What is a Mental Program?

A Mental Program is a set of instructions embedded in the brain. It can be triggered by 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 Program

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

Another reason is 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 by the actions and words of parents or peers during the first 7 to 8 years of our lives. 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 expressing that frustration through statements such as “you’ll never learn!” The child’s mind, being in such an open, receptive state, would come to associate the activity (reading) with the negative experience (being yelled at).¬†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 that 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.
