On today’s episode of Creative Space, we have the pleasure of chatting with Shiraz Baboo. He’s an award-winning author, international speaker, and reality interventionist. He coaches people to get out of what he calls “reality addiction” and his book, ‘How to Rewrite Reality’ has changed lives around the globe. Shiraz helps people annihilate their unconscious addiction to stories of struggle and lack, resulting in an abundance of free time, money, and energy.
We cover a lot of ground in this episode, starting off with Shiraz's 18-year battle with arthritis and how overcoming it led to his career as a life coach and energy healer. We talk about the power of belief and how we can change our lives by rewriting the stories we tell ourselves. We also dig into the nature of creative energy and how artists tap into it, overcoming writer's block, and what keeps us from following through on our New Year's resolutions.
