In this class, you will learn how to manifest any goal, and how to use the reality control room to reprogram your subconscious mind.
Brandon: Welcome to The Art of Reality Creation 2.0. This is class #3, and as always, we are here with Brandon and Christine.
Justin: And Justin!
Christine: Justin, hi. I was waiting. I didn't know if you were trying...
Brandon: [laughs] And Justin, too. We do the same every week.
Christine: I thought you announced them all and then I'd...
Brandon: Nope. Usually I say hi after I say "Christine."
Christine: Sorry. I'm a little out of it, today.
Brandon: We may be able to get through everything today because we haven't gotten a ton of questions about the material so far on things we haven't covered. I think we may be able to cover the remaining material today, possibly. I know what material I want to cover, so you'll just see how that works.
Just as a reminder, the first class we covered inertia versus dynamism. That's one of the most important concepts, I'd say, in all of this: how to use inertia, when to use dynamism. Last class we discussed how to choose your goals, what kind of goals there are, how to know what kind of goal you have (whether it's a current level, next level, ultimate level goal) and how to approach it. We gave some general tips for approaching each type of goal, and today we'll get a bit more specific with all of that. Really, a lot of it is very similar, but we'll give a bit more advice about that kind of thing. That's what happened in the last class.
Why the Process Focuses on Next Level Goals
Brandon: Today will be about the creation process in general. This applies mainly...Current level goals don't really play a part in this because a current level goal...
Christine: You don't have to do much.
Brandon: You think about and it happens. I was just commenting to Christine about this the other day. Last week I had a random thought like, "Oh, it'd be nice to get another sign-up for Co-Creation Coaching." Then maybe a day later, if that, I got a sign-up. Then a few days later, I said, "It'd be cool to get another sign-up." It was just a random thought. Then I got another sign-up. That's a current level goal. If it's not that easy, it's really not a current level goal. You don't have to do any of this stuff for a current level goal.
For an ultimate level goal, you're really going to break it up into multiple next level goals, so really what we're dealing with is next level goals. Either it's so simple you don't have to do any of this anyway, or it's so far above you that you're going to have to break it down anyway because you can't do it all in one jump. This is really the art of knowing how to get to the next level. If you can get to the next level, then you can get to the next level above that, and you can get to the next level above that, and so on and so on. You get to your goal no matter where it is. If it's on this level, then cool. You don't have to do any of this stuff. Just skip it all. [laughs]
Brandon: But if it's a really big goal, you break it down and chunk it up and do each one individually. So it's really all dealing with next level goals. That's really the building blocks we have here. I think it's useful to break it down in that way. That's what we're going to be discussing: basically, how do you get to the next level? How do you generate (we'll talk about subconscious structures momentarily, but you probably already know about those) the subconscious structures to get to your next goal, whatever that is? I want you to have in mind a next level goal. If your goal is ultimate level, just break it down. Choose something that's next level. That's what I want you to do for this class. Apply these techniques as we discuss them. See how you might do the things we're talking about.
We talked about inertia. Inertia is just the way that things are going, the current level, what's here right now. That's great. That's fine. If you have a next level goal, obviously you want to break that inertia. You want to apply some dynamism.
Two Parts of the Process
Brandon: The whole process I divide into two sections. Generally these are the creative process (the time when you're actually sitting down and doing a technique, ritual, journaling, visualizing, affirming, or whatever it is you're doing) and the rest of it (which I call the "debugging" process). Do you remember this from the first "The Art of Reality Creation"?
Brandon: Debugging is just the rest of the time you're dealing with stuff that comes up to the surface. It may be immediately after the technique. It may be in the middle of the day when you're in your commute or something and you get hit by these negative thoughts. Where did that come from? It came from the work you did earlier or last night or whatever for your goal. That's where it came from. [laughs] Then you have debugging. That's basically the two parts of the process.
Don’t Overextend the Creation Part
Brandon: Here's the big thing: you don't want the creative part of the process to be overextended. It's supposed to be a process you do, you let go of, and you go about your day. We have these people who have been commenting who try to do it all day long. They try to keep the feeling in their minds all day and try to always be thinking the right way and always be visualizing and whatever. They're pretending they're at their goal. The creative process lasts maybe 5, maybe 10 minutes. I will tell you I never do 10 minutes. I will tell you I never do 10 minutes. Generally, maybe 5 minutes. The creative process is not really long. I think a lot of you are overestimating the whole thing. It doesn't take that much power. [laughs]
Justin: Go as long as you feel you really need to go. Then absolutely drop it, because you've got to let the energy go out and do its work. You've got to let it go out and do its work. I'm not saying this is the easiest thing in the world, because it's not, but if you don't let it go out and do its work, it's not going to come back to you.
Brandon: Your goal is something that is growing apart from you. It's not in you, per se. It's not just in your mind. It's actually a real energetic construct that is growing in the astral.
Justin: In the astral plane, yes.
Brandon: It's growing. Every time you work on it, it's growing a bit more. But if you keep hanging on to the energy, you can't let it go to go do its thing. I'm sorry, this is the most random analogy in the whole...
Christine: And you yell at me about being random.
Brandon: World. I'm so sorry about this one. Do you know those people who write a message in a bottle and throw it out to sea? [laughs] It's like doing that and not letting go of it. Just holding on to it. "I wonder if anyone found it." No, because you haven't let go of it yet.
Christine: Did you already throw it or not?
Brandon: No, you haven't thrown it. You're holding on to it.
