Marisa Peer On How Not Being Enough Is The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity
39:48

The Power Of Believing And Being Enough

Our mind is capable of more than we think

And it begins by asking if you believe whether or not you are enough? Being enough is more than positive thinking because your mind has the power to solve this problem the human race is currently facing.

In this amazingly transformative and highly engaging A-Fest talk, Marisa Peer, voted Britain’s #1 Therapist — whose work includes Hollywood celebrities, Olympic athletes, CEOs and even royalty — brings to the Mindvalley stage heartfelt stories of humanity’s singular biggest problem.

Conventional therapists focus on all of the intricate details of the mind and its array of complications, attempting to diagnose one small problem at a time, sometimes causing negative to no results at all. Marisa Peer, however, looks at the mind’s most basic principles and cuts to the very root of the problem, completely changing people’s lives around in a matter of minutes.

She is, what we call, brilliantly unconventional.

“Changing the world is a big task, but I want to change people. The way to change them is by making them feel they are enough.”
— Marisa Peer

Highlights from the episode:

  • The three insights about your brain that will change your life:
    • Your mind does what it truly thinks you want it to do and what it truly believes is in your best interest
    • The way you feel about any event and the way your mind responds is the result of just two things; the pictures you make in your head and the words you say to yourself
    • To succeed at anything you have to make the unfamiliar familiar, and the familiar unfamiliar
  • Marisa brings up an example of how lottery winners lose everything within 2 years of winning the lottery because of their desire for the familiar
  • The story of how an American celebrity changed his life after meeting Marisa Peer in one afternoon
  • The story of how Marisa helped a successful, but suicidal, British trader to accept a thought she had kept from her painful past
  • The story of Marisa’s daughter, her struggles as an artist in the business and how she creatively changed her perspective with one simple act
  • The story of a plumber who brought Marisa’a simple technique into his home and subsequently changes the lives of his family members
  • Marisa shares three exercises showing the power of the mind
  • She explains the major causes of depression are harsh, hurtful and critical words you say to yourself over and over again
  • The story of a depressed writer, and how he began to learn to accept praise into his life instead of criticism
  • The story of how an actress used the power of her mind to the severe detriment of her health
  • This specific programming Marisa shared is not positive thinking — It is direct, specific, detailed, crystal clear commands and instructions that signal and communicate to your mind in a way that gives you great results with no misinterpretation

Key takeaways on being enough:

  • Make anything that is negative unfamiliar and anything positive really familiar
  • Change the pictures, words, and you will tell your brain exactly what you want
  • Say this, “I have chosen to do this, I’ve chosen to feel great about it and I’m enough.”

Tell your mind a new story and it will respond accordingly. Praise yourself by saying things such as:

  • I am enough and I am happy being enough
  • I am a loving and admirable friend
  • I am clever and amazing
  • I am bold, daring, and creative
  • I am incredibly beautiful/handsome inside and out

Of all the things you tell yourself, remember to repeat the followings words and truly feel its truth:

“I am enough. I’ve always been enough. Now that I know that I am enough, everyone else knows it, too. I will always be enough.”
— Marisa Peer

[Ask Vishen] How To Prepare Our Kids For The Future
04:31

In this Minisode, Vishen discusses the question every parent asks their kids, which is, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

The thing is, the question is outdated and misleading in the world we live in today. Instead of asking your children, "What do you want," there's a more powerful and empowering question you can ask to prepare them for their future.

"Have them open up their mind to a whole field of possibilities and to a life that's about meaning and contribution.”

Ken Wilber On Creating A New Education Model For Mankind
57:16
If we could do a massive reform of global education, what would it look like? This episode is a paradigm-shifting special with legendary modern-day philosopher, Ken Wilber, on how people evolve from kids to adults, the evolution of consciousness. Vishen and Ken will discuss the ideal education model that can help create a healthier planet starting with our children today. Ken writes on transpersonal psychology and integral theory revolving around the synthesis of all human knowledge and experiences. 
 
