Episode 158: Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

with Lael Petersen, LCSW, RYT

As humans, we’ve evolved to have strong, often unconscious reactions to thoughts and situations that might cause us to be in danger.  Sometimes we end up internalizing those thoughts and they become limiting beliefs that impact us far beyond what we might initially realize.  Lael Petersen shared some great insights in our conversation about these beliefs as well as why they’re so common and nothing to feel shame around.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How to identify limiting beliefs
  • Techniques to help make the unconscious conscious and start changing beliefs
  • Why this is a process that takes practice and can be slow
  • The value of visualizing and immersing yourself in ideas that help you become the person you want to be.

Her years in private practice combined with her own personal healing journey give her a unique perspective on what it takes to “live our best lives.” She currently leads an on-line community of women dedicated to prioritizing their health and mental health and sees clients privately as well.
