Negative suggestions are unnatural

Here’s another Seth quote that shows the universe (and “you-niverse”) is wired for fulfillment … health, exuberance and love.


Let’s live that feeling today!!!

“People are not simply swung willy-nilly by one negative suggestion or another, however.  Each person has an entire body of beliefs and suggestions – and these are quite literally reflected in the physical body itself.
“All practical healing deals with the insertion of positive suggestions and the removal of negative ones.  As we mentioned earlier, each smallest atom or cell contains its own impetus toward growth and value fulfillment.  In other words, they are literally implanted with positive suggestions, biologically nurtured, so to that extent it is true to say that in a certain fashion negative suggestions are unnatural, leading away from life’s primary goals.  Negative suggestions could be compared to static sounding on an otherwise clear program.”

Inherited Diseases

“There are diseases that people believe are inherited, carried from one generation to another by a faulty genetic communication.  Obviously, many people with, for example, a genetic heritage of arthritis do not come down with the disease themselves, while others indeed are so afflicted.  The difference is one of belief.
“The people have accepted the suggestion uncritically that they will inherit such a malady do then seem to inherit it: they experience the symptoms.  Actually, the belief itself may have changed a healthy genetic message into an unhealthy one.  Ideally, a change of belief would remedy the situation.”

Aging

“Many people believe fervently that with approaching age they will meet a steady, disastrous deterioration in which the senses and the mind will be dull, and the body, stricken with disease, will lose all of its vigor and agility.  Many young people believe such nonsense, and therefore they set themselves up to meet the very conditions they so fear.
“The mind grows wiser with age when it is allowed to do so.  There is even an acceleration of thought and inspiration, much like that experienced in the adolescent years, that suddenly brings a new understanding to the aged individual, and provides an impetus that should help the person to achieve greater comprehension – a comprehension that should quell all fears of death.”

Childhood Programming

Bruce Lipton talks about “nature” and “nurture”.  Nature is the state of our DNA at birth and the basic reflexes, instincts and "operating system" of the brain.  Nurture, is the “programming" of the brain … which starts even before birth.  

It is important to realize that both the DNA and “wiring” of the brain change throughout our life.  For example, we can reprogram the brain using Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) … NLP is how humans get programmed to buy things or smoke cigarettes etc. by watching repetitive, emotionally charged commercials.  NLP is also being exploited politically … e.g. Trumps Twitter use, our emotionally charged, repetitive political campaigns, the daily news, etc..

The trick is to be aware of what’s happening and what our thoughts and feelings are in each moment and to make choices.  It is also important to hold an “Idea” to navigate by, which guides our moment-to-moment choices so that we head in the intended “direction” in this lifetime.

“Many such suggestions are “old-hat idioms”.  They belong to the past, and again they escape the questioning and examination that are usually given to new ideas.

“These suggestions may be remarkably long-standing, therefore, and consist of beliefs received in childhood.  Accepted now in the present, noncritically, they may still affect health and well-being.  Such suggestions can be beneficial and supportive, or negative and detrimental. Here are some examples that should be quite familiar to many people.”

“There are other kinds of suggestions that involve identification.  A child may be told: “You are just like your mother, she was always nervous and moody”.  Or: “You are fat because your father was fat”.

“These are all statements leading toward a certain hypothesis.  Again, the problem is that often the hypotheses remain unquestioned.  You end up with structured beliefs unexamined, that are then automatically acted upon.”

The power of suggestions

“Suggestions are usually statements directed toward a particular action or hypothesis.  To a large extent, suggestions are tied into conscious thought processes, following the dictates of reason.  For example: “If thus and thus be so, then thus and thus must follow”.  There is no magic connected with suggestions – but repeated often enough, and believed in fervently, such suggestions do indeed take on a deeply habitual nature.  They are no longer examined, but taken for literal truth.
“They are then handed over to the more automatic levels of personality, where they trigger the specific actions that are so strongly implied.”

Limiting beliefs degrade health

“The sooner you can rid yourself of rigid beliefs about the survival of the fittest, the better you will be.  All philosophies that stress the idea of the body’s impurity or degradation should also be seen as detrimental to bodily and spiritual integrity.  Such beliefs clutter up your conscious mind with negative suggestions that can only frighten the exterior ego and impede the great strength and vitality that is your heritage from lending you the fullest possible strength and support.”

Health

“The subject of health cannot be considered in an isolated fashion, but must be seen in that greater context that gives health itself a value and a meaning. As mentioned earlier, each person will also try to fulfill their own unique abilities, and to “fill out” the experience of life as fully as possible.
“If an individual is hampered in that attempt strongly and persistently enough, then the dissatisfaction and frustration will be translated into a lack of physical exuberance and vitality.  There is always an unending reservoir of energy at the command of each person, however, regardless of circumstances …”
