What is Mind Programming?

111 - What does the term "Mind Programming" mean?

Mind Programming incorporates a number of techniques, schools of thought, disciplines, theories, and practices. Its basic goal is to change one's reaction to internal and external stimuli or to help the mind create a physical or emotional effect on its own (e.g.: happiness, confidence). It harnesses the brain's built-in programming mechanisms to help increase intelligence, end bad habits, stop negative mental patterns and much more. It allows you to focus all subconscious resources on tasks you wish to accomplish. In other words, Mind Programming can help achieve whatever you desire.

The truth is everyone's mind is programmed, and at one point or another, everyone has reprogrammed their mind in some way. Do you start to feel better almost instantaneously when taking medicine, despite being aware of the time it takes for the medicine to take effect? Can you make yourself hungry by thinking of food? Have you ever experienced the Placebo effect? Did you know that if you smile for approximately sixty seconds you will become happier? All of these things are a direct result of the mind being conditioned, or programmed. The mind programming covered in this application however, is much more broad and powerful than these examples.

Intentional Mind Programming has existed for thousands of years. Yogis and Buddhists have been using deep meditation for mind programming, among many other things. Hypnotists have been programming the minds of people for over a century. Psychotherapists have been helping people install new and healthier programs. In fact, until just recently, programming the mind in this deeper sense has been an expensive, lengthy process. It has required extreme practice, patience, and dedication. And while it still requires (and will always require) these three things, mind programming has advanced far past older methods. It is now faster, inexpensive and easier to learn; actually this application does most of the work for you!

Thanks to recent advances, people are able to use carefully prepared audio and visual stimulation to induce an extensive variety of mental states. Many of these leave the mind more receptive to reprogramming.

Your subconscious is constantly working, constantly responding to situations, and constantly acting on your fears and desires (although not always in the way you would like). After reprogramming your mind, your subconscious will work for you and you alone. If you want something of yourself, let your subconscious be your ally, program it in!

112 Mental Programs


What is a Mental Program?

A Mental Program is a set of instructions, embedded deep in the brain. It executes upon an internal or external stimulus, causing the mind and body to follow the set of instructions until the program stops. They can also be constantly running, with no end in sight.

Mental Programs are largely sub-conscious and completely out of our control. There are many reasons for this. One reason is that they are often state-bound, meaning they could only be remembered in the same (or similar) state to the one in which the program was first coded into memory.

Another reason would be that many Mental Programs are coded during a traumatic event, where most brain activity is switched to the right side of the brain, which is emotion-based and largely non-verbal.


How are Mental Programs formed?

Most Mental Programs are formed when we are very young, and are influenced primarily by the actions and words of parents during the first 7 - 8 years of our lives, when our brains are functioning mostly in Delta and Theta (see Brainwaves). In these years, our minds are hyper-suggestible and will accept comments from an authoritative figure as fact. Furthermore, the mind is very open to programming when in an emotional or traumatic state.

For example, to a child, trauma often exists in the form of sharp parental disapproval. Many parents will become frustrated with children when they are having trouble reading, possibly slapping the child and saying, "You'll never learn!" The child's mind, being in such an open, receptive state, would associate the activity (reading) with the negative experience (being slapped). Moreover, the parent saying "You'll never learn" would affect the child (if old enough to understand the sentence), perhaps leading to learning problems and self-sabotaging behavior later in life. These are simple, and all too frequent, examples of mental programming in action.


How can Mental Programs be intentionally programmed, or coded into memory?

Psychologist Ernest Lawrence Rossi wrote in his book The Psychobiology of Mind-Body Healing, the Limbic System works to convert words, feelings and visualizations into a language that the body can understand. Using the techniques described in these documents, people can reprogram their minds, erasing old, unwanted programs, and bringing new, healthier programs into memory. What's more, by stimulating brainwaves we can create specific mental states which greatly amplify the effect of these techniques.

