Transcripts

Speaker:

The subconscious mind stores all conscious, unconscious splits,

Speaker:

all ratios of perception that are imbalanced,

Speaker:

the superconscious mind stores all ratios of perceptions that are balanced.

Speaker:

That's a topic that you probably have run around in your head,

Speaker:

how do I reprogram my mind?

Speaker:

But let's take it and go down the rabbit hole with it.

Speaker:

Every time you get a stimulus from the outside world,

Speaker:

you experience that through what are called receptors.

Speaker:

You have eyesight receptors, audio receptors,

Speaker:

smell receptors, taste receptors, tactile feeling receptors.

Speaker:

In fact, you have many, many other receptors, temperature receptors,

Speaker:

pain receptors, pressure receptors.

Speaker:

Each of these receptors stimulate a nerve receptor by

Speaker:

the stimulus that you have, and that causes what is called a graded potential,

Speaker:

which is goes down the nerve of the receptor.

Speaker:

And if it hits a certain threshold it gets into an action potential and

Speaker:

stimulates another nerve and that cascading series

Speaker:

cord and up the brain and into the higher areas or lower areas,

Speaker:

depending on the threshold. If it's subthreshold,

Speaker:

you may not even be conscious of it. If it's above threshold,

Speaker:

you may all of a sudden become aware of it. All

Speaker:

the information that goes in there,

Speaker:

as it goes up into the brain and up the spinal cord,

Speaker:

it gets associated with other nerves.

Speaker:

And those can contain experiences that you've had

Speaker:

previously that get associated with the stimulus.

Speaker:

If you've had,

Speaker:

if you've gone out on a date and every time you've gone on a date,

Speaker:

it's a guy with dark hair. And you find out that every time you go out there,

Speaker:

he becomes a certain erratic behavior.

Speaker:

And you associate that with dark haired guys. ,

Speaker:

you're going to have associations with that in your response to that stimulus is

Speaker:

now going to be a perception of avoid.

Speaker:

If you've had an experience of a bunch of nice pleasureful,

Speaker:

pleasant things with the dark haired guy, you may associate with something, 'oh,

Speaker:

I like that, It's attractive,

Speaker:

I can trust that.' So every experience that you have

Speaker:

that from these stimuli of all these receptors go into the brain

Speaker:

and summate into experiences

Speaker:

through what they call associative, interneurons, and these interneurons,

Speaker:

the greater the number of neurons as you go up in the brain,

Speaker:

the greater the number, and as you go down in the spinal cord,

Speaker:

there are very few. In fact, you've probably heard of a mono synaptic reflex,

Speaker:

where somebody hits your knee with a reflex hammer and you just stimulate.

Speaker:

That's something that you don't have any option over, stimulus, response.

Speaker:

And so if something comes up in your life that you have a stimulus response,

Speaker:

that means you don't really have any control over it.

Speaker:

But as you go up into the brain, you get more and more interneurons,

Speaker:

more and more associations made.

Speaker:

And the probability with the greater sample side of

Speaker:

50. That means that there's advantages and disadvantages to that stimulus.

Speaker:

And you're more active, not reactive,

Speaker:

because you have more options on how to perceive that stimulus.

Speaker:

And so you're free to decide to do something or not.

Speaker:

There's a area of the brain called the amygdala,

Speaker:

and anywhere from the amygdala kind of down into the hindbrain is where we

Speaker:

react before we think. And anywhere from that area up in the cortex area,

Speaker:

we think before react. So if we have a stimulus,

Speaker:

the higher we go in the brain,

Speaker:

the higher the probability of thinking before reacting.

Speaker:

And the more it's down in the primitive part of the brain,

Speaker:

the more we react without thinking.

Speaker:

So every time you have a stimulus that comes in,

Speaker:

if you have had nothing but positive response,

Speaker:

or nothing but negative response from previous experiences,

Speaker:

you'll keep in the primitive part of the brain,

Speaker:

because it will be registered as something to seek, prey,

Speaker:

or something to avoid, predator. And you'll have an impulse towards,

Speaker:

or you'll have an instinct way.

Speaker:

So anytime you've had a stimulus through those receptors that have come in,

Speaker:

that you've associated only positive with, no negative, or only negative with,

Speaker:

no positive,

Speaker:

in the lower areas of the brain where there's less interneurons and

Speaker:

associations, the more reactive you're going to be,

Speaker:

the less you're going to think about it, faster you're going to respond.

Speaker:

And those perceptions that have been stored in an imbalanced way

Speaker:

are called the subconscious mind.

Speaker:

The subconscious mind stores all previously imbalanced,

Speaker:

dissociations that you perceived about things. For instance,

Speaker:

let's say you meet somebody and you're infatuated with them,

Speaker:

and you're conscious of the upsides, unconscious of the downsides,

Speaker:

you're ignoring the downsides.

