The Paradigm Shift
Mind…..Conscious Mind and Sub Conscious Mind:
We humans have a Mind. This mind is divided into two parts, Conscious mind and subconscious mind.
Conscious mind is that which we use for our day to day actions and activities.
It has logic, discrimination, sense of good or bad, right or wrong and it's only 10 % of the whole mind in magnitude. It works like a watchman. Before passing on any information to the subconscious mind for the record purpose, it checks and cross-checks, should this information be trusted or not. Should it act on this information or not? It also checks whether there is something similar to this available in the store i. e. It does the matching and mapping with the available records in the well organized library of events, things, persons and situations in the subconscious mind.
It's an important link between subconscious mind and the action that we take to fulfill our desires or complete our physical journey on this planet . It acts like a guard. Its logical function helps us to decide whether we should take particular action or not. E.g. If someone asks you to jump in to the well, Will you simply do it? No. It's not logical. It is meaningless.
If someone asks you to murder someone, will you do it, just like that? No. Your conscious mind will prompt you that it's not right. It's not good for you. This is how conscious mind saves and protects us.
But when our conscious mind starts taking decisions based on past experiences alone, we are in trouble.
It's that part of mind, which is the most powerful. It is approx 90% of the whole mind.
It contains all the information from our past, till yesterday night. All past includes past lives also. It also knows what has happened during the prenatal period i. e. when we were in the womb. Subconscious mind as opposed to conscious mind, doesn't have logic, discrimination, sense of good or bad and right or wrong.
When we want to do something, conscious mind asks for it and depending on the records, it allows or doesn't allow. This is a very basic explanation. e. g. when one wants to smoke for the first time, - conscious mind decision - the person gets cough. This is rejection from subconscious mind. Because there is no such record available since the person is smoking for the first time. So, it tries to protect you from doing that.
But if one decides to continue smoking - conscious decision - than, because of repetitive conscious actions, subconscious create new record and because it doesn't have logical function, it feels like you want this. And if you smoke at a particular time, then, it registers that also. Now, once this is done, you are on an auto pilot mode. At the registered time, like an obedient servant, it reminds you to smoke. It will create the situations, whereby your smoking will be facilitated. This happens when you operate out of conscious mind only.
The way subconscious mind stores information and creates situations, is unique for each and every person and the way the incidence is perceived by the person also differ from person to person. I had 3 cases of stammering.
In one case reason was fear of parent shouting. In another case, the client was stopped from expressing his thoughts, he being the smallest member of the family.
In the third case, it was due to confused thoughts.
Actually subconscious mind is the link between conscious mind and our Higher Self. Our Higher Self contains all the information for our current life. We can access that info through intuition. If, we allow ourselves to operate out of subconscious mind rather than conscious mind, we have a complete, satisfying and fulfilling life.
But what happens is, conscious mind says I want to smoke. Even after rejection from subconscious mind, one continues smoking. Then, it's like making his subconscious mind his slave. Intuitive capacity becomes dormant. This is one side.
Now on the other side, many times, subconscious hinders the process. e. g. One has experienced breach of trust from the friend, in some past life. And as we know, it’s a big emotional trauma. This incident gets registered. Now in current life, there are no friends who will ditch. Consciously one wants to trust the friends. But at very mention of the word FREINDS subconscious starts sending alert signals. No matter how hard one tries to believe in friends, there is no smooth relationship or no friends at all. This is how root cause of our problems lies in the subconscious mind.
So, we need to balance between operating out of conscious mind and subconscious mind.
Subconscious mind is so powerful that it creates situations as per the info stored in it. It is like a powerful boat or steamer in the sea. It contains everything that you need to sail and reach your destination.
But, if you don't remove anchor , you won't be able to even start the journey. In our case this anchor is the hook of the past.
Anger, hatred, regret, traumatic memories, bad experiences, fears, grief, sadness, guilt, shame, etc. are all anchors.
So, you know everything about Law of attraction, you know you have powerful mind and you have faith in your expertise.
Still, if you don't remove the anchor, i. e. Hooks from the past, you won't be able to use power of your subconscious mind to create the life of your choice.
Now question arises - if I allow myself to operate out of subconscious mind, how do I know that if it is coming from the Higher Self or is it coming out of the stored past records? As per my own experiences, if you want to do something and if everything falls in place, it is the guidance from Higher Self. But if, at every stage you are experiencing problems, then you should think and rethink about the conscious desire.
Still if you feel that you have to do what you have decided to do, then work on subconscious mind and find out roots of the problem.
