Conscious Programming – “The Art of Self-Creation”

centering
The conscious mind has the ability to program the subconscious mind, yet we have to first realize that they actually speak (work by) different languages. The conscious mind is abstract and thinks in terms of verbal language as words that lack behavior as actualizing, whereas the subconscious mind is experiential and emotional in nature and speaks in terms of pictures and sensory images as life-like realities that mimic actual memories. The conscious mind programs the subconscious (body awareness) through the imagination as an inner vision that transforms an abstract idea into a conceptualized reality. The imagination as the mind’s eye takes a basic idea, and through the process of applying it to a specific situation or set of circumstances, reinterprets it by personalizing it. We imagine it “as if” we were actually experiencing it as a real life situation. This creates the idea as a living pattern equivalent to a memory, which the subconscious uses to produce behavior that “acts out” the same scenario as a real life experience.

 
By imagining the desired idea as a reality, we not only create a pattern for application, but also create it as a believable possibility that we simultaneously identify with through the enactment. This creates the desired reality as an inner reality that the subconscious superimposes on the outer reality, organizing and reinterpreting it accordingly. The mind constructs realities by how it composes ideas to give them meaning. The meaning we give an idea determines how we experience it. Meaning shapes experience. It takes the imagined reality as an actual experience, which integrates and incorporates it through an accumulative effect that modifies the current paradigm as a system of beliefs based on memory (living realities) as a unification of the physical with the spiritual that provides a new template for generating thematic realities as analogous correspondences. It creates experiences that are of the same nature as a form of theme.

universal

We take an abstract idea as a universal theme, and create an inner reality as a template that produces a frequency that’s used to magnetize and organize the outer reality as being of a similar nature. It won’t be exactly the same as the inner imagining, because it can only use elements in the immediate environment that are of the same frequency and therefore lend themselves to telling the same type of story. The outer experience will be of the same nature and basic idea of the imagined reality based on what’s available in the immediate environment that can be used to orchestrate the experience as a congruent theme.

 
Ideas, as feeling experiences, represent a vibratory frequency that attracts what is of the same nature and therefore has the same inherent tendencies that can be used to express the same idea as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, likewise, is simultaneously repelled. We only “see” ourselves (what matches our paradigm) in others and our environment, even though many other possibilities coexist within the same space and time. What is of the same nature as us we not only notice and give attention to (it stands out), we simultaneously allow to enter into us (energetic sympathy), stimulating an inner reaction (resonance) to it as a result. This is what we refer to as chemistry that produces a natural interaction based on an affinity of sorts.

unity

When we allow ideas to readily and willingly be introduced into our mind, and take hold by thinking about them, we are allowing ourselves to be “programmed” by others or an external source. We then become subject to it because it acts to “tune us” to the same vibratory frequency as a joint reality that we create inward using our own mind. We allow ourselves to be determined – created – by outside forces. This is the result of the subconscious and passive aspect of the mind as our animalistic (body) nature that can be readily trained and domesticated by outside influences that we align with and allow to control us. We are influenced by another mind that imposes a direct influence on us, dominates by introducing an active force as an idea that’s willingly accepted by our passive and receptive mind, that controls us by absorbing and commanding our will.

 
When we give our will to the service of another by conforming to them, they act to control us and determine our behavior, which also shapes our identity accordingly. We enter into a sympathetic relationship with them, and through suggestion that acts to modify and manipulate our inner reality, we respond to them in a very predictable way. They train us to behave in a certain way by how they interact with us. Through the emotional quality of their communication, which acts as the hook for seating ideas in the imagination, allowing them to take hold long enough to develop them into personal realities by thinking about them in a compulsive manner. They “give us” emotional thoughts that are theirs, and we adopt them and then act to develop them as our own. This forms the basis of what we refer to as the “group mind” which is ultimately a form of subliminal mind entrainment designed to train people to certain types of behavior that they mistaken for their own.

 
Once we understand how we use our mind to self-create by creating internal realities that become the living patterns for outer realities of the same nature, we can withdraw our mental and emotional power from the group mind, and use our imagination to self-create in unique and individual ways instead. We can program our own mind and body by creating inner experiences of our desired reality, then enhancing them with sensory details, while infusing them with very positive emotions that magnetize them by making them compelling. Positive attracts and grows, negative repels and diminishes. To “become” by growing ourselves, is achieved through positive and active means, while allowing our negative, self-sabotaging aspects to fall away and subside, because we no longer keep them alive in our imagination. Fill your mind constantly with what you desire to experience and how you want to feel as a result. Sense yourself in very desirable ways that will shape your identity accordingly and will form your character as the means of bringing ideas into physical form as experiences that are self-perpetuated and performed by you!

