You probably know that the brain produces four different electrical signatures, or "waves." These patterns are known as Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta.
Delta is the brainwave pattern of sleeping adults as well as infants.
The next brainwave state, Theta, is what you experience in those fragile moments just before you fall asleep and just as you're waking up. That's when you are most creative, most imaginative and discover your best ideas. Yet children between the ages of two and six are in an almost constant Theta pattern. That explains the rich imagination, creativity, and fantasy life that characterize this age range.
From Theta, the brain moves up to the Alpha wave pattern, the state you experience when you're relaxed, meditating, or daydreaming. From the ages of six to 12, children's brains operate in a near-constant Alpha state.
Beta is the ordinary, fully awake and functioning adult brain state you are in right now. We move into this brain state at about 12 years of age, and it remains our regular waking brain posture for the rest of our lives.
Now here's where all of this gets interesting:
Alpha-Theta, the brain states that children function in between two and 12, are also the states in which the mind is most open and susceptible to influence and suggestion.
Those are also the years during which most of our beliefs are formed and solidified! Beliefs about marriage, family, money, God, love, learning, school, work, and "truths" about our own self-image ("You're so cute/smart/difficult/bad" etc.) - these are all created in childhood, based on what we see, experience, and are told by parents, teachers, the wider culture, and other influential forces.
Does this mean what you think it does? Yes! All of us are effectively "hypnotized" into certain belief patterns that we then carry with us for the rest of our lives, for better or worse. Once the brain moves into adulthood's Beta frequency, the programming installed during childhood remains operational at the cellular level, locked in and unaffected by the workings of the conscious mind.
Renowned clinical psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Lee Pulos calls these childhood-based patterns "belief trances." They dictate your decisions, direct your actions, and determine each and every outcome in your life: successes and failures, triumphs and frustrations, love and letdowns.
Traditional transformation strategies address the conscious and subconscious repositories of belief, often quite successfully. But far beneath these intellectual planes, your cells maintain the memory of that original belief.
In other words, your cells are compelling you toward very specific situations and outcomes - often in direct opposition to your conscious and even subconscious intentions!
To truly, permanently change your life for the better, you must learn how to communicate at the cellular level. Otherwise, you are doomed to remain stuck in negative patterns.
The good news is, you CAN achieve this deep level of change. Cellular communication is not only possible, but remarkably easy! The secret lies in a collection of amazingly powerful diagnostic and therapeutic tools that are easy to use and that ignite the processes of transformation instantaneously.
