What It’s About:
“For far too long the ancient philosophies of visualization and manifestation have been shrouded in skepticism and suspicion. However, as esteemed neuroscientist, trained psychiatrist and senior lecturer at MIT Dr. Tara Swart shows us in the The Source, our thoughts determine our lives, and either attract the things we want ,or keep them at a distance forever. Thus we have the power to change our destiny – to find wealth, true love, confidence and fulfillment – simply by harnessing the power of our mind.
Do you feel stuck in an unhealthy relationship? Do you find your work boring but worry about leaving? Are you no longer connected to your current friend group but unable to make new friends? Do the words “never” and “always” dominate your thinking? In The Source, Dr. Swart offers the long-awaited proof for why manifestation is the only practice for discovering the job, relationships, love and life we want, and shows us how to finally seize the opportunities that pass us by every single day.”
“Dr. Tara Swart is a neuroscientist and former psychiatrist. She is a senior lecturer at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and Kings College, London, and an executive advisor to some of the world’s most respected leaders in media and business.”
The Take Aways:
After reading The Source you’ll come away with:
- The fact that our brains are incredibly efficient, and this can lead to a life on autopilot.
- The understanding that when we think from a perspective of lack, our primary motivation is fear.
- The importance of being flexible and open to opportunities that come our way.
- How to harness the incredible ability of the brain to change itself, even well into adulthood.
- Practical exercises to give you the patience and ability to build new neural pathways.
- How to be more present in your body and brain to make the best choices and help your emotional regulation.
- The tools to attract what you really want in life.
“Life-changing opportunities pass us by every day. A chance encounter with a potential partner, a comment that could open up a new career; in our frenetic lives such fleeting moments are easily overlooked or dismissed. But with the right help we can train our minds to notice them and to seize them – and learn how to transform a split-second into lasting change. That’s because the things we most want from life – health, happiness, wealth, love – are governed by our ability to think, feel and act; in other words, by our brains.”
In the The Source you will learn how to wake up your brain and unlock your full potential. Using the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience and behavioral psychology, Dr. Tara Swart will show you how to turn off your autopilot and make life happen for you, not to you.
Why you should read this book:
“We all suffer from negative thought patterns and behaviors, from habits that make life easier but aren’t helpful to our happiness, and from emotions that limit our life choices; but if they are determining how you live, then you need to find a way past them.”
Slowly our symptoms of perimenopause began determining how we lived. One of our biggest struggles in perimenopause thus far has been overcoming a dramatic change in mood. From overwhelming negative thoughts to uncharacteristic rage and crippling anxiety, life was happening to us, and not for us. We needed to change. And we needed help.
Leaning on each other became our lifeline; we can’t imagine going through symptomatic perimenopause alone. Medication helped. And changing our mindset, learning to be in the moment, and understanding our ability to actively alter the way our minds work has been significant. We still have bad days. And we still struggle. But mostly, we are genuinely excited for what is to come – the best decades of our lives.