Becoming more Conscious: Learning how to Listen to your Body

man in sphere
As a society, we’ve been trained to dwell in a vast sea of distracted thoughts and engage in a random, scattered and often non-congruent form of thinking as a part of our daily communications with others. We live the greater part of our life without ever being truly present within ourselves and our immediate outer reality. We constantly look to other people’s opinions and experiences with things and adopt them as our own, often with complete trust that lacks the only form of validation there actually is, knowledge that comes to us through experience that brings self-realization. The only way we can truly know if something is “true” is through the experience of it. To have “knowledge of” something, is to be intimate with it as being the “same thing”.

 
Our body is always in the process of communicating with us and giving us a direct form of feedback. It’s always responding to the energy around us and how it feels, to what we just ate and the manner in which we ate it, and to what we’re dwelling in as the thoughts that prevent us from being self-aware, and keep us instead always residing in the detached space just outside of our body, and remain, for the most part, completely unaware of how we’re feeling. Yet our body is always in the process of interacting with the world around us in numerous ways, and is always providing us with immediate feedback, all we have to do is learn to calm our mind, focus our attention inward, and become aware of how we feel at any given moment.

 
While our body is most responsive to our own thoughts and imaginings, which actually act as a natural form of self-programming, it’s also giving us a constant form of feedback on the energy that exists in places, being radiated by the people around us, about the emotional state and underlying agenda’s of those we’re interacting with, the quality of the air we’re breathing, the food we just ate, and so on. Our body, which is synonymous with our subconscious mind, is a lot like a bio-electric antenna that’s always in the process of broadcasting, receiving, and processing information that exists all around us that we’re always interacting and exchanging energy with at the subtle level that lies just beneath our normal awareness.

 
The mind is the electromagnetic field that surrounds, envelops, and somewhat penetrates the body, shaped like a large revolving sphere of energy that pulsates in a rhythmic flow much like breathing. It unfolds and extends out into your immediate environment and forms resonance (magnetizes) with whatever is of the same vibratory frequency (within an acceptable range) or inner nature as we are, magnetizing and attaching it, then enfolding and bringing the information back into the  core of our body where it’s “sensed” and felt. The complementary aspects of the information being received that can be readily conformed to our existing model are synthesized into our overall system, altering it slightly (or sometimes drastically), shifting our frequency as an adjustment or modification, which becomes a new emanation of the slightly altered frequency. Likewise, any obsolete information is then discharged or pulsated outwards, using some to magnetize new information while discharging others, releasing it to be recycled. This constant flow and exchange is how the inner atmosphere of the body is always being adjusted to match the outer atmosphere as the most basic function of evolution.

3 man sphere

This same process of digestion and metabolism that the physical world is always undergoing, also governs the energetic realm of the mind that’s largely thought driven. Just as the molecules of the air we breathe becomes the molecules we use to build our body at the cellular level, which is in a constant state of regeneration. The energy as consciousness that exists all around us, is being magnetically digested and assimilated to regenerate our energetic matrix as our mental paradigm. This usually happens without our awareness because it’s subtle and gradual in nature and comes more as “feelings” that have an emotional quality to them, and when taken on, awaken those same emotions in us, creating the ideal conditions for their complementary thought-forms. Sometimes this is so subtle that we don’t readily recognize it, and at other times it’s quite pronounced and produces an emotional reaction that can be quite volatile.

 
The other reason it can seem so subtle that it goes unrecognized is because many people are consumed with the thoughts running through their mind that have nothing to do with what’s actually going on around them, and the imagined scenarios as story lines they’re always dwelling in that render them virtually unconscious to the present. While many bodily changes may be taking place in response to the energy around them, they’re so caught up in the body sensations taking place in response to their own thoughts, and so they fail to recognize them. Because of this tendency to be constantly distracted with thoughts that don’t pertain to the present, and being disconnected from our own body, much of the information our body is sending us goes ignored, until of course a state of emergency is reached and the body begins communicating in a different language, the language of physical pain, designed to get us to stop ignoring it and pay attention because a crisis is developing that could result in a life threatening event.

