In this episode, Dr. Thomas shares valuable insights on personal growth, the power of understanding our unconscious beliefs, and the journey of fatherhood. With the belief that growth is not just about adding new experiences but understanding our teachings and coming from a foundation of being whole and good, Dr. Thomas guides us through the transformative process of unraveling old stories and creating a new reality. She emphasizes the importance of conscious parenting and the need to address our emotional baggage before becoming parents.
