Unwinding Unconscious Beliefs
The Law of Attraction tells us we attract what we think. Many of us go to great lengths to “think positively” intending to attract that perfect someone, job, car or house... but when we have unconscious limiting beliefs running beneath the surface of our conscious ones they derail our positive intentions. We can tell ourselves we matter and deserve the very best but if we have unconscious programs from childhood lurking in the shadows, telling us we are bad, undeserving, forever a victim or must be punished, we can chant affirmations until the cows come home but we won’t manifest our dreams.
Pioneering psychologist, Carl Jung, termed the parts of ourselves, good and bad, that lay unclaimed within us as “shadow.” Our limited and unconscious beliefs act as the chains that bind these parts and keep them hidden, even from ourselves. The only way we see them is if we project them outward onto other people and circumstances. Because we cannot see them it is very difficult to access and heal these parts without help. We know they are there, however, because we are locked into destructive patterns and illnesses, unable to claim who we want to be.
In his book “The Biology of Belief” Biologist Bruce Lipton notes that a surprising 95% of our actions are based upon unconscious beliefs and programs. As youngsters we build a view of the world based on our experiences. Most of this world view is locked into place within the first 5 years of our lives. At this young age we usually see the world revolving around ourselves and our needs. When we cry we are fed or our diaper is changed. If this doesn’t happen we internalize the lack of response and think Mommy and Daddy neglect us because of who we are, or are not, instead of because they were preoccupied with their own dramas and demons. Based on these early perceptions we create limited beliefs about the world, like “I don’t matter,” that become embedded into our psyches and imprinted upon our souls. We all have these roadmaps etched into the very fabric of our being, guiding our thoughts and creating the filters through which we experience the world. The ancient Vedics of India called these illusionary perceptions “maya.” Much as we don’t notice the color of our sunglasses’ tint, we can’t see maya; it is the very lens we see the world through.
Body, Mind AND SOUL Connection
When we were young and had a test we were not prepared for at school we would feel sick the morning of the exam. We are all aware of the mind-body connection. What has been forgotten in our culture, however, is that just as our mind affects our body, our eternal spirit or soul, acts as an unconscious energetic blueprint for our minds and bodies. The ancient Shamans see illness, at all levels, as a direct result of energetic imprints on our soul. They know that if they treat us at the level of the soul, or Lightbody, first, it will subsequently change our mind and body. They call this “working upstream.” It is the equivalent of using a magnet to move a group of metal filings rather than picking them up one by one. They know that without removing an energetic imprint from the Lightbody, the mind and the body will continue to download our old roadmaps and unconsciously recreate what they always have. Shamanic work is especially effective because it is directed at the shadow imprints that keep us from healing and manifesting our dreams. Once they’re addressed and removed we are free to soar!