Speaker:

You have a form of ignorance and you're not seeing the whole individual,

Speaker:

you're just seeing the upsides and you infatuate.

Speaker:

So now you have an impulse towards, like a prey you want to consume it.

Speaker:

And some of you've been in a situation you want to consume that person you're

Speaker:

infatuated with, literally.

Speaker:

And you also could meet somebody that you resent that you're conscious of the

Speaker:

downsides or unconscious of the upsides.

Speaker:

And now you're going to have an instinct to want to avoid them because they

Speaker:

represent predator and you want stay away from that, that's danger.

Speaker:

You have an impulse towards prey in an instinct away from predator,

Speaker:

seek and avoid. As a result of that,

Speaker:

those are associations that are made that now, if anybody reminds you of that,

Speaker:

secondary associations or you see a stimulus that

Speaker:

that, you immediately avoid or seek. And so again,

Speaker:

systems 1 thinking comes in where you're just reacting before you're thinking,

Speaker:

and it's a survival response for, you know, prey or predator,

Speaker:

seeking or avoiding.

Speaker:

And the subconscious mind stores all impulses and instincts,

Speaker:

all conscious and unconscious splits,

Speaker:

all imbalanced conscious and unconscious states,

Speaker:

that are part of the more primitive part of the brain,

Speaker:

where there's not as many associations for fast responses for survival.

Speaker:

And so when people have their subconscious mind running their life,

Speaker:

it's a survival mode and it's a subcortical area of

Speaker:

being involved.

Speaker:

And it's basically sitting there with seeking or avoiding mechanisms.

Speaker:

And so you're basically an automaton reacting to these misperceptions

Speaker:

and the associations you made previously and you're living sort of in the past

Speaker:

through trial and error from your experiences. But,

Speaker:

what happens if all of a sudden a stimulus comes in and it gets all the way into

Speaker:

the higher part of the brain where the sample side of associative neuron,

Speaker:

interneurons are there and you have a mean distribution of pain and pleasure,

Speaker:

positive and negative, a seek and avoid,

Speaker:

what happens is that most advanced part of the brain,

Speaker:

the medial prefrontal cortex and prefrontal cortex is sometimes called

Speaker:

the executive center, and what it does is it stops, assesses it,

Speaker:

looks at it, looks at the ratio, balances it,

Speaker:

and mitigates the polarities to it,

Speaker:

calms it down and governs it and takes and dampens the extremes of

Speaker:

polarity and make you think before you react. Now, the executive center,

Speaker:

every time you balance out your perceptions and govern yourself,

Speaker:

I call that the superconscious mind. You have the subconscious mind,

Speaker:

which is systems 1 thinking where you're emotional and you're reacting before

Speaker:

thinking. And the superconscious mind, sometimes called the transcendental mind,

Speaker:

or the spiritual conscious mind, it's got many names,

Speaker:

or the advanced part of the brain, forebrain,

Speaker:

where you're now having a mean distribution of positive and negative

Speaker:

associations,

Speaker:

because of all the neurons and all the experiences and they've been balanced

Speaker:

over time.

Speaker:

Because in your life you have events in your life you think are terrible,

Speaker:

and then a day, a week, a month, a year, five years later, you find out, oh,

Speaker:

there's some terrific in it. And there's things you think is terrific,

Speaker:

and then you find out over a day, week, month, a year,

Speaker:

you find out some downsides to it.

Speaker:

And so you accumulate in the highest part of the brain where the most amount of

Speaker:

associative interneurons are, you accumulate a balanced orientation,

Speaker:

the mean distribution of polarities.

Speaker:

And so therefore you are able to objectively perceive something,

Speaker:

instead of subjectively bias things with an opinion and a quick response.

Speaker:

For survival, you need that quick response, but for thrival, you don't.

Speaker:

If you want to master your life, the survival mentality is not where it's at.,

Speaker:

because the external world is going to keep running here.

Speaker:

All stimuli are going to run you. You're going to be extrinsically driven.

Speaker:

And you'll be an automaton reacting to all these stimuli out there that you

Speaker:

don't have much balanced view of.

Speaker:

The subconscious mind stores all conscious unconscious splits,

Speaker:

all ratios of perception that are imbalanced.

Speaker:

The superconscious mind stores all ratios of perceptions that are balanced.

Speaker:

So love and wisdom, philosophia,

Speaker:

the love of wisdom and the wisdom of love, are in the forebrain.

Speaker:

And you might say ignorance, phobias and philias,

Speaker:

fantasies and nightmares, pleasures and pains,

Speaker:

seeking and avoiding mechanisms, which are extrinsically driven,

Speaker:

are in the lower parts of the body,

Speaker:

mainly in the amygdala down into the hindbrain and spinal cord.

Speaker:

So if something is really black or white and it's just terrible,

Speaker:

absolutely bad,

Speaker:

your brain is going to fire off and you're going to react before you can think.