1.1.3 The Human Bio-Computer


The Human Identity

What are you? Are you your brain? Are you your body? Are you a combination of the two? When most people use the word "I" they tend to mean it in reference a whole person, made up of many different pieces. "I" usually refers to the personality, the body and the brain. That is deceiving, though, because one could still be called "I" even after losing most of the above. And if we are made up of only our personality, body and brain, why is it we can observe our own emotions, our own thoughts? What is doing the observing? Seasoned meditators have learned to clear their mind and watch as their thoughts flow by, as a psychotherapist would observe a patient. What is watching your thoughts? If common knowledge is true (that "I" is made up of our thoughts and feelings), observing our thoughts without intervention should not be possible, because we should be our thoughts. But that is not true. In order for a thought to be observed there must be something doing the observing.
There is a part of the brain that is inherently different than any other part. Its purpose is to observe your brain and interact with your will. It is the consciousness. It is self-awareness. John C. Lilly, M.D., calls it the Self-Metaprogram, or a mental structure that observes, controls, organizes and governs other mental structures. It might not even be a specific part of the brain, it might be made up of hundreds of little pieces from all other parts of the brain, but this observing, conscious mechanism exists in all humans. It is more base than intelligence, thought or emotion. It is the only part of you that hasn't changed since you were born. If you were to take away everything but it, you would be left without any motion, emotions, sensations or thoughts. You would desire nothing. You would not even fear death.
Try this little experiment. Think of something that makes you embarrassed or angry. Observe as your stomach tenses up and your mood changes from calm to angry. The part of you that is observing this brain-body reaction has no bias, no filters, and no anger. Anger and embarrassment are simple mechanisms of the brain. They can be turned on and off at will, like light switches. You just turned one of them on. After a little knowledge and practice, it becomes just as easy to turn them off.
So, in effect, your brain is a computer. The brain consists of all of your emotions, all your pain, all your thoughts, memories, beliefs, judgments and personality quirks. You, the user and the observer of this computer, can control all of it via Mind Programming.
Mind Over Body
In recent years it has become apparent that the brain is the single most powerful acting force upon the body. The body and mind are inseparable. The most obvious example of this principle can be found in what the scientific community calls the "placebo effect", which is a broad term used to describe a huge range of unexplained phenomena such as so-called miracle cures. In essence, the placebo effect is a response to a stimulus one believes will work. Simply believing something will work is often enough to make it work. In fact, Psychologist Ernest Lawrence Rossi wrote in his book, The Psychobiology of Mind-Body Healing, that the placebo effect accounts for nearly 56% of the effectiveness of analgesics, like Morphine. This means that when you take a pain killer, more than half of the effect is the direct result of your belief in the pill. And the effect is not in any way limited to pain killers. The placebo response shows up in nearly every therapeutic agent!
Rossi also wrote that the Limbic System works to convert words, feelings and visualizations into a language that the body can understand, the language of neuro-chemical messenger molecules called neuropeptides, which flow through the entire body. He concludes that Mental Programs become hard-wired into not only our brain, but into individual cells as well.
There are more studies that directly link the mind and body. Dr. Candace Pert wrote of these links in her book Molecules Of Emotion. Her pioneering work into the brain-body connection has led to the discovery of a complex network of chemicals, stimulated by the brain, directly affecting the health of the body on the cellular level. She discovered a number of cellular receptors and preferential chemical bindings that act as information pathways from the brain to all cells in the body.
It has been shown that all events, from sex with a preferred partner to a traumatic event, affect the body directly, positively or negatively. It has been also shown that generally happy people are three times less likely to get the common cold (and other ailments) than unhappy people (Journal Of Psychosomatic Medicine, July 11, 2002). This could be linked to the infamous stress hormone, Cortisol, which has numerous adverse effects on the human body (cancer, heart disease, etc).
Studies done by the famous Cleve Backster indicate an even more direct connection from the brain to individual cells. He allegedly separated cells from the body and measured cellular reactions to emotional changes in the mind of the patient. This particular study is intriguing but should probably be regarded with skepticism until follow up studies are done. Still, it is very clear that as goes the mind, so goes the body.
Therefore, two assumptions can be made.

1) The mind is able to change the body if properly programmed to do so.

2) In order for the body to be kept in peak physical condition, the mind must also be kept in a peak mental condition.

