Week 20.5 – When The Body Becomes The Mind, We Are In a Habit

Rewire Your Brain

A habit is something that we do without thinking.

As Dr. Joe Dispenza states in this video, “When The Body Becomes The Mind, We Are In a Habit” . I take that to mean that when we have allowed or purposely programmed our chemical body sufficiently to the point where it no longer needs our brain to execute or choose a response, we no have a habit; for good or bad. The body does not care if it is a positive habit or a negative one at this point. It only knows that a set of circumstances trigger a response and that judgement is no longer necessary.

Can you imagine how our mind atrophies (shrinks) the more we reduce the need to make our own, conscious decisions? Can you say the size of a proverbial pea? This is not what we were designed to do and more importantly, this path of of least resistance and the least amount of growth and accomplishment. As Dr Joe says, “when we can’t think any greater than how we feel, we will never change.” I would qualify that to say we will never change for the betterment of ourselves or others.

If you’ll what and listen carefully, the Doctor speaks of the sub-vocalizations, mental chatter and self-talk that the body and brain conjure to discourage us from follow-thru with our commitments to change. Note that he says we often will hear internal rationalizations like you can start tomorrow, you are unworthy, this doesn’t feel right and the like. If we have become the master observer, we can take this as confirmation that we are nearing the abyss spoken of by Joseph Campbell that occurs at the base of the circular cycle. Rejoice, you are getting near the part where things get better!! This most certainly will not be the end of the chatter but, you have the Law of Substitution and the Law of Dual thought to aid in your efforts to change back to proper way to use your mind and for the body to follow, not to be the master of the system. To allow the body to rule the mind is the path to taking what fate and others hand you only to be constantly disappointed.

This week we spoke of the using negative emotions like fear, anger, guilt, unworthiness and hurt feelings as tools to help us in regaining control of our our body by using our mind. So, out comes the skills bag… We use our skills of observation and introspection (i.e. the SIT) to determine when, why and what triggers our negative emotions. Now we use our skills of tracing effects back to their root cause. Here is the key, we now apply our two favorite laws of the Seven Laws of the Mind (Law of Substitution and the Law of Dual thought) and whalla!!, reverse the perverse! Sorry, I just had the rhyme strike me as an opportunity for lifting the mood a bit (too much hard mental effort). The meaning of perverse I am using is this… (adjective) “(of a person or their actions) showing a deliberate and obstinate desire to behave in a way that is unreasonable or unacceptable, often in spite of the consequences.”

We know what the consequences will be in this case because we are currently or recently have been living in the consequences or effects of our own making. It is these consequences we have all chosen to leave behind and replace with better and sunnier climes.

Let Dr Joe cap this discussion off. Listen, rewind and listen again to his description of True Self-Love. I think you will get the same charge from it as I did as we are human and things that inspire often evoke similar chemicals in all of us. The transmutation of anger, fear, anxiety and guilt harbored in the fiber of the body can be liberated only by the mind. Ladies and gentlemen, we are here to liberate ourselves from flesh and return to a mindful state of control and creation. Doesn’t that fill you with the same hope and faith as it does me? doesn’t it feel true and real? Do you hear the call to your Hero’s Journey? Listen… all real principle and truth comes in the Silence, the SIT.

Week – 3 – Zeroing In On Our Neurological Chemical Addictions; “Sacrifice” Blocking My DMP

Evolve Your Brain

I think I got it this past Sunday when Davene Januszewski was talking about what I could “give up” or sacrifice in order to reach my goals. I the prior week I had been all befuddled by the question coming from my guide and mentor but, it suddenly hit me.

In his book “Evolve Your Brain – The Science of Changing Your Mind”, Dr Joe Dispenza (of What the Bleep fame) shares that we are all addicted to particular chemicals in our brain.

Like spastic drug addicts some of us crave pity, others physical abuse, still others must have a steady stream of attention and will do anything to get it (seems to me this one is rampant with the “reality show” casts).

So, if I combine that with the similar explanation that Mark Januszewski gave us in our first week, I get that I must give up the  chemical that is the foundation of supporting me always being timid and less assertive than I can be. The outward expression (in kind terms) is shyness. For those of you preferring  a real reality show script, its called scared shitless! How is that for embedding emotion and colorful artful expression!

So, my sacrifice is to be not deluding myself that I can be “shy” still get what I plan for my life. The key is to use the The Blueprint Builder (BPB) daily exercises to pound that addiction into extinction and replace it with a super confident and unquestioning commitment to just doing what is required to reach the targets set.

This week alone I have spoken with several rather intimidating individuals (due the their positions in companies) and did not even flinch at dialing the phone. It used to be the standard wringing of hands and wondering how to parse words to sound worthy of listening to or considering my consults. That “habit” is quickly fading… in it’s place is a far more calm and centered “new man” ready to engage in meaningful conversation absent the stuttering, stammering or looking at my shoes routine that may been just part of an act to get my chemical fix.

We all have something we hold dear to that holds us back, What’s yours? Now that you have found the culprit, squash it like a grape and make a full bodies, robust wine of your life and enjoy it with friends and family unhindered by your chemical addictions (bad habits).
