Picking up where I left off in the last post.
My conversation with this young lady turned into a whole new conversation when I pointed out that she was getting so upset about something that she had a significant level of attachment to. A significant level of what I’d like to call ‘significance’ which is the weight or importance that you put on something that can easily be causing that level of frustration.
What I was explaining to her is this: sometimes you may or may not know what you are thinking at any given time on a subconscious level, or believing, more specifically, about something at any given time. She told me, “Well, I’ve read this book and I’ve read that book, and I’ve done this work this weekend, and I cleared it out, all of my financial blocks.” And I asked her, “You cleared out your financial blocks in one weekend?” She goes, “Well, yeah, I did. Because I did this self-evaluation and blah, blah, blah, and all my blocks were cleared. And I still don’t know why I didn’t get this thing.” I said, “Okay.”
Well, I’m not here to tell anyone that they can or cannot clear up something within one weekend. But I will say this: Based on my studies, and my 20+ years of research into the human mind, the human brain, human behavior, and how humans interact with the rest of the world, it’s highly unlikely that a 20, 30, 40, 50-year-old person can completely change their entire belief system in one weekend.
Now wait, hear me out, please. I am not, by any means, saying that it is impossible. I am not, by any means, saying that it cannot be done. I’m sure that it has been done, and I’m sure that it will be done again. However, I think it is the exception rather than the norm.
I really do feel that it takes a little bit more work than picking up a book, reading it, and saying, “After having read this book, I’ve dropped all of my negative or self-defeating or limiting belief systems that I’ve been living my entire life.”
I think it is very unlikely – not impossible. Not impossible, by any means, but I do think that it is unlikely. Again, of course, this is based on my research. This is based on my experience, not only with myself, but with other people as well.
Again, I have to emphasize: I am sure that someone has had a life-changing situation. That’s really the caveat that I’d like to add in. Typically, when someone makes a huge paradigm shift like that, it’s because of some type of life-changing or traumatic, or I would just say some hugely significant event – a car wreck, someone dying or getting really sick, or some other major life event – that causes someone to really stop in their tracks and reflect.
Again, I have to emphasize, I know I’ve said it a few times, and I’m not saying that a book could not do that. I’m not saying that a home-study program that you took in one weekend couldn’t do that. I’m not saying that a weekend seminar couldn’t do that. However, again, based on my studies, I find it to be highly unlikely that that is the case.
I say this, because I want you to understand that it is a process. It is an ongoing process, and one that we all have to stay on top of to make sure we are manifesting what we say we want in life.
I agree with you. When we look at one’s environment they grew up in, and even the world we are living in today, you most likely encountered with negativity. The truth is, years and years of exposure to negativity gets recorded into our subconscious, which is constantly working all day everyday. Finances, for instance, people can lack because of their subconscious embedded beliefs about money. They may have heard their parents say over and over “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, or “It’s tough to hold on to money now a days” and guess what? It’s being recorded, and repressed in the subconscious. The point is, our mental blocks reside in the subconscious, and it’s hard for me to believe that an average person can reprogram years and years of these thoughts in a weekend. It will take time to undo something of this magnitude. But again, I did say “the average person”. But anything is possible…
What you said is so true. Negative feelings in any form will attract negative energy into our life. Thanks for a great post.
