Wellness + Wisdom | Episode 634

How can asking yourself the right questions transform your life within seconds?

Dr. John Demartini | Human Potential: Your Practical + Spiritual Guide To Getting The Life You DesireDr. John Demartini, Polymath and Human Behavior Expert, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom Podcast, episode 634, to enlighten you about how you can make life-changing alterations by simply asking yourself different questions, why trauma is not about what happens to you, and how to make unconscious information conscious.

"The quality of your life is based on the quality of the questions you ask because questions make unconscious information conscious. If you ask the questions, why did this happen to me? Why am I a victim of this? You get a different world than if you ask, how did what happened help me fulfill something meaningful in my life?" - Dr. John Demartini

Power Quotes From The Show

The Right Questions Can Change Your Neurochemistry

"If you know how to ask the right questions and become aware of what you've been unconscious of, you can play with your neurochemistry and then take command of your pharmaceutical business inside your head." - Dr. John Demartini

Practice Gratitude

"Anything you can't say thank you for is baggage. Anything you can say thank you for is fuel. If you're not crying with gratitude on a daily basis, you're missing out on life." - Dr. John Demartini

Trauma Is Your Perception of The Event

"Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is the choice of your perceptions of what happened to you. If you want to master your life, transcend the narrative of the story about being the victim and find the other side of the equation to liberate yourself from the bondage, then turn it into fuel and take off." - Dr. John Demartini