Justin: By all means, when you get the feeling to do something. Like, I'm writing a book, so when I get the feeling to write, I write. But then afterwards, you let it go. You can't just hold on to it or it's not going to come to you.
Brandon: Exactly. The creative process has to be a very short-term thing. What I mean by that is, you do it for a few minutes, build up the energy, build up the energy, release the energy, and then you let it go.
Christine: You know what it reminds me of that might be a more practical analogy?
Brandon: Yes. Thank you.
Christine: Well, we'll see how my analogies are. If you're about to send in paperwork in the mail. "I wonder what they're going to think." Or an email. And you haven't sent it. "I wonder what they're going to say. I'm afraid to send it."
Brandon: That is a better analogy. [laughs]
Christine: Ha-ha. And you yell at me.
Brandon: It just popped into my head, and I'm doomed to repeat anything that pops into my head during a class.
Christine: No more yelling at me about it, then.
Brandon: [laughs] It kind of made sense.
Christine: Sort of.
Brandon: You only want to do it for a few minutes because you build up that energy (which is great) and then you've got to let go of the energy. If you don't do that, it's not going to go anywhere. It's not going to do its thing and build your goal up. You have to let go of the energy. That has to be part of the whole process. Otherwise, it's just going to stagnate and not do anything. You'll feel that. I know I've done this before. You hold on to it and hold on to it and hold on to it and nothing happens.
Christine: I'm good at it, too.
Brandon: "I'm feeling it all day long." Yes, that's the problem! You don't have to be in this state all day long. You just have to do it for a few minutes and then let it go. The rest of your day doesn't really matter much. I remember when I would read Richard Dotts. I really like Richard Dotts, you know that. When I would read his books, he would say, "You've got to feel good all day. Manifestation is 24/7." So I would try to feel good all day. It really didn't make any difference. Honestly, now when I get manifestations super quickly (I've said this before; I don't mean to beat a dead horse) I'm not super joyful all day. I'm just a normal person. I'm really not in any super-high emotional state or anything like that. I'm just normal. I just feel whatever everyone feels all day. Sometimes I even have pretty low-grade anxiety.
Christine: Do you ever.
Brandon: [laughs] I don't feel phenomenal. Let's just say that. I don't feel terrible, but I don't feel phenomenal or anything, and I get a lot of manifestations. It's not down to emotions. It's just doing the process when you do it--hopefully once a day, preferably maybe twice if you want to--but don't keep hanging on to it. You do it. You let it go. That's about it. That is a big thing that people get into sometimes: obsessing.
Christine: It's like someone always wanted to ride on training wheels on a bike. That's me because I can't balance.
Justin: I have great balance.
Brandon: I'm jealous.
Christine: Lucky you. You can teach it to us.
Brandon: [laughs] You have to let go of it. That's just one big part of the process. Let's talk about the creative process first. Then we'll talk about the debugging process. You all know about structural tension at this point, but I will describe it just in case you don't. I would go back and read my old posts on it because I don't want to cover everything. We wouldn't have the time to do all that.
The Seed Analogy
Brandon: What I want to introduce is what I've described before as "vibrational essence" or "vibrational signature." Take your pick. It doesn't really matter. Let's just say vibrational signature. It's more sciency-sounding to me. You have the vibrational signature of your goal.
Now, don't overanalyze this. I had someone saying, "What if you're a little bit off?" Don't overanalyze this. It's just generally what you would feel if you had the goal right now or if you had just gotten it. It doesn't have to be ecstatic, just the way you would feel if you got the goal. That's a vibrational signature. You don't have to get it right-on because you're going to be homing in on it throughout this whole process. Don't worry about getting it right-on. Just ask yourself, "How would I feel if I had this goal?"
The reason I want to bring this up first is, you can imagine this vibrational signature as a seed. In programming, we have this term called a "seed." You seed a random number generator or something.
Christine: I didn't know this.
Brandon: Basically (because computers are not good at random numbers) it means you seed it. Or it could mean you seed a database. You give it default data. You seed a random number generator because otherwise, it will give predictable results. You seed it with the current time or something, and then it gives random numbers. That is sort of how this is. You're seeding the goal. You can think of it as a regular seed, too. It's sort of the same difference. Basically, this is a seed.
What happens is, energetically speaking, you take this vibrational signature or seed, and you go down deep with it. You go down into your subconscious with it. Anytime you hold a thought or a feeling, your subconscious and energetic field (which is synonymous) will attempt to synchronize with that thought. If I think "I want $50,000 a year," that is a thought. That is a vibrational signature. That is a seed.
If I hold that seriously (choose it with my will and all that kind of stuff), my subconscious mind will try to synch up with that thought. Take a thought that you already believe, like, "I choose to make" whatever you make now. Say you make $30,000. "I choose to make $30,000 a year." Feel how comfortable that thought is. Ignore how you want to make more. Ignore that part of it. Just take, "I choose to make $30,000 a year." Just take that part and feel how comfortable it is. Your subconscious mind can synch up with it. It says, "Yes, okay, that's how it is. Sure, whatever."
Justin: It's almost like wearing a cloak or a coat or something.
Brandon: It can synch up with that just fine. Now, if you say, "I would like to make $35,000," (raise it up a little bit), there's a little discomfort. "Okay, I can probably do that." Take $50,000 or something significantly higher than what you make, and it's going to start to feel uncomfortable. Here's what happens. You take a thought, which is your seed, and you hold it. Your subconscious mind or energy field tries to synch up with it. It tries to synchronize itself to it.