 
The primary difference between the two complementary aspects of the mind, the subconscious and self-conscious, is that the subconscious-body mind, doesn’t perceive “time”. It’s not distracted with imagined realities that aren’t actually real in the present moment. The subconscious is always present, always aware of what’s actually going on in its immediate environment, and making adjustments accordingly. It doesn’t create imagined realities of the past or the future that it lives out of in place of the actual present reality. The subconscious lives in the present and is “experiential” in nature, and emotionally connected to everything around it. It’s interacting with the “actual reality”, and is what produces automatic behaviors, that we do all the time without thinking about them.

 
The self-conscious mind is the verbal, language oriented, thought driven aspect of the mind that’s always distracted with its own thoughts about things that hardly ever have anything to do with the present moment. It’s the “living in your head” thing that most people do that exists “in time” (past and future), and is living an illusion in place of actual experience produced by being present. These thoughts and imaginings, usually as replaying memory, or projecting memory into the future creating a similar scenario as a prediction that forms an expectation of what’s to come, also act to provide the subconscious mind with a form of substitute reality that it perceives much like an actual reality, that programs it by providing it with a form of memory as actual information about the environment that modifies it in preparation for that reality. We are literally always in the process of programming ourselves through our imagined thoughts.

 
The imagined states we live out of as obsessive thoughts act to keep us prepared for that reality as an expectation that becomes our perceptual filter. The mind, which extends quite some distance from the body, is always gathering information from the environment and sending it back to the body, so the body can “prepare” for what’s coming. It adjusts to the perceived environment that it exists and needs to survive within. By closing down and clearing our mind of obsessive thoughts that aren’t real in the present, and turning our attention inward to our body, becoming aware of all the sensations and how we’re feeling, we can use our body as a means of measuring and interpreting everything around us in terms of how it makes us feel. We can sense whether we feel relaxed and calm, being stimulated with a distinct emotional sensation, or stirred with an inner turmoil, or have a sick and queezy feeling as an adverse reaction to something. While our body doesn’t communicate with us in words as verbal language, it does operate according to the law of analogies and correspondences, and if we concentrate on a feeling sensation in our body while in a passive mind-set, a natural mental impression will form as a reality associated to the feeling, which is a form of metaphor for understanding the nature of what’s causing the sensation. Our inner feelings are always interacting with the “inner nature” of everything else, and so reveal to us their “true” nature as their energetic constitution, regardless of what their outer appearance is like.

soul
When we become present in our life, form an awareness of our body and how we feel, we can use our body as a gauge or a form of navigation system. We can begin to realize what produces a “good effect” and what produces a “bad effect”, and what that’s telling us. We can realize the quality of consciousness present in different environments, in other people, in our relationships, in the air we breathe, in the food we eat and the water we drink, and so on. Our body is always giving us feedback about how things feel. All we have to do is become present in our body, form a relationship with it, sense and feel what’s happening within us, and use that information as a guide for what to do and what not to do. Our body let’s us know what to increase and have more of, and what to decrease or eliminate all together. It serves as a guide for what relationships to maintain, and which ones to let go. For what types of food to eat, and how to make health promoting, energizing dietary changes that will leave us feeling good.

 
Many of what we call illness and disease are actually direct feedback from our body about the lifestyle we’re living, in an attempt to provide us with what we need to make the changes necessary to restore our body to health, and a positive, high energy, feel-good state. For example, lactose intolerance is not something you should take a pill for so you can keep on drinking milk and eating cheese, it’s your body’s way of telling you it can’t digest it, and quit consuming it. Heart disease and hypertension is a condition caused by how you’re living, not only in dietary terms, but also your stress level and habitual emotional state that frames reality in a way that causes you to react negatively to your own thoughts about things. It’s your body’s way of saying you’re emotional thoughts and reactive behavior are destructive and will ultimately end up killing you if you don’t change it. Diabetes is calling your attention to the nature of your diet, and the state of your body in terms of being overweight, or not exercising. You’re maintaining a lifestyle and mental state that’s detrimental to your health. Again, it’s not warranting medication of some kind so you can keep on doing what you’re doing that’s killing yourself, it’s your body’s way of talking to you, providing you with evidence and feedback as direct and immediate affects, that also provide you with the information you need on how and what to change.

