This ancient proverb is graphically demonstrated with the growing of a Bonsai tree. They are shaped and trained in their early existence into the desired configuration of their owner. From the Bible we hear this fundamental principle stated another way. “Train up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Psychologists have suggested that children can be programmed by the thoughts of their parents alone, aside from their words and actions. If you were an unwanted child, for instance, you could have “known” this at a subconscious level your whole life, having received it as a thought transfer directly from one or both of your parents.
Science of the mind advocates say the subconscious does not argue or debate the information it receives. lt will accept our thoughts and speech commands as a directive and produce the desired results. It will also accept the thoughts and commands of 3rd parties, as in hypnosis.
We can with our conscious mind program ourselves, positively or negatively. The subconscious, our infinite database, accepts the keyboard strokes of our conscious mind without challenge and delivers the programmed result on screen just like a computer.
The ramifications of this phenomenon and its programming possibilities are profound. In the book, “The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy, PhD,DD, the author relates the story of a relative who consulted with a highly regarded Indian Crystal Gazer who stated that the relative had a bad heart and would die of a heart attack at noon the next day. Despite all the reasoning and counseling from his family to ignore the prediction, his great faith in the accuracy of the guru brought about a fatal heart attack at noon the following day.
Is not genetic coding a form of preprogramming? Can that coding be reprogrammed? Can we instruct our subconscious to extend our life dramatically or to never be sick? 80% of all disease is stress related (a state of mind) according to modern medicine. It causes destabilization and an imbalance of energies in the body system, hence its name dis-ease.
From the moment we are born we are programmed to accept disease and death as a fait de accompli. We just accept it as a certainty. What if we were taught instead to believe that we would never be sick, live to be 500 years old, or better yet, never die. Would our subconscious mind produce these things as a reality?
