Deprogramming is Possible

Spider in a web.

Are you ready to update your mental default programming?

I think what’s hard is not knowing where to apply ourselves…spending our energy in places where we’re ultimately spinning our wheels, which is exhausting and dispiriting.

(by design…bastards!)

What I can tell you from experience is that when I started deprogramming as a teenager, and all the work I did after that, is that it’s hardest at first and gets much easier if you stick with it and don’t let the damn programs choke you out.

And there are results. I mean, real, tangible results. 

By the time I was in my early twenties, I was so very different from other people. Not perfect, not super human or anything. But clearly in command of myself more than most people dream possible. And I still had lots of work to go!

But getting that first nasty tranche of programming off you really makes it easier to identify and work with the rest. 

And I did all this without any guide or program or anything, so it’s not some super complex thing. 

I was a kid, for heaven’s sake! I figured it out myself, so how complicated can it be? My only advantage is being able to perceive them.

While I can’t say for sure, I suspect that this dedication to deprogramming and all the advances I made there…these are probably why I remained so balanced and grounded and functional after awakening. I didn’t freak out, I kept my seat. Not because I was awake, but in spite of it. I didn’t get depressed or fall into despair or start a cult or get lost in the no-one-nowhere-nohow club. And that’s most likely down to all I did prior to the Big Bang.

So if in this time we’ve gotten to know each other you’ve found good things about me, qualities that are admirable or desirable, I can tell you that those were firmly in place prior to awakening and were achieved, nurtured and cultivated with conscious effort. Which means it’s totally doable.
