The unconscious/subconscious is thought to basically run all aspects of our life. As said earlier this part of us was programmed in utero and especially the first seven years of life. Everything we hear, see, feel, sense, experience from those around us during that time is soaked up indiscriminately and is the program that runs us 90% to 95% of the time. According to this view when we are thinking or engaged in a focused way, the automatic keeps everything going. Hopefully as we explore the multidimensional being we are and keep waking up more and more, we can at least adjust the program to be congruent with our wishes, desires and aspirations, as Bruce Lipton says.
The cells then have memories of these early patterns and keep perpetuating them. If we wonder what our subconscious programming is and want instant information, Bruce Lipton says, look at your life. It is a print out of your program, of all that works and is good as well as, what is a challenge and does not work well. His approach is to re-program the unconscious once the problem/s are clearly identified. He believes this can be done in a matter of minutes with one of the approaches.
Here are a a couple of his ideas for how to reprogram the subconscious. One approach is hypnosis. He recommends audio tape with subliminal suggestion, using ear phones at bedtime. The Theta cycle, a hypnotic state, will then allow the new programming. The Theta brain wave cycle is similar to one achieved in meditation and the one children experience most the first seven years of life.
Another approach is, repetition, building new habits and can include the hypnosis part. These take time and perseverance.
The Belief Change Modification Process is the one he teaches and can take only seven minutes according to him. This process is connected to energy psychology and super learning. I have not experimented with this yet.
For further discussion on all this and much more here are books by Bruce Lipton; Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution, The Honeymoon Effect. There are many You tube programs that I found helpful. Look for ‘Seven Ways to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind’. It may be an interview. There also are good programs in which he describes the mbasic concepts of the Biology of Belief. For some people his delivery can take a bit of getting used to but I find the content fascinating, so no problem for me.
Feel free to skip this part. I add it for those of you who also like some detail. Here are the categories of brain waves. Beta at 14 to 40 Hz; Alpha at 7.5 to 14 Hz; Theta at 4 to 7 Hz; Delta at .5 to 4Hz. There is Gamma at above 40 Hz but is not common and may be related to higher states. Yet to be explored.
There is so much more but this will certainly get you started in your exploration.
Till next time. Leave me a note. I’m wondering who is reading this.
