When was the last time you felt like you were in flow state? You know, that feeling you get when time seems limitless, your creative juices and ideas are free flowing, and your energy is buzzing at a higher vibration. Has it felt like forever? Well if so, you’re going to love today’s conversation.
My special guest today is The Brain Guy – Scott Robinson and he’s simplifying how to get into the flow. He believes in one simple truth: whatever you are looking to achieve in life, it’s your brain and your nervous system working together that control your life’s outcomes.
Therefore, when you tap into your subconscious mind (which accounts for 95% of your total brain processing), you unlock a higher intelligence that’ll help you quickly and easily transform stress, resolve trauma faster, and get back to thriving. So, more joy, satiated contentment, pleasure, and abundance on a deeper level… These are all the things you can experience when you get in the flow.
My special guest today is Scott Robinson and he’s simplifying how to get into the flow.
We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:
- How he defines “flow state” and what’s actually happening in your brain when you’re “in the flow”
- What effect stress has on the brain and the body and how to spot it
- Athletes train to achieve “high performance” – he shares what he has learned whilst working with them, specifically with understanding the brain as the “control center” in conjunction with the nervous system
- …and ultimately, he talks about the subconscious mind: what it is, how it works, and (finally) understanding that it is governing your actions and (in my words) your “1000 daily choices.” When you do, you can change your life for the better.
This conversation was so cerebral and deep, I’ve decided to split it into two parts. Part one this week and part two next week, so we all have time to simmer on the ideas he shares, talk to others about it, and see what small changes you can make in your work and life that’ll help you get into the flow more often.
So make sure to have a journal and pen handy while listening to this one. I’m fairly certain you’ll want to jot down a few things along the way, as did I.
Bottomline, when we achieve flow state, our life is buzzing with possibility. I’m thrilled to share this conversation with you and look forward to hearing what you think about it all soon!
