Speaker 1: One of the most important things, because the subconscious mind really has fundamental programs of life that we acquire from our parents, our family, our community between the last trimester of pregnancy and the first seven years. This is why nature created the first seven years of a child's life to download how to be a member of a family, and a society, and a culture by strictly observing other people. It's actually a brain function, it's equivalent of hypnosis.
The fundamental programs in your subconscious are not yours. The conscious mind is yours, that's the creative mind. Well, the issue is that the conscious mind can travel in time. What are you doing next week? Your mind lets go of the moment, goes to next week. What did you do last week? Let's go of the moment and you move into last week. Or I say, “Ty, think of something in your head.” The moment you're thinking, you're not paying attention.
Well, this is where the function of the subconscious comes in. When you're not paying attention, you go to autopilot. It's not like you're walking down a street and you have a thought then stop. No, you continue walking, yes, but you're not paying attention. It's a subconscious that does all the jobs from walking to driving the car. Why is this relevant?
Because when we're not paying attention and we default to the subconscious, we play the programs that are in the subconscious. Then I go, “Yes, but the programs in the subconscious are primarily not yours. They came from other people." Most of them, and psychologists tell us, most of the programs we get are disempowering, self-sabotaging, and limiting. The relevance about that is this. If I'm going to play those programs, then by definition, I'm going to be shooting myself in the foot. The reason why you play the subconscious programs is because the conscious mind is engaged with thinking, which is 95% of the time or more. That means 95% of your behavior is invisible to you, and why I really want to emphasize this so much is this, because we believe we're victims.
“Oh, I really want to be successful. I wanted to be healthy. I wanted to have a great relationship and it's not working out.” Then you say, “Well, that was my intention and it's not working, so therefore, the world is against me.” Then we go into victims like, “God, I really wanted it and it didn't happen,” and I just want people to wake up because it basically is this. It's not the world against you at all, the world will give you everything. The issue is you're not operating from your conscious mind except 5% at the most, and so your life is really a reflection of your subconscious programming.
Now you say to me, “Well, I got programmed from the last trimester of pregnancy to first seven years, so I was being programmed when I was one, and two, and three.” And I go, “Absolutely.” And you say, “But what were the programs? I wasn't there. I have no idea what the hell those programs are.” And I go, “Here's the neat part, 95% of your life is coming from the subconscious. So all you have to do is look at your life and just look at it and say, “For what?” I say, “What comes to you that you want and it comes to you easily, you have programs to allow that to happen. But what you struggle with, what you work hard on, what you have to put a lot of effort into, why are you working so hard?”
The answer is simple. Because you have an invisible program that is sabotaging you from that point. So now, obviously, you say, “Well, what do I need to change?” I'd say, “Look at your life and tell me what you're having trouble with because that's the direct expression of a program that's not supporting you.”
There's always been a belief that the conscious and the subconscious minds are one and the same, so if I educate my conscious mind, then my subconscious mind should automatically know what the heck I just did. And I say, “Yes, guess what? How many self-help books did you read?” I go, “I read all these self-help books.” I say, “Now that you read them, did your life change?” The answer is, “No, not really, but I'm really smart because if you ask me any questions about the self-help book, I can answer it.”
I say, “Well, what's the issue?” The issue is this, the conscious mind is creative. So yes, I could read the book. I could watch this video with you in it, or I could even just go, “Aha,” and the conscious mind could accept that and learn it. But the subconscious mind does not learn that way, and that has been the problem because we educate the conscious minds, get really smart, and our life stays exactly the same as it is, and the issue is, why? Because it doesn't translate from the conscious to the subconscious because the subconscious learns in three to four fundamental ways.
Number one, the first way it learned seven years was hypnosis because the brain was operating in a low vibrational frequency and just downloading what it saw. After you're seven, how do you learn? Habituation. How did you learn the ABCs or the times table? You had to repeat it, and repeat it, and repeat it, then finally you got it and then you know how to do it. Do you want to drive a car? You have to practice and practice and then you learn how to do it.
If you want to change your subconscious mind, hypnosis is number one, that works. Number two, repetition, habituation. Create a habit. At first, it seems like a struggle because it's new to the subconscious mind, but hey, you didn't learn ABCD the first time you said it. You had to do it again and again. But after you do it for a repetition period, it would be so natural that if you're not doing it, your subconscious mind will go, “Hey, what's happening? We're not doing it.” That's really good, we overcome that.
A third way which is very... some people get it and it's very powerful but I wouldn't recommend it is tremendous emotional shock. Boom, something happens in your life and it's so dramatic that after that moment, you're not going to be the same person. The subconscious got it right there. The newer one and the better one is a whole new field of belief change modalities which are also associated with what's called energy psychology.