Here are the highlights and questions raised from the conversation:
  • What will the ideal education model for humanity look like? 
  • The complex combination of a human being is summarized in Ken’s framework of Integral Theory
  • The different perspectives of "I, We, It.”
  • Education today focuses on book smarts over many other categories of intelligences, i.e.:
    • Emotional
    • Moral
    • Values
    • Aesthetic
    • Spiritual
    • Many more…
  • The ongoing culture wars between 3 of the most common values today:
    • Traditional religious
    • Modern science
    • Postmodern multiculturalism
  • Humans today possess profoundly high states of consciousness and awakenings
  • The human identity runs a spectrum from egocentric all the way to cosmocentric
  • The universe, driven by evolution, is creating greater wholeness and unity
  • Am I identified with just myself or with all of reality?
  • Based on Jean Gebser, education is not catering for multiple world views
  • If we were to educate kids and young adults, what would their education look like?
  • There more than seven different types of intelligence as expanded by Howard Gardner
  • What are some learnings we can incorporate into a future school?
  • There are many contradictions that rise from education and one such question is “are there any other cultures that can be considered superior to another?”
  • How can we help our children upgrade their spirituality without being blocked by limited beliefs?
  • Ubiquity University, a break away from traditional education, and builds a holistic education from day one
 
Lean into this episode because it will hit home for everyone listening, especially those of you who are involved in transformational and disruptive education. 
 
The following are resources for more information on how you can help create a future for education:
 
“...We now know human beings have upwards of a dozen different multiple intelligences, most of which are just thoroughly ignored. Education mostly focuses on cognitive intelligence or book smarts, but there are also emotional, moral, values, aesthetic, spiritual intelligence among others, and all of those are incredibly important. They’re all very real. They actually exist. They’re not just theoretical, and they’re all almost completely ignored..."

Mike Dooley On The Universe's Greatest Illusion
35:38
Is happiness really all that matters?
 
Discover how your thoughts becomes things in this week’s episode. Time to break the mindset that caring for material wealth is wrong in the pursuit of happiness. Mike Dooley is a former PriceWaterhouseCoopers international tax consultant, turned entrepreneur, who’s founded a philosophical Adventurers Club on the Internet with members from over 185 countries. His inspirational books emphasizing spiritual accountability have been published in 25 languages and he was one of the featured teachers in the international phenomenon, The Secret
 
Here are the highlights from the discussion:
  • The metaphorical GPS we work with to build our thoughts and goals
  • The sides of the brain to help us define our end results on:
    • Emotions
    • Thoughts
    • Things
  • How your goals might be stopping you from achieving true happiness 
  • The Mike Dooley Matrix of True Happiness: A framework to help you navigate where you are to where your Higher Self wants to be
  • The line from Wallace Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich that gets Mike jumping with excitement
  • Understanding the connection between spirituality and abundance: How money is connected to happiness 
For more information on how you can remove the universe’s greatest illusion from your belief system, do this:

Arianna Huffington On The Pillars of Wellbeing
32:20
Are you balancing on your edge? In this episode, we’re bringing the original call Vishen Lakhiani had with the legendary Arianna Huffington of Huffington Post, for his book The Code of The Extraordinary Mind. Arianna has turned a simple website into a massive force.

  • The 4 Pillars of Thrive:
    • Wellbeing
    • Wisdom
    • Wonder
    • Giving
  • How sleep is a wonder drug that can help you be so much more joyful in life
  • The daily practices Arianna does everyday since her collapse 
  • If Padmasree Warrior, ex-CTO of Cisco, can take a digital detox, so can you
  • How wonder allows us to connect with the mysteries of life
  • Mindfulness, coincidences and time-scapes are all magical parts of having wonder in your life — 
  • It’s time we start celebrating go-givers as much as our culture celebrate go-getters
  • The story of Arianna’s mother, the first “Thrive" role model in her life
  • The one thing that makes Arianna — Arianna
  • The one piece of advice to anyone who aspires to leave a positive impact as she has
  • The 3rd metric is a great reminder for humanity to step back and go within so that we can truly Thrive
  • The 12 steps to Thrive that Arianna lives by (get the poster here)
  • One parting gift from Arianna to every listener and fan out there
 
For more information on how you can start implementing the pillars in your life, do this:
 
As Arianna says,  
 
“Sometimes it can be literally a minute, to just look ahead at my day, fill myself with gratitude for the blessings in my life, set my intentions for the day, it just immediately take this urgency, this false urgency that we bring into our lives that is such unnecessary stress."