It tries to attune itself to that energy because your subconscious mind does not like contradiction. It doesn't like contradiction. If you tell it something, it's going to try to agree with it. If it can't agree with it, you'll feel uncomfortable. If I say, "I'd like to make $30,000" and that is what I'm already making, it says, "Yes, I can agree with that. Fine. Sure. I can fully agree with that. I'm on board with it. Cool."
If I say, "I'd like to make $50,000," then the subconscious says, "Wait a minute. We don't have that right now. Let me see if I can have it." It goes searching. Can I have $50,000 a year? It runs into all the obstacles that are in the way of you having $50,000. I'm not talking about physical obstacles. That's nothing to your subconscious. That's nothing. It can generate a pathway very easily. If you were ready for $50,000 and just not having it yet, it would be a current level goal. You could have it just like that. [snaps] It would synch up with it just fine. It would create a pathway. It looks for ways to get there, and it runs into an obstacle, like a belief like "I can't make that much" or "It's hard to make more money" or "More money equals more work."
Christine: Because it's such a big jump from 30 to 50.
Brandon: Right, exactly. It tries to synch up with your goal or thought, and it can't do it. Now, that's an awesome thing. I know it's a pain in the butt, but it's really good.
Christine: [laughs] Yes. We'd be manifesting stuff that wasn't good for us.
Brandon: Right. It's protective, because you don't want every little thought manifesting right away.
Justin: No, you don't. Trust me.
Brandon: You hold a thought. Your subconscious mind tries to synch up with it because that thought is like a seed. It tries to make that happen. It either can, in which case it's a current level goal....So, when I thought last week that it'd be really cool if someone signed up because no one had for a little while, and someone did, that's a current level goal. I thought that thought, and the subconscious mind said, "Yes, I can get on board with that," and it did, and it happened. I had nothing to do with it. I just thought the thought. I didn't do anything. I didn't take any action.
But if it can't get there because of some limiting belief or subconscious program, then it will come back and say, "Wait a second. We can't do it because you told me to believe blank. Would you rather have this thought you're holding, or would you rather me keep believing blank?" Blank is "Money is too hard to make" or "If you try to make more money, you have to work harder, too" or whatever belief is in the way. It might not tell you exactly, but you'll start to have random thoughts that are fearful. That's the start of the creative process. That's the structural tension.
The moment you go within yourself and hold that seed or vibrational seed or goal, you've generated tension. The subconscious knows you don't have it yet. It also knows it can't get there yet. When there's tension, it needs to resolve it. That's structural tension. It doesn't like tension. It tries to resolve it. It will either tell you, "You can't have it. Drop the vision already. Let's get back to status quo and homeostasis. Let's return back." Most people will do that. "Oh, yeah, it's just too hard." The subconscious loves that because it really just wants the norm and homeostasis. It wants everything to be normal. Most people will do that. It's a very attractive option. "We can't do it. Why even try? Just drop the whole thing." That's normally what people will do.
Your Subconscious Reacts to Your Emotions
Brandon: But, where creation comes in is when you say, "No, no no. I want this goal. And I want it more than I want that belief." I described this in a post I did recently (today, actually) about "Are You Leading Life, or is Life Leading You?" Basically, obviously logically speaking, you're going to say, "Heck, yeah. I want to have my goal more than I want that belief." But your subconscious mind doesn't care about what you really want. It cares about what you react to emotionally.
You've got to understand this emotional key to the subconscious. Emotions are really how the subconscious speaks to you and how you speak to the subconscious. If you have that goal, that feels good, great. But then it brings up that belief, and that's a stronger emotional reaction. You're really reacting to that fear. It says, "Oh, I got it. This belief is still just as important as before, so never mind the goal." The belief is strengthened.
It brings up this sequence of ultimatums or either-ors. Do you want this goal or do you want this belief? Based on what you react to emotionally, that's how the subconscious knows what your choice is. You can't just say, "No, I want the goal." The subconscious mind doesn't know language. What it does know is emotion. The way you tell your subconscious mind what you want is how you feel. We'll discuss that more later on, how you do that.
You have to feel how you want to feel. You have to make the goal more important than that little fearful thought. That's the way you start to change those subconscious structures. That's the way you start to grow the energy of that goal. You keep choosing it over and over and over again through your emotions. You make it more important than those subconscious fears, beliefs, and programs. It's just a process of choosing one over the other, choosing a goal over the other belief.
It's just that process, but it's really hard because it's going to fight back. Your subconscious mind wants homeostasis. It wants the status quo. It's so important to realize. I said this before. It doesn't care about you feeling good. It just cares about safety, normalcy. It just wants everything to be the way it is. New things are scary. New things are unknown and unfamiliar. "What are you trying to do to us?" [laughs] It doesn't want all that.
Christine: Once you program it, though, it's pretty simple.
Brandon: Yes. Once you start to show it, "No, this goal is more important," then it starts to be familiarized with it because you're feeling the goal. Then it says, "Well, you reacted to this thought." It's not biased. "You reacted to this thought more than the belief I was holding, so that belief must not be important anymore. So it drops it."
Christine: It's like a malleable computer.
Brandon: Yes, it is. It's a programmable (all computers are programmable) computer. [laughs]
Christine: That's sentient.
Brandon: Yes, sort of.
Christine: We are.
Brandon: You're the one controlling it.
Brandon: That is the process of creation. It's very simple, yet very difficult. Everyone knows who has been through this process, those beliefs...
