We can often be our own worst enemies as we move through life and relationships. Negative thoughts may dominate our thinking and create narratives that don’t serve us. Listen to today’s show to learn how to limit the false stories we tell ourselves and connect with your authentic self.

In this episode with Dr. Carolyn Kurle we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Understanding the dynamic between your logical brain and your intuition
  • How societal conditioning influences the decisions we make
  • How to tap into your intuition and use it effectively
  • Recognizing unproductive patterns of thinking and changing the narrative
  • Changing negative beliefs such as unworthiness, inadequacy and more
  • How to learning from your mistakes and thrive during your life’s journey
  • And much more!

Dr. Carolyn Kurle has a PhD from the University of California, Santa Cruz, is a tenured Biology Professor at the University of California, San Diego, and is the author of numerous scientific research articles related to environmental conservation. As a scientist, Dr. Kurle relies on logical thinking, but she also values quieting the mind and fully integrating our feeling, intuitive selves to navigate the flow of life from a place of wholeness.

Dr. Kurle’s work with hundreds of outstanding students at UCSD, many of whom paradoxically struggle to find ease, motivated her to write the book, The Guidance Groove: Escape Unproductive Habits, Trust Your Intuition, and Be True. Her book is an invitation to quiet the false stories in your mind and connect with the wisdom emanating from your intuitive guidance so you may increase your personal authenticity and contentment.
