10 things you probably don’t know about Jeff Brown from Soulshaping Institute

Starting a journey to your authentic self brings a lot of people to your path that can clear your mind and show you the way. One of the people I found is Jeff Brown.

If you are intrigued by this man as much as I am, here are some things you probably didn’t know about him!

1) He used to be a lawyer

Before dedicating his life to soul shaping and exploring the unknown roads of his inner being, he used to be a lawyer. He was given a chance to work with a reputable criminal lawyer and turned it down.

He was a model example of success – his name could be seen on the Honor list at the University and his life path seemed pretty clear. He could have been brilliant in it.

His qualifications were stating the obvious. However, his calling was stronger.

2) He gave up opening his law practice after listening to his inner voice

Graduating law is the dream of thousands of people around the world. It is the ticket to wealth and the elite circles of people.

Even though attending law school is out of reach for many, it becomes very strange to realize that someone is simply throwing it away.

However, Jeff Brown decided to listen to his inner voice telling him to stop. The fact that he was able to respect the wants of his soul is magnificent and leads you towards his learning that he shares selflessly with all of us.

He decided to act according to his inner desires leading him to a path of healing. He didn’t even fully understand his call yet, but it is great that he did.

Thanks to his brave journey, thousands of people around the world can relate and trust their gut when it tells them to pursue their passion and hear the cries of their soul.

3) He believes patience is important for the spiritual path

People are generally not very patient beings, I can relate to that completely. We all want results immediately.

Contrary to what we all want, Jeff Brown teaches us patience. He believes that spiritual growth takes time.

Listening to him talk about his journey gives us the motivation we need to stay grounded and wait for our moment of growth. By honestly talking about his struggles, he helps all of the people who mistakenly believe that it is a faster route.

He reminds us that our expectations should be realistic, but he does it in a very inspiring way. Growth takes time.

It also involves growing pains. It cannot and should not happen overnight.

The journey to the soul is not easy and takes a lot of work through the struggles and emotions we didn’t get closure on.

However, it is rewarding on many different levels for the people who are determined to endure and follow their inner voice.

4) He has dealt with the same issues as we do

The reason why Jeff’s podcasts and the books feel so true to us is that he was dealing with the things such as isolation, abandonment issues, and the feeling of being lost the way many of us struggle with for years.

His journey is honest and the reason why we can completely relate to him. After reading about the period when he was leaving his career, you will recognize the feeling of fear we all face during difficult and confusing times.

This is exactly the reason why we can understand him and want to know more. It is always better to learn from other people’s experiences, no doubt about it.

The fact that he didn’t have anyone to rely on during his struggles may be the main motivator behind his desire to help others.

The greatest thing is that he openly talks about it making it easier for the rest of us to survive our struggles in the best way possible.

5) He is one of the Open Heart Gang founders

Together with two of his friends, Jeff started a non-profit organization directed towards spreading love in all shapes and forms. They dedicated their time and resources towards random acts of kindness.

There are some days when the only thing we need is a hug and support from another human being. These extraordinary people recognized this need and simply started sharing hugs with people who needed them.

Besides, they were also investing money in ways no one else would probably think of – by putting their cash into the meters that are about to expire. Helping someone not get a ticket may be a small act, but the gratitude is enormous.

We all need support sometimes. It can come from an unexpected source.

This organization works towards embracing the uniqueness of each and every person, the right to be supported, heard, and nourished spiritually. The teaching that men and women are whole beings with a sacred purpose that can be actualized is liberating.

They strive to help people accept vulnerability and become ready to face all the emotions getting in the way of prosperity.

6) He started doing biomechanics

His path wasn’t a straight line. By reading about his life, you will soon realize that he was open to trying many things.

One of those things is biomechanics. It is the study that goes deeper into the way we move and the ways it can be improved.

It seems like he was building up his knowledge about the overall human experience in this world. Looking at his timeline can give us an idea of his soul-searching.

Every step of the way helped him get close to his calling. Body and mind are closely connected and by helping the body cope, our mind will follow.

7) He shed the light on the source of anxiety

His MA in Psychology enabled him to open the door of the human soul. The struggles he faced helped him get to the bottom of the issues caused by the restless mind and soul.

Listening to Jeff talk about the monkey mind we all struggle with gives us a clearer picture of the direction our development should go to. The source of our anxiety lies in unresolved emotions.

When our mind is filled with so many different thoughts, it is hard to focus only on one thing at a time. He introduces us to a new term “monkey heart” in his book Grounded Spirituality.

He explains in plain words such powerful truths – we can become calmer if we release all the emotions that are stuck in our bodies. Seeing his composure certainly proves that he has done his inner work.

The process might not be easy, but relying on the experience that he shares so openly can be our guide towards the light on our path.

His intentions are clear and he is determined to help others to reach the level of consciousness he reached in his work so far.

8) His work helped his grandma face her baggage

It is something that all of us should do and use our time to bring some closure. Understanding the past is a great step toward the future.

The energy we give to future generations should be purified.