Hyper-Suggestibility

Hyper-Suggestibility is a term used to describe a drowsy, child-like state where information is rapidly absorbed into the subconscious; bypassing the usual mental filters that information is put through. In this state of extreme receptivity, images and verbal suggestions are more likely to be accepted and acted upon. [see Tom Budzynski, Ph.D., under Further Reading]

It is common knowledge that children learn faster than adults. Researchers believe that one of the reasons for this is that young children spend most of their time with the dominant brainwave being Theta or Delta. But children don't just learn words and arithmetic; they learn how to survive, indeed, how to think. They are, in effect, building up a subconscious that will support them later in life. For example, in the first years of childhood subconscious mechanisms need to be built to handle limb and body movement. Later comes recognition, then speech, and so on.

To fully explain it, let's jump ahead a couple years to something you may be more familiar with: learning how to drive. When first learning you may have been nervous, having to be constantly watch the road. Conversations were very distracting, because all of your concentration had to be focused on driving. But it isn't that way any more is it? Now you can drive to work and back and not even remember half of it. This is because driving has become a subconscious mechanism, not a conscious one.

In this same way, your subconscious has developed an action to suit nearly every situation. If you don't like public speaking, it is because your subconscious has built up a nervous reaction to it. If you love eating pineapple, it is because your subconscious has a good reaction to it. Most of the time you will have no idea where these mental programs come from, because they were coded into memory while you were a child, at a time when your subconscious was growing faster than your long-term memory.

In the Theta, or hyper-suggestibility, state, learning things and committing them to the subconscious is much faster. But since you are an adult you only enter the Theta state when sleeping or while using mental tools like the Neuro-Programmer, so the only way to use the hyper-suggestibility of Theta is with recorded suggestions [see Michael Hutchison, MegaBrain, 1994].

A study was done by Felipe at Yale University where attitude changing suggestions were given to subjects during various mental states. Only during drowsiness or sleep did the suggestions have any significant effect. During alert, waking states and deeper sleep stages, the suggestions had little to no effect on attitude and behavior.

1.1.5. Forza di Volontà, l'Immaginazione e la Credenza


Immaginazione e Forza di di volontà

Forza di volontà vuol dire fallire.

Ha tentato mai di rilassarti quando eri nervoso? Più provi e più non ti riesce. Qualche persona fortunata, ha imparato a fare, in tali situazioni, dei respiri lenti e profondi e visualizzare qualche cosa di rilassante o divertente, come un pubblico nudo, o altro. Ciononostante, la maggior parte delle persone passano l’intera loro vita senza aver imparato ad rilassarsi su proprio comando.

La cognizione di “forza di volontà” è un meccanismo che è stato inventato per dare al tuo cervello un modo facile di disubbidire ai Tuoi ordini. La maggior parte del tempo, disobbedisce per tuo proprio bene, o il bene della specie umana. Per esempio, se un uomo, durante un incontro sessuale, comincia ad impiegare la “forza di volontà” per ritardare l’orgasmo, probabilmente lo farà arrivare due volte più velocemente. Invece, un comune metodo molto usato, per rimandare l’orgasmo è quello di pensare a baseball o a qualsiasi altro ogetto non-sessuale.

La mente risponde a quello che Tu credi, non a quello che Tu vuoi.

Se Tu credi qualche cosa, la Tua mente farà tutto il necessario pur di rendere quella credenza vera (reale), compreso il cambiare Te stesso e la Tua percezione, o cambiando anche il mondo ca Te circostante, se possibile

.

Credenza e Immaginazione - "Io lo crederò quando lo vedo!"

Che cosa è più convincente le fare Esperienza di qualche cosa? Neanche la testimonianza di una persona degna di fede può far cambiare opinione a qualcuno che ha “Vissuto” una esperienza personalmente.

La Sua mente subconscia funziona proprio così. Se fai esperienza di qualche cosa, la tua mente subconscia, abbassa la sua “guardia” ed accetta la nuova esperienza come “verità”.

Credenza e l'Immaginazione funzionano entrambi sullo stesso meccanismo mentale. Infatti, si potrebbe dire che credenza e l'immaginazione sono lo stesso meccanismo, perché hanno lo stesso effetto.

Molti studi sono stati fatti per studiare l’Immaginazione e la Credenza.

Un giocatore di pallacanestro che crede che farà canestro e è molto più probabile che lo faccia rispetto ad un altro giocatore che non crede di farlo.