 
By becoming present in our body, and in our life in general, and removing our attention from unproductive emotional thoughts, and instead directing our attention to what’s going on within us and around us, we can realize what our body is prompting us to do by how we feel. When you choose a meal, choose one that you know is nutritious and will create a healthy happy body. As you eat it, think only about how healthy it is, and how you’re eating healthy because you love your body. After you’re done eating, sit quietly for a few minutes, and notice how your body feels in response to what you just gave it. Learn how to dialogue with your body through thoughts that form a strong feeling in your body. The “feeling” produced by your thoughts “is” the communication with your body, it’s an effect in the body as the equivalent of your thoughts. It’s not enough to go through the motions of saying it, you’ve got to mean it! You have to create the emotional expression of what you’re saying to yourself. Thought without feeling has no power to create.

Chakras

Likewise, when you go places, engage in activities, or are around certain people, calm your mind, become present and neutral, and notice how you’re feeling and what you’re sensing. Be present with the energy and see what emotional quality it has, and what mental impressions it naturally forms. Don’t force the interpretation or allow your normal judgmental mind to kick in and start running stuff, simply allow yourself to notice it, without needing to change it. Remain unattached to what you’re sensing. Don’t try and explain it or make it mean something, just sense it as it actually is. Then, see it for what it actually is, your body giving you immediate feedback as to the consciousness and energy of the person, people, or activity you’re engaged in. Use that neutral and unbiased information as factual and true to guide your decisions and how you interact. Don’t let your emotional mind come back in and start running your habitual mental script in the new situation, recreating it to mean the same thing.

 
By learning to relax, control our anxious thoughts always competing for our attention, and directing our attention instead into the present moment, and experiencing things by way of our body and the actual energy and consciousness that’s present with us, we can gain a whole new sense of ourselves and our relationship with life. We can become truly creative in the moment by directing our actions with full awareness and by interacting with what’s actually present with us. We can learn to see people and things as they actually are rather than as we reshape them to be like us through our biased judgments and habitual way of thinking and perceiving that creates illusions in place of reality.

 
When we walk into any situation with preconceived notions, and our perceptual lens rigidly formed by our judgments, that for the most part rob us of our ability to see others and reality as it actually is, apart from us, and unique unto itself, we simultaneously rob ourselves of the possibility for brand new experiences. By developing the ability to be present in our body and with the people and things around us, we can begin experiencing life and others in a whole new way. We can acquire the information and feedback we need to begin living our life in a much more conscious and aware fashion, and begin creating in a deliberate and precise manner as a result. We can learn how to live in our heart rather than in our head.

 
Simply begin observing your own mind, your own tendencies, and notice what you tend to think about in an automatic and habitual fashion, and what stories run through your mind that glaze over the present with memories of the past and keep you in a hopelessly distracted state, and recognize what it is that keeps you from being present . . . . and through this self-awareness, start practicing directing your mind to remain focused in the present and forming an awareness of how you’re feeling in relationship to your environment. Learn how to remain aware of your body and tuned into what you’re sensing through your body and what information your body’s always in the process of giving you. Tune out of the imagined reality and tune into the real reality. All opportunities only exist in the present moment. Tomorrow is being created today. You’re only ability to act, is in this moment.

The Health Danger of Fried Foods – “The Poisons in the Preparation”

frying foods
Many people focus largely, if not completely on the nutritional and chemical composition of the food and don’t even think about how it’s being prepared, or the additional affects encountered through various cooking methods. Frying foods, which consists of cooking in hot oils of any kind, creates a chemical reaction called oxidation, which is extremely carcinogenic. It loads the system with what called free radicals that damage the molecular structure of the body, compromising it, and ultimately creates the ideal environment for a large variety of cancers.

