And here we go. Hello, everyone. I'm your host Mary Lou Rodriguez. Thank you for joining me on the unstoppable mind podcast. Happy New Year. Happy New Year. I'm just so excited because I know that this is going to be the best year of my life. In today's podcast episode, we are going to be talking about why you should learn subconscious reprogramming. So I do want to say that today's episode is going to be a little bit longer than my normal episodes, grab a pen and paper because you are going to want to take notes, you're also going to want to stay to the end of today's episode, because I have a very special invitation to you. I'm doing a really incredible workshop, called breaking the rules of reality be unstoppable. And this workshop, when you sign up, there's a special gift that I'm going to give to you that I know you're going to love. So stay to the end of today's episode, and the link will be in the show notes. So we are going to dive into why you should learn subconscious reprogramming, and just how powerful it really is. Before we do that, though, I wanted to share with you the kinds of people that I teach subconscious reprogramming to the type of people that I tend to attract into my business, or people who want to live their best lives, who want to master the inner game, so that they can show up powerfully in the world and do whatever it is that they are called to do. I work with entrepreneurs and visionaries, and conscious creators and spiritual leaders, coaches, consultants, and just really, really incredible people. So I have a program called Hypno thrive, where I teach step by step amazing people how to rewire not only their own mind, but how to rewire their clients minds, to master the and maximize rather excuse me the results that their clients want to have. So that they can have the long lasting transformation. I mean, who doesn't want long lasting transformation? Well, I have figured out how to offer that to my clients, how to offer that to the world. And I teach other people to do that. So I love to say that I rewire people's brains for a living, because that's what I do. For those of you who have not heard yet, I'm going to be going back to school to become a neuroscientist. Okay. So I do want to say that transformation is no joke, you must be committed in order to have the transformation that you are desiring. I am going to do a future podcast, podcast episode on being committed. Because I think it's fascinating. And I think it's important to understand what commitment really means and what we are really committed to. So transformation just become so much easier when you understand why the change in our brains can be so hard. Because when we understand why the change can be so hard, then we're not taking everything. So personally, we're not feeling like failures. We're not feeling like we can't do this. When you can understand what is happening in your beautiful brain, then you're like, Okay, I get why this habit is so hard to break. So, transformation, in order for you to have true transformation, you must rewire, reprogram recode your subconscious mind. And what you're going to learn in this episode can literally start transforming your life. It's going to be jam packed full of tools and information. Some of this I've already shared with you on previous episodes, and some of it will be new. So this episode isn't just about teaching you the tools to reprogram your own mind. It's also really incredibly powerful if you're a coach or a consultant, and you're trying to figure out why your clients are not having the long lasting transformation that they desire and deserve. So

Unknown Speaker  4:43  
I teach my clients and I also teach all the badass world class, world class hypnotherapist that are graduating from Hypno thrive. I teach them step by step, how to create the core level change that they want in their life and the chain their clients want wants as well. So there are a lot of symptom based transformations out there, meaning that they help you feel better momentarily. But it doesn't change the way that you think. And this is where a lot of you know therapy. And coaching can be challenging. Not saying it can't work, because it absolutely can. But you can have work with somebody and, and they can become aware, and they can have insights, that if you cannot help them change their thinking, the neural networks are still there in their brain, and they're ready to fire again, when a challenging situation comes up. And if you look at your own life, look at how many times you've tried to change something in your life. And you've tried to change it with your external circumstances, the action, but you never changed the person that you are being you didn't change your thinking. I remember, one New Year's Eve a while a while back, I was I was I decided that I wanted to stop drinking. And I think I managed to quit drinking for 30 