Comunque, se il giocatore che normalmente non crede di fare canestro, si concentra e immagina di farlo, avrà le stesse maggiori possibilità dell’altro che ci crede.

Prova un piccolo esperimento. Prova a “sparare” un elastichetto veso un bersaglio qualsiasi sul muro 10 volte. Ora siediti di nuovo e prenditi 5 minuti per immaginare l’elastichetto che colpisce il bersaglio sul muro esattamente ogni volta che tiri. Immagina che ogni volta che tiri l’elastichetto, colpisci sempre il bersaglio, non sbagliando mai, ogni tiro un centro. Nella Tua mente, immagina di tirare 10 volte e di fare centro tutte e 10 le volte. Dopo 5 minuti di visualizzazione, tiria alla stessa macchia un'altre 10 volte. La gran maggioranza di persone troverà i propri tirinotevolmente più precisi di prima. Se sei già un buon tiratore di elastichetti, prova con qualcos’altro, come tirare in alto una moneta e prendendola al volo con gli occhi chiusi.


La Mente non può dire la differenza

La mente subconscia non può fare la differenza tra ciò che è 'immaginato e ciò che è. “reale”. Non ci credi? Se immagini del cibo, ti verrà appetito e comincerai a salivare.

Se immagini una persona sessualmente attraente, incomincerai ad eccitarti. Tu, chiaramente sai che è solo immaginazione/visualizzazione, ma la Tua mente subconscia non sa distinguere, e la sua reazione mentale è la stessa.

Gli scienziati, usando speciali strumenti molto sensibili, riescono ad individuare quali zone del Cervello si attivano durante una esperienza “reale”, e straordinariamente coincidono con le stesse zone che si attivano se l’esperienza è solo immaginata.

La risposta elettrica neurale di una esperienza immaginata è quasi simile a quella di una esperienza “reale”! Così identica, che la mente subconscia ha difficoltà a distinguerne la differenza.

La “tecnica” dell'immaginazione è qualche cosa che può essere sfruttata nella Programmazione Mentale. Se Ti immagini forte sano e snello, la tua mente subconscia, pensando che lo sei, (e la tua “realtà”), agirà per rendere reale quella visualizzazione..

Gli effetti straordinari dell’immaginazione / visualizzazione aumentano notevolmente con il migliorare della chiarezza dell’esperienza nella tua testa.

Visualizzare mentre sei in uno stato Alpha profondo, vicino al Theta, è molto potente, perché Sei vicino uno stato di sogno che è lo stato di visualizzazione più “vivida” che si può.

116 Sensory Modalities


What is a Sensory Modality?

Sensory Modality is a phrase coined by the inventors of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), Richard Sandler and John Grinder. It refers to the way you remember information or imagine a situation. Researchers have discovered that people tend to use senses to interpret reality.

As humans explore their world they use senses to internalize their experiences. The same is true of memories and feelings. When thought occurs in your brain, you use senses to understand the thought and find the meaning behind it.

There are three main senses that are used to organize thought: Sight (visual), Hearing (auditory) and Feeling (kinesthetic).

What is a Primary Sensory Modality?

Primary Sensory Modality is the dominant sense; the one you use the most to mentally describe situations and even emotions. When you think of a memory, what occurs in your brain? Do you see the situation without sound or feeling? Do you hear sounds and people talking? Do you get a strong emotional feeling or do you feel your body interacting with the environment? Would you generally say you are more aware of sounds, visuals or feelings? Asking such questions can reveal what your Primary Sensory Modality is, or you can use the NLP test off of the Tools menu.

What is a Secondary Sensory Modality?

Secondary, or non-dominant, sensory modalities are the two main senses you use other than your primary sense. Chances are, you use these senses quite a bit as well. Everyone has dreams and memories that make use of senses we normally don't use. In many ways, it makes these experiences special and makes them easier to remember. If your primary sense is sight, you probably remember a dream where you ended up with a strong emotion; fear, love, embarrassment. When you remember that dream, you probably feel the emotions all over again. In another dream maybe you heard voices or heard yelling in your ears. That is also engaging a sensory modality which may not be your primary.

