The subconscious mind is influenced during times of high
vulnerability (childhood and/or stressful events as adults).
When we are vulnerable decisions are made to protect the self,
and to enhance well-being. These decisions may seem realistic, practical and
helpful at the time.
However, the subconscious
mind, is a servo-mechanism and is not capable of distinguishing whether or not these decisions
are helpful in the present.
The subconscious mind
has one job-to maintain the status quo.
As indicated on the
homepage, the subconscious mind is not our soul or our spirit. It does not have
the ability to determine if a past decision is in our best interest, or if it is
applicable to the here and now.
The decision to
respond to stressful events through anxiety, depression, anger or addiction
must be viewed as being driven by the desire to care for the self (original
intention). However, the manifested outcomes of these decisions eventually creates
challenges on many levels.
- The part that seeks to
maintain the status quo is often not in alignment with current goals. If this
part is not re-educated we simply will not reach our full potential.
- The manifested outcomes of past decisions become subconsciously hard-wired, and hinders what we wish to achieve in the present, and ensures
that our goals for the future will be thwarted.
This work views all challenges
as realistic outcomes of decisions that were made, and cemented, at a time of
vulnerability. Fundamentally, we seek to
protect the integrity of the self but create ways of being that do not serve us
in the long run. All presenting concerns
are viewed as natural, normal, realistic, and practical outcomes (manifestations)
that are a result of positive initial intentions.
