Thais Gibson, a PhD candidate with over 13 certifications and modalities such as CBT, NLP, somatic experiencing, internal family systems, and shadow work. Thais has nearly a decade of experience running a successful private practice and has engaged with over 30,000 clients through individual sessions, workshops, and an educational platform.

Thais specializes in integrated attachment theory, a framework that combines traditional attachment theory, developmental psychology insights, and potent subconscious reprogramming techniques. The focus of this episode is on the power of the subconscious mind, the impact of trauma, and how to achieve goals by aligning the conscious and subconscious mind.

The Impact of Trauma

Trauma is a universal experience that affects everyone at some point in their lives. Thais emphasizes that trauma does not have to be a major event, but can also be the accumulation of smaller experiences over time. These experiences can create deep-seated beliefs and emotional patterns that shape our thoughts, behaviors, and decisions.

Thais explains that our subconscious mind plays a significant role in our daily lives, with approximately 95% to 97% of our decisions being made at the subconscious level. This means that our emotions, beliefs, and past experiences heavily influence our actions, often without us even realizing it.

Many people strive for success in their personal and professional lives, but may unknowingly sabotage themselves due to unresolved trauma and limiting beliefs. It is important to recognize that these challenges are not the individual's fault, but rather the result of subconscious programming. Thais offers hope by emphasizing that there are real solutions available to reprogram the subconscious mind and overcome these challenges.

Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind

To reprogram the subconscious mind and achieve lasting change, Thais recommends a simple but powerful exercise. First, identify the limiting beliefs or negative core wounds that are holding you back from your goals. These beliefs can be uncovered by exploring the emotions and thought patterns associated with your triggers.

Next, find the opposite of each limiting belief and create affirmations or statements that reflect the positive belief. For example, if you believe you are not good enough, the opposite belief would be "I am good enough." Thais suggests using a tool called "auto-suggestion" to reprogram these beliefs. This involves repeating the positive statements, accompanied by vivid imagery and strong emotions, for 21 consecutive days.

In addition to reprogramming limiting beliefs, Thais emphasize the importance of aligning conscious goals with subconscious needs. By understanding and fulfilling your subconscious needs, you can reduce resistance and overcome self-sabotage. Thais suggests identifying your needs by observing your natural behaviors, interests, and spending habits. Then, find ways to integrate these needs into your conscious goals, creating a harmonious alignment between the conscious and subconscious mind.

The Power of Emotions and Pain

Thais challenges the notion that emotions and pain are negative experiences to be avoided. Instead, she encourages embracing emotions as valuable feedback that can guide personal growth and transformation. Emotions provide insight into unmet needs and limiting beliefs, allowing us to address root causes and make positive changes.

By reframing our relationship with pain and viewing it as an opportunity for growth, we can approach challenges with curiosity and resilience. Thais shares that some of the most powerful lessons and transformations can arise from moments of pain and adversity.

Thais Gibson's insights into the power of the subconscious mind and the impact of trauma offer a new perspective on personal growth and transformation. By reprogramming limiting beliefs, aligning conscious goals with subconscious needs, and embracing emotions as feedback, individuals can overcome self-sabotage and achieve their desired outcomes.

Remember that your subconscious mind is a powerful tool that can work for you or against you. By harnessing its potential and understanding its influence, you can unlock new levels of success and fulfillment in all areas of your life.
