The Light Inside is a journalistic podcast exploring the journey of everyday people toward beneficial change in their unconscious behavioral patterns. These shifts in behavior empower them to live richer, happier, and more fulfilling lives.
Lingering just below the surface of our conscious minds are patterns of thought, feelings, emotions, and motivations. We aren't immediately aware of them, but they wield a powerful influence over how we behave and react to events in our everyday lives.
We're all on the journey to discover that light inside, the beacon which guides us to live our truest, most authentic selves.
Our program explores the darkest corners of the human mind and reveals how our unconscious patterns play a pivotal role in our ability to make decisions as individuals and as a society.
Unconscious thought patterns are mental processes that occur outside of our conscious awareness. These thought patterns can shape our beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors in powerful ways.
Here are a few ways that unconscious thought patterns can impact our behavior:
- Bias and stereotypes: Unconscious biases and stereotypes can lead us to make snap judgments about people based on their race, gender, age, or other characteristics. These biases can influence our behavior in subtle ways, such as how we interact with others, our decisions, and our attitudes.
- Habits and routines: Many of our behaviors are driven by habits and routines that we have developed over time. These habits can be deeply ingrained in our unconscious mind and can be difficult to break. For example, you may automatically reach for a cigarette or snack when you feel stressed, even if you consciously know that it's not healthy.
- Emotional responses: Our emotional responses to situations are often driven by unconscious thought patterns. For example, you may feel anxious or angry in certain situations without fully understanding why. These emotional responses can shape the way we behave and interact with others.
- Self-perception: Unconscious thought patterns can also influence the way we see ourselves. For example, if you have a deep-seated belief that you are not good enough, this can impact your behavior in many different ways, from holding yourself back in your career to avoiding social situations.
Overall, unconscious thought patterns play a significant role in shaping our behavior. By becoming more aware of these patterns, we can start to identify and change adverse thought patterns that may be holding us back or causing us to behave in ways that are not in line with our values.
