Our Conscious And Subconscious Mind

Have you tried to change a bad habit, or try to motivate yourself, only to find out something deep inside your mind resisting? A basic law of the mind is working here: whenever the conscious and subconscious mind is at odds, your subconscious usually wins. This is the law of conflict.

Brain LevelsPeople usually change their habits through will power or through self-discipline. While they do work in some cases, most of us fail miserably. Logic works well with the conscious mind, but it often does not with the subconscious. Meditation or subconscious programming helps the subconscious mind. The conscious and subconscious mind displays different aspect of our mind.

Dynamic meditation is a simple process that most of us can do. It doesn’t cost much or require too much effort, yet the outcome is persuasive. It simply combines suggestion and imaginative visualization in a relaxed state of mind. The first thing to do is simply get to relax and imagine the desired traits or circumstance. This is combined with affirmation or suggestion constructed in present tense.

To understand how the conscious and subconscious mind works, first we must understand the 4 states of the mind. We are in what is called the beta state for almost all of our waking hours. Our mind radiates these waves when we think, reason or engaged in some problem solving. As our brain waves slow down, we enter what is called the alpha state of mind. The portal in our conscious and subconscious mind is opened. This allows access to memories and storing new information. This is also often regarded as meditative state, in which the mind and body become so relaxed. We are also at our most suggestible state.

Below the two types of conscious states is the theta, this is the dream state, and delta, which is basically us in deep sleep or unconscious. At alpha and theta state our words have extremely increased power. These are the two areas where controlled meditation is focused.

Why does controlled meditation work on the conscious and subconscious mind? There are six reasons as the Rules of The Mind as professed by the late Charles Tebbets.

First, every thought or idea causes a physical reaction.The mind has the capability to make you sick or keep you healthy. Ideas with a strong emotional component almost will reach the subconscious mind.

Second, what’s expected to happen tends to be realized. The brain and the entire nervous system responds only to mental images, whether self-induced or from the surroundings. The image formed becomes the template, and the conscious and subconscious mind carries out the thought.

Third, Imagination rules. Imagination overcomes knowledge when dealing with the mind. Ideas accompanied by a strong emotion state like anger or love cannot be modified through reason.

Fourth, Conflicting ideas cannot be kept simultaneously. Many people try to hold opposing ideas at the same time.

Fifth, Once an idea has been accepted by the conscious and subconscious mind, it will remain until another idea comes to fore. The longer an idea is held, the more it takes a hold of the mind. Forming into a habit or belief system .

Sixth, Emotionally induced sign tends to cause physical change if held onto long enough. We are a mind in a body and just like the conscious and subconscious mind the two cannot be separated.

This simple and safe process of controlled meditation combined with faith, hope, and passion, this allows for a healthier conscious and subconscious mind.

Looking for Love ~ Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

It’s not where you look but who you are.

Wayne_DyerYou must be that which you desire. There’s no point whatsoever in an unloving man or woman bemoaning their inability to find a partner. They’re doomed to endless frustration because they don’t recognize the perfect match when it appears. That loving person could be right there, right now, and their resistance doesn’t allow them to see it. The unloving person continues to blame bad luck or a series of external factors for their not having a loving relationship.

