If you’ve ever said you’re of two minds about something, you were right.
The mind that had that idea was your self-conscious mind, the seat of cognitive thinking, personal identity, and free will.

It is the part of the mind that proclaims wants, desires, and intentions, and consequently the part that makes God laugh.
The joke is that that part of the mind imagines who we think we are, but it controls only 5 percent or less of our lives.


 One great application that Dr. Bruce speaks about is muscle testing to see if your program (subconscious) aligns with your wishes and desires (conscious).

 For instance, if
relationships aren’t flourishing in your life then it’s because your program of beliefs on what you feel you deserve doesn’t support your desires. Muscle testing can gauge whether this is true or not.

 One 
example of a statement that you can muscle test for relationships is, “I love myself”. When you say these words and your muscles become weak or you have a hard time reading words (they become blurry) then your program doesn’t support this desire, the opposite reaction would mean your program does support this belief.

 Focusing on if your belief isn’t supported. A possible message that would resonate with that program would be “I’m not loveable”, and with that program you will sabotage every one of your relationships.

 We all want to be loved, so you must learn to rewrite your program. How to rewrite your program: first, you must create a statement that a six year old can understand.

 The reasoning behind this is your program was written in the first seven years of your life. So that’s the “type” language you need to calibrate to.

 Create a statement as if it already happened, so “I want to be loved”, wouldn’t work because you will always get to that point where you “want” to be loved.

 A statement like, “I am loved and very loveable” could work for you, but this statement is very personalize, so just allow this to be a guideline of examples.

Now you will need to imprint this message into your subconscious, where it will override the old belief.

Imprinting this message into your subconscious can be achieved via many methods that Dr. Lipton has a profound and in depth grasp on.

His favorite is called super learning. This is the fastest way to imprint this message. 

Subconscious Mind.

 

Bruce Lipton is talking about the subconscious mind.


The Value of Good Driver Education
The principle sources of stress are the misperceptions that have been programmed into the system’s “central voice,” the mind. The mind is like the driver of a vehicle; with good driving skills, a vehicle can be well maintained and provide good performance throughout its life. If we employ good “driving skills” in managing our behaviors and dealing with our emotions, then we should anticipate a long, happy, and productive life. In contrast, inappropriate behaviors and dysfunctional emotional management, like a bad driver, stresses the cellular “vehicle,” interfering with its performance and provoking a breakdown.

Are you a good driver or a bad driver? Before you answer that question, realize that there are two separate minds that create the body’s controlling “central voice.” The (self-) conscious mind is the thinking you, it is the creative mind that possesses your wishes, desires, and aspirations. It is also the seat of “positive thinking.”

Its supporting partner is the subconscious mind, the equivalent of a record-playback device that downloads our life experiences. The subconscious mind is a supercomputer loaded with a database of programmed behaviors. Some programs are derived from genetics; these are our instincts, and they represent nature. However, the vast majority of the subconscious programs are acquired through our developmental learning experiences, and they represent nurture.

The subconscious mind is not a seat of reasoning or creative consciousness; it is strictly a stimulus-response mechanism. When an environmental signal is perceived, the subconscious mind reflexively activates a previously stored behavioral response — no thinking required. The subconscious mind is a programmable autopilot that can navigate our vehicular bodies without the observation or awareness of the pilot — the conscious mind.

The dual-mind system’s effectiveness is defined by the quality of the programs carried in the subconscious mind. Essentially, the person who taught you to drive molds your driving skills. For example, if you were taught to drive with one foot on the gas and the other on the brake, no matter how many vehicles you owned, each will inevitably express premature brake and engine failure.

Similarly, if our subconscious mind is programmed with inappropriate behavioral responses to life’s experiences, then our sub-optimum “driving skills” will contribute to a life of crash-and-burn experiences. For example, cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death, is directly attributable to behavioral programs that mismanage the body’s response to stress.

In our conscious creative mind we may consider ourselves as good drivers; however, self-sabotaging or limiting behavioral programs in our subconscious unobservably undermine our efforts. We are generally consciously unaware of our fundamental subconscious perceptions or beliefs about life.

The reason is that the prenatal and neonatal brain is predominately operating in delta and theta EEG frequencies through the first six years of our lives. This low level of brain activity is referred to as the hypnogogic state. While in this hypnotic trance, a child does not have to be actively coached by its parents, for children obtain their behavioral programs simply by observing their parents, siblings, peers, and teachers. Did your early developmental experiences provide you with good models of behavior to use in the unfoldment of your own life?

