As human beings, we are born with a blank slate, and our subconscious mind is programmed through our experiences and interactions with the world around us. Between the ages of 0-7 years old, our subconscious mind is particularly susceptible to external influences and conditioning, which can shape our beliefs and values for the rest of our lives. The limiting beliefs and conditioning that occur during this time can lead to a host of adult problems later in life.
During this critical developmental stage, we are like sponges, absorbing everything around us without the filter of logic or reason. We learn how to behave, what to believe, and how to interact with the world based on our experiences and interactions with others. Our family, caregivers, and surroundings have a profound impact on our subconscious programming, shaping our beliefs about ourselves, the world, and our place in it.
Unfortunately, not all of the programming that occurs during this time is positive or empowering. Negative experiences, such as trauma, abuse, neglect, or lack of emotional support, can lead to limiting beliefs and conditioning that can cause problems later in life. These beliefs may manifest as self-doubt, fear, anxiety, low self-esteem, and negative self-talk, among other issues.
The good news is that the subconscious mind is malleable, and we can reprogram it with positive affirmations, visualization techniques, and other practices that promote positive self-talk and self-belief. By identifying the negative beliefs and conditioning that we received in childhood, we can begin to heal and create a more positive and empowering mindset.
The limiting beliefs and conditioning that occur during the formative years of 0-7 can have a profound impact on our adult lives. However, by identifying and reprogramming these negative beliefs and conditioning, we can overcome the challenges that hold us back and create a more fulfilling and positive life. As we become aware of the subconscious programming that shapes our beliefs and values, we can take steps to overcome the limitations and conditioning of our past and create a brighter future for ourselves.
