I have been a trained clinical hypnotist for over twenty years. Because of this training directed to help people change old patterns in their lives, I see the thought process as having three distinct parts:
- The voice of the body, expressing as physical desires: pleasure, sensuality, lust, food cravings, fear, physical cravings, anxiety, thirst, fun, and some addictive behaviors;
- The voice of the deductive and inductive brain, expressing as the problem solver. Anything you do in life that requires your thinking brain uses the deductive 0r inductive brain; and
- The voice of the creative mind. This place in the Infinite Mind of God is available to all. This is where you meditate, create art, imagine, dream, and, most importantly, connect with Source. The Mind—NOT THE HUMAN BRAIN—is the creative substance from which we affect change in all areas of our lives.
Gaining a New Perspective
When you self-reflect, you must observe yourself as if you are another person looking at your own behavior and thoughts. The simplest way to do this successfully is through meditation.
When I mention meditation, most people immediately say to me, “I cannot do that. I’ve tried. My thoughts will not shut off.”
Fortunately, the definition of meditation is not STOPPING YOUR THOUGHTS, at all.
The definition for meditation, even to the adept master yogi is to rise above one’s own thoughts. This self-reflective part of your brain, in turn, becomes your Observer Mind.
