We are Our Programming
The programs you downloaded as a child from the ages of conception to about seven years old, continue to run your life into adulthood unless you work on yourself to understand why you do what you do, understanding what programs you run on and why.
95% of our daily life is controlled by the subconscious mind.
This means we are not aware of 95% of the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors we have on a daily basis.
Think back to when you were a child around the ages of 5, 6, and 7.
Do you remember much around that age?
What is one memory you can call forward?
How well do you remember it?
Now think of a belief system that you have today about something…
Have you ever wondered why you have this belief, or where it came from?
Do you believe it because it was something a parent or a grandparent believed or told you was true?
Have you ever researched it for yourself or asked yourself: “is something that is true for who I am today as an adult?”
Unless you have been on a path of growth, personal development, and inner work for sometime, you may not realize why you do what you do. Why do you think the way you think? Why are your emotions what they are? Or why do you respond or react to certain triggers?
When we are children, we arrive as a blank slate; it’s like ordering a computer with nothing loaded into it.
As we learn from our environment – the house where we are raised, the adults around us, school, TV programs/shows, organizations we are a part of – our subconscious mind gathers that information, learns from it and creates habits and belief systems from the external environment.
We run on those programs our entire life, unless we find a path that teaches us to take a look at the processes and systems that are deeply rooted internally.
The good news: you don’t have to be a victim of the programming you received during the early stages of your life – especially if a lot of it was limiting or negative.
You can make the choice to “update the software” and change the programming.
It truly is a choice and once you begin the journey of looking within for the reasons why things happen to you or for you, life can become very interesting, fun, and full of growth.