 
Oxidation of cells is what’s called body “rust”. In order to get a visual idea of this, slice an apple, and the exposure to oxygen turns it reddish-brown from free radical damage. Oxidation takes place when oxygen loses an electron during interaction with other molecules, and becomes a form of renegade as a free radical. These are what you might call wounded or unstable oxygen molecules that are very dangerous to the over-all health of the body. In their natural quest to heal themselves, free radicals steal electrons from any healthy (whole) molecule they can, creating more free radicals in the process, and so they multiply. Whenever oxygen mixes with other molecules, free radicals form.

fried chicken

Frying foods in oils of any form should be eliminated as a food preparation method. Heating oils changes the chemical composition of the oil loading it with free radicals. This includes not only the obvious deep fried or pan fried foods, but also things like potato chips, snack items, and nuts and seeds that are roasted in oils, or in their own oil. It also includes all animal meats that cook in their own juices as body fats. Grilling as well as pan frying or any method that sears, browns and glazes with a crispiness, is especially carcinogenic and should be avoided. French fries and potato products are especially bad because the potato absorbs and retains a large amount of the oil. Deep (vat) fried products are especially bad because the oil is not only heated at 340-360 degrees, but is kept heated for hours and days at a time. The average fast-food restaurant only changes the oil in deep fryers every 2 to 3 days, after it has completely broke down, become dark, filled with sediments, and rancid tasting.

 
Most oils are produced through various forms of heat extraction, which makes them highly carcinogenic as a basic product, before they’re used for cooking. The advantage of Olive oil that’s “extra virgin” is that it’s extracted from olives through a cold-press method, and is not heated. If it doesn’t say “virgin” or “extra virgin”, which means collected from the first round of cold pressing, then it’s not “pure” and is produced from heat extracting of some sort, and is carcinogenic as a result before it’s even used for cooking by heating it further. Once oil is heated, even olive oil, it oxidizes even further, producing a large array of free radicals that damage the body at the cellular level and become the breeding ground for cancers, tumors, masses and a whole group of other diseases, such as hardening of the arteries, high cholesterol (LDL), degenerative eye diseases (macular degeneration), DNA – damaging genetic information (causing cells to replicate uncontrollably becoming cancerous), and aging itself through cellular breakdown.

french fries
As the Laws of nature go, every force has a counter force, and for every free radical our body produces through chemical reactions of various sorts, there is an antioxidant to control it. The primary antioxidants are vitamins C, E, and beta-carotene (produces Vitamin A). Antioxidants literally come between free radicals and cells, and offer up their own electrons in order to stabilize them. Foods that are high in antioxidants are a good idea to eat on a regular basis to help counteract all the forms of free radicals that not only come from our diet, but also toxins in our everyday environment. A diet heavy in fruits and vegetables such as: citrus fruits, broccoli, carrots, green and sweet peppers, dark green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, squash, spinach, and wheat germ are just a hand full that contain high levels of antioxidants, and should be a regular part of your daily diet.

 
Alternative cooking methods should be employed to replace any form of frying or heating oils as a means of cooking. Raw, steaming and baking are obvious alternatives for vegetables, also simmering in water or low-sodium vegetable broth in place of frying. While this alters the flavor of the food, you’ll grow accustomed to it in no time, and once you get used to the fresher taste that it produces, greasy foods will lose their appeal, not to mention you’ll be reaping the results in terms of health and just knowing that your taking positive steps to improve your health and increase the vitality of your body, which has a lot of satisfaction in it. When we take good care of ourselves, we feel good about ourselves and begin taking responsibility for our own health and sense of well-being.

 
And always keep in mind that the body grows accustomed to whatever we feed it. When changing eating habits, it only requires a time frame of 4 – 6 weeks before a new habit is established, and then, the old one loses it appeal, you no longer crave it, and even when you do eat it on occasion, it doesn’t taste nearly as good. So learn to take back control of your health by making conscious decisions that nourish your body, instead of satisfying addictive cravings that act to destroy your health. You’ll reap the consequences of a healthy young looking body, higher energy level, clear and radiant skin, and a noticeably improved state of mind!

A different Way of Perceiving Weight-loss and Health – “Learning to Think Holistically”

measuring veggies
One of the keys to understanding the creative processes is to train your mind to think in terms of whole ideas that first create a goal as a desired outcome, which naturally indicates and sets into motion a natural process for creating it. We must realize that all creative processes are an attempt to acquire a feeling of some sort. The feeling that creates the desire for something, also reveals to us the quality of the experience itself, and what we will have more of upon completion. The feeling that motivates the desire to express an idea or create something specific is the common denominator that unifies every aspect of the experience itself to be of the same nature.
If we set goals designed to lose-weight because we feel bad about how we look, feel unattractive, or judged by others, etc., notice first of all that what is motivating the desire for the outcome is a negative feeling. We are first focusing only on what we don’t want, then feeling bad about it as a means of creating it. The goal is stated as a negative instead of a positive. We’re also using a bad feeling to motivate a whole process, which tells us that the process itself is simply going to express and give us more of that same negative feeling. Because a negative feeling is being used as an attempt to motivate the necessary process, we create a feeling of suffering, sacrifice, deprivation, and the constant temptation to remedy it.

