When you are a child, it is from all the people around you, and your environment that you start to develop habits which later on develop into a paradigm. When you shift your way of thinking by altering your habits and therefore affecting your subconscious mind, you start to experience drastic changes in your life.
Bob Proctor illustrates this beautifully. The main point however, is that once you reach a certain age, you start to become more conscious of everything that surrounds you, the way you act and perceive the world around you is dictated mostly by your subconscious mind.
The various experiences, habits, and beliefs that you develop throughout your life, starts to show itself reflected in the life you live on a daily basis.
This is one of the big reasons why an intelligent and bright person remains broke is miserable in his or her life and a less educated individual can create financial success and live a happier life overall.
As you get a basic understanding of how habits, beliefs, and experiences all mesh together to form a paradigm in your mind, you become better equipped to shift it into a more positive paradigm that has the power to create a more fulfilling life.
Hello there and welcome. It’s Bob Proctor here. I’m gonna take you back in time and space by using this flip chart here. I know we’ve got all kinds of technical razzle-dazzle today. But I wanna communicate this idea to you. First, let me ask you a couple questions. Have you ever wondered why you look like your relatives? Have you ever wondered why you have many of the habits or idiosyncracies that mom and dad or grandma has? These are good questions. Have you ever wondered why you keep getting the same results over and over and over again?
Have you ever asked yourself why individuals who have phenomenal education, they have degrees coming off the end of the business card, are not doing very well while others, who maybe never saw the inside of a school, earning millions of dollars and building giant organizations and doing all kinds of good all over the world. Have you ever asked yourself these questions? I did. In fact, I have spent the past 55 years asking nothing but those questions.
And you know something, seek and go find is good advice. If you’re looking for it, you can find it. I’m gonna explain why all these things happen. I’m gonna explain paradigms in such a way that a child could understand it but I’m not gonna insult your intelligence. Now let’s think for a moment. Our mind controls everything.
Dr. J. B. Rhine said the mind is the greatest power in all of creation. Now I have had people say to me, wait a minute, God is the greatest power. Wait a minute, God is the greatest power, the mind is the greatest power in all of creation. God being the creator, mind is the creation.
Now, let this here represent your subconscious mind. And this represent your body. Do you know your subconscious mind is programmed with something called a paradigm. Do you know what a paradigm is? A paradigm is a multitude of habits.
Now a habit is nothing but an idea that is fixed here in the subconscious mind that you act on without any conscious thought. And it’s our actions that produce our results. If we wanna get really technical, it’s the action causes a reaction, and the action/reaction alters the condition, circumstances, environment in our life. Now we are programmed genetically, that’s why we look like our relatives.
But then after birth, we’re programmed with our outside world. If you were born, let’s say, in New Jersey to an English speaking, Roman Catholic family but you were taken to China and placed in the suburbs in a home that maybe knows nothing about English, they might be Buddhists, they might not have any religion. Do you know that you would grow up fluent in Chinese and have absolutely no knowledge of the English language.
Do you see, whatever goes in from the outside world when we’re children becomes programming. We’re programmed genetically and then we’re programmed environmentally. Well, at a certain age, a psychic barrier comes up here. And we develop something that’s called a conscious mind. And the conscious mind has hooked up to it sensory factors. You can see, hear, smell, taste, touch. And here we have higher faculties. We have something called intellectual factors. We have perception, intuition, the will, reason, imagination, all these marvelous tools here. Now there’s a power that flows into our conscious mind and we have the ability to think anything we wanna think. Do you know what we’re gonna think? We’re gonna think thoughts that are in harmony with the paradigm.
Because play with this.
The paradigm controls the vibration that your body is in. And make no mistake about it, your body is in a vibration. Vibration is the law of the universe. The law of vibration decries every moves, nothing rests. This physical instrument we’re living in is in a very high speed of vibration. If you looked at it through a microscope, you’d see it dancing right before your eyes. In fact, if you put your body in a completely dark room in front of an infrared television camera, you’d see yourself as a glistening, radiating, gleaming form.
Semyon Kirlian in a way back 1934, the Russian photographer, he perfected a form of photography where you can photograph mass, the body, and you will see the ray of energy coming from the body. See, there’s a power that flows into you, and it flows to and through you. And when it comes in, it has no form. Now you can build negative ideas or you can build positive ideas. We build ideas that are in harmony with the paradigm.
Do you know why? If the paradigm is built with ‘x’ type energy, you’re gonna think ‘x’ type thoughts. If you have been raised with the paradigm where lack and limitation is common, it’s just the way it is, you’ll never become wealthy. If that is the thinking, oh, I know, intellectually we know we can become wealthy, but the paradigm says no. You will probably take this power that flows into your conscious mind that you could make anything out of it you want, and you’ll make ideas that are in harmony with the paradigm.
Because it’s the idea that you impress upon the subconscious that controls the vibration. And if you start to impress ‘y’ ideas, you’re gonna move into a very uncomfortable vibration. What would be a ‘y’ idea? A ‘y’ idea would be quit your job, sell your house, take the money and invest it in a business so you can be your own boss. That’s a ‘y’ idea. That’ll scare the daylights out of most people. Why? Because it’s not in harmony with the paradigm.
Now your paradigm is controlling your results. You can have people that have all kinds of degrees here. Intellectually, they’re brilliant, but the results don’t match. You’ll find other people, no formal education, no business experience, the results, they’re earning millions of dollars. Why? It’s the paradigm.