Christine: They get you.
The Subconscious Will Generate the “How”
Brandon: Yes, they're really convincing and persuasive. It's hard. It's really hard, but that's the process. As you choose the belief over and over and over again, then the subconscious mind gets the point. It starts to drop the other beliefs that are getting in the way. It starts to generate a pathway to the goal. That's the important part.
Your job is to decide on the goal and then to feel the endpoint, the end of the journey. You're deciding on a goal in the beginning, and you're feeling what you'll feel in the end when you have it. The other stuff in the middle is all subconscious. You don't do any of that. Yes, you might be inspired to act. That's great. But you don't seek those out. That's almost mini-goals in themselves, because you'll know exactly what to do. Each of those will bring you closer to your goal in a very real, definable way. You don't seek those out. You just let your subconscious motivate you to the right actions.
But you set the vision. You start the path. You feel the end of the path (what the goal will feel like when you have it). The way there--that's the subconscious mind's job. You can't do that. That's not your job. You don't know the best way there. If you say, "I want $50,000," and you say, "I don't know how I'm going to do it. I can't see a way," that doesn't matter. You decide what you want. That's all that matters. In my post today, I had you ask the question, "What is it I want?" That's what you ask. What is it I want? That's what matters. That's the beginning and the end of it. Once you decide that and you feel it and you choose it and you really believe it, the subconscious mind will move mountains to get you there. It will.
Justin: You start with the end in mind, and you allow your subconscious to get you there.
Brandon: Right. It's like, you're in the beginning where you are now, and you want to acknowledge that. You're also at the end within yourself. You've got to hold the end in mind. The stuff in the middle--that's where the magic happens because the subconscious mind will generate the pathway. It's always been amazing to me. I've seen it happen over and over and over again. I can rarely predict what it's going to do, very rarely. Sometimes it's pretty obvious, but I can rarely predict what it's going to do. But it will generate that pathway.
Justin: When you start acting, don't worry about whether the actions are right or not. Just act. If you get stopped or it doesn't seem to work out right away, don't worry about it. Just stop, reset, reload. Sometimes, you just have to repeat the same actions because you had to move stuff out of the way. Sometimes you're going to do totally different actions. Don't worry about the actions. If you have to ask whether it's inspired, that is not inspiration. You might go the wrong way, but that is okay because then you know that way is blocked. That means I checked early so I didn't have to worry about if I missed something later. Don't even worry about it. Just follow the energy line.
Brandon: Right. It will tell you exactly what to do. It will bring up opportunities. The thing to understand is that the subconscious mind will generate the path of least resistance. For example, if you want to start making more money, theoretically speaking you could get a large check in the mail because someone randomly got the motivation to send you a check. That could probably happen. Generally, it's not going to, because how many of us really believe that could happen? It's going to choose the path of least resistance. It doesn't mean it's a bad path. It's just the path of least resistance.
I always give the example of when I first started Co-Creation Coaching, I started to try to get more money using the law of attraction. At first, I was really self-conscious because almost all of it came through Christine. I was like, "What am I doing wrong? I want to have some of it, too." [laughs] I'm manifesting, but it's all coming through her. That was the path of least resistance. I just wasn't open. That door wasn't open to allow it to come through different ways. Once the door was open, then it did come. With the SSI thing, the door was open. I didn't know I'd get a job. That was the last thing on my mind. It just sort of happened, somehow, the path of least resistance. I must have really reduced that resistance. I used to have a lot of resistance to it. It will find the easiest, best path. It's not always the path you'd prefer. That path might not be open to you because of resistance and whatnot.
Justin: Any number of reasons.
Brandon: Right. When you ask for more money or choose to have more money, it could come through a promotion. It could come through an inheritance. It could come through a lottery win. It could come through any number of means, but your subconscious mind will find the easiest, fastest way of getting there. That's not really your concern. It will generate that path. It's always going to be the path of least resistance, just like a river flowing. When a new river is forming, it's going to flow down the slope in the path of least resistance and carve out the riverbed. It's going to go in the way that is least resistant to it. Energy will always flow in the path of least resistance, just like in a lightning strike and they say not to touch metal or stand under a large tree. The path of least resistance for lightning is the tall objects.
Justin: Do not fly a kite in the storm
Christine: Then they make canes out of aluminum.
Brandon: I know. Energy's always going to follow the path of least resistance. You start it. You hold the end of it. The middle is just going to get done. I promise. I guarantee it. You don't have to do that part. You can't do that part. It's not your job to do that part.
Christine: Our minds aren't big enough to understand.
Brandon: Our jobs are so simple. You decide what you want. That's the beginning. You feel what you want. That's the end. You choose it to confirm and set your will in motion. The subconscious and the universe--whatever you want to call the thing--does all the rest. It's really simple. We overcomplicate it. That's the creative process.
Practically speaking, the creative process: You sit down for 5 minutes. You visualize, you affirm--I don't really care what you do. Whatever you have to do to feel the energy or feel the feeling of having the goal at the end. Visualize, affirm, journal. Journaling's a great method. Whatever you want to do, I don't really care. You do it. A ritual, whatever.
You do it. That's going to get you the feeling. You hold it for a few minutes. Any resistance that comes up, you let it go. That's it. You want to purify that feeling.
How to Make the Feeling Pure
Brandon: Here's really what I want to talk about, one of the big things I want to mention today. When you start feeling the endpoint of your goal, it's not going to be 100% pure. What I mean by that is it's going to be mixed with resistance. That's okay. Don't force it. It might be the strongest in the beginning. It's going to be mixed with fear or whatever.