measuring wasteline
An experience of suffering is created as a means of achieving it, and as a necessary means of maintaining it once you have lost the weight. So the entire experience is very negative and then doesn’t even serve to make you feel better about yourself, because your whole focus was on “being fat” and what was wrong with you and therefore unattractive that needed to be corrected, which just served to anchor that feeling even deeper into your mind. You trained yourself to focus on what was bad about you. You then live in that feeling, creating a reality around it, and you keep noticing it, which simply strengthens it. Once you lose the weight, you still don’t feel good about yourself and often don’t know why.
When an artist goes to create a piece of work, they never ever do it by thinking about what they don’t want to create. The entire process is created by only focusing on what they are going to create as a vision or finished product. Inspiration as a love for something they deem beautiful somehow is also what motivates the creative process. The process itself keeps them in a constant state of a desire for what they love, which saturates their mind with very positive emotions, while holding the image of what they love in their mind as the means of creating it. So if, we set that same goal in positive terms as what we “do want” and deem beautiful, we would set a goal to be healthy and have more vitality instead. To create optimal health which will naturally produce ideal body weight as a natural by-product while also enhancing our physical features, such as skin tone, hair, nails, sparkling eyes, vital energy and an optimistic, joyful state-of-mind. The image we form in our mind as a means of creating it will be the desired outcome, ie., us in perfect health feeling and looking very good. That lets us know that when we accomplish it, it’s going to serve to increase and give us more of that same feeling.

baggy pants
We now have a creative process that requires us to live in a state of constant love for ourselves while using our mind to create what we deem perfect, beautiful and lovable, and therefore desirable. We then educate ourselves on health, diet and lifestyle, and as we are going through it, imbue it with constant thoughts of how the food we are eating is nourishing our body making it strong and vital, and then imagining ourselves this way. We tell ourselves how good we feel, and that we’re feeling better and better each day. We feel empowered in our life to take control of our health and create it intentionally in a very deliberate manner. It teaches us how to use our mind and imagination in very positive ways to intentionally self-create. And as a natural result, we lose weight, or better yet, achieve our ideal weight, whatever that may be. Most importantly, we feel really good about ourselves and have an abundance of positive and vitalizing energy. Our mind is clear and alert, and we feel happy as a general mood and everyday way of being.
So by learning how to set positive goals for desired outcomes that are inspired by positive feelings and emotions, the experience of doing it as creating it are also very positive, while making us feel powerful and competent to become the person we want to be in our own lives. When we achieve it, it’s going to give more of the same positive feelings that motivated it to begin with. The “feeling” is the unifying factor that determines how and what we experience as a means of creating it. By realizing this and learning how to set only positively stated goals that are creative in nature (making something), that require us to live them out in positive states of mind, serve to unify feelings and the thoughts they naturally produce with positive emotions in response to our own thoughts, and the physical product that’s a correspondence to the feeling itself. The feeling spawns thoughts, emotions and behavior that are of the same nature.

 

Step-by-step process for creating:

> First embody a feeling that’s inspiring and uplifting. One that creates an image of beauty, love of and for, adoration and reverence.

> Allow a vision to naturally emerge out of it as a correspondence – that’s of the same feeling quality. What would you feel like and look like if you were completely healthy? Hold that image in your imagination and develop it by thinking about it, imbue it with attributes that bring definition to it by giving it distinct characteristics.

>Form it into details as physical and energetic qualities.

>Infuse it with very positive emotions. Fall in love with it and allow a strong desire for it arise and take hold. Associate the loving feelings and emotions to the perfected image.

>Then gain realization around the process necessary to create it. Provide yourself with the necessary resources (education, products, supplies, tools, etc.) Develop a strategy for going about it to produce it as a part of your daily routine. How will you need to change your daily habits to incorporate it? Make it a step-by-step process.

>Then, when you are engaging in eating healthy foods, tell yourself how they are nourishing your body, how good you feel, and that you’re becoming stronger and healthier everyday while picturing your ideal self in your mind. Feel it as if it’s real and already created. Create an inner reality of it with full sensory enhancement.