days. But all I was doing was trying to stop drinking. I wasn't doing the inner work, to change my thinking around alcohol, or to change my life, or to learn how to heal the trauma. So this is what most people do when they try to change especially around the New Year. Right now everybody has all these new year resolutions right? Now you might be going to the gym, saying I'm going to do this for the rest of my life. So I'm excited and I cheer you on. But I also know what happens in the brain and why habits can be so hard to break disempowering habits. The workshop that I'm going to be offering to the world is I breaking the rules of reality. And the reason why I'm calling it that it's because it's exactly what I have done. I have skyrocketed in my life and in my business. And I want to show you how to do that to an in my business now. I do one to one sessions. And those are very, very exclusive. I see a very limited number of people. I see more people I do big group hypnosis sessions in my membership called the unstoppable mind. And you can find out more by going to Mary Lou And of course, you know that I'm doing this podcast, the unstoppable mind. And I mentioned earlier about my program called Hypno thrive, where I teach others how to become unstoppable, badass world class hypnotherapist I am creating an unstoppable movement. I am breaking the rules of reality, and I am having the time of my

Unknown Speaker  8:22  
life. So I want to share with you what I'm doing. I do want to just review what neuroplasticity means. It's the brain's ability to learn and grow because I'm gonna talk about that. conscious mind is the analytical side of the brain, the thinking brain, the subconscious mind is on the right hand side of our brain. It's the language of our imagination. It's where our beliefs and our habits, our feelings, our intuition, long term memory, etc. The subconscious mind is the power center of your brain, and it controls 95% of your daily decisions and actions. Whether you are aware of it or not. The subconscious mind is where your unconscious thoughts are patterns and beliefs that you work from today. So why is change so hard? There are a few things that are happening. One of the first things that I want to share with you is that when we consider changing our lives, the concept of change is at the forefront in our brains. Because we know Okay, in order to lose weight, we have to take action. We have to do something different in order to have the results that we want in our life. But the thing about change is that our brains do not care for it. So you could be super excited about your goal. about losing weight, about creating that new program in your business. But if those desires, goals, those outcomes feel, I'm going to say that again feel unknown or unfamiliar to your brain. Your subconscious mind is going to be like, hey, that actually sounds really, really scary. Even though consciously, you're you are desiring the change, desiring to lose the weight, to go to the gym, whatever it is to eat, right? Even though consciously you are desiring, desiring this, your brain's goal is to keep you safe. And the crazy thing is that your brain's definition of safety is just familiarity. Just the unknown. So I want you to think about your life right now. What is your known, your brain doesn't care if your life if you're living your life in an empowering way, or disempowering way, all the brain knows, is what you're doing right now, how you're living your life right now. And your brain is deeming that as safe. So your brain is wired to keep you safe. And to keep things in the familiar. So that change that you want is the unknown known. That is the one of the biggest reasons why your brain is resisting the change. Because what you want is not the safe is not the familiar, or is not the known. Now, I wish I could see you because I want you to give me a thumbs up, if that makes sense. But you can still do that. Give me a thumbs up, thumbs up or high five. So if you're not driving, I want to ask you to do this, I want to ask you to close your eyes. And I want to ask you, why you want to be unstoppable. Why you want to break the rules of reality? How do you want to show up in this world. And it's really important that we get clear on what we do want. Because I can't tell you how many times when I've asked a client, what it is that they do want. They tell me what it is that they don't want. And I don't want you focusing on what you don't want in your life. I want you focusing on what you do want. So knowing what your vision is, what you want to accomplish, how you want to change your health, or your business or your relationship. When my mentor asked all of us, there's a big huge group of us this question, it was so profound for me. What would you do if there were no rules? And you could not fail? What would you do if there were no rules and you could not fail.