Speaker:

We've all been infatuated with somebody,

Speaker:

really infatuated and found ourselves not able to govern ourselves and did

Speaker:

things we went, 'ooh,

Speaker:

didn't expect that today.' Or been highly resentful and got into rage reactions

Speaker:

and really reacted and couldn't govern yourself.

Speaker:

That's the subconscious mind running around.

Speaker:

The superconscious mind is stable. It's not volatile.

Speaker:

It's poised and balanced, not vicissitude,

Speaker:

not going all over the place with emotional reactions. It's objective,

Speaker:

not subjective. It sees both sides, not one side.

Speaker:

It has relativity instead of absolutes. The gradation,

Speaker:

we have a gradation like a dimmer switch, from the higher part of the brain,

Speaker:

it dims down and governs it.

Speaker:

If you were to stimulate a nerve reflex and the advanced part of the

Speaker:

brain was not governing down all the way down below,

Speaker:

you'd get a spastic reflex called Babinsky reflex. But if you have a cortical,

Speaker:

a cortical control from the advanced part of the brain doing it,

Speaker:

you have a fine motor control.

Speaker:

You can't play a violin from the stimulus response down below,

Speaker:

but you can from mastering the part of the brain,

Speaker:

that's actually involved in governance, to make fine motor skills,

Speaker:

to be able to govern those, those very subtle systems.

Speaker:

They're not firing all or none. They're firing with gradations.

Speaker:

So when you're able to see both sides of an event,

Speaker:

when you first infatuate with somebody you eventually discover, well,

Speaker:

they're not what you thought.

Speaker:

And eventually you find out they got things you like and things you dislike.

Speaker:

And the things that you resent, you find out well, they're not what you thought.

Speaker:

They have things, you know, you see that you like after time.

Speaker:

Eventually you get to discover that the person you love has got both sides.

Speaker:

And therefore, when you're actually loving something,

Speaker:

you're able to see both sides simultaneously. Wilhelm Wundt,

Speaker:

who was the father of experimental science around 130 years ago,

Speaker:

said simultaneous contrast gets the executive center.

Speaker:

and the superconscious awareness. Sequential contrast,

Speaker:

where oscillating between emotions and going through a gyration like a bipolar

Speaker:

response, is when you're in systems 1 thinking,

Speaker:

you're emotional responding and you're in survival. Now,

Speaker:

most people don't want to live in survival unless there's a real emergency,

Speaker:

then thank God you got that kind of response.

Speaker:

I'm very grateful to have that ability to do that if a truck's about to hit me

Speaker:

or I'm about to get thrown from a horse or something,

Speaker:

you need to be able to react and respond quickly.

Speaker:

Or if somebody comes and bees about to sting or snakes about to bite you or

Speaker:

something, you need those responses. But 99% of our life,

Speaker:

99.9% of our life is not that extreme.

Speaker:

And so we want to live in our executive center and be reasonable and take

Speaker:

command. When you live in your executive center,

Speaker:

you're the master of your destiny. You're living by design.

Speaker:

You're choosing what you're going to do.

Speaker:

You mitigate the risk and rewards and you see both of them simultaneously.

Speaker:

But if you're not,

Speaker:

you're reacting and most people are highly reactive and they meet

Speaker:

somebody. When you go shopping,

Speaker:

if you don't have an agenda and a pre-planned agenda with foresight,

Speaker:

you're going to impulse buy because you're going to have sales people trying to

Speaker:

stimulate you and get you to be responded.

Speaker:

The mass media is constantly bombarding you with extremes of polarities

Speaker:

in order to get you to respond. Politicians,

Speaker:

religious leaders are trying to get you to respond with heaven or hell or

Speaker:

pleasure or pain or peace and war, the polarities.

Speaker:

And as long as you are vulnerable to that,

Speaker:

then you're an automaton reacting to people outside you and any area of your

Speaker:

life you're not governing in yourself, other people are running.

Speaker:

Any area of your life you don't take command and empower, by having both sides,

Speaker:

that's what I mean by empowerment, you're going to be run by somebody else. See,

Speaker:

if you're infatuated with somebody and you put them on a pedestal,

Speaker:

you'll minimize yourself,

Speaker:

you're too humble to admit what you see in them is inside you and so you're

Speaker:

disowning a part and that's a disempowerment.

Speaker:

If you're resenting somebody and you exaggerate yourself

Speaker:

admit what you see in them is inside you, you got a disowned part,

Speaker:

a disempowerment. Anytime you disown parts and judge somebody,

Speaker:

your impulses and instincts, your amygdala, your hindbrain,

Speaker:

are all going to fire off and you're going to be in survival mode.

Speaker:

Your autonomic nervous system is going to be into eating and rest and digest or

Speaker:

fight or flight responses. And the more polarized you are,

Speaker:

the more infatuated you are, the more you fear it's loss,

Speaker:

the more resentful you are to something, the more you fear it's gain,

Speaker:

the more you live in fear and distress.