>As you make progress, notice it, and tell yourself “it’s working”, then stay in the realization that you created it. You’re doing it. It’s happening. Tell yourself “I knew I could do it”. Fill yourself with confidence in your ability to create yourself. You set the goal and are now accomplishing it. Have that feeling, stay in it for awhile.

>Remain flexible throughout the process and be willing to change it based on evaluating feedback, making adjustments anywhere necessary until you get the results you’re after.

 

Always keep in mind that eating healthy does not involve dieting, processed foods, or starving. It’s not about going to extremes, but rather establishing greater balance and harmony. Moderation is the key to success. Always keep in mind that whatever you choose to eat then eat in a disciplined manner, you will acquire a taste for. You only like and eat the way you do currently because you established a habit of it. Our body always seeks nutrition and vital substance as opposed to empty foods loaded with chemical flavor enhancers designed to form addictions based on taste. Train your body to like nutritional food, and you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes!

The Art of Wellness – Transforming your Health

One of the most basic mistakes people make in producing change in their life is they fail to start with an outcome in mind, and attempt to do to much at once. Because change can often seem a bit overwhelming, they psyche themselves up in order to muster up the determination they deem necessary to do what they imagine they need to do (imagining it as being difficult), then start off with a blast, that usually fizzels quickly, leaving them feeling even weaker than before and discouraged to try again. This process, which is very common, nearly always leads to failure, because it comes as the result of negative programming while employing an incorrect process for creating a desired result. In order to be successful, you need to start by utilizing the proper process for creating.

Because we developed the habit or tendency that we’re now attempting to change over time, to recreate it in a new fashion will also require time. Changes should be created first as an outcome that we’re acting to create, then break down into steps required to produce the change out of our current conditions and circumstances. Your focus as an imagined reality should always be on the result the change will bring. The step-by-step changes in your current practices should be implemented in stages with time frames attached to them. It should be approached as a building and accumulative process that gradually converts the existing situation into the desired situation.

Each step should be allotted a time frame required to create it as a new habit before the next one is implemented. The secret of conscious creation lies in the power of concentrated thought. When we scatter our attention on too many things, we lose our creative ability to direct physical processes with our mind. Concentration on a single idea, while creating it in the imagination as a full sensory reality, while infusing it with positive emotions, is the key to conscious creation.

Creative Process for Change:

1. Form a very clear idea in your mind of the desired outcome as an actual reality. As if you’re experiencing it. Develop it into details as what are you seeing? Hearing? Feeling? Smelling or tasting? And what are you telling yourself about what what you’re experiencing?

2. Create a statement as an affirmation of this reality with a strong emotional content. This will act as an activating mechanism for focusing your mind on the goal.

3. Compare the desired outcome with the current reality, and distinguish the differences, and what in the current situation needs to be transformed to produce the new reality.

4. Create a list of the areas to be transformed, then develop each area as ideas that bring clarity around it necessary to actually produce it.

5. Break the process down into stages or chunks, then break each stage down into steps needed to successfully accomplish that stage of development

6. Assign reasonable time frames to each stage and to each step within the stage, while simultaneously developing a time frame for the creation of the overall idea.

7. Each step needs to be created in the imagination as the experience of doing it that’s a form of mental rehearsal. Imagine yourself doing it until you get it just the way you want it, then repeat that process as a rehearsal over and over until you can recall it in an automatic fashion.

8. Then practice through the template of the mental rehearsal in your everyday life, creating the experience as an analogy to your mental rehearsal. If you lose your focus, use your affirmation to redirect your mind

9. Repeat this consistently as a practice in your daily life until the step is accomplished in an automatic and natural way. Only when this step is accomplished to the desired level, should you move into the next step or stage of the process.

All change that comes in a gradual manner goes unnoticed. As humans we can make small adjustments with relative ease, and can make small consistent changes with equal ease. If we try to do too much at once, it can become overwhelming and awkward, or we can create an experience of suffering in doing it. Most creations require a foundation to be laid in order to support what comes out of it in a natural way. When we fail to lay the foundation as the basis for the change, we undermine it and usually fail to be able to produce the change as permanent and lasting.