Here's what you do. This is where mindfulness comes in. We'll also talk about the reality control room later on. What you do, basically, is find that seed. It's like finding a signal in static. Find that seed. Hold on to that feeling, no matter how little it is or how mixed with other emotions it is. Find it and focus on that vibrational signature. Not in a strong way. You don't have to force it. Just focus on it. Let that be in your focus.
All the other stuff, which is resistance, you just don't react to. Every time the subconscious says, "Yeah, but what about this?" you say, "I'm sitting here with the seed of my goal." "But what about this?" "I'm still sitting here with this feeling." No matter how small that feeling is at first (the bigger the goal, the less you'll be able to access that feeling). When it's really big, you can't get it at all. You focus on that feeling, the vibrational signature, the seed, the goal. You sit with that. Everything else is just noise. You just let it go. You don't jump from that feeling over to this other thought of fear. You don't do that. You just sit here with the feeling.
What happens is, because you're focusing on the feeling, everything else is going to die away. Eventually, what will be left is just 100% of the feeling. You might start with 10%, but as you focus on it and the subconscious mind hits you with fear after fear after fear and you don't waver. (Sure, you might do so for a second, but you just come back to the feeling.) You focus on the feeling. The other stuff, because you're not feeding it focus or emotion, just falls away.
This is the most important thing that I want to discuss. A lot of times when I say "mindfulness," I'm talking about watching the negative feelings. I don't want you to give any focus whatsoever to the negative feelings or negative thoughts. If they're really powerful, sometimes you have to pause a second and say, "Hey, what's up? I see you." But all I want you to do is just focus on that vibrational signature. The rest will take care of itself. If you're focusing in any way on those negative thoughts, in some way you're validating them. I'm not saying to be afraid of them.
This is directly from my experience. What I used to do is take the goal, feel the feeling, then a resistant thought would come up. I would drop the goal, let the thought flow through, go back to the goal. More resistance would come up. The resistance would never stop because I would keep dropping the goal and going back to the resistance. I hope I'm explaining this well. I know it's a little bit complicated.
Basically, what you're doing is holding on to the feeling of your goal. (This is just in your 5-minute visualization or whatever.) You're holding on to that feeling even if it's 10% or 5% and focusing on that, keeping that in your sights. Everything else is just noise. The better you can do that, the faster that feeling will grow until it's 100% of your consciousness. That's your goal. Your ideal goal with any creative session is to have that feeling get to 100%. That doesn't mean you're done. That just means for now, your subconscious is done bringing up stuff.
That's your goal in any creation session. It might not always get there, and that's okay. As long as it's growing, that's the good news. Let's say I want $50,000. I feel 15%. I start getting fears of how I'm going to get there. I have no way to get there. I don't want to work more hours, whatever. I just keep focusing on what having $50,000 would feel like. What would it feel like if I had that? I don't push away the thoughts. They're just irrelevant to me. I don't even look at them. I just keep focusing on that $50,000 and go deeper into that feeling until it's 70, 80, 90% of my awareness. Then 100%, hopefully. Then I drop it and go back to the zero state.
That is the creation process in a nutshell. We're sort of getting into the reality control room, but not entirely yet. We'll get into that in a little bit. That's the whole thing. I hope I explained that well. It's very iffy because when I would say, "Just witness the thoughts; just let them go by," people would drop the goal, focus on the negative thought, try not to react to it. It just wouldn't really do it. I did a lot of experimentation with this where I would do both ways. The way of just holding on to the goal and letting the negative stuff be irrelevant as best as you can was the fastest way of manifesting that I found.
Justin: Just let it flow around you. I always thought of it as letting it flow around you as the sea or as water around a rock. The rock is you and you're focusing on the thought.
The Debugging Part of the Process
Brandon: That's the creation process. The debugging process I'll cover quickly. It's really just more of the same. What you're going to have is throughout the day, don't try to feel immensely good. Don't try to do that. Just try not to feel miserable. [laughs] If negative thoughts come up, do the same sort of thing where they're just irrelevant. Hold on to the feeling--not the goal feeling, necessarily--just, "I want to be happy right now." If you get hit with intense resistance, enter the zero state, let the thoughts flow over you. Let them go. Go back into the zero state. That's it. The subconscious mind will bring up more stuff later, probably. The debugging process is really just more of the same of how you're letting those negative thoughts go.
Justin: You're saying don't necessarily focus on the goal. You want to just focus on having a higher vibration, being happy.
Brandon: Right. A good feeling, a peaceful feeling.
Justin: There's your happy feeling, folks. Right there. That was it.
Brandon: It doesn't have to be joy. It doesn't have to be ecstasy.
Christine: Just have a good day.
Brandon: I just want to be content right now. These thoughts are trying to take that from me, so I'm just going to focus on peace and let the rest go.
Christine: That's easier said than done, but it can be done.
Brandon: Yes, I know.
Justin: Yes, but you can do it.
Brandon: Sometimes you've got to lock down completely and do a full meditation and breathe and just let it flow over you and whatnot. Whatever you have to do, you have to do.
Justin: I've found sometimes in public, especially at work, you can't always do that. You've got to lock down the fort. Let the thoughts batter at you for a bit. Then when you get to a spot, like I've gone outside or someplace and done that. Sometimes you just have to push them back until you can clear some space. Then you go to a spot and do all that. Don't be afraid to do it.