Speaker:

There's only two forms of fears and distresses in your life.

Speaker:

The fear of loss of that which you seek and the fear of gain of that what you're

Speaker:

trying to avoid. Every fear that you ever faced is one of those.

Speaker:

And so when you're in survival 1 mode and you're emotionally reacting and you're

Speaker:

letting the stimulus outside you, you have an evoked potential,

Speaker:

not an actualized spontaneous potential where you're actually thinking and

Speaker:

planning yourself. So that's what happens when you're in the,

Speaker:

you might say systems 1 thinking, you're fast responding for survival,

Speaker:

but you're basically not in governance of your life.

Speaker:

And so your misperceptions of all those lopsided perceptions are running your

Speaker:

life. But if you balance out those perceptions,

Speaker:

you automatically bring blood, glucose, and oxygen up into the forebrain.

Speaker:

If you live by highest priority,

Speaker:

what's been found is everybody's got a hierarchy of values,

Speaker:

whenever you're living by your highest priority and you're living by real,

Speaker:

really the most important things in your life, the blood, glucose,

Speaker:

and oxygen goes into the forebrain and stimulus goes up in the forebrain,

Speaker:

gets associated and has more balanced, reasonable responses.

Speaker:

And you think before you react and you're now governed,

Speaker:

and you're somebody that people want to be magnetized to be around because you

Speaker:

have your life together.

Speaker:

Whoever is demonstrating and exemplifying mastery draws and magnetizes people

Speaker:

and opportunity to them. But if they're emotionally reacting, watch out,

Speaker:

unpredictability, uncertainty, and people don't like to be around uncertainties

Speaker:

and unpredictabilities, it's frightening sometime,

Speaker:

and they're going to create a chain reaction. Whatever emotions you have,

Speaker:

you create chain reactions. If you see extreme, you know,

Speaker:

sympathy or extreme anger on television, you can get all engaged in it,

Speaker:

it can run you. That's what the media is,

Speaker:

what they're trying to do to get you engaged, to watch their show,

Speaker:

to sell commercial time.

Speaker:

But if you actually are poised and present and balanced and purposeful,

Speaker:

because when you're living by highest value you're more objective and neutral,

Speaker:

you're purposeful, you have self-governance, self-mastery,

Speaker:

and you exemplify what's possible as a human being and you grow your potential,

Speaker:

because nothing's missing in your life.

Speaker:

You're not too proud or too humble to admit what you see in others inside you.

Speaker:

You embrace both sides of yourself.

Speaker:

How you going to love yourself if you're trying to get rid of one side and only

Speaker:

trying to get the other side?

Speaker:

Trying to get rid of half of yourself and trying to be only one sided is futile

Speaker:

and trying to change other people to live in your values or trying you trying to

Speaker:

live in other people's values is futile.

Speaker:

So systems 1 thinking is there for survival, but it's not thrival,

Speaker:

it's not mastery.

Speaker:

So for all these years I've been watching people do this and I see people have

Speaker:

struggles with that and they have futilities and frustrations and they

Speaker:

disempower their life.

Speaker:

And then they wonder why the world's running them and they become victims of

Speaker:

history, not masters of destiny. And they have false attribution bias.

Speaker:

They blame the things on the outside and exaggerate the negatives in

Speaker:

something and blame things on the outside you know, exaggerate the positives.

Speaker:

And as a result of that,

Speaker:

they're looking for something on the outside to save them.

Speaker:

And these lopsided perceptions are there.

Speaker:

If you go and you're highly infatuated and you got an addiction to somebody or

Speaker:

highly resentful and have a subdiction for something,

Speaker:

you go for therapy or go for somebody,

Speaker:

or come to me or somebody to try to balance it out.

Speaker:

And because you want control of your life again, because you've lost control.

Speaker:

And if it's really polarized,

Speaker:

you end up with bipolar condition and even dissociative conditions and sometimes

Speaker:

delusions and schizoid behaviors, if it's really extreme.

Speaker:

And that's what happens when you're in survival,

Speaker:

it can be extreme in order to capture prey and avoid predator,

Speaker:

you've got to accelerate the adrenaline and cortisol in order to really capture

Speaker:

the prey and do it.

Speaker:

So we really subjectively bias our realities when we're living there.

Speaker:

But the second we ask quality questions,

Speaker:

see the quality of our life's based on the quality of the questions we ask.

Speaker:

And a quality question is one that brings balance to the mind.

Speaker:

Pythagorus said this in his times, and Galen in his times,

Speaker:

and Asclepius in his times and throughout the ages,

Speaker:

almost all great minds knew this.

Speaker:

The quality of your life is based on the quality of the questions you ask.

Speaker:

Every time you have a positive without a negative or a negative without

Speaker:

positive, you have an ionic state.

