NEW SECOND EDITION COMING JUNE 2017
Best Practices in Energy Medicine Series #5
What's a habit? A behavior conditioned to repeat; also, reactivity set on automatic, conditioned to repeat.
We have many habits, both conscious and unconscious. We have so many, categories help: Physical habits, Imaginal habits, Emotional habits, Mental habits, and Mythological habits.
It's convenient to talk about the sum of all these habits as a Habit Body.
Sound like a lot to manage? Our Habit Body manages these automatically. It's our nearest and dearest friend. It records and remembers daily routines for us, so we don't have to re-learn routine behaviors every day anew. Habits are reactivity set on automatic, learned behaviors conditioned to repeat.
What's our job as Conscious Wakeful Self? You and I, we're the Habit Sequencers, the Behavior Schedulers, the Habit Managers and Superintendent of Behaviors. We edit the habits our Habit Body readies to play back moment to moment.
If all this is so, how come the thing human beings do better than anything else, is make the same mistake over and over and over again?
Bruce Lipton and others say only 5% of our psyche exercises conscious waking choice and decision-making. That's us from the neck-up.
Find new language here, built on the Three Selves, to get at the other 95% of your psyche, the Bigger You.
Within a modern study of the Habit Body are keys to practical epigenetics, better practices in belief change work. How? The Habit Body model gives much clearer therapeutic direction for navigating to and moderating-releasing unwanted habits on any level.
"Habit Body" is more user-friendly and can substitute for "subconscious" and "unconscious" in thousands of contexts.
