Key Takeaways:

  • On her own spiritual journey, Dr. Campbell became interested in studying the unconscious mind while reading eastern and western medicine. She became fascinated by the way that science actually starts off as philosophy and turns into science and the idea of consciousness and unconsciousness to study the power of the mind became her main focus of study and research.
  •  Dr. Campbell feels strongly about educating people on the way that the brain works. The key thing she wants people to understand is knowing the way the brain works so we understand our own behavior and others behavior. It’s also important to understand that most of what our brain does is unconscious and that’s why we can do things without really thinking about them. 
  • Memory is dynamic and it can be easy to create false memories in our minds by hearing things from other people and soon enough your memories and theirs can be mixed together.
