As Ryan points out, ancient thinkers knew a lot about what it means to be human. Even though they were not neuroscientists, and even though they didn’t have access to all the technological and medical advances we have today, ancient writings are filled with wisdom that can help us lead better lives. Just because something is “old” doesn’t mean we can’t benefit from it!

Download my new and improved brain detox app here: https://neurocycle.app SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk about the difference between thoughts and memories. This podcast is part 4 of my series on the different parts of the mind. The mind is made up of trillions and trillions of thoughts. A thought is a real physical thing that occupies mental real estate in the brain and mind. A thought is built into the brain as you use your mind—that is, as you think, feel and choose. Thoughts are located in three different places: your brain, your mind, and the cells of your body.

Download my new and improved brain detox app here: https://neurocycle.app SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this week’s podcast I continue my discussion of the different parts of the mind, and how they are connected. Last week, I spoke about the difference between the nonconscious, subconscious and conscious mind. This week, I am going to talk about how interconnected these three parts of the mind are, and the nature of the nonconscious, “wise” mind. The nonconscious mind is incredible but often misunderstood. Even the word nonconscious is used incorrectly most of the time. Yet it’s worth putting in the effort to try to understand it, because it’s a key player when it comes to mind-management. The more you understand the nonconscious mind, the more you will see that you also have the ability to change your mind.

Download my new and improved brain detox app here: https://neurocycle.app SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk about the interconnected mind, as well as the divisions of the mind and what each part does. In learning about how to use our mind to manage our mind, it helps to understand the divisions of the mind and how these relate to the dynamic nature of thoughts. There are basically two ways of managing the mind: reactively, which generally ends up being messy, or proactively, which is how we clean up our mental mess. Developing a lifelong plan that helps you constantly manage thoughts and their impact is part of a proactive and strategic approach. You can even think of this as “preventative” medicine for your brain!

Download my new and improved brain detox app here: https://neurocycle.app SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I speak with best-selling author, journalist and mental health advocate Robert Whitaker about the myth of the chemical imbalance, the politics of psychiatry and Big Pharma, and why we need to change the way we think and talk about mental health. Whitaker sees his role as a science journalist as someone who is an honest communicator. Science journalism is a public service—it involves presenting real, evidence-based science to the public, not marketing. This role as an honest communicator shaped Whitaker’s work as director of public relations at Harvard medical school, and eventually led him to investigate how medical professionals can delude themselves, how money and business can corrupt medical practice, including psychiatry, and the myth of the chemical imbalance Sign up to Patreon to get access to the full video and audio recording add-free, exclusive downloads, live Q&As, and more: https://www.patreon.com/drcarolineleaf Article mentioned: https://www.madinamerica.com/2022/08/psychiatry-fraud-and-the-case-for-a-class-action-lawsuit/ Read the blog and show notes here: https://drleaf.com/blogs/news/the-great-psychiatry-fraud OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS: -Nootopia: For an exclusive offer for my listeners go to www.nootopia.com/drleafgenius and use drleaf10 during checkout to save 10 percent and get free shipping.

Simply put, enabling is doing something challenging for someone else, while empowering someone means helping and supporting them as they complete the challenging task.

Download my new and improved brain detox app here: https://neurocycle.app SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk about what brain waves are, why they are important and how we can balance our brain waves to improve our mind and brain health. Our brain waves are active all the time because the brain is always active. The brain is active 24/7, 7 days a week! Our brain waves change in terms of how they move through the brain, which is based on what we are thinking, doing and feeling. When slower brain waves are dominant, we often feel tired, slow, sluggish, or dreamy, and are not able to process information or emotions very well. When the higher brain wave frequencies are dominant, we can feel wired or hyper-alert, like there is just too much going on in our brains. A healthy brain tries to balance these extremes.

Has this podcast been sped up? it was unusually fast speech. may just be my devise but I'm wondering if it was a recording fault. only mentioning because it made it very difficult to listen to. 🤔

thank God for the fast forward! basically a giant infomercial with a few bits of somewhat useful information. geeze. almost not worth listening to. Definitely not worth it if you cannot fast forward.

How wonderful that I can now see what I've learned from you in practise! I listen with more deliberation and I can actually visualise the process of thinking, feeling and choosing. I am still an infant in this process so I am so excited at how much more enriched and stronger I will be as I become more practiced at neurocycling. Thank you so much, from me, my family and my friends because we are all gaining from me learning. ❤

Power is internal, silent inner knowing and claiming self. People will not be treated by you unless they have an issue in themselves. They will be drawn to you instead.

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship during my college years. In the beginning I also thought well he has never hit me physically but, that's the insidious nature of such relationships, they manipulate you, make you feel guilty and sudden outbursts of anger and breaking objects. It was a very traumatic experience of my life, I lost my self esteem and confidence. I'm on a healing journey.

the information provided on this podcast is so valuable, some people do not have access to mental health services at least not at such depth and understanding. It's very helpful, thank you

Thank you for your wise words. Your honest, knowledgeable and heartfelt approach to managing the mind is the most helpful guide I have happened across in my years of trying to understand myself, my family and friends. Jacqui 😊

Thank you Caroline and Nicole. I have just discovered both of you after listening to Dr Will Cole's podcast. I have purchased Nicole's book and have just started to do the work. I have witnessed how the brain can change when you nurture your mind by consistently practising gratitude and focused breath work (that I started during covid restrictions in 2020 that left me open and vulnerable to 'stuff' that came up). I am so hopeful that by continuing my personal work I will be able to lead my fullest life and be the parent I need to be rather than the parent who, despite trying really hard, has become a version of her own parents (good and bad!). I think your approaches share commonalities and are complimentary. I can't wait to work through both books and am excited for being able to report back to you. Thank you for YOUR work. 😊 Jacqui
