Last week, Day Four of Karol K. Truman’s book, Feelings Buried Alive Never Die, I shared three personality characteristics and suggested you see if you could identify with them. I also touched upon what Truman believes needs to happen to get our lives back in balance. Today, I’ll focus on her definition of single-mindedness.
For better results in our life, it’s important for us to realize that we create our own reality. I’ve expressed this sentiment in many of my past blogs . . . we are the only one responsible and capable for creating our own reality. We create our reality by our feelings and thoughts at a deeper level – the level of our subconscious. Most of our feelings and thoughts were obtained from our childhood by the pre-programmed beliefs (often erroneous) of our parents or caregivers. When a strong feeling connects with our thoughts, an emotion is given life.
Truman shares that our left brain is the thinking and the conscious side, while the right side of our brain is our feeling and the subconscious side where the seat of our pre-programmed beliefs reside. The way that Karol Truman and Carolyn Mein believe is the way to test our true, subconscious beliefs is through muscle testing – otherwise known as kinesiology.
What is muscle testing? Let me outline in simple step-by-step format, how muscle testing works. This is a fictional account of how and what happens with muscle testing. A partner is necessary in order to perform the following actions.
- Get a partner to have them do the testing on you. Hold your arm straight out in front of you while your partner performs the next few steps.
- Your desire: You want to receive a greater income. Your partner should use their hand to push your arm downward while asking you, “do you think you desire an income of $100,000/year?” While pushing down on your arm, your arm tests STRONG and doesn’t move.
- Next, testing the same arm, your partner asks you the following question, “do you feel you desire an income of $100,000/year?” At this point, your arm will test weak when pushed downward as it falls towards the floor if your thinking and feeling about this desire are contradictory.
- More than likely, your arm action from Step Three goes weak because your belief is most likely that you don’t deserve $100,000/year income, or you can’t be a good person if you earn that much, or you aren’t capable of earning $100,000/year.
This example is what Truman calls, becoming single-minded. She says that in order to become single-minded, we have to bring together both sides of our brain to integrate our thinking and feelings to become one, or whole.
The more effective we become at recognizing our beliefs, feelings and emotions, the more capable we will be to make the necessary changes that lead to receiving the peace, goodness and abundance we so desire.
Remember one important thing – if our perception of our beliefs are really distorted and untrue from childhood, our mind/body still believes the original recording and will act it out even though we try to mask the belief with positive thinking.
Our subconscious side is powerful and it has engraved this original belief, feeling and emotion deep within our mind/body. As a child, or even as an adult, if we embraced the feeling of guilt, or that we are so dumb, or that we make mistakes all the time, that is what will occur in our life today.
Until we tap into this reservoir of trapped emotions, our life will become a broken record. We will always receive what we’ve received in the past by embedding these emotions even deeper and deeper, layer upon layer in the groove of our subconscious. If we are not receiving our desired results, we are not single-minded.
Tomorrow, Day Six, I will work through a few examples of situations that you just might recognize going on in your life today. Karol Truman has a storehouse of examples that I really identified with. These examples are the real reason I”m focusing a big part of my journey on the road to single-mindedness.