Examples Of Sensory Modalities

Cognitive Function Modalities -

Figuring out a math problem :
(Visual) You see the numbers in your head.
(Auditory) You hear the numbers being spoken.
(Kinesthetic) You figure the number out using your hands or writing in the

Remembering something :
(Visual) You see yourself in the memory, third person or first person.
(Auditory) You hear the sounds in the memory; people talking, dogs bark etc.

(Kinesthetic) You feel the emotions and tactic objects of the memory. Ye temperature that day, or that the wind was blowing.

Feeling an emotion :
(Visual) You see the situation as it keeps replaying itself in your mind.
(Auditory) You hear words and sounds, harsh or loving.

(Kinesthetic) You feel the emotion much like you would feel a bee sting

121 Brainwave Overview


Brainwaves

Your brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which use electricity to communicate with each other. The combination of millions of neurons sending signals at once produces an enormous amount of electrical activity in the brain, which can be detected using sensitive medical equipment (such as an EEG), measuring electricity levels over areas of the scalp.

The culmination of electrical activity of the brain is commonly called a BrainWave pattern, because of its cyclic, "wave-like" nature. Below is one of the first recordings of brain activity.

With the discovery of brainwaves came the discovery that electrical activity in the brain will change depending on what the person is doing. For instance, the brainwaves of a sleeping person are vastly different than the brainwaves of someone wide awake. Over the years, more sensitive equipment has brought us closer to figuring out exactly what brainwaves represent and with that, what they mean about a person's health and state of mind.

Here is a table showing the known brainwave types and their associated mental states:


Wave Frequency Mental State

Beta 12hz - 38hz

Wide awake, alert mental state. This is generally the mental state most people are in during the day and most of their waking lives. Using self-programming techniques at this level is not very effective, since the mind is not receptive. However, stimulating Beta waves directly can have a huge impact on intelligence, attention, mood, emotional stability and more.

SMR (sensorimotor rhythm) (12 -15Hz): Related to body motion as well as the ability to concentrate and fall asleep. Stimulating this can result in relaxed focus and improved attention. Generally a good thing to increase.

Beta 1 (15 - 20 Hz) - Can increase mental abilities, IQ, focus

Beta 2 (20 - 38Hz) - Highly alert, but also anxious


Alpha 8hz - 12hz

Awake but deeply relaxed and not processing any information. The brain almost immediately starts producing lots of Alpha upon eyes closed relaxation. This is the mental state you are in early in the morning or while daydreaming. This state enhances the vividness of visualization techniques, and also makes the mind more receptive to suggestion.


Theta 3hz - 8hz

Light sleep or extreme relaxation. Theta is also known as the hyper-suggestible state, where mental programming using recorded suggestions is most effective.

•Theta 1 - (3 - 5 Hz) If suppressed, can improve concentration, ability to focus attention

•Theta 2 - (5 - 8 Hz) Very relaxed and dreamful sleep, good for mental programming



Delta 0.2hz - 3hz

Deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the slowest band of brainwaves. When your dominant brainwave is Delta, your body is healing itself. Under most circumstances, you do not dream in this state and are completely unconscious.

Entrainment of the brain at this level is difficult. 2 hz and below is technically not fast enough to produce entrainment, in its strictest sense, and would be seen on an EEG as simple cortical evoked potentials. However, it is theorized that Delta has specific effects on the limbic system, the amygdala and hypothalamus in particular, which operate at delta frequencies. The limbic system affects emotions and the control of autonomic functions. Delta frequencies appear to "sooth" these neural structures and can be very effective reducing migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and blood pressure.

Although Delta is generally not as good as Alpha or Theta for meditation, people have found success using Delta for this purpose along with relaxation and of course sleep.


The Significance of Brainwaves

You can tell a lot about a person simply by observing their brainwave patterns. For example, anxious people tend to produce an overabundance of high Beta waves while people with ADD/ADHD tend to produce an overabundance of slower Alpha/Theta brainwaves.

Researchers have found that not only are brainwaves representative of mental state, but they can be stimulated to change a person's mental state, and even help treat a variety of mental disorders. Certain Brainwave patterns can be even be used to access exotic or extraordinary experiences such as "lucid dreaming" or ultra-realistic visualization.
