Negative forcing functions
do bad things to us. They restrict or block the vital
life force (Chi) flow through our bodies; install
negative programs in our subconscious mind and energetically
support them. The integration of these subconscious
programs determines our behavior, how we feel and
respond to life.
The five negative
forcing functions are:
1. Bad things that have
happened to us in this life;
2. Bad things that have
happened to us in previous lives;
3. Unresolved inner
4. Biological carry-overs
from our ancestors, and
5. Attachment of foreign
Let us talk about unresolved inner conflicts and what
they can do to us.
Most of us know about the power of the subconscious
mind. We have long known that, used to our advantage,
it can make our lives bright, happy and successful.
What is not generally known is that when we permit
it to function on its own, it can also have the opposite
effect. It can create a miserable, unsuccessful existence
for us. The subconscious can cure or create disease.
It is not that the subconscious mind is malicious.
Quite the contrary; it is always trying to protect
us. To do this, it uses rules learned over the years.
It learned these rules by observing a variety of sources
like parents, teachers, religious figures, peers,
friends, movies and TV. From these observations, the
subconscious makes generalizations and judgments (i.e.,
rules) about what constitutes acceptable behavior,
attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, actions, etc. in our
society and internalizes them. The subconscious adopts
these rules as "laws" for living life. These
rules become the way you are supposed to act, think,
and feel. From then on, the subconscious mind strives
to keep you within these laws.
This would be an excellent system if all of these
rules and laws were valid and useful. Unfortunately,
it is not always so. Some of these rules may not be
ones we would have chosen to instill into our minds.
If you were raised by parents who went through the
Great Depression, odds are that you have strong needs
for thrift and saving, maybe even a poverty consciousness
that inhibits your life. If we have foreign energies
attached to us or past life issues, we can experience
the attachment's rules or rules we had in past lives
that are no longer apropos in this life. The subconscious
mind survives death and carries forward to subsequent
lifetimes so what is in there continues to work on
The system can also set up conditions where, if an
appropriate model was used for an original observation,
inappropriate rules can be incorporated into the subconscious
mind. For example, it is well established that most
abusing parents were abused children. At some deep
level, abuse is seen as acceptable behavior.
Another place these unedited rules can become troublesome
is when conflicting models lead to the adoption of
conflicting rules. For example, a person can have
a rule that says people always stay married for life,
no matter what. They simultaneously can have a rule
that says that marriage is supposed to be happy. What
happens when they are caught in an unhappy marriage?
In addition, what causes abusing parents to seek help?
There must be a conflicting inner law that opposes
the law condoning abusive behavior. These inner conflicts
can cause us to get sick.
Studies have shown that our subconscious mind controls
all our bodily functions. "All functions"
means many functions that we once thought were beyond
our willful control or influence, such as the selective
control of blood flow to various parts of the body
or the activation of the immune system. Once we clear
the conflicts and reprogram the subconscious mind
with conscious thoughts and desires (perhaps to activate
the immune system programmed by visualizing the immune
cells as white sharks eating up cancer cells), it
responds by doing what we have reprogrammed it to
The subconscious mind learns from a variety of sources.
It takes instructions from guided imagery and visualization
techniques. However, it is also listening to what
we say and watching what we do. Therefore, it is also
important that we address these areas to make them
consistent with the goals we hold for visualization.
If we are visualizing getting better but constantly
telling ourselves how sick we are, we have set up
conflicting instructions in the subconscious mind.
(Remember, when you tell someone else something, your
subconscious mind is eavesdropping on the conversation.)
Similarly, if you are very pale, you should avoid
spending much time looking into a mirror and observing
this. The reflection reinforces illness, not recovery.
If you keep seeing more color returning to your face,
the mirror will reinforce the "I'm getting healthier"
message at the subconscious level. Why not just visualize
the healthier complexion to begin with?
The things we are discussing occur below the level
of our conscious awareness. We are simply using our
conscious processes to put into this subconscious
level those things we want to have operate there.
However, there is another class of rules mentioned
above: conflicting rules. What about the unhappily
married person who wants to be happy? It is almost
as if the subconscious mind is protecting the person
from the untenable situation by providing a way out.
You can't get divorced, but you can die of cancer
without shame or guilt. Moreover, it gets you out
of the marriage that is making you unhappy. Now, this
is an overstated example in order to make the point.
Nevertheless, there are many conflicts we set up within
ourselves because the subconscious has been allowed
to establish its own rules. Some of these say to us
repeatedly, "Life is awful!" (Or "unbearable").
The creative subconscious mind, once it has determined
that life is awful, finds a way out of the problem
- in this case, living. It can either shut down or
over activate one or more systems within the body.
The rest is automatic. For example, I know of a young
man who loved the violin. He was quite talented and
wanted to pursue a career as a violinist. However,
his family pressured him into studying law. To do
so, he gave up his dream. The story seemed to have
a happy conclusion. He was a great lawyer. He established
himself in a very successful practice and had a very
bright future ahead of him before he was 30 years
old. Then came the bad news. He was diagnosed with
an untreatable, inoperable brain tumor and given less
than a year to live.
Fortunately, this is not the end of the story. Our
young lawyer found the silver lining in the cloud.
At least he didn't have to practice law any longer.
The conflict resolved itself. He picked up his violin
and joined a small symphony orchestra. (Remember,
he was talented!) A year later, he was alive and well,
playing with a large symphony orchestra, and free
from any trace of brain tumor.
It is better to resolve inner conflicts before the
subconscious creates a life or death situation because
of the awfulness. Hypnotherapy can do this for us.
When we correct the conflicts in our lives and let
our true selves out to follow our preferred paths,
it seems that there is no longer any need to die to
get out of this "awful" life. Life simply
isn't "awful" any more.
