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 Our emotional attachments to outdated stories only serve to keep us stuck in fight or flight (stress), triggered in the present by experiences and memories from the past.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

7 Insightful Questions to Help You Create Real Change

7 Insightful Questions to Help You Create Real Change

Create Real Change – 7 Insightful Questions   I help people create change – the kind of deep conscious change that alters our subconscious programs and changes our reality from the inside out. There are many ways to go about change, however most people approach it in the WRONG way.  They try to force change, change everything all at once, and don’t uncover and confront the BELIEFS in their subconscious about the change they want. With our subconscious in control of 95% of our daily thoughts, it’s quite futile to try and make change without consulting what you believe about what you want, based

On Behalf of Your body, PLEASE do This

On Behalf of Your body, PLEASE do This

ON BEHALF OF YOUR BODY, PLEASE DO THIS…. Do you ignore your body’s needs… like the need to eat, to pee, to sleep? Are you often so busy or up in your head that you ‘forget’ your needs, or simply put your needs aside? Let’s be honest – we ALL ignore our needs at some time or another. But when it becomes a regular occurrence, your body is the one that suffers… malnutrition hormonal imbalance discomfort fatigue low energy moodiness weight gain increased stress and strain… and the list goes on. Working WITH your body means listening to its’ inner wisdom

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

How Dieting Works Against Your Body and What You Can Do to Work With it   Have you been doing EVERYTHING “right” but your body doesn’t seem like it’s doing what you want? Don’t lose faith in it, learn to trust it again so your body can learn to trust YOU again! It’s an interesting concept that most people don’t even consider – that your body might lose trust with you after all your efforts to make it weigh less and feel healthier. The thing is most of these efforts are done without consulting the body. Instead of turning inward,

{Podcast} The Cost of Staying Stuck

The Cost of Staying Stuck   If you’ve ever tried to reach out for help but at the last minute retreated back into the safety and comfort of what you know – even though it might be painful or uncomfortable – have you ever thought about how much it costs you to stay there? The nature of human behaviour is that we want change, but often are unwilling to do the changing! When I receive an enquiry from someone, they usually send it at a time when they can’t take it anymore. When the pain is too intense, when the discomfort

DIETING DANGER – Food Can’t Fix Feelings   Have you ever been on a diet? If you’re here at MindBodyFood, you most probably have! In fact, there’s bound to be many of you who have never got OFF the diet wagon because you’re still struggling to feel comfortable in your body (instead of ashamed). Have you recently committed yourself to a ‘new’ diet for the New Year? We so often fall into the trap of believing that if we can control our food and change the way we look, we just might be able to control how we feel. NEWS FLASH –

3 Steps to Embrace Your Body Now

Embrace Your Body in 3 Steps, NOW Ready to embrace your body, dump the hate and stop punishing it with endless diets and negative self-talk? Recently I attended the first Toowoomba screening of the new documentary, EMBRACE by Taryn Brumfitt. Hundreds of women, men and children have attended in our region, but after watching, feeling inspired, shedding tears and finding hope… now what? It’s opened a huge pandoras box for so many women who are now wondering, well just HOW do I embrace my body? What do I do? Our bodies are nobody else’s business, yet we constantly allow ourselves to be distracted by comparison,

5 Limiting Beliefs Holding Your Mind Hostage

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

Overcome Negative Body Image

Overcome Negative Body Image

Overcome Negative Body-Image Here’s how just one of many clients did it! Sometimes in my coaching practice I need to get down into the pit with a client… really sit down in the mud with them and wade through the shit in their lives. It’s my job to hold steadfast as an anchor for them while they experience losing control or embracing their fear. Whatever the overwhelming emotion is, I’m always willing to go to the depths with them in order to help guide them back out of it. Not many traditional therapists allow themselves to do that, with the idea

How to Get a Good Night Sleep

How to Get a Good Night Sleep

Get a Good Night’s Sleep I openly admit I’ve been guilty of prioritising emails, phone calls, and tweaking my website over getting to bed at a decent hour. Once I’m actually in bed it’s very tempting to check my Facebook, Instagram and YouTube accounts – and I know I’m not the only one! Sleep deprivation affects a large percentage of the population and contributes to various health concerns. It’s hard to show up every day and be productive, effective and vibrant when you’re consistently lacking sleep. According to Shawn Stevenson in his latest book, Sleep Smarter – a scientific look at
