The subconscious mind is a habit mind. A habit is a redundant set of automatic unconscious thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that’s acquired through repetition. A habit is when you’ve done something so many times that your body now knows how to do it, better than your mind. So if you think about it, people wake up in the morning, they begin to think about their problems, those problems are circuits, memories in the brain.
Each one of those memories are connected to people and things, at certain times’s and places. If the brain is a record of the past, the moment they start their day, they’re already thinking in the past. Each one of those memories has an emotion. Emotions are the end product of past experiences. So the moment they recall those memories or their problems, they all of a sudden feel unhappy, they feel sad, they feel pain.
How you think and how you feel creates your state of being. So the person’s entire state of being when they start their day is in the past.

So what does that mean?
The Familiar past will sooner or later be predictable future. So if you believe that your thoughts have something to do with your destiny, and you can’t think greater than how you feel, or feelings have become the means of thinking, by very definition of emotions, you’re thinking in the past. And for the most part you’re going to keep creating the same life.
People practice the same thing’s over and over. They grab their cell phone, they check their what’s app, texts, emails, Facebook. They take a picture of their feet, and post it on Facebook, tweet, Instagram. They check the news, and now they feel really connected to everything that’s known in their life. And then they go through a series of routine behaviors.
They get out of bed on the same side. They go to the bathroom, They get a cup of coffee, take a shower, get dressed, drive to work the same way. They do the same things. They see the same people, that push the same emotional buttons, and that becomes the routine, and it becomes like a program.
So now they’ve lost their free will to a program, and there’s no unseen hand doing it to them. So when it comes time to change, the redundancy of that cycle, becomes a subconscious program. So now 95% of Who We Are by the time we’re 35 years old, is a memorized set of behaviors, emotional reactions, unconscious habits, hardwired attitudes, beliefs and perceptions, that function like a computer program.
So a person can say with the five percent of their conscious mind, I want to be healthy. I want to be happy. I want to be free. But the body is on a whole different program.
So how do you begin to make those changes?
Well, you have to get beyond the analytical mind. The analytical mind is what separates the conscious mind from the subconscious mind. And that’s where meditation comes in, because you can teach people through practice how to change their brainwaves, slow them down. And when they do that properly, they enter the operating system where they can begin to make some really important changes.
Most people wait for crisis, trauma, disease, or diagnosis… they wait for Loss, some tragedy to make up their mind to change. But,why wait? You can learn and change in a state of pain and suffering or you can learn and change in a state of joy and inspiration. I think right now, the cool thing is that people are waking up.
Why Do People Find It So Hard To Get Past Trauma?
The stronger the emotional reaction you have to some experience in your life the higher the emotional quotient the more you pay attention to the cause.
The moment the brain puts all of its attention on the cause. It takes a snapshot, that’s called a memory. So long-term memories are created from very highly emotional experiences. So what happens is people think neurologically with-in the circuitry of that experience, and they feel chemically within the boundaries of those emotions. So when you have an emotional reaction to someone or something most people think that they can’t control their emotional reaction.
But it turns out that if you allow that emotional reaction, it’s called a refractory period, which can last for hours or days, and that’s called a mood. So if someone is in a mood, because of something that happened five days ago, It’s really one long emotional reaction. If you keep that same emotional reaction going on for weeks or months that’s called temperament. And if you keep that same emotional reaction going on for years on end, that’s called a personality trait.
So learning how to shorten your refractory period of emotional reactions is really where the work starts. So when people have an event, what they do is they keep recalling the event because the emotions of stress hormones, the survival emotions are saying pay attention to what happened because you want to be prepared, if it happens again. It turns out that most people spend 70% of their life living in stress and ‘fight or flight’ mode.
So there always anticipating the worst case scenario based on a past experience. The’re literally out of the infinite possibilities in the quantum field, selecting the worst possible outcome, and they’re beginning to emotionally embrace it with fear, and their conditioning their body into a state of fear.
If you do that enough times, the body has a panic attack without you. You can’t even predict it because it’s programmed subconsciously. So a person can be a certain way, because of an event that happened to them 15 or 20 years ago. What that means from a biological standpoint is that they haven’t been able to change since that event. So the emotions from the experience tend to give the body and the brain a rush of energy. People become addicted to the rush of those emotions and they use the problems and conditions in their life to reaffirm their limitation. So at least they can feel something.
So when it comes time to change. The person may recall the same event, producing the same chemistry in their brain and body, as if the event is occurring, firing and wiring the same circuits and sending the same emotional signature to the body.
What’s the relevance behind that?
Your body is the unconscious mind. It doesn’t know the difference between the experience that’s creating the emotion, and the emotion that you’re creating by thought alone. So the body is believing, its living in the same past experience 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. So when those emotions influence certain thoughts, and they do, those thoughts create the same emotions and those same emotions influence the same thoughts, now that entire person’s state of being is in the past.
So the hardest part about change is not making the same choice you did the day before, period. The moment you decide to make a different choice get ready, because it’s going to feel uncomfortable. The bigger thing is that we keep firing and wiring those circuits, so they become more hardwired. So the program is made, and runs from our habitual thoughts (the dominate thought’s we keep through out the day, everyday).
But it’s the emotion that follows the thought, if you have a fearful thought you’re going to feel anxiety. The moment you feel anxiety your brains checking in with your body and saying yeah, you’re pretty anxious.
Then you start thinking more corresponding thoughts, equal to how you feel. The redundancy of that cycle conditions the body to become the mind. So now when it comes down to it, and the person steps into that River of change and they make a different choice. All of a sudden they don’t feel the same way. So the body challenges. You’ve been practicing these thoughts for 35 years, now you’re just going to stop these thoughts, stop feeling suffering, stop feeling guilty, stop feeling shameful, and you’re not going to complain or blame or make excuses or feel sorry for yourself.
