#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)

Season 2, Ep. 175
This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Pendulum. Psychedelics were the subject of serious medical research from the 1940s through the 1960s, when many scientists believed some of the mind-bending compounds held tremendous therapeutic promise for treating a number of conditions, including severe mental health problems and alcohol addiction. But by the mid-1960s, research into psychedelics was shut down, a policy that would last for decades.After the blackout ended, the doctor we have on the podcast today was among the first to initiate a new series of studies on psilocybin—the psychoactive compound in “magic” mushrooms.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Roland Griffiths, a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurosciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
