Ninety Percent of What We Think is Conditioned Thought From the Past

Once an individual comes to the place where they believe without a doubt that we all create our own reality, they  still have work to do before they can actually begin to manifest moment to moment. The reason for this is that we have been conditioned from a very early age to think limiting thoughts. Science has until recently stated that most of our thinking and ideas are set by the time we are in our late teens or early twenties. After that time, the common wisdom states, the only change in our brains would be a deterioration in function as we enter old age.

Our society is in great measure one of negativity and lack and want. We are trained from a very early age by the school system and our families to believe the following in varying degrees:

  • it is not possible to have everything we desire
  • what others think of us is of paramount importance
  • certain gender/racial groups are more entitled to privileges than certain minority groups
  • we must not question anything
  • in order to have a good religious experience, we must depend on church leaders rather than ourselves
  • we must depend on the exterior world for our good
  • it is not possible to change the things that we would like to change
  • it is wrong to question those in authority
  • we must always be satisfied with undesirable situations
  • bullying is something that people must buck up and deal with
  • animals have no rights and animal abuse is not a crime

The list could go on and on. Just think about every limiting parameter in your life. These thoughts  can be changed through rewiring your brain and going forward and manifesting a different situation. Our society and those of other societies around the world have found it almost impossible to change their belief systems in any significant manner within a short period time. Even things which are patently absurd but which gain  ground, are accepted as truth. Trying to get others to see how ridiculous some of these beliefs are is nearly impossible if the belief has been entrenched.

I have read that 90% of what we think is the result of conditioning at an early age. Much of that conditioning is negative. It is really sobering to realize that we only have control of 10% of our thoughts. We need to break this barrier and have all of our brain available to re-think the limiting beliefs and claim our birthright as spiritual beings having a human experience. Fortunately, this can be done. I will give an example of how various meditative techniques can actually change the structure of the brain.
