This second episode of Power Talks dives deep into the power of persistent, recurring thoughts and explores the split between our conscious and sub-conscious mind and why it’s difficult to break thought patterns and behaviours. The discord or incongruence between the two minds creates neural dissonance which has a draining effect on our energy and keeps us trapped in a mind treadmill. As such, trying to adopt new beliefs and thought patterns can be enervating and feel like we’re pushing against the current of a river. The talk also examines the mind-body connection and how our thoughts and emotions impact and change our physical body on a cellular and biochemical level. The talk ends on the topic of neuroscience and neuroplasticity and the possibility of being able to re-wire ourselves for positive change, helped in no small measure by the introduction of new techniques (including the Energy Alignment Method).
