Stop Giving Away Your Super Powers

Visualization gives you access to the control panel of your subconscious abilities.

It allows you to tap into that bottomless sea of creative energy hidden deep within you, so that you can accomplish anything you desire in life.

And your subconscious is always working, quietly behind the scenes, to bring you whatever you ask of it – with your mental images and your emotions.

It’s always waiting for orders on what to do next.

And it will always do whatever you command of it, without question… and…

Without regard to whether or not the command was intentional.

Or whether the command good for you, or bad for you.

It just does what you tell it to do, through your visualization and your feeling, without resistance or argument.

You see…

Learning to use your own creative power is more about learning to *stop* letting other people use it for you.

You’re already attracting whatever you think about, visualize, and feel the strongest and most often, on any given day.

Because those images and feelings are the commands that your subconscious is always following, as it guides all of your habits throughout the day.

And how do other people access the control panel of your subconscious mind?

With stories.

We’re hard-wired to respond to stories.

Stories reach right in there and start pushing all the buttons for us, creating mental movies and all the emotions that go along with them, right on the spot.

This is great when we’re exposed to stories meant to help us achieve more, do more, and *BE* more.

Stories that empower us and give us hope in our own abilities, our own strength, our own personal power to respond to life’s challenges… to learn and to grow and to enjoy the ride…

But…

That’s not really the type of story you’ll see when you actually start to pay attention, is it?

Tune into any mainstream news network at any time of the day and you’re not likely to see a story about how we, as individuals, are responsible for our own destinies.

You won’t see stories about how we’re stronger, smarter, and more capable than we tend to assume.

No.

In fact, you’ll usually see the exact opposite…

Stories about how we’re all helpless victims. Pawns in somebody else’s global game of chess.

Stories about victimhood. Helplessness. Powerlessness. Oppressor versus oppressed.

Most of the stories we’re told are designed to tap into our subconscious mind and shape us into perpetual victims: Nothing more than cogs in a machine.

We all have within us this infinite creative power to reshape ourselves and the world around us.

So why not use it?

Take control of it.

Don’t let other people use it for you.

Guard your mental movies and the stories you tell yourself as if your life depended on it…

And you’ll quickly see your life improve as you prove to yourself that it’s true.

Belief Part 5: Wiping the Boogers of Humiliation from Your Memory

Nothing shapes your beliefs about yourself faster than direct experience.

And, sometimes, people form limiting beliefs about themselves in early childhood that haunt them throughout the rest of their lives.

All it takes is one powerfully negative experience to tarnish your self-image, cripple your confidence, and limit your self-expression and your ability to connect with others.

Once I had a client come to me because he couldn’t speak to women.

Any women.

He’d just shut down in their presence…

…Averting eye contact, stuttering, and freezing up like a deer in the headlights.

He was a young man, 23, handsome and intelligent.

Nobody would have guessed he had such trouble talking to women.

But, he’d never even had a girlfriend because of his condition.

After some digging we traced the cause of his problem back to an experience he had in the 5th grade when he tried to talk to a girl he liked.

He approached her in the cafeteria during lunch and she stood up, pointed right at his face…

…and screamed…

“Eww! You have a booger hanging out of your nose!”

He was humiliated.

Then everybody else then joined in.

Dozens of other 5th graders laughing and pointing, as he stood there in shock.

Now he wasn’t just humiliated, he was completely destroyed.

At that age, in that vulnerable state, the first time he had ever worked up the nerve to show interest in a girl…

…Everything blew up in his face.

And that painful experience became so deeply, subconsciously connected with the thought of expressing interest in women that he simply couldn’t do it for the next 13 years.

The belief he developed as a result was that he was simply incapable of speaking to women – that he was doomed to die alone.

Now, obviously, the belief he should have formed was that you should always check for boogers hanging out of your nose before approaching someone you find attractive…

But deeply rooted pain like this is immune to logic and reason.

By the time the traumatic experience settles in, no amount of intellectual understanding of the situation will overcome the immense fear you feel after the fact.

Luckily for him, NLP provides several quick fixes for cases like this.

Since experiences like these hold you back in life by automatically replaying, like a video on repeat in your head, bringing back all of the pain of the original situation every time you find yourself in a similar situation…

All you need to do is edit the video.

In this case, I had him pull up the experience in his mind’s eye, as if he were viewing it on a television. Then I had him imagine that, in his hand, he was holding a remote control which he could use to turn down the volume on the experience until he was watching a silent movie of the memory.

Then, I instructed him to turn the color saturation down until it was a black and white silent movie.

Finally, he pressed the zoom button until the picture was shrunk down to nothing.

And that simple visualization exercise allowed him to wipe the booger of humiliation from his memory.

After that, he was able to easily talk to women without that painful experience flooding back into his mind like a wartime PTSD flashback.

Is it really that easy?

Often times, yes.

If you have a single, overpowered negative memory from a vulnerable time in your formative years, it can often be removed as quickly as it was put there.

Visualization is a powerfully effective tool for freeing yourself from those types of traumatic experiences…

And my Freedom from Your Past subliminal hypnosis session uses a very similar technique to subliminally turn down the volume on the excessive emotional impact of any traumatic memories you may have.

Tomorrow we’ll talk about creating brand new experiences from scratch, and if it’s really possible to create a whole new reality just by visualizing it until you believe it.
