This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
For the past couple days, I’ve been pretending that I had a Cosby life (like in the good days of the Cosby Show). I was pretending my parents were educated professionals who were encouraging, loving, and supportive. I noticed that while I was pretending this was my backstory, I felt more confident. Is changing your belief about yourself really that simple?
Yes, it’s that simple.
The reason you feel more confident is because your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between what’s real and what’s imagined. The subconscious is the emotional mind. It can’t determine whether the image you’re giving to it is real or pretend.
When you build an image in your mind, and you’re emotionally attaching to it in that moment, you start manifesting that image in the form of the emotional healing you’d experience if you actually did it.
Whether it’s real or something you’re making up—your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference.
It operates as if it was real.
When you’re doing this, you’re creating parallel emotions, as if it was real and as if you’re experiencing it in your body.
If you keep doing this through constant space repetition, you’ll transform everything in your life, so that it matches that belief system.
It doesn’t matter what you’re doing this with—the hardest part is being consistent. Conceptually, it’s easy to understand. You could explain this to a sixth grader and they’d get it.
Breaking the old patterns consistently is the hard part.
In the Bible, Christ talks about being like a child, because a child doesn’t doubt anything. Whatever you tell them, they automatically believe it. They’ll go into character around that belief. He says the kingdom of heaven belongs to the children.
He was basically saying it’s as easy as being like a child. Just use your imagination to build a new image.
All the other crap people told you that you’re operating with is what makes it difficult.
