Welcome To BeHigherBeings
Do you feel stuck?
If so, you’re in the right place. And, remember that “stuck” can look a thousand different ways to a thousand different people. It can mean you’re dealing with an addiction and you’ve tried everything else to beat it. Or you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, and though you get brief breaks from it, you’re tired of it ruling your life. Or you’re dealing with any of a variety of other issues like wanting to lose weight, stop procrastinating or simply setting goals. Most important, you’re in the right place if you’re sick and tired of feeling like you’re on a merry-go-round, trying to find relief in every self-help aisle, while wanting nothing more than to begin living a life filled with more courage, joy and purpose.
A Little About Me…
My name is Neil Firszt. Several years ago, I was near death. Literally. How did I get there? By avoiding reality, using my distraction of choice – alcohol. On my way out of the hospital, where I’d been taken by ambulance after having another round of seizures, the doctor told me that, if I didn’t stop drinking immediately, I’d only be making one final trip to the hospital.
Which got me thinking. And noticing. And then waking up.
Waking up to the fact that I was simply living out a story I had been telling myself since I was a child. That I wasn’t wanted. That I wasn’t worth much. And that, really, no one cared. But, soon after that experience, I began to realize that my “story” wasn’t true, and that I was buried under an identity I created unconsciously. And I began a long journey to find that truth. During that journey, I also realized how badly I wanted to share what I learned with as many people as possible. So that others, in a similar state, would have hope, and a path to follow up and out of the darkness.
And that’s how we ended up here.
A few words of wisdom from Jacob…
- Spend more time in nature
- Don’t be so hard on yourself and others
- Mistakes happen and it’s cool
- It feels great to be nice to people
- Your thoughts are just thoughts… they’re not going to get you
I’m an author, life coach, blogger, podcaster, entrepreneur, and workshop presenter. I’ve studied many of the great thinkers and influencers in the areas of neuroplasticity, psychology, physical health, spiritual healing and emotional trauma. My mission is to help people realize that, when they leave their stories behind and start living again, they’ll finally come to understand just how powerful they are.
I placed an application to speak at TEDx Boulder “Pride and Prejudice” about addictions on August 11th 2019 and will hear back by August 15th! Support ideas worth spreading!
What you’ll find here
On this site, you’re going to find a number of resources, some free and some that cost money. Hopefully one or all of them will help you on your journey. Here, for free, you’ll be able to sign up to receive my regular emails, get notifications when I upload new YouTube videos, read my blog, watch my videos and view some of my free workshops. If you want to go further, you can sign up for my personalized 1:1 training or group coaching.
My main goal is to help you understand how our stories arise from how we grew up and what we were taught to believe. I’ll help you identify your stories by focusing on the present moment, and begin to transform them, through thought-provoking questions and sharing the lessons I’ve learned on my own path. You’ll also see how you’re simply a character in other people’s stories, too, as we all walk around with our stories bumping up against each other.
Because, remember, I’ve been there, too, and have struggled with the same situations, the same questions, and the same doubts, fear and confusion.
My overall hope is that you’ll then become more aware of how your past stories have created your current reality, and how changing your stories through new actions and beliefs can create the future reality you most want.
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to stay sober, stay on track with your diet, bad at relationships, setting big goals, learning self-awareness, dealing with anger/sadness issues, or even if you’re just trying to get through the day without a full blown panic attack, send me an email and I’ll send you my 5 Strides To Kick Stress and Addiction Video!!! Stress and anxiety that lead to addiction don’t have to rule this year!

What is the blog all about?
The articles written here are some of my deepest thoughts and feelings, and also plenty of information on what I’m learning and how it will, without a doubt, help someone else who might be frustrated with their current progress while dealing with anxiety, depression, addiction, blocks and barriers, or just not loving who you have become. It doesn’t take a lot of money or a lifetime to fix what’s not broken! It takes an open mind, accountability, and the knowledge that very soon, you will no longer struggle with addictions, anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, and the rest of life dampening stories we tell ourselves of why we’re not good enough to be on this planet. Too many people have a war on everything! We’re not fighting a war on ourselves, we are looking inward and learning about the consciousness we’ve created, then putting forth the simple effort of making our own minds work for us and not against us. You are taking your life back! The steps I’ve taken have been life changing, and allow me to do more than just survive each interaction for the rest of my life. You are not lost or broken! You are only buried under an identity that you’ve created unconsciously. We are Higher Beings when we leave our stories behind and start LIVING AGAIN! You are far more powerful than you think!