Unknown Speaker  13:21  
And the thing about change is that you don't have to change everything in your life at once. All you have to do is just get clear and take on one change. One thing that you want to change. What we're doing is we're creating this map this vision of our life. And if you were like me, I used to think oh, if I become clear on what I want, that means I'm gonna have to change every single part of my life. Don't look at it like that. Just becoming clear on what you want is so important because it helps you focus on what you do want to bring into your reality. So the second reason that's really important in becoming in in changing your subconscious mind, in feeling unstoppable in breaking the rules of reality. Now I missed this. I missed this for like two years. I'm a big Dr. Joe Dispenza fan. Huge, huge, huge, and he really helped me like I feel like I learned hypnosis from Dr. Joe Dispenza. I know he teaches meditation, but I mean it's we're going to the same place we're going to theta brainwave state, and we're making those changes in our beautiful subconscious mind. But I missed this. I want to I just want to share with you that I was watching Cobra Kai Season Four on Netflix, and Ralph mochiko. I used to have the biggest crush on him was teaching his students to not leave to not let anger to not let anger I'm trying to see how I can explain this in a way that will make sense but to not let anger be the driving force. against the division that is happening with the students. So he says to them, you must master your emotions, you must master your emotions. Now this used to trip me the EFF up, it would trip me up every single time because I would be like, how do i Master my emotions? What do I need to do to master my emotions? And I couldn't figure it out. And I don't want this for you. So how you master your emotions? Has that you become aware of your thoughts? Don't throw shoe at me. Becoming aware of your thoughts. We know that from neuroscience, the thought fires before the emotion, the thought creates the feeling. So your thoughts create the way that you feel? And we think 60 to 70,000 thoughts a day 90% of those thoughts are the same thoughts that we thought the day before. And the day before and the day before? That's classic, Dr. Joe Dispenza. So if you're thinking thoughts, like, I'm not good enough, I'm not smart enough. What I say doesn't matter. I can't lose that weight. I can't get healthy, I can't quit drinking. I can't change my business, whatever it is, that your thinking those thoughts, create the way that you feel? And how do you think those thoughts are making you feel?

Unknown Speaker  16:44  
So I have shared this before it was constantly making myself feel bad, with my thoughts without even realizing it. So I don't want that for you. And what I do want to say is that many times our thoughts are on autopilot. Meaning that you're not even aware of what you're thinking, but you are aware of how you're feeling. So if you find yourself feeling sad or frustrated or angry, you can reverse engineer that. And you can be like, what thoughts was I just thinking, okay, so that gives you power, because you can change the way that you feel. And I want to teach you a pattern interrupt because this is the way that you can rewire a new thought into your brain. One, you become conscious of your thoughts, you become aware of your thoughts, too. Sometimes those thoughts are going to be automated. So you're not going to know what you're thinking, but you know what you are feeling. So three, I want you to stop the thought. I want you to move your attention to a thought that you do want to believe about yourself. I am unstoppable. I'm a badass, I can do anything that I set my mind to. You want your new thought to be present tense and positive. So if you tell yourself what you want to believe enough times, it becomes automated. And then that's when you break the rules of reality because you start to feel like a badass in the world. You start to feel so incredible. And you end up if you know for me, I can just tell you I busted through all kinds of bullshit, all kinds of limitations. All kinds of crap that wasn't true. And I have skyrocketed in so many different ways. Because I constantly tell myself what I want to believe. Okay, so here's the thing. Here's what I'm gonna say. Even if it's not completely true yet, even if it's not true when I first started my my practice as a Hypnotherapist. I knew I had certain gifts, but I certainly wasn't a badass at the time. But I knew that if I kept telling myself that I was that I would become a badass hypnotherapist and what do you think I am right now? I'm hoping everybody's saying bad. So where people get stuck with this tool, with this pattern interrupt is because they don't feel differently. They don't do it enough times to feel differently. So they stop. So what I want to say is if you are committed to training forming your life and wanting to believe something different wanting to feel differently about yourself or about working out, or about your business or about your relationships or about health. Continue to repeat what you do want to believe, you must repeat it in order to believe it. And this is how you feel better internally. Not externally, you're not feeling better, because there's a new client or new house or new car and or money. This is how you begin to give yourself that internal validation. I am a badass, I do believe in myself. And if you keep doing it, you will rewire your brain. This is self direct directed neuroplasticity. This is the first layer the first step to my work. So remember, the brain does not like change. And if you have told yourself enough times that you're not smarter, then you're not good at something or that you can't, you know, whatever it is that you continue to say, I want you to know that you're programming that into your mind, this becomes your known, you're familiar, and your brains job is to keep you in the safe. And in the familiar.

