Sharing the distinctions of the 3 selves is paramount to easier manifesting and transformation. Or at least for me. It has been key to me shifting so much trauma and intergenerational trauma.
Yesterday when I was on FB I saw this quote which is exemplary of the current approach that is broadly taught.
For me it is a trap.
"you have to train your mind to be stronger than your emotions or else you'll lose yourself every time". A great example of the innate fear of the Mind about feeling our feelings.
As I contemplate so many approaches and systems, 99% of them talk about the power of the Mind. I know there are different definitions and for me I keep it simple, mind is consciousness.
Until I was introduced to "User Illusion Cutting Consciousness Down to Size" by Thor Norreanders, I could not find an answer as to why certain outcomes were not happening other than I had to do a better job.
This book is revolutionary for me. It is technical and extraordinary. It is an opportunity to understand how we are just slightly off target in our approach to problem solving and accessing our vast creativity. Really, we are off target 1/2 second, that is all.
Throughout the book, backed by a lot of science and data, he unravels the evolution of consciousness. In a highly simplified interpretation, Consciousness is a bit of a tin god. We have placed our innate fear of our feelings in the hands of a tin god. Consciousness is only capable of processing 16 bits of information per second. The subconscious or inner child processes 11,000,000 bits of information per second. The mind is terrified of the messy powerful nature of our feelings. Unbridled it will engage in the iron grip of dominating our feelings at all cost.
So many approaches are reactive to feeling, especially the messy ones. Its weaknesses are; heady, disconnects from subconscious and High Self, numb, mind driven, locks up the whole works, terrified of surrendering to feelings and the raw power of subconscious, desires to compartmentalize and figure everything out, wants to control.
The Gifts of the Mind
Now, the mind definitely serves important purpose. It is our Inner Coach or guide, initiates forgiveness, in charge of correcting errors, sin or harm to others, guides and helps reeducate Inner Child,forms the completed picture of prayer or healed state and then sends to Subconscious to gather mana/energy and send to High Self.
Understanding the roles of the 3 selves has allowed me to participate in the marrying of the 3 selves in a more awakened state and greater choice.
