Rúna Magnus

Empowering Humans to Be the Change They Want to See in Their World

Our Beliefs Shape Our Perception – Musing About Boxes

Icelandic thought leader Rúna Magnus and I were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. I remember the first time we talked we instantly got absorbed into a veryinspiring conversation about how our beliefs shape our reality, both on a personal level as well as on a grander scheme.

We talked vividly about how our “boxes” can limit and sabotage us, or, on the other hand, how positive beliefs empower us and provide the lens through which we can see beauty, potential, and possibility.


Being the Change

In our interview, Rúna and I dive deeply into the phenomenon of change.

We talk about her decision to follow her heart and passion in 2006, about how to approach change, and about the importance of being aware of our limiting beliefs.

We also speak about the importance of approaching change from the inside out to create transformation and why we change the world when we change ourselves.


The Change Makers, the #nomoreboxes Movement, and the Book

Rúna founded a group of transformational leaders called The Change Makerswhose intention it is to facilitate transformation, so that everyone can become the change they wish to see in their world.

She also created the #nomoreboxesmovement. She says, “The core problem this world is facing are all the boxes we either put people into, or people put themselves into.  As the result of these different boxes, people feel isolated, limited and unempowered.”

You can support the #nomoreboxes movement on patreon.

In November, The Story of Boxes – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, a book that Rúna co-authored with Nick Haines, will be published.
