The human mind is one of the most advanced systems in the Universe. Many of us believe that the mind is part of the brain, but the mind is somewhat separate from the brain, because it is a system that is beyond physicality. However, at the energetic level, the mind, brain and body are interconnected.
The mind is part of the intellect, self-awareness and consciousness field of who we are. This system is where thinking truly occurs. If thinking happened only in our brains, we would act like robots because the human brain cannot tell the difference between what it sees and what it remembers. In other words, it works similar to a computer chip. A computer chip has the ability to process information but cannot think. This is similar to how the brain works.
Even though our mind is somewhat separate from our body, the state in which the mind’s energy vibrates will affect our body, because they both are energetically interconnected. Thought is one of the main entities that affects the state of our mind, because it can decrease or increase the vibrational rate of our mind.
Below is an excerpt from my book Staradigm about how to discipline your mind.
To discipline your mind, you need to learn how to control your thoughts and direct them toward positive intentions. A good way to start is by changing your thought patterns to support positive attitudes. A positive attitude affects your thought pattern in a constructive way. Positive thoughts call forth inner peace, while negative thoughts disturb inner peace. The more positive thoughts you have, the more your mind will be at peace, reducing stress and negative emotions. Stress and negative emotions are two of the biggest contributors to disturbing your mind.
In some situations, positive thinking may not permanently solve problems related to stress and emotional problems. In this case, it may be wise to explore your mind more deeply to find the source of the problem. One major misconception we have regarding negative emotions and stress is that we believe the person or thing causing our distress is the source of our problems. In reality, the main reason we are upset is because we do not understand our emotions. In other words, the main source of our emotional problems is internal and not external. Once we understand the root cause of our emotional problems, whenever we experience them again, we will not be upset by them because we will have overcome the underlying cause of our problems.
A great way to find out if you have a disciplined mind or not is to meditate. If you have a hard time calming your mind during meditation, your mind is not disciplined enough. One of the main things that prevent your mind from becoming disciplined is distraction. Since you were a child, your brain and mind have been stimulated with all types of subliminal and non-subliminal messages.
Many of these messages are designed to hypnotize your subconscious and conscious mind by changing their thought patterns. The main mediums used for this are TV, computer, music player, radio, magazine, book and newspaper. Many of the messages embedded into these mediums are designed to distract your mind and reduce the connection between your body, mind and spirit.
Subliminal messages are great at changing your thought patterns to the way advertisers want you to think. Advertising agencies are well aware of how subliminal messages work, which is why they spend millions of dollars on these types of ads. The video clip below does a great job exposing the tricks that advertising agencies use in their subliminal ads.
Subliminal Messages in Advertising
Why are advertising agencies so obsessed with subliminal messages? The main reason is because they want to brainwash you into thinking like how they want you to think. Sex is one of the most popular subliminal messages, which is why it is found in most TV and magazine ads. Do you now realize why people are so addicted to sex? Once you learn how subliminal messages work, you will realize that you have been brainwashed from the beginning. A lot of these subliminal advertisements are designed to target kids, because they are the easiest to brainwash.
To start reversing this process, reduce your time watching certain TV programs that are distracting. Also, music that is distracting should be reduced as much as possible. For magazines and books, read the ones that give you knowledge of self-empowerment. These magazines and books will usually contain information not found in mainstream media as well as contain contradicting information. When you read a book or a magazine that feels contradicting to your beliefs, it is usually a sign that you are reprogramming your mind. The reason for this is because the knowledge in it is helping your subconscious mind unravel the blindfold that has been placed upon you since childhood.
Another technique that does a great job helping you reverse the negative effects of subliminal messages is meditation. The art of meditation is not hard as long as you learn to reduce distractions. If you are having a hard time meditating because of distracting thoughts, concentrate on your breathing, repeat a mantra or listen to meditation music. Once you learn how to use this natural tool to discipline your mind, you will become less stressed, your health and energy will increase, and you will have better control of your thoughts and emotions.