Speaker:

And all ions are looking for their opposites to balance the chemistry.

Speaker:

And your brain has a homeostatic mechanism trying to balance its neurochemistry,

Speaker:

trying to balance its electronics. In the more primitive part of the brain

Speaker:

you have synapses that work by chemistry.

Speaker:

Then you go in the higher associations, you start working by electronics.

Speaker:

Then you go even further, you have photonics.

Speaker:

And finally at the very highest levels, you have literally entanglement,

Speaker:

which is the fastest system.

Speaker:

And that's there to conquer and overrule the impulses and instincts of the

Speaker:

systems 1 thinking. So,

Speaker:

if you ask questions that balance your mind,

Speaker:

you liberate yourself from the emotional baggage that's stored in the

Speaker:

subconscious mind. The subconscious mind stores all those imbalances,

Speaker:

all those lopsided associations,

Speaker:

all those things that you don't have control over in your life.

Speaker:

And those can come from previous experiences, all

Speaker:

previous splits in conscious and unconscious awareness,

Speaker:

things that we've injected into our lives by subordinates,

Speaker:

subordination to outer authorities.

Speaker:

If we meet a mother or father or preacher or teacher or somebody on the outside

Speaker:

that gives us a moral hypocrisy that we're supposed to live by

Speaker:

and then we can't, we beat ourselves up.

Speaker:

All those are stored in the subconscious mind,

Speaker:

sometimes called limiting beliefs or sabotaging components.

Speaker:

But the second we balance out our mind,

Speaker:

we don't have the phobias or the fantasies,

Speaker:

and we automatically have governance and we're now consciously aware and live by

Speaker:

design. Many years ago,

Speaker:

I started to ask how do I take a person out of their emergency response system,

Speaker:

danger response system sometimes, or fantasy response system,

Speaker:

and how do we get them to self mastery?

Speaker:

That's been my dream since I was literally 18 years old.

Speaker:

How do I get an individual to self mastery?

Speaker:

How do I help them break through those limitations of perception

Speaker:

and get a more of a mean distribution and see both sides of things, aware.

Speaker:

As Wilhelm Wundt says, that's the individual that's fully conscious.

Speaker:

See if you're conscious of something and unconscious of something,

Speaker:

you're not fully conscious.

Speaker:

When you see both sides simultaneously you have mindfulness, full consciousness,

Speaker:

sometimes called enlightenment.

Speaker:

And you have a homeostasis and balance in the mind.

Speaker:

And your autonomics are balanced. You have resilience, adaptability,

Speaker:

heart rate variability is enhanced. I mean, the physiological,

Speaker:

almost all the symptoms in your body that you face are feedback mechanisms to

Speaker:

try to balance your mind. Your brain is a homeostatic mechanism.

Speaker:

It was basically Walter Cannon wrote a book called 'The Wisdom of the Body' and

Speaker:

showed how the entire body is basically meant for homeostasis, balance.

Speaker:

No matter what the perturbing events on there,

Speaker:

the stimulus from those receptors are, you can maintain a balance.

Speaker:

So in order to do that, you can ask quality questions.

Speaker:

So I developed a system, which I call the Demartini Method,

Speaker:

which I teach in the Breakthrough Experience, on how to do exactly that,

Speaker:

how to go from system 1 to system 2 thinking.

Speaker:

How to go from the subconscious to the superconscious,

Speaker:

how to go from reacting to proacting,

Speaker:

how to sit there and being something that we're emotionally exaggerating ourself

Speaker:

with pride or shame or living in infatuation resentments

Speaker:

and we're gyrating all over the place and run externally,

Speaker:

to be able to live spontaneously inspired from within and see both sides and

Speaker:

not react, but actually proact, as a master,

Speaker:

instead of some mass conscious reaction that sensationalism brings.

Speaker:

And that's asking question, for instance, let's say in the Demartini Method,

Speaker:

let me give you some samples of the questions. Let's say you have something,

Speaker:

you see that your mother ridicules you and criticizes you or

Speaker:

something, or maybe your spouse does that. Your spouse is criticizing you.

Speaker:

It asks the question, what specific trait, action,

Speaker:

or inaction do you perceive this individual, my spouse,

Speaker:

displaying or demonstrating that I dislike or despise or hate most?

Speaker:

And I write down 'verbally criticizes me' and the content of

Speaker:

that is verbal criticism, the context is about the way I'm raising the children.

Speaker:

Great. Now you ask the next question.

Speaker:

Now you've defined what it is that you're reacting to that's been stacked up

Speaker:

through associations in your mind, somebody criticizing,

Speaker:

you've associated pain from that,

Speaker:

and you want to avoid that and withdraw from the man you love,

Speaker:

and by the way,

Speaker:

and you're most likely doing something that's challenging his values,

Speaker:

or you're somehow arrogant and need being brought back down,

Speaker:

back into authenticity, or he wouldn't be doing that.

