3 Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Not all trauma is easily identifiable (09:23 – 09:35)

90% of people are wrong about the traumas that hold them back. If you’ve experienced a trauma like rape, a car accident or witnessing a death, we can clearly recognize where things changed. The difficult part is identifying when a trauma affected you when you don’t think the event was actually traumatic.

  • Change is possible and swift for the person who wants it (12:41 – 13:10)

It’s impossible to change a person’s limiting beliefs unless they really want to. If you’re equipped with the right tools and really want something different, it will happen for you.

  • Use EFT to release trapped negative energy (13:54 – 16:08)

The premise of EFT (emotional freedom technique) is that we are all made of energy, and when we have emotional trauma, it stays with us for the rest of our lives. Your mind processes information and delivers to you things that match your belief system. To break free from this, you can use methods like EFT to reset the beliefs you have stored within.


A lot of us give up our power and control so easily when we let past events, people and things dictate how we feel and react. You can change this by being 100% responsible for all your happiness and not giving other people permission to ruin your day or change how you feel about yourself. Breaking from negative limiting beliefs is all about changing the tapes that are playing automatically in your mind. Remember, the stories you’re replaying aren’t what’s happening right now. Your belief system can be wrong, and should be challenged. Accepting this brings you one step closer to happiness.
