"Practice perseverance for a while. You may be quite surprised
at your successes."
"Being attentive to self is not total selfishness. Self-respect
is the ultimate emotional goal in life."
As mentioned in the opening chapter, mankind
has been blessed with the ability to act upon his feelings. All feelings
are called emotions. Emotions control every facet of our life, including;
decision making, objective and subjective thinking; creativity, but just
as paramount our interactions with other individuals.
All interactions affect us immensely. Every second of the day we all experience
a combination of emotions; both positive and negative. The emotions we
experience can be of our own doing or can result from manipulation by others.
Although we human beings should be in a position to control our personal
emotions there are times when that is not the case. One of the causes is
because we are subject to subliminal thought suggestions and verbal barrages
from external forces. External forces are the result of our personal daily
interactions with others.
Each day we communicate with others at multiple levels of conversation.
Some levels of conversation take place at a conscious level or actual verbal
communication with others, while unbeknownst by some, the majority of these
conversations take place solely through thought between two humans.
How many times have we started our day feeling rejuvenated, happy and excited
about the possibilities, yet by the end of the day, although there have
not been any personal conflicts, we find ourselves totally drained, feeling
virtually every negative emotion possible? Without realizing it we have
been subjected to the negative emotions of others.
Negative emotions can be passed to us by listening to the problems of another
or just being in the presence of those who are experiencing personal traumas.
External emotions are picked up by our subconscious minds and are stored
for future reference, yet if we are not aware of this fact we may feel
the emotional disturbances are our own making.
A number of research projects into the workings of the mind are presently
being carried on at various universities and research centers. They are
looking into exactly how mankind is contaminated by others. Specifically,
educational classes are being conducted worldwide to prove once and for
all that all thought is measurable and that thought is the basis to all
forms of reality. Not only are respected researchers and academics trying
to prove conclusively how susceptible we are to subliminal data, but they
are also compiling data on how to be aware when this thought data is being
The idea of transference has been known for some time. Psychologists and
psychiatrists have recognized during counselling sessions some patients
will unknowingly pick up the thoughts and feelings such as affection of
the counsellor. As the patient feels the thought transferences emanating
from the counsellor, the patients perceive thoughts which do not exist.
The difficulty that the patient experiences as thought transferences occur
is that normally the patient is not aware that their emotions are involved
or exactly which emotions are governing their feelings at the exact moment
in time when the thought transference takes place.
Bringing the idea of thought transference a step further; it is readily
known subliminal messages have been used in advertising methods for quite
some time. Although some messages are audio (can be heard) and in some
instances are visual (can be seen), another form of a subliminal message
is through the subconscious mind which has the ability to project thought
wave-lengths with no limitations to time or distance. What we think and
picture in the privacy of our own minds is not as private as we may wish
Two of the most publicized individuals utilizing mental communication transfer
imagery and sound are the entertainment mentalists, Kreskin and Reveen.
Both Kreskin and Reveen have perfected their ability to such an extent
that they can subliminally change the reality of their subjects to entertain
their audiences. Reveen calls this process post-hypnotic suggestion, while
Kreskin bluntly calls his technique mind-reading.
Both Kreskin and Reeven are correct. The ability to read another's mind
has existed for centuries. Rasputin, Catherine the Great, of Russia, sole
psychic advisor, was noted for his ability to read the future and to mesmerize
his victims. Mesmer, the pioneer of hypnosis could not thoroughly explain
his discovery of memorization. Post-hypnotic suggestions which were later
discovered by modern day psychiatrists are solely a form of subliminal
interjection of thought.
Although thought transference may be endlessly debated, we all must realize
it does exist and know that thought, image and feeling transferences are
possible. It is to our advantage to come to a conclusion of how and why
the thought, image and feeling transferences take place and then be able
to protect ourselves from these interferences. New data is being published
daily explaining the thought transference process, but most researchers
still believe that subjects cannot be made to do something which they do
not wish to do. This is a fallacy. It has been concluded that indeed we
can be made to do things through thought transference which we would not
normally consider. Over the last few years, defense attorneys have used
thought transference as a means of defending their clients charged with
murder offences and have been quite successful. A recent criminal case
involved a young man who supposedly had listened to a heavy-metal musical
group who advocated killing a police officer in one of their songs. After
he had repeatedly listened to the song, he, under the influence of the
groups message, shot a police officer. The jury acquitted the young man
because they concluded that he was influenced by the groups music. It was
ruled that the message was a "psychic bombardment" intentionally hidden
in the music.