Speaker:

It's part of a mechanism of bringing you into balance as well as you learning

Speaker:

how to balance yourself. And by the way,

Speaker:

if you don't balance yourself and learn the tools I'm about to show you here,

Speaker:

you're going to end up having to be run from the outside world.

Speaker:

People that don't listen to their physiology and psychology and govern

Speaker:

themselves from within,

Speaker:

have to be run by politics and religion on the outside to govern them.

Speaker:

That's where the moral hypocrisies and polarities come in,

Speaker:

which actually are counterproductive.

Speaker:

So what happens is you go in there and you now ask the question, okay me,

Speaker:

go to a moment where and when I've perceived myself

Speaker:

that same behavior. In Romans 2 in the biblical writings,

Speaker:

it basically showed that we never judge another person unless it's representing

Speaker:

a part of us that we're too humble or too proud to admit we have,

Speaker:

but we have what we see. And when we're judging them,

Speaker:

we're judging a part of ourselves stored in the subconscious mind,

Speaker:

it's causing impulse and instincts. That's why we're avoiding it.

Speaker:

So if all of a sudden you go in there and go, where do I do that?

Speaker:

And you stack up where it was, when it was, who'd you do it to,

Speaker:

and who perceived you that way. Where it was, when it was,

Speaker:

who perceived you doing that? And who did you do it to?

Speaker:

And you do it until the quantity of when you've done it and the quality of what

Speaker:

you've done is equal to what they've done,

Speaker:

and you level the playing field and you no longer have them down on this pit and

Speaker:

you up on this pride mode, but you kind of bring your pride down, because,

Speaker:

oh my God, I've done that, I've done the same thing, who am I to judged them?

Speaker:

And all of a sudden I realize, Hmm, I've done the same thing.

Speaker:

It calms down the reaction. It takes you out of the amygdala and the hindbrain,

Speaker:

and puts you back in the executive center. Then if you go and ask the question,

Speaker:

go to a moment where,

Speaker:

and when you perceive this individual displaying or demonstrating this behavior,

Speaker:

this verbal criticism, about the way I'm raising the children,

Speaker:

and now ask the question, at that moment when they verbally criticize me,

Speaker:

and from that moment till now, what are the benefits of their verbal criticism?

Speaker:

At first, you're going to say, no,

Speaker:

there is none because of those memories in your past stored in your subconscious

Speaker:

mind, you're going to protect yourself.

Speaker:

And so you're going to subjectively bias it and not look objectively and see the

Speaker:

upsides to it. And as long as you're seeing the downsides, no upsides,

Speaker:

you don't have a balanced mind.

Speaker:

You're not mindful and you're going to react instead of act.

Speaker:

So then if you go in there and ask, so what are the benefits to that? Oh,

Speaker:

well it's made me stop and look at what I'm doing. Am I over nurturing the kids?

Speaker:

Am I over supporting them? Am I making them dependent?

Speaker:

Am I doing too much for them?

Speaker:

Am I robbing them of accountability and responsibility?

Speaker:

Maybe what that person, my husband is saying has actually got some merit to it.

Speaker:

Am I,

Speaker:

am I justifying my wounds from my past and I'm overcompensating because I didn't

Speaker:

see my mommy there and so I want to make sure I'm there for them and I'm now

Speaker:

smothering the kid and maybe my husband is playing the balancing act,

Speaker:

an androgynous balancing out to make sure I don't.

Speaker:

And I stop and I look at the benefits of what's going on,

Speaker:

the way I'm raising the kids.

Speaker:

Or maybe it's going to make me stop and look at it and he goes, no,

Speaker:

he's just in his mode that day and he's out letting his pressure.

Speaker:

But it allows you to look at it and see the upsides to it.

Speaker:

And once the balance of the upsides balance the downsides,

Speaker:

there's nothing to react to.

Speaker:

And you're immediately back up in your executive center and you're now

Speaker:

functioning. And now you know how to respond to the husband.

Speaker:

Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate it. Made me stop and self reflect.

Speaker:

Made me look at what I was doing and maybe at times I'm over protecting and

Speaker:

nurturing and over supporting them and making them dependent and not,

Speaker:

and I'm robbing them of accountabilities. And other times I realize that no,

Speaker:

you're just reactive and I'm now learning how to discern which one is which,

Speaker:

and make sure that I'm more aware,

Speaker:

so I'm not reacting to you and judging you and I'm not reacting and judging me.

Speaker:

So thank you. When you see the benefits of that,

Speaker:

all of a sudden they're equal to the drawbacks, there is no reaction.

Speaker:

You've got an executive function, you got systems 2 firing away.

Speaker:

And now you're thinking before you react.

Speaker:

And then you could go further and you could go now go to a moment where and when

Speaker:

I perceive myself doing this and how did it benefit the people I did and to the

Speaker:

people who perceived me doing it?

