Molly What You're Craving



Recognizing Your Wise Mind

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you just experienced a deep knowing about something? Needed to end a relationship? Needed to begin a different career? Needed to break up with sugar? This is your wise mind speaking to you. Molly is talking allabout the wise mind we all have, what it is, and how to interact with it.In its most basic sense, Molly likens the wise mind to your gut feeling. Like Olivia Pope, herself, it is just a sureness that you have about something. But why is this such a big deal? For too long Molly has heard people say that they can’t trust themselves with certain food or even having a scale in their house. If we want to be the best versions of ourselves, then we can not afford to have that lack of trust. Enter the wise mind.Molly explains in the episode that when we are in wise mind, binging is not a thing. Our wise mind will tell us what we can handle and, in essence, we automatically get that trust in ourselves back. With some mindfulness practice of meditation and some time, our wise mind may be the greatest gift we could ever seek out for ourselves.Tune in!

Episode Quotes

“Urgency is never wise mind… If it can’t wait, it’s not wise.” –Molly Carmel
