EP 318: Beliefs, The Subconscious Mind and Hypnotherapy with Stephanie Kwong
In today’s show, we’re exploring something we never have before – hypnotherapy as a healing modality. And we can’t talk about hypnotherapy without getting into beliefs and how the subconscious mind works, so I was really excited Stephanie Kwong, a dear friend of mine and brilliant practitioner, agreed to come on the show to jam on all of it.
This was a really fun and also personal conversation where we both shared some of the beliefs we’ve been working to rewire. Steph’s was around making it hard for people to love her. Mine was around trusting myself but not trusting others.
We talked about patterns, managing expectations, and the ways we delete and distort information in our reality to make things match our current beliefs. She also walked me through the four ways to actually change your beliefs for good.
This is a really juicy conversation – a combination of personal stories and examples, as well as client stories, really bring home just how complex our minds are and how important it is to pay attention to the ways we act based on what we think is true that isn’t necessarily true.
Enjoy and share!