Brandon: That's debugging. The whole thing is really debugging because you're always homing in on that vibrational signature, trying to get it to 100%, especially in the creation sessions. But in the debugging process throughout the rest of your day, when negative thoughts come up, just don't engage. Don't engage them. You can't fight them. That just makes them stronger. Just let them be. Let them do their thing.
Mindfulness is really the name of the game here. Mindfulness is such a useful, versatile tool that is way underestimated and undervalued. Be mindful of the thoughts. Just hold on to your zero state, your peaceful state, and that's it. As you do that, the subconscious mind will start to get the hint. "Oh, wait. I've hit him with all I have, with all these beliefs that I thought were important, but you're not reacting. I guess they're not so important." They get weaker and weaker and weaker. That's really how it all works.
What you're doing, basically, is as you focus on the goal again and again and again and you get to 100% or close to it in your creation sessions, you're building a neural pathway to your goal. I talked about this in the support call #36 a little bit. I think it was #36. You're building a pathway to your goal. A neural pathway in your brain. You're teaching yourself how to feel the goal and how to think about the goal. Once that's done, then that will be reflected on the outside. The subconscious mind will create a pathway, like I described earlier. Every time you do that, you're making that neural pathway a little bit stronger, a little bit stronger, a little bit stronger. The subconscious mind starts to get used to the idea. "Okay, maybe it's not so bad."
Your creation sessions are doing 2 things. #1, they are getting rid of that resistance that the subconscious mind is holding. #2, they are creating a neural pathway to the goal, teaching yourself how to think $50,000. You have to think $50,000 before you can live or have $50,000. Just taking that example. Whatever your goal is. You have to think it and feel it before you can have it. Just keep that in mind. You have to build that neural pathway before you can actually have it on the outside. That's what your creation sessions are doing.
The debugging is really just, as the resistance comes up, you let it go. You're doing more of the same as the first point. It's just letting the subconscious know these beliefs aren't important anymore. I get to choose how I feel. Don't let this take over your life. It's just a few minutes a day, and then if negative thoughts come up throughout the day, great. Just drop them. Good.
People get frustrated with resistance, but resistance is what's blocking you from your goal. It's actually good when it comes out because it means that you're getting there, that you're on the right path. If you weren't on the right path, that resistance wouldn't have come up. It means that you're getting there, getting somewhere. When you let it go, it's such a great feeling. When you let it go, then it's like you're that much closer. Resistance is actually a good thing. It's not bad. It doesn't mean you've failed. It doesn't mean anything. It's a good thing. It's necessary so that you can struggle against that, have that tension, let it go, and be that much closer to your goal. Now, I'm going to talk about...[drumroll sound effect]
The Reality Control Room
Christine: The reality control room.
Brandon: [laughs] How'd you know?
Christine: I can read your mind.
Brandon: The reality control room. I described it a little bit before when I was describing the creation process. That's that. What this is is really a way of focusing in on your goal and letting go of resistance at the same time. It's deceptively simple, but it's very powerful. It's really worked well for me. I introduced earlier the idea of the seed of your goal. This is what you're going to need. I introduced that idea of the seed, and I introduced the idea that when you hold a thought or a seed of energy, your subconscious mind tries to synch up with it. It tries to attune itself to it energetically. Those two ideas are the basis of the reality control room.
Essentially, what you're doing is holding that seed and letting the subconscious mind make several attempts at synching up with it. As you hold that seed, it's going to try to synch up with that energy. The first attempt is going to fail because it can't get there, if it's a next level goal. With each attempt, you teach it what to do by (guess) not reacting to it. You say try again. Well, not literally say it. I guess you could. Try again. It tries again. Another thought comes up, another attempt to synch up with the seed. It's another failure. Not reacting, not taking the bait. Try again. As you do it, eventually you're going to get a positive thought about your goal.
Let me give you an example. I'll take this $50,000 example because I'm going to run to the end with it. [laughs] Let's say I'm feeling that vibrational signature. Let's say I have 25% of it. I really love that goal. It's awesome. That's my seed. I hold it. As I hold it, the subconscious mind says something like, "I don't want to get promoted, though, because I don't want to have the responsibilities of the manager." That's a negative thought.
You say, "Nice try. Not going with it. Just going to hold this seed and not take the bait of the other one." That gets weaker because you rejected it. What you could do is a little bit of NLP if you want to. Step out of the negative thought. Make it smaller in your mind if it's an image, whatever you want to do. If the thought's an image in your mind (a negative thought), I imagine it as minimizing the window and throwing it out into space. It's like, "No, I don't want that thought." If it's an audible thought, just imagine it floating away and getting farther and farther away and softer and softer. If it's a feeling, imagine it dispersing and not being important to you. Those are some simple NLP techniques. I discussed a lot more about NLP in the first "The Art of Reality Creation." Those are some basic ways of doing that.
You hold on to the thought of $50,000 a year. Great. It says, "I don't know. I don't want to have those responsibilities." You don't argue with it. Do not argue with it. It won't work. You can't argue with it. Don't say, "Yeah, well, I'm sure there are other ways," or "It's not as bad as it seems." The subconscious mind doesn't care what you think about it. It really doesn't. It's bringing up objections that are in alignment with your current subconscious structures.