The body is in the unknown. So the body want’s to return back to familiar territory, and the body starts influencing the mind. Then there’s a thought, it says, start tomorrow, your too much like your mother you’ll never change. This is not going to work for you. This doesn’t feel right. If you respond to that thought as if it’s true, that same thought will lead to the same choice, which will lead to the same behavior, which will create the same experience, which will produce the same emotion.
The Body Become’s The Unconscious Mind
Your body is your unconscious mind. In a sense, if you’re sitting down and you start thinking about some future worst case scenario that you’re Conjuring up in your mind, and you begin to feel the emotion of that event. Your body doesn’t know the difference between the event that’s taking place in your outer world, and what you’re creating by emotion or thought alone. Most people are constantly reaffirming their emotional states.
So when it comes time to give up that emotion they can say, I really want to do it, but really the body is stronger than the mind because it’s been conditioned that way. So the servant now has become the master. Once that person has stepped into that unknown, they’d rather feel guilt and suffering, because at least they can predict it. The unknown is a scary place for most people because the unknown is uncertain.
So people would say, I can’t predict my future. The best way to predict your future is to create it. Not from the known, but from the unknown.
What thoughts? Do you want to fire and wire in your brain? What behaviors do you want to demonstrate every day? That’s what you want to rehearse mentally, close your eyes, and rehearse the action…
If you’re truly present, the brain does not know the difference between what your Imaging and what you’re experiencing in 3D World. So you begin to install the neurological hardware in your brain to look like the event has already occurred. Now, your brain is no longer a record of the past, now it’s a map to the Future. And if you keep doing it, priming it that way, the hardware becomes a software program and who knows, you just may start acting like a happy person.
The hardest part is to teach our body emotionally, what the future will feel like ahead of the actual experience.
So, what does that mean?
You can’t wait for your success to feel empowered. You can’t wait for your wealth to feel abundant. You can’t wait for your new relationship to feel loved or your healing to feel whole. That means, that’s the old model of reality, of cause and effect, you know, waiting for something outside of us to change how we feel inside of us.
When we feel better inside of us, we pay attention to whoever, or whatever caused it. But what that means is that from the Newtonian world, is that most people spend there whole life living in lack waiting for something to change out ‘there’.
What’s meant by the Newtonian world?
The Newtonian world is all about the predictable. It’s all about predicting the future. But the quantum model of reality is about causing an effect. The moment you start feeling abundant and worthy you are generating wealth. The moment you’re empowered and feel it, you’re beginning to step towards your success. The moment you start feeling whole, your healing begins, and when you love yourself and you love all of life, you’ll create an equal and now you’re causing an effect. I think that’s the difference between living as a victim in your world, saying I am this way because of this person, that thing, or this experience, they made me think and feel this way. When you switch that around you become a creator of your world, and you start saying my thinking and my feeling is changing an outcome in my life.
Now that’s a whole different game, and we start believing more that we are creators of reality.
How To begin The Visualization Process of Empowering Thoughts.
If you’re not being defined by a vision of the future, then you’re left with the old memories of the past and you will be predictable in your life. If you wake up in the morning and you’re not being defined by a vision of future, as you see the same people, go to the same places, and you do the exact same thing, at the exact same time. It’s no longer that your personality is creating your personal reality. Now, your personal reality is affecting or creating your personality.
Your environment is really controlling how you think and feel unconsciously. Every person, everything, every place, every experience has a neurological network in your brain. Every experience that you have with every person produces an emotion. Some people will use their boss to reaffirm their addiction to judgment. They’ll use their enemy to reaffirm their addiction to hatred. They’ll use their friends to reaffirm their addiction to suffering. They need the outer world to feel something.
So to change, is to be greater than your environment, to be greater than the conditions in your world, and the environment is that seductive.
Why Is Meditation The Tool?
Well, let’s sit down. Let’s Close Our Eyes, let’s disconnect from your outer environment. So if you’re seeing less things there’s less stimulation going to your brain. If you’re playing soft music or you have earplugs in that’s less sensory information going to your brain. So you’re disconnecting from your environment. If you can sit your body down and discipline it to stay right there. You tell yourself, I’ll eat when I’m done, check my emails, text, etc…
But right now I’m going to discipline my body to sit. When you do that properly, you’re not eating anything or smelling anything, tasting, you’re not up, experiencing and feeling anything. You would have to agree with me that you’re being defined by a thought right? So when the body wants to go back to its emotional past, and you become aware that your attention is on that emotion, and where you place your attention is where you place your energy, that your syphoning your energy out of the present moment into the past, you become aware of that.
You settle your body back down in the present moment, because it’s busy reminding you of old routine behavior. The body say’s hey, you normally get upset because you’re in traffic around this time and here you are sitting, we’re used to feeling anger, your off schedule. It’s 11 o’clock you usually check your emails and judge everybody. Your bodies looking for that predictable chemical state.
Every time you become aware that you’re doing that, and your body is craving those emotions, and you settle it back down into the present moment. You’re telling the body, it’s no longer the mind, that your the mind, and now your will is getting greater than the program. If you keep doing this over and over again, and over and over again, It’s just like training a stallion or a dog. It’s just going to say, I’m going to obey. The moment that happens, the body is no longer the mind. When it finally surrenders, there’s a liberation of energy. We go from particle to wave. From matter to energy. We free ourselves from the chains of those emotions that keep us in the familiar past. ” Joe Dispenza.