Lying Hurts The Liar

Why do people lie?  Why do some people seem to NOT be able to tell the truth even when the truth is clearly obvious or evident?  What makes a person tell lies instead of the truth?
Never-LieLiars eventually get caught in their tangled web of lies and deceitfulness.  Lying hurts the liar and those who are subjected to the lies of the liar.  Lying hurts relationships and it makes the liar untrustworthy.  A liar violates the trust others may have had in them when they are caught in their lies.  Liars seem to carry an enormous amount of burden upon their shoulders.  Think about it…..  if you tell a lie,  then you have to live a lie and in order to live a lie,  you have to remember all the lies you tell and to whom.  Remembering the lies becomes quite a heavy burden.  Even if the liar lies just a little bit…..the pain they cause hurts alot.   Finding out someone you trusted has lied in such a horrific ways makes you wonder why they did this to begin with?  It causes you to wonder why they would not just ruin a relationship,  but completely break any possibilities of trusting.
Lying can spill over into other areas of your life such as on the job, with co-workers and employees if you run your own business.   Some people lie so much that they believe their lies and it then becomes their “truth”.  They become habitual liars.  People who discover their friend or family member has lied, feels cheated.  Especially when the lie is about them or becomes personal.
Why do people feel compelled to lie?  First we must understand why the person has lied to begin with.  Are they afraid of the truth?  Are they afraid of being caught of wrong-doing?  Do they lie because there is something they want and feel the only way to get it is to lie?  Compulsive or habitual liars seem to be very lonely people.  Some liars must embellish stories so that others will befriend or like them…..or so, thinks the liar.  A liar who embellishes stories just to win over “friends” will eventually lose their “friends” when their lies have been discovered.
People who go through life lying believe that their lies  will make their lives better.  A person who lives their life by lying, does so to avoid the pain of living.  Their lives seem to be void of happiness and they live their life unfullfilled.  Some people try and justify their lies.  “They will be mad at me if they know the truth”;  “They won’t be my friend if I tell them the truth”.  Liars attack their accuser because they believe it makes the lie less than what it is, but the truth is…a lie is a lie and there’s no such thing as a “little white lie”.
A liar lives a miserable life and it seems that they are only  happy when everyone around them is just as miserable as they are.  It makes no sense.  With the case involving my estranged sisters who continue to this day to make up lies and stories of things that never happened,  their untruthful internet postings are basically written to try and make my life as miserable as their own.  They believe that it is okay to hurt people they know because this is what they themselves were taught as children.  They grew up in a very dysfunctional family unit which causes them to continue to live their lives as dysfunctional adults.
Lies diminish feelings we have for one another and lies decrease the love we may have felt for one another.  Lies destroy relationships.  Lies  extinquish hope, trust and friendship as well as remove any possibility to believe in the person who lies.  Some people say,  “well, why don’t we just forgive the liar and move forward?”.   I’ll tell you why.   Forgiveness can be stretched to the limits and its a word that is frequently over used.  Forgiving someone may make YOU feel better,  but if the person who causes damage beyond repair continues to lie and they feel no remorse…how does forgiveness help?  To forgive someone for wrongdoing who intentionally lies to cause pain and hurt causes others to become confused.  Forgiveness is only appropriate if the liar actually feels remorse for lying……acknowledges they have lied to cause another person pain and if they ask to be forgiven and truely regret their lies and the pain they’ve caused.  Failure to forgive appropriately can make a situation become much worse.

There is also a difference between condoning and forgiveness.  Some people condone the liars behaviour by ignoring it and allowing it to continue.  If someone has lied about you or has caused you pain by lying,  it is completely appropriate to speak out about what the liar has done.  Ignoring a liar is basically condoning the liars’ behaviour.  The religious call to forgiveness is not a call to being a sucker.  If someone has lied about you or to you,  it is appropriate that you not pretend it didn’t happen or that it doesn’t matter because lying does matter.  It matters to everyone involved with the liar and those who are suckered into the lie by affiliation.

