With the basic framework of the Matrix Assessment Profile (The M.A.P.) as the foundation for a unique and comprehensive analysis of whole person evaluation and the source for exploring a new way of thinking, aside from the established concepts that provide the fabric for identifying cause and effect regarding the multitude of symptoms currently plaguing mankind, we inevitably arrive at one of several related questions -that being – if anything can cause anything, how do you know what’s causing what? For more information and details regarding this process – please visit http://mymatrixmap.com/).
At each stage in this process, more elements of truth become an inherent part of efforts, to answer this and other related questions, such as how and why, as well as affirming that life, as we know it is an “INSIDE JOB”.
Historically, this lead me the basic model of three primary influences, those being the structure, the biochemistry and the psycho-emotional and spiritual aspects of the human experience.
Subsequently integrating a history of each individual which included many, if not most elements inherent in lifestyle choices, such as exercise, diet, beliefs, self-appraisal and recurrent thoughts. Along the way I developed some additional guidelines, I called caveats, to assist in a refined understanding of the three primary realms noted above.
These inevitably led me to an awareness and understanding of the primal impact of core biological needs, which met or unmet and to what degree, actually contribute to our future explorations of character and personality, each ultimately dictating the manner in which we eventually interact with the world around us and the people in it!
Theories about the unconscious vary widely within psychological circles, from the Freudian view that it’s a storehouse of socially unacceptable desires, traumatic memories, and painful emotions to cognitive psychology’s perspective that the unconscious mind is simply a bundle of cognitive processes that we’re not aware of, not an entity in itself.
The truth is that it’s hard to prove any of these theories. Just as we know that the universe is vast, we know the unconscious mind is powerful. And like our research into space, our knowledge of the unconscious mind is limited by the scientific equipment we have available to observe it. So we end up subscribing to theories we find most useful.
To laypeople in Western cultures, the unconscious mind has been viewed as an enemy, a murky power that swooped in to sabotage our conscious desires. It became the scapegoat for every failure, mistake or unwanted reaction. More recently, people have come to think of the unconscious mind as a tool they can consciously use to get where they want to go. They bludgeon the mind with affirmations then wonder why they aren’t working.
You don’t need a PhD in psychology to work effectively with your unconscious, but you do need to understand a few basics. Here are a few of the aspects of the unconscious that are relevant to the functioning of the subconscious mind and how they apply to you.
The unconscious mind:
Preserves the body: One of its main objectives is the survival of your physical body. It will fight anything that appears to be a threat to that survival. So if you want to change a behavior more easily, you must demonstrate to your unconscious how that behavior is hurting your body.
Governs the day to day operations of the body: The unconscious handles all of your basic physical functions (breathing, heart rate, immune system, etc.). The unconscious holds the blueprint of your body as it is now and also the blueprint of your perfect health. Rather than telling the unconscious what you imagine perfect to be, you can actually simply ask your subconscious what it knows and what you need for better health.
Your subconscious takes your verbal and non verbal instructions very literally. For instance, if you communicate that your job is a pain in the neck, your unconscious will figure formulate a response in a form that actually provides that your neck hurts at work! The unconscious is also very “moral” which means based on the instructions or beliefs taught and accepted by your parents or surroundings your unconscious will still respond to that teaching even after your conscious mind has rejected it.
Communicates through emotion and symbols: The unconscious also uses emotions to communicate, making your day to day experiences equate to the perceived feelings, emotions and beliefs you hold at any given moment, so if you suddenly feel afraid, your unconscious will construct a corresponding reaction, (rightly or wrongly) that your survival is at risk.
Stores and organizes memories: The unconscious makes decisions as to where and how your memories are stored. It may hide certain memories (such as traumas) that have strong negative emotions until you are mature enough to process them consciously or unless a related and/or similar trauma provokes it to emerge from storage into an actual physical event. When it perceives that you are ready (whether you consciously think you are or not!), it will bring dredge them up so you can process them.
Does not process negatives: The unconscious absorbs pictures rather than words. Switching pictures from the negative to the positive takes an extra step but ultimately translates into a more productive outcome.
Makes associations and learns quickly: Simply in order to protect you, the unconscious stays alert and tries to extract lessons from each experience, leading to more beneficial future outcomes.
By example, if you had a bad experience in school, your unconscious may choose to lump all of your related learning inherent in this past bad experience into the “this is not going to be fun” category. The corresponding signals can include visceral experiences, such as sweaty palms and anxiety, particularly whenever you attempt something new. But if you do well in any of many past endeavors your unconscious will remember that these activities were pleasing and productive and you’ll feel positive and energized whenever that, or a similar physical activity shows up again.
There’s much more to the unconscious mind. In fact, my next couple of videos we”ll delve a bit deeper into the unconscious, how it works, and how to work with it. But even just understanding the basics above will help you harness its power as we investigate some established and related facts to assist in a functional, practical and somewhat academic comprehension from the science of the unseen realms.
FROM THE REALM OF PHYSICS AND QUANTUUM PHYSICS WE WILL CONSIDER THE PRAGMATIC SIGNIFICANCE OF SOME OF THE FOLLOWING:
1) For every action, is there truly an equal and opposite reaction or simply a a relatively undefinable reaction to the action?
2) What is the role of probability amplitudes in terms of the possibilities inherent in pre-conception outcomes, as well as present time activity in terms of coordinating the function and relationship between the conscious and subconscious mind?
3) Our subconscious mind uses the behavior patterns we have learned to
automatically respond and react to everyday events in our life. So, how can we harness this powerful potential to intentionally produces predictable causes and effects in our day to day lives?
4) We are the biological end-products of our interpretations of out perceptions.
5) What we focus on expands.
6) The impression, becomes the expression.
7) What you resist – persists!
8) The law of conservation – matter is neither created or destroyed but merely changes form.
9) Thoughts are things.
These, just to touch on a few of the, yet to be integrated perceived facts, are the next frontier of my ongoing research into the evolution of the Matrix Assessment Profile.
