Real Men Feel: Ep. 133, Feeling The Fears

Feeling The Fears Episode 133, March 9, 2019

A heavy dose of sharing with Andy as I share from my heart about terror, emotional tunnel vision, and the challenges I’ve chosen to face this year. Real Men Feel isn’t just a slogan or catch phrase, it is how I live.

“Life is amazing and life is on your side.” ~Andy Grant

I did this as an impromptu video on Facebook the morning of Friday, March 8, 2019. I recorded and posted it. I didn’t watch until 24 hours later and decided to release as a podcast episode as an example of man willing to openly share his feelings.

Topics and Questions Include:

  • I’ve been crying half the days I’ve been home since vacation.
  • Feeling the Fears
  • A debilitating Terror
  • 3 Challenging Things on my plate for this year: Kabballah, Ritual Master, Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Emotional tunnel vision
  • Lineage of suicide
  • What if…

Real Men Feel: Ep. 132, When the Going Gets Tough

When the Going Gets Tough Episode 132, March 4, 2019

The path of personal growth and spiritual awareness is not always easy and fun. Andy Grant is joined by two higher-level initiates of the Modern Mystery School, Brandon Boucher and Dr. Sean Carey, to talk about personal progression, growth, and pushing through the challenging times.

“I find when I share things that help me, they usually help other people as well.” ~Andy Grant

This episode is the most self-serving I’ve ever done. This conversation is happening because I desperately need it.

It is supposed to be that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Yet, my prior experience has long been with the going gets tough, I want to quit. This year I’m embarking on the Ritual Master path with the Modern Mystery School, and with that a lot of fear is coming up. So I reached out to two men who are further along than I am for some advice and support.

Topics and Questions Include:

  • Sean, how and why did you first got involved with the Modern Mystery School?
  • Sean describes his awakening and kundalini experience.
  • Brandon, how do you describe the Modern Mystery School?
  • What is Magick?
  • Is this a cult?
  • Have you done any sort of personal growth work before this path?
  • Is your personal growth, your progression, always easy?
  • This path has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done – Sean
  • Brandon, Is it ever fun and easy?
  • If it is so challenging, why do it?
  • Have the fears and doubts been prominent for you?
  • Have you ever felt like giving up?
  • What did you do when everything felt stacked against you?
  • The Importance of developing your will.
  • How would you describe the Ritual Master path?
  • What is the negative ego?
  • What do you do to discern between something being your ego keeping you where you are and something that serves your highest good?
  • You both mentioned purpose, does that mean you know your purpose or is this MMS path helping you discover it more and more?
  • Andy shares his biggest fear.
  • What are some helpful things that anyone can put to use?
  • The episode Andy mentioned doing from a low point, Real Men Can Fall Into Depression and Rise Again

Real Men Feel: Episode 61, Finding Hope with Psychological Theorist, Vito Mucci

Finding Hope with Psychological Theorist, Vito Mucci Episode 61, May 23, 2017

This week on Real Men Feel, Andy Grant and Appio Hunter are joined by author and co-host of Divine Union TV, Vito Mucci, to talk about finding hope. This isn’t airy-fairy stuff. Vito is all about science and psychology for everybody as he shares lessons learned from spending eight years at rock bottom.

Andy shares how triggered he was when first coming across Vito on Facebook. Vito then describes what being a psychological theorist means to him. The bulk of the show is about Vito’s eight years of being at rock bottom and attempting to use alcohol to control his emotions.

“Life is pretty adept at beating us down.” ~Vito Mucci

Vito believes alcohol did indeed save his life. He longed for some way to feel safe and alcohol was that safety for a long time. Drinking gave him a sense of control over his emotions.

The beginning of hope comes from not denying our emotions, but in allowing them.

Validate and celebrate all your little successes, those are the embers of hope.

Check out Vito’s book Coffee for Consciousness.

Fear

Just Be You

This post was originally published on my personal blog, and then after rereading it, I thought it would be perfect for here. As men, it is our responsibility to be our genuine, authentic selves by shedding all of the baggage and expectations placed on us by society, culture, family, etc. Enjoy the read!


I’ve been subconsciously aware of a certain pattern with my writing for a long time now, but I’ve only recently started paying deliberate attention to it. The pattern is that I only write when I/m in an “over-the-top” good mood. Truth be told, “Good Mood” is where I usually am, but when I’m in a really good mood I/m a lot more creative, which means that I/m also more likely to write.

When I started examining my writing pattern, I noticed a pattern within the pattern. The times I didn’t write were the times when I subtly entertained a belief that I had nothing to say. I thought that the only time I could write a Reflection was when I had something profound to share. Then, when I looked back at some of my more popular posts, I saw that they were the ones where I was the most vulnerable. I didn’t see my thoughts or insights as being all that profound, but they somehow resonated with many, many people.

Appio Being Happy 01That’s when I started to see that when I’m Appio, not Appio The Emotion Emancipator, not Appio the coach, not Appio the public speaker, just plain ol’ Appio, I share more authentically and I write more prolifically. I’m happiest when I’m baring my soul, being human, and inviting people into my experiences. Those wishing to join me will, and those who aren’t ready won’t. All I know is that everyone who crosses my path does so at the right time, and in a way that positively impacts both of us.

Ever since I stopped hiding and worrying about what others thought of me or the path I felt inspired to take, my life has blossomed in ways I never imagined. My relationships with immediate and extended family are stronger than before, and amazing people have supported me in ways that have left me humbled and awestruck. I’m more blessed than I’ve ever been. Best of all, I continue to step further into my personal joy.

My thought this week is consequently very simple: Just be you. When you allow the genuine, authentic you to step forward and simply BE, you find the very acceptance, understanding, and joy you’ve been looking for. You’ll discover that they’ve been with you all along. The only thing keeping you from experiencing the full expression of your joy is your acceptance of yourself. Once you let go of the illusions that feed your fears and the judgment that others have thrown at you, you can claim what has always been yours. Love. Acceptance. Understanding. And above all, Joy.

Will there be people who reject the authentic you? Perhaps. But if they do, know that their rejection is more about them than it is about you. Their rejection is their way of saying that in their minds, they can only be happy as long as you behave the way they want you to behave. They’re telling you that they see you as being responsible for their happiness. Their message is that they feel powerless and helpless and that it is somehow your responsibility to make things right.

Let me be clear. You are not responsible for anyone’s happiness except your own. As you take responsibility for yourself, you may end up sharing your joy with a few or with millions, but if all you do is experience your personal expression of joy, then that is enough. Your expression of joy is enough because if each of us expresses our joy in our unique way, without worrying about what others think, we will collectively create the very world we want to live in.

If, as you choose to be you, the people you love the most walk out of your life, it is important to know two things: First, as difficult as the experience may appear to be, they are clearing your path and giving you the freedom to express and experience your personal joy. Second, the shock of separation is only temporary. Your life will quickly be filled with those who genuinely support you and your vision for yourself.

It is okay to experience the fear of rejection, and as you feel that fear, do your best to release it. Turn your attention instead to what you want to experience. When that happens, the universe itself will become your willing, enthusiastic collaborator and help you create everything you want. I absolutely guarantee it.

That’s all I have to say for now. Be well, my friends, and be you. You are, always will be, supported.