Is it easy for a liar to stop lying?  Well,  that depends.  A habitual liar has difficulty in putting a stop to lying just as an alcoholic has difficulty saying no to a drink.  A compulsive, habitual liar needs help if they are to completely stop living their life through lies.
There are differant types of liars:
Braggarts; Compulsive liars; exaggerators; habitual liars and bull throwers.
The habitual liar is the most difficult of them all with the rest of the other types being a tiresome lot.  It seems the bigger the role model,  the worse a lie becomes.  It wouldn’t be so bad if lets say someone I didn’t know told a lie about me.   It is much worse to have a sister lie about me and its even worse than that when the sister is estranged because they are dysfunctional and live their lives  through hateful lying and outright deceitfulness and directly hurting others through deceitfulness.  If more people would raise the bar,  it would help restore truthful behaviour.  Every time we hear someone lying,  we should call them out as liars and not condone the behaviour by ignoring it or by accepting them as a liar.  We are far better off without liars than to live our lives with a liar.  There are two types of people:  The liars and the lie catchers.   I chose to be the lie catcher because I live my life in truth.  I have no fear about what I say because I speak the truth and know my story as factual.  Liars on the otherhand have extreme difficulty living a quality life because their life is void of truth.
Mark Twain once wrote, “Everybody lies…every day, every hour, awake, asleep, in his dreams, in his joy and in his mourning.” This was written in 1882 in his essay,  “On the decay of the art of lying”.
Many times a person will lie and not even know it.  When someone asks you “how are you doing?” and you answer “I’m great” when in fact,  you are feeling unwell or not doing well,  you’ve just told a lie.  But these types of lies are not harmful.  They are in fact,  the type of lies that are near involuntary and done without even thinking  and helps keep the fabric of our society from unraveling.  But if someone lies and says that you’ve done a horrible thing when in fact,  you’ve done nothing…….this is an outright lie that was done with malice and the liar has done this with malicious intent to cause harm.  We always tell our children that honesty is the best policy but if the parent is always telling lies,  how can they possibly be a good role model?  Here are my estranged sisters,  supposed role models  peddling lies big and small……exaggerating, beefing up a boring story by embellishing events that never happened…..misleading people that they know as well as those they don’t know.
Perhaps their parents gave them conflicting messages as they were growing up……either way,  they’ve turned into very deceptive adults hoping their lies will provide them with a “reward”.  In my estranged sisters’ case,  their reward is gaining my mother’s assets, property and small income since my mother no longer has the ability to realize their depths of deception, due to her diminished capacity from dementia.  My mother has never been a wealthy woman.  She was a hard worker who was smart with her income.  It’s quite sad to know that the very people she thought she could trust have robbed her of not just her personal belongings,  but of her dignity,  her peace of mind and are causing her great stress through their deception.  The worse part is that these people feel no remorse and knowingly deceive her so that they can gain the “rewards” they feel they are entitled to.
Psychologist Paul Ekman says that people lie to avoid punishment, to get a reward, to enhance egos and to control information.  They lie to remove themselves from an awkward social situation.  There are so many reasons why people lie.  So many reasons we wonder how to  drill our way and cut through the molten core of truth?
It’s quite simple really.  By practice and training on a daily basis to tell nothing but the truth.  When it comes to lies,  Paul Ekman is the man.  He wrote the book,  “Telling lies” in 1985.  He tested the lie detection ability on over 12,000 people and found that the average person can detect a lie 54 percent of the time.  This is hardly an acceptable rate.  A person can actually do much better at detecting a lie if taught to detect micro-expressions.  What is a micro-expression?  This is a flash of emotion that quickly flashes across someone’s face, which is either a  suppressed or repressed emotion.   The truth is often tucked discreetly under a quilt of cheerful lies.
In order to detect concealed  emotions,  you must not trust your impressions.  Paul Ekman says that if you do this,  you’ll be wrong the majority of the time through stereotype.   It is quite difficult to judge a person by demeanor.  One of the easiest ways to see beyond impressions is to learn to catch micro-expressions, which betray emotions.  Mark Twain wrote in his essay, “If a man keeps his tongue still… his hands, his feet, his eyes, his attitude will convey deception…and purposely.”
Some people don’t seem to want to know the truth.  Getting away with lies seems to be easier to do these days.  More people are interested in deceptive tales rather than boring truth.  There’s alot of double talk now that our world is more electronic.  If a person is really interested in knowing the truth,  all you have to do is follow the liars’  trail of deception.  They will blatantly contradict themselves and their stories will often times change.  Choosing to lie is a serious gamble of integrity.  But you have to remember that a compulsive or habitual liar has no integrity.  They have no remorse.  They live a life shut off from their true feelings because becoming too close to their true feelings would bring about all the pain they have hidden deep down inside.  The lies are packed neatly on top of the truth and the truth is sometimes too great for the liars to bare.
The bottom line is that there is a big cost at living a life full of lies and deception.  People will refuse to trust in you and people will stop believing in you.  The person hurt the most is the liar because living a life full of lies is detrimental to the well being of the liar and to those who unknowingly allow the liar to continue to lie.  I for one will no longer sit back and allow my estranged sisters to lie about me as a person or as a business.   They can create fictitious stories and continue to build their web of lies,  but the end result is they are only hurting themselves.  My life is driven in truth.  Their lives are driven by deception and untruthfulness.  They continue to lie to not just others but to my mother so that they can  obtain the small “reward” they feel they are entitled to.  What a very sad, lonely life to live.  Everyone knows what it takes to lie,  but very few know what it takes to re-establish trust.  You can’t like someone, live with someone or care about someone you can’t trust.  Liars are very untrustworthy people.

What is Self-respect and How Does it Relate to Self-esteem?

The terms “self-esteem” and “self-respect” may seem at first glance very similar, if not exactly the same. But they are indeed very different things and have very different consequences, especially when cultivated at a young age.

i-amPsychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and other experts for years have encouraged parents and teachers to cultivate self-esteem in kids. About thirty years ago, it became very popular among child experts to tout self-esteem as the solution to all our children’s problems. We’ve heard it a million times—high self-esteem is good, low self-esteem is bad. But what does this really mean and what effect does it have in the long-term?

