I have a habit of asking myself questions. If you want a good relationship with yourself, you have to have good communication.
Sound a little mad?
Perhaps. Perhaps not.
The thing is we have so many ‘interruptions’ in today’s world, we cannot hear ourselves think, but we can sure as hell feel ourselves think. And that thinking is an echo of what is going on around us, as well as within us.
So when we ‘feel’ something, how do we know where it has come from?
We have adverts, advertising on posters, on social media, on the television, believe it or not, in hospital, in your doctors waiting room, in the newspapers, magazines, on buses, in every public or voluntary service available to us. Everywhere you go you are being told to ‘feel’ something, so you will act something.
We live in a world in which being ‘targeted’ emotionally is inescapable. Because corporations want you to buy, governments want you to obey. Everything has become saleable.
You are for sale. What you do with your time, your money and your opinions is a commodity.
If you would like to look into this further, look up ‘Propaganda’ by Bernays or ‘The theory of planned behaviour’ by Ajzen, or briefly look into the ideas of ‘social engineering’. You will soon find out that Government/ corporations, and in fact all organisations/businesses and so on, all bid for your soul, and quite often they do it together as a team, paying each other to win you over.
I have often discussed how we are visually susceptible to subliminal messaging, but what exactly does ‘subliminal’ mean? We all believe it is a hypnotic state or an image hidden under an image.
Subliminal – Effecting someones mind without their awareness.
Pretty broad then, so all communication can lead us to being emotionally susceptible to someone else’s will, so we act in ways desirable for others.
So, why do I ask myself questions?
I want to know if, for example my anxiety or stress or general feelings of not quite being right, are coming from me, or somewhere else.
As much as I promote to you, that your thoughts are immeasurable when impacting upon your emotions. We also have another thought field outside of our own, a mass mind, if you like, bidding for our attention.
How do I know if all of a sudden I feel guilty, or worried it has not been prompted from the mass mind? That when I watch the news, and it shows me destruction, and people in high distress. That my neurological networks follow these emotions as if they were my own. Theses responses are triggered from what are called mirror neurons, I feel what is shown to me, this is what makes me want to step in and help others. My empathic hard wiring.
If this care I have for the mass mind, the collective humanity, if this care is being manipulated into create my behaviours, so I will fund certain campaigns, instead of ones I have researched to ensure what money goes where, or go and buy certain medicines instead of improving my diet, upping my exercise and improving my mindset. I find myself taking other peoples words and following what everyone else is doing, which is also being directed.
I am then torn, between my own mindset and the many, many, mindsets we are being promoted to hold. In other words, the beliefs we are being given.
How do I even know who I am in such a world?
First of all, when you realise that you have been ‘put under a spell’ so to speak, as in being directed without your awareness, subliminally, then like a magic trick unveiled, you know that the bunny wasn’t always in the hat and you spot it under the table easily and are no longer under the spell.
The key to unlocking the door is knowing the door is locked, and having the key.
Like I say, I ask myself, outright because questions have magic, they allow you the oppertunity to see things differently. Many of us hate being questioned, and will be reluctant to reply, because we understand that questions make us evaluate what we think, a lot of people do not like questioning what they think and believe.
If I ever feel out of sorts and start to feel a bit worried, if I feel it rising in my chest without warning, I will say to myself…
‘Why do you feel anxious?’
My mind will say, I am not sure, and it will fade instantly, almost like a shy child in the spotlight, vanished behind its mothers legs. Gone.
I realised the bombardment upon our emotions, the overwhelming pressure from those who want a piece of me, to either, physically, emotionally or financially have me buy into their ideals can have a very negative effect upon me.
Your worries are not always about you, they can come from your environment, from everything you see and do not see.
The following quote written one hundred years ago, from the man who helped stage the world we live in today proudly boasts…
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
~Edward Bernays, Propaganda
This is the quote from a man who worked to help ‘sell’ WW1 to the American public, and even get them to willingly pay for it, with the beginning of bonds and wall street as it is today. Until he stepped in with his ideas of selling the war, using what he had learnt from his Uncle Sigmund Freud, about how to manipulate our unconscious mind. He was soon working for Government, Healthcare, and Corporations, selling the world we live in today. I will leave it up to you, whether you want to thank him or not, as many of us are not happy with the way things are.
The impoortance of directing our own attentions to what we want to see is paramount if we want to attain happiness within our lives. We must notice that the unconscious is directed at all times, by yourself or someone else.
You have a power to ‘see’ the world around you, to lift the veil and start making your own magic, using your own mind, and it starts with asking yourself questions.
If you do not ask, you do not know, if you do not know, you cannot move and grow, and you will always go along with someone else’s flow.
‘Brains aren’t designed to get results; they go in directions. If you know how the brain works you can set your own directions. If you don’t, then someone else will.”
~ Richard Bandler
So again, to help myself and to help others my super power is the ability to ask questions and use a few simple ‘directive’ techniques…
“What if you create one sentence or question that’s so loaded with hypnosis and assumptions that it totally blows out a person’s problems?”
The thing is, we are being told, all of the time, ‘this is how it is’, without questioning, and that is the superpower of those around us, that is why we go with their flow, we neglect to question our own.
So to be superpowerful, you have to question, because with a simple question, we can reassess our emotions, our thoughts, our beliefs, our way of being, and why its, ‘just the way things are’.
Your superpower starts with asking why you are where you are, and when you know yourself a little more, you can start asking where you want to be. And then you can open yourself up to the opportunity of finding out about how your mind works and get in the driving seat.
If you want to go in the right direction, you have to take back your keys and unlock the doors to your own dreams, your subconscious is only frightening because you are allowing someone else to design your small world and everyone else’s larger world with it.
Now if every adman in the world wants to control your thinking with communication patterns and subliminal messaging, then that means that you and your mind are undeniably powerful…
Imagine what you could do with your own life, if you had those keys, and what impact that would have on the mass mind around you?
Stop being limited, and start being limitless.
