I’m here today with Peter Crone, who does amazing work around subconscious beliefs, past trauma, and patterns from childhood. Since I shared some of my trauma, I’ve received follow-up questions about tangible things we can do to heal, which is why I wanted to have Peter on the podcast!
Peter’s story is fascinating — his mother passed away when he was seven, and his father when he was 17. This led him to a fear of loss, which was triggered when his first romantic relationship ended. He faced a lot of sleepless nights until he realized that life is uncertain and the answer to most of his problems was found in three simple words: I don’t know.
He went on to explore how the mind influences our lives and works with professional athletes, entertainers, and all kinds of global organizations around this concept.
In this episode, Peter challenges the subconscious patterns that show up in our adult lives. We also delve into consciously interacting with our children so that maybe they can enter adult life with fewer subconscious patterns. I hope you enjoy this episode!

This podcast is sponsored by Wellnesse.It’s my personal care brand of products that I created when I realized that some of my friends and family members were still using some pretty toxic personal care products simply because they worked better. I set out to create truly natural products that outperformed conventional alternatives, and Wellnesse is the result. Our super popular whitening toothpaste has been helping families create healthier oral microbiomes for a couple of years now. And our hair food, hair care nourishes the scalp from the outside in, which is why we get so many testimonials about hair regrowth and thicker, healthier hair. But today, I’m excited to tell you about our brand new silk floss. Most floss is actually plastic and can be coated with some pretty unsavory ingredients that you’re rubbing directly into your gums. Since what goes in the mouth goes into the rest of the body, we created a truly natural silk-based floss that is gentle, yet effective at keeping your teeth and gums clean and fresh. Check out our floss and all of our products at wellnesse.com.