Accepting the fact that we are subject to psychic bombardment, the next
stage is to learn how to stop all negative information from entering our
In the next chapter we will receive an overview of the precise emotions
to which we are subject to in life. Remember not all emotions which affect
our life are inflicted from outside sources. A majority of the time we
inflict emotions on ourselves which control and govern our life. It is
said that we seek problems to obtain the gifts they have for us. To the
aforementioned it should be added, "Yes, it is necessary to seek out and
deal with problems, but only problems of our own making". Yet the moral
to seeking out problems so that we may be taught a lesson is that we should
remember that although we all are forced to deal with other people's problems
daily, other people's problems may have nothing to do with our beliefs
Sometimes another's problem will give us the opportunity to experience
the atmosphere of the problem first-hand without actually having to partake
in the actual experience. Being forced to comment on another's problem
or making a decision for the other person about their external problems
will not bear the fruits we expect. The lessons of life eventually may
not be as trivial to us as we may believe. In some instances another's
problems may not be as clear or as defined as they may suspect. In a lot
of cases the problem will usually revolve around their personal negative
experiences and very rarely their positive ones. Another perspective or
point of view from another outside the realm of the problem sometimes may
rectify the problem or sometimes may give insight to the person having
the problem. The insight can then be utilized by the one experiencing the
problem and then give the problem solver astuteness to solve a potential
similar personal problem at a later date. The difficulty with interfering
in another's life is that the person who is trying to help will ultimately
retain the negative feelings of the one who was helped.
None the less some of us are still not perfect creatures of the universe
and therefore we have a tendency to slip into negative states of emotions
and create problems for ourselves and potentially for others. The possible
reason for negative occurrences happening may be that in a majority of
cases some of us are not aware of the emotions we are experiencing at the
time of either our personal disruptions or another's indecisions.
Remedying negative imperfections in ourselves is not too great a task as
long as we learn to admit what the pitfalls of interfering in another's
life are and try honestly to correct this imperfection. Honesty in emotions
is the prime requirement to offset the problem of being imperfect. As every
good general knows, discerning when to retreat is of vital importance.
Retreating is not defeat, but is a means of regrouping our forces to fight
another day, or in the context of all the enclosed learning material, making
a decision which assuredly is a corrective measure.
It has been said, "Placing our own emotions above those of others is selfishness."
Yet when some of us find ourselves struggling to make a decision we intuitively
reach a point where our personal feelings or emotions come first. Most
certainly believing our feelings and emotions come first is not selfishness
but survival; survival of the fittest, mentally and spiritually; moreover
Those who refuse to admit subliminal messages occur are normally the ones
who employ the thought transference process the most. Subliminal message
perusers believe they have power over others and in some cases they actually
do until their prey realize they are being emotionally controlled and burst
the controllers emotional bubble. No controller likes to have their bubble
burst especially when they are receiving the attention of others through
psychological traps they have set for their overly protective emotional
Recognizing the existence of those who are psychological piranha can prevent
us from being manipulated, taken advantage of or controlled. The psychological
piranha are not hard to find or see through. They are the ones who enjoy
relating all of their problems to all of those around them. Needless to
say if the story is good, some of us at times have a tendency to support
the psychological piranha¹s position which assuredly is being forced
upon us. Rarely do the majority of us substantiate a claim of remorse.
Some find it easier to listen intently to the story because in the majority
of cases we believe listening to negative circumstances may assist us in
recognizing that our problems are not as bad as they may seem. Yet by listening
to another's difficulties we are taking on the problems of others and eventually
become emotionally subject to procrastination when handling our own personal
The matrix of emotional manipulation and transference is the most common
form of advanced personal negativity. In the next chapter we will learn
to overcome the problem of not knowing how to remove ourselves from the
influence of others.
Before continuing, let us take a few moments and try to list as many of
the emotions, both positive and negative which we can. A simple hint to
help one at the present time is to know that there are only twenty-one
emotions. When the exercise was taught in past workshops, the average number
of emotions that were listed by the participants very rarely totalled more
than twelve. Once you have completed listing all the emotions you can think
of, keep the list and in the next chapter you will be able to confirm those
emotions you have listed and add the remainder omitted to your list.
