Laura Palmer, Founder and Chief Mindshifter of Bridgenosis, discusses the impact deception can have on our lives and businesses and what to do about it. She speaks from her experiences as a mental performance coach for mindful leaders and athletes.
Many of her clients are highly perceptive people who can easily read others and even pick up on their emotions. Yet, they have experienced blind spots in their deception detecting capabilities. Maybe you can relate to some of these scenarios:
- Sometimes you don’t hear your inner-GPS going off at all.
- Sometimes you hear it, but you don’t want to believe it, so you push it down.
- Sometimes you hear it but question it because you feel confused.
Here are some examples of how this can impact you:
- If you run an organization, you may hire unreliable, unqualified or untrustworthy people. You may even allow in a sabotage type.
- If you step into a leadership role in a new organization, you may get manipulated by someone who is good at being the golden child to the right people and yet is actually sabotaging things.
- For partnerships or client selection, you may have a blind spot that leads you to engage when you should not.
You may attract romantic partners and/or friends who deceive you into trusting them and then turn emotionally abusive.
Debunking deception isn’t just about seeing through and avoiding people who are intentionally trying to deceive you. It is also about being able to trust yourself in all relationships. Even in your best relationships, there are times when your GPS guides you to say no, but if you betray your GPS, things will be rocky. Essentially you are deceiving yourself and them by not following your inner-voice, but it’s not as though there is malicious intent.
This episode focuses more on the situations where you are unable to guard against untrustworthy people. We discuss the subconscious patterns that cause your blind spots and how to reprogram them.
Below in Episode 8, you will have a chance to reprogram the subconscious patterns discussed in Episode 7-do NOT listen while driving or doing anything. We recommend (but not require) you also listen to “Trust My Internal Compass” before or within the same week of listening to Episode 8 for more benefit. Register here for access to this additional free audio.
Please do NOT listen to this episode while driving or doing anything. It is designed to relax you and even help you sleep. Only listen while sitting or lying down in a safe and peaceful space.
Episode 8 is designed to relax and help you tap into and reprogram your subconscious mind so that you can more easily hear, trust, and follow your internal compass when it comes to detecting deception. It also helps you release some of the guilt patterns discussed in Episode 6 that block your financial flow. This is a powerful episode that will help you shift deeper with repeated listenings. Once your mind reprograms these patterns, it won’t need to again.
However, there are more patterns you will want to shift. To shift additional patterns, which will expand your connection between your GPS and your subconscious, explore this site. There you will find a mostly self-guided program under the Entrepreneur section of the site, a deeper foundational mindshift program via SKYPE with Laura Palmer (includes the self-guided program but is more hands on), and leadership development and other public speaking services.
