“I think I have always been a healer first. It feels like my life’s assignment… my purpose. Each day, I endeavor to bring healing to everyone with whom I come in contact. I believe everyone has this capacity to bring healing for themselves and others. I’m here to wake them up to that capacity.” ~Dr. Maiysha

✔ The three views of “perception” for improving relationships (home and workplace).

✔ How to uncover the root of our doubts and fears to blast through to new heights in our personal and professional lives.

✔ Why challenges our beliefs is important for growth.

✔ What to think about when “resistance” comes up in our life.

✔ The importance of celebrating our wins, but keeping our eye on our end-goal.

I want to welcome you back to Season 9 of The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, where we cover the science-based evidence behind social and emotional learning (for schools) and emotional intelligence training (in the workplace) with tools, ideas and strategies that we can all use for immediate results, with our brain in mind.  I’m Andrea Samadi, an author, and an educator with a passion for learning and launched this podcast to share how the understanding of our complex brain transfers into our everyday life and results. Each concept we cover here I’m hoping will help you, wherever you might be listening to this podcast in the world, just as much as these ideas are helping me personally and professionally.

For today’s episode #289, we are meeting with Dr. Maiysha Clairborne, an author, TEDx Speaker, Podcast Host of the Black Mind Garden Podcast, a Master Practitioner of NLP and Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy.

I don’t think I need to explain why I wanted to speak with Dr. Clairborne when you click to the first page of her website, and she has the words EDUCATE, EMPOWER, ENRICH and ELEVATE in bold letters on the first page. She lives what she teaches, as these words come to my mind when I looked at her picture on the front of her press kit as I wondered where I would even begin with the questions I want to ask her. It was funny because she had some suggested topics included and I read through them, and thought “I want to know ALL of these topics!”

So that’s where we will begin. Let’s welcome Dr. Maiysha Clairborne, and see what we will learn together to elevate and empower us to new heights and leadership.


Welcome Dr. Maiysha Clairborne! Thank you for making my life so much easier as a podcast host. Preparing for this interview was easy with all of the information you’ve got out in the world. I wasn’t kidding when I said in the backstory that I want to know EVERYTHING you’ve suggested as questions for me.


Can you give us a bit of your background that takes us to where you are today? What inspired you to want to educate, empower, enrich and elevate others? This says a lot about who you are.

What about hypnosis and timeline therapy? I’m a full believer in hypnosis, but what is timeline therapy?

Q1: It’s been a few years since I’ve used them, but I did use an affirmation in my early 20s to help me to change my identity as a young woman, in business. Is there a better way? Tell me there is, because I didn’t like saying the same thing over and over again in front of the mirror until I finally believed it.

Q2: I love that you have some tips for improving our relationships in the workplace. What would you say would be some common workplace problems that you typically see, and how would you suggest solving them?

Q3: Can you explain your perception activity that you explain in your TEDx? I’ve always thought it to be important to use this faculty of mind, to see beyond what our 5 senses can see, and look at a situation you might be struggling with from someone else’s point of but you took this exercise to another level than I’ve ever seen before. When I’m in conflict with someone, I’ve always tried to step into their shoes, and see what they see, feel what they feel, but what are we missing if we only step into their shoes seeing their perspective and mine?

Q4: For those of us who just want to improve and be better versions of ourselves, what would you say about some of the doubts and fears that we might have that we might not even be aware of? How do we uncover the ROOT of our doubts and fears and discover what they are so we can move beyond them?

Q5: Belief change. This is a huge topic for me on this podcast. I talk about shifting our paradigms all the time, and I can tell you a few areas that I’m shocked where my beliefs have changed over the years, (specifically around diet and exercise). What do you think we should know about our beliefs?

Q5B: So when I’m resisting with something or someone says “try it this way” and I want to try something new, but their way is too far off from how I would be doing what I’m doing. How can we better navigate resistance so we can grow with new ideas?

Q6: Why do you think the goal-setting system is broken, (what part specifically) and what are better ways to set our goals?

Q7: Another incredible topic. How do you suggest creating the balance between celebrating your wins and staying focused? I know both are important.

Q8: What programs and services do you offer to help others?

Q9: Is there anything important that I’ve missed?

Dr. Clairborne, I want to thank you for taking the time to come on the podcast today, and sharing the years of knowledge, and tools to help empower us to improve ourselves at home and in our workplace. Is the best place for people to find you, your website?
