Disclaimer: I have no formal training in therapy, psychotherapy, or any other healing techniques. As a result, nothing in this section should be taken as advice. The information provided here is only that which I've personally learned based on my own limited experience and understanding. Readers are responsible for doing their own research and making their own self-help decisions.
The initial step toward freedom requires that people heal themselves, physically, mentally, and spiritually. As our external reality is simply a manifestation of our collective internal reality, in order to change our world, we must first change ourselves.
No significant change can be made to the ills of our world by attacking them from a 3D external reality standpoint. Change must occur in the mind and consciousness, and it is here where we must concentrate our work.
While working to change the minds and consciousness of others is of the utmost importance, we must begin by working on ourselves.
We must conquer our own demons.
Everything that manifests in our world begins with what people think about themselves. Whether they realize it or not, most people do not have positive perceptions of themselves. This is often the result of being trapped in cycles of negativity, which are usually triggered by experiencing traumas.
Cycles of negativity keep people in a negative mindset, and prevent them from growing. As an example, if one thinks they’re unworthy, they’ll feel like they’re unworthy, and their actions will be reflective of one who is unworthy. This will lead to experiences that reinforce those same initial negative thoughts of unworthiness. The cycles never end. These cycles then lead to self-destructive thoughts, behaviors, and habits.
Because these cycles of negativity ultimately affect people’s actions, they affect all of reality, since actions are the final step in the creation of our reality.
While many turn to pharmaceuticals to cover up their symptoms, these are merely band-aids that do not address the underlying causes, and will do nothing but poison those taking these drugs, while making them easier to manipulate and control.
So, how do we get out of these cycles of negativity? First, we need to understand how we became trapped in these negative cycles in the first place.
The subconscious mind is the part of the mind that operates below the conscious mind. It keeps information and memories stored away, out of moment-to-moment awareness. It also stores beliefs and habits. The vast majority of what we think, feel, and how we act is based on what exists in our subconscious mind. It is the driver behind approximately 95% of our behaviors, and forms the basis of who we are.
Because it affects our thoughts, emotions, and actions, if we wish to change our lives in any meaningful way, we must make the change in our subconscious mind. When we access and change the beliefs, habits, and life programs stored in our subconscious mind, we change our lives, instantly.
One of the important jobs of the subconscious mind is to deal with traumas, which are distressing events that result in damage to the mind and the emotions. The subconscious mind buries these traumas as a defense mechanism, helping to prevent the constant remembering and reliving of those moments, which would cause the re-experiencing of the associated pain.
The subconscious mind also works to resolve these buried traumas, but sometimes we experience traumas that our subconscious cannot resolve. We end up carrying these unresolved traumas and their associated emotions around with us. They may fester, grow, and begin to affect us.
One of the ultimate results of not dealing with unresolved traumas is a lack of self-respect and self-love.
This lack of self-respect and self-love can then lead to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, misplaced anger, violent behavior, addictions, destructive habits, and other negative states of being and actions. Many abuse themselves with toxic food, alcohol, and other poisons, which have also been deliberately programmed into their subconscious minds. Many end up abusing others, and joining organizations that abuse others.
Many others become overly passive, unwilling to stand up to abuse.
The abuse then leads to new traumas, and the cycles continue.
For those who become overly passive, their lack of self-respect ultimately leads to them being unwilling to stand up against violence and oppression. They turn into cowards who would rather fasten their own chains of slavery than take even the slightest risk to move in the direction of freedom.
When combined with those who feel the need to abuse, the result is masters (government, willing abusers) and slaves (people, willing victims).
Add groups comprised of psychopaths who work to ensure these master/slave relationships continue indefinitely and we end up with our world of slavery and suffering.
So what can be done about it?
In order to escape cycles of negativity and the consequences that result, the first step is to become observers.
Most never observe their thoughts and, as a result, make their way through life unconsciously. They follow programmed patterns of behavior that come from subconscious habits and repetitive thoughts, most of which have been imprinted upon them by others. They become automatons influenced by unresolved traumas and other programs from their past. They end up believing that they are their thoughts.
They never stop and ask…
When they step back and start asking these questions, they begin to become the observer of their thoughts, and begin to gain the power to change those thoughts and, as a result, change who they are.
Becoming an observer is the first step in self-healing.
So how can we become an observer?
Meditation and mindfulness are two tools that can help us become observers, plus bring us clarity, self-awareness, and balance. They will be essential for helping to transform our world.
Rather than having regrets about the past or worrying about the future, meditation and mindfulness train the mind to remain in the present moment. It is in this present moment that one has the power to find peace, and the power to create.
