Do you read into everything too much, react too much, feel too much, and sense too much and you know it is all do to your thinking?
Sometimes it seems like your mind is working against yourself. That your mind is always negative and you have no control over it? Did you ever wish you could just edit your mind like you edit your documents on your computer? Change how your mind works and your mind produce thoughts you like? Have you ever pondered why you say some of the things you say unintentionally, think the strange thoughts, act in a way that are inappropriate with who you are, respond incorrectly to the situations, or why you are just uncomfortable in your own skin? Do you wish that you could just edit your mind and make it produce thoughts you like?
Do you ever question whether your mind is not allowing you to be who you want to be? Is it messing up your careers, relationships, or how much fulfillment you have as well as your future successes? If your answer is yes or sometimes, there is a strong possibility your inability to be who you want and how you function in life is caused by your mind script or mind code.
You really think that your thoughts are the core of your identity. But while your thoughts are undeniably generated that is not where you as a person originates. The truth is ... it is not your thoughts which drive your identity and life it is your mind code.
Roots of Me
Tracing the roots of your thoughts to their deepest layers of your mind can be extremely beneficial and can help you be more compassionate toward yourself and why you think the way you do. The origination of your thoughts or what drives you as a human could help you to deal with anxieties, phobias, neuroses and general questions of why your life is the way it is.
Yet focusing too much and getting caught in examination the why your thoughts are so negative, and your need to control them (especially the disturbing ones), can throw you off in your search of where they come from and cause confusion and feel a sense of loss. In fact, the more you overly focus on your thoughts for the “answer”, the more you do not find the answer and distance yourself from you. Over focusing on them does not you’re your thoughts more legitimacy, influence and solidity. Believe it or not, your thoughts do not over rule your emotions and actions.
What drives your emotions and actions?
Do you feel like everything that you say and do is predetermined? You are normal if you think that way. Your thoughts are not the driver of your identity but only the passenger. Your thoughts are just a part of the big picture ... they are more like the tip of the iceberg. Thoughts are only the by-product of the script that is written deep within your mind as you grow up and form an identity. The truth is your conscious mind can only believe, do, feel, react, or think as a result of what is written in your mind script. Nothing more and nothing less. Meaning you or your identity is only a manifestation of your mind script.
What is mind code?
Mind code, also termed mind script, starts being written at the time your brain activates before you are born. Once activated, your brain records all your history. This recording ability is called memory. Memory or the recording of your history is one small aspect of your total brain function. Unknown to you, in another compartment of your brain, mind code is being written from accumulated data.
Mind code? What is that? Even though you think your thoughts are created by you and you are in control of them, you really are not. Sometimes your thoughts seem to be completely out of control, and you feel like you are just tagging along for the ride. You mind script is data collected by your mind throughout all your experiences in your life and imprinting them on your subconscious mind. This data is used to form your core beliefs, messages you form about yourself from your experiences. It is your core beliefs that supply content for you inner voice, which can either critical or supportive. Then it is the flavor and perception of your inner voice that produces you thoughts. It is essence of your thoughts then governs whether your emotions and actions are motivating or self-limiting and self-defeating. Your thoughts are displayed through your facial expressions, emotions and behaviors. No one outwardly sees this process until your script or content of your thoughts are revealed or displayed in your facial expressions, emotions and behaviors which others see.
Mind code is the result of ongoing imprinting and embedding of life data which is gathered in every situation in you experience. This data or code is a systematic collection of all your beliefs formed about yourself, others and the world. Mind script also records all your biases, doubts, expectations, fears, instructions, likes, dislikes, self-messages, procedures, promises, regulations and rules. The embedded data develops into a script, a written code that constantly runs silently in the background, deep within your subconscious mind and governs who and how you will be. Simply it governs your identity. This script or step by step operating code manages, determines and influences who you are, what you say, how you react … meaning it is the script which controls and determines your identity.
How does mind code express itself in your life?
Your mind code expresses itself eventually through your beliefs, and it is your beliefs which influence your thoughts directly. Then indirectly your behaviors, facial expressions, emotions and reactions are formed from your thoughts.
6 Tips on How to Edit Your Thinking
1. List all the beliefs you know you have about yourself.
2. Assess which of your beliefs about yourself are beneficial and which are not beneficial.
3. Make a mark next to the core beliefs you want to change.
4. Edit the content by writing a new core beliefs.
5. Say each one out loud with emotion. Emotion is what avoids your perceptual filters and embeds the new core beliefs in your subconscious mind.
6. Repeat your new list 2 times a day for 67 days. First time when you first wake up and 2nd time just before you close your eyes
to go to sleep.
In changing your core beliefs, your brain automatically edit your old core beliefs and you will operate on a whole new script. Once the script is edited, your thinking will change along with your facial expressions, behavior and emotions. Finally down the road your identity will change and you will appear to be different.
It is your mind code which is the root and true predictor of your identity. So who you are outwardly, how you feel, what you say, types of thoughts, and react to, is always a manifestation of your mind code in the end.
So when dark thoughts arise, recognize them, grab them by the tail, and follow the thoughts back from your inner voice to the core beliefs where they originated and edit them. Therefore changing you.
Don't let your code be the master of who you are. Be the architect of your own script, and you will be the master of your identity. Your identity is not rigid or unchangeable. In fact it is flexible. Take back your ability to change.
If you need more help in rewriting your core beliefs in order to remove negative, self-limiting and self-sabotaging thinking, be brave and reach out. Don’t let your mind script destroy your ability to get what you want out of life.