Unknown Speaker  21:27  
So what I'd like to talk to you about now, his identity of the four we move on, I just want to say that I'm super excited to be sharing this with you. Because it's powerful stuff, the tools that I'm teaching, you are life changing. And when we can look at our identity, and our identity identity aligns with who we want to be, and how we want to live our lives and show up in the world. Oh my gosh, it's incredible. So I describe identity as how you feel about yourself and how you view yourself. And do you have the identity of a healthy person? Do you have the identity of a successful entrepreneur, or whatever it is for you. Because I have hypnotized 1000s of people. I know what works. I know what doesn't work. And I teach clients and hypnotherapist truly how to make the change. Because if you're not getting the results that you want in your life, maybe it's in relationships, maybe it's in health, maybe it's with wellness, maybe it's in your business, it's because you're not that kind of person at the identity level. And part of long lasting transformation is changing your identity and creating that new identity. I'm going to share with you that when I first started doing this work, and I was like changing my identity, our identity, I'm gonna say the definition is how we feel about ourselves how we view ourselves in the world. And I did not see myself as very powerful back then. So what I want you to know is that you cannot outperform what you really believe about yourself. So changing your identity is so powerful. And the fastest way that I know how to change identity is through hypnosis. Because we're accessing your subconscious mind. We're changing the way that you believe the way that you think the way that you feel about yourselves. But I do want to say that even with hypnosis, it's not a magic pill. Everybody thinks that they become unconscious, and then they wake up and they're all fixed. We can change the way that someone feels. But if we don't change their thinking, and a lot of hypnotherapist, we're doing great things in the world. We don't know this piece. And this piece can mean that our clients revert back to old behaviors. So changing the way that they think, and their identity. So I had one client say to me, Mary Lou, I've been trying all the things. Why don't I do the things that I know that I'm supposed to do? I mean, how many of you have felt this way? One of the reasons is because again, it's it's fear based. Remember, the brain loves familiarity, and the brain deems familiarity as safety. So not eating right, can be considered safe for the brain. Does that make sense? For me it was alcohol. And then the not eating right or the drinking too much? becomes a habit. So, here's what I want you to know. And this is really, really important is that our clients? And, and, and you might look at yourself, you might look at these behaviors, and you might beat yourself up, not realizing that it's happening subconsciously for you. Okay, so you're probably going, what the heck does she mean? She does she mean, your brain might be wired to think and act in a way that will not produce the results that you want, no matter how hard you try. So I want you to know that part of this is not your fault, you may not even be aware of why you keep making the same decisions. So when we try to change, oh, this is the other huge thing is that we have these neuro chemicals. So our thoughts create the way that we feel, and the way that we feel communicates these neural chemicals to ourselves. So at a cellular level, our bodies can become physiologically can become addicted to certain emotions. Okay. And this is why

Unknown Speaker  26:20  
this is why people have these self sabotaging patterns, we're going to dive into this more in this workshop that I'm going to invite you to, but how we think so I want you to think about this. Are you a person that sad all the time, or you're a person that's angry or frustrated all the time, how we think can become habitual, it's like a habit, everything's a habit. This is classic, Dr. Joe Dispenza, and Jim Horton, everything is a habit. So if you get used to thinking a certain way, you get used to feeling a certain way. And once you become aware of the mind, and the nervous system, and the body, and the neural chemicals that are happening, when you're trying to make transformation, or change or create a new habit in your life, then you can take full responsibility, then you can understand what you're really up against. So there are a lot of factors that can make it challenging. So the last thing that I want to talk to you about is our beliefs. Okay, so what do we believe about the thing that we're trying to change in our life, the definition of a belief is a repeated, I'm gonna say this, again, is a repeated thought, or repeated feeling, a repeated thought, a repeated feeling, the decisions that you make, the actions that you take, and the results that you have in your life, or from your beliefs, and your habits. We're gonna talk more about habits in another episode, because I'm giving you a lot here, your beliefs, your beliefs are everything, everything that you have in your life, is because you believe it. So I'm going to say that, again, everything that you have in your life, is because of what you believe about your relationships, about money, about your business, about your job. And what I want to say to you about beliefs are that they were formed by our programming, how we were raised, how we were conditioned, want to remind you, I talked about this in an earlier episode, everything that you saw and heard and everything that you were told, and exposed to how you were raised. And what was modeled to you went into your brains, unedited. So from the ages of zero to seven, we were all subconscious. We lived in our subconscious mind, our prefrontal cortex, the conscious part of our mind was still being developed, the analytical part of our mind was still being developed. So it just all went into our brains and edited. And maybe you heard things like little girls should be seen and not heard, or money is the root of all evil, or who do you think you are, however you were conditioned? Whatever you were told, was programmed into your subconscious. And those subconscious patterns are the belief systems that are driving your behavior today. I know that I've said that throughout this podcast episode in many different ways. So one of the things I love to do is talk to groups and to clients about money. Money, because I understand now that the beliefs that I used to have about money are mucking me up. Our beliefs that we have about every single part of our life are so important. So one of the ways to begin to change this is to find out what you believe.

