208: Blu – Turning Your Traumas Into Your Greatest Gift

Podcast

“Whose story was I living?” – Blu

Today’s guest on Onken Radio is Blu, a friend I met at Arkana who is defying expectations at every turn. Blu also goes by Blu Cosmic Eagle and she served in the Royal Air Force before trying magic mushrooms for the first time and starting her journey as a curious mystic. When she learned that she would gradually lose her hearing due to an incurable hereditary disorder, she bought a guitar and went traveling with it. Now an accomplished musician, Blu had to work through her own shifting identity alchemy to reach the point she’s at today where she sees her hearing loss as an invitation to listen deeper. She encourages others to turn their traumas own into their greatest gifts in her recent TEDx Talk where she shares the amazing story of how she moves through the world.

In this episode, Blu explains what it looks like to live to blow your own mind. We also discuss what it was like for Blu to lose her hearing, the difference between prayer and performance, and why she wants everything in her life to be beautiful.
