Jonah Hill & Dr. Phil Stutz: Activate Your Life Force through 3 Relationship Levels

Jun 30, 2023

Jonah Hill and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Phil Stutz explore the transformative power of Dr. Stutz's Tools for Life.

It's a fascinating world of tools, designed to help you unleash your true potential, overcome obstacles, and lead a more fulfilling life.

We love Dr. Stutz's Tools for Life and our fave is the "Life Force" technique that helps us break free from limitations, create lasting change, and live a more vibrant and meaningful life.

Dr. Phil Stutz has this awesome doodle on the concept of the Life Force Pyramid.

There are three levels: the base is Body, then People, and at the top Yourself.

He says focusing on these three levels can have a transformative impact on various aspects of our lives.

  1. Body: The foundation of the pyramid is the Body level, which encompasses sleep, diet, and fitness. Stutz emphasizes the importance of taking care of our physical well-being. This includes getting sufficient sleep, maintaining a healthy diet, and engaging in regular exercise. By prioritizing these areas, we can recharge ourselves and better cope with the demands of daily life.
  2. People: The middle level of the pyramid is People, which emphasizes the significance of human connection, community, and relationships. Stutz suggests that we should actively reach out to others and initiate connections, regardless of their level of interest or perceived compatibility. By fostering meaningful connections and being open to learning from each other, we can enrich our lives and build a supportive community around us.

  3. Yourself: The top level of the pyramid is Yourself. This level focuses on fostering a relationship with your unconscious mind through writing. Stutz suggests that regular journaling or writing allows our unconscious thoughts and passions to surface. By exploring our own desires and understanding our unconscious motivations, we can gain clarity about our passions in life and create a sense of purpose. (of course this is our fave part since ShineOn™ is all about learning Clarity Mapping!)



By working on these three levels of the Life Force Pyramid, Stutz believes that everything else in our lives will fall into place. Taking care of our physical well-being, nurturing meaningful relationships, and connecting with our inner selves can lead to personal growth, fulfillment, and a more balanced and vibrant life.

Oh we just LOVE this!

Thanks Dr Stutz and Jonah Hill!

Love becoming, XO Lucy

TRANSCRIPT

Jonah hillā€Š:
One of the first things you got me working on was my life force. That was such an immediate thing that can change your life. 

Dr. Phil Stutz:
Here's the classic thing that happens. A guy's depressed. He comes into my office and he says, I know my habits are shit. I, I, I know I'm, I'm undisciplined. I know I'm lazy, but if I only knew what I was supposed to be doing, what my mission was in life, et cetera, I'd be like, I was shot out of a gun, but.

I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing so I can, I'm just gonna be lazy and do nothing. And then, and then from that obviously comes to depression. There's something that, that will apply to you and to anybody else who, who doesn't have a sense of direction or doesn't know what they should do next.

And the answer is, you can always work on your life force.

The only way to find out what you should be doing is like who you are. Is to activate your life force because your life force is the only part of you that actually is capable of guiding you when you're lost. If you think of it as a pyramid, there's three levels of the life force. The bottom level is your relationship with your physical body.

The second layer is your relationship with other people, and the highest level is your relationship with yourself. The bottom step is your relationship to your physical body. All you gotta do is get your body working better and, and it always works. The most classic thing is they're not exercising. Diet is another one and sleeping.

Jonah hillā€Š:
So 
what percentage of that stuff is what makes you actually feel better at first?

Dr. Phil Stutz:
Well, when, when it starts out, it's probably 85%. It's very high.

Jonah hillā€Š:
How fucking crazy is that?

Dr. Phil Stutz:
Okay, so that's the first level. The next one is your relationship to other people. And relationships are like you. You know those things.

When you're climbing a mountain, you're pounding those P times. It's like a handhold. So your relationships are like handholds to let yourself get pulled back into life. The key of it is you have to take the initiative. If you are waiting for them to take the initiative, you don't understand this. You could invite somebody out to lunch that you don't find interesting.

It doesn't matter. It will affect you anyway in a positive way. That person represents the whole human race symbolically. So that's the middle tier and the highest tier is your relationship with yourself. The best way to say this is to get yourself in a relationship with your unconscious, because nobody knows what's in their unconscious unless they activate it.

And one trick about this is writing. It's really a magical thing. You enhance your relationship with yourself by writing, and somebody will say, well, Write what you know. I'm not interested in anything. I'm not a writer. It doesn't matter if you start to write. The writing is like a mirror. It reflects what's going on in your unconscious, and things will come out if you write like in a journal form that you didn't know that you knew.

These are the three levels of the life force. If you're lost, don't try to figure it out. Let it go and work on your life force first. It's about passion, increasing your life force so you can find out. What you're really passionate about.