These are wonderful because basically, it's a form of super learning. What's neat about it, the conventional things like hypnosis or habituation, there's a time element that takes a long time. But these new belief change modalities like a super learning experience, you can change a belief you've had your whole life, 50 years and change it in 10 minutes. This is really a new type of psychology that's coming in, but it's really necessary because as they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
We're running into a world that has a lot of necessity to change very, very quickly, so we're really happy to see that there are ways of changing without going through all that anxiety and stress and we can do it really quickly. My favorite one is the one that I use because I'm most familiar with it, but there's many in my books. I give a whole list, but the one I use is called PSYCH-K, like the abbreviation of psychology. It actually represents psychological kinesiology.
It's an exercise where you get your right and your left brain hemispheres to work in harmony which they don't do on a normal day by day basis. When you get them to work in harmony, that's called brain synchronization. A window opens up and you can drop in a new belief in five minutes. I am a devotee of that because I wouldn't have written my book, I couldn't write my book. I tried for 15 years to write the book, and every time I get halfway through the book, it would peter out.
Then I didn't realize it because my subconscious had a fear. At the time, was a respected scientist, and I said, “If you write this book and you bring in consciousness and spirit into the book, all your colleagues are going to shun you.” My subconscious was doing me a favor, it says, “You don't want to do this.” It goes, “This will invalidate you, like kill you.” My subconscious programming working 95% of the day would sabotage the writing.
What I ended up doing was changing the belief about that. Then the book came out, it was just like... it just flowed right out, and in a few months, the whole thing was really done. It's really fun because you said, “Well, what if you can release these programs?” That's the story of the matrix where I say I take the red pill, I get out of the program, and I say, “Yes, but in real life, every time we've taken that red pill and said, 'What's the red pill in real life?'” The answer is falling in love.
Falling in love with a person or falling in love with your creativity or whatever it is. Falling in love. Because when you fall in love, what you're doing is so captivating and so engrossing and so desirable you even let your conscious mind wander. The first time in your life, your conscious mind is staying present, and I say, “Well, why is that important?” Conscious mind, wishes, desires, and aspirations, if you're operating from that mind, you manifest the wishes and desires.
My conclusion for all of this blah, blah, blah that I'm giving you is simply this. What if you go into the subconscious mind and change the programs in the subconscious mind so they reflect the wishes and desires of your conscious mind? What would that mean? I'll tell you what it means. You'll live in a honeymoon for every day of your life on this planet for a simple reason. If my conscious mind, wishes, and desires begins to wander and I default into the subconscious and it's playing my wishes and desires, I never left the honeymoon.
Speaker 2: Before we went on on the PSYCH-K, you were saying something about a gentleman who gets up on stage and actually proves it with watching the actual frequencies change in the mind, right?
Speaker 1: Well, absolutely, because a lot of people beforehand would say, "Oh, that's just a new age idea, and how do you know you've really changed this because you got finished with the belief process, and you say, 'I feel so much better?' Is that real?" Well, now, Jeff Fannin, a neuroscientist whose expertise is called brain mapping and he puts wires over your head and can read three-dimensionally what's going on in the brain. The moment the brain has changed, the program has changed, you can see it on the screen.
He generally puts a person up on the stage and puts the wires on and says, "Okay, now, we tested your belief. You don't have a belief in this. Now, let's put in the new belief." It's interesting because the audience can see the change before the person actually says, "Yes, now it's done." There's maybe a few seconds, but the audience can see it. Why is this important? Because this sounds miraculous. Yes, you mean you can change your beliefs in 5 or 10 minutes?
Speaker 2: And see the results in an instant.
Speaker 1: And see it instantly. Actually, you can [inaudible 00:09:49] if it's a phobia for a simple reason because a phobia is a certain stimulus like height, or I'm afraid of spiders, or I'm afraid of dogs. Then I say, “Okay, good. Let's go through the belief change.” You come out and I say, “Well, am I afraid of spiders now?” I can show you instantly, here's a spider. All of a sudden, 10 minutes before, it freaks you out. Now, it's like, “Oh, all of a sudden, your complete biology changes.” You can see that, but a lot of people's beliefs involve something dynamic. They have to do with relationship to others and people or jobs. They actually have to go out and then they look back and go, “Wow, this is so different than it was before.”
Most people's stresses are not real immediate emergency stresses at all. They're beliefs of a fear that they won't have something and they won't have a job. They won't have food. They won't have a friend. It's not that they don't have them right now, they're thinking about, “Oh, if that happens,” and that's where the stress comes from, and that's why 90% of the people are in fear because they recognize that their future is uncertain, but rather than seeing it in a positive way, they have this image of a negative thing.
Speaker 2: Trying to work it all out.
Speaker 1: It's really interesting because remember, when you fall in love and you get out of the programming, you create heaven on earth. Well, if it wasn't for the programming, everybody will have heaven on earth. If we can change the programming, then heaven on earth is available to anyone.
