I recently decided to administer an experiment with intent to establish the extent to which my daily habits were cemented in my unconscious. To support the proceeding, I moved my toothpaste cup to an opposite cupboard. Every morning I unconsciously went to the original place where I always placed the toothpaste cup only to remember that I had moved it to a different place. It took me about two weeks before I could go straight to the new place without checking in the old one. This proved to me that if a habit as simple as the proceeding had taken me that long to change, how long would it take to change other profound thought processes and beliefs that I have established about myself since childhood? This discovery scared the hell out of me. However what soothed my racing mind was the fact that leaving the toothpaste cup in the new place eventually became the new habit. Soon, I was able to go straight to the new location without much thought.
How does the above relate to escaping the enslavement of our brains?
It all comes down to one thing. Everything we do on a daily basis is grabbed by the brain as a sensation and manufactured into a habit. Every habit becomes the blue print of our experiences. Imagine that you’ve been thinking negatively for a long time. The brain will manufacture everything in your world to be in congruence with your most predominate thoughts.
Start today by changing a simple self-limiting thought about yourself. For instance, if you’ve been telling yourself that you are fat, tell yourself several times that you have the perfect weight.
Begin with simple things, and then build up by changing all those negative thoughts about yourself.
- The first step is writing down all the things you think are negative about yourself.
- Write down everything that is not working in your life.
- Then write down the opposite attributes of the list in step 1, and what you want to happen instead in step 2.
- Read your new list in no. 3 — three times a day.
This will eventually re-wire your brain to navigate for what you want.
