Perceptionism Not Hypnotism
If what I said in my earlier blog is true, “Your brain will automatically cause you to follow and carry-out any instructions it receives from your mind”, then the question is: How do you get your mind to tell your brain what to do?
The messages your mind sends to your brain are not the things you say to yourself; what other people say to you or even what you are thinking. If what you said to yourself, what other people said to you, or your thoughts were the messages to your brain, you would have already changed your unwanted behavior—right?
Your brain is impersonal—it doesn’t care what you want, what you know or what you are trying to do. Your brain understands only your self-perceptions: how you perceive yourself and how you perceive yourself responding to people and events in your life. About 95% of your perceptions are based on reality, it’s that other 5% that gets in your way, i.e. perceiving that you can’t do something that you know you have the ability to do, or that you shouldn’t do something that you know you should do. Two examples: “I can’t stop smoking” when you truly know you have the ability or “I shouldn’t speak-out and voice my opinion” when you really know you should.
The process that goes on between your mind and brain should be called “Perceptionism” not Hypnotism.
By getting your self-perceptions changed you get out of your own way and find yourself doing things that you thought you couldn’t do or shouldn’t do… that is what perceptionism does best!