Unknown Speaker  30:26  
Okay? What you believe. And when you become aware of what you really do believe it is such a gift. So in this workshop that I'm inviting you to, I have specifically developed my own process on how to reprogram your subconscious mind with your new beliefs that you want to have in your life. It's my own process that I've created, it is very successful. And I'm excited to teach it. So lastly, I want to talk about hypnosis, because I want everyone to know how amazing hypnosis is. I want the whole world to know the power of this non invasive, non pharmacological, but incredibly powerful tool, this incredibly powerful tool. And this is where you begin to bend reality to, to perform at a peak performance, to achieve your goals to skyrocket for your outcomes to be so exponential. I shared earlier that the brain is afraid of change. And the question becomes, how do we communicate with the subconscious, that the future that we desire is safe? Because remember, the brain doesn't like change. One of the most incredible ways to do this is with hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of focused awareness. I always say that it's a gift because we access your more of your mind more of your potential, and we access your subconscious mind. We already talked about how incredibly powerful the subconscious is. In hypnosis, we're bypassing your conscious mind and we're getting right in there. We're able to rewire to reprogram to recode how you think and how you feel and how you act, your beliefs, your identity, the habits that you want in your life, the outcomes that you want. So there was a study that was done by Alfred Barrios hypnotherapy and reappraisal. It's a psychotherapy theory, research and practice study. And it really illustrates how powerful hypnosis is. They found this there, they found that 600 sessions of psychotherapy resulted in an average of 33% improvement. The same study found that six sessions of hypnotherapy resulted in a 90 in an average of 93% improvement, on average. So hypnosis is so powerful. It's been endorsed by the National Institute of Health, the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, major research universities around the world, one of my favorite neuroscientists, Andrew Huberman, he has a podcast, check it out. Tell him I sent you His way. I'm gonna have him on my podcast. But he speaks about the power of hypnosis all the time. So what I'm trying to say is that hypnosis is really starting to take off. We are rewiring those disempowering beliefs and those self sabotaging patterns. Also, in January, I'm going to be inviting everyone to a seven day train your brain habits challenge, we kick off January 12. But you can go to my website to find out more information. And also, I will let everybody know who's following some following me. So make sure you're following me. And also, you can visit Mary Lee So then what happens when you begin to program your mind with your new beliefs and your new identities, identity and your new habit is that your life begins to change.

Unknown Speaker  34:37  
Your beliefs are changing, your identity is changing. And then your focus begins to change because now you're focusing on your vision on what you really want. You're no longer focusing on those self sabotaging patterns or those fears, and then your attitude changes feeling more empowered. And then you're taking, and you know, your attitude, you know, you're finding that you're inspired. And your attitude dictates your actions. So then you're finding yourself making these clear decisions, you're finding that you're trusting yourself that you are taking that inspired action, that you are creating the success that you want in your life, and then the income and the impact that goes with it, and I am a living example. You take the action, those aligned actions, with your vision, with what you really want in your life and in your business. And then it becomes automated. Hypnosis is catching on. It's medically proven, it's neurologically proven, it's scientifically proven, it is the fastest way to reprogram your subconscious mind. Alright. Thank you so much for staying on. I know this episode was a little bit longer, but I wanted to give you some tools. And then I wanted you to understand why learning subconscious reprogramming is so important. So I've just taught you brain tools on building new neural networks in your brain. But I want to teach you more. And if you are interested in diving deeper, I want to invite you to this workshop that I am doing January 13, at five o'clock Pacific Standard Time, the link to sign up for this workshop will be in the show notes.
