“You can not teach a man anything. You can only help him find it in himself.” Galileo Galilei
Do you believe what you see or see what you believe? This is worth thinking about.
I propose that accepting the latter part of the previous statement has life changing potential for you. Increasingly psychologists and scientists, in particular quantum physicists, know that the human mind actually works more according to “I’ll see it when I believe it”. This is due to a part of your brain known as the Reticular Activating System (RAS). You may have experienced something similar to deciding you want to buy a particular car, then shortly after, noticing many more of that particular make and even color that you had decided on previously.
The mind seeks evidence to support patterns that have been selected or imprinted, whether consciously or subconsciously. At the moment we choose to believe something, the mind seeks out proof to support the belief. To prevent sensory overload, to a large extent, the RAS filters out what isn’t pattern matching to previous experiences and beliefs. It has been related that Native Americans couldn’t see ships on the water floating towards their land because they had no mental vocabulary for such vessels. Allegedly it was the shaman of the tribes, being trained to look into the unknown, who were first able to decipher these foreign objects.
You have probably already had related experiences yourself through optical illusions, particularly the hidden or dual image type. Someone tells you there are two images hidden in a piece of artwork, but you think “that’s crazy, there’s nothing there but an abstraction”. Chances are, you won’t see the actual images. However if you have had previous positive experience with such illusions or trust the person that’s relaying the information, then chances are greater that you will actually see the images.
In fact, allowing the mind to switch back and forth between seeing one image and then another is a great exercise, since you literally have to believe that a particular image is there, before you allow yourself to see it. THEN you actually do “see it”. If you don’t “believe it”, then you’ll see everything else BUT “it”.
Now you may not really believe this concept yet, in which case the non belief also becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. That means you will perhaps subconsciously choose to not believe you can achieve, create, or possess what you really want, in which case the odds of actually doing so decrease dramatically. I know this through a lifetime of direct experience, in addition through studying numerous ultra achievers through out history, and noticing that virtually all credit their success in large part to the tremendous power of belief.
Please note this is much more than positive thinking, as it encompasses visualization, and actually knowing, which changes mind-body chemistry, and therefore actions leading to real results. Deep down the real you already knows this concept to be valid. However negative experiences and influences we all go through and receive in our “education of how to be an adult”, may have conditioned this childlike sense of knowing out of us. The brain really does see what it knows to be true. So affirm to yourself what you at least once knew to be true really is, and benefit forever from this simple switch of perspective!
