Eyes can only see a fraction of reality
I was thinking about this yesterday and decided to share it here in case it could be helpful to someone, especially those struggling with 3D.
Our eyes can only see a small fraction of reality, and this is not just a manifestation thing. You have likely seen this many times in your life. Misunderstandings, prejudice, and other such things happen every day, but what is the root of these issues? Assumptions. Our eyes see and perceive things, but we don't know the whole story about them. Our minds naturally tend to fill in the missing pieces that our eyes cannot see, so we end up with a complete story (either accurate or incorrect). What does our mind use to fill in the gaps? Assumptions. However, I will divide these assumptions into two categories:
Primary assumptions: These come from the unconscious/subconscious mind, and are our immediate response to the stimulus we receive. Our programming rules these assumptions, and this is where insecurities, limiting beliefs, and such come from.
Secondary assumptions: These are conscious assumptions, the ones that you decide to believe. These are those "second thoughts" that can override primary assumptions if they're are strong enough in your mind.
When you encounter a situation in the 3D, your first reaction is the primary assumption, whatever that may be, and then you can choose whether or not to have a secondary assumption. However, many people tend to simply go with the primary assumption most of the time, which solidifies it even further as it is not being questioned; it is agreed with. "Agree" is the key word here since your assumptions are whatever you AGREE with, either consciously or subconsciously. If a thought or situation affects you, it is because at some level, you agree with it.
This is why it is crucial to be aware of what you think about things; you can always choose to agree or not, but you have to be consistent with it because your subconscious mind can see through bullshit, and you cannot fool it simply by affirming or doing things without genuine intention and consistency. This is the way to reprogram the subconscious, so eventually, your primary assumptions are positive, and you don't have this inner conflict between primary and secondary assumptions. Personally, I see it as the main goal of a mental diet: achieving complete agreement between primary and secondary assumptions for the best outcome. And that's when the magic happens.
I'll end with one of my favorite quotes:
When there's no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm.