During the first six years of life, a child unconsciously acquires the behavioral repertoire needed to become a functional member of society. In addition, a child’s subconscious mind also downloads beliefs relating to self. When a parent tells a young child it is stupid, undeserving, sickly, or any other negative trait, this too is downloaded as a “fact” into the youngster’s subconscious mind. These acquired beliefs constitute the “central voice” that subsequently controls the fate of the body’s cellular community. Although the conscious mind may hold one’s self in high regard, the more powerful unconscious mind may simultaneously engage in self-destructive behavior.

If I Am Creating My Own Life ... I Wouldn’t Have Created This! The insidious part of the autopilot mechanism is that subconscious behaviors are programmed to engage without the control of, or the observation by, the conscious self. Most importantly, neuroscience now reveals that the subconscious mind, which is an information processor one million times more powerful than the conscious mind, runs our behavior from 95 to 99 percent of the time.

The powerful meaning of this reality is that we only move toward our wishes and desires from 1 to 5 percent of the day. In the remaining time, our lives are controlled by the habit-programs downloaded into the subconscious mind. The most fundamental of these programs were downloaded by observing other people, such as our parents, siblings, teachers, and community. The profound conclusion is that 95 percent or more of our lives is programmed by others!

As we become more conscious, we rely less on automated subconscious programs, and also have the ability to rewrite limiting, disempowering beliefs formerly downloaded into the subconscious mind. Through this process we become the masters of our fates rather than the victims of our programs. Conscious awareness can actively transform the character of our lives into ones filled with love, health, and prosperity by its ability to rewrite limiting perceptions (beliefs) and self-sabotaging behaviors.

10 Important Things About our SubConscious Mind

 Our subconscious mind exerts a powerful influence over our lives. It preserves and runs the body. It stores and organizes memories, emotions, and energy. It controls and maintains all of our perceptions. Over 95% of what we do, think, and say comes from old programming in our subconscious mind. Unless you make a conscious effort to direct the immense power of your subconscious, its robotic and limited programs will run your life. It will sabotage your best intentions. And yet, it’s not difficult to work with the subconscious. You just have to know what you’re doing. Here are ten facts you should know about the subconscious mind… 

1. Despite its power, the subconscious is a servant of the conscious mind. It follows orders by acting on whatever is fed to it. It cannot distinguish between what is real and what is imagined. It has no sense of humor and takes everything very literally. Your conscious mind is the gatekeeper. For personal power, you must be aware of what you are allowing into the subconscious. And you can intentionally program it to manifest what you want in life.

2. The subconscious mind responds with instinct and habit. As thinking and behavioral patterns deepen, they become habits and they become harder and harder to change. 

3. Use repetition, authority, and emotion to program the subconscious. Affirm and visualize often what you desire. Be strong, willful, and in command. Draw on your passion and emotional power to affirm what you want, as emotions have a very strong impact on the subconscious mind. 

4. The subconscious mind does not process negatives. For this reason, all affirmations and statements must be positive. Do not say, “I will not gain weight.” The ‘not’ is not recorded. The subconscious mind only hears, “I will gain weight.” 
 

5. The subconscious represses memories with unresolved negative emotions. The memories will get buried, yet the beliefs and feelings associated with them will still control your reactions. This is why it is important to become aware of and resolve strong guilt, resentment, fears, anger, and depression. 

6. The subconscious mind works with symbols and metaphors. Watch your dreams closely for symbols that will offer clues to underlying issues that need to be resolved. 

7. It takes everything personally. It keeps a photocopy of everything. Whenever you criticize, resent, judge, and project negative thoughts and feelings onto others, you experience the negativity as your own. 

8. It works on the principle of least effort. It follows the path of least resistance. Without purposeful direction from our conscious mind, it follows the easiest, usually more negative path of our ingrained habits. 

9. It has a need to be moral. The subconscious mind is also the source of a higher aspect of yourself. This God force, Soul energy, or whatever you want to call it, supports your evolution towards love, unity, beauty, and truth. Consciously working with the subconscious opens us to higher levels of wisdom and love. 

10. It knows only the present time. There is no future or past in the subconscious mind. All stored experiences are processed as NOW. Know that the past affects you NOW, as the subconscious replays past programming in the present. So affirm in the now, not in the future. And understand that you have the power right now to rewrite sabotaging programs from the past so you can claim a better future.