Speaker:

And I clear out all my shame and all my guilt from all the past experiences.

Speaker:

Cause if I've got guilt and shame of the past, that's running my life,

Speaker:

it's going to make me react to people who remind me of it.

Speaker:

And I'm going to be resenting all these people out there that have nothing to do

Speaker:

with them.

Speaker:

It's about me judging myself and they're bringing it into my life to make sure I

Speaker:

don't leave it there hanging there.

Speaker:

Every event in your life is trying to get you to clear the subconscious baggage

Speaker:

and to turn it into superconscious fuel,

Speaker:

and liberate yourself so you can love yourself.

Speaker:

We all want to be loved for who we are,

Speaker:

but we're not going to be loved for who we are as long as we're sitting there in

Speaker:

systems 1, we're going to be reacting,

Speaker:

we're going to be projecting our values onto others and expecting them to live

Speaker:

in our values,

Speaker:

which is futile or living and trying to live in other people's values,

Speaker:

which is futile. But if you go in there and then you ask this next question,

Speaker:

now go to a moment when you perceived this same individual,

Speaker:

doing the exact opposite behavior. When did they actually praise me?

Speaker:

Cause if I think they're always criticizing me,

Speaker:

I'll react and avoid them and I'll now undermine my relationship.

Speaker:

If I see that sometimes they challenge me, sometimes they support me. I go,

Speaker:

you know what, when I do things that challenge their values, they criticize me.

Speaker:

When I do things that support their values, they praise me and I can see that.

Speaker:

And if I balance that I stop the labels.

Speaker:

If I went another step further and asked another question;

Speaker:

at that exact moment when they criticized me,

Speaker:

who had me on a pedestal where it was puffing me up,

Speaker:

that was making me arrogant and communicating in an

Speaker:

make him have to react that way?

Speaker:

We don't attract criticism unless we're puffed up and challenging somebody

Speaker:

and they're bringing us back into authenticity.

Speaker:

And if you stop and look at where was it and who was it that was playing the

Speaker:

other, in your mind it could be virtual or real,

Speaker:

but somebody's praising you in your head and you're puffed up that's why they're

Speaker:

reacting to bring you back down.

Speaker:

You don't attract criticism unless you need to be brought back into

Speaker:

authenticity.

Speaker:

And then you look at that and you realize that every time they're doing it,

Speaker:

they're helping me be authentic.

Speaker:

And now you appreciate them for playing their role in making sure you're

Speaker:

authentic.

Speaker:

And many times you had fantasies about your spouse is supposed to make you happy

Speaker:

all the time. That's delusional.

Speaker:

Your spouse is designed to help you become authentic.

Speaker:

It's to help you to bring balance into your life,

Speaker:

help you to be authentic and be able to love for who you are.

Speaker:

Not for the fantasies you're holding on to.

Speaker:

And many people come into relationships from Disney world and they come in with

Speaker:

fantasies and that person, that spouse is there to help you balance it.

Speaker:

And then you go to the next question, go to the moment where,

Speaker:

and when they actually criticize you,

Speaker:

and if they had praised you in that moment, the way you fantasized,

Speaker:

what would been the drawback? Well you'd have perpetuated your illusion,

Speaker:

been self righteous, not cleared out your own guilt to the past.

Speaker:

You would've sat there and been a persona and a false persona instead of an

Speaker:

authentic being.

Speaker:

And you basically sit there and not realize that he's keeping you under his

Speaker:

control by praising you all the time.

Speaker:

And you're now becoming a juvenile dependent and not

Speaker:

And you want to build a healthy relationship that's

Speaker:

and independence, freedom and constraint, as they say.

Speaker:

So if you ask those questions to an event that you think is terrible,

Speaker:

when you're done, there's nothing there, except thank you I love you.

Speaker:

And you can do that on the opposite side. When somebody's done and praising you,

Speaker:

you can do that in reverse. It doesn't matter.

Speaker:

There's nothing your mortal body can experience that your immortal soul,

Speaker:

the state of unconditional love, can't love, by asking quality questions.

Speaker:

And that's the reason why I teach the Demartini Method.

Speaker:

The Demartini Method is a series of very precise, very scientific,

Speaker:

reproducible questions that guarantee you going from systems 1 to systems 2 and

Speaker:

move you from this emotional reactive state to the executive function,

Speaker:

where you can master your life and pursue what it is that's your purpose and

Speaker:

dream in life and be inspired spontaneously instead of

Speaker:

outside,

Speaker:

an automaton reacting to anything that's doing it and being purchasing and

Speaker:

impulses at the stores and then overspending and then

Speaker:

having bills at the end and emotional drama in your life,

Speaker:

and where your disempowered in all areas of your life.

Speaker:

And then having to be controlled and powered by other people.

Speaker:

The Demartini Method is a science on how to re-empower your life.

