As a metaphysical psychologist, before I can implant a new idea into a client’s mind, I must condition them. Conditioning, according to Dictionary.com has dozens of definitions but the one I am going to cover is a circumstance indispensable to some result; prerequisite; that on which something else is contingent. Conditioning is a process of dissolving self-defeating beliefs in order to make room for enriching beliefs. If one is not properly conditioned the new concept or idea will be polluted with remnants of the old idea or not allowed to enter entirely. Benjamin Franklin noted, “A man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still.
To help someone change their mind is a difficult undertaking. The art of persuasion is much more of a science than an art but is probably a combination of both. Salesmen get a bad rap as they are well versed in the science of persuasion, which is merely a form of conditioning. If people would evaluate their needs and wants and arm themselves with all the choices they might confront, they probably would not be manipulated by salesmen. When we all begin to learn to condition ourselves by questioning our truth and learning other ways of seeing things we will gain a power and self-respect that we were intended.
I am much more confident by evaluating all the boogie men my clients bring with them for me to disarm. Most of us have been told the truth held by others only to find that it is not our truth. Until I began to investigate my vaults of truths I have been handed did I find how much I was marching through life unarmed. By evaluating my own life and what does and doesn’t work for me I become conditioned to accept new truths. Even new truths may only be transient, therefore I inventory my beliefs often and thoroughly. I doubt that my clients will ever receive nearly the results that I do. If you want to know where to start your conditioning remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