What you do is ignore it. Or, if you need to, do the NLP stuff (minimize it, throw it out to space). You're still holding on to the seed. You're holding on to that for a few seconds, and then another thought comes up. "It's too hard to make that amount of money. I can't do it." Do the same thing. Minimize that, throw it out to space, whatever. Christine's miming it. [laughs]
Brandon: It's all right. Ignore the thought, minimize it, throw it out, whatever you want to do. You can even visualize whatever you want. Imagine crumpling up a piece of paper and throwing it away. Whatever you want to do with it is fine. The wind takes it away, whatever. You bury it. I don't care. Then, you keep holding the seed.
Then a thought comes up. It could be something really simple like, "That would be really cool, to make that much." Okay, now what you do is say yes to that thought. You make it bigger if it's an image. Make it louder if it's an audio thing. Maximize the feeling. Imagine turning up the dial to 10 or something. Make that feeling stronger. Whatever it is, say yes to that thought. Make it bigger. Make it more bold. Step into it. Yes, it would be really cool to make $50,000 a year. Step into it. Then go back to the seed.
Generally, when you get the positive thought, the seed's going to grow. It's going to be maybe 35% or 40% or whatever. Maybe you get another negative thought. That's okay. You do the same thing: minimize it, throw it away, or just ignore it.
Basically, what you're doing is in real time training your subconscious mind how you want to think. When it gives you something you don't like, you say, "No, I don't want that. Cut that out. Cut it." And it goes. When it gives you something you want, you say, "Yes, I want that." You make it bigger and bolder. You keep it. You step into it. You go deeper into it. You're teaching your subconscious mind through your emotions how to think about this goal.
When you have those positive thoughts, really, really feel those emotions. Turn them up to 100%. 1000%. Turn them up. Really feel those emotions. Don't force it, but turn them up. When you get a negative thought (which you will), just let it go off into space.
That's the reality control room. I call it that because it's your editing space. This is where you edit your subconscious mind's thoughts about your goal. You say, "Okay, how do I feel about making $50,000 a year? Well, I have these negative thoughts. That's fine. I'm going to toss that away. But then I have this positive thought. Oh, look, that's awesome! I keep that. I step into it."
I imagine it like when people take a whole ton of photos, and they go through them really fast. "Keep that. Oh, I don't like that one. Yes, keep that one. Keep that one. No, I don't like that one." You're very fast-paced in deciding what to keep and what to toss away. You're just saying, "Yes, I want this photo. I don't want that photo. I want this photo." That's what it reminds me of. You have this slide of images going by in your mind, and you're deciding which ones you want to keep and which ones you don't. That's how the reality control room works.
Essentially, you are taking the seed (the vibrational signature, the feeling of having it) of your goal and focusing on it. Every time you focus on it, your subconscious mind tries to synch up with it. It's going to bring up a thought. It could be a negative thought or a positive thought. It could be slightly negative, slightly positive, very negative, or very positive. If it's a negative one, you just discard it.
Justin: Discard it or allow it to dissipate. Do any number of things.
Brandon: Exactly. Just let it go. Minimize it. You're keeping the seed. It brings up another thought. That one could be positive. You say yes to it. As you do that, it's very powerful in a very short amount of time. That feeling is going to be growing and growing and growing. You're basically very quickly and efficiently teaching your subconscious mind how to think about this goal.
That is what I've been using for manifesting. It's been very, very powerful and very effective when working towards any goal. You really have to be choosy with your thoughts. If you don't like the thought, don't feel obligated to keep it. It's like one of those pictures. Just don't keep the picture. If you don't like it, delete it. Do you ever go through your phone and just delete pictures you don't like? It's like that. Just delete it. Delete that thought. Don't fight it. Don't resist it. Delete it. Let it go. Come back to your feeling. That's your seed.
Why I say it's a seed is because it's generating thoughts. Some thoughts you'll like, and some thoughts you won't. The thoughts you like, you emphasize. The thoughts you don't, you just delete. You let them go. As you do that, the subconscious structures are getting generated. They're forming into more of what you want very, very quickly. I think this is why I've gotten really, really quick results lately. This process, on a very raw, low level, interacts with the subconscious mind. It speaks the language of the subconscious and tells it exactly how it should be thinking. That is how this basically works. Does it make sense how I'm explaining it? I know it's a little bit of NLP. What did you say, Justin?
Justin: That works really well. It makes sense to me. That's actually kind of how I use my process. Maybe not exactly like that. I always tried to keep as much focus on the goal as I could. I didn't quite interact as much with the negative parts of the energy, per se. I will definitely focus more on that. I usually use straight mindfulness, but I kind of like also tossing the thoughts away. Really being choosy about the negative thoughts and positive thoughts. I actually am going to try parse the thoughts out rather than just go into the flow and the energy and having the positive going and the negatives parse them out. I'm going to actually choose the positives more. I like that.
Brandon: It's just being very picky about your thoughts. As you do that, you're training your subconscious mind. You're programming it. It's literally like opening up a shell and programming. [laughs]
Justin: That's really neat, that you actually choose the thoughts. I'm going to be more choosy about it like a programmer.
Brandon: Exactly. It's like a programmer deletes a line of code you don't like or fix it. Add a new one, whatever. It's the reality control room because you're controlling your reality through this very directly, by manipulating how your subconscious mind structures it, how it thinks about it. Then that will show up on the outside.
Simple and Effective
Brandon: In the first course, we went through a ton of detail. That's great. If you want detail, go back to that course. But it's sort of superfluous, too. I'm just trying to simplify it here. Really, all you need is this. The creation process--that few minutes a day when you are focusing on your goal--is just the process of being really choosy about your thoughts. Going down and holding that seed or vibrational signature. Letting the subconscious mind try to synch up with it. Letting it fail. Letting go of the negative thought that comes up. Deleting it. Throwing it away. You still hold the seed, so it tries again and tries again and tries again. Then you get a thought you like, and you say yes.
