Welcome to the January 2014 edition of SRT News
Reading some quotes about new beginnings recently it occurred to me that we are often stuck where we are because we are just too scared to move forward. We are unwilling to change the way we do things because the consequences are unknown and unpredictable. We believe that to behave in a different way is frightening in itself, so we can't possibly go there.
Our conscious mind/ego self tries to control us because it operates from fear and it keeps us disempowered whilst it’s busy fighting for our survival. Fear can be a construct of our ego self, or deeply programmed in our subconscious. To shift it we must first acknowledge that on some level we have created the very things that are holding us back. Usually we try and shift responsibility away from ourselves by blaming others for our insecurities and failings - “he/she made me do it”, “I was powerless to do anything different” or “I am a victim of circumstances”. Sound familiar?
We have all heard the saying “feel the fear and do it anyway” which is great if you are feeling motivated and brave - but what if you aren’t and you are too worried to ask for help? What if you feel weak, worn out, alone, unsupported, frightened – what then? What can you do to help yourself?
Affirmations and thinking positive is fine but you will see from this extract from Bruce Lipton, author of Biology of Belief, that you need something more:
“ ... positive thoughts come from the conscious mind, while contradictory negative thoughts are usually programmed in the more powerful subconscious mind.
“The major problem is that people are aware of their conscious beliefs and behaviours, but not of subconscious beliefs and behaviours. Most people don’t even acknowledge that their subconscious mind is at play, when the fact is that the subconscious mind is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind and that we operate 95 to 99 per cent of our lives from subconscious programs.
“Your subconscious beliefs are working either for you or against you, but the truth is that you are not controlling your life, because your subconscious mind supersedes all conscious control. So when you are trying to heal from a conscious level – citing affirmations and telling yourself you’re healthy – there may be an invisible subconscious program that’s sabotaging you.”
That something more is SRT - working as it does to clear out the very subconscious programming that is holding you back.
If you are an SRT practitioner, you have all the tools at your disposal. You can be a spiritual detective and uncover the levels of consciousness at which your programming is held, research the negative energies attached and then ask for clearing from all bodies and minds. Very often fear is held at the level of SPIRIT and comes in when we begin our journey from the spiritual realms towards incarnation. Abandonment, rejection, separation too often have their inception here.
If you have never worked with SRT, I suggest you start by contacting someone in your area who has been trained to uncover and clear your negative subconscious programming using Spiritual Response Therapy and/or Spiritual Restructuring. It is a gentle process and you will be treated with respect and compassion. If you want to go deeper, perhaps you would like to learn how to work with the system so that you can help yourself, your family and friends too.
SRT is about empowerment. It is not a discipline that creates dependency, so it will take only a few sessions – and possibly only one – to shift your perspective and maybe change your life for ever!
