Theory of Mind explains How Your Mind Works.
In a Simple Way;
When you are born, You don’t know anything about the world. Your mind is like a blank page ready to be full.
You only have the Primitive Mind. In this mind, you have basic survival responses like Fight and Fligt. This represents how you handle and fight against stress or how you run away from stress.
The first 7 years of your life is where you record and download everything that you see, hear, taste, touch and feel. These things will be your experiences, your KNOWNS > Your Subconscious Mind
Of course, You will have positive and negative experiences in your life.
For example, you will have a dog while growing up. You will have positive experience about dogs.
You like chocolate cake.
You felt anxious around your father/mother. You develop negative experience.
Think about your life…. all the things you experienced while growing up… You will find your examples
Based on your experience, You will develop Your Beliefs.
After 8 years old, You develop Critical Mind. You cant take everything in to your subconscious mind because it is full now. You already created your beliefs about the world and people. This critical mind works as a filter. Every new information checks with your subconscious mind. If ıt does not match your belief, İt goes off
After 13 years of age, you develop Conscious Mind. You can now use your Logic, Reasoning, Analyzing, Decision Making. You also have your Will Power.
Your conscious mind has only 12% of total mind power whereas your subconscious mind has 88% of total mind power
Here is the challenge….
For example: You set a goal. You want to lose weight. You make the decision. It is logical. You have the will power to do that. You are good for a week then you decided to go and have dinner with one of your friends. You order the grilled chicken salad. Everything is fine but then the dessert tray comes and you smell the chocolate cake and you eat the chocolate cake.
What happens ?
Because you have a positive experience with the chocolate cake in your subconscious mind you eat the cake. Your Subconscious wins over your conscious mind
If you don’t have the belief or an experience to support what you want, you cannot get what you want
All experiences in your subconscious mind whether it’s positive or negative is known to you. You experienced it. You know what it is .You know how to deal with it and it’s your comfort zone.
Everything that is familiar and known to your subconscious mind is a Pleasure even if it’s a negative experience and you don’t want to experience it anymore.
The job of your subconscious mind is to protect you from pain anything that is unknown.
That,s why You will attract what you felt and experienced when you were a child. You will create the same feeling you used to feel
Let these information sink in…..
