Letters From A Better Me author Rachael Wolff has written a new blog post on the power of repetition, take a look.
Repetition reinforces the circuits in your brain and forms more neural connections so that in your weakest hour, you don’t talk yourself out of greatness.Dr. Joe Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself
I’m so grateful I understand the power of repetition—the good, the bad, and the ugly. My life has blessed me in so many ways. Some of my ugliest experiences helped to guide me on paths to knowledge and understanding of how the human mind works. I’ve learned how repetition keeps us prisoner, and how it sets us free. I love learning. So much of the wisdom I’ve passed on is through thirty plus years of reading and studying this particular area. With tons of new brain research, it’s taken concepts I’ve learned over the years and explained the why behind them. Dr. Joe Dispenza explains why he uses repetition in his book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, “Repetition reinforces the circuits in your brain and forms more neural connections so the in you weakest hour, you don’t talk yourself out of greatness.” That’s used like I use it in my “Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace” series. You will hear me repeat things over and over to help myself and readers to slow down and make sure we are aligning with the energy we actually WANT to be aligning with.
Then there is the bad, I opened my eyes to this in a media and society class, where I learned the concept of, “cradle to the grave marketing” amongst other tactics. This is how we are fed repeated messages of we aren’t enough without some material good or service. We aren’t enough unless we invest our money here… Your life would be so much better if… This is why Winnie the Pooh and McDonalds have the same colors. There are no accidents in marketing. Marketing uses psychology to get us to buy products and services. When we showed the media that we loved gossip over news (based on what sold in the market), we transformed news into gossip and facts became less important. People are more likely to believe gossip, because we’ve been trained to live in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. The constant repetition keeps us in the energy fear, lack, and separation if we BLINDLY keep following the cycle. Now, this is bad and we are seeing this explode in 2020. This can become a good thing when we open our eyes to break the cycle by not contributing. When we create new cycles coming from the place of love, abundance, and peace, the repetition opens so many amazing doors.
Now for the ugly. I’m grateful I understand the psychology of the ugly, because I see what happens when people don’t (including my 10 years of abuse). I don’t blame the people who fall victim to the ugly. I don’t even blame the sick individuals who are brought to teach us about the ugly.This doesn’t mean I don’t hold them responsible, but the only person we are responsible and accountable for is ourselves. So if I’ve fallen into a cycle of contributing to their behavior, I need to be responsible and accountable for my choices so that I can change them. When I blame, I take away my power to change the things that keep ME prisoner. This is why it is SO important to be conscious of the powers of repetition. There are humans with mental illnesses such as narcissistic personality disorder (narcissist) and antisocial personality disorder (sociopath), amongst others who aren’t capable of thinking in a way that a healthy mind thinks.
I spent years studying these two disorders, and there are patterns of behavior they use repeatedly to lure in victims and actually get people to turn on the victims of their abuse, only to abuse them more.It is scary just how repetitive and similar the messages are from individual to individual. I’ve read books that quoted the same toxic repetitive messages that were spoon-fed to me. They need people to attach to the cycle of fear, lack, and separation to align with them. Blaming others is one of their favorite tools to get people aligned with them (I write about this in other blogs). With both disorders, they are not able to to be accountable and take personal responsibility. Someone else always made them…
How this one gets ugly is when people are attached to fear, lack, and separation they can become unconsciously apart of the cycle of abuse. This isn’t about where someone else is putting their energy, it’s about where we are CHOOSING to put ours. If we fall into doing the same behaviors we see in the person we don’t like or respect, we are still contributing to the energy that strengthens what a mentally unhealthy individual is trying to do. This happens in individual abusive relationships (romantic, familial, working, acquaintance) and on societal levels. Being AWARE of repetitions that feed the cycles of fear, lack, and separation are essential if we want to break out of that energy, otherwise we become apart of it. If I slip, I can quickly move into gratitude for the awareness of slipping.
How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World
THE EMPOWERED WOMAN follows the belief system that is best explained in a quote by Byron Katie: “The most attractive thing about the Buddha was that he saved one person: himself. That’s all he needed to save; when he saved himself, he saved the whole world.”
The letters work in different ways depending on the chapter and part of the book.
