#13: Nobody can push a button you don’t have: Removing inner thorns with Dr. Eric Bean

November 4, 2020 in

Nobody can push a button you don’t have: Removing inner thorns with Dr. Eric Bean



During this episode of the Coaching Through Stories podcast, host Dr. Eric Bean coaches us on how to free ourselves from the habitual emotions, thoughts, and energy patterns that limit our consciousness using Michael A. Singer’s book “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself.” Learn how to free yourself from limitations, transcend your perceived boundaries, and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving self-realization and happiness.

Key Points:

  1. Removing an inner thorn is doable but it’s not always easy.
  2. The key to removing the thorns is through self-awareness and looking within.
  3. Face the thorns head-on and do the inner work first. Nothing changes until you do.

Episode Highlights:

  • Many people resort to merely adjusting their lives rather than addressing their thorns.
  • The ability to see a broader perspective is crucial because it will enable you to see your thoughts alongside the rest of the situation.
  • When you can see things from a broader perspective, it’s easy to see thoughts for what they really are—a transient piece of data that you can choose to respond to or not.
  • It is important to remember that you are not your thoughts. Therefore, you don’t have to be led by them.
  • Awareness of your thorns is important so you can minimize their impact.
  • If you address the thorns underneath the surface, theoretically, you won’t have any negative thoughts to deal with.
  • The first step to rewiring the brain is to examine the thoughts and emotions that show up. 
  • When making a commitment to look within, you can try helpful techniques like journaling.