That's how I got the SSI thing. I could not imagine it at first. I held the seed and got maybe 2%. I just held what I had. I got a whole bunch of negative thoughts. "How am I going to do that? The business can't grow that much." (I didn't know anything about a job yet.) "The business can't grow that much that quickly. What am I going to do? I can't do it." Deleted all those. Then a thought came up. "Wouldn't that be nice? Wouldn't that be freeing to be off of SSI?" And I said yes to that thought. It got a bit bigger. That really kicked off the momentum. It's very, very powerful.
You're just being really picky about your thoughts and saying yes to the ones that support what you want and saying no (and when I say "Say no" I'm not saying fight it, I'm just saying say no to it by not giving it focus) to the ones you don't like. That's the creative process. That seed grows. Hopefully, within a session, it gets to 100%. If it doesn't, that's okay. As long as it grows. As long as you get more of it by the end, that's great. That means you've made progress. Then, throughout the day, if stuff comes up, you say, "Okay, I see you, thoughts, but I'm not going to take the bait. I'm not going to take it." You can do this anytime, but the creative process is a deeper, more direct way. If negative thoughts come up throughout the day, you can say, "No, I'm not doing that." You can also minimize those or throw those away or just be mindful of them and let them go.
Justin: Become the sky like you said. I like that one. Let them flow right through you.
Brandon: That's the debugging. It all merges in together. It's a very simple process. I'm trying to simplify all this because you don't need a lot of complex stuff. If you want to do ritual, do ritual. If you want to do visualization, do visualization. If you want to journal, then journal. This is magic. You are at the start. You are holding the end of the path by feeling and emotion. The rest will fill in with the subconscious mind. That is really how all this works.
People will say, "What about resistance?" Again, I'm not saying this is easy. Use mindfulness. Allow or minimize those thoughts. Manipulate them with NLP. That's all it is. It does take work. I know it's easier said than done. I get that. Just practice. This is the way to the fastest manifestations you could possibly have because you're directly interacting with (I guess you could say....My job is interfering) the "source code" of your reality. [laughs] You're directly interacting with it and changing it and making improvements to it. That's what you're doing. Simple, but it's also kind of difficult until you get used to it. I guarantee you, if you follow this process, you'll have very, very fast manifestations if you hold to it truly and don't take the bait of those negative thoughts.
Justin: The only thing I was curious about is....We talked about ritual a little bit. If you build up all that power in a ritual, how many or how often do you work with the energy on the small law of attraction scale?
Brandon: If you do a ritual, do it once every few weeks. See how it feels, really. If you want to do it every day of that week still, fine. If you just want to check up on the energy a little bit and wait a few days, that's okay, too. Whatever you want to do is fine. Feel out the energy is really the big thing. It will make a huge amount of progress very quickly. If you want to wait a few days (3 days later, 4 days later) and check in with the visualization and see if it's any easier, whatever. It's fine.
Instead of Constantly Seeking, Apply What You Have
Brandon: That's the process. It's very simple. Don't overcomplicate this stuff. It's very simple. It just requires practice. I remember what my instructor from the "Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction" course told us: You can go and read a million different books, but it's not going to help you any more than just applying the stuff you have. Don't try to learn a whole bunch of different stuff or take a bunch of different courses. Just apply it. This is the stuff you need.
Christine: It's like you're trying to find what you want to hear instead of....What fits right? Guess what, people. You're going to be uncomfortable, so just suck it up and do it.
Brandon: Right. Just practice it. I'm not saying it's super easy, but this is the direct way.
Christine: No, it can be painful. But you don't want light and fluffy.
Justin: This is straight up how to do it.
Brandon: Exactly. Don't waste time. If you want to out of curiosity, but a lot of people just go from book to book to book to book.
Justin: Yes, you don't need to do that.
Brandon: Site to site to site. Or course to course to course.
Christine: It's right in front of your face.
Brandon: Just apply the method. I promise it will work. Ask questions if you have them. You have lifetime access to this course, so ask questions in the comments anytime. Or email me if you want to. I prefer comments if it's public, but if it's personal, then whatever. You have access to this, so use it. If you have questions, ask. I think that does actually complete the class. I don't want to overcomplicate things. I had a lot of other ideas for things I could do, but this is just very simple. This is it.
Christine: Simple is better. Keep it simple, stupid. Have you ever heard that?
Justin: You can read all these other books. You get all these other techniques, and then they get blended together. My thing is, pick one style and work with it. See if it works for you. This is a great style. It's simple. That's why I stuck with Wayne Dyer for a while. That worked. You find something that works. This actually is straight up how the energy works. Straight up. What you all just heard.
Brandon: I hope that makes sense to everyone. If you have questions, just let me know. Comment on the class. Otherwise, I hope that this helps everyone and that you get to apply it. I want to hear about your successes or struggles or whatever you have. Hopefully you have a lot of successes.
Christine: Yes. Oh, you will.
Justin: Yes, you will.
Brandon: [laughs] Definitely if you apply it, you'll have the successes. It's just about applying it. [laughs]
Christine: That's the hard part.
Brandon: That's it. Thanks, everyone, for joining us. Hopefully we'll see you in the comments. Bye, everyone.
Christine: Have a great one. Bye!
