Exploring subconscious Bias?

.
.
Acceptance was difficult for me, arduous and prolonged.
.
.
My hidden biases from childhood brought emotional ambiguity.
.
.
During my childhood, anything short of perfection was labeled failure.
.
.
Using my focus to let go of thought and judgment, uncovered layer after layer of subconscious emotional criticism.
.
.
Feeling inferior, feeling unworthy persisted day after day.
.
.
I was searching for an external solution, to overcome unworthiness, to attain status and power, to give me relevance, self worth.
.
.
Affirmations of self worth felt like a lie when I recited them outloud.
.
.
My ego resisted, bringing negative emotions, trying to discourage me from letting go.
.
.
Life is a journey, fluid with new challenges, impacted by old habit.
.
.
Our subconscious bias does not reveal itself or integrate to present moment easily, quickly.
.
.
Do you notice subconscious bias in certain situations?

  1. I think I don’t take credit for anything. I have a subconscious belief that I don’t have any control over anything. If something good or bad happens, it is all by chance. I think it comes out of the traumas I’ve experienced, which were out of my control. I translated those events into something global that effects my view of myself in the greater world.

  2. We all do this to different degrees. Most of the control we think we exert gives us a false sense of security.

    We can believe there is no control and be happy. It takes not judging life as good or bad. It takes a centered, positive self image and daily practice letting go to accomplish this.

    Our self image, core self worth is the foundation we build our life around. It is the prism where all thought filters through.

    A damaged self image will read far more fear, feelings of helplessness, negativity and hopelessness.

    Try repeating affirmations out loud a couple of time a day combined with twenty minutes of mindfulness practice if you want to change that bad habit.
