you stay present? And then it’s also
growing into it. So it takes time… it’s in the moment but then you have to… it’s
an accumulation of moments, right? Sage wisdom is something you grow into as well. So I tell
parents and I tell my clients that you have to give yourself time. This… you’re at
this point in your journey because this is where you’re meant to be. You can’t be
where you think I am because where you think I am is not even where I really probably am.
Right? So you have to just do you in all your unconsciousness, in all your chaos, in all
your madness, and from this, you know, from this mud Goldie Hawn’s book the lotus will
burst forth. So don't look to make it something that it isn’t. It’s yours, so claim yours.
Really beautiful. Dr. Shefali, is there anything else that you wanna leave us with today? Of
course, if you don't have her books you’ve got to get them. We’ll put links below.
Brilliant, brilliant stuff. But anything you wanna leave us with?
Just that, you know, our children are here to show us in so many grand and majestic ways
who we are. And we’re not fully capitalizing on their wisdom. We’re so working from this
top down approach and, you know, using children to get to where we need them to be that we’re
failing to attune, failing to listen. Because they house the wisdom that they need to manifest
their greatest destiny. We just need to get out of their way. And this holds true for
ourselves, in our relationship with ourselves. This holds true in our relationship with our
spouses, with our partners. It’s about detaching from the insatiable desire to have our needs
be met from the outside. That’s, I think, the central premise.
Really, really beautiful. Thank you so much for being here.
Thank you, it’s been great.
Now Dr. Shefali and I would love to hear from you. So we’ve got a two parter today for
your challenge. The first we’d love to hear about, what’s something that triggers you?
Whether it’s a trigger in your child or in your spouse or something in your life that
just really gets that ego to come forward. And then part two of that, if you could step
back and really ask yourself how is that trigger about you? What is it calling forth in you
to look at, to be more present with, to really shift your perspective around? We would love
to hear all about it in the comments below.
Now, as always, the best conversations happen after the episode over at MarieForleo.com,
so go there and leave a comment now.
Did you like this video? I loved it. If you did, subscribe to our channel and, of course,
we would be so appreciative if you shared this with all of your friends. And if you
want even more fantastic resources to create a business and life that you love, plus some
personal insights from me that I only get to talk about in email, come on over to MarieForleo.com
and sign up for email updates. Stay on your game and keep going for your dreams because
the world needs that special gift that only you have. Thank you so much for watching and
