The subconscious mind has enormous influence over the day-to-day living of our lives. We each have patterns that were formed at the very early stages of our lives, but these continue to still play out decades later, and not always in healthy ways. In her book, The Seven Gates: Seven Steps Beyond Self-Awareness, Frances Yahia explores a model for understanding why we attract patterns in our lives and how we can shift the subconscious to stop repeating unhealthy, subconscious patterns. The result is a way of living life consciously and authentically, being the truest version of ourselves.
