Did you know that we have all been ‘conditioned’ with beliefs, values, concepts and ideas which are not really our own, which then become our default neural pathways?
HOW CAN THIS BE?
Between birth and two years of age, a child’s brain predominantly uses delta waves. Between two and six years of age, they shift into using more theta waves1)Lipton B 2005, The biology of belief, Hay House, pp. 132–133.
What this wave state means is that every adult, when they were children, unconsciously took in everything that they were exposed to within their environment, for example, their:
- role models
- TV shows, advertising and radio programs.
THIS INCLUDES THE BELIEFS, VALUES AND THE DEFINITIONS AROUND YOU, FOR EXAMPLE:
- positive/negative attributes
- what it means to be a ‘good’/‘bad’
All of these examples wired your brain so that you now have neural pathways associated with how you perceive yourself.
NOW, STOP FOR A MOMENT AND ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTIONS:
Who would you be if you had not been told who you were?
This can be a challenging question to answer, so what is the purpose of asking it? We need to identify and interrupt the influences that have conditioned us to repress our true selves.
