From our earliest years, we all acquire blind spots in the way we perceive, feel, and think—and they profoundly affect us throughout our lives. Through emerging research in psychology and neuroscience, personal stories, and hands-on exercises and practices, this book will help you to understand how we get them, how to bring them to light, and how to work with that newfound awareness to transform all of your experiences.

Full Description

Do you ever feel like you're experiencing your life at only a fraction of its true clarity and depth?

Are your days dominated by a single emotion such as fear, sadness, anger, or disappointment?

At work or in your personal life, do you find yourself facing similar relationship patterns or conflicts again and again?


From our earliest years, we all acquire blind spots in the way we perceive, feel, and think. Driven by our biology, life experiences, cultural messages, and physical environment, they profoundly affect us throughout our lives.
 
This informative and practical guide invites us to understand: how we get them, how to bring them to light, and how to work with that newfound awareness to improve our lives.
Here, author Kelly Boys presents emerging research from many fields of psychology and neuroscience, personal stories, and a wealth of hands-on exercises and practices to help us identify, welcome, and transform our own hidden domains.
Join her to explore:

  • What we miss and how we miss it
  • Attentional blink—gaps in our sensory awareness and our astonishing potential to perceive more in each moment
  • Decoding your unconscious stories—how they filter the truth and influence you
  • Hacking your intuition—why our gut instincts are not always accurate, and ways to get it right more often
  • The defended self—uncovering the core beliefs that shape your emotional landscape
  • Using moments of crisis to reveal especially elusive blind spots
  • Falling in love, “crushing,” cheating, and wholehearted loving—shining a light into the wilderness of intimate relationships
  • Three biases that sabotage our judgment and how to counter them
  • Self-compassion, welcoming, and vulnerability—keys to clearer self-perception
  • Flow states—becoming fully immersed in what you do without the filters that diminish your natural way of perceiving and being
  • Seeing yourself as others see you—safely engaging with someone you trust to gain greater self-awareness
  • Illuminating the biggest blind spot of all—the illusion of an isolated and separate self, and how to free ourselves from the traps it creates
  • Chapter-by-chapter practices—somatic, contemplative, and mindfulness-based—for self-discovery and change

Once we recognize our blind spots, we can't unsee them. We release ourselves from unnecessary suffering and begin to experience each moment more richly. With The Blind Spot Effect, you're invited to illuminate what is right in front of you and within you—for greater wonder, joy, and fulfillment.
