Why Your Subconscious Mind Sabotages You and Resists Change

Why Your Subconscious Mind Sabotages You and Resists Change

WHY YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND SABOTAGES YOU AND RESISTS CHANGE Ever wondered why your subconscious mind seems to talk you out of things that you really want to do, have or achieve in your life? We have 3 main parts to our brain with different levels of mind: the primitive, reptilian or lower brain (unconscious mind), the limbic system or mid-brain (subconscious mind) and the neo-cortex or newer brain (conscious mind). The mind powerfully influences ALL of these brain parts but none more so than the mid-brain, known as the limbic system – the part of your subconscious mind that remembers everything worth remembering.

Rewrite Your Life Story and Get Unstuck

Rewrite Your Life Story and Get Unstuck

How to Rewrite Your Life Story and Get Unstuck   We all have a story that we tell ourselves about our personality, our temperament, our behaviour, our past, present and future. Often that story is full of hurt, pain, regret, anger or blame from our childhood. Our emotional attachments to outdated stories only serve to keep us stuck in fight or flight (stress), triggered in the present by experiences and memories from the past.  They rarely serve you in feeling free, worthy, lovable and enough to move forward in your life and claim your happiness and health. Self-awareness is always the first step

Your Body is Listening to Every Thought You Think

Your Body is Listening to Every Thought You Think

Your Body is Listening to Every Thought You Think One of my favourite pieces of wisdom is: What we think, we create. Literally. Because of my therapeutic holistic approach I spend a lot of time educating my students and clients about epigenetics, neuroscience and neurobiology. We have over 50 trillion cells within our bodies, each one listening intently to the reaction and response of our thinking, as a consequence of our perception. Every cell absorbs this perception – positive or negative, safe or stressful – and will either shrink or expand as a consequence of our thoughts and feelings, whereby creating an internal

Design Your Ideal Morning to Create Your Ideal Life

Design Your Ideal Morning to Create Your Ideal Life

Design Your Ideal Morning, Create Your Ideal Life   Many motivation masters and psychologist agree that how you start your morning will set you up for your day ahead. With all the recent focus on starting a fresh year, I think it’s more important to focus on one day at a time, keeping your overall goals in mind, but giving your power and attention to the current moment and asking yourself, What one thing can I think about/do differently today? Putting a little thought into how you’d ideally like to be starting your day, will help you align the focus, energy

PODCAST: Abuse and Body Image Emerge from Past Pain & Reclaim Your Life   There are many different types of abuse. It can come from the self or it can come from others but all forms of abuse are painful. What happens when the abuse from another turns into excessive abuse towards yourself in the form of punishing, destructive and sabotaging exercise and eating behaviours? In this brand new podcast video I invited Elena Terziyska from EAT Nutrition to talk – for the first time in public – about her experience of remembering her childhood sexual abuse and how that fuelled her body

Chronic Stress Impacts Your Long-Term Health AUDIO INTERVIEW w/ Alison Palmer   Let’s talk about stress and how chronic stress impacts your long-term health.

We never stop helping others do we?! Stress is always a major topic of conversation, and a big reason why people want to learn meditation and relaxation tools.

{Podcast} Rewrite Your Life Story with Chris O'Hearn

MINDBODYFOOD PODCAST How to Rewrite Your Life Story!   We all have that one story that we like to tell ourselves or others from our youth. A defining moment that may have felt unfair, painful, hurtful, justified. We’ve often told this story (what may feel like) a thousand times, and maybe that “fish” has gotten bigger every time you tell it! Where do the stories we tell ourselves come from? What decides if we react or respond in any situation? What holds our values and beliefs, and creates our feelings and behaviours? THE THOUGHTS IN OUR MIND. I’m sure you’ve heard that

5 Limiting Beliefs Holding Your Mind Hostage

5 Limiting Beliefs Holding Your Mind Hostage   When I started MindBodyFood my main driver was to make a difference in the lives of women who struggled with liking themselves, accepting their bodies and were using food as a means of control, punishment or comfort in managing stressful thoughts and emotions. Think BINGE EATING, EMOTIONAL EATING, STRESS EATING. What I’ve realised over the years is that nearly EVERYONE in their lifetime struggles with five core underlying and limiting beliefs that they’re either: Not good enough Not smart enough Not worthy enough Don’t deserve it Can’t do it UNDERNEATH their body and

How to Tap into the Power of I AM

How to Tap into the Power of I AM

THE POWER OF I AM How to tap into the infinite power of these two simple words I love the teachings of Louise Hay and the late Dr Wayne Dyer, who often talked about the significance of the words I AM and how we use them. When I’m teaching my clients or students about the subconscious mind and conditioned thinking, I emphasise the importance of how much power these two little words can have over our entire wellbeing.  Read the next two lines and take note of how each makes you feel… I am a good person who is kind, thoughtful and caring
