A very personal introduction
A personal introduction you wont want to miss!
When I say to people that I can make them a very important introduction that will change their lives, they usually look very curiously. Then I tell them that this person is someone who has the biggest influence on their lives whether they like it or not they begin to look a bit nervous or even disbelieving as well. Strange, that they haven’t met this person before if they are so important and influential for them – so they really must know them already, then I explain that they may have caught a glimpse of them now and again but that it can take time to discover and build up a real relationship with this person. At this point I’m beginning to loose them a bit – as I notice their eyes flicking side to side as they try to recall such a person. Who on earth could it be? parents, children, partner, friends?
By this time they are confused and sceptical but a bit of them is interested as well – they might, at his point move, rocking on their heels as they continue to search and speculate. You can see their faces reacting to internal searches – minute muscle movements and they search and speculate on who on earth this might be or what exactly I am on about and what sort of deception I am weaving for them.
How on earth do we get through life with someone controlling our lives and we don’t know about it? This idea is patently ridiculous. Once you have been properly introduced to this person you realise that they have been there all your life always helping you always taking on the bigger tasks n your life, protecting you, planning your future, organising your thoughts for you,
If we accept that the conscious mind can only process 7 -+ 2 items of information at one time then how on earth can our conscious mind be complex enough to run our lives? The answer is that it isn’t. The functions of the Unconscious minds are often referred to as the Prime Directives of the Unconscious mind
- Stores memories ,
- Makes Associations (links similar things and ideas, creates patterns in our understanding)
- Learns Quickly (can learn in an instant)
- Organizes all your memories
- Manages memories and unresolved negative emotions
- Runs the body
- Has a blueprint:
of body now
of perfect health (in the Higher Self)
- Preserves the body
- Maintains the integrity of the Body
- Is the domain of the emotions
- Is a highly moral being – The morality you were taught and accepted
- Enjoys serving, needs clear orders to follow
- Controls and maintain all perceptions
- Receives and transmits perceptions to the conscious mind
- Generates, stores, distributes and transmits ‘energy”
- Maintains instincts and generate habits
- Needs repetition until a habit is installed
When we realise that we have this capacity and can use it more purposefully then we realise then we suddenly have a very powerful relationship with our own minds which gives us much increased capacity.
When we are very young there is less and less distinction about the roles of conscious and unconscious – we naturally have an instinctive relationship with enables us to learn and develop successful beliefs, values and behaviours rapidly and easily. As we then go through our teenage years and into adult hood we become more and more inhibited and almost estranged from this relationship. To restore the working relationship takes some time. Consider:
You have a relative – a close on who you have lost contact with over the years – you decide to drop in –go round to their house and knock on the door unannounced. What sort of reception do you get? Confused, cautions, as well as welcome, at this first encounter there is a limit to hoe far the relationship goes. On the second visit you get a warmer reception, on the third warmer and so on. Its just the same with developing a relationship with your unconscious.
