Excerpts from a weekly e-newsletter by Beverly Nadler
You Create With The Energy Of Your Mind
It’s vital to understand how your mind functions because you literally “create” your life with the energy of your mind. Everything that exists is energy and all forms of energy have their own rate of vibration (called frequency). ALL energy is electro-magnetic. You “create” by vibrating your magnetic energy field into the magnetic energy field of the universe (quantum physics calls it “the unified field of energy”). Then, by the Law of Attraction, your energy field attracts to you the people, things, conditions, situations, circumstances and events that you are in vibrational harmony with. These become YOUR LIFE. (For further clarification, please visit my website and read the articles, link provided below.)
To change your life, you have to change your vibrations. To do that, you must “change your mind.” Below is a review of what we covered in the last newsletter, followed by information about the critical faculty, the “barrier” of the mind that creates so much resistance to change.
CONSCIOUS MIND – chooses, decides and is supposed to “think.” It is the only part of you that has free will. Unfortunately, this is the aspect of the mind most people don’t use.
SUBCONSCIOUS MIND – functions like a computer. It’s programmed with the instructions that tell your body’s immune system and all of its systems and trillions of cells what to do. It is also programmed with beliefs, opinions, concepts, illusions and theories that you have accepted as “true.” Just as computer programs determine outcomes and results, the programs in your subconscious determine the outcomes in your life. Most so-called “thoughts” are really automatic reactions caused by programming.
SUPERCONSCIOUS MIND – also known as Higher Self or Higher Mind. It is the unlimited part of you that “knows” far beyond the limited perceptions of your conscious and subconscious. It is where intuition and inner guidance come from. It is the ‘still, small voice’ most people rarely pay attention to.
CRITICAL FACULTY — The “Barrier” In Your Mind
The critical faculty is not a physical barrier. However, it is so effective at doing its job, it might as well be made of steel. What is its job? To “protect” you by making sure you never change. It does this by not allowing anything to reach your subconscious unless it agrees with your programming.
This barrier is almost non-existent when we are born. That’s why an infant can learn to swim, a baby can learn several languages, and a toddler can explore to the point of exhausting an adult. Everything the infant is exposed to goes right into the psyche and subconscious programs develop.
There is a saying that goes: “Give me a child until it is five years old and I have him forever.” That’s because, by the age of five, a person has many programs in her computer mind and the critical faculty is well developed. Thus, the child grows to adulthood, functioning according to her programming. Knowing this, we can easily see why it is so important to raise children in an environment of love, self-esteem, trust, confidence, joy and respect.
Once the barrier is established, we experience tremendous resistance to change, both from the inside and outside. That is, we “feel” resistance from within when we try to break a habit. We also find that in spite of our desire to make certain changes, we still attract things we don’t want, seemingly from the outside.
As a result of our programs, we view the entire world through the filter of our subconscious mind. This is why people programmed for failure interpret the same events very differently than people programmed for success. Below is a story that illustrates this.
Two men were sent to sell shoes in a third world country where the natives did not wear shoes. One man was appalled and called his boss demanding that he be given another territory, because it would be impossible to make any sales as “no one in this country wears shoes.” The other man joyfully called his boss to thank him for this extraordinary opportunity. He knew he would make an enormous amount of sales, because “no one in this country wears shoes!”
Because of the critical faculty, it can be very challenging to reprogram the subconscious. One way to break through the barrier is with “fascination.” The media spends billions of dollars to capture your mind and fascinate you. Note the imagery, music, dance, lights, color and sensory stimulation of every kind in TV commercials. The images and words evoke emotion, passion, or total dissatisfaction with yourself so that you become convinced you MUST buy “xyz” product or you will be a failure for the rest of your life.
BY-PASSING THE BARRIER/REPETITION AND REINFORCEMENT
You can also BY-PASS your mind’s critical faculty and go DIRECTLY to the subconscious by agreement (such as agreeing to hypnosis) or with subliminal messages. Once you have access to the subconscious, you can reprogram it.
You got programmed in the first place through repetition and reinforcement. That’s how you learned your name, how to eat, to dress yourself, spell, read and do math, drive a car, use a phone, fax and computer, plus many life and career management skills. In addition, you “learned” confidence (or lack of confidence), you developed a self-image (good, bad or indifferent) and you accepted beliefs about money, health, relationships, etc. You also learned your prejudices and judgments (who, me?).
RE-programming also requires repetition and reinforcement. It is far easier to reinforce negative programs than positive ones, simply because much of our culture thrives on negative data. In order to prevent reinforcing negative programs, it is important for the subconscious to receive positive, success-oriented messages as often as possible.
