Your Habit Body; An Owner’s Manual
Bruce Lipton and others say the part of us exercising conscious waking choice, is only 5% - 10% of our psyche. This is us from the neck-up. Habit Body is a clearer, simpler, easier model of the 95% of our psyche outside of conscious, waking choice, us from the neck-down. More
Bruce Lipton and others say the part of us exercising conscious waking choice, is only 5% - 10% of our psyche. This is us from the neck-up.
Habit Body is a clearer, simpler, easier model of the 95% of our psyche outside of conscious, waking choice, us from the neck-down.
Q: What model did we use up to now?
A: We used the "iceberg" model of Freud, Jung and Steiner: 10% of an iceberg is visible above the waterline. That's conscious waking self. Some unknown fraction is perceived only dimly below the waterline but still visible A remaining large fraction, including the underside of the iceberg, is dark and completely unknown to us on the surface.
This remains an accurate metaphor. What it lacked was clear therapeutic direction. "Habit Body" connotes "habits." We all know, "I can change a habit, if I apply myself."
Find new language here, built on the Three Selves, to get at the other 95% of your psyche.
The Habit Body suggests something simple: we have habits on all five levels of our psyche:
- Physical, postural and eating habits,
- Imaginal habits including how we visualize, ambition and pretending,
- Emotional habits, what we feel and do not feel,
- Mental habits are Beliefs
- Favorite archetypes, fairy tales, memories, role models, internal scripts we follow unknowingly.
Add these together, it's our Habit Body.
This "map" gives much clearer direction for epigenetics, the latest word for Belief-Change-Work.
It's a much clearer model of our psyche than "subconscious" and "unconscious." Our Habit Body also overlaps 95% with our immune system.
Q: What's a habit?
A: A behavior conditioned to repeat. Please also consider habits as reactivity set on automatic, conditioned to repeat.
Your Habit Body reacts automatically unless you, as conscious self, intervenes. When it repeats our workable habits each morning when we wake up, it's our nearest and dearest friend. It records and remembers specific routines for us, so we don't have to re-learn how to tie our shoelaces every day anew.
Q: How come the one thing human beings do better than anything else is making the same mistake over and over and over again?
A: Our unworkable habits do not change by themselves. YOU, from the neck-up, the 5% to 10% that is conscious, waking choice, has to initiate, manage and make time for healthy change. This means correcting, redeeming, deleting, upleveling and upgrading old habits and beliefs no longer workable for you.
The first safe, reliable, cheap experimental method to locate, address, measure, assess and track change in our Habit Body only became available in 1990. This is self-testing (muscle testing) with 'God as your Partner.'
Q: What if I think muscle testing is a fraud?
A: Self-muscle-testing works primarily only in the domain of one person. No laws of hard science are being violated. Self-testing merely amplifies the testing of cell-level-intelligence our cells and small intestine villi are already doing 24/7.
