#55: How to Redesign the Subconscious Mind from Limitation to Freedom with Peter Crone

Who would you be if you weren't defined by the limiting dialogue of your own mind? We exist within mental constructs that dictate our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Suffering is a byproduct of these mental constraints. To create an extraordinary life we have to reveal the limiting framework of our perceived reality and shift the perception we have of ourselves in order to become limitless.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to The Mind Architect Peter Crone, a writer, speaker and thought leader in human potential who works with entertainers, professional athletes, and global organizations.

In this episode, Dhru and Peter discuss how our own perceptions and self-limiting beliefs shape our reality, and how to find freedom from a self-imposed mental jail cell. They talk about how to redesign the subconscious mind that drives behavior to inspire a new way of living, from limitation and stress to freedom and joy. They also talk about how the challenges that we experience in our lives are an opportunity to grow, and to be patient, trusting, loving, accepting, and understand that it all works out. We are beneficiaries of life, not victims of it.

In this episode, we dive into:

-What blocks us from having freedom in our life (2:21)

-What is true happiness? (8:59)

-Why the first step in healing is acceptance (9:45)

-The impact of stress on our digestion (16:23)

-Peter’s personal story of losing both parents at a young age (20:28)

-How past hurt informs future fear (23:16)

-Finding freedom in uncertainty (26:39)

-How to break free from judgment (29:37)

-Constraints of the subconscious (45:38)

-The power of imagination (52:04)

-How to be more mindful of language (1:05:29)

-Perfectionism and the stories we make up about ourselves (1:20:22)

-The Healed documentary (1:22:18)

-Learn more about Peter and his work (1:31:38)

How to Improve Your Metabolic Flexibility & Why It Matters (Minisode #57)

Season 2, Ep. 65
This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox.Most of us hear the term “metabolic health” and think it only applies to our ability to burn calories and manage our weight. And while those are certainly big pieces of metabolic health, it also impacts everything from our cardiovascular health to cognition, mood, infertility, and so much more.That’s because our metabolism is actually our body’s ability to create energy and this happens all over the body. If our energy production in the brain is hindered, we could have memory loss; if it’s not functioning properly in muscle cells, we may see chronic pain—and the list goes on.In today’s mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Casey Means and Dr. Sara Gottfried about how our metabolic health impacts our overall health, indicators of poor metabolic health, and how to improve metabolic flexibility.Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels, an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a Lecturer at Stanford University. Dr. Means has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Men's Health, Forbes, and more.Dr. Sara Gottfried is a board-certified physician who graduated from Harvard and MIT.
