The reticular activator.
There is a part of the human brain called the reticular activator system. It’s a group of cells about the size of the tip of your little finger. It’s the filter in your brain for everything that comes into your consciousness. Essentially it lets in (and retains) anything that is relevant and important to you and filters out anything that isn’t. Accordingly, when you read your visualization each morning, you reinforce for the reticular activator what is important and significant to you.
This is why, from a biology standpoint, the law of attraction works. When you have a clear and crisp vision of what you want, you attract it…both from the outside world and from your inside world.
Your subconscious mind-it works with the reticular activator
The subconscious mind’s function is to store and retrieve data let in by the reticular activator. It’s job is to ensure that you respond (your everyday actions and thoughts) exactly the way you are programed.
Your subconscious mind makes everything you say and do fit a pattern consistent with your self-concept. It does NOT think and reason independently. It merely obeys the commands it receives from the conscious mind .Your conscious mind sets the intention, your subconscious mind simply obeys and creates the action.
Your ability to influence your subconscious mind comes down to repetition. It will not begin to respond until you’ve read your visualization approximately 21 days in a row. But after 21 days, your subconscious mind causes you to feel emotionally and physically “uncomfortable’…. whenever you attempt to go against how you are programed. It’s the “working together” of the reticular activator and the subconscious mind that makes what you read each morning in your visualization show up later each day in your life, and do so automatically.