Language of subconscious mind is feelings, emotions, thoughts, imagination, and intuition. More your conscious mind and subconscious mind are in alignment with each other and ultimately with Soul, more you are happy and peaceful within which will help you to create life of your choice.
e. g., at a very early stage of my life, I saw one Magic Show by the famous magician, Late Mr. K. Lal. As a kid I was mesmerized by what he did. On that day, after seeing the show, first thought that came into my mind was, I should learn this. But I didn't express that. I thought, why would he teach me? I forgot about it slowly. After graduation, I thought, if I want to earn good money, being from commerce line, pursuing CA is the good option. (Conscious mind - logical thinking). But my heart was all for science. So I could complete Inter CA in first attempt, but couldn't complete final CA. There were many problems and hindrances. Finally I left doing CA course.
I allowed things to be as they were. But today, I am spreading magic into people's lives by using hypnosis and advanced methods. My learning was completely facilitated. I have the best teacher in this field. No hindrances. I enjoyed learning it from my heart.
I am doing what my heart wanted to do as a kid. As a kid rather than just enjoying and forgetting about it, my first thought was - I want to learn this.
I am sure the satisfaction and rewards, I have today from my profession is matchless.
Problem arises when conscious mind and subconscious mind are not aligned with each other.
We have to work on mind, if alignment is not there. Sometimes we have to let go of conscious mind's desires, like becoming CA; if it is not in alignment with our Higher Purpose.
It’s high time; we understand our highest friend - our own mind - in its right perspective. Align our conscious and subconscious minds with each other and ultimately with our Soul. And start using its power and qualities to create a healthy, wealthy, peaceful, loving and fulfilling life.
Mind is a valuable gift given by God to us to create what we want.
This happens when you have freed yourself from past experiences, traumas, fears etc. you will see everything falling in place. You will meet right people at a right time and place without taking hard efforts.
Connection between Past Life Regression and Spirituality.
To understand how Spirituality and Past Life Regression or Regression work is connected, I will first attempt to explain in simple words, what Spirituality means as per my understanding. After that I will try to explain Regression work. So that, I can establish connection between the two.
As per my understanding, Spirituality is about Soul or Spirit or Aatma as we know in India. We here in India, know that Soul is eternal and ever existing. So, when Soul assumes human body, there is some purpose behind it. It's purpose is not only to clear Sanchit Karma. It's purpose is also to learn some lessons and evolve. Some of the many different lessons for the Soul are - to learn patience, to gather courage, to earn self-confidence, to learn to love self or others unconditionally, etc. Now when we talk about such Higher aspects and decide to live as per the higher purpose and try to understand reasons behind taking birth, we are talking about Spirituality. In short, when we are focusing on the purpose of taking birth and relate day to day activities or events happening in our life with the life purpose, we are embracing Spirituality. This is my simple understanding about Spirituality. Now about Regression work.
Basic principle of regression work is, - stop blaming outer environment and people for our current problems and look within to find the solutions.
When we look within, we connect with our purpose. I will explain this with two examples.
1) In one case, during a regression session, a boy failed in one subject during graduation. He hadn't expected that from himself. He felt very bad about Self and was not able to accept the failure. This was affecting his job in the form of problems at work place.
In fact, his father had accepted him as he is and didn't scold him for that failure. When I asked him about one good thing in all his negative experience, his answer was, "I experienced how my father loves me unconditionally !"
That was amazing moment for me as well... That brought tears to my eyes....!!! So, in this case, Spiritually speaking, the event of failure was planned to experience the unconditional love.
2) In this 2nd case also, my client came to me because of problems he was facing in the job. When I regressed the client, he went back in time to his 10th std. age where he had issues with his father. In this case, because of the short tempered nature, his father punished him. When I asked him how this event has helped him, he answered that he had decided to be a self sufficient and independent person....Not depending even on his father.
So, Spiritually speaking, this event was planned by him so that, he can make hims elf self-sufficient. Also, when we go for past life Regression, we acknowledge our eternal existence and also understand that lesson from the past life which was planned but not learnt by us or the stored emotions from the past life which are affecting our current life relationships....? So, this is how regression work connects people to the true but hidden purpose behind any problems or situations in the life and the purpose of taking rebirth.
So, this is how, when we opt for the regression for the solutions of our problems, we are opting for the path of Spirituality.
What is regression, and how it helps in solving current life problems:
Regression work is a process of bringing what is there in your subconscious mind which is governing your life, into consciousness so that you can understand how your life is governed and how you have always been the creators of your own life. In order to achieve this goal, it is obviously very essential that the whole process of regression involves Client's conscious mind too.
Thus, the client is never put to the unconscious state.
This process also makes you realise how powerful you are and also gives you confidence that if it's you who has created problems, then it's you only who can create positive and beautiful life.
As a therapist, one should always empower clients to take charge of their own life.
For that, basically, client has to be ready to release the blame on other people. Otherwise, sessions doesn't help. I do understand that it is very difficult to take responsibility for the things or problems for which we have blamed someone else for lifelong. It needs lot of courage to accept the responsibility of our own life. By taking responsibility, I don't mean that client should blame themself and feel guilty about it.
