How Thoughts Become Things: Mastering Your Mind Through Focused Intentions and Actions with Dr. Marina Bruni & Doug Vermeeren


Original Air Date Wednesday, December 9, 2020


The average human adult thinks 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day. If each of our thoughts was an intention toward manifesting what we want from life, we could be in a constant state of joy.

But, because of past and present programming, our subconscious thoughts lead us through our days. We rely on the ego to keep us safe. What if we could access more of our brains and master it by rewiring our synapses? To learn more about how thoughts become things, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two changemakers about the movie, and the concept of, How Thoughts Become Things. Dr. Marina Bruni shares the process of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and how we can master our brains through intentions. And, Doug Vermeeren discusses his new movie The Secret and how changing our network of people uplevels our net worth.
