Andy Baggott is a healer, author and spiritual teacher. He has studied with masters from many traditions including Celtic, Native American, South American and Chinese. His current work focuses on empowering people to connect with their inner wisdom, so that they may achieve health, happiness and fulfilment. He is a trained acupuncturist, natural nutritionist and Tai Chi teacher, as well as a practicing shaman from the Celtic and pre-Celtic tradition.
He lectures and teaches extensively, as well as running a busy healing practice from his home in Somerset, England. In this truly illuminating episode, Andy begins by sharing how his life has brought him what he wanted but in a very unexpected and challenging way. Andy then goes on to explain how we carry inside, everything we need to learn about ourselves and how it is our relationships with other people, that give us an opportunity to work on our issues. Andy talks about why the fear of loss make us hold on to things that could be restricting ourselves from new and expansive experiences and how, especially in these times, it’s important to remain present and flexible and not resist the lessons that life brings us. He talks about how many people are living in what the Daoist call “what if and if only” which then bases your expectations of the future on your experiences of the past and will guarantee to keep your happiness in the future, the antidote to fear in the future, is to trust in your path.
Andy uses the analogy of the clear blue sky as our calm, clear, expansive consciousness, always there when we remove our emotional clouds and as a blank canvas on which to paint our lives. He talks about recognising stress signs in the body, why you shouldn’t act on emotional feelings, the importance of changing yourself and leading by example rather than expecting others to do what you want. Andy gives fascinating guidance on navigating teenage parenting, how not to take things personally but instead to listen out for the emotions and energy behind words. He explains that all behaviour is communication, the depth of love we have for ourselves is the depth of love we can have for other people. We end the episode with Andy’s advice on creating space within your home and how to punctuate your day by checking in on how you are feeling and taking a few deep breaths.
