She explains that the sub-conscious mind creates rules with which people navigate the world.

Many people don’t feel good enough as a result of these internalised rules and emotionalised thoughts, Cavé adds.

According to Cavé, self-reflection and mindfulness are key changing sub-conscious thoughts.

It’s not really a fear of success, it’s a fear of breaking the rules that we have for ourselves.

The job of the sub-conscious is to keep you emotionally safe.

— Jeanie Cavé, clinical psychologist

We distort, we deflect or deny. We tend to retain these rules that we have for ourselves and the world around us.

A pattern of brainwaves is required to change these sub-conscious rules.