Speaker:

And to help you go from system 1 to systems 2 from the subconscious to the

Speaker:

conscious, and to reprogram the subconsciously stored

Speaker:

and get you out of the monosynaptic reflexes where you're reacting before you

Speaker:

even think, and get you into your thinking mode,

Speaker:

and help you realize there's a magnificent order in the universe. By the way,

Speaker:

the word disorder means missing information,

Speaker:

and order means all the information's at at hand.

Speaker:

So when you ask those questions and see both sides and solve the questions and

Speaker:

see the love,

Speaker:

now you're back in order and you're in order and you're commanding the life.

Speaker:

Whoever sees the order is the one that gives the orders and wakes up their

Speaker:

leadership. You have the capacity to be a leader that way.

Speaker:

In the Breakthrough Experience where I teach the Demartini Method and I teach

Speaker:

about values on how to live by priority and how to delegate lower priority

Speaker:

things,

Speaker:

where you decrease the probably of causing these reactions and you live more

Speaker:

masterfully and you use the tool on anything that causes emotional reaction so

Speaker:

you stabilize yourself, you move in the path of mastery.

Speaker:

And it teaches you how and doing the method you can take people off pedestals

Speaker:

and out of pits, because as long as you put people on pedestals,

Speaker:

you're going to inject their values. As long as you put them in pits,

Speaker:

you're going to project your values and you're going to be caught in subjective

Speaker:

biases all day long. There's no reason for that.

Speaker:

You can come to the Breakthrough Experience, learn the Demartini Method,

Speaker:

learn how to prioritize your life and determine your values and live by priority

Speaker:

and expand your game.

Speaker:

And that's why I want people to do the Breakthrough Experience because I know

Speaker:

what I'm describing here is where I teach people how to transform that systems 1

Speaker:

to systems 2, that subconscious to superconscious.

Speaker:

And you don't want to sit there and just do little affirmations and little

Speaker:

visualizations only. You know,

Speaker:

some people have a fantasy that they say something that's positive all the time

Speaker:

they're going to end up being always positive. Well,

Speaker:

I guarantee that's not going to last and it's not as powerful.

Speaker:

But articulating specific balanced terminologies and

Speaker:

balanced visions that do,

Speaker:

which I teach in the Breakthrough Experience on how

Speaker:

But you have to be objective and not set up fantasy yourself.

Speaker:

People set up these fantasy ideas about how to change their subconscious mind

Speaker:

that are transient at best and aren't really real.

Speaker:

I'm interested in helping you master how your brain works,

Speaker:

master how your life works so you can master your mind so you can master your

Speaker:

life. That's what I'm interested in.

Speaker:

That's why I teach people the Demartini Method and the Breakthrough Experience.

Speaker:

That's why I do these little programs every week.

Speaker:

So if you're interested in doing that and would like to take your subconscious

Speaker:

mind and breakthrough to the superconscious state,

Speaker:

or Satori, or enlightenment, or liberation, it's got many names,

Speaker:

or Christ awareness if you're a Christian, or the Buddhist enlightenment,

Speaker:

whatever name you want to give it,

Speaker:

I just call it aware state or full conscious mind.

Speaker:

If you do come to the Breakthrough Experience,

Speaker:

I can help you master your mind and master your life.

Speaker:

I've got all kinds of proven demonstrateable tools

Speaker:

I've taught it for 33 and a half years. I've taught it 1,148 times.

Speaker:

And I know it can make a difference in your life.

Speaker:

I've asked people at the end of the program,

Speaker:

how many have you learned something this weekend that,

Speaker:

because it's a weekend two day program,

Speaker:

how many have you learned something this weekend you could've gone your whole

Speaker:

life and not learned if you hadn't have been here? Every hand goes up,

Speaker:

every hand goes up each weekend.

Speaker:

I promise you something that's not something you just

Speaker:

or even at other seminars. It's something that I'm certain,

Speaker:

it's my 50 years of research summarized and condensed down into something you

Speaker:

can distill down that you can use the rest of your life.

Speaker:

You will use this method,

Speaker:

the Demartini Method from now on and the information there will be priceless and

Speaker:

it'll be lasting. And you don't have to worry about whether it's solid.

Speaker:

It will be demonstrated because you're going to do it and experience it

Speaker:

firsthand. So come and join me at the Breakthrough Experience.

Speaker:

Speaker:

as it's been called through the ages,

Speaker:

and take command of your superconscious state.

Speaker:

There's no reason why you can't live an inspired life.

Speaker:

And that's what this program's about. That's what I'm dedicated to.

Speaker:

And I love helping people do that. So I want to help you do that.

Speaker:

So when you come get ready to work, ,

Speaker:

it's not a rah rah thing standing on your chairs and singing stuff and that's

Speaker:

all that. It's about learning how to master your life.

Speaker:

It's practical and it'll be useful I promise you.

Speaker:
