Barry Nicolaou, who is a best-selling author of The 11 Master Secrets to Business Success and Personal Fulfilment, joins us again to talk about the placebo effect and the connection between the mind, body and spirit.

This week, he discusses what is going on in the world at the moment with the overwhelming amount of information about COVID-19 and how our mind is beginning to turn against us.

And while the mind can work against us, it can also work for us, using the intelligence within us to create the life of our dreams in all eight areas, rather than causing destruction to our mental and physical health.

In this weeks’ podcast, Barry and Sam discuss:

  • How the Placebo and Nocebo effect works
  • How we attract our beliefs
  • How to materialise what you visualise
  • Tips on turning negative thinking into positive thinking
  • How to teach children to use their creative imagination to believe