But healing happens only after acceptance in the terms- "I am the creator of my own life". Good news for the people who want to resolve their issues but are afraid of to let go of their control and have other fears like all the personal data getting revealed to the therapist: People who are control-freak and want to have steering in their hands, can't go back in the past. It's myth that, during trance sessions, therapist takes control of the people. So people who don't want to let go of the control, totally hesitate from trance sessions. Reality is - during trance state one has to let go of control of OWN conscious mind over the subconscious mind.
They just have to allow subconscious mind to give information. It's like if I ask you what happened 2 years back? Probably one may be able to reply it out of conscious memory. If I ask you what happened when you were 10 years old? You may have to think for a while but you may be able to answer me out of conscious memory.
But if I ask you what happened when you were 10 days old? You don't remember it consciously. But your subconscious mind remembers it. It has all the memories stored not only from current life but also from the past lives. And as for the Soul, various lifetimes are continuous journey, incidences happened in previous lifetimes affect our current life as good as incidence happened in our current life during childhood affects us.
So letting go of the conscious control only means not trying to answer from the conscious memories; but allowing answers to come from subconscious mind.
To reach subconscious mind, the trance state is a must. Otherwise there is no need to induce any trance state.
Secondly, the subconscious mind will bring out only the relevant information needed during the therapy and not all the data. Thirdly, the therapist has no interest to poke into your past and accumulate your data for no reason. A successful therapist handles many cases and if he/she goes on unnecessarily accumulating data from all clients he/she would get bogged down by the "psyche" involved in each story and would go mad one day.
Do you think any sane therapist would invite that ? No way... So, just chill, therapist cannot take control of you during the session.
Being Intuitive or psychic for a few is a coveted dream and for some other few it could be a scary thing. For the ones who are quite aware and are not only gifted but are also perseverant about their abilities, it is a coveted dream come true, as they always longed for it. It is scary for those who think of being psychic, having intuition etc is some mumbo jumbo and in case it is true then it according to them must have been relating to some black magic.
It's time that we all should be aware that Intuition is a little beyond the usual five senses - touch, smell, taste, vision, and hearing. In that sense, we could term it as a sixth sense or as some call it Extra Sensory Perception (ESP). Let's understand what this Intuition is then all about......
Intuition as the Webster's Dictionary defines it, is "The immediate knowing or learning of something without the conscious use of reasoning, instantaneous apperception."
Every human being has this sixth sense to at least some extent. It can be developed and practised and has enormous potential to change human life for better. It operates without the earthly limitations of time and space. Many great scientists, authors, actors, artists, and many successful businessmen have been using the intuition and followed the direction and or solutions that travel through it, extensively for their benefit and for the benefit of the mankind.
Many of us have had some experiences like getting a phone call from the very person about whom we were just thinking, meeting that very person on the way about whom we had strongly felt of talking to but we did not have/remember his/her telephone number. Many of us have many times said," I somehow knew that it would happen this way" or "I did have a gut feel that it would happen this way but I couldn't tell because I did not have explainable source of this information" or "I think I have seen this place earlier, but the fact is that I never travelled to this part of the country anytime before"..............This is Intuition and just Intuition.
The intuition can be of different types such as Voice of the heart or Soul, Telepathy, psycho kinesis, precognition, clairvoyance, clairaudience, psychometry, automatic writing etc.
In order to facilitate the intuition, we must have a calm and clear mind, open for subliminal perceptions. The mind has to be sensitive enough to perceive what comes in a flash and remember and then act upon it. The easier ways to keep your mind calm, clear and totally open to such subliminal perceptions is to bring it to an altered state of consciousness. That can be done through self-hypnosis or by bringing your brain oscillations down from the beta level to theta level. The brain of an average human being oscillates at about 14 to 21 cycles per second in the beta state and about 4-7 cycles per second in the theta state. The method of bringing the oscillation rate of brain down to the desired state is professionally taught and can be learnt by anyone who undergoes training in Silva Ultra Mind ESP course and that in Hypnotherapy. Once you are control of your brain levels and you are absolutely focussed to such an extent that the external noises do not disturb you at the given point in time, but in fact, add to your concentration then you can get connected to the power of your own intuition. In fact, this is just a beginning to understand, perceive and experience the Intuition. Once you get used to recognising, knowing and welcoming it, then sky is the limit for the veracity of the intuition experiences and there will also be no limits on the way it will show up. What you essentially require for it is the ability to recognise it, welcome it and also utmost importantly believe it. There is no intuition for the ones who do not believe it, it simply does not exist for them.
So go ahead and experience intuition, its within you! Bring out this power within to change the world out there for you !!
