Regular Ishta Spinal Touch can change your reality!
This isn't a metaphysical statement, rather a biomechanical one.
Let's look at how this works.
The term "events" is a technical term from the field of neurology. It refers
to a discrete bit of information which impinges on our nervous system in
some way. This can be via any of the five special senses; seeing, hearing,
touching, tasting and smelling. In fact you can simply describe them as what
is going on around us. It's important to realise that these events are neither
good nor bad in and of themselves, but rather it is our interpretation of
them which defines their relative merit.
Estimates vary widely as to how many of these events are happening at the
same time; anywhere from 2 million to 4 trillion per second. Yes every second
a huge amount of information is bombarding us, and we have to make sense
of all that. The latest figures suggest that we are consciously aware of
between 5 and 9 bits of information a second.
What happens to all the rest?
The vast majority of all the information which we receive from our environment
is filtered out by the unconscious mind. What this means is that we are never
really sure what is happening at any given time. That is why two people can
have wildly differing memories of the same event as each person's filtering
mechanism is unique.
How the filtering works.
There are three broad ways that the filtering takes place.
That which has no importance to us is deleted. For instance you probably
aren't aware of the feel of your clothes on your skin as you read this. It's
why we don't hear a ticking clock but notice when it stops.
Our beliefs are very much tied up with this too. There is a famous story
about Pacific islanders who literally couldn't see the explorers ships when
they were first 'discovered' by western culture and paddled their canoes
into them. Nothing like large sailing ships existed in their belief systems
so they couldn't see them. It's not so much a case of seeing is believing
but rather believing is seeing!
We all intuitively know this to be true as we all would rather not see things
which challenge our beliefs.
When we can't understand something then the unconscious will distort it so
that it becomes something we can understand. For example when someone commits
an atrocity of some kind we can't understand how a human being could be capable
of that act so we distort our view of that person into them being something
less than human, or animal. Often we will give them a special name, almost
as if defining them as being non-human.
There are people in the world who believe it's OK to kill and maim others
in the name of their religion, ideology or materialistic or expansionist
needs. The average person can't understand how a human being can consider
their heinous acts as being OK so we give these people a special name to
somehow dehumanise them. The special name we give to these people is, of
The third way we filter information is to make generalisations. These are
usually based on our previous interactions with that kind of information,
but of course we have deleted, distorted and generalised those too. It's
no wonder that generally we make very poor generalisations. For example in
the past a dog tried to bite me therefore all dogs are dangerous and are
to be avoided.
After all this deleting, distorting and generalising we are left with our
5 to 9 bits of information a second which make up our internal representation
It's no wonder we're all a little confused at times about what is really
This is where Ishta Spinal Touch comes in.
Your internal representation leads to your emotional state. What you feel
about what is going on. Your emotional state then determines your behaviour.
But as we have seen our emotional state also contributes to how we make our
internal representation. It's a two way street.
However, our physiology also affects our emotional state, which then goes
on to affect our internal representation. Our internal representations can
then affect our physiologies. Your physiology determines how you filter the
sea of information coming to us every second.
So now we have a three way street. Internal representation affects emotions,
which affects physiology, which affects internal representation; and vice
versa in every possible permutation.
Ishta Spinal Touch hasn't come in yet!
All right, how do we influence this three way street? How can we break into
this cycle of influence?
Posture affects physiology. We know this to be true from our Ishta Spinal
Touch training. Correct the posture and the biochemistry changes. Have a
better biochemistry and have a better emotional state and a better internal
representation of the universe. This will change our filtering of all that
information. We end up with a more useful internal representation which alters
our behaviour and changes our reality.