Regular practice of meditation and mindfulness will also help to center us, and allow us to reconnect with our true nature. This is critically important because our true nature is something that the control system is constantly working hard to suppress and pervert.
Free resources and guides for both meditation and mindfulness are available online, in books, and in videos.
Contemplation and concentration are two additional mental and spiritual exercises that can help one achieve clarity, focus, and balance.
Doing shadow work is uncovering negative thoughts, beliefs, and patterns, and then working to improve or even eliminate them.
In the past, the only method people knew of to deal with severe traumas and the associated negative emotions was to try to remember them, think about them, and then talk and/or write about them. This is called therapy or psychotherapy, and it can work and has worked for many people.
However, therapy is hit or miss, and it can sometimes reinforce the negative emotional patterns associated with those past traumas. In addition, if traumas occurred when we were young, we may not be able to remember the events that caused those traumas.
New and improved methods for dealing with negative thoughts and habits have been discovered. Collectively, some have called these Belief Change / Energy Psychology Modalities (BCEP Modalities). BCEP Modalities are powerful techniques that can be used to directly dissolve the negative emotions, habits, and patterns in people’s lives.
Using these techniques, we don’t have to go back and remember the triggering traumas, or spend weeks or months or years in therapy with inconsistent results; the work itself directly addresses the emotions and energy disruptions that currently exist within us. Some are so effective, vast improvements can be made within a very short period of time, sometimes within a matter of seconds.
BCEP Modalities create change at the subconscious level. Since the subconscious mind controls 95% of our thoughts and habits, when we change what's in our subconscious mind, we literally change who we are.
Dr. Bruce Lipton is one of the leading experts in the realm of BCEP Modalities.
He’s listed a number of different BCEP Modalities that one can try:
Dr. Lipton is one of a growing number of researchers who understands that changes must occur in the subconscious mind and that, collectively, we're very quickly running out of time to make these changes.
BCEP Modalities provide us with a fast-track to changing what’s in our subconscious minds, and therefore changing their lives.
One BCEP Modality that has been tremendously successful at helping people all over the world is EFT.
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. It's a simple exercise that can be used to improve or eliminate any personal, mental, emotional, or health issue. It involves saying a mantra and then tapping on certain points of the body. This tapping releases negative energy blocks associated with the issue identified in the mantra. People have reported EFT has helped them with all sorts of issues, from “fears to trauma ... anger to depression ... bee stings to multiple sclerosis ... back pain to vision issues ... baseball to gymnastics ... singing to golf.” It can be used for any issue whatsoever, whether physical, mental, or emotional.
It's completely free, easy to learn, and takes only minutes to do. Take a few minutes to watch the introductory video called “EFT (Tapping) Intro by Gary Craig, EFT Founder”, and then watch “The EFT Basic Recipe by Founder Gary Craig”.
BCEP Modalities like EFT have been shown to be far more effective than therapy, drugs, and other treatments.
"A new kind of healing is available to us using energy vibration rather than physical chemicals. And it turns out that energy vibration as a means of communication is one hundred times more efficient than trying to communicate with the body through chemistry."
-Dr. Bruce Lipton
EFT can vastly improve virtually anything we wish to improve about ourselves. I know because I’ve used it successfully, and I know others who’ve had similar success. It works!
Lecturer and radio show host Jay Parker is an example of the power of EFT, the information shared by Dr. Lipton, plus the work of another doctor – Dr. Joe Dispenza. Years after experiencing trauma as a youth, Jay used these resources to transform himself into a happy, healthy, conscious adult.
Jay especially recommends Dr. Dispenza's book, Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself.
Like other BCEP Modalities, Dr. Dispenza’s habit-breaking technique allows us to modify what’s in our subconscious, giving us the power to literally rebuild who we are.
These are examples of negative self-talk statements. They could be spoken aloud, or repeated by the voice in our head. Repeating negative statements like these serves to install these beliefs into our subconscious. It doesn't matter if the statements are true or untrue. Simply repeating them makes them true for our subconscious. As our subconscious mind drives the vast majority of our behavior, we will continue to behave in ways that reinforce these negative statements.
Once we become aware of negative self-talk, we can begin to change it. Instead of saying "I'm not worthy", change it to "I am worthy". Instead of saying "I can't get a new job", change it to "I have many new job opportunities". Instead of saying, "I'm never going to be healthy", say "I'm already healthy".
Positive statements about ourselves repeated regularly are called affirmations, and they can help to change our lives.
