Most people run from death and avoid the endings at all costs. Stephen Garrettembraces Death as his wisest teacher who helps him let go of who he thinks he is, so he can become who he really is. His journey with Death started when his sister died unexpectedly at 36, and suddenly Stephen realized he was living someone else’s life as a Wall Street executive. That sparked a lifetime journey of discovery and steps deeper and deeper into the unknown with trust of God as his guiding light.
Listen to this interview for profound insights into living gracefully with one’s ego, surrendering control to God, and intentionally dying to the self you think you are every night so you can wake up in wonder and curiosity about who you are today.

Stephen and I were talking after the interview, and he shared with me this powerful system for understanding whether your choices are coming from Fear or Freedom, Creative or Reactive. He offered to gift this teaching to you! Read the essay that explains the system, see the system overview, and view the system diagram. It’s a powerful way of assessing your choices and how you’re making them!
As promised, I invented a tool for myself to let go of my former career as a fall-back plan so that I could fully embrace my path as a spiritual guide. Here it is for you to try it too!
It’s a declaration you can keep making for yourself and the Universe. Print it out, and fill out the back doors that come into your awareness. For example, write down all the things your mind says when you make this statement: “If this doesn’t work, I can always…“.Take a red marker and draw a big bold X across the whole paper.
Read each statement and visualize the back door slamming shut.
Shake your body and imagine all the energy tied up in these back doors falling to the earth to be transmuted into clean energy for your passion business.
Post it on your wall.
