Issue #74 – Monday, August 14, 2017
Is there a difference between what you believe is true and what is really true?
Come to think of it: Are there varying degrees of truth? Or is Truth absolute? Does truth depend on what you believe about life, about yourself, about others?
In this issue of Mind Power, we’re going beyond belief to turn over some rocks, shine a light into the shadows, and discover…
...what’s really happening in that brain of yours that has the most powerful impact on your future.
We’ll ask some mind-bending questions and explore some practical solutions that will help you understand reality on a more resourceful way, so you can better navigate the “reality” you’re in, and …
...create the reality of your dreams.

How to Harness the Power of Your Brain
by Bill Harris
What is reality?
- My thought is me (Jean Paul Satre)
- I think therefore I am (Rene Descartes)
- I exist as I am (Walt Whitman)
Well, guess what: It doesn’t matter. What matters is what we believe reality is. Because what we believe is what shapes our lives…
...everything thought, every feeling, every action.
And most people do all of these things on autopilot, without understanding why or without making a choice about it.
So, not only is reality what you believe it is (for example):
- Money is scarce
- People are mean
- Life is short
- Love is elusive…
Your beliefs are so powerful that they actually create your present situation – and your future – in four very specific ways:
- How you feel
- How you behave
- Which people and situations you attract or become attracted to
- What meanings you assign to what happens
In summary, reality is what you make it.
You create your reality – past, present and future – based upon how you filter information about the world...based upon your beliefs.
So let's take a closer look at how you are creating your own reality through your beliefs. Once you understand this, you can proactively shift your beliefs to positive, resourceful attitudes and…
...start creating the life of your dreams.
To begin, let’s look at the three filters through which your brain processes “reality”:
These processes can change the reality of incoming information. Filter mechanisms are not necessarily a bad thing…
...as long as you use them consciously to reach a particular result you want.
Moment by moment, when there’s too much information coming at you for you to notice all of it, you simply delete some of it. As you walk through a room, there are an infinite number of details that hit your eye…
...but you can’t notice them all.
You don’t notice every spot on the carpet, every scratch on the furniture, every whorl in the wallpaper, every item in the room, and so on. The same thing is true for smells, tastes, sounds, and physical sensations.
Your filters determine which stuff you keep and which stuff you disregard, and this deletion process happens so automatically that you don’t even notice it. It’s not like you say, “Okay, let’s delete this, and keep this, and delete this...”
Your beliefs, values, decisions, memories, and strategies set up your personal deletion system, and it operates quickly and unconsciously.
In addition to sensual material, you have data and ideas coming at you. You use this information to decide what to believe, what to do, who to be attracted to, and how to make a decision.
The interesting aspect of this is that we tend to delete whatever does not agree with our current beliefs or values. When something is contrary to what you believe, you disregard it.
You delete it without even noticing it.
In order to override your tendency to automatically delete what doesn’t agree with your beliefs, there must be something huge and right in your face.
For example, if you’re a nerdy guy, you’ve probably felt invisible to women. Gorgeous women don’t pay any attention to you. If suddenly supermodel types start flirting with you…
...that would be such a unique experience that it might make you take notice of your beliefs and perhaps reevaluated them.
Also, the filters in our minds distort incoming information in order to verify what we already believe and value, what we’ve already decided. This distortion might be…
...adding something that isn’t actually there or changing it to look like something we recognize or agree with.
A simple example is how everything reminds you of food when you are hungry.
Here’s another example. If you believe that no one will ever love you, and someone turns you down when you ask them for a date…
...you might see that as evidence that you are, indeed, unlovable.
The real reason may have been that the person was already in a committed relationship or had another commitment that night. It could be that you just weren’t their type and it had nothing to do with your being unlovable.
You’ll either leave out some of the evidence or add something to it so that what’s happening agrees with your belief.
The third filter is generalization. Some generalizing is good. For example, if we didn’t make generalizations, we would have to re-learn what a door is and how to open it every time we came to one.
Generalizations can be bad when they stop us from seeing the differences that make something unique and…
...assume that it’s exactly the same as something else.
Let’s say you were cheated by your business partner who stole money from you, you could generalize that to mean “all men will steal from me” or “all business partners will take advantage of me.”
This assumes that just because other people share the same gender with the jerk who stole from you, they’re the same in other respects, including being dishonest and unreliable. From this perspective you don’t see things clearly…
...and your actions might create an outcome you don’t want.
Here’s a hint: When you hear words like all, never, always, no one, everyone, you might start looking for generalizations.
When your filters delete, distort, and generalize the input, what you perceive is not what initially came through your senses. The filtered version may or may not serve you.
Beliefs are those things we hold to be true and that determine our actions and our experience of life.
- We develop beliefs about who we are and what our relationship is to the rest of the world based on early life interactions and experiences, especially with our primary caregivers.
- Your beliefs, in combination with other aspects of your internal map of reality, create the results, circumstances, and experiences of your life.
Regardless of what you believe, you will find a way to create consistency between your life and your beliefs. Every deeply held belief is true to the person who believes it.
We do whatever it takes to make our beliefs be true.
- Significant negative emotional experiences create beliefs that are not resourceful and cause us to focus on what we do not want. The mind takes whatever you focus on as an instruction to create something.
To get what you want, you have to focus on what you want and have beliefs that help the mind to create that result.
- Since everything is true to the person who believes it, evaluating beliefs based on whether they are true or false is not helpful. Doing so is indulging in circular, fallacious logic. Conscious, happy people evaluate beliefs based on whether or not they are resourceful…
...do they create the desired results and experience of life?
- The most effective way to replace beliefs that do not serve you with those that do is to observe how beliefs creates results in your life. This watching process causes whatever is not resourceful for you to fall away and…
...whatever is resourceful to remain.
Once you have watched the creative process with awareness and have seen an unresourceful belief fall away, you are more likely to consciously choose a more resourceful belief that creates the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical results and outcomes you want.
- The first step in the process of replacing automatic, unconscious, unresourceful beliefs with conscious, resourceful beliefs is to discover what your core beliefs are.
The most effective way to determine your core beliefs is to examine the results you are getting. For example, if you believe at your core that money is the root of evil…
...you are likely to be poor—or evil.
- As long as you continue to hold the same beliefs, you’ll continue to get the same results because there’s no way to…
...continue to hold the same beliefs and get different results.
- To install a new belief, focus on it as often as possible and in every way you can think of.
Changing core beliefs can happen in the blink of an eye, but it usually takes most people a bit of time to complete the process.
Take it one step and one day at a time, and let the pace of your progress be okay, whatever it is.
Meditation, especially with Holosync® technology, greatly speeds up this process, because it helps you become more conscious and aware of what you’re creating because…
...it takes the emotional charge off things in your life and allows you to look at them from a more dispassionate perspective.
However long this process takes, it’s worth undertaking. There is a big difference between being an unconscious automatic response mechanism…
...and being a conscious creator of what you want.

This Really Happened
“I have been meditating for almost 18 years now and there have been huge changes in that time. But in the last two months since I began using Holosync, things are changing so fast it’s hard to believe.
“Things I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of for ages, and really put in a lot of ‘work’ on, are just dissolving beautifully. I seem to be seeing things so much more clearly, faster, and without the EFFORT.
“As far as I’m concerned the first level paid for itself in the first week and it just keeps getting better. I knew what my “problem” was intellectually but I couldn’t change it or get at it.
“So thank you for creating this great programme and I’m spreading the word.”