Hypnosis allows for direct modification of the subconscious mind. While in the theta brainwave state, experienced for short periods of time just before falling asleep, and just after awakening from sleep, there is a window of opportunity to speak to the subconscious. During these times, listening to a recording of positive affirmations that promote self-love, self-worth, and health, can serve to install these positive beliefs into the subconscious, and allow them to begin to become part of our life programming.
The easiest way to accomplish this is to record, in our own voice, statements such as "I love myself", "I am worthy", "I am lovable", "I am healthy", and so on. We can focus on any aspect of our life that we wish to change. We can then create a loop of these positive statements which can be loaded onto an mp3 player, or any kind of personal audio device. Listening to these positive statements, especially while falling asleep and awakening from sleep, will begin to implant them in our subconscious mind, as the old negative programs are replaced.
This type of subconscious programming is also effective when we're in a theta brainwave state of meditation. Marisa Peer is a hypnotherapist who specializes in helping people change their lives for the better using this technique.
Marisa provides a tremendous amount of advice, along with a number of guided hypnotherapy meditations, and offers much of it for free on YouTube.
For all of these hypnosis techniques, repetition is key, so listening to them on a daily basis for at least 21 days in a row will ensure maximum effectiveness.
Working with a self-sabotage teacher or coach who understands the nature of the subconscious is another option for those who wish to dramatically improve their lives. Overcoming self-sabotage work can remove or transmute all harmful, limiting, and self-destructive habits, and replace them with habits that promote health, happiness, and overall well-being.
Jason Christoff is a certified self-sabotage coach who offers online group sessions from time to time. To learn more, visit his website at https://jchristoff.com/. Other coaches offering one-on-one services can be found at the Freedom From Self-Sabotage website.
Mainstream television, radio, and movies are absolutely littered with images, words, and ideas aimed directly at our subconscious, intended to program us into destroying our health, well-being, happiness, and wealth. Shutting off these toxic programming streams is critically important, and will allow us to program ourselves without any interference or roadblocks.
While those who’ve structured society have done an effective job at convincing us that we cannot change…
"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much."
...the truth is that we are always the ones in control of our lives, and we can change anything about ourselves and our lives that we want.
We don’t have to remain in negative thought patterns. We don’t have to remain in imbalanced states in which we’re the abuser or the one being abused. We can discard the negative programming from our past, whether it came from traumatic experiences, or from those who intentionally sought to program us with limiting and negative beliefs and patterns of behavior. We can change our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions, and literally rebuild who we are.
But if we want things to change in our lives and in the world, we must be the ones to take action to make that happen. Nothing will change without us initiating that change.
While sometimes situations may seem like they'll defeat us or forever hold us back, it's important to realize that we will never be given something that we cannot handle, or a situation that we cannot overcome or change. We can change anything about ourselves that we want to change. The knowledge and tools needed to change and improve are out there.
And when we overcome challenges and difficulties, we become better, stronger, and wiser. We become the masters of our lives.
"We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within."
But it's up to us to make that choice to get ourselves out of negative thought and behavior patterns. It’s up to us to make the decision to improve ourselves.
One of the ultimate rewards of self-improvement is regaining self-respect and self-love.
The word 'respect' simply means to look at something again, so ‘self-respect’ is to gain a clearer image of ourselves, not clouded by past traumas or programmed beliefs.
To have self-respect means that we've looked at ourselves and come to understand that we are worthwhile and we are valuable. As human beings, we each have infinite value and worth.
A world of people who are regaining self-respect and self-love is a world that is healing.
The choice is ours. We can allow external forces and events from our past to shape us and keep us down for as long as we live. Or, we can stand up, make the decision that we're worth more than that, and take back control of our lives.
"Things do not grow better; they remain as they are. It is we who grow better, by the changes we make in ourselves."
By using helpful resources and pathways, such as some that have been mentioned here, we can transform our lives from states of limitation, self-loathing, and suffering, to the exact opposite: unlimited opportunity, self-love, and joy.
We can regain confidence and change ourselves into exactly who we want to be.
And when we've regained self-respect and self-love, we will automatically take steps to protect our physical health. We won't allow criminal entities to poison us anymore with toxic food, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, fluoride, or any of the other attacks designed to destabilize our health and well-being.
Rejecting these attacks against us is as important as healing our mental and emotional states, as regaining health on all levels must occur if we wish to truly heal ourselves, and collectively continue on our journey toward freedom.
Final note: This section was meant to provide a very brief outline of the root of the problem as I have come to understand it, along with several potential solutions. This subject is much deeper, much broader, and more complex, and there are many more pathways to self-healing than those mentioned here. Please do your own research to learn more and to discover what works for you.
