Adam talks to Dr. Magdalena Baciu about how to unlock the resourceful state of the super consciousness. Magdalena explains the difference between the conscious mind, the unconscious and the super-conscious. Many people have experienced the super-conscious in the form of intuition, inspiration or a “Eureka” moment; but often as a by-product of other thoughts, rather than through deliberate effort. Magdalena explains that perspective is required to create the mental space needed for the super-conscious to do what it does best, and offers tips on how to activate more of your super-conscious mind. She also touches on alchemy and how we can take negative experiences and turn them into something valuable.
