Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing the tools of NLP, subconscious reprogramming, and understanding how your subconscious mind works.  It literally doesn’t understand time, at the subconscious level, the mind remembers everything and it can travel time. Our subconscious mind is constantly trying to protect us, keep us safe, and prevent us from feeling pain.  So you might hear that you have to stay present with your thoughts, yet sometimes that doesn’t feel possible. Here’s a permission slip to see your thoughts differently, give yourself some grace and know that your mind is trying...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am leaning into the tools of NLP, subconscious reprogramming, and understanding the power of your thoughts, what if you thought of thoughts as clouds instead of plants?  Clouds move, they come in and go, they never stay and they don’t anchor in place.  Plants take up space, they grow roots, get stronger, take water, and nourishment, and gain life, and will eventually take over if you don’t take care of them.  In today’s episode, we discuss: 1)  Let’s back it up and look at what a belief is.  A belief is simply a thought that you continue to...
