Willpower, Imagination and Belief

Mind Programming

Imagination VS Willpower

Willpower is meant to fail.

Consider how difficult it can be to relax once a situation begins to make you nervous. Often, the more you try to relax, the more nervous you become. Some lucky people have learned to take deep breaths and picture something relaxing or humorous. Nevertheless, most people will go through their entire lives without being able to relax on command.

The mind responds to what you believe, not what you want. If you believe something, your mind will go to whatever lengths necessary to make that belief true, including changing you and your perception, or even changing the world around you if it can.

Belief and Imagination“I’ll believe it when I see it!”

What is more convincing than actually experiencing something? Not even a testimonial from a very reputable source would be more convincing than your own first hand experience. Your subconscious mind works this way too, if you experience something, your subconscious mind lets down its guard and accepts it as true.

Belief and imagination both trigger the same mental mechanism. In fact, it could be said that belief and imagination are the same mechanism, because they have the same effect.

Try a little experiment. Get a rubber band and shoot it at a spot on the wall 10 times. Now sit back and take 5 minutes to imagine the rubber band hitting the exact spot on the wall every time you shoot it. It never misses in your mind. Every time you shoot, it hits the same spot. In your mind, shoot 10 times and make it hit every time. After 5 minutes of visualization, shoot at the same spot another 10 times. The majority of people will find their shots are much more accurate than before. If you are already good at shooting rubber bands, try something else, like flipping a quarter and catching it with your eyes closed.

The mind can’t tell the difference

The subconscious mind can not tell the difference between imagination and real experience. Going back to a previous example, by simply imagining or thinking about food, it’s easy to become hungry and even start to salivate. Of course you know it is not real, but your subconscious mind does not, and its mental reaction is the same.

Using sensitive medical equipment, scientists can spot which parts of the brain “light up” when a person has an experience. What is amazing is that the exact same areas light up when the person is asked to simply imagine the same experience. The neural, electrical response to a real experience is almost identical to that of imagination!.

The quirk of imagination is something that can be leveraged with mental programming. If you imagine a positive change in your self or actions, your mind may start to act to make the visualization a reality.

The remarkable effects of imagination increase with the clarity of the experience inside your head. Visualizing while in deep alpha, near theta, is enormously powerful because you are near a dream state, which is as vivid as mental imagery gets.