Self-esteem means simply thinking highly of one’s self. Many parents, teachers and psychologists feel that by showering a child with praise, he or she will grow up with a positive attitude and confidence. But often self-esteem that is left unchecked can develop into destructive behavior: thinking less of others, un-gratefulness, arrogance, cockiness. The pursuit of self-esteem can become, as described by family psychologist and parenting expert John Rosemond, “an excuse to do your own thing—regardless of whether or not the “thing” in question is anti-social—and quickly mutate[s] into self-worship.”

Self-respect, on the other hand, is a mindset that allows us to become grateful, humble and well-adjusted. Self-respect encompasses respect not just of ourselves, but also of others. In fact, by respecting our fellow humans we can learn to respect ourselves more. When we have self-respect, we love ourselves but do not become arrogant or cocky. As Rosemond puts it, “A person growing in self-respect understands that he is an imperfect being who was given the gift of life in order to serve.”

Self-respect is akin to the Golden Rule: in order to receive respect and learn to respect ourselves, we must learn to give respect to others. And while having confidence is not a bad thing, people who are over-confident (and who are often seen as arrogant) haven’t learned this principle—that in order to get respect from others and from ourselves, we must first learn to give.

Self-respect is gained “not by being told how wonderful you are,” Rosemond writes. “But by developing respect for others.”

As you’ve probably experienced, people who have grown up being told how great they are usually aren’t very fun to be around and don’t make very good friends. But people who have been taught to take an interest in and care about others while maintaining a positive attitude about themselves tend to be the type of interesting people with whom we enjoy spending time.

By encouraging our children’s individuality and growth by teaching them to be confident yet humble and respectful, we can help them become adults who have healthy, stable relationships and friendships, and respect for themselves and others.

Why do people label other people ? (via A World of Inspiration and a little extra!)

Why do people label other people ? Why do people label other people especially if they don’t know them to begin with ? Well first off everyone knows the saying  ” It doesn’t matter what a person looks like on the outside  its what’s on the inside that counts” everyone should know and understand this by the age of 9 years Most of all its because they are ignorant. They wont open their mind to anything that is different’. They just don’t understand that EVERYONE “IS” DIFFERENT  Its … Read More

Quantum Physics and Energy Healing

Quantum Physics and Energy Healing

Many people had thought of energy  healing as nothing more than superstition of the eastern cultures. Recently, advancements in quantum physics has brought a new understanding to the impact that energy has on our beings. There are many   healing quotes that contain wisdom that has only recently been understood in the west thanks to these developments and understandings. Read on  to learn more about quantum physics and how it pertains to energy healing.

The body is composed entirely of energy. The field of quantum physics has  recently discovered that all matter is composed of energy. If you continue down  beyond the atomic level, you will eventually find what are known as “super strings” which are pure vibrations of energy. The frequency with which these  strings are vibrating determine what kind of matter they form. These sub-subatomic particles then interact with each other in ways that eventually form atoms.

These atoms form molecules, which form cells. And our cells ultimately form us. The resonance of the energy of which we are made determines  a lot about our bodies. The good news is, much like a stringed instrument, you can tune these strings to provide resonance and frequencies that are more beneficial to our being. But, like a poorly tuned instrument, if you don’t pay attention to your energy, you will find that things get out of harmony and lead to an unpleasant experience.

Failure to take the tune of your body seriously is what leads many people to  suffer depression, anxiety, stress, and illness. If you learn to use energy healing to manipulate the energies in your body, you will learn to sense disruptions  and negative energies in and around your body. This will give you an opportunity to improve your condition greatly if utilized properly.

Some of the forms of energy healing you can look into include: guided  meditations, Reiki, Qigong, Domancic Bioenergy Theory, Therapeutic Touch, and  Meridian Tapping. All of these methods take advantage of the bodies energies in  some way or another, and provide ways to manipulate them for positive  benefit.

It’s important that you stay in touch with your energies. They determine a lot about you. By ignoring these energies, you are leaving yourself without the ability to know what is really going on for you and your life. Keep your spirit in tune and you will sing a happy song. But fail to do so, and you will  suffer.

Many cultures have a form of energy healing, but the majority of our knowledge of this field originates from the wise Asian cultures of past millennia. Recently, a surge of information about these techniques has been coming to western cultures and captivating us. Many are sceptical, though, because it can not be proven by science. But plenty of people are able to  recognize the basic truths that form the principles of energy healing, chi and chakras. The advancements taking place in quantum physics will enable us to  justify the thoughts behind the practice and bring it to the entire world as a  validated medicine. Until then – choose  to believe.
