Having a free mind is about getting in touch with your subconscious beliefs, bringing them to the forefront of your consciousness, and eliminating ones that are not based on any evidence or reality.
The better you are at doing this, the more conscious you are (aware of yourself and the world around you). The more conscious you are, the more you can live your life based on reality.
Everything we expose our mind to affects our subconscious beliefs. That means from the day we are born we are exposed to things that shape our beliefs for us; from the schooling we receive to the advertising to the TV, beliefs are constantly being programmed into our subconscious.
We seldom realise that most of our thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.
The problem with this is that in a world full of noise and distractions it is hard to find the time to reflect, connect with what your subconscious beliefs are and think for yourself. This is becoming a problem the more we move towards a world reliant on the TV and screens to inform us about what is going on in the world.
TV is a form of hypnosis
Our subconscious minds have been programmed (hence why it’s called a tv programme) to believe what is shown on the TV. The TV is one of the most effective hypnotising tools out there significantly influencing your perception of the world.
When watching TV, brain waves lower into an alpha state (similar as with meditation and hypnosis). This state makes you highly suggestible to the information you receive on the screen. You are unable to critically analyse the information being presented. Hence, it can be easy to manipulate you with false information. All without you even consciously realising it because it is happening in your subconscious.
Many people might be somewhat aware of this and think that they can’t be tricked. But this isn’t about intellectual intelligence, conscious effort or out smarting the TV. This is the human condition and the human mind which is a lot more then intellectual intelligence. Often it’s those who think they are not susceptible who are actually the most susceptible.
Why would companies spend enormous amounts of money for advertising if it did NOT influence you?
Why would governments and media spend enormous amounts of time and money producing information if it did NOT influence you?
Do you really think they have your best interests at heart?
TV is the perfect tool of deception
It goes deeper than just manipulating you to buy a product or influencing what you should be thinking about. It shapes your entire perception of the world.
The impact of being hypnotised by the TV is what we see all around us. People acting in accordance with the information and beliefs that have been programmed into them by the TV.
All warfare is based on deception.Sun Tzu
Millions are being programmed to only focus on what they see and hear on the TV. Only what’s on the TV is what we should be concerned about. All the while, real atrocities and real issues go completely ignored and brushed under the carpet.
TV is also highly addictive. The body releases ‘feel good’ hormones when you ‘veg out’ in front of the TV. This ensures constant exposure for many people, a critical factor to programme your subconscious mind.
We are living through a psychological and spiritual war where no bullets have to be fired because people’s minds can be controlled with TV. If your mind can be controlled, your actions and behaviours can be controlled.
TV provides easy access to your subconscious, reduces your critical thinking ability and ensures constant exposure due to its addictive nature.
The main concern is that you have no control over what is coming into your subconscious.
Most TV now induces fear and negative emotions. Constant exposure to fear weakens immune function and is linked with issues like depression and premature aging.
You may not think it affects you because you know it’s not real. But your subconscious believes it’s real because it doesn’t know the difference between what’s real or imagined.
Your nervous system does not know the difference between a real or imagined experience.
Your subconscious believes it is real even if it is just imagined. So your mind, body and soul live all the fear and negative emotions from the TV.
This is just one example of the insidiously evil nature of the world we live in.
Be mindful with TV consumption
TV isn’t all bad if you are conscious and deliberate with what you watch. Consciously choosing to watch a sports match or your favourite TV show can be relaxing, enjoyable and stimulating in a good way.
But mindlessly watching TV for hours and hours every day is seriously damaging to your health and brain. This can be replaced with reading or learning something which is exercise for the brain. Be careful with what you consume (avoid advertising and mainstream
news propaganda as much as possible) and always keep your critical reasoning skills switched on so you do not let others control your mind for you.
