The Birth of the Term ‘Alpha Unleashed’
Imagine tapping into a zone in your brain that helps you express yourself freely, authentically, powerfully!
Nadine has been public speaking for over 40 years, and she loves it. Being on stage in front of a roomful of people is ‘home’ to her. According to Nadine, Despite decades of experience, she still gets extremely nervous, to the point that her mouth is parched, and her heart is pounding in her ears. Her eyes are blurry, and her brain is foggy. She has always been prepared with notes, cue cards, PowerPoints, etc., but those tools have never allayed and of her fears.
One day at a personal growth seminar in 2018, Nadine got up and spoke impromptu, and the miracle of all miracles happened. All those symptoms of nervousness persisted but when she started to speak, she realized that the fogginess she had been experiencing was actually a different state of consciousness. According to Nadine, she was in the Alpha wave zone in the brain – a relaxed, creative state. It is more well-known as the daydreaming state. She then allowed herself to settle there and the words came pouring out exactly as she had hoped they would. She relaxed and immediately, felt exuberant, connected to the audience, and it was so powerful. Nadine’s self-esteem got a huge boost and she felt free. After she got off the stage her personal growth coach said to me, “WOW! Where did that come from? You were a different person up there that I did not recognize. You were UNLEASHED!”
And hence, the term was born that Nadine uses to explain the zone that she wants to teach you about in this podcast so that you can access and dwell in it allowing you to be your best, creative, authentic, elevated, esteemed self!