Change in reality is transformation as a creative process. All creative processes begin with the end in mind. The end is a reality shaped first in the imagination to be used as a kind of blueprint that’s then used to produce the outward reality as its equivalent. When we learn how to use our mind to direct physical processes necessary for transformation, we become powerful creators in our own life. We cultivate the ability to determine and set the course of our destiny, and begin fashioning ourselves by way of our own hand.

The Art of Goal Setting – “Creating Resolutions that Work”

In gaining an understanding of how we manifest as a personal process that utilizes the willful use of our mind, we can create a new way of looking at an age old tradition of making a resolution as a means of consciously self-creating and imposing a desired direction on our life. Creating comes by choosing what you will create as apposed to just existing in the current pattern that’s running your life. In order to work within the laws of the mind, we need to transform it from the idea of a goal as a statement, to a well-formed outcome as an actual experience. By creating a goal as a holistic idea that embraces the psychology involved in creating, we can learn skills at working more proficiently with our “whole mind” instead of fragmented parts. While the language of the conscious mind is words as abstract and conveying only personal meaning, the language of the subconscious mind is feelings, emotions, images, impressions, and actual experiences. The subconscious mind which builds and maintains the body while also producing automatic behaviors, is programmed through imagining goals as actual experiences. While the conscious mind can be perceived as having the ability to “choose”, the subconscious mind can be thought of as the “will” that serves to act out the choice by producing the behavior of its fulfillment.

The other immediate mistake people make, is they set goals that are negative in nature, and then use the creative power of their mind to create the very thing they don’t want. The mind can’t process a negative command. It doesn’t work by forming mental impressions around what “not” to do, or of what you “don’t” want. It works by interjecting a suggestion as an idea that’s imagined as a reality in the mind, while forming feelings around it or in response to it that creates a pattern as an actual experience that serves as a program for the subconscious mind to produce as an outer experience that matches the internal experience. We first create inwardly what we want as an imagined reality, which becomes the template as a perceptual filter that forms our outer experience as a correspondence to the inner. A goal must be stated in positive terms. Not in terms of what you don’t want, but in terms of what you do want. You form the goal or wish into an actual reality as an outcome or as an actual experience.

For example, if your goal is to lose 20 pounds, then the mind has to picture the 20 pounds you want to lose. Keep in mind, anything we can lose, we can also find again. Because you are not providing it with an image of the desired result, it sees the 20 pounds and the meaning you give it (fat, ugly, unattractive, unhealthy, sloppy, etc.) as the reason you want to lose it, as the actual emotional reason for creating it. The negative command literally says, picture this, feel this way about what you’re picturing, and give me more of it as a means of making me feel the same way. The emotion we attach to the image, is also speaking in the language of the subconscious which it sees as a request for “more” as a pattern for fulfillment. This is why as soon as you profess the need to “diet” as a means of losing weight, you simultaneously form irresistible compulsions around eating more, or eating the things you say you want to “resist”. Behavior is emotionally driven and is how the subconscious mind creates. You don’t focus on the fat that you want to lose, but instead you create an idea of how you’ll look and feel when 20 pounds lighter. You imagine your body in the shape you want it, how you’ll look, how your clothes will fit, what you’ll be telling yourself about how you look and feel, what others will be saying, and so on. You create the desired outcome the goal is intended to produce as an actual reality. You imagine it “within” the experience of it.

When we use language to define a goal, it’s abstract in the sense that it doesn’t always have behavior attached to it. It doesn’t indicate an experience or the process necessary to achieve it. It’s not creative unless it serves to direct our behavior, that is to say, give the subconscious mind a pattern for producing the actual reality. Our mind creates by an understanding of how the conscious mind has the ability to direct and command the subconscious mind by giving it directives in its own language. Words as ideas must be transformed into feelings as imagined experience of the desired outcome and what you will feel as a result in order to give the subconscious mind an “experience” as a pattern for fulfillment. The mind works by creating a perceivable and therefore believable reality as a means of fulfillment by associating an experience to a desired feeling. In order to produce change, language must be converted into experience. We have to look at what the language indicates, see it as an analogy or symbolic of a desired feeling, and create the experience of it as an actual reality, then while holding this in mind, embellish it with strong emotions of desire, adoration, admiration, respect, honor, and so on, and allow these emotions as they escalate to form feelings of gratitude and appreciation which sets an expectation for them. What we expect and look for . . . we find and get.
