subconscious mind review

In the last email (see email 10) I revisited the concept of original potential and introduced the idea that early programming has influenced the expression of innate potential. Parts of the self retreat in response to what is viewed as threatening in the environment.


As children, we are highly vulnerable to external messaging and via fear based responses we learn to adapt our nature in accordance with what is expected by our powerful caregivers. This creates an internal chaos that is often carried from childhood into adulthood.

Remember, we are meant to grow, expand, learn, and thrive. This is our innate or original potential.

However, the stubborn subconscious mind works hard to preserve “what is.” The “what is” is the programmed ways of being, the beliefs, the thought, feeling and behavior habits that have been instilled in the little vulnerable mind (aka cow paths).

“What is” is often hardwired by a painful fear of rejection, and abandonment.

So, while one part of the self struggles to seek expression, another part of the self seeks to maintain paths of least resistance (cow paths). Remember the subconscious mind is literal and not able to determine what is in our best interest. These are two opposing forces. The push for growth and the pull to maintain the status quo results in internal chaos that creates frustration, depletes willpower, and often results in people settling for “what is.”

Experiencing chronic frustration around the achievement of our expectations, dreams and desires can lead people to throw their hands in the air, and resign themselves to accepting their “fate.”
The underlying belief is “I am not powerful enough to influence the conditions or circumstances in my life.”

This painful belief leads to adopting measures that can be viewed as self-loving. Anger, addictions, depression, and anxiety be adaptive attempts to giving meaning to challenges and to sooth the self but only serve to make unhealthy cow paths more entrenched. We then come to accept an image of ourselves that is not congruent with potential.

Again, I would like to congratulate you for sticking with me through this series. We are building an important foundation for beginning to understand why we operate as we do.

The majority of individuals who access services at Hypnosis for Life have, at one time or another: 1) made good use of traditional clinical psychology services  2) made good use of needed medication  3) attended community funded support programs (community counselling, 12 step programs and/or treatment centers).

These options provide initial needed relief, however, relapse is common. Challenges tend to re-occur until the subconscious mind has fully accepted and absorbed new paths of least resistance (aka cow paths).
