Stressed out? Time to Explore Your Mental Diet?

Undoubtedly you’ve heard the phrase you are what you eat? The nutrients we consume are the building blocks of our physical bodies. The same is true of our mental bodies, we are continuously taking in data from our environment. Those bits of information become our thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes. And just like physical food, not everything you absorb mentally is going to be good for you. In small amounts unhealthy food, and unhealthy environments won’t do much harm. However, when we are repeatedly exposed to negative environmental influences they slowly become absorbed into our subconscious.

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth”

Prolonged exposure to negative situations will eventually create those situations in our lives, and we can find ourselves behaving in ways that are contrary to what we know is right and best for us. This is called proof by assertion, as expressed by Lenin “A lie told often enough becomes the truth” this is because suggestions whether verbal, or visually inferred, over time, become conditioned into our mental fabric.

“with repetition your defenses are lowered”

This is how culture and group consensus are formed, and people can be conditioned to do the most humanitarian and loving acts as well as convinced to commit the most horrendous acts. Desensitization is an important aspect of this conditioning process. Think about this; the first time you see something that is offensive or repugnant to your sensibilities, you have a very strong emotional aversion to it. However, with each subsequent exposure that reaction is softened, with repetition your defenses are lowered and soon the thing that was initially shocking or repugnant, becomes common place, and we develop a sense of indifference around it. Thus, what was once resisted, becomes accepted by the subconscious mind. Once accepted we are most likely to act in accordance with the newly conditioned perspective, and behave accordingly.

“the subconscious mind that does not discern… real or just entertainment”

Child psychiatrist, Paramjit T. Joshi, founding director of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center’s Office for the Prevention of Violence states, “Children who are raised surrounded by violence develop an emotional immunity to it…and often grow up to be the perpetrators of the same violence.” Though we may not ever actually witness a violent act, we are constantly bombarded with violence in television programs, video games and movies, as a result we have all become greatly desensitized. So, you might say “well it’s just television, and I know it’s not real”, and we may even enjoy the thrill of such entertainment on the conscious level. But, I am not speaking about the conscious mind, this discussion is about the subconscious mind that does not discern whether an experience is real or just entertainment, this is why awareness is important.

Studies have shown that the average child has witnessed 8,000 murders on television by the time he or she graduates from elementary school. While it is true that children are much more suggestible, adults are vulnerable too; We are all conditioned by our environments on a subconscious level, especially through repetition.

“The quality of what we feed our minds…more important, than what we eat”

So the bottom line is; The quality of what we feed our minds, is in many ways even more important, than what we eat, because what we absorb mentally is what we eventually become, attract, and do. If we do not take control of our God given mental faculties of consciously choosing to feed our subconscious mind with the things we want to see, do, and become; we are missing out on one of the most underutilized super powers we hold as human beings.

This is precisely why I am adding Subliminal sessions to my therapeutic services. Let’s face it as I discussed above, we are all being subliminally programmed in every moment from influences in our environment. Whether it be our family and friends, teachers, the news, music, films and television shows. Our brains are always receiving information from our environment and recording that information. I just invite you to consider how powerful this reality is and begin to take steps to use it to your advantage, rather than allow others who may not have your best interests at heart to use it against you for the purposes of marketing and political propaganda.

This is how Subliminal sessions work;

While my traditional hypnotic sessions require that you be in a safe, quiet place, relaxing comfortably, where you will not be disturbed, (never while operating heavy machinery). These new subliminal sessions can be listened to at any time during your waking hours. Just play them in the background as you engage in your daily activities even while driving. The subliminal suggestions will play at a very low level to support your subconscious absorption of the changes you desire. What’s so wonderful about  these new subliminal sessions is they’re completely customizable, you can choose your own music, decide whether you want soothing or upbeat music, and much like my hypnotic sessions; you dictate the changes you want to make in your life and I master the recording with healing brainwave frequencies to support you. All you do is  listen daily and watch changes take place in your world. Contact me to learn more.
