Neuroscientist: Do This Every Morning to Maximize Manifestation

"When I changed how I looked at myself, it changed how I looked at the world and that changed how the world reacted to me."

Today, we sit down with neurosurgeon and author Dr. James R. Doty to explore the fascinating science of manifestation and how it connects to our beliefs, emotions, and actions. Dr. Doty breaks down the difference between the law of attraction and manifestation, shining a light on the immense power of our subconscious mind. He shares how heart vibrations are stronger than brain waves and explains why changing decades-old belief systems is so challenging. Dr. Doty opens up about overcoming limiting beliefs, the crucial role of positivity in shifting our mindset, and how our thoughts and emotions directly influence what we manifest. He also digs into the importance of love versus lack in driving impact, why synchronicities matter, and how we can balance being unattached to outcomes while staying open to magic.
